Food was OK, service was OK and place was OK. As you can tell, for us it was an average meal which was overpriced for the quality we were expecting.

Love this place and it’s criminal that is closing to create a glorified food court.
Big mistake by speyer. They are wrong to make the rock center concourse their version of Eately

Arrived for dinner with the family before a show. Staff friendly and polite. Our server, Brad was friendly, informative and respectful of our time restraint. My 11 yr old and 7 yr old enjoyed the vegetable soup - they gave it a double thumbs up. Will be coming back again.

Delicious food and the view of the ice rink in Rockefeller center was nice. We tried the salmon, swordfish, and shishito peppers and just thinking about the food has my mouth watering it was all so good.

We celebrated our son’s 24th birthday and surprised him by choosing this Impeccable restaurant. Everything was just superb and the ice skating background added to the perfection.

The food was not good and did not come close to justifying the high prices.

The service was average at best.

The view of the Center was the only thing that saved the experience. (Other then the fact I was with good company)


Will not be going there again.

Went here on a date, they gave us a beautiful table next to the window overlooking the skaters and the rink. Food was 5 stars, service friendly but unobstrusive, good variety on the menu, a definite neighborhood gem. Top notch place that has been there for decades and always consistent on quality and experience. Will be very sad to see this place close.

We were in a hurry and the entire staff ensured that we did not sacrifice quality or service due to our short time frame. Totally gracious experience. I can’t wait to return with more leisurely timing.

The seafood was fresh and okay, nothing very special. We had the three-course menu and the seafood platter. Attentive service. The restaurant was almost empty and much too cold to feel comfortable. I could not take my jacket off. Otherwise a nice & comfortable ambience with a view right to the Rockefeller plaza. All in all I really expected a bit more on the food level having basically such high ratings, and higher price level.

On Saturday evening we celebrated our Anniversary at the Sea Grill. The manager and our waiter made sure that we had a wonderful evening. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Over the years we’ve had many wonderful lunches and dinners at the Sea Grill. The restaurant holds a special place in our heart, 25 years ago we got married in the Rock Center Garden then had our wedding reception at the Sea Grill. It was a magical experience. We are so sad that the Sea Grill is closing at the end of the year. We will miss the restaurant and the lovely, very professional staff that we’ve gotten to know over the years.

Attentive service and good food. Nice day so we sat outside, I don't think I'll do that again. Between the occasional pigeon and bee flying around, I think I'll sit inside next time.

It had been years since I dined at The Sea Grill and after my recent lunch there I realized I should not have waited so long! Had an absolutely delightful lunch. The food was divine, service outstanding and outdoor dining beautiful. I will be back soon! Special thanks to our server Costas!

We had a lovely evening sitting outside on the patio. Very few other diners, so it ws quiet. Service was very good, but initially slow (which we didn't mind). For starters we had asparagus with butter sauce (a little overcooked - could have been crisper), crab cakes and clam chowder, both excellent as always. For mains, crab cakes, and two orders of yellow-fin tuna, which was tasty and excellent. Unfortunately one guest had allergies and so could not have the sauce, which meant the fish was rather plain without much taste. For desert, the goats cheese cheesecake with blackberries was excellent, and the key lime pie as good as always. The service was attentive and unhurried. The waiter spilled a little of one guest's cocktail and immediately brought another. The outside setting on a lovely summer evening was a delight. We are so sorry to find this restaurant will be closing at the end of the year.

There was a VERY strong odor of fish when we entered the restaurant for lunch. I've been here several times and have not experienced this before. It threw the whole meal off. Poached shrimp salad was overcooked. All in all a disappointing experience.
