Indifferent service and food. Saw my server only when I sent up flares. Sushi was plain and lazily made. What? Me worry?
Excellent service. Great food reconditions.
Service both at the front desk and at the table is always impeccable. The salad is overrated though.
The hostess was very sweet and got us a table by the window. The waiter was kind of weird and kept referring to the woman at the table as the Mrs. I was with my son. Pretty surprising for a NYC restaurant.
Sea Grill is always the best experience- food, wine, service! The vegetables are unbelievably farm to table fresh and have a preparation/taste that is enlightening.
And, my dessert favorite, the cookie tray never disappoints!!
Everything went fairly well throughout the evening. Nothing great, not horribly bad, until a chair that was being used literally broke in half and one of us crashed to the floor. Fortunately no injuries. The server said they have been talking about a renovation for 10 years. 1st and last time.
Had a good time watching the skaters with the snow coming down. Good treatment from the waiter.
Wonderful experience for Valentine's Day. Highly personalized service and great food and fun people watching on skating rink are a great combination.
Very nice and romantic dinner with my wife in Valentine's Day.
Booked the Sea Grill for Valentine's Day Dinner. Prefixed menu included a 3-course meal with options to add on extras along the way. Definitely want to come back to try the regular menu. This place did well in their seafood offerings, the tastes were enjoyable. The service was stellar and representative the experience and caliber of a finer dining experience. Overlooking the Rockefeller Center ice skating rink was a delight and the ambiance of the restaurant was romantic and neat. While they are versed in seafood dishes, the dessert left a lot to be desired. Overall, I would recommend. Skip the dessert and you'll walk away having a fabulous experience.
Best it has been in a long time. The new chef and manager are terrific, and the old staff continue to provide an outstanding product.
I have been here many times and this time we had the worst service ever. I guess if I go back because I do like the food, I will have to ask for my favorite waiter because the one we had this time was never around. Our plates were not cleared between courses and we waited more than a 1/2 hour for each course to come out and it was lukewarm. No opportunity to send it back because no one came to our table. Not sure if the bus boy was trained or not. Usually management comes around to the table to check how you are doing and this didn't happen either.
I was really surprised because this was a special dinner event with a prix fixe menu so I can't imagine it was the chef's fault not getting the food out on time. It sure seemed like a lack of supervision.
The coat check in and departure was the only good service we received. The bread guy did come around constantly offering bread.
For this special Mardi Gras dinner the food was interesting and good, but the service was a bit sloppy. Although servers passed me with trays of rolls and bread to bring to other tables, no one served me until I asked for some. In the four-course meal, I was served the first course, then the third course (entree); when that was finished, my waiter realized I'd never received my second course, so he brought it then! This is most unusual for this excellent restaurant; I hope it's not a sign of things to come.
Mardi Gras dinner. Great food, ambiance and service. Jazz band too!
We loved the food and we had wonderful time!
The meal and wine was amazing but some People of the Service Team need more Education.
The courses were served too fast and it feels like you get rushed. A bit more time between the courses would be nice or a short question if you would like the next course.
We came for restaurant week. The food was outstanding. We were a party of six, and we all came a little early so that we could enjoy happy hour at the bar. Unfortunately, the bar area is very small. So they were able to seat us at the table we were going to use, as I guess there was no large party coming in earlier. So we had our cocktails at the table prior to ordering our meal. The drinks were great. Unfortunately, there were not happy hour drink specials. So we ended up running up a large bar tab. We enjoyed our meal immensely. The good was very tasty, and beautifully presented. Of course, our restaurant week dinner ended up costing us twice as much as what the meal was going for, because of our bar tab, and supplement fees for the surf and turf meal. But that was OK, as we always plan on spending more than what the restaurant week meal is. And it was so worth it.
Because of the size of our party, we sat near the back at a large round table, and really did not get to enjoy the view of the skating rink. However, we did see it when we were walking through the restaurant, and we saw with the smaller tables were able to enjoy the view. Our waiter was very nice and attentive. Everybody who worked that was very nice and accommodating to us. That was a very big plus. And it was really nice being seated at around table, we could all see and speak to each other.
Overall, it was really a wonderful meal, and a great experience.
Very good experience and overall great ambiance. Enjoyed the food. The service from the entrance to exit was excellent.
Good overall, but a bit overpriced.
I went here for my birthday dinner with a couple of friends. I was running late as it was quite nasty outside (POURING rain). I also just simply couldn't find the place (there is an elevator you need to take down etc etc). When I arrived the maitre d exclaimed they were all waiting for me (in a tone of impatience not excitement). It was my birthday (as mentioned in my reservation) and I really was already stressed and sweaty trying to get to my waiting friends so I found that to be rude and a bit much. I thought perhaps because it was restaurant week that they were swamped and needed the tables but it was empty as it was 5:30 pm. Alrighty then. When we finished our meal we didn't even get a chance to finish our drinks and relax as the maitre d asked if we would finish up at the bar as he had a guest/supplier whose daughter said she MUST see the skating rink. Mind you it was raining, no one was on the ice and there were other empty tables with the seating that could have accommodated the gentleman and his daughter. Granted he offered us a drink on the house but I thought it/him to be a bit classless which is ironic because I think tasteful and "above" is what he was trying to emulate. The food was DELICIOUS and the waiter amusing but I wouldn't come back here again. There is fine dining and tasteful and then there is being cold/inhospitable and "stush." What is sad is that it made me wonder if we were getting this treatment because we didn't look like big rollers and I hate to go there or even entertain thoughts like this but I was really disappointed on what was to be a special day/treat.
Great food and bad service. Maybe because it's a touristy location?
Great service amazing view food was delicious
My friend and I visited this place during the restaurant week. Compared to my previous visits to other participating restaurants, this place stands out in terms of food and value. Chef's compliment was delightful, and poached shrimp salad along with crab cake couldn't have been any better for starters. As we moved on to the main menu, oh boy: Cod was served with a pleasing presentation, Surf and Turf showed its classic mix with the meat cooked to the finest level. For desserts, we had the lime pie and apple tart; personally, I loved the lime pie but my friend sided with the tart - but both will fit into your appetite if you show minimal appreciation for sweets :)
The only meh-moment was the complimentary dessert that came out at the end. Each piece looked appetizing but was sub-par in terms of taste. My friend regretted tasting a particular cookie that muddled her enjoyment of the previous menus.
Overall, I would recommend this place. Great vibe, moderate level of noise, and great food (stick to the menu that you chose haha).
By the way, it's nice to watch others skate on the ice rink across the restaurant windows.. but don't stare at them when they fall - my stares drove the fallen ones off the rink in shame.
Everything was great! Service , food, the view
I Love food and well there is no price for great food.
I thought this would be a great place to take my mom in the city. Big mistake!
The restaurant was cold and the famous crab cake (1) was not worth the 25.00. Servers were nice but def overpriced for the quality of the food. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!!
My server was knowledgeable, personable and friendly. The food was delicious. Service was impeccable.
We had a great time....Looking forward to the next visit
My wife and I had a very nice meal and great service. We really loved it!
The food and service were excellent, the ambiance bright and cheery with the ice skaters just outside.
My family and I ate at the Sea Grill during Restaurant Week - winter 2018. I was looking forward to the surf and turf which included lobster ( with a $9 supplement ) to my disappointment, the menu that evening was not with lobster but with shrimp. However my mind ( and stomach ) was set on surf and turf and was promised large shrimps in replacement of the lobster. The shrimp that came with the meal was smaller than the ones that were in my shrimp salad! I didn’t
Think there should’ve been any supplement cost to the surf and turf. Nevethelsss, the oyster, sushi, seafood soup and homemade linguini ( all restaurant week) were delicious.
All courses were amazing! Very tasty, from the appetizers to the desserts. The attention to detail are to be noted. The waiter was excellent and very attentive to our table. All in all, we had a very good time at the Sea Grill and would come back if ever in NY again.
We were 15 min.late and despite of kitchen closing they served us anyway. The food (sashimi and rolls) was great, but the view on Rockefeller center’s ice-rink was the most interesting part of our lunch;)
Table for 4 granddaughters, 2 daughters and grandpa, right on the window as promised.
Nicole, our server was fabulous
The food superb
And amateur hour on the ice was very entertaining to watch
The food was great . The crab cake is a MUST TRY. Definitely going back
The food was amazing!
We had a great time reunion with a friend 40 years! Wonderful ambiance great food!
Service was good. I had the cod entree and it was dull though presented well. My husband had the crab cakes and they were great.
Went for a late dinner for restaurant week after the theater. The menu for RW is diverse and generous. I especially appreciated a RW wine menu. My only problem was the service — everything was rushed from the moment we entered. Appetizers came to our table in less than 3 minutes after ordering. It was the end of the day and they couldn’t wait to get us out. Other tables nearby commented similarly. The waitstaff are pushing their work union and wearing these red buttons. I wasn’t impressed. Don’t really care about a union — care about quality and service
Great service during Restaurant Week. I enjoyed the sea food chowder...I would go back for that alone.
