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.

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.

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.

Good overall, but a bit overpriced.

Great food and bad service. Maybe because it's a touristy location?

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.

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!!!!
