Perennial fav restaurant. We went the night the rink opened. Food was just wonderfula nd services was better. So saddened to hear the 35 yr institution will close at year end. Better go now before you miss out.

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.

The food was terrible! The prices, I suppose, are for service and atmosphere which are great, but don't expect high quality food.

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.

We had a party of four celebrating Restaurant Week and the menu had a lot of really good options. The crab cake was delicious as were the Portobello fries. We all had different fish entrees and everyone was very happy with their choices. Flan for dessert was amazing.
Our waiter was very attentive and cordial and, since we were sitting outside, we got some of the noise from the tourists going through Rock Center but the little border bushes kept it to a minimum.
All in all a lovely dinner thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.

First time visit during Restaurant Week - it is a decent deal with the special but otherwise is priced more for a special occasion. The appetizers and entrees were quite good, fish was very fresh, but the desserts were a bit disappointing. Attentive service.

We were lucky enough to stumble upon the restaurant during restaurant week. It is lower level of Rockefeller Center. We were able to try some wonderful food from a pre-fixe menu. Our server was attentive but did not rush. It is expensive otherwise but the food and portions make it worth the splurge.

Horrible service, food and prices are not worth it. I received my appetizer before even my first drink, never saw the server, Soup was cold until the end and the food was mediocre. Skip it.
