    Was at Sea Wolf to celebrate a Birthday. It ended up being 6 of us and we had an amazing time. From the Painkiller, Oysters, Little Neck Clams, Fried Calamari, and Fried Chicken Wings, to the French Fries. All delicious!!!

    When you arrive you are greeted like a welcome guest. It was a hot night but sitting inside was more oppressive than sitting outside where there was a breeze. The waiter was prompt and attentive. I found the chairs uncomfortable. Where the restaurant failed was the food was at best mediocre. Not expensive just nothing to return for. Biggest sin my beer was not cold.

    I had no idea this wonderful spot for dining and enjoying a view of the East River is in existence. The staff are very attentive and accommodating. I had the lobster roll which was a very substantial, in fact a “doggie bag” was needed to take half home. I would recommend adding greens to the beet salad. I will certainly return and have already touted Sea Wolf to friends

    Extremely rude hostess. Who made every effort to be unpleasant and curt. 50 minute wait time for an appetizer after being seated. Inattentive staff that kept the tiny tables filled with plates and too many glasses. Greasy bland burger that was presented on a soggy bun. Lobster mac & cheese had zero flavor. The grilled lobster was pretty good. Server wasn’t interested in apologizing for the 50 minute wait time for food

    Staff was good. Food just really subpar. Fish not fresh at all. Flavor not great. Woke up at 1am doubled over in pain (from either lobster roll, bites of clam chowder, or oysters). Really wanted to like this place because close to apt and on waterfront and am not that critical of restaurants. Understand seafood is expensive esp these days but price doesn’t match the quality of the food.

    Made a reservation for 2:30 PM - arrived and told we have to wait until 4 PM to order food and we could only eat from the raw bar menu. Never supporting this establishment ever again and will not recommend.

    Great food and atmosphere. Unfortunately the windows of the restaurant were all open on a very hot day meaning we were sticky and sweaty during our dinner and then had to rush to finish when the mosquitos started biting us.

    Tiny portion of fish and chips. Quite expensive for what it is. Nice location but it was extremely hot, we asked to sit inside - we were told there was nothing available inside. So were sat outside, yet a number of tables remained vacant inside throughout our meal.

    Bartenders were great. Had a reservation that meant nothing because we still had to wait over an hour for a table. Our waitress was horrible! Roll on the lobster roll was stale. Overall not worth the price.

    While the view is beautiful, the food & service did not live up to any sort of standard. The portions were TINY and the food was mediocre at best. The service was so incredibly slow and not very friendly. When I tried calling to modify my reservation I was met with a non-stop ringing phone and when I finally reached someone he was very dismissive. I wish I had seen the reviews about the service before booking. I really hope the restaurant looks at the many, many reviews about the terrible service and makes an attempt to improve because as a fellow restaurant employee, their service is well below the industry standard for the price the restaurant charges and the ambience they attempt to create.

    This place would be awesome if the service was better. I’ve been there twice, different servers, both need more training or initiative... or something..got the wrong stuff, was charged for extra things we didn’t ask for, took three hours total because everything took so long. I would go back though, to give it a third chance. The ambiance was nice when it is not packed.

    Overall, this establishment was underwhelming. It provides a beautiful view but the staff needs to be trained, the food was poorly prepared and overpriced, my husband’s lobster roll was old and dried out, and the establishment needs a deep clean (especially the bathrooms).

    The view was gorgeous! I'm giving Sea Wolf an average review because it was a very busy father's day at the restaurant. And I'll give it another go before I decide if I would go back after that. The Manager was great and you could tell it was an intense day. The menu was solid, the food was tepid. If I was the owner of the restaurant I would totally rework how to bring the outside in.

    Place needs to get its act together. Good people working there, but they are all overwhelmed. Reservation system is simply wishful thinking, we waited an hour for our reservation. Food was fine, view was amazing. They just need to get better organized.

    Great location and ambiance and well designed indoor/outdoor seating! And really excellent, friendly service. Is it the best food in New York? Definitely not, but the food is ok (and the happy hour oysters were good!) and I would return for the location and generally pleasant experience. Probably not the place for a serious foodie but I would still recommend it, especially as a fun place to take visitors to NYC for the beautiful view. Also appreciated the kids menu and crayons.

    Waterfront seating with great food! We did the oysters for happy hour and had lobster Monday madness that included unlimited frozen painkillers and beer. Lobster Mac was great and they did not skimp on the lobster. The lobster roll and fries was so good too! Those were some perfectly cooked fries, man. I will definitely be going back!

    My guy surprised me with a nice lunch date and it was amazing. Nice view and great food and drinks. The seats tho? Not so much. They have these extremely uncomfortable blue chairs that I actually had to switch out for another because they were that bad. Everything besides those chairs were amazing.
