Sea grille was closed. We were asked to go to the Meritage instead. So we did not really get the Seagrille experience. Disappointing that our reservation was confirmed for Seagrille but the restaurant was closed.

Whilst the Restaurant is being refitted, they have moved this restaurant upstairs. What a great venue for lunch. If this was a permanently open for lunch, it would make the best business lunch venue in Boston.

I and my partner have been enjoying the Sea Grille for years. Loved the location, liked the interior, loved the staff (knowledgeable and professional with just the perfect amount of relaxed banter to enrich your experience, and much of the staff has been around for years), but the food was typically bland, high end country club sort of food. And the wine list only offered over the top choices price wise. We were trapped in Boston this past Christmas in the freak snow storm, and decided to lunch at the Sea Grille. We probably hadn't been for two years, and we were over the moon for how tremendous the menu was, and the preparation of the fare. We spent 4 hours on the waterfront sampling items from across the menu and just don't have enough good things to say about our meal. Go soon to enjoy the butternut hummus, the Jonah Crab Cake is amazing, as was the Sole with an inspired Succotash! Well Done Sea Grille. We've been twice since, and perfect both times. We can't wait to go again.

The seafood grille is a very nice restaurant located right on the historic Rowe’s wharf. The service was spectacular as was the food. I highly would recommend it if you are traveling to Boston and put it on your bucket list if you are a local.
We will be back! John

As always excellent food and lovely view of the harbor. Refreshing to have a quiet place to eat so you can actually speak with and hear your dinner companions. The restaurant does appear to have paid attention to sound proofing and not squashing tables next to each other resulting in a lovely atmosphere.

Perfect location for New Year's Eve dinner and fireworks viewing! My husband and I went to a comedy show earlier and wanted a nice meal to welcome in the new year. Though the NYE menu was on the expensive side, it was a delicious 4 course meal, served in a timely manner so we did not feel rushed. To top the night off, with fireworks out the window and an espresso martini meant 2018 was off to a great start!
We have enjoyed this restaurant in the summer as well. The outdoor seating has a great view of the harbor, and our meal was just as good. Some may find this pricey, but you are paying for the location/view too. Go here with that in mind and you won't be disappointed.

My only complaint would be the parking but that is typical of Boston.

Just a great locale that we have always wanted to visit when in Boston. We were there for Thanksgiving Dinner (5:30); it was not crowded, very pleasant, service was excellent, turkey and all 'fixins' were ideal. We will return in the summer so that we may partake of the harbor dining. There were six in our party and everyone agreed the food and atmosphere were perfect.

Claim to be a restaurant specializes in seafood, but I think it is rather disappointing. What is the most important factor to be a good seafood restaurant? Fresh seafood. It definitely fell short of that standard. To make it worse, the fish dishes were overcooked. Wouldn't go back.
