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.

Truly fantastic restaurant. Nice location and very tasty dishes. Everything we tried was great (veal, lemon sole, scallops). I eat seafood regularly and I can say the scallop dish was the best I have ever tried.

I'm visiting Boston for the first time, and it was an excellent choice for a date with my wife. Perfectly flaky snapper, the clam chowder (though not exactly traditional) was buttery and delicious, and the view over the water was amazing.

Had a birthday lunch with a friend and the service was excellent. The asparagus crab soup was delicious. The mozzarella panini was not as good but we had an amazing seat by the window with a beautiful view of the harbor.

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.

We had a great experience at this restaurant a few years ago so when visiting Boston again, decided to return. We were so happy we did. The ambiance is so beautiful. Nautical colors inside compliment the beautiful energetic harbor view. The food was absolutely delightful. And service was excellent. Highly recommend.

Overall the food was very good but my swordfish was a little fishy smelling and tasting and the black beans were bland. The corn chowder was a 9/10. I'll go back many times.

I have eaten here a number of times over the years. The food was predictably good, but the service was subpar. When our oysters were first served they were not properly shucked and had to be sent back. The chef made good and sent us out new ones and more than we had originally ordered. That was much appreciated. Unfortunately, I had better, more attentive service at the local diner where I had breakfast the prior day than this restaurant. We had to repeatedly seek someone out to get service. Three times in a row we had to request our server's attention and it was not busy at all- just a few other diners. The servers were polite and pleasant, but it was tedious to constantly have to look for them.

Nice place, the service was excellent and actually the Shrimp and Wild mushroom appetizer was quite good. Had the Clam Chowder which had good flavor, but unfortunately the clam garnish was the only clam to be found in the soup. For main course had the scallops which were a bit bland. My wife had the lobster which was average as far as lobster goes. All and all the food was disappointing for such a nice place with good service.

I had a reservation and when I arrived there was plenty of outside seating. However, the hostesses were very unorganized and seating from 2 different locations resulting me in waiting unnecessarily for a table. People who arrived after me ended up being seated before me. The table location as a result was poor.

Our waiter was exceptional. I do not know his name but he was a south American gentleman. He provided a great explanation of the menu and was very informative, courteous and friendly all evening. His recommendation on the wine was spot on. I was there for my wife's birthday but take clients to the restaurant all the time. Exceptionally consistent. Sea food is always fresh and well presented. I recommend the restaurant to people all the time.

Attended the Summer Music Series while dining at the Sea Grille, and also happened to catch fireworks over Boston Harbor. Amazing ambiance, danced the night away on a floating barge. While the food is a bit pricing, the atmosphere was spectacular.

The lemon sole of my guest was dry and tasteless, while my filet mignon and vegetables was not medium rare as I requested and EVERY THING was OPER-PEPPERED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've enjoyed going to the Sea Grill many times, but apparently they had fourth-ranked chefs doing our meals. I will have to wait to decide whether I go back again. Probably not, even though it is right across the street from where I work. Such a disappointment and I feel embarrassed for my guest who was expecting a great meal as I had told him it would be. Shame on the Sea Grill!!!!!!!!!!
