The waiters were very friendly and attentive. It was our anniversary and I felt that they went out of their way to make it a special night. The seafood, especially the salmon was great! Highly recommend the grilled calamari. Best I’ve ever had!

This was our first time at Sea Fire and it was outstanding. Ari was the perfect waiter made great recommendations when asked. Food was superb, noise levels were low, the perfect place to catch up with a good friend. I had the dover sole, bone in and de-boned table side, and my friend had a bone in steak. He said it was the best he had ever had and he dines out at the best restaurants around the world. It was a great meal in a perfect setting. Thank you!

The price of the restaurant is way over the value of what you’re getting. The service was very good the food was very good it should be a two out of five star pricing for what you’re getting the pricing that we received for our meal was a 4 to 5 star pricing and did not match up to the food nor to the service.

While I’m waiting for my partner, I spent the time at bar counter. Bartender‘s hospitality was very good so I enjoyed that time.
Main dishes were marvelous and beautiful.
My partner and I enjoyed much and want to visit the restaurant again.

My 2nd time to this beautiful seafood creation. I am obsessed with the Lobster bisque. So worth the price. The food and service are about as good as anywhere I have eaten. Thanks to the mgmt ,service staff and especially the chef for consistently keeping the bar high! See you next time...

Bar doesn’t seem to match the high quality of the restaurant part of the establishment. Frenzy, chaotic bar tenders running around like chickens make for a less than calm and relaxing atmosphere after work. Of course the noise level as time passed increased to a level of total annoyance. Ad extraordinary $$$ drink prices and you want to run out of there fast. The restaurant itself is superb with great food and wonderful service. This is not a 5 Star restaurant but considering the location they think they are and naturally charge insane prices
Ask the price of the specials before you just order
Unless you have money to burn. We will go back to the restaurant but my drink will be at the table ...

First time eating at this restaurant and it exceeded my expectations from a service and food standpoint. I had the Blackened Swordfish and it was well prepared and delicious. Service was top notch and the waiters very attentive. Their attention to detail and making you feel special was very evident. I will be back!

Our second visit to this restaurant. Food and Service was good but management was awful! We had a party of 3 and a 7:30 reservation. We were not seated until 7:45 and at that time, we were seated in the middle of a 30 and a pair of 20 tops and right next to a 5 top. The noise level was excessive. The manager said he would move us to the main restaurant but never did. We watched him take group after group to the main dining room and simply ignored us. He sent an associate saying that since we were so far along with dinner, they would offer a token 20% discount. We saw the manager on the way out and he basically called us liars to our face, saying he did not seat others which is totally bogus. We will not be back and would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Noise level is outrageous - you cannot speak to the people at your table without raising your voice.

Service was very fast, after an hour and ten minutes we had already paid our check and were getting ready to leave when the Maitre d asked us to give up the table - this rudeness entirely ruined our evening.

Food is ok - Branzino comes with a caper sauce which is unmentioned on the menu. My wife doesn't like capers.

Not a fine dining experience, but with fine dining prices.

Outstanding seafood in the heart of Manhattan with a lovely fireplace (gas) in the back room. Very hectic around 7 pm - number of business diners but also it was December so many parties and revelers out and about NYC. Will definitely return for very high quality seafood of all kinds!

As other reviewers have mentioned, having a reservation here only gives one a general idea of then you may be eating. We had a 7:30 reservation and were seated at 8:20. I must say the Manager was apologetic and very nice, but his explanation of a "large party staying too long" was a familiar story. He offered us a cocktail on the house and checked in with us every ten minutes. Once we were seated the service was very attentive and professional. The food was excellent in all respects. If you go, keep in mind that dinner would be quieter in Grand Central Station. The noise level is several decibels beyond deafening.

Well located in midtown east, SeaFire Grill is a polished seafood restaurant that draws a professional crowd. Ambiance is well done, menu has a good variety of shellfish and seafood options. Also has a few steak options for people who want meat. If you have a full meal (app, main, dessert, alcoholic drink etc, it will likely run $100-110 pp after tip & tax.
I brought my team (5 of us total) for Christmas outing. Cost $600 (before tip)
Good restaurant, I would go back.

This restaurant and their service were excellent. We hosted a business client for an earlier lunch and from the moment we entered all was top notch. Ensuring the entire party was quickly taken care of, coats taken, and seating arranged left a great starting impression. The excellence continued through the meal itself, the lobster bisque was great and the yellowfin tuna could not have been better. The entire party was also very pleased with the swordfish sandwiches and coffee. I will definitely bring future clients to Sea Fire Grille.

Our SeaFire Grill dinner was really lovely - delicious good, great service, and pretty good ambience for a crowded restaurant. My only complaint was that we made reservations for 8 pm, and we were not seated until 8.45 pm. I’m usually pretty laid back about getting seated late, but 45 minutes seemed a excessive (and I was hungry!). The food and service were terrific, though.

Really excellent seafood. The calamari was outstanding as were each of our three main courses. Seating was comfortable at a table for 4 towards the rear of the restaurant. The noise was high but the place was packed and, well, it’s NYC. Initially, our experience was poor as we weren’t seated until 30 minutes beyond our reservation but the manager comped a round of cocktails and we thought that was fair. And, again, the quality of the food caused us to forget the early issue. We’ll put it on our list to return the next time we visit.

Service and food was impeccable. Alex (manager) made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Arben (our service) was amazing, friendly, and knowledgeable. They both made sure to check on the table just enough and were on the ball with refills and courses etc. I have a dairy allergy- so Arben made sure the chef could accommodate my allergy while still being able to eat what I had hoped to order. Great for business lunches and quiet conversation. Some of the best octopus I have ever had! Crab pasta was also amazing!

Visited this place for my partners birthday. the setting was perfect. They took note that we were celebrating and everyone that we met wished him a happy birthday. The service was exceptional, our server made sure we are comfortable and happy and checked on us regularly. The wine was impeccable and our meal was the best.
At the end of our dinner, our waiter brought out ice cream with chocolate and a birthday candle for my partner and wished him happy birthday again.
our whole night was amazing and I will be dining again. thank you for the outstanding service.

The Sea Fire Grill is an outstanding dining venue. From the moment you enter the front door to your departure, you experience not only superb cuisine complemented by a first-class wine list but top-notch service. It is quiet and attentive with a friendly and professional wait staff. We had reserved The Sea Fire Grill for our special evening out and it did not disappoint. A must when in NYC.

We had an 8pm reservation. It was very crowded but were told we’d be seated shortly. After two rounds of drinks and after 9pm and getting a bit confrontational, we were seated and our drinks comped. Food was very good and service was very good afterwards. Nice people, not sure if we’ll return though.

We thought that the food was extremely overpriced, considering it was listed as a moderately-priced restaurant. The food was okay, the striped bass was good and so was the creamed spinach, but the butternut squash and crab soup left something to be desired. we sat at a small table for 2 and could barely hear each other talk because the noise and the place was just so loud. When you pay $45 for a small piece of fish and $20 for a cup of soup and $12 for creamed spinach and $15 search for a simple glass of white wine, it just was not worth it. We will never go back.

The host was rude and disengaged. They were making fun of other customers as we were checking in. The tall host with the beard was extremely cold when we asked for a high chair (yet written clearly in my reservation). For that alone I would never go back. We witnessed the host and team be cold and a bit rude to several others checking in.

Food - over priced and disappointing. Tuna - dry and saturated in soy sauce. Baked clams were huge and rubbery. Even the side salad was drenched in honey. The branzino was a little better and the only thing we happily ate.

This large restaurant didn’t capture the holidays given their location. I felt sorry for many other guests as well. We were clearly not the only guests surprised disappointed by this.

I have been here once before and wanted to take my wife somewhere special for our last night in NYC. We originally booked for 8pm but the staff happily accommodated us an hour earlier. Sea Fire Grill did not disappoint! We shared an enormous crab cake to start then my wife had the Sea Bream special recommended by our excellent waiter, whilst I had the seared Yellow Fin Tuna which was outstanding! To complement a bottle of the Alpha & Omega unoaked Chardonnay was delightful.
