    Since this is a very expensive restaurant you have high expectations not met on our visit. The quality of the main course was variable-eg., sword fish over cooked and too thin a cut. The wine prices were by any measure exorbitant. Their by the glass offerings were poorly described, I assume on purpose. For example: “a fine Italian white“which turned out to be an ordinary Pinot Grigio. They seem to miss the idea of exploring new wines by the glass. Service was very good. Value is really poor. Better value and experience can be found elsewhere.

    I'm always happy with my experience here. The food is consistently very high quality and well prepared. I ordered salmon this time and it was cooked perfectly! The side dishes aren't just tossed on the plate to take space, these are really a major part of the meal as well. The atmosphere is always warm and welcoming; relaxing and congenial without being stuffy or formal. Waiters are well-trained and able to balance chatting with guests and keeping an eye to what might be needed for other customers. Extensive wine list, but well selected and well priced wines by the glass as well. We last dined on the Friday after Thanksgiving and it was a very nice experience. I highly recommend.

    Our party of 4 decided to dine out for Thanksgiving this year. This was the first time for us to dine at the Sea Fire Grill. We have dined at their sister restaurant at Benjamin’s Steakhouse of Westchester several times before. The restaurant was packed for Thanksgiving dinner and the mood was festive. We shared some East coast/West coast oysters, burrata, and grilled Calamari as appetizers. They were all excellent. For entrees we shared their Porterhouse Steak for two and the truffle crab meat pasta. The Porterhouse steak was good but I’ve had better elsewhere. The truffle crab meat pasta was delicious. For sides we shared the truffle mashed potatoes, creamed spinach, and the lobster Mac n cheese (our favorite side dish that evening). Overall, we enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner at the Sea Fire Grill. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars, was because every item on the menu was more pricey, compared to what I have experienced at similar establishments.

    Went for Thanksgiving meal. The service was excellent. The server was very attentive as were the bus boys. The room was lovely. The crab cocktail was amazing. The prefix turkey dinner was something that you would get at a cafeteria. The turkey was hard and dry, the gravy was gelatinous, the stuffing was served in a little lump from the container that it was baked in and was also very dry, as well as a very liquidy cranberry sauce in a sloppy puddle on the plate. The first glass of champagne was barely bubbly from a bottle that had obviously been open for a while and the second glass was fine. Since it was thanksgiving, I didn't sweat it and enjoyed my time especially because of the good service but I will not be going back there. The management was also lovely and very kind to the patrons.

    Once again, dinner at Sea Fire Grill was delicious. The fish is fresh and prepared in creative ways, and the steaks are top-notch, consistent with the quality typical of all of the. Benjamin restaurants. The service was attentive and the staff friendly - no wonder this is one of my favorite restaurants!

    Made a last minute reservation for our 30th anniversary dinner and enjoyed everything very much. Food was really good (a truffle pasta and crab cocktail for appetizers, filet mignon, swordfish for main entrees, fingerling potatoes and a broccoli/cauliflower hybrid for sides), service (our waiter was Diar) was both impeccable and friendly and the restaurant itself was classy. Even on a Monday night every table was full (we had a 7pm seating) and the atmosphere was lively and a little loud. We eat all over Manhattan and will definitely be coming back to Sea Fire.

    One of the best seafood restaurants I've ever been to! We had the oysters Rockefeller and raw clams for appetizers And the 2 pound stuffed lobster and crab legs as main course. Everything was cooked to perfection and so good. Mark our server was outstanding as was the sommelier. Attentive service but not overbearing. Overall a fantastic evening.

    The food at Sea Fire Grill was not memorable. It was just ok. The service was even worse. The crab cake was bready and had red peppers inside which I don’t like. My husband and I decided to share appetizers for dinner. We ordered a dozen oysters, crab cake, sautéed Spanish octopus and lobster salad. While we were enjoying our oysters they brought all the other 4 courses at the same time. When we asked to space them out the waiter said “well that’s how you ordered! Do you want me to take them back and hold them for you?” Well any waiter with any experience would know not to deliver 5 courses to the table at once. Especially when they would not even fit on the table. Also the noise level was through the roof. Would we go back? Short answer “no”. There are much better options in the city. This place is no Marea.
