My swordfish was raw and cold . My lobster and mac and cheese had no lobster and tasted average. Bread was stale. Tiramisu dessert did not taste fresh. I was not impressed with the amount of money we paid. Dissapointed!

This was a special occasion, entertaining friends from out of state. Reviews were promising and nothing prepared us to a dark and an impossible loud restaurant forcing to shout to have a conversation. The appetizers dishes (salads; scallops; calamari) and main course (lamb; fish; and seafood+pasta) were nicely presented and good but not worthy of an average of $80 (!) per person. There are plenty of excellent restaurants in NYC serving as good as if not better dishes for half the price. The meal for 4 adults, excluding alcohol, was $320 ($380 with tip).

On this return visit, we found the restaurant frenetically busy and noisy. Service was polite but perfunctory; food was good overall, though one diner’s fish was undercooked. Bottom line, disappointingly: an ok upscale place to eat, but not dine.

My sister and I took my mom out for Mother's Day. I had the Halibut, my mom had they NY steak and my sister had the crabmeat pasta. For dessert I had the Creme Brulee and my mom had the cheesecake with blueberry sauce. Overall everything was on point. The waiters were so pleasant. At the end of our meals the mother's received a $50 gift card to return and I must say I'm excited about going back. I honestly cannot wait.

This is the second time I visited the Sea Fire Grill and I confess to being a little underwhelmed. The service was fine (but not great) and the food was good (but not great and a little overpriced) but the ambience was pretty bad and that's why I don't have any plans to go back. The room in the back has a fire place and I suppose that's nice when it's working but otherwise it's a nondescript room with hideous ceiling lights. I am not a fan of bright restaurants for evening meals but there was something about the poor lighting and the candle on our table that kept going out (but the waitstaff never noticed or didn't care). It felt a bit like eating dinner in a downstairs basement and I found it a bit depressing. Our bill before tip was about $250 so while the food quality and preparation was fine, it didn't feel like it was worth it.

We looked at top seafood restaurants in midtown, and of all the options, Sea Fire Grill rose to a reservation. We could have stopped at appetizers...octopus was amazing (yes, it's like perfectly grilled chicken with the texture of grouper...amazing). But we went on to main courses, too, with lobster mac and cheese for a side (huge...served two easily) The staff was personal, awesome, and made you feel celebrity. We had the hi-top tables water display (Google the pictures). Go for that vs. the main dining room if you want something romantic (although that wasn't our goal, just saying).

The food, ambiance and staff – wow!!!!

We had an 8pm Broadway show, “the Lion King”, got at the restaurant late for our reservation and informed the staff. We were promised that they would do their best to make sure we make it on time for our show. After one of the best dinner I’ve ever had with the ambiance to die for, we made the show on time!!!

Awesome place, worth the price!!!

Food was really good- the evening would have been great if they only would have helped us get a cab back to our hotel. But they didn’t- so it put a damper on the experience

We made a last minute reservation based on proximity to our hotel. We had pretty low expectations but were very pleasantly surprised. When we mentioned it the next day to coworkers they replied that they had eaten there in the past and also thought it was great. This appears to be a bit of a hidden gem!

If you want to have any, I repeat: any conversation, for leisure or business, don't go!! They added so many tables to the room that you cannot even understand the screaming waiter telling you the specials. And of course, they did not add any waiters to serve many more patrons, so McDonalds looks like a sanctuary.

Trying desperately to be something they’re not. It’s a steakhouse that walked out of the 70s and they decided to throw in fish. Oysters were terrible. Server was pushy. Terrible. Never again.

We were celebrating a girls’ weekend in New York. We had dined the previous year here and wanted to return. Both times we found the service to be friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. The food was well prepared and very tasty. We try to get to NY every year and will continue to save one night to dine here

We recently had the pleasure of dining at what is among the very best restaurants in Manhattan - the Sea Fire Grill. This was our first time there but will most certainly not be the last. Upon entering you are greeted by a very friendly hostess and escorted to your table in what is undoubtedly one of the most elegantly appointed restaurants in Manhattan. The staff is not only courteous but also very knowledgeable about the food and while not being overbearing, always quickly available to meet your every need. The food clearly among the best we have ever tasted. All in all, this was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had in over 40 years of dining in the best restaurants in NYC. We strongly recommend this to anyone who wants a truly memorable dining experience - and if you are lucky enough to have ORI as your waiter, your evening will be even better. Compliments to the management, the staff and most certainly the Chef.

Everything was delicious except the Moscow mule. They insisted theirs was good but was not; ice not shaved; some vodka they couldn’t named used. But they happily removed it from our bill.
