This was my first visit to a restaurant since Covid. It was such a treat. Outside area is nicely spaced. Even though I'm fully vaccinated, this was important to me. I felt very comfortable. Food and service were wonderful.

The best Thai food in town, the absolute nicest servers, a sweet patio that I hope continues to exist after COVID, and dogs are welcome. I don't think we've ever eaten anything there we didn't like. Did I mention the excellent by-the-glass wine list and cocktail menu?

We love Sea Thai Bistro and go often. We brought local friends with us this time. Things were mostly good except, the spare rib app was average, a bit bland. The waiter brought the wrong chicken dish. He ordered and served the Chicken Cashew but we had ordered the Basil Chicken, which is much better. Overall, still very good!

It was wonderful to return to one of my favorite restaurants in Sonoma County! Our friends get together was nothing short of outstanding! We did shared plates and thoroughly enjoyed the fried tofu appetizer and the cucumber and avocado salad. We moved on to the drunken noodles, the spicy sweet and sour fish, the scallops, and pineapple fried rice. We ended with the mango sticky rice. Everything was delicious and our server, Paul, was the best!

Love the food here! The Thai Bruschetta is a favorite as is their Panang. Love it. It's so good, it's hard to try something new each time. The drinks are excellent as well. Just a fun way to spend an evening!

Service was not great. The one beer on tap was flat and didn’t taste right. The waiter could care less and mentioned he didn’t like the taste. It sat on the table with no offer to replace it with something that tasted good. $17 for beef and broccoli in a bowl with large cuts of broccoli and a little a little amount of beef drowned in sauce. The hostess wasn’t pleasant at all. Not worth the outrageous price for food that was not really good

I’ve been here many times and I usually always enjoy my experience. Unfortunately, during my most recent dining experience we had such terrible service it has almost deterred me from wanting to go again.

We were on time for a 5:30 reservation. I had read customers are alloted 1. 1/2hrs. for their meal. After we ordered our food the waiter left and said he'd put our order in before he returned for our beverage order. That process took about 15 minutes and the wine and cocktail were finally served BUT... the food order came one minute later. I think it is customary and I enjoy my wine served AT LEAST 5 minutes before being served dinner. In fact, I might have ordered another glass of wine to drink with my meal had I been given the opportunity to drink it before the meal was served. That's all. Food was delicious and served hot and with plenty of utensils. I'm sure we didn't overstay our time at the table.

What can I say I have never had a bad meal there. My friend and I shared the large appetizer platter quite enough for two. We also had the cucumber avocado salad wow awesome! Wish it had a little more lettuce and not as much cucumber but overall I give it five stars.

Everything was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection! They were a bit busy on Saturday evening and service was slow, but it's worth it when the food arrives. We were equipped with a couple of their incredible cocktails, so it was all good. We've been twice in the last few weeks and will definitely return soon. It's too good to stay away!

I really enjoyed the variety of food on the menu, and for someone looking for gluten free there were a lot of options. It was a little disappointing that they did not have gluten free soy sauce.

Always an exceptional food experience. Since Covid-19 and the outdoor dining requirements, they have created a wonderfully covered arbor and heaters. The waitstaff is very pleasant and accommodating. Our appetizers arrived promptly, but the back up in the kitchen was rather long and we had to wait 45 minutes for the main course after our appetizers, however, the wine is excellent, the manager, Melissa is always delightful, and food is top notch. Looking forward to returning to indoor dining.
