    Went in for Cohen's 40th anniversary 3 course special, our hostess was super friendly as well as our waiter, service was great. Our only complaints are about the food, not the service. The food was not what I was expecting, the wedge salad was good but everything else was super bland and my chicken was gray in color (it was supposed to be pan seared chicken thighs but it was definitely not pan seared and I am not sure what part of the chicken it was) I could not eat it. My husband ordered the short rib mole, it was edible but not great. The cheesecake they offered on the special menu came in a cup and tasted freezer burnt but their brown butter corn cake was delicious.... best thing we ate all night. We were definitely disappointed, hoping it would be a new restaurant to add to our list but unfortunately we will not be back.

    The ambiance and setting was great. The clam chowder was amazing and so were the desserts. However, I had La Manzana to drink and it wasn’t very good. Not worth it. Also, the Pollo con crema was excellent however the carrots were not cooked at all. Also, my partner has the mole short rib which didn’t taste very well either. The mole wasn’t very authentic. Despite that, the desserts were so tasty. The value of the food is not great overall. Too overpriced for ok food. We left quite disappointed having spent so much money. Will not be going back.

    Our server Jordan was great - enthusiastic and attentive. Ambience was a little boring and quiet for a NYE dinner celebration, would suggest lowering the lights and playing more upbeat background music for mood. Food options were delicous.

    New Years Eve Fixed Menu Dinner. Our waiter, Chris, was attentive but did not rush us. We enjoyed the 3 course meal at a leisurely pace. The courses were good. My Chilean Sea Bass was a bit dry but certainly edible. The first course and dessert were excellent. Thank you for a memorable NYEve .

    Erin was a great waitress. She provided excellent service, very friendly and provided feedback about the food and drink menus. She was able to rush and order of a couple items to allow us to order off the breakfast service menu that was just ending as we arrived. This was a perfect alternative to cooking at home for a holiday get together.

    I was there, celebrating my birthday with my three children. The server Cassie was wonderful and the manager Robert was as well! They treated us with five star service! The servers were all attentive to all of our needs. I felt very special on my birthday and glad that we went there! I definitely will recommend Sea180.

    Seated outside under the heaters with option to use their blankets available. Service was SO wonderful- staff overheard me tell my husband Happy Birthday and brought him out a delicious little chocolate treat with a candle. Swordfish dip, Crab rigatoni and Tamale were very good and large portion! Perfect place to bring family/friends visiting in town, especially with the pretty ocean views! Will definitely be returning often.

    Thanksgiving dinner/ 11/24/22 I hate to say this but I was very disappointed with the meals. I expected a more delicious meal and more food. My daughter had the Chile rellenó and I the turkey. I did enjoy the pecan pie. I left very sad however the service was good. I’ve eaten here before and so I expected better! It was our first time we ate out for thanksgiving and will never do it again because of this experience ! Also, it really hurt my wallet as it was an expensive meal.

    Brussel sprouts were amazing! Entrees were not hot when they arrived at the table. Mashed potatoes were solid, prime rib was cooked well done but we asked for medium rare. The server and managers replaced our dinner and the second one was very good. The quinoa dish was good but again cold when served. Our server did her best to work around the issues with kitchen.

    I was very disappointed. Steak was priced like a steakhouse but quality of a diner off a hwy somewhere. It t was also brought with no steak knife. Clam chowder was more like a potato and corn cream soup. Kids Mac n cheese was spicy and their sundae was pitiful
