Nice place, decent service & ok food. The waiters would come then there would be very long wait periods between the next time you see ANYBODY. Our waiter was good, he forgot a few items but he made up for it. The food was higher than most restaurants and less fulfilling, I has lamb chops but they were small. The place is very beautiful & the host, bartender & waiter were all nice...

This is a high end restaurant with beautiful prepared steak and seafood. This is not an inexpensive place to dine, expect to pay at least $100 per person. The food is fantastic and the service is great. It is on the bottom floor of the Hilton in SanDestin. There are no windows and the lighting is cozy but a bit dim. There is a piano in the restaurant and live music but only piano, no singing. It is nice but can be a bit loud when having a conversation.

Great dining experience for birthday dinner. Request wine room is a must! Piano was a nice touch! Food was absolutely amazing! Service was even better. Lots of wine options with lots of help in choosing. Several complimentary samples from the chef were offered. This is not a cheap dinner. But it’s outstanding value for the quality of the service and the food we received!!!

My wife and I dined st Seagar’s this past Wednesday evening on the recommendation of friends. During our visit the restaurant was fairly empty with maybe 20 guests total dining between 7:00 and 9:00 on. The lack of a crowd in this big restaurant made it feel a bit somber lacking the energy we’re used to in a popular restaurant. Granted, it is off season in Destin. After waiting a few minutes for someone to help us at the hostess stand we were finally escorted to our table and greeted by Fred, the team Captain, Joe our server and Kevin the manager. Everyone was friendly and accommodating and as a team they were on top of everything. We give the service 5 stars. We each ordered s salad starter (panzanella and wedge) which were both tasty. The wedge was exceptional. The Panzanella was definitely for a foodie. Too fancy for ya and lacking substance. For dinner we enjoyed an 8 oz filet and a 10 oz filet accompanies by sides of mashed potatoes and sautéed mushrooms. The steaks were slightly over cooked, but not so much that it ruined the experience, and the texture and quality was good, but not great. We’ve definitely had better. The mushrooms were a let down, but the mashed potatoes were out of this world good. We finished sharing a tasty berries and cream. All in all a good meal, but overpriced for the food quality and on the high end of most high end steak houses. Dinner for two each with two drinks was $275. Located inside the Sandestin Hilton, the restaurant is a bit difficult to access and parking was hard to find with no valet option. In summary, I’d go back and give it another try, but it’s not our favorite steakhouse on the Emerald Coast.

The service was impeccable, the food outstanding and the ambiance inviting. The only reason to consider returning is the PRICE. My husband and I do not drink and only had ice water with our meal, so alcohol was not a factor in the total. $175 before the 20%tip making it $210.

We have been coming here for a few years now and the food is always wonderful! The only thing I would complain about is that we were seated about 20 minutes after our reservation time and there were a few open tables. Besides that, everything was perfect! This visit was for our anniversary and such a great place for that!

Arrived at 8:15 for a 8:30 reservation. We were advised that there was a party of 65 that running behind and we would not be seated until 8:30 or a little after. This was no issue. Went to the bar area to get a drink while waiting for our table. The bar area was very busy due to several people eating at the bar. So this caused multiple failed attempts to flag down a bar tender. This was due to the bar being full, lack of staff awareness and the piano player standing at one end of the bar that would normally be the only open spot for someone to walk up to the bar to order a drink when every bar stool is taken. You can’t very easily lean in around a person that is eating at the bar to get the attention of the the bar tender. Anyway, our table was ready only about 10 minutes after our reservation time. If I had been served a drink during my wait, all would have been great. But still, No big deal. Ok, so now seated at the table to get ready for a wonderful meal. And now we wait. We watch a waiter doing a steak Diane for another table.... this is entertaining, but we have not been greeted, given water, no drink order, nothing. About 10 minutes or so after being seated the waiter that did the stake Diane came by and gave us a very quick greeting, asked if we would like tap or bottled water, dropped off and iPad for my wife and I to review the drink and wine list, took our teenage children’s drink requests and left. A few moments later we got our water and the kids drinks. A manager also stopped by and apologized for our wait because the waiter was doing the table side serving. No problem, but getting a little impatient at this point. Then the wife and I review the drink and wine list, decide what we want and sit at the table and wait... nothing. Another 10 plus minutes go by. Now we have been seated for 25 minutes and our drink order had not even been taken. We left... Very disappointing and embarrassing. I picked this place for my wife’s birthday. Ugh... good job.

This restaurant is one of the those rare venues where you know it’s something different as soon as you walk in. From the made-for-you Caesar salad to the perfectly cooked filet mignon and the unbelievable bananas foster (also cooked at your table) the food was incredible. Add to that real personal service makes it one of one on my list of places to go when you want to reward yourself or that special someone. You will not be disappointed.

Having dined in fine dining restaurants all over the world we found Seagars lacked finess on many levels. My lobster bisque was just warm. The Dover sole was delicious but we had to take home half of the meal. Portions obviously catered for the USA market as we’re all courses first time ever we have been offered a take home meal from this calibrate restaurant. Although their website states a dress code most guests were in holiday attire.

We had a large party of 8. My Seared Grouper was bland however the wilted spinach and potatoes that were part of my entree were very good. Everyone else thoroughly enjoyed their food. The cocktails, dessert and service were outstanding. I was disappointed in the Grouper but that will not keep me from going back because other than that, it was a great evening.

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Seafood Tower was incredible. The table was made up of 8 Birthday girls. The captain of our table was excellent! Everyone loved their choices. The steak was divine and the Grouper was off the chart. Service was well-timed and friendly! Wonderful way to celebrate friends birthdays!

We were super excited about the table side Ceasar salad, we are seasoned veterans of such and as it is a lost art really hoped for a good one.....sadly all the pomp and circumstance did not live up to anything we have enjoyed in the past, they used ROASTED GARLIC, unheard of and made it very sweet. Lump crab appetizer ended being more fried green tomato appetizer, Dover sole was on point, can't really muck that up. Bread service was held until one ordered even though we had ordered wine, and the bread was two small pieces of stale sweet baguette. An expensive disappointment.......
