Considering the restaurant was no where near crowded during our dinner meeting, service was pretty up and down. Very nice staff just made some mistakes, like bringing dishes out to the wrong people, not attending to drinks, and making us wait to sit/order. Beautiful location in the Marquis but we will not be back.

The Food was good as well as the service. Purpose of the dining experience was for a business meeting. This instance we were seated in the main dining area and the noise was a bit much to carry on a conversation. Other instances at SEAR we were seated in a more private dining area, which made for a good meal and meeting environment. The breakfast buffet is outstanding with many options.

Don’t feel it’s worth it: while we agreed this is a nicer restaurant as far as hotel restaurants go, the actual dish execution is unfortunately not equivalent to the cost. The prices would be fair if the food itself was better. Things were over cooked and overall not as enjoyable as expected. The service overall was good. The menu execution just needs improvement.

Our party of 4 ate early, when patronage was sparse. Food good. Service good. Wine Pricing high, but acceptable for the hotel setting. Food and Dessert pricing high. Sear is useful for convenience if staying at the hotel, but we'll check other local options next time we're in town.

SEAR offers comfortable dining in contemporary setting, which my companion and I appreciated. We started with the lump crab cake appetizer, and having been on a lifelong quest for the perfect crab cake, I think we found it at SEAR. No kidding. For dinner, I ordered the rib eye steak, and while pricey, every bite was scrumptious. Unfortunately, my companion got the scallops, and they were rubbery--either overcooked or previously frozen, hard to tell.
The best part of SEAR though was our waiter, Andrew. A total PRO. The kind of old school waiter who treats customers well. I appreciated his professionalism.
Overall, it's a good place to have dinner.

Made a reservation and assumed they would be prepared. They seated us and then we sat and waited and waited. No one came to take our order and see if we wanted anything to drink. I had to get up and find someone to see who was working our table and try and get a drink. Waited a long time in between courses. Then ordered ice cream for dessert. We wanted an ice cream Sunday. They brought out a bottle of Hershey syrup for us and set it on our table. And then about 10 minutes later our ice cream came out and it was all melted like it had been sitting out in the kitchen for quite a while. We told them we were unhappy about our experience. The manager came over and apologized but that was it. Not a good experience and way below our expectations.

We had a larger party of 8 and we might have been the only guest. 5 of the guest ordered lamb chops, 4 were cooked to the wrong wellness. 2 of them switched their plates, even though that made their sides incorrect. 1 just decided to eat it and 1 just didn't eat. They did take care of that last guest and the chef did send a bottle of wine over to help out. It was a nice evening even with the cooking error, but you would think that a "steak house" could cook the meat to the proper temperature, especially on a slow night
