This was our second visit and it didn’t disappoint. We were there with our 2 little girls who as kids, sometimes behave erratically. The staff was very patient and understanding. So I can’t say enough of the great service. Thank you

Food was great. Had the oysters, caprese salad, and bacon slices. For entree we had boneless ribeyes, sirlions, and tomahawk for 2. All the steaks were cooked great. For sides we had creamed of spinach, truffle mac and cheese, and garlic broccoli. Dessert we had the lava cake, cream brulee (least favorite), pecan pie, and ice cream. All in all a wonderful dinner. Will definitely come back to try other entrees like their fish and pastas.

My 7 year old and I enjoyed our Christmas Eve dinner with Sear. It was a full house due to the holiday and the staff did well keeping pace with it. Our meals were delicious and we left satisfied. We would definitely dine at Sear again.

Restaurants are always fully booked for holidays, and this past Christmas Eve was no exception. Sear was extremely busy, yet we never suffered because of this; in fact, we had a terrific experience there. The service was top notch, as was the food. The steaks were perfectly done. The side dishes were excellent. Our drinks arrived on time. We weren't rushed. Sear is not an inexpensive venue; so we were again delighted to have a wonderful Christmas Eve family dinner there. Good job, Sear! And thank you for adding so much pleasure to our holiday dining together.

We went for an early Christmas dinner. Restaurant not crowded at all. Service was awful, mostly inattentive staff. Food good but not worth the price or dismal service.

The waiter gave the impression that he didn't want to be there. I wish the busboy was our waiter. He was very attentive and friendly. I only hope our server shared his tip with him because the only reason he received the tip he did was due to the busboy.

Overall impression is good. Very nice interior, white tablecloths. Service was so so. Slow waiters, nobody asked what we would like to drink. Food is ok. Appetizers were excellent (tuna tartar), oysters super fresh and juicy. Main course was not that impressive. Steak is ok, fish all come with fatty dressing which doesn't fit it well.

Each of the 4 in our party ate something different. One of the 4 dishes brought to the table was completely wrong, but the correct dish came quickly. 1 of the four orders was price fixed. The total cost of our meal was $300 including a 20% tip. We all agreed that the same or better quality food, service, etc. could be had elsewhere for less money.

We went here for my boyfriend's birthday dinner. We dined from the prixe fixe menu, which I thought was an excellent value. For $35 per person, we each got a glass of wine, appetizer, entree, and dessert. There is also bread, cheese, and olives put on the table. The food was very good overall, as was the house wine. The ambiance was perfect for the occasion and I will definitely be dining here again.

This was the 3rd time we've been there with the last time being a few years ago. It's still as good as the last time. Maybe better. I had a ribeye steak and it didn't need any salt! The flavor and tenderness made it a superior experience. But watch out for the hot plate. They warned me but in cutting it I forgot and blister-burned my index finger. Applied ice for about 15 minutes, the sting went away and I continued to enjoy my steak. Only had a salad and a glass of house cabernet which was fruity and dry so I really enjoyed that too. Pretty room. Valet parking. All in all a seamless and scrumptious experience!

I've eaten here 5 times, but each time was an "occasion" (read: large tab). I've noticed a steady decrease in service and food. When I'm spending $350+ for a dinner for three, I expect everything to be excellent. The shellfish on the seafood tower (not served on a tower, by the way, if that's a presentation you enjoy)was fresh and delicious. The wait service was not attentive. Empty glasses were left to gather, and I had to ask them to remove them. I would have appreciated crumb removal. The filet mignon was good, but not outstanding. With so many fine restaurants in this area I've decided the Sear House is not longer a consideration when I choose to entertain. I just have to add: why can't they find a manager who will diligently oversee service and keep this venue an A+ destination for special occasions or elegant dining?
