The food was decent; the service, however, was not great. Certain dietary issues were not handled well & the waiter’s general attitude was dismissive. While we might return for the food, we are hesitant given the level of service.

We, unfortunately, sat in the grill area. This was our first visit to this restaurant and saw the dining room which looked great. Little ambience where we sat and server, although pleasant, was inexperienced and unpolished. If the goal is to provide a premium experience improvements are needed to elevate the experience in , what appears to be, a secondary area of the restaurant.

Delicious as usual.
Got the Porterhouse steak 🥩. Cooked perfectly
Nice side dish of Brussels sprouts with bacon.
I love how they start you our with a plate of dried cheese & olives. & a tossed salad to start.
Finished with a desert (tiramisu) which was outstanding & complimentary. A nice way to end the perfect meal.
Great wait staff who is always great. Can’t wait to go back!! Two thumbs up for Sear !!👍👍

Being from outside the area we still have a history with Sear house as we had our sons rehearsal party dinner there a few years back. The food and service brought us back and didn't disappoint. From the moment we sat down the staff who waited on us was truly attentive yet not overbearing. Our meals were
all fantastic and prepared as we had expected they would be. Will return when back in the area surely!

I have enjoyed Searhouse on a number of occasions. This was the first time I was not 100% satisfied with the service. It was good but there were little things I feel a great restaurant would not do. They were very anxious to remove the bread from the table. I had to grab a piece of bread off my plate as the waitress was removing it from the table. I ordered filet mignon and it was brought butterflied. I don't care for that. I didn't specify that and the menu didn't state that was how it was served. A filet mignon should not be served butterflied unless the customer requests that. When they brought the entree's they gave my guest the steak I ordered and me, the one he requested. As they were serving it we asked the server which was which because we could tell one was well done the other rare. He insisted he was serving the right one to the right customer. Once we each cut into our steaks we switched them to match our order. The food was excellent and the ambiance is very relaxing and pleasant. I only hope the service improves.

My friend suggested we go to Searhouse when another restaurant owned by the same people was booked up. I thought the ambience was really beautiful, the wait staff very attentive, and the food was really delicious, and I'm hard to please! I loved the brussel sprouts, they tasted like candy. We will definitely be returning, many times!

An outstanding steak restaurant which also has an rooftop area for when it is warm and dry. The only issue is that the whisky drinks are initially very skimpy. We had to complain the last two times were were there and it got corrected with our second round. If this was fixed it would be 5 stars for us.

Steaks & seafood are top quality, though a bit pricey. Good salad comes with entrée.
