The Sea Fire Grill

If you want great seafood, expertly prepared and served steaming hot off the pan and fresh out of the ocean, drop your anchor at this wonderful establishment. From the minute you walk in, you will have kind service without an attitude, and staff that does not talk down to you. They cater to your needs, allergies, and preferences. This restaurant is very wine friendly and has a reasonable corkage fee for those treasured bottles from your own cellar. But make no mistake, these guys have one of the top lists in the city, with breadth and depth and reasonable prices to suit every budget. The tuna appetizer is presented beautifully and tastes as good as it looks. The bread is yummy and fresh. The main courses of salmon, halibut, wild striped bass, and crispy sea bass are all very generously sized portions with ample sides on the plate as well as great fries and mushrooms on the side. Desserts were just right to round out a fantastic meal. I've been 6 times and never had a bad dish. The crowd is hip, high energy, and out to enjoy the night. A water wall greets you on the way in and a gas fireplace warms up the atmosphere to almost a boiling point, as the noise level can sometimes be too high. Yet you never hear other people's conversations as the tables are well spaced. Go there! You will be hooked like me, line and sinker.

Wow! This was the best restaurant I have been to this year. We had ordered the stuffed lobster, diver scallops, swordfish and lobster mac and cheese everything was fresh, beautifully prepared and was out of this world. Our waiter, Emille, was unbelievable helpful when we were trying to decide on what wine to order as they have an extensive list. I highly recommend this restaurant whether you are dining as a couple, entertaining friends/clients or a just looking for an excellent meal.

From the amazing food, to the wonderful service Sea Fire Grill does not disappoint. My favorite appetizer is the lobster salad. All seafood entrees are great, as well as the lamb chops (best I've had in city) and the desserts. I have been here at least 15 times and will continue to return for more amazing food and service.

Three nights ago I brought a distinguished guest who has eaten around the world. Only to be embarrassed! His swordfish was pathetically overcooked. I'd asked for my halibut to be lightly cooked. It arrived thin and cooked to death, with two lonely asparagus spears. My bib lettuce salad came old-looking, soggy soaked in dressing; fortunately, the pecans were not candied, as indicated. No point in returning.

Had lunch here during the recent blizzard. Atmosphere is bright, but warm with elegant dining room and a real fireplace. Service was friendly and attentive, without being intrusive. The wine list is exceptional with many by the glass options. The sommelier was the best we have ever encountered. Ask him anything. The seafood is fresh, and inventively prepared. The prices are in line with the quality you receive. I would return in a NY minute.
