Dropped in for late outdoor patio lunch - beautiful weather and really enjoyed the atmosphere and the FOOD. We both started with chowder which was light with delicate mix of flavours, but the presentation and tastes of the skate with Swiss chard overdid even that. And all this with a very friendly and capable service. Will go back again.

Had a business meeting and brought Seafood tower and sushi to the table and it was tremendous. Several folks had the bronzino and had high compliments. I had the monkfish and it was excellent. Key Lime pie is a great finisher but make sure you have a lot of room left.

We had a light meal and good wine and were intrigued by watching the skaters perform. It was a thoroughly relaxing atmosphere, and the staff did not rush us as we watched.

Love the restaurant ... great for business and for social dining. The menu was excellent where you three appetizers, select a main course, and then a variety of desserts. Love the hustle and bustle of the restaurant

My husband and I made reservations for our Christmas lunch at the Sea Grill and we were prepared to have a meal rushed since it was Christmas Day and everywhere in the city was really busy. We were prompted seated and the service was beyond our expectations. The servers were excellent, the meal was not rushed and the quality was... More

We had the best experience with a view of the skating rink at the Rockefeller center. Food was great, staff was pleasant, and our server went out of his way to get my 4 year old hot chocolate even though their restaurant didn't have it on the menu. Simply amazing!

I loved the food that was served here and the wait staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The decor was beautiful and well put together. One thing that made the place stand out for me was the different types of foods they had as well as the wine menu.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
