All well and good Out for dinner with six family members, we understood Sea had great reviews. We made reservations for a Monday night. To be honest, when I got a... More

We were even more pleased to discover that the new owner is much more charming, the atmosphere is brighter and more welcoming, and chef Carlos Rodriguez produces all the wonderful recipes of former chef Tony...

Dinner was wonderful. The menu had a nice variety of seafood as well as non- seafood options. The food was as delicious as it was beautifully presented and the portions were quite large. Paul was our host and he made us feel so welcome and he was kind and courteous. The restaurant is also beautifully and whimsically decorated. We look... More

I felt like I was at my favorite bistro in Paris while enjoying the delicious Foie Gras and white wine. The new owners of the restaurant are 2 lovely French ladies who definitely have added a welcome French Touch. The restaurant is very open and airy and about 1 block inland from the touristy part of Lauderdale by The Sea.... More

The evening was rather spoiled by the waiter (owner?) inviting some patrons with a dog to an inside table. There was availability outside. When... More
