Always Great

We are regulars and love this place. Consistently freshest fish. The Tuna Bolognese is one of my favorite dishes anywhere in the world. The new French owner has made it even better- she is a super pastry chef.

Sometimes you're willing to pay a little extra when you know that a great chef is in the kitchen, but when he sells the restaurant to some French person and they raise the prices even higher, you have to wonder why you want to pay big fancy restaurant prices to eat in a little store front.

We knew Edith (the owner of The Sea) from her prior work in the restaurant business. She seems to have focused her vast expertise and culinary know-how in this new restaurant. The food was tasteful and the service is first class. We do recommended it highly and wish them success which will no doubt, be coming their way if they... More

The food was the best best thing about this restaurant. Now the food NOT good - the Chef left and Paul. The French waiter is not very nice or welcoming. Together with the food not being good, the rude server and price; it's just not worth it anymore. One more negative, the chairs are not that comfortable there and can't... More

I had lunch here today with a friend. This small storefront restuarant is very pretty and the waitress was very attentive and pleasant. I had the chicken marsala with a salad. Both were excellent. The salad had fresh greens and colorful with dried cranberries, carrots, and candied nuts in a very light vinaigrette. The fresh foccacia was also excellent. The... More

Everything was very fresh but expect to pay $50.00/person which is average for Fort Lauderdale. Location is in strip mall and waitress is the owner who made you feel very welcome. Excellent cream brûlée with lavender flavoring. The menu is fresh fish with French flair.

Went here based on TA reviews and wasn't disappointed. Food was superb. Very unique French touch to seafood dishes that was just outstanding. Service was impeccable as was the extremely friendly and charming owner. If you want a nice relaxed non-rushed evening with exquisite food this is your place. It's small and casual. I wouldn't say the ambience is bad... More
