Special Occasion Go To

This is my go to special occasion restaurant. They do a 3 course menu that provides vast selection of deliciousness to pick from. This French restaurant is on the small size but it is intimate and has a clean crisp beach feel. I would highly recommend checking it out.

You would not expect such high quality cuisine looking from the outside. But inside there is superb cuisine from a talented chef. The menu offers a choice of 3-course meals, but the choices may be ordered on an a la carte basis as well. On Tuesday nights wine by the bottle is available from the list at half price. The... More

Three visits in a dozen days to "Sea Restaurant" in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is the perfect place to satisfy our need for comfort food French-style with a south Florida flare. We love this intimate neighborhood spot! Tonight's choices, Linguini with crustaceans and Basmati rice risotto with lime chicken... delicious!! Fixed price or al la carte we highly recommend "Sea". You won't be... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Florida, if not anywhere. From their appetizers to their fish dishes, everything is mouth watering. I'm a real snob about food and find that 99% of all highly rated restaurants are just mediocre. Sea is the exception to the rule. Their homemade pates are delicious, the escargot is incredible. I had the... More
