Gourmet seafood with a French Flair

All the food in this small, friendly restaurant was amazing. Hospitality with a French flair was extremely pleasant. This is not just a cute restaurant in a strip shopping center. It is a gourmet restaurant with excellent service and fantastic food! Try the Grouper!

We had a great meal at Sea last week. Best escargot and duck breast I have ever had in North America. And the key lime tart was to die for!

We went to Sea for the first time since it changed owners. We had to wait a couple of minutes for our table to be ready and one of the owners, Edith Barthelemy graciously offered us some complimentary champagne. The service was warm and very professional. The food was outstanding. The fish is fresh caught, delicious and beautifully presented. Everyone... More

The wines were sold on the spot at special 'tasters'prices..I learned alot and the group we met was great fun...we stayed on for a delish Fr... More

This restaurant used to be the best place for 50 miles. The chef left and some pseudo-French restauranteur has taken over. It's no longer groovy seafood and the prices are LUDICROUSLY expensive. She didn't even bother to change the decorations, still fish on the walls, just empty tables. Oh and we split an appetizer and she graciously didn't charge us... More

Everything from the appetizer thru the desert was amazing. The service was outstanding and the owner caring. She happened to hear my wife comment on a desert people beside us got. Even though we had finished our desert she was kind enough to bring us a second compliments of the house. What a great evening. Thanks Sea.

SEA is in a small strip mall on Commercial Blvd. It is away from the Lauderdale "action." This is a very cute, cozy restaurant that offers an inclusive (three-course) dinner at a reasonable price. The menu choices are interesting and the food is well prepared and attractively presented.

After several visits over the past few years I can say with reservation that this is as consistent and consistently good as any restaurant in the area. Had lunch today with friends and when we walked in the waiter said "welcome back". I thought that just a regular greeting of theirs but when he went on to say "you really... More

I live in France so am used to great and 'real' food --so often America is a disappointment..Sea is the BEST!! I have been several times this holiday and am aiming to try everything on the menu..which is both varied and stellar tasting. I particularly like the fish specials all lovingly cooked and presented but the rack of lamb is... More

New owner continues to make this restaurant better. French bistroesque with chalkboard prix fixe 3 course dinners that are fresh and delicious with exquisite desserts. Nice wine list. Good service (Paul). A MUST try.
