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.

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
