18 Seaboard now serves Brunch!

This is one of my favorite places in Raleigh and now they serve brunch. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. What more can you ask for? Also, prices are about the same as anywhere else in Raleigh for brunch. Love this.

This restaurant is well attended by Government employees during the lunch hour and by people in the evening. The owner/chef makes it a point to come around to each table to speak. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is well appointed.

I have eaten here on several occasions and its always great. I usually have the pork, but the fish is great too. Prices are reasonable for what you get.

Have been here many times and never been disappointed fantastic wine selection and staff will help make selection if you're not sure. Atmosphere casual but not t shirts (thank goodness there are still places that discourage that). Go for a wine dinner if you can. You'll need to call and ask about it. Best wine dinner in Raleigh.

Been a couple of times here now, always been great food and excellent service. It's a simple decor but tastefully done. We've always reserved, but there's been people waiting at the door for tables (drop-ins I presume) when we leave, which is a good sign of it's popularity. Great for a romantic date or dinner with friends. We'll be back... More

I made a reservation for our anniversary on a Sunday night. The staff was wonderful and acknowledged our anniversary a few times during our dinner. The server congratulated us, the manager stopped by and thanked us for coming on our anniversary, the chef sent out some complimentary bites for us to try, and the pastry chef sent out a dessert...

I've been to 18 Seaboard several times. It is one of our favorites and our "go to" place for special occasions. The food is consistently wonderful and the service is top-notch.

We've eaten at 18 Seaboard probably 6 or 7 times and have consistently been impressed with both the service and the food. The staff is attentive without hovering, and they truly seem to want to ensure that you have an enjoyable time. On several of our visits, the chef has stopped by our table to ensure that we're appropriately taken... More
