18 Seaboard remains one of our all-time "go-to" spots in Raleigh. The food is always fresh and delicious. We even visited with a large group upon returning later in the afternoon from out of town on Christmas Eve and the staff and dinner could not have been more perfect. Great restaurant on the outskirts of downtown!

18 Seaboard was recommended to my husband and I as one of the better places to eat in the area without blowing our budget. We decided to check it out, and I'm not sure if it's due to the fact that it was recommended (and thus we had high expectations) or if it really was less than par, but neither... More

Very cozy atmosphere and not so large that you weren't able to mingle with everyone. Service was great and the food was excellent.

I have visited this restaurant many times. I have also recommended it to out-of-towners often. I have been there for special occasions, meetings and casual diners. The food has always been excellent. They use fresh local ingredients from local growers and specialize in seasonal specials. The service and atmosphere is great.

We celebrated our anniversary at 18 Seaboard, and it was a wonderful experience. The food is fresh, delicious and the staff is knowledgeable, friendly and service is prompt. My wife absolutely craves the chocolate mug cake. She wants to go back just for dessert! No wonder we seem to return to 18 Seaboard again and again...

I have eaten both lunch and dinner at 18 Seaboard. The wait staff is very knowledgeable, professional and they provide exceptional service. The quality of food and its preparation are remarkable. The she-crab soup is a must have if you like crab meat. The atmosphere is semi-formal during lunch and slightly more formal during dinner. In either case, the environment... More

Recently ate here with a group of 16. Food and service were really great. Our every need was well taken care of from our arrival to departure. We dined in the private dining room. Felt that we were in our own private restaurant. We had a mix of food from all sections of the menu. Everyone said there food was... More

We celebrated our daughters birthday at 18 Seaboard and it could not have been more perfect. The tuna tasted like it was caught this morning and cooked exactly the way I love it. The beef brisket tender and flavorful. Peach cobbler with lemon ginger ice cream was enough to bring me back. Our server, Chris, did a great job guiding... More
