We went there as a group of 3 and sat at the bar section for a snack and drinks. We tried the sushi, a salmon platter and the fish and chips. All of the meals were excellent. We were so impressed that we tried the red velvet chocolate cake and the caramelised fig. The deserts were amazing. The cake was... More

It was a spontaneous decision to go there with a small group of people (7). They were very helpful and attentive, gave us the time we needed and the recommendations were really good. The food was very good, well cooked, interesting, but not too modern combinations. I would go there again if I was around. It must be nice in... More

The restaurant is a little crowded, but the food and service make up for a little disadvantage. The waiters pour drinks, without being asked, are helpful and quite attentive. This is a pricey restaurant, be prepared to spend some money, but if you want great service and food, this is what you pay for!

One of the nicest seafood chowders we have had. Followed by beautiful sea bass and Chatham cod. We sat outside and enjoyed an early evening meal with great wine too. Service was excellent - just the right balance. Would highly recommend if you love seafood.

Been living in NYC for more than 25 years and it happened to be the day after Mother's day. I was walking around the Rockefeller plaza and decided to have lunch. Since every corner was busy, I decided to try this restaurant and boy was I surprised. The service was nothing but Excellent! From the time I was greeted by... More

Fine dining restaurant in Rockefeller Center and overlooking skating rink. Makes for a different view whilst dining. Good menu and food cooked very well. Would not have ordered sides if we had realised main courses came with own veggies anyway. Did not see this written on menu when ordering. Our 7 year old daughter especially loved the chocolate mousse, oreo... More

Sometimes you just have to let your hair down. The Rockefeller Center was getting a make over as it moves from Skating rink to summer party so the outdoor activity was not strong. The food - a big huge sharing plate of Sushi and Sashimi was terrific. As were our martini's. Fun to be the happiest people at the Sea... More
