On a holiday season trip to New York we decided to try this restaurant that overlooks the skating rink at Rockefeller Center. The menu was a price fixed at $140.00 per person. I ordered a fish that was filleted (except for the six bones that I encountered while eating it). I asked to speak to the manager who said he... More

One cannot fault the Sea Grill's culinary offerings. They are EXCELLENT. The staff is wonderful. The location in Rock Center is delightful. However, a new policy for Prix Fixe ONLY for lunch on weekends has made the Grill inaccessible from a price perspective and less attractive for someone who wished to select their personal dining style. Please change back to... More

My husband and I and our two teenage girls dined here on Saturday night. It was perfect!! We were seated at a window table overlooking the skating rink and Christmas tree. It was magical to say the least... We had a wonderful server who was very informed of the menu. We started with the seafood tower, which included lobster tails,... More

This visit was on Friday for lunch following our Radio City Rockettes show. It was a terrific day with good weather and not too cold. Our lunch group included a 3 1/2 year old who was fascinated by the Rockettes and now was seated next to the windows of the skating rink. (I think the zamboni was as exciting for... More

Really nice restaurant. The food was wonderful along with the service. Since it is the holidays and also the restaurant being packed it was rather loud in there but the food and service made it all worth while.

There is no better place to be for the holiday season than New York City. If you are a big fan of everything festive and Christmas, midtown Manhattan with its store displays, lit buildings and decorations, the Rockettes and of course the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, the best spot in town to grab a bite and enjoy all these is...

Fun break from the busy New York City atmosphere. Loved our window seat with an entertaining view of the ice rink. Nice service and excellent food.

What could be better than having dinner and watching the skaters at the Rockefeller Center? Well, I'll tell you! It's the food and the service! Chef Pete Sieracki should be commended for the burst of flavor he carefully creates in his dishes! The seafood chowder was outstanding as was the lobster dish I ordered! A member of our party is...

You have to take the street level elevator down to The Sea Grill. Our table was by the window eye to eye with the ice skaters at Rockefeller Center. The food was delicious. It was a wonderful experience to watch the skaters and admire the Christmas decorations while enjoying our meal.
