We visited the Sea Grill on our first evening in New York City, just a short walk from our hotel. The restaurant is in a great position overlooking the Rockefeller (ice rink in February) it made for a lovely winter atmosphere!

Went here with another couple during restaurant week and chose the four course special which was superb food in a wonderful setting. Service was top notch too. Even with the restaurant week price break, it was expensive but definitely worth it.

We visited here for drinks twice during our stay in New York and enjoyed the Cocktails. The first time we were sat at the bar and had a lovey time and great service, we even spent a lot of the time talking to the local staff which made it very enjoyable. The second visit we sat on one of the... More

Three of us chose to eat here after a long evening walking around all the Christmas sights and it had a welcoming vibe. We shared four dishes, all of which were very good and two desserts both of which were amazing!! It was a great end to our night and lovely to sit and watch the skaters outside as an... More

We've eaten lots of steak on our travels, but this was quite simply the best we have ever tasted. It was cooked to perfection and melted in the mouth. We had a fantastic experience here, not only was the food first class, but our waiter Nicolas was a dream. He was funny, attentive and interacted very well with us. It... More

Definitely not the best food but the view can't be beat. We were here for dinner on January 2 to celebrate our daughter's 9th birthday. We were lucky to be seated at one of the best tables at the window with amazing views of the rink and Christmas tree. The skaters were very amusing and we witnessed the obligatory holiday... More

The Sea Grill is a nice mid-town restaurant. The food and service are consistently good, if never great. At all times, because of its Rockefeller Center location, it is heavy with visitors, along with local business-people who dominate at lunch. In winter there is the added feature of a wall of windows on the scenic Rockefeller Center ice skating rink,... More

Went on New Years Eve so our experience may be slightly different to what you'd get on a standard night. Service excellent and meal was fine but definitely room for improvement. Menu was limited because of it being NYE which we were OK with. However I choose scallops, my favourite, and after finishing my starter I was told that the... More

We attended the breakfast with santa here which came with skip the line tickets to skate on the rink. Last year, we had done the same program but at Rock Center Cafe. This year, we chose The Sea Grill because our available date was not open at the former restaurant. We were happy with the change. The offerings here were... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
