Wow, what freat seafood!

Took my wife for her 77th birthday and could have not had a better time. We had the seafood plateau with lobster, crab, oysters, clams and shrimp followed by a ceasar salad and key lime pie. Could not have been better - ambience (sat outside), service and food. This is probably our favorite... read more

A very old friend whom I hadn't seen in months decided to come out my way, so we reserved at the Sea Grill for dinner during Restaurant Week. We were seated immediately, given a choice of indoors or out (which was very nice), and offered menus and drinks right away. For an appetizer I chose scallop ravioli, then salmon with... More

The Sea Grill has been at the Rockefeller center for years, and it's a nice place for casual dining. Unfortunately, the restaurant/bar next door has taken over most of the area and has become too loud. Also, I don't know if we just got unlucky, but our server was not friendly or attentive at all. For one, he didn't tell... More

The best part of this restaurant is the location, then you could have a good dinner of fish but, believe me, a dinner to spoil someone is something else. Prices overrated for the quality of the food.

We loved our meal. It was included on the New York Food Week, & we chose from that menu. The Chatham Cod was divine. It wasn't cheap. We had cocktails and a bottle of wine. What the heck we were on holiday! Our waiter was attentive and funny.A great memory.

My girlfriend and I ate here right before I proposed to her near the Christmas tree. The wait staff if to notch and the food is well worth the high cost. It is fresh and delicious!

Second time there, and once more one of the best dinner experiences in New York City. It is not a cheap place to eat, but we were there during NY summer Restaurant Week and the tree course menu was delicious and afordable for an average traveller.

This restaurant has a great view over the ice skating place at Rockefeller Centre. Romantic, quite and well served. A little expensive.

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.
