It's been years since I dined at Sebastian's. Happy to say that our visit tonight was absolutely delicious and very much ilved up to expectations. There's something special about visiting an old favourite for sentimental reasons, but still have deliver on every level. Great service, delicious food, relaxed dining - just perfect.

We have dined often at Sebastian's over the years and the quality of the food and the service are consistently very good. The tuna is excellent although it is no longer coated with sesame seeds unless you ask and wasabe potato cakes have been replaced with other sides. My wife had the chicken dish which was delicious. The warm wheat... More

After working outside all day, went here for dinner. Small and quiet dinner. Menu not elaborate but what we had was quite tasty. Nice split dessert to top off meal was wonderful. My wife said we'll be back.

Being obvious tourists can at times be bad, as trating a tourist badly has rarely an adverse effect. They never come back anyway. Here, it was perfect. We had a nice meal, our little daughter's extra wishes were being catered for and the wine was excellent (and at half price on Thursday). What's not to like? Would we come here... More

Warning!!!! This restaurant has taken away your freedom of gratuity. We were not a group of people, but only a husband and wife couple. This is a horrendous act of restaurant inconsiderateness. Please see photo of receipt with Sebastian’s red stamp on the receipt indicating “GRATUITY INCLUDED”. The receipt on the right side of the photo shows red stamp and... More

We went out for a romantic dinner to my husbands favorite restaurant. The lobster bisque and Caesar salad were very good. My husband had the sesame tuna and it was delicious as usual! Perfect! I had the steak and crab cake and it was also very good. The dinner was very romantic and we were able to sit in the... More

This meal for three cost $138.00, including a 1/4 glass of red wine for $14.00, and I ate better at the Hy-Vee grocery store cafe yesterday. No hyperbole - almost one hour wait to receive rolls and a mixed greens salad, another 30 minutes to receive steaks bathed in salty brown sauce, overdone carrots and cold, fried, and obviously frozen...

My husband and I like to go here 5-6 times a year and split the pear salad and the ahi tuna dinner. Just enough for two aging Americans. Everything I've had here has been excellent.

Had the special Sea Bass and Scallops tonight. It was one the best meals I have had in a very long time. Bread was amazing and wine they suggested was a perfect match to the food. Will go again. Was a little expensive but if the food is this good it is worth it!

My husband and I love to go out for a nice dinner and drinks about once each month. The place we had been going to started disappointing us so we tried Sebastian's Hideout. We had been before and I don't know why we stopped going. The staff was friendly and informative and the meal was GREAT. We had enjoyed our... More
