Hidden away along a nondescript street. Good sushi within walking distance from the Hyatt hotel. Great if you are in town for business and just need a sushi fix. I enjoyed the popcorn treats upfront, though it would be great if it came in a slightly bigger bag :)

All I can say is we went in January and I can't wait to go back. Fun atmosphere and the food is insanely fresh and so well prepared. It felt like each item on the plate was thoughtfully placed and thoroughly respected. Run to Sea Bar!!!

Seabar is one of the best restaurants in Buffalo. The meals are so unique and delicious! The chefs are very creative. There's a large variety of dishes to choose from. Seabar has several different sushi rolls, appetizers and entrees. My favorite sushi rolls are the Caramel Crab, the Beef on Weck in a horseradish cream sauce, and the Eel Tempura... More

Sea Bar is a hip restaurant in the blossoming downtown district. While hardly new, it continues to provide innovative cuisine and spot on service. The menu has changed very little over the years, but the offerings are large and varied both in regard to uniqueness and price point. we indulged a little. We started with a sake sampler....five large shots... More

Went to sea bar on a Saturday evening. Called that day and was able to get seats at sushi bar. Perfect because we were getting mostly sushi. Started with a dozen assorted oysters. Very fresh tasting but milder than I actually prefer We also got an octopus salad that was great. Spicy tuna roll was also fresh tasting. Seabar is... More

We have visited a number of times .. Lunch more than dinner .. but each time the service and the food quality is fantastic. Very creative with non-traditional rolls (Beef on Weck Roll) and outstanding standard rolls (Tuna, etc). The Lobster Roll is a must The atmosphere is bright and welcoming and the service is spot on - friendly, prompt... More
