Favorite Sushi

Sushi is very fresh and nicely presented. We started with a bowl of Miso and a small Udon Noodle with Tempura Shrimp. The small Udon & Shrimp could be a meal if you're a light eater. Noodles are plentiful, you receive 2 sprimp and flavor is very good. Miso bowl is small and served hot. We ordered a mixture of... More

Sushi is not typically my first choice, but I LOVE Sea Bar. Everything I've ever had here is fresh, flavorful and really well prepared. The waitstaff is always helpful and fun. I even like some of their non-sushi food...meatballs (out of this world)...enchiladas (who knew in a sushi restaurant?). You have to try the beef on weck roll...you've never had... More

Food was great with an extensive menu. Selections for children were good & portions large. This is a BYOB. Service & cleanliness excellent. Casual atmosphere. Recommend early dining to avoid crowd particularly weekends.

Traditional and very creative rolls and sashimi. I recommend the bento box or the volcano bowl. Get here early or make reservations for lunch. It fills up quickly.

Atmosphere is modern and appealing. I sat at the bar and enjoyed the outgoing bar staff. Prompt - fun and professional. Nice selection of drinks for everyone. The appetizers will not disappoint! I went with the tuna rolls of which were excellent. Price was in line with other high end Sea-cuine establishments in the immediate NY area. I'll be back-hope... More

We don't get to Buffalo often enough, but when we do we plan appointments and shopping around the SeaBars hours. We always start with edamame and include their beef on 'weck rolls as part of our meal, but the rest of our order depends on the time of day and how hungry we are! The staff is WONDERFUL! The atmosphere... More

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!!!
