This restaurant had excellent food, service, atmosphere and a wide bar selection. The shusi was of the highest quality and the food was very well presented and plentiful. This restaurant is a great choice if you are staying in the Buffalo's downtown area.

My son, my daughter and a dear friend were visiting. Naturally, I wanted to take them to our favorite restaurant in Buffalo. We had a gloriously nice dinner. Everyone was very impressed from the beautifully made cocktails to the sushi. You just can't go wrong here. My daughter had the Ramen noodles. Super. The scallop dish was ordered by two... More

I was there for a late lunch and had the miso soup and some Nigiris. The Ikura and the Maguro was amazing, the rest was more average. It was very good over all and I will come again!

My wife and I visited Sea Bar on a Saturday night with reservations and we were both very pleased and definitely would return. The service was good and the food was great! I highly recommend trying the "beef on weck" sushi. This is a pretty amazing tasting sushi roll paying tribute to the classic Buffalo beef on weck sandwich. We... More

Enjoyed a nice date night with my wife here on a Friday night. Sushi was great, not sure it's the best ever like some other reviewers claim, but it was very good. Very fresh. Fish Taco was amazing! The restaurant itself was so-so, I was not impressed at all with the actual restaurant or the unisex bathroom. Had a great... More

My favorite meal here is a 3 to 6 oysters followed by sashimi, (usually the 5 fishes 5 flavors ). The cocktail specials at Seabar are also very very good. During our last visit their special was seafood tacos, wonderful. Make reservations several days ahead as it is very crowded, especially when touring Broadway musicals are at Shea's .

Sushi here was good (not great) and there was a large selection, with some innovative selections. Service was excellent, but in terms of entrees, there was not much to choose from, and no one in our party could say much positive. It is also very loud, as the bar gets crowded, even on weeknights. Finally, it was very pricey. That... More

We started our dinner with two Sushi Rolls - the Beef on Weck and Miso Carmel Crab Rolls. The Beef on Weck is a take on the Beef on Kimmelweck roll that you can only find in Buffalo. The rolls invokes all of the same flavors with Roast Beef wrapped around the sushi rice with caraway seeds and salt sprinkled... More
