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

Great to eat at a place with FRESH fish for sushi. The wait staff and chef's were very helpful in finding item that are gluten/soy free. It was yummy! Definitely would eat here again.

I go here because my wife "demands it". It is actually very good. I wish they would have more substantial entrees if you are not keen on sushi. Still one of our favorites Park across the street in Church lot. If you attend services on Sunday, I am told you get 33% off coupon on food. Great service.

I've been to the Sea Bar twice - once with my daughter who is a sushi fan and once with my husband who is not. Both visits the food was wonderful, the service was great and the atmosphere was cool.

Love this place, especially in the summer when the big windows let in lots of light. The sushi is great, really inventive. Some more imported Japanese beer would be welcome but that's being picky.

I had the chirashi sushi (a standard by which I assess many sushi places), and my wife had the loco moco (something unique to sea bar). We were both very satisfied with the food. It didn't wow us, it didn't disappoint us, it simply made us very happy. I was initially worried that my chirashi looked small, but it was... More

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.
