In a 1/30/2014 N&O article, this restaurant was listed as one of the best restaurants in the Triangle. I don't know what the guy who write that article was thinking. We had meh comfort food. There's no reason to return.

I rated the burger joint across the street from 18 Seaboard "Very good" - for a burger joint, so I guess to be fair across the rating platform I also have to rate 18S "Very good". Although if you compare it to other restaurants who put themselves in the upper middle class of dinning in Raleigh, 18S is just average.... More

Met friends for lunch and the special was ordered by two who gave rave reviews (salmon dish). All the food was good and portions were average. Dessert of goat-cheese cheesecake was shared and was tasty. Like most lunch restaurants, it was crowded and noisy.

Super delicious lunch last week. The special was a salmon cake on a salad. It was delicious! Not sure how often they have the special but it is worth going back just to check! Yum!!

This is always my top pick for date night. They have consistently fantastic food. I've been many times and never had anything less than an excellent experience. The food is amazing. The only thing I would improve is the main dining room is a bit too open for me. Service is always wonderful and I always leave wanting to come... More

Normally a favorite restaurant of ours, we decided to go for Brunch today for a family members birthday. We had a large group so I made a reservation in advance and told them about our event. The restaurant opens at 11:30AM and our reservation was for 11:30. We arrived as soon as the restaurant opened. Unfortunately, my group was much... More

18 Seaboard served me and incredibly delicious dinner. I highly recommend their seafood, and seriously; save room for dessert. I had the goat cheese cheesecake on chocolate and holy crap… it was the surprise of the evening. So good. I will be back.

Thank PapaElf00
