I choose the title of the review after the most representative dish of this restaurant. They have four types of oysters , and we felt that Canadian ones are more appropriate for our taste. Tuna and Salmon sushi was in line with our expectations , but the Yellow fist tail was to small for an appetizer. Finally the pudding ,... More

I have visited The Sea Grill twice; usually I eat at the bar; great professional barman (Benny?). The food has always been not less than great! I will go there next time in NYC

It's super fresh and beautifully prepared with Japanese overtones Suggest sushi starter and anything else from the menu. I usually get the wonderful staff to suggest what's best Never had anything I did not absolutely love. Go and enjoy. I almost forgot the atmosphere. Great 12 months - sit outside if weather permits

This restaurant is situated in the Rockerfeller. We sat outside in the plaza and had sharing plates. The service is terrible, the younger service staff are at best disinterested and at worse rude. The food is average. The sound of the water is loud but add into that the music and it is deafening. Would not return.

Nice Place, romantic , charming, good and fresh food, maybe a bit too elaborated for the italian taste, that prefers simple dressing and few but high Quality ingredients, anyhow good and welldone. Overpriced as every good restaurant in ny.

We enjoyed our seafood meal a great deal! We had Bluepoint oysters, salads, sushi, chowder, salmon sliders, and their famous crab cakes! Service was attentive and friendly!

The food and service were as excellent and outstanding as the iconic location of this NY dinning institution. A lovely meal on a Saturday night with the temperature at 90 Inside the air conditioned space looking at the ice skating ring without the ice. The size of the whole fish surpassed my expectation and the preparation was top notch. The... More

Hidden under Rockefeller Center with a view of ice skating in the winter, this sea food restaurant delivers well prepared and delicious food. It is not cheap, but the service is responsive and the experience a very pleasant one.

Stopped by here for a late night snack and drink after a show and were seated and handed dinner menus. Options were limited for small plates and the special that was on the board for burger, fries, and a beer was only offered in the bar. Therefore, we were at the mercy of very pricey food. The atmosphere was nice... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
