I had been there a few times. Love the crunchy seafood salad and the jade dumplings as well as other dumplings they offer. Thai Iced Tea is great as well. One thing to note, it get very loud after 5. If you enjoy a more...quieter dinning, come before 4. I would give this place 3+ or 4- Also, they bring out food pretty quickly.More

We thought we had walked into a sports bar at first; having to fight our way through the crowd watching the Mets game on the ENORMOUS TV at the door had us thinking we were in the wrong place. We weren't, of course. The incredible...decor, and the tables dotted around the place, confirmed that we were indeed in the trendy WillyB restaurant we'd read and heard so much about. That's where this place started - and ended - resembling anything close to a functioning restaurant. Almost exactly as our group was seated, the DJ cranked up the techno, EDM, and trance music to a level so loud that having a conversation was not an option. This prompted jokes – at first – amongst our group that we’d “gone to a rave for a bite to eat”. The joke got old fast. When our server eventually returned, we were unable to order, because the place was so dark that none of us were able to read the menu. Once we had all used the torch app on our phones we were able to order. No sooner had our starters been put down in front of us, then the waitress arrived with everyone’s main courses and proceeded to put them down on the table, too. What an absolutely preposterous and mismanaged set-up! The main courses were – of course – sent back to the kitchen until we had finished our starters. Why anyone would ever want 2 courses at once is beyond me. When we were ready for our main courses, they were brought out to us without so much as a smile, and 2 had to be sent back to the kitchen because they were ice cold. When they returned, one was the wrong order entirely. At this point, the meal was ruined, and we left…as soon as we were able to manoeuvre ourselves out through an almost pitch black restaurant, back through the sports crowd and all the while to a soundtrack straight out of Tron. This place is trying to be too many things all at once, without actually succeeding at any of them! What a disaster.More

We were recommended this restaurant by a tour guide off the open top buses in NYC, We were very glad we followed her advice. This place was only a block up from where we were staying which was very handy. The restaurant itself is stunning...inside, a large water feature surrounded by very nicely set out tables. The menu has a great selection of dishes all very reasonably priced. We got a selection of Dim Sum style dumplings and stuffed crab balls, both of which were delicious, we then had a very rich beef curry and a pork basil and pineapple Thai red curry, we had these with Jasmine and coconut rice, all of these were delicious. The service was very good here, very quick and polite. The restaurant is situated in the trendy suburb of Williamsburg, plenty of great bars around here for a good night out.More

The set up is awesome, and this place is massive. The DJ is playing tunes and the atmosphere is fun. The food is really good and this is a great date place or place to go with a large group of friends!

We sat near the indoor water lighted pond and were delivered excellent service. We started with crab rangoon appetizers and a curry potato empanadas. Both very tasty! The passion-fruit mojito was a little too sweet, not as refreshing as a the original can be. Pork...belly too salty and too firm, reminded me of jerky. Really enjoyed the shrimp vermicelli dish. Total bill under 75$ with tip. Although we were not excited about the dish we chose, would still recommend and return.More

I visited this restaurant in the beginning of the month to celebrate a birthday. My friends birthday was in the middle of the week and we really didn't feel like going to the city to celebrate. Although it was a Tuesday this place had a...steady flow of people, but it never felt crowded. Our waiter was very attentive and the food came quickly. The drinks were pretty strong and with that said I would recommend the leeche martini. The food was great, but the portions were a little large. So it was hard to finish my plate after nibbling on appetizers. Overall we had a great time on a Tuesday night.More

Just dined at Sea this past Saturday while visiting New York. It really surpassed my expectations. I loved the décor and the food was awesome. There was a lot to choose from and no one at the table was disappointed.

We have been going here for years, but had not been in almost 4 years. It was just like we remembered it though the area has experienced one heck of a growth spurt over the last 10 years! We ordered all of the appetizers and...feasted. The sauces are spectacular and the food is always prepared to the highest quality. Desserts were a pleasant surprise. SEA will not disappoint. Glad we got reacquainted with an old friend-SEAMore
