“Tasty seafood and paella”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

Everything was very good. Calamari was tender and perfectly breaded and fried. Generous portion of paella, which was chock full of salmon, shrimp, sausage, chicken, scallops, and more. Grilled seafood Brochette was also excellent (though more accurately described as a kabob).

“Very Pleasant!”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

I went here on a sunday for lunch, the restaurant has a view to die for!! and the decor is very pretty... service was great and fast and food was excellent!!
They have a very good looking menu... lots of good options... the cream brulee was probably the best i have ever had!!! yummy!! and the peppermint ice cream was surprisingly good!!! i would love to go back again soon... it is a little expensive but it is a fancy restaurant so you get what you are paying for! loved it!!

“EXPENSIVE”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

Our party consisted of 2 adults and 2 children. Although the food was delicious, everything was ala carte. After you order the entree, starch and vegetable, you have quite an expensive meal. If you also order appetizers, desserts and drinks, you better take out a loan. What I couldn't understand is if you are a seafood restaurant, why isn't there one or two seafood dishes on the children's menu??? A nice flounder and/or shrimp meal for kids would have been great. We had to order adult meals for both of them because they couldn't agree on the same seafood entree to share. Safe to say we will not be dining at Sea Watch again.

“Pretty nice atmosphere but really dirty”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

I'm actually surprised they passed health code requirements. It smells like the grease built up in the building over the years and bugs and rats received an invite to dinner. I really didn't get a good feeling about this place.
