My husband and I made reservations for our Christmas lunch at the Sea Grill and we were prepared to have a meal rushed since it was Christmas Day and everywhere in the city was really busy. We were prompted seated and the service was beyond our expectations. The servers were excellent, the meal was not rushed and the quality was... More

We had the best experience with a view of the skating rink at the Rockefeller center. Food was great, staff was pleasant, and our server went out of his way to get my 4 year old hot chocolate even though their restaurant didn't have it on the menu. Simply amazing!

I loved the food that was served here and the wait staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The decor was beautiful and well put together. One thing that made the place stand out for me was the different types of foods they had as well as the wine menu.

Food was great and when paired with skating at Rockefeller center, it was reasonable. You can watch the ice skaters outside of the window while dining...you may even see a proposal! I had an amazing filet and the cheesecake was great too!

Great place to eat and be entertained by the ice skaters at the rink at Rockefeller center. Great menu and great staff. A little light on the wine selection, but definitely fine dining.

The serving of the cold mixed sea food was plentiful and very fresh. My husband ordered the sushi sashimi platter and was also raving about the freshness and taste. Presentation was also perfect . Price is reasonable for what we got.

The Sea Grill is perfect for a special occasion, Valentine's Day, birthdays or any tourists visiting and wanting to experience a special aspect of the city. The menu is pretty steep, but I guess you're paying more for the view than anything. However, the staff is extremely friendly and courteous and that is what this place so special. The cod... More

As native New Yorkers, we rarely dine at restaurants in tourists' 'hot' spots....(yes, how 'snobby' is that ? : -] ) so we were caught by surprise at how good The Sea Grill was! Came for Restaurant Week menu, but will definitely return for their regular menu! Our server, Luis was friendly, efficient (albeit on a rather busy night), and... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
