We had a great time here. The food is excellent and the Pre Fix dinners are very affordable. We sat at the window and while watching the skaters, we witnessed a marriage proposal that was really cool. The waiters are fantastic and very personable and the food is to die for. Totally enjoyed the experience.

I have eaten here before but not when the skating rink was open as it is often difficult to get reservations on short notice. So for a surprise birthday dinner and show for my husband, I booked it well in advance. Both the food and the service were superb and it was great fun watching the skaters on a cold... More

Superb service, attentive wait staff, and fabulous food. The view is wonderful at the Holidays, if at the glass you have views of the ice skaters on the rink and the Christmas tree on the plaza

I gave this restaurant a one star review previously as the customer service beforehand was not good. However I wish to do a U-turn and strongly recommend this wonderful place. We booked for our wedding lunch but due to traffic and the city clerks office being packed out we were 90 mins late for our reservation, amazingly the sea grill... More

always a pleasure to dine here and escape the madness upstairs by the tree. Very crowded on christmas eve and pricey but the food was very good although the service seemed to be a bit rushed..waiters taking drink glasses away before empty and removing plates without asking if diners were done. They tried to stick us in the back even... More

We dined at The Sea Grill for Christmas Day lunch, this restaurant being chosen for its view of the ice skating rink and tree at the Rockefeller Centre. The view is lovely, especially for the festive season. We were not totally pleased by the experience. The first course was quite lovely, but main was very average. Two of our party... More

Had dinner at The Sea Grill on December 23. The food here is very good, but not great. However, you don't go to there for the food. You go for the experience. The view is incredible, especially during the Holidays, and you can't beat the location. The service was absolutely fine. We were not rushed. Upon leaving the restaurant, we... More

This was a recommendation of a friend and I went with one to visit this restaurant.I had sole and it was okay. My friend had the pasta with squid ink and lobster which was okay as well. The biggest part of the problem was the wait and the value of the food. Our reservation was at noon and we left... More

We visited the Sea Grill for our Christmas dinner. Getting to the Sea Grill was close to impossible due to people wanting to take pictures of the Christmas tree and the ice skating rink, definitely bank on lots of time if you plan to do this next year. Also the crowds were not conducive to having kids or prams with... More

There's no denying, that the food here was incredibly nice. We had the yummy scallop ravioli with rather tasteless truffles on top, but the dish itself was good. We had a perfect cut of fillet Mignon, cooked to perfection. For dessert we had a lovely chocolate caramel mousse. Truly sublime and presented beautifully. The waiters, ours in particular was charming.... 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.
