Description: Offering seasonally focused, contemporary American seafood, where only the finest and freshest seafood is highlighted. Guests will be enchanted by the superb selection of raw bar favorites and delicious appetizers which include East & West Coast Oysters, Chilled Lobster, and expertly seasoned Yellowfin Tuna Tartare. Entree selections are sure to delight, with succulent Alaskan King Crab Legs, elegant Herb Basted Black Bass and the menu wouldn't be complete without the addition of SFG's Surf & Turf - tender filet mignon and buttery steamed lobster. The sleek interior, with tile floors, shimmering blue lighting, and mirrored accents give the space a modern edge while the Main Dining Room takes cues from a classic steakhouse with dark wood floors, wainscoting, and a roaring marble fireplace. SFG boasts not one but two private dining options for more intimate events. The Sea Fire Grill lends the perfect balance to refined cuisine, chic decor, and impeccable service.

So glad we found this place after mistakenly going into The Sea Grill (Rockefeller)
Lovely atmosphere - very busy on a Sunday evening - seemingly not with tourists either. Polite, knowledgable & attentive service
The menu was fabulous - though not being so hungry I had scallops then a little lobster.
One of my favourite meals this trip

So don’t get the two mixed up!!!

Located in the heart of hidden gems of food land, NYC.....this place has amazing seafood. I am allergic to shell fish, so I always worry about cross contamination issues...this place is just top notch, and way too attentive to detail to allow that to happen. Had the salmon this past time, and it did not fail. Food is remarkable and service was second to none. Fantastic vibe throughout. Dress business casual and thre were no kids ...taKe clients or someone special

The conceirge at the Lexington recomended this restaurant highly for dinner. The atmosphere has a nice vibe to it, busy but not over the top noisy. The swordfish was outstanding. Moist and well seasoned. What was surprising was the service, or lack thereof. Our set up included a bread plate, but we were never brought any bread. Our wine and water were brought promptly. Dinner did not take too long. But we never saw anyone again. Water was not filled, we were never offered a second glass of wine. Only once our plates were empty and we were finished for some time did someone come by and ask about coffee and dessert. To which we just took the check and left. When you pay these kind of prices, you are looking for a pleasant experience with some attention paid to you during the meal. So expect good food, but expect little in the way that tells you that you are appreciated.

Thanks for taking the time to rate us and please know that we appreciate your patronage. We are very glad that you enjoyed the food, especially the swordfish, however we are quite disappointed to hear that you had a 3-star experience and that the service was lackluster. We pride ourselves on top notch cuisine AND hospitality and what you experienced is absolutely not the standards that we hold ourselves to. We will absolutely be taking your notes to our weekly manager meeting as well as ensuring management speaks with the server who was given your table. We are a family-owned business and always want our guests to feel as though they are family, while enjoying our wonderful cuisine. Our sincere apologies about this and know we do not take your notes lightly. It is with your feedback that we are able to do better and we will certainly put efforts in to stop this from happening again. We do hope on your next visit to NYC you will give us another chance, to be wowed the way you should have on your first experience. Thank you again for your feedback and we hope you have a wonderful day.

My wife and I fell in love with the Sea Fire Grill bar and its servers, bartender Ben and table server Heidi as well as the manager Alex Begolli. We adopted the bar as our local and went every afternoon and after dinner. The care and attention we received is above any we've experienced in several years and we travel often. Hats off to Ben, Heidi and Alex.

Coming from Fort Lauderdale to New York is a whole different ballgame, the service, the staff and especially the food is definitely a five-star restaurant
