So we decided upon a seafood outing whilst in NYC - quick look on tripadvisor and off we headed with the help of Apple Maps (not always accurate in big cities but good enough?)
TSG is accessed via a rather dirty looking lift
We were met with a glance up & down to be told they didn’t have a reservation for us - at this point worth mentioning it was was by no means busy. Being made to feel awkward I tried to find the confirmation to be told we’d got the wrong place (seriously they must get this ALL the time!) & this was the Sea Grill NOT Sea Fire Grill
After a slight awkward exchange between my partner & I we were told they could try find us a table

Badly handled - if they’d have just seated us without a fuss we’d have been none the wiser and they’d have been $400 up
Having said that a couple minutes and we were sat in the Sea Fire Grill - far better atmosphere & friendlier staff
TSG won’t be on our list for next visit! Shame as the menu looked pretty decent

(And to note TSFG said they get people getting the two mixed up all the time!!)

The Sea Grill combines a lovely location, excellent service and wonderful food. We were given a table by the window, looking out on the ice skating rink at Rockefeller Plaza. Our waiter was very attentive without being overbearing. When we asked, he offered great suggestions. (Try the margarita. It has a touch of jalapeno in it.) We enjoyed the prix fixe menu, with sushi, pink snapper and key lime pie -- all wonderful. I can highly recommend the Sea Grill for a lovely dining experience.

I attended “The Prisoner Wine Dinner” event at the restaurant on March 27, and it was very well organized and executed. Not only were we able to try the new, not yet released to the public, wines, but they perfectly complimented all the dishes prepared for this event. Everything from the dish presentation to the quality and flavor was top notch. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the food, and his service was outstanding.
This looks like a restaurant that I may be visiting more in the future.

Always a great place to celebrate Easter with the family. We have been dining at the Sea Grill for many years and have never been disappointed. The food, service and atmosphere are excellent. I had the whole bronzino and it was great. Started with the crab cake, which is one of their signature dishes...crab not fillers. Thanks, Costa, for taking such good care of us. See you again.....
