A friend had recommended this restaurant and we now cannot recommend it more highly. We were slightly nervous visiting as we had our 13 years old son with us, who is a fussy eater. We need not have been concerned! Scallops and steak tartare highly recommended for appetisers, sea bass, bass and halibut (served plain for teen) were sublime. Great... More

The Dover Sole special was perfect, filleted tableside so as to stay fresh and hot. East Coast oysters outstanding. Other mains and sides were a step up in flavors from the usual fare at high-end establishments. Service was impeccable, from the Maitre D to coat check to wait and bus staff. Great job on cocktails and corkage. Loved the ambiance... More

The staff were wonderful. We had a dinner but 22 was entirely to big for the private dining room. Too noisy and I think the staff were understaffed to handle us. It was a prix fix menu, food was perfect but took forever to be served. Would love to go back for a regular dinner.

We went as a couple on a weeknight and it was fairly crowded and loud. We found a table at the bar and ordered appetizers which were delicious. I highly recommend the octopus and the lobster salad. Being a New York City restaurant means this place is expensive but no more so than any other nice restaurants in New York... More

A smart restaurant with wonderful food and wine menus. I had superb scallops and a Red Snapper to die for. Excellent service, lovely ambience, thoroughly recommended.

We only had the shrimp salad and the grilled chicken salad but never felt rushed and our waiter gave us great service, offering us coffee, which we had. It is definitely a seafood place but you can get good non-fish entrees. You never escape the typical noise of these small NYC dining places but we had a great table for... More

Had dinner with a friend there last night. The table arrangements are a bit crowded, but it is intimate enough to have a conversation with having to raise your voice. The seafood is amazingly good. I recommend the Branzino!

We worked our way through a rain storm to get to Sea Fire, and it was well worth the effort. We enjoyed the ambiance, great food, and very attentive staff. Nice wine list, too. The east coast oysters were great, lobster bisque was even better, and the halibut won the top prize, although my date would argue that her sea... More

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.

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.
