Went on a Wednesday evening as was delighted to hear live saxophone music. Ordered a couple of cocktails one of which was aptly called "the Tequila Drink" and they were very well made and nice sized. As an appetizer, I ordered the 1/2 lb King Crab claws and was pleasantly surprised to see that they were already cracked and sliced in half to make them easy to eat without using a lobster bib or bloodying my hands. This was seriously excellent since it was my Birthday and I just hate anything bloody other than a bloody Mary. My entree was Atlantic Monkfish over cheesy grits w/slivers of jalapeño. Honestly these were the BEST grits this side of S Carolina! They were out of this world. We shared the red velvet beignets for dessert and they were amazing and totally worth the calories. Our waiter, Mark was attentive and excellent. My only small critique of the restaurant would be that it could be a little prettier with nicer tables and/or table cloths since it is an upscale expensive restaurant. Still, all in all, it's clearly one of the best restaurants on Las Olas.

Sea is renovating its outdoor patio, but inside is as good as ever. The oyster happy hour ($1.5 per) is a good deal for nicely shucked and beautifully presented bivalves. The Gouda Polenta is to die for. Service at the bar was pleasant and efficient.August 5 is Oyster Day - $45 for all the oysters that you can eat!

Wonderful meal and even more wonderful server. Marc Victor was exceptional with recommendations and timing. The food was delicious and the atmosphere light and modern. I would definitely come again. 1.50 oysters for happy hour were a win too!

Ive been twice and both times gotten delicious enjoyable meals, sat outside and enjoyed the ambiance of the Boulevard. It is very expensive. I would only go if we had company from out of town or some other special occasion.
