I had the pleasure to dine at The Seafire Grill om East 48th Street in Manhattan on a cold winter night . My husband and I were meeting another couple and chose this midtown restaurant for its prime location. Immediately upon arrival the hostess smiled and promptly showed us to our table. We had the pleasure to sit very close to a wonderful and romantic fireplace illuminating this lovely space.
The waiter promptly greeted us and went over drink specials and recommendations. I was amazed how many people are working at The Seafire Grill and how they all are attentive and busy but make sure you are truly pleased and happy from start to finish.
We began our delightful meal with appetizers. We shared colossal shrimp, calamari, tuna tartar, Madagascar garlic prawns
and jumbo lump crab cakes. We all agreed that the start of our dinner was quite tasty with the freshest seafood and wonderful presentation.
Since this is a dining venue specializing in seafood we took full advantage at the start of our meal. I had to then try the whole Maine lobster stuffed with crab meat. The waiter opened the lobster for me so that I did not have to fuss. Quite a nice touch. I adored the meal and had plenty left. My husband ordered the surf and turf with filet migon and lobster tail. The steak melted in his mouth with a perfectly cooked and succulent lobster tail. My friend tried the organic Scottish salmon with fresh lentils and her husband chose the rib eye steak. Both reported that the meals were outstanding. We also tried an order of lobster mac and cheese for the table as well as baby kale with fingerling potatoes and goat cheese. I have to report that the lobster mac and cheese was so good that we fought for the last bite. The vegetable combo was good as well.
I did not think we had too much room for dessert but my husband and I managed to share the molten chocolate cake with ice cream. This was a perfect ending to a perfect meal!
are all dry aged and the restaurant is owed by the same people who own Benjamin Steakhouse.I chose the seafood as this is my favorite but feel free to order any meats as the preparation and taste is outstanding as told by the others in my party.
The space is sleek and modern with a romantic feel at the same time. The lighting is lovely and really sets the mood. I can’t finish this review without saying how precise and top notch the staff is. If you want to try an amazing restaurant in New York City with great food and high end service for any occasion this is the one! I can’t wait to return.
