I had arrived at Seal Beach around 5 pm with no set plans. I was able to look up and make a reservation for one within the hour on open table. I easily Ubered there from my hotel and arrived early and was seated promptly...More

If you make reservations, make sure you ask for a dining table upstairs. There are tables on both floors, but the lower level is also the bar. Very loud. Upstairs is not quiet, but it wasn’t bad. Food was very good, the drinks are expensive....More

Upstairs is more fine dining, downstairs is more casual. Our favorite spot is at a window table in the bar & people watch!

The best seafood. Try the cioppino. Great atmosphere for a casual dinner or drop in to the bar for a drink. All entrees carefully prepared and served. A favorite in Seal Beach.

This is a great restaurant in Seal Beach! High quality food and great service. I would have given a 5/5, but the seating area on the second floor could use some updating. If you can, sit on the main floor, the ambiance is much better.

We were in the area and came across this establishment. Very clean and excellent service. They served hot sliced sourdough bread before the meal. Everything was delicious. Why the mediocre rating? Was very pricey and the portions were so small. We ordered the spicy mussels...More

I have not found a good hotel right in downtown Seal Beach. I generally stay at the Hilton Hampton Inn on Seal Beach Blvd or the Best Western in Sunset Beach. In either case you would need to drive. Try to get to Main St... More

I always park on Main St, but get there around 4.30-5p. It is 2 hr parking but that limit ends at 6p. If not on Main, try Central Ave.

It's a high end place to dine. So if you have a child maybe who can sit without crying through a meal then yes. It's darker inside for atmosphere for romantic dining and i see business groups.
