After all these years, 18 Seaboard is still my favorite Triangle restaurant. The service, food, and prices combine for e truly fine dining experience. This visit we were a party of 4. We chose not to order apps and went right to the main courses. I had swordfish with a smoked tomato vinaigrette. It was perfectly cooked and the sauce... More

We visited last night based on a friends recommendation. I ordered one of the chef entrees, the big rock wahoo. The risotto was very good but the wahoo was on the dry end. Not sure if it's the fish it's self, seeing as how this is the first time I have had wahoo, or if it was just a little... More

Beginning to end, just a great experience. Mel provided superior service for our birthday dinner. Prompt drink orders and supplied the dinner specials to choose. The food was delicious for all 5 selections: salmon, swordfish, filet, ribeye and sea bass. The tarragon champagne sauce is addictive and the Chef sent special treat appetizers to go with a delicious she-crab soup.... More

We love 18 Seaboard & have been avid fans for many years! The manager & his staff ensure you have a wonderful, gourmet meal in a pleasant atmosphere. It's not unusual to see Jason, the manager, at your table during your meal. They are also a very "giving" business that contributes to various charities throughout the year, giving back to... More

Lights too bright, sterile atmosphere, loud. Not great service, we're ignored for quite awhile both. OK food. Haven't been back.

Meal was excellent. Service was very good. We never waited for anything and never rushed. Waitress Katie was very attentive and helpful. We will be back thanks to Chef Jason and his staff. Thanks Jason for a very nice experience.

Excellent restaurant with wonderful food and service. We had a difficult person in our party and the wait staff remained polite and professional during our dinner. Would go again in a minute.

Perhaps it was that there was a large party of 15+ people at one table, but this particular night we experienced very slow service and indifference from our server and the manager. It took longer than it should have for the waitress to take our order so we asked the manager what the issue was, and he seemed annoyed and... More

Came with a group of 5 Christmas Eve. Service was very friendly and attentive. We all enjoyed our food and the desserts. Great bar selection. If you like seafood you will enjoy. We'll be back.

We love to eat here every chance we get. We took friends from out of town and they felling love with the entire experience. The only downside to this visit was we had to sit in the bar which was noisy. We had steak, swordfish, beef brisket and grilled chicken which covered just about every type food represented on the...
