Sea Level NC
- Open Now
Sea level is one of the best restaurants in uptown Charlotte. Pioneering fresh ingredients and great cooking in a non franchised or corporate entity. Absolutely love the place. My waiter I think his name was Chris was on point. Didn't have to wait for my food long or for dishes to be cleared after finishing a course. Highly recommend the short rib, duck taco and the raw oysters. The flour less brownie was nice but could do with something to cut the richness. Definitely worth a visit
Luxurious coastal design. Excellent 4-5 star food. I had the Red Drum which was amazing! All of their seafood is freshly caught. They do not have a freezer. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for very good seafood and/or oysters.
OH MY GOODNESS! If you love seafood and haven't gone here, you NEED to go!!! My husband and I took a trip up the coast of Maine, and eating at Sea Level last week during Queen's Feast took us down memory lane. The raw oysters were super fresh. I wanted so much more! The clam chowder was also excellent! My husband and I tried to split the dishes 50/50 and it was difficult not to eat all of those dishes myself. Grilled Farm Raised Salmon was amazing. I'll say this - it's hard to get me to like a salmon dish these days, I think I ate too much of it the last few years not having access to good seafood and various types of fish. But wow, it was seasoned perfectly and paired nicely with the gold rice and salsa. Bravo! My husband had the Todays Carolina Fresh Catch. I thought it was a bit bland (forgot which fish was served), the fish tasted very fresh though. My husband on the other hand wasn't as big of a fan of my dish but ate his super quickly. Both amazing dishes! Of the desserts, we preferred Layered Chocolate Mousse Cake over Cinnamon Sugar Eclair but they were both great. I'd just say that the chocolate mousse cake is beyond fantastic though and that's why we preferred it. Overall, amazing experience. Great atmosphere, magnificent food, amazing drinks, helpful and wonderful staff... We will be back for sure. This is added onto one of our most favorite Charlotte restaurants!!!
1st time here... Loved it. Fresh ground horseradish too. Highly recommend! Ask for server Chris Campbell.
Excellent oysters, poor customer service. They do not honor reservations very well, nor do they have accommodating seating arrangements. I chose this restaurant for my birthday outing (party of two), and there was very little attention paid to us the entire visit. Also, we asked to switch tables as to not be placed beside the back door, and the hostess declined this request, stating "we do not have a booth available." Then I watched the booth nearby get cleaned off, sit empty, and 20 minutes later a party of two were sat in the booth. Expect to share your private table space and conversations with your neighbors. On the upside - I loved the oysters.
