The food was delicious. However the services was slow and overall pretty poor. They have a deal for parties of different size we did the party of 10 for $225.00, were you pick 6 different app, 9 Maki rolls and 8 specialty rolls. However it was not explained that if you order an appetizer listed such as Goyza, it is one order (4 dumplings) we assumed since this deal was advertised for a party of 10 you would get enough to feed the whole table at least one. We waited about 20 min between first few plates then everything came out at once like rapid fire. Like I said though the food was good maybe with a smaller group it would be better. As well as this place is BYOB they didn't charge us a corking fee so Idk if they have one.

First time at Seadog. Food is great but took some time for food to come out but it was a busy Saturday night so not surprised it took a bit. Regardless service was good. I’m all about BYOB, no corkage fee. I’d come come back.

What a great little neighborhood gem! We were looking for a vegan friendly place for my colleague and opted to try this out. The sever was able to easily steer us to vegan options. Overall service was attentive but not intrusive and the food was excellent and beautifully plated. I forgot to take pics!Very glad we braved the snow to check it out.

It was a quite evening here due to the weather. The service and ambiance was excellent. They have a creative menu with sushi options that you don’t see every day. This place is also BOYB so it was nice to being a bottle of wine that we love from home and enjoy it with great food. We really enjoyed our evening here and will be back again.

Went here on a date with my boyfriend, we loved everything we tried. They had different options from other sushi spots we’ve been to. Our food took some time to come out but it was so good, worth the wait. They were also playing some really cool house music, awesome vibe here. Would definitely recommend! Also BYOB with a liquor store right across the street! Win, win

We had a table in their back room by a defunct staircase that was full off building equipment & office supplies. They crammed tables in this little room so you could barely slide your chair out or walk through the room to go to the bathroom. It was so loud with all the people that you couldn’t hear the person next to you speak and the service and food was just plain bad. Would never go back and wouldn’t recommend this place to others.

Seadog handled our large party with ease. Our food came out at the same time, and the server even split up our checks without having to ask. Would definitely recommend!

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Seadog! Brought along several bottles of wine for a holiday meetup with some friends and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the expansive menu. Enjoyed some amazing appetizers (steak wrapped asparagus, tempura, miso soup, salad) and some inventive sushi rolls and maki. Service was prompt and courteous, ambiance was good, and food was fantastic. Can't wait to return!!!

First time here and we absolutely loved it! Sat in a fun raised alcove near the window, service was excellent, and the sushi was delicious! A few plates I wouldn’t order again, like the lava salmon roll (too much crunch and not enough fish for me personally) or the pan fried scallops (great flavor but I like mine a little more on the raw side), though I had THE BEST spicy salmon of my life! Not that mushy, minced salmon you find everywhere else; they used large pieces of fresh salmon with scallions and a spicy mayo that was perfect. Can’t wait to go back. Also, BYOB! :)

Service was very poor. No one came to our table after we were seated for at least 15 minutes. Then when I asked the server about the most popular items on the menu she just said “look at the menu you pick whatever you want”
The quality of the sushi was fair at best. You can tell it’s previously frozen. The service was not consistent at all. I had to wave down the staff multiple times. It was overall a very frustrating experience. Also, I noticed their advertisement of Michelin rating posted all over the front entrance. It is quite misleading. Do they even have a Michelin rating?
I’ll never go back or recommend this restaurant.

The food was fantastic, though it came out strangely staggered, with our final dish coming after we'd already finished everything else. We were seated at a table just 5 or so feet from the front door so it got very cold and drafty as people entered and exited. But it was an overally very enjoyable time!

Good solid food. Very fresh and portion size was perfect. Since the chefs make the rolls as they are ordered, the food is fresh and beautifully plated. It’s a BYOB restaurant and they are very accomodating- they will even bring you an ice bucket if needed!

The place was great. I don’t think i ordered well. Had a few rolls and ordered one with scallops. It was cold, unexpected and kind of offputting for scallops. This was my fault as it didn’t come warm and would recommend the restaurant none the less.

There was a small child that was jumping off the stairs repeatedly even when the staff told him to stop. Then he played on the floor and was disrupted to the guests. The staff tried to get him to stop but never went up to the mother. It was entertaining but annoying. He even went outside and came back in the restaurant. What a terrible mother.

Great sushi. BYOB is always nice. Friendly staff.

Not wowed. Better sushi and better service elsewhere. As we walked up to the table, the girls cleaning the tables moved two water glasses from a dirty table to ours and continued cleaning. I asked them if they were clean and they insisted that they were just set down. But why on a dirty table? I asked for new ones, my boyfriend didn’t care and drank out of them anyways. Lol.
