Sea Rocket closed its doors on December 8, 2013.
My husband and I recently took advantage of a buy one get one free coupon for a dinner at Sea Rocket Bistro in North Park. When we walked in the door, the ambiance seemed perfect for a Saturday night bite – dimly lit, good energy emitting from the crowd, and a cool little corner bar that looked as if you could order any drink your heart desired. There was a table ready for us when we arrived, which was wonderful considering we had no reservations. A pale straight-faced waiter greeted us with a bottle of water with a sliced cucumber inside – which was delicious. Unfortunately, that’s the only thing that was delicious about the bistro – the water. Despite the wonderful ambiance, the food was horrible to say the least. My husband had the scallops, which tasted like they had been frozen and then left in the refrigerator for days on end to thaw, and I had the Beet Tart with Goat Cheese, which had only a few morsels of goat cheese on it and the rest was all beets – hard flavorless beets. It was difficult to get even two bites down! My husband and I enjoy good food and there really isn’t anything we don’t like to eat. Needless to say, we left the Sea Rocket Bistro green as the dead and with our bellies still empty since we couldn’t get our dinners down…yet we were too nauseas to contemplate eating anything else. Boo to the Bistro. Sorry guys, the food was disgusting.
