Last night, I decided to dine at SeaBass Kitchen. SeaBass Kitchen is a new restaurant located on Roswell Road in Sandy Springs, Georgia. You might be familiar with the location if you’ve ever dined at Rumi’s Kitchen. SeaBass Kitchen specializes in the freshest seafood and authentic Mediterranean cuisine, and it’s one of the few restaurants that caters to paleo and gluten free diets.
This was my first time dining at SeaBass Kitchen, so I really didn’t know what to expect. Prior to dining there, I decided to take a look at their menu which is actually pretty unique. There’s a wide variety of menu options ranging from flatbreads, Chilean Sea Bass, Skate Wing, and Filet Mignon. After viewing the menu, I was excited to dine, and I immediately added grilled octopus to my must-try list.
But before I get into my dining experience, the location was easy to locate, and the restaurant offered valet which was a plus for me. When you first walk into the restaurant, you get an awesome feel. The bright yellow walls and ceramic mural gives you a great feel. The restaurant isn’t too big and isn’t too small. It’s the perfect intimate setting. There’s an option for private dining as well which would be ideal for a birthday party or a girls’ night out.
Their entire menu has several must-trys. On this particular visit, I tried three appetizers: the crab cake, grilled octopus, and the grilled lobster tail. The crab cake had very light to minimum breading and plenty of crab meat, and it was also pan fried. I loved their crab cakes, and it’s definitely worth ordering. After my crab cake, the grilled octopus was presented.

I imagined the dish to be similar to squid, or even slimy (I know. That’s so cliché). On the contrary, the grilled octopus was firm and flavorful. If I had to describe the taste of this dish, I would describe it as slightly chewy, but with a firm texture. Surprisingly, grilled octopus is now my new favorite appetizer. The lobster tail was enjoyable. It was served with a creamy orzo & citrus butter sauce. Orzo is a variety of pasta shaped, like, grains of barley or rice. The creamy orzo and the citrus sauce served with the lobster tail made the appetizer pleasurable.
My latest obsession has been kale. I was very happy that kale was on the menu as a side dish. After long consideration, I ordered the Branzini. Branzini is a European Sea Bass. This fish is served whole, but the chef does filet the fish. The Branzini is cooked in extra virgin olive oil and the only seasonings used are lemon juice and oregano. This fish has minimum bones, was flaky, moist, and had an exquisitely sweet and mild flavor. The Branzini was served with kale and jasmine rice which was perfect because I was full, but I wasn’t miserably stuffed. My date tried the shrimp scampi and the hanger steak which is on my bucket list for the next visit. Last, but not least, SeaBass Kitchen has a fabulous wine list that offered a nice variety to choose from.

I adore this restaurant because of its intimate feel, high quality of seafood, and awesome service. My server was amazing and very knowledgeable of the menu. Make sure you stop by and visit SeaBass Kitchen!
