    outstanding time by all! Dinner for 4 Saturday night, great service, food. Only complaint was that we were seated by the door, but outside of that it was top notch. I personally had the dry aged bone in strip, brussel sprouts, truffle fries, Caesar and the bread pudding for dessert. All our meal choices were on point and the taste was outstanding. Cant wait to go back.

    Dined on 11/1/2014
    This was one of the best meals I have ever had in Atlanta. We went there for my husband's birthday. We had oysters, escargot and a smoked salmon appetizer. Everything was fresh and well prepared. My husband loves lamb and it was very good. The steaks are excellent and so was the dover sole that they filet for you on a cart. I also liked the brussell sprout leaves side. The restaurant is a bit pricey and you have to order your sides ala carte. But, there were 5 of us so 3 sides was really plenty. Definitely, a great special occasion place. Will be back there no doubt. Yum....

    Dined on 11/1/2014
    We usually dine here at least once a year for the outstanding seafood selections. We started with a tuna appetizer, then I had the seafood medley, including a delicious South African lobster tail, salmon and a crab cake. My husband got an oriental seafood/sea bass/salmon dish which he loved. I took my crab cake home with me to enjoy the next day since I was so full. If you love seafood and lobster, this is the place to be.

    We love to eat at The Lobster Bar if we get a chance while visiting Atlanta. The food is great, and will not disappoint. It's a very vibrant scene, great for adults. And although I wouldn't necessarily call this a place for children, the staff has always been so very nice to our children: the bartender brought a live lobster out for our kids to see/touch, the server brought them extra cherries in their Shirley Temples, etc.

    Great location! has valet parking! Ambiance was perfect, lighting was just right no problem reading the menu. Food was outstanding, we had the Porter House for two, steak was cook to the right temperature and melted in your mouth. The calamari and Lobster appetizer were delicious and right portion size. The lobster macaroni & cheese was out of this world. desserts were "the icing on cake" The wait staff were the best I had, they were on top of all our needs.

    We have been going to lobster bar since it's opening, but this time we took guests and were disappointed. The lobster was "tough". Our friend had the lobster tail and it was very chewy, my husband has his usual "flash fried" and said the same. The area where we sat was filled with cigar smoke from the nearby club. So much so, we had to hang our clothes outside when returning home. Even though service was ok, it seemed a little less crisp than the last time we had been to Lobster bar. We will return and give it another chance but not too soon. We love it there so hope they improve this decline.

    Always one of the best in Atlanta, Chops is still the top of the heap. Fantastic food and service. Whether upstairs or down, the ambiance is fun and comfortable. The lobster tempura is delicious, and the huge onion rings are not to be missed. Steaks are perfectly prepared and great quality. All of the appetizers we tried, including the carpaccio and beef tenderloin tartare were splendid. A really great restaurant with great service and delighfully delicious food.

    One party ordered a mixed cocktail and was very disappointed since it hardly contained any liquor. He told the waiter who said he would fix it and brought another cocktail that was much better but my friend was charged for it. I think that this was terrible in a restaurant where we spent $175.00 w/o tip for dinner. The restaurant should have picked up the cost of that drink...most disappointed and will probably no longer dine at the Lobster Bar again which always had been one of our favorites.

    As my date and I entered the dining area, we were immediately greeted by friendly staff. As we walked to our table, we were delighted by the lobster bar area and lovely decor. Our waiter was very prompt with taking our drink order and reciting the evenings features and offering suggestions. We ended up ordering a lobsyer bisque, salad, 2ib lobster, filet, honey glazed carrots, Parmesan truffled fries. For the price of the bisque I would expect some shredded lobster in it (for $8 more you can add chunks of lobster), presentation wasn't special but the taste was amazing. The watermelon salad was presented lovely and very refreshing combo. Filet was cooked perfectly MR but not as charred as we thought it would be. Sides delicious. Overall good

    Although extremely overpriced, the food is great. Its a good place for a special occasion, but not going to pay $10 for 1/3 of a glass of wine and $9 for a baked potato very often. Service was OK but the place was so noisy that we could barely carry on a conversation without yelling across the table.

    Our server was excellent and the service was great. The soft shell crab appetizer was one of the best I have ever had. Being from the north (Philadelphia) it has been hard to find soft shells down here (especially done right). As my husband is handicapped and cannot use his left hand and arm, I asked that his steak be cut for him in the kitchen. It was done perfectly.
