    Fantastic! We went for the first time for our 5 year anniversary and the seafood and steak were delicious. The service was right on point and although it's pricey, it's worth it to me for those special occasions or if you have it like that.

    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.

Several of the staff members made my sister feel special by wishing her a happy birthday. The ambiance was amazing. And the food was superb! This is now my favorite restaurant in Atlanta.

    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.

    My wife and I dined here for our anniversary. The service was superb. We ordered the arugula and watermelon salad, which was delicious. The entree's, unfortunately, couldn't keep up. My wife, the steak connoisseur, had the bone-in ribeye and I had the sea bass and salmon. For sides, we had the broccoli and carrots. The broccoli was good, but the carrots had to be returned. We couldn't eat them. The flavor of the sea bass, while light and fluffy, was a bit bland. I think that they relied on the accompanying sauce to provide the flavor. My wife's steak was extremely tender but totally lacking flavor. We brought it home to doctor it up but the smell of it in the car made us think otherwise. I'd definitely recommend other places.

    My family planned a birthday dinner for my father and the service staff could not have been more pleasant or helpful. They went to the trouble of timing the cake and candles coming out just at the right time- our waiter set up a code word with me to know when- and were just generally friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The food is perfect every time we go.

    Food was incredible! Crab cakes were the Best I 've ever had. Huge lumps of crabmeat. My strawberry/arugula salad was presented in such an appealing way that I had to make a picture to keep! The steak was so tender and delicious it made my husband wish that he had not saved "room" for more. It was a perfect evening to celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary. Thanks for the wonderful memories.

    We had a really nice meal at Chops Lobster Bar courtesy of the Buckhead Life Group Dining Around card. The prices on the menu were a bit daunting, but the food was outstanding, even though we chose a couple of the more moderately priced entrees. Our server, Kelly, was engaging, charming, and very helpful in navigating the menu and the wine list. We appreciated the ambience and being able to hear each other talk. All in all, a lovely experience.

    The fried lobster app is a classic. All of our food and sides were cooked to perfection. The ambiance is great. We were initially seated at a table in far left corner but the cigar smoke from the club next door was too much. We were amicably accommodated to an even better table. Great spot but you do pay for it. A bit pricey.
