Everyone loved their food. Bright atmosphere in the
summer for pre-theater dining.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood value for a business lunchThe prix-fixe lunch offers good choice at a reasonable price. The service is almost too attentive, but if you're into that it works well. For Rock Center lunches, it is one of the better choices6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFeast For A King and QueenCelebrating a birthday should be always be done in style. City lobster staff treated my girlfriend like a queen. The ruffino proseco hit the spot early on. Market Plateau (shrimp,oysters,crab claws and lobster) was a great and fresh way to start our first time experience here at this restaurant. Their field greens salad was very fresh.. I ordered the San Francisco Cioppino. Loved every morsel of it, but left some of the linguine because I am trying to reduce the carbs. lol My girlfriend loved the Chilean Sea Bass. The waiter was attentive and engaging (snapped lots of pictures for us). Chocolate cake with candle sparkles, and the Strawberries with cream were top notch. Can't say enough about this place!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Lunchtook my wife for her birthday.
