    I guess it was because it was a spectacular Sunday, that the place was crowded, but the lack of service was evident. Took awhile to get our drinks. Had to ask for bread. Saw other tables around us getting bread, but not us. Then when it was brought to us, we were told more was on it's way, and none ever came. Took a long time for appetizers to arrive. Table behind us ate and left before we even got our appetizers. Dinner took close to two hours without dessert. We had no place to go, but the flow of orders was inconsistent. Maybe next time they will do better. Have been here many times, so this was the worse timing of plates we have ever experienced.

    Had a great brunch with 10 friends for my birthday. One of Langosta's signature dishes is eggs Benedict with lobster. It never disappoints. They're breakfast potatoes are also a unique treat, full of carmelized onions and perfectly cooked potatoes.

    Been there twice. The staff has been friendly and accommodating each time. Very professional and knows the menu and specials in great detail. Love the Pu pu platter and the Mac and cheese is alway a BIG hit. Eclectic menu with all kinda of neat choices. Always a great choice for dinner before a show at The Stone Pony or The Wonder Bar..

    Great view of the ocean but only if you make sure to ask in advance. The wine list is middle of the road but great mixed drinks and friendly vibe. The thai lobster dish is what keeps us coming back. On a Saturday night staff is a bit overwhelmed.

    Very busy and hectic and quite loud but very cute and quirky spot with delicious food and good service. The lobster curry and short ribs were amazing. The vacation fish of the day was quite nice but not memorable at all. The description sounds amazing but it was really quite bland. Ground chicken lettuce wraps were mediocre and the special nachos were interesting. Totally decent wine list - beautiful view right on the beach. Would absolutely go back and/or recommend it. The only problem with this restaurant is the bathroom. Absolutely disgusting bathrooms - straight up filthy with water all over the floor and paper towels everywhere and dirty stalls. At least the ladies rest rooms were dirty - not sure about the mens.

    I love Langosta, been there MANY time, I am a loyal customer. Tapas Tuesday was a great idea but they didn't execute it very well. We got the wrong appetizers, but ate them anyway. The dinner was supposed to come with a "wine tasting" which consists of 4 small glasses of 4 different wines on a board which paired well with the stuff we ordered. The waiter informed us that the were out of clean wine glasses due to the popularity of the special and we waited until out main course came out before the wine was delivered to out table. So the purpose of the sampling was way past the timing of the food served. This glitch would not stop me from returning BUT management should be aware that if they are going to run a special please follow through.

    tables too close-we had to sit pretty much right next to other people's kids which was not what we wanted for our night out without our kids. server was horrible. never greeted us-walked over and asked what do we want to drink,dropped off drinks,came back,asked if we were ready to order. took order,walked away,meal took about 45 mins to arrive.in the meantime he said nothing to us.passed us 5-6 times before refilling our drinks.never asked if we needed anything or if food was ok.dropped bill off, took payment and ran off.we had a gift card credit card we wanted to use but he split the bill with our credit card. we wanted to explain this but he ran off with the cards. we understand it was busy, but his neglect is beyond reasonable.

    We had a reservation at 7:15 however we weren't seated until 8:00. It was so loud it was difficult to carry a conversation. There were 8 of us, 3 of the meals were almost unedible. The pizza was soggy with barely any lobster on it. And the lobster that was on it was overcooked. The tuna on the sushi was not fresh. And the dish with aromatic vegan floral flavor was by far the worst meal I have ever tasted. On a positive note the rigatoni, curry and short rib meals were very good. The waitress had trouble remembering your order. For example, she gave us a California roll instead of the calamari that we ordered. When she served drinks she spilled one of them. Needless to say the service was not good at all.

    They have fixed their horrendous service problems of years past. Our server William was very good. Side room was stuffy; they should have propped open the door to the outdoor dining area. Appetizers were very good especially the lobster carbonara pizza. Entrees were only Ok. Short rib was very dry. Pork rib sauce was good but quality of ribs only so-so. Found out only when served that they were out it sweet potato fries that were supposed to come with the ribs. Shouldn't have had to ask what was up with getting regular fries.

    We've been to Langosta's before. Food was good, place was noisy and bar was hopping. Our table wasnt ready so we thought we'd wait in the bar. No space to stand abd have a drink. Once seated drinks came quickly but food was slow to come out. Once we were served, food was very good. We actually walked around for a while and came back. The live band was terrific. We would go again but probably have a drink someplace else first.

    We were seated promptly and our reservation requests were honored. One of the tables was rocking a little bit and the waitress promptly seated us elsewhere at a steader table. Because we were in another room, the waitress may have forgotten about us for a little while. When she came back, she apologized for not coming by sooner. The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. The menu is somewhat limited but they were flexible about accommodating our requests not to use certain ingredients. This was our first time dining here and we would definitely come back.

    If an event is going on there is no parking. We had 2 cars for a party of 8 and had to pay $20 per car to park in lot. This IS NOT NYC, restaurant should make arrangements for reduced rate parking for their customers who show restaurant receipt. Good food but we started in paying $40 to park, not worth it. Also 2 people at bar needed to get a room, gross.

    We were pleased with our food. Howere the Ahi tuna was a bit over cooked, but still delicious! Another suggestion would be to lower the price of the house wine, or fill the glass more. $9.00 for barley any house wine. Overall the experience was good. The sushi was fresh and tasty.

    We had a great experience; food was good, service was good- waitress was very friendly and helpful. Only downside, we had to wait a long time for our dessert. The dessert was a tropical fruit pudding which needed to be heated up in oven, but by the time it was served, it was cold. The dessert was very tasteful and would have been the perfect ending to a wonderful night, if arrived on time and was warm.
