  • "And if you don't love lobster, try the Sea Bass! Great atmospehere and Happy Hour is fantastic too!"

  • "the food was good very good, but the waiter (003 -moses) simply went through the motions as being a server. He took the fun out of the dinner and the service was so slow it killed the rest of our night. Dinner took like over 2 hours. We don't ever think Moses even cracked a smile all night..."

  • "We stumbled upon this place while looking for a new seafood restaurant on the opentable app. The inside of the restaurant was beautiful, the food was delicious and the prices were fair. My only complaint would be that our server was obviously training a new girl, and while it started off wonderfully, once we got our dinners we never saw our server again until well after we had finished. We were starting to get restless waiting for her, despite the many other staff tending to us (filling our waters and clearing our plates). Overall it's a great place and we will be back."

  • " Friendly host staff. John, our server was excellent. Busser was present for table service as appropriate. Food delicious! Compliments to kitchen staff who kept noise level low with our booth next to an open kitchen. Wine list above average. Overall a very nice experience. Thanks"

  • "Pricey, for sure. But as the adage goes - you get what you pay for, most of the time. This restaurant excels on all fronts. Service, ambiance, food and beverage. Our server and bartender, Ty, is a professional. He took excellent care of our group of four from bar service to food service. Ty covered the lounge and bar with no problem, albeit we were seated for a late lunch. No complaints here. No bargains here either, but definitely worth the $$$ spent. We will all be back !"

  • "The Octopus is a must try! The service is completely amazing and and the wine list is extensive. All in all, it's one of my new favorite restaurant"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Good. The food was delicious. High quality and good. The steak was prepared medium rare but was hot. the lobster was tender and succulent.. The profiteroles was fantastic . The wine list was extensive . Bad. The service was too quick. This is not a cafeteria ! The bread was restaurant made but flavorless. The bok choy was gritty and the chopped salad was sliced up NOT CHOPPED. All this did not deter me to try again as the pluses outweigh the minuses"

  • "Although, I requested a window table for special occasion and it was confirmed when they called me on Saturday morning, nevertheless, we were seated at a large table for two of us near the kitchen. When objected, it took half hr for a window table to become available. When the main course arrived after 45 minutes, it was ice cold which I returned. Although, my wife was happy with her lobster dish, the sweet sauce on my sea bass was awfull. I noticed a lot of customers were unhappy about the service which apparently was due to kitchen being backed up. When I discussed my dissatisfaction with the manager, he was reluctant to do anything about it except offering his apology. We are definitely NOT going back nor recommending it to anyone."

  • "Excellent starters and fresh hole fish. Real Mediterranean style preparation and taste."

  • "Handsome restaurant with wonderful food. I had the shrimp and crab cocktail - scrumptious - beautifully presented with grated horseradish, catsup, and a thousand island type dressing. My husband had the incredible clam chowder - equally wonderful. Caesar salad very good, but atypical dressing. Would have preferred a classic caesar. We both had lobster rolls for our entree - jam packed with delicious Maine lobster in a delicious dressing. Dessert with ice cream, Italian meringue, sauce, etc. was unbelievable. Dulce de leche ice cream good but not enough varietyal flavor. Wine by the glass selection also excellent. If we go to Fort Lauderdale again we will come back."

  • "The food was very good. The tuna carpaccio was more of an aspic. I think they should have made that clearer."

  • "The food was superb. Our waiter, Willie, was superb. a very beautiful restaurant. From the moment, we entered the hostesses and every member of the staff was attentive and attuned to our needs. the only reason that it did not receive 5 stars, was because of the noise. We (and many other people) never understand, why music is so loud, ceilings are structured to amplify the noise. Most of us go to dinner with family and friends and want to also enjoy conversation. but we found ourselves shouting across the table and left the restaurant with hoarse voices. We would go again, due to the food and service, but try to do it when it was early"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The noise was overwhelming to the point of not being able to carry on a conversation without raising your voice. They need better acoustics. The service is impeccable. The food was good. I love the Tuscan Kale Salad - great flavors. The Signature fried lobster was good, but the breading was too salty."

  • "You have to try their menu special lobster. Wine list needs to be expanded. Waiter very helpful and not pushy."

  • "Lobster Bar Sea Grille was fabulous from the ambiance of the restaurant, welcome by the hostess, waitress giving 100% of tremendous service and menu advice, the assistant server removing plates and filling the water glasses to the food including the best Maryland Crab Cake and Fried Lobster we ever had. The food and service was outstanding."

  • "Beautiful decor, my wife had a 3lb lobster( weight was questionable) that look like it was thrown on the plate. Service was good, price is high."

  • "Customer service for a place of this caliber was subpar. We arrived early, was told we couldn't be seated until our res time. Our res time came up, and our table was still not prepared. Had to ask to have our dishes removed from table post dinner. The place lacks attention to detail. Nowhere near the caliber of fine dining one would expect. Side dishes were brought to the table, and the server did not serve. Maestros can teach this place a thing or two."

  • "Great energy! I couldn't believe it was Monday night! The service was outstanding. Our server kept apace with our needs...we never had to ask for a single thing. The appetizer mushroom flatbread was generous enough for both of us to share. We each ordered a lobster tail for dinner ...DELICIOUS! Will definitely be back soon."

  • "Great fresh gush and seafood. Servers are very knowledgeable about recommending preparations fir each fish."

  • "I never complain online; however.... This was the single worst dining experience I have ever had. Despite table being open, we had to wait at the bar for 30 minutes. The waiter brought me the wrong cocktail. My date's lobster was brought out fried, when she requested it be grilled. We told the waiter not once, but twice when we ordered. Then my rack of lamb went back under the heat lights while they re-made her dinner. When dinner came out, one rack was great, but the other was overcooked. The mashed potatoes were cold. I asked for a manager. I watched the server walk up to a man in a suit, he looked over at me, and then walked in the other direction. Simply unacceptable. "

  • "Very disappointed! This was 3rd visit for my family and first 2 were outstanding. Last Friday night my sister was visiting ft. Lauderdale where we have a home and I suggested the $19 tail along with a salad wine and couple sides. In the past the tail has been a nice size and for the ladies very much the right size especially if you want to have wine a salad, etc. I was embarassed as the tail was literally 3 bites and that was it. I commented to your manager and he ended up comping the meal which was not what I was intending. I just hope you will go back to your nice portion of this as it was perfect for me and a couple of my friends there locally. Turning the tables quickly is important to LG."

  • "As someone who truly enjoys a good fish meal, I was interested in dining at the Lobster Bar Sea Grille to celebrate my birthday. Heard rave reviews from friends and newspaper. Best fish dinner I have had in Fort Lauderdale!! We shared the seafood cerviche and jumbo shrimp appetizers. Cerviche had a variety of perfectly sliced and prepared fish including lobster. Then shared a whole striped bass. Enough for two and very tasty and moist, again perfectly cooked. Seafood tower looked delicious and will probably try that. Service was wonderful, with opportunity to taste wine before ordering. Also, had creme brulee courtesy of the chef for my birthday. Highly recommend, not too sweet vanilla taste and excellent consistency. "

  • "I am so glad I didn't go by the nay sayers - this was a great experience accompanied by great fish and seafood. I have never liked the whole fish thing - but this was beautiful and easy on the eyes. So having the whole fish was a wonderful experience and can usually feed two. The octopus appetizer - my 1st time eating octopus - my standards are really high when eating it again. Octopus was "FABULOUS". I would even stop in for drinks and Octopus - and just might do that next weekend. "

  • "Our waiter was the great! The best lobster bisque ever! The famous fish grilled on sea salt was pricy $100 (snapper) and it was missing a good drizzil of olive oil, salt, and pepper. All the desert are great! "

  • "Gorgeous room! Menu had good assortment of onteresting fresh fish. We opted for the Dover Sole (which isn't really fresh) and it was excellent!"

  • "I was invited to celebrate a special dinner on a crowded Saturday night. The Lobster Bar Sea Grille is a very popular spot on trendy Las Olas Boulevard and although we had reservations, there was a slight but manageable wait for a table. It was well worth it. We sat in an excellent area by the window. Our waiters were knowledgeable, attentive and good conversationalists. It was fun-filled evening with great food, great wine, and great service. I would highly recommend the Lobster Sea Grille to anyone who wants a high quality dining experience!"
