    We reserved a table for four to celebrate a birthday and from the moment we entered the restaurant, until we left, we were happy with our dining experience. It's unfortunately rare today to find a restaurant that has great food AND great service. But not at the Lobster Bar Sea Grille. We chose the $49 four-course dinner. Great selections for appetizers, soup or salad, main course, and dessert. Our fish was cooked perfectly and was fresh and delicious. The wine list was priced right, too. Our waiter was attentive and our service was paced. We weren't rushed, nor were we left wondering where the waiter was. Even the water refills were timely. All in all, it was a well choreographed dinner and highly enjoyable. We left feeling happy and said, "we'll be back!"

    Wife loves Buckhead Group restaurants especially Buckhead Diner. The lobster appetizer was amazing and crab cake was all crab with no filler. She had the rib eye, which was cooked perfectly but was on a bed of sauce for some reason. i had the Halibut which was delicious. Avoid the first booth past kitchen on left...not a good spot and we asked to move. Service was a bit disappointing --we sat at last two top before kitchen and our waitress was also taking care of bar patrons. Good and ambiance were great. Very big bar scene.. Lot of lookers and wannabes and players. Staff did wish us happy anniversary (as noted on our reservation) but that was all -nothing extra to make it more memorable than it already was.

    Our first time here. It was very early (6 pm) on a Saturday night so it wasn't as loud as the reviews warned. We had the Chilean sea bass (very good) and the halibut. I would come back for the 4 course meal which I found out is now offered every night but Saturday. It would allow us to taste more items at a comparatively less price of $49 per person. The interior of the place is really special.

    We continue to entertain clients as well as host numerous family / personal celebrations at this restaurant. They really no how to prepare seafood with their whole fish offerings, their 1,700 degree ovens make perfect prime steaks, and the fried lobster appetizer is to die for. We have never had a bad meal and have been there a dozen times at least.

    When we first got there the host staff and manager(s) left us standing there while they had photographs taken of their group. Other than announcing our arrival to be seated there was very little response by the host staff until something had to be said. Our first impression of the restaurant because of the host staff left us unimpressed with the expected level of service one would expect for a Las Olas establishment. Our waiter was very attentive, but it seemed they were pressed for the sell like a used car salesman. Food was very good and prepared to our liking. Typical Fort Lauderdale restaurant where those who feel the need to be seen and heard will go to.

    We ate here prior to deciding whether or not to use the restaurant for our anniversary. We ere not disappointed, the food was excellent and with some additional training the service would be too. Our server was a little awkward and leaned across the table too much, but that was her only real fault. The fixed price menu represents excellent value for money, and let's you decide whether or not this is the restaurant for you. We ate here and are going back in a couple days to celebrate our anniversary!

    I took my partner here for his birthday dinner as he was craving lobster. Long story short...the lobster was extraordinary but in all honest, the rest of the meal was even better! Our appetizers, mussels and escargot, were both among the t these two jaded New Yorkers have ever had. And my entree - a delectable Chilean Sea Bass on a rice cake bed puts other similar sea bass meals to shame. Everything was perfect, especially our server Elly who topped the night off with a flaming creme brulee in honor of my hubbys birthday! Highly recommended.

    We just had our anniversary dinner there and it was very special. The service and wait staff were impeccable and very attentive. The food was so delicious I don't know where to begin. My wife had the lobster tail and I had the Dover sole. Our sides were the tater tots (yes, no joke) and asparagus. All of it, fantastic. One note though, it is not cheap. I believe in Open Table this restaurant has 2 out of 4 dollar signs. This is not true. 3 to 4 dollar signs for sure. But well worth every penny. Great for special occasions or landing the big client. ;)

    The food and service was superb but if you are looking for somewhere for a romantic evening or, to dine and have a conversation where you don't have to shout, then keep looking. I have dined at many of the Buckhead Life Group restaurants and this most closely resembles their Chop Lobster Bar in Atlanta. Large open dining area with high ceilings and lots of noise. Menu was expansive, the wine list was extensive and the food was delectable. Service was top notch.

    Dinner was classic top notch. We had the east/west oysters, crab cake, broiled lobster, porterhouse steak. The most intriguing part of dinner was the preparation of the brussel sprouts, which was a flavor filled dish of sprout leaves that some poor soul had to peel leaf-by-leaf. Everything had top presentation and flavor. Service was great!!!

    Don't worry about arriving on time for your reservation because you will always have to wait a minimum of 30 min before you are seated. We've eaten here several times & its always the same song & dance. I'd prefer that they just admit that they want you to spend money at their bar. Either that or they just don't know how to run a restaurant. Service is good....food above average. Just be prepared to wait.
