The restaurant only has a few tables filled, that should have been our first clue. Service was slow, they ran out of mashed potatoes (again, they only had a couple of tables filled. How they ran out of mashed I don't know).
With the number of restaurant choices in NYC, pass this one by.
Steaks and lobsters were great. Inexperienced server brought down experience. Prices on steaks on open table menu were about $15 too low
The waiter seemed very disinterested in serving us. Another server brought us our food and our waiter didn't check on us, didn't ask how we liked the meal. The food was disappointing. The cioppino was not good...the onions and mushrooms were mushy as if they had been overlooked and they neglected to serve with a spoon. A very disappointing evening indeed.
Have had several good meals here and this was an "OFF" night--disappointing. Perhaps the lateness of the hour-- 1015pm. Caesar salad was dry and not Fresh. Server was not attentive. He enjoyed talking and would spread himself too thin, by chatting too much at one table and ignoring other tables. Wished to purchase 3 gifts cards. Advised to go ON-line...HOW do you present a gift card to someone ON-line. So-oo IMPERSONAL. Usually the Caesar salad is AMAZING...not so this evening.
Food was overpriced and not that good. Shellfish was chewy and overcooked. Crab legs were skinny with not much meat. We will not go back.
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary in NYC. We had reservations at City Lobster for our honeymoon four years ago, but had to cancel. We made sure to keep our reservation on this trip. We had a great experience. We were able to be seated a few minutes before our reservation time, which was very helpful. Our server, Harris, was friendly and helpful. Our beverages and meals were delicious. Pricey, but worth it. We will definitely recommend City Lobster & Steakhouse to our friends to travel to New York City.
We arrived early - were seated immediately. No wait. Service was excellent. Food was good. Good location. Nice experience. Pricey. Would recommend for special occasion.
Always great food and many choices
Service is great and waiter very friendly
One disappointment was that one of the orders was messed up. We ordered mussels with spicy red sauce, and got white sauce
Food was great but the service was absolutely horrible. Was celebrating my first wedding anniversary the waiter was not attentive at all, he never even told us his name he messed up our order 3 times including my drink we are African American so I think that was a factor because the white couple across from us had the same waiter and he seemed very attentive and engaged with them. The service completely ruined my first wedding anniversary!!!
