    I came here with high hopes. The decor is beautiful and the service was good. The drinks that we ordered were not good at all. The first 2 we sent back and then ordered a glass of wine and another cocktail. The cocktail was not good but I chose not to send it back. The food was mediocre and lacked refinement, we expected more. We saw a lot of dishes go by that looked really nice. We Maybe we just ordered a the wrong things. We came here for our anniversary and everyone made sure to congratulate us on our special occasion which was very nice. They also arranged for us to have a special dessert presented at the end of our meal which was very nice. We may give this place another shot but we did leave dissapointed.

    Service was excellent. Food was decent but not what we expected, price tag was hefty even though we shared the spinach salad and chili lobster. Glad we experienced it, but not dying to go back anytime soon.

    What a disappointment. I was looking forward to the lobster bisque. It was tasteless and barely warm. We sent it back and the waiter told us that the manager agreed that there was a problem. I think it came from a can! We ordered crab cakes that were good with a big side of mashed potatoes. The potatoes were barely warm as well. No excuse for $11.00 mashed potatoes. I think they might even have been instant mashed potatoes. The whole expensive experience made us feel like suckers. They also had no Maine lobster. You live and learn.

    Absolutely amazing experience. Ordered appetizers, seafood tower, steak, and desserts. All items were exceptional and fresh. I’ve eaten MANY steaks at high end restaurants and this one was the best I’ve ever had. The service was also outstanding. Our waiter explained everything on the menu with patience and excitement. Was not pushy at all and gave us our time. Restaurant was also clean.

    Upon entering the restaurant, we could not believe how beautiful the restaurant was. If you are from the New York City area, you have to see the interior because if you have been in Grand Central Station, you will recognize the architecture. We were brought back to our table and was greeted by Natalie. She gave us the history of the architecture, gave us the specials of the day, and what dishes the restaurant is known for. She had great suggestions! The food was excellent! For an appetizer, the tuna with caviar on top (for $10 more) was such a treat! If you love Caesar salads and want something better, get the new Caesar Salad! For our entrees, three of us had the breaded lobster tails that they are known for. The lobster tails were so tender. There was a lot of lobster in the 2 tails. The other main entree was the tuna. It was also great- served on mashed potatoes and a great sauce outlining the plate. As for sides, we had the best French fries and spinach with feta cheese that we will make when we go home. For dessert the profiteroles were the best we ever had and the blueberry pie with sliced almonds and ice cream on top was better than we could have imagined. To top it off, we had fun. Natalie’s colleagues came over to remove dishes, bring food or drinks as we engaged with them. I want to come back again! One of the BEST restaurants and restaurant experiences WE have ever had!

    We sat outside, where it was quieter. The service was great but the food was so institutional and bland. Really not worth the price at all. The tuna tartar wasn’t fishy but had no flavor, and was topped with what looked and tasted like packaged pre made blended-to-death guacamole. The material served with it was supposed to be like crispy rice cake or shrimp cracker type consistency - it was stale or ruined by humidity and had zero crunch. Everything else was better but nothing amazing.

    My husband and I dine out at least twice a week. We decide to try Lobster Bar and Grill with another couple who have been there before. We have been to most of the restaurants on Las Olas but somehow had overlooked LBG. The decor inside is really modern and clean looking with the kitchen as their main focus in the center of the restaurant. Our server Johnathon was at our table took our drink orders and explained specials The appetizer special was fried crab on pizza. Being adventurous we tried it. It was not good. It was just a fried crab on top of a small raw pizza dough with onions on top , some olive oil and garlic. It was worse then I could have imagined . The dough wasn't even cooked . My friends and husband ordered the fried Octopus, which was tasty and a Salad with chickpeas , nothing special. I would have liked to have seen a few more salads on the menu. I ordered the Sea Bass which is supposed to be a favorite there. When the entrees came out my plate wasn't hot as they normally tell you to be careful. I went ahead and tried a few bites and my fish was very lukewarm. I don't normally send food back but I had to. It was terrible. They said I would have a fresh dish so I waited When the server arrived back it looked great and I "dug in" as they say. Not only wasn't it hot but it was rubbery. Was it Microwaved? I actually started to feel sick after the few bites Yes i sent it back for good. The brussels sprouts ordered as a side were not roasted as said by server and again not hot. My husband didn't finish his flounder , but my girlfriend seemed to enjoy her scallops. Her husband had lobster tails which again was ok. I ordered coffee and dessert which was fine. Chocolate Mousse Cake, And a Creme Brule which was nice. Long story short, I love being with our friends enjoying good food and drinks but Lobster Bar and Grill was not up to par. I will not be back. For all the hype I expected better. And the menu needed more food options.

    We love coming to the Lobster Bar! Always amazing service, delicious food, and gorgeous ambiance. We had the lobster bisque this time with the lobster bonus and it was very tasty—the cognac gave it a rich depth and the sweet lobster provided balance. The whole fish special was perfect as usual, and we tried steak for the first time. The filet was cooked to perfection. We finished with the chocolate soufflé which was divine. The rich chocolate was offset by the light and billowy yet creamy and smooth soufflé. We will definitely be back! Thank you for such a lovely evening and treating us so well!

    The restaurant itself is pretty nice inside. The service was mediocre at best. t times waiting for awhile before server came by again. The most disappointing part was the food itself. The lobster bisque tasted of a burnt grill. The lobster risotto had pieces of shell in it. Drinks were good. Way overpriced for level of attention to detail and food flavor and presentation. Trying to be upscale but not there.
