I’ve been to the Lobster Bar many times...usually for a business dinner. This evening I chose to bring a date. I found it extremely noisy, and the service sub par. I’m not a jerk tattling...but when one is trying to impress cocktails should be served together, as well as the entrée . The fish was flavorful, yet tasteless seasoning.
Knowing beforehand that this place is pricey, I expected better.

Celebrating a work promotion and looked around at reviews online to awesome place in Ft Lauderdale to go and enjoy the evening. Our server Marco was the best! We had a full experience, half price bottle of wine, a awesome dinner and desert. My boyfriend and I will defiantly be back and highly recommend to anyone who wants a upscale place downtown.

Truly a wonderful place to eat. The food was excellent. Bar was wonderful as well. They were quite busy so my only negative is a service issue. Perhaps the wait staff needs to be increased just a little to ensure timely service and the attention expected with the prices charged. Will give them a second chance given the excellent atmosphere and food.

Atmosphere fabulous, great vibe in the restaurant, service was absolutely outstanding, menu selection very good, drinks very good. However, on the night we were there, the food execution was very poor. We ordered surf and turf for two and had to send back the steak. The kitchen had cut it into slices then let it sit under a heat lamp. When it finally made it to the table it was dried out badly and of poor quality. They then attempted to nuke it instead of replace it, and the results were not good. We ate the lobster which was a little overdone and threw away the steak.

On the good side, they did not charge us for the dish. It seemed like the kitchen was staffed with folks that did not understand the nuances and details of a high quality plate.

Service however was first rate.

Too busy for my taste, staff constantly running back and forth. Tables are too close and crammed to where it hard for wait staff to walk let alone customers.

Food was good and fresh. Creme brûlée was awful!

Reservamos con una semana de anticipacion en el comedor y cuando llegamos nos sentaron en las mesas frente al Bar, aun cuando llegamos antes de la hora de la reserva, muchisimo ruido. Llevamos invitados y casi no pudimos conversar bien lor por ruido. Hable con la encargada y no sirvio de nada.
La comida estaba buena menos los stone crabs. Estaban que se deshacian debe ser por el mal manejo, no parece que estaban frescos mas bien mal descongelados.
Son cliente frecuente del lobster bar y es la primera vez que me secepcionan con esos dos temas

Very noisy -difficult to carry on a conversation with our table. Service was extremely slow from start to finish. Very long wait time between sitting down and service beginning, very long wait in between first course and main course, etc.

Would not return.

I was alone,and the restaurant was empty, yet I was seated next to the raw bar that smelled of rotting fish. I asked to move, and was seated instead right next to the kitchen, which was noisy, but at least smelled good. I would say this is not a good spot for women traveling alone. Clearly, they were not going to give me one of the tables out of the fray. The food was delicious, my server solicitous and attentive, but the bill was astronomical.

All of the food was prepared to absolute perfection! The Signature lightly fried lobster tail was incredibly delicious and the bone-in ribeye was one of the best steaks I’ve ever had the pleasure to enjoy. I’d would highly recommend to any of my fellow “Surf and Turfer’s” A+

The service was extremely slow. Never knew it takes over an hour to service stone crabs.
They forgot the steak knife for the filet. Never brought the crab fork. Dinner took over two hours. Had to be chasing down our order and utensils all night. They did bring bread twice without us having to ask for it. Must have been stalling and trying to fill us with bread since the meals weren’t coming out. We didn’t even want to order dessert just wanted to leave. All this for $696.00 before the tip! And we were only 3 people. What a waste of time and money. Shameful this was a great restaurant. Last two visit we have seen it slipping. Didn’t say anything before but had to this time. Ruined our Friday night.

I planned on the Twilight Dinner Menu, a quick review of the menu seemed like a great deal for only $49. But decided to dine at the bar as I was eating alone, where I found Happy Hour pricing on small plates and beverages. Calamari was delicious! Oysters were fresh and drinks were good. I plan on visiting again, soon.
