    From the moment you pull up to the valet parking to exiting this is a professionally managed restaurant experience. As a first time customer I am anxious to try additional dishes.

    Food was nothing special. My son ordered a 2 lb lobster dish that was maybe 1 lb at best. Celebrated my bday and our anniversary with no acknowledgment/special touch to celebrate these occasions. Very pricey meal for not much value.

    Best experience, beautiful ambiance, was seated quickly with reservation. Was addressed all night by name , waitstaff excellent and the food was amazing. Felt very personalized, during the meal Hostess came by to ask about the meal. The jumbo stone crab was perfect, but my main course of the signature lightly fried lobster tails was amazing! Never had fried lobster before and was blown away. Definitely recommend this beautiful restaurant and we’ll go back again. Definitely a perfect spot for a special occasion.

    I can’t say enough about Antonio and Natalia. They are a credit to your establishment. The food is amazing but the quality of service and the treatment we receive makes us look forward to coming back. We had the stone crabs and steamed lobster and pavlova for dessert. Everything was delicious as always and Emily came over to make sure we were enjoying our dinner.

    We love Lobster Bar. The service is always excellent and the food is beyond delicious. We had the octopus appetizer which was tender and it will be added to our favorites for sure. We always share the tomato Feta salad, very refreshing. For our main course we shared the aged NY Strip which was cooked a perfect medium rare and sliced to make it easier to split. We also had twin lobster tails but opted to have them broiled, melt in your mouth delicious! Highly suggest it for a special night out.

    They accommodated us early and the waiter was amazing. We loved the restaurant vibe and enjoyed the wine and rolls. The food was good but nothing over the top in our dining experience. I would come here again for the vibe service and rolls. Maybe the next order will be more delicious.

    The restaurant was beautiful. The wait staff was attentive and courteous. The escargot appetizer was presented very nicely but was acidic. My wife had the one pound lobster with pasta. The lobster was delicious but the pasta was overcooked and chewy. My shallop entree was cooked to perfection and was outstanding. They had a QR code to pay your bill. I used it and the total came to $175. When I asked for a receipt at the front desk I was told that my credit card did not process. Our waiter came forward and processed our bill immediately. I was then informed that it was $141. I did not appreciate the the discrepancy. I based my waiter’s tip on the $175 and paid him in cash. I would definitely not dine here again .

    Saturday night dinner was absolutely disappointing. Never offered any bread as a starter. Tomahawk Ribeye for 2 was so small for one person with a huge oversized bone. Chops Chopped Salad was drenched in dressing. Appetizer/Ceviche was ok. Appetizer/Octopus was ok, average. Flavors were OK. Steak was served on a wooden board. Never was provided a plate for the steak. Lobster tail (ordered grilled) was extremely dry. The food is mediocre for the price and to make it even worse, the food did not taste authentic. Place was extremely loud, very hard to understand the person who is talking to you due to the extreme noise level. Atmosphere was stressful, everyone was running around, waiters looked stressed and overwhelmed. Dirty dishes were left without attention for an extended period of time. Different staff were running around, my purse was knocked down to the floor by the waiter. The people at the table next to us had to move the lady’s purse to her husband’s chair to avoid the same situation. Hostess checked in with us and we received a complimentary desert. But, overall I don’t recommend you spend your money there. $368 dollars dinner for two with bad service, average food and stressful atmosphere.

    The wine, the salad, and the dessert were spectacular. The stuffed lobster was less so. The stuffing was terrible and they took it off my bill, and off the lobster. Our server was fantastic! I've had lobster with better flavor.

    Hearts of palm salad had no hearts of palm, meals in general were just ok. Drinks were good, service was good until the waiter never came back to check on our meals and one of our filets was terribly undercooked which was never addressed until we were done. They did however take that off the bill. Restaurant was beautifull, but we were disappointed in the food.

    First time here. Have to say that once you get beyond the noise level of everyone trying to have a conversation, this place was fantastic! Mark, our server, was awesome. As was the other staff that helped pick up plates, serve whatever was needed, refill water, serve wine…. Just impeccable! The lobster was on another level. They have a fried lobster that was different and fantastic! Seafood Tower was excellent. Really wanted to try the grilled octopus but the tower was more than adequate for appetizers! Highly recommend Lobster Bar and Sea Grille!!

    Our dinner at Lobster Bar Sea Grille was excellent! I was greeted with a "Happy Birthday" by the receptionist and our waiter. Jimmy provided excellent service. He gave us time when we needed it and was there when we wanted something. He was both polite and friendly towards us though he had many other patrons to serve. While it has not always been the case here, our food was served both hot and delicious on Thursday evening. My broiled lobster with savory lobster dressing was well cooked, conveniently cracked, and delicious. Tom said his barrel cut filet mignon with classic bearnaise was excellent. The glazed Brussels sprouts were tasty. The Crown Royal Manhattans and Zardetto Prosecco did not disappoint. The tropical pavlova with sorbet was excellent and a perfect end to our dinner. This was a wonderful birthday dinner. I hope to be back next year and that it will be just as great.

    Not a great first experience at Lobster Bar. Lets start with the restaurant layout. The tables are fairly close together and it gets very loud. I normally don’t notice noise level enough in restaurants to comment about this, but this place gets extremely loud, to the point it was difficult to hear who was sitting across the table from me. My chair was constantly being hit by servers and patrons going by our table. I made the reservation in advance for 6:15, which is not peak dinner hours in the area, yet I was seated at table by the computer stand. This should have been a table reserved for a walk in, not someone that made an early dinner reservation in advance. The server was attentive to the table. The food itself was ok. I will say the scallops were perfectly cooked and tasted great. The broccolini was really good. The filet was dry and not seasoned very well at all. $72 12oz filet was terrible value for how average it was. If you do decide to go, just stick to the seafood side of the menu. Definitely would not recommend this place. Eddie V's is one street over.
