    The Lobster Bar is a physically is quite beautiful and references the Oyster Bar in Grand Central Station with its tiled arches. It aspires to the higher tiers of restaurants, but unfortunately, on our night fell far short. We started with oysters and their Mediterranean octopus. The octopus was delicious. The oysters unfortunately, were not well prepared and several had shell shards in them. The night we were there, there was a special of halibut wrapped in prosciutto. I requested the halibut without the pork product, and the waiter checked with the chef and reported that it could be done. What I got, was a piece of halibut that had the prosciutto removed and had been “rinsed” and tasted of prosciutto. Not the way a dietary restriction should be treated. A restaurant serves Wagyu beef at $35 per ounce, should be able to honor dietary requests. The creamed spinach was delicious, as was the lobster mashed potatoes, though it swam in butter. The potatoes had at least 6 ounces of well prepared lobster. The waiter had the maitre’d come over and he had the general manager come over without my requesting it….a nice action that showed that they were concerned about the dining experience. He took appropriate acton, and also offered coffee and desert. Expect dinner to be $100 per person plus. We will give them a try again.

    The ambiance was inviting. Webster who was our waiter described the food and preparation as a short-story film leaving my wife and I intrigued on what food selection to make. We enjoyed the 🦪’s, 🦞’s,🥩 and stone 🦀’s. You will close your eyes with a long pause and enjoy each bite as the food is served to perfection. We will be back…

    The food and vibe at Lobster Bar was fantastic. James our server went above and beyond to make our experience amazing. His service was out of this world. One of the best servers we have ever had at a restaurant without a doubt. He was on top of everything and knew the menu from top to bottom. I give him and the Resturant a five star review.

    I have been here around 10 times. But, it has been about 9 months since I was last here. So let me list some issues- The prices have gone through the roof. We had 5 total drinks in the bar. Not top shelf, just regular bourbon.. $125.... The service was slow. We waited for the waiter to bring the menus and then waited a long time for our food order. The seafood tower is now a platter. Not sure what happened there, but I have gotten it enough times to see a massive difference. Our main course came before the sides and by the time the sides came the meal was almost over. Also, bread was not refilled. Once the rolls were gone that was it. The food is very good, but for $700 plus for 4 people it should be outstanding across the board. And that number does not include the bar tab or tip. It is also very loud.. not sure why I never noticed that before.. but it seamed unusually load this time. Maybe it was the table location..

    We frequent Chops Lobster Bar in Boca. Since we were in Ft. Lauderdale, we decided to try the Lobster Bar. Unfortunately, we did not feel it compared to the Boca location. No specials, rolls were eh, limited menu. Would not return.

    Great meal and terrific bar staff. They ling paragraph of dress code is a joke. We were dressed but they will seat exactly how they tell you not to arrive.. if you’re going to out that out there then enforce. . If not take it down. Its misleading two people spent almost 500 at the bar, three people standing at the desk upon leaving and no goodbye, no thank you no come back.. so no worries there, the food was great but there is just as good food on this strip but with gratitude

    It would have been nice to hear some back ground music to help the noise level and create a better vibe. The food was excellent. The service was average which was surprising in such an elegant restaurant. The food didn’t come out all together, and the drinks took a very long time.

    We have been many times over the years. The last couple of times i noticed a decrease in the quality and taste of dinner. Last night the saving grace was the spinach salad. My spouse’s fish was undercooked to the point if was raw. The substitute was average. My dover sole was average. Service was so bad that i actually could not bring myself to give my normal 20+%.

    It was extremely noisy. The food for the price left a lot to be desired. It was the smallest lobster tail I have ever seen? It was not 6 or 8 ounces? The potato tots were too salty but the service recommended them? It was suppose to be creamed spinach but it was spinach with feta cheese tossed on top of it. Desert was never offered. I won’t be back. For $300 I should have enjoyed it immensely?

    We had an 830 reservation at 9 o’clock the hostess with the black rim glasses attractive girl told us we had another 20 minute wait until Anthony the manager walked up without even knowing us knew that we had been waiting all said to the hostess I will find him a table and quickly sat us! She was rude and unaccommodating to someone who had an 830 reservation, making them wait almost an hour … unacceptable! Thank you, Anthony you were a gentleman and a great manager

    Lobster Bar Sea Grille is a fine seafood and steak restaurant. Elegant and charming atmosphere. The food was delicious and well presented. My sister truly enjoyed her "All Jumbo Lump Crab Cake "Maryland". We were amazed at not only the quality of food, but also the service. Our server, Hernando was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations. The East Coast Oysters were very fresh. We also enjoyed the Whole Lobster & Black Truffle Risotto". Extensive wine and cocktail list. Great desserts, especially the profiterole. Highly recommended!!!
