Our waiter Robert was one of the best waiters I’ve ever had anywhere.
The food is insane. Octopus, mushroom flatbread, scallops and risotto were so good.

Busy Sat. night! Took forever to get a drink! VERY noisy! Ordered 1/2 doz. oysters- no cocktail forks with it. they were excellent once we were able to eat them. whole main lobster wasn't fully cooked. bone in filet was excellent. VERY expensive. Special occasion place. it was our anniversary- no one said a thing to us and i put it in our reservation notes.

We have been to Lobster Bar Sea Grille many times. The food is consistently exceptional, service is usually great and the ambiance is wonderful. At our most recent visit we ordered the surf & turf special. We were able to choose which salad & dessert we wanted. The price, we feel, was very reasonable. We would highly recommend it.

This is about 4th or 5th time I've dined here. This last time Saturday Nov 30th was the best by far ! My best girl friend(just friend)from Texas flew in to visit over weekend and I missed her birthday earlier so I wanted a special dinner for her. Right away I knew I was taking her here. I broke my foot but was determined to keep our dinner date. The young lady at the door was very nice and accommodating finding us a perfect table (booth) due to my crutches and leg brace.From start to finish the service by our waiter John H. was the best I've had almost anywhere in my travels. A complete professional and knows the menu in and out. As well as wine selections. The dinner was timed perfectly and we weren't rushed or ever had to wait for anything. The manager George was very kind and very watchful I noticed of the dining room as I saw him actively helping all his staff constantly. I've owned small hotels years ago and I know how important over seeing staff can be. The complete dining staff were great as other waiters even asked if we were doing ok or poured wine or water for us. Eat for sure the seafood tree, spinach salad made at the table and of course the lobster and Char. In all everything was "SPOT ON". I never write reviews but just had to this time. I'll be back. Just one recommend table clothes on the booths also like the tables. Thanks to John H. waiter and George Gen Mgr. Regards

We had an incredible dinner. Our server Daphne was exceptional and the overall service was great across the board.

The food is fresh and well-made, focused on the ingredients and not on the sauces that overpower lesser seafood choices.

The location at the heart of the Las Olas strip is great, and is matched by the ambience and decor inside.

Was told how amazing this restaurant was. We had a 7:30 reservation. We had to wait approx 20 mins to be seated. Hostess did not offering to carry our drinks. I only mention because we saw multiple other people seated where the host carried their drinks. We waited another 15 plus minutes for a server to approach. I flagged a manager who offered to help. We order apps. We saw them sitting in the kitchen window for 15 plus minutes. When they arrived, they were cold. We did notify the server and the manager came over, apologized and took them off our bill. The apps were delicious but cold. We ordered the fried lobster for dinner based on the servers description of being lightly fried. When it arrived, it reminded us of extra crispy KFC. We peeled away the heavy fried batter. The lobster was delicious, but we were disappointed in how it was prepared. We waited almost 40 mins for our dinner. At one point the server came back to ask us what we ordered again, which left us to believe that he never put our order in. We were disappointed in our overall experience. I appreciated the manager recognizing the issue with the apps and took care of them.

Dinner was good but the 4 pound lobster in my opinion had no more than 2 pounds in it if that we had six of them at the table and everybody felt the same way very disappointing that we didn’t really get what seem to be a 4 pound lobster full of meat.

My husband and I had an early dinner pre-show at Performing Arts Ctr. Service was excellent and very accommodating to our time schedule. Shared delicious dishes including; beef tartare, shishito peppers, octopus and lobster medallions...we loved everything! Does get noisy in dining room as the restaurant fills with patrons.

Honestly the lobster was overcooked. It was chewy, not very good at all. Over all the service was just ok but not what you’d expect in this type of restaurant but maybe a Denny’s. Need I say more.

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
