We visited for a date night. The tables up front by the bar are a bit noisy and hard to talk over but the back of the restaurant has a beautiful ambiance. The food was good ..though not amazing. Given the high caliber of restaurants in the area I think this was good but just sort of a traditional steakhouse. We were craving seafood. So, we had lobster bisque, salad, tuna steak, sea bass, and an assortment of deserts. But if we could do it over we’d go for the steak/lobster. Deserts were good.

Let’s get down to business. If I could bask in the gloriousness of this food for every meal for the rest of my life, I would do it. It would be worth losing all my money, my dashing good looks, and driving 8 hours every day just to drown myself in those savory French fries and drop dead perfect blueberry pie. Seriously. No joke. Fried Lobster what?! New York strip masterpiece?! Octopus delight?! This place takes things to a level I never even knew existed. Its truly the bomb diggity. And for the absolute mic drop... ask for James. The man is a legend.

Celebrated my birthday and came in for lunch. Food options were fantastic. Service was lacking. Food runner dropped food to anyone on the table without confirming the order. Our group had to switch the food on our own. I expected more for this caliber of a restaurant. Restaurant did not have many tables filled and service was subpar. Water bottle was left empty a few times. Food arrived and new silverware was not present. There were empty plates piling up in the center of the table. We could not find our waiter when we were ready to close out our table. We waited for 20 minutes just to close out when the restaurant wasn’t packed. There wasn’t any anticipation to guest needs. Food was tasty though. Overall, I’ve had better experiences at casual restaurants.

The worst disappointment in years. I do not mind paying big bucks for meals, but our experience was terrible. The table wasn't ready. The waiter was a robot, who didn't care. We had to send the $40 pasta back to be heated in a microwave. Same with the potatoes, and they still came back cold. We have had a good experience there in the past, but this was $250 (for two people), thrown down the drain.

Excellent service. Food was fabulous. We had the lobster morsel as an appetizer. Had surf and turf for entree. The steak was cooked to perfection and had great flavor. Overall great experience and will be back for sure.

Very nice atmosphere and excellent service. However, the food was a little disappointing for the price point. We started with the seafood tower. It was excellent except for the oysters. They were beyond briny and just not tasty. I was really looking forward to the chopped salad, but it was nothing special. The real issue was the lemon lobster risotto $42. While the small quantity of lobster meat was excellent, the risotto was more like soup than risotto. Our meal was finished with the chocolate profiteroles, which were very good.
Our bill before gratuity was $202. And that is without alcohol.

This was our first visit to the restaurant. The ambience and aesthetic were both great. We were seated at a table that was appropriately distanced which was appreciated. The lobster morsels, crab cake & spinach salad were all amazing! The main course, whole lobster and lemon risotto, was, however, anti-climatic. The manager was engaging and willing to make a modification that the chef had refused, which was appreciated.
Overall, it was a pleasant experience and we would dine here again.

Came for an anniversary dinner. The food was delicious and the staff was friendly and attentive. Seating was poor. They had us at a little two top in the middle of the hallway and right where the servers were coming out of the back. Finally, my wife and I were completely turned off by the dress code. At this caliber of a restaurant...guests should not be in shorts and flip flops.

This was the first time at the lobster bar for my office team celebrating Easter and tax season.

The food, service and ambiance were all top notch, and I loved the value price of this meal, enabling me to take care of my CSI team without breaking the bank during this COVID-19 time.

Thank you everyone, well done.

Great experience overall. Waiters and staff are extremely customer focused to ensure you have an exquisite, white glove dining experience.

The Chili Lobster was delicious, the filet mignon was tender and cooked just right; The 32oz tomahawk stake looked delicious too. Their wine selection is extensive and priced reasonably.

The ambiance is tres chick with shiny subway-tiled vaulted ceilings.

Def would dine again.

Went here for lunch today with the parents, and we had a great time! Our server, James, was over and beyond helpful, professional, and very kind. He offered his recommendations for our lunch, which were already some of our picks. If you can come during the week for lunch, know that it is an opportune time since you can have two courses for $26, or three courses for $29. There is a pretty good list of choices for the first two courses, and the dessert course is either a sorbet with berries, or profiteroles (which my Mom and I each got!). We had a true Caesar (with the anchovy), a crab cake, Mediterranean style grilled octopus, lobster rolls, and a steak w/ a healthy-sized wedge salad! I’ve always enjoyed coming to this restaurant, and this has been my first time back since Covid. Safety measures were all in place, so bravo to the whole team. Thank you again to James for a great afternoon!

Lobster bar is always a top quality place to eat. We had the Dover Sole which was very good. The warm spinach salad was outstanding. we sat outside. This area could be dressed up a little more as far as the floor and area rugs. The spinach salad was listed as being made table side which it was not. The Dover Sole is usually boned table side and it was not. This may be because we were outside. Overall, I would recommend Lobster bar as a very top notch restaurant. The inside is very nice also. I will defiantly return next time I am in Fort Lauderdale.

We were celebrating our 31 year wedding anniversary and the experience did not match was we spend there. Service was mediocre; 10 min waiting to be greeted by our waiter who was not busy whatsoever. There is not much to say about the stone crabs appetizer as it is always beautiful; the octopus was grilled perfectly but had an aftertaste of olives and after a few bites had to give up. The best was the Thai lobster! Dover sole was fine not outstanding! the filet mignon was cooked perfectly but was missing the Bearnaise which the waiter missed! had to ask for it. A side dish of quinoa appeared with the rest of our side dishes?! waiter did not even realized it even though we asked what it was.
A busboy spilled water without apologizing?! The seafood display was poor.
We visited some friends in Sarasota and the display at a seafood restaurant was unbelievable, so fresh and so diverse, and their Dover sole tableside was divine. We tipped well because we know that there is a team with the waiter.

The fried lobster appetizer was delicious and a must taste. It was very tender and crispy with a tasty sauce. With the lobster being so delicious we went all in. I had the Lobster Chili dish which was mildly spiced. My wife had the Lobster risotto. Both were excellent.

We don’t live in the Ft. Lauderdale area, but try to hit Lobster Bar any time we’re here because the food and service is always top notch. This visit was no exception. I finally ate the signature lobster dish and it was exceptional. And Mark, our server made great food and cocktail recommendations. We’ll definitely be back!
