My son was in town so I took him to one of my fave restaurants. He loved it as much as I do. Our server, Marc, was stellar and the food was terrific per usual. The fried lobster tail paired with the outstanding steak is my go-to and never disappoints. The spinach salad served table side was delicious. We arrived early (6:15ish) for 6:30 reservation and it was quiet and fairly empty, which was great. By the time we left it was packed and super noisy. All in all, one of my favorite places to eat in SoFlo!

Overpriced. Food was decent. We did have to send back a side dish because it was so bad. I’ve had way better meals for way less.

Ours waitress Natasha was very friendly and nice. She gave us a nice recommendation. The food was delicious as always. The only compline was the oysters. It’s the second time that we order oysters and they are not as good as they used to be. The last time we ordered them they were warm and taste funny. Today they had no taste at all and they were very small and almost no meat. The person who opened the oysters made a really bad job. They were full of cracked shelf. They were just impossible to eat. Hopefully next time oysters will be as good as they used to be

It is high vibe noisy inside!

But they have a very nice patio which is slightly elevated from the street so you can people watch.

As always this restaurant has top quality fish and service.

However the Caesar salad recipe has changed and not for the better. Mine was over spiced, with old lifeless romaine leaves and the croutons are now gone in favour of a slice of not too exciting toasted bread. Very Disappointing!!

Still one of the best restaurants!

Husband enjoyed a 3 pound stuffed Nova Scotia lobster. The lobster and crab stuffing was very savory and flavorful - best he's ever had he said. My NY Strip steak was perfectly cooked medium - very juicy. I did not care for the fried lobster tail- returned it in exchange for a steamed 1 pound lobster. Chopped salad was nice with hearts of palm and a blue cheese wedge. Fresh Key West stone crab had a great mustard sauce. Cocktails (ShipShape for me) were a nice heavy pour. Server was busy so not always as available as we would have preferred - can't fault him for that. Bar must have been busy as well, cocktails and cappucinos with frangelica were slow to be replenished when requested. He forgot my Bernaise sauce until I realized it and reminded him halfway through (didn't really need it- steak would have been great on it's own.) Beautiful ambience, special anniversary dinner at a quiet booth closer to the kitchen than the main front entrance. Will definitely look forward to returning. Expensive - but a nice treat for special occassions.

Enjoyed the bar and dining room ambience. Pricing was high but that was expected. Food and drinks were great other than their specialty Lobster tail preparation. We were sold on it as being “very lightly fried” and as presented was basically Kentucky fried lobster tail. Would have much preferred broiled. We would return but not for that dish.

I was very excited to try this restaurant for my birthday. The food and ambiance were amazing. We will definitely be back for that. The service was not great. We ordered some oysters and caviar to be paired with champagne to start. The server brought the champagne which would have been fine if the rest of the appetizers had come out shortly after. Our table was in view of the seafood and I saw our caviar sit there for 15 mins with three people around it at one point. It took 20 mins to get our cold appetizers. When I asked the server, she gave me no real explanation. While we were waiting a good 20 mins for the appetizers, the server came by multiple times to try and get our entree order. I finally told her we wanted to wait for the appetizers because I wasn’t sure how hungry we would be after and she became very flustered even though she seemed to only have one table besides ourselves. Overall, the restaurant was fantastic, but the service was not great.

Had wonderful lunch of crab cake with Tater tots.

Disappointed that no longer offering 2 or 3 course pre fixe lunch and that you have axed happy hour.

Lots of choices with new reimagined YOLO reopening, Salt 7 and Del Friscos. Think you need to revisit your offerings, as I don’t see the office towers filling with workers anytime soon. Just sayin….

??? What changed ??? For years the Lobster Sea Grill has rated at the top of our list whenever we are in Ft. Lauderdale. But, we ate there last Saturday night with friends and it was OK, but not spot on as it had always been before. We went back on Sunday but after having 2 appetizers, we left and went to a local bar for our dinner. Why ?? We ordered the Tuna Tartare and it was nothing more than chopped up tuna with an avocado puree spread over it. We ordered the escagot and it was somewhat strange. In a sauce, no cheese, with small pastry puffs on top of each and it was just not that good. So off night ??, staffing problems ??, new chefs ?? I truly do not know but it went from our favorite in all of Florida to way down the list.
