They had run out of a few things on the menu. So our top choices were unavailable. Besides that it was a nice place.
Got lobster stuffed lobster.
They charged 90 for the lobster and 15 for the stuffing separately on the check which I thought was stupid.

Went for Mother’s Day dinner. We were seated next to the extremely loud kitchen, but that wasn’t a problem until a fight broke out in the kitchen between the manager and one of the chefs. They were cursing at each other (F-bombs flying) and about 5 kitchen staff had to break up the fight. We were moved to another table closer to the bar. The food was delicious except for the cold mashed potatoes. Service was slow. I expected a different ambiance for what we paid for dinner. I will not return.

I took my wife there for Mothers Day. They sat us in the very back of the place with the kitchen behind us. The noise from the kitchen was not the issue it was the person screaming at the servers that made it impossible to enjoy the meal. I know they were busy but screaming is not professional. On top of that our spinach tasted burnt and could not be eaten. I've been to the Lobster Bar in the past but I will never sit in the back by the kitchen again. I expected more for what I paid ($$$$$$).

I invited my daughter and my wife on Mother's Day for lunch, both my wife and daughter were very happy with their dinners. However, I wasn't, I order a Lobster bisque soup and it wasn't that good, also ordered the 10 oz Fillet Barrel cut to be cooked medium rear and was served well done. In addition, I ordered the Cesar salad with anchovies and it was served with only two (2) paper thin anchovies, very disappointed about that as well. I have always enjoyed eating at your restaurants, however, this time I left very disappointed.

I made a reservation for Mother’s Day Brunch and arrived to find out that, due to last minute issues, there was no brunch. Bummer...onto the regular dinner menu. We ordered the truffle burrata appetizer, but the waiter comes back to tell us they are out (we had the earliest reservation possible - apparently they oversold the night before). I found the prices to be outrageous, but the food was spectacular. The ribeye was marbles beautifully and paired nicely with the white truffle butter. Once we got the bill, the waiter charged us for the appetizer they ran out of and we never got, but happily took it off with no problem. When we left and I spoke with the woman in the front expressing my disappointment with the brunch situation, she said that they still offered the brunch aperol spritz cocktail. We were never told about this. Though the food was superb, I wanted to take my mom out for brunch and would have preferred taking her somewhere that upheld their promises.

Service was excellent. Cool vibes very lively. Appetizer steak tartare and oysters were delicious.

Very upset as the Chilean sea bass was not Chilean sea bass just sea bass which was a huge disappointment. The Whole Chili lobster was definitely not a whole lobster either. Feel like the menu was misleading and we were ripped off.

Maybe be a good place for drinks but overall, not worth it for the entrees. Would not return

We have an explosively great time each time we visit the Lobster Bar. This event was with my mother of 75 years and she was overwhelmed at the ambiance and the quality of food and service. We are from Palm Beach but will keep you on our list of places to eat during our pre concert special events. Thank you

the restaurant is beautiful and elegant, but the food was uy nderwhelming. To be honest, the lobster salad I had at the airport bar was far more flavorful than the one I had at the Lobster Bar and had a lot more lobster in it.

Customer service is consistently excellent. Beverages excellently prepared and served to the customer.
However, as a frequent diners, we see the preparation and plating of the food slipping. The product is good but the presentation and the cooking, especially of fish and shellfish has slipped. Suggestion: Your executive chef must spend more time in the kitchen educating those that prepare and plate your dishes. Your prices demand excellence in both customer service and food.

It was my 50th birthday and I flew from Philadelphia to eat at this restaurant. The entire night felt magical. My waitress was very attentive. The wait staff/servers were at our every beck and call. The FOOD MELTED IN MY MOUTH! Prices were set to the ambiance and setting we were in! I will definitely recommend this restaurant and I will definitely be back. I’m visiting Miami at the end of the summer and I’ll definitely visit that location! I had a blast!!

I am an enormous 'devotee' of LBSG, mostly at Las Olas (over many years), occasionally in SoBe (although that venue is some distance away; I go mostly because we love Bobby Asare). Last week Tuesday (04/16) was not LBSG's 'finest moment': I hosted a table of nine (9) that day. The restaurant was not especially busy; we were there c.12:30 through 14:15, for Lunch. The service was slow, and sloppy. Some of us got our courses together, while others had to wait. Your team was not proactive as usual. I was told there was a staff-shortage that day, which I accepted. And I won't let one bad ('outlier'?) experience alter a strong positive view I've formed of LBSG over many good experiences. But you should be aware, still. Michael.
