Seafood
A British born restaurant rocked up on the shores of the USA to bring diners the ultimate Burger & Lobster experience. Our Bryant Park restaurant is right in the middle of the action in New York City just a stone's throw away from the famous park. Our restaurant serves live, wild Atlantic lobsters that our restaurants receive fresh each day whilst all of our beef is from Nebraska in the USA.

Our menu is packed with food for all to enjoy, which is why we believe we are the best restaurant near Bryant Park NYC. You can try out our originals with 10oz beef burgers or 1.25lb whole lobsters or even our famous lobster rolls. Want to try them all? Don't worry, our B&L combo have you covered with a 6oz burger and 1.25lb lobster on one plate - the best of both worlds! If meat isn't your thing, our B&L Beyond Burger is the one for you and is perfect for vegan diets.

I always go for the original lobster - steamed - for that extra juicy texture! I haven’t been to Burger and Lobster since the pandemic started, and returning last night was such a pleasure! If only I can eat 2 servings. So delicious!

My husband picked this place and he made a great fine. He had the lobster roll and burger, I had the burger and Lobster. We both really enjoyed our meal...even the fries and salad. We really like the atmosphere of this restaurant as well. The prices are reasonable!

Great food and ambiance. Service was very slow which I think was due to the fact our waiter was busy chatting with his co-workers.

Went with my husband and son and we had the lobster roll, a hamburger and the farro salad. The food was actually quite good - better than I expected - and the service was also excellent. What keeps me from giving them 5 stars was the loud rap music that was playing the entire time. Hoping that was only what happened to be playing that particular evening, because the food wasn't good enough to entice me to sit through another hour+ of that.

Everything was fine except the mention of Bryant Park is confusing. You need to emphasize your 43rd orc42 st address. Also, tone down the music at lunchtime. By the way LOBSTER ROLL WAS DELICIOUS.

He made sure that our food was out on time and hot. He was just an overall great server. I hope he gets a raise

Service by Chandler was great and location is great too but that’s it this time. We left still hungry after spending $100 for dinner for two and that bothers us. There’s so may restaurants in that area to choose from where we can be satisfied and full spending the same. We had recommended Burger and Lobster our family that was visiting a few weeks ago and they felt the same. There were 8 in their party. We doesn’t we’ll return which is sad as we always lived it before when the prices were more reasonable for the amount of food.

Have a great lunch during restaurant week. Our server Dominic was great. Friendly and attentive, he even brought over a surprise dessert with a candle when he overheard us wishing our friend a happy birthday.
Food was excellent and cocktails even better.

Came here for restaurant week. The food was excellent. The service was great. However, my friend requested truffle fries instead of regular fries come from the meal, unfortunately the server didn’t acknowledge us about $5 up-charged. Overall, we enjoyed our lunch.

Went for Restaurant Week Lunch. Had never been there before. Appetizer (fried calamari ) was excellent and a full portion. 1/2 lobster (1 1/4 pound) seemed very small- even for that size- but was fresh and tender. Fries were crisp and perfect. Restaurant week menu was good with a fair price. Too pricey of a regular menu for lunch for me!

The restaurant menu was delicious. I look forward to trying other food items. My server was just lovely and her service prompt. My only complaint was the bottle of Pellegrino was $8. I have never paid that much for sparkling water anywhere in NYC. I willd efinitely go again sans sparkling water.

My wife and I visited Burger & Lobster - Bryant Park for the first time over the weekend. We were very disappointed as the food was very mediocre. My wife lobster was very dry and rubbery. My burger was pretty dry as well and the bun was not the best. There was hardly any flavor on either dishes.

Very upsetting on the quality of food served. Our waiter was very nice and professional.
We unfortunately won't return to this location.
