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.

    The burger was so juicy and flavorful and not so large that you felt like you needed to take it home. The fries were amazing. Just the right amount of crunch. The chocolate mousse was a little dense but hardly a deal breaker and the staff was pleasant and not overly attentive. I hate when they come by every five minutes! Overall a wonderful experience!

    The place has lots of lobster food, so if you think to eat meat burgers, then the choice would not be as big, but definitely it is worth a try :)

    The food was cold and the lobster barely had any meat. The burger was soggy. I ordered a roll to go and it took a while for them to give it to me. Wait staff was friendly and got the orders perfectly.

    Food was mediocre at best - lobster was weak and tiny, burgers were overly rare and mushy. Service was fine- BUT I am giving this a 2-star because the entire restaurant failed to acknowledge a celebration. we came to celebrate my son’s 9th birthday, and told them on the reservation, when we arrived with the hostess… - when desert arrived they threw it on the table. When I complained there was no candle or acknowledgement of his birthday- they said they have no candles. They could have still said happy birthday or come up with something different or let me know before ordering dessert so we could go somewhere that would have acknowledged. Very disappointed. They don’t care about their customers. Just want to run it like a mill. Never coming back.

    Pretty good value- love that they include a salad with the entree and decent choices for all level of palates; my daughter is a picky eater! Also if you arrive before six, a good selection of their cocktails and appetizers are discounted, which our server pointed out.

    I’ve been to B&L many times and obviously enjoy it greatly. This trip I brought visiting family and just to begin the service was just off. We ordered our drinks straight off and didn’t received them until after we received our food and a reminder to our server. Two of us ordered the Beast Burger MR and received them more medium to Medium well and again our server was nowhere to be found. For a possible temperture correction. The burgers were still yummy but obviously disappointing considering they were not cook to our liking and not an inexpensive dish. Sadly as yummy as the meal was it left a bad taste in my mouth in bring newbies there again.

    The music in a restaurant was little too loud for a decent conversation to go on in my opinion should lower the music so people can enjoy the food and also conversation. Food was delicious lobsters were really good the classic hamburgers was good, French fries look like straight out of a bag not home cut would have been better if they actually take the time to cut the fries instead of pulling them out of a bag. Overall I would recommend it.

    So disappointing!!! We certainly will NOT return here! The waiter was disgustingly rude, a nasty attitude for no apparent reason other than his own issues! The lobster rolls were inedible, more like they were running out of lobster and decided to give us minced lobster on the rolls. It was so shocking since we have supported this restaurant chain and especially this location for a while and frequently. They ruined the time. We did not finished what we ordered, we went elsewhere.
