Servers were very polite and quick with the food, the food was average, but definitely recommend the bacon oyster sliders!
The food was very good but the lobster roll at 34$ was very small. Fun place.
Chef’s Lobster Salad is outstanding. All of my favorite combinations: lobster, asparagus, avocado and tomatoes. Nice outdoor space, heated lamps, good service.
Food, hospitality and service was great. Can’t wait to go back again.
Best lobster Mac...I will be back
Amazing Food! Whole lobster was outstanding. Wait staff very friendly
Always just great.
First time here and can't walt to go back. The lobster roll was absolutely fantastic and delicious and French fries perfectly golden. It is a very casual establishment with very limited seating but it is a great little place with its own little vibe.
A great little find in a bustling city. Fantastic food, highly recommended.
Lobster rolls and grilled lobster were delicious!
Amazing experience. The food was amazing and Jean (our server) was friendly, funny and helpful. She gave us suggestions and was knowledgeable about the menu. Will definitely return!
We made reservation with open table, then checked in via open table 2 days later. When we arrived the hostess said that, since we did not answer her call, she had canceled our reservation. She wasn't terribly nice about it either.
The meal was absolutely amazing, the service was quick and polite
Great except for front of house who ignored our booking for a table and not the bar
Great seafood; lively ambiance, definitely one of NY’s best seafood bars!
We love this place
I had rose and the lobster roll, it came with fries. Everything tasted delightful :)
The food was just okay. The staff was rude and not approachable. The lobster bisque and raw clams were good but the place lacks selection. I had the broiled lobster and they basically poured a can of breadcrumbs on top.
Delicious food. We ate at bar and super friendly and great service
Great friendly staff and delicious food in a fun setting
The lobster roll Was amazing!
The food here is amazing everytime! You can’t fit wrong with anything you order !
Lobster ravioli, fried pickles, and oyster selections are exceptional. Improved service would yield a higher rating.
Unique food in the lobster poutine. Delicious! Great cider from Brittany, France to go with it! Love the atmosphere.
Overall always a great experience, the food is always good the service amazing. You couldn’t ask for anything else.
The fried calamari are amazing and the carb and artichoke dip all must try.
By far one of the best places we've ever dined at in NYC. The food was spectacular! Lobster Mac and Cheese was one of the best I've tasted, with ample amounts of lobster. The Mussels and Fries (with the horseradish sauce) were delicious and decadent. The oysters were fresh and tasty -- we had a variety on this particular trip, but these were hard to beat.
Love this place!
Over priced for the food. We expected more for the expense.
Fanstatic food and friendly staff! Gotta try the Lobster Roll
First time at Ed's Lobster and we enjoyed the food, ambience and service. We'll definitely go back again.
Cocktails were pre made and not particularly good. Couldn’t taste alcohol. Food was just average
On of the best Lobster Rolls I have ever had, Great service and Friendly staff
This place is amazing!
Ed's has become a NOLITA landmark, even though it's long and think, it is still very inviting. We try to eat there every time we are in New York. Even if you are allergic to crustaceans as I am, there are plenty of choices on the menu. The service is always friendly and efficient, and the wine list is adequate
I loved the lobster poutines and lobster chowder. Seating is a bit cramped but after all it is NYC.
So so good! So much lobster. My daughter had the wings and they were dry but you don’t go there for the wings. Spicy margarita was delicious. Only negative is the bathroom is pretty gross.
The servers were friendly and made great recommendations.
My friend and I ordered to share, the lobster roll with extra crispy fries, scallops (on a bed of creamy mash) and the spicy charred broccoli. A great bottle of Sancerre was a perfect pairing. The blueberry creme brûlée was a fantastic ending.
The food was amazing! We will definitely return.
Lobster was good. Caesar salad was really bad... Just a pile of lettuce and some kind of very non-caesar like dressing, with very little parmeasn, all for $14.00. What a ripe!
I think we may have been happier sitting at the counter rather than stuck in the back between the coat rack and the passage way to the restroom and kitchen. Our party of 3 tried the lobster roll, lobster ravioli and the lobster Mac and cheese. We all three thought our dishes were mediocre. Sorry to say, that we would not recommend this restaurant.
Quick and friendly service. We had the lobster roll, lobster mac and cheese and clam chowder. All was great portion size and tasty food.
