The service and food was very very bad. Sat at our table and order once we sat down since we reviewed the menu before getting there. We noticed that there were just 4 table being used at the time. It took over one hour to receive our meal. the fish was very dried and the pork was over cooked and tasted like they dropped it in dirt.

Great somewhat expensive place right across from our Hilton Resort. Great food but average outdoor ambiance.

The food in the place was decent. I don't remember anything that was outstanding, but I do remember that it wasn't bad...lol. The server did a good job and was attentive to my party. We enjoyed the vibe and the outdoor dining experience. Good spot.

We watched The Lobby as it was under construction a few years back. I always liked the ambiance from the outside, so on our first trip back to Aruba post Covid, I knew we had to go. We were given the option of outside or inside dining and we chose inside for the air conditioning. The tables are gorgeous, carved out of wood and the bar is also beautiful. We were immediately served and enjoyed a slightly expensive but delicious apricot cosmo. The menu is quite extensive offers something for everyone. Appetizer of tuna tatake was almost too pretty to eat and equally delicious. We were both in the mood for a burger, and they came out perfectly done with really hot french fries. I’d like to go back to try the other interesting items on their menu. Our server was very attentive and the manager came over several times to check on us. Bathrooms were very clean. Other than the price of my Cosmo and their specialty drinks, we felt their menu was reasonably priced. We will definitely go back and we highly recommend!

If you are vegetarian, look elsewhere for a more varied menu. I had appetizers for dinner. They were good, but I should have studied the menu beforehand.

The food was outstanding! Loved the lobster croquets and the catch of the day was divine. The ribs fell off the bone. Service was great but maybe the music was a little too dance clubish.

In a busy area and there was an outdoor market at the time we visited - so that was a nice surprise. We sat on the patio enjoyed the vibes (music & service), the scene (people watching), and the decor of the restaurant. Every single thing we ate rocked!!! Tuna steak, stuffed mushroom app, the vegan pasta, the grouper, and the potato bacon soup were all nothing short of 10/10. Sangria also rocked!

Service was great! Kids meals are a complete rip off for what is served aka $12 Mac and Cheese is a small bowl of pasta with watery sauce. The small slider with fries is also $12. Other places in Aruba to try for sure.

We spent a week in Aruba and tried all the hot spots. The Lobby was our first dinner and was by far our favorite! The food was great tasting and presented beautifully. The drinks were great and actually had alcohol in them unlike some other restaurants we ate at. Our server was very attentive and polite. Even the manager came to our table to see if everything was good. Personal touch is always appreciated. The atmosphere was great and there are things to do in the area afterwards. We cannot wait to go back to the Lobby if we are in Aruba again. If you are not sure where to go , trust me you will not be disappointed with the Lobby. We highly recommend this place and think you will love it!

Two of us ordered fish, the Bronzino and the fish of the day, Mahi. The portions of fish were very small. The fish dinners were prepared very good, we just left hungry. My kids ordered the kids tenderloin and smoked ribs. Both enjoyed their meal. Unfortunately, we were charged $6 for one of my kids to switch their side from fries to mashed. While the food was very good, due to the portion size and the $6 to switch potatoes, I doubt Lobby will be on our list on our next visit to Aruba.

The food was quite good and the service was good as well. The music that was played was horrible. Who goes to a nice expensive restaurant and wants to listen to the awful music you’d hear in a gym? Maybe that works for the late night crowd but certainly not for the dinner crowd. That might be one reason the restaurant was so empty while competing restaurants were packed.

Our food was fantastic. Orlando our server was knowledgeable, and attentive. I had the Seabass and my husband had lobster risotto. Best ever! Pork belly for the appetizer. Presentation of the food was beautiful. Great wine list. Outdoor dining was a great option. Easy to get to. Wonderful, attentive staff.

Was traveling to Aruba and it was a long wait plus the food took forever and it wasn’t hot. Plus other patrons were served before me and I seat prior to them. I didn’t have an enjoyable experience.

The food, service, and overall experience was extremely poor. I will never come back here. Waste of a night. The food was cold and lacked flavor but was extremely overpriced. I didn’t enjoy anything throughout the meal, and was hoping to enjoy at least dessert however they refused to serve us dessert at 9:00 when the restaurant was closing at 10:00pm without giving us a warning. Overall we had a poor experience and this was after the fact that they messed up our reservation twice.
