We had great experiences and food at the Lobster Bar Sea Grille in Ft Lauderdale and Chops in Atlanta in the past and my wife and I were excited to try this location in Miami Beach. Unfortunately we were very disappointed in the meal. We don’t mind spending a lot of money on a great meal but when you spend over $200 on dinner the food should wow you and you should leave feeling like you had a fantastic memorable dinner. We spent $32 for just one small to medium sized stone crab claw that was just average. We also ordered a lobster Morsel appetizer for $32. There were four large morsels, however, when I cut into each one it was mostly just hollow breading with very little lobster inside. The Caesar salad was ok but the soft cooked egg was overdone and there was no runny yolk when we cut into egg. We shared a whole fish ‘Branzino’ for our main course. The fish was overcooked, lacked flavor and was not light and flaky as Branzino should be. We ordered Profiteroles for dessert. The cream puffs were frozen and most likely were from a bag and not homemade. My wife and I each only had one cocktail which were both very good and our waiter was a nice guy and very pleasant. Other than that, I would not recommend this location as the food is average at best and the prices did not match the quality.

Unfortunately a combination wife’s Birthday and Anniversary event turned into a really bad outcome. Hard to say how it happened, or who was to blame, but it was a disaster. The place is nice, we waited 10 min for our reserved table. We ordered a nice bottle of Cabernet which they also serve by the glass. Over 15 min for a standard bottle to arrive. We ordered, the server had no idea what size fish they had available. Out of both Pompano and Red Snapper — she was clueless. Smallest Red Snapper was 3lbs. Really?? The food never came. We waited an hour and a half after being seated. The food of the others looked great. They all sat down after us. Our food never came. The manager was too busy cutting lobster for others. No one running operations or the kitchen . Our waitress disappeared for 20 min. It was a disaster My wife hand picked the restaurant. Ruined our evening and special events.

One of our favorite South Beach restaurants with the best service and friendly staff. They still offer the Miami Spice menu until the end of November - good choices. We had our usual - crab cakes ($6 upcharge but excellent crabmeat) and lobster bisque - smooth and creamy - to start. Then Artic char (similar to but better than salmon) and surf and turf ($8 upcharge) - lightly fried lobster tail out of the shell and a decent size filet. This time the filet was not as good as in the past but still Ok. Profiteroles for dessert and they gave my wife an extra molten chocolate cake for her birthday. Service was excellent as usual - the manager and assistant manager came by several times to chat and also make sure everything was satisfactory. Will continue to go back.

This is our favorite restaurant for lobster dishes (the other dishes are also very good). We have never had a bad experience at this location and this time was no different. My wife enjoyed the Stone Crabs for an appetizer. We had the Steamed and Cracked Lobster and the Lobster Stuffed Lobster. Both dishes were exquisite and presented very well. Service has always been top notch and our server continued that tradition. We were surprised with a dessert tasting tray (and we highly recommend the coconut fritters, flourless chocolate cake and key lime pie).

I was hugely impressed with the Lobster Bar when I walked in. It is one of the most attractive restaurants in Miami Beach. To a person the staff exuded professionalism and graciousness. Our waitperson was helpful and charming. Alas, the foundation of any restaurant is the food. My dinner was nearly uneatable. I ordered the "daily" fish. I had the misconception that this meant day-boat fresh. What came was grey, starchy and covered with a strange sauce that I guess was supposed to be a distraction from the bad fishy flavor.
I do not make a habit of delivering bad reviews, but my dinner would have been unacceptable at any price point.

We had a party of 15 and the seating was a bit crowded. They did what they thought was the best they could. I know they could have done better as I've been there before. The management is less than attentive and not necessarily accommodating unless you want to pay high fees. The restaurant staff was most polite.

We were on our anniversary long weekend break to Miami Beach. The Brunch here was just perfect! The host and hostess were nice , attentive and helpful, and our waitress was very professional. She did an excellent job looking after us and cleaning up the table nicely after each course. Our water was always filled up. The food was first class and delicious!!! I had lobsters all over the world from Australia to Canada, Boston, Maine, and Rhode Island. The way they prepared it here was perfect in every way! $39 for three course meal with lobster as the star for brunch was a bargain. The portion size for appetizer and entree were unexpected large. We picked the wild mushroom thin crust pizza and Fried calamari for the first course. Then we had a whole stuffed lobster and a Lobster egg Benedict for entrees. We were treated with care as they remembered our special occasion and brought out a surprised double dessert with happy anniversary writing on the plate. The service we received here was impeccable and the food was not to be missed if you are in the area. This exceptional brunch meal made our trip extra special and thank you, Lobster Bar and Sea Grille!!!

Memorable experience. All food came perfectly prepared. Staff was very attentive to patrons. Management staff and waiters made my proposal a remarkable moment. I would recommend and frequent again.
On another note, never got my +1000 pts as advertised. 🤷🏾‍♂️
