We arrived at the restaurant and a waiter came to lookup our reservation and the the host jumped in and it seems very disorganized. The host asked the waiter which table and the waiter responded "I don't care, it's whatever to me" which I found rude and disrespectful. As we walked to our table I asked the waiter for a booth and he sat us there and thankfully it belonged to a very nice waitress. Incredibly attentive, caring and funny too. The food and drinks were superb so no issues there. My wife loved it as much as I did. We will dine here again for sure.

We think this is the best restaurant in Miami Beach. We have eaten at all the top rated restaurants in South Beach and Mid-Beach for several years. Some are world class, but Lobster Bar Sea Grille is a class above them all. The service is extremely charming friendly and accommodating, The menu is perfect for South Florida tourists with fresh seafood, not all local but all exquisitely fresh. Happy hour oysters ($2) (ask for smallest) are tiny and perfect and the crab cakes (also happy hour cheap $14) are the best anywhere, just crab but with a delightfully delicate lemony hint of mustard butter sauce. Start with happy hour in the bar or lounge and then move to the dining room for main courses. Whole grilled fish boned table side include snappers, sole and real Branzino. Other places in town offer them, but less good for more money. Various lobster dishes, some shelled table side, are beautifully prepared and remarkably reasonable for Maine lobster. They have steaks too, but why? The grilled asparagus side (plenty for two) is to die for! (Avoid the clumped leaden pasta Lobster Americaine !) Best wine list in town for seafood with reasonable prices and great French and Italian choices by the bottle or glass including Chablis, Sancerre, Pinot Grigio and N.Z. Sauvignon blanc. Top French restaurant quality creme brulee.

Our favorite restaurant on Miami Beach. Consistently great food and service. Bobby always welcomes customers with a friendly handshake and smile. The staff at Lobster Bar make you feel how it was meant to be when dining out. My wife and I took our son there - he was visiting from another state - and our whole experience was amazing. Starting with happy hour at the bar and through dinner at our table, everything was perfect.

One of my favorites always, Lobster Bar Sea Grille in Miami Beach, I go there often, lunch, dinner, brunch, happy hour, never disappointed. Today I went for brunch with some friends that had never been there on Sundays for brunch, I love the 3 course menu for $ 39, you have many choices and all is really good you can add to that the bottomless drink option for $ 22, they call it endless which is more sophisticated, but, for $ 22 you can have different wines or Mimosa or Bellini, the great part is that you can also switch during your meal, let’s say you want to start with Prosecco and then change to Cabernet, you can do that.
Now, talking about the food, we started with the Thin Tartes, the Smoked Salmon and the Wild Mushroom, both great, I always and up eating these, next time I need to try something else ;-) then we had the Buttery Lobster Bun, the Lobster Benedict and the Maryland Crab Cake Benedict, what can I say, all really great and, I love the Potato Tots too, so after that, to finish our lovely brunch we had the Signature Tropical Pavlova which I love and the Key Lime Bar. What can I say, you can never go wrong @lobsterbarmiami

Excellent. Entire staff always makes us feel welcome. Great Happy Hour now extended until 8pm. They always have some sort of special pricing on different items. Food is high quality, very fresh and well prepared. We had both steak and seafood. They brought a dessert for the table gratis when they heard it was a birthday celebration. Only suggestion: a better quality house red wine, we did not care for the one cab offered. No problem with the cocktails or other wines.

The worst $300 meal we have had. The stone crab had been frozen because the meat stuck to the shell when we tried to eat it, the lobster was stringy and mushy in places each indicated it had been frozen as well. The spinach side dish was cold when delivered to our table. The kitchen help was on their phones and did not appear to be working. Beautiful restaurant and the table help that cleaned the table seemed to be the only ones with a work ethic. Sad the food is so poor.

Excellence all around! The total experience was superb, from the moment we walked in, to the moment we left. The host immediately recognised our reservation, then proceeded to sit us in a prime location. The manager came out personally to answer questions about the wine selection. The food was amazing and dessert was heavenly! They even brought out a little birthday surprise for my fiancée. We have been to quite a few restaurants together and for the most part, the service is what we pay most attention to. How we are treated tends to stick in our minds more than the food itself. What amazed us so much was how we were treated so well here. Everyone we encountered was kind, courteous & happy to help. This was our first trip to Miami Beach, but not our last. And we will certainly be dining here again.

Save up for a splurge here and you won’t be disappointed. We shared all of our dishes and it was just right. We started with the lobster bites, and Caesar salad followed by 3 stone crab legs. Everything was taken care of just when you needed it. Elegant atmosphere.

It was our 2nd time at Lobster Bar. Our server Tom was excellent -- attentive but not intrusive. We never felt like we waited too long for anything. The Lobster Tail was generously sized and cooked to perfection. The broccolini and asparagus were delicious. The escargot were large and tasty, but I found the oil that they were sitting in to be a bit heavy. The Achilles Heel cocktail is perfectly balanced. We'll be back.

I was in Miami celebrating my brother's Birthdays and decided to treat them to dinner. I'm so glad I chose this location. Everything from the service, food and staff was nothing less than amazing!! My brothers could not stop talking about how much they enjoyed it. This place definitely set the bar for other restaurants to follow. This will be a go to spot the next time I'm in Miami.
