Lombard’s Seafood Grille Ratings and Reviews
I was really surprised about this place. The menu seemed like nothing special and the regular fried shrimp/fish and fries were going to be the same old boring things you can get at most places. I ordered the fried shrimp and fries and I don't think I've had a better version. The shrimp were huge and succulent, the breading was flavorful and it was fried just right. I would definitely eat here again.
I had the steak sandwich. While the steak was incredibly tender, the steak was very low on flavor. The other 4 people in my group (they had various bits of sea food) has a similar experiences. Given the price you pay and the fact that they expect you to have a reservation, the food and service should be better. Also, the service was mediocre, If this place wasn't in the heart of Universal Studios, I believe it would have gone out of business long ago. I recommend a different place to eat if you want to have a good vacation meal.
Although we could only get a 3:30 "dinner" reservation, we had a great meal. We were impressed by the daily special offerings and the authenticity of the dishes. Outstanding service from our server, Tony M - a total natural. If we come back to Universal Studios, we'll be back!
The sourdough rolls were hot and tasty. I ordered the Beef medallions and they were slightly overcooked (served medium well when I ordered medium) Very moist and tender though. The portions was fairly small considering it was dinner. I have a small appetite and usually need a to-go box for leftovers but I ate the whole meal. It would NOT have been enough for my husband or any guy.
My daughter had the blackened grouper with Quinoa and she liked it.
Booked for 5pm got a buzzer and told table would be ready in 10 min, 30 min later we checked with reception and they had lost our reservation! Menu is limited, chicken wing starters were cold and stodgy. Entrees steak cooked incorrectly, cold fries and a weird unpalatable potato which my son who eats anything described as plastic tasting ash! During the meal a whole tray of food overturned at a nearbye table and a harassed waitress delivered entrees before the starters were finished and brought the requested water as the meal ended! The manager was very humble and not at all like John Cleese but there was no excuse for cold, poor quality food. Offers of free dessert and coffee or a free meal nxt day were rejected by the kids en masse!
We went for lunch during our trip to Universal Studios. There are many restaurants with table service there, so we went to Lombard's. But our experience was bad. We had to wait for quite a while although we already made a reservation before. Our waiter was not very friendly. We had to call several times to get our drinks refilled. In the end, he still did not refill our child's drink! Our food was not so good either. Fried onions on top of salad are cold and soggy, it seems that they have been left out for quite a while. Ou steak was almost cold and undercooked! After the meal we regret so much for being there. We'll not be there again!
We chose Lombard's because of the reviews and location within Universal during our Christmas Day visit. We were very disappointed that we were seated on the second level banquet space which lacks the ambience of the main level dining area. We were seated there because the restaurant was over booked. Our server, while very nice and apologetic, was simply not good. She had too many tables and it took 15 minutes for our drink orders to be taken and another 15 minutes for them to arrive and our meal orders to be taken. The food was subpar and expensive. I do not recommend this restaurant and will not return when we next visit Universal Studios.
I was thinking this would be the best restaurant in the park. We ended up missing an opportunity to go to a better place and spend less time. I was extremely disappointed in the service, it was very slow (and since the park closed at 7 pm that day, time was a premium). We often had empty drinks and sat frustrated as the tables around us received their bread, drinks and entrees ahead of us even after coming in after us, sometimes way after us. It was very expensive for the service we received, and the food was strikingly similar to the Mythos at the other park, so had to order more exotic dishes to get the variety.
This restaurant is our family favorite for upscale dining but with a casual feel. The food covers all the seafood options you expect, from lobster bisque, fish and chips to catch of the day. The interior is beautiful with a lobby that is comfortable as well as perfect for picture taking with the water effects... but you won't wait for long. Once inside dine with views of the water and if you are lucky you will be seated by the tables surrounding the indoor larger than life aquarium/tank with various species to observe, requesting this view is worth the wait. The service is stellar and the food is also reasonably priced for lunch and dinner. You won't be disappointed.
We ordered the Lobster rolls, not bad for a park restaurant. They were in a regular hot dog bun instead of a lobster roll grilled bun but were still tasty. The roll was served with coleslaw and house-made potato chips. Overall we enjoyed our lunch. We were disappointed the outdoor deck was not open until 12:15, the morning was still cool but the deck wasn't open.
Everyone knows how sub-par theme park food can be, but this food was delicious! My husband he'd the Beef medallions and he said one of the best he has had. My son had the shrimp and loved them. They were huge! Service was excellent too thanks to Justin! All in all a great experience.
The restaurant was a average and a nice location. The food was decent and price was moderate. However the hostess seated us very close to another couple and I mean very close when there were other open tables with more room? Luckily our waiter noticed that our table was terrible and volunteered to move us. We also had reservations and had to wait even though we were the only people waiting and there were open tables.
