The food was great. Fun place, but at least for Saturday brunch it was CRAZY loud. There was a big group next to us, and we could barely hear. Hopefully a one-off experience.

We went on Thursday and were worried that it may be really busy because of the holiday, however it was not. Our waitress was also the bar tender and the only waitress on duty, however she was very attentive and gave great options for the meals. The food was amazing and feeling. My friend got the roasted tomato and pesto sandwich on ciabatta bread. She loved it. I had the macroni and cheese and made it veg-head. It was DELICIOUS! I love this place and will keep bringing people here.

My friends were in town from out of state and they LOVED Lobby. The bottomless mimosas are great and the food is even better. I will continue to bring all my visitors here because the atmosphere, food and drinks are unparalleled in downtown.

Food was good, and that was the only good thing about the experience. It took us 30 minutes from the time we arrived before we got our drinks. We did not get a chance to order happy hour appetizers before our main courses arrived because they took 45min to get us the happy hour menus and another 15 minutes to come and take our orders. The final bills had pricing that was different from the menus, and it was not corrected even after we commented about it, even though the server said they'd "take care of it". Pretty much the worst customer service I've ever gotten anywhere. The only reason this is 2 stars and not 1 is that I've been here twice before and while service has never been excellent, food has always been good.

We have come here several times for brunch, but after this visit i'm not in a hurry to go back. The service is ridiculously slow, and the food is only ok, but a bit overpriced. The "smoked salmon" Benedict is not smoked like I am used to being from New England, but cooked, and the potatoes were cold upon arrival. The service was slow, and our waitress took one person's drink order than disappeared for another 20 minutes. We all sat with empty waters and drinks several times and had to flag her down for everything. I had a gift card I used on this visit, and also showed the Yelp check in for 10% off. I was told we probably couldn't use both, but she never came back and confirmed what the answer was, before we cashed out and she did not honor the 10% off. This place is mostly known for their mimosa towers, but if you have less than 6 people, I could recommend many other places for a decent, reasonably priced brunch.

I love the way this restaurant looks and great happy hour but that isn't enough to give The Lobby a high rating. It took 15 minutes for the bartender/server to come take our drink order and another 15 minutes when we were checking out after giving our payment. We were there for a little over an hour and only had appetizers and one drink each. I keep giving this place a chance but no after this experience.

Overall, this is a fun place for brunch. They are known for their bottomless mimosas and it's a very energetic atmosphere. We had a group of 7 and were sat quickly with our reservation and our service was great. The food left much to be desired. The menu looked awesome but they just could not deliver on the food end of things. Most of us had our food served cold and it just missed the mark. Too bad, really.

Some of us enjoyed the food, others in the party thought it was mediocre. Service was pretty poor, we only got about 1/2 of our drinks, literally spent an extra hour there waiting for our ck. Not excited to return even though it is a cute place.

Made a reservation weeks in advance and requested patio seating. We got attitude at the door about 100% of our party not being there to be seated (we had 75% which is what their policy states). Got seated inside - not on the patio as requested. It was probably 85 degrees inside by the windows. We were sweating throughout the entire brunch despite asking about AC, to which the waitress responded "I don't know if they have any". She did not ask to see if they did even though we asked. Food order was wrong - Bacon cheeseburger somehow turned into a BLT, but the BLT was still good. Bottomless mimosa service was super slow and our tower was taken away before we had even requested our checks. I'd like to note that I have had their bottomless mimosa brunch many times on the patio, and have never had a waitress tell us that they can only fill it half way, or taken the towers away before we'd left... and we've been far more intoxicated than this time. If this were my first experience at The Lobby I would never go back. However knowing how enjoyable the patio is, and this being the first time we've received poor service overall - I would simply recommend patio seating only. And tell your waitress you'll tip her 100% if she keeps the mimosas coming.

Checked out The Lobby on a Friday night recently. Opted to sit in the courtyard as it was a) nice out although threatening rain and b) no one was indoors!
Our waiter Jordan was a study in efficiency. He easily handled 5 tables solo with congeniality and professionalism.
We were very impressed with our two entrees of cheesy steak and pork belly. Both came in at under $20 which would have easily gone higher elsewhere. The steak was cooked as specified and very flavorful. The cheese sauce was too much like Velveeta. The seared pork belly had just the right amount of fat. The mustard sauce was a perfect accompaniment. Loved the crispy Brussels leaves. Both dishes cane with chunky mashed red potatoes with some skin left which is the best.
Nice beer selection and generous wine pours.
It's a gem in an otherwise gritty part of town.

The Lobby has a high-energy atmosphere. Bottomless mimosas that come in very large wine glasses (if you have a party of 5+ you can get the Mimosa Tower!). The courtyard area looks nice, it was too cold to dine outside, but it could be a great spot for brunch and to catch up with friends.

Weird to see multiple tables of two at booths for four- that are a little more intimate, but two top tables wide open. Outside that....drinks were great. Appetizers - brussel sprouts and croquets were a hit and the meals were delicious.

I really enjoyed our brunch there. I wish I could have tried more food. I had the Cubano benedict and it was delicious. I also tried the Heuvos Burrito, it was good, but something was too sweet. It may have been in the burrito or the green chile, we couldn't tell. The food was good, It was not as great as I hoped. It was so loud there that my girlfriends and I had a hard time talking to each other. I will be back though to try other options on the menu. They take reservations which is a very big plus in my book.
