Second time there and very good however; a tad pricey for portions… $24 for half dozen oysters as an example. Still enjoyed though.

service took forever. drinks took a long time to arrive. appetizer took even longer. the chilled shrimp tasted fishy and not fresh. the burgers were both extremely undercooked— barely medium rare and dropped so much blood on the plate, it was gross. my wife sent hers back. took forever for server to offer us a second round of drinks

We had a fantastic lunch at Yo Lobster! We were doing low carb so we forego the much raved about Lobster rolls. We ordered the Boss Chopped Salad and the Chopped Louie Salad with Lobster and both were excellent! The seafood was fresh and delicious! The champagne vinaigrette was perfect! It was nice dining on the patio...can’t wait to try the rest of the menu!

The service was good. The wine was good. The lobster roll was embarrassing with maybe 2 oz of lobster fried into hard knots. The roll was dry. The slaw was tasteless. For $31.00? That’s what I call a really long profit item. I won’t go back.

Also tried the Crudo and was excellent!

As always the food was delicious. They were short staffed today with only 2 servers to cover both rooms so a little sporadic service though the 2 of them worked well in tandem to cover all tables.

I think the prices are high, taking advantage of HP location. East Hampton in Snyder Plaza has a very good Lobster roll for $10 less than yours

Portion of lobster for the price was ridiculous. Service was not good, no refills, etc. Definitely not up to East Coast lobster standards.

Three of us ate. Food was poor at best. Fish and Chips some of the worst I have had in Dallas and definitely the most expensive. You can get better quality in any Irish bar in town. Lobster roll was nothing special. I had the fish and it was just pure rubber. The green beans and the french fries (hard to screw up french fries) were the best part of the meal. Overall I am happy to pay for quality but not for bad food with certainly not go back.

Horrible service.
Understaffed in all areas, including bar.
No cutlery on table, had to request. Overpriced for mediocrity.
Disappointing experience!

Bar service was slow but our food service was fine. Don't be surprised by the high cost of the meal for such a casual place. ($200+ for two folks - apps, lobster rolls, one desert, three cocktails and coffee)

We will be back because the food is good.

Great Mother’s Day Lunch. Food and Service was excellent. Connecticut Lobster Roll was the Bomb and the Key Lime Pie was incredible. The place was packed. I suggest reservations. We got there 10 mins early and were seated exactly on time

Cute place but disappointed with the amount of lobster on the Lobster eggs Benedict. Was expecting a lot more than two bites of lobster for the high price. Especially since it’s a lobster restaurant. The concept is great and the place is happy and fun. It was recommended by a few friends who had a great experience. We will go back but really hope for a better portion of lobster on the Benedict next time.

Our food never came. We waited 45 minutes after ordering and finally asked the waitress for an update. Other parties were being seated after us and served very quickly.

The waitress never came back to the table, so we finally decided to leave. (Left cash on the table for our drinks) It was as if we were invisible.
