    Last call was at 8PM, waitress did not check in on us until ten minutes before if we wanted to place an order. Asked to see if the kitchen was still open.

    Tried to overcharged us and didn't apologize. Very rude when we were trying to explain that the amount was wrong. Hard to get bartenders attention when it was practically empty and we were sitting AT the bar. Didn't try the food, didn't look appealing. Bathroom floors were wet and sticky?! Music sucked and vibe was trash. Would never go back.

    The place was beautiful and the ambiance was good but there were a few major issues. My friends and I had our jackets on the whole time because it felt like their heat was off. The service wasn’t that good. The food took long (about an hour to come out) and when they asked if we needed anything we were about to speak and they walked away lol. We had three people so they sat us at a high top. The only problem with that is the seats didn’t have a back rest so it wasn’t very comfortable. The floors were sticky. When you arrive they don’t give you a menu or even a QR code. In order to see the menu you need to Google their restaurant and find it on their website lol. We got a brunch tower and it was not worth it. All of it could’ve been made at home. The waffle was good but it didn’t even come with maple syrup. It was pieces of dry waffle with a few blueberries and a side of Nutella. The croquets were okay but I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant for brunch.

    Good Vibe! very limited selection, you come here for the tower and bottomless mimosas. They don't even have coffee with milk - which we found a bit strange, so not a good selection if you are looking for choices.

    Food was basic, as if someone just made it from a hot plate. Floors were so sticky, seating was uncomfortable, nobody available at the coat check so we sat on stools holding our coats and scarves and bags. Our bill for 4 was $275 (tower for 4 and 2 bottomless mimosas) which included an automatic 20% gratuity. Never again…

    I don’t usually tattletale on businesses but this experience was so disappointing I had to speak up . For starters my reservation was at 9 and I was not seated until 930 I was there celebrating three birthdays a group of seven when we were finally sat in our booth the table was filthy food all over the table sticky not wiped down or set. After we were seated we waited 25 minutes before anyone even came to greet us at our table or take a drink order or clean the table. After waiting an hour we ordered our food and drinks all at once our food arrived 35 minutes later before we even got our drinks. When I asked for a manager he came by apologised and offered us free shots we did not want shots ! we just wanted our drinks and the rest of our food. Once our drinks Arrived my friend order to 30 martini and it was a Margarita mix accidentally poured in a martini glass with three olives . At this point we just had a laugh it was so embarrassing . I will never go back there Very disappointing birthday celebration terrible experience

    Do not go here. The service is terrible and because large parties have an auto gratuity they don’t care about your table knowing they’ll get a $140 tip anyways. Drinks were wrong and took 45 minutes to get one each time, food was undercooked, service was awful and the staff kept saying there was “nothing they could do” despite the table next to us getting much better service. I had my birthday here and going to Lobby literally ruined my day. Not to mention the fact that at 9pm we were told ingredients to make cocktails we just had a round of before were no longer available. Just horrific all around.

    Poor service. Waited forever for a plate of sliders, then the cook (not the manager) came out to apologize. He was clearly intoxicated - pretty embarrassing attempt to explain that the kitchen was backed up (now we could see why). Then offered free calamari? Really? How about just treating your guests better after you've messed up.

    I found Lobby on TikTok and always wanted to go. I decided to celebrate at this venue for my birthday and boy was I surprised. First of off I had no idea they had a live DJ. I wasn’t a big fan of the Sunday Brunch menu (12:30pm-5pm) if it were up to me I would want the Tuesday-Saturday food options as those options were wayyyyyy better. Anyway had the bottomless mimosa’s which were great and the Bunch for 2 tower. I only liked the fruits and waffles (I’m a picky eater) but they gave me a croissant with ham which was ok. Instead of staying for 2 hours like I planned we ended up staying for 6 hrs bc we had sooooooooooooo much fun. Me and my friends all danced the day away. We never had that much fun in a loooooong time. And they played all the music we liked and was current. It’s definitely a young people spot and the DJ understood the assignment. Oh and the bartender gave me a signature blue drink that wasn’t on the menu that tasted reallyyyyy good. We all promise to come back on a Friday night and again on a Sunday night!

    Service was horrible, staff doesn’t care about you at all, seated us and forgot about us for 45 minutes, no menu given, we were told they were having technical difficulties so we couldn’t order food? We were all starving and annoyed. Music was good but would never go back because of the horrible service, gave us the wrong drinks too and when we asked for the correct ones, we were told they were no longer making specialty cocktails. Seriously the worst experience I’ve ever had. Pretty place but that’s about it. Stay away if you can.

    The vibe was good however the food was terrible. I ordered a seafood marinara and it came out cold. I asked for it to be warmed up and I did not get it back. The kitchen was then backed up and no one said nothing until we started calling every waiter as our waiter was taking long. The manager gave us guacamole and chips which the guacamole was not good neither I ordered tacos and it was really oily. I didn’t eat it at all. I like the vibe but the food is really terrible. It could have been better.

    Mimosas are very weak, they are understaffed so you gotta wait like an hour to even get another round. Rude staff and terrible customer service. The food was ok. Receipts were wrong overall 1/10. Literally anywhere else is better

    We went for brunch and we were the first group so service was great however, the food was quite awful. No flavour and lacked salt and the egg tasted under cooked. The tower was not worth it as they could have made it a bit more extravagant for $160 with more options In my opinion. They really need to fix the floor as it is like walking in ice. Even the employees were falling. I would only suggest coming for the drinks.

    Going to lobby was a waste of time and money. I went there to celebrate my birthday and they ruined my mood since they were really accommodating with the seating arrangements. As per the host they were seating guests as per the number of reservations. We were 6 and got to sit in the middle of the restaurant but 5 people seating on the boots doesn’t make sense either. Even the food and drinks weren’t all that great nor did they have a lot options. I wouldn’t go there again or recommend it to any of my friends.

    Had a great time at Lobby with my girl friends, we went for their Sunday brunch and had the bottomless mimosas and brunch towers. Food and drinks where good however our server was also serving a party of 16 which meant that we weren’t getting our mimosas served as often as we would’ve liked. Maybe they could’ve designated one server for the larger party so that we could’ve still had consistent service? Other than that the music and atmosphere was great, I would recommend their Sunday brunch :)

    Brunch platter $160 for the a very average set, along with a very long wait for the food and drinks. Service was nonexistent, and seemed to be operating understaffed. Could not believe I came myself, would not recommended to anybody.

    awful. terrible service - the waitress had an attitude and her energy seemed off. we were the second group to be seated when they opened at 12pm and multiple groups who ordered the same thing got their food before us. when i tried to ask the waitress about this she spoke over me and tried to shut me up stating that it was on the way. 15 minutes later other tables are still getting their food before us. when my pasta dish finally came out it was cold. overall bad experience. i will say that the drinks were amazing though.

    They need to add more separate brunch food items other than the massive towers. Although an amazing idea. If you are Ins a let hungry it’s just too much. Especially for the price of it. The addition of the breakfast tacos is cute. But not filling enough. So would love to see some the tower menu items available for individual purchase. The bottomless mimosa option is incredible and the service was fantastic. As well as the entire vibe of the space. Will return again but wit a larger group of the food offerings don’t change.
