My birthday celebration at Lobster Bar Sea Grille was excellent. The lobster stuffed with lobster was the best and served hot. Service by Tommy and Luis was perfect. Everything arrived at appropriate times without being rushed. Extra attention from Assistant Manager Sean Nero including extra pavlova dessert and limoncello was greatly appreciated. I told him that he renewed my confidence in Buckhead Restaurants. While I had only been to this restaurant once before for lunch, I had been to their affiliated restaurants in Boca Raton a total of ten times. My last two times at Chops Lobster Bar in Boca had very rushed service with courses coming on top of each other with some food served only warm. Service could not have been better at Lobster Bar Sea Grille. Thank you for a very pleasant birthday celebration. You made up for the earlier one!

What a find in Fort Lauderdale! Beautiful interior with a good energy and fun vibe. Our server, Pablo was a gem-attentive and helpful without being overbearing. Menu was extensive with tons of great options. We started with the grilled octopus appetizer which was fresh and delicious. The signature lobster tail was huge and amazing. Don't be put off by the flash fried preparation. It was light and not overwhelmed by coating. The bone in rib eye was huge and perfectly prepared. Homemade ice cream was heavenly. Current promotion offers 50% off wine bottles on Monday and Tuesday. A total home run. Make a reservation tonight-you won't be disappointed.

The food is beautifully prepared from appetizers to dessert. The sommelier was extremely knowledgeable. The only and I do mean only, criticism is that the vaulted, tile ceilings make the noise level difficult to carry on a normal conversation.

This restaurant has always been one of the best in fort lauderdale,i just think the issue here will be price point.It seems every time we go in it gets more expensive every time.\nOur bill was 692.00 with no drinkers at the table just 8 people.\nThis will be the demise to this place going forward especially after seeing whats going on with all the places closing on las olas blvd.\nThey refused my 10% discount card saying it was not accepted anymore which i thought was strange.\n\ni hope they survive and correct the pricing issues

This was my second visit and I don't think we will be back. We brought friends visiting from out of town because the restaurant has a cool vibe-feels like you are in NYC but it was the food was really disappointing. We all left feeling very ripped off. The 'Whole Fish Experience' is a complete rip-off...many of the guys in our party left hungry. They are so many great restaurants to choose from in FLL there is no need to have a bad experience here.

We usually love this restaurant. My lobster tail came rare and they brought out a fully cooked tail about ten minutes later. The main courses were served at different times. The Dover Sole and Bronzino were excellent. I asked for extra melted butter three times before it arrived. They treated me to my drink, but I would have expected them to comp my lobster tail! Our server seemed disinterested in her job, and the service used to be outstanding!

Food was excellent. Service was poor. It started when the we ordered a specific wine and the waiter brought the next year's vintage. In fact, the wine never even showed up at all. We had to eventually remind him to bring it after it was obvious that he had forgotten. \n\nA server should always show you the wine before it is opened so we can verify that it is what we had ordered. He did not We would not have ordered that vintage but it was too late. They offered to replace it but we didn't want to waste it. \n\nOther serving issues. We asked for a glass of ice for the water and it never came. I had to eventually ask the manager for the ice. Further, my friend's appetizer was forgotten. We asked the manager for it. He finally received his appetizer after everyone else had finished theirs. \n\nThe entrees were excellent. The manager sent over some free desserts which was nice of him. We ate them and the waiter disappeared again and we waited nearly a half hour for the bill. We couldn't figure out if the entire meal was being comped (it really should have) or his just forgot. We finally had to ask someone to go and find him. One of my friends had a 5:45 am flight and it was now 10:30 pm. \n\nIn the end, the food was excellent and the Service was really troubling. We have eaten there many times and this was the first time we had ever encountered an issue. It was a weeknight and the restaurant was not busy. \n\nThe waiter was very pleasant but there were obviously lots of Service issues.

My husband and I have been here before and loved the food. However, this time everything went wrong (except for the drinks we had at the bar). The waiter took about 20 minutes to come by and we got our bread after asking 3 times (30 minutes after we were seated). I have eaten Cesear salad many times before but never with a runny egg sitting on top of it. I was utterly disgusted by this. Then when I went to put pepper on the next salad that came, they had to look for 3 pepper mills because the one on our table and 2 others were completely empty. The dinner came not as we had ordered - we wanted the whole fish and they were supposed to fillet it for us. They had served us the fish already filleted. It was room temperature and rare. The side we ordered came 15 minutes later. By then we refused it and asked for the check. The waiter was not at all helpful. In fact, when I told the waiter that I was not happy after the salad problem, he said 'sorry'. Didn't even ask why. I will never go back to this restaurant again.

Hostess was not very friendly and did not place us in a nice table even though the restaurant was empty. She sat us right buy the busy entrance door and did not seem to care if we liked the table. We also had reservations since it was Valentine's Day. She was not welcoming or hospitable at all. Our server was nicer but took a lot of time to clear our plates. He never offered us bread, so we had to ask for it ourselves. The food is top notch, but I feel the service could be a lot better for this restaurant's price points. Bar gave generous pours. Not terribly impressed. I hope they improve the service as they have great food and decor.

We will never go to Lobster Bar and Grill again. Unfortunately we are locals who live in Ft. Lauderdale, not tourists. And therefore likely to visit the restaurant regularly. This was not our first visit and we were looking forward for a third time. I had a reservation from OpenTable. The hostess showed us a table in the back of the restaurant, (passing two booths) and where we had sat before, which is the last table before the kitchen, noisy and busy. I told her that was unacceptable. She said she then had to check with the other hostess which meant a return trip to the front of the restaurant. She returned to tell us that the booths had been reserved (we had a reservation too! ) and showed us to a large booth on the other side of the door to the kitchen. Our whole evening was one of constant motion as waitstaff came and went carrying drinks and trays and wheeling serving tables. So Lobster Bar and Grill, train your hostesses better, remember the people who could be loyal to your restaurant and do not tell your customers that other people have reservations when the person in front of you had one as well!!

This was my third time here. My first two times there were a decent experience however my last one not so much. Our server was very nice until the end when we gave her cash for the bill and she never came back with our change. She just assumed that she would get a 30% tip. We had to track down the bus boy who is helping her to get a change. I was planning on giving her at least 20%. It wasn't her decision what her tip was going to be. Stupid me still gave her a 20% tip but only because I didn't want the bus staff to be penalized as well. \nOur food was good but not sure it was worth the price. Probably won't be returning here.

I have been a frequent diner at this restaurant since it opened. During the week and in the off-season it is very good, but during the season the kitchen is extremely inconsistent. On this occasion, the waiter was extremely rude and inattentive. They served stone crabs that had either been frozen or were sitting in water as you could squeeze water out of the tough meat. The claws originally came out poorly cracked, and when I showed the waiter, he offered a crab cracker used for king crab. Anyone who knows stone crabs knows they can't be hand cracked with a cracker. They took the claws and proceeded to destroy them with a kitchen mallet. Completely unacceptable. The remainder of the meal was mediocre at best, and almost everything came out wrong, including overly salted steaks. I will not return anytime soon.

First time I visited this restaurant (party of 2) we had a great experience all the way around, everything was great. After bragging about this restaurant we decided to go again (party of 8). We got there and when we looked at the table that was setup for us for a party of 8, it was tight, really tight. When I asked to be given another table I was told that there are other parties coming in and those tables are for them. After waiting at the tight table for 30 minutes we were finally offered another table. The food took a really long time to come out and the presentation was not as it was the first time we visited this location. Truly disappointed as I gave the guests in my party the impression that this restaurant was a true treat.

Beautiful restaurant, disappointing food especially at the price. There is a lack of truth in menu descriptions, i.e. offering 'farm ripe' tomatoes and olives on a salad but in reality serving crunchy roma tomatoes more likely to be seen on a fast food burger, and no olives at all. The scallops ($32) were over-cooked and sandy without any sear whatsoever. In general, the plating and flavors were underwhelming for the price, the ambiance is beautiful, with good service, but very unlikely to return or recommend. Perhaps oysters and wine at the bar, other than that I'll pass.

I eat here about once a month, and often with groups of six or more. It is great for people watching, and has a vibrant energy level. The food is always very good. For downtown Fort Lauderdale, this place offers a great metro feel. The service, however is never up to par with the atmosphere and the food. Drinks take a long time to get, staff is not attentive to empty drink glasses, the waiter is never around when you need him, the last two times I was here, the same waiter spilled a cocktail on one of my guests. Also, one of the staff filled our sparking water glasses with flat water. Expect a nice scene and iffy service.

Although highly recommended I was a bit disappointed in this place. I felt that they were pushing quantity rather than quality. My husband had a lobster tail that he said was good but very expensive ($59). I shared Arctic Char with a friend and it was just ok. I had to send it back because it was almost raw and the seasoning was very bland. The waitress recommended that we have 1lb of fish each which is way too much for the two of us who are light eaters. We also felt as if they were hurrying us along. We had to tell them that we weren't in a hurry and wanted to enjoy our cocktails and wine before dinner. All in all, pretty mediocre.

Although part of the same group as Capital Grille, Lobster Bar looks and feels very different. The Fort Lauderdale location is very handsome, with a vaulted, tiled ceiling reminiscent of New York's Oyster Bar. The 3 course prix fixe, available Sunday-Thursday, was a very good value - for $49 each we were stuffed with crab, shrimp, lobster (a $10 upcharge on that one) and dessert. The staff is friendly and attentive. We were celebrating our anniversary, and everyone congratulated us and they presented us with a delicious cupcake on a decorated plate. Overall a very nice experience, with excellent high-end seafood at a good value.

My husband and I frequent restaurants all over the US and abroad. We're both in our mid to late 40's. We've got a full list of favorite restaurants which we always return to whenever in that particular town. Ft. Lauderdale had a number of places we love to dine at. \nSadly though, Lobster Bar Sea Grill was disappointing in every category of our dining experience. Our reservations were made weeks prior for 11pm on New Years Eve. We've had midnight dinner on New Years Eve for the past 10yrs. We arrived at Lobster Bar Sea Grill around 10:50pm. The maitre d informed us 'unfortunately our table isn't ready'. We were told she wasn't sure how long it's gonna be be before we'll be seated. Please just go hang out at the bar or outside and she'll come find us when the table was ready. She told us the guests at our table were already eating their deserts. Twenty five minutes past 11pm we asked our waited who served us a couple beverages how long our table was going to take. She went, came back and told us the guests at our table were eating their deserts and it shouldn't be much longer now. How disappointing it was to here this same line which was meant to buy the restaurant more time. We finally received our seats and then waited a very long time for out meals to arrive.. Plus the absence of utensils.. Try eating your lobster bisque with a fork. We've eaten lamb, steak, lobster many times over the years in many restaurants and I must say, for roughly$150 per person, this food was no better than many other places we've enjoyed dinner.\nUltimately, I'd say I will never schedule an evening at this restaurant. We are grateful for having such wonderful lives and enjoying New Years Eve together.. Including at a restaurant which failed miserably.\nWe do not recommend this place.\nSorry.. But that was out experience, plus when we read other review on Yelp, we see ample others who expressed the same exact negative experience.\nOh well.\nHappy New Year.

My husband and I had dinner at Lobster Bar on New Year's Eve and had a wonderful time! We definitely took our time and spent about 3 hours at the restaurant. Aaron took great care of us and made the experience enjoyable and memorable. Mark also took very good care of us! Only constructive criticism is the team at Lobster Bar clears dishes WAY too fast. I'm talking, you're taking maybe your last bite and while the fork is midair, someone comes and clears your plate. This happened with almost everything we ate/drank and it got a little frustrating at times to the point we had to ask the server to please bring something back as we were not finished yet. Besides this, the food was delicious and my husband really enjoyed his cocktails. Unfortuantely, I was unable to drink right now due to our baby girl in my tummy, but Aaron made my night even more special by gifting us a super delicious cupcake with the words 'congratulations' on the plate - certainly above and beyond the call of duty! The service is superb and the food is great - you won't be disappointed!

We had an 11:30 reservation however because it was NYE we weren't able to be sat until 12:15. That wasn't a problem. We enjoyed sitting at the bar while waiting. Once sat our service was excellent. However because it was late and we were clearly one of the last tables for the night I felt the food wasn't up to par with the Restaurant's standards. Overall we had a great evening and will definitely be dining again.

Dined on New Years Eve. Ordered a 1.5 pound lobster for my wife, and was told they ran out. How does a lobster house run out of the most popular size lobster in the busiest day of the year. We were forced to buy and share a 3 pound lobster for a usurious price. Otherwise would have been a great night.

I would not suggest this restaurant unless you plan to order very expensive bottles of wine as those tables are the ones that seem to get all of the attention of the waitstaff. Spending 150 plus on food alone isn't good enough for them as it makes you feel like your money isn't green. I have dine Buckhead life restaurants starting in Atlanta when I lived there 15 years ago and love chops in Boca but this place is ridiculous and I felt like a second class citizen and am upset I choose to spend my anniversary here with my husband.

We are from toronto in canada and had a reservation booked for months now. My husband had looked forward to dinner at this place. We looked at the menu online and at the front of the restaurant and were booked right at 5:30 as the restaurant opened for dinner. Come time to order, neither of the entrees that we wanted to order were available as they had changed the menu that day but had failed to inform us nor change their posted/signage. We ended up walking out of the restaurant without ordering anything as the server was not knowledgeable at all and did not offer us any alternatives. She basically just said 'i dunno what to say' and walked away when we asked about the menu items that were removed from their selection. Poor customer service. I would not recommend at all.

Unfortunately from the minute we sat down, the waiter 'in training' was left on his own and clearly did not understand good service in an upscale restaurant. Started by not asking everyone if they would like something from the bar. Brining appetizers with nothing to serve them with, soup with no spoon. After salad was served, took it away before we were done eating. Two of us ordered seafood. First brought scallop dinner, 5 minutes later brought fish dish. My husband and I had to wait an additional 10 minutes for the Bone in Ribeye for two which was supposed to be served already sliced (waiter made a point of making sure we were OK with that), but put at table not sliced and promptly removed by the manager. It was brought back sliced on top of some sort of veal sauce. I was very clear in stating I do not want any sauce of any kind on my steak. My husband ordered a sauce on the side which was also delivered. Manager took steak back and offered to burn the sauce off on the grill which we agreed to because it looked very raw and our friends were almost done eating at this point. It was returned with sauce still visible and the steak still very raw even for me and I love 'rare' meat.\nAt this point, we just wanted to finish and leave. The manager did offer one desert because of all the issues. Never asked if we wanted coffee, or an after dinner drink or anything else. \nWhat a shame! The food was delicious, although all of our side dishes got cold waiting so long for the steak, but difficult to enjoy any of it under this circumstance. Had to order a second bottle of wine just so my friends would have something to drink while we ate our steak.

Overall it was decent, but I don't think it's lived up to the price. The calamari in the lobster ceviche was pretty fishy. The filet was very good, but the 'flash fried' lobster tail that comes with the surf and turf was more like a deep fried tail than a flash fried tail. The service was decent but a bit disorganized. Too many people waiting on us and they didn't seem to know what the others had already done. I accidentally knocked over my drink and rather than get me a new one like most restaurants would do, they just put another one on the bill. While the overall experience was good, not great, I would not rush back to pay $250 again. There are better options in the area.

The food continues to impress! The fish is consistently fresh and cooked to perfection, albeit expensive.\n\nThe food would be worth the money if the dining experience was more polished.

We were also informed about very different specials by both waitresses. It was odd. After ordering a nice bottle of wine, the waitress brought it, I tasted it, but then she proceeded to pour it into my husband's not yet empty glass of something completely different. \n\nWe were also seated in the back corner of a not full dining room.

I can't say enough good things about the Lobster Bar. The place is beautifully designed to mimic the Oyster Bar in New York's Grand Central Station only newer and nicer. Our server, Mat was great. He made wonderful suggestions for our meal with selections that were great to share but not too much food for the two of us. We thoroughly enjoyed a seafood tower as an appetizer and then shared a Red Snapper that was perfectly prepared and seasoned. The wine selection was expansive and reasonably priced, all in all our visit was a terrific experience. I'm sure we'll dine at The Lobster Bar during our next FLL visit!

We were entertaining close friends from Argentina. We have taken them to many upscale dining places like Red (South Beach) and Chima (Ft. Lauderdale) which we think are remarkable. Our thought was to provide them with another unique experience with American style cuisine. Lobster Bar was the spot, sea food with a decidedly North American bent, and was very well thought of by our South American friends. Our server was impossibly good , we even remember her name, Swanee. The food, fantastic. The wine, a bottle of Vueve Cliquot and bottle of Roth Pinot Nior, that Swanee recommended was very good.

Loup De Mer, Mediterranean Sea Bass totally deboned, filleted with a clean, mild flavor, with capers is above and beyond. The signature Nova Scotia Lobster tail, thinly crisped in a flash fried style is served with drawn butter and a honey-mustard aioli. The same can be served in a smaller starter style of Lobster morsels.

South Florida meets NY/L.A./SF Metro....An open Kitchen & fresh fish and seafood on ice displays with varieties of steamed, baked, stuffed and battered lobster dishes. But don't stop there...Make your way passed the perfectly lit bar and lounge areas in the front to a luxuriously subway tiled dining area in a comfortably sized dining room and at dine at tables you can hear your dinner partners at. Phenomenal dishes. Perfectly done temps to order on meat and fish with presentations worthy of any major metropolitan city known for its food. The steaks are above and beyond most steakhouses you will find locally and the side dishes are a bountiful presentation of the Chef's creativity. From cream-less corn mashes to grilled octopus sides and starters it only gets more terrific as you venture among other main dish menu choices. Lamb Chops, Scallops, huge Bone in Rib-eye for one or two, fresh catch local fish dishes prepared by the number of people ordering and then weighted out perfectly for each. From casual jeans and jackets to suits, for business meetings, before a show at the performing art center or for that special date, anniversary or birthday the Lobster Bar and Seafood Grill is a top choice for Fort Lauderdale dining. Attentive Service via an amazing manager (Ryan) and his staff - the Lobster Bar is the 10 you have been looking for.

The starter was very good and the service was good. The main course (lobster) was not at all as expected.\nThe lobster was 'drowning' in sauce, and did not at all look good. The way the lobster was served was not as delicate as we had expected for this type of restaurant. The chef should have placed the sauce on the plate in a small bowl, the impression of the food would then have been more delicate, you would have looked forward to start eating and not the opposite.

I had the worst meal in this restaurant. We ordered Lobster and Filet. I also ordered Lobster Bisque which was just a broth. Lobster Bisque has some lobster in it. Not this one. Told us after that since we were doing the tasting menu that it had no lobster like their normal one does.\nAsked for Steak Med Rare, two of ours came out Well Done. Took them back. They asked if we would like our Lobster Tails broiled instead of Flash Fried. We said yes. One of us did receive it that way but not mine. My lobster was so well cooked that it was tough and one could not eat it. Overall I would hope a restaurant whom specializes in lobster can cook it. None of us will ever go back. The manager did comp that meal that but that does not make up for not having dinner nor for a good dining experience. They had three chances to cook the lobster correctly.

We arrived on time for our reservation and despite been told we were going to be seated 'soon' it took almost 30 minutes for getting into our table. To further our frustration we noticed several tables available in the main salon when we were seated. It seems they like to slowdown the seating to show a big crowd waiting at the entrance of the restaurant to make the place look busier than it really was! The food was average, but at those prices, you could have had better seafood at Red Lobster while saving some money, and the wait would have been shorter!

My best friend suggested the Lobster Bar for my 19th Anniversary dinner. I was not disappointed. My husband got the snapper, and I got the twin filets. Everything was delicious. My filets were so tender I could practically cut them with my fork. The Brussels sprouts with bacon were smoky, flavorful, delicious, and most definitely not overcooked. For dessert we ordered the praline crunch and the peach ginger cobbler. Along with our desserts, the server brought us a vanilla cupcake ala mode with the fluffiest chocolate frosting and 'Happy Anniversary' written across the plate in chocolate. It was unexpected and so sweet. \n\nI also enjoyed a classic Mojito, my cocktail of choice. It was perfectly balanced, and not too sharp. My hubby ordered a glass of port with dessert, servers choice. It was delicious and I ended up finishing the last few sips. It was a Taylor 10 yr old Tawny, and I intend to purchase a bottle for my next special occasion. \n\nI'm so pleased I found this place and I hope to return soon.

We love coming here for the fish. This time, based on wonderful experiences at Chops, we decided to order steaks. We were quite disappointed. They were cooked perfectly, but served on a bed of veal jus, which tasted sweet and artificial. One of the managers came by and offered to re-plate the steaks when we told her we did not like the jus. This helped, but still, the steaks were not very tasty, and nothing like the flavorful beef at Chops. We'll stick to the fish in the future.\nMy husband's calamari appetizer was superb; my tuna tartar, not so much. His dessert (the citrus tart) was excellent and my chocolate dessert (name escapes me) was nothing special. Service, as always was very good.

This was my fourth time at the restaurant, always for lunch because I work in the area. The restaurant is beautiful and the white-brick-clad walls and vaulted ceilings always reminds me of the great Oyster Bar in Grand Central Station in New York City. \n\nThis time, I had the lobster BLT, which I have had before, and it was excellent. My friend had the one-pound lobster on a bun with lemon aioli. The lobster in that sandwich was overcooked and rubbery and the lemon-aioli tasted only of mayonnaise, with no hint of garlic or lemon. \n\nThe usually excellent French fries were this time slightly undercooked and lacked crispness. \n\nThe desserts were fantastic. My friend had the meringue filled with passion fruit mousse and I had the brownie sundae. \n\nThe service was terrible. It was Christmas Eve at 12:30 pm and not very busy but plenty of staff. When we needed something we would see our server just hanging around talking to other employees (including a manager). We had to call him to our table repeatedly.

Not sure if it was made ahead of time and then served once ordered. Brussel sprouts were delicious.\nWarm chocolate cake was OK. I had a mint passion drink that was yummy. Will definitely give them another try but will sit closer to the front of the restaurant in hopes that the noise level will be less. Love the decor!!!

Beautiful restaurant and outstanding service.The food Ok. The problem is that you get cheated.\nWhen you order lobster you expect the whole lobster. They take the lobster shell and fill it with meat and even claw meat which spinner lobster doesn't have put a lot of sauce and you don't have the real lobster.\nBe carefull if you order lobster

What a surprise when we walked through the front door. The interior was breathtaking. But that was just the beginning. The waiter was very personable and thorough. We had the sea bass and halibut which were done to perfection. For dessert we were treated to a flaming cherries jubilee. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

For starters, the atmosphere is classy with its strikingly beautiful glossy, white subway tile ceiling. As for the food, it is always outstanding, consistent in taste and presentation; service is friendly, efficient and timely. The flash fried lobster is unique and so very delicious as is the Chliean sea bass and sides of asparagus and Brussels sprouts. Our waiter Sunday evening was Chip who could be a role model for all people in the service industry. Chip didn't miss a beat and made our wonderful dining experience even more wonderful. We will be back in Florida again soon and we will definitely be dining at Lobster Bar Sea Grille and look forward to seeing Chip again. Experience this restaurant...you won't be sorry!

Dined at the Lobster Bar this past Monday, disappointing is the appropriate description. We were a party of (3) and have dined here before, I probably wont be back. Two in our party ordered scallops which were good, the third ordered a rib eye. At first I thought that the knife was dull, then we realized that the knife was not dull, the steak was tough, really tough. When we mentioned this to the waiter his response was, 'our steaks are very good'. With that being said, we called for the check and left. A more appropriate response might have led me to try this place again. With so many other great places on Las Olas I dont feel compelled to dine at a place that is just average.

We came here with friends for a special occasion dinner. Although we read some disappointing reviews, we still decided to try it as the menu looked great and we wanted to support new restaurants on Las Olas. \nAlthough the service was okay, the food was downright terrible. The octopus appetizer was rubbery and bland, and our entrees (lobster and seared tuna) were just average. Not what I expected at all based on the prices they were charging! After wine, apps, entrees, and dessert we paid around $100pp after tax. Lobster Sea Grille wants to compete with the higher end restaurants in South Florida but sadly falls short. \nWe will not be returning again.

Lobster Bar is definitely a great restaurant, consistently delivering great food and offering a superb wine list to its patrons. While certainly not cheap, the quality of the somewhat creative cuisine and the trendy atmosphere make an evening spent at this Las Olas joint a real treat.\nWhat I want to stress, though, as it's becoming less and less common even in higher-end restaurants, is the unbelievable level of service you experience at the Lobster Bar. If you made a reservation, after the hostess takes you and your party to the table, the server and the floor staff will greet you by name throughout the entire meal. If, by chance, you dined there before, no matter how long ago, one of the managers will come by to say hi and treat you like an old friend who decided to come visit and catch up... Really well done!\nOnly con, the noise level.

Good food in a great location with excellent ambience. The only draw back to such a great place as the Lobster Bar Sea Grille is the 'corporate kitchen' experience associated with chain food. The food is good, not great. Chefs are limited to the 'corporate' recipe and not given the liberties a local chef will have in creating a food experience and not just plating it up. It's a trade off, great place or great food. It's rare one will get both. This is a great place to hang out, they knocked it out of the park with the ambience and unique feel of the brick and mortar. I do recommend the place, just expect good food and at big price. P.S. the lobster in the lobster tower was actually FROZEN when it was brought to the table. It was good, not great.

We've been to the Lobster Bar several times, food is very good there. \nThe waiter was nice, but had a tendency to take away the bread and the complimentary\nappetizer without asking if we were finished.

When I went to get my car, it took almost 20 minutes.\nAnd then when I got home, I noticed they left someone else's car keys besides my own in my\ncar! I drove all the way back to give them the keys, and told the restaurant manager what\nhappened. It took me 1 1/2 hours between going home, going back, and going home again.\nThe manager, Carmeline, that was on that night didn't offer anything for my trouble. No complimentary anything!

Thank goodness we each had only 1 drink and did not have dessert or we would have had to take out second mortgages on our homes.\n\nSorry, maybe if the atmosphere was quieter and the food was a higher quality, the Lobster Bar would have been worthy of the cost. It is the most disappointmenting restauant we have ever eaten at in Las Olas.

Our family of 4 two grown children) were really excited to visit the Lobster Bar Sea Grille. It was our last night in FLL and wanted to have a great meal to end our trip on. The restaurant is lovely and we were seated at our table within a couple of minutes and given menus. We spent some time looking at the great menu selections. Nobody came to our table to fill our water glasses, offer suggestions or take drink orders. We were seated right near the front kitchen station area and many, many servers walked around our table on their way to other tables. Tables that were seated after us got water and drinks. It almost become comical as it moved to 20 minutes and beyond. Even the maitre d', whom was around the dining room would not look in our direction. We were polite and well dressed, but were ready to leave for anywhere else! Finally our waiter showed up at the table - we had to vent to her an she sounded totally surprised that we could be upset that we did not have water or contact with anyone. I almost cried in front of her, obviously our evening was not what we had hoped for. In a restaurant that we expected to spend $400 for dinner, we had been iced. The food was fine. Service terrible. Price high. There are plenty of other restaurants on Las Olas that would have welcomed our business, we should have left.\nPS - many of the menu items are listed as and 'experience' - I hope they can work on making the dining experience better.

I have gone to lobster bar several times. We have had problems in the past with our food coming out cold. I think that they don't have the kitchen coordinated properly to allow the main courses to be ready at the same time. If one dish is ready first they put it under lights that obviously do not do a sufficient job of keeping the food hot. \nWe keep going back and trying again and again but this was the last time. My fish was ready before my husbands lobster. We saw it sitting there as we were in a rear booth by the kitchen. We didn't want it to get cold so we asked them to bring it. I was actually completely finished with my entire dinner by the time they brought the lobster which was ICE cold!! \nWe paid our bill of $280 gave the server a tip and left!!\nWe will NEVER go back!

I'm not a food snob and I'm pretty easy to please. But Lobster Bar Sea Grille let me down. Starting with the good stuff. The place is absolutely gorgeous inside. Our server, John, was one of the most attentive, friendliest, and most competent I've ever had anywhere.\n\nThe bad stuff and maybe this is on me. My wife and I wanted to have a couple of cocktails and a small bite to eat. We ordered from their specialty cocktail menu and the drinks were very expensive and very average. We decided to share a 'surf and turf'. Probably a bad idea to order turf at a Sea Grille. Duh! Anyway, the dry aged bone in NY strip was tough and tasteless (which is pretty hard to do with dry aged beef). But they figured out a way to do it. The surf part was a 'flash fried' miniscule lobster tail. Might as well have been a large prawn, battered, and deep fried. A huge miss on this choice.\n\nOn the bright side, the service was so good and the ambience so comfortable that I would give them another try. Next time, however, I'm going for one of the whole fish items they offer. Hope I'll get a better result.

Went to restaurant for Valentines Day. I ordered a crab cocktail which came in a little dish with small portion as compared to the cost of it.

We have dined at Lobster Bar Sea Grille several times because we enjoy the food. That being said, I am always intrigued by how off-putting are the ladies at the reception desk. Every time we step up to the desk - and since my table was close to the reception area I observed this over and over, it appears those women are told to initially ignore the patrons. At times there are three or four of them, and they don't even look up or acknowledge anyone's presence for an uncomfortable period. Friendly greeting? They know not the meaning of that phrase. Is no patron worthy of their notice? \r\n\r\nThe last time we dined was Valentine's Day, so I made the reservation 6 weeks in advance - and every time was available on Open Table, so I really planned ahead. I also made an early reservation - 6:15, as I know they get behind at times, from 7-8. When we arrived, they offered us a table in the bar area, and when we requested a table in the main dining room, we were told in a very snobby way, that we should have requested the main dining room - even though we reserved way ahead of time. There were tables available - but we were told they were spoken for. Disappointed!!\r\n\r\nOn the bright side, the service was exemplary and the food quite good -but not great. My Dover sole was over done, dry and a bit salty. The signature flash-fried lobster tail was fabulous as always. Pricey, but almost worth it.

However, this was not an ambient restaurant for a romantic evening out. Perhaps it was overrun with diners and wait/service staff because of Valentine's Day, or, it was the location of our table being too near the restrooms and front kitchen/seafood bar. Our dining experience was not the quiet, intimate atmosphere for which we were hoping to enjoy. The wait/service staff was very attentive and it was obvious the management team runs a very efficient restaurant. The signature cocktail of the night was a delicious blend of sweet gin and muddled strawberries garnished with a sprinkle of cocoa powder. The lobster morsel appetizer was fair in flavor; after eating it I've decide that I'm not a big fan of flash fried, breaded lobster bits. For the main entree, my husband and I each ordered a filet oscar-style. One filet was slightly under-cooked and the other was a bit too salty. We just switched steaks and carried on. The baked potato for $10 was huge! Overall, the food was good, but not worth the price in our opinion. Would we try it again or recommend it to a friend? Maybe...

We had a great dinner for valentines day. I would classify this location as more for a special occasion for my budget but it was worth every penny. I think the food was terrific, it was both presented and cooked exceptionally well. The halibut was some of the best I have had and I have caught and cooked it fresh myself from Alaska in the past.\nI found the service to be very good but not great. I heard my server and the server of the next section over repeat the same speech for every table that sat down. The recommendations were the same and seemed like the chef wrote them a script as opposed to a personal recommendation. They recommended the octopus which we got and loved. We also had empty plates sit in front of us for 15 minutes after we completed our entree. I know I am being knit picky but it's rare I that I enjoy a restaurant so much but the service some what lets me down. I will definitely recommend it to a friend and will go again on our next occasion. If the chef or manager is reading this, a little less script and be mindful of empty plates and you are a 10/10 in my book. Thanks.

This is a beautiful restaurant on a vibrant street. Was looking forward to a great meal but was disappointed. Specialty of the house is lightly fried 1 lb lobster tail for $59. OK, sounds good. Had way too much breading and was greasy - PLUS- under cooked. (We were ill later at night but that's not the cause of this review)\n\n Was charged $42 for a sea bass that may have weighed 6 oz soaking wet and was very, very thin; menu said it would cost $32 and waitress said maybe $38. In any case that's around $100/lb. Was good, but c'mon! Also the 'fillet' was bony. \n\nThe popular tater tots were very good but again, quite greasy.\n\nFinally, spoke to a hostess (will not reveal her name for her protection) who guaranteed me a 'quiet' booth in the front of the restaurant as it was our anniversary request. Arrived 2 hours later, she was not there nor was the promised booth. On a positive note the manager did replace our under cooked lobster tail, although we asked for light breading and it came out more breaded than the first one. Oh well, he meant well.

Came back and then had to wait. \n\nIt's very loud. Not a place for a romantic dinner.\n\nFor a chef modeled restaurant, food was not impressive. I had lobster which was tough and chewy. Wife had sword fish which was a lackluster portion. Prepared well with more fluff than fish. Dessert was a pastry a la mode. The pastry was way too similar to the bread served Before our meal and came with some almond shavings and a generic chocolate syrup. Quite a joke.

Top of the line choice among Buckhead Life's many fine Atlanta area restaurants has found it's way down I-95 to Fort Lauderdale's Las Olas Blvd. It's diverse menu choices among the best I have seen offers seafood selections flown in or caught daily , and does not forget about the prime beef meat lover either. The signature Fried Lobster is awesome and that night Alaskan Crab claws were enjoyed by my BW [ beautiful wife ]. You must leave room for a choice of 10 different desserts from Cherries Jubilee to fabulous Profiteroles. Superb service starts with the hostess at the door,continues throughout the evening and surprisingly ends with a personal invitation to return again for another dining experience to remember.

Long time fan of Pano's restaurants. First visit to LBSG. Waited in bar until my reservation time only to be ceremoniously escorted to the bar booth next to where I had been waiting and not into the dining room for my dinner. Fortunately, our first waiter realized this as a big snafu and thirty minutes past my reservation time, finally got us seated in the dining room. Our appetizer order came incomplete and what was delivered was unnecessarily presented on four different plates which all together was too much for the size of our small table. ( I had earlier requested all the chilled seafood appetizers come on one plate.) Then before we had completed our seafood appetizer, another waiter showed up with our salads which forced us to gobble down our seafood so the table could be cleared for the salads. Seriously, this staff needs to be retrained and fast ! Overall, the food was excellent except the free bread was as bland as I have encountered. Probably the noisiest restaurant imaginable. More like a Miami nightclub atmosphere.

We started with the mussels, which were terrific, including dunking the rolls into the broth!! We then split a 2.25# lobster and bone-in ribeye. Both were terrific, and served hot! We shared the baked potato, and they split it for us when it came out. Ellen mentioned it was my birthday, and for dessert they brought out a cupcake with sprinkles and a candle. I thought that was very nice, but I am not normally a cupcake person because they are usually dry.

I've enjoyed several visits to Lobster Bar Sea Grille [LBSG] on Las Olas since it opened a couple of years ago. Last Tuesday night (May 12) was no exception. The branzino was exceptional. My guest, an experienced (and hugely critical) 'foodie' who now lives in Bogota, described it as 'the best fish' he has ever had, 'anywhere'. That alone is a huge testimonial. But, what I compliment LBSG for, most of all, is its attentive and professional service; in this regard, I single-out (again) Mr Bobby Asare who is outstanding for his sophisticated Customer skills, his genuine charm, and his calm and sensitive willingness to recommend from the menu including the wine-list. Thank you, Mr Asare. Thank you LBSG team - for another evening of extraordinary caring, wonderful ambience, and culinary excellence.

Live in ATL, home of the high end Buckhead Life Group Restuarants, and owner of the Lobster Bar in FLL. I get to FLL every month so am quite familiar with the FLL dining scene. \n\nThe Lobster Bar is a good addition to the high end Las Olas dining scene. The dining room itself is a thing of beauty, and a version of Chops Lobster Bar in Atlanta. Very well appointed.\n\nthe menu itself, true to the BLG tradition, focuses on the theme of the restaurant (in this case seafood) but borrows the best from the other high end sister companies like steakhouse steaks (ala Chops), fried lobster tail appetizer (Chops Lobster), etc... Unique to this location is the whole fish option. \n\nThe Lobster Bar is pretty pricey. Expect to spend $75-$100 / head. The service was good but not up to the top notch delivery of the typical BLG standards, Service was a disjointed. \n\nI am a fan of the BLG and hope this place gets its solid BLG footing. Its one of the best locations in FLL but still has a way to go to be up to par with the best BLG restuarants. .

This place has a stunning interior that says 'special occasion' from the moment you walk in the door. The service was attentive without being overbearing, and friendly rather than formal. The menu has a great variety of seafood and steak options. Don't miss the tater tot coins side dish! Only drawbacks of the evening were the noise level (which quickly got intense as the restaurant filled up. The tiled, vaulted ceiling is beautiful, but it's a real echo chamber) and a few of the entrees (a filet mignon was almost inedibly tough, as was their signature flash-fried lobster tail--which at $59 should certainly be a more palatable dish!) Still, we'd definitely go back and choose more judiciously from the menu.

My family and I enjoy dining at Lobster Bar, and we've gone multiple times within the past 6months. It's a place I've brought business associates as well as comrades who strive for good food. It's a no surprises type of place and while it's a chain restaurant, they strive to make it feel personal. \nHowever, success might be catching up with them. Wait service has been somewhat weaker and the wait times longer as of late. A recent dining experience had us waiting 20 minutes beyond our reservation time - and we arrived early - and the food took approximately 20 - 30 minutes to arrive for each course.\nThe experience was fine, again no surprises, and it's a very good value.\nBut in truth, the bar drinks could benefit with more skilled bar keep, and the waiters and assistants perhaps from a refresher course.\nWhen you enjoy a place like we enjoy Lobster Bar, we hope that it's success isn't fleeting.

Decided to take my wife and some people to this restaurant for her birthday. Since it is only a short walk from our apartment we were looking forward to our first meal here hoping to make it a mainstay. What a missed opportunity for the manager.\n1st we ordered some salads for the children at the table hoping to get something in their bellies while waiting on the last of our party to arrive. They completely forgot about them.\n2nd when we did place our order they forgot about our oysters appetizer\n3rd I ordered a bottle of wine. It took about 30 minutes to finally have it served.\nThe truly disappointing part was the lack of attention by the manager. We could see our waiter talking to him and the frustration he was conveying. However, even when the manager dropped off the wine at a service station just feet from my seat, he failed to even acknowledge our table. All the while he was glad handing some tables with regular patrons. Completely ignoring new patrons that were having a terrible experience on his watch.

Upon entering the restaurant, we were barely acknowledged by a less than friendly host & hostess. After several minutes of waiting for them to look up from their computers, the hostess took us to our seats...the very last booth in the back by the kitchen! Not a good start for 1st timers to your restaurant. I asked the hostess if we could have a different table, and she curtly responded that they were all reserved. There happened to be another booth, same size as the one we were seated at, that she could have easily moved us to, as those patrons didn't show up for at least 30 minutes after we were seated. \nOur waiter was monotone and uninformative. He basically ignored me and addressed all questions and comments to my husband. \nTowards the end of our meal, the manager stopped by our table and asked how everything was. We voiced our displeasure with the waiter and his lack of knowledge.

Let me start by saying we eat on Las Olas quite often because we have season tickets to the theater and always do dinner ahead of time. This was our second try at this restaurant. We always let the waiter know that we have a 2 hour window to eat (out by 7:30). Last time 2 of our party had to eat their meals in 10 minutes because the steaks were not cooked correctly. We decided to give it another try hoping is was just an off night And knowing that it is part of the same group as 'Chops' in Boca Raton (Always a great meal). Most of our party ordered the steaks of various cuts, one person ordered the lobster. Additionally, we had multiple apps and coffee and desserts as well. Not being specific lets just say for a 'Seafood' restaurant the lobster was a complete disappointment. The steaks were fair and the service was just ok, especially given the fact that we eat so early (restaurant not crowded).

The shared entree was a 3 lb fresh John Dory cooked perfectly in a butter, caper, wine, garlic sauce. An absolute gourmet delight. The brussel side was average, but tasty. It was a free upgrade from the standard and much appreciated. Had it for lunch the next day.

It was was fiances birthday. I decided to try somewhere new. We had 9:15 reservations we arrived at 9:04 valet was awesome! Our waiter did not speakly fluent english and she sooke softly and fast. we ordered our apitizer and then we ordered our entres and two sides each. Our waitress brought my two sides out thinking that was our apitizer we asked her about our apitizer and she said oh my i had no idea you ordered the calamari so she removed the sides and at this point its already 43 mimutes we are at the table. our calamari came it the bread it sat on was so burnt we didnt eat it. the waitress did have the a sample crab cake brought to us that was delicious and very nice of her. At this point we both are not impressed its 10 and we are praying the entres are good. well the entres come out and the steaks are way to burnt for us to eat so we cut the top and bottom off and we ate the middle we both like our steaks medium it was not juicy to me. Sorry . they brought us a creme bru le which was ok and wr did appreciate it! We didnt leave the reataurant until 10:30 ish thats late they were already cleaned up. We believe in tilling over and beyond for exceptional service at a restaurant like lobster grille, we tipped the minimun because she had a few people helping her and she completly made us feel as if we were not welcomed.I am glad to be able to share my experience.

Both of us had fish entrees. I'm not a big cappers person and they were a bit over done. Quality of fish was great just a little too pricey I believe. Everything else was wonderful and perhaps the best service that I have ever had. One of the few places I have been able to get a Chimay beer with dinner. Definitely recommend but inquire on market price as you make your selections.

Great food, beautiful place, but the servers were rushing us out. Literally they wanted the table, not the patrons. They must be under timing pressure. This is not fast food, not at these prices!

We had a wonderful dining experience at Lobster Bar Sea Grille. Firstly, it is a gorgeous space with tiled, vaulted ceilings that remind one of an old NYC subway station. The noise level is high, but not impossible to hear. The servers are very professional, friendly and accommodating. The food, whether you choose whole lobsters, fish or steak are perfectly prepared and delicious. I had the halibut over pearl barley risotto and it was yummy. He lobster bisque is excellent! I highly recommend this restauant and will definitely return. Reasonable valet parking as well. Special kudos to George, the manager who rules with charm, grace and generosity.

This place is amazing this was our 2nd time here and just as the first, this place was awesome!!! Arrived 5min late and only had to wait about 10mins to be seated. The place was very very busy, our server was GREAT! Ask for John the Greek! Food was brought out very fast and everything was hot and fresh. Can't say anything bad about this place so far!

Fabulous! They ran out of smallish lobsters just as I ordered mine so I ordered the deep fried lobster tail instead. It was amazing. The crab cake to start was also amazing. We had the lemon tart for dessert - also amazing. Not too long of a wait, beautiful interior, lively and happy - perfect!

The evening was fantastic for a number of reasons. To begin, we were seated at a table near the open kitchen and watching the function of the beautifully run kitchen team was like watching art. Next, the service was excellent - attentive, informative, generous but not overbearing. Finally, the food ... The mussels were large. The bisque was perfect. The fresh fish were moist and flavorful. It was a fantastic meal overall!

Wonderful tasty food! Love the $49 table d'hote - 3 course dinner. Great value - hope they keep it. We had a charming server. Comfortable, pretty restaurant. The lobster bisque was delicious but arrived cold. We returned it. Maître d came back and told my husband the soup was indeed cold and the kitchen was preparing a new soup - they didn't just reheat it! We were not rushed, it was a lovely evening!

My wife and I went here for our first night out on vacation last week. I got their 'signature' fried lobster tail, and my wife got the fresh snapper. We also each ordered Caesar salads. Bottom line - they get poor marks because of our server and the fried lobster. Our server was bothered by our presence. Not sure why? Dressed appropriately, no kids, couldn't have 'appeared' to be bad tippers, etc. He was not helpful nor polite. As for the lobster, it was very expensive and very disappointing. After the first bite I was left wanting more. It had lost all of the sweet and salty lobster flavor that I love and the fried batter was overwhelming. \nThe good was the Caesar and the snapper. Both were delicious.\nThe place was really nicely decorated and designed - we both enjoyed our surroundings. But, we won't be going back next time we're in town.

My friend and I decided to try out Lobster Bar based on excellent reviews we'd read. The meal started off well with a crab cake appetizer that was chock full of meat and absolutely delicious. Shrimp Scampi was the main course but it should have been called 'Shrimp Skimpy' since it consisted of only 2 grilled prawns (with heads) atop a bed of fettuccine. To be fair, it was very tasty but definitely not worth $31.\n\nAlso worth mentioning is that we sat at a table outside by choice on a somewhat chilly evening by Florida standards. We were surprised that an upscale restaurant like Lobster Bar didn't have any heaters. The handful of other guests we saw while seated outside appeared uncomfortable.

Service and kitchen was very slow. When the entreess arrived, three of our Fish dinners came out 'luke warm'. Very disappointing for an early dinner on a Tuesday night. What a shame...beautiful location. Amazing ambience, however, there are many restaurants in South Florida with amazing ambience.

We live off Las Olas and chose your restaurant for many reasons. The food, the energy and the atmosphere. Our reservation was on Friday, 11/21 at 7:45. This was a celebration of two birthdays of which one couple traveled from Jacksonville to celebrate with us. We had a reservation with the request for a booth, however after a wait we were placed in a room that was similar to a conference room. There was an odor that resembled a new carpet install and the we felt isolated. We were very disappointed, not in the company, the food or the server, but how the situation was handled.

Found this place on Open Table and WOW! From the minute we were greeted to the time we left, we were treated like we were really wanted guests. Stacey, our server, knew the menu inside and out and provided impeccable service with a smile throughout the evening. The food was to die for!
