Best

Can't go wrong here. My husband can order steak and I can have crab cakes and lobster. Ask the bar tender to recommend wine for your meal. Our's went perfectly. The crab cake...

Worst

I've eaten in high-end restaurants, and steak houses in particular, from Montreal to NYC and from Dallas to LA. Overall, I was disappointed with my experience at the Lobster Bar....

I could drink the lobster bisque through a straw! 10/5/2008

Fine dining at its best... A step more casual than Chops above it, but with no cut corners on the menu. Most delicious lobster bisque that I actually ordered an additional bowl, and upon sampling mine, 2 other diners at my table ordered a bowl as well. I had the salmon as my entree and was blown away by the freshness and seasoning of the fish. My meal was accompanied witht the special martini of the evening and I could not have been more pleased. The staff, although experienced, was not much of a modern upbeat group and some of the beverages went empty to long, considering the caliber and accolade of the restaurant. I would most definely dine again and would consider such a venue for lunch dining as well. Pros: Menu variety, great modern bar, delicious flavors! Cons: Tired/old staff, slightly dark. more

Low Class Service, High Price Meal 4/7/2008

After having dinner at the Lobster Bar with my significant other Friday night, we can honestly say that we not be returning. Upon arriving we were immediately seated and to our dismay our table was extremely unbalanced to the point our water would spill out of the glass if the table was bumped. I actually had to ask our waiter to put something under the table to prevent it from shaking. Dealling with a shaky table would have been OK within itself however the unfortunate experience did not stop there. When his 4lb Lobster was brought out over cooked and unseasoned the evening continued to get worse. He wasn't even able to finish it because it was so poorly cooked. We continued to try and enjoy the evening as much as possible and I decided not to complain at that point because we really just wanted to leave. The next morning he went out to start his truck and the battery was dead. Why? Because the valet turned on his lights instead of keeping them on automatic lights. His lights had been on all night because of a valet mistake. On Sunday I decided to call and express my concerns to the manager. Not because we wanted to be compensated because we already decided we would not be visiting there again, but in hopes another customer didn't experience what we did. The manager who I expressed my concerns to had an excuse for everything. The table was shakey because it was half on carpet and half on tile. The lobster was rubbery because it was a 4lb lobster. The valets always turn the lights on fully. As a customer of such a high profile restaurant I expect my concerns to be heard out with out excuses being made. If 4lb lobsters are rubbery then why serve them on your menu? If having tables split on carpet and tile causes instabilty find something to fix the issue prior to the customer sitting down? An experienced valet would know the difference between automatic lights and manual lights if he looked at the dial when he touched it? Low Class Service. Pros: Ambience Cons: Food, Customer Service more

My Lobster 8/30/2007

Can't go wrong here. My husband can order steak and I can have crab cakes and lobster. Ask the bar tender to recommend wine for your meal. Our's went perfectly. The crab cakes were full of huge chunks of crab instead of being ground fine with a lot of filler. Also, the dips/sauces were incredible! Pros: Lobster more

The best 6/30/2007

My sister wanted to take me for my birthday so we went 6/30/07. From the time we arrived at 5:30 til the time we left the service was impeccable. The food was superb and I had the best Mojito I ever had. Our waiters were so professional and attentive. The food was fresh and needed nothing but to be eaten!!! I cant wait to return again. Its very classy and upscale and the service and quality you get will have you leaving feeling the same way!!!!!!!!!!!! Pros: everything Cons: none more

OVERRATED! 6/13/2006

My significant other brought me to the Lobster Bar for my birthday, and I was ecstatic to go - highest hopes in the world. Being from the Northeast, I naturally ordered a 2lb lobster to spoil myself. But I was horrified to discover upon service, that my lobster was OVERCOOKED! Who overcooks lobster? It's the simplest thing in the world to cook, yet it was so rubbery I had to cut it with a STEAK KNIFE! I'm not joking. And as I sat and waited to tell the waiter to have it sent back, my partner's fish was getting cold. I never got a chance to complain about my food because neither of our TWO waiters, yes two of them, never inquired about our meal. Even after my partner switched meals with me, so I wouldn't have to suffer through a terrible birthday-meal, we weren't asked why we switched or how anything was, and were finally handed our (incredibly overpriced) check. On our way out we attempted to ask to speak to the manager, but the Maitre d was too busy stuffing his own face with overcooked lobster to be bothered with us. After waiting for 20 minutes to be attended to, we finally stormed out in a rage. Perhaps I'm old fashioned, but when I pay $50 for a piece of seafood, I expect it to be cooked perfectly and to be asked how it was. I've had much better lobster sitting on a picnic table in Maine having paid $10 to have it thrown in a big open pot outdoors by a man in overalls. I will never set foot in this amateur excuse for a high-end restaurant. Pros: None Cons: Food, service, decor (poor excuse for the Oyster Bar at Grand Cen more

Overpriced 10/22/2005

I've eaten in high-end restaurants, and steak houses in particular, from Montreal to NYC and from Dallas to LA. Overall, I was disappointed with my experience at the Lobster Bar. The food was average and the service was average. The prices are outrageous. Smehow I would have expected more for about $160 for just two people. Pros: ambience Cons: PRICE, food, service more

Shocking to my taste buds 9/4/2005

I am a chef's wife so I admit, I am a bit of a food snob. In my defense however, I am very confident in saying that I have been lucky enough to experience great food: food filled with passion and a love for the culinary arts. What I experienced tonight was the product of a kitchen staff who had no care for the delicate seafood that they were preparing. My husband's lobster was rubbery, and our guest's grouper was as tough as plastic. The price that accompanied these dishes amazed me. Our bill was $300 for four and I left with a feeling of immense dissapointment. Overall, service was as good as could be expected for the business, but the food was lacking the gusto that I was so looking forward to. Pros: atmosphere Cons: price, food quality more

Not worth the price 2/13/2005

Good food, service was okay. Waited 15 minutes for waiter to take our check, just not woth the price! $200 for two people! Would rather go somewhere else and spend $110 for a great meal. Good to have experienced it but wouldn't go back. Pros: It's Lobster Bar Cons: Price more

Good Service/Okay Food 12/15/2003

My dining experience here was just slightly above average. The service was good, the food in general was not impressive. My husband enjoyed his lobster meal, but my Asian-inspired fish entree lacked the flavor I was expecting. They do have the best mash potatoes I have ever tasted and their complimentary cheesecake (celebrating an anniversary) was divine. more

Great date restaurant! 7/13/2003

To guarantee a good meal ask for Felix & Julius. The waiters were the best and that made the evening. We had a fabulous dinner, champagne and dessert. But what we remeber the most was the excellent service. Ask for these guys! They're great. Pros: Service, Food, Ambiance Cons: Large portions more

Top notch, without a doubt 12/29/2002

Dinner at the Lobster Bar was a pleasant experience all the way around. Service was flawlessly attentive, and the food was magnificent. I did feel that the filet was overcooked, which is unusual for a restaurant of this caliber, but it was nonetheless a good steak. The lobster was fantastic, and the sides were even better. more

My favorite in ATL 12/2/2002

Fabulous place. I took my father there for his birthday and was thrilled with it. The food was great and we had a very attentive server. I will go back again and again. Garlic mashed potatos are a must! Pros: cozy atmosphere Cons: expensive more

Good Food - Obnoxious Atmosphere 6/21/2002

The food is above average for Atlanta...Great Steaks! However, the basement restaurant setting is extremely noisey and does not allow for an intimate dinner. We will not be returning but will try Chops upstairs which seemed more condusive to have a conversation while dining. Pros: Good service, Great steaks Cons: Aweful Signage, Extremely noisey, Greasy fried lobster more

big disappointment 6/11/2002

I had called two weeks prior to push the reservation I had made a month before back 15 min. When we arrived, no reservation. The staff worked us in after a long wait and were quite snotty about it. The table was awful, no privacy. We expected more from the service--the waiter seemed like he'd never worked in a restaurant before. The server also convinced me to change my order and I was disappointed with what I got. I enjoy Chops but would never recommend the Lobster Bar to anyone, nor would I take someone there I wanted to impress. more

Editorial

  • In Short
    Loosely modeled on the famed Oyster Bar at Grand Central Station, complete with a vaulted-tiled ceiling, this downstairs adjunct of Chops steakhouse is awash in old-world class. Dark wood fixtures and understated lighting give the room a cozy, clubby feel. A formally attired waitstaff, eager to satisfy the whims of the upscale clientele, works the room with grace. While steaks are available in the Lobster Bar, if you want meat, you're better off upstairs. Start with crab cakes, surprisingly light given the abundance of moist lump meat they contain. Live Maine lobsters--ranging from two to five pounds--are fried, steamed or broiled to order and arrive tender to the bite, with just the right balance of briny and sweet tones. Choice sides, which easily feed two, include earthy creamed spinach and dense, buttery mashed potatoes. For dessert, try the carmelized rum-raisin bread pudding or decadent chocolate-bottom pie with an Oreo crust.
