"As always, our dining experience at The Lobster was fantastic with great food, lively ambiance, extremely attentive service, beautiful presentation, and accommodation to special requests. This is a place where I take special guests for food, wine, and high level conversations. Never a disappointment."

"I had lunch there this Monday Feb 8 (Party of 6). We made reservations for 2 PM but at the time when we arrived our table was not ready (Then what is the purpose of making reservations?) then the hostess said it is ready but stopped us and made us wait in the hallway because the table was still not ready! They seems a bit disorganized but the waitress made up for it, she was very good and attentive."

"Finally, after wanting to try "The Lobster" for some time, we made reservations for a Friday night dinner. After checking-in and waiting in the lobby, the hostess kept calling out a name with no reply. I realized that she was actually staring at me expecting a reaction. When I didn't comply, she realized she was calling out the wrong name. She quickly changed it to my name and we were escorted to our table.
It is a small cramped dining area and we were seated in a small table for two with two similar tables on each side and an exact row of tables behind us. Way to small and cramped. Any conversation is difficult due to the noise level.
Our waiter was terrific. He explained the menu and was just all around perfect - as was our meal. I had the butter poached lobster, while my husband had the NY Steak.
It was difficult trying to exit our table. I literally was stuck in the middle of the two rows and had to politely excuse myself as I pushed through the table next to mine. (and no, I'm not large by any means, our waiter was always behind my husband in the isle)
Overall, we enjoyed our meal, the view was beautiful. Would I go again? Yes. I'll just need to ask not to be placed at the smaller tables."

"We went to The Lobster at 5 pm on a late Sunday afternoon. The place was slammed so I'm glad I made an Open Table reservation. The host seated us quickly. I was a little disappointed that we went so early, but we still only got a partial view. The server brought a bread basket and pesto. The bread was a little stale and the pesto was bland. The Cesar salad was very good with parmesan cracker, but it was small for the price. We also got prawns and mussels. Both were very good. My son and husband got lobster, spiny and New England boiled. I wish the server had offered to crack my son's lobster. I hailed a member of the wait staff and he did it for us, but he wasn't an expert and the lobster got a bit shredded. Both lobsters great, but the spiny lobster was excellent. I still blanched at the $88 price tag for the spiny lobster. Overall a good experience."

"Can't beat the evening view. The Ferris wheel at night is worth a dinner. Have never been sold on their food but service has always been great."

"Went here on Sunday evening, and it was packed. I did request a window seat so I can have a view of the pier and they accommodated. I actually went for Dine LA, but was not given the Dine LA menu. I had to specifically ask my server for it, which was a bit annoying. It made me feel like they were discouraging patrons from Dine LA event all together. I don't believe it was oversight from the server because other people that came in after me were not given Dine LA menus either. Unless you knew Dine LA was happening already, you would not hear anything from the server or the restaurant. Why participate in the event if you're not going to hand out the menu at all? Weird.
Other than that, the food was great, it was prepared fresh, portions were generous. Ordered a salad, sushi, seafood pasta, and steaks - all wonderfully prepped by the kitchen. The server was professional and attentive, but did not catch his name."
