Cleaner and nicer ambience than the Red Lobster near to my house, but I guess I'm just not that into Red Lobster. I had a cheddar biscuit to start - fresh & nice. Then I had a bowl of mussels for my meal. It had a nice flavor broth with garlic and sun-dried tomatoes, but the texture of the mussels... More

We did not book and decided to wait at the bar and enjoy a drink. Amazing cocktail selection. We waited 30 minutes. The food was very good- I had the lobster, prawn,scallop and mussel linguine. We finished off the meal with key lime pie and the chocolate cake - both so good. Great food at decent prices!

After an accidental walk in after a mammoth 15 km walk around NYC we stumbled into the Times Square Red Lobster and realised we were in one of those weird chain restaurants you find in the USA. We were so hungry that we decided to go ahead and found that it's really a 'Seafood for Dummies' or people who've never... More

Loved the service from the moment we stepped into the restaurant. And, the food was even better than the service! Our waitress recommended a 2lb lobster for me and it was perfect.

We came here, as we love the cheesy biscuits they give you before your meal and the food is always great value for money. On arrival, the restaurant was very busy, but we were told a table would be about an hours wait so we took a seat at the bar and ordered drinks. Well 30 minutes later, our table... More

We went her on the evening of my daughters birthday we were not massively hungry so my wife and I shared a starter and we had one of the 'feast' meals to share as our main. The food was just ok, nothing great, they did not really 'push' the lobster side of things. They forgot my daughters salad and gave... More

Our service Nikki is really great. We were rushing for our flight back home and upon knowing, she helped to ensure our food is served promptly and within the time we need to leave. The lobsters are great. However lobster bisque is not as good as i expected. But still we enjoyed our meal there very much.
