Me, my wife and another couple went to Lobster recently and it was a disaster. The place was completely disfunctional. OK, there was a party in the street, and they had a lot more customers in the tables outside than their usual. We were fine with it and maybe waiting a little longer. But after one full hour, not even our appetizers had arrived. We complained, and they miraculously arrived. Another 40 minutes went by, and our main courses wouldn't arrive, although every table around ours was being served. At one point, a clueless waitress comes with one dish (we were four) asking "fish???". Well, it turns out all of us had ordered seafood, and the girl didn't know what it was that she was bringing. Then the waitress that had taken our orders comes and angrily barks that this was our order - still no mention of the three others. That was it, we called the check and left, after almost two hours, still hungry, and having lost the movie we were planning to watch later. All we got from them was a half-backed apology.

Never more. You only get one chance to make a first impression.

Excellent lamb chops and heavenly desserts! The owners are so friendly, and it has such a wonderful local feel about it. Will definitely be returning.

This was my favorite neighborhood joint for years and I was there easily 2 to 3 times per month. Sadly, in the last year it has gone downhill. At first we thought it was just a fluke, every place has bad nights. But after a few hopeful repeat visits, we are sad to say that we will likely not be going back. The lively bistro atmosphere remains the same, as does the hectic but reliable service. But the food went from great to mediocre. So sad.

I stayed in the hotel Royal next door and got a recommendation. Great steak, good collection of both French and German wines. Simply great place.

A friend came to visit, and we decided to have a late (11 pm) dinner at Lobster. They had no problem serving us that late, in fact others were still eating. The food is simple and delicious French cooking. I had the lamb chops and my friend had the filet. We were not asked how we wanted them cooked, they just came out the way they are supposed to be cooked - medium to rare - with veggies on the side.

We stayed late having countless glasses of wine, and the bill was shockingly low for American standards. I would absolutely go again, we had a great experience.
