City Lobster & Steak serve some really EXCELLENT steaks. You could probably predict that based on its name, but their steaks really are much better than some other more famous steak houses. Also, if you go, try to get Sandra to be your server. She's excellent, funny, knows everything about the menu, and cute as well. Enjoy!

My one and only time here , they seemed to have addressed all of the gripes I just read about ie: hot wet towel to wipe my hands after eating,fast food delivery (1,2,3) ,many eyes on me to see if I was needing anything but not stopping unless they got a nod ( I like attention but not having to swallow good food too fast to say all is well) I did however catch a mistake on my bill that was immediately rectified.This is my post to City Lobster and Steak web site! ""I had the greatest lobster dinner there last night! Thomas and Emiliano attended my every need. The oyster appetizer was very flavorful. The huge 2.5 lb lobster was just so sweet I went through 3 hot butters! And then the cheesecake desert was light and creamy! all washed down by some ice cold Stella Beer. Thank you so much for a most excellent meal before enjoying Janet Jackson down the street at Radio City. Great work ,keep it up and I will make it a point to bring friends next time! ""
PS all with no reservation !

Seafood was so fresh and amazing. Was with a pretty large group and we all had steamed lobster. Also, Had crabcakes to start (im a sucker for good crabcakes). Agree with review below..food was outstanding and the service was very on point. I wouldn't say its fast which is good cause I hate to feel rushed when I'm dining out. Can't wait till I go back..

The RW menu was pretty good for lunch.
We started with the clam chowder, BLT wedge and oysters Rockefeller. Our entrees were lobster roll, angus NY strip and crab cake. The latter was so small it should be an appetizer, not an entree. We had to wait for a long time for our dessert to arrive. The chef is preparing we were told. When we got it, we didn't see why it took so long. We had the red, blue, white shortcake, key lime pie and profiteroles arabica.
The place was not busy at all for lunch on a Saturday.

I ordered a bowl of soup and an order of fried calamari for dinner on an average Tuesday night. After being advised it would take no longer than 45 minutes (they are 3 blocks away), it took 1.5 hours.
Not to mention, the fried calamari was colder than the cup of Sprite that came with it. I wouldn't feed it to my dog.
I'd highly recommend avoiding.

I had a very bad experience at this restaurant. I was not only overcharged on my credit card!!. I Received bad service, Small portion size for the outrageous price & the food was mediocre. Manager & staff are very rude. Brought us wrong orders. We signed one bill for 96 dollars after they fixed their error we were charged on our card way over our original amount!!. FRAUDS!! STAY AWAY! AS FAR AS YOU CAN Not Worth The Trip & Price
I eat out all the time and praise good service & food but this place is terrible

Me and my Daughter dined at City Lobster this past Friday night. I had walked past the restaurant numerous times but never had ventured in. Our server was very charming and attentive, and drew our attention to the pre-fix menu. This menu was continued through restaurant week and was a great deal with three courses for only $35. My Daughter and I enjoyed the delicious menu with the Sea Scallops Entree being the highlight recommended why our waiter. The whole experience was pretty enjoyable except for the multiple arguments we noticed going on in the front of the restaurant amongst the management and employees . Me and my daughter tried ignoring the situation but the fights continued to get louder ruining our meal. I was shocked that the situation was not taken off the floor and bothered by the way the employees were being treated. Overall the food was great for a great price. However the experience was uncomfortable, I would not dine at City Lobster again but perhaps would order take out.
