Ed's Lobster Bar
Posted by anonymous on 09/11/2010
Food was O.K. The lobster role was fine but really overpriced, $27? Are you kidding? Lobster it self wasn't so special. Pretty bland. French fry and spicy pickles were O.K. but you can get that any where. The tuna tartar was good but not amazing. We asked for the check but after we were waiting for a while they told us that computer broke down so they couldn't give us check. ( I don't know why they can't just calculate manually. ) We patiently waited another almost over 45min. With this attitude and price with so so food I will never come back to this place again.

We've always wanted Lobster but never had any until our trip to Ed's Lobster Bar. It turned out we'd gone there on a Thursday which was a Whole 1 1/2lb Lobster for $28 day. However my partner and I were a bit worried as we'd never eaten Lobster before and wouldn't have known where to start. The friendly staff explained everything to us and put us at ease about ordering the lobster. So we ordered the Bisque and the Muscles for the starter, and a whole boiled lobster each for the main. The starters were excellent. Full of flavour. Couldn't ask for more. Then came the lobsters... ...wow! One of the staff helpfully showed us exactly how to eat it, how to get the meat out of the claws and knuckles (joints) and then we went to work. It was amazing. Ed, the owner also joined us briefly to give us some eating tips too. Magnificent! As I have already mentioned, the staff were excellent. The atmosphere perfect - not loud but not intimate - it's called "bar" after all, but it was an excellent night which I'll always remember and can't wait to go back again. Full Marks Ed - Thanks for everything!

Steamed Lobster - hot outside, refrigerator cold inside can only mean reheated lobster. At these prices, outrageous. And then, when I complained, the waitress offered to " throw it in the boiling water to heat up." I told her I was willing to wait for a freshly cooked one. The new one was not the size I was charged for...it was much smaller. No apologies from the staff, no visit from a manager. I live around the corner....and I love lobster. I am willing to travel for it...I will not return here.

Lobster Roll was good (not great), but overpriced at $27. Throw in surly & rude bartender (I was eating at the bar) who could barely acknowledge my existence (no greeting, no eye contact, no thank you, no goodbye, no checking on how the food was, and generally seemed put out to have to "wait" on anyone and made me feel like I was bothering him by sitting there ) and you don't have a good combination. The young asian girl prepping oysters in front of me was nice, the only nice thing I can say. I won't be back.

I don't understand why there are so many negative reviews about this place on menu pages when on all the others they are mostly great. Well I enjoyed my meal. Went on a Wednesday had these great lobster meatballs, all i can say is WOW! My friend had a lobster roll, fresh and overstuffed, with probably the best fries in New York. We also split half a dozen tatamagoughi oyster "fresh" is the best description and we had a fried oyster slider each, words cant describe how great they are. It was busy, but the service was very friendly and attentive. All must check this place out.

Service always seems to be slim in this Nolita spot but what it lacks in staff it more than made up in the form of a yummy lobster roll. Hand down best in the city!

For all the foodies out there, stick to Pearl or Mermaid Inn--- Ed your lobster roll is the most bland lobster roll in NYC and over priced. Cute place and great location, I hope you do an overhaul.
