    Wonderful Connecticut Lobster Roll. The raw tuna and avocado appetizer was very good and very fresh. My husband loved the lobster bisque. Very good service.

    The lobster rolls were very small and not the best I had ever had. They were also very expensive. The soft shell crabs on the salad greens were better. Good Salty Dog. Fair Bloody Mary. Overpriced.

    Happy hour now ends at 5 pm (used to be 6 pm). Menu has changed with price increases ($30+ for a lobster roll). Still very good food, great servers, and great atmosphere.

    Very high cost for lackluster food. The lobster fried rice was very good, but the Maine lobster roll was drenched in mayo, the lobster bisque contained not a bit of lobster, the entrees arrived at the same time as the appetizer and they opted to sell their entire supply of key lime pie to an outside customer rather than retaining a sufficient amount for their dining customers. There are plenty of places out there with better food and better value.

    Service and ambiance are great; food was tasty except that the lobster in both dishes was overdone and rubbery. When your restaurant has Lobster in the name, I feel like you ought to be able to prepare it properly!

    Everything was amazing! Connecticut lobster roll--5 star. The favor and texture of the bisque was amazing but did not have lobster chunks. Normally this would be a minus but the flavor as so good I didnt care. Lobster shells with bacon was best I have ever had by a lot. This place is 5 stars all the way. My only negative, which is super minor, is that the atmosphere is a little casual for the quality of the food.

    We ate outdoors, so can’t be helpful about noise level. But all was excellent and I definitely will want to go back. Maybe on a less busy day, as the traffic and parking situation on a beautiful Saturday afternoon was brutal.

    Everything took forever and it wasn't that busy. Lobster benedict was not hot and the lobster was over cooked and rubbery. My husband had the maine Lobster roll. Not great. Everything seemed as if it was just slapped on the plate and sat on the counter waiting to be served. The portions were meager and the prices steep. Staff tried delivering food to wrong tables all around us. The place seemed so unorganised. We did eat on the patio on a beautiful afternoon - that was a plus and people watching is always fun in Highland Park Village. Go for a glass of wine and an app.

    I have been here several times, but this time I wasn't as impressed. We sat outside, which is lovely, but the food wasn't what any of us expected. My guests ended up not being into lobster, a problem at a lobster restaurant, but the menu offers several non-lobster items. This was the time to try them: the fries were good; the fish and chops we decent, but didn't rock anyone's world; the chicken and rice was fine; and the fish tacos were good. But the real problem was that I ordered the lobster bisque and there was not a single ounce of lobster in it. *sigh* Restaurants struggle in that spot, and it's a bit worrisome for them since the other restaurants in the HP Village were packed and Yo Lobster was nearly empty. They need to get their food up to par-- innovative and delicious food that no one can get elsewhere. They do a great job with their cocktails, by the way, especially their frozen ones. But the food needs an overhaul... and please serve an abundance of lobster... live up to the name of your restaurant.

    Chewy lobster that wasn’t the prime tail parts-more of the body parts. Manager talked to us and told us he told the cooks not to overcook the lobster-duh! No refund/discount. Have eaten here several times-this was the worst

    My husband and I were sad to see that the menu had changed from the original options and that prices had gone up. We have eaten at Yo Lobster 5-6 times in the past and always had a good experience, but it was different this time, sadly in a bad way. I ordered the trout, which tasted very fishy. Our cocktails were also expensive but not very good. We have loved coming to Yo Lobster, but we sadly may not come back after what turned out to be an overpriced meal with mediocre food. We never mind paying for good food and drinks, but this wasn’t worth the money! We are so sad!

    Went for my Dads 67th bday and immediately discovered they didn’t have high chairs or boosters for my 11 month old. They didn’t even have an explanation which is weird to me. The food was good. Felt rushed by server some as he kept asking to take plates away that weren’t empty and then brought check really early and then even took receipt with tip while we were still seated, we were there early so it wasn’t like he was getting off. Anyways, don’t think I will go back

    We were terribly disappointed that they could not serve lobster rolls, not because they were out of lobster, but because they were out of rolls to serve them on. This seems like a really bone headed reason!
