Went to Lobster Bar last night with a group of eight and the reservation was for 7 PM was made a month in advance. However they did not specify they wanted a table in the back of the restaurant. Therefore we were seated at a half table across from the bar. Being it is Friday the bar was packed and acoustically loud. The waiter we could not understand what he was saying. Next thing you know they switched him out for another waiter.
Drinks were ordered 4 of us had champagne which was Tattinger. Others in our group had cocktails. We had a seafood tower to start made up of lobster, Alaskan crab, ceviche and ginormous shrimps. It was nice you can pick what went into it. Also everyone was given plates with three sauces for the seafood as well as small forks. Before dinner rolls were on the table that I passed on I didn’t want it to get me too full.
For the main course I had the scallops served on a bed of puréed mash potatoes and some tomato pieces. I have never had such a generous portion of scallops but didn’t want to waste them so took home the remaining for later. This was so delicious fresh and flavorful I will come back and order this again on my next visit. My husband had the filet it was beautiful just the way he ordered it.
A lot of sides were ordered corn, tator tots,mashed potatoes,quinoa with kale and asparagus. I am sure they were delicious but I need to stay focused so I could make it to dessert.
I ordered the creme brûlée it came with a ginger biscotti cookie OMG they were both delicious,as well as enormous and the cookie had a spicy kick with that ginger. I wish they sold them by the bag. This restaurant the food is truly exceptional. The decor is beautifully done especially the Art Deco lights that hang over the bar area that I was facing all evening. If you have a memorable occasion to celebrate plan ahead make reservations and go.

About Chef Jeff Pfeiffer:
Pfeiffer was just 12 when he fell in love with food as he joined his father in the kitchen at dinner time while his mother attended night school. Pfeiffer attended the Art Institute of Atlanta on full scholarship, and graduated in June of 2001 with an Associate of Culinary Arts degree. As sous chef at Brasserie Le Coze, a popular Atlanta brasserie, Pfeiffer catapulted his culinary career. From Brasserie Le Coze, Pfeiffer transitioned to Joel, an acclaimed French restaurant in Atlanta, serving as Chef de Partie Poissonier.
Working with world-renowned chefs like Delouvrier, Ripert, Antunes and Donlick were extremely humbling for Pfeiffer. Aside from challenging himself in the kitchen, Pfeiffer always hopes his food pays homage to the great chefs who have mentored him.
Pfeiffer’s good food philosophy? “Stripped down simplicity. There’s something to say for the ingredients speaking for themselves.” Chef Pfeiffer has a passion for serving his community by donating his time and talents to local charities. In his free time, Pfeiffer enjoys spending time with his wife, Mila, and two children, Livia and Liam.
