If you want a quiet environment, this is not the place for you with the hard tile ceiling and hard walls which magnify the sound. At times, it was difficult carrying on a conversation across the table. However, the menu is the same as upstairs, the service is the same, and the quality is an exact mirror image of the experience upstairs. We arrived early for our reservation on a busy Friday night and we were able to be seated in quick order which was an unexpected treat. Save room for the banana crème pie as the best way to finish your experience.

Took my sister and my niece here for their birthday dinners. It’s my sister’s favorite place. We had a wonderful dinner (fried lobster!), truffle fries, creamed spinach and wine - all delicious. The service was very good and of course, you can’t beat the ambiance.

Great evening of dinner. We got there early (light traffic?) & and enjoyed drinks at the upstairs bar waiting for Chops Lobster Bar to open. Very comfortable bar scene up there. Got a text our table was ready and headed downstairs. AJ was our waiter - he did an excellent job with great service and advice. Lots of things on the menu, along with the specials. We were in a beef mood that night. My wife and I split AJ's recommended crab cake app - outstanding! We also split the wedge salad - they are big & delicious with cold plates! For our entree we decided to have the Porterhouse steak for 2 with mushrooms. Done to perfection for us. We passed on desert - too full at that point. Maybe we will start with desert the next time when we come in September.

While it was an expensive night out, it was an outstanding meal. More than a regular steak and sea food restaurant, Chops Lobster Bar makes the entire event special. Our waiter AJ was charming as well as attentive and knowledgeable. The interior was moody but not too loud and not too dark. The tempura fried lobster tail was delicious and memorable. I look forward to celebrating milestones at Chops Lobster Bar in the future.

cool place, but the price point is very high and the food just didn't justify the cost. Also, I made the mistake of getting my lobster flash fried per the recommendation of the restaurant. I felt it ruined a beautiful piece of lobster and was a bit "Long John Silverish" for my taste. The Optimist has far better seafood and KR Steak is far better for meat. Ambience is old school Buckhead, which I dig. But now that we have Little Alley Steak and others, you can get a vibrant Buckhead vibe at other places for less money.

If I could eat lamb chops everyday, I’d be dining at Chops Lobster Bar everyday. That, along with the Caesar salad with anchovies, is my favorite meal. Tonight, we shared the lyonnaise potatoes and they were delicious. The meal was capped with creme brûlée for dessert. I asked John, our server, if the restaurant offered wheel barrow service! In addition to offering to help “carry us out,” he and his serving partner provided us with outstanding service. While I’ve visited Chops Lobster Bar before, I believe this was my favorite outing at this restaurant. The friendly smiles from the hostesses upon entering and leaving helped in making us feel special. Kudos to the restaurant staff!

A really great Service Team! We were seated promptly and greeted by our Waiter upon being seated. Offered a white napkin instead of the black one as I had on white pants---berry appreciated. Everything we ordered was creative and flavorful.

The bussers were very slow to remove dirty plates and glassware preparing for the next course. Our server didn’t help things along by picking them up himself, which gave me the impression he felt it wasn’t his job. Food was great, server knowledgeable but overall not the Wow I wanted for my business client.

3 of us were celebrating a birthday The service and the food were outstanding and out of all restaurants in the Buckhead Life Group this is my favorite. The restaurant was totally full and the noise level was frightening. This was the only negative of the evening.

We asked for water. After waiting 10 minutes, we got it upon second request.
Wait staff brought an appetizer to our table that was not ours.
The lobster was very good, but some parts were tough.
The fish fish was prepared well and tasted great, but it was tough and not flaky .. as expected.
The desert was not as good as I have had at other, lower priced restaurants.
Overall, disappointing.

Chops Lobster Bar is a very aesthetically pleasing restaurant. I ordered the special entree of pork belly with balsamic reduction. Unfortunately, I had to send it back as it way overdone, very difficult to eat and I finally gave up. I love pork belly and know how delicious it is. I gave my friend a small piece and she said the same, so when another portion (what I sent back they replaced) came out, it was better. The reduction along the edge of a piece was very nice, but the meat itself was tough and hard.

I have eaten previously at upstairs and downstairs and have loved both, but this visit was not, I think, up to Chops standard. The rest of the food was OK. Service is always excellent.

The name Chops / Lobster Bar” can be confusing since it’s actually two different colocated restaurants under common management. We went to the check in desk for “Chops” by mistake instead of “Lobster Bar”. The young ladies at the check I desk were pretty snippy to tell us that we were in the wrong place.

When we arrived downstairs at Lobster Bar for a 5:30 reservation there were no servers available to seat us.

Both of the above are very atypical for this restaurant chain.

Once seated our meal was excellent and so was the service.

Upon being seated, we were asked for our choice of beverage. My sister who I invited to dinner picked up her wine glass and there was lipstick all over the rim of the glass. The ledge between our seating area and raised seating area behind us was covered in dust. In other words, the setting and surrounding area had not been properly cleaned nor checked before seating. While waiting for our meal, a light fixture fell from the barrel ceiling, nearly missing a young child on the other side of the restaurant. Service was good, food was good, however, the doubt of cleanliness was constantly on our minds throughout the entire service. Also, we paid close attention to the "dress code" mentioned on the website - that was not the case with several diners who came in t-shirts and jeans. Having dressed appropriately, we felt that this restaurant was a "B" choice for those of us staying at the St. Regis. We are not snobbish bores - however we do expect to get what we pay for and the cost outweighed the cleanliness of the service and facility.
