Horrid! – This is how bad it is: we had to jump up and scream to get service and check. My wife actually fell inside the restaurant and not a single employee / manager or anyone made an effort to help her or see if she was alright. This place was just a nightmare.
Service, food, wine selection and music…all PERFECT! The staff was quick and attentive, dinner and drinks were delicious, and Quinn and Jukebox are nothing short of amazing! I cannot think of any place I would sooner recommend to friends for a great Friday night out. Lobby at Twelve-Atlantic Station is a winning choice for kicking off the weekend.
Worst place to go – Well I was their recently for Valentine's day 2009, I had dinner reservation for 9pm and didn't get seated until 10:35pm. 2ndly they are unorganize, and rude to everyone. 3rd they ran out of menus for the set price 40.00 dinner just for the holiday, bad food, bad service, and on top of all that the glasses for wine were dirty... I will never recommend that place to anyone, or never go back...
The Worst Thanksgiving Dinner Ever!!!!! – Made reservations for Thanksgiving. $49.00 for buffet. Wow, what a joke. Could have had a better meal at Ihop. Clearly the Manager has no idea what he is doing. Do not waste your money here!
Date Night – I recently went to Lobby at TWELVE for a date night and it was perfect. The atmosphere was intimate and classy. They changed the interior around a little and updated some of the furniture, making it even better! We had a great time enjoying the delicious food and tasty cocktails.
NEVER AGAIN!!! – I made reservations 4 dinner w/ 6 friends. We arrived 2 Lobby @ Twelve where we were seated in the very back of the restaurant ALONE. The lighting & temperature were much darker & colder than the rest of the restaurant..strike 1. Our server greeted us & asked us if we needed drinks. Very optimistic, we all ordered drinks. She placed our order for drinks @ the bar & actually WAITED 4 them to finish instead of coming back & taking our food orders..this took 20 min...strike 2. She came back w/ our drinks & we placed our dinner order. Afterwards, she went MIA again until our food came out!..strike 3. Meanwhile our drinks & water were empty!! When our food arrived we informed her that we needed more drinks & water refills. She went to get the drinks & again we didnt see her 4 another 20 min!!..strike 4. When she came back w/ the drinks she dropped them off & immediately fled the scene w/o asking us how our food turned out!..strike 5. We ate our food & my friends that had problems w/ their food regretfully ate theirs 2. About 20minutes later, the MGR came over 2 ask us about service. Not wanting to get the waiter in trouble we laughed it off & waited 4 our check. Another 20min passed & we flagged down the MGR confessed of the bad service & said we needed our check...strike 6. He apologized & had the server bring us our check. She slammed the check down on the table, rolled her eyes & walked off. That was it!!..strike 7. We went & found the MGR & told him what happened. We had a $300 bill & $50 of it was her gratuity tip!! We couldnt let this happen! The MGR adjusted her tip off our total & sent her back over to collect the money. She was really pis$ed now. It took 1 hr to cash our table out & when we tried to see why, she stood @ the register w/ another waiter & told him 2 stay nearby bcause she may need back up 2 handle these bi$ches!! OMG!! I couldn't believe it. Then her MGR walked over, she asked me why did we say we had bad service...in front of him! SPEECHLESS!
great coupons and great food – Lately I've received $15 off email coupons for Lobby, and have definitely put them to good use. I love going there for lunch - it's sophisticated and classy and, service is quick and the food is good. I've been to dinner a few times and have never been disappointed. Definitely try the duck breast or salmon. You can't go wrong! I really enjoy their bar scene. The bar itelf is chic, and the people are, too. I've gotten into their TWELVE martini lately - a great drink!
Disappointing Christmas Dinner – This was our first time at Lobby. We have eaten at other Concentric restaurants and thought this would be a good choice for Holiday Dinner, so we made reservations for the buffet ($44/person). The food was disappointingly very average and uncreative -- not like their other restaurants. Most bothersome, however, was the absence of many of the advertised dishes, with no comparable substitutions, or apologies. Never saw the crab claws, sprouts with smoked bacon & roast garlic, chicken & watercress soup, the creamy pasta w/ mushrooms and Parmesan, or the assorted rolls (there was choice of one kind of hamburger-type bun). Couldn't believe the green bean casserole was actually the pedestrian "classic" with the fried onions on top. (Not sure if Campbell's soup was an ingredient but wouldn't be surprised.) They added-- perhaps in place of that fancy pasta-- sharp cheddar mac 'n cheese. There were substitutions on the dessert table, too, which included 2 pumpkin offerings. (Staff really needed to freshen up this table-- it was an unappealing mess). The turkey was moist and flavorful, the salmon was fresh, and the bliss potatoes (red peel included) creamy and delicious. Some of the salad greens were a bit slimy, but we picked those bits out and enjoyed the rest. Again, just average. The atmosphere is pleasant contemporary design: casual, cafe-like with all hard surfaces, and consequently with a moderately high noise level. We sat alongside the window and it was very cold, drafty. The service was exceptional (this WAS a buffet, keep in mind!) and the 18% gratuity was conveniently included on our bill-- that, plus a $24 bottle of wine got the TWO of us out the door for just under $145. Merry Christmas.
Not very good – I took my mother there last week and it was not good at all. The service was very slow and the food was not up to par. In the past I have had very good meals there. Maybe it was just a bad night......
Fun, trendy spot, perfect for a girls' night out – Lobby has quickly become one of my favorite "spots" to visit with my girl friends. Service is always impeccable, no matter where you are seated in the restaurant. The atmosphere is modern, sleek, and energetic. This place is great whether you are dining with a big group or with a date. I've tried many of the dishes here, but my favorites are (for appetizers) the tuna crudo, the PEI mussels, and the fried clams. The pizzas are OK -- nothing incredibly special, but still good. Try the pine nut pesto or the italian sausage, and you can never go wrong with the margherita pizza. The entrees here are good, but they may have changed the menu since I last went. I loved the salmon and they used to have an amazing steamed halibut dish that was to die for. Desserts and drinks are delicious here too - extensive, impressive wine list, fantastic, gorgeous cocktails (I recommend the pomegranate mojito). All in all, this is a great place to try -- I would recommend some of the other Concentrics restaurants before this one (like One Midtown Kitchen, Two Urban Licks, Murphy's, Trois), but if you're in the Atlantic Station area, it's worth a visit.
