Great quirky place, food was excellent.
The food was quite good, however the doors in this restaurant don't seem to work. We had a really cold draft coming in from outside the whole dinner plus the toilet door was jammed open leaving wash hand basins and mirrors in full view of the dining area.
Food OK, crab cakes stodgy but tacos said to be good; grain salad stodgy and too salty, fish pie over salty, lobster tails good but neither of us wanted them swimming in butter, makes them difficult to eat with butter sloshing about. Fries good and crispy. Service somewhat erratic, it wasn't busy but took ages. Unlikely to go back.
First time and enjoyed thoroughly . A relaxed venue for meeting friends
Amazing food - so much flavour packed into everything. Service was friendly and fun, really enjoyed the atmosphere.
Service was poor. My cocktail got spilt in delivery and I had to ask for a replacement.
Food was average at the very best. Dry bread, chewy lobster
The food was okay but waited 25 mins for the bill.
Great food and service in a great environment. All the dishes we had were delicious and we ate in a tapas style with loads of different stuff as it came out of the kitchen. Really helpful that we ordered a dish of that came with three tacos and they asked if we wanted to order an extra one so we could have two each.
This was our first visit and maybe our only visit to Bob's Lobster. The cocktails were really good. The service was friendly but. just. so. slow. The food was fine (but just fine, not Wow) and there is a proper mismatch between the portion-size, the venue, and the prices. Fun idea, poor execution. It wasn't unpleasant, but I wouldn't recommend it.
I booked through Opentable approximately 20 minutes before arriving at Bob's Lobster, and although they did not have our reservation they were able to accommodate us at one of the high tables. Nice ambience, staff friendly, pleasant and accommodating. The food came quickly (fish finger sandwich and lobster tail, both with fries) and although portions were on the small side, they were delicious. One mouthful of the lobster tail was undercooked and wine was expensive at £8 per 125ml glass (although G&T was reasonable at £5.50). Overall a very pleasant dining experience.
Wow! Great flavours shame we couldn’t eat it all! Definitely recommend Bobs
Delicious food! Great flavours in the fried white bait and squid. The lobster tail and claw was delicious.
The lobster was raw so had to ask for it to be cooked. No apologies given. Quite pricey considering we got 4 plates as suggested and 2 drinks and it came up to over £80. Wouldn't go back again
Had an enjoyable evening at Bob's lobster but felt that it was overpriced. The lobster Mac n cheese was really great and I would have that again if I went but the £20 lobster and crayfish roll was particularly disappointing and a bit soggy. Not a patch on B&L lobster roll. The mussel fries were tasty but the high food prices alongside the house wine being £25 a bottle I just thought it didn't quite work for me. However, ambience really nice and staff also very nice.
Food ok but mostly lukewarm
And quite pricey for what it is
The food was really good, Scallop, prawns and lobster tails, the wine was great too. Some ironing on the service is needed but overall a lovely experience. really liked the restaurant decoration in the arches of London Bridge station. Will be back
Birthday - we were give complimentary glasses of sparkling wine which was very nice! Also very kind to our children.
Oyster happy hour was fantastic... but the rest of the menu was quite pricey for the portion size. Overall really tasty though but I'd definitely only go back for oyster happy hour.
Great seafood! The lobster and crayfish Mac and cheese is a must!
The food was seriously overrated. And prices were exorbitant and poor value.
Superb and classy. Delicious food and great service. A fave
Great food, decent service, good prices. The selection of dishes were good, catering for many tastes. The drinks list is varied and reasonably priced. Weakest dish we had was 'fries with eyes'. Didn't come with enough aioli and our request for more was forgotten. The window seat table by the VW camper is a little out of the way so service was a little haphazard. Overall. A great meal and I'd come back again. Had more dishes than OT allows a person to add...
BOB’s rocks. Great atmo, great food, great staff. London has a new must-visit on the foodie scene
Average food and very very slow service (and it wasn't even busy)
One of London best kept secret. In love with the food!!
We had a family dinner together and wanted to try out Bobs lobster which had been recommended by a blogger. We were not disappointed although it was difficult to enjoy the whole experience since it was so hot.
The cocktails were good, the starters as tapas were delicious as were out lobster rolls. The lime desert was perfect. The prices are reasonable although definitely not inbred bargain. side
The staff was kind and helpful. Will go back if in the area again. This time we drove from Kensington which almost took an hour.
Love it. Delicious
This is a Hidden restaurant under the train tracks just outside of London Bridge Station. The decor inside is quite basic with high exposed concrete ceiling and a large Bob's lobster van taking up 1/3 of the restaurant.
The menu was relatively limited although was clear about allergens which is good. The food is tapas style so best to order 3 to 4 dishes each. I was expecting to be able to order a whole Lobster but the nearest you could get was a Lobster tail only.
The service was excellent, staff were friendly and helpful. They had good knowledge about the menu.
The food was well presented, especially the Lobster tail. The only main issue with the food was the amount of oil and butter everything was cooked in. Every dish from Lobster to scallops to even broccoli came coated in oil and I felt my arteries tighten. There is just no justification for this level of oil to be used on everything and it meant I left disappointed and feeling slightly sick.
Nice staff,funky venue ,nicely presented food in meagre portions.
Crab roll tasted of lettuce not crab. Mac n cheese bland.
Would not return
Love it. Absolutely fantastic. Shall revisit many times
Perfect for a 20th birthday - would do it again.
My daughter loved it
We love Bob’s - it’s casual but has an edge of fine dining, great wine & cocktails..... almost too cool for us 50 somethings 😊 the tortilla chips with guacamole are to die for 😋 I’ve had fried oysters, eggs Benedict, fish finger sandwich..... On different visits 😛 All delicious
Waiter suggested very good dishes which went well together.
Really disappointing main course selection and very over priced for tiny portions
We had a relatively pleasant dinner at Bob’s lobster. We went because of the recent FT review. The service was great. The food however did not meet our (maybe too high) expectations. The tuna tacos were very good but not as good as Barrafina starters or tuna tartare. The crab stack was good and so was the lobster bun. The Mac n cheese lobster was too heavy for us and we did not really enjoy it. The brownie for dessert was average. Overall relatively good food if you do not have great expectations. Service was really good though.
Would say it is not a worth at its price. Have been anticipating for the lobster tail but turns out this is the disappointing point where it can be described as flavourless and yep— just dont worth 22 pounds. Though the lobster bisque tasted quite good.
amazing food slightly let down by inconsistent and disorganised service-we had to chase for one dessert even after they had brought out the other; we were then charged double for that dessert! It was still worth it for the delicious lobster roll and tuna tacos; the seafood tower was also impressive both in looks and quality- the seafood was as fresh as could be.
Whilst all the staff were amazing, I felt service was slow and food really did not taste fresh, or that great. It's disappointing as the place could have great potential.
Great food but service leaves a lot to be desired.
First time going, was recommended by a family friend!
Ordered quite a variety, food came out looking superb!
However the lobster bisque was a little cold but other than that everything was great!
It’s not your ordinary lobster/seafood restaurant, definitely an added mix. Super creative, especially the fries with the added chowder.
Food was absolutely delicious! Would definitely go back again if I had the chance and recommend anyone to try it out!
