“Disappointing late night meal”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

When the server suggests you come back on a different night you know they are having issues. We ate there because it was raining when we left the Apollo Theater and we knew we could still get a taxi. Honesty I wish we would have walked down the street.

“Pretty Interior but food sucks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

I went here last weekend and of course what do you expect from a Red Lobster in Harlem?!! The wait is way better than Joe's Crab Shack across the street and the interior is quite beautiful, almost looks like a lounge. The food was horrible and I sent it back. Also my strawberry daiquiri wasn't too tasty either. Maybe another time or for some thing to do to pass time but I wouldn't make this a visit often.

“Take our to your hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014

We wanted something to eat but were exhausted after walking most of the day and going to meetings. We decided to pop into the local Red Lobster in Harlem. Glad we did. We were able to get quick "to go" service from there separate area (a little small but no big deal). The food came quickly and we took it right over to Aloft where we were staying. Food quality was good, so we were able to enjoy a good meal quickly without resorting to fast food. Well done!

“Disappointing, disorganised, overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014 via mobile

Understand this place only opened recently but customer service needs to be addressed.
We were directed upstairs when we arrived, put our names down & were given a buzzer. Once seated we waited about 15minutes for someone to come over, got the feeling none of the staff wanted to serve tourists. Eventually Rebecca came over, explained she was working the otherside of the restaurant but would take care of us. Rebecca was very polite, efficient & professional. Unfortunately the food & atmosphere were disappointing ($97 2 courses, 2 beers) and put us off visiting again.

Average drinks, stopped in late evening and the bar was quiet. Convenient and close to the hotel on 125th Street
