    Whiskey ginger cocktail and oysters were the only things worth it from my meal. $30 for a small lobster roll and fries (though delicious) just ain't worth it. Fish and chips only come with one piece.

    The lobster rolls may be tiny, but each component is made with he highest quality ingredients that you quickly forget the size. Buttery, toasted potato bun + light, chunky filling makes an ideal roll

    Start with some oysters and margarita (my fave in nyc) get the lobster roll, and end with a blueberry creme brule and ice cream sandwich. Yes, both desserts. This is a place where you don't hold back!

    Fried clams (whole belly) are outstanding. Lobster roll is pricey but good. Clam chowder? More like potato soup. Meh. The real winner - the Arnold Palmer. Best I've ever had.

    It may be Ed's Lobster Bar, but we love the fried Ipswich clams. They're juicy and nicely briny, with a clean crunch. So good you probably won't even need the accompanying lemon or tartar sauce!

    They have unique seafood favorites like lobster meatballs. You can't go wrong with the classic lobster roll, though, which is served with fries and Ed's pickles. Read more

    Serving lobster steamed, grilled, broiled, in burgers, pasta, pies and rolls, Ed’s is the place to come for lobster in New York. We tried the lobster roll paired with a fresh white wine – delicious!

    Everyone comes for the lobster rolls. I thought they were overpriced ($30) compared to Lobster joint which is much more affordable ($17) for just as much meat. All in all a good lunch spot

    If they're on special, try the $4 slider. It's a bacon-wrapped battered deep fried oyster on a twee little bun with lettuce, tomato and mayo. Three or four bites of deliciousness. You're welcome.

    Lobster rolls and oysters here are great, but I had the pan seared scallops last night and they were the best thing I've eaten in ages. Try it!

    Great first experience. Mussels with the lobster broth was some of the best mussels I ever had. Lobster ravioli was really good. Can't wait to come back to try more things.

    If you're looking for a delicious lobster roll you should choose here. And their schimp cocktail is also good. But a little bit expensive.

    This is my favorite restaurant of all time! Start with something off the raw bar. Then get the Lobster Roll with fries on the side. The pickles are amazing. Wash it all down with a Kwak beer.

    Their lobster roll, served with a pile of near-perfect fries, is our pick for one of the best in the city. Don't miss it!

    Lobster bisque, calamari, mussels are all good. The Cesar salad has so much Parmesan and crouton I don't even know if it's good or bad

    Skip the lobster roll and go for the broiled and/or steamed lobster. It is the best value. Delish soups as well. Finish off with the blueberry creme brûlée.

    The lobster roll is plentiful of chunky lobster meat in mayo and chive garnish crammed in barely split butter-brushed bun; includes nice addition of crunchy fries and pickle on the side. Read more

    Great place, but after having Luke's, it's hard to pay the $20+ for the lobster roll here when I love what Luke's does. Ed's is heavy on the mayo, fwiw. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Try their lobster roll...you can't go wrong. Or get their clam linguine if you want something other than lobster.

    After a long day of shopping in SoHo or a long day at work, be sure to stop by Ed's Lobster Bar for NYC’s best lobster roll and a spicy 901 chili-flake margarita or sweet 901 blueberry margarita.

    Best lobster roll in the city hands down, and you can add some cold water oysters to that stellar Cesar but don't forget the lobster ale

    Get the lobster meatballs if they're offering them (wed and sat usually) but make sure you have someone to share them with. Also try the oyster sampler.

    Ed's Lobster Bar concept expands to it's third location on one of the best eating blocks in the city. Clean. Fresh. Inviting. Impeccable food. Order anything. Be happy.

    The Lobster Ravioli is AMAZING! The sauce just melts in your mouth. I prefer the Ravioli over the Lobster Rolls. Give it a try.

    Don't even bother with the small Lobster Roll, go for Ed's sized, and make sure you have his world famous pickles. They're a perfect compliment.

    Been a couple times already. Lobster roll is ok but prefer Luke's. Didn't care for the lobster pot pie. Fish & chips were good. Oysters were delicious with good selection.

    The lobster roll is one of the best you can find in the city, if you want to eat pasta try the lobster ravioli.

    Love the lobster roll and the linguini and clams is my fave in the city. The bread crumbs in the sauce is the special ingredient. YUM!

    Try the Fried Ipswich clams-a pile of the fat clams, fried in a light, crisp cracker coating. Tartar sauce with chopped pickles comes on the side, but you hardly need it
  • Nikolai Y.
    Lobster roll or lobster ravioli? Depends if you want hot or cold. Both are excellent. Also very good for champagne & oysters.

    Quality not on par w/ pricey bill. Clam chowda-watery & bland w/1 clam; Lil' oyster-masked by taste of bacon in cold, limp slider bun; fried calamari-overcooked & rubbery; Fries-best of lot. A No-Go!

    The bisque, the roll, and the ravioli are excellent. Definitely a must if you're in the mood for lobster.

    Lots of tempting options, but if it's your first time stick with the lobster roll. It's (arguably!) the best thing on the menu!

    If its a choice between the Lobster Roll and the Lobster burger, go w/the roll. You can ask to replaced the fries w/salad

    Eggs with lobster are a MUST! Grilled lobster amazing and great Chardonnay by the glass!

    Avoid sitting at bar on Sundays, woman is super unfriendly. Fish/chips & lobs roll are great but don't sub in side salad, literally just lettuce doused in RW vinegar. Ask roll price, it ain't cheap.

    On Clinton street, ed's OS even better, great wine list and by far the best (and most expensive) lobster roll in NY!
