Food Good Decor Good Service Very good - I am not always a fan of gimmicky restaurants, and while this place is a steal for lobster lovers (20 GBP for a whole one steamed with garlic butter), it's not somewhere likely to become a regular haunt for me. That said, the burger was excellent - one of the best I've had for ages - with tasty moist meat, cooked perfectly, deliciously meting cheese and salty smokey bacon. The little side salad and decent fries were a welcome addition, although I'm still not sure the whole package is worthy of the 20 quid I had to pay. The Mayfair branch's 'put your name down, we'll call you if a table becomes available' system makes for a cold wait in the current weather or a rather frustrating wander around the neighbourhood looking for a place to drink (I've heard the Soho branch offers reservations for groups). We ended up being sent away, only to find ourselves called back just as we were sitting down about to order a drink elsewhere. A few minutes later and we'd have been most annoyed to have missed our slot or had to down our drinks. Still, it all worked out and the four of us were very happy with our dinner, despite the hefty price tag for the burger. Given this is a much better deal for the crustacean lovers out there I would recommend this place if you are all ordering the lobster or the lobster roll, for the meat lovers of London beware. Side note: our Australian waiter made two of our party some of the best coffee (lattes if I recall) they had had in a while, worth asking for instead of their minimal dessert list which we didn't end up needing.
