Lobster Box, Bronx (City Island)

Most visitors to New York City tend to stick to Manhattan, with a smaller number going to Brooklyn and Queens. Meanwhile, Staten Island and the Bronx see relatively little in the way of tourism and business travelers, which is a shame, as both boroughs have some real finds, including City Island in the Bronx. City Island is more like a seaside village than a part of the biggest cities in America. A number of seafood restaurants can be found here, including a place called the Lobster Box.

Located right on the water, the Lobster Box affords diners some incredible views of Long Island Sound, which more or less ends near City Island. The restaurant is spacious, with a number of tables and booths in each room of the place. The menu features all kinds of seafood, including catfish, salmon, sole, swordfish, and tuna, as well as several steak, chicken, and pasta dishes for those who do not eat seafood.

Me and my husband went for dinner at Lobster Box. When we arrived, we were seated. They brought us water and bread. we looked at the menu andwaited for the waitress or anyone to come to us and ask for our order. 15-20 minutes later we were still waiting. The waitresses passed and looked at us, but no one came to us. The restaurant wasn't even busy. After waiting so long, we got up and left. No one asked anything. We would never return to this restarant and we will tell everyone we know about our experience.

Yep, that would be the service you get at the Lobster Box. The host and wait staff have no people skills and customer service is not in their vocabulary.
