This Mayfair no-reservation joint, from the Goodman Steakhouse operators, offers no less and no more than what is in the name: grilled lobster, lobster rolls, and burgers, all served with a side of fries and a salad.

When you name your restaurant after what you serve, you’d better do it damn near perfectly. If Burger and Lobster want to add “Martini” to their name, or even “Night Out”, they’d get my vote. They just can’t quite yet add “chips”…

Their eventual fate is to be steamed, or steamed then smokily grilled and served with lemon and garlic butter, chips and salad. Or de-shelled and piled into a divinely buttery brioche hot-dog bun with a lick of wasabi mayo, as brazenly rich as some of our hedge-funded fellow diners…

I went back and had the burger the following day (I do not think I have ever liked a place enough to return the very next day, in 15 years of reviewing). It was terrific, fully benefiting from the recipe of half grain-fed American, half grass-fed British beef…

The question of the burger’s price tag is resolved, to some degree, by its quality and weight: all grass-fed Irish and corn-fed Nebraskan beef, sans filler, each weighs 10oz. It’s a lovely burger…

The restaurant isn’t just a great idea: It’s a winner because of the quality of the food. Even the salad — tomato, lettuce, onion, red and yellow peppers, pickled vegetables — is special: The colors are so vibrant it looks like it’s been Photoshopped…

If you’re looking for value for money, it’s the crustaceans that win every time. The lobster roll – chunks of the meat coated with Japanese-style, egg-yolk-rich mayonnaise, swathed in soft and glossy brioche and topped with a whole claw – would be our recommendation of the three…

Imported Canadian live lobsters are held by the tonne in tanks in the basement. A whole lobster weighing about a kilo can be served steamed or grilled accompanied by drawn butter flavoured with lemon or with lemon and garlic…

The lobster itself was good, cooked through but avoiding the chewiness that often occurs with lobster cooked in British restaurants…

I enjoyed my first trip to Burger and Lobster and will definitely go back. Service was lively, the room was enjoyable and my lobster was perfect. It was a well-proportioned super tasty meal…
