What is Lombard’s Seafood Grille?
Lombard’s Seafood Grille is really quite casual, given that it’s considered Universal Studios Florida‘s “fine dining” restaurant. Besides the fresh seafood gracing its menu, the centerpiece of the venue is a huge saltwater aquarium in the middle of the dining room – if you have children in your party, ask for a table close by.
The Fisherman’s Wharf area is also home to Lombard’s separate, nearby Wharf Bar, which serves up nautical-themed cocktails (and is practically a full bar), with no reservations needed.

Lombard’s Seafood Grille – OI fun facts
Lombard’s Seafood Grille was originally named Lombard’s Landing. Its exterior replicates the buildings of real-life San Francisco’s famous Fisherman’s Wharf. The interior is designed to have the look of an 1880s laboratory inhabited by a fictitious San Fran-based marine biologist, Louis Lombard. (The name Lombard most likely comes from Lombard Street, another iconic SF landmark.)

We got the cinema spactacular package. Waste of money!! Our waitress was good and very kind, but the staff did not communicate to her that we had the package. When I checked in the hostess said she would note it and tell the server. That did not happen, so when the server brought our bill I showed our pkg tickets. Turns out we could have ordered a few more appetizers and other entrees but didn't because we didn't know.
Not that it mattered much because the food was bland and cold. I had the beef medallions, the veggies were bland and the meat was supposed to have a sauce but didn't. The fingerling potatoes were good though. We ordered calamari with no balsamic but it came with balsamic. Not a huge deal, but when nothing else was as good as expected, it needs to be mentioned. The ravioli came out cold too.
Then there was the cinematic pkg. you walk onto the porch of the restaurant and go to the dessert bar. The desserts were not really that good either. However, my biggest complaint was that I paid extra to have dessert and sit while I watch the show. When we got onto the balcony all the tables were full and when I asked about seating I was told I could sit in the chairs that were set out. How am I suppose to navigate a cup of hot coffee, a plate of dessert, and no table. I could have done that in the park.
We found a place to sit in the back of the porch and created our own table. Then when more people arrived, the staff had to bring out chairs from the restaurant and continue to add them in front of us. So now, we could not see the show. We ended up leaving.
I was lead to believe that we would have a table and a nice place to sit for the show. We had a better view outside the restaurant after we left.
Maybe I could have salvaged something good from the experience if the food at the restaurant had been good, but this was a Complete waste of money.
We got the cinema spactacular package for a birthday/anniversary dinner. Poor service and lackluster food. The lobster bisque was good but everything else was bland or undercooked. I had the beef medallions, the fingerling potatoes were still partially raw, the veggies were bland and the meat was supposed to have a sauce but didnt. My husband had the black n blue salad, he requested no tomatoes...it came with tomatoes.
probably the best sit down place to eat inside the universal studios park, great food, not cheap, but overall worth the price of a good meal,
I had first come to Lombard's in June of 2013 and when I can back to Universal Studios in October, I said we had to eat here.
Both times my friends and I order the white sangria pitcher and it is to die for delicious. Fruity, but not overtly so, it is refreshing and compliments the meal. You may sit outside overlooking the waterfront, or inside is lovely air conditioned, both places are aesthetically pleasing.
I had the spinach artichoke dip appetizer both times and was not let down. Delicious and a nice start to a meal. I went for lunch both times, so did not order dinner entrees. What I have eaten are the following:Lombard’s Burger, Lombard’s Crab Cake Sandwich and the Grilled Asian Chicken Wrap. All delicious! Even better if you pay for the upgrade to sweet potato fries!
Will be going here again in June and hope to have same wait staff and amazing food again!
I have eaten there a couple of times and each time was fantastic. We ate outside on the patio overlooking the lagoon and it was beautiful. The waitress was terrific and pleasant. The drinks, appetizers, and main courses were tasty and good portions. The prices were very reasonable for a theme park restaurant. All was a very pleasant surprise and we go there almost every time we visit Universal.
