This could simply be a case of non existing games. Sadly, the multiplayer isn't as populated as the most regular players want it to be. You could join the official Steam Group and ask in the chat if someone wants to play. That way you should find pretty fast a game.
There are no servers for multiplayer. Games are hosted by one of the players in the group wanting to play. Often times lobbies are setup and filled very fast, not giving an opportunity for you to see an open lobby. If a game is filled up, or playing currently, it will not display as a game for you to join.
Try hosting a game yourself. You'll be surprised how fast you'll get 3 more people to join your game.
Your best bet is to join the Official Steam Group like Nekomancer said. Try to add some people to your friends list that play often. You can host a game then and right click their name in your friends list and invite them to join your game. It will launch their game and put them directly into your lobby.

To add to the very correct statements above, the peak hours for our game are between 12pm and 8pm Pacific US time. This stretches from Central European "primetime" to Western US "primetime."
Knowing that, as well as taking a bit of initiative in the Steam group and/or hosting a game yourself will go a long way!
