A gem of a restaurant! Highly recommend! Love the staff, food is always delicious and the decor fantastic!
Really good customer service, excellent food & lovely buzzy atmosphere if not bit noisy! However I would return. Food is really top notch. I had scallops to start and the waiter had to pour over the sauce in front of me which was nice touch as it really brought the whole thing to life. Lobster for main- with a gorgeous salad and truffle fries. My husband had oysters which he said were fab. For main lobster linguine and you could really taste the lobster. It was delicious. For dessert we shared s chocolate bomb special. The waiter poured warm choc sauce over it in front of us and we watched it melt - it was again great to be part of the process, and it was insanely delicious. We sat at window on high seats/ very comfy. However if I had to make one tiny complaint it was that the chairs were very squeaky. Easily fixed hopefully.
We went to Lobstar for my Birthday dinner last Saturday evening. It was a brilliant experience, the food was delicious, service was excellent, the ambiance was cosy but a bit noisy. Overall we had a lovely evening. I loved the tuna poke and the elderflower and mint mocktail. Both so delicious.
We celebrated my friends 50 birthday here and Lobstar is outstanding. Amazing food and service. Tiny little place and they handled pur rowdy crowd of seven perfectly. Everyone raved about the steak and lobster. My husband loved his lobster ravioli. We were all visiting Dublin from the states for a week and my friends said by far was their most favorite dining experience. Thank you for taking such good care of us and if ever backto Ireland you are on top of our list! Thank you!
Excellent food, lovely welcome from staff also. The Mussels in lobster bisque is simply delicious. Have recommended this restaurant to a lot of my friends already and some have already made booking. Looking forward to going back again.
Excellent food, beautifully presented and served. An great neighbourhood restaurant that is individual and exciting.
A lovely small 'hidden gem' in Monkstown, highly recommended.
Lobstar is a regular haunt for us and it never disappoints. A great addition to Monkstown!
The food was amazing and service was outstanding. The space is very cozy and at the same time very professional. The restaurant is definitely a fine-dining experience. We were served by Veronica, she was super nice and super professional. 5 star for the place, service, food and the people.
Third time here, first time for lunch. Food was delicious and service was impeccable.
Excellent all round Food and Service.
I arranged my sisters birthday at Lobstar on Sunday and it was such an enjoyable evening thanks to Veronika and her amazing team.
Amazing every time! Would highly recommend it!! Staff are so friendly and the food is unreal.
Superb authentic cooking and exceptional service,
Fabulous first meal in Lobstar. Great food and attentive service. Can’t wait to go back and recommend to friends and family.
Absolutely gorgeous. Amazing food the ahi tuna and lobster ravioli were fantastic
This is a hidden gem. Wife and I had a perfect date night here. You’ll not be disappointed with the food or the service.
Excellent night out. Oysters and Lobster were delicious but other choices as well. Service was fantastic. Desserts were lovely and the petit four was a nice surprise. A really great night out.
It was a year since we last visited Lobstar and I'd forgotten how fantastic it is. The quality of the food, the taste and presentation is all excellent and service is super. I am a chef, private caterer, health-chef teacher and super fussy about all afore mentioned. It is a very 'rare' moment that I leave a restaurant totally trilled by flavours, execution of dishes, service etc and much to my husbands delight - Lobstar delivered.
Well done team Lobstar, we wont leave it a year until we next visit you, but maybe a couple of weeks.
It is actually very rewarding to write this short review. I truly believe in giving 5* credit where 5*credit is due.
I know Lobstar is Husband and Wife team, but they have also employed friendly professional service staff. You get a warm and intimate welcome, I think, often only found in family run establishments and when owners actually work on site. Thank you Lobstar, Maggie Lynch
Amazing food, quality and tase is exceptional,service is extremely gracious and faultless. Truly an experience!
One note for improvement-place is tiny so a bit squishy! Wine list a little limited and could be better if slightly more chilled (noticed same on last visit too). Would not stop me returning I should add!!
Great menu. Plenty of fresh sea food, a great variety. Good wine list and excellent service. Will be back
Great interesting food, served beautifully, excellent staff, really friendly buzz in the room and everyone seemed to be having great fun! we had a really excellent evening. Only downside - our table was not great - too near the Loo and the service area so book early and ask for the front of the room!
Food & service are excellent. Venue is small and can get a bit noisy. Wine list is very pricey and it's hard to find anything reasonable which takes a little gloss off of it.
I enjoyed my first meal in Lobstar last Friday evening. It is a lovely venue, quiet with lovely music played discreetly in the back ground. The service was excellent, informative and helpful. The food was delicious and importantly for me they had organic wine. THey also had a good quality wine in general which appealed to my Dad who is a wine buff and was pleasantly surprised with everything.
Always a favorite when back in Ireland. They do a great early bird menu with usually a good fish dish but this time I went with Lobster which was super fresh and tasty. The restaurant is lovely and cosy, service is always great and food delicious! If you want good seafood in Ireland go here!
As ever , a great dining experience at Lobstar . The menu continues to offer excellent choice and beautifully cooked fish of the day ; and the fantastic lobster and oysters always delight . Front of house is as always congenial, friendly , professional in every way . Wine list just gets it right : not too long , excellently chosen . Zolt, Veronika , and the team of Marco and co just keep doing lovely things . Great to see Lobstar always busy and vibrant .
Food is good but the early bird menu dictates you pay supplements if you want lobster!
Excellent food, something different every time. Really nice and capable staff. Highly recommended!!!
Best lobster ever - the service is fantastic and the food superb
Incredible little restaurant. From start to finish all 4 of us could not have been happier with each course. The presentation of the food and the service were top notch. Will definitely go again.
This was our second visit and every bit as good as the first. Delicious food, excellent service, relaxed surroundings.
The food was fantastic as always. A firm favourite is the lobster ravioli. The service was excellent. Veronika is a warm and welcoming host. We hope to return many times.
Best restaurant in the South Dublin area. Great food, friendly attentive service (who remember you), and great atmosphere
Brilliant food as always. excellent service. We've been there so many times and never disappointed.
Amazing Staff Really friendly
food was delish
will defo be back 👌😊
Lovely little restaurant in Monkstown. Great welcome and service from the team. The food, mainly fish, though some beef/veggie options, was excellent. We had scallops and open mushroom ravioli to start, shared a black dover sole for mains and finally chocolate mouse and custard tart. Slightly pricey but not really in Dublin price terms. Absolutely recommend this restaurant for couples and groups up to 4, think too tight for larger parties.
We’ve been to lobster many times , and each and every time the entire experience is as fabulous as the 1st. The food & the friendly staff and warm ambiance makes for a very special dining experience,
Good was incredible. Lovely staff. Really enjoyed the dinner.
We had a fabulous night in Lobstar on Friday night. We arrived at 6pm and we were made to feel so welcome. The service was outstanding. We decided to have the early bird special scallops ceviche and then Lobstar ravioli. Both were excellent. It was one of the best nights we have had in a long time.
There were four of us and we had 3 courses, Starters and Mains were excellent - probably the dessert was a little too much. Fish was delicious for mains and starters choices was quite varied and all delicious. Definitely going back - wine selection could be a little better in the €35 to €45 range.
