Great evening, superb food, warm welcome, excellent service.
Only negative is the icy cold draft of air periodically when the door opens! A small quibble.....
Overall a great evening: thank you
What a phenomenal place to each - DELICIOUS food, beautiful presentation and delightful staff. I absolutely love it here.
Lovely food and buzzing atmosphere. Really enjoyed our visit
Reasonable food but not amazing. Nice staff/service. Small room which can be quite noisy
Simply an absolutely gorgeous restaurant in the heart of Monkstown Village. From their professional and friendly service to their delicious food it’s a restaurant worth visiting again and again. Really top notch 👌🏼
My wife and I had dinner.
To start, we both had the pan fried scallops with smoked Jerusalem artichoke purée, carrots, dill, black olives. It was perfect.
For main, my wife had the lobster ravioli, which was “open ravioli” unusually, but was delicious and I tried some. My wife had a glass of Rhône rose, which was ok. (preference would usually be a Provence rose)
I had the ultimate surf and turf with the beef fillet and lobster tail for main course. Fantastic, tasty and decent portion of beef. I had a red Rioja with it.
For dessert, my wife had the French Custard Cake, which was sinfully good. I had the chocolate mousse.
Overall, the food was excellent. Wine list was a bit disappointing. The venue is tiny and sitting near the door would be very cold in winter but a move was offered and snapped up. We will go back as the food is so good.
An amazing meal! Attentive staff, fantastic menu, a great evening
Lovey setting, excellent food and incredible service. It’s small intimate and well worth a visit. Just be aware they don’t serve beer so as long as you like wine like we do it is perfect.
Gorgeous food, generous portions, staff so so lovely, very relaxing experience!
Excellent overall experience, lovely scallops to start, followed by delightful lobster for two and cheese plate to finish. Great and attentive service, lovely people.
Recommend. Food, service, value was all excellent. Dessert fantastic also.
I will be back for sure.
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
