Very cold outside chicken was dry but my partner liked the lobster roll wasn’t worth 70 euro
Very nice food and great service
Food and service excellent.
The food is a little bit pricey, but the main courses are so good that it worth the money!
Fantastic service, they were so enthusiastic about their own food!
Fantastic food, I am already looking to book another table to go back!
Such a great restaurant with outstanding tasty food. Everything is so flavorful!
It’s our favorite place in Monkstown and we already can’t wait to be back!
One of the best meals I've had in ages (and not just because of lockdown!). Every dish was unique, used fresh ingredients, and tasted phenomenal. Sidney was excellent and made us feel at home and choose the right wine to go with our food.
We had the sole, split lobster and seafood linguini and it was all absolutely superb! The sole in particular was delicious. Tarte tatin for dessert is also a must! So good! Wonderful service and lovely atmosphere outdoor dining. Highly recommend!
Absolutley lovely experience, waiters were so lovely and in great humour, it was outdoor dining and it was a lovely setting with great weather. The food was lovely and fresh and tasty and the wine was very refereshing. We will be back :)
We were so happy to be back in Lobstar again. Veronica and all of the staff are so friendly and efficient. The lobster roll and Parmesan fries were excellent, as always. The new chocolate dessert is gorgeous.
Beautiful food and lovely setting for this outdoor dining experience.
Amazing food and great service, will be back for sure!
Love the food, all were fresh and staff were really nice. We were eating outdoors and felt as if we were on a promenade on a Spanish holiday!
An amazing experience from start to finish.
The food was fantastic and the staff were very friendly.
Great seafood, friendly and attentive service, nice outdoor seating (in good weather), would highly recommend!
Lobstar is one of our favorite local spots! The food, service, and ambiance is always excellent! My husband loves the filet with the truffle and parmesan fries or the mash potato and I usually have lobster or the linguine.
Amazing. Generous portions. Knowledgeable staff. Will go back
Fabulous food, service & ambience!
Staff were so welcoming will defo be back!
The tuna poke was divine
Absolutely Fabulous last night and everyone! The staff are amazing and looked after us incredibly well, couldn’t have done more for us.. cushions and blankets and even water for my friends flowers!
The place is tiny, but has a cool atmosphere. I was very excited to dine there because I do love seafood. The oysters I got were the biggest and freshest I've had in years - I was very pleasantly surprised. The staff were really attentive, but without being overly in-your-face. The rest of the party enjoyed their starters of tuna poke and fried calamari - though having tried the calamari myself, I found them over-fried. For the mains most of us got the lobster roll and here is where my biggest disappointment lies: charging 30 quid for half a brioche bun with a little dusting of lobster and a portion of chips is just outrageous. I thought the presentation of the dish was poor and to be honest there was too much bread there in ratio to lobster (I am aware lobster is expensive, but I am sure there are ways to present it better: an open sandwich perhaps? Some cool funky salad of red chard, pickled fennel, samphire and some black caviar maybe?). I was very disappointed with that dish - the halibut that the other person got looked much better and if I return, I definitely will try something different. With regards to dessert, while it looked unreal, it was just OK - the flavours did not jump out at me, the coffee infused chocolate soup did not taste of coffee to me at all for example, and I paid a lot for basically some chocolate and whipped vanilla cream. Just not what I expected. As for the cheese board - had it been given to me, I would have sent it back as the cheeses were, in my opinion, not a good combination. HOWEVER, overall we had a pleasant time at Lobstar, with a huge emphasis of the positivity and attentiveness of the staff. Perhaps comments like this will help you improve - or hate me :)
We had a wonderful birthday meal in Lobstar, the food and service were perfect as usual. We had a couple of specials (scallop ceviche and rib eye), also tuna poke and cod (with parmesan and truffle fries).
Very lucky to have this fantastic restaurant so close, staff were masked and very safe feel.
Amazing food, we had such a lovely evening. Looking forward to booking again soon
Amazing as always! Felt very safe, faultless meal!
My partner and I visited Lobster on a Sunday evening, just out of locked-down. We had prawns, mussels and pan-fried scallops for starters, they were very tasty indeed. We had the lobster for the main course. It was delicious. I have to say that we noticed how well the staff were managing during the pandemic, when we arrived at our seats we were invited to sanitize our hands, servers were wearing masks properly and the place was spotless. I have to say, we felt very safe having dined there, it was clear that both management's and staff's message was one of comfort, exemplar service, security, and safe dining.
Absolutely amazing - staff was brilliant and I will definitely be returning!
VERY ENJOYABLE MEAL - a bit pricey for the lobster.
It’s so good to be back and to be able to enjoy their lovely food and excellent service once again
Very enjoyable. Great food. A bit tight for space (under current restrictions)
Couldn’t recommend it highly enough . Great food. Great ambiance.
Superb meal, as always
As always the food was delicious, especially Asian cooler oysters and the shared black sole. Love this! Staff are just so kind and friendly and unobtrusive but also attentive when required. It’sa lovely intimate setting and i will continue to eat here.
Fabulous food and service. Felt very safe also. Highly recommend
Absolutely fabulous. I could not fault anything. The food was delicious. Service was excellent. We cannot wait to return.
Wonderful food. Wonderful service.
Really lovely meal but we were cold sitting outside with no heaters. Tuna starter was incredible, will definitely be back!
Definitely recommend Lobstar and will comeback for some more mouthwatering and delicious seafood.
The outside ambience was unexpected but street view was amazing at night + the fleece blanket haha!
Overall food was great and service was excellent.. friendly and helpful staff.
Started with four sneaky naked oysters before our Calamari starters.
Then the Breaded Cod and parmesan and truffle chips, and Prawn Tagliatelle, paired with a medium bodied Spanish Rioja.
Dessert was the apple Tartin and two Baileys coffees.
The food was outstanding and delicious! 5 STAR
The service was excellent, 5 STAR and considering the restrictions, the food was definitely worth the cold weather. (throws available to the outdoor diners)
Amazing restaurant and one of the best we have been to for fish on the southside of Dublin.
