We've been looking for a good seafood restaurant in Dublin for several years that wouldn't play a lot with the ingredients, and finally we found it; Lobster!. Everything was perfect, the food was perfect from starters to desserts. The staff was very friendly. The music was very nice, and still we could have a nice chat without raising our voices.
We are currently recommending everyone we know to try it. We'll definitely go back again.
Nothing was under perfection.
Good job and well done!

Went to Lobstar on Valentines for a wonderful dinner. even though the restaurant was packed it did not affect the excellent, professional and individual service provided by the charming waiting staff. The food, as always, was very tasty and beautifully presented and even on a night such as Valentine's they still had the early bird option available on a night when most restaurants put their prices up to exploit the market, not Lobstar!

Overall Lobstar was a really nice experience. Very friendly front of house. Food was excellent and that’s what counts! Best lobster bisque ever! If I were to spend money on improvements it would be for heating and seating!

The place was very small and very busy . Had to wait for our table , which was out of staffs hands. But they made us feel really comfortable and gave us a glass of wine on the house. Staff were so nice, food was amazing. Well worth the wait.

Thing this could be a great place for a get together with friends or a date. Cute ambiance! I was with my team from work and it was great food and service. Delicious seafood and really accommodating - one of my colleagues wanted a salad with no dressing which they were very kind to do so! Really great!

Absolutely adore Lobstar...the tiniest of gripe being that my fries were a little underdone but overall it was an absolutely delightful evening

Really nice food and lovely service. Lovely place to go if you don't want to get too fancy but want really nice food. The oysters were very good as were the mussels and tuna starter. We all opted for the New York lobster roll and it did not disappoint. I would not hesitate to return

Outstanding food and very friendly attentive staff. Overall I cannot recommend high enough. I really love eating here. Their signature food, lobster, is cooked beautifully and the scallops are a must.

The restaurant was cold, food was poorly executed, the lobster was chewy, the broth was like cheap tinned tomato soup. Spent over a €100 on four mains, no drinks, starters or desserts. For this poor quality of food, certainly no value here.

Lobstar and its elegant and welcoming hostess Valeria are superb, in terms of the excellent fish dishes offered, the warm welcome received and the ambient atmosphere provided. Combined, they make a great addition to the culinary standards and food experience in Monkstown.

We enjoyed our seafood dinner in Lobstar. The restaurant was small and cosy, the atmosphere warm. The service was very friendly and polite. Our lobster was very good, but not exceptional. I would recommed lobstar for an informal dinner date or getting together with a friend or friends. For a special occasion or a more festive occasion I would choose some other place.
