    Stumbled across the Opentable website whilst looking for an eaterie that catered for a lobster lover. And by chance found the Lobster Bar - and what a find! It didn't disappoint on any level. My lobster loving family member gave it a whopping rating of 9. Pretty amazing as the only other real contender; ever so slightly ahead at 10 is the Red Lobster chain in the States - where the size of lobster tends to be greater. So size aside you're on to a winner if you decide to dine out here. Will most definitely visit again😄

    Absolutely delicious. Pleasantly surprised by this place. We made a last minute reservation as we liked the look of the menu. We were not disappointed. We had the octopus and grilled prawns to start. Both cooked to perfection. For mains we had the ribeye and the half lobster, with some delicious new potato fries. The food was really yummy. We will definitely be back!

    disappointing - the overall lighting in the evening is just not good and totally ruins the ambience. we could not see our food and the light that was there was not pleasant at all. It is probably a lot nicer during the day, the place could look good for dinning with the right tasteful lighting. the food was not good at all; extreme lack of spices, taste and abundance. Wrong combinations and bad taste overall. not too expensive in general but overpriced by far for what we ended up with! the place needs some serious rethinking.

    In brief, an excellent night out. Very friendly service, the quality of the food was great and not the usual fare for the area. Don't be put off by the name, lobster really isn't the focus of the menu here, a real variety that meant we treated it as a shared plate evening in order to try out what was on offer and felt spoilt for choice. Will be back again, probaly again too. Thanks nice people!

    The octopus dish was SUPERB. Just want to come back and eat that again and again! Regret ordering the cabbage dish as no-one else wanted any and two large wedges was a but much for one person to eat. Corn was delicious though.

    We went there for my boyfriend's bday. Table for 7pax. On a Saturday night. It wasn't busy inside but all the outdoor sitting was full. We mainly choose the little dishes to share between all of us, most of it fish, and everything was very tasty and well presented!! Service and cocktails where also great!!! Will definetely go back again

    We loved the little 'tapa' we got made by the chef (octopus with onions and a nice dressing) The starters were amazing too. My partner had half a lobster and chips and I had the sea bass with clams, both were spot on and a nice side of courgetti with parmesan. I must say that the service was amazing a french girl served us the whole time, not overwhelming or lack of enthusiasm, all on the right tone. I also have an allergy and she always walked us through the ingredients of every meal . The space and atmosphere incredible too and around the corner of my house. Really worth it. I'll definitely come back this month :)

    We walked in after a rain deluge made us 30 minutes late and the welcome was still a delight. Friendly faces accepting we needed to dry first. Then get wet on the excellent drinks menu. The food menu is not vast but fresh and appealing. My starter took me to the shores of The Med' with perfectly cooked garlic prawns but the star was The Lobster. Succulent and tender and kept simple to show off a great ingredient. We were off to the theatre which the staff understood but this is a place to spend plenty of time in the future.

    I have been to the lobster bar before, however it was even better the second time round. The lobster was to die for and the steak was probably one of the best steaks I have ever had. The owner even made my friend a special cocktail for his birthday free of charge.

    This place is lovely! the concept is lovely! the service is lovely! the food is lovely! but! we found the portions on the small side as did Time Out magazine. We new this might be a slight issue after reading the Time Out point, so we ordered two mains per person, one as a starter and the other as a main + asked for bread on top as a filler, this made the meal just about enough for averagely hungry people. Sorry guys! you need to be just a little more generous with the portions. A good dining experience needs to have a perfect balance of quantity and quality, you have the quality...

    Romantic setting for a date, but the food and service just was not good enough. Hardly and food on plate, lobster was disappointing and only received a small plate of chips (which was the best taste wise all evening). All food seemed to lack flavour. Avoid their cocktail menu, had the worst daiquiri, I've ever tasted! Waiter didn't even bother to ask how we found the food. Very overpriced and underwhelming. Had to go somewhere else to eat after two flavourless starters and a lacklustre main. Definitely would not visit again if I was paid.

    Excellent seafood with a Latin twist - every dish was delicious, went back for seconds on a number of small plates. Great music & lighting also - my new favourite place to hang out / eat and soooooo much better than Lardo next door. A gem in this area!

    It has to be said - the lobster bar isn't the busiest place in Hackney right now - but it really should be - the food and service is excellent and it is a really nice room with a sun catching outside area. Maybe it's because it looks rather cold from outside, maybe people think it only does lobster (it has a good, mostly seafood menu) Really worth a try - and no, I have no association with the place!

    Delicious lobster at a very reasonable price. Lovely room. A little cramped. Could maybe do to lose one table along the back wall. Still, a great ambiance. Staff were great. Cocktails are definitely worth a try. Great value for money.

    Delicious food, some of which is very pricey (eg. 2 scallops for £9 !). Lovely staff, very good service but the tables are too crowded together so dinner mid evening on Saturday was SO NOISY we gave up on conversation. The couple next to us were addicted to their mobiles taking photos non-stop with flash of food, each other. Since they were practically in our laps it was horrible. We left quickly.

    i booked a table for 5.30 and when we got there we were able to choose the table of our choice. Very nice, friendly staff who catered to our every whim. The food was good but slightly too pricey for the fact that it's Richmond Road in Hackney, although the total was just under £50. I intend to return with the love of my life sometime this year though as I love seafood and fish.

    Super service, and lovely food from this new restaurant near to us. Portions were a bit small but came out promptly. If just two of you are going it might be better to ask for a seat along the window so you're not slotted in between bigger tables.

    Overall we had a very enjoyable dinner at Lobster Bar. The food was of high quality and was reasonably priced. The only sour note was that we had to wait an exceedingly long time for our mains and and the waitress only noticed after we had asked how long the wait was going to be. An additional side we ordered was left off the bill though. Would still recommend.
