This was my first visit to Yo Lobster! The service was excellent (a young lady named D assisted me) and the food was very good. I will look forward to going back to try one of their warm lobster rolls.

Have been multiple times but never for brunch. Their breakfast/brunch items are limited but the best French toast I have ever had.

My wife and I went to Yo Lobster based on a D Magazine recommendation that they had "Best Lobster Roll in Dallas." It was far from it. I ordered the Connecticut Lobster Roll and it turned out to be a few dry, tasteless chunk of what was supposed t to be lobster in a roll. My wife's salmon was okay but the lobster roll was disappointing to say the least. They did have good key lime pie which is why I gave it two stars instead of one. Yo Lobster was way over priced and they definitely need to work on what they call a lobster roll. There are much better seafood places in the Dallas area. Needless to say, we won't be back and won't be recommending it to friends as well.

Looking for a new experience drew us here, mostly based on the menu. No disappointment! The seafood was of superior quality and the service top notch. It is almost hyper critical to mention that: it is a little on the expensive side and, portion size was small. Still, Happy Hour specials were plentiful and more than reasonable. A recommended stop for those that love seafood and for a casual but upscale dining experience.

We went very early, first table in with reservations and they seated us all the way back by the kitchen. Rude. I guess because of our child. We ordered both of the fish specials and neither were any good. Stay with the lobster rolls. Love the music and atmosphere and our service was good.

The food is good. The service is also good. The prices are a bit high if you are ordering a salad with either crab or lobster. It can run over $30. Add a drink and a tip and it's a pricey lunch.

Food and service was great. Given the current COVID concerns, we chose to eat outside. There were only 3 tables with people outside…plenty of outdoor seating tables available. However, the folks eating outside were all seated close to each other. I’d recommend doing a better job of spacing diners out when tables are open.

Yo Lobster is a cute spot.. its small, we sat behind a large group of girls in the booth behind us. They were so loud we had a hard time enjoying our own conversation. The drinks were great.. the food was good but not amazing. Service was cool.

We had a wonderful meal at Yo Lobster! While is was great? The service is what stepped it up a notch in my eyes. There are so many places wanting your dining business, but I will go back to the one who really appreciate you. Our server and all the staff were A+. Additionally? Everyone finished their entire meals! That says something right there. We had lobster rolls, burgers, fish tacos, fish and chips and cocktails. There is a nice Happy from 4-6.

Always a great place for fresh seafood! Wife is a huge oyster fan, and their happy hour for oysters is awesome. We ended up with 18 for $36. Very reasonable. Drinks were great (good rocks pours) and service was top notch. Servers work hard there and deserve good tips!
One comment...we've had the lobster rolls several times, and this time both (Maine and Connecticut) were a little underwhelming on the amount of lobster. Never truly noticed before...but maybe it's because prices are sky high now. Even so, a $29 roll shouldn't leave you questioning. But, the food and service is still great and we will be back!

I am from New England and could not have been more pleased with the menu selection and quality of the seafood. We sat outside and it was very comfortable in the shade. For those avoiding carbs, all tacos and rolls can be wrapped in lettuce, love that! The alcoholic drinks were great too. What brought it all together was the outstanding service by our waiter.
