Love the amount of garlic in your food and your biscuits. I really like the seafood and the variety, I had the lobster linguine it was flavourful, but there was far too much salt which ruined the enjoyment of my meal. Trying using a little less salt in your meals and if other patrons want more salt to their food... More

Crabfest?

Every year we go at least once to Red Lobster and I love it! I used to go as a child when they were still in Montreal. I don't mind the travel and since it's never disappointing I'm 99% sure I'll be back :)

We had not been for a while and decided to go during a trip to Ottawa. The service was excellent and the staff knew he menu very well. The food was good but a little too salty including the cheesy garlic biscuits which tasted more of salt than cheese or garlic. We would go back but would certainly ask them... More

My wife and I had dental appointments in Ottawa so we decided to have a good lunch before beginning an afternoon of shopping. For my wife, lobster is a special treat. I’m not a fan of seafood, but I know that Red Lobster has other choices. My wife had a dish of a lobster tail, shrimp and a skewer of... More

I waited three years to finally get to try this restaurant. It's absolutely a must if you are in Ottawa. We got a good service, a nice waitress. She made sure we were all right during our diner. She even waited for us to try out our steak just to be sure we had it cooked to perfection. Lovely service.... More

First time at this restaurant at my 10 year old son's insistance we eat here. Typically not a place I would take a young child but for a "treat" for both of us, I obliged. We both ordered entrees (Portofino Bake for him and a lobster/shrimp combo for me). We both chose the caesar salad for a starter and I... More

I just wanted to write this review to let people know about the amazing manager Carl. We went to RL last night and waited about 10 min for a server but no one showed up. I let the hostess know and immediately Carl came, apologized and brought over a waiter. He also gave us a free app and meal discount... More

the food was good, the service could have been faster given that the place was not more than 50 percent full. the prices were also very reasonable for the size of the dish. also the waiter was very helpful and informative.
