Fantastic food, fantastic service, and fantastic company! We had a great meal of scallops, fish, shrimps, and scampis. A delicious salad before the meal and those melt in your mouth buns. We make a stop at this Red Lobster every time we go to Ottawa

12 noon, weekday, for lunch with friends. Attentive service throughout. Pleasant atmosphere. Lunch time menu mix, adequate servings. Licensed to serve beers, wines, etc. Fish and chips was my choice and was very tasty. Plenty of parking, close to 417 (Queensway).

My daughter, my wife and I come eat here frequently. We ALWAYS get flawless service and the food is always delicious. The washrooms are always clean, as is the dining room. My advice is to come early because this place fills up pretty fast and the waiting time can be long. The only reason I'm not giving a perfect rating... More

This had to be one of the worst experiences ever. I took my mother to this restaurant as its her favourite. The hostess preceded to sit us as this tiny booth fit only for two people despite the fact I told her my husband would be joining us. When I asked if we could move I was told we choose... More

A very busy place. Parking attendant on site to help indicate available parking spaces is a plus. Luckily we didn't have to wait too long for a table. The food was very good and served warm. Fresh chucked oysters with vinaigrette would have made the perfect meal.

Living in Quebec we no longer have Red Lobster which is a shame as so many people I know love this Restaurant. So when I found out that there are some in the Ottawa region I was very happy. We stopped off at this place driving back from a family members cottage. It is just off the highway on our... More
