Lobster Fest and a Happy Birthday !

On Saturday April 11, 2015, my wife and I were accompanied by friends of ours for a late diner at the Red Lobster on St. Laurent Blvd to celebrate two birthdays. It was a very busy Saturday night as we had a waiting period of one hour. However, once sitting at our table, we were enjoying delicious... read more

I had not been to Red Lobster for several years and thought they had improved on the mediocre food I remembered from the past. They haven't. We went without a reservation on a Saturday night and had to wait for about 30 minutes, so they are drawing business. Once seated, the server took our orders fairly quickly, but was quite... More

Of course this is a chain and almost everyone's been to a Red Lobster someplace, sometime. This is the Red Lobster on St. Laurent Blvd., a good old stand-by, busy even at 3 pm on a Tuesday afternoon. It's simple: reliable, varied selection and great waiters. Today I went in alone and had the Chef's Selection, blackened Arctic Char and... More

We went for a Mother/Daughter dinner and movie night. We went to eat early (4:30) because we knew on Fridays it gets really busy. There was a line up when we left. The server was helpful and friendly. We liked their new menu design with all the menus in one - drinks, food, and dessert. Tip: Get the 4 course... More

I have ate in this restaurant many times. I live outside of Ottawa but when I visit Ottawa i always go here looking for a great Seafood Dinner.The Clam Chowder Soup and Fresh Biscuits are probably the best you will ever eat. The prices are reasonable on a great choice of menu and the service is great.

Visited this restaurant in late afternoon for late lunch/early dinner. We ordered caesar salad, some shrimps for my husband and some talapia for me. Everything was very good, hot and fresh....not a bad price for what we got. Service was good and attentive.

We have eaten at the Red Lobster Merivale location several times and enjoyed it. However our last experience there was a nightmare. Took forever to get out food then it wasn't even our order! When we finally got our order it was all wrong. Waited even longer for them to correct. Drink refills took forever and we are still waiting... More

Three of us arrived shortly after 5 pm on a Friday. We were told it would be a 30 minute wait, but actually it was 20 minutes. Service was prompt and attentive. Food was excellent.

My wife and I went to red lobster tonight and my wife had the blackened salmon it was to die for very well done. I had the fire lobster feast and that one was excellent. On top that the waitress was awesome friendly and knows here business.
