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.

Twenty-five years ago we used to go to Red Lobster regularly on the South Shore of Montreal. Our daughter loved the treasure chest that was offered on arrival where she could chose a little toy to keep and I loved the food (hubby isn't a seafood lover, so he doesn't count). Sadly the Red Lobsters around here all closed and... More

We wanted to go out for seafood, but didn't want to break the bank. Red Lobster was a good alternative. Yes, it is a family restaurant and so one expects some noise, but the food was excellent, the portions ample, the service very good and the price was right. No complaints

A bit pricier than your average family restaurant, buy for seafruit, Red Lobster is still the best place. Service was great and helpful, food was good. I had a steak , not wow but no complaints. Seafruit lovers in our family were pleased with their food.

We have been to red lobster restaurants numerous time in Canada and the US. We have our share of good and bad service as well as great and no so great meals there. During our last trip to Ottawa in Canada, we visited this restaurant on Merivale Road and we know what to expect. However we have one of the... More
