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.

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? Have been before and the crab was nice even the haddock was fabulous - however I have to say the tiny crab legs (like toothpicks) with next to nothing inside really shocked me ....this is not what I am used to at red lobster - both my husband and I had crab, had to send my husbands back when...

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
