Disappointing ... bad pick, I guess

I've had good experiences at this restaurant so I was disappointed with my meal yesterday. I was having a fish craving so I picked the Tilapia with roasted vegetables which is cooked in the parchment paper. The tilapia was gummy and flavourless, the rice was the only thing that was seasoned and... read more

Wine was delicious, had the Peller estates Cabernet. I had a trio plate which included lobster pasta , shrimp & salmon! Food was hot &... More

This is a very busy restaurant on weekend evenings. If you wish to enjoy the place on a Friday or Saturday evening either come early i.e. 4:30 PM or a couple of hours later. However, you could arrive at 5:30 and hang out in the comfortable bar area until your table is ready. The service here is very friendly and... More

The lobster was tiny and rubbery. The butter dip was so salty it was not eatable. Overcrowded, staff very rushed. Worst restaurant experience I've ever had. Other red lobsters have been better.

I always enjoy my meal at Red Lobster especially the fixed price 4 course meal. You make a choice of soup, then salad, main course and then dessert. Excellent taste and excellent value.

We go to Red Lobster in Kitchener fairly regularly (for all of our special occasion dinners (and sometimes just because!...) we love the fresh seafood and great staff! We never feel rushed through our meal even though there is always a waiting line. The staff have all been friendly and attentive but not too intrusive, (which is a nice change... More
