“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Provides a fulll menu, but dedided on the fish and chips. It was perfect. Chips were crispy and the the fish was as fresh as one can get. We had a prompt, professional waitperson, sat outdoors. Loved it! Wished I lived close by!

“Flies”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We have been to this facility in Kanata several times and the Fish And Chips and other seafood is fine. It is the flies that bother us. We walked out on Sat because the flies buzzing about were soooo bad

“Used to be a good seafood restaurant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Having been to Lapointe's in BellsCorners, my wife and I decided to see if the Kanata operation was any better. Kanata Lapointe's is a franchise owned by Jeff Parladg, who runs the Westboro Fish house and has nothing to do with the Bells Corners franchise. However, they both have one thing in common and that is poor service and average food. Despite having reservations, the hostess became quite upset when we requested to be moved away from the toilets. We then waited for 15 minutes before a waitress noticed us and we ordered drinks. Another 30 minutes went by before she came back to take our orders. My wife wanted Oysters but changed her mind when told they were $3.25 each. We paid $1 each for the same ones from PEI last week in New Jersey. We both ordered grilled halibut and I chose fries as a side dish, whilst my wife took a salad. When the food arrived, the halibut was extremely small (about 4oz) and the fries were soggy. My wife's salad took up most of the plate. The menue has many choices and one can have pasta dishes as well. On the upside, they do have a patio where one can eat and the tables are not crammed together as inside the restaurant.
Like many of today's restaurants, there is little to deaden the sounds of people chattering and on a busy weekend evening the noise can be quite annoying.

“Good seafood in Ottawa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Our first meal at Lapointe's Seafood Grill in Kanata, May 15th, this year. The good things I've heard about it are true: the service was fast and pleasant, the atmosphere is down home east, prices are reasonable and the food is great. I had the grilled tilapia with olives, goat cheese, peppers and bacon mashed potatoes with lots of great veggies. My husband had the clam wrap and seafood chowder. All were large and good and the presentation was really nice.

We'll be back soon for more seafood at Lapointe's!

“So many choices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Been here a few times, but always a favorite when in the area, so many choices, it is truly a shame that you can only eat so much food at one sitting! Service is always nice and friendly too boot!
