“Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Went to the red lobster for lunch.
It was kinda empty so we decided to seat outside to enjoy the sun and the weather.
Ordered Lobster nachos as a starter and it was a good choice.
For main plate, Grilled chicken and some grilled shrimps, the food was good and tasty, the portion was good enough.
The staff wasn't very friendly.

I may give it another try.

“not as great as their advertisement/posters sound”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

the location outside Dubai Mall is really great, but the service was not good at all. They were slow and the food was not tasty at all.
However, it is nice they have an outdoors area.

“Great meal for a chain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Have dined at Red Lobster in Dubai Mall a few times and never been disappointed. Weekdays they have a great value meal including a starter, main and drink/dessert. The lobster bisque soup is excellent. Shrimp and lobster was good quality and tasty. Service is generally quite good, although wait times can sometimes be a bit longer when the restaurant is busy.

“For a Fest the service was casual the servings fast food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

We were headed to a restaurant we had been before, but we knew we would not get the fountain view, so when we saw LobsterFest promotion on, we stopped. It seemed like the US chain and it is. Maine lobster was advertised.

We were told by the hostess 'no places' outside it would have to be inside. We were given almost amongst the first tables. Within 10 minutes we had to move to a quieter area. We were just sitting outside the kitchen. The clanging of empty dishes sounded deafening.

The table was closer to the outdoor, more guests were seated and it seemed more like a restaurant in operation.

The attendant who took the order was very casual. I suppose, his job ended. Servers came with the food and then on everything seemed like we were in a fast food chain.

The lobster was ok, but overcooked and the staff were not properly trained.
As a takeaway it would be just about acceptable.

“Nice and tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

This restaurant is similar to Friday's and Chillies. The meal portion is big, prices are ok, if you exclude the lobster.
Some meals comes with side dish salad free of charge.
The order might take longer time then it should be, to arrive to your table
The service is ok, nothing special.
The value for you money is worth to try it, it is recommended.
