My wife and I often eat at Lapointe's in Kanata because the seafood is always delicious. My wife often has the fish tacos and she says these are the best in Ottawa. I prefer the fish or shellfish dishes and I always feel that the food is above average. I had grilled salmon a couple of nights ago and the... More

Whenever we are visiting family in Ottawa we try to visit this restaurant. We made reservations to be certain of a table. It was very busy when we arrived but not too bad later. The food was excellent. Some changes had been made in the menu but it was all good. I have found that as I heard in a... More

The lobster dinner was mindblowing (as an Australian, we don't get decent lobster) so to enjoy it for $55 was a thrill in itself. The only issue was that they took a while to let me know they were having some issues with the steamer. I have no problems waiting a little longer if there's mechanical problems in the kitchen,...

My wife and I visited a weeks ago and don't think we'll ever go back, it was so disappointing. The waitress gave excellent service but the meal was a over-priced and of meagre proportions. My wife had Land-and-Sea: pasta with shrimp and chicken, which consisted of a huge pile of pasta with just three shrimp and three pieces of chicken.... More

The service was excellent. Thanks Donna!! The food was superb! The calamari was perfect. The fish and chips was delicious. The escargot was to die for :-) All in all a great experience and we will definitely be back again.

I am so disappointed in the new menu at Lapointe's. Cannot believe that they no longer serve the Manhatten chowder. I have been coming here for lunch for years and it's the best thing they serve. Went yesterday for lunch, found the menu had changed and was limited and no more manhattan chowder so we left.

This is one of the best seafood restaurants I have ever eaten at and I would highly recommend it. I had the blackened swordfish which was absolutely delicious!! On previous occasions, I have had the blackened catfish and the fish and chips which were equally delicious!

We walked in and I had not seen any reviews but we decided to try the place as it was clean and modern inside and there were a few other patrons. The portions are on the small side. The ingredients are fresh and there is no fishy smell. The Oysters Rockefeller were oysters but that's about as close as it... More
