Convenient spot, comfortable, good service. Food is plentiful. I had 2 kinds of shrimp and a lobster tail, plus an extra garden salad as a side. Lobster tail was dry, shrimp more tasty. Salad was satisfactory. Broccoli on the side not too good. Large variety of seafood to choose from. Value is more in the size of the portions and quantity of food than in the quality. An acceptable place for a meal if you are in the area and don't have much time.

I love dining at red lobster when I’m in the mood for shell fish. This location is my go-to spot. The lobster was amazing, which I ordered with a side of grilled scallops. So succulent. Very good. I ordered 2 sides of vegetables; asparagus and dragon broccoli. Both were an additional 2.99 each which was quite expensive as it replaced 2 sides that cane complimentary to my meal. The asparagus was a large portion but slightly under cooked. The crispy dragon broccoli was a mixture of sweet chili sauce with soya and was a little soggy. With the additional sauce and frying of the broccoli should not be 2.99. I will pass on the crispy dragon broccoli in future. It was a Saturday so it was quite busy. The one issue was the kids watch movies loud on their iPads at surrounding tables. That was a little distracting and felt like we were at an arcade. But the food was great and our waiter was friendly and attentive. Good night.

Food was better than the Thornhill location. Our server Mike was very friendly and accommodating with allergies and children. Biscuits are exactly as I remembered.

Do NOT order Alfredo. Watery with no flavour. Plus you can barely taste the crab. However our server was great. Sucks the food wasn’t up to par. Never going back there.

This was my first time going to red lobster surprisingly. I had the fish and chip special offered on the Wednesday’s. We also snagged the free app coupon from the website for signing up to the newsletter. In total the meal was like $13 which was so great. Then those biscuits were to die for. Our server Harry was wonderful and super attentive throughout the entire meal. Would definitely return.

Food quality was sub par
Salads were forgotten and then sent home as a take out
Items on some of meals were missed and had to be requested
Quality of food was very poor across the board
Price for quality and experience is very high.

We have gone to red lobster for years for both our sons birthdays and most likely this will be our last time. It was very disappointing.

Visiting from London, England and came across the Red Lobster by chance. As we both like seafood we booked for priority seating on here. The whole experience was excellent with exceptional service, food and value for money. Our server was so engaging and helpful. We have booked to go again later this week. Well done Red Lobster.

Great first visit to Red Lobster! My friend and I tried the Dinner For Two Thursday promo for $42! I’d say it’s more than enough for two people, we could not even finish the appetizer and dessert. Our server Sheila gave good recommendations and was very prompt to refill glasses, etc. The place got busy pretty fast so make sure you have a reservation!

The staff was very helpful and engaging but the food was very greasy and very salty.

The lunch menu did not offer a variety of seafood just shrimp or deep fried shrimp or lukewarm shrimp cocktail.

The location and the other patrons was very very depressing.

Great value. I ordered a 1-1/4lbs lobster with a side of grilled scallops. My bf ordered an array of shrimp. The place was busy but we were seated within a couple minutes of arrival. I booked our reservation via ope. Table. Although the app said it wasn’t an official reservation but a request for priority seating... we were still seated right away. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. It’s my favourite spot for seafood. Awesome night!

While we appreciated the attentive service and ambiance, the food was not great. Cesar salad was drenched in dressing and there was way too much salt in all the dishes.

Das Red Lobster liegt im nördlichen Bereich von Downtown Toronto. Wer gern Fisch isst, ist hier gut aufgehoben. Eine Vielzahl von Garnelengerichten, Hummer und Fisch warten auf den Besucher. Wir testeten u.a. die mexikanisch feurigen Garnelen und die Ultimate Platte mit Krabbe, Hummer und Shrimps. Dazu sollte man unbedingt noch die norwegische Backkartoffel mit Krabbe bestellen! Sehr, sehr lecker! Als Nachtisch empfiehlt sich ein sehr leckerer Vanille-Käsekuchen mit frischen Erdbeeren.

Fazit: Prima Essen, ein süffiges IPA Bier und ein gutes Ambiente rundeten den Abend ab!

We get seated immediately so I totally recommend the priority seating option. Food was good but the service wasn't the best that night (we waited for almost 35 minutes just to get the bill).

Priority seating was helpful particularly because we came in for a late dinner. But after initially being told to have a seat, I found that we were missed in being seated only after I had asked how long of a wait to expect. The food was over cooked (steak and asparagus) and although the server was very nice and offered to bring us a new one, we didn’t want to wait for another one (again, it was already a late dinner). He also offered a complimentary dessert; although a kind gesture, it doesn’t make up for what was ordered, but didn’t get.

Have eaten here one a year for the last four years. As we live in BC it is a treat to go to Red Lobster. Not so this year. Despite best efforts of our server food delivered slowly and sporadically. We gave up waiting for mashed potatoes to show up and switched to baked potatoes which came after main course. Holiday weekend. Half empty kitchen. Food that did arrive on time not great. Disappointing night. The end of a family tradition.
