Dr. R decided to meet at the Red Lobster for a late business lunch on Thursday, September 28th. Shafik our waiter was extremely accommodating. Our non-alcoholic drinks were made just the way we requested. The drinks were sweet, gingery and very tasty. We ordered chicken caesar salad and the lunch portion crab with linguine and alfredo sauce. Both dishes were delicious with the right amount of cream/sauce. The pasta was done al dente with tender bits of crab meat on top. I was pleased with all the staff including the manager that assisted us today. This is my second review.........the first one three stars........today five stars.

We are regular customers at Red Lobster as the fish is always well prepared and fresh as possible for restaurant far from the sea as Toronto. I had the Admiral's Feast and the fish was so hot,crispy light and succulent ; the batter was not greasy and every bite a delightful culinary experience. The clams ,shrimp and scallops were also crisp and not over cooked ; they were crunchy and resilient ( the texture of fresh sea food well prepared). I inquired of the server the name of the Chef, and he said it was ,and we sent our thanks and compliments to her.
I cook myself and I do appreciate the challenges inherent in providing deep fried sea food, at the peak of gustatory temperature which takes it out of the ordinary to extra ordinary.Lorraine only works during the week so my visits will coincide with her schedule if possible. The French Fries were also not greasy and crisp outside and perfectly cooked inside. The seafood portions were quite generous and the biscuits lived up to expectations. We enjoyed the experience immensely as we love sea food .

Our server John was polite,knowledgeable efficient and professional in his manner to customers . He was always there when needed and brought extra napkins ,fork , drinks etc as required. He provided cheerful service to enhance the dining experience. He has and unobtrusive helpful manner .
The restaurant was clean and the sea shanty ambiance is welcoming and family friendly. The staff are also quite hospitable as soon as you walk in.
The washrooms are also clean and well stocked .
We are glad that Red Lobster is within driving distance as we can have good quality seafood tastefully prepared when we wish to do so.

Great service, great atmosphere, varied menu. This is a seafood restaurant that offers some non-seafood entrees. The portions are generous. The cocktail menu is good, and the presentation of drinks is good to very good. if you like seafood and you live in, or are visiting Toronto, this restaurant is recommended. Wait time to be seated depends on the time of your visit.

Wife and I went for lunch to try the fresh fish - unfortunately, the delivery had not come, so we feasted on appetizers (pizza, mussels, shrimp) and dessert (lava cake). Everything was prepared perfectly. Many thanks to George our waiter , for making the visit so enjoyable. Stop in Tuesday - Sunday.

We tried seafood platter, pizza, lobster, etc.. Not tasty, in fact, too salty.
Service was so so.
The prices were not cheap at all. I believed that there should be many other choices available.
