Red Lobster - La Mesa
Wait, wait, wait, then order taken. Wait, wait, wait, food arrives. So-so in presentation and taste. Wait, wait, wait for a refill on my drink. Wait, wait, wait and dessert is offered (but declined). Thought that the payment process would be quick with the thingy that is supposed to do what servers used to do. Then wait, wait, wait until the server brought the paper receipt (the thingy was out of paper or something).
Enjoyed the all you can eat shrimp!
Lovely enjoyed the all you can eat shrimp!
Love all you can eat shrimp!
I must have taken my lunch so late that the regular chef was gone. Enough said.
Our server (Jeff?) was really great, not just honestly nice and wanting to get us just what we wanted, but also quick to return with whatever we had asked for. Please keep the summer power salad on the menu!
Our waiter gave us a good impression that he hated his job. Shame.
36th wedding anniversary
Have not been in years but was pleasantly surprised. I expected lots of kids running, noisy and deep frying smell but all that was toned way down. It is a family restaurant so it does have some noise and plenty of kids but with the remodel and great staff I felt very comfortable in the environment. Price has gone up a bit but I guess that's to be expected. Our server was fantastic. Great last minute go to comfort food place.
I used Open Table to get priority seating but it didn’t matter. Everybody who walked in the door had the same wait time. Service was slow. Where we were seated was incredibly noisy. My meal arrived with a problem. The server “forgot” to offer my daughter a free dessert for her birthday until AFTER we settled the bill. The food was alright but I won’t go back there after two bad experiences with that restaurant.
Preferred seating??? Means they sit you in the bar?? WTF
Drinks are very weak. food is never hot. If you go during lunch waiter doesn't ask if you want lunch size or dinner just assumes dinner size. (he even said that). Tried to redeem prize he made a big thing about the manager having to see my phone but no one ever checked my phone? WOW i could keep going. No bag for our left overs to carry out. And we had 6 people.
Thrusday nite special 4 course meal was excellent. Wine list was unexpectedly good.
