Red Lobster - Scarborough
Food is so so. Doesn't worth the price. The waitress doesnt even come and refill the water. Gave me the bill in a rush then never came back to refill our water.
We went for our 36th wedding anniversary and Red Lobster did not disappoint. Thank you!
Booked theough ooen table. Onnreachibg were told that we had to wait for an additional 20 mins. After being seated food came in within 20 mins. No staff came to see if we needed anything for almost 40 mins/ when we were done eating our meal. We hailed another server and only after 15mins our server came but it was too late. We paid our bill and left disgruntled.
P.S not going back there anytime.
Wonderful service and as always great food. Would have preferred table rather than booth for our party but perhaps that could be part of the preferred questionnaire.
A regular place for me with my Uncle. We have not had a bad experience.
it typical but good, still a little pricy, but overall good for what I expected
This looks like an understaff restaurant, slow greeters, slow kitchen and had to wait for 25mins for our lunch meal.
If you are in a rush for lunch time, don't book it.
The food was tasty - just wished it was a bit more
Priority waitlist was an absolute joke. While not a reservation from the explanation online my name would be put on the waitlist as if I was actually there so that when I got there my wait time would be at a minimum. I waited for over 40 minutes watching as walk-ins that just put their names in waited less time than me on a supposedly priority waitlist. And then being given some BS excuse by one of your hostesses that ALL those going ahead of me were also priority before me when I--who was standing right at the host stand and could hear that these diners did not do priority waitlist--knew she was lying to me. I felt extremely degraded and overlooked. It's as if I was being penalized for being both a solo diner as well as one with mobility issues (I use a walker). If it wasn't for the fact I needed to eat because my blood sugar was getting low I would've left. Honestly I hated that I had to eat at your restaurant.
The only glimmer of light was my server, I think his name was John, who could clearly see I was upset and did his best to give me as good a service as possible. But after the way I was treated by the hostesses the damage was done.
Btw I have been at this particular Red Lobster many, many times over the years but because of how I was treated this past Friday night (June 28) I will not return. Why go back to a place that nearly brings you to tears? Not even sure I'll even go to another Red Lobster.
Definitely do not recommend.
Attentive waiter. Food good. A weak Long Island iced tea though.
Love this place!! Servers are always so friendly and accommodating toward our children!
Food is mediocre, service was excellent. Decor definitely needs a good cleaning and “sprucing up”. Won’t return.
Surf and turf was great! Friendly waitress. We enjoyed it.
The "waitlist" was pointless as we arrived 10 minutes prior to the waitlist and still waited over 1 hour for a seat. Upon seating, the serving was attentive but had to be asked multiple times for water refills and ketchup. The food was sub-par. Do not order the cedar wood meal with the sausages. The sausages were dry (they tasted rubbery). The sharing appetizer was small and not worth the money paid. 4 mushrooms, 4 coconut shrimp, and 4 shrimp cocktails for $16.
Foods were good, just that the restaurant cancelled my reservation when I did dine in restaurant. I have to email open table to get my points.
Great food and excellent service
Everything was overall pretty good. I had gone a couple times, 5-10 years ago, and wasnt impressed, but it seems that both the food and service has both gotten better. The prices are pretty decent for what you get. Worth going for the variety at thise prices.
The service was good. The waitress was somewhat attentive and very pleasant albeit we did have to ask and flag her down for refills 2x. The food was yummy but a little bit on the salty side hence the refills. We like going here coz it's nearby and good food for the money.
It's been about a year since I was last at Red Lobster, but I went anticipating a good meal because I've never been disappointed.
Sadly, Friday night's dinner was largely a let-down. If it hadn't been for the spectacular service, I'd have been inclined to leave.
It started with the caesar salads, which were limp and under dressed.
There's been a change to the fish & chips batter recipe and I am not a fan of the new at all. Uber greasy - more a breading than a batter - it lacked the spectacular crisp of the original recipe. And the chips? After specifically asking they be made extra cripsy, they arrived undercooked, limp & cool. I sent the dish back, asking they be replaced with extra crispy. When it came back, the only improvement was that they were fresh out of the basket hot, but nowhere close to extra crispy. Sad.
The lobster fettucine was ok, but lukewarm. The steak over cooked as was the broccoli that came with it.
The best thing about the meal was the biscuits (which were as predictably delicious as always) and the beverages.
Frankly, I'm not sure I'll be back. So disappointing, particularly give we'd gone to have dinner in memory of a beloved family member, who'd loved it there.
Lot more wait time than table is booked for priority seating. Ordered calamari but it's bad with smell. Otherwise, rest are all good.
Thanks to Open Table, we only waited 15 minutes. Excellent service and good food. Very busy, but organized restaurant!
Always a good time! Our server Lucie deserves a shoutout for being so pleasant ❣
Will definitely be eating here more often . The prices were affordable! 😁
Not somewhere we frequent often but we fancied some lobster. You get what you expect from a fast food restaurant. Service was great it can’t be an easy job!
Would not recommend using Opentable for the Priority Seating. Preference was given to those who used the restaurants online wait list on their website. This was determined after talking to people who had later times then us who were seated first. We had a 7:45 time and only after asking at 8:20 why we hadn't been seated yet did they grab us a table right away. Food and Service was excellent but this was not the right way to start a nice dinner. Disappointed
Food was good, service was awesome
Had an awesome experience table was ready when we wanted had a perfect evening with the wife, who was having a lobster craving
Our server was very helpful & professional!
I enjoyed being served by Bianca. Our older children who are 19 and 20 enjoyed her service last time and recommended we go there this time for a nice family dinner. Luckily she had a seat available and we had a great time. She makes us feel welcome and well taken care of. Thank you Bianca. You have a very caring way and that makes it very comforting like home.
The most spectacular dinner for 2 I have had alone with a friend in the longest time!! I ate 50 shrimps and my best friend ordered 4 items that all came perfectly.
Always a satisfied meal and enjoyable experience
Ideal family venue for gathering and great seafood , it is unfortunate that there is just a few Red Lobster restaurants around.
Just amazing Food. Our server was espectacular! Thanks
It was good overall.
Apart from the long wait and congested parking lot, service and food were both excellent. Definitely worth the hours wait.
Service was excellent and food was good
