RED LOBSTER 3.5 out of 5
20 Dundas Street West, Toronto On., (416) 348-8938, Lunch and Dinner, Monday to Friday
Went to Red Lobster on a very cold February Saturday evening. It was located at the corner of Dundas and Bay street in a very nice office tower. We have been to Red Lobsters many times and find that not many of them are surviving (probably because they are rather expensive for a chain restaurant).
Fortunately, while waiting to be seated we were given a buzzer and could wander in the warm mall.
It was Lobsterfest, which was a limited time special of lobster based dishes.
After being seated, with only a short wait, we ordered a bottle of standard valpolicella, while a basket of wonderful cheese and garlic biscuits arrived. These were melt in your mouth delicious and we always enjoy them.
One advantage of this type of restaurant is that you get a salad and main, as well as biscuits for one price. My wife ordered the garden salad with balsamic dressing.
I chose the garden salad with a french type dressing.
Mark chose the caesar salad.
My wife chose the salmon New Orleans for her main. It came with vegetables and a rice pilaf and she really enjoyed it.
Mark chose the double maritime lobster tails with garlic shrimp and mashed potatoes.
I had the same with a baked potato.
Both lobster dishes were accompanied with french beans and a dish of melted butter for dipping. They were tender and cooked perfectly. Although they appeared not to be filling, they were. We found the food filling but expensive for the quality and portion. The server was efficient but robotic and did not tell us we could have had a free main if ordering two lobster specials! The restaurant was quite full and the atmosphere was warm on a really cold evening.
