Red Lobster - La Mesa
It does no good to make a reservation, they still made us wait.
Love that the quality is always predictable. Each of our steaks were cooked to perfection and I enjoyed my delicious lobster tail. Of course, the Cheddar Bay biscuits are always a treat.
The priority wait list doesn't really work. Still waited 50 min passed the entered time. When you have elderly parents with you, the extra wait is a problem. Server was fantastic. Food ok. Staff definitely overworked.
The clam chowder was cold and the “Ultimate Feast” was salty and over cooked. This will be our last visit to Red Lobster.
The food and server were awesome but the receptionist didn't know what she was doing also told us that there was no reservations and then acted like there we other customers in front of our reservation like wait didn't you just tell us there wasn't any reservations and now your looking for invisible people outside awesome place to eat at they just need to find a receptionist that knows wth there doing
Our food was great! Our server Renee was outstanding! We’ll definitely be coming back.
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.
