Food was ok. Service was non existent at best. Management wasn’t attentive. Would not recommend this location to anyone I care about.

Subpar experience. Hostess never checked us in properly so I got an email from Opentable letting me know I was a no-show. Waiter was good but didn’t really seem as engaged with us. We normally get asked if we would like a second helping of biscuits but never got asked. Waiter then informed us he had to go on his 30 minute break (evidently he was behind on taking his break based on what other employees were discussing). We were told that another waitress would check in on us. Well she never did. Thank goodness we were able to pay at the table without assistance or I might have been there much longer. Left the restaurant feeling underwhelmed.

Great food at a wonderful price. I often go off peak hours and have great service as well. I leave satisfied.

A little shabbier than I had remembered. They have little pay terminals at your table flashing ads and during your meal now. Not a fine dining experience.

I am sorry to say that, along with many lunch pals over the years, we have become increasingly disappointed in the food at Red Lobster, Monrovia, CA. On this particular occasion, I decided to re-try the fish and chips - as did my friend who was with me. I had not ordered fish and chips during my last few visits, because it always seemed that the batter was not thoroughly cooked through. Unfortunately, even after complaining in the past, it did not get any better - between the crispy outside batter and the cooked fish inside, is a "creamy" substance, which I assume is uncooked batter. I also noted, that although it was a holiday (Easter Sunday) there were plenty of empty tables - both when we arrived and departed. Our service/waitress was terrific - but even upon both of us complaining, no mention was made of compensation for our un-eaten fish. I've talked with others about our experience, and learned they also, have become increasingly disappointed in the FOOD - NOT THE SERVICE - at the Red Lobster.
