The lobster dinner was mindblowing (as an Australian, we don't get decent lobster) so to enjoy it for $55 was a thrill in itself. The only issue was that they took a while to let me know they were having some issues with the steamer. I have no problems waiting a little longer if there's mechanical problems in the kitchen,...

My wife and I visited a weeks ago and don't think we'll ever go back, it was so disappointing. The waitress gave excellent service but the meal was a over-priced and of meagre proportions. My wife had Land-and-Sea: pasta with shrimp and chicken, which consisted of a huge pile of pasta with just three shrimp and three pieces of chicken.... More

The service was excellent. Thanks Donna!! The food was superb! The calamari was perfect. The fish and chips was delicious. The escargot was to die for :-) All in all a great experience and we will definitely be back again.

I am so disappointed in the new menu at Lapointe's. Cannot believe that they no longer serve the Manhatten chowder. I have been coming here for lunch for years and it's the best thing they serve. Went yesterday for lunch, found the menu had changed and was limited and no more manhattan chowder so we left.

This is one of the best seafood restaurants I have ever eaten at and I would highly recommend it. I had the blackened swordfish which was absolutely delicious!! On previous occasions, I have had the blackened catfish and the fish and chips which were equally delicious!

We walked in and I had not seen any reviews but we decided to try the place as it was clean and modern inside and there were a few other patrons. The portions are on the small side. The ingredients are fresh and there is no fishy smell. The Oysters Rockefeller were oysters but that's about as close as it... More

Always a great place for lunch and dinner. Food is always consistent, service excellent. Been there many many times. Hard to try someplace different when you know the quality of food at Lapointe's.

After our free Ottawa walking tour we asked Danielle for reccomendations for seafood lunch, she walked us to this restaurant, it has an outdoor terrasse and in the basement an air conditioning salon, we opted for the basement. We ordered a dish of pan seared salmon and soup of the day. The size was good for me but small for... More

We dined at this restaurant for dinner with 3 other friends. It was a very nice restaurant with great service and wonderful food. We would recommend it for people who want a quiet adult night out. Great choice of food and libations.
