Diner Reviews
  • "We've lived near this place for years, going back to when it was a wine shop instead of a wine and small plates place. I took my wife here for her birthday and I was glad I did. Extremely friendly service along with a nice list of wines you won't find in those "trendy" places in Oak Park. Combine that with plates of delightful food and we will be back. Don't miss it!"

  • "... a winning visit! I brought yet another friend to House Red for drinks and apps, and she was very impressed. Since it's Lent, we didn't order anything with meat, but certainly didn't miss it. We shared three small plates, including the olive tapenade, which I have now ordered on 3 successive visits! I love bringing friends here, and will be back again and again. Neb is the best, and he's done a great job reinventing House Red."

  • "This is a cozy smaller restaurant that offers a chance to try wines you don't see everywhere at a really accessible range of prices. Their food is very good -- a good list of well sized, well made appetizers, several flatbreads, three entrees and several desserts. I like that they have chosen to offer fewer really well made menu items rather than trying to do too much. The service was perfect -- helpful, knowledgable and friendly without being intrusive. I was there for conversation with a friend on a cold night but it would be a great spot for a date. It really is a gem."

  • "Everything great. It's just becoming too popoular. I wish they could knock down a wall and take the space next door, whatever it is! It's getting a little crowded. But the food is great, wine is fabulous and they remember you from the last time you came!"

  • "I have been buying wonderful wine at House Red for years, back to when it was just a small wine shop. But the ever-expanding addition of really great food has been a huge boost for this little Vinoteca. I was meeting up with a long-lost friend, and suggested the Vinoteca as a quiet place to catch up. I've have appetizers here, and the charcuterie plate, but this night, we shared the pork pate', hummus two ways, and olive tapenade. All were fabulous, and of course, the wine selection is outstanding. My friend was very impressed, and I was proud to share this gem. Love this place, and will definitely be back, both to purchase wine (be sure to ask for Neb's recommendations!) and to nosh on delicious, carefully-chosen and presented fare."

  • "Had a nice time catching up with girlfriends at this cozy spot. It's a wine store -with a great bottle selection plus a nighttime wine bar with delicious small plates in a cozy warm space. Also very reasonable."

  • "Great little wine bar! Nice and cozy! Very knowledgeable about wines & gave great suggestions. Enjoyed a bottle of red wine and some small plates. Olives was delicious, glad to see the gluten-free flatbread option ... flatbread was okay, I didn't really enjoy but my friend really liked it. Highly recommend!"

  • "House Red was a terrific find in Forest Park for a nice dinner with a great wine list of New World and Old World varities. The Balkan New Year menu specials were excellent. Great little place for a quiet romantic dinner."

  • "I took my wife to Red Vinoteca for our wedding anniversary dinner. The wine and food selection was delicious and the service was curtious and attentive. The wine selection had a lot of variety and we ended up buying a Croatian Red Wine because we enjoyed it without our dinner. The only thing I would change about this place is the portions of food for the price. The price was very high but and the food was excellent so we will not be able to go as often as we like."

  • "Went out with three friends and was looking for something new and unique---and I certainly found it at Red Vinoteca. Great ambiance, extensive wine list, funky decor. Food was very good and they offered small plates. So, it your're looking for a big heavy meal, go elsewhere. The portions were perfect with the paired wine we were served. Service was very good and staff was friendly."
