We had a great experienceWe had a great experience at Luna Red. Our server was very friendly and attentive. The food was really great as well. It was our first time dining there, and we will be back!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place in downtown SLOMy wife and I went to Luna Red during the Saturday night of our stay in San Luis Obispo. The outdoor dining looked very pleasant but they sat us inside, and in a corner though they were not busy inside. This became more frustrating when a couple came in and were given a larger table near us. Still we enjoyed the food very much. The small plates are great for sharing. The highlights were the cornbread and mac n' cheese. I only gave the service three stars because the food came out very slowly, which was disconcerting considering that it was not busy inside at all. What should have been a 1 hr 15 min meal took 2 hours. Our server was very pleasant though. Worth another try; they might have been short-staffed on that particular night.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorial Day memoryI had my family in for Memorial Day and we decided to go out to dinner at the San Luis Obispo location. My reservation from several weeks prior asked for a table overlooking the creek but we didn't get one on the creek. Unfortunate. The tapas were very good but the service was slow and we decided to go elsewhere for the main course rather than stay. That too was unfortunate.
The server was friendly and informative but not very available.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMagnificent ExperienceMy wife and I celebrated our anniversary here and we could not have enjoyed ourselves more. Our server Kristen was vivacious, attentive and knowledgable about the menu and the wine list.the highlights of the meal were the stuffed piquillo peppers, fish tacos & the chicken empandas. Kristen's wine recommendation was spot on. The patio dining was perfect, except for my wife's need to have a heat lamp right on top of us ;-). Overall a great experience and I look forward to returning.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMone of my favorite places in sloits a great place to take out of town guests. good menu choices for all needs....and yummy!!!!! patio seating is also wonderful...5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a restaurant!We brought some friends with us who had never been here before and we had the best service and food! Our waitress was attentive, friendly and gave excellent recommendations. We never ran out of water or clean plates for the various courses. We started with the "Wine Picnic" meat and cheese plate and then had the Piquillo Peppers, Beet Carpaccio, Lamb Skewers and the Skirt Steak. Dessert was amazing! We did the Luna Dulce so we could try a little bit of everything and it was completely worth it! Great place to go out for a peaceful and relaxing dinner with friends.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentThe service and food where top notch. Portion size was just right, not too much and not too little!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEntertaining diningGreat for slow-paced, conversation-rich evening.
Great use of local ingredients and wines in a cosmopolitan fashion5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful ServerThe server was very helpful as we made our decisions. We wanted to do our dinner tapas-style, ordering as we made decisions, and he was accommodating and attentive. He helped us decide on an excellent wine to go with our appetizer and answered all of our questions well. He was a pleasure to work with.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb!Went for a birthday dinner on a sat night, we made reservations and were seated on the patio.
Food was amazing! We ordered a varied selection ( tuna ceviche, asparagus salad to pork belly and meatballs and everything in-between ) everything came out in a timely fashion and was coursed wonderfully.
The rhubarb tart, Mexican chocolate cake and house made ice cream were the perfect note to end on.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious but pricey $!A bit pricey for the portion sizes. While the food was excellent, we can find better value in the San Francisco/Bay Area for similar cuisine and ambiance. Not sure many people (students and professors at Cal Poly) could afford to dine there frequently. Great sangria!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMLuna Red is wonderful! TheyLuna Red is wonderful! They have the best food and either indoor or outdoor seating!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMSuch a Great place!Tapas menu is so fun! We had a double date and got to try so many different things. The cocktail menu is as diverse as the wine selection. If you're looking for a restaurant that has it all, you shouldn't miss Luna Red.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing ServiceMade a reservation here for my girlfriend's 21st birthday and they were very accommodating and made it a very special night for her. Despite the fact that we were younger, they didn't discriminate against us as some nicer places usually do. I originally thought the food was a bit pricy for the portion but its packed with so much flavor that it fills you up and makes it worth every penny. Our waiter was great. Definitely coming back here more often!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
