Diner Reviews
  • "We love to sit on the deck on a sunny evening. We are particular fond of their clams and mussels."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Great food, fabulous service, very comfortable and nice ambiance. This is a neighborhood gem. We don't live near here, but try to stop, if the timing is right either to or from the airport."

  • "I picked your restaurant because a few years ago I dined there with a girl friend. I had the lasagna, and recalled it being the best I had ever had. On the evening of our reservation we were celebrating our 48th wedding anniversary. My husband loves anything Italian and he had never been to your restaurant, but I knew he would love it. (He agreed it was the best lasagna ever) I had the fish special which was also very good. We will come back with our grown foodie children from Las Vegas next month, they are also wine snobs so I know they will love your establishment."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Red House is quaint and unique, has a delightful menu accompanied by amazing daily specials. The wine and beer selection are more extensive than you could expect to find anywhere else in the area, and available for retail purchase as well as with your dining experience. The staff are friendly, intelligent, and always exceed expectations. Based on my reservation, they greeted me by name upon arrival, which was a pleasant surprise."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "The individual rooms make it very conducive for smaller group occasions, 6 to 10 people and have a little seperation from the main room where you aren't sitting back to back with others. Also good for small groups of 2 to 4."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "My husband and I went here for dinner on a Friday the food and service were great we will be back for sure!"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "A nice, varied menu. Loved my Portuguese seafood stew. The clams in it were tender and tasty. Chocolate gelato for dessert had a wonderful dark chocolate flavor, not too sweet."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "I just had lunch at the Red Door on Wednesday and I've already told several people that they have to go there. I personally love non-corporate, entrepreneurial restaurants that show imagination and have great food. My sister and I split a crab cake sandwich which was served on a fantastic rustic style French bread. It came with a choice of fries (regular or sweet potato) so we choose the sweet potato. They were actual sweet potatoes, not yams so although they had a sweet overtone, they were more savory. Thick cut and very good. We splurged on a ricotta cheese cake served with strawberries and had a good cup of coffee. I had a great Pinot Gris with my meals. Light, crisp, perfectly chilled. Our waitress was fun and personable."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Highly recommend this establishment for a fun night out. Great place to meet with friends or a night out with that special someone. Extensive wine and beer selection, excellent service and great food. Reservations are suggested."

  • "The Red House never fails to deliver the best in food and wine. We brought along out of town guests and they were all very pleased with their dishes and the wine pairings. Hats off the Chef Frank and his kitchen staff and to the service staff as well."

  • "Humble little spot with awesome food and a great amount of very good wine as well as beer. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "A great experience each time I go. The food and service are great. It can get a little loud and not really the place to go for privacy because of the set up but still worth it to go. I wish it was beneficial to keep this place a secret"
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "The Red House was a very respectable restaurant and tapas place. We arrived early on a Sunday for dinner. We were offered a choice of indoor our outdoor dining as it was a nice day. We chose indoor. The water arrived in a timely manner and the menu selection looked very good. My husband and I wanted tapas dining, the menu could have been a bit more expansive. We ended up with the cheese plate, olives, duck liver pate and mushrooms. Our son had the bacon wrapped filet mignon. All the food was very nicely prepared and yummy. We also ordered a bottle of Spanish wine, which was also very well priced and very nice. The service was a little slower than we might have liked, but all items were delivered at the same time. We'll be back!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I love the Red House! You can eat outside or inside, the food is always great, and so is the wine list. There is something for everyone here. I am never disappointed when I come here. We went for mother's day and had a wonderful time. "

  • "We have been to The Red House many times and we had our best meal yet last Friday night. We took friends who had never been before and they had a wonderful time. As always, it's a bit noisy, but the food was excellent!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "We have been to Red House many times and every time the food and service was excellent. Recently we had a party of 5 and had a nice roomm upstairs all to ourselves. Food was fabulous as usual and the service was perfect! From appetizers to desserts the flavors were fantastic! Good spot for families, date night, meeting with clients, and special occasions."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Red House is Renton's delicious getaway. It's tucked away behind some vegetation in the old downtown area. It's quite unassuming but whoever finds it will consider it a gem. Such great food, wine and beer to be had there!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "We went here for my birthday & I ordered Pollo something that started with an R. It was chicken wrapped with prosciutto, stuffed with spinach & mushrooms with turnip massed potatoes & asparagus - delish. My husband got the steak with fries & said average. He wanted what I ordered. Nice atmosphere of all the little rooms. You could reserve a private room. I would go back "
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "This place has amazing food. A unique wine selection along with great beers on tap and specialty beers in the bottle."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Dinner for 4, seated in the upstairs area was delicious. Wine was great, (which by the way we accidentally spilled and the waiter replaced it free of charge!) We ate Steak Medallions, a Chicken dish where the chicken was wrapped in prosciutto and Lasagna. (All delicious) The apple crisp for dessert could have been cooked a little longer (hard apples don't do well in a crisp) but overall, we will be going back. Fun, lively atmosphere!"
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "The chef is pure magic, the entree selections inspired, the wine list truly global and amazing. The Opa fish was exquisite, and I suggest trying the specials whenever possible. However, if you haven't had the Cippino fish stew yet, it is phenomenal. We asked the waiter what they made it with and he said, "It's made with Love." I truly believe that everything at the Red House is made with Love. Very knowledgable sommelier, too!"
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "My mother and I have been having dinner at The Red House every other Friday for the last couple of months. Normally, it has great service and amazing food that is in season. However, after our dinner last night our spot may be changing. My mom got the Paella and I got the mussels. The paella was very greasy and poorly prepared. The mussels that I was given for my dish had many that the shells were breaking and the mussels themselves appeared very small and deformed. The service was pretty bad as well. The waitress came by quite frequently at the beginning but then during the last half of our meal she was nowhere to be found. Even when she was coming by, she never asked us how the food was or if we needed anything. "

  • "Have been to this rest. before and always had great meals. Service great, food delicious."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Our food was amazing. Sitting amongst all those bottles of wine in a small room was quite lovely. Oru server unfortunately neglected to share any of the "specials" so we missed out on the halibut and the combo tapas plate they were offering that evening. When she spoke it was barely above a whisper. I found the individual that actually delivered our tapas plates to be quite energetic, informative and very nice...wish he has been our server. We only heard about the other items by evesdropping on a neighboring table. The portions are a good size. Overall we did really enjoy it."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Had a lovely dinner with friends this weekend at the Red House. The food was absolutely delicious. Very generous portions so be careful about ordering too much! Friendly, attentive service made for a very fun evening."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "We made dinner reservations for 6:30 and arrived a little early. They wished us a happy anniversary and seated us right away. While they always seem to be busy, the service was awesome and our waiter was focused on each of customers course timing so that they fired at just the right time to be served at a perfect pace. The menu is always wonderful and the courses we chose were excellent. This was our third time there and as foodies it is in our top ten. We highly recommend the Red House as a MUST! We had a wonderful evening, thank you!"
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "The Red House has friendly, knowledgable staff, gluten-free options, an extensive selection of wines and beers, and a wide variety of appetizers and entrees. I've been here four times and have yet to have a bad experience. The flourless chocolate torte is a good way to end the meal...and if you're looking for mac and cheese, theirs is great."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Great location and better than average food for a lunch-time business affair."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "We ordered steamed clams, polenta fries, lasagna & salmon salad - all fresh and tasty (the clam broth had a nice bite) and the portions were generous. Our server was a delightful young lady who helped us select a wonderful Malbec. I wish I lived closer to Renton. The Red House is definitely a great addition to the neighborhood!"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "This was my first visit to Red House and it will definitely NOT be my last. The beer and wine selection was amazing, the food was great! And the service was wonderful. Can't wait to go back."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We were in the area and was searching for something to eat when we came across Red House. The menu had a variety of tapas-style dishes as well as more substantial entrees. The food was good but fell short of excellent which left us feeling it was a little over-priced. The service we received was excellent and the ambience is eclectic (it is basically a converted house). They have a great wine list and a good outdoor seating area (although the view leaves a lot to be desired). This would be a great spot for drinks and tapas after work or before a night out."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "This restaurant is our go-to place. Large selection of wine and beer, can eat light or hearty, but always good. The building is an old house converted to a restaurant which gives it charm but the noise can be a little deafening depending on where you are seated and since they are often busy it is hard to get away from it. Something to work on."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "I've eaten at the Red House on numerous occasions and every time was a great experience. The food, service and setting met and continue to meet my expectations."

  • "I took my fiancé here for his birthday. We walked in and were impressed by the delicious smells, incredible wine selection, and the charming, chatty atmosphere. However, we were taken upstairs and put into an empty room the size of a bedroom. The sunlight was bright and the speaker was off, making it quiet with the fun chatter muffled in the background. Luckily, another group was placed in our room not too long later, and we were all able to make conversation and enjoy our meal. We had the macaroni and cheese with crab meat and it was amazing! We also enjoyed different brews and are excited about returning in the summer to eat on the patio! We'd recommend to anyone, but maybe they should turn the speaker up in that room."

  • "Found Red House through Yelp with great reviews, and the menu looked great, so we booked our special birthday dinner here for 3 adults. I love wine, and thought the menu would suit the other two in our crew. Red House was Spectacular! We all ended up ordering different things and sharing because each thing was and so tasty. Not to mention the incredible dessert we had after. As other reviewers have said-- the polenta fries are awesome! We started there, and I'm happy we did. The atmosphere was relaxed and fun. We had the most outstanding service as well. I really can not say enough about this place. I will definitely be back, and I've already told friends its a must go."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "When my friends want to get together for an evening of good conversation, affordable wine and outstanding food, the Red House is always at the top of our list. This little gem also sells beer and wine at retail prices, not restaurant prices, and charges a corkage fee for wine served at your table. Their mac and cheese is my favorite. I love to order it with the smoked salmon addition. Call several days ahead for reservations as this is a popular restaurant and the restaurant is small. Incidentally a huge plus is the ample parking in a safe neighborhood."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "This is one of our favorite places. We had the crab cakes and polenta fries for appetizers, the Halibut special for dinner and the Apple crisp with ice cream for dessert. We were in the "wine room" on the first floor, which is nice and quiet. All things were great as always!"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "This restaurant was one of the best we've ever been to. We tried it for the first time after receiving a gift certificate from a friend, and have since fallen in love. The food is incredible and the service is second to none. Red House boasts 800 different wines and 600 different beers. THe servers provide excellent suggestions for wine and beer pairings with the food."
