    We were a group of six celebrating a very special birthday. They located us in one of the small private rooms - it was wonderful. The service was very good and the food was excellent. The menu is large but has a very good variety - something for everyone's taste. There were several different eating spaces, including a charming outdoor area.

    We often go to the Red House for special occasions and we got the usual great service, great wine and great food this time as always. The food menu is somewhat limited so we usually end up eating one of the specials or a usual favorite from the regular menu. I don't know how many wines they have to choose from but I think there must be more than 500. We usually manage to find at least a decent bottle of wine, usually better than just decent.

    The food here is excellent. The wine list is wonderful. Dining inside an old house is what makes it unique. The rooms are still in place, so there are just a few tables in each room. The floors creak when you walk and the walls are untouched. It's a bit like dining at grandma's back in the day with better food and wine. There is always someone at the entrance with a warm welcome, and the service is very friendly.

    We had reservations for 3 diners at 6:30pm on a Thursday. Our waitress was very nice, personable, knowledgeable - overall very good. However, our appetizers, entrees, and desserts took longer than they probably should have (we finally left after 9pm) - and the excuse de jour was 'we have (had) a big party upstairs so we're backed up in the kitchen.' Once we've been told this - which is perfectly legitimate - fine, we don't need to be constantly told by everyone. Great, you're busy - do what you can (which I believe was being done), but then get on with it (maybe comp an appetizer for the wait?) The pork chop that night was excellent!

    A hip spot in downtown Renton. The Red House has great tapas and an awesome selection of international beer. You can choose your beer from the little room in the middle of the house and ask your server to chill it for you. Delicious tapas - especially the mushrooms and the bruschetta! Our server was very friendly and patient as our 'after work' get together group sat on the patio and took our time with the vast array of yummy food selections. I would highly recommend this restaurant! Ask for a table on the patio during one of our hot summer nights...its shaded by 5:00pm!

    My husband and I find here last year on a much needed kid free dinner. More recently we took my parents to The Red House for dinner ( they were visiting from VA). Both times the food was incredible and the service was attentive. They do not have a kids menu, but they did alter a menu item to the liking of my 7 year old. I have recommended this restaurant to many friends in our area.

    Like McDonalds you can always count on The Red House for consistency (actually, I haven't eaten at McDonalds in years!). The key difference of course is the food of which The Red House wins hands down with virtually every meal off of it's diverse menu. The service is generally very good though some of their staff are notably more knowledgeable about the menu and wines than others. I would estimate we have eaten here over a dozen times now with events ranging from family events of 12-16 people to intimate meals with just my wife and I or a pair of friends. We're never disappointed! My favorites: Moroccan Muscles, any of their tappas, lamb burger, never mind, it's all great!

    Red House is truly the neighborhood gem. The wine list, the friendly staff, the amazing food never disappoint. Wether it's a rainy day or a beautiful day its always seasonally perfect whether you're stopping in for a quick wine/beer or appetizer or a long social meal. A great ambiance for friends to share and staff that is warm and personable and so helpful with wine choices and suggestions of new wines.

    I had driven past the Red House for several years, just thinking it is a wine shop. When friends visited from out of town we decided to try it. It is allot more than just a wine shop. The food is excellent with a surprising offering of dishes that are not what one would have expected. I will go back, and it is a nice place to take a small group for an intimate dinner. The boarding house setting means that if you eat inside you will most likely have a private room. The patio is great, and shaded, which helps in the summer in Seattle.

    This restaurant was a great find on our visit. In a little neighborhood location the outside dining was great. The wine list is extensive with all the different bottle selections throughout the restaurant. Jeff Andrew has an excellent selection of wines for diner as well as for direct purchase. We enjoyed several small plates and the dessert? The ricotta cheesecake was a hit as well as the pistachio gelato. When back in town for another trip will make this a stop and recommend it to our local friends

    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.

    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.

    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.
