Best in Service and Asian CuisineThe Red Lantern has become our favorite restaurant in Boston. Not only is everything we try delicious, but also the service staff and management know the true meaning of customer service, making each time we visit a more perfect dining experience. It's become our new place to bring out-of-town guests.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA step above the rest!Red Lantern is a restaurant unlike any other in the greater Boston area. The food and drinks are top notch, creative and fairly-priced. The service is amazing; our server was friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. Above all, the ambiance is what stood out for me. Absolutely gorgeous venue and somewhere that everyone needs to check out.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMJust GreatGo ahead and order one of their specialty sushi rolls, you'll be glad you did. Everything was awesome. Loved it! We'll be back for sure.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSushi was awesome, as wereSushi was awesome, as were the appetizers. My wife and I would have never gone to this restaurant if we had not found it on Gilt City as a coupon. Prices were about average for an upscale sushi restaurant. Our only complaint would have to fall in the drink category. If we would have paid the $11 plus price for a small, watery drink, I would have been more upset. I realize that restaurants make a lot off of alcohol, but in such a small glass filled mostly with ice, I feel that was unacceptable. That being said, the sushi and appetizers were very unique and very well made, making it a positive experience.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAWESOMERed Lantern has become one of our very favorite places.

It can be a little overcrowded nowadays but it remains, in my opinion, the place for young adults (25-45) to see and be seen.
Great place to hang out after work or grab dinner.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a fantastic time here!We had a fantastic time here! Our server, Jonathan (I hope I got that right), was amazing!

Looking forward to returning soon.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went as a family of fourWe went as a family of four and we all had a very good experience. The food variety was good and practically everything we ordered was good. I think the menu could use a couple of more vegetarian items for the non-meat eaters in the group. The service was great as well. Overall a very good experience!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, great place!Very friendly,attentive, enthusiastic and knowlegable servers. I went with my gal friends for dinner and drinks. At one point they asked us to switch tables so that they could seat a large party. We happily did so, and they gave us a free round of drinks for doing so! My friends and I were impressed with the servers' knowledge of the menu. I would highly recommend this place for either a fun night with a group of friends or a date.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was amazing. TheThe food was amazing.

It was a lot of fun to see all the dishes being made and the amount of prep work that goes into the meals. Everyone was very friendly and if we wanted to know what ingredients the chef was using, we would just ask and he was able to fill us in.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, very energetic,Great service, very energetic, loved the vibe and tunes.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellant service waiter wasexcellant service waiter was very attentive..the food was very good..did not care for the appetizer and drinks were watered down and on the sweet side..3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this place!This was my third time celebrating a family occasion at the Red Lantern.

We really love this place.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night outCelebrated my B-day there. 3 out of 4 of us scored their meal a 9 or 10! Unfortunatly mine was a 6. I had the drunken noodles. Very generous portion but bland, super spicy doesnt give it flavor, just made it hot. Everyone else LOVED their dish. Atmousphere and vibe was outstanding. Drinks are outrageously expensive, but that seems to be the new norm. Service was excellent, very noisey but I attribute that to the younger clientel which gives it such a great vibe. Would definitly go back again.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and we allExcellent service and we all enjoyed the variety of dishes.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMit is my favorite go to restaurantit is my favorite go to restaurant for any outing with friends.
