A word from Red Lantern CT
Red Lantern is unlike anything Foxwoods has ever seen before. With a capacity of 225 people, Red Lantern is modeled after its sister property in Boston, and features a redesigned open kitchen, full sushi counter and lounge area. Once again designed by the award-winning Peter Niemitz, the space also features 66 lanterns hanging overhead with the entrance marked by oversized, red ceremonial doors. Featuring a large leather, wraparound couch, high-back red club chairs, black tufted club chairs and acupuncture lamp statues throughout, Red Lantern Connecticut has the same feel so many have fallen in love with, in its Boston counterpart.

    Spent $150 on burnt ribeye, overcooked asparagus, disgusting mashed potato sticks and frozen lobster tail. Overpriced for a half start restaurant. Server took our appetizer right out from under us, as I was trying to eat and didn't even ask if we were done with it. The ambience was nice. It's an Asian fusion joint and all they had was one Asian beer on the menu. Too noisy to even have a conversation because the music was blaring. This would be a cool place to hang out at the bar but never eat at. I wouldn't go back and I wouldn't recommend it. It was a waste of money and time. Save yourself some money and go get a better steak at Outback or Longhorns. Their steaks are better and service probably is too.

    Food is excellent although some dishes might be slightly overpriced. I am a frequent customer at the Foxwoods location. It could get quite crowded in the evening because of shows or the night club downstairs. Noise level could get pretty loud at times. If you like a quiet dinner, go earlier in the evening.

    Beautiful decor, good and attentive service mostly, nice cocktails and wine list. Food is also inventive and interesting but honestly does not have that pizzazz. Both rolls we ordered were nothing special, despite their price tag ($15-$17). The rice bites were interesting, but the rice part of it was too thick and left us chewing for what felt like ages - it overwhelmed the wonderful tuna on top. The stone platter was cool but for $24 and 6 pieces of meat/fish, also over-priced. The spicy edamame was very good though!

    Food was Good. I had the Surf and Turf and the Philly Roll to start. Rice on Philly roll was very sticky, but otherwise okay. Steak and Lobster was FANTASTIC! Steak was cooked to perfection! Our waiter was very busy, which took away from his attentiveness at our table of 8. Great music and ambiance. I recommend this place to everyone!

    We came for dinner before a show at Foxwoods and it was great--close to the theater entrance and right off the Fox Tower casino. Our dinner reservations were relatively early (by casino standards) so it was quiet when we first arrived but began to fill in more as time went on. A bachelorette party came in, some families were seated--a wide variety of patrons... All in all our experience was wonderful. Great ambiance and the food was divine. We did have to flag our server down a few times to order more drinks, however, this wasn't much of an issue for us since we were taking our time at dinner. I'd recommend this place!

    Entering the Lantern was just as it should be...inviting. From the hostesses smile to the exotic decor we felt comfortable immediately. We quickly decided on the endless sushi. Our waiter was exceptional, giving as much information as needed on each and every item available. The spicy tuna roll and shrimp tempura will not disappoint and were bursting with flavor and texture. The cool California roll was the perfect marriage providing the cool note to the sushi parade. Wednesday is the only day that this special is available and we strongly suggest it for sushi aficionados. If sushi is not your cup of tea there are plenty of wonderful choices on the Lanterns menu. The couple on our left loved their steak offering. Our advice...Just Go!

    Red Lantern has really great food. Off of the Casino, it's very lively and relatively noisy, which is fine unless you rather not have that kind of atmosphere. Service is knowledgeable of menu and quick.

    We went before a show at Foxwoods. Our drinks were ok, nothing special, actually a little weak. My husband and I both had appetizers off of their specials. His curry calamari was overcooked, but nicely flavored. My Salmon Tartar Tacos were actually quite tasty, but their was more mango than salmon. My husband loved his duck, but unfortunately my Short Rib Stir Fry had no real taste. The meat could have been anything, although the broccolli (must have been a whole head!) was very good. Too many good places to eat at Foxwoods to go back, so we won't be eating there again.

    Food is definitely over priced and not the best, but it is a fun ambiance to spend time in to get away from the casino floors. Lo mein was weird, chewy, and very greasy, but the sushi was ok and effort was put into the presentation. Seems like it is best for going for some drinks and lounging.

    Was really excited to have dinner in what appeared to be a cool place but it was nothing more than a facade. The sushi rolls were mostly rice and nothing special. The rock shrimp appetizer was so small it was like eating bait. The pork filled grief dumplings were OK. Mostl offensive was our table was sticky from layers of grease that you could even smell.

    I reserved this restaurant at 5:00 to give us time for a relaxed dinner before our 7:00 show. We went for a glass of wine while waiting. As I had not finished my wine I carried it to the restaurant where they confiscated it. We ordered 2 appetizers and one main dish, letting the waiter know that we were sharing everything. Our appetizers came within a few seconds of each other, and our main dish came immediately. We complained that we were in the middle of our appetizers. Our waiter apologized and promised that he would have a new one made when we were ready. The main dish reappeared as soon as appetizers were cleared. It was obvious that the dish was not re-made. The fish was dry around the edges and the vegetables were soggy.
