Diner Reviews
  • "red consistently provides terrific food in an upscale yet comfortable manner. The service was attentive and overall the experience was very enjoyable."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Great dinner at Red. Server was friendly and efficient...made an excellent suggestion for an appetizer. Food was great...nice size portions...barramundi special was tasty. Monday night is $20 for a bottle of wine...fantastic deal. Have dined at Red many times and will definitely go back!! Only suggestion would be to have a more diverse dessert menu...kind of boring... so my husband and I only ordered a coffee and a cappucino."

  • "This has been one of my favorite restaurants in my community and I feel that the dinner was very poor. The salmon was barely edible. I hope this was an aberration."

  • "We don't remember this place being so spectacular...is there a new chef in the house? The wine list was great - we had a Syrah from Sonoma. The appetizer list was hard to choose from because everything looked so good. We finally decided to split the lobster rolls. They were sensational! Then we moved onto a warm goat cheese and arugula salad that was delicious. We both decided on one of the specials - the Halibut dish. It had to be the best Halibut that we have ever had...as a matter of fact, this is probably the best meal that we have ever had in any area restaurant!!! And of course, what could be better than splitting a piece of red velvet cheese cake for desert!!! We can't wait to return!!!"

  • "Seating is ridiculously close together. Great ambiance drowned out by the conversation of the people sitting, practically with you, to your right and left. Appetizer of shrimp cocktail - shrimp were small and seemed frozen not fresh, nothing to write home about. Entree of encrusted tuna was fantastic. Seating is way too tight for the price you pay."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Food was below par to say the least, not to mention that when our main course came to the table it was warm at best. The service was the worst I have ever received in my entire 30 years of eating out. So bad, that I left a 10% tip and that was extremely generous."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The décor is trendy but the lack of isolation meant that every time the front door opened, a cold blast of air would enter the bar and dining room. The menu was good, nice wine list, but the food was unremarkable. Not bad, mind you – just nothing to recommend. I ordered the filet mignon and my wife ordered the scallops. The steak was ordered medium rare, came out so overcooked that it went back, came out the second time rare, which was more or less ok, but still not as ordered. The side dish, cauliflower au gratin, was very good. The scallops were ok – but again, nothing to come back for. Price was reasonable for the area, but this type of restaurant/food/value is a dime a dozen. Would gladly have paid more for a memorable experience."

  • "$30 for 3 courses is a really good deal. Everything we had was delicious and nicely presented. Drinks are expensive which of course adds to the total. Will definitely be back."

  • "I enjoyed the ambiance and the attentive service. I had the ravioli and I am looking forward to having it again. My date had the filet mignon and enjoyed it. The dining was at a relaxed pace."

  • "This was our first visit to Red. We were seated upstairs in a small dining section with Simon as our waiter. The menu and specials were well described and everything sounds amazing. We had the special Red grilled cheese, a sushi roll and the goat cheese salad for apps. Everything was fresh and had excellent flavor. My husband had the steak special for dinner and I had the pork chop, both were delicious. We were too full for dessert, but there were some nice choices. Simon was an awesome server, made a great night even better. Looking forward to returning!"

  • "We went to red on a sunday night for my dad's birthday. We've been here before, and have never had a bad experience and this night was no different. Our table ordered different signature cocktails that everyone loved! For appetizers we split some sushi rolls and they were delicious! (especially front street roll) I had the scallops and my dad had the tuna. The sea food was fresh and full of flavor. We even finished the night off with the chocolate dessert which was also amazing!. Red is a great restaurant that has consistantly top notch service, food and drinks. I highly recommend to anyone!"

  • "My wife and I went to Red after a show at Count Basie. We had a reservation for 6:30 and were seated promptly. Our waitress arrived at the table just a few shirt moments after. She was very attentive and had great knowledge of the menu. I ordered the French onion soup, and she the flat bread. Both were outstanding. For dinner she ordered the wharf street roll and the reckless street roll. She raved about both. I ordered the chocolate this chile short rib, the best short rib I have ever eaten. The ambience of Red is awesome , noise level was fine for a Saturday night. We weren't rushed at all and left very satisfied. Definitely recommend Red!"

  • "Food quality was outstanding; service was marginal. Our server was personable but it didn't appear she was ever trained. Our waters were not refilled and she failed to bring my wife's glass of wine; it appeared she had too many tables to service. Additionally, when they brought my wife soup, they failed to provide a spoon. As we waited patiently as the soup formed a skin, we eventually flagged her down and she brought a table spoon (not soup spoon). When my wife said "thanks", her reply was "no problem". Yet in my opinion there was a problem.? We expect exceptional service when dining at a quality restaurant. We still left a 25% tip understanding that her lack of attention was likely not her fault but the fault of those who trained her."

  • "Had dinner with my husband. Cocktails were amazing and so was my husbands dish of crusted Tuna, but my chocolate thai short ribs wth coconut risotto was terrible. There was no bone on the plate and it was very bland and tasted like pot roast. Short ribs is one of my favorite dishes so I know what its suppose to taste like. Also service was spotty as our waitress did not advise to us on specials or the flavors of the butters put on the table with the bread. Yet the other waiters did this for their tables as we overheard and was disappointed as we would of like to try the specials. We will give Red one more try since we have heard such good things about it."

  • "Had an early New Year's Eve dinner - sat in the upstairs dining room - very nice atmosphere. This was our third or fourth visit - the food is very good, the restaurant is very attractive - tables in the main dining room are a little close to each other but the noise level is not bad. Service is very attentive. Will definitely return."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We,ve been at RED many times. Each time was very enjoyable. The waitress we had this time knew what our drinks and appetizers were before we said anything. She was so nice and courteous. We really did appreciate having her as a waitress. All and all I would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Red offers delicious seafood and sushi. Their offerings include original combinations you won't find other places. Great for any occasion including dinner before a show at Count Basie."

  • "I ordered one of the specials of the evening - Baramundi. This Australian fish, which is one of my favorites, was done perfectly. We had never been to Red before, but we will certainly go back."

  • "Went to Red for the first time on Sunday night. The food was fantastic - a real surprise after reading some of the recent reviews. We each had something different and were very pleased. Plus, Sunday is 1/2 price glass of wine - an unexpected bonus. Our server was charming, very helpful but overall the service was a little slow - especially considering that the place was almost empty - so who knows how long you'd need to wait on a busy Saturday or Friday night but we had a very relaxing and tasty meal. Will definitely go back again."

  • "Never been to Red but found the ambiance very nice. I noticed Open tables is listed specials and noted they had a pre-fixxe for $30 tonight (Wednesday). Sushi appetizer was excellent and enjoyed the salmon and bok choi. Typically don't eat dessert but came with meal which too was good. By the way, they had a bread selection with a carrot butter and some time of oil that was fantastic! Yum! They also offered a pairing of wines for $15. The wines chosen were pretty good but small poors of ~ 2oz. Would have preferred selecting my own glass to appreciate over the entire meal. All in all, I was pleased with the meal!"
