A word from Red Sea Restaurant
Red Sea has been in business since the mid 80’s providing authentic Eritrean/Ethiopian food. We provide the same quality meal that would be prepared in our home. We hold ourselves to the highest standard in introducing the most unique family style meal to the Bay Area. Since the opening of the restaurant, East African cultural integration to the diversified Bay Area population was welcomed with open arms. Red Sea Restaurant has introduced Eritrean/Ethiopian history and tradition in all aspect. Some of the cultures that we value and introduced to the Bay Area deal with family values as well as the idea of sharing meal together. As a family owned restaurant, we strive for excellence and provide the kind of service that would make our costumer come back again. Serving same traditional meal that would be expected in every Eritrean/Ethiopian family would have at home during lunch or dinner. Red sea restaurant has a unique way of bringing families together.Continued

- MikeVIPDined on 8/30/2014I ordered the house wine and they were out of it. We ordered Humus and they were out of humus. How could you be out of humus at a Ethopian restaurant!!! We will not be returning to this place anytime soon.

- Gem at the end of Claremont Ave.BarrancaDined on 9/28/2012A little gem at the end of Claremont Ave. Easy parking, great menu and perfect recommendations.

- Bad Services but Good FoodOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/13/2012I had a living social deal. It was not on the deal description, but they required us to get a bottle of wine which was about $24. So, what we got with the deal was a bottle of wine. Also, the waitress did not speak English. I asked for an African merlot first which they didn't have. Then I asked for an African chardonnay which she said they had. What I got was a Californian chardonnay. Beside the services, the food was fantastic.
