    New chef = new menu but Red Square still a fantastic place for an amazing meal, friendly service and a great atmosphere. The presentation of each dish is spectacular. And the infused vodka is always a great bet.

    A wonderful meal in great setting! Red Square exceed expectations. Small menu, but everything was excellent. Our group had the Rack of Lamb, Stroganoff, Barramundi, and Duck; after tasting them all, the Duck won out! Best Duck I've had since the Ballard Inn in Ballard, CA. Portions were large for a bistro/gourmet restaurant, but not over powering. Beet salad and artichoke soups were notable and a must try. Wine selections were “good”, but nothing noteworthy; however the offering included nice some lower priced wines. Will definite go back on my trip to Denver.

    The dinner plates are TINY, so if you are planning on a night of enjoying the wide array of infused vodkas they offer, I recommend you eat elsewhere before coming here. The food is delicious though, and perfect if you aren't planning on drinking much alcohol. The ambiance is perfect for a group of friends, with knowledgeable and friendly waiters! So fun to try the different vodkas, and the desserts are so yummy!

    Was there with a party of 5. Overall everyone enjoyed the meal. Just a couple of points: Website says the parking at night under the restaurant is $4.00. It was $10.00. Also, several of the diners said their meal could have been hotter. Other than that things were very good!

    The one page menu was pretty limited for something advertising it as a Euro bistro. It wasn't exactly any cuisine. There was a Russian item or two but with ease it could add a lot more tidbits of eastern European fare. The vodka choices was the best part of the night out.

    We dined at Red Square Euro Bistro before going to the theater. We were early diners, so the noise level was less than moderate. The staff accommodated our needs for quicker service, but did not make us feel in the least bit rushed. Our waiter answered our questions and provided useful information regarding our dinner choices and wine pairings. Two of our three diners had duck, very tender served with figs and a light duck jus sauce, potato,and broccoli. The third diner had barramundi, also nicely prepared and tasty, served with cauliflower and broccoli. Unfortunately, our theater plans precluded dessert. We will definitely return for a more leisurely dinner than includes a sweet final course.

    We were hit and miss on this one. Cool location with abundant outside seating. Ambiance, what you would expect from the name and kind of cool and comfortable. Food was good+, not to die for. The service was very good. Wine list - nice selections and well priced. Totally confused by "contemporary European cuisine" and then they are playing Old country western type music like Waylon Jennings??? ???? ???? didn't fit at all. Threw off the whole dining experience

    On this visit, as on many others over the years, the experienced staff was welcoming, knowledgable and efficient. It's selection of infused vodkas is extensive. The entrees were excellent, so the new chef and new menu continue the high quality, but the average entree price is higher. Some of the traditional dishes, dating back to its "Little Russian" days were missing on the dinner menu--and missed by us. On asking about that, we were given the bar menu which has some of the old eastern European favorites like vareniki, pelmeni and herring. Ordering some of those as appetizers retained what I view as something special that distinguishes Red Square from the many other contemporary cuisine restaurants in the are.

    Took my girlfriend here for a nice dinner before a concert at the Paramount Theater. Our waiter was very friendly, helpful, and attentive, and the food was absolutely delicious. I had the boar, which was incredibly succulent, and I tasted my girlfriend's quinoa salad that accompanied her halibut. It also was delicious. To finish off we had the lemon tart which, beyond being delicious, was presented very nicely. Would absolutely recommend to anyone who eats food.

    I have been enjoying Red Square for several years and I have to admit the food seems to be better than ever. It is a great place for a romantic dinner with warm, cheerful ambience and excellent service. The vodka infusions are delicious but there is also a good selection of wines if vodka is not your taste.

    First time here for us. Everything was exceptional from the moment we walked in door. Service outstanding; wait staff helpful and on top of everything, but not intrusive. Once eyes adjust to darkness of room, it's pretty nice. Vodka selection magnificent. Had the dill-infused vodka, served with pickles; excellent! Shared beet salad and spinach salad. Round of latkes for table; exquisite. Crispy outside, soft inside. Chicken Kiev and scallops ordered by everyone at table. Scallops perfect. Chicken Kiev was cooked perfectly and, even after we all tasted it, she still had almost half to take home. Will return as other items on menu we all want to try, plus another infused vodka martini! Beautiful Eastern European mural in bar.

    This pleasant restaurant is a short walk from the Convention Center. From the large selection of infused vodkas, I chose horseradish and my friend chose black pepper. The vodka was served with dill pickle slices, a perfect complement. We loved the pellmeni dumplings, cucumber salad, beef tenderloin stroganoff, and chicken Kiev. Service was friendly and efficient. It is tucked into Larimer Square, so it is a little hard to find, but don't give up.

    The service was wonderful but not overwhelming. Good suggestions about martinis! We each tried a different appetizer (the pelmeni is outstanding), entree and dessert and I would have been delighted with any of them. We were never rushed. Try the rack of wild boar. Their signature lemon tart is both wonderful to look at and the addition of their house made raspberry gelato was a perfect touch. All in all, I can't fault a single thing at Red Square. If you haven't been for a while, go back.

    The space is warm and inviting with great group seating options. Service was attentive, lighthearted, and not overbearing. The menu has a unique eastern European flare. The meat dumplings were outstanding as a shared appetizer. We all (a group of 5) shared our main courses because they all sounded unique and delicious. Each dish provided a well-balanced, flavorful experience though the Wild Boar and NY Strip were both over-cooked and tough. The rack of lamb, on the other hand, was perfectly prepared and one of the best lamb dishes I've had.

    I'd walked by this place many times, and had never even looked at the menu, assuming it to be a vodka bar, which is not my drink of choice. When planning a night out with my wife, the restaurant I has wanted to go to had closed, so I looked to OpenTable on which this popped up and after looking at the menu I had to check it out. I'm a sucker for lamb, which was divine, while my wife enjoyed fish (halibut I believe). They were out of the wine we wanted, but our server recommended a similar bottle that was wonderful. We sat outside, which is a pedestrian 'alley', but it was not too noisy and very clean. We certainly left 'fat and happy'!

    Discovered this restaurant about 3 months ago and had a great experience. Decided to try it again and had another great experience. The first time we dined there we sat inside and enjoyed the comfortable yet classy ambiance. The second time we choose to enjoy their outside patio. Either is a great option. The menu has a number of unique items and everything we have ordered has been outstanding. The service has been friendly, attentive and very professional. This will be a regular dining stop for us when we are in Denver.

    We had never been to Red Square before. We had friends coming in from out of town and wanted to give them a taste of downtown Denver. Based on others recommendations on Open Table, we decided to give Red Square a try. They didn't disappoint. The food was excellent and our server was very attentive. It was a beautiful night, so we sat outside. The restaurant is a bit hard to find because it is in the center of Larimer Square.

    We chose Red Square because our group of 4 professionals wanted to discuss a book on Central and Eastern Europe between WWI and WWII. Wanted some ethnic Slavic food. It was very good service and food, very friendly and welcoming, and not too loud on a Monday night early dinner. The Lamp Pop appetizers were a solid hit, as was the steak and stroganoff. Great vodka selection, and perfect Russian Standard Marini's. Would visit again.
