    The food was delicious. My wife and I both ordered the filet and we have never had such a tender steak before. The service was great and within my OpenTable reservation I noted it was my wife's birthday and they surprised us by bringing a dessert out with a candle congratulating her (on the house as well). This made for a great memory as the dinner was a surprise to her and we both had never eaten at this restaurant.

    I took my friend, who was in from out of town, to Red as a sort of relaxing, de-stressing wonderful dining experience and we were not disappointed! My friend said it was the most delicious food she had ever had, as evidenced by the fact that she ate everything on the plates except the design! Whenever my late husband asked me where I wanted to go for my birthday or our anniversary, my answer was always Red. It continues to be one of my all-time favorite restaurants.

    Outstanding service: Attentive without being overbearing. Highly recommend the steaks, the side of the creamed corn with cornbread, and "donut holes" for dessert. Some of the tables are rather close together along a bench-seating wall. Poor signage to locate: go to the parking lot to the right of Moxie, and the entrance is rather hidden at the end of Moxie patio.

    I had stopped ordering steak in restaurants because I had never found a place that can do better than what I can do at home. Notice how I said, “had.” Truly one of the best steaks of my life. The rest of the meal was equally amazing. To top it all off, we had a remarkable waitress who took great care of us. She made a special occasion a remarkable occasion. Our compliments to the entire team at Red.

    I hadn't been to RED for about 8 years (I live out of state), but its reputation remains superb. My date and I each had a small filet (medium rare) with creamed corn (what a delicious surprise!) and the filet's couldn't have been prepared any better - superb! I was "disappointed" that the roasted brussel sprouts were not yet available - but we'll order that next time. Our waiter was most helpful choosing a wine - being from California I prefer heartier Point Noir's but the waiter recommended a Chehalem from Oregon that was much lower in tannin's. It was an excellent meal - and most importantly... she loved it!

    Red is a great restaurant. Last Sunday I had dinner with a visitor from Northern California. We had a great dinner; our steaks were as good as I've ever tasted with a great wine list and excellent side dishes. The escalopes potatoes were the best tasting I've ever eaten. I will be back. My guest, who is a real foodie snob was very complimentary (and I suspect surprised).

    I have gone to RED a number of times during the year (min 10 times). During the last three times I have been there, It seems I am seeing a transformation in their quality of food (lower quality) and their portion sizes (reduction) while raising prices. Alhtough the service has remained very good through this, if Red price increases and lower quality continues we will go somewhere else. The strip steaks we ordered did not seem any better than Costco steaks and for the price I pay at Red I could 4 of them. The steak and the tuna tartare were excellent. The sides were good but very frugal with the amount. The salads that we ordered were good, but for $12 and $9 they were side salads in my opinion and way too expensive for that size.

    Salt is not an ingredient! It is a seasoning. The filet having a salty taste is forgivable. Crab legs and lobster should never taste overly salty. I wish I knew to ask for less salt in preparation. Now I know! The atmosphere and service was fantastic!! But the salt factor was disheartening. All four of us commented on it. Ages 28, 40, 65, 85. Noticeable to all.

    For our first wedding anniversary we wanted to try somewhere new. After reading reviews on Urban Spoon and Yelp we decided on Red. it was a little difficult to find but well worth the search. The food was great. The service was even better. It wasn't cheap but for our anniversary we didn't mind.

    We ate here to celebrate our 7 year wedding anniversary. It was very nice and accommodating! The air was blowing right by our table and they turned it down upon request to make us more comfortable. My only suggestion is that they make sure all their servers know the specials of the day. Also be able to explain the menu a little better. It was our first time and didn't really realize that everything was al a carte and was served family style. But Overall loved the place and the food!!!! Would definately go back again!!

    The service was excellent. We were in a corner and noise level was fine. When softened butter came it was melted. Not good. The plating of our steaks was very plain. One steak in middle of large white plate looked lonely and not as appetizing as the steak tasted.

    One of my favorite places to eat in Cleveland and definitely my favorite spot for special occasion meals. The service is always outstanding -- courteous, thoughtful, attentive but not overly intrusive. The food never fails to impress - expertly prepared, pleasing but not ostentatious presentation, and, of course, delicious. I have been dining here for years and expect to continue to do so and now that there is a second location in town, probably more frequently. There are a number of excellent steak houses in town and this one is at the top of the list.

    Whether it's for business, a special occasion or a nice evening out, Red never disappoints. And such was the case for us when we celebrated my husband's 60th birthday. Rich, our server, was terrific and provided just the right amount of attention throughout the amazing meal...down to the incredible doughnuts he brought us as a complimentary dessert. Red is a true gem in Beachwood and well as downtown Cleveland.

    ForeverFansofFire
    Dined on 6/28/2014
    Service was excellent but, for the price, we expected higher quality meals in both preparation and flavor. The ambiance at least was very nice. The French Onion soup was vinegary. It tasted like they may have used Marsala wine in it. It was not my favorite. The shrimp cocktail was good. Entrees were Fresh Live Lobster, Veal Chop Milanese, and 8oz USDA prime aged filet w/Oscar topping. Sides were Mushroom medley, Creamed Corn and Risotto. The Lobster was overcooked/"rubbery" and the Veal chop was, sadly, tough chewy. The steak Oscar was great. Corn and Mushrooms were great, Risotto could have been more flavorful, wine selection was first rate. I will again say we enjoyed the ambiance but, as a "foodie" I won't be rushing back soon...

    This is a great restaurant, but don't go on a Saturday night, they are too busy and you do not get attentive service. Our salads were forgotten, and their was a long time lapse between appetizers and the salads that were forgotten until he said the entrees were almost ready and I said we didn't get the salads and then he blamed the kitchen.

    The atmosphere was warm and romantic but could also be great for friends and family to meet. We were nervous we would be underdressed but as long as we wore nice jeans and a nice top (a button down for my boyfriend), we fit in well. The menu had a variety of options, each one of them tempting! The sides on the menu are served family style so although they may seem pricey, they can serve 2-4 people. The steak was exceptional and both the wine and beer list were impressive! Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu, especially the steak and wine and offered wonderful suggestions. She even surprised us with complimentary fresh donut holes to top off our celebration! I would absolutely dine here again!

    Food was absolutely delicious, and a steak lovers dream. Was diappointed because wife is lactose intolerant and even though restaurant was informed of this when reaervation was made and when order was placed...her dish still ended up with melted cheese on it. AFTER the error was made, the staff was very apologetic and did make it up to us. Overall satisfactory dining experience.

    Finding the restaurant was a challenge, so our first visit got off to a bumpy start. Neither our GPS or MapQuest got us there. We arrived 15 minutes before closing, but the hostess was lovely and made us feel welcome. Although the menu was standard for a steak house, everything was prepared exceptionally well. The wine on special, a 2008 Meritage from Sonoma County, was absolutely lovely and more affordable at $70 than the wines in the menu. Pricey, but worth it!

    Redfish special was tender, not fishy or old. Chopped salad was flavorful and the anchovies added just enough saltiness to make it distinctive and not ordinary. My husband usually orders the tuna which has become a go-to for him every time we come to this restaurant. We were a party of four and the 4 doughnut hole option for dessert was a perfect ending which provided sweetness without the uncomfortable full feeling.

    The food was fantastic and the service even better! Not steak eaters, we came here anyway based on the selection of other items to choose from, and we were not disappointed. Calamari, salads, and two pasta dishes later, we were very satisfied. The bread was also outstanding! Although a family had two very noisy toddlers, which really negatively impacted our special occasion, we certainly do not blame the restaurant - actually the wait staff were doing more to try to quiet and entertain the toddlers than the parents were! All things IN CONTROL OF the staff were fantastic.

    My husband and I took my parents to Red to celebrate their 40th anniversary. We had a wonderful evening. Our waiter was attentive and very knowledgable without being over-the-top. The food was fantastic. Each steak was cooked to perfection. The selection of sides is great, and they come ready to share. Same with the salads. The cheese plate appetizer was amazing. It's a bit on the pricey side, but worth every penny. We'll definitely be returning.
