    Our service and server was absolutely phenomenal. I was very impressed and felt pampered which was perfect for a well deserved night out. The manager on duty was very attentive and we enjoyed everything from start to finish. This is my favorite place to dine as of yet in cleveland- it is well worth every dollar and one of the best steaks I have ever had - keep up the great work- we all lived out experience!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/21/2014
    The experience was less than mediocre. I have received a better meal and experience at the Red in Beachwood. Thank god the staff was nice as it was the only thing that saved the evening. We booked online, asked for a booth, were told at check in we would be getting a booth but the sat at in the center of the room by the service area. There was an empty booth ready and remained empty for our entire service. When I asked if we could have a booth when they sat us we were offered to "wait" at the bar again????????? My steak the RIBEYE was mediocre. I have had a much better steak and dining experience at Morton's, Hyde park and Red-Beachwood. Not sure what happened this evening but I am pretty sure we will not be going back!!

    Service was excellent and accommodating; attentive but not hovering. Food was good. A steak is a steak, not an evocative eating experience. It is expected to be go good quality, well prepared and tender. Ours were all of the above. The Calmari Appetizer was outstanding. Best I've had. Extremely tender and tasty.

    Like the Cavaliers, even a great restaurant can have an off night. I ordered the same well done filet I always get at Red, but for some reason the chef completely torched the life out of it. Even the parsley fries were on the burnt side. Just not up to the usual quality. Maybe too much pressure with the pregame crowd? Since I know they know better, we'll try again.

    This is a premium place for steak- You pay a premium for high quality beef.. Everything is a la carte, so be prepared to have your wallet lightened. The place is filled with business types on expense accounts. Overlook the pretentiousness and you will be pleased with the steak. Extensive, expensive wine list. Classic upscale steakhouse. Reserve this for splurge occasions.

    Red downtown certainly has the feel of a trendy big city restaurant. The staff was well versed on the menu and the bartenders on both the menu and drinks. We were warmly welcomed at the bar and the great experience continued at our window table. Service and food,was great. Sure, dinner may set you back a few $$, but next time your downtown for a show or special occasion, I'd highly recommend red.

    My mom, sisters and I visited Red for the first time to start off a girls weekend. It couldn't have been better! John, our server, was fantastic. He kept the drinks coming, made excellent food recommendations and overall made the evening just wonderful. The food was delicious. My steak was cooked perfectly and seasoned well. The calamari appetizer and side dishes (including the tater tots, truffled whipped potatoes and broccoli) were delicious. We will definitely be visiting again!

    The food, drinks, service, presentation, and atmosphere was top notch! By the way, that was the best Moscato! I enjoyed the salmon and others loved the short rib of beef that melt in you mouth. Dessert was delish, we had the cheesecake and chocolate brownie that leaked warm chocolate and home-made ice cream. This was our first time at Red and we will no doubt be back to try other dishes! Will definitely refer family and friends.

    Had a special night to celebrate at Red, the Steakhouse Cleveland and was surprised that the waiter did not make mention of it. We came for the Restaurant Week and was thrilled that we could upgrade the one meal...so, we got the ribeye from the menu and the Braised Beef from the Restaurant Week choice as the entree...phenomenal braised beef - the best I have eaten in a very long time. We both got salads with their RED salad dressing - YUM and the candied walnuts were small in quantity but delicious. We also had the garlic fries-WOW and the risotto with mushrooms and spinach-another WOW. The desserts - the chocolate lava cake - definitely a 10 and the RED cheesecake - it was good, but I have received more rave reviews from my cheesecake.

    Truly fantastic food. Our server was very nice. But knew nothing about the wines other than to say "the house blends are bold." Bold, everyone's favorite and go to buzzword. He also knew nothing about the specials--fumbling through his book of notes. When you're paying the prices they charge, you expect the entire experience to be fabulous. We were celebrating my sons 16th birthday. The manager did send out a fabulous dessert. Which made my sons evening!

    My husband and I loved our experience at Red (Cleveland)! It didn't seem like a busy evening for the restaurant (being that it was Halloween and the weather was cold and rainy) which was very lucky for us. The food was amazing, we both had steak and two yummy sides of brussels sprouts and truffle whipped potatoes. I would say Red has the best steak in Cleveland right now! We will always love Hyde Park, but Red did an amazing job. The drinks were very good as well and the service was very friendly and attentive.

    This was our first visit to Red downtown, and it's every bit as special as the one in Beachwood. Although I wasn't thrilled that we were seated in the bar (yes, I could have said something and didn't), it was quiet and very posh. The menu is varied, but we both went for the steaks, and both were superb--the filet and the strip. Many sides are offered, and we were very impressed with the mushrooms and potatoes. Salads were excellent, as was the pumpkin bread pudding. A complimentary birthday dessert was provided--a very nice touch! Service was outstanding---unobtrusive but evident. Yes, it's very expensive---$15 for a martini and $17 for a glass of wine, but you know that if you've been to the other location. Super special spot!

    I let them know it was my 25th anniversary and that my wife liked strawberries. That was it. Each person greated us and made a point of saying happy anniverary: the manager, bus-boys, people passing. We received strawberries with our champagne and in our dessert as well as other surprises. There were little things they did that made our night. My wife was pleased and that was the most important thing. Of course the food is was outstanding but the service is what really made the night special.

Food was ok, not great For over $500 for 2 people for dinner (we did have a $200 bottle of wine) I expected a better experience. Waiter was so unfriendly he was almost rude. I've been to Red several times (Beachwood much better) but there are too many other good restaurants to put up with a bad experience

    I recently brought two business associates, one from Manhattan, the other from Columbus, to Red for what I promised would be a special evening. Red did not disappoint. After an opening bottle of Far Niente, we started with the tartare and stuffed peppers, and finished with the prime rib eye accompanied by creamed spinach and pappardelle, washed down by a wonderful bottle of Silver Oak Cabernet. And as amazing as the food was, the service was even better. Don't hesitate to have Red host the most important meals of your life.

    My CAB beef kabob skewers were not cooked to temperature as ordered. My colleague ordered medium rare, I ordered medium well. Both plates served medium rare. For a highly touted steakhouse, unacceptable. The server should have seen the pile of medium rare pieces and recalled that I ordered medium well, and offered to fix. That would be 5 star attentiveness and service. Or at least stopped back to ask if everything was cooked to our liking. Besides the beef preparation, I found the wedge salad to be very sparse in it's pricey ingredients (pancetta and blue cheese) Plentiful amount of red onions though... The salad was not well balanced as a result. Very disappointing, I would not return for lunch.

    This is a great restaurant, but really overpriced. To start with, the valet parking is $15. and that is without the tip. The drinks, appetizers, sides, and main courses are all overpriced. I think that Red in Beachwood is a much better value. For one thing, you don't have to pay for valet parking!
