Diner Reviews
  • "It's a great place to go for a good steak in downtown Cleveland. It's a good idea to make a reservation well in advance for a weekend night as they were booked solid past 9pm when we went. I had the 8oz filet which was outstanding. My wife loved the Mac & Cheese side. I will say some of the menu items were a miss. The risotto was "blah" as was the bernaise steak sauce. They should add a red wine reduction sauce to go with the perfectly done filet steaks. Would definitely go back for the steaks."

  • "My wife and I recently went to Red, The Steakhouse, for our anniversary dinner. This was our first time dining at Red and it left a lasting impression on both of us. From the drinks, apps, entrees, and special desert they gave us for our first visit, the food was spectacular. The service was notable as well and earned high praise from us for their attention to detail. We highly recommend this restaurant and we will visit again soon."

  • " I do not want to write a review. Most restaurants I go too, especially the privately owned ones are pretty good. Yet, I like to offer positive criticism to make them better. Yet, most managers and owners do not want to hear about it."

  • "We're from NY the steakhouse capital of the world. This was one of the best steakhouses I ever went to. From start to finish A++. Steak was amazing. Dohnuts for dessert were a special treat. Not to be missed if you are in Cleveland and like steakhouses"

  • "Went to Reds with my Wife. We both had amazing Ribeyes. Very good steaks cooked perfect. The tomato salad was great and can be shared like an appetizer. Cream corn and fries were good, but the risotto was amazing. We really had no complaints. It was a weekday and not a huge crowd, but very busy. Everything still went very smooth. We will be back. Watch out Blue Point Grill, Reds is doing it better!"

  • "We have been to Red in Beachwood several times and have been impressed every single time! The downtown location, in my opinion, outdoes the original restaurant. The decor is just as sleek but being able to watch the city come to life as you are dining is another experience in itself! Our server was extremely efficient and friendly! He turned me on to Nolfin's gin which is now my favorite gin of choice! The steaks are still the best I've had in Cleveland....so if you are looking for a wonderful space with great food this place is it!!"

  • "This restaurant has some of the best cuts of prime steak and veal in the city! I would stay away from the appetizers, the quantity/quality do not warrant the cost. Service was on point. Staff was attentive and resourceful."

  • "Celebrated my daughter's birthday here. They added to the event by placing us at booth near windows to catch the urban vibe and then surprised us with a complimentary donut dessert to share. Divine. Word of caution the sides are huge so share!"

  • "We went for our anniversary and my husband ordered the filet and I ordered the lobster, both were phenomenal ! Also, we got the gnocchi side dish which was amazing ! For dessert the lava cake was awesome ! Great dinner. The waiter did take his time getting over to us but the food made it worth it! We diner outside and had a couple bums come up to us ! I would hope for the money you spend eating there that wouldn't happen !"

  • "The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. We have dined at both Beachwood and Cleveland, this time was in CLE... Great service and wonderful descriptions of the food! When it came down to time for our dessert our waiter was able to spot on explain the food and such great descriptive words he gave for being asked on the spot, that it made us want to try it even more!! so friendly. He was wonderful! Never have had a better steak!"

  • "We wanted to try this location as we have been to the one in Beachwood. Location, venue were very good. Steaks were excellent - cooked to perfection. Sides were excellent as well - Recommend creamed corn. Tater tots were very good - the sauce it came with did not work though. Server was very good. Didn't rush, but didn't keep us lingering as well. If you want the best steak in Cleveland, this is what I would recommend. One suggestion - appetizer selection needs to be a little more diverse. While I like tartare/sushi, people in my family do not like it so that knocked out half of the appetizers. Add a few more "cooked" items."

  • "Where to start? The valet was extremely expensive! Go to a garage or a lot 1/2 block down and pay only $10, as opposed to $20 (including tip). Our server (Adam) was very poor! Although, another server (Lucas) was excellent --- ask to sit at his table, if you go. We thought everything about this restaurant was lacking. There was nothing 'wow' on the menu, the steaks did not blow us away, & the wine list is very expensive. I loved the creamed corn (excellent flavor & nice crunch), but, as my husband said, we came for the steaks, not the veggies! If you want a fantastic steak, an excellent wine list, superior service, & more more bang for your buck, go to Morton's! We will not be going back to Red."

  • "Although I dont particularly care for steak, I made a reservation for Father's Day as my boyfriend really loves steak. Upon arrival, we were seated promptly and the ambiance was outstanding. Marc was our waiter and he did an outstanding job of waiting on us. He was attentive, friendly, and was very knowledgeable about the different cuts of steak and the menu. He also threw in a dessert for us (on the house) since it was our first time there-very nice touch!! In closing, the steak was the best we ever had!! It was bursting with flavor, tender, and juicy!! My boyfriend could not stop talking about it. I will definitely visit here more often. The restaurant was nice for a couple's outing and/or a group outing. SO GLAD I WENT....thx again Marc!"

  • "Wonderful evening at Red to celebrate our Dad's 70th birthday! We were taken care of expertly. Excellent wine suggestion. Husband loved the fresh oysters. Steaks were all melt-in-your-mouth delicious! Sides were fabulous as well. Birthday desserts they brought out were such a nice touch... The banana custard was amazing! We loved everything! Very pricey dinner, but for a special occasion, nothing is better!! Will definitely be back!"

  • "Ate here with a friend for an evening dinner. Had to say that I had the best steak in Cleveland, hands down. Was cooked to order perfectly along with generous portions of side dishes. Server was very friendly and knowledgeable of what was on the menu and how it was prepared. I will be returning again soon!"

  • "My boyfriend and I tried Red for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. The food was fantastic, I ordered the prime ribeye and he had a filet. Both were flavorful and tender. Our server was attentive and informative. And the hostess was very helpful, I reserved a specific table and she was sure to have the table we requested. We will be returning!"

  • "Great steak. Was struck by how simply the steak was served. $50 steak on a white plate, that's it. Server missed our vegtable order but it worked out better in the end. I would return in a heartbeat if I was looking for a steak."

  • "Ordered the fillet mignon, tuna tartar, rack of lamb, and lobster rossetto. The tartar and rossetto were divine! The service was impeccable. My (minor) complaints are: The crowd - Although Yelp listed this location as 'dressy', a number of people were dining in Cleveland Indian's garb. I'm not a snob, but when I'm paying the prices they are charging for a meal, I'm expecting the total package experience. The crowd was somewhat less than 'hip' and more 'elderly'. The music - Personally, I'd prefer something more contemporary along the lines of modern jazz or house music. The food - The meat was ordered to be medium and medium rare. It came out medium rare and extremely rare. I can understand erring on the rare side, but... "

  • "During this visit, I met a gentleman who was visiting from outof town. He asked the concierge at the hotel where he was staying where he should go for the best steak in town. He was directed to Red and absolutely impressed with the food, wine, and experience. It was his second visit in as many nights. I always enjoy my experience and this visit was no different. Red Downtown is a special experience, so if that is what you seek, make your reservation and I hope to see you there soon!"

  • "Steaks were good, not exceptional. Risotto and Crab Cakes were exceptional. Drinks were outrageously expensive and the place was so loud that I could barely hear the wait staff and/or my dinner mate. Probably will not return for second visit."

  • "Lola and Chinato are closed on Sundays on W4th, so we thought we would give Red a try. Salmon and salads were excellent. Our friends had the Paella and said it was great but came out cold/had to return to the kitchen but came back just at the right temperature. Portions are very generous. Not ordering dessert, the manager served us four home-made delish pretzel, chocolate chip caramel cookies- well worth the calories... It's was great to be able to dine in downtown Cleveland on a Sunday night so close to the show at the Q- thanks Red!"

  • "We have been to Red in Beachwood many times and this was our first visit to Red Downtown. Downtown is better with the exception of the $15.00 valet fee. The food, the ambiance and the service were superior. The seating is not jammed together like Beachwood so there is a more comfortable feel. All of our steaks were cooked to perfection and our server Lucas was superb. Can't wait to go back."
