Diner Reviews
  • "Lunch here is delicious, quick and comfortable. In the heart of the financial district, perfect for networking lunches or a catch up. Loving the lamb sirloin salad."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Disappointed that the upstairs fine dining restaurant has gone. Food was good however not the quality of the previous restaurant. This is more of a downtown bar singles type restaurant. It is fun for late night dining however not really the place for fine dining anymore."

  • "Way too loud & just bad music. Food & service were great."

  • "- you can't go wrong. Great wine list, incredible daily curry special, an adult designed grilled cheese, and the list goes on. Friendly attentive service and not intrusive. - it's fast turned into our favorite oasis in the financial district!"

  • "I booked Reds for a business lunch the food was terrible and expensive. The music loud and when I asked the waitress to turn it down she ignored us. The food were mains in the $27 range and they were terrible. We asked for no potatoes and were both served potatoes and when the food was brought back without them it was cold. I would never go back there again"

  • "OFFERING 1 FREE DESSERT FOR 3 BAD DINNER MEALS IS NOT THE INCENTIVE TO RETURN TO YOUR RESTAURANT. I INVITED 2 OF MY FRIENDS OUT TO DINNER . TWO OF US ORDERD A MIX DRINK WHICH WAS ONLY ICE & VERY WATERY. FOR APPETIZER, WE ORDERED FRIED CALAMARI; COLD, CHEWY, RUBBERY. WE ALL ORDER THE LAMB SHANK $ WE WERE VERY DISAPPOINTED (2 OF US DIDN'T EAT IT & THE OTHER ATE IT ONLY BECAUSE HE HAD NO LUNCH & WAS VERY HUNGRY) THE LAMB WAS TASTELESS, CHEWY SITTING ON TOP OF WHAT LOOKED LIKE BABY FOOD, AGAIN TASTELESS. AT THE COST OF $55+ PER PERSON, WE HAD A TERRIBLE SOMEWHAT MEAL, MOSTLY UNEATEN. A CHOICE OF 1 FREE DESSERT WAS NO INCENTIVE TO RETURN. WE SHOULD HAVE HAD AT MINUMUM 1 FREE MEAL. UNSATISFIED & WOULD NOT RECOMMEND YOUR RESTAURANT:("

  • "We chose Reds for a group lunch because of the location and wine selection. Even though we were a group of 6, it felt like we were in our own private room. Great ambiance on two levels. The food was excellent!"

  • "Was able to get reservations on short notice for 5. Very attentive staff, knowledgeable and helpful. Lobster and Guac app is great. Daily curry specials and ours was great. Highly recommend. "
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "not the Reds we all loved. Quite noisy and the menu is very limited. Not for a serious business meeting for sure. It seems they are going for a more mid-market lunch and after dinner drinks crowd you should add a "too noisy" bar above also to submit this review I had to pick from a number of inappropriate choices in 2 above - you need to have "other" for those that would not recommend the restaurant or have doubts about it"
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "For such a fancy restaurant I expected better service and better food. Service was very slow however likely due to a very full lunch room on Friday before a long weekend. Everyone else ordered swordfish which was about a 7 out of 10. The curry tasted 7 out of 10 (far too mild for curry) and the repeat and indigestion afterwards was 50 out of 10! There are about 100 better placed to go, specially for this price...will not be returning! "

  • "no matter you are a vegetarian or others, the menu offers a variety of choices and can be quite flexible."

  • "Way too loud if you want to hear what your dining partner has to say."
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Reds maintains consistently quality food. Always enjoy their salads with a special touch. Portions for main course however can be larger."

  • "Loved it ! Will return to indulge in more menu items next time! "

  • "Hi, I tried the special that night which was a fish and it was not very good. I barely ate the meal and the kale salad was a much better choice. My server offered to take the meal off the bill but I said do not worry about it. He was serving a large party so I know he was quite busy with things. I thought a manager or someone would come by to ask about the meal, but I left without anyone coming by, which was a disappointment. The fish was tasteless and fishy smelling and the veggies were very hard, even to cut with the knife. I am just give my honest feedback. The other items, like the oysters and calamari and wine was good, but the main dish was a disappointment. "
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "This was my second visit to Reds since the remodel and both times I found the environment too loud to be able to carry on a business lunch/dinner conversation. They have a very lively bar scene, and a nice selection of apps, which makes this a place more suited to meeting firends for a drink after work, but would probably not take clients there again and expect to be able to hear the person seated more than 3 feet away. Liked the wine selections, but the dinner menu was limited and offerrings a bit too "pubby" for a more formal event."

  • "Reds is a favorite of mine and they also deliver on all aspects"
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "We went on a Thursday night and the place was jumping, I got the impression that it's very trendy and buzzy right now. The kale salad was yummy as was the filet mignon. I recommend it, but know that it is loud and energetic. The wine list is very good and the food is very good as well."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Lively and good restaurant but with the noise levels it's not the greatest place for a business meeting."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Did a business lunch. A little too bustling for my liking but the food and service was good."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Ambiance wonderful cozy but a group was beside us so was very loud. Our server was very nice but slow to come to table ...we share 2 wonderful appetizers but didn't t really have time to breath before the dinner plate came...we both didn't t like the curry was too strong and the fish was smelly . But we will return as the tuna and lobster avocado was so yummy and wine superbe!!!"

  • "We have been to Reds several times before and always had an excellent time, but this time they outdid themselves. From the time we came in the door, to throughout the evening, they made us al feel special. EVERYONE was warm, welcoming, attentive and we could not have picked a better place to take our daughter to celebrate her 16th birthday. Whenever we are in Toronto, we make it a point to have dinner at Reds. There are many excellent places to eat, drink, and be merry - but this is by far our favorite. Never disappoints, always exceeds expectations. Thank you to Reds for making it another memorable evening!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The waiter brought the bill without us asking for it and they he kept coming by and looking for us to pay. We felt a bit rushed. We were celebrating a bday so was in no rush to leave. He came by with the machine so we decided to pay. I then asked if we had to leave and he said no but then he took off without taking the payment. He never came back until we called him."

  • "We had a great experience at REDS. My husband and I hoped for a casual birthday dinner out - and we were impressed with both the service and the wine list. A delicious meal and prompt and professional service - good sized portions and a great evening out. We would definitely return to REDS."

  • "What a great venue for a business lunch. Waitresses and waiters were very friendly, helped recommend certain foods and wine. Servers were great and food was amazing - the pork special was recommended to us and we all went with it and had no regrets whatsoever. We were sat up on the mezzanine and enjoyed the atmosphere and décor. Recommend!"

  • "Reds was packed at lunchtime and service was extremely slow. We were seated at noon and only got to order at 12:30, and that was after flagging down our server!! Food is great but not good when you have a 1:00 meeting and have to wolf it down."

  • "Reds is fine for what it is - an ok restaurant in a convenient location. I wouldn't recommend making it a destination but fine if you are in the area. They did a reno two or three years ago and it is more casual but not as good. The service is generally inexperienced and the servers have a poor knowledge of the wine list - even the wines by the glass."
