Diner Reviews
  • "I ordered the salmon. It was overcooked, under-seasoned and dry."
    Dined on 8/26/2014
  • "After taking a month to find a date to meet up with a friend and looking forward to a lunch at Red's I found it disappointing. Greeted and seated quickly but as all the tables on the 1st floor at least are on stools it becomes very difficult to get in or out of your table. I had help to sit closer to table but then couldn't move or get out again. Level of noise was very high and speaking was done by shouting. I had the Arctic Char which was on a lunch special. It was adequate but nothing more. The skin was not crisped and the bed of tomatoes must have come from somewhere else as they certainly were not the ones I had been getting at our markets. My friend had a sandwich which she enjoyed."

  • "I've been to this restaurant a few times for lunch, once in the Private Dining Room and the rest on the 2nd floor. Service has always been very slow - you can count on spending a couple of hours here. I made a reservation for 2 and they put us in the middle of the 1st floor in the table that seats 12!! We had to wait another 10 mins to get their attention that's not where we would like to be. We then eventually were put upstairs, where nobody came to take our order or ask what we'd like to drink for a long time. It was 30 mins later until we could place our order. No one came and asked how our food was either. Each time it gets more disappointing. I would definitely NOT recommend this restaurant to anyone."

  • "Reds is my go to place when I have people in from out of town or for somewhere to go after work that is close and I know has the food and drinks that I like. Its always excellent, the staff are all friendly and professional."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "I've been to the restaurant a handful of times and it was always good. This time the food was thoroughly disappointing. I had the clam chowder. It was thin and had been sitting under a heat lamp for a while before it came to me from the skin that had formed on top. We also shared the Thai-like lettuce wraps. The sauce tasted right out of a jar and the lettuce was brown around the edges. For the prices they charge, I won't go back."

  • "Excellent food and plate display, great ambiance, definately coming back for more!"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Although service was good, I found the food to be neither good or bad - simply unmemorable. I remember the food being better than this."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Staff was very attentive. Perfect spot for a late lunch. Energetic atmosphere but it was still easy to talk."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Dinner. Week night. Very loud music, but not impossible. Service was inattentive and provided by many different people. Very wide variety of drinks; including beer, wine and gin. Menu suffered from a lack of vegetarian options. One or two apps, shares and entrees would make a big difference. Kale salad was very well conceived. Rigatoni carbonara, made vegetarian, was tasty. Date-based dessert was just right."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Way too loud & just bad music. Food & service were great."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "- 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'm regular and always looking forward to coming back with friends for a casual dinner or business lunch. Never disappoints!!"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "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!"

  • "Have been there a number of times-menu needs refreshing-not a cheap place for lunch"
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Creative food, extensive wine list, and warm and friendly service. Great ambience..."

  • "My Riesling was out of stock and the Tuna Nicoise had too much vinegar. Would have expected a better food experience for the price."

  • "Great outdoor patio combined with great food and atmosphere. Enjoyed a fantastic lunch, we will go back for sure and recommend this Reds Wine Tavern for a great experience. "

  • "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! "
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "no matter you are a vegetarian or others, the menu offers a variety of choices and can be quite flexible."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Loved it ! Will return to indulge in more menu items next time! "
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."
