    The three of us thoroughly enjoyed our server who was very gracious and attentive. She served the food and beers promptly. The food (especially the turkey burger and cornbread) was delicious. The meatloaf was just so so and the portabello burger presentation was outstanding but mediocre tasting. The atmosphere outside was so great that we didn't want to leave. We will definitely go back

    Dinner for 10 was a great event. The only problem was the size of the portions. I only ordered an appetizer and couldn't eat but half! Of course, for others, that's a good thing.

    We went to Redstone for a birthday lunch and the experience was excellent. The ambiance is upscale and comfortable. I love the smell of the wood stove that permeates the restaurant. The water views are spectacular, the food is excellent and the service is excellent as well. The restaurant is fairly expensive so this is a great place to go for special occasions and group events. I highly recommend it.

    Certain tables inside of the restaurant has bad lighting. The music is kind of loud so it may be hard to hear people across from you at the table. Everyone in the restaurant has to talk loud to hear each other so it gets loud in the restaurant.

    Neither of us had ever been there and were most pleasantly surprised with the food, service and atmosphere. The only criticism, and I don't know if it was on Open Table's site or the restaurant's site I was looking at while searching for a restaurant in National Harbor after seeing Cirque du Soleil Amaluna. Some place it said "Private Lot" for parking info. Not so at National Harbor location. Perhaps, that is provided at another location. So, we spent some time trying to get to this non-existent private lot.

    The service was great and the view was amazing, but the salad I ordered was disappointing. I ordered the rotisserie chicken chopped salad and the greens were not mixed (mostly iceberg lettuce) and the chicken didn't have any flavor.

    Their "crispy calamari" should be called "soggy calami". Service was lagged and inattentive, we even had to ask for silverware, and table napkins were absent after the appetizers were served. The baby back ribs were good, but my wife's shrimp scampi was in a puddle of oil or butter. No repeat visits here.

    It took 20 minutes for the waitress to make her first visit to our table after we were seated and then another 20+ minutes until our drinks arrived. When they arrived, both drinks were wrong, and the waitress had no clue as to why it was a problem that the martinis came unchilled in small juice glasses. After we flagged down a manager, she did rectify the situation by having the correct drinks delivered and covering the cost of them. The basic problem is that we expected to receive the same quality service we've experienced at other Redstone locations but instead struggled through very poor service until the manager intervened.

    My wife, neighbor, and I went for the first time and it was awesome! Our server, Jayde was adorably awesome and she took amazing care of us! We started with the cornbread, which was perfectly moist and flavorful with a hint of jalapeño! My wife got the wedge salad and margherita pizza which both were great! Her suggestion about me getting the 16 oz ribeye and loaded baked potato was spot on and delicious! Our friend got the watermelon salad and salmon entree! Both really tasty! If you're looking for a great hip spot with a wonderful view, yummy food, great service, and ok with 20-40$ or so per person then Red Stone is a place for you! Thanks open table and Red Stone! I recommend this place for sure!

    Redstone American Grill has a lovely décor and scenic view of Potomac River (located in popular new National Harbour complex). BUT, food service was VERY, VERY slow! Waitress apologized for not being able to bring drinks due to no clean glasses (I suggested she could substitute with paper to-go cups if available). We asked for some mayo and sugar (we were hoping to improve the not-tasty-at-all coleslaw) but she NEVER brought us those simple items. The turkey burger had WAY, WAY TOO MUCH GARLIC CHUNKS in it!! So I stopped eating it. And two days later still wrestling with garlic odor that I did not wish to encounter. However, the cheese/chicken fondue was a big hit with my daughter. And the buffalo shrimp appetizer was good.

    The food and setting were great. We enjoyed everything we ordered. Delivery times from the bar to our table, for the server to respond to requests, and time for food to come our all seemed long. Based upon diners near us we believe it may have been the server. Chicken and fish plates ordered were nice. Cornbread was a wonderful treat. Don't order a margarita.

    This is a great resturant if you are looking for a spot to entertain guests or just have dinner. We decided to eat light, where I had a great salad and my husband had ribs. The ribs were falling off the bone but were dry, however the sauce was great. We arrived around 9pm, and had a water view which is always great. The folks at the bar both inside and out seemed to be having a great time. This is an American girll with higher than normal prices. I checked out the prices for their resturants in other markets and the prices at National Harbor were in fact higher. Uhm.

    Having a reservation made it so easy, we were seated almost immediately. Food was so good, my husband had the hamburger and said it was the best he'd had. I had the Parmesan crusted walleye which was absolutely Delicious. Moist and perfectly cooked. The dirty martini was the best. Our friends had the flatbreads and said they were very good. A delightful experience overall.

    We have eaten at numerous restaurants at National Harbor since it opened and found Grace's mandarin the only gem. The others all had mediocre food and even worse service. We had a surprisingly lovely meal at lunch at a waterfront table where the service was friendly and consistent and the food was tasty. We will definitely make this our first choice at the harbor going forward.

    I made reservations for Friday for my husband and I. We arrived about 15 minutes late due to crazy traffic at the harbor but were seated immediately. Although we were sat right next to the (no view of the harbor), our waiter Kevin was great. I ordered the pesto crusted halibut and my hubby ordered the ribs. My dish was delicious. My husbands was just ok. The cornbread was good and my strawberry doli (recommended by waiter) was just the perfect fruity drink for my taste. We will definitely be back in hopes to have a better view next time.

    The best thing about this restaurant is the scenic view. When we arrived their was no one at the hostess stand. After a few minutes we were escorted to our table. It took a little long for our server to come by but she was very friendly and helpful. We had to ask for silverware, there was none on the table (or any of the tables around us). Cold drinks were place on the table without napkins so the table was a wet mess after a while. We had the cornbread and buffalo shrimp for starters; both tasted great but would have been better if warm. We both ordered burgers. My burger was basically a bacon cheeseburger with bbq sauce - not very flavorful and the bacon was too hard to bite ; the General Tsao's Turkey Burger wasn't memorable either.

I can't believe I ate the whole thing. I added a side of cornbread which was a great ending as it tasted more like cake than cornbread.

    I enjoyed the restaurant but I did not understand why they charged for everything. $1 for refills. We went for my daughter's 8th birthday and they didn't even sing or give a dessert. You had to buy a dessert. Definitely not a good kid friendly restaurant. I probably will not be going back.

    Redstone does some things really great & some things really terrible. I understand some of it is luck of the draw but we can only review what we experienced. Took my wife here for our anniversary dinner on a friday night. MAKE RESERVATIONS, otherwise be prepared to wait 1+hrs. Waiter & manager were awesome. Some food was outstanding: highly recommend the ribs, cornbread, and crabcakes. The burger and fries are also terrific. But skip the steak. I sent mine back 3 times and they never got it cooked right: first well done, then ultra rare, finally medium rare when I asked for medium. To boot, I wasn't a fan of the seasoning or flavor. So skip the steak, make reservations, and Redstone should make for a good albeit noisy evening.

    The prices at Redstone are comparable to restaurants that I frequent such as Pearl Dive, Mintwood, and Kapnos. The food is on par with an Applebees. I'm so sorry to write this but I have to get the point across that you must raise the bar. The only dish worth saving at Redstone is the rotisserie chicken, and you don't pay $9 for parking and over $100 on a bill just for chicken. The flatbreads are bland, braised ribs tasted boiled, calamari was ok but served with a nasty sauce, halibut was overcooked, and the key lime pie had a gritty texture like it was made from a box mix. I know that you are packing the people in, but for me, you have to raise the bar.

    The online menu and website sell the place as an upscale steakhouse with $40 steaks which are supposedly aged 28 days. We ordered the prime rib with mashed potatoes. As soon as the order went into the kitchen, it came out in less than 5 minutes, which gave us no time to enjoy our wine and clearly showed that the meat and mashed potatoes were already cooked just sitting and drying. They were dry and unpleasant. The meat was absolutely average -NOT AGED- and undercooked. The fat was not trimmed and the seasoning was minimal. This place is more of a sports pub of sorts with a huge bar and televisions as soon as you walk in. Maybe they might be good for burgers and fries. But it is NOT a nice steakhouse.

    My boyfriend and I picked Redstone after looking at a couple different menus online. We both had never been and it was outstanding. Our waiter was absolutely amazing, our drinks were different but fantastic, and every item we ordered was perfect. (Chicken Alfredo, pesto halibut, jerk chicken fondue, flatbread, and dessert) We ordered a bunch of food with the intent to just have a taste of each and bring the rest home, but it was so good we ate everything!
