    The experience was fabulous. Our reservation from open table was there and our table was ready when it was supposed to be. The food was splendid and the timing was impeccable. Our server Matt was kind and knowledgeable. Red Water Grill never missed a beat making sure we had food on our table all the way from the time we sat down to the time we left. I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant; the menu, the staff, the ambiance, everything is top-notch. My steak was perfectly cooked and was smothered in a beautiful, from scratch, brandy and veal stock peppercorn demi glaze. I am very particular about the level of doneness of my steaks and the chef nailed it. Pricing is reasonable considering the level of food and ambiance.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 9/12/2014
    As usual, food and wine were amazing at Redwater. For the first time, I have to complain about the service. Our server was great and very knowledgeable with food pairings. The restaurant itself did not seem abnormally busy, our server was busy and did apologize for it. There was a lot of dead time while we waited for a wine menu, food, drink/ refills, desserts, and even the bill. We ended up being there for over 3 hours. Normally, I would not complain about it but we were there with our 9 and 5 year old daughters. Also found a miscommunication? in the kitchen. We received double order of gluten free buns, as well as a second round of entrees and desserts made their way to our table even after we had eaten.

    We've been many times and every time I want to order one of everything on the menu. I can always feel good about what I've eaten here. We took a couple who has never been before and they were impressed. From the appetizer down to the amazing roasted marshmallow martini for dessert, the food was delicious as always. Peggy is our favourite server and creates such a pleasant experience in every way.

    Kids meals were delivered 10 min after ordering (great), we then waited more than an hour after that for first signs of adults meals. Seafood pasta was not as described and had to go back (full of grey looking salmon). Had to wait another 15min for replacement. Steak was delivered bare on the plate (literally steak on a plate) 10 min later, steak is gone and still waiting for side. We all enjoyed my partially cooked asparagus for dessert. Two hours of frustration rather than relaxation and enjoyment. No offer to make it right other than "sorry" from server. No visit from manager.

    My husband and I came to Redwater to celebrate our anniversary. We haven't been to this restaurant in years. The service and food was excellent. It was fairly priced. There were a few families eating dinner and we didn't know that kids were welcome. It was nice to see that. Overall, we would likely return on special occasions.

  • Dinner Dollar Value
    SusieB
    Dined on 8/23/2014
    For the most part dinner and wine were fine, service was good, however, the prawns and scallops were certainly lacking in size and presentation for the hefty price it came with. (3 small prawns and 4 scallops the size of a quarter seemingly dumped on a bed of about 20 pieces of asparagus-so I didn't gain any weight). The other meals were pasta. For 2 pasta meals, 2 seafood meals, one appetizer, 1 dessert and 2 bottles of wine @ $40 (pretty good wine actually). Bill was $220.00 plus tip. I consider that to be a fair value for wine and dinner (but do not order the seafood dinner if you are hungry). We will go back on occasion as we always do. Still enjoy the atmosphere.

    Once again the Redwater was wonderful. The food was tasty and with the outstanding service can't be beat. It's relaxing to have a night out with great friends visiting and not feel like you have to leave so they can seat someone else.

    My boyfriend and I were looking for a classy place to have a couple steaks and a bottle of wine. The food was great, steaks well cooked. Service was alright, he seemed new at his job and didn't refill our wine glasses for us. The only real complaint was the table we were sat at, cramped and in the middle of a walk way so we were constantly being distracted and jostled by the servers. I'd recommend it but request a table in a more secluded spot.

    Dined on 8/12/2014
    I understand fine dining however, for a $40 steak dinner the portions are a bit small. One could easily fit the dinner on a bread plate & not the large dinner plate it is served upon. Although tasty in it's own right it would be nice to see a little more in the way of vegetables & other. It did seem odd to be at a fine dining establishment & see a baseball game on the tv screen in the restaurant. I think some nice piano music or other soothing music in the background would be perhaps better suited rather than a ball game. The ball game could be watched at Original Joe's if you need one that bad. Still will go back if to simply enjoy the great service provided by Kara (SP).

    Having been here numerous times it is one of our favorites. The food is always very good and is not stagnate. The shrimp appetizer is the very best and a staple for the restaurant. Service is very attentive without being overboard. I would highly recommend for lunches with clients as well as an evening meal with someone special. The wine list is extensive and the glassed wine room is the center of attention in the main dining room that is surrounded by booths. There is an outdoor patio that is glassed in from the elements for those that like outdoor dining. It has patio heaters for the cooler nights.

    We were first seated near the kitchen which was so noisy had to request to be moved. Steak came medium rare when ordered medium well. Waited 10 minutes for steak to be re-cooked and then came over done though it was a very good steak. Sourdough bread was amazing. Prawn scallop dish was Ok though scallops could have been grilled more, they were not hot by the time the got to the table. Overall the meal was OK but expected more for the price.

    We were very disappointed. The waiter and service was very poor. He was mainly interested in us ordering a lot of drinks. When having a drink, we had to ask for bread many times before he reluctantly brought some to the table. The pork was terribly salty. No one in our group of four enjoyed their dinner. Cocktails were overpriced. We will not be going back.

    This was my first evening dining experience at Redwater south. I have always had good experience with lunch at this place, but I was really blown away by the evening experience. I was really impressed by how much effort was put into offering real gluten-free options (some restaurants claim to offer gluten-free options and then show you a menu of 'gluten-free' items which are almost always gluten-free anyway like ribs). The server was very knowledgeable and helpful with the food and wine menus and the service was excellent.
