This was an excellent experience.
This was an excellent experience. The food was fantastic. It was pricey, but worth it. Staff was very friendly and made us feel welcome. A lovely evening out.

Always a great meal
My wife and I spend every weekend from May through September in Ventnor and dine at the Red Room at least every other weekend. The food is consistently good and the service the same. They just changed up the menu and the new additions that we tried were great, try the sauteed/grilled calamari.
If you are in Ventnor and looking for a great dining spot, you will not go wrong with the Red Room.

Just as good in the busy season
Just as good in the busy season as it was in the quieter winter months.

The Milano salad and Chicken Parm are terrific. The stuffed shrimp is good, but expected larger shrimp and less crab stuffing. The menu has many options in addition to specials. The salads come in two sizes, which is nice for the person who prefers a smaller portion. Seating is tight and the room tends to get warm thanks to the open kitchen. There is no place to wait for a table inside if the weather is unsettled.

Really enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent. A little small for a large party.

The food exceeded our expectatons. The staff was very friendly and helpful suggesting and describing the dishes. Will definitely return. Street parking can be an issue.

Service needs a bit of improvement
The food at the Red Room was wonderful and a very good value My only critique was that the service/pacing of the meal was spotty at best. I do not know if this was a kitchen issue or that the wait staff seemed to be new and breaking in. For example, not withstanding that we were drinking white wine, no ice bucket was offered. We had to ask for olive oil for our bread several times before the server/bus person got around to it.

One of the best restaurants
One of the best restaurants at the shore. We've been here often. Great food.....if you truly want Italian food this is the place to go! Cozy atmosphere. As soon as you walk in the door Maria greets you with a smile. And that continues with the staff throughout the evening. They are always accomodating and pleasant. Tina is the best.....this is a must go place when you are at the south jersey shore!!! This is truly a family owned & operated restaurant & it shows!

Italian food +
Have enjoyed eating at Red Room every time. Food is always fresh and prepared the way you want it. Specials add meat and seafood dishes for a complete dining experience. Each dish was appealing to the eye and the pallet.. Prices are commensurate with the qty and quality of the dishes. One of my favorites.

Nice neighborhood restaurant
Not totally upscale, not totally downscale but a bit over midscale. Very good food, very friendly and attentive staff. Great place for a relaxing, casual Shore dining experience.

Weird Name For a Great Italian
We found this place on Open Table. Our reservation was for 8:15 and we got seating exactly on time. It seemed they knew to take care of Open Table customers. The server was the owner's daughter and was fabulous. Friendly, knowledgeable without being overbearing. All appetizers and entrees were available in large or small sizes. The grilled calamari and ricotta gnocchi were outstanding. Others had halibut that was also excellent. They could use a few noise dampers, but other than that, we will be returning. Highly recommend.

Great little byob. Reasonably priced. Everything was delicious. The spicy white sauce for the mussels was the best!

Will be back again...
We ate here 4-5 years ago for the first time and were very impressed. We do not visit this area often but the Red Room is on our short list of places to eat when we are around here.

Thank goodness for Open Table.
Thank goodness for Open Table. I wouldn't have found this restaurant any other way. Great neighborhood restaurant. Authentic Italian dishes and great service. Highly recommend this restaurant.

The food was very good .
There is no parking lot or valet parking so parking on a week end is a challenge.

Went with my wife for our anniversary. The food was excellent and the staff was attentive. Definitely will recommend to friends and family.

Raves for Red Room
We have been here many times and have come to expect great food and service . Once again, we were not disappointed. We brought guests who also enjoyed the food and cozy ambiance. Supporting local establishments is important to us and Red Room Cafe is a gem in Ventnor!

This was my first time here.
This was my first time here. I have been wanting to try it forever. I was pleased with the food and service. Everything was delicious and the service was on point.

This was a first try for our group of four..... One being a foodie. Happily we all enjoyed our meals! We were greeted with a smile and our waitstaff were pleasant and helpful. Our waiter even made suggestions that were helpful in our meal selections. We all commented how we did not feel rushed through our meal. The portions were generous and flavorful. I, for sure, will go back.

Seaside Italian BYO
Red Room Cafe is a gem of a restaurant located just over the bridge from the shore area of Ventnor. We had a group of 6 on a Friday night, were seated and greeted promptly, and had a very good meal. Service was leisurely--timed perfectly, not rushed, but I didn't feel that we were waiting forever for our meal--it was just right. The food was delicious, and the portions were generous. Prices were reasonable, too. We went early, so the crowd was older--it gets younger as the night goes on. Also, they were very good about accommodating special dietary requests.

mGreat Italian food. Perfect for a date night!!! Felt like my mom's kitchen on Sunday!

Nice dinner at Red Room
I enjoyed my dinner here after a rough start with only one waiter for the entire place. Great meatball appetizer. The homemade pasta was also good.

great fresh fish dishes
Great daily specials of fresh fish. Also good gnocchi.

High end Italian cuisine
The food preparation in this lovely room is extraordinary. In among the traditional Italian favorites are some high- end gems, like suppli, rarely found on Italian menus. We had dishes with two different tomato sauces, both very fresh and distinctly different, geared for the dishes themselves. A fish dish was presented beautifully, so good to look at that it was a shame to start eating it. It was cooked perfectly. The staff was very knowledgeable, friendly, and smiling, and the other diners seemed to share their friendliness. We had a wonderful time and will be back!

Very noisy. About 15 minutes
Very noisy. About 15 minutes late for reservation. Waitress ordered wrong appetizer so we were served at different times. Service needs improvement but menu and food is very good

I have dined at Red Room about 10 times and the food, and service has been consistently great. A wide menu selections means everyone at the table has plenty of choice in terms of food and portion size. Most pleasant is the moderate noise level...a rarity at the shore. There are so many appetizer and entree choices, that no matter how often I've been there, I always find something new to try. The only sameness is taste....all good! They are very accommodating and never fail to treat you like a good customer.

overall we had a good meal. the service was slow, and generally unattentive. the food was good. it is a good option in the neighborhood.

Understandably not as busy during off-season at the Jersey shore. This restaurant's food and service are always terrific (although we only eat seafood, so I can't speak to the quality of their meat and chicken offerings). Reasonably priced, esp since BYOB doesn't obligate overpaying for alcohol. The beet salad as a starter is not to be missed.
