Early evenings more quiet
Early evenings more quiet and very zen-like lounge atmosphere. Specialty cocktails sounded better than they tasted, food (tapas-style) was truer to the menu. Staff was quick, efficient, friendly but not obtrusive.

The menu was very interesting and everything that came to our table tastes fantastic; especially the pumpkin dumplings and the lamb. Our server Erin made our engagement the special occasion we wanted it to be. The only odd thing was the banquette seats against the wall. They were very uncomfortable and awkward. It sounds like a strange thing to complain about but it took away from the otherwise excellent meal!

I really enjoyed my visit
I really enjoyed my visit to Red Maple on Friday night with my girlfriends. The atmosphere was very relaxing and nicely decorated. Cozy couches, fireplace and friendly customer service. They also was doing free makeovers and photo shoots...how great is that ! ;-) The Dj was playing a great mixture of music. Overall very nice upscale place. Oh..did I mention the drinks were awesome ! Lol

unique and insanely delicious
unique and insanely delicious food with small plates fit for sharing. The low tables with sofa seating and overall ambiance was perfect for catching up with friends in a distinguished and sophisticated setting. This was the first time going to Red Maple and it certainly will not be the last - one of the best dining experiences I have ever had!

Nice vibe but rickety benches
Red Maple is still a hot spot in the city. It will remind you of being in some trendy locale in Miami, Los Angeles or London. The vibe and music were right, but the benches that we sat on were a little uncomfortable. The backs were loose, so you couldn't lean back confidently. I would return for sure, as that was the only downside to a beautiful evening. The small plates are nicely priced and tasty!

I loved the tapas menu! There was a variety of options and everything we tried tasted great! The seating was very comfortable and some of the tables even had fireplaces next to them. Overall great experience.

Get there early
For an amazing, quiet dinner, get there early. The husband and I got there when it opened and ended up having amazing tapas. The gnocchi with brussel sprouts in sage butter was so good we ordered two, the pumpkin dumplings in cardamom cream made me want to lick the plate, and the lemon creme brulee was creamy and tart with the right amount of sweetness. I've heard it gets crowded and crazy in the evenings, but on a Thursday at 7pm it was all ours.

Not bad for a Night Club
After attending a concert in Baltimore, this was one of only a few late night options available for dinner. After reading a number of reviews, both good and bad, decided to take a chance. Also, we like tapas. Ordered five items and were very pleased with all but one (lobster mac and cheese, cheese over powered the lobster). Lamb burgers and duck wraps were great. Service was attentive and efficient. Seating not uncomfortable if you don't lean over and try to eat from what are more like coffee tables vs. dinner tables. Pick up the plate and eat as you would at a stand up party. Late night its a dance club and quite interesting for 60 somethings like us. Can't think of any reason to not recommend Red Maple.

Went there for my girlfriend's 30th birthday. We had a great time, delicious food and very good service. I would highly recommend it for group events and celebrations.

We had a great meal. The place was empty because it was early on a thursday, but the food was great. Try the shrimp dumplings!

Great place for a group, special
Great place for a group, special occasion, sophisticated night out. Food was fabulous. Music selection was great. Not too loud until about 10pm when the DJ comes on and then it gets loud - fun if you are in the dance mood but not if you want to hold a conversation.

Did not disappoint
I had been to Red Maple once before, and I remembered that the food was excellent. When we ordered, I wasn't sure how I would feel about some of the choices, but wow -- the food is just phenomenal.
We had a reservation for 6:00 p.m. on a Wednesday -- absolutely unnecessary as we were exactly the only customers there. Our waiter was perfectly timely -- attentive, but not overly so.
I love the setting too -- low sofas and chairs with low tables -- very intimate, perfect for couples or groups.
Can't wait to go back!

Pre-show dinner Saturday night, what a great unexpected find. Delicious food, great service and an all around good vibe. The dishes are perfect for sharing.

We had a great meal. It was around 7 or so on a weekday night, and the restaurant was almost empty. Besides my husband and I, there were 2 or three other tables. As we left, at 8:30, we could see the club crowd for later in the evening starting to gather. Food was excellent, especially the corn fritters and a luscious buttermilk panna cotta. This place has a chic, modern decor. The lighting is low, and got lower as the evening went on, so much so that we could only see our menus if we held them up to the table lamps. The tables are very, very low and that can make for some messy eating moments. I liked it, but I did wish the lighting was just a little brighter!! Pretty pink table lamps were very striking against the dark woods of the decor.

Nice Group outing
Had the Tapas for our group of 6...chef selected food varieties, very nice. Some things we tried were just okay, and other things were awesome. Overall great job and our server did complimentary lemon cake shots for my birthday. Fantastic!!!

Great food, loud music
Great, delicious tapas, trendy ambiance with lounge seating. Only downside was that the music was pretty loud.

Pretty cool – Good food
I found out about this place through Living Social. It worked well with our plans for dinner before a play in midtown. The seating is around low tables – small ones in a long row, so a little atypical in layout but in a good way. The cheese app was especially good, as were all of our dishes. The music was…different, from smooth jazz to world sounds, and a bit loud. The only issue was when we decided to order one last plate to share it took a long while to get it. The staff was very nice and prices reasonable.
