As small business owners with
As small business owners with 5 people, we find it difficult to find a good place for business meetings, one that's centralized with plenty of parking and a separate room where we can conduct business. The upstairs room was perfect!

hadn't been in for a few years . . . food was as good as we remembered and our waitress was EXCELLENT, right down to offering to create separate checks for 4 at the end of the evening without us having to ask.

This is a little gem that is cozy but be prepared for noise. The food was great and the wine was a delight.

We always enjoy dinner at
We always enjoy dinner at the Red House. It was lovely to be seated in the downstairs room with windows. The food was good. There is such a variety of menu items to choose from and they are all wonderful. There is a wide range of wine selections and all of enjoyed the glasses we ordered. We'll be back!

Favorite close to home
It is nice to have such a unique little place right in our neighborhood. Food is always fresh, very good, and of course the wine. Tapas to entrees with many choices in between. I have been here several times, with family and friends. I also appreciate that they are sensitive to dietary needs.

Red House is always a pleasure
You never know which little nook or crannie you'll be sitting in, but all have great ambience. Service is always spot-on. The menu seems to be shrinking--food was good but the selection was not as good as I recall from previous visits. Outdoor dining is very popular in good weather but it's right on a busy street and not much in the way of views. Great wine list and craft beers.

Mother's Day Tapas
I took my mom here on mothers day because we were looking for some place in between Puyallup and Seattle and there were some good reviews. All four of us in our party were very pleasantly surprised, the ambiance was delightful and the tapas did not disappoint, by the of the meal we had each stolen something of one another's plates!
If you are a fungi fan(or not), order the mushroom bruscetta; the earthy, buttery, herb taste will make you dance in your seat. we'll be back!

We had our birthday dinner and everything was delicious. I had a bacon-wrapped top sirloin steak with gorgonzola cheese and mashed potatoes. I was not disappointed.

Enjoyed Nice Lunch
Three of us went for lunch to celebrate our birthdays. Everyone enjoyed their lunch choices. The seafood stew was delicious. Portions were large enough for us to share. Huge trout selected for the trout lunch special. Chicken penne picatta very flavorful. Would recommend lunch or dinner. Next time I'd like to try the mac n cheese!

red house was great
It is a red house! It was perfect for our boisterous group of 7 adults. The restaurant was homey and comfortable, and we even had our own room. Peaking around we noticed many charming places to sit throughout the house. The wine and beer selection had plenty to offer. The food was quite good and the service was outstanding. Two in our party have dietary restrictions, gluten free and dairy free. Our waiter, Chris, and the kitchen, were super accommodating. It was a pleasant surprise to find a place like this and we will definitely go back.
5/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I had a wonderful meal, not the usual menu, we wanted something different, (Duck and Moroccon chicken, marinated mushrooms). YUM! The service was excellent and the staff were all friendly. We will go again! Love the ambience. If the weather is nice we want to eat in their garden patio next.
5/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
We usually go to the Red House when it is possible to eat outside. This time we went on a rainy day and ate inside. We were pleasantly surprised to see how many private areas there were for dining. Next time we won't hesitate to go on an evening that is not fit for man or beast and sit inside.
The salads were great and the Copper River salmon was absolutely fantastic.
5/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
delightful for Renton
We take business lunches here and the food is top notch. Delightful and different for Renton. Worth trying for a lunch or dinner. You can find great comfort food or tasty healthy dishes.

Best kept food secret in Renton!
Red House is a great place to go for excellent food and helpful service! We went there to meet with old friends we hadn't seen for a while and had an absolutely marvelous time! The wait staff was extremely helpful in assisting one of the diners to find a suitable gluten-free dinner. The food was so good I'd go back there in a heartbeat!! To top it off, their wine list is amazing - one you'd expect in a big upscale restaurant. Loved it!
5/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Enjoyed by all!
This was our 2nd visit with new friends. The wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable. Each menu item had some componant setting a notch or two above "ordinary". With lots of little rooms, and 2 floors, the opportunity for a quiet corner or a room for your group is better than average. Foodies will enjoy!

Upbeat Monday night dining scene
Nice weather provided my first opportunity to enjoy dining at Red House outdoors. The service was very good for a surprisingly busy Monday night at this restaurant. Quality food and portions satisfied my out of town guests and me. I enjoyed the seared ahi salad, though the vegetarian lasagna and ravioli with shrimp entrees looked satisfying too. Wonderful to find a lively downtown Renton dining scene at Red House.
6/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had the delicious porugese stew with quinoa rather than pasta and my partner had the turkey and pear sandwich, both we absolutely scrumptious! The caesar salad is very good as well!
6/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Happy with the experience overall.
Red House is a long-time favorite and we weren't disappointed. The serving staff was excellent. I only down-rated the 'service' because the hostess led us to an inside table, and did not seem to be aware that the reservation requested at table outside on the deck.
We ordered two different glasses of the house blend wines and were pleased with the quality and quantity, considering they were among the least expensive on the menu.
6/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Never a disapointment
I have been to the Red House several times and have always had wonderful food. Their selection of wines and beer is one of the best.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had our company CEO and a large group for lunch and a great impression was made. Perfect service, quiet private room for a great discussion

I would definately recommend
I would definately recommend Red House. A unique menu. Everything our party had was delicious. We were surprised how much we all loved the beets on the Tapas menu. Mac & cheeze a favorite. Our waiter also gave us the option of bacon bits & jalepenos as optional add-on. Great choice of beers and wines. They encourage a leisurely multi-course dining experience.

Perfect hide-a-way restaurant!
What a perfect little place; staff were friendly and personable, the restaurant was tiny but quaint and clean. The food was excellent!!! Very romantic outdoor dining by moonlight. Definately will go there ago for late-night spring or summer dinners.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice evening. Wonderful ambiance!
The only thing keeping it from perfect was music - too loud. Needed to be Judy a few clicks lower. Love the garden on the street!

Great Place for Summer Dinner
Excellent front deck for al fresco dining. Nice wine list, knowledgeable servers, relaxed crowd. The menu has lots of options, and the specials are excellent, local and seasonal. Excellent value. Downtown Renton is extremely under-rated.

Great variety of wines and beers. Food selection keeps been renovated, always good and with very pleasant surprises.

All around perfect
I loved the authenticity of this restaurant and how they converted a house into a restaurant. Such a change from the polished, sofisticated restaurants I seem to frequent. While the service was slow to start (for which they gave us a free dessert), the wine list and food sure made it easy to live with. The food was very flavorful, with large enough portions to satisfy my 6.2ft husband. Really, the value for money was excellent and I would recommend this to anyone travelling in that direction.

Cafe Ala Chic
The rustic, European atmosphere and two wonderful outdoor patios may attract newcomers but the food will bring them back again and again. Daily 5 star specials and an eclectic standard menu provide first class fare for everyone. Wines from around the world line every room floor to ceiling and an entire room is set aside for the best imported beers available. 6 rotating taps feature local micro brews and more. A well educated staff can assist both the connoisseur and the layman find exactly the right beverage to pair the meal and the palate. Comfortable, casual,. friendly atmosphere will have you ordering that second bottle of wine and taking a little personal time to just relax and enjoy.

Best kept secret
I have to admit I have dinned at the Red House before and was excellent then as well. I had the lamb the other night and it was possibly the bed lamb I have ever had.

Memorable Anniversary Dinner
Wanted something special and local to celebrate our wedding anniversary (4th)

Food was very good and the wine list is extensive. We will go back.

Best place to dine in Renton, WA
Could not ask for better wine and beer options, you can even purchase anything to go. Fresh crab in home made mac and cheese, figs, olives, tapas and more!

Best Restaurant in Renton!
The food is great, always have fantastic specials. The service is wonderful, they hire the best staff! We have been going to this restaurant every week for 4 years and have never had a bad time. It's a cool atmosphere, in an old house and a great place for family celebrations.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food and service. LOVE the large round table in the semi-private room in back.... It's perfect for small groups. Excellent beer and wine selections!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great all around
This is a gem for sure, great beer and wine list. Outstanding food and fun friendly service!

For Foodies!! In Renton, who knew??
What a little gem is the Red House in Renton!! A real residence back in the 1930s, this big house is transformed into a funky, multi-floor restaurant with old-Seattle charm. The food is FAB U LOUS!! Try the roasted beets with gorgonzola in a balsamic shallot reduction for an appetizer, or the fantastic clams in garlic wine broth. The Seafood Stew is so out-of-this-world that we begged the waiter to tell us what it was made with, and he suavely said, "Love." Excellently-roasted lamb, a superb rigatoni puttanesca, and some amazing desserts rounded out our meal. We've dined here four times so far and have been consistently impressed with the creative, seasonal menu offering the best of the Pacific Northwest, prepared with Mediterranean flare.

A special place
Great food presentation, great taste at affordable prices, this gem of a restaurant deserves to be amongst my favorite places to frequent when looking for a quality meal. Must be enjoyed by all who know good food.

Very nice - I loved the wine and food. My date suggested and now I know why.

My mom and I made reservations to celebrate my late grandma's birthday. We do it every year. The table was ready and we got a window seat as requested. I always have a great time when I come here. The food and wait staff are outstanding!!

Our second visit in about
Our second visit in about a month. Excellent food, well prepared. The mac and cheese with crab is tops (more crab than you'd typically expect to find). One of our party order the pork chop and said it was the best she'd ever tasted. Salads are also noteworthy and innovative.

best neighborhood gem
Red House never disappoints. The food is always great, creative fresh menu daily, the specials are always inspired by season and of course the great NW area. The wine is what originally brought me in, but the service, warmth, wonderful food and the charm of the Red House and staff brings me back time and time again.

Our group has a birthday Club consisting of 7 of us. The birthday gal chose this place for lunch We were all delighted The service was excellent and the food was perfect. Two of us love mac and cheese and always try itlighted with her choice when it on the menu and compare. This was outstanding and enough to take home for another meal.The rest had salads and soup and all were delighted with their choice except for one who had the cheese plate and said it was the perfect choice The birthday lady was presented with a delicious complimentary birthday desert which we all shared. Yummy! All meals were presented in a most attractive way..By the time we left the place was full..a sure way to tell if a restaurant is good or not!!
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
A few of girlfriends decided to meet for dinner since we haven't seen each other for a while. Great food, wine, and service. The best part was the price. We ordered a app, 3 entrees and a bottle of wine and it came to $30. We will definitely be back!!

Neighborhood Gem/Destination Spot
Some friends introduced us to Red House about a year ago and we have been frequent diners since then. We don't seem to have a lot of "indie" restaurants in the area and my wife and I are always looking for places with some atmosphere, a good menu and that are not too far away. Red House fits the bill perfectly. We frequently invite friends and we have yet to try something on the menu that we didn't love! The house has historic value, as it was a boarding house for coal miners in the area decades ago and it has a wrap-around deck which is great for seasonal dining (when it's not raining, of course). We like to save Red House for special occasions with friends or just by ourselves. There is also plenty of free and easy parking nearby!

We had lunch at the Red House, and the place is excellent. I had the paella, and the seafood was cooked perfectly. My companion had the salmon sandwich, and the salmon was cooked perfectly as well, and was on excellent bread from the Essential Baking Company. The service was excellent, prompt and friendly. Would definitely go there again.
