Wide variety of food on the menu. Will come back as there are more things on the menu that I want to try.
music on Sundays outside under umbrellas with $5 Sangria and Tapas??? yes please!!!
Good food, nice ambiance.....what else could you ask for!?!
If you have little kids or are entertaining the steak and potatoes crowd, this is NOT the place for you.
Luna Red is a great place for tapas - amazing cheese selection and fresh veggies - all locally grown and purchased. This is a fabulous date restaurant if you are looking for a place to have a drink and share some food. Be warned - Thursday nights and Friday nights in the summer you really need reservations since it is down town and there are a lot of activities going on.
We visit here every summer & I was disappointed when I realized we had been missing out on such a great restaurant the last couple of years. We had four tapas that were excellent. The waiter did an excellent job in advising us as well. We have a dear friend back home that has a Tapas restaurant & I kept sending him pictures & descriptions of what we were eating.
Can't wait to go back & try some of the lamb dishes..The entire staff was very well in tune.
The food was delicious, the service was superb, and the setting was excellent.
This was out first visit and we will definitely be back. So many yummy choices! Definitely a place to go with more people so you can try more things. Loved every dish. Quality of food was amazing. Definitely go!
Obviously a well reviewed restaurant, Luna Red lived up to the positive reviews. My wife and I stuck with the tapas menu and were overwhelmingly satisfied. Service was exceptional and the ambiance quite pleasant. Definitely a SLO gem.
My husband &I ordered several tapas items. The shrimp adobo - great flavor, if you like coconut curry flavor you'll live this one. Our other favorites were wildboar ribs & pork belly. Lastly, lived the chorizo stuffed dates. The only item.that was average was the calamari. But maybe because the other tapas were amazing. Also, liked that you could order half glasses of wine.
Really great meal at Luna Red. We had a large group and got to have some really tasty dishes. Calamari ail chili sauce was a favorite.
We had a great experience at Luna Red. Our server was very friendly and attentive. The food was really great as well. It was our first time dining there, and we will be back!
My wife and I went to Luna Red during the Saturday night of our stay in San Luis Obispo. The outdoor dining looked very pleasant but they sat us inside, and in a corner though they were not busy inside. This became more frustrating when a couple came in and were given a larger table near us. Still we enjoyed the food very much. The small plates are great for sharing. The highlights were the cornbread and mac n' cheese. I only gave the service three stars because the food came out very slowly, which was disconcerting considering that it was not busy inside at all. What should have been a 1 hr 15 min meal took 2 hours. Our server was very pleasant though. Worth another try; they might have been short-staffed on that particular night.
I had my family in for Memorial Day and we decided to go out to dinner at the San Luis Obispo location. My reservation from several weeks prior asked for a table overlooking the creek but we didn't get one on the creek. Unfortunate. The tapas were very good but the service was slow and we decided to go elsewhere for the main course rather than stay. That too was unfortunate.
The server was friendly and informative but not very available.
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here and we could not have enjoyed ourselves more. Our server Kristen was vivacious, attentive and knowledgable about the menu and the wine list.the highlights of the meal were the stuffed piquillo peppers, fish tacos & the chicken empandas. Kristen's wine recommendation was spot on. The patio dining was perfect, except for my wife's need to have a heat lamp right on top of us ;-). Overall a great experience and I look forward to returning.
its a great place to take out of town guests. good menu choices for all needs....and yummy!!!!! patio seating is also wonderful...
