Excellent food, large servings. My wife and I split a 20oz bone in filet and it was perfect. For four people, plan for two hours at least if you are getting drinks and apps with dinner. Need reservation several days in advance.

Excellent food and service. Was our first visit and left very impressed and satisfied. Wait staff was extremely knowledgable and offered great recommendations. I now understand why reservations are hard to get.

Red Ash is always amazing! I almost hate to say how great the garlic bread is … If you eat nothing else, get garlic bread which arrives in a bubbling toasty tower. Delicious! All the pastas are to die for and the Meatball appetizer (could be a meal) is killer! I hate to recommend because it’s already hard to get a table! Persevere, book early ans enjoy!

Service was great. The receptionist and waiter were the nicest people. The room was bustling, with tables full of corporate people enjoying their expense accounts. The menu prices, at least by Manhattan standards, were reasonable, especially given the gargantuan sizes of the servings. You can see this is not going to be a Catskill review whining “the food was terrible, and the portions so small.” The portions were huge, but the quality was not much above Olive Garden’s. The pasta was over cooked, way too mushy, and the large portion of not too tasty crab did not redeem it. The osso buco was gigantic, but not flavorful. A few bites were more than enough. I had read about Red Ash, and was glad that it is clearly a commercial success, but sad that it is not a culinary champion.

Red Ash was recommended as a wonderful experience for a special event. So I took my lovely wife for our anniversary celebration dinner. We've been doing that for 43 years, and this may have been the best one yet. Our server was Caleb and he made it very special. The food was unbelievably good, and the entire evening was wonderful. We can't wait to go back, and we're definitely not waiting for another anniversary. Highly rcommended!

Red Ash Is one of fav restaurants to meet up w friends or special occasions. Our server Emma was prompt and offered suggestions on drinks and dinner choices. She was very knowledgeable on the specials that her description had several of us changing our mind and it did NOT disappoint. Dessert and the lemoncello were a perfect way to end our meal! The service is impeccable and the food is always fantastic!

We had a wonderful dinner. Everything was great! Would definitely go back. The pasta was the best. The clam appetizer was so good. Everything was good. We sat on the second level and had a great view of the kitchen. It was amazing to watch the chefs. Our waiter was quite busy, we didn't get to see her much. She was nice and informative.

Staff went out of their way to ensure we were seated in a space we preferred. Server was prompt and checked on us the appropriate amount of times. Our drinks and food came out in a timely manner. The dishes we tried were all amazing. We have dined at numerous restaurants of similar caliber and will definitely be back.

Server was great. Bone Marrow w bread and toppings was exceptional, everything else was just good. For a 4.9 stars on Google with reservations booked out for months, I was expecting to have a mind blowing experience. What we got was solid good-great food, but wasn’t blown away by anything but the bone marrow. Not quite worth the hype it seems. Not quite sure what makes it so special honestly. Enjoyed it though.

As always, food is incredible and service is top notch. Tables were a little too close together and would recommend a little more distance. Not but 2 feet from next person, which wasn't very ideal. We were on top level, which was incredibly cold. Otherwise, everything else was remarkable!
