We came across this restaurant on Open Table. The reviews droves us to go there. Brought another couple. Everything was exceptional. Had a Dorada fish special that was simply seasoned and grilled and tasted great. Salad with house dressing was perfect. And a bit of desert to celebrate a birthday which was comped. Just go see for yourself.

Never disappoints!! Appetizers: The vegetables puree soup & Crab cakes were excellent. Entrees: We both had the Pasta Special; Tagliatelle with Porcini Mushrooms. Very good, although the tagliatelle were a bit over cooked.

This was our second visit with friends. The first time 4 of the 6 of us loved their meal with 2 rating it as ok. This visit 4 of 7 thought their meals were good-very good with 3 funding the entree to be less than expected. For example, my pasta dish seemed to be over cooked. Given the inconsistent quality, we can only score the food as 3 stars.

Service here is very good and the setting is simple but attractive. The noise level is very low, making it excellent for conversing with your dining partners.

I will give a 4 star overall to the restaurant, the lower rating on service is that we felt they wanted us to leave fast, the busboy came to take the salad and the dessert and we had not finished, you can not feel pushed out.

We were intrigued by the great reviews we saw and decided to try Red Carpet Restaurant. The service was excellent from the moment we arrived. They greeted us with a smile and warm welcome as if we had dined there before. The attention was top notch from the beginning to the end. The owner is there to great everyone and work side-by-side with his staff. That alone is to be commented and that is why the business is so great! He is professional, hospitable, and lively.

As for the food, everything we ordered was delicious! I can’t say enough, we were very impressed. While the restaurant is located in a small strip shopping mall, do not let that fool you, this is one of the “hidden gems” in our community.

It is very difficult to find restaurants in Miami that are as friendly, courteous and professional as this. The staff actually smiled and were very inviting.

Side note to other restaurants in the Miami area, you could surely take some lessons from the Red Carpet Restaurant.

Bravo!!

Food and service were excellent. Came here for the first time last year and it’s become one of my favorite restaurants to go to. I live near Manhattan, we’re there known for their great Italian food. This place is just as good as New York’s il Mulino or Rao’s. If you’re in the area or just looking for some good Italian cuisine definitely give this place a try.

We love eating at Red Carpet, it’s like having a meal at your families home. Jorge and Alfredo and the entire staff welcome you like you belong to their family everytime you come to their restaurant. The food is always delicious, try the corvina, chicken parmaggiana, and the ravioli are always good choices. You cannot go wrong with anything on their nenu.

Súper nice!

Just like a home cooked meal! Great taste and ingredients even though a bit limited for an Italian menu. Need more Italian entres.

Also, I don’t know why any restaurant would offer Fillet Mignon or Lobster as a special? There’s nothing special about that...just a more expensive choice . I’d rather they offered a daily Italian special. That would make the restaurant awesome!

It’s pretty good now....but could be great!

Exceptional excellence! Warmly greeted by owner Alfredo we settled in for a relaxing meal. Alfredo’s recommendation of a Prosecco, Corta all’s Flora was the perfect pairing for our meal. Salmon, Veal, Carpaccio all delicious and the included salad and Carrot soup were fresh and nicely presented. Mike and Alfredo were attentive in their service.
I’ve been supporting this family owned restaurant since they opened and given the “fickle” city Miami can be, it’s great to see a restaurant survive on good food and customer service in a non descriptive location off the beaten path. Enjoy!

We truly enjoyed everything about this restaurant. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. We ordered the chicken Parmesan and it was very tasty with just the right amount of marinara sauce. The chicken al funghi was moist, flavorful and delicious. My husband got the Bistecca di Manzo and it was cooked to perfection. The meat was very tender and the Parmesan risotto was one of the best we’ve had. Would truly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Been a few times now, and it’s still good. Food was good, though the French Onion Soup was pretty salty, too salty in fact, and while this kind of thing happens once in a while and is certainly forgivable, it led to a not-so-great service experience. We let our waiter know that the soup was really too salty to eat, and he was understanding, apologetic, and promptly took it away. He can back a moment later to tell us that the manager wanted to come over and talk to us and apologize - great, right? Not so much...the manager, was nice enough, but prefaced the conversation by saying “I understand that you found the FOS to be too salty. Just to let you know, you’re the first person to complain about this tonight, and I tasted it earlier and I didn’t find it too salty, but if you think it’s too salty then ok...” My wife and I were looking at each other during this statement, as though to say to one another “not the right way to start this conversation,” and the manager picked up on that and asked us what the issue was. It really went downhill from there. I explained to him that I really didn’t think that was the right way to initiate this kind of conversation, and he really didn’t get it. He just kept going on about he wanted us to be happy, that the customer has to be happy and that’s the most important thing, etc. In the end, he took the soup of the check and bought us dessert, so for sure the establishm
