I love this place. It's got a cozy, warm atmosphere. Great for a date or leisurely dinner with friends where you can talk and relax without too much noise or too much quiet.

The food is original and very tasty. They have a large wine selection and the wait staff is very helpful and professional. We were late because of traffic and phoned ahead to let them know about the delay and they held our table for our party of six. We will definitely be back.

My most favorite place to eat in downtown Renton! It’s tucked away, so you kind of have to look for it to find it, but I’m so glad I did! It is a nice place for a sunny brunch with friends as well as a romantic location for a date; especially if you go at night when they turn on the hanging lights outside. The food is also nothing short I excellent! 10/10

Beautiful on warm days/evenings, with a great porch/garden area. You'll enjoy it whether you sit out there or inside. This is the best south-of-Columbia-City restaurant I've been to in the Seattle area.

We visited the Red House for the 2nd time on my husband's birthday. It was wonderful (again) and I don't know why it took us so long to go back. I am already planning my next trip. We had the mushroom bruschetta, the mussels, meatballs and a salad and were plenty full. We took our chocolate dessert home and ate it later. It was all fantastic - the flavors were creative and delicious (I can't stop thinking about the mushrooms). The service was amazing - she was friendly and knowledgable giving us good advice and checking with us often enough but not too much. The wine prices are excellent and you can get a wine probably at any price point.

Normally this is wonderful but this time we were a bit surprised. The bottle of beer was out of date by several YEARS, the Chipino was dry and lacked flavor and my New York steak was so tough and full of fat and gristle that I could not eat it. Salad, steak and glass of house wine was over $50.!

My husband and I really enjoyed this place. The wine was amazing, food was good and service was spectacular! They took really good care of us and made sure everything was perfect. They did end up running out of the only desert we wanted, but our waitress was so sweet, she brought us 2 little chocolate deserts in replace of the desert we wanted which was very nice! I would totally recommend this place for date night, girls night or any night really!

This is place that you can't beat. Good food. Great Wine selection. Great service. And if you are lucky, you might get to chat with the owners. If you are looking for an intimate setting. Probably not...but this place is terrific to bring out of town guests for good food, wine and drinks.

Great unique restaurant (its literally in what used to be a residential home) with great food, but a bit of a dated ambiance. A bit loud and it could be slightly more "cosy". But I definitely will return. the food was awesome.. I have been 3x and always tried their "special" entre and it has always been fabulous.

Mostly hits, a few misses (on dishes), but a really nice place. Great wine selection. Service is friendly but they can be understaffed. If the place is packed, it's really noisy so I recommend mid-week or Sunday evenings.
