What a great hidden gem. I miss the larger selection of available beers, but those still available was current and of high quality. Dinner with Orlando remains an amazing experience. Will definitely be back; please don't take the falafel frites off of the menu.

Great attentive service! The food was delicious as usual including lasagna and mac and cheese with bacon. Oh and save room for the espresso crème brulee! Delicious!

Loved the locally sourced seafood offerings to host a friend visiting from California. Fun to try the falafel fries with tzatziki before Taylor steamed clams. Guests liked the paella! Appreciated the swift service since I had an after dinner obligation.

We had a bad experience here on Valentine’s Day. My husband and I never send food back but my steak and his salmon were not even warm all the way through. They took the food back and brought us new dinners, but my steak was almost completely fat, there was maybe a bite or two of meat. His salmon was better, but still very much undercooked. They gave us a complementary desert to try and compensate, but even that was not completely cooked when it came out and certainly did not make up for us having to pay for two inedible entrees. I used to love this place and I really hope they turn things around. Overall my waitress was very nice.

We are regulars at Red House, so we obviously love it. Orlando and Matt have been our regular servers for years and they are always very welcoming and personable, as are all of the staff. The food is always outstanding and the ambiance in the old home is comfortable yet classy. The wine library is my favorite room, but the natural edge wood bar upstairs is pretty neat, too. The sangria is amazing (I normally don’t like Sangria, but theirs is pretty special), as is the butternut squash hummus (when in season). Gene’s lasagna and the salmon entrees are my favorite go-tos, but everything else on the menu is good to. We celebrate most special occasions at Red House; it is such a treat to eat here.

Four of our five meals were good, but the pork was hard and dry, barely edible. Our server was great about it, and the others were happy with their meal.

I always LOVE the food at Red House! Their salads are fabulous, however the limited and very close proximity of tables make the dining experience like a group activity.

Excellent dinner. Fabulous food which was great for both vegetarians and carnivores in our group. Reasonable prices bottles of wine. Amazing server who provided great food suggestions. Only minus was small space for table - so it was hard to distinguish our conversation from the table next to us.

We’ve been coming to Red House for at least 13+ years; we followed Gene from when he had his Italian Restaurant “Genes” in Renton.

We enjoy the atmosphere! All of the staff are awesome, very professional & friendly! We feel like a member of the family more than customers.

The food is spectacular, compliments to the chef & his staff!

Thank you Gene, Huong, Orlando, & Staff!!!

Very funky vibe and reminded me of places on Rainy Street in Austin, TX which I also like a lot. I was told about the place by a colleague and we both enjoyed ourselves and the next time I'm back at Valley Med Ctr in Renton I'll be back to try other items on the menu and the local micro-brews. Good job!!!

I met a friend for lunch this past Saturday. The service was adequate, although the server was a little curt. My main issue was the temperature in the dining area. It was so cold that we (along with other guests) needed to wear our jackets during our meal in order to be comfortable. I seems that the heating system is not sufficient for the space. For that reason I can't recommend Red House during the late fall through winter.

Service was terrible. Our server was not attentive or friendly. Pork chop was overcooked. Also menu online wasn’t current. The whole reason we went was for the risotto and they didn’t have it.

Red House offers such a variety of ways to enjoy a great meal! The Tapas menu is varied and delicious. Portion sizes on entrees are generous. Service is excellent. We ordered a couple of Tapas and split an entree. One of my favorite places in all of Puget Sound to spend an evening dining and sharing conversation with a friend. Was another wonderful experience at Red House!
