I have been coming here for years, and remain fond of the place, but this was one of my least favorite experiences. I had the duck special, and the meat was a little difficult for me to cut with the table knife on my table. I kept looking for server to ask for a steak knife or something similar, but he was nowhere to be seen. In fact, we never saw him again until he asked if we wanted dessert.

The Red House can be a little noisy at times, owing to the acoustics and layout of the charming building it is in.

Low marks for service on this visit. For $60 for two, we expect a little better.

We went for Valentine's, and ordered their special of the day. Salads, cheese plate, 20 oz steak, dessert. We had two glasses of a fine Malbec with this. The steak was particularly fun, as it arrived as one slab, so we each had to cut off what we wanted. Might not be to everyone's taste, but it felt playful to us, so in the spirit of V-Day.

For me, on a five star rating, 4 means a regional draw. So I would have no trouble recommending the Red House to folks from, say, Redmond or Tacoma.

We’ve always enjoyed this restaurant and the vibe, food, wine, and service. The wine shop aspect is fun. Never had been seated upstairs in the small room before, and so this was a first. It has a few tables for two in it, and we quickly realized it was hard for our conversation in there to be private. Other rooms have adequate ambient noise so this isn’t an issue. Overall love the place but will avoid that room in the future. By the way, the paella dish is wonderful!

The host made up for the lack of attention from the waitress, and the Paella was tasty, though not as good as I remembered. I bit disappointed in this visit but I'll go back.

Second time here and a little disappointed. Tried to serve entrees before appetizers. When they brought the entrees back, 2 of them were cold and had to be returned again and remade. Two in our party ordered paella - one liked it, the other said it was bland. Lasagne was good. Mac & cheese with crab was bland. But appetizers were excellent. Lamb Meatballs were well seasoned and slightly spicy. Crab Cakes were mostly crab, not a lot of filler. House salad was very fresh with a tasty dressing that had a bit of zip. Enjoyed the Disruptive Cabernet (very smooth) and the Sangria (very fruity). The Blueberry Cheesecake was smooth, creamy and not too sweet. They were very generous about messing up the entrees and did not charge for the paella. In the future, we will stick with the tapas and skip the entrees.

No attention to proper coursing pace. We ordered a salad, one hot appetizer, and two hot entrees. The salad came out first but we were only given about 5 minutes to eat it before everything else was brought to the table at once! No restaurant should allow that to happen. This required us to eat the hot food dishes and appetizer all at once before they could get cold. We were finished in just 45 minutes and a $90 bill (only one glass of wine was ordered). Had the courses been properly timed we would have been able to enjoy the meal more thoroughly and would have purchased more wine. This dinner reminded us of touristy restaurants in Europe where waiters could care less about their guests and people are rushed in and out as fast as possible. Terrible.

A wonderful meal with co-workers on one of our few "down time" evenings. Service was a bit slow with our waiter not coming back regularly. Our meals were impeccable, the Red House salad and lamb meatballs were amazing, fresh and tasty!

This was our 3rd time eating here during the past 2 years, and we continue to be pleased with the quality of the food and the wine selection. My son was visiting from Phoenix, and he also enjoyed our experience. We were seated on the upper level, which isn't long on ambience and can get very loud if there are large parties. However, Renton is scarce on better quality restaurants, and The Red House is that category. Recommended.

The waiter was knowledgeable and charming and offered us a free glass of wine for the wait (which wasn’t too noticeable to us). The wine he recommended went well with our meal. The meal itself left us wanting more and we finished it off with a recommended 4-layer chocolate dessert that also paired well with the wine. Overall, it was a wonderful environment and experience with both service and food.

We have been many times before. It was a quiet for a week day, but I felt service was slow, we had to wait for our waiter, not sure where he was disappearing to. He seemed a little stressed or something, we had to ask for what the special was. He had a thick accent, and spoke really fast, like he did not want us to understand. However not being American myself I was able to figure out what he was saying. The food has been better, we actually ended up taking our check downstairs to pay because we wanted to leave and he was nowhere to be seen. There was a blond waiter..I would recommend that he tie his hair back before he serves food because it was all over the place. I will go back...

I would categorize Red House as a hidden gem and a welcome find in an area of Seattle that seems to be a bit of a restaurant wasteland. The servers are enthusiastic and well informed. I look forward to my next meal at Red House.

New management has ruined Red House. I’ve not been here for about 9 months. It’s nothing it was before. Rude waiter, food slapped on a plate felt prepackaged...what a shame. Gallo salami...Costco crackers... ask for the ‘Rustic bread’ that comes with plate and more Costco crackers dropped on table without so much as a word...really? When we arrived and the place was empty, we should have left. I will not be back.

It's a lot more fun when you can sit outside on their terrace. We were seated at an okay table upstairs, but it got a bit noisy once the beer tasting event started. Great food, with a Mediterranean tapas vibe. The Paella had the right flavor profile; the chorizo and chicken were a little dry, but the mussels and clams were delicious and fresh-tasting. They have a good wine selection, and their Sangria with fresh fruit was delicious and authentic.

The food was great and they paired it with some excellent wine for us. It is a very relaxed environment and they were playing 80s and 90s music which my wife and I loved. There is a huge selection of wine and some rare beers to be found as well. Not an everyday meal due to the price, but we will definitely be back.

I have been a regular customer at Red House for a couple of years but last night's dinner on 10/12 was so disappointing. I took my mother out for what I hoed would be a nice meal but both the service and food were less than stellar. The server did not clarify the order so our plates arrived at different times. In addition, the salmon was significantly under done. Would recommend that servers ask how the customer would like did to be done. For an $80+ meal I was very unhappy. I will not be returning unless the management would like to comp this meal and provide their team with another opportunity to retain this customer.

I had been to the Red House many times and this time was a special evening as I was bringing my girlfriend for the first time. Staff is always great and we were seated on the second floor in front of window as requested which was great. Unfortunately there was a group of ladies having a very nice time but so loud very hard to have a pleasant conversation between us. We then unfortunately received our dinners before our appetizers and then they brought them out while eating. The crab cakes had a weird smell and my girlfriend was unable to eat which we informed the staff. They were kind enough to remove the appetizers from our bill.
