We have been looking for a restaurant like this for a while. Great food and wine.

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.

Valentine’s Day

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!

Nice Valentine Menu. Porterhouse dinner for two very good and great value.

Restaurant needs ambience. Very stark table settings and surrounding . Old house and could be charming with a little decor .

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.
