Went for date night dinner. We enjoyed our cocktails, apetizers, meal, and desserts. Food was absolutely delicious. Service was prompt and and polite. Tables were very intimate for a romantic group of two, maybe too small for some. The music where we sat was on the louder side, but we were seated close to a speaker as well.
Sushi was covered in panko. Heaping piles of it. The great thing about sushi is that you expect to have a flourless meal. The rolls were closer to room temperature so they fell apart when you ate them. Expected more from this restaurant.
Came prior to see an Overture musical! Loved our experience!
Best sushi in Madison. Prove me wrong! The lunch special - 6 pieces of sushi and a roll for $17 is a great deal.
The spicy ramen was delicious. Sushi is sushi to me but my wife loved it.
Excellent service, excellent food, beautiful presentation.
The quality of the service and food is above average for the cost. If you like Sushi, I can't possibly imagine how you would not be satisfied with Red.
Never disappointed, servers are knowledgeable, good sake selection and amazing sushi
Spot on delicious
We tried walking in multiple times only to rebuffed. Finally got it together enough to make a reservation. Food was great. Waiter seemed new but was capable. Looking forward to our next visit - unfortunately we know it won’t be spontaneous.
Great place for excellent sushi and outstanding service.
Amazing as always. Love this place. The service,
food, and drinks are always amazing
The food, experience and service were outstanding!
Although the food was very good and reasonably priced, we were disappointed that the only Chardonnay offered was a minimum for 42 dollars a bottle. Would be less likely to choose this restaurant since we enjoy wine with dinner, but have no interest in paying that much for it.
Sat at the sushi table and enjoyed watching the chefs. Fun evening!
Our first time at Red proved that this is one of the best restaurants in Madison.
Fabulous waitstaff, yummy food and a modern vibe.
Very quick service and the food was delicious!! 😛
Great experience despite waiting 30 minutes after our reservation time for our table for 4. They did bring us complimentary Brussels sprouts to apologize for the wait.
Great meal! Being able to eat Vegan at a sushi restaurant is such a treat. Very creative rolls. Expensive, but worth a special treat. Nut Roll is a favorite!
Everything was amazing as it always is!! My very favorite spot in Madison or most anywhere!!
The service was great. Sushi was perfection. It was the perfect location for a birthday celebration.
Going to Red was such a treat! By far the best meal I have had in Madison!
Absolutely my favorite Madison restaurant! Amazing sushi and exquisite handcrafted cocktails. Always willing to accommodate food allergies. Bartenders are fantastic!
This was my first time and I loved it. Great ambiance, very fun and comfortable atmosphere. The food was amazing! We got a variety of sushi rolls and they were all very different but amazing! i can't wait to go back!
Food was delicious and service very good.
Great service. Food was also delicious and fresh.
Excellent, fresh sushi! Great atmosphere, great drinks. Excellent waitstaff and service.
The vegan cake (dry, tasteless) with poached pair (hard as a rock, off putting taste), the Smore creme brulee were both a huge disappointment. Server cleared plates and glassware before we finished (busy talking and he was gone before we could tell him no). Felt like it wasn't a good value due to the above.
The food was amazing. Our reservation was early, 6:00pm. It was not busy and we got seated at a table for 2. The hostess sat another couple right next to us even though there were plenty of tables available. The couple even apologized that they ended up right next to us. The whole time we heard what they were talking about and they heard what we were talking about. It was really uncomfortable and unnecessary.
We had to wait for our reservation- but staff was very attentive.
Fairly good sushi/sashimi for the Midwest. The menu selection is short but decent. The beer/cocktail/wine/sake list is especially broad. Roll I had was great (Toro negihama) the sashimi (sake) was good but you get small thin pieces. The wine lists is short but they offer some really good bottles (2 different Ridge wines from CA - Lytton Sprints - Petit Sirah and Pagani Ranch - Zinfandel). Based on the wines I know they were only ~2X retail value. Good place - funky with a coast/big city vibe & decor
The Ume Sour was delicious. Service was great. The two rolls I ordered were the least favorite I have had anywhere in Madison, or really anywhere period in a long time, especially the spider roll which is usually a favorite of mine. I was pretty disappointed, especially considering the prices and how long I'd been waiting to go to Red's new location (not that new anymore, I know). I probably won't return.
The wait was extremely long and even with a reservation we ended up having to wait 45 minutes past that before we got seated.
They serve one of the best Sushi's I ever had. The ambiance is amazing.
A great surprise!!! We will be back. The rolls were creative and very fresh great combinations of flavors.
Fantastic service! RED went above and beyond to make us feel special for our anniversary celebration. And the sushi was incredible! Our only complaint was that our food took a long time to arrive (50 minutes from the time we ordered until plates arrived).
First time - we'll be back. Close to the Square. Good sushi. Tight quartes for seating.
This is a beautiful place with awesome food, but small portions. While my children were full, my husband asked to stop for food on the way home. The service was excellent!
Rob, Kevin and Nate (bartenders) not only made fabulous creative cocktails based on what we like, but made sure we were enjoying dinner all through our evening. We've been here twice in the last week. Red is our new favorite Madison restaurant!
