Traditional menu items are executed with painstaking precision, keeping the focus on the beauty and fresh flavors of the fish.
We take a creative approach in forging our signature rolls, resulting in inspired combinations of flavor.
I love RED! They always make the freshest sushi and the best drinks! My lychee martini was delicious and my boyfriend, who does not like sushi, loves the burger that’s on the lunch menu! It should be put on the dinner menu as well. My spicy godzilla roll was delicious, as always. RED will always be one of my favorite spots for date night!
Our experience was terrific! We had a antsy toddler with us who made a mess but the staff was very understanding and accommodating. It's great to know you can bring your small child to a nice restaurant and have a a great experience!
Best sushi in Madison!
The only thing keeping us from coming back as often is they took our favorite roll (badger) off the menu.
My girlfriend and I celebrated Valentine’s Day at Red. Hadn’t been there for almost a year and we missed it. We both love the restaurant. The sushi is so creative. The ambiance is very mellow. On our night out we really enjoyed some special cocktails, Old Fashioned’s made with Toki Japanese whiskey. They were very smooth. Our night finished with some wonderful desserts. Our server was very good and knowledgeable. We always love Red and will definitely be back.
Very good very good very good very good very good very good very good very good
Very good sushi. High quality, fresh ingredients. Loved the contemporary design of the restaurant.
We Love Red. It is our go to place anytime we have a special occasion or reason to be out. The food is incredible. My wife is sushi lover and I was not, until we started going here. They have converted me. Service is always top notch. Wide variety of options on the menu. Its never disappointing. Drinks are delicious. The only complaint we have ever had is the seating can be very public and close together. We prefer a more private experience. Overall exceptional.
Great food. Pleasant surroundings. It can get quite crowded in the evening with lots of noise.
Great food and lovely space to dine with friends. Food was REALLY SLOW in delivery with no word from our servers about why. Rather disappointing for such a good restaurant.
Red always exceeds our expectations! We celebrated our sons Birthday! Server was excellent! Can’t wait to go back!!!
Service was very attentive and friendly. The atmosphere was pretty cool. The food was great my wife and I got 2 special rolls and 2 basic rolls and all of them were outstanding. The only issue I had was I used GPS and it dropped me off on the wrong side of the building and it was a little difficult to find the restaurant.
The food and service was fabulous. Slightly surprised by the small portion sizes but overall very pleased!!
My fiancé and I typically love red sushi. Our sushi was great, hoe
Tables were crazy close together, but the food and service were fantastic as always
We came here for our first time ever for our anniversary. We heard it was one of the best restaurants in Madison and it was above our expectations. Our server Elise was absolutely fantastic! She was very knowledgeable about sake and she managed to find some that I liked! I was never a fan of sake before this time. Red gave us some free cava for our anniversary which was really nice. The food was dynamite and the dessert was to die for. We will definitely be back!
Great service, food and staff. the staff is good with suggestions for people who are not sure that they want if would like if they are new to sushi.
As always, a wonderful experience going to Red. They have a lunch special, a great deal. Unfortunately though, one of my friend’s favorite rolls has now been eliminated. Oh well. Plenty of other great choices.
Our waitress was perfect! Best one I've had at RED.
Server was knowledgeable, friendly, and appropriately attentive. The spicy godzilla roll was delicious! Really appreciate that they offer reservations at lunch.
I've been to Red several times and have always enjoyed the experience. I have gotten many different specialty rolls and have never been disappointed. Excellent sushi, delicious cocktails, very pleasant staff and nice atmosphere. The dining areas are a tiny bit crowded especially if you are at a table for two, on busy nights it gets loud.
I pray I’m spelling her name correctly, but our server, Megan, was a DREAM! I am allergic to shellfish and shrimp and have only had sushi a few times, so I had anxiety about getting sushi for our friend’s 30th birthday all week.
When I told Megan about my allergy, she asked a few clarifying questions that immediately put me at ease. When I apologized for the inconvenience, she told me that I should never apologize for being me and that they love their customers just as they are. She took EXTREME care not to cross contaminate and to plate things specially so I could try a dish I otherwise would’ve had to skip!
More than just the allergy help, she was amazing at anticipating needs and joked with our group (who can get a little obnoxious at times). When we left, we talked about how she was easily one of the best servers we’ve ever had.
The food was delicious. I highly enjoyed my philly roll and the rest of the group loved EVERY item they ordered. I would definitely come back in a heart beat and may have even been converted to a sushi lover!
Sushi on my birthday used to be a tradition and this year I felt it was time
Love the food, hate the music. Sounds like new age musak. The brussel sprouts are the best!
Red is the best sushi restaurant in Madison, and is consistently very good. Always enjoy going.
Date night, date night, date night!!! The atmosphere and food and staff were amazing. New favorite!
The sushi and drinks are on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for. Everything was super fresh and delicious.
Always great food and service. Great for date night or family
Red is the best. Best quality sushi I have had in Wisconsin.
Drinks & sushi are always delicious. Had a great girls night out with friends!
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
