Love it! Had a great time with my BFF!! Definitely will be going back soon!
Stopped by on a Sunday evening coming back from the shore. Had a great table for watching the Ferrari's pass by on the street. Sushi rolls were very tasty, tuna was fresh, and service was great. One of our party had forgotten to mention she had a sesame allergy and the waitress took back the sushi roll and had a new one made without the sesame.
Best dish was ceviche (a special) - others were tasteless: an arugula salad with fried goat cheese was drowning in dressing; the rabbit special was dry, greasy and bland; the lemon pepper tuna was better - but again, little taste. Asked for a second glass of wine which came 10 minutes later, after I'd finished my meal. Even the bread tasted a day old. Not sure why this place got high reviews on yelp and other places - we are not going back.
We had a great meal once again here, we also try the $20 wine special on Monday night and the wine we had was very good. The young man that was our server was a delight, personality was great, will see him and Red again soon
Everything was wonderful--the service as well as the food - with ONE glaring exception--- the restaurant is TOO DARK--- we sat upstairs and everyone whipped out their smartphones to use the flashlight app so that they could read the menu. Trendy? I don't think so. It just seemed silly to me.
Sushi, lobster tail, fillet mignon............wonderful dining experience!
The service and wine list were fine, but our dinner was a disappointment. Two in our party had the grouper, which was good, but the portion of risotto was so small they could just about find it. My friend and I had the orange roughy. It's hard to comment on the taste, while it was rather fishy, the portion was so small it didn't really matter. The a la carte side dishes were really good, and thank goodness we ordered them so we at least felt as if we had eaten a meal. For a rather expensive dinner, we expected far better.
We're local and dine here quite often. The last couple times we've eaten here the service hasn't been very good. It was as if we were last on the staffs list, very inattentive. Took way too long to come to our table, didn't pay attention when we ordered and brought us incorrect items, had to ask twice for the same thing because the server admitted they forgot. Since it was a low key evening the last time we were in, I have no idea why the service was so lacking? The food was pretty good and we like that they changed up the menu a bit, but whoever runs this place better address the staff issues. The who cares attitude and lack of professionalism is going to do nothing but cause RED to lose business.
Have been here many times, and Red is one of our favorites. Food was great as usual but service was... Well sloppy. Waiter was very friendly and courtious, but was rarely around. Had to ask the manager for drinks. Never did get bread. Ordered a 2nd bottle of wine with dinner which came after the 4 of us were done. Sent it back and ordered 2 after dinner drinks. Then the surprise... Waiter came back with 3, said the bartender poured an extra. I figured, he's going to make up for the weak service so far. No such luck, server gave us our 2, toasted us and drank the 3rd in front of us!! Then charged us for 2nd wine bottle! Will probably give them another chance, but if we have another episode like this, we'll be crossing Red off our list.
When we arrived, we were seated at a table for 2 between two parties of 6. Needless to say, it was very loud. I immediately asked to be moved and the host obliged without question and we were seated in a much quieter area. Our server Brian was attentive and on point with the recommendations. The appetizers were great but the entrees were a bit small. All in all, the food was very good and the service was great. I would dine here again.
