For a restaurant that is this expensive, I expected allergies to be handled with care, which they were not. A manager didn’t even come to speak with our table after serving the wrong meal to a customer with a severe allergy. Had to leave the restaurant in fear of an anaphylactic reaction.

Disappointing. Best dish was the calamari appetizer, which was outstanding. Shrimp cocktail was average. Prime filet was so over salted, I cut off the crust. The mac and cheese was too salty to eat. In contrast, the potatoes au gratin were bland and soupy. We expected better. Our over-worked server certainly did her best to keep her tables moving.

They sat us in an upstairs room that had no decor. Not what you’d expect from a high end restaurant.

Came for a birthday dinner. Had a problem and requested to speak with a manager, he threw his hands up. I left to de-escalate the situation. Was charged $200 after ordering drinks. Called the store to speak with a STORE MANAGER, he laughed after I expressed my confusion and hung up while I was still talking…the “STORE MANAGER”.

We enjoy red every year for our anniversary. We have never had a bad experience until this year. When we arrived at 6pm we were seated promptly but then almost 20 minutes before our sever came over and got us waters. His attitude was very short and rushed even though they were not overly busy. Every question I asked I felt like I got a snarky response or an eye roll. We ordered cocktails and they were strong. Which normally we wouldn’t complain except I couldn’t even enjoy it. My husband even agreed that it was way to strong to be enjoyable. We had no complaints about the food. We did enjoy our complimentary donuts for our celebration however it would of been nice to have been offered to see the dessert menu and a coffee. This year we were not impressed by the service and maybe that’s pandemic related but we will give them another try next year.

Our server, Dan, was outstanding. He was extremely knowledgeable and made great suggestions to our group. Every steak was cooked perfectly, the side dishes were plenty to share. The beet salad was incredibly delicious. We will be dining at Red again!

When we sat down to eat their fire alarm went off, that went on for over half an hour. After about twenty minutes a manager came to tell us all was well and apologized. Our server started our the evening with a bit of attitude but after a while settled down. For appetizers we ordered the steak tartare which is truly nothing notable and a Caesar salad which was excellent. The bread with dipping oil and cheese simply tasted like a miniature hard french baguette dipped in olive oil. Our entrees where filet mignon and a rib eye, the filet mignon was cooked to a perfect medium but their signature is to sear the exterior in some special oil which is so seared and salty that it makes the steak difficult to enjoy. The rib eye we ordered medium as well which the server mentioned was not their medium (it was over cooked) but did nothing about., once again their sear made this steak impossible to eat and only one quarter of the steak was consumed which none of the staff asked if something was wrong with, especially after the server had already mentioned was over cooked. The fingerling potatoes were excellent. The server decided that the donut holes would be on the house, they were good but we enjoyed our donuts much better at Dunkin’ Donuts the next morning which did not cost over $200 rather $12. We were very disappointed because we came in from out of town to attend a wedding and that was our evening out on our own.

We went for my husband’s birthday. He ordered the porterhouse medium rare (that was their special) and I got the king crab legs. We split the green bean side and the truffle whipped potatoes. All of the food was amazing. One of the best steaks he’s ever had. Everything was cooked perfectly as well. Our bill after tip was around $200. So not an every weekend type meal, but it was well worth the splurge. Attentive staff and nice ambiance. Nothing to complain about at all.

Courteous staff.
The steak was expensive but ok.
The salmon definitely tasted like it was frozen, not fresh. It had a strange granular texture. The pea pods were very tough and difficult to chew.
Our waitress was professional but appeared to be overworked (probably due to the ubiquitous “labor shortage”)
Location was great. Overall decent but not worth the money.

Our food was outstanding as was the service. Honestly one of the best steaks I’ve had in my life. The sides were large and able to be shared. The only negative I had is that we stated on reservation we were there for a business meeting. They sat us at the back of the bar in a booth where servers constantly came and went and finished plates sat down behind us. The food was impeccable, service was great but the constant disruption of conversation left the ambiance lacking.
