My husbands filet was perfectly cooked and delish! My crab cakes possibly the best I’ve ever had, came with a white cocktail sauce. Yummy! Brussels sprouts were very very good. Service was timely and on point. No negatives here.

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.

Our server Dan was very attentive and friendly. We were seated upstairs which doesn’t have the ambiance of the first floor but it was fine.

The best experience EVER! We come from Erie, PA just for dinner at Red once or twice a year, for my birthday or special occasion. I’ve had 5 open heart surgeries, stage 4 cancer and go for monthly immunotherapy at The Cleveland Clinic so we have to be extremely careful during the pandemic with my immune system, we had Nicole as our waitress, she remembered us from 2 years ago, she is the kindest person and reminds us there are good people in the world. She went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect for me and my family with my health issues and she saw we were wearing our masks, so she very politely wore a mask as well that was extremely considerate and made our visit. We ordered our usual cab prime filet mignons, truffle mashed potatoes, and vegetable all the best we ever had, we always can never find the perfect steak temperature between medium and medium well but Nicole told the kitchen staff exactly how we wanted them prepared and they were perfect!!! Best steak in our lives, I’m obsessed with the truffle mashed potatoes and everything is incredibly well seasoned which we loved. We can’t wait to come back next year for the amazing steaks and the incredible Nicole!!! Couldn’t asked for a better evening everything was perfect

This was the fourth time I have been to Red. I live 75 miles away, and get to Cleveland for the occasional game or event and pair that with dinner. Formerly dinner was always at Morton's. Red is at least equal to Morton's in every way, and in some ways, superior. The steaks have always been perfect; the sides delicious; and the desserts criminally decadent. (Try the rum cake.) I have always been impressed with the wait staff and managers, who are friendly and accessible. Thank you, Red, for another great experience! And, by the way, my friend (who has never been to Red before) said it was the best steak (ribeye) he ever had.

Despite letting Red know it was a 25 year wedding anniversary celebration, my wife and I were seated at a pretty crappy table - near the kitchen doors. It was noisy and about as unromantic as you could imagine. Food and drinks were good but definitely not worth the price. I would recommend Strip in Avon over Red downtown based on quality and value of food as well as the ambiance of the restaurant.

We had received a gift certificate for Red some time back. We have never been to Red before and to be honest didn't know/remember it was in Cleveland until we received the certificate. Wow had we been missing out! I had the Prime Ribeye, wife had the Prime Filet, we shared a Cesar salad, Asparagus and Au Gratin Potatoes. Steaks and sides were prepared perfectly. The service was phenomenal. Red is a must go place from here on.

The food is always great here, but the service puts it over the top.
Very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Solid knowledge of the menu and options, willing to share opinions and suggestions.
Haven't been in a while (too long) but Red is back on the list for one of my favorites.

Overall this would’ve been a great experience had it not been for our server, Rebecca. She was horrible. She didn’t even introduce herself. I had to ask her what her name was. We were celebrating my dads 70th birthday and ordered a bottle of wine. We had to request she bring us the wine list and then she made us wait at least 15 minutes just to order what we wanted to drink. Once our glasses were empty, she never stopped over to refill our glasses or ask us if we wanted more to drink. Further, she was missing in action most of the dinner. My husband and I eat at fine dining restaurants frequently and this was NOT the level of service we are accustomed to. Since it was my dads birthday I didn’t make a fuss but I really wanted to leave because I watched our server ignore us the entire evening while she tended to another table. Once we finished dinner, she brought my dad a complimentary dessert which was nice. However, we had to REQUEST dessert menus for everyone else at the table because she did not think to offer anyone else dessert. Ridiculous! I will not be back!

Waiter not pleasant, Old fashioned made with rye, not made with bourbon. Undrinkable. $60 ribeye covered in thick layer of pepper, why?!Did not indicate that it would be on the menu.
Beet salad poor. Bread was delicious!
