We were ignored by the server, served food that we didn't order and clearly stated I was allergic to, steaks were cold, salad wasn't split after requesting, seated in the bar by servers station when we had a reservation...need I go on

One of my favorite steak houses in Cleveland. The prime filet mignon is excellent and all of the sides I have tried (mashed potatoes, mushrooms, etc.) have been great too. If you go ribeye perhaps step down to non-prime for better marbling.

The wine list is solid and the staff is always welcoming and accommodating.

Overall a good place to dine for lunch. My only disappointment was that our server was a little inattentive and slow to return. The restaurant was not busy at all so that wasn't the excuse. But I still recommend Red for a nice lunch.

I had a bone-in ribeye which was fantastic. Wife had bone-in Strip which was also excellent. Side of gnocchi was good and so was the salad. Overall I thought food was excellent. A bit overpriced in my opinion.

Incredibly overpriced to the point that it’s ridiculous. Half of the menu was unavailable without any prior notice to anyone who made reservations. This is a restaurant that people go to get noticed not for the best food and service in town. Save 40-50% and go to Morton’s or Ruth’s Chris instead.

We went to Red, The Steakhouse to celebrate some milestones. The food is amazing from the appetizers, to the desserts! My biggest complaint was that service was VERY slow. We got there at 8:00pm on a Saturday, and our main dinners were not served until 10:15pm. We had appetizers and drinks, and those took forever to arrive too. They were out of their signature aged steak, which was the main reason we drove an hour to dine there, so we were a little disappointed. The steaks we ordered were delicious and nice sized. All our side dishes were wonderful. We had a group of eight so we ordered different dishes and passed them around to share. The acoustics are awful, so if you plan to visit you won't be able to hear each other. We did try to talk to each other across the table, but after awhile gave up and just spoke to the person next you. Overall it was a great meal and we will definitely recommend it for special occasions.

Good service and very good food, but a reminder that I'm not enough of a foodie to justify paying steakhouse prices (eg. $30+ for the cheapest entrees, plus $10-15 for each side dish). I can easily think of half a dozen places where I spent half as much and enjoyed my meal just as well.

I had calamari, prime strip steak with bearnaise and asparagus....drank a beer and a glass of red wine...topped it off with some blueberry sorbet...off the charts good. I expected that, I got that, I paid for that...I’ve been to red’s a dozen times...they are 12/12. I’ll do it again.

It was restaurant week and wanted to give Red's a try. Great wine list, service, and complete meal. Twin filets with mushroom risotto and raspberry vinaigrette salad, ending with doughnut holes. Those were a surprise, 3 large dough balls served hot with 3 dipping sauces. Delicious!!!

Business dinner. Went to Red based on recommendations from two friends who frequent the downtown area.
Adam was our server and he was phenomenal! We all ordered steaks for dinner. One of the guys said that it was the best steak he ever had and another customer rated the restaurant as one of the top three meals he had in his life!
I’m certain that the meal was super expensive, but my customers were treated to a very special evening.
It was pretty loud in the restaurant, but I prefer that as opposed to a super quiet room.
Lots of options. Sides to share. Great time had by all! I will definitely return to this fine establishment. Great job by everyone who took care of us.

My brother's 50th birthday. He loves steakhouses and Red fit the bill perfectly. Very well balanced martinis to start. Fried calamari app was the right combo of tender flavorful squid in a crunchy exterior. Arugula salad was sublime! Really peppery fresh arugula in Cleveland in November, and the dressing let it shine! Steaks were cooked perfectly and matched the attentive server's description exactly. Red wines by the glass complemented the steaks and did not break the bank. One brother had cal cab, another a bordeaux, and the third a barbera d'alba. Generous pours meant we were all able to take a tour of some great wine regions for less than $50 total. We ate everything in sight and had no room for dessert. Thanks to the cheery hostesses too!

(YELP) Came here during restaurant week.

Our experience here was so-so. The food was good. We expected top quality steak given the ratings and price and it was very good. The lone choice for the restaurant week steak was filet medallions. They didn't ask me what temperature I wanted the steak. I normally prefer medium rare but they came back medium. Still, the quality was very good, although not my temperature of choice.

The service, unfortunately, was the worst part of our dining experience and likely the reason we will not come back and choose other options when we feel like spending money on a nice evening. When it came time to order our drinks, my wife asked for a virgin drink (she was pregnant), to which the waitress replied, "we don't have any virgin drinks". I mean I understand if they really don't have virgin cocktails but she should have responded nicer and maybe recommended something or asked my wife what juice she likes. I then told the waitress that I would like a cab, knowing there were many options, I was expecting a recommendation of some sort. She quickly replied "house cab, sounds good", then turned around and swiftly walked away. Very odd and maybe I can chalk it up to her not realizing I wanted a good cab recommendation and was willing to pay for a nice glass of wine. At this point we had the feeling like because we're ordering from the restaurant week menu, we were not wanted or looked like we had no money to spend.

Our desserts were brought out and our waitress didn't ask us if we wanted any coffee or additional drinks. My wife had to flag her down Midway through dessert to ask for coffee. She then forgot to bring the coffee until after she gave us our check. She comped the coffee which I guess was a nice gesture.

Red Steakhouse seems pretty pricey when it isn't restaurant week. We love to eat out and aren't afraid to pay for it. It was underwhelming when it came to service, which is a big deal breaker for us and why we won't be back.
