The people Red attracted, they were the inspiration. The patrons of a wine boutique turned out to be people who were open to the finer experiences.

What a pleasure to fulfill their interests in fine food, good company and quality service. In rising to those requirements we found Red had become a restaurant, unique in its focus on the pleasure of an evening.

Wine was the starting point. Beyond the snobbery that once surrounded wine in America, Red let’s you explore, enjoy and fulfill your interest, your own way, using a serving instrument that’s unique to our region.

Please consider this your own invitation to join us for an evening soon.

How does this restaurant get such high reviews? When we walked into Red we were very impressed, the decor and ambiance looked like it would be a fun evening. And I must say the food when we got it was very good. But the poor service (it took 2 1/2 hours to actually complete our dinner. It is a small restaurant so I have no idea why our dishes took so long. And most of them were cold?? I don't think I'll return here for awhile, maybe they need to straighten things out. With so many worthy restaurants in Blufton and HH island, I can be picky

What a great place! The wine is served 3 ways: you can grab a bottle off the wall (7 minutes and your white is chilled), you can purchase by the glass or you can load a wine card with $. The card allows you to use the wine dispensers where you can choose a tasting amount, a small glass or large. They also have a charturie board appetizer where you can choose different cheese options. Loved the extra level of interest their model adds to a typical dinner date. Service is outstanding!

This is a wine boutique that has several wines on tap for do-it-yourself tasting in 2,4, or 6 oz pours. You can also shop their extensive inventory of bottles and purchase bottles or glasses of these. The food options are somewhat limited, but this is not necessarily a bad thing. What they do offer is well-prepared and presented. That said, the focus here seems to be on wine.

We had a fabulous evening with a great wine selection, incredible food and the acoustic guitar music was super, not too loud that you could not have a conversation but also you could enjoy every 70's song!

Just dropped in for some wine and cheese with friends. Bought a wine card and used it to taste various wines from their wine dispensers. This is a great concept for tasting a lot of wines you wouldn't normally get to taste. Ordered some cheese plates and their baked brie to go with the wine. Had previously eaten full meals here from their dinner menu and it was great.

Overall excellent! Special feature is the nitrogen powered collection of about 30 wines set up for sipping or drinking using an in house charge card! The chef visits each table weather for lunch or dinner to check on the meals. A giant bowl of mussels for $14 is outstanding!

The wine selection is great. Service is friendly. You can buy a card and taste a number of wines from their dispensers. Also, lots of wine by the bottle displayed on the wall. The special of the night was paella and it was outstanding. Will be back soon.

Very nice restaurant in the Dollar Tree strip mall. Quite small. Limited but very good menu. Chef came out and asked how everything was. Cool concept of wine tasting, though I just went with a glass instead of the $20 card where you can taste various wines! Loved the singer/guitarist. Not too loud. Played soft rock.

This was a 1st time dining at The Red + had a great dinner.
There was a large selection of wine by the glass but we chose a bottle displayed on the racks on wall around the dining area. Most wines were unpriced but eventually was told the cost.
I had the seared shrimp + crab served in an avocado which was delicious.
My main course was the Scottish salmon over mushrooms + a grilled artichoke which was cooked perfectly.
Dessert was a bourbon pecan pie that was very large but great.
Didn’t realize it was for two but I’ll enjoy it for a few nights.
The chef, Heath Prosser spoke to us for awhile + was interesting to talk with.
The waitress were knowledgeable + friendly.

I am trying to think of another word that is better than OUTSTANDING. Chef Heath, along with his excellent staff--Gerry, our hostess, and Christie, our server--offers a very professional service and an authentic ambiance, amounting to a total dining experience. The delightful dinner entrees will make anyone happy, especially when accompanied by one of the fine suggested wine choices--a superb concept! While enjoying your meal, listening to the soothing music provided by Armand DeMille will only add to your contentment. Forget your diet and treat yourself to an array of elegantly prepared desserts.

Now, back to that word--OUTSTANDING. I still cannot think of a better word to describe this FANTASTIC restaurant. I will return soon and make another attempt!

This is the third time we have eaten at Red, and the food and service have been outstanding every time. We went with friends for dinner on Thursday night, when there was a singer on a guitar. While we enjoyed the music, and the singer was very good and friendly, going to each table to ask for requests, the restaurant is small making it difficult to carry on a conversation during the performance. If the performer's sound level could be reduced, it would be ideal. Regardless, we will return for the food.

Great little place that you’d pass by if you didn’t know about it. Excellent food- try the lamb. The chef is from New Zealand and it’s fantastic. You can buy a bottle of wine off their wine wall to have with dinner. Check this place out. It won’t disappoint!

This is becoming a favorite dining spot. Always have a large selection of wines. In addition, one can sample any number of wines in their various stations, by using their wine card. Always a lot of fun. While the menu is not extensive, the selections change every few months, and even the old favorites are changed up for variety. The food is always good and presentation is good. The staff are quite friendly and down to earth.

We had an excellent experience with The Red. Started off with our server, Laura. She was fantastic throughout. The food was excellent. My wife had the Veal Chop special and I had the seared salmon. Both dishes were superb. We highly recommend this restaurant and we will be back.

Service here is excellent, and the wine machines are a fun way to try different wines. The food, however, was pricey and flavorless. I had the beef short ribs in a bread bowl - It was one large short rib on top of a roll which it dwarfed. Really strange - Why call it a bread bowl?? The short rib was very tender, but devoid of flavor. My husband had lamb which he ordered medium - It was well-done, and also flavorless. He said it was one of the worst lamb dishes he's ever had. It was $36.00. Our dinner companions had the veal special and salmon. The veal was reportedly tough and tasteless. The salmon was cooked medium, as ordered, and reportedly tasted good, so the only meal out of the 4 that was acceptable. The bill was over $200.00 for 4 meals, wine and bruschetta appetizer that was very good. We will not return - There are too many choices in this area to settle for expensive, flavorless cuisine.

First time here, but not the last.
Great service and food and spectacular wines. You can order a nice steak and a $1500 bottle of 2013 Harlan Estate. Not many places in Bluffton have either.

Go and enjoy. We loved it (and did not order the Harlan).
