I had a great salad, after about 6 bites I noticed a huge hair stuck in and sound the bowl. They offered to replace it but was not interested at that point, YUCK! My husband had a mustard crusted chicken sandwich, it was soaking with old oil and tasted burnt and very bitter. He threw it away when we got home. The other person in our party had a fish sandwich and they thought it was good. $72 plus a $15 tip (wasn’t the waiters fault) was not worth it. They took my salad off the bill, but still was $72. We will not be back.
Tony rocked !
Thank you so much for complimenting a member of our team! Come again soon.
Excellent Easter brunch! Staff was fantastic and it was a very comfortable well-spaced setting. It was so nice to be going out again and this was a great spot to test your comfort level.
Hi Dan - thank you for the compliments and celebrating the holiday with us! So happy to read that you felt comfortable and enjoyed our restaurant. Best,
Good ambiance and nice staff! Wish we had been able to dine on the rooftop but we were a bit too early in the season. Will definitely go back :)
Our server Amanda was amazing! Food was great as always! We had the market steak, scallops, and Cali salad.
Thank you for your review! Great dinner choices. We appreciate the compliments on our team. We recommend trying Jimmy's Burger next time you stop in. All the best,
Food was fantastic, staff was knowledgeable accommodating, the environment was bright and clean, reminded me of an ocean resort. Highly recommend Scarlet as the best dining experience I had while visiting Redwing.
Thank you so much for your review and your recommendation! We appreciate the warm compliments. Hope you can visit us again soon. All the best,
As usual, we were warmly greeted when we arrived. The server was very gracious and attentive. The food was quite good. My only complaint is that the menu (for understandable reasons) is somewhat limited. Because we were seated next to a window, we had a wonderful view of the river.
Thank you for your comments! We appreciate your support during this time. Hope to see you again soon. Happy dining,
Good food, good service. Worth the experience.
Thank you for your support! Come again soon. Best,
My wife and I spent a night away from home at the St James hotel, and made a reservation to have dinner at Scarlet. Our server Erin was fantastic. She was friendly and informative. Attentive without hovering, and had a great personality as well. I started with their wild rice soup, which was amazing! We both ordered market offerings. My wife had scallops with risotto, and I had beef tenderloin with scalloped potatoes and green beans. Our entrees were brought to us by the executive chef Cory DuFour which we thought was a nice touch. Both our meals were perfectly prepared, flavorful, and wonderfully presented. We asked Erin to pass this on to the chef and a few minutes later he came back to our table to chat. We both greatly appreciated this personal touch, and were able to inquire about how the restaurant had done during covid. We would highly recommend stopping in to dine at Scarlet if ever in Red Wing. We will definitely be back very soon.
Thank you so much for your support, Ripley! We appreciate your detailed, kind review. Thank you for complimenting our team; they are some of the best and truly value the guest experience. Can't wait to see you return. Highly recommend stopping by this summer and trying out our patio. Safe travels and well wishes,
Only thing that was not so great
It took a lot of effort to get Our Order in and we were there for 3 hours
It was nice that one waitress took our picture
Next time we come we are going to try outside
Weather not warm and the patio was closed

We stay at the St. James Hotel about every 6-8 weeks and eat 3 meals in Scarlet. Again, on our recent visit, the food was spectacular and the service great. The chef at Scarlet is at the top of his game. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much for your thoughtful review, William! It was good to see you again. Thank you for coming back and visiting us every couple of months; we appreciate your support. See you again soon. Cheers and safe travels,
Very friendly, great service and the food was delicous!
Thank you for sharing your feedback! We appreciate it. Cheers to good food and good company!
We came for Valentine’s Day, and drove about an hour away. We have never been to scarlet kitchen, and were blown away by the food. Please give your compliments to the chef, we will definitely be back! Can’t wait to try out your patio this summer. Thank you for the great experience!! Can’t wait to be back.
Thank you for coming to visit us! We're so happy that the drive was worth the visit. You'll love the patio; we're hoping for good summer weather this year. We appreciate your feedback. Safe travels and come again soon! All the best,
The service was wonderful, attentive, friendly, but not overbearing. They did a great job considering COVID restrictions.
Thank you, Jennifer! All the best,
Engaging but respectfully distanced service. Excellent food. Timely service.

Delicious food made from local food sources. Healthy options. Great staff and atmosphere.
Thank you so much, Vicki! We appreciate the compliments. Come again soon!
Scarlet has really upped its game. The food, in a word, was exceptional. Amazing flavor in everything and great service. I've always loved the St. James and have spent a lot of time there over the past decade, but this trip had me blown away by the food. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough.
Hi Jim - we loved reading your review! Thank you for your kind feedback. Our culinary team is phenomenal and love what they do. We appreciate your recommendation. We can't wait for you to visit us again in the future! Happy dining,
My wife and I enjoyed a Valentine's weekend getaway at the St. James Hotel. Since the outside temperatures were subzero, we booked Saturday night dinner at the Scarlet Restaurant at the St. James. The $65 prix fixe menu was intriguing. Four courses with three choices in the first three each creative in description but so exceptional in execution by new Chef Cory. The champagne feta salad with roasted squash, pomegranate seeds and candied pecans was among the most balanced, flavorful salads we've ever eaten. On the second course, my wife shared her generous meat and cheese board and I shared with her my umami-rich sweet and spicy fried rice, a blend of crispy sweet potato pieces, bean sprouts, scallions, jalapeno, pickled fresnos, and cilantro seasoned with soy mayo and sesame seeds and topped with sweet Thai chili-seared pork belly. If that was the sole dish of the evening, I would have left satisfied! My third course cherry noir duck was a point-counterpoint of herb and garlic duck leg confit and medallions of duck breast herb oil seared over roasted brussel sprouts + bacon + white hominy bits sprinkled with a bourbon and black cherry gastrique. Again, one of the best dishes I've ever enjoyed. We ran a list of comparisons from a bistro in Paris to a restaurant in Denver, the prior best duck dish I'd had. My wife enjoyed a cauliflower puree, asparagus, charred tomato in a Calabrian chili sauce over handmade orecchiette pasta, topped with arugula and cracked pepper garnish. Fabulous! The fourth course dessert options were chocolate or vanilla, both creatively plated with the chocolate mousse drops on chocolate layers and ganache between piped meringue with cherries served under smoked glass hood. What fun! The drunk in love vanilla panna cotta with pomegranate seeds, poached peaches and red wine sauce was a grand finale. We envision this young chef's meteoric rise in regional cuisine!
Thank you so much for your thoughtful, detailed review, Stephen! Our team went above and beyond for Valentine's Day, highlighting their creativity and talent. We appreciate the compliments and hope you can visit us again soon to try our full menu. Safe travels and happy dining!
Tasty food and excellent service! Quiet atmosphere also.
Thank you for the review, Michelle! Hope you can visit us again soon. All the best,
Our server, Tony, was efficient and friendly. The food (steak salad and walleye sandwich) was beautifully presented. The hot tea came with fresh cream and honey. The background music was relaxing, perfect volume. Watching eagles fish on the Mississippi added to the experience. Our take-out shrimp alfredo dinner was also enjoyed immensely. And we felt very safe in spite of the Covid pandemic.
Hi Nita – Thank you for your review! We appreciate the compliments on the service, food, and atmosphere. Thanks for sharing your day with us and giving us a try. Your support means a lot during these crazy times! Come again soon. Safe travels,
Nice place, fun atmosphere.
We love our beautiful space. Thank you for stopping by and sharing your experience. Cheers!
My husband and I ate here for our wedding anniversary. The food was amazing and the waitress was the best! She even remembered my drink order from the night before.
Thank you for celebrating your special occasion at Scarlet! We appreciate the kind feedback and the compliments. Our team knows how to create memorable experiences. Happy anniversary! Come again soon when we reopen the patio this spring/summer! Sincerely,
Thank you so much! Come again soon,
Had 3 great meals here in 2 days. The chef know what he is doing, and service is great. Highly recommended!
We appreciate your recommendation, William! Thank you so much for your feedback. Our team is phenomenal. Happy dining,
Exceeded all expectations. Made staying in the hotel that much more magical
Happy to hear Andrew! Thank you for stopping by and giving us a try. Come again soon. All the best,
The atmosphere & decor were light & airy. Water view which is nice too. I look forward to coming back in the warmer months to sit outside & enjoy the view. The service was average, we had to go up to bar for a soda refill. I think they were short staffed because of Covid-19. They also stop serving breakfast @11:00 when check out from hotel is @11:00. That was disappointing too.The food was very good & we felt the prices were reasonable.
We appreciate your feedback, Loralee! We're eager for spring and summer to come so we can reopen the patio. We'd think you would enjoy the space. Check-out for the St. James is at noon. We hope you can stop by and visit us again soon. Safe travels,
Excellent ambiance and service. Good drinks and meal, but chef’s specials priced a bit high in my opinion, love the remodel!
Hi Judy! Thank you so much for your feedback. We appreciate your warm comments and support. Come visit us this summer when our patio is open! Happy dining,
The food was very good. The bartender/server was very good also
Thank you, diner! Cheers!
Exceptional service, management, food, and selection of cocktails. Would highly recommend and can’t wait to go back.
Thank you so much! We appreciate the warm compliments. Come again!
