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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
