    Everything about The Red Door was perfect. We came in for my husband's birthday. Every staff member was attentive, especially our waiter Mario. We started with the beets and burrata appetizer, which was delicious. My husband had the surf and turf special and I had the lobster ravioli in a vodka tomato cream sauce. They were both amazing. During dinner the chef/owner Luciano Cibelli came out and walked around chatting with the customers. He was very friendly, answered questions, and talked about the food. Dessert was beyond words. The banana cream pie and chocolate lava cake were delectable, as were the after dinner drinks. Everything from the lovely music playing to the wonderful staff to the amazing food and drinks was exactly what we wanted. We will be back.

    The service was very slow to even take our drink order. Server seemed unsure about what he was doing wanted to take drink food order all at once. Chicken was very tough not tender at all. Ribs & brussel sprouts dish was mostly brussel sprouts. Won't return sorry!

    We enjoyed their special of the day, Chateaubriand with potatoes and bourbon demi-glace, and it was absolutely delicious! It was a full 20 oz. piece of meat thinly sliced and cooked to our liking. Also tried the Harvest Salad with strawberries, fresh radishes and pickled onions. Dessert was fabulous - we enjoyed their Banana Cream Pie along with Sticky Toffee Pudding. Both we highly recommend! Service was impeccable and we enjoyed conversation with our waiter, Jacob S.

    Among us we had a vegetarian dish, a chicken dish and 2 pasta dishes with salads and dessert. We wouldn't recommend the vegetarian nachos but everything else was excellent with good attention to detail. The owner/chef comes out to greet everyone and find out how you liked the food which was a nice touch.

    The food is phenomenal. I don’t normally go for Italian, but they got it right. Perfect portion sizes, every dish was craveable. I will definitely be back.

    This place is perfect, and we will definitely be back. I loved there was a gluten-free pasta option and the swordfish was heavenly. The owner was friendly and the waitstaff were superb. We highly recommend a trip when you are in the area.
