Great to see the Red Door open again!.................
No other words but incredible! Chef personally came to table to see how we were enjoying our meal...very personable. Wait staff we very attentive and very accommodating even on the littlest request! It was nice to be out to support a local business, who clear puts all the love they have into their food. Fresh! From farm to table! Had mussels (incredible), large enough portion for two, arugula salad (perfect amount of ingredients), also shared, and the main was the lobster ravioli...which stole the show!!! It was DELICIOUS!!! if you haven’t been you must go!!!
The food was fantastic! A real neighbor hood gem! So glad they were back open for service. All rules were closely followed to adhere to guidelines for social distancing. Even with the make on the place had a positive vibe and I will definitely return!
It was such a great evening it was so nice to be able to have the first date night dinner since this whole quarantine the food was amazing the host and the waiters and the chef everyone was kind they were welcoming it was a great evening and I recommend it
Outstanding food, great service! A favorite place for us! We’re so glad Luciano & crew are open again!
Another visit to The Red Door!! Food five stars. Service five stars. Experience five stars plus. How can the chef/owner handle it? Every plate has his personal touch. You can order any item from the menu or up to a "let the chef surprise me", he always knows what to bring, and I mean "bring" as he always comes out to make sure that what you get is way above what you expected. The restaurant, the bar, the service, the food, the chef, the ............ will make The Red Door your home.
Another amazing meal! Great service and great food! The ribeye is always my favorite. Chef Luciano and his staff will make you feel like you are the only customer in the restaurant. The experience is like having your own personal chef as he is always attentive, always a gentleman, and always brings the most amazing food to your table. My favorite restaurant. Try it once and you will become a regular!!!!
Absolutely love The Red Door! Every choice is exceptional and incredibly flavorful. One of my many favorites is the 18 oz ribeye, which is outstanding, and I cannot resist the Carlsbad mussels with a very rich white wine and tomato broth. Sooo much flavor! Always a great experience with exceptional service and special attention to each table by Chef/Owner Luciano.
Luciano is the best! Always a great experience! Outstanding food and service. Our favorite place to which we return at least a couple of times each week.
The Red Door truly is the best in restaurant in San Diego. They combine incredibly sourced ingredients with phenomenal execution. Every meal I have had there is truly remarkable. Chef Luciano brings out the very best flavors in his treatment of the ingredients he masterfully chooses. I highly recommend you try the rib eye, the lamb shank, the day’s fish selection, and the scallops. Especially try the scallops. I have yet to find a place in San Diego that prepares scallops as perfect as The Red Door does.
The service is very attentive and always excellent as expected. It is always fun and appreciated that Chef Luciano comes out to greet the patrons and he always checks up to see how the dinner is. The bar side is a very fun venue to have your dinner as there usually is excellent live music.
It truly is a great pleasure to frequent this place. I just did the Michelin Star Challenge in London (25 stars in 6 days) and frequently found myself comparing many of the dishes to the dishes Chef Luciano prepares. I wouldn’t doubt that if the Michelin Guide awarded stars in San Diego, there would at least be one star (and probably more) hanging at The Red Door.
Cheers and happy eating!
great food! Conversation difficult: noisy.
The Red Door is always fantastic! When we are in town we try to get there once a week. The food is always delicious and the service is wonderful! All of the servers are very attentive but Kelsea is the best! Chef Luciano always makes us feel at home. Best restaurant in Mission Hills!
We were the only ones there as they need to update google and yelp that they’re open for brunch on Sat! Also they were out of several things. Odd experience but our waiter was very nice and attentive.
The food was amazing , the staff was friendly and the atmosphere was perfect for having a great meal and enjoying conversation with friends.
Our waiter Tony was excellent and accommodated diet restriction with a smile.
I like lunches at the Red door. The one thing I find irritating is that the gentleman who serves, always asks you "How are we doing?" That signifies he is included. Minor issue but is part of his patter.
Excellent place. Never disappoints. Chef is wonderful.
The aged ribeye with the best I’ve had, and nicely couple with the petite rosemary potatoes. The owner chef engaged us on a couple occasions. Very lovely place!
Escaping the cold and snow from Michigan, we felt a visit to San Diego was in order. Had a few recommendations, but depend on OpenTable for most of our experiences, and wanted to hit a good spot away from the downtown core. The Red Door was it. We found ourselves in a bustling European atmosphere. Our server, Mario, was very attentive. Excellent menu, without being overwhelming. We passed on appetizers in order to focus on a main plate. My wife ordered the scallops, which were seared, and finely prepared. I judge an Italian restaurant by its pasta, and The Red Door has an eclectic selection of house made pasta. I opted for the ravioli with tomato and burrata. Excellent. The chef and owner, Luciano, made the rounds of the dining room and chatting with him we learned that he has had worldwide experience. He obviously has dedication and pride in what he does. We ended our meal sharing a “sticky toffee” cake (no doubt a product of Luciano’s time in London) and espresso. We’ll return, because I want to try the beef Wellington, which I would have ordered if it wasn’t Friday and Lent.
Delicious food and great service!
