New England lobster claw and knuckle meat with bacon, cream, potatoes and tomato
Whole Steamed Lobster
New England style steamed lobster served with drawn butter, coleslaw and golden fries
butternut squash puree, candied bacon
We had grilled octopus to start (wanted to try it, wasn’t a fan but that could be because we both just aren’t going to be fans of grilled octopus no matter how it’s served), fish and chips, and the scallops. The fish and chips were GREAT. The scallops were sandy and nothing special.
The food was delicious. Cal Imari is made to perfection. The lobster roll is to die for. Highly recommend this place for a unique experience!
Great food. Great service
We ended up being quite early for our reservation, but they were not too busy and worked us in early! My husband and I had the pork tacos and the swordfish and both meals were delicious!
Service was exceptional, food and drinks outstanding! Atmosphere was cozy and relaxing on the patio. Definitely will recommend this to fire and hope to be back!
Definitely in the go back list.
We were served room temperature water tasted like tap water. Oysters seem spoiled or so. Didn’t look appetizing, everything was so overpriced and didn’t seem worth the bill. My seafood pasta did not include the whole lobster like the picture and it seemed to have a soupy liquid at the bottom of it but the pasta itself was not cooked well, curly like ramen and dry. the experience really changed our expectations for the rest of the night :(
Had a great time. Excellent food. Service was attentive but less family with the food/menu.
Very nice place but just for drinks.
We had a platter of seafood couldn’t finish it was full of chewy octopus and the rest was not good quality
Fantastic food and ambience with beautiful outdoor dining. Inexplicably, given the quality of the food, the wine was served undrinkably warm...
Absolutely loved our experience at The Red Table! 10/10 recommend!
Great food and delightful experience!
Great place! Best lobster roll and the swordfish was perfect. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff. And Sangria drink special was delicious. Will definitely go back!
Fun place. Excellent drinks! Seafood pasta was wonderful!!!
Very special place.
For a cozy, delicious meal, The Red House comes through big time.
Excellent appetizers in big shareable portions. Fun original cocktails. Intimate space and great outdoor dining.
The food at Red House has become really superb. I had the swordfish and my partner had the scallops. Both were excellent. The tables are now farther apart, no longer jammed uncomfortably together as they were before Covid. In other words, Red House has gone from good to outstanding.
Fresh seafood and other options. The wait staff was extremely friendly, and the ambiance was very nice. Perfect for a nice summer dinner! A little bit pricey but everything was delicious.
The Red House is an old standard and we always enjoy our visits. We don't expect gourmet food, but the porch is a great spot to share with friends. Summer is so short in New England, and The Red House allows us to enjoy it. Like many restaurants, service can be slow due to the difficulties finding staff, but the staff is friendly, knows the menu items and works to deliver food in a timely way. Have patience, and you'll enjoy the experience. We'll return.
I was surprised that it was no longer a very good Italian restaurant, but a so-so fish place. We ate outside, but the inside lacked the charm of previous incarnation
Great food, friendly service. Noise level was very high. It was hard to hear conversation.
What a great time! The atmosphere was amazing! Service was phenomenal ! The oysters were perfect.
Amazing lobster rolls and great drinks
Great Lobster rolls and great drinks. Fun location.
The manager was so kind! We asked to move outside as we were seated in a room with a noisy crowd and they accommodated right away. Food was great. Drinks a bit pricey. We will definitely be back!
Drinks were phenomenal and the atmosphere is fun but the service and food were terrible. I ordered a ribeye and it was so dry I ate 3 bites and got rid of the rest. You’d think when they came to clear the table they’d ask why I didn’t eat my food, but nothing. Took forever to find the waitress whenever something was needed and they charged me full price including the steak I didn’t eat. There are many more restaurants in the area I suggest you choose one of those.
This was an enjoyable experience. The food was great. The service pretty good considering all restaurants are currently short staffed.
the food was delicious, service was spotless and the drinks were great! we had oysters, the original lobster roll and the margarita flight, all excellent! we sat on the patio and it was a really nice quiet ambiance. really nice time overall
Excellent & pleasant service - My Fish & Chips GREAT - wife had a very nice Caesar Salad & Fried Octopus prepared to perfection. Creme Brûlée was as good as it gets. Simply a truly enjoyable dining experience☹️
beautiful and delicious cocktails, lovely street-side ambience, and a grilled octopus that you should always order
So cozy sitting by the fire in July!
The server was so friendly and helpful
Interesting drink menu and the shrimp linguine was perfection
Pleasant Harvard Square ambiance. Excellent seafood lunch--I had swordfish with basil pesto and asparagus, and my guest had scallops. Outside dining pleasant. Only complaint--No coffee available!
We ate on the patio with our 2 small dogs. It was a lovely day. The staff was very professional and friendly. We started with the guacamole and oysters from the raw bar. Both were excellent. My husband and I had the fish and chips and our son had the salmon. All were absolutely fabulous.
Flavor was there, but food came out cold. Oysters came out full of shell and ice had fully melted. However, management was professional in addressing situation.
Waitress was nice! Food was absolutely terrible! Will not be going back! Watermelon salad was bad.. watermelon was soggy, no mint or almonds were on the dish, but were listed as main ingredients. Coconut shrimp came with 5 small shrimp and was not split-able between 2 people and definitely not worth the price.. I will not be going back and would not recommend featuring this restaurant on your platform!
Was pretty disappointed in the mussels meal. Was very bland. I’ve had this kinda meal at other places so I do know what good mussels are like. Also even after asking specifically if they had the corn and roast potatoes sides like the menu said and was told yes they did, just as my meal arrived I was told they were actually out of the potatoes then was told they’d sub it for fries which I actually didn’t want. I asked if they could make it a side salad instead but they said no which I thought was a bit ridiculous considering. Honestly would’ve gotten a different meal if I had been told beforehand. My friend also didn’t love his salmon. So for the price it was a waste.
This restaurant used to be excellent, but the new menu is disappointing, and the prices have gone up quite a bit.
Cocktails were fresh and balanced - only regret is not being able to try them all.
