New England lobster claw and knuckle meat with bacon, cream, potatoes and tomato
creamy cheese, shrimp, red onion
butternut squash puree, candied bacon
Management and service was kind and considerate. Scallops and chowder was absolutely fantastic.
We loved it! They accommodated our large group very well!
Super cute restaurant with great service! I had the butternut squash ravioli, it was delicious and was a generous portion. There were outdoor heaters for most of the outdoor eating areas that made it comfortable to be on the patio. Highly recommend this place!
Excellent food and service as always !! The noise level from Charlie’s kitchen next door was high but we had a wonderful evening in spite of it!
The restaurant was fairly busy but the service was still great. My scallop dish came out completely ice cold and my husband's fish and chips looked and tasted like it had been fried twice. The drinks were good.........
Delicious seafood. I had artichoke pasta and my husband had black ink pasta with mussels and scallops and shrimp. Plenty of outside seating.
We had high hopes but the food was pretty lackluster, especially for the price. The only vegan option was zucchini noodles with red sauce for $22. Two people in my group got the squid ink pasta which was okay. Served us crostini that was cold and hard as a rock. Another person got scallops, which came with a cold and bland side of puréed squash.
Great atmosphere and waitress was fabulous.
This is a beautiful restaurant in Harvard square with lots of outdoor seating. The service is superb and the food is wonderful, very New England. I entertained some out of town guests here and it was perfect.
Our luncheon was delicious and we felt comfortable with distance from other diners. We will return soon.
Food was excellent. Although our server was knew he was very attentive and took good care of us. The patio is lovely.
Indoor space is small and a little noisy . The food was okay not great. With the exception of the loaded fries . If you go and it’s nice out definitely sit outside .
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
Food was delicious and such a cute outdoor set up! Margarita flight was fun and
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.
