    We made reservations for dinner to celebrate our Anniversary and had a great time. We got a semi-circle booth which felt romantic. We were highly impressed by the service and the food was delicious. We ordered the shrimp tacos for an appetizer We like to pick out 2 entrees we both like and split them so we can try more food. We decided on the burger and the pasta of the day. The server picked up on this without us telling her and brought out 4 plates for 2 entrees already halved so we didn’t have to do it ourselves at the table. We didn’t have to wait long for drinks and the food came out fast but not too fast to where we felt rushed. We would definitely recommend Red Rabbit and will be back to try more dishes.

    Made reservations for the patio. We arrived and it was dead and she asked if we had a reservation we said yes and she sat us on their back patio. Alone, no music at first and no tv on. Very different then inside. It was happy hour, but the happy hour menu was the same cost as the regular menu. We found 1 item .25 cents cheaper then the regular menu. I just wasn’t over all impressed. Food was ok.

    Cocktail drinks were very good and food was just as memorable. The Bolognese I thought would be standard and to my surprise was very good. Our chef friend was also dining with us and indicated how unbelievably good it was. Other great dishes we enjoyed were the falafel fritters and fish sandwich. A must try place. overall a very good evening!

    We chose Red Rabbit for my wife's birthday dinner. I ordered flowers to be at the table, and Amanda K took excellent care of that. I've reviewed Red Rabbit before and gushed over Amanda's service. If she isn't the best server we've ever had anywhere, she is certainly awfully close to the top. She is very knowledgeable, personable, professional, and efficient. She makes us feel at home. Additionally, my wife asked a question about the source of pork for the osso buco, and Amanda was able to obtain that information for her, which made my wife very happy (and me as well, at least potentially). Besides all that, we just love the restaurant. It has a great atmosphere, and the food is really excellent. It is a fun place to be.

    Met four friends for dinner and drinks right before happy hour ended. Reserved an outdoor table. The appetizers, food and drinks were all delicious. I can’t remember the name of my drink - made with rye and orange bitters - but it was awesome. I also had the brussels skewers and the bolognese. All were worth returning for.

    The service was good and the staff were nice and efficient. However, the food was terrible. We were there for brunch, and the quality of food was disappointing and upsetting. The meal for both people included potatoes, which were weirdly still firm and boiled only. There was no crisp or flavor to them at all, and definitely not what you expect from breakfast potatoes. There was almost no meat in the hangover hash, and the hollandaise sauce tasted mostly like melted butter. I didn’t have much of the expected eggy creaminess. So if you want to pay $17 for unseasoned boiled potato cubes covered in butter, this is your place. Otherwise I suggest you go elsewhere.

    Always great food & ambiance here. We love to dine al fresco, and the heaters on the front covered patio make it very comfortable to do in the winter. The craft cocktails are always a treat. We started with the Krakow Salt Mine (vodka, apple cider, lemon, salt, cocktail syrup, ginger beer) and the the Sage Cocktail (gin, lemon, pineapple gum, fresh sage, absinthe) - both were delicious! I ordered the Tofino Salmon with sage pesto, which was perfection, and The hubs raved about the Bolognese. We really enjoyed our evening out!

    Great service from beginning to end. Food wonderful, just like the “old days” pre-pandemic, which is rare these days. So many of our beloved favorite dining spots are in the throes of change and have not regained their identities. This felt like a true “Welcome Back,” in every way. Thank you for having a host at the podium who has the skill and authority to take care of guest experience. She was GREAT. Thank you to our server who was tip top in every way as well. The kitchen put out high quality food and the Team made sure we all got served at the same time. All this whole course correcting for a very large group crowding our table. It may sound weird, but this dining experience was for me, concrete evidence that we can heal, recover and get back to being our best selves in how we show up.

    Great food, my chicken was done perfectly and my husband had great pasta. The service was great as well. I tend to prefer a quieter restaurant, so the noise level was a bit high for my taste, but that seems to be there norm anymore. The menu is limited in size, would perhaps have preferred more options as well. It is very vegan/vegetarian friendly which is not important to me, but can be difficult for those that have dietary preferences, so would be excellent for them.

    We could not have been more impressed. Finding a parking space right out front boded well. The restaurant space is wonderful, with plenty of room between tables. Our server, Amanda, was exactly what one would wish for - extremely knowledgeable, exactly the right level of attentiveness (no hovering), perfectly friendly and personable, and very efficient and helpful. She should be cloned. All of the food was marvelous. My wife had the pork osso buco (after verifying it had no ingredients that would kick her allergies into gear), and I can verify it was wonderful. Our daughter had the Himalayan bricked chicken, and I had the salmon. All were excellent. The drink specials were excellent, as was the dessert. We loved it and have placed it at the top of our favorites list.

    Good crowd and the food was amazing and the portions are little on small side if you're really hungry. Otherwise perfect balance of sauce on the eggplant dish. Service was a little lacking on refills but I guess that comes from not adding drinks to the dinner.

    We had walked by the Red Rabbit many times and not gone in, but we decided to give them a try. Made a reservation. When we arrived, our table was ready for us. Excellent and attentive service. The martini was perfect, and the food was amazing. My husband had the Osso Buco and it was excellent. I had the Eggplant, and every bite was bursting with interesting flavors. We also had the Fungi Frites as a starter and they were so crunchy and flavorful we thought about ordering more. The wait staff was really top notch and our server took great care of us. 10 stars and we will be back.

    Honestly came here based off reviews and it was AWFUL! the food was undercooked and not even tasty at all, neither were the drinks. The tab was $80 and I took one sip of my drink and ate two bites of food. This was one time I can say the reviews steered me wrong and I will never be returning to Red Rabbit.
