red/bar brasserie Ratings and Reviews
The ambience is the same as its always been and that’s the highlight. The food is mediocre. It’s not inexpensive. Though the waiter was excellent, the owner is ungrateful and has no sense of customer service or gratitude, and moreover has an attitude. It was classic hearing him tell the people in front of us they were late for their seating, when they had to remind him that they were waiting for a table for 35 minutes. After we were forced to sit at the bar and order over-priced wine which had not even be poured they had the audacity to tell us we had to pay at the bar and couldn’t carry the balance over to the table. And that was after they tried to weasel out of our Opentable Reservation because they brilliantly unsuccessfully tried to confirm it with the wrong number and someone we don’t know who not surprisingly didn’t confirm it. If this restaurant were in the city it would have been out of business ages ago.
Red Bar is a neighborhood institution - always delivering a wonderful experience. The warm atmosphere and consistent quality of the food is worth coming back for. I always seem to be there early or late avoiding the crowds that Red Bar tends to attract and am happy each time. I also love that the chef cooks within the season changing up the menu to deliver a unique dining experience each time.
When you create a restaurant that works it just works or not Red Bar . From the amazing food to the awesome staff run by Glenn and Dawn you will leave their happy and full wanting to come back again and again and again...It’s a restaurant where you actually feel good when you leave
Red Bar is a place that honestly has been created without any flaws
On a Sunday evening, after the summer season is over, this is a perfect spot for a peaceful and delicious meal. You can appreciate the beauty of the dining room and, best of all, you can have a quiet conversation with table mates! The food and service are both very good, and post-season, there's a very reasonable prix fixe menu Sunday-Thursday. For those worrying about smaller portions, this doesn't seem to be the case. Both the salad I ordered for a starter and the main dish were more than ample. In fact, I struggled to finish the entree, perhaps because I filled up on the warm and excellent rolls with soft butter! Highly recommended, especially on week nights.
The waiter forgot my sister's appetizer and upon being informed when our entrees came out, he shrugged, whispered an apology, and left. The correct thing to do would've been to bring the appetizer when it came out and have it be on the house. My brother also ordered a sirloin but got a NY strip. The tuna appetizer is probably the best thing on the menu. The steak was cooked well, too, but the fish were average and the truffle chicken was not good at all. This was our third time there in maybe three or four years, but we won't be returning.
The food was just ok. Nothing to write home about. When they found out we were not drinking alcohol as my wife is pregnant the service declined. They out raw sage on the plate which any respectable chef would tell you is a no-no. They didn't even fry it. The short ribs could have been better if they did not burn the sauce which gave it a bitter taste. No valet parking. The best part was the desssert. The appetizers was lackwarming. The pasta was not fresh pasta or homemade pasta but rather from a box or bag. I'm not come here for the scene.
