First we found a Hair in our lomein and normally I’d think an establishment would comp something. They didn’t, then the seat i sat in kept getting dripped on I assume from the ac so my shirt was wet the entire night. Management needs to do better

Nice space, mediocre food and menu. Standard entrees were limited. Kung Pow shrimp was tasteless. Special were better, good whole baked fish, moo-sho duck was flavorful.

Our server had an air of arrogance. We came here instead of going to Myers and Chang as we couldn’t get an early evening reservation there. Red Lantern was ranked well for Asian restaurants in Boston. Food was good, not great, but our server was somewhat pompous and misleading about the dishes. Sorry we didn’t wait and go to Myers and Chang.

The food was splendid. The music was matching the mood, and the overall ambience. It was, however, very crowded, as it seems to be constantly. The service took time and was not always available. The door usher was a bit rude. When I asked him where I can get an extra pair of chopsticks, he replied rudely to go ask my server, who was out of sight serving other tables.
The food was really nice though. The cocktails were very nice.

I have been to red lantern several times and I have always had a great experience. My boyfriend and I like to go there on Tuesday nights for the unlimited sushi. We went last night and did not have a good experience. Our server Armani took 10 minutes to come to our table initially. He was very slow throughout our dining experience and we were constantly just sitting there waiting for him to come back for the next round of sushi. He was not knowledgeable about the menu and did not come to check on us while we were eating. I would not recommend him as a waiter and suggest making sure all employees are fully trained and attentive.

After a very busy day I just wanted a nice meal before crashing. The Miso Soup was delicious as was a chicken skewer dish mounted on pineapple...A dragon roll and Salmon dish were to die for... tasty...cooked to perfection...and the manager stopped by (Mr Hagan) to check on our meal and service...
Great Restaurant

I have been here several times and I'm thrilled they now have gluten-free options indicated on the menu. Our waitress was great about helping me navigate this RE the specials as well. They didn't have the type of drink I wanted, so she brought me one and offered (without any issue) to take it back if I didn't like it. We went on the earlier side so it was quieter. I had forgotten that valet parking is $21 (!) and so would have parked on the bridge to save the money. The only downside I can say is that at some point a manager-type walked up to us and asked strangely worded questions as if he was checking up on the waitstaff. They weren't only leading questions, ala "does everything taste good?" but he worded it so oddly that my date and I looked at each other quizzically to try and interpret what he wanted! The waitstaff were doing great -- not sure what's up RE the management! LOL.

It was exactly the Friday night atmosphere we needed. With a party vibe / dj and a young outgoing crowd. We were three guys after a business conference. All lgbt. Very friendly and tasty food.

This place is normally fine. Portions are decent sized. There's a gluten free menu. However there were so many children this night screaming it was hard to hear the person right across from. I normally see no children, but there were toddlers to preteens here. It was quite unusual, and the noise was not particularly pleasant.
