So good we're going back 2 days later!
Very slow service, my teriyaki chicken was horrible.
I said it’s an occasion - no one asked me anything.
Absolutely amazing! Dumpling promotion was worth it! Definitely will return soon.
when a restaurant is not to full I ask why they seat customers next to each other when other tables are available, This not just at the red Lantern it is all of the opentable dining we have done
Food was good but the waiting was awful.. booked a table a 8.30 the staff told us to wait a bit because they needed to set the table. They told us to go at the bar and that they would send someone once the table was ready.. Waited for thirty minutes and had to remind them I had a reservation because they obviously did not care..
terrible for a place that wants to be upscale !
Four of us had a very fine dinner at the Red Lantern on Saturday evening, 4/27/19. The food was terrific and the ambiance was beautiful if a just bit noisier than we'd hoped.
One very odd thing happened. One of our party had tea with her dinner and when it arrived the water in the teapot was tepid. She asked the waiter if she could get some hot water and the waiter said he would go get some. But about five minutes later he returned only to tell us the kitchen could not provide us with any water hotter than the barely lukewarm pot we had originally. What? A kitchen that can't provide hot water? This was quite unbelievable to all of us. When a restaurant kitchen can't boil hot water, what does that tell you? They couldn't use a microwave for a minute? Couldn't put a small pan on a stove for a couple minutes? The waiter did not seem to have an answer and he appeared to be just delivering a message from someone in the kitchen who couldn't be bothered.
Is this a horrible glitch in an other wise very nice dinner? No, of course not. But it was a very odd lapse in customer service that surprised us.
The Entrees n Sushi was really good. Service was a little slow. The worst part was the desert. I will never order desert again. The Manager was really nice to take it off our check.
It's overpriced Chinese food. there are nice places around where you can spend less and eat food of the same quality.
Wonderful ambiance and great food!!
Our group of 5 was seated right away. The waiter showed up promptly to fill our water glasses. However, after that, he kept us waiting to take orders and deliver beverages. Food was very good, but not really outstanding. The distance from the kitchen resulted in less-than piping hot items.
Bad service and very disappointed in food
The ambiance was fun but the service was so slow. Waited for ever for someone to talk our order then again waited forever for drinks to arrive.
I went to red lantern before attending a graduate ball for school and had an excellent dining experience. They sat us 30 minutes before the reservation at our request and we had excellent service. Food came out quick and was delicious, along with drinks. This was not my first time at Red Lantern and I will continue to recommend it. Thank you for a great dining experience !
Amazing service! Great atmosphere! We will most likely be back.
The staff and service was wonderful. The food and drinks were unpalatable and repulsive. The drinks were not being made properly and the food was bland and stomach turning.
I should have known when the menus were sticky & gross that this wasn’t going to be my finest meal...sushi tasted really funky, and the rest of our meal was subpar. No offense Red Lantern, but skip this one, you can find better in Boston.
Enjoyed it so much, we were seated in the back dining room no view of the dance floor, I would prefer that next time.
Really enjoyed red lantern. Sat at counter which made it fun, great variety of food, large portions, wonderful service
Awesome food, great ambiance, and a very cool place to invite people from out of town to show off just how cool the unique architecture is in the city.
Rolls were absolutely delicious and very fresh. We had rock shrimp, crab, sashimi, miso and hot and sour soup. Presentation was lovely. Overall very good experience... we would return.
We asked our waiter for drink recommendations and she recommended the fish bowl drink which once we got, we thought was wayyyy too sweet. We couldn't even take one sip. We didn't want to outwardly be THOSE customers who complain so we mentioned it many times that the drink was too sweet and that we can't drink it. It was $55. The waiter always changed the topic and seemed like she didn't want to have to deal with our unhappiness. Other than that, food was delicious but not necessarily worth the price. And the place itself is very aesthetic.
Way too much sauce on everything. Sushi covered in goo.
They changed the menu significantly, the current menu is horrible
This was our third visit and we do not plan to return. The food was exceptionally badly prepared and did not rise to the expectations that one might have for the pricing charged. Too bad. Such lost opportunity to capitalize on a great concept coupled with a unique setting. I wonder if Management periodically reassesses its recipes and how they are executed. I suppose patrons will go back to P F Chang where taste may not be exception but at least consistent.
Always a great time! Our favorite place to spend time with friends. Amazing food!
A group of 8 went. Ordered the sushi boat, drinks and some entrees.
we found a hair in one of the entrees.
Jen is THE BEST!!
Would recommend to friends, only if they're crazy rich.
Good atmosphere and decent food. The service could have been better but it was packed when we arrived.
The Vegetarian options could be made tasty and add more to the normal menu options, I did like their food presentation but not the taste (was too bland).
One of my favorite restaurants! Staff is really friendly and attentive. Amazing food and excellent experience as always!
Samir was the most amazing waiter, probably the best service I’ve ever had anywhere. He was attentive to our party of 10. He made sure the people with allergies were taken care of. Always made sure we had everything we need and more.
The food was great as were the drinks!
Everything was great, the food and the drinks. However, we were not notified ahead of time that the kitchen closes at 10:30. We called ahead and asked the earliest available reservation and they told us 10:30pm. The second we walked in the door, we were rushed and the staff was annoyed we were there. They told us to hurry up and order and that the kitchen would be closing. It makes no sense to take reservations for that late if the kitchen is closing at that time. I was dissappointed as it was my birthday and we were completely rushed at dinner.
Moved to the bar area. Most rude and obnoxious bar tender. Will not go back
Great food and awesome service. Definitely go back again.
Oh how i wish i remember my servers name, she was so aweaome. You can tell she knew the menue by heart. Me and my partner were sitting at the two top with the both and chair seating. The Rosie Roll was killer, and the pecking ravioli was to die for. Cant wait to go back!
Love the restaurant, food better than some other Asian-themed restaurants I’ve been to in Boston. Going back next week with a dozen friends!
Our service was amazing. I wish I got his name but, he was so attentive and answered menu questions flawlessly. The ambiance is the real reason we were initially attracted to the Red Lantern. After enjoying a Ginger Margarita I was sold! The dinner portions are insane so beware of too many rolls of sushi before entrees. Asian food is alway great the second day so I was excited to have a surplus to take home. I enjoyed a nice date night that Thursday and I’d gladly go back for more drinks and appetizers with girlfriends next time at the bar!
