Red Lantern is unlike anything Foxwoods has ever seen before. With a capacity of 225 people, Red Lantern is modeled after its sister property in Boston, and features a redesigned open kitchen, full sushi counter and lounge area. Once again designed by the award-winning Peter Niemitz, the space also features 66 lanterns hanging overhead with the entrance marked by oversized, red ceremonial doors. Featuring a large leather, wraparound couch, high-back red club chairs, black tufted club chairs and acupuncture lamp statues throughout, Red Lantern Connecticut has the same feel so many have fallen in love with, in its Boston counterpart.

This experience was not the best. We’ve dined here many times and the flavor of the food has gone downhill. I’m not sure it’s the new cooks or what, but things are like night and day compared to our other visits. The manager was very apologetic and comped our food. Our waitress Sarah was great and accommodating.

The menu selection is lacking. The food that we did have was good but not worth $25-$30 a plate. The sushi selection is disappointing as well and mainly consists of tempura style rolls. Overall I would not recommend this restaurant due to the price and menu selection. the service was great but the food was average at best. I expected much more.

Started off very nice with apps & drinks. When our dinners arrived, mine was not among them. I had ordered a Fried Rice dish w/Pork. We brought it to their attention and still waited another 20 minutes after reminding them yet again.

The hostess could have been more welcoming; seemed bothered which was odd because we were one of the first customers there at opening.
The sushi was fantastic but the shrimp in the pu pu platter was chewy and tasted as if it had been frozen.

I highly recommend red lantern for any occasion. I had been once on a random quiet date night with my boyfriend. And then a second time for my birthday with 13 friends. We were accommodated last minute with our own room and a nice square table. Our waitress attended to our every need. The employees and management were exceptional. It made my experience and birthday the best ever!

Delicious food each time I have gone here... good service and this time we sat at a table overlooking the nightclub and got to hear the music the DJ was playing and watch people dancing below. I asked for special accommodations on my maki roll and they were able to provide.

I was disappointed in the knowledge of the employees. The hostess wasn't aware of the happy hour so she directed me to the endless sushi, which I didn't as want as much. The bartender didn't know what the ingredients were in one of the rolls I ordered and it ended up to be items I would never have ordered had I known. The manager seemed more interested in eating his dinner than making me feel like a valued guest. Won't be going back there.

This is one of the best Chinese restaurants in the area, at least our favorite and it didn’t disappoint.

They changed their menu and it's not nearly as good as it used to be 😢 The hot rock is still decent but they took away the sauces that used to come with it. The Steak with truffle fries is amazing. The service can be very slow on weekends.

Red Lantern is my favorite restaurant in the Foxwoods Casino resort. the food is always exceptional, the service is attentive, efficient and friendly, and the ambiance is extraordinary. If you are headed to Foxwoods for an event, make sure you stop in to Red Lantern.

Delicate meals with vibrant flavor. The second a dish is made it comes to your table. You can tell they put alot of effort in the presentation of the food and how it is made. Nothing was over salted or under spiced. Quality, non-garbage bottled beer available. Service was great, fast and attentive but not overbearing. Got the pork sliders app, the specialty shrimp maki and general tso's chicken, a couple beers, fried ice cream dessert. Obviously the only big negative here is the price. I don't think a General Tso's chicken dish should be $30+ but you bite the bullet and swallow that pill when you make a decision to eat at Foxwoods. Value aside, you'll have a great time here. The ambiance is great, bathrooms clean and place is a/c'd well.

The waitress we had made the experience seem very rushed, she didn’t have much of a personality. I ordered the Shrimp Tempura and it was scarce, I finished well before everyone and was still hungry and our waitress didn’t come over enough for me to be able to order more food.

Not worth it at all. The food at my local cheap Chinese place is way better! Lettuce wraps? More like chopped chicken in a random sauce. The food is super bland. But, if you like that, then go check it out. Not worth it at all.

I am giving this 2 star although food was decent. The lobster Rangoon’s were delicious! The reason for fair rating is due to service. We ordered dinner and I ordered sushi my husband ordered generals Tso chicken. They brought husbands food and forgot mine. Waited 10 min b 4 I got my dinner.

Food was delicious, nice atmosphere. Our complaint is that we ordered 2 $13.00 drinks but the waitress misunderstood the order and brought a much more expensive drink for one of us. The drink total was $58.00 for 2 drinks. We didn't even know until the bill came and when we complained there was no offer of remediation.

I always love coming here—I took my boyfriend here for his birthday, and we were at the restaurant for sushi happy hour ($5 select rolls). The food was great, service was great, and the mai tails were strong! Overall, excellent experience; this is one restaurant I always try to hit whenever I visit Foxwoods.
