Delicious food! My husband and I both loved our meals and shared appetizer and salad. The prices are a bit high, but to be expected at a casino restaurant. Very cool atmosphere as well.

Food was good, not exceptional, especially for the price. Service was friendly and prompt. Lighting was a little too dark.

The restaurant is really nice, the waitstaff are incredible- everyone that waited on us were attentive and fun and professional. They were the best part of the experience. Hands down they employ an A+ group of servers and bar staff. If only the food adequately represented the high standards the staff put forward. They charge top dollar for sushi rolls but they drowned both of mine in sriracha- it was all you could taste. Cold sriracha. I couldn’t get it off the roll. It wasn’t

The special apps, the drinks, and the rolls were all delightful. The Chefs Special Sashimi and the Mango Cheesecake were both misses. The couple of the Sashimi tasted and smelled not fresh, when we mentioned to our server about this (we didn't finish those pieces) we explained the issue and her response was "oh well those are just the type of fish (mackerel and albacore tuna). Those are both white fish, and not sushi/sashimi grade, I mentioned this to her and suggested that chef pick new options going forward. The Mango cheesecake came covered in chocolate sauce and strawberries that over powered and masked the taste of the cheesecake. The service was very baseline. She seemed more interested in getting us out the door so she could leave. (We came in after a concert. Arriving at 10PM) Finally there is a club attached to the restaurant (a fake wall separates the 2 spaces) and the house music which I liked, was turned up really loud at 10:30PM making conversation difficult. We will likely not return to the Red Lantern on future Foxwood visits and opt for one of the many other food choices.

Only reason a fair is because the manager was rude and not accommodating, made reservation for high top for 2 at 5, there were many choices but he would only put us right at entrance way. Other tables were open for hour.

We had a 5pm reservation only to arrive and find the restaurant doors still closed. They opened late and had to set up line management outside before bringing in the many patrons waiting outside. That being said we had a great meal with an absolutey outstanding server. Will dine there again.

Overall great service from wait staff. Had to wait about 20 minutes for a reservation with a reason that the table needed to be cleared, but the table they seated us at was clean and set when we we checked in. Food was great. Waitress was great, but small table with multiple people and shared dishes and no one bussed the empty glasses or dishes until after the meal, making things congested.

Red Lantern was very good on food quality and prompt service! Really liked the lettuce wraps! The tuna maki rolls were also very good! We also had Drunken Noodles main dish, very tasty! I wish they had more menu options though. Overall very good experience!

The lighting was too dim/dark..they gave my husband the wrong food...my carrots in the fried rice were crunchy,my husband bit one of the lobster Rangoon and the cream cheese filling was still cold and they forgot to make one of my appetizers so I never ate it..overall just a bad experience and I was upset because this was my husband's birthday and he had never been there before...my daughter and I have been there before and enjoyed it very much..I think it went downhill....107$ and it was worse than what my 13 year could whip up in the kitchen...Sad to say I don't think I'll give this place another chance...

Too Large Portions, quality lacking.
Tough meat, smallish shrimp, flavorless fried rice, $23.00 !
No finesse in cleaning tables, or in delivery.

Booked a “high top” for six people and upon arrival was told those are only available for parties of eight. Hmmmm
We were sat at a table that had three regular chairs and then a very old gross couch for three people on the opposite side. So low I could barely put my elbows on the table much less eat or sit comfortably. Asked to be reseated and told there were no other options. Very disappointing! Thankfully the food, service, and friends we were there with made up for the extremely uncomfortable Seating!

The food was very salty and too spicy to consume. The edamame was covered in salt and we couldn’t get passed 2 bites of the shrimp lettuce wraps. They had ghost peppers in the sauce which was not listed on the menu. The server put in an item incorrectly and forgot to remove it from the bill which isn’t a big deal, but on top of the inedible food, the cost was just insane. The bathrooms are SO DARK, like something out of a horror film. I did not feel comfortable as a woman to go in there alone.

The hostess was very nice but seemed stressed and under trained, our waitress was good but very busy. we had appetizers and entrees , we all felt that the sushi rolls and dumplings were excellent but the main courses were nothing special. There is a nightclub below the restaurant and there was a constant parade of people passing our table to go downstairs to the club and the music was very loud. it just wasn't worth the money

We had a new waitress and was very disappointed. We had to basically clear our own plates. We got cashed out but wanted to get desert. So had to order it separately.

Alec and Jillian are the best! I had requested either but not sure the hostess saw our request.

I won’t say the name of the person that served us as she needs training but this very painful. We had been there MANY times and this was one the worst visits.

Bring back some of your older menu items. Hot rock and chicken lettuce wraps to start. It’s time.

The service, food and atmosphere were excellent. The only thing was that there was a musty smell. I’m not sure if the bus person used a stinky rag to clean the table or something was in the air. Not good.
