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.

The food and service was excellent except green beans seemed extra salty and we couldn’t finish them. The rest was excellent. It felt like we had an air conditioner blowing on us and we had to eat with our coats on.

We always end up having Taylor as our waitress. Great service , Great Personality & very knowledgeable. When I do get to see my parents we love to go to Red Latern & can’t thank Taylor enough for making the experience always enjoyable.

I've been to the Red Lantern several times and always enjoy it. The Sushi is solid and they have some great hot dishes as well. I highly recommend the boneless spare ribs. While the app has gotten smaller over the years, they are still melt in your mouth ribs. Typically, the service is very good. Unfortunately, on my last visit (NYE 2018) our server was a little slow and not overly attentive. As expected it was busy (being the holiday) but I've been in on other very busy nights and still got great service. The drinks are pricey but good. They make a great Espresso Martini. I always get one for desert. One caution, the place can get loud. If your looking for quiet dining on a busy night this isn't it!! If you looking for a fun, up-beat, party atmosphere this is the place for you. All and all, I recommend the restaurant and will be back in the future.

My husband and I had a 9pm reservation which we arrived early for on Christmas Eve. It took 10 minutes for anyone to come over. Then we asked nicely to be relocated away from a table that was a small 2 top against a wall we were told that the other tables were reserved. Needless to say in the half hour it took the restaurant to close no one else arrived. It left a very sour note for our evening for the amount of money we spent to not have been able to enjoy our meal with elbow room along with having the server who watered us give us massive attitude. To top it off our server argued with my husband because he ordered salmon roe sushi and that he received it in a lemon shell and that’s how they always do it. Which if we’re the case don’t list it under the sushi option of the menu then... O also ordered a traditional lychee martini and was told it was not a problem and got the menu martini with cherry vodka.

Overall not worth the amount of money you’d spend. Go to a steak house instead

My husband and I love this place. Unfortunately they changed one of our favorite appetizers (Chicken lettuce wrap) and isn't quite the same presentation and flavor that we used to enjoy. The rest of the menu is still great.

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!

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.

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.
