About Red Lantern CT

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.

We had a reservation for a Saturday at 6pm. Upon arriving, the restaurant was pretty empty however we were seated at a small table in front of a huge column. There were plenty of other seats open so we asked for a different table. We were then seated next to the kitchen entrance . Really?! My boyfriend took the glass in front of him and flipped it right side up. As he did that, the glass was noticeably stuck to the table. Gross! Our food was average at best. He had a chicken stir fry which lacked seasoning. My sushi was barely edible. The rice tasted stale/old. Needless to say, we will never eat there again.

Great location for dinner prior to going to Shrine Night club. Being that we had tickets for the New Years party at Shrine the restaurant manager personally escorted us into the night club.

Not nearly as good as the Boston location. Shrimp pad thai tasted nothing like pad thai but more noodles with sweet and sour sauce. Beef and broccoli had 4 pieces of beef and 100 pieces of broccoli. D+ on food.

BE FOREWARNED! I made a reservation ahead of time because we knew we were attending a show on a Friday night before a show, so it would be packed. What we didn’t know, is that it would be one mid-step after another.

Pros:
-Steak Teriyaki Noodles were fabulous
(This is unfortunately my only pro)

Cons:
-Arrived 15 minutes before our reservation. Watched others get walked right to their tables. We were told to wait. Watched others get seated. Didn’t get seated until 15 minutes after our reservation time. After they realized they forgot about us.
-We were seated on the “Shrine” side of the restaurant. Apparently this meant we got to listen to techno music and watch flashing lights for our entire dinner. Please note, we had an 8:30 dinner reservation. At no point were we asked if this was ok. I couldn’t talk to my date because he couldn’t hear me.
- Our waiter didn’t write our order down. Because of this, he forgot to put in our appetizer.
- Our entrees took 50 minutes to arrive. We watched everyone around us get appetizers and entrees while we sat and waited.

Conclusion: We will not return. Poor front desk staff, bad wait staff, ok food, horrible non-restaurant atmosphere (think extremely loud music banging in your ears non stop)

The manager greeting us was somewhat rude. They placed us in a corner booth which was nice. However, it was freezing and everyone that had one was wearing a coat. The menus were worn and dirty. The food was rushed and the timing off. My pad Thai was terrible, worst I have ever had. My husbands tuna steak was good. The best thing was the cheesecake egg rolls for dessert. Nothing about this meal was worth the $200 check. We will never go back.

This was our second visit to Red Lantern and it didn’t disappoint! I’d highly recommend the spicy tuna on crispy rice—yum!!! The tuna poke was great and fresh. We also loved the beef buns. Food and service were great. We’ll be back next time we go to Foxwoods.

While the menu was pricey the sushi we ordered was absolutely amazing!! I had ordered a miso soup and my boyfriend ordered lettuce wraps for an app. Then for a meal we split 2 roles of sushi that were $17/each, but probably the best sushi we have ever had. We decided to get an order of fried rice to split as well. The fried rice as made to order so they were able to accommodate to my food allergy to eggs. I would have liked to order noodles on the side opposed to rice but an order of veggie lo mein was $24 YIKES. Absolutely more pricey than your average upscale Asian restaurant, but if you are going to splurge, spurge on the sushi.

I found the Red Latern to be a bit tired and dirty. The place needs a good dusting. The Red Laterns hanging from the ceiling and the speakers and wires over the dance floor are covered with dust. There’s stained and worn ceiling tiles over the entrance. The food is very average and the cappuccino machine was broken that we were served luke warm. Our server was very nice and replaced the cappuccinos with complementary coffee. I would not recommend this place for dinner. The cocktails were pricey but well made.

We had a 6:15 reservation on a Saturday night - when we arrived, the gentleman that checked us in made a point to tell the hostess who was seating us that we were an OpenTable reservation before we were seated which seemed weird (on their website, under reservations, they link to OpenTable so not sure what this was about?). The restaurant itself had nice ambiance, but we got seated as one of the less favorable spots, right across from the bar and server prep station/ computer station and next to a door that opened up to a much nicer dining area - not sure if this was related to the fact that we were an "OpenTable reservation" or what lol.

Once seated food and drinks were good - we got a few appetizers and small plates to share and everything was delicious. We were happy with the prices in comparison to some of the other comparable restaurants located in Foxwoods. Waiter and staff were attentive to us and all surrounding tables. Would recommend for a nice dinner at Foxwoods.

Food Was wonderful, service was great. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars was due to the scorpion bowl....It was quite expensive and didn't taste very good. If you're going to spend $50 on one drink you at least expect it to taste good! But that's not the fault of the Wait staff or kitchen!

Our 2nd time there, first time was great. I have Celiac disease,so gluten-free choices were available, however, this time there were NO dessert choices except ice cream. Also, my salmon entree was not only a small portion, it was a half inch thick on one end and only skin on the other half. Weird and unacceptable. Will think twice before gong there before our next concert at Foxwoods. Disappointed, left hungry after paying $26.00 for an entree? Unbelievable! My non-gluten free husband loved his meal, but felt uncomfortable eating while I could do nothing but watch.

Red Lantern has awesome food, however the hostesses seem to lose sight that they are a restaurant not a status symbol. We were seated at a truly awful, not functional table staring at bathroom sinks and were made to feel terrible about it. The manager was hardly any better. Our visit was certainly marred by this.

We had a 5pm reservation. We were seated in a noisy area close to the check in stand. Our cocktails arrived after our appetizers were served. We had to ask to have the appetizer plates removed when the dinner was served. In spite of these difficulties, the food was was well prepared and delicious. Servers and management need some work.

We made a reservation, but once we got there we decided to sit at the bar as it seemed to have a better party atmosphere. The bartenders were really great, but at first one told us we could only have a limited menu at the bar, but when we asked the other bartender what she recommends, she suggested something that was not on the bar menu and we were confused because we certainly would have ordered from the main menu to begin with. The food was average, although it was brought out very quickly. Portions were small and prices were high. But we enjoyed ourselves anyway.
