Red Onion Cafe
Good variety of menu items, great friendly service and excellent food. Spacing between tables is good and makes for a very pleasant experience
Good good great service. Recommend it. Why do I have to do a minimum of 50 characters.
Sat outside on covered patio. Had not anticipated it being so noisy, but we were able to carryon a conversation with a little effort. Our lunch arrived within 10 minutes of placing our order and was delicious. We were checked on several times by the wait staff. All in all an enjoyable lunch.
Food was great, service was excellent! Will definitely return!
The atmosphere and service were all great! Loved sitting outside and feeling the breeze come through. I wish the food had been the same. The Onion Rings were completely room temperature - not warm at all. I asked if the fish tacos were spicy and was told no. The sauce on them was very spicy. My sons Chicken Sandwich was just 'ok'. Nothing special. My husband did like his French Dip. But overall our food was just so so and I wouldn't go back simply because of the food. But again - great service and lovely atmosphere!
Good dining experience. Reservation was honored on time, adequate staff to handle diners, good service an good food at a reasonable price.
We have been to Red Onion several times now. Really enjoy the pasta, salmon and fish tacos.
Excellent service. Food came quickly and was delicious. Making a reservation helps.
Food was delicious, our waitress was so personable and kind. We will definitely be back.
I have gone to the Red Onion for years and they always have great food at reasonable prices
This was a huge disappointment as it came referred. The food was subpar, there was zero atmosphere and they didn’t even have anyone over 21 to make us a drink
We ate by the door that leads to all of the outside dining. Between servers and patrons the door would slam shut after each opening at least every 20 seconds. No joking. Food was good but ambience a bit lacking for a nice restaurant and expensive meal.
When one meal of 2 didn’t come, waitress said the chef forgot to make it? Didn’t charge for the very late presentation.
it's been a while since we've been to this place and it seems to have gone downhill. Food was just ok. Menu was boring. the only thing that was good was service
Great food, friendly… don’t miss out.
Excellent meat lasagna. Excellent service. Even liked the background music.
Food was tasty and prepared well! Excellent service made for a most enjoyable dinning experience. Looking forward to another meal at the Red Onion Cafe!
It just didn’t taste…. Fresh. The menu wasn’t very diverse, and the food didn’t come out looking appetizing. I had the mushroom lasagna, which just looked like a thrown together afterthought of a dish. Not a good value and we won’t be back
Our meals were tasty. We both had salads. We had onion rings, which were good but would have benefited from a spicy dipping sauce other than ketchup. We are inside and the decor was meh. Outside patio seemed to have more ambiance. We would come back but would hope to see the interior dining area get some updates.
We had lunch outside on the covered patio. Excellent experience!
As always, good food and service. The bread is delicious too.😀
a very cute place with diverse menu. The fish tacos were excellent and the pimento cheese appetizer was huge and good.
My filet was good meat but the coffee rub was a bit excessive.
We'll be back!
Food was too salty. Wine by the glass was very small at high prices.
When we arrived the host asked about our reservation including a gluten free guest. Our guest was given a GF menu. We were so pleased with our meal: The artichoke dip was delicious with a little zip finish. The specialty cocktails and wine by the glass were outstanding. The salmon was cooked to perfection and the tomato bisque was very good. The vegetarian burger and chicken were excellent. Our waiter, Tyler, was knowledgeable, helpful making sure GF was adhered to in the kitchen and so efficient.
Red Onion has come along way since our pre covid visit. It is now a favorite!
Our second time to Boone, NC and the Red Onion Cafe. Reserved a patio table and it was ready for us when we arrived. The Chicken florentine was amazing with fresh veggies. My daughter had her first fried egg hamburger and loved it. This restaurant is our must go to now when we visit. Servers were great!
One of the best entrees I've had in a very long time. Champagne chicken was perfectly cooked and well matched with vegetables and potato. Very well made cocktail too!
Most impressed by the soup (Red Pepper /Gouda cheese) and the Martini. Entrees were solid. Vegatable medley above average spiced nicely. We will come back.
Just not the best... we made a poor choice. Not a lot of menu options but a bit expensive for what we got ($13 for a chicken salad plate)... seemed a bit high. Surprising the cost for a place across from the college. It was fine, just not a place to repeat.
What a pleasant surprise! I ordered filet mignon and it was a fabulous preparation, perfectly cooked medium rare. I take clients to a lot of high end steakhouses, and I would put this up there with the best. The broccoli carrots and mushrooms side was the most flavorful and delicious veggies I’ve had in a long time.
The place itself isn’t fancy, but pleasant and wonderful service. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
A good alternative to nearby options that are overflowing with college students. Bartender had never made a Manhattan before, from the taste of what was delivered.
Excellent wait staff, social distancing and each part of our meal was excellent!
From the reviews we thought it was going to be nicer than it actually was. Service was good but the food was just ok.
Great food and wonderful service. Our server was Sarah and she was very attentive to us and extremely pleasant.
Good food and nice service but not much ambiance!
It was a wonderful The food was awesome the waitress was so pleasant I will definitely come again
Just relocated and this is quickly becoming my favorite place to eat.
Love this little restaurant & the food was awesome!
The Red Onion has delicious pasta, and Shelby our server was awesome!!
Not what I was expecting. It was okay but couldn’t order off dinner menu because it was 3:30pm on a Saturday. Menu was pretty limited so I had to just settle for what was on lunch menu.
We were greeted by Tyler and also waited on by Tyler. He was great. Food was delicious. We sat inside which was just ok. Should have sat outside. Everything was great. I would recommend this restaurant if your in Boone NC
