Red Onion Cafe
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
This was our 2nd visit to Boone and our 2 visit to Red Onion, we have been pleased both times. Staff is friendly, food is good and overall it’s enjoyable. We will be back!!
Dinner was ok. The service was awful. We had to ask for dirty dishes to be removed before dessert and then it was only half completed. I put dirty dishes on table behind us before dessert.
The food was not great, and service was slow. My grandson's hamburger was dried out and tough. My husband's salad with grilled chicken had little flavor and the chicken was dry.
Pimento cheese appetizer is delicious, and the peanut butter icecream cake is to die for!!!
Food was awesome! Our waitress was friendly and very outgoing! It was a great place and we will definitely be back!
Get the red velvet cheesecake. You’re welcome.
We made reservations for dinner through OpenTable, which is always convenient. Great service during our meal at The Red Onion. I tried the french onion soup and kale trio salad. Both were delicious!
Excellent service & delicious food ! Great experience.
A nice night out to celebrate my birthday with my family.
Very good service and good food! Thanks. 1/18/20
Cute place food was great. The service initially was slow but our food came out quick . Overall good experience.
Well all the rumors I had heard were true, and this is a great place to relax, eat a great meal at a good price, have a drink and not get pushed out the door. Saw folks with some kids, couples, parents with college kid....had something for everyone on the menu....was able to just sit down and enjoy a meal and talk. Yes, I would definitely be coming back here again.
Always a great choice.
One of the best restaurants in Boone, NC
I live the soups, baby kale trio salad, quiche and the salmon and polenta cake is out of this world!
Service was good. Food was a little bland. Everyone in the party had the same comment
Out of salmon so substituted chicken for the salad but same cost. French onion brought out spilt all on saucer with no cheese on top.
We ordered a chicken salad and a ribeye steak for dinner. I asked for my steak medium and it came out basically mooing. The lettuce in the salad, ranch, baked potato and vegetable side with the steak all taste like they are pre-packaged and refrigerated. It does not taste like fresh food. The service was good, the appetizer for the avocado dip was average, and the chicken and steak flavor was average. The restaurant is nice and the service was fine, but the price you pay for the food is not worth the meal. The dip, steak, salad, and beer came out to around $56 with tip. I would recommend going somewhere else that's a little pricier and get your money's worth for quality of food.
Awesome food at a
Very reasonable price!
Our whole family LOVED the variety on the menu and each of our meals was fantastic. But my fav, was the desert..which was the Horace cookie...it was delicious!
Overall food was excellent. Disappointed with the spices in French Onion soup. Seemed like sage or rosemary, weird.
Service was among the worst I've ever had. Loved the food, but staff needs a LOT more training.
Had a really great meal. Food was good, and fresh. Order was also correct. Did feel very rushed to pay after the meal, otherwise great service.
Small portions, asked for a booth to put a baby car seat in at the time of reservation, but they would not give it to us because of a later reservation with more people.
Red Onion has been a favorite since the 80s for us. It remains excellent
This was our first visit and we enjoyed every minute of it. Will come back again when we are in Boon.
Food was great, the service was outstanding our overall time spent there was outstanding.
Try the mushroom lasagna (share coz it's extremely rich). All entrees were excellent, surpassed only by the dessert selections
The restaurant was not full and we were seated right away. Onion rings came out in a reasonable time and were OK, but I would not order again. Then we waited half an hour for our entre. Fortunately, the water pitcher was nearby so we could refill our own glasses. We got tired of waiting, found someone and asked for our check. We were told our food would be right out! We agreed to wait. Low Country Salmon finally arrived. It was very good, but very salty. We had a few bites and asked for a to go box and the check. The waitress took off 25% for the long wait. Probably just an off night, but disappointing.
Great food and service! Would recommend for anyone looking a great meal.
Haven't eaten here in over 20 years, and the food was great, just as I remembered it.
