Another lovely evening at Red Star! We were treated like royalty!!
Casual atmosphere, nice evening vibe. Good drinks. Not very busy on a Saturday night
We had a lovely server. We had a large party with my husband and I and our 4 young boys. They can be a little rambunctious and our waiter was patient and kind to us! On top of that, the food was amazing and the serving sizes were large. YUM
Loved our food, loved our server, loved this joint! Will definitely be back!!!
We’re really proud of the warm, intimate atmosphere we created and love that you noticed. We're excited to see you back at Red Star - Red Star Management (9/22/19)
Red Star is a great restaurant that can accommodate almost everyone. The ambiance is more casual and great for corporate lunches. They have big tables that can accommodate large groups. Portions are just right and the staff are really nice.
Thanks so much for your feedback! We’re really proud of the warm, intimate atmosphere we created. We will most definitely share your feedback with our staff! - Red Star Management (8/31/19)
The services was very slow. I was eating by myself and it took over 30 minutes to take my order and then another 30 minutes to get my food. I was sitting with water for over an hour before I received my food.
Fabulous fresh food that is always sure to please. Need to make a change to a dish? They will always try to please. I love this place.
Scrumptious food and drinks. Large portion. I had the pork chop which was outstandingly, and HUGE!
Great service and ambiance and the food was spectacular. The lamb and chicken dishes were amazing
I haven't been in for about 7 years, but met some friend there from out of town. Fingers crossed it was still as great now as it was then. I shouldn't have been worried.
IT WAS AMAZING. Quick service, great food, quiet (granted it was a Sunday evening at 6:30).
Our waitress, can't remember her name, but she was from So Africa, was great. I always joke with staff and she was ready. We had lots of laughs with her.
I rated everything 5 stars, except value. I appreciate the cost, but would have like a few more veggies with my AWESOME flank steak.
I promise not to wait 7 years to come back.
A comfortable environment, great service and good food. Red Star is quickly becoming my favorite spot for a date night in Portland.
The Portland food scene is amazing and this one is a winner. We had no problem getting a reservation and the food delivered. I had some of the best pesto pasta and my daughter loved her Lamb Shank. My mother enjoyed the soup of the day, smoked chicken vegetable. She was not wowed by the shrimp cocktail.
Everything from the Red Star cocktails to the grilled bread to cheese plate to the steak salad was outstanding!
Great dinner and outstanding bourbon drinks!
Everything going for you but the menu. Wow! Menu is extremely limited! Service was amazing, food prepared was good (grilled steak, potatoes and spinach) but options were nearly non-existent. Wine selection limited but cocktails were great. Not sure I'll be back myself.
I have been to Red Star many times and always enjoyed my meal. I did attach a medium score to service this time, not because of any issues with the server, but due to the fact that our meal- a hamburger- took an extraordinary time to prepare. I know this may have just been an oversight in the kitchen, or between the kitchen and the server, but it was a bit disappointing. Otherwise the experience was just fine and I would not hesitate to return to Red Star.
As usual, the food and service were wonderful. This visit, we had the breakfast sandwich. While it may seem like a simple standard egg sandwich, the flavor profile was fantastic. Each ingredient complimented the other and it filled us up for an afternoon of shopping without being weighed down. The Madagascar vanilla bean latte was slightly sweet and enhanced the espresso without the added sugars. I don't drink lattes often, but enjoyed it thoroughly.
Thanks for stopping by and seeing us for breakfast. We are so happy it was delicious and filling so you could enjoy the rest of your day. We are always happy to host you for a bite or a latte and we hope we can see you again soon! - Red Star Management
The atmosphere in the dining room was charming - warm and cozy, and there was some noise from the bar area, not too loud, just enough to make it lively. The food was excellent - the sauces, main items, side dishes all had variety and unusual ingredients (i.e. fava bean dumplings for example). A couple of caveats - the cheese bread is not "cheesy" and is not warm - it had a spread, not melted cheese, and there was no discernable parmesan taste in it; the bread was sliced thickly, so toasting it meant a very large area of hard crust, hard to eat. However, it was quite delicious on its own merit as the spread was quite good. Another issue was that the service was terribly slow, but not, apparently, due to the waiters but instead to the kitchen. That may have been a rare situation so I would not hesitate to go back - overall the food and ambience, and the wait service were excellent.
Thank you so much for your feed back and sharing your thoughts about Red Star. We are glad you had an excellent meal and we are always happy to hear from our guests. Our kitchen always tries to meet the mark to offer expedient and delicious meals but thank you for your patience when it takes a bit more time. Next time we will be sure to hit the mark and make sure everything is perfect. - Red Star Management
The appetizers and drinks were great; however, three of us ordered the $20 burger and all of them were overcooked. My burger in particular was way overdone, so much so that it tasted like char, was dry, and half the thickness of even the other two overdone burgers. The service was also slow and one of our daughter's meals came out at least 10 minutes after the rest of the meals. Given the price of the food, the burger should have been stellar and my daughter's meal, or something, comped.
We are so sorry to hear about your burger and your daughters meal. Thank you for your patience and you are absolutely right, we should have made it right with you then and there. We are very disappointed we missed the mark and we hope you can come in and see us again so we can make it right. - Red Star Management
The wait staff was attentive, the food was amazing. Everything was great.
Party of 5 friends, started during happy hours (beers $2 off), appetizers (charcuterie & cheese boards), risotto ($21), brick chicken ($27) and halibut special ($36)... Overall the atmosphere was upscale, in downtown, nice escape from rainy weather, and pretty quiet so we could enjoy the conversations. I'd go back to Red Star Tavern.
Service and food was great. Ahi Tuna was amazing. I'll be back soon!!!!!
The food service was so-so but the hostess was fabulous. My meal was overcooked which may have ben my fault for saying I wanted it well but it was fish and ended up being rubbery.
Food is exceptional, perfectly prepared. Service could be better, server didn't know the dishes.
Food was incredible and service was very good! Drinks were very tasty but a little on the pricy side. Would definitely go again!
It's a very special moment in a downtown environment when you can get such amazing personable service. Plus, the food was delicious.
Excellent. Best in town.
This place has an awesome happy hour, really enjoyed our visit.
Greeted warmly, bar staff knowledgeable, wait staff friendly and helpful, hostess was amazing. Menu items were interesting, flavors complex, charcuterie great, all items tasty.
The happy hour is great value! The normal menu is great but it's a bit pricey. It's definitely a great place to take someone to give them a good Portland bar experience.
Went here because I wanted to find a new happy hour spot nearby... this is definitely my new spot! Came with a friend after work dressed casually and felt comfortable there, but I really would love to come back dressed up because it has a "treat yo self" vibe going on. Their signature drink is a MUST HAVE if you want to know what heaven tastes like. Happy hour bites are equally delectable, I ordered the wings (spicy but don't overpower taste) and my friend ordered the steak with smoked blue cheese fries. The wait staff was friendly and very good. I don't think my water glass got below 2 inches, and I drink a lot of water! Overall this restaurant is a 11/10 in my book!
Lizzie and Tim are really incredible! I had an unexpected allergic reaction to a soup, and they literally did everything within their power to reverse my dining experience. My husband and I were so impressed with them that we went back two days later. Best crème brûlée I've ever had in my life!!!
Great bloody Mary’s - quiet for New Years Dat brunch
Overpriced and the staff could care less about service. They were very busy socializing with each other and we found it hard to order drinks and dinner.
We stayed at the Hotel Monaco for New Year's and enjoyed happy hour and dinner New Year's Eve and breakfast New Year's Day. The food was excellent and the staff we're very friendly. Excellent place!
Red Star has a well rounded menu, great for business lunches or anytime you don't know someone's palate. The atmosphere is business casual, and has tables large enough to accommodate large groups.
I met up with my sister and visiting brother and his wife for dinner. We were greeted by a very charming and professional host, whose name I have forgotten... she had very short red hair. We were warmly welcomed by management. The server assistant was gruff and borderline rude throughout-perhaps she had a headache. Server was less than focused- food was delivered to incorrect positions, a burger was underdone(not badly- my sister went with it) and the table was cluttered. It was a busy night, so a few points missed can be forgiven. The food was excellent! My brother had a beautiful steak dish, his wife had some lovely roast chicken, and I had a butter lettuce salad and LOTS of beautiful mussels. We will definitely return- I certainly understand that sometimes service can be bumpy!!
Love Red Star. The service is excellent -- warm, professional but friendly, and perfectly attentive. The ambience is nice and the food is quite good, with some interesting combinations, and served in manageable portions, which I really appreciate. My only wish is for a few more vegetarian options, though I have to say that ones I've tried have been delicious. Highly Recommend.
This was a birthday celebration, and restaurant was advised before-hand. Staff was welcoming and with good wishes proclaimed when we arrived.
Food was very disappointing. Hamburger served on a tasteless hot dog bun, risotto had very little taste. It took 3 tries to get a cup of coffee that was not lukewarm.
Restaurant was busy; maybe that was the problem, but still . . . doubt we'll consider returning.
