REDS is a good option for a satisfying meal in an agreeable atmosphere. I would recommend REDS as an excellent option for dining downtown. The menu is extensive and they offer a Prix Fixe as well. Cheers!

Ambiance was good. Most of the food was fine. However sent back a salad twice due to slimy greens in my salad. Acting manger very apologetic. Third salad was much better but too turned off to eat. our server disappeared, never checked on us, asked how our meal was going. She did arrive back at the end when we needed our bill and quickly threw it on the table and left. No desire to go back again.

Nice atmosphere and good service. The 4-7 p.m. happy hour specials ($5 drinks and $4 appetizers) are appealing and were a good value. The truffle fries were delicious, as was the wild mushroom soup which was made with truffle oil. Good for a casual get-together with friends or a romantic meal.

We had issues with our table (table of 7 split into two) and we complained but were accommodated right away to another table.
Our initial service was slow. The bartender/waitress seemed unsure of who her tables were and did not come over. But once we hailed someone (possibly a manager), all was rectified.
The prix fixe is a great deal. Our food was spectacular and the kitchen gave us complimentary apple pie to try as we were all talking about it.
All in all in was a superb meal and a great send off party for one of our colleagues.
Thank you!

Went here as part of Winterlicious. The food was good and the service was spectacular! Staff was fantastic and great with food knowledge and recommendations. I went to three restaurants this year as part of Winterlicious and this was by far and away the best. Will definitely be going back.

Date night for my hubby and I before our newest addition arrives. First time at Reds, food was excellent, service was great and ambiance was perfect for a Saturday night out.
My husband had the steak and shrimp which, was so flavourful, although slightly over cooked for his liking, but still tasted amazing! I had the Butter Chicken which was also full of flavour and spice. Only thing I found lacking was the dessert menu. Nothing too exciting so we ended up going for an after-dinner drink and dessert at another restaurant in the area. We will be back though to try more dinner menu items!

Great Value for Food and Excellent Service

Our party of 4 dined at Reds on a Sunday evening and we all loved the dishes we ordered. We started with the Ahi Tuna Tostadas and the Calamari Fritti. The Ahi Tuna Tostadas were creatively presented and fresh. Three of our party ordered the Prime Rib and found it delicious. They especially liked that it came with Yorkshire Pudding, Vegetables and Mashed Potatoes which could be substituted with Fries. I ordered the Ravioli and Garlic Shrimp and it was creatively presented and delicious. Our server, Michael, was friendly, attentive and professional which enhanced our dining experience. Reds also has a Prix Fixe Menu (3 Courses for $35) as well as a Sharing Menu. Whether you try Reds Midtown for lunch or dinner, you will not be disappointed. Thanks for another great dining experience.

Very loud and vibrant environment that is consistent with this restaurant chain. Although a loud environment is not my preference, their Farmer's Market Quinoa may be worth a revisit.

Three of my friends and I came for a New Year's Eve dinner. The prix fixe was reasonably priced and they were accommodating of the vegetarians in our group. The food was very good and served quickly. Drinks are great too. Only down side is that it's a very noisy restaurant.

New Year's Eve dinner for four booked in advance. Arrived and watched the hostess seat 3 walk-ins without a reservation right at the front of the restaurant with a great view. We were brought to the VERY BACK of the restaurant in the corner. Not impressed. Downhill from there.
Waiter was not very accommodating. Any of the cocktails we ordered were "unavailable" and we could choose from the cocktail list. Honestly, what bar doesn't have orange juice for a vodka and OJ?
The food was probably the only redeeming part of the evening. Ate off the prix fixe menu and choices were decent. Will not be returning to this restaurant and I will not recommend it to my friends and colleagues in the area.

The table we were first seated at was right beside the front door. Not at all what I expected. I asked for another table, but there only tables next to where we were first seated. I little better but not great. A choice of tables on your booking site in future where be preferred.

Ordered from the tasting menu. Yorkies (appetizers) were good. Chicken carbonara (main) was meh - pasta was hard, chicken was dry, but the sauce was tasty. Chocolate chess pie (dessert) was inedible - the "pie" was super hard and I could barely bite into it. Service was a bit slow so it was a bit of a wait. Nice atmosphere and drinks, but the food ranges from mediocre to average.

Our waitress was so nice, and helpful too. I liked her a lot but I feel so bad because I can't remember her name! Well, in case someone from Red's Midtown is reading this, our waitress served us Friday evening between 5-7pm, she was a young lady in her 20s with long, light brown hair...she was great! Also, I really loved the food. 3/4 of us at our table ordered ribs and we all loved them so much. Anyway I'll definitely be back! Hopefully soon because I loved it. I'm thinking of returning for my birthday. Keep up the great work! Cheers.
