Reds Wine Tavern Ratings and Reviews
A litttle too loud for comfortable converstion. A little expensive - $12 for an irish Coffee?! A nice ambience, a classy place, good lighting. My biggest issue was the volume of the music. Turn it down a few notches 🙂
We didn’t try the food but were forced to rate it, hence the 3/5 stars.
Wasn't too busy being a Saturday night in the financial district. We enjoyed the comfy chairs, seats by the window and phenomenal dinner. We especially enjoyed the Caesar salad, wild mushroom soup and apple pie with cheddar. The food arrived hot which you don't always get at other places! Thanks for a nice dinner out.
Much too loud for a downtown bar/restaurant that was half empty. I'm not really sure what vibe they are going for in there on a Friday evening but very loud music in a half empty establishment is far below typical Toronto standards. I will not return. Service was decent and the drinks were pretty good but pricey for the overall experience. If this restaurant wasn't downtown but in another city it would be hopping (possibly). In Toronto, with all the choice we have I would expect more. I don't think it was bad but just below average for the city.
They were apparently short staffed and so our drinks order took a very long time to arrive -- and we only got the drinks a few minutes before our entrees in fact, which wasn't ideal. The cocktails were lovely (almost worth the wait...) and most of the food was tasty and well cooked. The fries however were lukewarm and overdone which was also disappointing.
Food: Got the cobb salad with shrimp. It was delicious! When reading the description I anticipated it to be like an ordinary cobb salad but this was not. The combination of all the ingredients (sans the blue cheese which I opted out of for cheddar) worked so well together. The added soft-boiled egg was a good touch to it.
Service: Terrible. It took about 20 minutes for anyone to acknowledge us. Finally the busser came by and set our table, gave us water, and menus. The server came by to acknowledge about another 20 minutes after that to which we were ready to order (after 40 minutes you should know what you want). Our food came and was brought by the runner but not once during our meal did the server come by and ask us if everything was fine. I really wanted to tip her 10% (and that was being nice).
Ambience: Cool ambience. There is indoor seating and outdoor seating. We sat outside since it was a nice night. Their was a wall that separated the outdoor seating from the side walk but it was still noisy (a good noisy) enough where you felt like you were still in the city.
I've been coming to Reds since it opened. It is a good spot and reliable for food, service and ambiance. Usually. This past visit it was exceptionally noisy, especially the music. We went upstairs, but the music blasted up there from the lower bar area. It did seem to quiet down later to the point where my friend and I could catch up.
I'm putting the noise down to the fact that it was Film Festival weekend, and hoping that it isn't a permanent change.
2nd time @ RED's for business lunch and most likely the last time. Service is extremely slow .. we arrived at 12 noon, and waited 1/2 hour for waiter to take our order ( appears he forgot about us). Had to flag someone else.. ordered salads ( to get the order in faster) however took another 40 minutes to get served. Needless to say it was embarasing ,as it was I who recomended your restaurant to my client ... wont do it again... sorry .. I have given you a second chance.
Great venue , great comfort food but absolutely the most horrendous service I have encountered in quite sometime. What a pity that one individual with such a negative attitude is allowed to work in this eatery.
What is even more disturbing and disappointing is the the manager accused me of lying and stated that the server in question was their very 'best' and that I was fabricating my experience.
