We loved the bartender and really enjoyed our meal too.....our table server was a bit frazzled and it showed....other than that a top notch time! The trout salad was off the hook, I've never had anything like it.

Mediocre and, in my opinion, bland food (had trout and pappardelle), but good service and nice atmosphere.

Beautiful, warm and cozy restaurant. We had an excellent meal, starting with the guacamole (house made and nicely fresh) followed by the duck breast ("cooked perfectly" according to my wife) and the seafood risotto (with an amazing selection/amount of seafood).
Service was excellent -- timely, engaging yet not overly intrusive.

Highly recommended!

The food and service was excellent as always. We had the monkfish, and it was amazing. The host said they only have it a few times a year. If you ever get the chance we highly recommend it.

This is a gem in the Saugerties/Woodstock area. Wonderful food. Tables are close but definitely worth going out of your way to get there. Popular with locals so do make a reservation to be sure you can be seated.

Could have been a lovely meal if our server was even least slightly interested in guiding us through the menu. Instead she seemed vaguely disgruntled that we were there at all, answered no questions and provided pretty much zero insight into the preparation of dishes on the menu when asked. The food was decent, in that old school oversauced, gelatinous way. I wish I could say we enjoyed our meal to kick off my birthday weekend, but we didn’t at all. In the future The Red Onion should decline a late reservation (9:30 on a Saturday night) if it’s too late for their staff. Diner’s should never feel uncomfortable.

This was our 1st visit to Red approx. an hour away and have been wanting to go for years. Arrived early for table, so got a drink at the bar. One drink was good, but sweet, so I asked bartender to adjust and he happily offered a couple options and obliged. Our waitress was good, but not warm and fuzzy. Food was amazing and we would definitely recommend and will be back again!

The most amazing rack of lamb I’ve had in ages. Not cheap, but they’re generous with portions. Top notch service. We were there on vacation, or I would say I cannot wait to return very soon!

One of the best restaurants around. Excellent menu, great food, good service. We had fish and chips and the vegetable curry with chicken. Highly recommend both.

Food is always excellent . This is my favorite go to restaurant. The menu is not overly large which I actually like. There is always the standard fare with a few specials sprinkled in.
My friend and I both got the North Carolina sea bass with a parsnip puree and asparagus in a buerre blanc sauce ... it was transportive and heavenly . Highly recommend this restaurant but make sure to make a reservation on open table as the food is so delicious it gets booked up fast !

Uploaded a photo, it does not do this dish justice ...

12/24/17 Dinner service: Terrible service, the waitress never asked how our food was, never asked if we wanted another glass of wine and most importantly never cracked a smile and showed absolutely no enthusiasm for being there.

I know no one wants to work on Xmas eve, but we were really looking forward to this meal having never dined here before. I was embarrassed in front of my guests for having suggested such a place. I was under the impression that it was a fine dining establishment.

It’s really too bad because the food was good. We will never dine here again.

What a great restaurant. I’ve been all over the world and been to some really good restaurants. The food at the RO arrives hot looks and tastes excellent and the service style unique. What more can one ask?

New York Strip Steak, mountain of mashed potato and cream spinach was excellent and my husband got the Lamb Chops seasoned perfectly. Very good wine selection, and very friendly service.
