We arrived a little after 7 PM to do a wine tasting before dinner. At that point, the wine bar area was uncomfortably loud. After tasting a few wine samples, and the crowd diminished a bit, it was much more comfortable. In the end, I thoroughly enjoyed the wine tasting, and our server was great. When we sat down for dinner, the atmosphere was wonderful, and the food was delicious. This place is such a happy place for me! I can’t wait till my next visit.

Great dinner with another couple at Red Feather on Friday, May 13. Started with whipped ricotta & grilled baguette. Had Hyde Park(er) cocktails, which were good--very refreshing and tasty. Also had cosmopolitans, which were good. Beet salads were amazing, as were the gnocchi and the shrimp & grits. Two at the table had burgers, and they were cooked perfectly & came with an unbelievable amount of fries! Loved this place and our experience.

We were seated promptly, even though we were 30 minutes early. We went to Rubys downtown 2 weeks ago, and arrived 20 minutes ahead of reservations, but were not seated until 30 minutes after reservations. We will likely make the extra drive to go past Rubys, and straight to Tony’s in the future. Great experience here made us forget about our dismal experience there.

Our waitress was very nice. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. We ordered drinks and an appetizer. After drinks came we ordered dinner. Both of us got the surf&turf. The sushi bar and grill are separate. Our steaks came out first, then our sushi rolls, then our appetizer. The server apologized. They were really busy and the food was good. Just maybe lacking some communication from the grill to the sushi bar. Overall a 4.5. Also bathrooms were really clean. Definitely a plus
