"We tried this restaurant on a week night and it was fairly empty. However, the food was good. The only item we didn't like was the tuna skewer: the tuna was overcooked for our taste. Otherwise everything else was cooked well. Try the curried sweet potato green pea samosas and the Thai coconut curry crab: they are delicious. The mushroom leek & Gruyere fritters were very tasty. The lamb and the falafel sliders were good as well. And don't forget their risotto: phenomenal (they are not an Italian restaurant but their risotto is cooked perfectly)!!"

"I've been to Red Maple many times for drinks, so I wanted to try it for dinner. What a huge mistake! The service was terrible b/c there were so many large groups there at one time with only one server! Our food took forever to come out and when it did my salad was completely missing dressing. We sat at these low large couches and the music was so loud that I couldn't hear my friends talking across the table from me. I also ended up choosing two items on their menu that were not available...I was told they were "out of season." If that's the case, why wouldn't the menu's be updated to reflect this. What a huge disappointment!"

"My husband and I went to Red Maple for a pre-concert dinner and were pleasantly surprised by Red Maple. The vibe, music and food exceeded our expectations. Every dish we had was delicious, especially the chorizo tacos. We live in DC and go out to dinner frequently and enjoyed our dining experience at Red a Maple more than recent dining experiences in DC. Our only complaint is they need more wait staff. Our poor waiter was running around all night without a chance to breathe. He did the best he could but he could have used help. The seating hostess ended up helping throughout the night.
We will definitely go back again. Great place!!!"

"Withstanding the overly intoxicated guy that interrupted our dinner and started a fight in the middle of the restaurant everything else was satisfactory."
