"This used to be our favorite restaurant but it has become less and less over the years. Dry entres and limited menu with weird appetizers. Not good don't bother."

"Just moved to the Portland area and was eager to try out a new place. Found Red Star and the location was perfect, barely even 1 block from the rail station. Service was fantastic, food was good (seemed a little pricey, but for all I know that might be the Portland standard), and I wish OpenTable had an option for "notable whiskey list", cause this place certainly had one. Will definitely return her as a staple early night drinking location."

"Long wait for drinks and food. Friendly staff, but no flexibility in kitchen. Very limited choices. Not much on the menu for vegetarians. Dessert menu lacking choices for anyone who loves chocolate options. Rock fish item tasty, but overpriced. Kids had to wait way too long to receive an appetizer, though the kids choices on their menu was above average. Wait staff very friendly and attempted to be accommodating, but service from kitchen extremely slow on a Sat. night. I think a menu choice update would help, and going on a week night might be a better experience."

"Meh, not a very good place. Read some great and not-so-great reviews hoping the not-so-great were anomalies. This was for our anniversary and we were put in a corner and ignored. Waiter seemed to be put out doing his job and came over about twice. Once to drop our food off and another to clean up. I wouldn't personally ever go back but maybe it'll be better for others."

"My husband dropped me off but couldn't locate the parking belonging to the Monaco hotel. So he was disgruntled upon arriving. Then the drink he ordered was missing an essential ingredient. The server didn't seem aware of how to do quality control before presentation. So the food was great loved the pumpkin bread. No manager checked in to see how we were doing. Probably part of the issue we experienced."

"My family was visiting Portland for the day, so I jumped online to find some great places to eat. Red Star was one of our top picks. We made a reservation for 10 on a Saturday night. They were very understanding and accommodating when we had to push it back an hour due to Zoo Lights being crazy. The food was all delicious, the drinks were stellar, and our server Ben was awesome! I would highly recommend this place!"

"This was a great place to go to have a comfortable and tasty breakfast. There was a little hiccup with the order and delivery, but the server wa apologetic, recognized the problem and gave us a discount. Nice he did t just try to ignore it.
Food is consistent and a decent range of offering - for breakfast, lunch or dinner."

"They brought the wrong salad but quickly made the order correct. The mushrooms were bland but the celery soup was delicious. Chicken was decent. Not sure if I will dine here again. A little pricey for what you get. Could be a really great place, just needs some tweaks and attention to detail."

"I've passed by Red Star many time on MAX, wondering what lay behind its dark exterior. My friends and I were delighted to find a bright, welcoming space with an extensive bar area (tables & booths) and a comfortably elegant restaurant, spacious but not cavernous. The staff are knowlegeable and friendly, the menu well-chosen & seasonal, and the food delicious. Prices are reasonable. Definitely recommend this place that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a part of downtown with limited restaurant options. We will definitely return!"

"My wife and I recently had dinner at the Red Star. They fist sat us at a small corner booth which I had to squeeze to get into (I am about average in weight). They gladly re-sat us, but why they have this booth in the corner, somewhat isolated is questionable. The food and service was about average but nothing special."

"I was really disappointed with this place. The waitress was terrible. We had a restaurant manager of another establishment in our party and she said she would have fired this waitress. The food was certainly not worth the expense. The burger was on the dry side, the fries were frozen, the topping on the burger was weird tasting (too one note). The brisket was just ok, not as good as my husband's according to the person that ate it. (My husband and I have a very successful BBQ catering business.) The greens were ok, but the potatoes were dry, they were NOT fingerling potatoes as described and the guest that ordered them did not eat them. The drinks were the only part of the meal that was good. I may return for drinks, but I certainly wouldn't be in a hurry to eat there again, especially not with so many other good restaurant choices in Portland. No wonder they only get 3 1/2 stars. It's deserved. My sister warned me not to go here...I should've listened."

"I'd been to Red Star a couple of years ago and enjoyed it. I dined there again in October 2015 and found it disappointing. The food is overpriced. The menu is so Portland. A $9.00 salad with yellow beets and pretty much nothing else?"
