Had a wonderful dinner here late after the Indians and Tigers game last Friday. The entire team was incredibly friendly and accommodating. Had a tiny problem with one of ours sides and it was dealt with immediately and professionally. Apart from that, we had a great meal and wonderful service. Would definitely return.

Reliable, perfectly prepared, high quality food. Knowledgeable server recommended excellent food-wine pairings, which only added to the experience. Red is the best place in Cleveland to enjoy steak, hands-down (I've been to the others and have been burned too many times).

While the food and atmosphere were absolutely amazing, the service at Red was terrible. Our server - Judith - couldn't be bothered with us. While other tables were getting attentive service, we were ignored. Mind you, this was a at 5:00pm. At the time, we were her only table. She didn't even know that we were there; after being seated, we nearly walked out after waiting for 10 minutes for service. We had to ask for bread. I had to obnoxiously wave at her when I wanted something, and even then, I didn't get her attention. We overheard other servers describing the menu to their patrons, describing different cuts of meat, etc. Judith only asked if we were ready to order. It was supposed to be a special dinner for my husband and me, and Judith's poor service - for which there was no excuse - was beyond disappointing, and detracted from what should have been a perfect dining experience. At Red's prices, one would expect professional servers. Judith didn't get the memo.

Food was very good, although pricey. For the prices being charged, I would expect better. Service was very good and accomodating. We were there for anniversary dinner, 6 of us, and we all enjoyed our meals, which included appetizers, main coarse, several sides, dessert. One troublesome thing: paid for valet parking and at around 10 p.m., saw the valet packing up to leave. When we went to the receptionist, she just said "oh you can go down there to get your car". Not very customer focused for being a high-end restaurant and for the money we just spent. Also, expect a 20% tip to be included in your bill.

This was our first time at Red and we came for my birthday, specifically because I love steak. My husband and I have eaten at a lot of steakhouses and thought we'd give Red a try. We both got the 8 oz CAB Prime filets and they were AMAZING! Cooked perfectly, so tender and the outer seasonings were just enough. Best steak I've had in a long time. Our server was fantastic. She was always checking in to make sure everything was perfect. When our side (parmesan tater tots) were a bit too bland for our liking she brought out a couple of unique dips to go with. We also had the doughnut holes for dessert, which were very tasty and just enough of something sweet after dinner. Although I felt like their side dishes could be a little more interesting, everything else was well done. Would recommend!

Our server was Judith (Judy as I would call her-since that's my mom's name) and she rocked! so nice and pleasant and helpful - we exchanged dog stories (I hope your dog did not get into the garbage Friday night). It was my boyfriend's birthday and the donut holes were the bomb! will definitely be back again and will NOT ask for Judith - HAHA - just kidding Judy :) will definitely be back and will request Judith - thank you for a great night of food and fun!

All of the staff were very professional and friendly. The hostess was very accommodating when we asked to have a table away from the door. We ordered cocktails and a salad to start and both came quickly and were well prepared. For dinner, we ordered the NY strip and Ribeye, along with several sides. We asked the waiter for a wine recommendation, and he did not disappoint. The entire meal was excellent and we walked away with delicious leftovers for lunch the next day.

Three of us were looking for a mid-week, late night restaurant after an Indians game. Having dined at Red many times, we were pleased that Red offered a late night reservation on a busy night that had Cleveland's baseball and football teams playing along with Paul McCartney at the Q. We arrived at the restaurant which was certainly winding down for the evening, but still had a few diners ending their meals, and a well patronized bar. Our server, James S., couldn't have been more accommodating. He offered us several specials and pleasant Cleveland sport team conversation. We settled on salads, sides, and a ribeye and filet for our meals. My wife and I requested we split one ribeye, which our server and the kitchen gladly served, slicing the ribeye to share. The steaks were prepared superbly. The wine selections were plentiful and generously poured. This Cleveland gem is a definite repeat anytime of the day, but I have to say, a slower pace and eventful late night, made this restaurant dining experience very special.

Our service was amazing and truly made our night. The potatoes were being remade when we arrived so we chose the green beans (which we were more than ok with!). However, our server brought us out a large sample to try at the end of our meal once it was all remade to make sure we had a chance to try our first choice. So appreciated. It was our 11th Anniversary and we were brought out a complementary desert that said Happy Anniversary in chocolate on the sauce plate. Every touch was perfect and so very thoughtful.

When we arrived 10 min earlier than our reservation, they were eager to sit us which was slightly unexpected, but very much appreciated. Unfortunately, we were sat in a corner, upon which the single spot light "was having difficulties." So our night varied from a well lit experience to a dimly one, neither which were bad per se, i would just prefer it to be consistent. We got ny strip steaks with one side of green beans which were both quite good. Although I'm not sure that the price associated with the food was appropriate given our experience at Red.

My wife and I went to Cleveland for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary. Booked the Red on recommendation of my sister who lives in Cleveland. Great place, in the up and coming Gateway district just a few short blocks from our hotel and the very cool 4th street area.
Rooftop bar is a nice feature particularly while waiting for your table though it doesn't have the character of the restaurant.
While we had booked a table, we ultimately decided to eat at the bar; it looked lively and we often prefer eating at the bar.
Everything we ate was fantastic and our martinis were just the right size (note to bars in nice restaurants everywhere....It doesn't matter if you buy bigger martini glasses, or what you charge, if you only fill the glass it two-thirds of the way up, we're going to feel like your short-changing us.
Nice size shrimp in the shrimp cocktail and we split the Certified Angus Beef Prime NY Strip Medium Rare. Absolutely perfectly cooked and the seasoning was unique and perfectly suited to the steak. The steak was so tender, it was if we had the best of both worlds; the flavor of a strip and the tenderness of a filet mignon.
Service was first class and always there before we needed anything. Had the cheesecake for dessert, also delicious.
1st Class restaurant in a great location.

Red steakhouse disappoint we were treated well and taken care of by Alyson and she was knowledgeable about the menu as well as the food.We started out with a beet and a calamari appetizer which was very good. The main course we both enjoyed was there CAB prime strip which was cooked perfect and seasoned just right. They a good selection of sides to accompany the steak and we opted for the lobster which was delicious, for dessert the us house made donuts with 3 dipping sauces they were very good and on the house we would highly recommend the food and service there as top notch.

Fabulous food. Great steaks, salads and sides. Service was outstanding. Waiter Mark was tremendous---exactly right level of attentiveness. Proactive in recognizing our needs. Balance of supporting staff was great in keeping water glasses full and food delivered hot. Slightly loud when we arrived--it was a Monday evening and room was full with larger business groups. But we could talk just fine. Great overall.

The restaurant was absolutely fabulous . Some of the best food in Cleveland. Despite being very crowded we did not have any wait at all for our table and were seated immediately. Our server was very knowledgeable and also made some great suggestions including wine. An outstanding evening

Took a client to Red (Downtown Cleveland location) for a business lunch meeting. Was very disappointed by the amount of flies and gnats flying around the entire lunch. We mentioned this to our server, but she said that they needed to keep the front doors open which was allowing all of the flies to come in. Very unappetizing.
Ordered 3 salads with proteins = $75. Very expensive lunch to have to be distracted by flies!
