Reds Midtown Tavern Ratings and Reviews
Although the wait staff was outstanding, in particular Hannah, the steaks that were ordered caused quite a problem.
Since they were substantially under cooked, we had to send them back not once but twice to the kitchen before everything was rectified.
Sadly, after sending the steaks back a second time we actually had a manager of sorts pay us a visit at the table wherein she told us that the steaks were cooked as ordered. ( One was
medium-well and the other well done.) Both were oozing blood on the plates and by no means were cooked as requested. Although she was very indignant and indicated that the steaks were cooked to their thermometers reading, she finally did concede that the well done one was in fact under cooked.
Needless to say, the rest of our party had completed their food whilst we were still waiting for ours. Once received however, I can honestly say that they were delicious as well as the other goodies on our plate.
We were offered a 15% discount on our bill by the way which we declined. Our meal ran over an hour and a half late due to the problems with the cooking of the two steak entrees. We asked for both meals to be removed entirely. Happily they were!
We went because of the winterlicious, a friend and I.
For our starters ...she had Winter Kale Salad and I had Tuna Tostada .
Both were very tasty.
For our mains, we had the Madras Chicken Sandwich and the Shrimp Ravioli. The sauce they used on the sandwich was good, not as spicy as the waiter stressed it would be. And for the ravioli..not very impressed. It seemed pretty bland. I actually asked for salt which I never have never done before.
Loved the desserts, toffee cake and salted caramel dark chocolate mousse. Too full to eat the cake so gave it away to my boss when I got back to the office. The mousse was amazing.
Would definitely come back again.
Great service with an extensive and creative menu. Lots of choices for a variety of tastes. Quick friendly service. Very good wine selection wide range of prices. Very noisy but vibrant. You can ask for a table away from speakers blaring good selection of music
We were looking for a Sunday night bite to eat. My wife and I both ordered Surf & Turf, expecting a small lobster tail and a filet. The steak was good, not great, but good. The Surf portion of the meal was small bits of dried up lobster (I am assuming it was lobster). Had I known I would have just ordered the filet.
We made our reservation for Christmas Eve and since I had my elderly grandmother joining us, I specifically put in the notes not to be seated at a bar height table (too difficult for her to get seated and down again).
When we arrived we were shown to our table which was a bar height table, when I politely said that it wouldn't work for our party, the hostess copped attitude with me and said that's all we've got and that next time I should let them know of any special preferences.
I asked to see a manager and told to "hang on" and she stormed away.
In the end we were seated at a proper table.
Food was average in taste and quality I found. When dessert arrived, the one selection order by two of ours guests was so cold you'd need a chain saw to cut through it. Again, more apologies.
Overall I'd rate this as a B- option for dining. I'm not likely to be back in the near future.
Everything was excellent! I had the pork tenderloin and my bf had the shrimp ravioli. Our only complaint would be that our reservation was for 9:30 on a weekday, and once we arrived we were told the kitchen was closing at 9:45. Other then that the dinner was amazing.
I've been to lunch at Reds Midtown Tavern 3 times and have enjoyed it each time. I've been told their lunch specials are the same as their regular entrees so they are good value. The food is well-prepared and tasty; the wait staff are friendly and helpful. It can be a tad noisy there, as there doesn't seem to be a lot of soft materials to absorb the sound. Still, you can enjoy a conversation with friends. Will definitely go back again.
Great central spot to have a casual (but tasty) dinner. They accommodated my reservation request beautifully, and even surprised my table with a complimentary dessert for the two birthdays, and one pregnancy we were celebrating. Attentive service, accommodating to dietary needs, and friendly service staff.
Definitely created a repeat customer out of me.
I am a fan of Reds on Adelaide, which has consistently met expectations on business lunch food and service for years. The mid-town location loses none of that, but is housed in a hip, but relaxed venue which, despite its large size still maintains a cozy feel. Well done!
Our server was very nice but the rest of our experience was mediocre. Food was either bland or very spicy. The spice/herbs used in the guacamole overwhelmed the lobster. The kale and quinoa salad had a sprinkling of quinoa. The steak and lobster included a rather small piece of lobster. Very underwhelming experience. There are too many good restaurants elsewhere in Toronto for us to return to Reds.
Went to celebrate birthday and watch Playoff baseball game, though had a table reserved sat at bar which is quite large with lots of seating. Our service (Phil) was outstanding and the food was fresh, hot and yummy. Definitely try the home made apple pie. Sister property of Reds on Adelaide St. Highly recommend!
It was an early Sunday afternoon, so while the restaurant felt pretty empty inside, it was a still a beautiful and comfortable set up. However, maybe because it was so quiet, we felt from a service stand point that we might have been forgotten. Minimal checkins. The food was quite good though, fairly priced for the quality, and we were happy we got to take advantage of a surprise $10 off each entree promo given at the door that day. Will try back again at another time when the 'scene' may have more energy and the service should too then.
We chose Reds Midtown for convenience. It was a rainy day so not able to use the patio which would have been nice. It's quite a dark restaurant so we sat in the windowed lounge instead. Good burger. Nice selection of wines by the glass. Half litres would be appreciated in addition to 2 sizes of glass.
