Ordered the seafood linguine, was projectile vomiting all night, would not recommend.
Great place to relax
Reds continues to impress with excellent food and accommodating service. The seating is comfortable and the menu has enough variety to suit anyone's tastes.
Environment was nice, food was OK at best
Ordered the butter chicken bowl and it had the right amount of spice, but the chicken felt well done and the rice was hard (almost as if it was just reheated from the night before in the microwave).
Great place for a social.
Overall very good atmosphere, service and great quality food. Music could be toned out a little.
Good food/Disinterested service
Had an enjoyable lunch. Food was quite tasty and presented well. All though the restaurant was not busy (we were the sole diners in our section for much of the time we were there), we had limited interaction with our server. Server seemed preoccupied and was not particularly friendly or welcoming. It was slightly off-putting, taking away from the food and ambiance. Would go again in hopes it was a one-off.

Not the best welcome, resistant to our request for a different table and generally not attentive during the meal. Food was tasty but lukewarm at best.
Went there for winterlicious and was amazed at how tasty everything was! Thank you so much!
REDs Winterlicious 2016
My girlfriend and I visited for Winterlicious 2016 for her birthday, after having eaten at Red's before. Previously, our food was excellent, with good portions and tasty dishes and great service. We were very surprised to see how disappointing their Winterlicious menu turned out... My girlfriend got the chicken. It was literally a small chicken breast sliced in half, overcooked, and served on a "bed of potatoes" which turned out to be one half of a single small potato. That was it. I got the fish, it was quite literally 5 bites of fish. The salad was very uninspired (just romaine lettuce and a few added ingredients), as was the mushroom soup (also was cold), and for dessert both the apple tart and brownies were so hard we could barely eat them with a fork. It was extremely disappointing to say the least. We were still very hungry after and went elsewhere to get a second meal. Surprising, as the food from the normal menu was delicious in our previous encounter, we figured they would put some effort into the Winterlicious event, but sadly was not the case. Would absolutely not recommend attending Winterlicious at REDs.
Winterlicious - yum!
I went to Reds Midtown 2x for Winterlicious, and both meals were amazing
Great Winterlicious Lunch
I had never been to this restaurant; however their winterlicious lunch menu was very interesting at a very good price. It was excellent in both food and service.

The nicest thing I can say was that the dessert was AMAZING.
Food came too quickly
Appetizers and mains came within 2 minutes of each other. Didn't have a chance to enjoy our appetizers and then our mains got cold. Was tempted to send back but thought we'd manage. Our table was full of plates, that did not fit. not very enjoyable. Portion size was good.
First time visiting Reds Midtown and right away we could see and feel a great vibe coming from the team of staff members. Manager dropped by to welcome us and again during the meal to make sure everything was great which it was. Service was fast and the food was very delicious. I stayed with some local beers while my wife immersed herself with their extensive Gin selection. We will definitely be going back to try their brunch at a later date. Great, fun place !
I certainly appreciate a place like this on such a tough corner in the city. I applaud the owners on that. My one complaint, and it was as soon as I sat down, was a product knowledge one. I asked the waitress (who was lovely) if the beer was "a pint", she told me it was and returned with a 14oz glass - which is not a pint (20oz.) I felt a little ripped off as the prices are those of a pint. Otherwise decent food and experience. Not over the top amazing.
The restaurant was very busy at lunch, and it was Winterlicious. I found that the menu items selected for Winterlicious were very well chosen and provided a variety of fare for lunch time. The service was friendly and we seemed to get our lunch very quickly - it was serviced hot, and quick. Except when it came to the dessert. We waited for about 20 minutes to get someone's attention and then another 10 before we got our dessert (it was pre-ordered). We received an apology, and an explanation that they were really busy with Winterlicious orders, and somehow our order info did not print in the back (? not sure if I believe that...). But where was our waitress? She was missing for most of our wait time. Not really a big deal, except that it's lunch and we had to get back to work - and we were late....The manager provided us with the explanation, and I felt that perhaps they should have done something (like 20% off the bill) to compesentate for our inconvenience. It was the first time I was there and I recommeded the place to my friends....but we took it good-naturedly. Still tipped nicely, even though alot of people would not, due to the haphazzard service. Food was great though, and would give the restaurant another chance to redeem the uneven service.

Only thing that I didn't particularly like was the abundance of "high" chairs. Prefer to dine at a place with regular size chairs and tables. Quiet enough for a conversation.
Food was tired
Popped in for a Winterlicious lunch and left disappointed. The Fatoush salad was soggy with tiny portions of each ingredient, the main of Portuguese chicken was overcooked and on a bed of leftover potatoes which were soggy. Even the dessert which would typically be the best part had flaws. The apple tart had a very runny apple topping however the crust was nice and crisp. Overall not worth the price :(
Great to dine with a girlfriend!
I dined here for Winterlicious and the server was very friendly and attentive. The value was great and the food was so tasty. Especially like the snapper main course. Crunch outside and soft and tender inside! :)
Every aspect of our meal there was fantastic! Great attentive, friendly service.
We all enjoyed our dishes from the Winterlicious menu. Good variety for people with different tastes. My only comment would be that bread should come with the soup. I had to ask for it and we were charged......
Great food and ambience
I really enjoy our dinner here. We tried winterlicious menu for $25. Food was alright, appetizer so so, chips were oily, but they gave us another batch on the side, love the short ribs for entree. And strawberry parfait was superb! Cool place to hang out.. Excellent customer service;)
Changed the menu :(
One thing i LOVED about Reds was the incredible food. Since they've changed the menu it is just another average place to go. And now the prices aren't justified when compared with the food quality. Very disappointed :(

My friend and I went directly after work before she left for vacation. Our server was delightful. We split the lobster guacamole which I always love. My favourite cocktail is now the maple bacon bourbon manhattan. When my office moves, I'm going to miss having Reds right next door.

Dining for nye
First-off, Red's has a beautiful interior, decorated very nice with an attractive bar. The service is excellent as well. However, I really feel their menu needs to be spruced up. My friend who is vegetarian, had no real options, so she had to settle for various sides, much of which were deep fried. I ordered the chicken dinner, which was literally half a chicken, a few asparagus stalks, lots of potatoes and some cooked onion; no salad was served as a side for this pretty dry meal. If you're going for drinks and appetizers only, then Red's is an excellent choice to come to!

a very nice early dinner on NYE; have been before for dinner so I know it can get noisy and I don't like shouting at dinner companions; staff were helpful, attentive - a pleasure; food was tasty.
Not best meal ever
Food was average at best and service was less than enthusiastic. We were giving the place a second chance, but doubt that there will be a third...

Reds is good, food is fine, service is good, spacious interior, however the music is too loud to be able to carry a conversation.
Tried this for the first time on a December Saturday and it was wonderful. Excellent drinks menu with amazing cocktails.

We were initially sat on the mezzanine which wasn't ideal as we were up there with a private party. Our server was great and managed to get us in the much more comfortable downstairs bar and everyone was happy! Love the gin menu, good sharing food and servers are very friendly.
Always a good time
Go to Reds fairly regularly, and it always offers a good time. Service is good, food is good, drinks are good, ambiance and decoration are good. You can't really go wrong here. Prices are staring to creep up a bit for what you get, but again, it's good. This place is a reliable crowd-pleaser.There's something for everyone: young or old, vegetarian, drinks-only, etc. It's trendy but not pretentious, busy/vibrant but not too loud, etc. Everyone in your party will be happy.
