Great Summerlicious 2016 lunch menu! My party ordered the crunchy Asian slaw, beet salad, manitoulin trout, chicken sandwich and the strawberry cheesecake and we all thought the food was FANTASTIC! Everything was made really well, seasoned well, plated well ... definitely recommend!

Should have vegetarian main meal options. Outside patio was a nice option but didn't quite pull it off in feeling pleasantly outdoors - for example, server could not nudge the umbrella a bit to provide more shade . Perhaps because of the outdoor seating service was very slow for a business lunch spot.

The staff from the floor manager to our server were nothing less than fantastic to our group. We were at Red's for my sister's bachelorette dinner and the staff made her feel incredibly special and absolutely celebrated from the second we walked into the restaurant. We were given a fantastic table and the service was incredibly attentive. It all made for a fantastic start to her bachelorette festivities. My sister is still raving about how great the experience was at Red's.

Food was great tasting but needed more. I had the chicken tacos but asked for seafood and got two small corn tortillas with barely any stuff on them, they were more like apps. Not impressed with size of portion. Left hungry.
I ordered the crispy roasted chicken entree for $22.95. It wasn't crispy and when I cut the chicken, it was pink. I sent it back and eventually got a replacement (which was cooked) but I honestly didn't feel like eating it at that point. I did not receive any discount for my meal. My companion enjoyed their meal but I won't be going back.
small portions but fun atmosphere
I wish that they would up their food game! The calamari portion is so small, and the mushroom side was barely a handful for $5.00. The buffalo nachos are the best things on the menu, in my opinion, and the drink list is strong. I hate those big glasses they serve the cocktails in, so awkward and clunky.
Interesting and delicious
Our server, Michael, was VERY friendly, warm, knowledgeable and attentive. He was happy to modify one of the guest's order and didn't have to ask the kitchen first.
I love this place for lunch. The food is always special and delicious.

Father's Day at Reds.............Awesome.
Our Group of Six kept our Waitress busy and she had no problem keeping all, satisfied.
Great Food, coupled with Great Service will keep us ALL coming back and often.
The Bar area is interesting and can tend to be busy; especially during a Jays Game.
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.
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.
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.
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 :(
