The Red Feather Ratings and Reviews
Chef Bernstein has a very modern, locally sourced, inventive menu. Food was excellent, service very good.Prices very good for the food quality. Portion sizes appropriate for the price. I wished I could have. Selected 3-4 more dishes. Server knew the menu well. He gave expert advice,
Will be back for sure!
We have eaten at the Red Feather many times over the past few years, but the last two times some of the food has been a bit disappointing. The most recent experience included an overcooked pork chop (ordered no more than medium and got well done). And the entrees took quite long to arrive. The other food was great, and the service other than the long wait time for the entrees was very attentive. We will probably be back with the hope that things will be back to normal.
This was great! We had to wait a bit (20 mins) before getting our table, despite the reservation, but the wait was definitely worth it. We were able to slowly dine and enjoy a variety of foods. We were taken care of very well throughout our entire time there!
We had reservations for Wednesday night to celebrate my daughter's 25th birthday.
While the food was exceptional, albeit slightly over-priced, the highlight of the evening by far was the service. Camille was genuine, friendly and knowledgeable. It was clear to everyone at our table, that she enjoyed what she was doing. My wife and I, both former servers, agreed that this was the best service we have had in years. For that reason alone, we will be back!
We dined the night before at Harvest and had a wonderful meal. We were so impressed with the quality of the food and our overall experience at Harvest that we made brunch reservations at Red Feather, their sister restaurant, for the next day. The brunch was a home run. Everything is made in house and you can feel the care put into every item.
We will definitely go back the next time we visit Cincinnati.
We have gone here at least 15 times. Always has been a good experience. Actually I called to tell them that this time it was very strange. Long story at the end of the evening our waitress brought a plain board with a candle to acknowledge our friends birthday. The food is always tasty. This evening our service just changed things
The potato gnocchi was absolutely amazing. I ended up getting the rack of lamb and it was pretty good but I will definitely be trying something out the next time I go. My wife got the scallops and she loved them. It has an upscale kind of feel and it was a great location for date night and then we followed it up with going to Mad Tree right down the street. Definitely recommend
Overall we enjoyed our dinner at Red Feather. The small plates were very good, the sweet potato agnolotti were excellent and the pork belly buns were also good. We also enjoyed the roasted olives. The entrees were less impressive, my wife enjoyed her scallops, but I found the hanger steak to be disappointing. The steak itself was chewy and just alright, and the grilled romaine was overcooked & wilted and was missing the parmesan cheese. For dessert, the ricotta fritters were amazing and went perfectly with the lemon curd. My wife's rum raisin bread pudding was good but nothing special.
The wine selection was very good, and they also have an impressive selection of dessert wines by the glass. The ambiance is great, it feels elegant but still relaxed.
Our server was generally attentive and helpful. He never served us bread and butter though, which we hadn't thought much about until we saw him bring bread to the table next to us.
The food was slow coming out. Had the froie gras special and was tasty but not unusual for a $25 app. Sever took cocktail glasses prior to drink being finished without asking. Dinner was good but again nothing worth the cost. Would try again in case we ordered incorrectly.
This was our first visit, but we most certainly will be back! The ambiance of the bar and restaurant are warm and inviting with lots of wood and ambiant lighting. I would be happy to go back, just sit at the bar and enjoy drinks and apps! We were celebrating a birthday with a party of 5 so we had a chance to sample quite a bit of the menu. We started out with the Whipped Ricotta with truffle oil and honey, a big hit with everyone; Fried chicken skins, which were crispy and in a very yummy creamy sauce (someone said if a chicken and calamari had a baby, this would be the result!); the Lobster and chorizo Arancini which came with this amazing chili paste which I enjoyed and then slathered what remained on two pieces of crostini. I could eat that paste every day!!! and finally the Potato gnocchi which was light, tasty and in another amazing sauce. I have to say, their saucework in general is amazeballz!!!! For entries we had: A) the burger, to which I cannot speak because it was ordered "plain" and all of the accompanying ingredients sound like what made it amazing; B) the gargantuan and extremely delicious pork chop (be prepared to make two meals from this bad boy!!!); C) two people split the Outlaw Cowboy steak, which I found to be good but I'm not sure it was worth the $84 price tag even split between two; D) and I had the seafood special which was a bit disappointing in its size for the $27 price tag. While the flavor of the shrimp bisque was excellent, the dish contained only 2 shrimp, 3 (one was missing from the shell) muscles, several baby shrimp and a piece of salmon that was slightly smaller than size of a credit card. The dish itself was flavorful and well cooked, and I was full from all of the apps, but again, disappointing for the price. For dessert we ended with the Tres Leches cake which was delicious; the chocolate torte which was excellent and the finally the Rum Raisen Bread Pudding which was a warm and delicious way to finish the meal.
We have dined here previously and had good experiences, however our experience on Saturday was bad enough that we will likely not be back. The food was bland and not cooked how we requested (meat significantly over or under cooked and requests related to a gluten allergy were not followed). Also, the time between the first course and the second course was over an hour. We sat down at 8:15 and our entrees didn't come until 10:15. Lastly, there was a ventilation issue with the kitchen and all of our coats and clothes wreaked of kitchen smoke when we left and now need to be laundered and or dry cleaned before they are wearable due to the smell.
What an amazing restaurant! We found Red Feather just by searching on the internet for something different to try, and we could not be more pleased. This is definitely now in our top 5 favorite restaurants in Cincinnati! The service was absolutely outstanding. We had requested the chef's table and the group before us was running late. They offered the option to wait or take another table; we waited and it was worth it. What a great experience to see how a top-notch kitchen is run! Everyone from the hostesses to the bar staff to the wait staff were perfect. Then, the food. Oh, the food. Hot fresh bread straight from the oven, refreshed as needed. The beet salad was exquisitely perfect. The foie gras special was excellent, although maybe just a few too many flavors in one dish. Main dishes of trout special and scallops were also completely fabulous, and we finished off with amazing desserts. We are very picky (snobby) restaurant goers who compare everything to our years in Europe, and this restaurant was right up there with the best on the continent. Looking forward to introducing all our friends to Red Feather!!!
I would've given a more favorable review if we would have received an apology for the smoke in the restaurant which was almost too much to stand. It felt awkward that our server didn't even acknowledge the obvious situation. The service was wonderful other than the elephant in the room no one wanted to bring up. Our clothes smelled of smoke well after our dinner. I did write an email and received an apology at that point, but it seemed crazy that we weren't offered an explanation during dinner.
