Reservation

We couldn't go to this restaurant since we had no reservation when we asked at 18.00 pm. Especially at the weekend all good restaurants ask for reservation and if you don't have any they confirm after 22.00 pm:(

Since this restaurant has a limited menu they do an excellent job in preparing the food. I had the surf and turf and the meal was delicious. The lemon pie for desert was also very good.

When my boyfriend asks me where I want to go for dinner then RED is always the answer! The lobster is delicious, french fries are tastefull and the wines (italian prosecco!) are fantastic! Simply my favorite restaurant of Amsterdam! A place we absolutely advice you to visit.

They only serve steak and lobster here. We lived the food. The wait staff was wonderful and the environment of the Resturant was cozy and so inviting. We kinda thought it was cool they only served 2 things on their menu

We dined at Red last week while visiting Amsterdam. Lovely setting and great location. However, if you are only going to have two entrees - lobster or filet- I think they should be fantastic. Our dinners were pretty underwhelming. Lobsters tails were very small and filet's were flavorless. Salad and fries served with each entree were tasty but we seemed... More

We visited this restaurant on our first night after reading the trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The restaurant only cook steak or lobster or both. We chose the surf and turf which is accompanied by fantastic crispy chips and a wonderful flavoursome salad. The service was also very good and friendly. This would have got 5 stars... More

I had a fantastic time here. We had the whole lobster with a bottle of Chardonnay, and the chocolate tart with blue cheese for dessert. Superb. The decor and relaxed atmosphere completes a great dining experience. The ambiance could be argued is a product of the lack of decision making required on the menu which results in the eradication of... More

We sat at the one table by the window on the canal. Very attentive service. Warm bread, bottle of wine, lobster served first then tenderloin - delicious. Served with the best french fries ever and salad. Extremely reasonable at 90 euros. Treat yourself to Red.

Red is a stylish sophisticated yet laid back Lobster and steak restaurant. I ordered the surf and turf and was amazing. The steak was cooked perfectly and was one of the best I have had. The lobster was gorgeous and the meal came with dip fries and salad. For desert I ordered the chef suprise, which didn't disappoint. The service... More
