One of our favourite restaurants in the world......

I understand that everyone has off days and this platform is to average many many reviews of one location so everyone may not love RED. I LOVE RED. We have been very fortunate to eat in local pubs, through to two Michelin star restaurants and RED still remains one of our favs in the world. Cosy and... read more

To tell you the truth, I am not crazy about steak. Or lobster. Well, tough luck - these are the two things served at RED... Nevertheless, I decided to go, as the restaurant was highly recommended by my friends. Guess what - I LOVE steak now. RED redefined it for me. It was so incredibly tasty, delicate, but full of...

Ok so after reading many of the glorious reviews here about Red my wife and I decided to choose Red as the restaurant we would celebrate our first wedding anniversary at. I will also say that I usually don't critique a restaurant but thought I should give an honest opinion of Red. This is the first restaurant review I've ever... More

The food was excellent, but the service was a tad pretentious. We visited RED since it was within walking distance from the Andaz and had pretty good reviews. The decor was very nice and the food was awesome. We did feel the server was a tad snooty and did not make us feel too welcome. Funny thing is that I... More

At RED they have a very limited menu; basically it's lobster or steak. They do both to perfection! The steak was without doubt one of the finest I've ever eaten, the lobster was fantastic too. . . It is a bit pricey compared to some other restaurants near by, but we'll worth the extra.

This restaurant was recommended to us while we were in Amsterdam. We were celebrating a birthday and wanted something special. It's strange as there is only two items on menu and I had never experienced this. I choose the lobster and the others chose the steak. Both were fantastic. We drank a couple bottles of prosecco too. I'd return again... More

Starter: Glorious and simple freshly baked bread with butter and oil. You can tell that they make it themselves. It was wonderful. Main Course: My partner had steak(rare) and lobster, and I had just steak (rare). Served with caesar salad and chips. It was the most beautiful meal I have ever had in my life, honestly. Words fail!

I dined at Red in June 2015 (22nd, I think) with my wife, youngest son (23) and his longtime gf. Our meal was so fantastic. Red offers beef tenderloin with bernaise sauce and lobster. That is all they offer. Its all they need to offer. Both prepared really well. If you want a starter, they have caviar. they also have... More

This is kind of an unusual concept and takes a while to get used to but there really isn't a menu per se. You can order 3 things -- 1) steak, 2) lobster or 3) steak and lobster. We also got a salad, I can't recall if that came with the entree or we ordered separately. We both chose the... More
