Came here for a steak and it was absolutely delicious, no fatty meat and cooked to perfection. The waitress was friendly, rose wine was very nice and atmosphere was good. Only slight down fall is that you can only pretty much order steak or lobster. Very small choice, however I knew this was the case prior to my visit and... More

A must do every time we are in Amsterdam --- fabulous surf and turf and an excellent wine list. Reserve in advance because the place is always FULL!

My husband and I, along with another couple, spent Valentine's night here in 2014. It was perfect! The service, the atmosphere, and that LOBSTER! yum! We all had steak and lobster and were very satisfied. Although, if we go back I will probably only get lobster as the steak was good, but slightly lacking flavor. It is a romantic place,... More

Every time we are in Amsterdam we can't miss to visit RED! Absolutely amazing place, fantastic food and atmosphere! Serving lobster and stake! One of my favourite. And close to RED there is Piano Bar with live music, where you can dance. Highly recommended!

Red offers two options for food - lobster or steak. Limiting? Yes, but with a touch of brilliance. The steaks are amazing, lobsters well prepared, sides filling. The restaurant is very romantic, wonderfully located (seats with a view of a canal possible) and the service is always polite. Even the bathrooms are great! My only complaint is that when it...

Red truly is a great place to visit...very nice and simple interior, I really like the dark ambient atmosphere and colour scheme. They have great wines, it is pretty easy to decide from the menu since they have just two main courses, fries with mayonnaise are a MUST. Staff was always nice, helpful and attentive. One of the places we... More

We did had a great time during our visit at Red. The prosecco we had was really nice and the warm bread with butter was nice. The menu is simple Surf&Turf. We choose to have as entree half lobster each which was really nicely cooked and we enjoyed it. The wine by glass was also nice and value for money.... More
