Searching for another “tripadvisor suggesting restaurant”, we found Red by chance. Wondering how it was, we asked for a dinner for 2 (no reservation earlier) and we were lucky. We weren’t familiar with the concept, so we asked for the menu in English and the very friendly staff explained us why they don’t have an English menu; Just Steak and... More

This is a very warm. lovely room with comfortable seating and good service. They only have beef and lobster, but both were excellent. They also had our favorite Chilean wine--an added plus. I love this neighborhood, too. Our best meal in Amsterdam and I recommend it highly.

Loved this place. The tenderloin beef is maybe one of the best i have ever had. Tasted the lobster as well, and this was good. Super nice place, but hard to find. You really need the address and a good map or gps (bring your iPhone). Be sure to book a table as i witnessed many people trying to get... More

It's no mean feat finding a good meal, let alone steak, in Amsterdam so discovering Red was like entering restaurant nirvana. The steak is excellent (bernaise is lovely); the choices are limited ( lobster or steak) so this makes for more conversation time and less pawing the menu trying to decide; the service is excellent ( again no mean feat...

We walked past Red on several occasions wondering what it was and what they served as there are no signs externally and no menus visible to the public. The front door has a 6ft lamp on it and on entering you are met with velvet drapes from celing to floor. Staff were very friendly but maybe a little stretched as... More

Great place if you are into lobster, as it is one of the few places where you don't have to spend a small fortune to have it, besides, often enough you do get lobster but in a very old-fashioned place. At RED you can only choose between Tournedos of Beef and Canadian Lobster, both are served traditionally with home made... More

Would highly recommended it to lobster lovers. Also steak did look very good too. Would love to go back. Decor was very... More

Nice place. Almost classy. Casual dress is fine. Very inviting. My group was very tried from our journey, walked by the restaurant and thought it looked good. But Steak and Lobster only, so the menu is brief and very awkward if you don't eat the stuff. Not for beer drinkers as they have only one beer on tap which is... More

This place delivers great steaks and fries with great wine. Really enjoyed my two visits at this restaurant (one of them was with 4 colleagues who also thoroughly enjoyed it). If you want steak in Amsterdam, this one is a very good option!

We enjoyed our final meal of our stay in Amsterdam at RED. The menu is simple - bread to start followed by either Lobster or Steak (or both, surf and turf). The restauraunt was very comfortable and the food was simply divine. The dessert menu was also very nice, as was the wine list. Maybe slightly on the expensive side... More
