Located in a converted red house, the Red House cafe is a delightful place to enjoy a dinner while in Pacific Grove. We called at 5:00 pm to reserve a table for 6:30 the same day. No problem. We were greeted upon arrival and seated right away in the former living room. The place is not crowded and provides a... More

We had come here on a Sunday at 5pm, after finding the Beach House Restaurant packed to the rafters, and no open reservations available. They call it the Red House Restaurant, because it is a restaurant inside of a house, with four separate rooms for eating. Every time we had come by here for an early lunch, the place had... More

Sunday morning breakfast. Waited for only 5 mins. We sat outside in the beautiful sun and the service was fast and friendly. My husband and I ordered mochas and OMG, they were HUGE. So was my son's hot cocoa. They were sweet enough to put the rest in togo cups for us. Breakfast was perfect and so YUMMY (Hubby had... More

We went for dinner on a Saturday evening without a reservation, maybe that was the problem. After waiting about 20 minutes, we were o#ered a table out on the porch by a wall heater. We accepted so we could eat. We saw the inside for approximately 2 minutes so can't review that. We had ordered the special that was wonderful... More

We arrived in PG late on a Friday night, and saw that they were open - what the heck, let's give ti a try. The food was very good, the portions respectable, and the service was prompt. The restaurant was clean and the bathrooms presentable. Definitely on my list of places to visit in Pacific Grove.

I've been here three times over ten years, and every time the food has been excellent. Sort of haute-cuisine-ish but not pretentious. The one warning is that the space is a little crowded, and there can be quite a wait!

We had a wonderful experience tonight! The food was outstanding and the environment was great. Service was on point as well! My friend and I are vegetarian so it's hard to find meals that are in that category and delicious. We definitely plan on returning to the Red House Café for more great food and memories!

Although the food was tasty, this is not a very hospitable place. They would not let us enjoy a cup of coffee after we were done with our breakfast. This was rather rude. Moral of the story, wait until you are completely done before paying.

Charming, if you like rustic settings. Original fare, especially good for breakfast or lunch. Consistently high standards of cooking and service.
