Description: Nourish your appetite with Luna Red’s tantalizing mix of tapas, European staples and global creations. From house-cured duck prosciutto and local goat cheese, to tapas that include such gems as stuffed piquillo peppers or arancini balls, served with local mushrooms, leeks and a tomato jam— and those are just the starter plates. For an entrée, you’ll have a hard time deciding—we offer dishes from around the world such as Portuguese seafood stew with housemade chorizo or Korean style short ribs with housemade kimchee. We have something for every discerning palate. Each selection combines a perfect balance of flavors and represents a kaleidoscope of cuisines. Warm yourself. Delight in luna red.

I admit that Happy Hour (all week long) is a good time to try the local flavors in $5 "tapas" (small dishes) and a fun place to people watch. My tastes for wine do not allow me to order the 'well' wine red, although it is pretty ok otherwise. However, if it's warm and beer is in good form, they... More

My second visit, and another excellent meal. Lots of good things to say about this place. Saturday night and no reservation either time. First time we got seated right away, second time we had to wait no more than 30 mins. Nice varied menu, Tapas with a nod to Mexicali. Great ceviche platter, lamb meatballs, wonderful tacos, heirloom tomatoes, braised... More

Wonderful food and a great environment across from the mission and on the creek. A Spanish twist and worth the stop if in SLO.

We had a selection of cold and hot tapas and someone in the kitchen has a vivid imagination, mixing flavours and textures in unusual combinations that worked. We finished with Mexican donuts and a spicy hot chocolate.

Great atmosphere and a terrific owner who is often there! Good food, we sat outside but I have been inside before - I prefer the outside cause I love the European feeling with the creek side not so far away.

Great spot in downtown SLO. Food was amazing along with the atmosphere. Outdoor seating is wonderful and the outdoor bar area has a cozy fire pit. Very romantic evening spot. Enjoy!!!

This was our first time experiencing tapas dining in the US (we had tapas once before in Barcelona), and we were not disappointed! We were seated in the comfortable outdoor patio area with the 4 of us and 2 dogs, and were treated to an assortment of tapas plates and a bottle of Pinot Grigio. We ordered the calamari, Jidori...
