We selected this restaurant based on its Trip Advisor rating. It took two days to obtain a reservation and that was for the 8:30 pm seating. The hostess who took our reservation was very accommodating regarding our party's food allergies and seemed caring and knowledgeable. When we arrived the restaurant was crowded and quite noisy with patrons really enjoying themselves.... More

Reserved evening for family(7) to gather to have one last memory of our Maine trip. Two of our group had food allergies so they needed specific preparations to be guaranteed. Called ahead to get all planned- and their food was perfectly prepared and showed great attention to details! But it was the rest of us 5 that got the outstanding... More

We went to Red Sky for the first time last weekend, and we were very impressed. Food was creative, and beautifully presented. Service was outstanding! Wine list very good, it was a home run from beginning to end! We both had seafood and it was so good! I recommend this to anyone -- leave the hustle & bustle of Bar... More

It is always satisfying to return to a restaurant each year and find it still at the top of its game. We had the freshest salad, a polenta and vegetable appetizer, and baby back ribs. Nothing exceptional perhaps but everything most enjoyable. Service is friendly. The room is not overly noisy and there is no music. We will be back... More

This was our third visit to Red Sky, and by far the most disappointing. Our prior visits were a couple of years ago. In a nutshell...the salmon mousse 'free appetizer' was tasteless. The beet soup was nice to look at but had no flavor. The salads were poorly dressed. The waiter had no knowledge of the wine list and had... More

We love to eat local foods and Red Sky focuses on that. The ingredients were all fresh and attention was made to telling us where they are from. Every dish was light and different, and the flavors and ingredients were combined in a unique way. Service was excellent as well-very knowledgeable. Reservations needed

We loved the duck salad which was huge and fabulous. We shared one. My husband had the special that evening, a delicious sole preparation. It was one of the finest fish entrees he ever had. I enjoyed the lobster risotto with mushrooms and pencil thin asparagus enormously. The waitstaff was beautifully trained and attentive without being overbearing. The prices were... More

I had the ravioli; my husband had the lamb appetizer and then a duck dish as the main. He will not stop talking about this restaurant! The flavours in the food melded together to provide immense flavour. The staff was wonderful, their wine suggestion awesome, and the atmosphere was welcoming. Just an incredible restaurant. Make a reservation, because others have... More

This what right up there with anywhere we have ever dined, and we have dined in many places and countries. The entrees of the attached halibut and the lobster risotto were true perfection. The place looks non discreet from the outside, we would have passed it by except for previous trip advisor reviews. If you are in this town, go... More

We had the good fortune to dine twice in a week at Red Sky. Both dinners were excellent. The wine specials were well chosen, well priced, and excellent. The menu carries some dishes from year to year so we have seen some of these in prior years but the quality of execution and service make this a fine experience. Since... More
