We were able to get a last minute reservation on a Saturday night ... and made the 25 mile drive from Mount Tremper. What a treat. The food was delicious (I had the mussels and my husband had the seafood risotto), the service excellent, the margarita I had was potent and not too sweet (yum), and the atmosphere reminiscent of...

Sorry, even though in Saugerties, it is much closer to Woodstock and my favorite in either town. The Wed Oyster night is great, but I miss Margarita night :-(

This used to be a reliable and very good restaurant. Our last two visits were extremely disappointing. We chalked the first bad experience up to just a bad night for the restaurant and thought that it was perhaps because we went mid week. We decided to take some friends with us on a weekend night and were surprised to see... More

We ate here on a recent trip to the area. Everything was high quality, including the service. I would recommend it if you are in the area. I would give The Red Onion five stars, but the food didn't blow us away. It could be perfect if they tightened it up a bit.

My boyfriend and I made a reservation at Red Onion after booking a stay at Harmony House (B&B across the road). We didn't realize it was such a short walk from where we were staying which was a pleasant surprise after a long drive up. The host greeted us with a refreshing glass of prosecco courtesy of them and our... More

I have eaten at the Red Onion about 8 times in 10+ Years and I have to say the food has always been great. To do high end food that good for that long deserves some praise. The menu is eclectic and anyone will be able to find something they like. They use the best quality ingredients combined with a... More

We started eating here not long after it opened, used to eat a here often. Over the years, the manager position seemed to turn over a number of times. The last several times it appeared there was no one in charge. On our final visit, there were six of us. Two of us ordered vanilla martinis, which my friend and... More

In Woodstock on business, and we needed a restaurant for Monday night dinner. Several places in Woodstock itself were closed (off season, I guess) but we got recommendations for Red Onion and we were not steered wrong. Very good service, attentive without being smothered. Excellent food, including the calamari in marinara that our group shared. Sauce was de-spiced at our... More

We love visiting The Red Onion for a special night out. The food and drinks are always great, and I can even find vegetarian entrees for myself. :)

Food is wonderful, service is great and the atmosphere is worth the try.. One of my favorite starters is the calamari done to perfection.
