“Good Food Slightly Pretentious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

These guys have pretty good food, I recommend the Scallops. The pricing is high and the staff is a little stuffy. Great place to bring Grandma.

“Outstanding dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Recently visited the Red Onion and was beyond pleased with our dining experience. We were immediately greeted and seated. Our waitress promptly appeared to bring water and bread and ask for our drink order. We then ordered the split pea with bacon & thyme soup which arrived piping hot...a generous serving....so tasty. I ordered the seafood risotto that was perfectly prepared with ample amounts of scallops, shrimp, mussels, and calarmari. I must say that it was the best risotto I have ever eaten. My husband ordered their gourmet hamburger.....this was not a mere hamburger .ample size....made to order with a homemade bun and fresh french fries. We were so full....no room for dessert.
All in all a wonderful dinner in an appealing atmosphere.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Everything about this restaurant was perfect: the food, the service, and the ambience. Wish we lived closer so that we could return more often.

“Steak!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

I had one of the best steaks I've had in my life here. Locally raised NY Strip, perfectly cooked with salt and pepper. My companion's lamb chop was good but a little unevenly cooked. Very nice place, worth a visit! Make reservations!
