The meals were huge and very delicious, and at Happy Hour there is a different menu with $6- entrees that fill you up entirely!

“Before the Theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

The inviting smells, and roasts on the spit warm you instantly on a cold PNW evening. Have a bite to eat, then head for the theater. Red Star will be there for a toddy afterward.

“Awesome Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

Portland has so many good restaurants that you might be loathe to dine at the one in your hotel. In this case, it is a solid choice. The food is outstanding. Excellent, friendly, attentive and informed servers. The food is really superb. We shared mussels, ceviche, Kobe Brisket and the Trout which were all outstanding. Can't go wrong here for a great meal.

“Delicious food, great ambience, top rate service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

The Red Star Tavern is the quintessential northwest restaurant, with fresh, creative dishes, plenty of choice (even for my vegetarian daughter) and professional, friendly service. Some examples of the delicious dishes we had include roast pork, ribs, ceviche and quinoa. It was festive, fun and relaxing. I would recommend the Red Star to anyone.
