We had a wonderful dinner at Red Sky, starting with well-crafted cocktails, excellent range of appetizers, and a plentiful choice of main courses featuring local seafoods and naturally raised meats. Service was very pleasant and professional, plus a nicely priced and varied wine list. Can't wait for our next dinner here.

Being from the Pacific NW we had to research peekytoe crab. Very good dish, but we are partial to Dungeness. Rib eye steak was also very good. Great service and quiet enough to easily converse with our table mates. Reservations are necessary.

We went to Red Sky late in October and had heard great things. It's small and but the food was outstanding. Had a reservation and still were seated 20 minutes late. Amazingly stayed busy on entire visit-despite 3 definite table turns. Great whiskey selection (try basil hayden or bullet). Excellent ribeye steak and Lobster Risotto main courses (try the quail...

We were looking forward to our visit to the Red Sky having heard good things about it. The Lady who greeted us was nice as was the waitress. Our table was very close to the couple next to us, it isn't a big room and It is noisy. The wine was good and fairly priced. The salads were good. My... More

I was excited to try this place considering all the great reviews! I was unfortunately disappointed! The ambiance was nice and the service at first seemed good but it did not stay that way. The server acted upset with us that we wanted to relax and take our time! She seemed annoyed that we wanted to enjoy our appetizer before... More

I am sorry you were disappointed with your visit and the service. We are horribly understaffed ( lost 4 employees after Columbus Day) and unexpectedly busy for this time of year. If you were here during the past week then you definitely did not receive the full Red Sky service and I apologize for that. We are consistently praised for... More

Visited a couple of times and enjoyed the food. Wine list good but pricy. Service arbitrary. Location downtown Southwest Harbor so no view.

We had to book in advance to get in and it was September (not high season) and even then had to wait close to half an hour before being seated. While this did not get the place off to the best start the subsequent food and service more than made up for this. The lobster with risotto and asparagus was... More
