This is a very small restaurant that also does take out so unless you get there early expect a wait. On the other hand, it is worth the wait. The food is fresh, delicious and reasonably priced. Plenty of parking available on the surrounding streets.

I am not a vegetarian or vegan. I am not big on this type of food. My wife absolutely loves this place and wants to eat there often. I have had good food but it is not my first choice.

Big carnivore, but didn't need meat tonight. Great alternatives with creative recipes that are great for sharing. Nice little atmosphere and great selection of beer/ciders/wine.

Amazing food! I had the paella, and tasted my friend’s shepherds pie (possibly even better than the paella!). Some of the best vegetarian food I’ve had!

Disclaimer: This review is highly unfair. All I've really had here is the eponymous soup, that is, the red lentil. Having lived for ten years in Turkey, I make a mean red lentil soup myself. The one here is good, not fabulous. There are not...More

I love this restaurant and was there recently with some out-of-town visitors. We loved the food (I haven't visited in a long time, so it was time to return to this place.) I really enjoyed the salad (although, I made a mistake by choosing the...More

Red Lentil is unique to Watertown and the surrounding area. We provide a warm atmosphere in which to enjoy creative and globally inspired vegetarian and vegan foods. Our aim is to please every customer that walks through our door. Our menu items are of the finest quality and are treated as such. They are prepared with sensitivity and care. Daily specials are offered at lunch, dinner, and brunch. They are built around produce that is currently in season in New England, which allows our chefs to exercise their creative whims. We strive to meet the needs of special diets, offering gluten-free, raw, and macrobiotic selections. We take great care to avoid any traces of gluten in our gluten-free dishes as we recognize the severity of celiac disease. We are committed to having special equipment for these offerings. Our dessert line is baked in-house to ensure freshness and features a wide range of vegan and gluten-free dessert options.
