This was our fourth visit in ten years and I confess I was disappointed. Perhaps because we'd been "wowed" on previous visits? Maybe. The kitchen has been updated since our last visit and the bar and dining room have been restructured..all to the good. The food was top shelf and made it worth the trip to the West End of town. The speedbumps were in the ambiance and service. I'm an older guy, but still can read without glasses..but I can't read without light and even the dinky little candle (that eventually arrived from the next table) didn't throw enough light to read the menu. Then there was the up-tempo music hulking about above the din. There are no drapes or carpeting, so noise tends to be a tad louder than one might expect in an upscale place. (I have also been there when light jazz was providing a nice backdrop and was perfect). Then there was the service. Perhaps the summer crew had all bailed and the replacements were getting their feet wet...but our server was clearly disinterested in what he was doing. It took him fifteen minutes to take our meal order after he delivered our drink order. Perhaps by design? Sorry, we decided not to have a second round...although that might have made me a bit more mellow. I'll accept that perhaps we caught the Red Inn on an "off" night., because we have dined there when they have exceeded expectations....but we are going to think twice before heading back.
