Food, once received once good. But service was slow, they forgot to bring appetizers, and never came back to ask if we needed more drinks. Restaurant itself is quite nice.

Very disappointed in our visit to Red's. First, the restaurant did not credit me for my OpenTable reservation. I ordered the flash roasted chicken which was ok but the potatoes were way too seasoned and inedible and the broccoli was mushy. My daughter had the burger and she stated it was ok. Really felt like the server just wanted to move us in and out. Overall just not impressed with Red's and will not be on my list to come back to when visiting Toronto.

The service was quick and attentive which was perfect for a workplace outing. We chose from the pixe-fixe menu which was excellent. I would highly recommend the Ahi Tuna Tostadas.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Reds Midtown.

Great experience, dinner to share was amazing! Plenty of food for four. Ribs are some of the best I’ve had. Apple pie is also quite good! Nice vibe and great service! Would definitely recommend!

Great food and service. Sat out on the street level patio which was nice for the evening. Only downfall is there can be loud trucks idling at the nearby stop light.

If you eat here - do not sit on the patio. While it is nice to sit outside, the corner is far too noisy with ambulance, fire truck, and construction trucks on the go. We had to keep stopping our conversation every few minutes to let the offending vehicle pass.

Absolutely wonderful!! Went with a few friends to have some drinks, food and enjoy game 6 of the raptors vs warriors. The vibe was amazing. The food was a rag pricey. But overall a very nice place.

Loved the service and the food.
Perfect place for a special 30th b'day.
Recommend Salmon BiBimBap, Lobster Guac, and Bankok Nachos.
And leave room for dessert: chocolate cake and cheesecake.

Very pleasant evening. We were seated in a quiet area as per our request and lucked into the Tuesday special of half price bottles of wine. Both of us had prix fixe meals -- nice food, good value and great service. We will be back and will definitely recommend to friends.

Our dinner was early at 6:15pm and when we arrived, we were led to the back of the restaurant. It was my first time at the restaurant and I will go back because it was a good place to have a quiet dinner and be able to chat. Service was great and food too.

Food and service was great. We had a table of 9 people and our reservation was at 6:30pm. A few of us got there on time and our server came and asked us if we wanted to start off with drinks and appetizers while waiting for the rest of our friends. By then, it was 6:45pm. We ordered some beer and appetizers off the main menu, but then realized that there was a separate menu for happy hour specials. I feel that our waiter could have mentioned this to us and bring this our attention about "happy hour" specials, even though that there's 15 min. left to 7pm. We also had to ask about the "pre-fix" menu as this was not listed on the main menu. If we did not do our research online, we would not have know that there is a "pre-fix" menu. In summary, our waiter was friendly and great, but he could have mentioned that there are "happy hour" specials and provided us with the "pre-fix" menu course listing without us asking about it.

The food and service was great! Apple Pie is a must have for dessert. And if you are vegetarian the cauliflower steak and beet salad are great choices. My only complaint would be to not get a drink with liquor. There were 4 of us dining and all were not happy with our drinks. We had a gin and tonic, rum and coke, and a vodka soda and we could barely taste the alcohol. We also had a basil hayden on the rocks and the shot barely filled the bottom of the glass. So stick to wine!

But still giving this place 5 stars as the food/service was amazing! We actually went back the next night as we enjoyed it so much.

The highlights of the restaurants are the decor and the food. The prices were fair too.

But honestly, given the atrocious service I can not recommend this restaurant.

Excellent service. Delicious food. The most generous full rack of ribs I've ever had. The We are visitors from the UK and received a warm welcome. Would definitely eat there again if we ever go to Toronto again.

To Whom It May Concern:

We visited your restaurant on Saturday, April 6, 2019 for dinner prior to attending a show as a special occasion. We arrived early for a reservation scheduled for 5:15pm by about 10 minutes prior. The hostess wanted to seat us near to the front but we do prefer the back area where there is less noise. The hostess was not aware if seating in the back area was available as she needed to confirm there was wait staff attending the area. After confirming, she escorted us to our table. When we arrived, we noticed there were at least two other tables occupied so we were perplexed as to how the hostess was not aware that the area was not already available for seating patrons.

 

The waiter who attended us was Akhil who was quite amiable and polite yet very quick to outline the daily drink special. However, due to the noise level and his quick speaking, we did have troubles understanding him entirely. Additionally, he did come to us a few times as we were deciding on our beverage choices.

 

After having placed our order, our food arrived very quickly and was exemplary as always. We have not had a disappointing meal there yet. After Akhil took away our dinner plates, he was quick to deliver dessert menus and take our order. This too arrived quickly and was thoroughly enjoyed. After dessert and having finished our coffee, Akhil did ask if we wanted refills on our coffee to which we declined and he removed the dishes from our table but did not ask if we wanted anything else, this was around 6:00pm.

 Until this time, the service was quite satisfactory but we then had to wait about 40 to 45 minutes before Akhil came back to us after flagging him so we could get our bill. Moreover, there were a number of wait staff, including whom I believe to be a manager of sort, attending customers on both sides of our table, none of whom took the opportunity to ask us if we needed anything or if we were being looked after.

 Given the quality of food (and

Quick, knowledgable and friendly server. Tasty and enjoyable burger and fries for a quick casual dinner with a friend, who also liked the place, service and food. I can see why it's packed with customers even with its huge size. Good range on the menu. 1/2-price bottles of wine on MTW is a great marketing idea.
