We went here based on the reviews read on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Red only serves lobster or steak. This was not a problem for us! We both had lobster to start followed by steak. Both courses were absolutely delicious. We shared a chocolate cake for dessert which again was spectacular. For a bottle of wine, 2 starters,... More

Some restaurants makes things very easy for you. This one has a small menu, so choosing a dish is a breath. You can enjoy your meal in a French bistro like atmosphere. Friendly staff and good service. Because this is a popular restaurant making reservations is recommended.

A very comfortable, stylish restaurant. You do need to like Lobster and or Beef as there are no other alternatives. Just fine for us on this night. Very large back lighted mural on the ceiling sets the tone, there is an elegance and definite style here. Located on a corner just at a little canal bridge it looks enchanting from... More

We had the great pleasure to book a table at Restaurant RED for Christmas Eve dinner, and we were not disappointed. This is truely a must when visiting Amsterdam, if you are in for good food, and nice atmosphere, and good food. They did not have a "Special Xmas Menu" (thanks all gods for that) but their ordinary menu, from... More

When we arrived there of course we ordered a beautiful Moët Chandon. Then we ordered lobster as was a concept, but unfortunately it was a bit small, so than we all 4 ordered a steak which was amazing choice. So my advice don't go for lobster in the beginning (is a bit expensive) go for rear steak :) I am... More

Basically its surf and turf and almost nothing else. We knew this when we decided to go so that was fine. Both the lobster and the filet were pretty good, but I've had better. I wish the filet was grilled instead of pan seared, but thats a personal preference. I wanted my steak medium, but it was barely medium rare.... More

Each year we come over to Amsterdam (sometimes several times per year), and for the past 4 years have made a point of coming to RED for dinner. This year as usual we had made our reservation a month in advance and were looking forward to it. We were welcomed by a friendly waitress who showed us to our seat,... More
