This is a relatively new restaurant in Bluffton that was formerly a wine bar. The menu is quite short with high prices and small portions. The service was attentive an professional. Not the place to go if your really hungry.More

The decor is new and excellent, and the service is outstanding. However my wife and I think the previous menu and food were much better. Her turkey sandwich tasted like "everyday lunchmeat" (her words) instead of freshly sliced turkey. My escargot was also excellent but...More

Machine-poured tastes of excellent wines were a charming way for four women friends to reunite on a Friday evening combined with attentive service and delicious food, it was an evening to cherish.

Description
The people Red attracted, they were the inspiration. The patrons of a wine boutique turned out to be people who were open to the finer experiences.

What a pleasure to fulfill their interests in fine food, good company and quality service. In rising to those requirements we found Red had become a restaurant, unique in its focus on the pleasure of an evening.

Wine was the starting point. Beyond the snobbery that once surrounded wine in America, Red let’s you explore, enjoy and fulfill your interest, your own way, using a serving instrument that’s unique to our region.

Please consider this your own invitation to join us for an evening soon.
