I really liked this place. The food was really good. We had the broccoli and beef. The beef was a very tinder short rib meat. This was excellent. We had the crawfish ragoon also excellent. The shrimp fried rice was different than I liked, but...More

After hearing great things about Red’s from a few friends, my gf and I finally got a chance to try it out ourselves. Their portions are HUGE. I highly recommend going in to this place with a family-style mind set. We ordered the half portions...More

I love love love Chinese food and was sadly disappointed with this place. The focus of the place is on combining multiple flavors from different Asian cuisines. The waiter advised my husband and I to order 4 small sized portion servings to sample the menu....More

After reading the many positive reviews on TripAdvisor me and my wife decided to try this restaurant. We had driven 12 hours and were starving so anything should've tasted great. The server recommended 4 half servings to share. The only dish that didn't make me...More

Red's....where do I start? The place is very neighborhood-y, and definitely not your typical Chinese restaurant where you are going to get a scoop of fried rice, an egg roll and whatever entree you chose. That's not how it works here. At Red's the ingredients...More

First. Red's has fabulous food choices. However, it is interpreted Chinese. Decor has a few lanterns and it does not have the "standard" Chinese fare -- which is an asset. We had the Craw Rangoons and Small Buns for appetizers and then Mushu Pork and...More

So I know I’m in New Orleans and i shouldn’t expect much going to a Chinese restaurant but wow, I didn’t think it could be that poor. This attempt at fusion Chinese and Cajun is first off not really chinese but besides that my GF...More

This place is delicious! The restaurant is laid back—more neighborhood oriented. But the food is so tasty. Great mix of traditional Chinese with a Cajun creative twist! The restaurant can get a little hot towards the front since it’s near the kitchen (which is open),...More

I went here by the recommendation of Emeril Lagasee. I love chinese food and this place puts a different spin on some Chinese dishes and man does it ever work. I had the fried rice noodles which is basically a rice patty over a bed...More

I understand that this is supposed to be some Asian-Southern fusion, but this isn't even close to what Chinese food is like. Putting wasabi on mashed potatoes does not make it Asian. The wontons were literally just ravioli. Those crisps on the salad are from...More

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining

To my knowledge, they do not take reservations. But I've never had a wait.

I'm not sure, but you can always call to find out. During my visit there was no wait and my food came out pretty quickly.

I am going to go with the other reviewers comments and I would imagine that it will make for a very festive and edgy Christmas meal. Might want to get on that reservation now if you have not already done so...
