Seriously good food – My boyfriend and I love this place. We have been there three years in a row for Valentine's Day. The menu is a bit small, but we haven't had a bad dish yet. The steak stroganoff sounds like a weird idea, but trust me- it is fantastic. In addition, the service is always good.
On a side note, I have found coupons for this place (pay $50 for a $100 coupon) so search the internet to find them as they are worth it!
Just okay – I chose this place because it looked interesting, but the service was so bad I didn't stick around One thing that really bugged me about it was I had to ask for more vodka and the bartender acted like he was doing me a favor by serving me. When I got up to use the restroom I came back to my seat at the bar and the bartender had piled up dirty glasses and dishes in front of my stool and made no effort to move these as I sat back down, so I drank my vodka quickly and left. I headed over to 1515 on Market and was treated like a king there. Too bad I really like the horseradish infused vodka but I doubt I'll go back, the service was so bad I didn't bother to try the food. After reading all the bad reviews here it doesn't sound like I missed anything.
Best bar in Denver – The Red Square is a classy little "Euro bistro" tucked away in the corner of Writer's Square. All of their vodka infusions, especially the pineapple, are delicious!! They look and taste innocent but pack a p unch- they don't kick in right away, so watch out or you'll be stumbling home. These shots are best sipped, not shot! The setting is intimate and the crowd is relaxed and friendly. The Red Square is a gem!
Fun atmosphere, ok service, food was lacking – Dined here for restaurant week. The selections look fabulous on the menu.
I agree with a previous reviewing, the front Desk fella was indeed less than friendly. Our waitress was adequate. We went with wine instead of vodka and the glasses were small. I chose the seared scallops and the centers were cold. My co-diner went with the mushroom and onion soup and you could actually see the grease. We decided to each get a different entree and split them. She did the NY strip, I did the salmon. The steak was overcooked and chewy, the salmon was ok, but whatever sauce was on it smelled BAD. The berry desert was tasty. All in the food left every much to be desired. I might go back for the flavor infused vodka, but probably would just go to Purple Martini if I was over in that direction of town. I?d save your money and find some place else to eat.
Over salted and fell below expectations – We were disappointed. The menu had some interesting plusses - the borscht was very good and the lemon tart for dessert was okay (almost too tart). The main entrees were both over salted and over sauced, not to mention that I ordered duck and received chicken, and it was left on the bill. It's a cute atmosphere though, & the waiter was very nice in spite of the screw up, but overall it just fell short of expectations.
Not quite there – My boyfriend and I where out on a date night and decided to try something new. We had read good things about The Red Square. The atmosphere was cozy and the service was friendly. The servers where celebrating Russian Halloween as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
I love the idea of individual carafes of vodka from around the world, and our server was fairley knowledgeable and helpful when it came to makeing a selection. The vodka was very good.
We ordered the cheese selection, which did not come with enough bread for the cheese portion. I found that the entrees where equally as disapointing. The Strogonough was gloppy and overwelming when paired with the steak, and the sea bass was salty. The swiss chard felt tough and overwhelmed the flavor of the dish.
Fotunatly enough the prices where reasonable., so I only left with a bad tast in my mouth and not a hole in my pocket.
A Wonderful Restaurant tucked away in Downtown Denver – I was introduced to it last fall by my boyfriend. Depending on which side of the restaurant you choose to sit, you get a completely different experience. The left barside is a lively vodka bar and on the right side dining area you experience a small Russian bistro. I love the salmon stroganoff, the mustard based salad dressing, and the wonderful bread. Oh, the vodka selection is amazing when you are in the mood for a good vodka shot or an entire carafe of vodka to share. I really love the Red Square, is is delicious, romantic, and lively.
Great food at very reasonable prices, and fun too! – My husband and I just moved to LoDo, and were anxious to try Red Square, as we walk by it all the time. So we made a reservation, and as soon as we walked in the door, we knew we had discovered a special place. The staff was courteous and professional without being stuffy, and they were all smiling and happy--a sign of a good restaurant in my book. We had heard about the house-made flavored vodkas, so we started our meal with shots of raspberry vodka: delicious! As for the food, for appetizers I had the goat cheese and tomato salad, the perfect combination of fresh tomato and warm, comforting goat cheese drizzled with balsamic dressing. My husband had the scallops, which were seared to perfection and came with artichoke hearts and crispy garlic. We had a tough time deciding on our entrees, as everything on the menu looked good. I finally chose the salmon, and my husband went for the duck. Our waiter helped us pick out a great bottle of wine to go with our meal. My salmon was fabulous, and my husband enjoyed his duck, although it was bit rich and heavy for the hot summer weather. We were too full to order dessert, but the table next to us had a lemon tart that looked amazing--we can't wait to go back and try it! The only negative thing we experienced was that toward the end of our meal, the bar started to get quite full and noisy--it was a Friday night, after all, but if we had made our reservation for earlier, that wouldn't have been a problem. Overall, we had a great meal with great wine, and didn't cringe when the bill came; everything was very reasonably priced. We will definitely go again!
Hard bread, bitter wine and awful food – My wife and I are new to the city. Many people recommended the food of the place and everytime we walked by it had a crowd. They seated us in the patio and brought old, hard bread. We ordered wine by the glass. It was very vinegary, couldn't finish it. And finally, the steak stroganoff (supposedly a specialty of the house). The cut was not good. Full of fat and very hard. Bad experience. We are not going back ever again
Great Place – A group of friends and I went to this resturant for a birthday dinner, and manged to have th whole restuarant to ourselves. The food was fantastic, service was great and the wait staff was very helpful. Now we have visited this resturant prior to this and the service was good then as well. I recommend the Red Square Strognoff which is a great twist to what you expect strogonoff to be. A nice NY strip steak with a mushroom gravy and mashed potatoes. The ambience in the restuarant is wonderful as well its romantic, not loud at all and a perfect setting for a date. I recommend the pineapple vodka it has a suprisingly wonderful taste at the end of a great dinner.
