    Very nice. The atmosphere is mellow, the service is great, and the small plates are just right when you want to eat something but not pig out. The merlot was heavenly. I want to go back for breakfast.

  2. Schu says:

    I found this place to be completely unimpressive in terms of its service and food/drink offerings. To boot, the decor is rather scattered (and not in any kind of artistic or positively funky way). Sadly, the surroundings are more akin to grandmother’s unused living room.

  3. Penny says:

    I like. Nice option for a glass of wine and small plate(s) with a friend. I’ll be back.

  4. Diana says:

    Met a group of parents here (my first time) they had a back room that was large enough to accommodate 10+ people comfortably. Enjoyed my wine and the small plates were great to share!

  5. Ladybird says:

    Great addition to the neighborhood.
    Friendly service, tasty apps, decent wine at affordable price, funky casual space.

    We–three adults and a somewhat-picky 13-year-old–were delighted with our food, drink and total tab this Saturday. Bacon-wrapped dates and really, really good hummus were the standouts, but we made quick and enthusiastic work of a couple of bruschetta orders, olives, salads, and some other things I’m forgetting. I think Red has improved with time.

    Excellent experience there tonight.
    Quiet & cozy– mis-matched furniture, local art & tasty tapas.
    Small but good selection of affordable wines by the glass.
    Desserts by A La Mode- yum.
    Friendly proprietor.
    My new fave neighborhood restaurant.
