This was my second trip to the Red Onion, which I have previously highly recommended. This time I was very disappointed in how they handled our dinner experience. Eating there as a three-some we ordered a variety of dishes for a family style feast, as expected everything was excellent... except as we shared the seafood risotto we found one of... More

I did a solo trip to The Red Onion and ate at the bar. Around me everyone - locals and visitors alike - were tucking in to delicious classic bistro fare. I enjoyed the arugula salad starter and chicken main course even though tarragon is never my favourite for a sauce flavour! The service is good, the wine list is... More

We like the onion for it's consistently good food. A rustic place that's comfortable with a nice menu. We do often roll our eyes at some staff who can b a bit pretentious. Reservations are necessary even weekdays and especially in season.

We like to go here for special occasions but you can of course just go here just for dinner, we just enjoy celebrating here. The atmosphere is warm and cozy, and the food consistently delicious. You know you're on a roll when the bread and butter is marvelous just for starters. My husband and I find this reminiscent of Europe,... More

Rocky start but turned out delicious. Steak and vegetables were outstanding. Best chocolate ice cream and whipped cream - rich chocolate and real whipped cream! The rack of lamb was superb. Service was not as good as we have experienced on prior visits.

We live near NYC and eat out a lot. On an overnight getaway my husband and I traveled an hour and a half north to saugerties/ Woodstock for a romantic break. After researching a bit on line we picked the Red Onion restaurant. It was, by far, one of the best eating experiences we have had in a long time.... More

The night we were there it was quite busy. We understood this and weren't upset with the slow service as our waiter was so accommodating and apologetic. The food was sensational which made our dinner very enjoyable. Adding to our pleasure in our dining experience was the fact that our waiter, Joe, did not charge us for our wine because... More

Food was ok, I ordered Swordfish, very small piece for 25 dollars, not much flavor either, came with broccoli rabe which was extremely bitter, and a hint of potatoes. My husband had fish and chips which were good. I also ordered a side salad was like any other. Vodka tonic I ordered was very good.

Thank Tres0309
