I have had sushi at many places in many cities and the food, presentation, and service was just exceptional. I heard about Red for a friend and tried it with my two sons. We were all so pleasantly surprised by the experience. I can't recommend visiting Red strongly enough. Well done Red!!

Best Madison Restaurant! Ever since the long awaited move Red has gotten better! The food is stellar and the appearance is exactly what you would want out of find dining. Make sure you call for a reservation well ahead of time as you would not want to be without. The drinks are strong, which is good. It makes for an... More

Still one of my favorite places in town to go get sushi. Love the super volcano and upbeat music. Nice atmosphere. Great place to start your evening before a show or comedy club etc.

This is a very modern dining experience. Very relaxed fun environment. Off to the side of the bar is a rail along the windows for people to wait and get drinks from the bar. This was great for us because we didn't make reservations. Once seated our waitress was great offered up some good suggestions. We don't get sushi often... More

Sushi was amazing! In fact, it may be the best sushi I have had ever. My favorite so far is the Peking (seared duck, lettuce, green onion, mango, avocado, and eel sauce). We had two others, the tsunami and a vegetable mushroom roll. Both very good rolls. Ingredients all seemed very, very fresh. I was told this was the best... More

Our family recently celebrated our daughter's Birthday at RED. What a delightful and TASTY evening! We began with some fun custom cocktails. I enjoyed the Lychee Martini very much. Fresh and slightly less sweet than some. Another delightfully unique choice was the No Obligation (Sweet but spicy). We ordered from the cooked roll menu and shared a variety of choices... More

I don't usually give 5..... But I do that this time! The decoration of this new location is great! Simple but very new & update. The server knows his job. It's sound "obvious" but it is not. And he was nice. The sushi is not your everyday one. It's unique and high quality. We also order "non sushi" plate- pork... More

Discovered Red's a few years ago and has always been a memorable experience. Recently, Red expanded to a new restaurant three times the size of their old one. Man, this does not disappoint! Location-check. Atmosphere-check. Food Quality and taste-check. The new design and feel of the new Red's is amazing. Great for a dinner date. As for the food....LOVE the... More

We lunched on some oysters, miso soup and then a sushi platter with a godzilla roll. We had Jasmine tea as well. Oysters were sweet and briny. Miso was a generous large bowl and absolutely delicious. Sushi selection was well balanced and all was fresh and sweet and very beautifully presented. Least fave was the Godzilla roll...not a lot of... More

This is my second time going to Red. It was a great dining experience, as before. This time I brought my family. We have eaten at pretty much every other Sushi Restaurant on Madison. We even make our own Sushi at least once a year. They are big Sushi critics. They absolutely loved this place! The huge selection, incredible quality... More
