We loved the duck salad which was huge and fabulous. We shared one. My husband had the special that evening, a delicious sole preparation. It was one of the finest fish entrees he ever had. I enjoyed the lobster risotto with mushrooms and pencil thin asparagus enormously. The waitstaff was beautifully trained and attentive without being overbearing. The prices were very fair for the quality and quantity of the food, and our cocktail and wine were very fairly priced as well. We certainly will return to the Red Sky next time we stay in Southwest Harbor.

I had the ravioli; my husband had the lamb appetizer and then a duck dish as the main. He will not stop talking about this restaurant! The flavours in the food melded together to provide immense flavour. The staff was wonderful, their wine suggestion awesome, and the atmosphere was welcoming. Just an incredible restaurant.

Make a reservation, because others have discovered this place. The restaurant was full on the Sunday evening that we were there.

This what right up there with anywhere we have ever dined, and we have dined in many places and countries. The entrees of the attached halibut and the lobster risotto were true perfection. The place looks non discreet from the outside, we would have passed it by except for previous trip advisor reviews. If you are in this town, go and you will not be disappointed. This is fine dining where obviously a top notch chef is in control.

We had the good fortune to dine twice in a week at Red Sky. Both dinners were excellent. The wine specials were well chosen, well priced, and excellent. The menu carries some dishes from year to year so we have seen some of these in prior years but the quality of execution and service make this a fine experience. Since we don't venture to Bar Harbor we have no idea how this compares to anything there, but with Red Sky in reach there is no reason to cross the island for dinner. Stay on the Quietside and enjoy really fine dining.

Cute little place in the small town of Southwest Harbor, ME. Excellent wait staff, great menu, and very good food. I am sure this is one of the nicest restaurants in the area. A must when you are vacationing in Southwest a Harbor.
