2022- Just spent a lovely Mothers Day brunch at Redd. Food and service were perfect. Pictures are from brunch. No update on last waiter (2021), our gent this time was lovely.2021- Loved the ambiance and the food was great. Not a five due to a snooty waiter. Good staff can make or break an expierence. All other servers and staff were fabulous. Maybe he just had a bad night. I will go back.

This place is delicious. Everything is cooked well, the temperature in the restaurant is perfect, it's clean and the wait staff are great. Nice med-high end dining experience.

I have to tell you, this is the GREATEST place for an espresso martini! Just order it!!!
09:37 03 May 22
The decor, the service, the food - all immaculate. Will definitely return. I’m still in awe of how incredible the food was!

Sat at the bar, had drinks. They were fantastic. Great vibe, energetic, full and noisy but could still talk. I look forward to trying dinner and going often for drinks

What a great place to have in Rochester. Went for our anniversary dinner and they congratulated us as we arrived and offered a complimentary toast. Small seasonal menu which showed the focus of the food. Everything was amazing. As good as I've had anywhere in New York City. The price was comparable for a nice dinner out anywhere so an amazing value. Definitely a new go to place for impressing guests or special occasions

Creative cocktails and a glow up of American dishes. Seasonal menus keep it fresh

Absolutely fabulous food, drink and staff. It was a magical night before seeing bonnie Raitt! The duck was outstanding

Excellent! The food is delicious, the staff is great, and the ambience is wonderful. Will be back! Thank you!

Like many other reviewers, we had an unforgettable culinary experience. We were seated promptly, as we arrived on time, in a corner booth, allowing us to talk easily and be close. The wine selection was extensive! But we each elected for some cocktails, which paired well with the meal. We shared the gnocchi which was scrumptious and I would eat so much more of it! But i wanted to save room for the main course. I chose the salmon which was paired with light vegetables/puree and bacon which... didn't overpower the salmon. My boyfriend chose the grilled chicken, which was wonderfully and boldly seasoned while also being juicy. However it was paired with jasmine rice that made the meal heavier than the salmon. Perhaps we should've gotten the Brussels sprouts. Overall we were delighted in the experience and celebration of our anniversary. Well done Redd!Also I noted the wait staff were phenomenal, always moving, always attentive. Yet we didn't feel that our waitress Allie (not sure of spelling) was overly interruptive. She was quite informative on the food and drink selections to help us choose what was right for us. I would certainly return and wish for her assistance in the future!read more

Two Words: Consistently Amazing!!!!I’m a foodie, I love good food and fine dining. There aren’t many restaurants in Rochester I haven’t tried but “REDD” takes the cake (by far). We have several great restaurants in Rochester but no one matches the consistency I continue to experience at REDD.I only leave reviews once a restaurant has proven to be amazing across 3 separate experiences. I’ve been to REDD 7 or 8 times now, and they never cease to amaze me. Let’s start with the exceptional... customer service……Customer Service: There’s always someone at the host station when I arrive. Engaged with a warm smile and a very welcoming culture. I’ve never been asked to wait for my table, upon arrival my table is readily available. The combined attentiveness of multiple staff members makes for a very efficient dining experience. My drink never sits empty without a server asking if I’d like a refill. Empty plates never left sitting on the table making it crowded. My favorite waiter is this gentleman named Mason. This guy not only remembers my name but memorizes every detail of every order I make, he’s “the” perfect example of incredible extraordinary service.A+ Customer serviceFood Quality: When I heard we had a Michelin-starred chef in Rochester, I couldn’t wait to see if the food quality matched the accolades. I was SOLD the moment I tasted the Risotto (then Lobster/Now shrimp). I love a good Risotto but this is no ordinary Risotto, the combination of lemon and truffle elevates this dish to new heights. Knowing how easy it is to over/under cook Risotto, they’ve executed the consistency correctly EVERY TIME.The Glazed Pork Belly is unthinkably delicious, the sauce is heavenly and the tenderness of the pork belly is impossible replicate, don’t you dare use a knife to cut into that, your fork is more than enough. On my fourth visit I tried the Thai chili glaze wings. I thought to myself “upscale restaurants typically do a lousy job when it comes to a good chicken wing”. Ha! Not this chef! I still don’t know how he does it. To put that amount of sauce on a wing and still maintain the crispness of the skin is not easy.The steak is unmatched (Finally, someone understand the true temperature of a medium steak). The scallops are caramelized to perfection! Last and certainly not least, the dessert. HOLY JESUS! I wish I knew the exact name of this dessert I had, it’s almost like a custard and the flavor is Butterscotch. I’m not a fan of butterscotch anything but this dessert is ridiculously good. It’s served in a small bowl and its chilledA+ Food QualityThe Price: The prices are exactly what I expect to pay for fine dining. As they saying goes “You get what you pay for”. Relative to other places I frequent, like Tournedos, Rose Tavern or Next door Bar and Grill, REDD prices are very fair. The price matches the value receivedA+ PricingThis place has quickly and easily become my go to restaurant of choice. From ambiance/decor to exceptional execution of everything I look for in a great restaurant experience. I’ll end this review the same way I started it…….Two words: Consistently Amazing!!!!!!read more

An absolutely amazing experience.We made reservations for 5:45pm and showed up 15 minutes early. Due to being early, we were offered to head towards the bar for a drink. It seems they strictly abide by the reservation time and will not seat you if you are early, which is fine. To the bar we went for a couple of drinks before heading back to the host stand to be seated at our table.We received water by a kind gentleman named, "Jacob." I asked Jacob if he would kindly take picture of us and... without hesitation he happily did. We started off with a couple of appetizers. The Gnocchi which was absolutely phenomenal. Very light and airy. It was like biting into little clouds. An excellent starter. The girlfriend opted in for the Glazed Pork Belly. Perfect meat to fat ratio. Rich and accompanied by a great apple salad with a lovely vinaigrette.For mains, I opted in for the Caramelized Scallops. It did not only have a stunning presentation but is easily one of the best scallop dishes I've had. Perfectly seared scallops which accompanied with cauliflower, capers, raisins and almonds. Absolutely delicious. As for the girlfriend, she ordered the Grilled Chicken. The chicken was a generous portion, bone-on and moist. Very impressive for such a thick piece of chicken to be moist and flavourful. We did order both sides available on the menu. The Fried Marble Potatoes were just okay, but the Wood Oven-Roasted Brussel Sprouts were great. I would have liked to see just a few more options for sides vs. two and for $12 each, I found this was a bit steep for the fried marble potatoes but worth every penny for the brussel sprouts.We ended our meal with a dessert which I can't remember the exact name for. It was a thick custard with a lovely maple flavour. Our server was kind to place a candle on the dessert being my girlfriend's birthday.After my dinner experience here at REDD, this easily became one of my top 5 restaurants in Rochester, NY. The clean atmosphere, the presentation of the food, the quality of the food, the service and everything in-between was spot on.Huge thanks to our Server "Dominque" for a great experience and making my girlfriend's birthday dinner extra special.A perfect 10/10.read more

Visited for the first time and really enjoyed it. Good atmosphere and fantastic food and beverage. I liked the beer selection. ABVs we’re reasonable (some places the beer is all too strong). The chicken was amazing!! Certainly best I can remember. Great night out with friends.
08:02 05 Mar 22
The food was delicious and service was excellent.
00:19 26 Feb 22
Holy wow, I am so glad we came here!!!! The hostess that first greeted us was extremely kind and attentive (you don’t always get this when you walk into a restaurant). Our server, Jared, was great and relieved my worries about ordering the chicken dish (I had a very bad experience at The Revelry last week). We started with drinks and in total tried the Queen’s Nectar, Late Registration, The Macallister Mule and the Espresso Martini, all of which were fantastic! For our appetizer we got the... special of the day which was a lettuce cup ground pork creation that tasted phenomenal. For dinner we had the duck confit and the grilled chicken (off of their winter menu). Both of these dishes were cooked to perfection, literally no complaints. Also, between courses, a runner wipes down your table and brings you new silverware! I cannot tell you how many times I have been to restaurants and had to use the same silverware changing the flavor of the dish. On a final note, there was a runner (server assistant) name Kelvin, who was so personable, that I had to write about him in this review. Redd, thank you for the wonderful food, staff, and experience, see you again soon!read more

Went for dinner last night food as always was great. What I loved the most was all the smiling faces. Its been very depressing in NY the last 2 years. Thanks for bringing back some normalcy to our lives even if it was just for dinner. It was very freeing. Thank you
01:33 09 Jan 22
The ingredients in the vegan soup were remarkable. The portion was the size of a main course. Wonderful salads and the scallops were well received (should have got the larger portion!). And the staff worked really well together. Job well done in the back and front of the house.

Worth every penny. Sometimes, expensive restaurants can leave you feeling less than satisfied based on the meal and experience you get for what you paid. I have never experienced that at Redd. The food and service has always been amazing. If you can get your reservation on a night when they have the chef's menu, I can't recommend this option enough... Just spectacular. Truly one of the gems of Rochester dining.
05:12 18 Dec 21
THE BEST!!!!!! Duck confit is great the butterscotch dessert was great vibe was great ❤️ thank you !!!!!!
00:08 16 Dec 21
I ate here 3 times during the course of a week. Phenomenal food, and the pizza is exquisite!
23:52 09 Dec 21
Very nice restaurant. The lobster bisc is perfect🍻
00:53 11 Nov 21
Fantastic California styled restaurant with wonderful cocktails and food. They have a large patio area if you are more comfortable outdoors with an area that is covered with heaters. Servers wear face masks and the service is immaculate. The cocktails are great. What's not to love about a drink called The Mangolorian?! The wine and food wad amazing topped off by great desserts including a candle for my husband's birthday! Would definitely go again!
06:14 06 Nov 21
Super stoked I found this place!!! Both the aesthetic & food were amazing — the service too. The whole parking situation was another perk. I assumed I’d have to park on the street, considering it’s downtown, but discovered they have their own lot which anyone can appreciate. Guys or gals, take yo person on a date here👀(;
21:20 31 Oct 21
Fantastic. Phenomenal wait staff. Food is absolutely delicious.

Great atmosphere for a special occasion! The food was delicious and the service was great. Enjoyed grabbing a drink at the bar before being seated, and once seated honestly had a tough time picking what to order because everything looked good!
02:30 22 Oct 21
Delicious food and incredible service. Highly recommend for date night. Also, they have great beers on tap. Finally, they have all gender restrooms, which is awesome and inclusive!!
19:49 14 Oct 21
Inside it was so noisy that we asked to be seated outside. Huge difference. Excellent food and service.
04:15 14 Oct 21
Great food, awesome atmosphere and friendly staff. Great experience. Will definitely be back.
12:13 12 Oct 21

22:51 02 Oct 21
The rigatoni and Scallops were delicious! The wait staff were kind and funny, so we had a wonderful experience dining here. On the night we dined, the kitchen surprised us with 2 complementary dishes which we enjoyed as well!

Loved this place. The apps were amazing: gnocchi, lobster risotto, pork belly.Mains pictured: soba noodles with scallops (added) and duck confit.Everyone loved their meals, and the prosciutto pizza was also delicious.The special mixed drinks this week were good, but not great, so stick to your normal cocktail that you love, or wine/beer.Thanks for having us. Will be back!
12:28 31 Aug 21
Absolutely fantastic restaurant. Menu is not overly extensive, but every appetizer and main dish is so full of flavor and so perfectly crafted that you will not wish for more options. Cocktails are I hope of this world and concocted perfectly. The bartenders and waiters are as attentive as can be. The atmosphere is immaculate and we will definitely be coming back many times.
00:01 28 Aug 21
Food and drinks were delicious, service was very good, and the ambiance was great! I highly recommend Redd!

My favorite restaurant in Rochester hands down. Great food and service!
23:49 23 Aug 21
Fantastic meal and service. Drinks were well worth the money.
11:49 23 Aug 21
Really excellent restaurant from start to finish. I really loved the pork belly appetizer and the prosciutto pizza! Really no bad dish on the menu. The special entrée of the night was a pork chop over creamed corn with a delicious red pepper sauce and grilled shishito peppers – that was SO Delicious!! Our server, Sean, was great - friendly, attentive but not intrusive. Really can’t go wrong here!
03:47 23 Aug 21
Had a great time. Food and drinks were excellent. Atmosphere is great. It was a little warm in there but I take that as a one off thing. We will be returning.
23:29 22 Aug 21
Excellent service and amazing food! Everything we ordered was absolutely wonderful and the drinks were great! Would recommend for any date night, birthday, or special occasion!

15:38 09 Jul 21
On of the best meals I have had in a long time, great service, great drinks, great food.
16:43 08 Jul 21
The most distinct flavored, delectable, electrifying food I've experienced in a long time. Cocktails were exhilarating and delicious!
13:13 07 Jul 21
Went on our anniversary date here last night. Wonderful place, wonderful food. We were told this was a Michelin Star restaurant, and I can believe it. The bone marrow Au Jus was the biggest star of our dish. Staff worked hard and they had their system down pat. We really liked the Mandalorian inspired mixed drink.I would suggest that the chef review the Halibut dish. The vegetable medley in the Halibut option didn't really seem that exotic — the vinegar-tomato sauce tastes a bit too similar... to Campbell's tomato soup; didn't help that the liquid consistency wasn't thick enough, so it was just a odd runny tang that seemed to be missing an ingredient.Still, other portions of that dish was executed very well. The white peach sherbet is astounding. I'm definitely gonna try my hand at making my own Bone Marrow Au Jus. That was something exceptional.read more

Came in on a Saturday around 6p no reservations and was able to sit and order immediately at the bar , Adam the bartender is amazing ! All the dishes recommended by him where delicious, especially the steak and drinks !
20:07 22 Jun 21
Walked in and sat at the only open seat at the bar on a busy Monday night. Received solid service from the bartender and enjoyed the Old Fashioned he crafted for me along with the green pizza. Outstanding flavor on the pizza and just right for a warm early summer day.
17:37 17 Jun 21
They have a great menu selection going on and the service was fantastic. They got an awesome menu and the prices are unbelievably low.
14:53 17 Jun 21
The food is amazing here and the service is incredible. They have an awesome menu and everything taste amazing.
20:49 13 Jun 21
This outstanding restaurant is one of our favorites in Rochester. The food is amazing, great wines and a very attentive staff that goes out of their way to make the evening special. The tasting menu is unbelievable, every course perfectly pared. Tom the sommelier does a great job with the wine selection. We can’t get enough of REDD and always look forward to coming back.
01:07 01 Jun 21
Fabulous food, drinks, and service. So very different than when it was 2 Vine.
01:38 29 May 21
Great food, great service, much better atmosphere then that loc has had in the past - vibrant but not insane!
16:00 20 May 21
Came here for the first time and the food is unbelievably good. They have a great menu selection and their items are reasonably priced.
23:08 17 May 21
Food and drinks were amazing and staff was extremely attentive. Would highly recommend!
20:49 16 May 21
Awesome place! First time visit tonight. I was with a group of 5. Staff was very friendly and although it was a busy Friday, the food came at a reasonable time.Their food is both unique and delicious. We decided to eat family style, and everything was awesome! Perfectly seasoned, great diversity of textures, and incredible flavors. The Moroccan chicken meatballs and couscous was possibly my favorite- but the duck was incredible.This place is definitely worth a visit- everyone in the... group enjoyed the food.Update: just visited Redd again- for brunch this time. Their food remains amazing-- the most difficult task was to narrow our choices- the buttermilk pancakes with passion fruit infused syrup was perfectly balanced. The shakshuka was perfect! The grits were unexpectedly delicious.The service remains excellent- to the point, a wait staff member noticed a smudge on our spoon and replaced it immediately. The cocktails were had a kick and were well balanced.read more
20:34 09 May 21
Amazing food. Wonderful staff. Comfortable dining room. Great drinks. A meal at Redd helps you realize what a dining experience should be. Their attention to detail in the menu and the service is uncommon today. We love the scallops, anything from the wood fired oven, the wings, everything really. Inside or out, Redd will be a relaxing and delicious time.
03:01 09 May 21
Very splendid! Will definitely come back.
15:53 04 May 21
The food is really good here and the service staff are pretty friendly here too. The prices are great and the menu selection is amazing.
02:09 01 May 21
Food was amazing! Atmosphere is nice, clean and very modern. Can’t wait to see what the new patio is like in the summer time
16:14 26 Apr 21
My husband I went here on our anniversary in November 2020. Being in the middle of the pandemic, I felt very safe being here. The space was clean, and there was a lot of space between tables, as well. Our waitress was amazing, and she provided excellent service. Food and drinks were very good, as well! Wonderful restaurant to visit for special occasion dining!
19:24 25 Apr 21
So happy this place is open! Delicious food, creative menu, great service!
17:52 23 Apr 21
The food was great and the atmosphere was comfortable. The menu is a bit limited but there is something for everyone!
