Having been to many Spanish tapas places across the globe, this placeakes a mockery of the beautiful cuisine. A plainly dumb commercial menu, long food waits and poor service. Buyer beware !

I ordered the Red Paella last night when I went out to dinner with my husband, and it was the best Paella I have ever had from a restaurant! My husband ordered the sea bass and that was also amazing! I am really happy that I tried Red for the first time. I will definitely be returning and with a smile on my face.

The beauty of the place lures you in. The food and service makes you run out. We waited forever to get our food, the staff did not pay much attention I could not say that meatballs, ravioli and crab cakes are tapas...its nothing special.Just not up to par with other places around here, Will not go back.

Another new restaurant opening in a space that seems doomed-sadly it looks like this place might meets the same fate. Why? For a new place it was not busy. This restaurant is touching on a difficult subject matter, without understanding what they are serving. If you call yourself a Tapas bar- please fly to Spain or Portugal and visit a real Tapas bar. The tapas served here are an embarrassment to any sophisticated diner who had a real Tapas experience.... its like eating Italian food at the place with olive in its name. Good for the masses..not the real deal. Please send the chef to a paella restaurant in Lisbon, Portugal, where in the chef cooks up beautiful fresh seafood in fragrant rice with saffron from the ground up.Not a pan with some tasteless rice piled with seafood.

We went here right after the opening. Kudos for beautiful setting and design. It would have been great if the effort put into designing the restaurant would have been invested into the food and service. The gimmick of taking orders on the spot wireless is cute, yet the server seemed to struggle with it. We ordered a traditional sangria, It was not bad, yet tasted not even close to something one would get in Spain or a great tapas place in Miami. It took a while to get it, since the bar was busy.The server did not apologize for the wait. Food wise I was skeptical about the wide range of international dishes. We first ordered the hummus, which was nicely presented. The pita bread was cold and seemed a little stale. The hummus was very dry and seemed to taste like a commercial store-bought version. The other Tapas were OK, yet lukewarm and something you would find on an Italian restaurant or Greek menu. Not unique. I missed traditional Spanish tapas items such as marinated sardines, Iberian pig and mini croquettes. My big beef is the Paella. It did not taste authentic- the seafood was dry and overcooked. In Spain and traditional paella serving restaurants here in america, paella is cooked to order. The menu will say; please allow 25 minutes for preparation. The rice here at Red must have been pre-cooked, since it arrived at the table very quickly and tasted re-heated. I also did not taste a real saffron flavor, which is a must.Sometimes yellow coloring or seasoning packages are used for mock paella by chefs to save money, since saffron is very costly.Restaurants who do not know how to make a real Paella, should refrain from serving it..period! If you are driving, there is the valet service. It is slow and it takes a while to get your car-try to park it yourself. Across the street is a nice martini bar that is great for music and dancing. Red is a nice bar hang-out, but not an authentic Tapas experience as they claim.
