Boston >Red Sky Restaurant and Lounge
“Some people thinks its pricey but its no worse than any other bar in the neighborhood and with Red Sky you get great atmosphere, great service, and great looking people unlike anywhere else.”
“ordered a drink that had little alcohol in it from a rude waitress.”
“work in the financial district and make the trek across faneuil hall at least twice if not 3 times a week to unwind and enjoy some great drinks and great food at a reasonable price.”
“love the tapas menu especially the shrimp and the Lamb shank entree is rediculous!”
“With comfortable couches, and great windows to watch the passers-by this is a cool place to spend your Friday or Saturday nights!”
“Red Sky fell flat on it's face, and I will not return.”
“The bartender was very rude and was annoyed when my friend asked a question about one of the drinks.”
“The thing that most stays in my mind is that the portions of food are great and very good.”
No need to go anywhere else! This is the place!. I live in the North End amongst several hundred restaurants and this new addition to the area competes if not tops most of them. The portion of food along with price accompanied by friendly service and attractive servers is second to none for the area. The bartenders are very professional and friendly. This place is busy just about every night. I use to frequent many different places throughout the course of the week trying to find a nice environment and now I don't have to. Red Sky is warm, inviting, and entertaining on many different levels. Ive made it my home away from home. I highly advise all to try it!
Food and atmosphere great..my new favorite place!!!!. Not sure what the last person was talking about...I have been here 3 times and it's been nothing but wonderful! The service and food are great!! It's not trying to be anything but what it is...a MUCH nicer option than most places in the area!! It is not trying to be "too cool" and it is not!! Unpretentious is the word I'm looking for!! I love it and and will be back soon!
A futile attempt even for Boston.....
I can't believe this place is so highly ranked. First of all, its not upscale...its a bar. A small bar at that. The waitress served me a glass of flat champagne knowing it was flat! She admitted it to me when I asked her for a new glass. In all my experiences when you order a glass of champagne and it is the last glass poured from a bottle and its flat... you toss that glass and pop a new bottle open.
The food was ok. Nothing to write home about
Honestly, this is not the nice upscale lounge its trying to be.
Cool place..parking is tough...big line on Sat nights..great people watching. Went with 5 friends and was plesantly suprised! Food and drinks were excellent!! Try the Red Sky Martini. Get there early on Sat. We waited in line for 35 min and it was FREEZING. Door man was very nice though during our wait and even offered to get us somehot tea from inside! Can't wait to go back!
Great for a group!! great food!! fun music... Went last week to my girlfriends b day party..we had a small lounge area reserved for 20 of us..SO MUCH FUN!! Our waitress was so cute and fun and gave us great service. Cant wait to go back!
Can't get enough....... Living in the neighborhood, I go there for lunch or dinner at least twice a week!!! Try the lobster pizza..it's to die for!! Red Sky is also great after work place to hang and gets a great bar crowd on Thurs, Fri and Sat nights. It is FAR from average ( as someone put it previously) The food, drinks and staff are all wonderful!! They play outstanding music too!!!! Great addition to the neighborhood!!
Decent bar for Fan. Hall, but not much different than most. Its a little darker, a little more expensive, and a has less baseball hat wearing college kids, but its still quite similar to most bars in the area....loud music, average food, and lots of beers on tap. if you have to go somewhere in the area, its not a bad choice if you're over 23.
Awesome music!!!. I love this place because they play the best music! The martini list is awesome and the staff is great (and really good looking too). I am here every week because they are the only place that serves good food late. Love it all!!!
Best new spot handsdown!!. Red Sky is by far the best new spot in town. Its about time there finally is a place to go in the Faneuil Hall area and not have to deal with the "dollar draft seekers", the faneuil brawl mentality, and the over crowded same old scene. Red Sky is a great atmosphere, with great service (good looking staff to boot!), and a great menu which is served late until 1am. Ive been there several times early on in the week and their is always a decent crowd. Wednesday is especially great early with a Frank Sinatra impersonator. I now make this a weekend ritual as well. Can't get enough of the place I highly recommend it and agree with all the awards and rankings they have been receiving. If you have not been there you are missing out!
Stick to the bar.
Ok, I was here 2 weeks ago with a date (that I travelled up from NYC to go on), and I went here based on its 9.3 rating. It was OK, but it does not merit that rating.
Yes, the service was above par. No, the food was not heavenly (we went with the tapas, maybe that was a mistake - the dumplings were uber-deep-fried, the tuna tartare nothing to write home about). And when we asked for waters, we got them in (I kid you not) those same bright red plastic cups they have in college/high school cafeterias. Classy.
I remain optimistic that Boston has better date / dining experiences - I'll be back soon to investigate.
