We had heard very positive things about Red Skye, so were looking forward to our meal there. Both the service and atmosphere were excellent. But the food, while certainly acceptable, was less than we had hoped for.

So sorry you didn't enjoy you experience with us. I wish I had known while you were in the restaurant so we could have done something to make you happy. We are very shorthanded hence 'disorganized'. We are not short of staff by choice. There...More

Comfortable atmosphere appealing mostly to adults, many of which were older. The owners clearly are mindful of high standards, excellent meals, and proper servicing at the table.
