A local recommended this place to us. We went in and sat at the bar while waiting for a table. The bartenders and locals sitting next to us were so friendly, we decided to have dinner at the bar. First off, the drinks were excellent. They don't water them down. We started with a spinach salad and then tried the... More

Had to been back to this establishment since it was an Italian eatery. It looked like the old Redwood Room of yesterday, dark and crowded. That is until I picked up a round of drinks. I thought I was at a Fairmont or Hyatt hotel. We ordered dinner. Several in my party ordered etoufee @ $19.00. It was almost what... More

We were passing through Rochester and stopped at redwood room and it is an awesome place.It's in the basement but it is cozy with dim lights. We eat at a lot of expensive restaurants in Minneapolis/st paul area this one is right up with them. It was a relaxing evening.

My family and I have been going to the Redwood Room for many years and have always had good food. But, we tried to change things up and get some pizzas and boy, were we disappointed.. for $18 you get a large pizza which you would expect a nice hand tossed pizza crust. Nope. You get a thin pre-made freezer... More

The atmosphere here is dark and personal candlelit tables with dim overheads. There is an expansive bar and a myriad of cocktails to choose from. The food we had was excellent. My wife went with the Greek pizza which was very flavorful on a tasty thin crust. The pizza was also quite large. I had a Cajun rich dish with... More

Kind of interesting entry to the restaurant but don't let that deter you. Once inside great food and atmosphere. The artichoke dip was amazing!! Pizza was excellent as well. The guys playing guitar were great, just the right volume.

Everytime we come here, it is like coming into a friendly warm little oasis. Food is nearly always amazing, the live music is wonderful. Like a private club, but better.

I don't know why exactly, but we haven't dined here in about 10 years, but the quality has not waned. Actually, I do know why......we have tried a few times in the past decade but they don't take reservations and the normal wait time for a table during dinner hours is about 90 minutes. This place is extremely popular and... More

A regular stop during visits to Rochester. The Chicken Milanese is a favorite. Staff are attentive and committed to a positive dining experience. We love the entertainment and casual atmosphere. A very short walk from center of town. Appreciate they split the check any way we ask w/out attitude.

We go to the Redwood Room every month or so and always enjoy ourselves. The food, drinks and service are uniformly good. The atmosphere is cozy and friendly. This is not a "Wow!" kind of place, more a place to go when you are in the mood for mellow and relaxed....at least at dinner time, it may get livelier later... More
