Visited the Red Onion this week after driving by it for the last couple years. Glad we did. We had a reservation (suggested) and we're seated upon our arrival about 10 minutes early. Host was friendly, waitress at table in a minute and the rustic but classy dining room was cozy with a bit of a buzz of noise and... More

Was there tonight for first time in a while. Much better experience than usual. No reservations and was seated immediately. Was served drinks immediately and very good bread for the table. Waitress was very good. Had the burger which was better than usual. Mushroom soup and spinach were good too. Overall better than past few visits. Glad.

Always consistent, great food. The staff is great. We eat here several times a month and have never been disappointed. Jeff and Ray always see to it that we have a great time.

We had never eaten here before and it was a great and wonderful surprise to see what we were missing. There was so much choice, and everything was prepared perfectly. Even the bread and butter were scrumptious. We were visiting from Italy, so good American food tasted really good. The fish and chips were really good--spectacular fish. The pierogies with... More

Let me start by saying the atmosphere, service and staff were amazing! The Hamburger Special was devine! I highly recommend this restaurant to able bodied individuals; unfortunately I am not Although marked Handicapped Parking; the space is non existent. The ramp led me to a door that was locked! The sign on the door pointed to a separate entrance which... More

This was my second trip to the Red Onion, which I have previously highly recommended. This time I was very disappointed in how they handled our dinner experience. Eating there as a three-some we ordered a variety of dishes for a family style feast, as expected everything was excellent... except as we shared the seafood risotto we found one of... More

I did a solo trip to The Red Onion and ate at the bar. Around me everyone - locals and visitors alike - were tucking in to delicious classic bistro fare. I enjoyed the arugula salad starter and chicken main course even though tarragon is never my favourite for a sauce flavour! The service is good, the wine list is... More

We like the onion for it's consistently good food. A rustic place that's comfortable with a nice menu. We do often roll our eyes at some staff who can b a bit pretentious. Reservations are necessary even weekdays and especially in season.

We like to go here for special occasions but you can of course just go here just for dinner, we just enjoy celebrating here. The atmosphere is warm and cozy, and the food consistently delicious. You know you're on a roll when the bread and butter is marvelous just for starters. My husband and I find this reminiscent of Europe,... More
