Not only one of the best (if not, the best) spot for sushi in Madison, but they have quite a few other great things going for them. The interior design of their new space is incredible. They covered every little detail, from using another one...More

Great atmosphere and delicious sushi. Very conveniently located close to the capital. Easy parking (lots of ramps around here). I️ personally like the chefs choice sashimi.

Minimalist Japanese decor, stunning. Incessant electronic dance music with a never-ending bass beat (annoying after 45 minutes). The sashimi meal was great. The menu says 18 pieces. I was served 3 or 4 pieces of nine different types of fish; fresh and saltwater. All prepared...More

Red's new space has a beautifully laid out bar, sushi bar and restaurant interior. Lots of great energy in the space! Sushi menu is one of the most creative I have seen. Very comprehensive special rolls menu as well as standard roll offerings.

There didn't appear to be a dress code. We were in business casual attire but there was a mix of clothing from people dressed up to dressed down. Just go as you're comfortable.
