Great food, an amazing chef, quaint atmosphere. Very small restaurant so be sure to make reservations!! Definitely worth checking out! The wine is a little pricey.

Lovely food: tasty and well presented. Service was wonderful, even for a busy Father's Day meal. I would recommend reservations to ensure comfortable seating for a group, (we were a party of 7) as the place is a tad tight.

Easy to make online reservations served us well as it was packed on a Tuesday night. That tells me something! My first trip to this uptown Waterloo place won't be my last. Apparently it is a favourite haunt of my brother who picked the locale...More

My second time coming to Red House for the Saturday brunch, and was really hoping it would be just as good as I remembered -and it was! I brought out of town guests again, and always a little nervous that it won’t meet everyone’s needs,...More
