We were staying at the hotel next door and were hesitant to eat here because of some of the reviews. Well. Read carefully. Most of the negative ones point out that the food is quite good and express concerns with the service. They are right with the food. It is quite good. The halibut cheeks, ribeye, clams... all of it... SPOT ON. Seriously Gast and fabulous. Where the reviews got it wrong... the service. It was fabulous too. And the drinks were AWESOME. So, well done Red Star. Great drinks and a great meal. And an awesome hotel attached.

Wandered in to this place after a morning walking around Portland. Great find!

I had the Red Star Burger. Excellent. My wife had the chickpea cake - she's vegetarian - and declared it excellent.

Our server, Keith, was superb. Attentive and knowledgeable. One of the best places we tried in Portland.

We stayed in the Hotel Monaco and stopped in here for an appetizer and glass of wine while deciding on what to do for dinner. They had a nice selection of Oregon Pinot Noir by the glass. We shared the avocado dip. It was the perfect size to share for a light snack--those who are hungrier or like big portions might be disappointed. It was very flavorful.

Thank you for letting us know about your recent experience while dining with us! I'm thrilled to hear that you enjoyed our wine by-the-glass selections as well and a bite of our food. I'm glad the Avocado Dip satisfied, but if you're ever looking for something more filling our dinner menu has some great appetizers as well as full meal options.
Thank you again and we look forward to serving you again in the future!

Nice selection and a talented staff of bar tenders. The tavern is connected to hotel Monaco and nicely appointed. The staff is friendly and jokey so it's easy to have a good time.
