Big news! 🎉 RED is thrilled to announce Monday June 1st our outdoor courtyard will be open for dinner! 🥂 4:30-9pm 🍣 With priorities of health, safety and staying true to the RED experience, our indoor dining room will remain closed for now. However, our take-out and delivery programs will continue.

Our policies have been updated to comply with the CDC and Dane county restaurant guidelines for reopening. We have redesigned our service procedures and interactions to maintain a safe and thoughtful guest experience. Every policy put in place has been carefully considered with mutual safety for our staff and our guests in mind. We will continue to diligently follow government recommendations concerning safety and base our decisions on best practices.
•Courtyard tables will be spaced 6 feet apart, and in high traffic areas, guide markings are set to help maintain social distancing.
•We have implemented a limited contact style of service including contactless menus and payment options.
•Guests will be seated on a first come first serve basis, and groups may not exceed 6.
•We will not be accepting any reservations at this time due to weather concerns. If tables are occupied, guests may add themselves to our virtual waitlist via RESY App.
•All staff are required to comply with strict health standards and facility hygiene protocols including fresh masks, gloves and social distancing practices.
•Surfaces and high touch points will be routinely sanitized after every guest and staff use. Employee health and sanitary protocols will be continuously monitored.
Time and time again, in the midst of fear and uncertainty it humbles us to see love and strength grow around us. Here at RED we have seen that every day, from thank you notes and generosity to extra levels of patience and understanding. So to all those who have supported and continue to support our RED family, thank you! ❤️ We will see you soon. 😁
