I was at Red Sky the last two saturdays and It's probably gonna be my new go to spot for raging out. By about midnight I felt like the roof was gonna come off this place. Girls were dancing on the tables people were straight raging out.

Red sky has a very cool setting. Huge glass store-front with red and white everywhere in the whole place. Very modern and funky atmosphere, like many great places in that area. It's more of a bar than a restaurant, but the menu is still good for a drink and a little bite in the afternoon. One particular thing I loved was that they serve carafes of their amazing specialty drinks. Serves 3 or 4 people and saves on money! Also, this is a great place to dance at night. It's right in the heart of Old City, currently the hottest spot in Philly.

What made my trip to @ RED SKY PHILLY so intriguing was that the bouncer wouldn't let us in because of our shoes and to add insult to injury(or injury to insult) he decided that the best course of action after us videotaping him was to punch me in the face. Enter at your own risk

Pros: Not Getting In

the place is boring, never ate there, but the drinks are overpriced, the dj sucks, and interior is awful! Definitely looks like a warehouse, and don't even start on their bathroom, I've never seen any place more dirty, couldn't even use it. Terrible.

Red Sky is great if your up for an expensive night out on the town. The cocktails are decent but not worth the ten bucks a piece you'll put out for them. It's just not my scene.

I was never really a huge fan of this place as a dancebar and I'm still not, but the new menu by the new chef is awesome! Try the beef/lamb burger with feta. Yum! There's this mediterranean/ middle eastern/ american fusion thing going on that's worth a try. The server was nice and pretty attentive, and she made the drink too, so I figure she's also one of the bartenders. So, the music and atmosphere were subpar, the drinks were strong, the service was sweet, but the food was great!

Cons: The dance/club music that spun 90% of the night.

My friend and I just had dinner here. It was very nice. The food was very good. A bit on the pricier side but well worth it. I did not care for the martini's.

I AGREE WITH THE FOLLOWING: "The rudest management and owners I have ever met." I am so mad I do not even feel like explaining the entire story, so here's the short version. Wait staff and managers talked rudly about us without knowing I could see and here them!!! My decided last minute that she could not finish an entire 4 courses and only wanted drinks and an appetizer. It was during restaurant week and we made the reservations weeks in advance. I wait staff said "ok, I'll check." I had to use the rest room and heard it all. THEN, the manager told us we HAVE to order because the restaurant "closes down to real customers during restaurant week," like they are loosing so much money on a party of 4, one of whom already had 2 $10 drinks. ONLY reason we didn't get up and leave right there was because we were with two other hungry people. NEVER EVER go to this place!

This place was like partying in a warehouse, so bland and boring and expensive! Come on, a well rum and coke $10? What are you offering guests to get away with charging that much money? The only thing good was the deejay. He was really spinning some great music, but all in all, what a waste of time and money! No stimulation at all, unless you consider skanky girls in tiny outfits flashing you from the so-called VIP section. No thanks, honey!

Red Sky is a very young, urbanesque facility, the decor of the restaurant is entrancing and the food very succulent. My only dislike was it gets a little noisy between the upstairs lounge and the DJ. But it is somewhere I would revisit with my girlfriends for a night out.

This past weekend I celebrated my 24th birthday with a few of my friends at Red Sky. We started off with a little but of a wait until our table was ready, however the wait was spent well sipping on this amazing chocolate peanut butter martini--best thing EVER!!! We sat at our table about 20 min later and enjoyed a really great meal. A couple of my friends are picky eaters, but everyone seemed to find something to their liking on the very interesting menu. I was loving how server brought me over dessert with a candle :) to complete the meal. We were planning on going somewhere else for late night, but decided to stay for a little bit--curious to see the "change over" of what was earlier the dining room--definitely a cool set up for a lounge. It didn't get crowed until around 11:30, but was packed by the time we left---one too many choc pb martinis for me i guess :)

Cons: limited bathrooms

I have no idea how this restaurant is still open. The service there was terrible!!!! It took them an hour and a half to bring our appetizers and another hour and a half for our entrees. That's 3 HOURS TOTAL. I could've went home, took a nap, come back and still not have any of my food. Also the salad they gave us was basically one leaf chopped up into 100 pieces. On top of that, the owner did not care about the customers' concerns at all. He basically ignored us when we went to talk to him. Lastly, the mandatory 20% gratuity is basically a sl@p in the face at the end of our night. If anybody ever considers going to Red Sky, I believe Wendy's is a much better alternative.

Friends and family have raved about Red Sky in the past. So we couldn't wait to have dinner there. Everything seemed to be fine when we first got to the restaurant. We ordered a couple of drinks at the bar, and our table was ready before the order was even filled. Our waitress appeared promptly and took our order right away and asked if we'd like water with our meal. And then we waited. After about half an hour, our waitress returned to ask us if we wanted water for the second time. Bread and butter and glasses of water finally appeared another 10-15 minutes later. Another 15-20 minutes went by before we started contemplating leaving and heading to the pizza place a few doors down. One of the owners came by and explained that service was slow because of the high volume of reservations they had at the same time that evening. Perhaps they should take fewer reservations instead of overwhelming their staff. At any rate, we finally got served our first course after waiting over an hour. The food was okay. We had the hong kong calamari and quesadilla to start, followed by caesar salad, and for our main course I had the sea bass and my husband ordered the tuna. Again, the food was just okay. By the time we got our check and paid the bill, we had been there for well over two hours. The table seated next to us had been there for almost three hours and were just having their appetizers. As we left, we discussed whether or not we would consider going back and giving them another try when it's not Restaurant Week in Philly. Well, I'll spare you the details, but my husband and I were both violently sick all night following dinner at Red Sky. Needless to say, we will not be back.

The rudest management and owners I have ever met. For a first date I decided to try Red Sky..Arriving for my 9p.m. reservation and waiting 30 minutes for seating wasn't that bad, seated in the corner by the bathroom got worse. Ordered our $11 drinks, while waiting for our 3 course meal we had about 6 total drinks.... Then suddenly, busboys removed the tables all around us, making a huge commotion as they slammed them down all around the door we were positioned by. Our food came during the "move" then, suddenly our check.. We hadn't even finished eating! We asked for the manager, I was told he was actually the owner.. He needed to clear out tables for a dancefloor, no apologies were given, just a shrug.. I have been a food server for 6 years and have never seen anything like that.. We felt rushed, while the food was Great I will never go back, It felt like they just wanted to get our $200 and leave so the dancefloor would fill up, which it never did.

The late night atmosphere that we did not even know existed there, was far more pleasing than our dinner. The food wasn?t horrible, just not great. Combine that with a rude host, a ditsy waitress and small portions and you can see where I?m coming from. To be specific, the tuna was very good while everything else was pretty much mediocre. The sea-bass was an absolute joke. It would have taken three of them to fill you up. On a more positive note, we had a very good time the rest of the night just hanging out (like I was 22 again). Good music, good drinks and a just very good, laid-back but party atmosphere. The people seemed very fun yet easy going and that is hard to find in old city these days. Would not go there again for dinner but will definitely be back the next chance I get to sneak out for a drink. P.S. If you do get there and are not having a good time, go outside and hang with the bouncers. Honestly the nicest guys in the world. To give you a quick example, my husband asked where he could buy cigarettes at that time of night and the bouncer ran somewhere to go get them for him so he wouldn?t have to walk. We thought that was awesome. But anyway, if you have the chance, I would definitely check out their later night bar scene. Good Time!

Last year, I was looking for a nice place to go for my birthday and came upon their website. It looked nice, it was within my price range, so I booked a reservation.
Now everybody had arrived but two people hadn?t shown up. They made us wait, saying we wouldn?t be seated until the others showed up, stating that they ?needed the space? and had to know if they others were coming or not. Alright, our reservations were made early in the evening and they certainly did NOT need the space that would accommodate two more people at the time. We were the only ones there at that point!

It turned out that my two other friends couldn?t make it so after an hour of this nonsense, I told them they wouldn?t make it so they finally seated us with a table for 8 rather than 10 (the waiting made no sense to me). The host (or is it the owner?) had a terrible attitude as well.

Not everyone in the party was of drinking age. Some were, some weren?t. The entire staff had an attitude about this, and I remember that when I made the reservations, they said ?Well, we make most of our money off of drinks, so we usually don?t have underage people here?. Excuse me? We?re putting money into your business, regardless. On top of that, what if everyone was 21+ and chose not to drink for whatever reasons?

I?ve got one more year to go until I?m 21, and believe me, they will not be my choice to go to for any form of an alcoholic beverage.

The waitress was a bit aloof and ONLY started to warm up to us after one of my friends ordered a ridiculously expensive dish and after she heard it was my birthday.

Also, while the food was good, it wasn?t fantastic, so I consider it overpriced for what it was. I could have let that slide, had it not been for the attitude of the staff.

Way to go, Red Sky. Way to go.

Things may have improved since the last time I've been there, but I don't want to take the chance of going back there.

Red Sky provides a trendy atmosphere for a younger crowd but the food is average. The Dim Sum Platter for 2 has a few good features such as the chicken bites and coconut shrimp. However, the vegetable spring rolls were average and came with a overly salty dipping sauce. The pomegranate glazed ribs were too fatty for a high-end place. I was disappointed by the Pear Sake Salmon entree. The portion size of salmon was fairly small since it was hidden inside the rice paper wrapping. It didn't have too much flavor other than the rice paper itself. The vegetable lo mein it came with was a little mushy but the green beans were good. Dessert was the best part of the meal. We order the small dessert sampler which came with 3 different selections from the dessert menu. Ours came with creme brulee, chocolate-covered strawberries and the Red Sky Dome. The Red Sky dome is a flourless chocolate cake in a chocolate dome shell with raspberry sauce. It was delicious and I highly recommend it. Overall, some of the dishes were good and some were not as good as I hoped for and left me leaving disappointed.

A lot to do with how poor most of our night was, our experience at Red Sky was actually great. Six of us went out for my wife's birthday and after spending too much money to get into and drink at three disappointing places, somehow we ended up in a line at red sky. It took us 30 seconds to realize we did not feel like waiting in a line for another overpriced bar but was then approached by their doorman/ bouncer. I don't know if it is because of how rudely we were treated everywhere else or the fact that I rarely go out and have low expectations for bouncers (sorry!) but this guy overwhelmed us with his hospitality. He waived the cover for my wife's birthday, took the time to explain the place and what was going on, and even walked us in to make sure we got through the crowded hallway. We were very impressed and noticed that type of customer service was the norm in there. Waiting in a very long line to use the restroom, our new bouncer buddy saw my sister and walked her over to the steps leading to a different set of restrooms. She met the girl that controls the steps and another bouncer and all she could say when she came back was, "Wow, these people are so nice here!" So it was not just me, we all got the same vibe. To sum it up and this is what shocked me most of all, I tried to show my appreciation by tipping the doorman on our way out. He told me it was not necessary and he was just glad to hear we had a good time. Now again, I don?t know if it?s just me and the fact that I have been out of the nightclub scene for a long time now but that impressed me very much. A young kid likely just bouncing a couple of nights for some extra cash was more concerned with our experience than with making a quick buck. And while there was a little wait for a drink and not much room to maneuver, the people (staff and customers) made the atmosphere very comfortable and were the reason we had such a good time. My only regret is that we had not gone there first!

While I am normally a patient person, I grow tired of restaurants consistently overbooking their reservations. This happened last night, yes..during Restaurant Week, but that need not to be any excuse. We had reservations for a party of 4 at 7:30pm. We were told they were running about 20 minutes behind. So, at 8:10pm (40 minutes later) we checked again. This time, we were told we were the next table to be seated. Unfortunately, I heard the host tell this same story repeatedly to each person that inquired about their reservation. The restaurant was packed of people waiting. No one could sit down and the bar area and entrance way was standing room only. At 8:45pm, we left without even sitting down for dinner. We ended up at the Continental, where we were seated promptly and enjoyed our meal immensely. I will not patronize this place again. They should really be ashamed of themselves.

Wanted to share my dining experience at a little place I just happened to stumble upon. The decor is trendy, but warm and was pleasantly surprised at how friendly the staff and management was. They have an extensive drink list that made it hard for me to decide. I went with the mango Mojito and it was the best I ever had! My server was very well informed of the menu and knew what to suggest. Upon her suggestions I had the coconut shrimp and the seabass. The coconut shrimp was served with an awesome sauce and the seabass was cooked to perfection. I decided to comment because I just read the other review about the lady with the paint on her purse and I was there on the same night, actually seated right next to them. I must say I was disgusted with how rude she was to management. Coming from the service industry I?ve come across many people who want things for free. My dinner was repeatedly interrupted by her brash complaints, about a situation that seemed to be properly handled. With one review painting such a bad picture I was compelled to share my thoughts; overall my experience was pleasant, and I would definitely return.

My friends and I went to Red Sky for a nice dinner out. That is exactly what we did not get. When we arrived we were seated next to a wall that was just freshly painted. We were not informed about the paint. My friend placed her expensive purse on the floor and got paint all over it. The incompetent owner used club soda and a napkin to get the paint off. In his efforts to do so he ruined the purse. The only thing he offered my friend was an insincere apology. He didn't offer to compensate any part of the meal, which we ate with unexpected guests, fruit flies. When questioned about why we weren't compensated he answered with "I'm sorry we don't do that." What do you mean you don't do that? Oh yeah , that's right! What you do is insult your costumers, have poor management skills, and drive away business. If you want to have an enjoyable dining experience, don't go to Red Sky!!

was looking through the reviews and just wanted to comment as a regular of red sky's after dinner scene. the bouncers are actually extremely friendly and courteous. while some regulars might get preferential treatment at the door, it is like that in any industry and those guys do their best to accomodate everyone. if you are unfamiliar with the upscale lounges in nyc, la, miami, chicago..or basically any big city, than Red Sky will be a little different to you. but it's far and away the best upscale scene in philly. attractive people, cool atmosphere, the top djs in the city and bartenders/staff that make you feel like it is your own private social club. spend a few weekend nights there and you will get the picture. comparable to Denim and 32, but imo, a friendlier and cooler scene.

The food was amazing and the waiter was CUTE and attentive. The drinks were a little weak but very tasty.

MY PROBLEM with Red Sky is what happened after dinner. The party I was with decided to leave and go drink with friends at another bar. After a few drinks I decided to head back to Red Sky. At this point the ropes were up and the meat-head bouncers were standing out front. I waited at the rope, were no one was standing. He stated that we had to wait. That was not a problem and we waited pantiently. After several minutes the bouncer started letting people in from another rope, stating that they are "regulars". The group was about ten young men, all in the early 20's. The bouncer then said we had to continue to wait. It was like 15 minutes before I aksed him if we were going to get in. He was like "yeah in a few". I told him that I was there earlier int he evening and had a good time and spent a lot of money... he acted tough and stated he did not care. We left the line and went to a bar that actually wante dto make money.

THE BOUNCERS are morons AT RED SKY!!!!! The are steriod filled meat heads, who are trying to be 25, but are actually 35! GROW UP! And FYI- NOT ATTRACTIVE in the least.

Arrived on a Saturday night about 10:30PM looking for a place for an after dinner drink. The bar was crowded but the bartenders were accomodating as we got drinks quickly. I was disappointed that there were not lounge-type seats in order to sit close to your date, enjoy your drinks and conversation. The seating was more upscale cafeteria. The music was just a little bit loud, not the best selections for a lounge - more music to try to get people dancing but no room for dancing? The DJ kept switching music types too and did not play enough of one song? The upstairs was not open, although I thought that would be a cool place to sit to look out on to the bar area and chill. If you are going here for a 'date spot' my impression is you won' t stay long. Young crowd, too. i.e.: early 20-somethings.

Last night, my friends and I went to Red Sky for restaurant week. We were kind fo disappointed. The service was poor, we were seated promptly -- but the table next to us was seated about 5-10 minutes after us and were served way before us. The wait was a little long(expected with restaurant week) Appetizers were good, my 23 friends had coconut shrimp and I had the mussels. We got bread, it was burnt and we never got offer refills. The 2nd course was caeser salad. It was warm! The lettuce was limp and it tasted as if it had been sitting out for 45 minutes. We waited quite a while for entrees and they wer just okay. I had the crabcake, which was good, but the lobster mango risotto, had no lobster and was undercooked. My one friend had the pomegrane glazed ribs, which were fatty and just ok, the sauce was delicious, but the accompanyng fries were soggy. The best of the whole night was my friend's orange sesame chicken accompanied by mashed potatoes. Dessert was 3 SMALL tartlets, again just ok. All in all we were not impressed.

My friends were in town from Atlanta and we decided to go to a restaurant for dinner and club afterwards. Since I was able to get into the club when I was yet to be 21 a time before (illegal!!!!), I thought this would be a cool place to try their dinner. So we called and reserved a table for 4 at 8pm and arrived a bit early. So the hostess said they are getting our table ready while we took a seat and bought a drink. So our reservation was at 8pm...8:15 comes around and we were wondering why no one has taken us to our seats yet....8:30 comes around and we ask the staff whats going on....they tell us they're waiting for people to leave. I asked why make a reservation if we can't get a table?????....eventually our table was ready a HOUR AND A HALF LATER at 9:30 after asking constantly!!! We were starving and the entire time while we were waitng, they never offer a menu to us, a complimentary drink to say they are sorry or even an apology!!!! By the time we sat down, I was disgusted and starved, but I refused to eat there. I didn't want anything to ever do with this place ever again....So we went down the street to Tangerine which is a great place with great food and atomosphere!!! DON'T RISK HAVING A BAD NIGHT BY COMING TO RED SKY :(!!!! TERRIBLE SERVICE!!! If they were the last restaurant on earth, I would rather starve than eat at this place!

I just ate at Red Sky tonight for Restaurant Week and wanted to share my great experience. The service was friendly and attentive from the moment I walked through the door until I left. The food was fantastic and unique compared to any of the restaurants I?ve dined at during previous Restaurant Weeks. Although crowded, the wait wasn?t long and we weren?t rushed at all throughout the duration of our meal. My friends and I participate in Restaurant Week every year and I can honestly say this was the best experience and best food we have had out of all restaurants we have tried. We definitely plan on returning to Red Sky for another great night!

My wife and I ate at Red Sky recently and just loved it. The service was excellent and the drinks are the best in the city. We shared an appetizer (coconut shrimp) which my wife loved. This was followed by two great dinners. I had the pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon which was fabulous and my wife had a steak. We shared each others dinner because we each liked what the other ordered as much as what we ordered. We followed that by sharing a chocolate dessert and coffee. We could not have had a better evening.

We just went to Red Sky for my sister's birthday and the food was sensational. The calamari, and spring rolls were amazing, the salads were delicious and plentiful , and the dinner entrees were really good. We got the crab cakes, chilean sea bass, and the filet. I highly recommend all three. Service was great, and the atmosphere was a double plus. We partied all night afterwards. Highlly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a good restaurant with a fun atmosphere.

The atmosphere is nice. We were seated promptly. The waittress was a little less than friendly but she was knowledgeable of the menu. Everything on the menu sounded scrumptious. The food was horrible. I ordered the Ore-Ida Frozen French fries with Seasoned Ketchup and hard cheese. Kraft makes a better mac & cheese, and the coconut shrimp were tough. The entrees and desserts were just as disappointing.

We just went to Red Sky to celebrate our friends recent engagement - and everyone had a blast. We were a large party (10 couples) so our waitress wisely suggested that we order a lot of of appetizers ( tuna tartare, coconut shrimp, calamari, spring rolls, mac and cheese ) and a couple of entrees ( filet, miso sea bass and tuna). The food just kept coming out, and everything was delicious! The servers could not have been more attentive ( the owner even came over to make sure we were happy and to see if there was anything else we needed). I would also like to add that the drinks were really good - I am a big fan of the mojito sorbet martini!! I would highly recommend Red Sky - especially for a large party.

Red Sky has brought about a renewal of faith in old city, for me at least. I have been here for dinner a couple of times and enjoyed the meal on all occasions. The menu is exotic and classic at the same time. The service was friendly, prompt and all around a great dining experience. The drink menu is different and has its own flair. But the real reason for my post was a recent night out to this "restaurant" and I could not believe the transformation! Was this the same place that I had a quiet dinner just weeks before??? From the music to the exciting bartenders to the VIP lounge upstairs, I was really impressed. We had a great time! We will definitely be "regulars" and I highly recommend it to anyone who either wants to enjoy a great dinner or a night out in old city.

I've been to Red Sky quite a few times and have always found it to be a great place to hangout either at the bar with some friends, or at a table for dinner. Either way the food was great - easy for sharing - and the service is always prompt! Talented Chef, who we met on one occasion! Highly Recommend!!

Went during restaurant week for a girl's night out. Perfect fit for us. Has a Sex and the City feel to it. The drinks were really good, especially the specialty drink mixed with Red Bull. Make reservations because I thought seating was definitley limited. I had the burger (being that I don't eat seafood) and I would most definitley recommend it. Almost everyone else at the table got seafood and I didn't hear anything close to a complaint. I'd definitley go back again. The bathroom was kind of prisonish but it just adds to the atmosphere.

I have never felt so strongly about a bar in Philadelphia before. In terms of going on a weekend, it was full of the kind of people who don't think twice about throwing an elbow into your back and then looking at you like it was your fault. The drinks were disgusting - by far the worst Long Island I've ever had, and at $10 a pop it should have been three times its size, not served in a tiny water glass. The music, though decent, was incredibly loud, and for my tastes I'd rather not be at a bar where the entire perimeter is lined with couples making out. If you want to feel like you're at a high school dance, only this time you're paying too much for booze instead of sneaking it in, then this is the place for you.

I recently went to Red Sky. I ordered the french fries with 5 gourmet dipping sauce. They consider ketchup and cheese whiz gourmet sauce! The others were vingar, honey mustard, cheese whiz, and garlic. There is nothing gourmet about it. The drinks were average the place is very tiny. They played 80's music the entire time and the upstairs in small and the owners were not friendly. I recommend you go somewhere else besides here. Save your money and time.

My wife and I struggle to find places that have a balance of great food and great ambiance without costing an arm and leg. We were sat right next to Chris Webber- who by the way is a really nice guy. We also saw the lead singer of the foo fighters. The menu is priced fairly and the portions are sized perfectly. The service is attentive and helpful- I didn't hear "that is a popular dish, or It's looks good" Servers gave wonderful and enthusiatic descriptions for example the server told us that the red wine demi sauce for the filet is one of the best dipping sauces for bread. Before we order our entrees she brought us out a cup of the sauce and told us to dip our bread into it. Red sky won me over before the appetizers were brought to the table. This is a winner!

The servers were very nice and attentive (which is unusual for a restaurant in Old City), and the food was amazing. It's a small place and it was loud, but the food (and the company) made up for that. We are going to try and go there on a weekend night to dance upstairs.

simply put, this place was horrible. we went last night during restaurant week (perhaps a mistake) and were disappointed. the food was bland, the service was shaky (either our server was exhausted or just didn't give a damn) and it was sooooo loud. there are too many other good restaurants in old city to subject myself to this dining experience again.

I had the pleasure of choosing Red Sky to host my friend's birthday. Every member of the staff was exceptionally accomodating. Our reservation needed to be pushed back; no problem. only half the people came on time; no problem. Bringing in a cake; no problem. Everything was done to our specifications and exactly how we wanted it. They even gave us some candles for the cake because we forgot them!!! On top of this, the waitress was perfect, the food was mind-blowingly delicious (try the dum sum for two!) and the bartender was exceptional. We ate, danced, drank, and I didn't even spend everything in my wallet! Thank you Red Sky for doing it right!

The setting was very modern. There were tables outside and in. Red Sky was able to accommodate a large group (10) with a same day reservation at a long table in the back. All of our different drinks were excellent. I loved the mango mohito! The food was very tasty and many dishes were unique (tuna tartar nachos anyone?) and a good value. Everyone in our party enjoyed their variety dishes. The hamburger I had was very thick and tasty.

I took some family here for dinner on the first night in Philly and we had a great time and a great meal. All of the appetizers we tried (at least 4 of them) were amazing. The ribs and the coconut shrimp were both excellent and their martinis were amazing. My personal favorite was the Greenteani but the dessert martinis were also delicious. The meal itself was perfectly done and just the right amount of food. I didn't feel like I had 3 meals at once as I do in some places, even after all the appetizers. My only complaint is that it was a little bit on the pricier side, but well worth it.

The meal itself was perfectly done and just the right amount of food. I didn't feel like I had 3 meals at once as I do in some places, even after all the appetizers. My only complaint is that it was a little bit on the pricier side, but well worth it.

Pros: food/martinis, location, atmosphere

Cons: price

I went to Red Sky for drinks many times with my friends and we decided to try them for dinner. We could not decide what to order - because everything looked amazing!! We tried the Mac & Cheese with the BBQ potate chip crust and it just melted in our mouths. The Dim Sum for 2 was perfect for our group b/c we got to try a sampling of all their fun appetizers: tuna nachos, springs rolls, ribs, coconut shrimp and even potatoe latkas. For dinner I had the Miso Glazed Chililean Sea Bass which was cooked to perfection. My friends tried the seared tuna, the filet, and the crab cakes and everyone loved their meal. The services was great, the crowd was very fun, and overall it was a great experience. We will definitely be back!

I have been to Red Sky numerous times and every time I am there it is always a great time, especially the bar scene. The best part about Red Sky is the outside cafe that just opened a couple of weeks ago, I enjoy going early and having a few drinks outside, before entering the amazing bar scene filled with fun energetic people and great music. Another great aspect of Red Sky is going up to the mezzanine lounge and being able to over look the entire place from the second floor. Also, I ate at Red Sky a few times and I have to say that the food is excellent, my favorite dishes are the pepper crusted ahi tuna and the chicken thai salad. Overall, I give this restaurant and lounge an A+.

Philly finally got it right! I moved here from New York 2 years ago and this is the 1st restaurant that I have seen that has been able to capture that NY vibe. The decor is very chic and the food is amazing - I have always been a big fan of Audrey Clair's where the executive chef is from but this has completely exceeded my expectations. My wife who is a very picky eater had the almond crusted calamari and seared duck and she will not stop talking about it. I had the tuna Tartare and cheeseburger - which were both hands down the best in the city! Good job guys - you have a winner!
