Success! Thanks for posting your review of Red Sea Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

What a disappointment!

My first experience (about a year ago) at the Red Sea was quite enjoyable...the food was outstanding, the shrimp HUGE and so tasty! So last night I was craving some good tasting shrimp and lentils, my boyfriend, a friend, and I went up to the Red Sea around 7pm on Friday night. The waitress, although friendly, had no idea what was on the menu...they did not have ice tea or diet coke and our water had black stuff f... view more

Alright if the mood hits 'ya and if your in the area

My wife and I ate at this place this evening. The appetizer of lemon shrimp was outstanding! However, the main meal was good and not so good. I had the beef and my wife had the chicken. My dinner, depending on which piece I had, was either tender or tough. My wife's chicken lacked flavor and a bit tasteless. The vegatable sides were good, and the bread was outstanding. Drinks were good. I'd be willing to give this pl... view more

Avoid at all costs

I had the very worst dining experience here just last night. On a Sunday night, we arrived at 6:30pm, there was 1 other table eating. We waited over an hour for our food - which never arrived due to our impatience - we left. Paid for our drinks, didn't even bother to ask to be comp'd the drinks due to the unbelievable wait time. We had the worst service, a bartender was also serving that didn't know the menu, so ... view more

Great variety of activities and great food

My favorite restaurant and spot for music is the Red Sea. I started going there around 20 years ago since I love Ethiopian food. When I returned to St. Louis for a couple of months, I started eating there again and the food and service continues to be excellent in a funky atmosphere.\r \r Now, I discovered that they have great Reggae music on Friday and Saturday nights and shows and open mikes almost every night.... view more

Avoid this place

We decided to go to The Red Sea since every place else was very busy and they weren't - that and the bathroom like smell upon entering should have been the first sign. The waitress avoided us like the plague and it took over 40 minutes to order. We kept seeing food being brought to the table next to us and every time we saw a plate coming our way we became excited thinking our food was finally coming. An hour late... view more

What a disappointment

I had lunch at Red Sea recently, and was quite disappointed. The service was poor, the staff seemed very disorganized. I'm not much of a stickler, but the place just disn't seem clean or well maintained.\r \r The food was somewhat acceptable, but not to the standards of Ethiopian places I've been in Chicago.\r \r I was there many years ago and have better memories of that experience. I couldn't currently recom... view more

Dont go if you are hungry!

It is unfourtunate that this is the only ethiopian restaurant in STL. Although the food is decent, you will most likely wait 90 minutes to get it - 2 hours if you want injera (which usually comes out after you are finished eating). Your appetizer will usually come out after the main course. The staff is not the friendliest either, but I think that is because noone stays there for long. One time I brought a group ... view more

Let's Call It The Dead Sea!

\r \r My daughter and I absolutely ""LOVE"" Ethiopian food. We went to the Red Sea in hopes of enjoying real ""Ethiopian"" food as we had in Tampa & Jacksonville, FL. NOT!!! Upon entering,the restaurant had an unclean odor. The decor was neuvo Salvation Army. Hmmm, no hummus on the menu. I was served a very hot(not spicy) chicken over a bed of rice. My daughter was served 2 chicken legs bone and all.(Or as my gran... view more

Simply Awful

This is not even close to being an Ethiopian restaurant! My family and I went there with high hopes of tasting true authentic Ethiopian food, like we have had in the past in Tampa and in Jacksonville - boy were we ever highly disappointed. First of all, the place had a very unclean, stale, musty odor to it. We adjusted to the odor and sat down at the table. Next was the drinks - we were looking for Ethiopian tea ... view more
