My family and I went to the Red Osier today for an 80th birthday celebration for my mom. I have heard so many good things about the Red Osier, and after my dinner today.... all I can say is... REALLY? Our waiter was very rude and now I know why.... it's because the gratuity was already written into our bill--- so he didn't have to be nice to us!! As for the food--Applebee's has better ribs than the Red Osier!! My ribs had so much fat on them that I couldn't eat around the fat! And my sons' filet mignons looked like hamburger patties! One of my sons ordered the broiled haddock.... it looked like a small perch!! We were not offered coffee, but rather, we had to ask our rude waiter for coffee when he was getting dessert requests. I will never be going back to the Red Osier again. This experience left a bad taste in my mouth!!
every time i go there i was dragged and wished i stayed home-because each time was a disapointment- but being local my friends and family get to pick the resturant at times and i get stuck-this rest has bee a place i have been in abt 25 times -since i was a kid- i had so many bad dinners or something gross would come up- first the decor is shabby- not shabby chic- just shabby-old and out of style--the place smells like a old folks home- they are trying to skimp any way for so many yrs i can't believe they r still open--the caesar salads made tableside have a dressing that isnt made tableside which defeats the purpose, totally --the blue cheese dressing is watered down and contains cottage cheese and feta cheese -no flavor---the pay extra for blue cheese crumbles were feta -a joke---the rolls are like ones u get at a diner and hard mini muffins that r more like a desert than dinner fare--savory /sweet---the au jus is made obviously from boullion not natural drippings, the prime rib grey and not seasoned well on the outside before or after cooking-most times the baked pot are overcooked and the potatoes with blue cheese tasted foul- the most foul was one order i had of shrimp over linguini-scampi style--it smelled like a dirty fish tank-unedible and my stomach turned -couldnt eat- mgt rude -didnt take off bill but my i and dinnermates were made to feel uncomfortable by mgt and i didnt get anything else-but still pd for the returned dish--they should have been so embarrassed 6 people at table all confirmed the bad smell-wouldnt taste-how gross--and mgt acted pompous instead of apologetic---one time we waited for service and table so long it was after the early bird hr and they should have given the specials as we waited forever to be seated-they wouldn't honor the special and acted rudely giving us cold meals and poor service.--they make promotions and then act like nazis enforcing limitations and regulations so u can't use your promotional coupons like they gave them to u instead of the fact u purchaSED THEM- $100.00 to get $ 20 00 and then so many rules they wont take them and i lost $2 at $20 ---better off as 90% of time dinner really sucks there and i just hope people can use gift cards cause these cheap skimpy cut corners to make a buck management people dont care about the food or mgt quality--to them the customers are their ticket to profit not respected or appreciated at all----do some remodeling and start making good food asd u have on and off for yrs -mostly off----and that watery soup--i am scared as ur so cheap in every other way- that u may use table scraps cut up in the blah- tasteless soup as u serve spoiled shrimp scampi

I ate here 12-30-2010. Had the Irish shepherd pie and prime rib soup. The food actually made me ill it was so salty. the service was great but they never asked how the food was. the comment link and the contact form on the site does not work. so they will not get my comments.
I have dined at the Red Osier Landmark more times than I can count over the past twenty years. Terrific food, great service, reasonable prices, and a really nice ambience and setting. Whether I bring a business client, my wife, my family or just meet some friends, it has always been a great experience. My friends, some from Buffalo, some from the Rochester area, who have gone there rave about their meals...and how welcome they feel. And its not just about prime rib...great seaffod dishes....a real varied menu, and a cozy bar. I sure like going there...and I genererally don't get there before 7p.m. so I don't know about the early bird specials.
Red Osier is my parents' favorite restaurant -- which pretty much sums up this very popular local landmark. The prime rib is great and their "early bird specials" are a great value. Not sure what the meals are like after 6 pm -- my parents won't eat after 5:30.

Only 5 miles from our residence, we've dined at the Red Osier over 100 times in 11 years. Lately, it has been so busy that reservations have maxed out capacity 2 weeks in advance. You must call for reservations. Menu has change twice over the past decade, and quality is now back up to where it was 5-10 years ago. Great bar, great service, huge menu, and delectable beef choices make this one of Genesee County's best destinations.
