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. I had a great time and to be totally honest...... The F*@king waitresses at this place are REDONKULOUS. Definately going back again this weekend.

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

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!

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!

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 :)

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.
