The Red Onion is currently at the top of it's game. The ambience, service and food are on par with some of the finest Parisian cafe's. The Red Onion is not a French Restaurant per se, but has all of the warm classic appeal in lovely West Saugerties. The mussels are to die for.

We nearly drove by the place. Kind of a beat up looking yellow farmhouse with garden desperately in need of love; but some nice porch sittin'! The interior is painted with a rich dark red color. Eating areas spaced out (over 3 rooms, that I could see). Nice bar dead center. Unobstrusive but nice background music. Our waitress was lovely... More

Thank you for the kind words. However, my gardener would take exception if she read your review. You are aware that it is the middle of winter in upstate,NY and no gardens are in bloom. Come back in summer and you will marvel at the green thumb of Gardening Angels! The front area is fairly bursting with flowers both perennial... More

My family and I loved this charming rural restaurant. The food was delicious. The cod and seafood risotto were awesome. The place was pretty busy considering it was Wednesday but it was well worth it.

We sat at the bar. Our bartender was fine - not overly friendly by any means, but he got the job done. The bread was really delicious. We also ordered french fries, which were tasty (they use peanut oil for frying), but not quite the authentic hand cut style i was hoping for. The ceasar salad was delish, one of... More

I made a reservation as they have quite the following, and I asked for a table in a warm location (it has been a problem in the past). Well, this time it was more than a problem, it was downright ridiculous. The three of us froze, and we were all dressed for below average indoor temperatures. A table that came... More

Visited the Red Onion this week after driving by it for the last couple years. Glad we did. We had a reservation (suggested) and we're seated upon our arrival about 10 minutes early. Host was friendly, waitress at table in a minute and the rustic but classy dining room was cozy with a bit of a buzz of noise and... More
