I found the restaurant to be a little noisy because it was quite full. Other than that, we really enjoyed our time there and the food was excellent. We will definitely be back again.

It was so nice to be back at the Redwood to have lunch with a good friend. I always have the same item, the club wrap, and it was even better than I remembered. Our serves was very pleasant and attentive. Will definitely be back soon.

Our server was amazing! Food was delicious! Looking forward to going back. Only concern was the quality of some of the table tops- we asked to move as the table top was damaged in such a way that was frankly speaking …gross.

I took my friend out for her birthday to the Redwood Grill, We were very pleased with everything. The service was good and fast. The food was delicious, seafood linguini and chicken curry. We even did dessert of the cheesecake with caramel sauce….scrumptious! I would recommend your restaurant to others. We were in the very first booth, so their was not much ambience there!

My friend and I always enjoy the Redwood Grill,the food the friendly staff and their attention.In fact we don't even have to ask for our coffee they know us so well that it is brought to us soon after we are seated.The only problem I have are the size of the newer coffee cups,they are small!!!BUT the coffee is good.Although my friend finds the Decaf coffee can be cold at times.We will be back,Alfreida.

With my sea food allergy, I could not have fries with my burger due to possible cross contamination. If there was room for either another dryer that would be an improvement. Other than that, I love the place and it’s always a great experience!

Held mom's 90th birthday luncheon for 10 yesterday, I arrived early to decorate the table and the table was all set up, which was appreciated. The staff and in particular our server were excellent, giving us a first rate experience. Food was delicious and everyone was served at once, which is always appreciated. The value for what you receive is excellent as well. Great job Redwood Grill, we will be back! Beth E.

I have eaten at the Redwood Grill a few times and the food has always been excellent. Myself and a friend decided to try the "Dine Around" February experience - $30 would get us a shared appetizer and one entree each. We had scallops for the appetizer. They were cooked to perfection but we only got 5 - or - 2.5 scallops each? Great for one person but sparse for two to share. We would have loved one more. I ordered bacon-wrapped tenderloin as my entree and - again - it was cooked to perfection but it was THE smallest piece of pork tenderloin I have ever been served. I would say it was probably 1/3 of a normal serving of pork tenderloin. Also, there was no evidence of stuffing in the tenderloin except for one small piece of spinach. I was over-served on veg and carb to make up for the skimpy pork. My friend had the Beef Stroganoff Linguine and declared it delicious. So the "Dine Around" deal isn't such a great deal. We split the bill and our scallops were $5 each, with our entrees being $10 each to add up to the $30 "deal". This is why I gave our meal a value of 8/10. I gave the ambience an 8/10 because the Redwood Grill is a family restaurant and showed a bit of rough wear around the edges. Overall, a tasty but small meal in comfortable surroundings.

Our group of nine had lunch yesterday . I can speak for all because I heard the comments in that we all enjoyed the flavours and presentations of our meals and the short time it was to wait . All the servers observed care in covid precautions and were very pleasant. Everyone in our group enjoyed having lunch together at the red grill. Your restaurant presents well with spacing and I will be returning for all of the above reasons thanks to all. Cheryl

We had a server who was new and she did did very well. We had a coupon and she figured this out with some support which took some time, but we were happy to wait as we knew she was learning. A concern we did have though was another server in the restaurant (who we have had serve us before) - she was constantly touching her mask and pulling it up and down when she was talking to people and while she was preparing drinks at the bar. This made us both very uncomfortable to say the least and we would not want to have her as our server.
