The views, vibe and cuisine were all amazing. Four of us sat casually at a couch and armchairs with small tables. This added a contemporary laidback feel to the high end bar and restaurant. Everyone enjoyed the quirky but delicious cocktails and the numerous sharing plates. Highlights were the flank steak and Salmon poke. It was my second time at Reds and I will definitely be going back.

Reds is an amazing cocktail bar! Great cocktails, and other drinks, experienced staff that really know the drinks and the menu so are able to make good recommendations. A really nice spot to stay put with a good friend or group and enjoy a space where you can hear yourselves talk. e had cocktails and some share plates. The mixed cheese and meat platter hit the spot brilliantly, as did dessert to follow. We highly recommend an evening here - make sure you don't have to drive because the drinks are just soooo good. :)

Reds Bar at the QT Queenstown was the perfect end to a long day. We did indeed utter “wowsah” as the website had promised! Warm and inviting setting with low lighting and intimate seating options available. We selected low tables with comfortable couches, perfect for the two kids in tow. Mouth-wateringly tender flank steak paired with sharp smoked onion, smooth king fish cerviche, crispy chicken and more was delivered with great timing to share and devoured. Cool casual but attentive service matched the environment. A great red wine recommendation. Next time we visit we will stay too to be closer to this wonderful dinning experience! Thank you.

This was our first First Table experience and it exceeded our expectations! The actual booking was so easy to do online and we found a table at Reds for that evening! The food at Reds was so good and we had a mixture of the 'Sharesies' which were like large tapas dishes. The steak melted in your mouth. Really impressed and the waitress who served us all night was so friendly and attentive. Can't wait for our next First Table.

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Reds, it had a great atmosphere and beautiful views over Lake Wakatipu. The food was delicious and generous.

It was the ideal place to celebrate our second wedding anniversary! A great feeling of privacy, a chilled out atmosphere, Nicola was our host waiter, he was very friendly and helpful, special thanks to him! We had a wonderful time soaking up the view, relaxing with a good glass of wine and good tunes! All a couple needed to enjoy a special moment!

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Reds. Good variety of fresh and tasty options. We ordered a number to share and were hard pressed to pick a favourite as all were excellent, though the tuna poke bowl won out. All meals well proportioned and priced. Excellent cocktails and wine list. Friendly and informative service. Thank you :)

Great service, and amazing food.
The Poke bowl was brilliant, as well as the shaved octopus.
Quiet and relaxed, and a special mention to the girl that served us, she was well presented, had great knowledge and I would return for her service, nothing was too hard and really made us feel like we were old friends - and exceptional staff member, well done!!!

We had just missed the light but still could imagine the terrific view it would afford. The food was to a good standard though, I didn’t score it five stars as the beef was not so melt in mouth as others had reviewed it.

Relaxed vibe with THE most extensive array of sprits I’ve ever seen at a bar. Superb mojoito’s.
Chose 3 plates to share: mussels, haloumi and salmon poke. All were excellent.
Concept works well to enjoy over a drink.

Underwhelming. Firstly - Place was near impossible to find as voucher had a street address with no mention it was inside the Ridges Hotel. Then no Phone number to contact. Wait staff were pleasant and personable, but little atmosphere. Despite being only 2 of 4 people in the bar, The shared "Tapas" took 40 minutes to arrive ...and my steak tapas was cold. Best part of the evening was a great sav blanc recommendation ...thx

Our experience at Reds was exceptional. The waitress was super helpful showing us around the menu. Bar staff were awesome, guiding me to a very nice glass of Chardonnay. The cocktails were to die for. Food was awesome, and we loved the shared plates. Thanks to the waitress for the recommendations. Great evening.

First time we’ve used First Table. Unfortunately Reds disappointed. The place was very quiet and service very average. What we wanted on the menu wasn’t available. No lobster, no tuna and the removal of the seafood from the limited menu was blamed on the long weekend. We felt it was because we were using first table. It seemed that the staff were all made aware we were using it and were served accordingly. Reds in in the Rydges Hotel. It would be best to state this as access is available via Rydges instead of going up the hill via Brunswick St. We will try first table again but not the best experience this time.

This was by far the best experience we have had of tasting platters. We have five plates and a shared dessert. Each offered different, wonderful flavours and had that WOW factor. We would certainly give the experience a five star rating! The liqour selection was also commendable and fairly priced. Well done Red.
