We had a great evening with friends enjoying great food and service. The hardest thing was deciding what to choose off the menu as it all looked so good.

I was very satisfied with my dining experience at Red Dining. The staff were welcoming and friendly, the atmosphere was comfortable (although it could have been improved by being cooler inside and having quieter music) and the food was great. I would definitely recommend the hearty 'Kiwi Red Roast' pizza and the fruit sorbet (great for sharing and leaves you feeling refreshed). I'll definitely be back.

Excellent food and friendly service made our evening at Red truly memorable. Four generations, my mum, my daughter , granddaughter, husband and I shared bruschetta with cheese and tomato while we waited for our mains. Our daughter was very pleased with the care and attention the server paid to her 2 year old. The children's menu had healthy and tempting choices- no nuggets or bites. The smoked chicken and bacon fettuccine was delicious, but too much for a 2 year old.No problem - a take home box was provided. My mum said her scotch fillet, red wine just and bernaise was faultless. Again the portion was generous with tasty sides of steamed vegetables and beer battered fries. My husband and daughter exclaimed over their seafood pasta and competed to see who had the largest mussels and clams. For once I didn't feel like I 'd chosen poorly. My pumpkin and leek rissoto was perfection topped with crispy chicken. Finally dessert - the ginger trifle has to be tried to be believed. Truly magic. Red's lava cake is already deservedly famous. It did not disappoint.. If it sounds like we were impressed, then my work is done. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The minute we walked in service was first rate.
We had the rawfish as entree with garlic bread, followed by their famous pizza's "Red Baron and Red Barnyard", both having great flavour's and a delicious base.
Would recommend a visit

My friend and I had a great time at RED DINING. The food was excellent and the service was very friendly and swift too. My steak dish was the best I had in ages - and I tend to order scotch at most restaurants I go to. A thick succulent piece cooked to my liking. With fresh crunchy Broccoli and big fries. Red wine jus and onion rings completed the dish well. My friend enjoyed her g/f Saffron Seafood Tagliatelle just as much. Plus she indulged in a lemon Sorbet and was not disappointed. This was a great meal deal and we will definitely be back.

First time diners at Red Dining, 3 of us ordered catch of the day (Snapper), this dish was to die for, it was well presented and the taste absolutely delish, we all highly recommend this dish. The forth person ordered the lamb rump and said it's the best he's has tasted in a long time, so well done Red Dining, will definitely dine with you again and recommend you :)

First table experience was fantastic! I never dine out so this was a a real first. Took my daughter for her 12 birthday she thought it was great food was yummy, atmosphere was nice and cozy also child-friendly. Kids menu was right up her alley... fettuccine with lamb meatballs, and chocolate brownie and icecream. I had seafood linguini (delicious), rhubarb tart, shared salad, a started with drink's. Good size meals, definitely left with full tummies and very affordable. Great experience, a must visit for those who like to dine out , and a definite revisit for me.

Had a great experience at Red Dining. Our waitress was very attentive and explained specials available.
Enjoyed the "Black Prawns, Seafood Chowder" to start off.
Pizza of Red Baron and Red Stampede were a great filler.
Thoroughly enjoyed

The food was great, the service fantastic.All in all a wonderful experience. Probably the only negative was that it got a bit noisy. Staff offered to re-seat us if the music was too loud but the noise was actually from a rather large near-by group. Can't do anything about that- and it was great that the restaurant was so busy on a Monday night

We had a great meal, the steak was cooked to absoluter PERFECTION!! We were the only customers in the restaurant but sadly we felt a bit forgotten and it took a while for our order to be taken and drinks to be refreshed, the staff were lovely though and busy doing other tasks.

Just love eating out here. Their food is so awesome. Tonight we ordered the chicken and brandy pate pot, the pork belly entrée, the red barnyard pizza and the pear, roquette, parmesan salad. Just one serving of each all served in one hit for us to share. Topped off with a glass of pinot gris each, it was primo. Everything was cooked to perfection and that salad I highly recommend. I wanted to pick up the plate and lick it hahahaha. The pork belly had a beetroot coulis that was so tasty! Such an explosion of flavours for the entire lot. If you are ever in Whangarei, this place is a must to dine out. Guarantee you won't be disappointed.

My first time dining out in Whangarei was a success! The team at Red Dining are friendly and cheerful. The pizzas are packed full of toppings (would have preferred shredded chicken on one pizza). We finished off with a gooey chocolate fondant and a gorgeous sticky date pudding that could've been on Masterchef. Thanks for a great night!

The fresh snapper really was fresh- perfectly cooked and full of flavour.
The staff were very professional and we received the best table service we’ve experienced in Whangarei
Faultless in all areas.
