No ifs, ands, or buts about it. We couldn't have been more impressed. Try the lobster risotto, you'll thank me--promise.

My wife and I are celebrating our 30 wedding anniversary and, based upon TripAdvisor restaurant reviews, decided to have dinner at Red Sky. We were not disappointed. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The waitress, upon learning that it was our anniversary, brought a complimentary glass of champagne to the table. We ordered mussels as an appetizer. The mussels... More

We went on a Monday night, having made reservations the week before, which turned out to be a good idea because they were jammed, at least at 7:30. For such a busy restaurant, we were pleasantly surprised that we could actually have a conversation between the four of us at our table for 4 in the centre of the room... More

We come each year for dinner during our Bar Harbor vacation. Reservations are your best bet, especially on weekends. There is some bar seating, but never enough for the walk-ins we see get turned away. I don't think there are more than 15 tables at most. There are works from local artists on the walls. Generally the windows cool the... More

We enjoyed this peaceful, elegant restaurant off Main Street in Southwest Harbor. Be sure to get a reservation, as we saw those without them enduring waits by the door (we had a reservation and were seated immediately). The only reason we gave Red Sky 4 stars instead of 5 is that the service was quite slow (dinner & dessert took... More

Overall we were very satisfied with our experience at Red Sky. Food is very good to execellent (the chocolate pudding dessert especially! I don't remember the name exactly, but it was much more than just chocolate pudding). While the service was slightly slow, I prefer a leisurely meal. The duck and chicken main courses were both very good. You won't... More

My husband and I are not sure why the reviews on this place were so positive. The food was bland, the drinks weak, the service slow and prices high. Had a much better meal at the Fiddlers Green up the street.

I would highly recommend this restaurant! The service was outstanding - very attentive - water glasses kept full. Servers had excellent knowledge of the menu and wines and were able to give fantastic descriptions to help patrons choose between dishes. really, it was quite amazing. The wine list was extensive and the dishes very creative. I had a difficult time... More

In spite of its deserved accolades for being the best restaurant on Mount Desert Island, this restaurant threw it all away for us with terrible service. They couldnt have cared less and various requests were ignored or attended a half hour later. There are better options within 1/4 mile of this overrated restaurant.
