red door bistro verdict

for everyone who was so helpful, here is a bit of feedback
the bouillabaisse was reportedly very good. My aunt said that the blackened snapper was dry. The menu is not at all "seasonal", rather heavy for summer (cassoulet, confit) , but then it vaunts itself as bistro food, which tends to be on the heavier side anyway. The other guests really enjoyed it, and they said that the wine selection was great and reasonably priced.
Glad you had an enjoyable experience at Red Door. After many attempts i have decided that that particular spot is no longer on the list. I have been multiple times and each time have had terrible food and service. I've been served dishes that sat under the heatlamp way to long and dried out. I ordered 6 oysters with fresh horseradish and waited over half and hour for them (we were one of 2 tables in the place) and when they arrived they had added the horsradish to the oysters themselves rather than serving it on the side (do they put ketchup on your fries for you too?). Not to mention the ice they were served on had melted by the time they got to the table and so the oysters were swimming in water. The only redeming quality as far as my experience shows is a bartender who felt bad charging me $10 for some scotch (obviously he had no idea what scotch was) and so served me a triple pour!
