Nourish your appetite with Luna Red’s tantalizing mix of tapas, European staples and global creations.
From house-cured duck prosciutto and local goat cheese, to tapas that include such gems as stuffed piquillo peppers or arancini balls, served with local mushrooms, leeks and a tomato jam— and those are just the starter plates. For an entrée, you’ll have a hard time deciding—we offer dishes from around the world such as Portuguese seafood stew with housemade chorizo or Korean style short ribs with housemade kimchee. We have something for every discerning palate. Each selection combines a perfect balance of flavors and represents a kaleidoscope of cuisines. Warm yourself. Delight in luna red.

Luna Red is a great place for tapas - amazing cheese selection and fresh veggies - all locally grown and purchased. This is a fabulous date restaurant if you are looking for a place to have a drink and share some food. Be warned - Thursday nights and Friday nights in the summer you really need reservations since it is down town and there are a lot of activities going on.

We had four tapas that were excellent. The waiter did an excellent job in advising us as well. We have a dear friend back home that has a Tapas restaurant & I kept sending him pictures & descriptions of what we were eating. Can't wait to go back & try some of the lamb dishes..The entire staff was very well in tune.

The shrimp adobo - great flavor, if you like coconut curry flavor you'll live this one. Our other favorites were wildboar ribs & pork belly. Lastly, lived the chorizo stuffed dates. The only item.that was average was the calamari. But maybe because the other tapas were amazing. Also, liked that you could order half glasses of wine.

The outdoor dining looked very pleasant but they sat us inside, and in a corner though they were not busy inside. This became more frustrating when a couple came in and were given a larger table near us. Still we enjoyed the food very much. The small plates are great for sharing. The highlights were the cornbread and mac n' cheese. I only gave the service three stars because the food came out very slowly, which was disconcerting considering that it was not busy inside at all. What should have been a 1 hr 15 min meal took 2 hours. Our server was very pleasant though. Worth another try; they might have been short-staffed on that particular night.

My reservation from several weeks prior asked for a table overlooking the creek but we didn't get one on the creek. Unfortunate. The tapas were very good but the service was slow and we decided to go elsewhere for the main course rather than stay. That too was unfortunate. The server was friendly and informative but not very available.

Our server Kristen was vivacious, attentive and knowledgable about the menu and the wine list.the highlights of the meal were the stuffed piquillo peppers, fish tacos & the chicken empandas. Kristen's wine recommendation was spot on. The patio dining was perfect, except for my wife's need to have a heat lamp right on top of us ;-). Overall a great experience and I look forward to returning.

Our waitress was attentive, friendly and gave excellent recommendations. We never ran out of water or clean plates for the various courses. We started with the "Wine Picnic" meat and cheese plate and then had the Piquillo Peppers, Beet Carpaccio, Lamb Skewers and the Skirt Steak. Dessert was amazing! We did the Luna Dulce so we could try a little bit of everything and it was completely worth it! Great place to go out for a peaceful and relaxing dinner with friends.

However, the service seems to be an afterthought. Each time we visit, we comment about the wonderful meal, but the terrible service. This visit, we sat for several minutes before we were greeted at our table. We were given the drink specials and then we asked our server to give us a few minutes to decide - much to our surprise, our server never returned to our table. More than twenty minutes later, we decided to leave and found another restaurant around the corner with excellent food and service. We still recommend Luna Red, but have very low expectations for the service.

We wanted to do our dinner tapas-style, ordering as we made decisions, and he was accommodating and attentive. He helped us decide on an excellent wine to go with our appetizer and answered all of our questions well. He was a pleasure to work with.

Food was amazing! We ordered a varied selection ( tuna ceviche, asparagus salad to pork belly and meatballs and everything in-between ) everything came out in a timely fashion and was coursed wonderfully. The rhubarb tart, Mexican chocolate cake and house made ice cream were the perfect note to end on.

While the food was excellent, we can find better value in the San Francisco/Bay Area for similar cuisine and ambiance. Not sure many people (students and professors at Cal Poly) could afford to dine there frequently. Great sangria!

We had a double date and got to try so many different things. The cocktail menu is as diverse as the wine selection. If you're looking for a restaurant that has it all, you shouldn't miss Luna Red.

Despite the fact that we were younger, they didn't discriminate against us as some nicer places usually do. I originally thought the food was a bit pricy for the portion but its packed with so much flavor that it fills you up and makes it worth every penny. Our waiter was great. Definitely coming back here more often!

Plenty of wait help on hand, but they seemed a bit disorganized. When serving tapas, shouldn't you automatically offer clean plates for sharing? Except for windows to creek, the interior bar/dining area seems quite dark. Perhaps a few brighter decorative highlights could brighten it a bit? The view of San Luis Creek is good, but neighboring merchants should band together to keep it clean (a couple of tossed chairs were lying in the water this time). 3 stars overall; could be 4 with a little polish...

The cocktails are progressive and delicious. The home recipe mac and cheese is to die for with the chorizo add. Just a fabulous, global meal. The bar was active and colorful. The restaurant was very professionally run and sophisticated. Overall a fantastic experience.

We sat outside (plenty of heaters to keep you cozy on a chilly night) it was a beautiful night. The service was amazing, food was excellent. I believe the menu changes monthly. Tapas style dining, lots of choices. I recommend this place for any occasion.

The table was in a corner, private and nice but was a bit loud. We did not mind as we were on vacation from LA and just wanted to relax and unwind. The waitress was a delight. We found a nice Ancient Peaks wine called Renegade. A nice blend of 2010 syrah, malbac, and petit verdot. We opted to try their smaller dishes and had the scallops, the pork belly, and the shrimp to start. Very tasty. Before this we tried the oysters they had on deck and were happy with this as well. We finished off with the coppa and rock blue cheese that had an amazing flavor (our favorite) The waitress brought a nice mustard seed, apricot marmalade to spread on the toast and was the perfect combination to the wine, cheese, and coppa.

Service was a bit slower-paced than I expected but they were pretty busy (especially for 6pm). It was so dark in the dining room, however, that we were 1 of 4 tables using flashlights and iphone lights to read the menu! Will definitely go back. Hope they make it in this location, as their predecessors have been many.

The dates with chorizo, crab fritters, and stuffed peppers were all excellent appetizers. The beet salad was very nice. And the chicken and skirt steak were wonderful entrees. Great ambiance too. Definitely recommended, and we'll be back.
