Reds Midtown Tavern is a cozy, elegant restaurant steps away from the Eaton Center and Dundas Square. I hadn’t been there since I visited for their grand opening a couple of years ago, so I was happy to go and try their steak!

Reds offers up an array of dishes, from pan roasted salmon, to burgers, to braised lamb shank.Take a peek at their full menu here.

You are also able to order wine by the glass. This is a fun way to taste different types of wines! Reds serves an assortment of wine on this menu from California exclusively.

I tasted a Chardonnay from Santa Barbara Winery, which ended up pairing quite well with my steak.

I remembered really enjoying their Crispy Potato Flatbread ($12.55) at the launch, so I decided to start our meal with that.

The flatbread was just as tasty as I remembered. The light, crispy bread is fried and topped  with fresh arugula, shaved parmesan cheese, sweet garlic, chimichurri aioli, slow-roasted tomato and balsamic gastrique. Yum.

Reds serves up high quality steaks in a variety of cuts at an affordable price. Top Sirloin, New York, Rib Eye and Filet Mignon are all available.

I settled on the Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon.Topped with blue cheese garlic butter and crumbled blue cheese, the steak was packed with flavour and a good value at $20.85.
All steaks come with your choice of side. Sides include: fully loaded baked potato, French fries, mashed potatoes, heirloom carrots, knife and fork Caesar salad and a garden salad. Lots of options! If none of those strike your fancy, you can upgrade to a premium side. For $3.50, you can enjoy patatas bravas, sautéed mushrooms
beets three ways with fresh pressed goat cheese, baby kale and quinoa salad
or my favourite, truffle parmesan fries.

The seasoned truffle fries were my favourite side.

My lunch date upgraded to hearty patatas bravas with his 14 oz Rib eye steak. ($19.95). He enjoyed it! We both agreed that we would try the Oscar Sirloin steak next time. (Topped with lobster, crab & shrimp, sautéed in tabasco butter, hollandaise sauce and chives).

We were very full, but somehow found room for dessert!

Sticky Toffee Pudding ($7.95), a warm medjool date pudding with apple bourbon, caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream.

Overall, we had a lovely and delicious meal at Reds!
