Our Review

Red Kiva is just too damn likable for its own good. It wants to be an obnoxious lounge with burly list-wielding bouncers and music too loud to do anything but shriek over, but instead comes across as a nice friendly neighborhood bar, relaxed and relaxing. Service too is relaxed; be prepared to wait, especially if it's a little busy. The menu is right to the point: a few mixed drinks including martinis and cosmos, a pretty good mojito, and excellent, not overly sweet concoctions like the Diablo Punch (Absolut Peach, pomegranate juice, and club soda). There's also a wide assortment of wines and champagnes by the bottle, but only a couple by the glass, none very distinguished--old standby Veuve Clicquot comes by the glass, though, as does a nice prosecco and 12 beers on draft. You can get any kind of food you want as long as what you want is pizza, made fresh in an Italian oven in the tiny kitchen. There's a margherita, two with prosciutto, and another with artichoke hearts. The patrons all seem to be coming from or leaving for other spots on West Randolph, but if you want a pleasant spot for a drink and a bite on restaurant row, Red Kiva will do nicely.
