redwhite+bluezz reviews from OpenTable diners
  • From elation to disappointment!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 2/24/2013
    Management's decision to provide an extremely limited Sundy Brunch menu as they prepared to change locations proved to be horribly disappointing for my friends and me. We went to our favorite restaurant expecting to enjoy the outstanding food we've come to love as we said goodbye to the familiar location. Not only were the selections sparse, but I had to send my order back because the food was terrible! Perhaps if/when there's a need to streamline the menu again the managers/owners will take into consideration the fact that customers still want good quality food. At this point I'm reluctant to patronize them at their new location. Special thanks to the manager for his understanding & taking care of my returned meal

    I had the dinner caesar salad with skirt steak. The skirt steak was extremely salty. The salad was two romaine hearts with dressing and cheese. The cheese platter was very good and the selection of wine flights was a nice touch. Too trendy for us.

    DIckson
    Dined on 2/14/2013
    We are going to be 30 minutes late on Valentines day so we call them and notify them on our way. The manager answered the call and professionally told us that as it is all booked, he will hold the table for us for 15 mintues. So we rushed and finally get there around 16 minutes behind our origianlly appointment. The manager greed us in and told us that he will hold the table for us even though we are more than 15 mintues behind as he knows we are on our way. He also asked us two times whether we are satisfy with our table as we are sitting right next to the brand which will be noise. We appreciate his professional manner and will definitely recommend to our friends who also love jazz music and good food. Prices are great.

    The food was decent, but way overpriced. Our waiter was ok, but kept forgetting what I requested. I would only go back for appetizers and for the music. DO NOT try the Key Lime cocktail. It is way bitter. But do try the sweet potato fries.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    AMAZING. This is by far the BEST Dine LA meal we have had and we do this a lot. Every bite of food was great. Out of 7 different items that we tried, only one was not a winner (Wine poached apple salad). I would recommend them a thousand times over and my husband and I look forward to going back. We looked up the restaurant to find out more about the chef, and this young chef has an amazing career ahead of him. Thank you for the wonderful meal and great music.

    Dined on 2/1/2013
    Terrific experience! My partner and I attended the restaurant because of their participation in DineLA. The food was amazing - the tasting portions were satisfying and the flavor balance was exquisite. I can't wait to go back to taste what is on their regular menu. Service was very good as a whole; water glasses were regularly refilled, wine offered, and plates promptly removed. My only minor hesitation to saying service was excellent was rushing to give us the check before we had an opportunity to order after-dinner drinks. Excellent experience all around (how can you beat good food, good company, and good jazz?)

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 1/31/2013
    I usually always rave about redwhite+bluezz as my experience with their Sunday Brunch is awesome! But after our DineLA dinner last night, I felt disappointed. The crab cakes appetizer were good; two large crab cakes but could've been more crispy. The salad dishes were just okay; we shared the poached apple salad and the proscuitto & persimmon salad...not memorable, trying to be too fancy and the flavors didn't come together for us. My braised short ribs were tender and tasty. Had the "apple pie in a jar" but we had to ask our waiter for the Fosselman's vanilla bean ice cream which was to come with it. Overall it was just an okay dining experience. I think I'll just keep to their Sunday Brunch and live music by Brother Yusef.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 1/26/2013
    I'm going to ignore the fact that the restaurant seated us with our reservation and then told OpenTable that we never showed. Although that's annoying. The place is loud - the jazz is good, but loud - and thus it's not ideal for people wanting to talk with their dinnermates. We got the four course meal, which ran $45 per person (not $40 as advertised). I ordered the four wine glass taster for $20, which was non-memorable. The place screwed up our order entirely twice, but gave us all the wrong food AND our entire order, comped. The food was a bit flavorless, and for $45, I could have done a LOT better elsewhere. I'd recommend this place once for the jazz, but not for the food.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2001VIP
    Dined on 1/13/2013
    Went in for Sunday brunch. The food was very tasty. Good selection of southern inspired menu items with a modern twist. Ambience was fun and lively, especially with a very talented jazz/blues guitarist playing throughout the morning/afternoon. However, all of this paled to the very poor service we received. The apathetic waitress was annoyed by any request we made, including giving her our order, and it took her anywhere from 25 - 45 minutes to check in on us with any regularity. Left a sour note on what would have been a good brunch.

    A great place for Sunday Brunch! I love the many different choices on their menu. I ordered the shrimp with grits and eggs which was wonderful! I would order the same dish again. Our waiter was attentive and considerate. I also loved the $15 (limitless) champagne which went well with my meal. Most of all, the live music of Brother Yusef, made our dining experience perfect!

    First time back in a few years. Spur of the moment, looking for a cozy place reminiscent of dinners past in wintry Manhattan. Feels like a one-of-a-kind spot, maybe Union Sq-esque. Excellent service, wine recommendation by Amy W. Excellent food, rare filet prepared perfectly with a cool blue center. Now on our list of favorite spots.

    I had received a gift card for the restaurant last Christmas but did not have the opportunity to use it till recently. My husband suggested we go to Red White & Bluezz to celebrate my birthday along with another couple. We was surprised at the warm, quaint, romantic ambiance. I thought, "blues", it would be a much louder, more of a rowdy atmosphere. I couldn't have been more wrong. The food was delicious, the service was absolutely wonderful and the selection of cocktails was interesting as well. The music was just what we had been looking for to dine with. Jazzy, familiar tunes. The overall experience was a perfect birthday celebration. We are happy to say we have found that spot for a good meal and some really cool music.

    We chose RW&B for New Year's Eve dinner and were not disappointed.We elected to order from the menu rather than have the $75 fixed price special The jazz was mellow so we we not blown away by the noise level. Service was prompt and knowledgeable. We had an excellent $45 bottle of white that lasted through the meal for three people. The food was very good, though my wife sent her plate back as her fish entree was not hot. My rack of lamb was lukewarm but edible. Otherwise, we were happy. No dessert was ordered

    RWB is one of my favorite go-to fine dining establishments. The food is delicious and remarkably consistent. Wine list is excellent and wine flights cover the palate ranges from, bold and adventurous to classics. RWB could benefit by improving the speed of cocktail and wine flight service. It is consistently slow. It appears that the bar has difficulty keeping up with the volume of orders.

    I ordered Pan-seared Chicken and it was just alright. My friend's Kobe Beef Burger was a O.K., too. The service was great. They started playing live jazz around 7:15pm so the ambiance turned even better. I was planning to run a 10k the next morning so I didn't drink anything. But since I know they have a good wine list, I'd like to go back for that. If the food selection was a little more varied, it would be helpful as well.
