Enrique’s has become our go-to place for Tuesday night dinners. The combination of the fantastic food, friendly and efficient service, and the Enrique’s Jazz Trio is hard to beat! Great music! Great Food! Great People! Enrique’s is one of Redondo’s hidden treasures!

We came here for Easter and everyone really enjoyed their food. I had the Chicken and Churros which was simply scrumptious! Others ordered the Tequila French Toast and the Tacos. Service was great and we all really liked the hip, cantina vibe. We all came away with "why haven't we been here before?! Definitely going back. There's parking in back of restaurant.

Every time I’ve been this place delivers - date night, happy hour after work, Jazz night, or brunch. One of the best spots in the South Bay.

Live jazz so loud we couldn't hear each other, food is trying to hard and just okay, service was spotty. I'm thinking this place is really a bar that has dinner options. I would recommend for a good drink and appetizers.

Good food and friendly but slow service. We got our food before our drinks. The crab cakes were awesome. Our dinner started off at a good noise level but as the night wore on the restaurant got more crowded and it was very loud.

The food quality and presentations were the best parts of this new restaurant. That being said, we were not impressed. It’s very small and very loud. The service was just fair and food was very slow to come out of the kitchen. Our server told us the kitchen was backed up- which was very kind of him. We were enjoying our appetizers and drinks so we really didn’t mind. The margaritas were nothing special and extremely overpriced for what they were. They didn’t even serve them in a margarita glass, and my lime was old and brown, not fresh and green. If we return, we will definitely not be having margaritas.

Its really more a bar than a restaurant. The lunch options are small, appetizer size with no sides. The guacamole was pre-made and refrigerated, pretty bad. The salsa was likely canned. Its a cute spot, service was friendly but the food and drinksleave a lot to be desired

We had the opportunity to meet one of the owners, Omar on the way into the restaurant. He was awesome and shared his experience in opening the restaurant. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. We look forward to going back and checking out the breakfast menu very soon.

Enrique’s is just fantastic. The food is great. The Owner and his staff are a pure joy to spend an evening with, and the Garland Campbell Jazz Trio (only performing on Tuesday nights) is not only a group of talented musicians, they are just plain fun! Highly Recommended for great evening of food, music and fun!

Overall, we were kind of disappointed. Our waitress didn't tell us about any daily specials, she failed to keep our water glasses full and didn't bring more salsa after we asked. This is a very small restaurant that feels crowded because they made the bar way too big. Speaking of the bar - $l3 for a margarita that was mostly ice is not the way to encourage repeat customers. The ceviche appetizer was ok - way too small of a glass that made sharing difficult. All the meals were all good - we enjoyed the Chicken breast, Shrimp Taco appetizer and Seafood Cioppino special. Smaller portions except fort the special. Upscale with a Mexican flair - they describe as "whimsical" - Not a fan, but clearly lots of other neighbors seem to love it.

Waitress was excellent, food was great. One of the owners was there greeting all of the tables. The rack of Lamb was cooked perfectly. The only downside was noise. It was a little noisy. Not too noisy to have a conversation., so, don't read this incorrectly, if you like a place with background noise arising because people are enjoying themselves, you will like this restaurant. We will go back.

Very nice experience. Service was excellent, the owner too came around to say hello. The food was very good and they have some signature dishes. Drinks was great too, I loved their Old Fashioned. Over all this place is worth visiting.

Our cocktail order took 20min and then came one by one, after we asked several times. Busboy was more on top of it than our server. Paella had tiny shrimp but salmon dish was xlnt. Patience is needed at this place

Realm enjoyed our first visit. Friendly staff, great food, nice to have a fun new option close to home. We shared several apps and entrees — all were good, interesting. Didn’t explore drinks but but had to try dessert between 5 of us. We will be back.
