Overpriced Mexican food and overpriced drinks in an upscale atmosphere. Nice place for a date, but get ready to spend. Food was just so,so. Steak and ceviche were good. It was Valentine's Night, and the place was not totally booked
Plenty of tables.

Was a great Valentine’s Day dinner. The food was so yummy & the service was great. Beautifully designed restaurant with a cool ambiance. We sat in the patio which was perfectly heated. Memorable night!

Awesome, creative menu with a choice for everyone. If you like tequila this should be on the top of you list for this too! Great flights and high end tequilas not found elsewhere. The servers were knowledgeable and attentive , with the ambiance warm and inviting. Can’t say enough good things about my first experience at the Red O.

Went to Red O on Valentines day and received remarkable service from the staff and management. First ordered Two signature drinks that were delicious. Received complimentary chips and salsa, the salsa tasted amazing. Ordered half a dozen oysters that were devoured in moments. And our main course was the dinner for two cowboy rib-eye, perfect medium rare, and lobster that came out on a plate stemming capturing everyone's attention. It was delicious especially with the sides of corn tortillas, guacamole, Spanish rice, black beans, and pico de gallo. Came with flour tortillas also but I personally do not like flour so I did not try them. I definitely would come again. Interested in trying their brunch and happy hour bar.

The redo of the restaurant from Donovan days is really beautifully done. The menu is very creative, and many dishes sound delicious. However, the service was marginal, at best. It was not busy yet the wait staff disappeared and after nicely explaining the menu, our server vanished for a LONG time. We never are in a rush, but this was inexcusable. At a Rick Bayless restaurant, I expected an amazing margarita and food. Neither materialized. The margarita was average or below. My food was lukewarm. The guacamole was not good and presented in a little porcelain white bowl. The chips had been on the table for such a long time they were almost gone, and no new chips were offered. I might return but only if someone we were meeting really wanted to eat there. This restaurant should be a terrific addition to the San Diego latin food scene. It disappoints.
