    This is my 4th time at Red-O, It did not disappoint. Red O does not serve basic mexican food. Instead, the selections are elevated, and gourmet. The dining room is large, beautiful and very comfortable., with both booths and tables throughout. As we were seated warm chips and a thick salsa were place on our table. We added guacamole, which was far better than your average guac. For dinner we ordered Fish tacos and carnitas. Both gourmet, ample and delicious. Our server, at our request recommended wine choices to go with our meal. She was right on. As it was a Birthday dinner we were treated a piece of Tres Leche Cake... Also delicious. Only negative,, parking a bit of a pain, as it is in a parking structure, so knowing this we valet parked, for $10.00. Bottomline, we will be coming back again, as it is likely the best Mexican Food in San Diego.

    The service was pathetic, they started clearing table while we were still eating. The server delivered ice cream dessert while we were still working our dinner plates, it’s common sense by the time we could get to ice cream it was all melted. The food tasted ok not worth the money. Overall it was bad experience.

    We went for Saturday Brunch. This was our first time at this Red O. Very quiet, good food--short rib benedict was excellent. Easy to get to plus free parking. Our waitress was nice enough to slip our order in ahead of a table of 12.

    I’ve eaten at this restaurant numerous times, this time, the service was sub par. The waiter actually bordered on rude. My coworker who is a vegetarian asked if they could make a quesadilla and the waiter said no, it’s not on the menu. They have done this numerous times in the past. That, coupled with the wildly increased pricing, means this will likely be the last time we visit this restaurant.

    Great experience. Really pretty interior, well designed and aesthetic. Food had good flavor, I asked for super spicy and they delivered! Drinks were okay. Lamb was seasoned really well but we asked for med rare and they brought it out medium. Still tender and delish, so we were not complaining! Highly recommend the Fundido app, delish, flavorful and easy to share.
