lovely vibe, wine, food, service
The happy hour menu items were excellent, interesting and tasty. We also ordered from the main dinner menu and enjoyed the trio of enchiladas. Honestly, we almost didn't order from the main menu - what a mistake that would have been. The enchiladas were amazing! Highly recommended! Our waitress was great and funny and just the right amount of attentive. We will be going back and taking others in our family to share the great experience.
Great for work meetings during lunch as it was not noisy and you could hear each other speak. Food was great as always.
Food and service were great, however, the food took an incredibly don’t time to be served. Appetizers took around 45 minutes. Great place but needs faster serving times.
Love this place! Food is always so delicious. We loved it all. Happy hour is such a value. Even the margaritas for $10 were spectacular.
Fantastic brunch, great environment!
Chef Martin is amazing, the food was delicious and the service was great. It's one of my favorite restaurants.
The vibe & food there is impeccable! The service was great, had reservations at 8 & they were running a bit behind so we had to wait a bit, manager came out & gave us complimentary champagne for the inconvenience. Food was 10/10 as well as drinks, overall a great restaurant!
The food was disappointing. My first thought was tourist food, instead of good Mexican cuisine. Nothing was bad. It came out timely. It was warm and nicely presented. Everyone did a great job. I liked the selection on the menu and had a hard time deciding between three attractive items. Unfortunately the chips were a little stale. The salsa was very tomato pasty. I had the waiter recommended lobster and shrimp enchiladas, but they were overly sweet, like they added a bunch of sugar to the tomatillo sauce. I needed to put a lot of refried beans and rice on it to dilute the sweetness and give it some flavor. My wife had the tortilla soup and the corn and goat cheese tamales. She said her food was also bland and the corn masa in the tamales was not up to par. They put a lot into the atmosphere. Unfortunately the night-clubesque nature of it all isn't our cup of tequila. They really need a new chef that can bring out the authenticity of the flavors represented in the selections on their menu. There are too many other great Mexican food options in SD. We won't be back.
It was great ! We ordered the lobster and steak .
This restaurant was amazing. Detailed from the ambiance to the menu. Food was spectacular and service was even better!!!
Really enjoyed my Birthday dinner at this place
Service was great. Food was average. Noise and music was so loud it was hard to talk. We will never come back.
I can’t express how amazing it is to be able to dine indoors again! I made a reservation to Red O for my husbands birthday and we had such a good time. We liked that they took their time in between ordering apps and entrees which gave us time to enjoy the apps and talk to each other and savor the moment. The food was great quality, clean and prepared well. Our waitress was professional and sweet. So awesome to get that little bit of normalcy back!
Service was just okay. The person waiting on our table had a weird thing where they wanted to bring appetizer before taking our entre order. We had been fasting all day because of Ramadan and wanted to order our food as quick as possible. The ambiance was nice, but overall I felt that you’re paying for the atmosphere, the food itself was just okay. Also didn’t appreciate sitting on the patio on a cold night, heaters were on, but we were right by the glass and you could feel the outside air and even a few droplets of rain.
RED O was mediocre at best. The chips came out stale (how is that possible?), the fajitas were bland (we had the chicken and steak combo and both were flavorless), and the drinks were meh (not the worst margarita I've had but definitely in the bottom, and the Old Fashioned came out without any garnishes, which I've never seen before). The service was ok but not great. Since it was a birthday dinner, the overall experience was very disappointing. We will definitely not be going back.
Good for a big party celebration or drinks, the actual food is just okay.
Other than the fact that the music was too loud for easy conversation, the experience was excellent!
Food is always yummy & on point. My fave is the ahi tartare - crazy good. Great service. Beautiful patio.
The food and service at Red O La Jolla is outstanding. Love the decor! Recommending to all our friends and family!
Excellent food, ambiance and service....
Excellent food and service !!
Normally love our experience at red os. Normally love the food.
We went for appetizer and dessert for a very quick evening. The waiter seemed frustrated we didn’t order more.
The carnitas empanadas are my fave but they were Luke warm.
The butter cake is a rave. But it was burnt and over cooked on top.
If I remembered my host name I would mention her but she did an amazing job catering the table. She answered all questions as a host should and ensured refills were made prior to any request. Great experience and thank you for the Tres Leche cake as a birthday dessert! Very impressed and pleased with the service.
Service was bad. Luckily, the manager or other server started helping us which made the visit better. One of our orders did not come out so when we told our new server, he took it off and gave us a complimentary dessert.
The best Mexican food by far.
Wonderful menu and food selection too. Server was very attentive and super nice. Highly recommend
Stunning outdoor patio dining. Great shareable plates as well as excellent service and notable wines to enhance our experience. This place is a must visit.
Enjoying a girl’s night catching up and also celebrating a new baby on the way
Best goat cheese tamale, only rivaled
By their perfect salsa.
We have a great Birthday Dinner.
Bob and Olivia at the bar were fantastic servers during our date lunch. The hostess was slow and not very good. The food was delicious. Love the decor.
Flavorful dishes on what is a unique take on what is traditional.
Delicious oysters, fondido, and drinks. The waiter gave us our time and space. I asked for a quiet corner since it was our anniversary and they totally accommodated. We had lamb, salmon and the chili relleno. Everything was so good!
Fantastic authentic with a twist Mexican cuisine. Great tequila selection. Super friendly server and wait staff.
We have always had a good meal and experience at red o. This time it seemed the music was louder than before. I don't mind music in the background, but when you have to talk loud to be heard it is a bit too much. Could just have been getting back to having quests indoors. Overall good meal and great service
Server was awesome!
Too loud to talk amongst ourselves.
Food was bland and came out so fast that it couldn't have been made to order.
Patio seating was very cold.
