    Great place for a birthday brunch with family & friends. The staff was great with taking our orders and drinks. Bringing out the cake with candles was a nice touch.

    Very good food portions, the service was amazing, and VERYYYYY TASTY! I’m a Latina and usually Mexican restaurants don’t serve tasty food, this place is another level of perfection when it comes to Mexican gastronomy! I totally recommend it 🙌🏻

    Always a good meal with beautiful surroundings however we did wait to be asked about our drink order for a very long time we got seated quickly, was given water and chips. The waiter never returned. In fact, a different waiter came back and was good

    I was searching for a new date spot and came across Red O. After reading a few reviews my wife and I decided to give it a try and I am so glad we did! The atmosphere was great, the service was friendly and our waiter (wish I could remember his name) was AMAZING! The food was absolutely INCREDIBLE. I do need to mention we got the most expensive thing on the menu the Tablita. It was so good that we will be back for it again and again and again. Loved everything about this place although I would say it is a bit on the pricey side.
