What an enjoyable experience. My wife and I decided we would try Red O for an early dinner and what a pleasant dining experience. We were greeted by the hostess who was very nice and accommodating relative to our table choice. Jose came with chips and water and was also very pleasant and professional and checked on us throughout out dining experience. Rico our waiter was professional, knowledgeable and very friendly and certainly knew his Tequila and we chatted briefly before I order a few tasty sipping shots.
Our dinners were fantastic as my wife had halibut tacos and I had the filet mignon with plantains and beans. We also had a side of shrimp and a few margaritas. Kudos to the chefs and thanks to Rico and Jose for making our dining experience a memorable one. Once we finished it was time for a little shopping at the Spectrum and a nice ride down the coast. We highly recommend the Red O restaurant as their menu choices, service and ambiance are exquisite.
Thanks again

Chicken was way overcooked and the outside seating is not worth the price I paid for the experience. This was a second time and maybe our last.

Red O is good but the food is overpriced compared to its taste. There was a DJ in the restaurant which was loud and upbeat - cool if that's the vibe you want but not the best for a family.

If you're looking for a sugar baby/daddy this is the spot! Would go again with my friends for happy hour though. Heard the prices are actually reasonable during HH.

We were seated outside in the area created from the former parking circle. The heater closest to us warmed half of our group, but the other half of the table was cold because of the breezes from the parking lot underneath the plastic.
Our server was friendly but told us twice "I will be right with you" before actually arriving at our table about 25 minutes after we were seated.
I ordered a salad with shrimp on top. I didn't care for it, and I probably should have ordered something else. The fajitas looked yummy.
I like the style on the inside of this restaurant, but sitting outside is a bummer.

The short rib crunchy tacos were GREAT! Our server was amazing (Rito E)! It was just two of and we were celebrating my friends birthday and it was great. I wasn't crazy about the guacamole but the chips and salsa was really really good. Will definitely go again.

Everything about RED O was amazing — the service, the food, the value, etc. The margarita pitcher was an awesome size for the price, and our waitress was very attentive to our needs. I would definitely come back again (mostly just to keep eating their amazing chips and salsa)!

I use to really like the food. Seafood chile rellenos was my favorite but they’ve changed the recipe. I’ve had several items and I don’t come for the food but for the ambiance. Good vibe. Drinks are better
