Jose A. Is one of the best servers I’ve encountered eating out. He is incredibly knowledgeable, doesn’t over sell, and is so in tuned with enhancing your experience. He’s honestly someone I trust to drive my entire meal. Every single suggestion and recommendation was spot on, and he was incredibly attentive. If for nothing else, I would come back time and time again for him to be able to serve me again, in addition, ALL the food and drinks were exceptional
We had a great time. We sat in the outdoor room. Not the tent. It was sooo pretty and the waiter was great. Explained all the specials and went over the whole menu. Our food was delicious and presented fabulously. We will be back.
DEFINITELY CHANGED - they want you in and out in 90 minutes, the busboy took my food (thumb in m y food) as I was eating - we had to complain to the manager. We were seated in a spot where we were simultaneously hearing THREE different types of music as they have a DJ in valet now and a separate tent outside - out waiter was nice but the food quality, ambiance and frankly even the service were nothing like how Red-O used to be - we had to yell to speak and couldn't hear anything - unfortunate that Red-O has changed THIS MUCH as this was one of the better spots in NP.
First time here, place was spectacular, clean, fresh ingredients, great food selections and proportions. Friendly staff, welcoming especially our server ALEX W. , he is a gem very attentive and great attitude. Hope he gets full recognition from management. He excels in customer service!
The best Mexican food
I celebrated my friends birthday and was blown away at the level of good quality and service. I will definitely be back.
Celebrating a friends birthday
The dinner was delicious.
We went for our anniversary and enjoyed the food very much in addition to great service.
I was disappointed that we did not receive a "special" dessert
I did mention to the hostess this was a special occasion and also made notice of it in the reservation.
Oh well I guess Red O does NOT pay attention to occasions
Food was excellent. Margaritas were great. Service was on point and the ambience was lively and perfect. Very nice experience.
Patio seating is perfect! Some of the best chips & salsa. Love the short rib enchiladas. One of our favorite restaurants when visiting the area. Our most recent server Samuel was great. Will be back.
It was fun food delicious as always!
This was our first time at Red O and I was pleasantly surprised by the energetic, very pretty and classy ambience. Samuel was our waiter and his service was impeccable. We will definitely be going back soon!
Great semi-outdoor seating area with nice ambience and decoration.
Red O has the highest level of service and top notch food. We keep coming back and continue to enjoy everything Red O has to offer. This time we brought another couple with us to share the love. I mixed it up this time and deviated from my favorite Alacaran and got the Sun Burn! Similar spicy margarita with the addition of watermelon! Amazing. And for dinner my new go to is the incredible pork chop within cotija mashed potato over a chipotle crema! Wow!!!! Looking for excuse to head back! I love you Red O!!!!
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.
Tasty food, great service!! Loved it!! Highly recommend !!
Food was delicious but the prices were high. The service was excellent but it is difficult to understand the server with the mask.
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.
We usually have lunch here when we visit Newport Beach. The outdoor patio was perfect and food delish! Great chips & salsa!
Our server was awesome!
We went to celebrate a friend’s birthday food was delicious drinks even better. A little on the pricey side but worth it
Fun, upscale mexican food, love the courtyard area
Had a good time, was disappointed that happy hour ended @6 and on the website says @7.
Great experience! I would especially like to give kudos to our server, who was absolutely perfect. We overstayed our welcome, but only because everything was so great!
The food was great, the service led a lot to be desired. It took me 30min to get a new fork.
Excellent service and food
It’s a fun and atmospheric experience. Definitely a fun time. Our waiter Samuel was a pleasure and will ask to be served by him on our next visit.
Fantastic food and ambience! Highly recommend Red O.
