And for a high price. Waited about an hour for food due to a slip up in the kitchen and nobody even finished their plate due to the quality and taste. Good chips and salsa though ;)

Several hostesses were inappropriately attired (bikini top, micro-mini skirts, lace stockings, etc.). The music was excessively loud. On the plus side, our server was excellent. The food was very good, but sadly it feels like menu has lost some of its original authenticity in favor of a more Americanized flair. In all, this dining experience was a disappointment.

Our server was really nice and attentive which was nice. Happy hour food was a mixed bag - duck taquitos were just OK but the corn and goat cheese empanada was tasty and so was the ceviche. My sangria was pretty nice too. Noise was not a problem on the patio but inside it might be different story - bar was packed!

Me and my friend love to wine and dine, so we know what kind of service we should expect. The ordered food and everything came out at once. And our server only checked up on us at the end of our meal and said he was busy with a large party. Skinny margaritas were suppose to be made with freshly squeezed lemons but it tasted like a store bought bottle of lemon juice. Overall… not impressed and it was an early dinner so it wasn’t busy.

Three people stood behind desk to check us in? We were escorted to a small table that wasn’t acceptable-very tiny and next to high traffic area-we requested a booth or better table and told booths were already reserved (even though several were empty when we left) but after returning to the front check in area given a nicer table on the patio. We were between 2 large parties-long tables with at least 20 people. The food was very good and lots of servers . We thought the prices were high for both food and cocktails but it was a special occasion. I’m not sure we’ll return again-turned off by check in person’s attitude and the price-we love Mexican food but think there are other restaurants with good food and better prices.

I requested a special sweet treat at the conclusion of dinner, and they gave us a tres leches, fruit and sparkler surprise dessert. Our waiter, Carlos was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. He helped us choose our appetizer and entrees, since it was our first time at Red O. It was a wonderful experience. We enjoyed it very much and plan to return.

Food was decent but I’ve had better enchiladas. This was only my first time and I would go again. Unfortunately we were seated next to the exit where the serving staff would frequent to go to the patio so it felt a little congested. Service was just ok. Atmosphere was loud but it may have been an event of some sort.

Imagine my surprise upon leaning that now you need to pay for a table at the bar/happy hour area. We arrived, all tables were empty except for 1, and they told us we couldn’t sit there because now you’re supposed to pay extra to reserve the tables. Then, they moved us to the outdoor upfront area which had little to no ambiance/music. The waiter brought us the wrong wine. All around, a very disappointing experience.

The atmosphere was wonderful and lively. It was a bit on the loud side, but not so much that I wouldn't go again. The service was fantastic from the moment we entered the restaurant until the moment we left. I had the Porkchop and my wife had the enchilada trio, both of which were outstanding! We're a bit of refried bean freaks and aren't afraid to say a restaurants beans are not up to snuff and Red O's were fantastic. All in all, I will definitely go back to Red O.

Kevin F our waiter was amazing he is very knowledgeable on the menu and drinks. His suggestions paired very nicely with our meal. He was very friendly and made us feel right at home. Kevin brought the tequila cart over and poured us tequila shots to celebrate my boyfriend birthday! My boyfriend got the chipotle sauce steak and I got the lobster enchiladas. The steak was perfect and the lobster enchiladas were so good ! The restaurant is beautiful and the food was delicious but Kevin really made our experience even better.
