Edger and Jonathan were very professional and attentive to our needs. We had a great time.
Brunch for my birthday with friends!! The food at Red O was amazing as always. The bottomless brunch drinks, yes please! This time I chose the white sangria which was light and fruity and wonderful. We also ordered the dessert tray which has the chocolate lava cake, the butter cake and tres leches - so good!
Very lovely and beautiful place
Service is outstanding 👍
Very clean and great food
Very good customer service and they took care of my mom completely on her birthday celebration
The only issue that we had was with the front desk, they didn’t say hello they were exceptionally rude when she walked us to our table she pretty much through the menu on the table that my mother-in-law we really hope that they work on that issue and the noise level was extremely high. The rest of the evening was outstanding the food and the service was excellent beautiful restaurant and we will go back
Had a reservation but seated us outside dinning room.
Ju! Was amazing served. Made the experience worthwhile.
Caesar was awesome host! food was great and the service!!
It was amazing.! Love coming here
The host stand was amazing even though who greeted us was a manager. They saved us the outside seating and waited until our full party was there. The bar staff was attentive and fast, our cocktail server Melissa was amazing, the woman who breaked her was attentive. Amazing ambiance and service. I’m a regular here and am never let down by the food, service, music and atmosphere. Love the added glowing sign in the bathroom!
Fun atmosphere, great food and excellent service! Chips and salsa are right on point and the margaritas are fantastic
Amazing service! Liked the environment! Great experience!
Delicious. Great service. Unique tastes.
Great food and service but music very loud that hard to have a conversation.
The restaurant has been allowing guests to get very drunk and loud. There is so much screaming, shouting and it is very unfair to the other patrons trying to enjoy their meals and it ruins our experience. This has been happening more and more and it’s very common at brunch and we tried coming in last night for a nice dinner and same thing, 20 minutes in they welcomed a large party of women who quickly became intoxicated. It’s sad to see such a nice place go down the gutter.
Super nice place, a 5 star. Food is fine, not the best Mexican food but ambiance and service was great.
Great food, the Short Rib Enchiladas were awesome. Empanadas were flavorful.
Excelent food, was a great experience
Food is just ok>. I was disappointed with the lobster benedict - served only lukewarm. Service was good. Ambience cheerful.
We had a great time! Drinks and food were excellent and great vibe!
The DJ was awesome last night. 🎉👏🏼
Red O is an experience!
Birthday brunch- awesome!
Had a lovely experience sitting outside. The food was very good (but pricey).
Very nice! The food was delicious and the service was amazing. Shout out to our server Edgar, he was great.
The ambiance is romantic for couples but has a very strong upbeat feel for those hanging out.. definitely feel like your in the “in” crowd. The food & drink was good however not worth the price. Thankfully my friend and I shared guacamole & short rib enchiladas and the waiter took upon himself to split it on two separate plates which was enough for a full plate. Very sweet of him! We also got the “Red O” which is like a sangria and the presentation was beautiful. The only issue is prices!! So one short rib enchilada plate, guacamole and two sangrias came to $98 with tip. I’ve paid higher for sure but wasn’t expecting that.. would have been a lot for one meal on my own.
RedO was so much fun! The vibe, decor, food and staff were all top notch. RedO has a couple vegan option (thank you!) and the drink menu is to "infinity"... and our server (J.C.- I will add no doubt he is a professional server!) was perfectly engaged and extremely knowledgeable with the entire menu and about tequila! We chose to dine at RedO for our 21st anniversary out of all the restaurants in OC... and we are so glad!!!
Great night out for my wife's birthday
Food was so good!!! A must try place
The tortilla soup and the squash soup are amazing!
My husband, son and myself came here for an early lunch. We ordered a pitcher of “Chillaxing” margaritas - very refreshing and delicious with cucumber. My son ordered the shrimp fajitas which comes sizzling hot to the table and looked amazing. A generous portion of vegetables and jumbo prawns with tortillas and a side of rice and beans. My husband and I each ordered the braised short rib enchiladas - again with the sides of rice and beans. The meat was very flavorful and came with a red sauce. My husband ate his, but I ate half and will gladly have the other half for dinner. Service was attentive and friendly !
Great place. Very large and busy, but no problem with service. A bit noisy, but that's the norm at such a large restaurant!
Food and drinks were wonderful.
Ask to be by the fireplace on a chilly night! It added to our enjoyment of the restaurant!
Food wasn’t very good and waiter was rude.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm truly sorry that your visit was disappointing and I'm upset that the server was rude to you. That is certainly not the standards that we hold here and it's unacceptable. I'd like to speak to you further regarding your experience and invite you back with a gift card to assist with your next visit. Please reach out to me at your earliest convenience at HillariH@redorestaurant
The service was timely and server was friendly and knew a lot about the menu items. I’d definitely recommend this place!
Birthday celebration. Service was impeccable as always. Starting From the host/hostess podium to the overall dining experience. We always have a great time and always feel very welcomed.
Incredible energy! Red O is our new favorite!
Our dishes were not to Red O expectation - 6/10. We didn't want to be rude so we just ate it. The short rib enchilada was a little dry and the enchilada sauce tasted like tomato soup. Carnitas supes were overcooked. Salmon risotto- just don't order it.
I have been there several times and this is my first time of disappointment.
Great Service and vibe. Food was good
