Amazing service and delicious food. You must try.
The hostesses were so nice and accommodating abs found us the perfect table for 5 people! The alcove table in the indoor patio looking out at DJ was perfect fir the 3 24 year olds and 2 moms! Great food too! Love the chips and salsa!! Great service and our waitress was superb! Attentive and friendly and we had a blast! We got there at our 6:30 dinner reservation time abs it was still sunny so we wanted to be in the sunny happy location but still close to DJ! Loved it all! We’ll be back soon😄
Food was delicious as usual, unfortunately we had barely started on our appetizers and the meal was served. Made what was an enjoyable evening less than perfect
it was a lovely experience, and our waitress, Brooke was the best!!
This was our first time and it was awesome. Great ambiance and a great Hap Hour
Service was good a little hard to get someone’s attention to cancel a order that took way too long . My $55.00 steak was well done when I asked for med-rare . Other then that was ok and the margaritas were Delicious. The shrimp ceviche was nice a little lacking of seasoning. Beautiful ambiance
Incredible food! Incredible service! Amazing ambiance. Amazing! Great parking. Good for all ages. Needs more of a dress code to fit with the ambiance. Always odd for me to spend $600 at dinner and see other patrons wearing flip flops, cut off shorts and tank tops. Dress up for this place, it has earned this respect.
Was not happy with the taste of food. We visited about a month ago and the taste was so delightful. Our second visit the food taste was just okay, it food and soup had no flavor, was disappointed!
Excellent food with superb service!!
It was the best food we had in a really long time!
Looking forward to coming to this place for a while, and was a little disappointed. Overall the restaurant and ambiance are nice. The service was great. They come around first with a tequila cart, which we did grab a taste. But make sure you look at the prices because they are very pricey. We ordered the shrimp ceviche which was good. We ordered the surf and turf which is a tomahawk steak and a 1 pound lobster tail. A little disappointed for the $189 you pay for it. Our lobster was mushy, like it was over cooked and It didn’t have that lobster taste. They did cut it up into pieces for us. The tomahawk steak was good but I expected a little bit bigger and a little bit more flavor. The drinks are good but a little pricey also. I don’t mind paying the money if it’s worth it, but in this case I would say it’s not that worth it. If we were to go back I would try something different.
The place was nice. Love the dim lighting and ambiance. I loved that they had a dj and good music. The food and drinks come in a nice timely manner. Our server was nice and patient. The two negatives was despite a reservation they still had a wait as they claimed they were running behind? And lastly, the occasion was a birthday for my gf and I but there was no candle or was even asked if we wanted dessert.
Overall great experience
The food is delicious and the drinks are great! Love the ambiance. Excellent customer service.
The lobster and shrimp enchiladas are amazing! Totally recommend this place.
Our waiter, Sam, was awesome. Food was great
The food was terrible. It is overpriced, given the quality.
I never go there again
The experience was nice… the tequila bar is overpriced
Taylor was great!! Glad to have her!
Anniversary lunch. Great service and fabulous tasting food. Great vegetarian options.
It was a great experience overall!
Amazing food, great ambiance, outstanding service! I love this place!
Ambiance was great. Staff very welcoming. But my 2 dinner companions got their meals but I didn’t get mine. The runner and our server couldn’t have cared less. I wait and waited and waited. Finally, I got our servers attention and he said the chef didn’t like the way my meal turned out and was making another one. 10-15 minutes later, my meal finally came and I ate alone. Our server promised a free dessert but it never arrived…but our bill did. We just left. We won’t be back!
Our waiter was one of the nicest waiters we have ever had. Made us feel special.
We loved our experience at Red O ! Our server was great and we loved learning about all the different kinds of tequila! Our server was personable and super nice. The food was great ! You had an option to have a pricey meal or a less pricey meal. I had the chicken tacos and they were delicious and filling. I also had a cool coconut water margarita which came in a coconut ! So cool :)! We celebrated my fiancé’s 30th birthday and they brought him a yummy slice of cake too! We had a side of guacamole, two entrees and two drinks for about 93 dollars but I felt it was very worth it 😊
Great food, but horrible experience from the waiter that assisted me. I was offered water, as soon as I sat down and was given options between sparkling, and still water?
All I said was that I wanted water, obviously as a guest, I was assuming I was not going to get charged for water, considering if you go to Javier’s or any other nice restaurant they do not.
I was also refilled my glass three times without being asked if I wanted a refill.
As soon as I got my bill, and saw the charge. I asked the waiter why I was charged $36?
He stated it was the water, and I told him I never agreed to paying for any water, as I thought it was included.
He removed one of the water bottles and had the nerve to tell me “I usually never do it, but I took one off”.
The nerve that waiter had to express that he removed only ONE bottle of water, rather than the THREE I was charged for?
You need to inform your customers there options and that they will be paying for certain things before offering anything before they sit down.
Everything food and ambience wise was excellent. Just felt a little unsure about all the staff not wearing masks
Fantastic! The server was very tentative and provided exceptional customer service.
Overrated. At the end of the day it's still beans, rice and tortillas. Two chicken tacos, a little (and I mean little) beans and rice - $20. Service was great, but I can hit a mom and pops place for twice the amount of food and half the price and still experience authenticity.
It might be worth it for Happy Hour - I would meet for that.
Amazing service. Deliciously food !
Consistent quality of food and service. We love the duck taquitos and huevos rancheros.
Was a great night. Whole fish was amazing
Salmon and the stuffed pepper my daughter and son had and service was good. Thats the good part.
Fish tacos were terrible, frozen fish sticks
Overpriced. Take the fish tacos off the menu please. You'll end up making someone sick otherwise.
Fun time and this lively restaurant!
I would have given RED O a better review, but I felt uncomfortable because the servers were not wearing masks when leaning over us, our food and when filling our water glasses. I feel it is too soon for restaurants to be so relaxed. The guy that brought us take out containers had his fingers all over the inside of them. It just seemed like the servers were not taking into account that we are in the process of emerging out of a Global Pandemic. The other restaurants I have gone to recently still require all of their staff to wear masks.
I’ve been to Red O several times and I really like it for business lunches. I went again with a colleague and we were seated right away and it is so nice inside with really nice atmosphere allowing us to have a great conversation. I ordered the chopped salad with chicken at the recommendation of our waiter, however when I got it, it was lukewarm lettuce, or actually warm so I wasn’t sure if it was the lukewarm chicken they put on top of it or what but it was not as appetizing as I was hoping. Our waiter was very nice but he was in a hurry, and actually was running from table to table, literally. I will go there again as more than the food, the quiet inside atmosphere and tables were perfect for conversation.
I've always had wonderful food and a great experience overall at Red O. I highly recommend it.
