    Our server Ana was perfect. My wife selected the filet mignon and she loved it. I adore chicken pot pies and got the one they offered. Though I am on a low carb diet, I wish they had lined the bottom of the terrine with pastry as well. It was still excellent. We are already talking about going back to this place which has been there for 75 years!

    We love randy. The very best server in all of San Diego I had the Turkey dinner WONDERFUL. we also had the crab Louie salad. More crab than one can eat and NO blood shed from having to deal with the shell. We recommend this place only if you want the very best quality and service around. We are here before 1988 in the San Fernando valley then they relocated to here. What a break !! Obviously one of our favs

    This is a great place with supper club vibes. We enjoy the old school atmosphere and menu. They know how to make a good drink and a steak. It’s especially good on a cold or rainy night, compared to so many area restaurants that assume the weather will always be warm and still and are pretty unpleasant when it’s not.

    It’s been a decade or almost two since going and it is the same in some ways and far far worse in others. The food was all over the place from really good to horrid. We even tried to get a turn back on the open faced Lobster Sando which was a Kitchen Nightmares level mess and got denied by the manager who said we should have complained earlier and he ate too much. No comp not even a table visit. Service wise if it was just on that a 1. However fairness our server was nice enough and tried. At the end the food was all over the place, the place super dated and the service was hit or miss. We dropped well over $600 for 5 and won’t go back again. Nice memory from back in the day but it is 100% not worth it as it stands today. Morton’s or something else if you want this Red Tractons is over as far as I am concerned. Sorry but you guys really really blew it. Whoever is the manager needs to clue in as people who drop the kind of money they charge aren’t scamming you on a sandwich.

    I was REALLY disappointed with my recent visit. I have dined here for than 20 years for almost every special occasion and have gotten their “famous” prime rib EVERY time. Unfortunately, for the very first time, our whole meal was terrible. I’m not sure if it was a combination of maybe a new chef ? And the quality of the prime rib was not edible. My guest and I both ordered the 14 ounce prime rib at my constant raving of how good it was. The cap of the prime rib was fine but the heart of the piece of meat was very tendony and we were not able to chew through it and had to keep spitting out the mouthful after chewing on it for a very long time. It seems that they are no longer purchasing Prime or Choice grade of beef…perhaps because of the pandemic and they need to save money? But since I was paying more than $135 for two prime rib dinners, it was abominable. Additionally, we both chose the rice pilaf which was very underdone as much of it was actually crunchy, sadly. I am not one to complain about my food usually but when our server came to us at the “end” of our meal, I told to “Please inform the chef that the heart of he prime rib was not chewable and that the rice pilaf was way under done and inedible. Our server was very apologetic and said that I should have told her before, but firstly, she never came to check on us after we were served which I don’t mind because I don’t like to be constantly be interrupted during my meal and secondly, I generally never complain about my meal but rather want to inform the chef of issues if need be. Our server was very sweet and actually had the chef slice me a thin piece of prime rib to take home which was very nice and tried to make up for the i chewable meat. However, it was probably taken off the same piece of meat because I tried to eat it tonight for dinner but alas I had to toss it out because the heart of it was still tendony and not edible. I’m really disappointed with the experience which was my anniversa

    The food was cold, my steak looked like it had been recycled, it was charred on the outside and raw on the inside, I couldn’t eat it. The server had to be hunted down multiple times …finally, she took our payment and never brought our change back. When we finally found her and asked for the change she said she would bring it but never did. I guess she thought her poor service deserved a 30% tip…smh

    We like Red Tracton’s very much. It can be pricey, so we normally reserve it for special occasions. December 31st is my birthday, so we opted to have my birthday/New Year’s Eve dinner there again this year. Our reservation was for 7:00pm. We were quite disappointed to find that they were ‘out of’ many of their favorite menu basics. It was only 7:00PM, and they were already ‘out of’ many menu items? I had been looking forward to my favorite ribs for two weeks for my birthday, yet when we got there, I had to make due with something I really didn’t want… on my birthday. Not really a hardship obviously, but don’t you think an experienced restaurant would know how to prepare for an evening based on reservations? Yes, I thought so too. A disappointing Birthday/New year’s Eve dinner.

    Red's is always consistently good. The portions are so large, I would rather them have smaller portions and charge a bit less, but they are know for their generous portions I guess. Overall, it is always delicious and a fun place to go.

    This is an outstanding family heritage steakhouse (for the lack of a better term). From the time you walk in the door, you know the customer is going to be number one for service, food, and courtesy. I would not hesitate to return to this restaurant whenever I was looking for a steak. But don't go just for the steak...it's got a great menu!

    Sigh. Have no idea what the high ratings are about. This is a place stuck in the 1950s. Good for the very traditional menu that it features, but no real creativity. Just meat and fish done in standard ways. And WAAAY overpriced. 4 people and a $300 meal without alcohol. You want to go back to the 1950s and have meat and fish and willing to pay over the top prices. It’s for you then.

    We arrived at 7 and by 8:30 we still had not been served. My medium rare steak arrived cold and medium. The pasta was horrific, so cold & gluey it had to be sent back. The steak we ordered to replace it was great. The problem was by then the restaurant was closed and we were the only people there. Our server Chris was lovely and obviously under supported. We took our dinner to go. I’d go back for appetizers and music but that’s it.

    Our holiday Thanksgiving dinner was $99 which I think is expensive and especially for what you got- salad- turkey dinner- pie. It was my second time dining here because of staying at attached hotel. We needed to win at DelMar racetrack to enjoy Red's.

    Overall an adequate dining experience. We went with a friend the thanksgiving meal. Whereas there was plenty of food, I didn’t feel the total experience was worth the $99 per person price tag. With additional cocktail and beer plus tax and tip, it came to $150 per person!!! Hey, I didn’t have to cook!!!!

    Wow! My turkey dinner was $99! My fault for not looking/checking the menu since it was Thanksgiving and Thursday is Tracton's turkey special night weekly. My husband's small prime rib and sides were delicious according to him...at $50 for the prime rib. Although my fault, $99 for turkey dinner is outrageous. The pumpkin pie that came with it was under baked with crust almost unbaked and mushy. Been to Tracton's many times but this time was not special at all!!
