Red Tracton's Ratings and Reviews
As usual, Red's provided a great experience. It is an honest and unpretentious restaurant with an old-school vibe and menu. Generous cocktails, excellent wine list, and great food. The service is sincere and excellent. A very honest restaurant with no gimmicks other than great food and service. I am ashamed that I cannot remember my server's name, but she was excellent.
This place is a classic. Just love it. Simultaneously, feels like a step back in time and still relevant. The Maitre'd and Manager (?) is a complete professional and gentleman. The ambiance is great--established racetrack and locals crowd. Food is good. Drinks--as they should be. Our service this night was pleasant and professional, but a little disjointed. But, appreciate what they have created and sustained over time.
Took my BF here for his birthday - He wanted a classic steakhouse vibe and that'w what we got! Great neighborhood spot. Requested the corner booth in the bar area - energetic but not too loud. Great server (Erika?) and they didn't rush us. Very enjoyable meal with big portions and good cocktails.
This has been our favorite celebration restaurant for the last 32 years. My husband took me here on our first date and every big moment since. Unfortunately, the management and servers don't care. It was our 25th wedding anniversary and I requested a simple yet classic meal from them. A week in advance, when I asked if I could order it the server said it was requested and in the kitchen but the chef stated it was too much trouble and that I could come back on Friday when they serve that special. Needless to say, not happy. I've requested special meals at other less notable places and they were always happy to accommodate. Why Tracton's couldn't fill this simple request seems ridiculous. It was a slow night, the drinks were good but the service slow. We spent a fortune to eat there and celebrate our anniversary (did I say 25 years!) yet it seems it doesn't matter there and I'm sorry to say -- that put a damper on our anniversary.
If only the they appreciated our patronage as much as we once loved celebrating there. I'm hard pressed to say I'll go back. I will miss the Lobster Clubs. :(
We never ate there. We got there on time and were told that valet parking was a REQUIREMENT. The parking lot and the restaurant were empty. I was not going to pay for parking and was told to park off property or on the street.
I have been to this restaurant before. The food is ok, but overpriced and overrated. Left and drove less than a mile to the Fish Market where we had a delightful meal.
Don’t waste your time and money here.
Let me start by saying the food was good and up to the usual Red Tracton standards. I had a big problem though with the fact that because the reservation was for an evening after Breeder's Cup races at Del Mar, normal free valet parking became $20 with no advance notice. A separate menu was also printed that increased the price of all entrees by $10. I just don't think that is an ethical business practice, particularly with no advance notice.
We've been customers for 10+ years and this place has never deteriorated or lessened in any way! The food is just plain incredible. If there was any complaint about this place, it was that it serves way too much food! The tast of the food is amazing; the service is impeccable; and the "price is right"! Any person who does not go here is simply cheating oneself out of a true pleasure of life. We are definitely Red's BFFs (Best Fans Forever)!
The food was excellent. The service was excellent. A little disappointed that for a foursome where we celebrating two birthdays, a desert was not comped! Normally too full to eat desert but our guests wanted something. Will of course go back because in the scheme of things, it is a small thing but it would have been huge PR!
Great old style environmnet but still lots of energy that comes from the bar - all wait staff are first class and obviously well experienced professionals - enjoyed great variety the menu offered with more than a few unique items not commonly seen - and this place draws a lot of interesting people to muse and gossip about - entirely positive experience
A must stop on our trips to Del Mar. Old-style atmosphere with fabulous service, delicious food, and huge portions. Best lobster bisque (with sherry), bluecheese wedge, and mouthwatering prime rib. Always a memorable event. Adrian and Heidi are such attentive and nice severs.
Fish was dry but tasted good. Terrible experience due to a very loud, drunk, group sitting in the middle of the restaurant using vulgar language and not one of the staff or the manager asked them to quiet down. This place was recommended by friends for our special occasion but it wasn't very special. I have no desire to return.
My birthday celebration there was a flop because of the very crude, intoxicated, extremely loud and obnoxious--did I say loud (yelling at times) --conversation of the party of six at a table nearby, which went on for nearly an hour and a half while we were there on Saturday night. Otherwise, our food and service were good. It's too bad a few were allowed by the restaurant staff to destroy the dining experience of the rest of us.
Zandra was our server and was superb! Great personality and added to our overall great experience for my step mothers birthday and dad from out of town. We appreciated being sat in the main dining room as requested but our table had a lot of kitchen noise as expected since it was directly adjacent to the kitchen. But overall we are local fans of Tracton's and will keep coming for our favorite dishes!
Very, very tired restaurant. We weren't expecting gourmet food but this menu was straight from the 70s. Fatty cuts of meat, overpriced Jumbo shrimp, over cooked vegetables. Green goddess dressing? I was hosting a large group and servers did get our orders right but it took hours. Probably will only return if I'm looking to karaoke in the party bar. One last important note... the menu on Open Table reflects pricing that is about 25-30% less than what the menu we ordered off. Very sketchy!
