Red O - Los Angeles Ratings and Reviews
If you want to spend an unreasonable amount of money on mediocre Mexican food you can go to Red O, or you can just spend a reasonable amount of money at El Toritos. There was a time Red O was the place to go, no more. Food was uninspired, services was terrible, even the once cool heated floor no longer works. Chips and salsa were good. Ceasar salad was adequate, tamales were bland, ocean trout was a bit overdone on a bed of bland rice with some fajita style veggies tossed on as an afterthought. Tres Leches cake for desert was nicely laid out, not much after that. Skip it.
Not your typical, casual Mexican restaurant, Red O was lovely with a more formal atmosphere, while still being fun and festive. Our waiter, Rob, was friendly and attentive and set a nice tone for our dinner date. The food was excellent. The complimentary chips and salsa were a step above in taste and quality. My husband and I tried different types of margaritas and we both were very happy with our cocktails. I had the best skinny margarita I've ever had. We shared an order of guacamole, which was fresh and perfectly seasoned. We both savored our entrees, especially the enchiladas suizas. Even the background music was enjoyable - fun without being intrusive. Red O was definitely worth driving through traffic for a night out and we will be back.
I was very much looking forward to eating at this restaurant because I admire Rick Bayless but unfortunately I don’t think I’d go back. Although the food was good, it took over an hour for us to receive our dinners and there was only one other couple in the restaurant. The restaurant was also very cold and drafty and I had to wear my coat and have a gas heater moved over to the table. It was slo a little odd that in a Mexican restaurant they were playing 80’s music.
Red O remains as great as it was when it opened. The staff is attentive (refills magically appeared without needing to flag someone down) and the food is great. The menu changes from time to time so there is always something new to try. There is something on the menu for everyone - their seafood is top notch, they have mexican classics, a number of salads, many different steak cuts, and a whole lot of other choices. Would definitely recommend!
I hadn't been to Red O in awhile and I think the food was better than ever. A few years ago, they'd laugh at you when you asked for an advance reservation - actually happened a couple of times - now, they call to thank you for dining. That was a nice touch but even that paled next to the food which I found amazing. Rediscover this place.
This Red O ambiance very different than one in Newport Beach, much cozier, but not quite the grand ambience of Newport. The server was a bit short with us at first, but once we talked to him he opened up. Food was not the best ever, but it was very good, and only $220 for 4 drinks, 3 entrees, 2 sides and 2 desserts is dirt cheap for the Beverly Hills. Definetly will go back.
Red O offered a 50% discount on food items to military personnel and veterans, so we took advantage of that special. Food was first rate, as always, and service was impeccable. After the bill was settled, Manager Danny came over to the table to thank me for serving and shake my hand.
A very enjoyable evening with great service, tasty margaritas, fantastic filet topped by a roasted tomato salsa and a side if amazing goat cheese tomales, various tacos and enchiladas which were each uniquely delicious, all topped off by Churros. We will be back on a future visit to LA>
Picked Red O to meet my Tinder date since it was nearby. The host was very kind and accommodating when she asked to change tables for no real reason other than to be a little high maintenance. While she was a pain, our server Nick was able to provide excellent service throughout the evening. The tacos were amazing and the shrimp were huge and well prepared. After our dinner I deleted her number but I'll definitely be back to Red O again!
This was a restaurant that exceeded my expectations. Based on some reviews I did not expect such a great dining experience. Food wonderful. Fresh, clean and exceptional flavors. The butternut squash soup was super flavorful and the almonds, raisins and heat level were perfection. Followed by the lamb with mole, asparagus with mushrooms superior. Beautiful caramelization on the meat and served at the perfect, to order, temperature. Go, have fun, definitely a great place to dine.
Red O was an "OK" experience. The food was fine but generally needed a little more flavor, which is unusual for upscale Mexican, although the short-rib enchilada was quite good. The other dishes we tried generally did not seem worth the price points they were commanding, although service was quite quick.
I have followed Rick Bayless for years on PBS. I was just curious to see if his food captured the essence of Oaxacan cuisine. Sadly, it did not. The small plates menu was just okay. I ordered goat cheese tamales, duck taquitos and chicken taco with a flight tasting of mezcal. BORING ! The upside was that the happy hour prices were reasonable. having said that, the wait staff was wonderful - it was early and there was NO ONE else outside on the patio - but the crew was friendly enough - especially when I mentioned I had just seen Hamilton. There are better Mexican restaurants in Los Angeles. Skip Red O.
