We ate on the patio because we had our four legged family with us. It was nice to be able to book a reservation with outdoor seating instead of the first come , first served some restaurants offer when choosing outdoor seating.

Our server was nice and our order was correct; I just hate when I have to keep asking for our beverage(s) to be refilled (water and ice T).

The food was flavorful and everyone enjoined their meal. I would recommend and will return.

The food, ambience and overall experience was wonderful. Our server was pleasant and provided excellent service. The food was on point and the buzz in the restaurant was amazing. I don’t usually like to point out the negatives in any dining experience; however, the hostess that I encountered that evening is worth mentioning to help improve the service quality and customer experience at Red O. Unfortunately, the hostess was unfriendly and unwilling to be helpful. We checked in a little early and even though there were available tables, she kept telling us to check back in at our reservation time. I told her that I would be at the bar and she again, repeated that I would have to check back in with her and that she would not come over to get us when the table was ready. Usually, the hostesses are willing to come get you when the table is ready, but this night, with this particular hostess, she was unwilling to do much of anything. Hopefully, a little training in customer service will help her in the way she interacts with patrons of the restaurant. Other than that, loved the place!

Nice looking restaurant in a very nice area. The food is was good but I guess I was expecting more as it is a Rick Bayless restaurant. Service was good and so were the margaritas.

Always very good - excellent food, creatively prepared, Red-O provides friendly service, both on the patio and inside. The dog-friendly back patio adds another reason to come back often. The only knock is that they should do music as well as the food.

Visiting LA for our daughter's 16th Birthday and made reservations in the morning and we had a lovely table at the front window overlooking the beach at sunset. The food was excellent! My husband loved it because the restaurant is a spin off from the old Red Onion Restaurants that he used to visit when he lived in West Chester as a young boy. The surprise handmade churros were such a fun treat as a lite dessert!
