    It was very busy but we were seated immediately. Everything was good: service, cocktails, food quality and portions.

    Our reservation was at 6:30pm we arrived in time set down had a drink order dinner. We set for a hour and 15 min with no dinner. It was really upsetting. But your amazing manager Tisa maybe I’m speeding her name wrong. She was the best and made everything perfect! I will be returning because of her. Thanks

    I have been eating at Red O since they first opened on Melrose Ave in Los Angeles. The menu is unique and delicious. The service has always been excellent The Ambient atmosphere stunning. I love the place, was a great Father's day treat for me from my wife.

    Unfortunately, we had a bad experience maybe due to Father’s Day but the food was not great but ok. The service was not what is expected for a restaurant of this caliber. I doubt that I will be returning to this restaurant.

    Service was very slow, although understandable, as it was extremely busy. The waiter was nice and accomadeting but the food was very disappointing, especially for the price! The guacamole was average, nothing special, my shrimp enchiladas took forever to come out even longer than my husband's med well rib eye, and when it finally came, it was not edible! $37 for a soggy tortilla w literally nothing but a few pieces of shrimp inside (not even cheese!) and some kind over watered-down sauce poured over the top. I showed the waiter and asked what he thought of it, and he immediately took it back and removed it from the bill... I'm still baffled as to why that even took so long to come out if that's all it was??? Needless to say, it was a very disappointing experience. I ended up just having chips and mediacore guacamole and a few bites of my husband's steak.

    We have been there before and the food was good. This time was substandard. Too many issues to critique.

    Father’s Day lunch was amazing. Ordered a tablita of tomahawk and lobster and of course it never disappoints. Our server Brandon was great along with all the front desk, staff and everyone else. The pitcher of Cucumber refresher margarita was on point!!

    Our first time here. We made reservations for Father's Day brunch. We were seated promptly and served water, chips and salsa. We ordered guacamole, small bowl $16, it was tasty. My husband ordered the "bottomless bloody Mary" and he did not care for it as the glass was warm even though there was some ice in the glass. Our food order was a hit and miss. I ordered chilaquiles and the dish was cold. The waitperson brought me a fresh one and it was hot and very tasty. My son ordered French toast which was tepid, and he did not want to send it back as we had waited quite a while for our food. The fruit on the French toast plate was good. My husband ordered the steak and eggs, and he thought the steak was tender, cooked nicely but a bit under seasoned. We felt bad that this was our first experience with this restaurant.
