“Lunch near a job site”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

I have only been to the Red Onion once but I remember that the food and service were great. Unfortunately, one is not located near where I live.

“Cafe Red Onion”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Gets great reviews have been there three times thinking I order the wrong thing. I just don't get it. The food is at best (compared to what is available near by) average. The service is average and the cost above average

“Latin american fusion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

This is not a tex-mexican restaurant but is a fusion of latin american cusine and in my opinion is one of the best restaurant in houston. Food is dilicious and I like the mango appetizer and I love really love the chimichurri strip steak!

“I have never been wowed by Red Onion”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

In a city full of great restaurants, great South American food and great Mexican food, I have never been really wowed by the food at Red Onion. I do take clients to lunch here sometimes. The decor and service are good. It is okay, but not great.

We have been omce before and loved the food - unique dishes, well prepared. Went in May 2012, and it was closed! Hoping this is temporary.... So call before you go.
