“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

We loved our evening at Red O. Food was great, waiter was charming, ambience was fun. Looking forward to going back. The only deterent to going back more often is the limited vegetarian items. Would love to see more creative vegetarian dishes.

“Rick Bayless stop in LA!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

It was nice to see the crowd at the Red O like we experience at Rick Bayless restaurants in Chicago. Menu just as great. I cannot pass up mole, my friends enjoyed tacos and names too long I cannot remember! Enjoy!

“Great drinks menu, and Dynamic Mexican Food Selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

We had a party of four and we were seated in comfortable love seat type wicker couches, in the outer room. The decor is cool and has an open airy feel. Table was a bit crowded once drinks were ordered and apps were place, but the ambience generally ws great. I ordered oysters and the vinegar sauce dn chipotle sauce were perfect. The menu had a lot to offer so it will be a fun place to return to to explore the menu. The mole dishes were awesome, with the short rib enchiladas being a crowd favorite in our group. Wines by the glass were good but somewhat pricey, bottle wine was reasonable considering la. The mixed drinks were great, nd if you like spicy I recommend the margarita with Serrano peppers in it and around the rim.

“Good food. Good for groups. Very L.A.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

A group of us, enjoyed a great meal at Red O. It is stylish and chic. Very L.A, in it's feel and young good looking clients. Though I thought it was very expensive, the food was excellent. I love it when you ask for spicy salsa at Mexican restaurants and they actually deliver some. We started with the guacamole and oysters. The ceviche trio was my favorite. We each ordered different dishes to taste. The carne asada, halibut, shrimp and my favorite, the cochinita pibil. The specialty drinks were good but not essential to your meal. Kudos on the service. It was attentive and perfectly paced. I would say this place is better if in a large group that is ready to eat!
