“I have never been wowed by Red Onion”
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.

“Great Latin American food with awesome pineapple salsa”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

When they seat you, they bring a basket of chips with red salsa and pineapple salsa which is to die for! This is a Latin American restaurant, and they have a huge selection of things to order, which is always really tasty. The workers at this location are always very friendly.
