Fodor's Review

With a luxurious setting, fun tequila lounge, loveseat swings by the main bar, and a menu that blends classic Mexican dishes with innovative ingredients, Red O has won over the hearts and palates of everyone in town. Scoring a seat at Red O—a honest-to-goodness celebrity magnet—makes you privvy to some of the best people-watching in town. Pull up a white wicker chair and start your evening with a margarita made with serrano pepper-infused syrup, and ask for the yellowtail ceviche with homemade tortilla chips. Small-plate offerings allow for sampling: try the soft tacos made with braised short rib, or the slow-cooked Sonoma duck taquitos. The goat-cheese tamales are a tasty rendition of a Mexican classic, and the shrimp empanaditas seal the deal.
