    Make it sweet at Red O with the La Rosita cocktail — shaken with Blue Ice Organic Vodka, fresh lemon, hibiscus syrup and apple essence and served up in a sugar-rimmed glass. Read more

    When they first opened they were very arrogant and offensive as they were HOT. Now longer hot! Now can walk in any day anytime almost without reservations.

    Usually I get annoyed because this place is crazily overpriced. However, they have a Sunday happy hour from 5-7 that is an epic way to greet the evening.

    I love Rick Bayless, but this place blows. The cocktails and atmosohere are nice, but the food is mediocre. I actually prefer the food at Frontera Fresco, his quick service restaurant, over this.

    Bit of Hollywood smoke and mirrors. Take away the gorgeous space and attentive waitstaff and you're left with average food. Which would be totally fine for average prices - not the case here.

    Rick Bayless's West Hollywood hot-spot where the prices are justified by the provenance of the ingredients (i.e. suckling pig cochinita pibil). Read more

    If you sit in the lounge don't wear skinny jeans...it's like sitting at a pre school class table.....You are basically on the floor!But it's a fun scene and the food rocks!
