RED O features Cuisine from award-winning Chef-Restaurateur Rick Bayless, the chef responsible for changing the image of Mexican food in America. The menu offers both authentic Mexican and Prime Steak & Seafood dishes, signature items such as the infamous Pollo en Mole Poblano & Mexican Raw Bar & Ceviches. Whether it’s for a formal sit-down dinner with a large group or catching up with friends over a few small bites and cocktails, every guest will find a cozy area to suit the occasion.

"We had a 5:30 PM reservation on Valentine's Day, thinking we'd avoid the dinner rush, but NO. It was PACKED. Nevertheless, we only waited about 10 minutes to be seated, and while we waited for our server we were given complimentary flutes of sparkling rose'! The food we ordered was DELICIOUS and service was fairly quick, considering how slammed the kitchen must have been. It was a wonderful dining experience and we will be back for sure!"

Our founders, Brian Bennett and Paul Fleming, had a vision for a restaurant they wished was in their neighborhood — a place that serves you dishes made from scratch with the highest quality ingredients prepared simply and well, all offered at accessible prices. Embracing this concept and carrying these values into the restaurant kitchen, Paul Martin's American Grill was born.<br /><br />Today our motto remains "Seasonal & Delicious." On our menu you will find the best seafood from sustainable fisheries, free-range and natural meats and poultry, artisan cheeses and cured meats. Alongside our food, we serve artisanal cocktails made with house-infused spirits, craft beers and a deep selection of over 100 wines, most of which are offered by the glass.<br /><br />We encourage you to peruse our rich and varied menus, which are designed to foster sampling and sharing. Good times and thoughtful food are a way of life at Paul Martin’s.

Taste on Melrose is Melrose Avenue friendliest neighbor, homey yet sophisticated. With its relaxed setting, updated American comfort cuisine and eminently moderate prices, Taste on Melrose offers everything that people are looking for in a neighborhood restaurant. Located in the mids of the swanky stretch of trend setting Melrose Avenue with the likes of Marc Jacobs and Diane Von Furstenburg. Taste on Melrose is a neighborhood favorite for stylish Angelinos with a preference for elegant surroundings and a comforting, laid-back dining experience. FULL BAR.<br /><br />

"Dining experience was wonderful from a food perspective, but the overall ambience and noise level detracted from any enjoyment. Manager said this was typical of a Sunday brunch, so if it's typical, why not do something ABOUT IT so that your diners won't COMPLAIN ABOUT IT?!!!?!"

The Ayres family has been serving up fantastic Steaks, Chops, Ahi Sandwiches, Signature Salads, and House-made Desserts for decades. Each location presents a lively atmosphere where friends and neighbors can be seen table-hopping while business associates hammer out important deals. <br><br>There is fireside dining in the main dining room as well as the tree-shaded patio facing the magnificent San Juan Capistrano Mission.

"Were seated at a table next to a wall that had a "pillar" of stones going up to the ceiling. It was VERY dark, and there was kind of an odor nearby -- not sure if it was busboy B.O. or the furniture! Made the dining experience not so great, but we had no other options. Better for outdoor dining."
