“Great meals, lots of food, service a little slow”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Had a business dinner with 7 people and loved the food but service was a little slow although server was extremely nice. Group really enjoyed the king crab ravioli and the back rib appetizers. The soup of the day - red clam chowder was okay. Steaks were great and best meal by far was a pork chop special they had. Lots of food and most of the group could not finish their meals.

“Terrific food - they have a piano bar some evenings.”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

This is kind of an old throwback of a steakhouse although they serve some terrific fish dishes etc.. Great bartenders and waitstaff.

“July 25, 2013 Accident”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Due to the following, I can not rate the restaurant. The experience happened prior to eating a meal.

On July 25, 2013, I suffered a ruptured quadricep tendon while negotiating a step down from a dining area at Red Tracton's restaurant. This injury resulted in surgical repair and the loss of mobility for eight weeks. I spent 28 days in an extended care rehab facility following surgery. Needless to say, this was not a pleasant experience.

I am writing this review to encourage the restaurant to provide a safer atmosphere for its diners. I would suggest a ramp like construction rather than step downs from elevated areas.

To add a little emphasis to this request, additional diners in my July 25 party observed a women nearly falling near the same area of the restaurant. This happened shortly after I had been removed by an EMS unit.

I was also disappointed in the restaurants compassion to my situation.

“A Classic Steakhouse”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

One of our favorite steakhouse's in So Cal. Red's features top quality beef, lamb and pork and fresh seafood. The Prime Rib is a specialty and served in large portions (even the Petite cut). Side dishes are excellent. The baked potatoes alone could make a meal. Classic cocktails and a superb wine list compliment your meal. An experienced service staff provides a relaxed and enjoyable experience. Reservations are a must especially during the Del Mar Horse Racing season August-September and now during November. Valet parking only.

“Del Mar's New School”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Fads come and go, but class remains! Simply the best Martini's and drinks in town. A real pour and real portions of some of the very best choice food you'll have in Southern Calif. Produce that is Farm to table good. So for us that travel the world, there's no place like home! Paul Von Petersen-SJUTV
