Houston >Cafe Red Onion
“My family and I visited the Kirby location on Friday, March 7, 2003 to celebrate wedding anniversaries and a birthday, and we had a good time.”
“had the coffee crusted beef filet which was very flavorful (a bit undercooked) but the side items were: a mound of french fried onion rings on a pool of queso, roasted corn, grilled zuchini and yellow squash, and limp fried plantains.”
“The pineapple salsa is awesome.”
“very nice menu, something defferent for everybody.”
“great place to just chill”
“very up beat great service.”
“Best of all, the prices were very affordable $10 will buy you an amazing lunch.”
“We were seated and then waited for 15 minutes, in the abnormally hot dining room, for the water we ordered because there were no clean glasses available in the kitchen.”
delicious food, attentive servers, great ambience. My boyfriend and I live near the cafe and stopped in one night for an early dinner. Absolutely loved everything from start to finish. It was his birthday, and we were surprised to get a free shrimp appetizer as well as a delicious piece of pie for dessert. The servers were very gracious and knowledgeable with the menu. THe margaritas are great (both frozen and on the rocks)....and the pineapple salsa was a great treat. Definitely recommend this place for a unique twist on latino cuisine.
Creative, Innovative Latinamerican food.
Have enjoyed our dinners at this new location. The salsas are very nice, especially the pineapple salsa. The Margaritas are also very good.
The dishes are quite inventive and although not original Latinamerican dishes, they are quite lovely to look at (great presentation) and delicious.
The place can be a bit loud, especially one it's full. Our waitress was very sweet, but seemed so busy that sometimes she seemed to neglect our table. Perhaps more wait staff is needed?
Keep up the good work and please make sure the plaintain are nice and ripe before frying!
Chicken Belize - Yummy!. Ate lunch here a few times .... nice little upbeat place for a quick casual lunch. The food reminds me of cali - very light and colorful. The pineapple salsa is awesome. If your meeting someone, just remember everyone in your party must be present to be seated. Thats my only complaint considering I had to wait 10 minutes for my other half to get there. I guess you have to do it that way bec. its always busy :)
Food that's as good as it looks. What a lovely surprise this place was. We stopped in there basically to get out of a bad storm. Knew nothing about the place, and were blown away. The mango margaritas are wonderful, and all of the entrees we ordered--from chicken quesadillias to seafood enchiladas to the Chicken Brazil--were beautifully presented and very flavorful. A lot of bang for your buck. I'll be going back next time I'm in Houston!
Great Food!!!. Cafe Red Onion is a breath of fresh air to the Houston Dining Scene. The combination of Latin and Carribean flavors create a salsa inpsired cance for your tastebuds. I have eaten there once a week for the past month and each meal has been a delicate balance of carribean herbs with latin spices that makes me want to lick my plate clean!
High Energy & Great Food. My family and I visited the Kirby location on Friday, March 7, 2003 to celebrate wedding anniversaries and a birthday, and we had a good time. My only complaint is the seating. We were a party of ten (10) and we were seated near a corner and we were extremely crowded and uncomfortable. Other than that, I recommend this restaurant if you want a great meal.
great salsas. A very cozy restaurant with excellent attentive service. The mango salsa is too die for and chicken brazil is excellent. Prices were great and the serving amounts on the food were perfect. We have been 3 times and every one was excellent.
Oh WOW. Finally got to dine here, and I will certainly be back! We just had lunch and it was great. Chicken Brasil was outstanding. The food was great, presented creatively, and affordable! I will be back for dinner to check out the wine list and desert menu for sure.
Try it! You'll like it! ...Probably.... I have eaten at the 290 and Kirby locations, as well as the new Eldridge location and I have always had an enjoyable experience. Sure you have to wait sometimes, but you have to in a lot of places. The food has always been good and the waitstaff has always ranged between good and great. Now if they would just expand the menu and the dining area a bit I'd be happy. Definately worth a try!
