It was a last minute decision (of a few hours prior) to go here to celebrate an anniversary. Tried to reserve a table via OpenTable but that was not available. We tried our luck anyway.

Its a lovely restaurant that has really nice, romantic ambience. I’d highly recommend it for dates.
Service was impeccable, the staff very attentive, helpful & friendly. Food was good. Would recommend for vegetarians/vegans as they do take special care of ensuring the food served is according to your dietary restrictions (when mentioned / requested, obviously).

High chances of us returning here :)

Though the place was crowded quite early on a cloudy evening, the place was jumping. The bar scene is clearly the draw, and there were few open spaces. We were lucky enough to get a table--calling for reservations does not seem to work here (no one answers, ever). We enjoyed guajillo sauce with the appetizer more than any other item. My chicken tacos were dry and pretty tasteless, while the mole was filling but pretty ordinary. La Viga and LV Mar are far superior choices.

There are plenty of Mexican restaurants in downtown Redwood City. Quinto is a sit down and get waited on Mexican which is nice for enjoying an afternoon with friends. I get the Azteca Soup every time I go. It is amazing! The chips and salsa are very good too. My friends all try different things and seem to enjoy what they get. Some of the platters can be very large, so be sure to go hungry!

The restaurant is right across from the movie theatre which is super convenient. We had the Shrimp Diabla and the Mole Poblano. The shrimp were called spicy but I didn't find them that way at all but they were still good. My wife thought the Mole was terrific.

Excellent food. This is a high class Mexican restaurant. This is not a cheap, low class establishment. The food is amazing and is always busy on weekend nights. They only take reservations on weekday nights. So, if you plan on going on the weekend, get there when it opens (5 pm) or plan for a pleasant wait in beautiful downtown Redwood City.
