    We had reservations well ahead. We arrived and had to wait an hour to be seated. The air conditioning in the front to side area was bad. It was hot. I suspect we were seated In the hot area as more important individuals had preference to the co back area. I know this as I met a couple of prominent citizens who all went to the back. Not happy

    The food and service are always good at Red Rocks. However, this time the waiter went well beyond the call of duty. I hadn't remembered to note on my reservations that this was a birthday celebration, but the waiter figured it out and brought my friend's dessert with a candle and Happy Birthday written on the plate!

    My wife and I dined for lunch at the Red Rocks Cafe with another couple. Unfortunately, I would rate the Red Rocks Cafe as average at best. To begin with, the food arrived luke warm. In addition, I have eaten all over the world and have never seen broccoli served with the entire stalk attached. Broccoli is generally served with mainly the head of the broccoli and 1/2 to 1 inch of stalk attached. The serving of broccoli as small and without the stalks, almost nothing. The service was also mediocre. The waiter served the ice tea with very little ice and seldom came around to offer refills. Everyone in the group felt that the meal was substandard, and in summary, I doubt that any of us will return for a second meal.

    Hadn't been to Red Rocks in a while, so decided to eat there this past weekend. Seated us right away and our waiter showed up quickly. I asked about the Bison Burger and he told me there wasn't a bison Burger, just meatloaf. Either they were out, hadn't removed it from the menu yet or he was unfamiliar, but the conversation was a little off putting, I didn't point it out on the menu(it's there). I ended up with the almond grouper which was very good, husband had salmon which was very good as well. Wine is expensive by the glass, mostly because the pours seem much smaller than similar restaraunts in my opinion. Husband got dessert and I ordered mine to go. He brought my husbands to go and mine plated. We switched them out, no big deal.

    It's been several years since I have dined at Red Rocks. I had the tuna and my boyfriend had the steak. Out of the five restaurants we both agreed it came in second for taste and quality. Where the experience fell short had a lot to do with our server who came across as bored and judgmental on the extra items we ordered. My boyfriend doesn't drink alcohol and we ordered the non-alcoholic beer, our waiter smirked at his choice, not professional. (There are some great choices out there by the way beside O'Douls, a place with so many wine choices should pay more attention to other beverages on the menu) Our server continued with his attitude when I ordered a shot of espresso and my boyfriend did not. The service overall ruined the experience

    Restruant week dinner 6:15pm, ordered from regular menu. Booth near the front. Very loud as usual. Mgt appears to think the noise level is a positive. Salads are excellent while centres are average, price is a bit high for the quality, wine list needs a full refresh. Waiter Steve was very good.

    This restaurant reminds me of an airport restaurant. The menu looks enticing but you end up with a bland and disappointing experience. The food was lacking in flavor, appeared to have been sitting in a warmer for hours, and had the texture of being frozen or out of a box. The service was prompt but very apathetic, as if the restaurant's location is what draws customers and service can be delivered at an efficient but bare minimum. I would return here only to sit outside to have a few beers and people watch. Ordering food here is a waste of money though.

    The food was good and the waiter was knowledgable. We sat on the patio which provided great scenery of Birkdale. RR is not a WOW place to take someone but the food is solid. Our table had Chilean Sea Bass, Prime Filet, Grouper, and medallions. I tasted three of them and all were great. With a bottle of vino and three desserts $250 - not bad.

    My mom came to town and we drove up from South End to Birkdale for brunch at Red Rocks. She's always a huge fan of RR, but she's never been for brunch. Their brunch menu is not that extensive, but they do offer their full lunch menu at the same time as well.. I tried the crab cake eggs benedict and: eh. Nothing about it really wow'ed me. It wasn't terrible, but not all that warm when it hit the table... I probably wouldn't order it again. My mom, on the other hand, did enjoy her crepes (they looked delicious too!) - even if our waiter didn't want to bring her maple syrup for them.

    After reading several online reviews about this restaurant, we decided to come to Red Rocks for my birthday dinner. I was not completely blown away. The food was okay and our server started off on a high note but eventually stopped checking on us as he should have. We chose calamari for our appetizer. Like the fact that the appetizer was cut in steak consistency, but it was not seasoned at all. The entrees were very nice and enjoyed by all in our party. Not sure if I got my money's worth however, we decided to give this restaurant another try.

    Took the family out on a beautiful Saturday evening to a favorite eatery. It is tough to beat the Birkdale atmosphere when coupled with a varied menu of tasty offerings and attentive service. Red Rocks is part of our regular rotation as it never fails to please. Don't miss the awesome dessert tray, especially the incredible coconut cake!

    Food was fair. My salmon was dry even with a lite lemon sauce. My husband's ribeye was bland. Our service was very enjoyable; our waiter was very attentive and personable. The resturant was gathering place for locals. It was loud and very crowded bar scene. It was very warm which we complained about but never felt relief. Not sure I will return.

    I love Red Rocks, but.....this time we were there for Father's Day brunch. The food was waaaaay not worth the price. I could not even order what I wanted and I had to pay way more for a way lesser meal! Not worth it for the brunch, at all. We enjoyed the time together but regretted the crazy cost! Kind of put a damper on the day because it was soooooo not worth it.

    While I've dined at this Red Rocks numerous times, this time seemed a bit off. We were a party of 3, and we were seated next to a large table of 12-15 people - I should have spoken up, but didn't have a chance. At first our wait person was personable, presented the specials. But as time went by, they seemed to run out of patience and became rather short with us. Guess they just wanted to get off the clock quickly, but I felt quite rushed to order and to eat. Dinner was good - I always like their seafood dishes, although the plating was quite bare. The fish was ample sized, but the sides were minimal and just piled under it. It didn't look as well as it tasted - perhaps a bad night, with graduations, etc going on. But I'd return.

    We were asked to try to Copper Salmon and was told how different it was in taste and looks. It had a pretty reddish pink color and seemed, by sight to be a tasty piece of fish. It was however drier that the regular salmon. It was supposed to be cooked medium and it didn't appear or taste tender at all. The flavor was different but did not WOW me or my wife. I would not recommend it for additional $10. The regular salmon cooked medium would be just fine. Other than that, the restaurant is Great. I enjoy the entree's especially the dessert.

    We were passing through town and booked this restaurant thirty minutes ahead based on Open Table reviews. Staff was courteous, greeted us by name, and took good care of us throughout the meal. The wine selection pleased us. Our salads were very good - mine a baby greens salad with pomegranate vinaigrette dressing. Kathy had a steak salad. I ordered the ribeye. Both meats were prepared at just the right temperature. Yes, we would return.
