  • "When your date tells you that "dinner was perfect" you know you did well but I have to hand it to Red Rocks and their staff for helping me make them the best surprise choice for a night out. Her spinach ravioli and my blackened avacado tuna were absolutely out of this world, perfect serving temperature and all and the wine selection was spot-on as well."

  • "Met friends for dinner at our favorite Charlotte restaurant! Always feel special when we walk in the door. Dante was there to greet us. We were seated at a wonderful booth. Service and food was terrific. Never felt rushed during our meal and our lovely server made sure that we had everything we needed. There are a lot of restaurants out there, but Red Rocks is at the top of our favorites list."

  • "The hostess that opened the door was very pleasant The hostess that seated us was bordering on complete disinterest. Our waiter was excellent and very attentive. The food was good but they brought it while we were in the middle of eating our salad a big pet peeve of mine. Dessert was okay but a little dry."

  • "Our party of 8 enjoyed having dinner at Red Rocks. We requested a quieter area prior to arriving and we had a lovely table that was in a less noisy area of the restaurant. The menu was quite extensive and everyone was pleased with their choice. Desserts looked delicious and HUGE...no one had enough room in their bellies unfortunately."

  • "This was my first time at Red Rocks Cafe and we had a great overall experience. It was pretty busy for a mid week night - but with our reservation we got right in. Service was excellent, our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. I saw some interesting menu options - things a bit different than you might see at other restaurants, so I liked the diversity of offerings. We had the buffalo calamari dish which was unique and different - I enjoyed it. I had one of the dinner specials - filet medallions with a crawfish etouffee and it was good, but not over the top amazing. I would certainly go back to try another dish though. The outdoor seating area looked nice although we were sat inside."

  • "My fiance and I love this place. The food is always great. The service is always great. We recommend this restaurant to everyone. I love the Quattro Formaggio and my fiance loves the Chicken Cajun Pasta. We always have to take the Oreo Cheesecake to go, so we can enjoy that later."

  • "Quality and portions of food was not what we had when we first came to Charlotte. Our first visit the steaks were freshly cooked & served sizzling hot. As a matter of fact it was so good we went back the next weekend. Food has gone downhill since. This time the steaks looked like they were rewarmed. Coconut cake was fresh but not very tasty, mine is better. Waiter weas good once he warmed up. Our family had fun however we will choose another restaurant next occasion."

  • "The food was delicious! I started with the spinach salad app, I really enjoyed the bacon vinaigrette. For dinner, I ordered the crab cakes and my husband ordered the meatloaf. Both meals met our expectation. Friends of ours ordered the buffalo calamari appetizer, also delicious. Save room for dessert too! I had the coconut cake and my husband had the carrot cake. We had a great meal and we will be back soon! (even if we don't go for dinner, we will at least grab some dessert) I highly recommend Red Rocks."

  • "My wife and I went to Red Rocks for our Valentine's evening out and had a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and the service was attentive without being clingy. Our primary server was friendly, funny, informative and kept an eye on our needs. The wine list is limited but had some very good items on it. The desserts were also really good, especially the 5-layer chocolate cake and the key lime pie. We will definitely re-visit Red Rocks."

  • "Started in the bar to wait for our table: Bar tender wouldn't change the tv to duke/Maryland game (who in NC doesn't watch acc basketball???) & made us feel like we were in his way while we waited for our table, even though we were having a glass of wine. After we were seated: Drinks, ordering, and food took a very long time. Server spilled a drink on my husband. Steaks all were way overdone. We will not be back."

  • "When you dine out any weekend, but especially on Valentine's Day, you can't expect the best service and/or food. But that was not the case with Red Rocks. We always enjoying dining here, but everything went as clock work on this very busy holiday. The service and timing were perfect, and the food delish as usual. Wish they even had a closer location to our Huntingtowne Farms home - and we would eat their weekly!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The service was great and food was delicious! Cool ambiance and even has some TVs so we didn't miss games/Olympics. We had the crab and artichoke dip! Delicious. The grouper, ribeye, and bison meatloaf. Chocolate cake was enough for our group to share! Just some good comfy quality food and a relaxed atmosphere. Think upscale and warmer Bonefish/Outback/Carabbas."

  • "Started looking for reservations a week before and couldn't find anything between 6:00-9:00 at the usual $40-$50 per entre places. I'm glad we couldn't because we had a fantastic meal, with wine, cocktails and dessert for less @ Red Rocks. Our reservation was for 8:30 and we were seated at 8:45. The service was great and we agreed that our grouper and salmon was the best anywhere."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Usually food/service is good. Not a fine dining experience, but good "upscale everyday food." Last Saturday the service was good, the food was not. I have had the sea bass 2 times previously (excellent!), so I felt safe with seafood, ordering the salmon med. rare with Cajun cream sauce and risotto. I received a disaster on a plate. A tail piece of fish, dry & overcooked, no cream sauce, and "risotto" that could have been mushy, Spanish rice-a-roni. Awful! Manager was quick to offer alternative, and delivered seafood pasta promptly. It was hot and flavorful, but only had 2 shrimp, 4 soft, un-seared scallops & LOTS of pasta. Hopefully the problems we had were as a result of being busy, but that is no reason diners should have to suffer!"

We live close by and truly enjoy the dining experience here. I usually order one of the great steak dishes and have always been pleased. However, I tried the Dell Curry Chicken Penne Pasta and it was delicious. We look forward to our next visit in the near future."

  • "The food at Red Rocks Cafe is very good. We went for Queen's Fest and the restaurant was extremely busy. Our server did not allow the hectic pace of the restaurant interfere with her marvelous service. The portions were fairly small,not the norm for Red Rock's.. I'm pretty certain that we'll return when the menu is it's regular fare. You actually could have ordered off the regular menu but we were all there for Quee's Fest,hence the smaller portions. I really found that the charge of $2.75 for club soda to be EXCESSIVE."
