Often dine befor the Lakers games. Good food. I LOVE the crab cakes. I had the side salad and spinach to go with it. All the dishes look good as they pass by. There is always a crowd. This time we were smart. Made reservations!

Will It Be Better Next Time???
As you see we did enjoy the whole OpenTable experience. This was our first time and it was great except for the gumbo I decided to have as a special treat coming from Las Vegas!! I was not able to eat but a couple of spoonsful of the sticky rice and the thick sauce because it reminded me of a kind of sauce or gravy one would have with stewed chicken or pork chops over rice. First of all, I was born and raised in Louisiana and your special dish did not remotely resemble what we southerners call "gumbo!" This is not unusual and I try to steer away from places that claim to know how to prepare gumbo. What was attractive and appealing about your restaurant is that it is a FISH/SEAFOOD place and we figured that you would certainly know......

Our Go-to Restaurant at LA Live
Rock'n Fish is our go-to restaurant whenever we visit LA Live. We enjoy the casual, friendly atmosphere and great service. The food is excellent and there is a good selection of beer and wine. Love the Jambalaya and the seafood dishes are nicely done! We have been to Rock'n Fish several times and have never been disappointed. Great restaurant!

The food is always very good and there garlic cheese bread is the best in town. The service was excellent.
4/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very good food, good and friendly service. Good place for pre-game or pre-concert at LA Live. The grilled artichoke was excellent; I've grilled them myself, but nothing close to this result.
5/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
Atmosphere is great. I recently took my girlfriend there for Mother's day and we both loved it. We got the Blackened Catfish. It was delicious. I would definitely recommend this place for a lunch or dinner spot. Its good for romantic type dates or just hanging out with friends. Great place and great food.
5/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Ribs, cole slaw, sweet potato fries and terrific service.
Martinis are spectacular as is their choice of wine.
Service is spectacular. Ribs are great as is cole slaw and bread!
Coctails are good too.

Good food, great atmosphere
The food here was really good. I ordered the BBQ shrimp and it was amazing, but a little bit on the pricey side (but what can you expect from LA Live?). We went to celebrate my friend's birthday and had noted that it was a birthday in our reservation. When the restaurant called to confirm, they told me we'd get a complimentary bread pudding. Unfortunately, our waiter never brought that to us and it seems like the fact that we were celebrating never got conveyed to our waiter. However, he was nice, friendly and patient with us. Overall, I had a good time, but probably wouldn't return unless I had a good reason to be at LA Live. The price of parking, food, and drinks is just too overwhelming to do often.
5/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was good, but you need to know what to order. The next time I venture out - I will choose the BBQ shrimp. The gentleman next to me had it and it looked divine. My penne pesto salmon was okay, but it was way too much penne and barely any pesto. The blackened salmon was pretty good. This dish seem to mesh together. My guy's Jambalya was excellent.

Dinner before Will Downing Concert
We had a great evening at Rock 'N Fish L.A. Live. As soon as we arrived there was someone in the front area to welcome us in for our 6:15 p.m. dinner reservation. We were seated in a nice area. The ambience made for a really nice evening. I had the jambalaya and my wife had the New Orleans bar-b-que shrimp. Both dishes were outstanding and we should know considering my wife is from Louisiana and is an expert in creole cooking. We were able to walk from the restaurant to the concert easily. The food was not terribly expensive either. We will be back.
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first visit to Rock n Fish. Our friends, my wife and I were very pleased with the food, service, and ambience.

Rock N Fish
Food was good. Went on Father's Day it was not crowded .So it was a pleasant experience.

Great Service, Great Smile!
We took our daughter and parents to Rock N Fish to celebrate her graduating from FIDM. The front desk was very accomodating to us since we were an hour and half early for our dinner reservations (graduation ended earlier than expected) and they seated us right away. Our server Michael W. was very friendly (great smile always makes a difference!), efficient, and checked with us regularly to make sure everything was great with us. Everyone enjoyed their food, including my father who is normally very particular, and he loved the Fish n Chips. Michael also offered my daughter a delicious dessert with a candle to celebrate her graduation. Thanks Michael W. and Rock N Fish for a great evening!
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Rock'n Fish L.A. Live was a wonderful place to take my daughter and grand-daughter to dinner just before the Justin Bieber concert. The ambience was elegant and professional. The service was outstanding, and the food was fantastic. It was a great place to relax and enjoy an excellent meal before the concert.
6/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
From the name you would expect this to be a seafood restaurant, however, there is something for everyone on the menu including pastas, steaks, etc. and some great Louisiana style dishes like gumbo and spicy shrimp. The crabcakes are delicious.
6/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good place to meet before Staples
I enjoy this restaurant very much.....always has a great vibe.

Missing the Chioppino
We've been to Rockin' Fish in Manhattan Beach and we were going to LA Live so we chose this restaurant because a couple of people in our party were looking forward to having the chioppino. It's no longer on the menu but we were told they could make it for us without the scallops. The people chose other dishes that were delicious but they both were a little disappointed they didn't get what they were hoping for.
The Navy Grogs were also way too strong, which is something one hardly ever says in a restaurant, but we were able to get more juice to help enhance the flavor of the drink and make them more enjoyable.
Our waiter was absolutely outstanding as was the rest of the staff.

Great food at LA Live
Went to see Kobe Live at the Nokia for our anniversary and decided to have dinner at Rock'n Fish. Traffic was terrible, so called to let them know and they held our table for 45 minutes. Nice! I had the Ahi - served perfectly medium rare. Good portion size and had a great smokiness from the grill. The mac and cheese was creamy with lots of cheese the way I like it, and the sautéed spin icy was well seasoned and very tender without being mushy. My wife had the crab cakes - wonderfully rich and loaded with crab chunks. Thankfully she couldn't eat them all so got to indulge! Plenty of good wines by the glass at reasonable prices. Their specialty wine list is something I'd like to explore in the future. We'll be back in the future.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect before an event
We enjoyed dinner before a concert. The food was wonderful and the service was timed well (without rushing us) so we had plenty of time to enjoy dinner and had more than enough time to get to the theater for the concert. Great evening overall.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Rockn..rocks! Cool place for food and plenty of drink....GO !

Food was excellent - service great. Will go there again.

Great for pre-concert dining
Dined here before going to a concert and overall it was very good. We started with the Poke Martini. The portion was more than enough for two to share, and it was very fresh and tasty. Main courses were Blackened Rockfish, which was very moist with just the right amount of spice, and Jambalaya, which was excellent! Our waiter was attentive without being smothering, and the service was prompt without feeling like we were being rushed. Overall a very good experience. We would recommend this restaurant.

Great place before a Staples event
Get here early before a game or concert at staples center. Great food, prompt and friendly service, and NAVY GROGS! Perfect start to fun night out. Make a reservation so you don't have to wait in line.

Good Food Adjacent Nokia Theatre
We were concerned about the proximity of the restaurant to the Theatre, which we were visiting for the first time. The entire LA Live complex was a great find; it's like one big outdoor complex right next door to the Staples Center. Parking, dining, and event all with a two minute walk.
Rock N Fish was highly energetic with a pre-USC football game crowd. My wife order grilled fresh Mahi-Mahi with fresh vegetables, while I had my Mahi-Mahi in Macademia nuts with spinach and mac&cheese. We both enjoyed our meals.
I attending another event at Nokia or Staples I would definitely visit Rock N Fish again.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Clam chowder was flavorful and lots of little goodies. Filet was cooked generally well, slightly under the temp desired, but was tasty. Presentation was visually interesting but not functional.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very high energy and lively setting! Sitting at the patio was great as we got to "people watch" and being at LA Live, there's always something going on. Only thing was that when we made the reservation, we noted that it was for a birthday celebration, but there was no acknowledgment of this from the restaurant staff. Overall, good dining experience..wait staff was very good.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Favorite for Laker Game
The best place to get a pretty decent meal at an OK price. Great seafood especially macadamia nut crusted Mahi Mahi. I also LOVE the crab cakes. They are my favorite. Wine was about $10 a glass. It's pretty crowed for games so try to make reservations if you can.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gotta step it up!
The seafood was fresh however, the food was very bland. Fully loaded baked potatoes appeared as if it has been sitting around other than prepared by order. Could have done without the sautéed spinach no flavor what so ever, the coleslaw cabbage and mayo with no extra, fish in chips bland tater sauce was ok Not sure how this place stays in business. Maybe by charging an arm and a leg
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was perfect
We had a very tight schedule for dinner last Friday night with a 7:15 reservation and a Moody Blues concert at the nearby Nokia Theater starting at 8:00. Rock 'N Fish seated us exactly at 7:15 and our waiter was extremely sensitive to our timeframe. He made sure that our food came out right away, hot and delicious as always. Crab cakes were outstanding and nobody makes a better mac 'n cheese! For any and all shows at Nokia or Staples Center, we will always choose Rock 'N Fish as our pre show dining destination. Keep up the great food and service.

The LA live location is a great spot before heading to an event in the downtown area. The food all around was great and the spicy mac and cheese is great! Service was excellent as well as the martinis.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great time and service. Nice crowd Clippers (boooo) followed by LAKESHOW and AMA's with Patriots vs Broncos on TV. AND I hit traffic and called ahead as I knew I'd be late and they still sat us!!!! YESSS!!!!
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food and great service
While it is part of restaurant row if offers a nice variety of food but what makes it stand out was the great service. The bar tenders are friendly and helpful and the servers were always checking in without being intrusive.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
I a hamburger for dinner and the roll was cold and stale. They immediately said no problem brought my new order with a smile and no charge for either dinner. I think they go way beyond normal. Great food and service. I ordered a gin martini and it came in a large bucket. I am glad we sat there for an hour so I could walk out the door. Best drinks and food in L.A.

Pre- Concert Meal
Made reservations prior to attending a concert at the Nokia Theather. We had a 6 P.M. reservation and we got sat immediatly upon arrival which was pleasing. Waiter did a great job and we enjoyed our meal prior to attending the concert. The service was good and allowed us plenty of time to eat comfotably and still get to the show in plenty of time.
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
reservations could be better
The food was great. Would recommend it to friends. However, the reservation service could have been better.
I called up the restaurant around 12:30pm on 12/3 to see if they had any available reservations for later that night. The person on the phone stated they were all booked up but we could do walk ins. I go on Open Table website and there are open reservations for 515pm (which was the time i wanted).
I reserved that time and when i got there, for at least the next 30 mins, there were lots of available tables. It would also be better if we were allowed to buy from the bar during happy hour and bring it to our table. The rule of having to eat and drink at the bar is a little strict.
