New favorite resteraunt !!!
The Steak and lobster tail my wife and I had were both cooked to perfection. The calamari was fantastic for appetizer. The sides of Mac and cheese and smashed potatoes were excellent. Our waitress was a little quiet and reserved but noticed a few other serve staff members with a little more energy. One of the best meals I have had in Little Rock and might be our new favorite resteraunt. The steak was better than one of the owners other steak houses. Have already highly recommended to friends.

My new favorite restaurant in LR
This is a great new restaurant in a city filled with fine dining experiences. My husband, daughter and I had dinner there after a swim meet on May 10th and were all enthusiastic about our experience. The calamari appetizer was the best I've ever had, light crispy batter and tender meaty chunks. I am snobby about cocktails but the lemon drop martini did not disappoint. My husband's steak was tender and cooked just right, the mac and cheese side dish is definitely tasty. The ahi tuna was absolutely the best I've ever had anywhere. We finished with the tiramisu which was not as good as mine but worth the calories. The decor and ambiance is unique and interesting. Don't miss this restaurant!

Date Night Fun
We really enjoyed our dining experience at Rocket 21. The food and the service was top notch, and the music in the bar later was outstanding. It is great to see live music in fine dining establishments. I hope we can return soon.

My husband and I wanted to try some place new and interesting for our 19th anniversary dinner. We selected Rocket 21 due to favorable reputation and great reviews. We could not have been happier! The service was perfect. The food was hot, fresh and delicious. My steak was cooked to a perfect medium rare. my husbands steak was over done. We politely told our server and they made a new one with new complaints and cooked perfectly. They even subtracted the cost from our bill. You must order a Chocolate Martini. It was WONDERFUL!The atmosphere was very trendy and in a hip Little Rock neighborhood. We will be going back soon!!!!

First time but won't be last time.
Have heard radio ads for weeks and wanted to try it. Wasn't as crowded as I was expecting, service - food quality and price - ambience was all it was advertised. Will make more trips here and will try lunch.

I have been wanting to try
I have been wanting to try this restaurant for a while after hearing about it on the radio (The Buzz) multilple times. The food and service were excellent. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Twenty-One gun salute
For over 10 years my dinner group has met on the 2nd Monday of each month. We've never repeated a restaurant. Rocket Twenty-One was a big hit this month. On a hot summer evening the bar provided literal and figurative cooling with great cocktails and a sleek lighted white bar that gave you the impression you were sitting at a giant frozen slab of ice. Great decor, including the aquarium. Dinner was innovative and delicious, from our starters of Truffled Mushroom and Brie Flatbread, to the Gouda Grilled cheese with Smoked Salmon. My Fried Pollock with Purple Hull peas and grilled shrimp remoulade was outstanding. Crisp fish with no greasiness. We finished with Godiva Chocolate Cheese Cake that was just scrumptious.

Rocket rocks !
Our super-great waiter was very informative and attentive, but not hovering. He took our drink orders and got the calamari going while we looked at an early-bird menu. It was not skimpy, but had lots of choices, even if the restaurant was out of pollock that evening. Salmon with quinoa made a lovely plate with beets decorating the fish. The evening then had a big hit with Peanut Butter Pie - drizzled with chocolate. We'll go back soon !

This was my first visit to Rocket Twenty-One and it was a delight. The setting was fantastic, the food was delicious, and the service was spectacular. I will certainly dine there again.

My new favorite
Had been referred by a friend. Had reservations for 4 but decided to eat in the bar because the bartender was great! Staff very attentive, drinks great, bone in ribeye is fantastic! Wine list good but a little high on the mark up. Will definately be a regular. Great place for patio dining when it cools off a bit. I give Rocket 21 4 3/4 stars out of 5.

A Hidden Gem
Rocket 21 is truly a Hidden Gem.
Wonderful atmosphere, ambiance, and fantastic food!
I will recommend this place to all of my friends.

I think the new ownership/managemen
I think the new ownership/management/chef are doing well. Our server was very good. I enjoyed the "Shrimp and Grits" which, contrary to the usual preparation, is not spicy at all. My wife enjoyed the duck breast. We were on our way to a concert, so couldn't spend much time perusing the wine list, but it seemed to be adequate with a nice variety of fairly priced wines.

My husband and I decided to go to Twenty-One for his birthday after mulling over several wonderful restaurants. We were on the edge about it, but were delighted with our experience! Every morsel for food was AMAZING! My husband had a filet which was easily as good as or better than the top steak house in Little Rock (which I will leave unnamed). I had the fried chicken dinner with blue cheese mashed potatoes, collard greens, and black eyed peas; wow! We topped it off with peanut butter pie which was also fantastic! Also, the service was fantastic. Payne, our waiter, was very attentive and friendly without being stuffy - how refreshing! Twenty-One is now one of our ultimate favorites. We plan to go back next month for my birthday!

Great food of what they had
Our food was very good, but I was disappointed that they were out of FOUR entrees at 6:00 on a Saturday night. No chicken piccata (although they did have chicken Marsala), no 14 oz ribeye, no short ribs, and no fish of the day. Several of us had to go to a plan b because of this.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food with attentive but not overpowering waitstaff. Go for the food but also go for the Blue Dog art by Rodrigue.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had the duck, which was on the menu for the first time. The breast was good, but the quarter was fantastic! My husband's steak was good, and we both enjoyed the calamari appetizer. Definitely a special occasion place for us, but I would recommend to friends.
