    I booked this reservation several days before and was upset that my party of three arrived about 15 minutes before our 5:45 reservation and when I came up to the hostess saying that we were ready for our table I was told that only a high top was available. This was not acceptable to us since we came in with a confirmed reservation and not just off the street. The hostess had a bit of an attitude when I questioned this and was told that we would have a half hour wait for a regular table.

    I had a reservation, but no table was available. After 30 minutes, we were offered a table in a "quieter" part of the restaurant. That worked until the speakers, one right above our table were turned on. Conversation was no longer possible. Parking was also a nightmare, with waits of over 10 minutes. Apparently, they have no idea where they park your car, so they just run around until they find your car. Eventually, I spotted my own car, just 30 feet away. All in all, the evening was awful. I have enjoyed Rocco's in the past-no longer will it be high on my list.

  • Rocco's Tacos - a miss for me

    Dined on 10/15/2014
    I must say, mexican food is not my favorite because I have a chili allergy, but usually I can find a handful of items that I can eat without issue. Rocco's had a menu w/ chili powder in every dish. Literally. They have a homemade spice mix that has chili in it & was told by waiter (thru chef) that it's used on everything. The only thing I was able to safely eat was a cheese quesadilla, tasty, but boring w/o guacamole or pico de gallo (they use chili powder & chilies in them). Waiter very sensitive & helpful so 4 stars for the service, not 5 as it took a long time to actually get food/service. Nice outdoor seating. Overall, a miss for me for food, but would consider a drink in the lounge area.

    I've always been a fan of Rocco's. I love the guacamole and the chips are really spectacular. As always, I enjoy the food in the moment, but regret getting anything other than guacamole the rest of the night/next day. And it's consistently like that at all locations. Not sure if it's the seasoning the make the tacos with, or the hot sauce not meshing well with my stomach, but it literally happens everytime I eat there. Not sure what it is, but after being burned so many times, I think I'm going to only get guac from now on. Service was really great, our server was "Breezy" and he was beyond fabulous. Didn't like how I had to wait for the 2 late people in my party to show up to be seated.

    I am a frequent visitor to Rocco's Tacos and highly recommend this vibrant restaurant. I've visited Rocco's about 3 or 4 times in the past month. Stop by for they home-made guacamole which is absolutely wonderful and made right ay your table. The tacos are awesome and we seem to order the same menu items each time because they are so very good. I cannot say enough good things about Rocco's!

    This was the second time I've been to Rocco's Tacos. My first visit was in January. I was really happy this time because the weather was great so we sat outside. We got placed away from the bar which was full. I wouldn't have minded being near the action but I guess it was nice to be in a quieter area. The food was better than I remembered. We ordered guacamole, ceviche, and I had a pork taco. The first time I ordered tacos there was way more cheese than what I like, so this time I asked for no cheese. The first time they also had two tortilla shells on my 3 tacos which was too thick for my liking...this time there was only one. I will be going back again and ordering the guacamole. The chips and guacamole are a huge portion, but delicious.

    my family was recently in palm beach gardens staying at the PGA National resort and this restaurant was recommended by the valet staff. They said it was fun, yummy and kid friendly and they were right! It was so good and the guacamole was sensational! The waitstaff was wonderful and the décor was so fun! I highly recommend this restaurant! My kids loved it and they are extremely picky!

    I've been to Rocco's Tacos several times. Their guacamole is amazing and all the dishes I've had were delicious. The visual ambiance of Rocco's is gorgeous. Amber colored lights, flame torches on the patio and an overall rustic feel. My ONLY complaint is that it's WAY too loud. If you're going here for dinner expect an almost club like atmosphere and to not be able to hear what the person next to you is saying without shouting.

    I made an opentable reservation which they did not honor and I specifically asked for a booth and did not save one. The hostess said they don't honor the reservations and did not make me, the guest, feel welcomed or comfortable to dine in. They also left my partner and I standing clueless in the middle of the dining room trying to find a seat to place us at. On the other hand, my server was great and the food was good as expected even though I had to sit outside.

    We sat inside last time and didn't like it as well as outside. You have to talk over loud music. Guacamole and chips were excellent. Both our meals were not as good as last time, and mine was much spicier than before. Still OK, but I wouldn't order the same thing again.

    Went with my husband and another couple to celebrate my birthday, and everything about this night was awful. When something spilled and we used our napkins to mop it up, we asked the waiter for more napkins..and he brought one for the four of us. When our frozen margaritas arrived melted, the waiter took them back, and the bartender must have just added ice, because they came back frozen but tasteless. My husband and I ordered a dish that had several ingredients, but asked for ours with no chicken. It came with chicken. By the time they re-made the dish, our friends had finished eating. I ordered a second frozen margarita with dinner. It was better, but there was a large chunk of glass missing from the base of my glass. Never going back.

    My spouse and I were looking forward to trying Rocco's for several months. From the outside we saw it as a hopping place with a sweet looking atmosphere. We were sorely disappointed. Parking was stressful and a nightmare (narrow lot with limited spots), waiter was incredibly awkward, the acoustics were awful (couldn't hear one another talk) and the food made our stomachs hurt. The guacamole appetizer was delicious and the cooking presentation was neat, but the restaurant was incredibly narrow to squeeze by. This is a bar restaurant and for that reason we wouldn't return again.

    I'm a Rocco's Tacos fan. I've eaten in West Palm and Palm Beach Gardens locations. Everything is good, service is good. Only complaint is server convinced me to try a different tequila in my margarita. First one was fine. Second one was made differently. He claimed bartender put a floater in it. It tasted more like paint remover. The glass was too full as we'll and all the salt on the rim washed off both margaritas. What's the point of getting salt if it's going to get washed away? Otherwise dinner was great. I enjoy the Garden's location because it's not as crazy as the Clematis St location.

    Keeping things in perspective, Rocco's was very good. Friendly prompt service. Food was good. Nice outdoor seating, people were having a good time. What more could you want if you are not looking for gourmet dining. Oh, prices were fair too! Go with some friends and/or your dog! Too loud for dogs in my opinion, but some sported them anyway.

    A good idea gone bad. It is so noisy that it is even hard to hear yourself think. The food, at best, was decent but hard to appreciate when all you could do was hope it would end quickly. Anyone over the age of 25 and has nothing to talk about to their dining partner will like this place. The service was spotty and very un-attentive...they could probably stand to have a few less tables per server.

    Although Rocco's is a local chain, a first time guest would never know it. The menu is unique, the choices varied and inclusive, and the atmosphere fresh. The hook here is the guacamole bar, brought tableside, to be made freshly for you with your customized choice of flavors. Our salad portions were huge and either could be shared or brought home for a subsequent meal. And the eponymous tacos are full, flavorful and well presented and worth a try even as just a side.

    While the food was ok, I had the chile relano with goat cheese and a cheese enchaliada on the side, it was not authentic Mexican. It was wall street chain food. The chips, salsa and guacamole were very good, fresh, homemade, but the entrée was to Americanized. If I go back, it will be for lunch and I will try the tacos as I understand the taco is homemade. The service was very good and the wait staff was very concerned that we liked our dinners. My husband had the pork burrito, he said it was good, but not great. I left most of it on the plate. The burrito is served cold.
