    I don't have anything negative to say about RockNFish but it was just so so. It's a chain restaurant in a good location so if you're in the downtown area by Staples and need a quick bite this place will fill the bill. If your looking for a special occasion dining spot there are much better options. We chose this place simply for location and ability to host large group.

    LA Live is an exciting destination. However, Rock N Fish needs to improve its act. The food for our group received mixed reviews. The service was unacceptable. It only improved when the manager became aware of the lack of service by the waiter. The manager took the time and had the interest to improve our dining experience.

    First I want to say the service (Andre') and the food (New Orleans Shrimp and Blackened Rock Fish) were excellent! We ate here before a concert, had 6:30 reservations and were taken on time. Unfortunately, the kitchen was overwhelmed and instead of slowing down the seating the management continued to seat everyone which resulted in it taking 45 minutes to get out food! The manager came to the table after we asked the waiter about our meals, I told him we had been waiting almost an hour for our food -he responded it was only 42 minutes!! That really surprised us-maybe he could have bought us a drink and actually apologized.

    Pros: seated right away (with a reservation), great service, not rushed, shrimp cocktail and fish and chips were excellent Cons: Only a two-stall bathroom for the entire restaurant (and it was dirty), "grilled" artichoke was cold (MB is better), no espresso machine, Irish Coffee served without cream, no steamed clams, no fruit option for dessert. Notified them in advance of our anniversary celebration, but no one made note of it, or did anything special. Bottom Line: An OK place to go prior to a Staples event, but it could be better with a few minor changes.

    First time going to Rock'N Fish. My friend likes seafood and I came across this place during a Google search. Booked a table via OpenTable just in case it was busy. No problem with reservation. Staff was friendly and helpful. Ordered the fried calamari; not many in the order to justify the $13 price. Tasted good though. Friend ordered the fish tacos; they were good. I had the fish & chips. They were pretty bland; I was not impressed. Friend ordered Dos Equis but they were out. I ordered the Rock'n Margarita; that was pretty good. All-in-all I might give it one more chance to make a final determination.

    I always eat here when going to a concert at LA Live. Food and service are always great, drinks too!! This time I feel that the portions for dinner were very small, the menu said Ten oz sirloin, it was more like 6 oz, and I shared with my daughter before the Demi Lovato concert, so a little off this time.. Great service though.

    Rock'N Fish is pretty pricey for what you get. It's a basic, trendy fish restaurant, but far from special. Nice decor and a good vibe, but the service was really lacking on our visit; the waiter acknowledged it several times, but never seemed to get his act together. Mildly pleasing.

    The food was good, but the service was terribly slow. We had to ask for things several times. We also asked to make a substitution on one of the dishes, but instead of substituting, they charged us for another side order. When we complained, the waiter said, "at least I did not charge you for extra salad dressing".

    My wife and I went here for our 21st anniversary, the atmosphere was great. The food was excellent, as well as the service. Within a few minutes of being seated we had our drink orders in, and a fresh loaf of bread on our table. We did the whole meal in under 2 hours...and that was on a Saturday night! We even had dessert. By the way...try the bread pudding...it was awesome! We will definitely be back.

    When the Sparks are in town we will occasionally dine here because of the location and variety of good food. The service is usually above average and today it was excellent and attentive making our dining experience very pleasant. The food was above average as I ordered the BBQ Pulled Pork sandwich with regular French fries that was filling, tasty and hot. My wife ordered the “Big Easy” Spicy Shrimp and Sausage Gumbo with sticky rice which was not excellent but, above average. The food prices are a little high for the lunch crowd as you should be prepared to spend $40 to $50 per couple with the dinner prices even more. If you are into people watching, the outdoor dining area offers such a location to watch the many passersby.

    The food was delicious! It was what I expected for an American fare bar and grille type restaurant. Our server was great, but the good took too long to get to us. I'm not sure if the kitchen was backed up, but it should not have taken so long to receive our meals. I can't say I would visit again because Rock N Fish wasn't amazing like a potential go-to restaurant, but I did enjoy this experience.

    My wife and I absolutely loved this place! We decided to eat here because they participated in the "Dinner & a Movie" promotion from L.A. Live. But this place was just fantastic. We both had the summer Surf & Turf (we couldn't pass up a 6oz steak and lobster tail for such a great price), and it was great. The steak was made to order perfectly and the lobster just melted in your mouth. Although this place is definitely a bit pricey, it is well worth the money.

The server was told and did nothing, but she seemed overwhelmed by the crowd. In addition there were only two stall in the woman's restroom and one did not work. The line was 15 deep or more.

    Hubby and I were very lucky to have secured a reservation on Friday, June 13th 2014 at 6:30pm. We were seated immediately upon arrival and were greeted with a very nice size loaf of warm toasty sourdough bread and butter and ice water. The restaurant was extremely busy as it was Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals LA Kings vs. NY Rangers. Our waiter Michael came right over and went through the tap list and appetizer offerings with us. We opted for two schooners, Point the Way from Golden Road and Sculpin from Ballast Point. We had the beer battered popcorn shrimp appetizer, the Bleu Cheese Wedge Salad and the grilled Mahi Mahi fish tacos, all excellent. The dessert came a little later - LA won.

    We didn't realize that the 2nd game of the Stanley Cup Finals was being played the night we booked the reservation @ Rock'n Fish L.A. Live. We were surrounded by tons of hockey fans, found our way to the restaurant, were seated in the loth we requested and ate a light meal. The food was very good as was the service. The restaurant was SOOOO noisy due to the Kings game but all the restaurants in L.A. Live were buzzing with fans.

It didn't seem that busy but we didn't see waiter often, he didn't offer us dessert or another round of drinks. He seemed bothered when he brought us our check and we decided we wanted to order more.
