    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.

    I had eaten at the Rock'N Fish in Manhattan Beach and liked it, so we decided to give the one at the LA Live a try. Great place! Seated right away. Service was outstanding and the food was delicious. Will definitely come back here again.

    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.

    My husband and I had crab cakes and their special fish. The crab cakes were so fishy we couldn't eat them. The fish was dry and fishy and unbeaten also. 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.

    As a creature of habit I usually order the same thing when I visit! For starters the Maui Poke is fresh, sweet & spicy which tantelizes the tastebuds. Followed by the Soup du Jour - Spicy Udon Shrimp which was excellent! My "usual" is the Kapalua Rib Eye which I get medium rare. This is the most flavorful and I'm almost always satisfied. However, this past visit my rib eye was a bit on the dry side. I ate most of it just the same because the TASTE is always there. My friend had the Power Play King Crab legs which I tasted and that, too, was a little dry. Great flavor...just a little dry. What keeps me coming back is the Sticky Toffee Pudding! Indelectably indescribable!
