A word from Rococo Steak
We envisioned a steakhouse and lounge unlike any other. A revolutionary steakhouse, in both cuisine and design, which would challenge the strict traditions of American steakhouses. The result is Rococo Steak.

The menu has a larger selection of small steaks, including unique grass-fed options, more playful appetizers, and craveable side dishes. The hip, contemporary design conveys intimacy and sensuality, yet provides a spirited atmosphere for socializing.

Welcome to The Art of Steak!

    The food was excellent especially the prime rib & I am a New Yorker who has eaten Prime rib in many resteraunts but none like this. There were 2 items on the menu that they were out of which is bad for a Saturday night,but every thing else made up for it.Everyone in our group felt the same way abot the food and atmosphere.The only thing that I didn't like was the spicey bacon caesar salad which was not spice but bland. I am sorry they were out of the goat cheese pie which was what I & 3 others wanted.Our samll group was very lucky to have the private dinning room which made it feel like a party. The service and waitress was EXCELLENT!

    I had three surprisingly large Grouper cheeks and 4 delicate baby lamb chops all on a bed of rainbow chard that was cooked and seasoned to perfection. The chops were topped with three Caper berries that added a layer of flavor to both the lamb and the fish that is nearly indescribable. The grouper tasted like fresh hot-buttered popcorn with a sweet and mildly salty finish. The chops had a stronger, meaty flavor that the caper berries cut through at just the right moment. Our wait staff person, David, was extraordinarily knowledgeable. The dining room was quiet but not empty and as each table received it's meals, we actually began to chat between tables about them. It was a perfect meal, prepared and served perfectly.

    We love the restaurant for many reasons but foremost for the offering of grass fed beef. Due to health issues, my husband and I can only order beef if it is grass fed. The searing process is fabulous but this time I had the filet and the salt was overwhelming. It bothered me all evening and for that I was not pleased. I never have experienced that before at Rococo so I hope it was a one time happening. We intend to return as we have been there many, many times and just hope that we don't experience the "salt issue" again. We dined outside and it was just lovely.

    Food was very tasty. Service was very good. Overall, we enjoyed our dinner very much. Tasty beef and sides. And the chocolate peanut butter dessert was fantastic. Only one minor issue. My prime rib should have been warmer. My first reaction with that first bite was that it was not quite warm enough. Not cold, but not thoroughly warm either. Almost like it sat for a few minutes before coming out. Other than that, very good.

    Rococo was fine, just not anything out of the ordinary. I appreciate their inclusion of grass fed, antibiotic free steak. Their beet, watermelon radish salad was not a hit; way too much radish and not enough beet. The Okinawa sweet potatoes were unusual, but a bit too sweet, not sure what was added. Mushrooms were good. Bread was warm, but plain vanilla. Would go again, but not rushing back.

    Birthday gift from my wife at a new spot turned into the worst experience ever at an upscale dining spot.To begin there was not the proper silverware setup which later caused us to ask for additional setting after removable of used items.The manager had served the sides and stated the server did not turn them into the kitchen.the server stated ur side orders which did not arrive until the main course was finished.We had to request the sides.that the sides were comp and also the desert.Upon a further discussion with the manager after paying our bill, and stating our displeasure,he stated her would comp the entire meal.

    Requested a booth and was seated right away. Extremely busy night but food and service were surprisingly good. The dry aged New York strip was phenomenal and the wine list is one of the best I've seen in St. Pete. We were too full to have dessert. We will definitely try them on our next visit.

    I have been to Rococo a number of times now and continue to be impressed. I started the night with a Manhattan made with a couple of different bitters including vanilla infused bitters. It was a great drink and great start to the evening. For dinner I had the NY Strip and they do a great job of creating a nice crust while keeping the temperature at Rare or Medium Rare along with the truffled fries. The meal was great and consistent with my prior visits. I believe this is the top steak house on this side of the bay (St. Petersburg and Clearwater areas).

    We went on a weeknight for a birthday dinner. The restaurant is decorated very nicely with swanky chandeliers, cozy booths and nice artwork. We shared several items and ordered a bottle of wine. Everything was very good to excellent. The dessert was a little disappointing but overall I would recommend this place and certainly come back again. They have a nice patio area which would be fun when it is a little cooler outside. The service was also excellent.

    Had a wonderful experience from the time we were greeted to dessert. We enjoy our bourbon and this is one of the few restaurants that has Pappy Van Winkle. A real treat. Josh was our server, very personable and fit in with our group. A great selection of appetizers, the goat cheese was awesome. The main course and sides were excellent. They put a nice light char on the steaks, just the way it should be, and still cooked to perfection. The sides were great, we had the corn and lobster mac and cheese. We were stuffed so decided against dessert but since we mentioned it was someone's birthday Josh brought a small serving of the peanut butter pie. A nice touch and delicious. We will definitely go back.

    Rococo is visually rich and plush but presents bland and monotone visual appeal. The oysters were a disgrace considering price yet the hamburger was fabulous with its perfect bun to patty ratio and the outstanding tomato-bacon jam barbecue sauce.

    Such a great restaurant with a fantastic decor to match! Grain and corn fed beef, unique side offerings, and exceptional service and attention to detail. We go there for special occasions opposed from just going to Capital Grill, Bern's, etc. because they excel at taking care of their guests without the 'turn and burn' of other places. We recently went to celebrate the 2 year anniversary of our engagement before our wedding in a cole of months. We were treated fantastic from the moment we saw the hostess staff until we walked out the door. Our table waserfe t with rose eagles and a card signed by the staff (nice touch). Joshua did a fantastic job and it was a perfect evening! Well recommended by a foodie!

    The dining room ambience is fabulous for a special occasion meal. Having said that, the meal was just ok for the prices. I really had higher expectations. My husband had the New York strip and I had the Prime Rib which was way over-seasoned. The wait staff was overly attentive to the point of hovering. With the other options available in the downtown area of St Pete, Rococo moves to the middle of my list.

A complimentary birthday dessert and being recognized by the manager made for a very enjoyable experience.

    The ambiance including the outside lanai is outstanding. Both the bar and dining areas are very attractive and not so noisy as to not hear your neighbor at the table. While the apps and entrees where well executed and were all fresh and of high quality, most menu items seemed a bit pricey for the quantity. The tartare app is a mere 1 tbsp of tuna and 1 tbsp of salmon. We were told this should serve 4. Three of us at the table ordered the grass-fed ribeye. The servings seemed to be of inconsistent sizes. Nonetheless, the steak was cooked correctly and to the requested temperature. Again, a bit pricey for the quantity. Service was, however, spotty, especially after a neighboring table filled. Our foodie expectations were not quite met.

    Those who had the grass-fed fillet said it was wonderful. I don't eat meat or fish but was able to put together a salad to begin with plus the red & black quinoa, grilled asparagus and broccolini, all of which were wonderful together. It was actually enough food to take home a doggie bag.

    Rococo has a nice ambience but my prime rib, ordered medium, came rare. It was tough and fatty.The waiter, though attentive, was a bit overbearing and talked too much. The best part was the burger, but for $18 should at least have fries or a side included. The duck salad was good, but very small (Charlie Trotter style) and not worth the money. I think you need to rethink your prices to cater to price-conscious St.Pete and this out-of-the-way location. Also, it was hard to taste the truffle oil on the truffle fries, and honestly, the fries at Derby Lane are more crisp and delicious. I asked the name of the chef and not one person knew his name, not even the manager.

    I had the black and blue halibut and it was cooked perfectly. The blue cheese butter went very well with the cajun spices. We ordered two sides and had plenty to take home. Be prepared, servings are large and you will have plenty of leftovers. We tried the jello shots and they were a very unique dessert. It was a nice finish to a wonderful dinner experience.

    The restaurant is a beauty - inside and out. Rich hues, romantic ambience, classy all the way around. The service is terrific, the drinks are delicious and unique. In terms of the food, we weren't impressed. It's a pricey restaurant, which we expected, however, absolutely everything is a la carte. We ordered the salmon which while fresh, had virtually no flavor other than the fish. It was bland and we had to request salt (which we usually never do). I ordered the ribeye. It was totally charred on every surface, making it difficult to taste the steak in light of the prominent burnt/bitter taste. The Mac n cheese described by server as amazing, was greasy and salty, and fries over cooked. Don't think we'll be heading back.

    Great promise based on reviews, but so many items were not quite right. Salad was soggy and salty; halibut was over cooked; and the desserts were positively leaden. Some of the side dishes were very good and the service was attentive. The offer was made to take dessert off the bill. Such a pretty venue; I hope the kitchen steps up its game. And perhaps one should always choose steak!

    This time we requested a quit table and were placed in the bar area. After giving it a chance, I suggested to the staff this would not work and we were placed in an upstairs dining room. This room was loud as well, but better than the bar. Service was a bit muddled and we were confused as to who was actually waiting on us. Shrimp and oyster starters were great. Wine selection was great, but it took ten minutes to get the cork out of our choice. Wine turned out to be fine. Main course was a ribeye that was average and the Angry Lobster was a waste of money, really thought we were getting a small tail. Not sure what it was. There seemed to be a large number of big parties so maybe we were caught up in the noise, no pun intended.

    Dinner was excellent other than the music was a little loud and not entirely suitable for a romantic dinner. We had to ask the waiter to lower the volume a little. The porterhouse for two was awesome, veggies were nice, fresh and delicious. And... the mac & cheese as well as the purple mashed sweet potatoes were great.

    We found out this location was formerly a YMCA. Wow! The building has been beautifully transformed - very spacious and tastefully appointed. Everything we ordered (wine, tuna and salmon tartar, grass fed filets, asparagus, mac n' cheese, and salted caramel bread pudding) was incredible! We enjoyed a truly slow dining experience, never felt rushed, and service was on point. We will certainly return when in St. Pete.
