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!

    Introduced a family member to my new favorite restaurant and was pleasantly surprised by the new daily specials. I had the chef's selection salad and the seafood special. Both were excellent! The chocolate peanut butter pie was heavenly. I highly recommend Rococo and I can't wait to go back.

    This is the third time I have eaten at Rococo Steak and the first on a weekend night. It was busy but food and service were still excellent. Prime rib is the best I've had in a very long time.

    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.

    Staff and service were great. Grass-fed steaks were undercooked to what we ordered but still very good. A friend had mentioned he had heard the steaks were heavily seasoned (mostly fancy salt) and he was right. So if you don't like your steak seasoned make sure you mention when ordering. Not impressed by the mac & cheese side but salads and other veggies were good. Great glass of chianti to go with dinner. We sat near the bar area which was definitely a nice retreat and gave us a view of the restaurant without being in the middle of things. We passed on the dessert menu but was curious to see what they had since it wasn't posted online. Overall would probably try again.

    Had dinner here Saturday night for the first time. The meal was excellent as was the service. Only two small negatives, which will not stop me from returning. Delivery of entrees were just slightly slow...we were just beginning to feel like we had been waiting a long time when they came out. Food was hot, so it seems like the kitchen was a little slow and not a delay with delivery to the table. The bacon flight appetizer is awesome as is the bread. We were in a small extension by the windows of the dining room and it was loud, partially due to a party of six celebrating a birthday seated next to us and partially due to the nature of the space. I look forward to going later in the year to enjoy their outdoor dining space.

    Our server was polite but, listening to another server she was much more informative. Being that it was our first time there he really didn't explain much of the menu. The grass fed steak was ummmmm.....tender. The mac, lobster and cheese needed seasoning....salad was okay...and our appetizer of salmon, tuna and wonton crisps were alright.

    Extremely poor service from a rude, pretentious waiter. If you're looking for friendly, welcoming service, I suggest you look elsewhere. If you're looking for service where they toss your plates on the table, argue with you about your meal selections and waiters who ignore you while smoking their ecigarettes by the stairway, this is the place for you. Food was ok--- menu selection was pretty good.

    Absolutely perfect from beginning to end. Fantastic food, UNBELIEVABLE service, wonderful attention to detail. It was a WIN all the way around. We will be back many, many times. Bone in Filet was perfect. Ready to book our special event dinners and parties at this new find. We drove from Palm Harbor and would GLADLY drive back. SO happy to finally have a TRUE fine dining available again.

    Dined on 7/16/2014
    My boyfriend and I were out for drinks for my birthday with no dinner plans. Made a reservation, no problem, and were seated at a really nice corner booth. We ordered drinks, and loved them both. Ordered the bacon flight for an app - you MUST order this if you are a bacon lover. Absolutely amazing. He got the prime rib and I got the grass-fed filet. Both steaks were cooked perfectly, seasoned well and my filet had a really nice crust on it while still being juicy inside. I love the option to order grass-fed vs. corn-fed and it was only $2 more. Only complaint was the mac and cheese- good but way under-salted/seasoned. It's a bit pricey, as expected from a really nice steakhouse. Great food, excellent service, we will be going back.

    I had my doubts when we first arrived as the valet had vanished for about 15 minutes, and then they were running about 40 minutes behind even with reservations. However, the service was excellent and the staff made all the appropriate apologies, including glasses of wine on them. Once seated the wait staff was exceptional from recommendations to knowing when to approach and when not to. Food was exceptional and paired very well with the wine recommendations.

    My wife was celebrating her birthday last weekend. She had seen Rococo while driving near Tropicana Field. Parked our car with the valet - very quick and courteous. Arrived, they quickly located our reservation and we were seated in the upstairs dining room. Took the elevator, which had moving cloths on the walls, to second floor. They have an extensive wine list, but none of us drink wine. Beer selection was moderate. Served cold with a glass. Their steak selection was awesome with both grain fed and corn fed beef. Well prepared steaks. However, everything is ala carte. We ordered mashed potatoes and another side that were great to share. The big downside was the bill at the end, over $330! A very large amount for good steaks.

    Took my wife for her birthday, and were totally blown away by everything from the food to the decor to the attentive staff. Our waiter made us feel right at home, and let us leisurely peruse your fantastic menu without feeling rushed at all. He was very knowledgeable about the menu, and very personable. We felt like we were in a friend's house for dinner. The staff and the chefs went the extra mile to make my wife's birthday special! They put a candle in her dessert, and then took the extra effort to write in script "Happy Birthday" in chocolate on her dessert plate. That was the nicest touch I've seen from any restaurant.

    I wanted to give the review a five start rating, but we had one small incident when we arrived. They seemed to not have our Open Table reservation (later, I was able to find the reservation), but they went ahead and seated us at the only available table, which happened to be in the bar area. My husband and I were celebrating our 31st wedding anniversary. I originally requested a booth table in the dining area, wanting to have a romantic dinner. The bar table had a direct view of the television, which was not ideal for a romantic dinner. However, the evening was saved by our excellent waiter, Joshua. He was attentive, informative, and just simply wonderful! Thanks to Joshua, we had a great dinner!

    My hubby and I wanted to try something new since we've pretty much been to all the steakhouses in Tampa. When we read about Rococo Steak, I knew we had to try it because they offered grass fed steak! The restaurant is fairly new and we were very impressed. From the service (Joshua was excellent!) to the food (it is very rare that we go out and EVERYTHING we had was awesome!), we were beyond pleased. My hubby had the snapper and I had the grass fed filet. We also had the fried chicken lollipops, brocollini, sweet mashed potatoes and the mac and cheese...everything was impeccable! We will definitely be going back!

    I'll start by saying that the manager tried to make up for some of this disaster by offering a tray of deserts and removing the charge for an incorrectly cooked steak from one of my quests bill BUT The place is very large. There were 5 of us and 1 arrived later than the other 4. One of 3 on the door simply pointed to him and said they're up stairs-did not walk him to the table or even indicate where upstairs we had been seated. Then the waiter from HELL-he was argumentative and my guests were embarrassed for me-he thought he was being cute we did not! It went down hill from there. Three hours to dine due to a HUGE gap before the entrees arrived. No one enjoyed their meal. The food was tasteless. We hope they improve but we'll never return.

    We were impressed when we arrived and three people opened the door for us. We had an 8:00 reservation but there were only tables available outside. Had some delicious drinks at the bar and about one hour later we checked on our table and discovered we were forgotten. When we were seated our server was clearly well-versed. Ordered Goat Cheese Pie which was yummy the second time..first one was burnt. Our Filet and Bone-in Rib Eye looked proper temperature but both cuts were dry. Mac and cheese was yummy with truffles and the wine was good. We will try it one more time but will sit at the bar which seems like what most people do. Maybe just an off night and everyone deserves a second chance. When making a reservation specify inside or out.

    This was our first time to Rococo Steak. When we arrived we were automatically seated out, we were not asked if we wanted inside or outside. Once seated there was a nice breeze but halfway through dinner the breeze stopped, humidity went up and we were both sweating and uncomfortable. We could not finish and get out check fast enough. Had I been asked, we would have requested inside. Overall, we felt the entries were overpriced and over salted. Charley's Steakhouse and Capital Grill are much better. Cannot say that we would revisit this restaurant.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Rococo. The steaks were as good as any i've has at other high quality steakhouses and the side dishes were delicious. After reading other reviews of the bacon flight, we couldn't resist ordering it and it did not disappoint! i will warn however against trying to eat the whole thing and then a steak! Some other reviewers commented on the price, but i did not find the prices to be out of line with what i would expect from a high end steak house. The service was excellent and the setting inside was great. it was raining the night we dined, so we missed out on the outdoor seating, but would certainly try it out on a night with better weather. i will definitely dine here again.

    We had read some nice reviews on the restaurant and always enjoy steakhouses that are unique and not the chain variety. More impressive than the steaks (only complaint was all were ordered medium and came out medium rare) - were the sides. There was such a variety from the truffle oil fries to the Okinawa potato - that it was hard to select one (we didn't). Goat cheese pie was A+. We left at 10PM and seemed to be the last ones in - keep that in mind. Will return.

    My husband, and friend and I decided to celebrate Friday at Rococo Steak. Wow! Elegant terrace dining. Coldwater oysters just flown in from Boston, stuffed wedge salad, and a luscious 40 oz Porterhouse. And oh that "cornbread"! Room temp butter a much appreciated touch. Wonderful wines. Did I mention the desserts? Pot au chocolat, which we combined with the grilled lemon cake, was pretty special. The only minus was over-eager waiters (in the multiples). Maybe they just wanted to see someone really enjoying dinner.

    This was my first time at Rococo and I really enjoyed it. The food and service were excellent! I had the grass-fed filet mignon with the creamed corn. I am not usually a creamed corn fan but it was really good. The lobster bisque was not the conventional type but I thought it was every bit as good as what I usually expect with this dish. I also really enjoyed the goat cheese pie as an appetitizer. Will look forward to my next visit!

    First of all the food is fantastic. Yes, it is pricey but that was known ahead of time. The restaurant eliminated some entrees I had seen on previous menus such as boar, antelope. Would like to find a place that offers some off the wall entrees? The staff was very attentive, a little too much. When idle I think they should be out of my line of sight or standing so close. It can get very noisy as the bar is across the entranceway and not closed off by a wall. Our first choice for a bottle of wine was not available and it took awhile for us to find out. Wine finally served after the appetizer. Not impressive. Again, the food was fantastic and bread pudding dessert was divine. For steak lovers, a good place!
