A word from Rokerij
Grilled steaks and chops cooked over pecan wood fires, fresh fish, daily blackboard specials, small plate appetizers and an extensive wine by the glass selection. Dimly lit with eclectic music, sit at the upstairs bar and watch your food being prepared, dine in our over-sized booths or make your way downstairs and hang at the cellar bar. The Rokerij is truly a feast for your senses. Reservations are for parties of four or more.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Wonderful food and wine. Great decor but horrible noise level from both the overhead "canned"music and loud surrounding tables where 7 people were crowded into what should have been a 4-5 top. Oh well they did turn down the music and the bar finally quieted down so we adapted. Food was great as usual."

  • "Menu says, "6 oz. beef tenderloin pan seared, served on toast with three peppercorn sauce." I got a soup bowl of pepper water, a soggy piece or bread, and a decent steak topped with a burnt onion ring. This followed a house salad that consisted of barely dressed mixed greens from a bag. I spoke to the manager who confirmed that the dish was properly prepared and that customers love the tasteless, formless "sauce" with the soggy bread. So much liquid in the bowl, by the way, that the server nearly sloshed it all over me when she served it. Only good thing was that the manager removed the item from our bill. Our fourth visit: 1st two times we loved it; 3rd was questionable; 4th was the end. Very Disappointing."

  • "I have out-of-town guests and always like them to experience the wonderful food and service at the Rokerij. I was craving my favorite Carne Adovada (pork roast dish), however I usually replace the rice and beans with some of their fresh seasonal vegetables. Not this time! Apparently the kitchen can't handle changing out sides (as of a couple months ago). So had to completely switch gears and figure out a new direction very quickly as rice & beans are not my friends. As expected the meal was delightful but still craving my Carne!!"

  • "Very cool space, nice menu, lot's of options for great food. The subterranean bar is very nice, with a fireplace and interesting bar area. My only complaint about the bar and dining experience has to do with the service. Three people behind the bar, not really paying attention to customers seated there, I and several people around me sat with empty glasses and had to flag down one of the bartenders who then went on taking care of orders from servers for literally several minutes before pouring a beer for us"

  • "Richardson's and Rokerij are always at the top of my list. The ambiance is amazing and the food is second to none. Twice a month if not more!"

  • "Can't go wrong here. Cool outside area between it and Richardson's. Food unbelievably good every time. Good wines. Just small. Which is good and bad. Feels cramped, but have never had trouble getting a table. Brunch is awesome. Staff aren't amazing, but do okay. A go-to restaurant for sure."

  • "I had just had foot surgery and needed a corner booth at fireplace so I could rest foot on my knee walker-was accommodated- we were 5 dining. As usual the ambiance is lovely and the food and service are consistently very good :)"

  • "The service was exceptional and the food, really delicious. Lots of specials on the menu. Surprised at the allowance of dogs in the restaurant, but perhaps the dog was a service animal. At around 6:00, they dimmed the lights to the point where you could hardly see......really too dark for our taste. Had to use our phone flashlight to read the bill. Overall, everything else was great.............."

  • "The food and ambiance were fantastic, however, we made a single reservation for our party and were extremely disappointed when we arrived and were seated at two separate tables. The original reservation was made online and a follow up call was made to confirm and at no time was it mentioned that there was a possibility that our group might be separated. We booked the dinner as a team building event and separate tables were a huge inconvenience for this purpose."

  • "Not your normal restaurant. You'll experience very unique dishes excellently prepared with south of the border influence. I love the rokerij oysters and the bacon wrapped shrimp oysters. My personal favorite is the chi mayo chicken. Definitely ask the waiter about how spicy or hot dishes are as some do have more kick than others."

  • "We chose this restaurant to get together for Christmas Eve. I'd had brunch here once before and was pleased to get sat by the cozy fire again for this visit. Rokerij is comfortable, the music is played at an enjoyable level, loud enough to here, and soft enough to carry on a conversation with my tablemates. The food is unique and exceptional. I look forward to our next visit and to share this gem with more friends."

  • "One of the best things about Rokerij is the ability of the staff to adjust to what ever kind of service you want. My family and I went here for our annual Christmas dinner during the mad shopping season. We wanted a casual service and not so formal service and the waitress did not disappoint. The food is excellent, the wine list is good and the decor gives it a homey feeling. We have been here before many times and will continue to come. One of the best in Phoenix for great food and casual dining."

  • "This was our third and possibly best meal at the Rokerij. The server was energetic and knowledgeable about all the dishes and specials. The flavored were incredible wit just the right amount of heat. While I personally enjoyed the music that was playing playing, our table was right beneath one of the speakers and the volume made conversation tough."

  • "Great place, good food, and mood is just right. Would have been 5 stars but the waitress got one of the orders wrong."

  • "We have been coming to Rokerij for a long time and the menu, service, and sitting has never disappointed us. We brought two couples with us and they have already returned with other friends. I have never been disappointed when we take a group or come alone. When we come as a couple we love sitting at the bar and watching the food being cooked. Thank you for doing a superb job."
