Excellent SteakWe got a Travelzoo voucher for 4 for my son's BD. The steak was outstanding. The grigio I wanted was not available but the substitute was awesome. The people was very pleasant and service was excellent Given it's Mothers' Day, our waiter was forgetful and a little slow. I had to go look for our check but we had spent 3 hours there so I figured he was tired of waiting on us. We can't wait to come back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEnceleent RestaurantGreat Food, Service, Food Prices, Music, everything5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSlow but good foodReservation for 8 p.m. couldn't find reservation. Seated at 8:30. The host that has reservations everything hand written and unorganized. Once seated didn't see a waiter for 20 minutes. Acoustic guitar player very good but between the bar and the guitar player couldn't hear spouse talking at table. These were the negatives. Once we ordered the food service was good. Food was excellent especially the chocolate fondue. Would go back because of the food but expect some disorganization. This is what happens with inexperienced service people. Perhaps for this restaurant some of the older service people with some experience behind them would be best. Bus boy picked up dessert plates and fondue forks and we hadn't been served dessert yet.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Local GemHad reservations on a Tuesday ... got right in ... it was nicely decorated and the server, Zach, was very informative, explained how the certificate worked. He was very informative on the different dishes. Had the braised short ribs and the hubby had the sea bass .... both were very good. All the items we had from salads to artichoke appetizer to creme burlee were spot on good
Will come back to dine again5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMvery niceDisagree with review in the OC Register on Wed. We were there Tues night and thoroughly enjoyed the entire meal. There was no spattering on the rock. Meat mealted in our mouths. We had the 6 oz filet. Everything was delightful and I have already recommended it to friends.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFANTASTIC RESTAURANT!We live in the San Gabriel Valley. This was worth the drive! From the moment we checked in to leaving was AWESOME! We had a voucher from LivingSocial, good way to try out the restaurant. We are going back for our anniversary at the end of the month. Our waitress was Amy and she was AMAZING! The entire staff and owners were all very nice & accommodating. Nice restaurant for family special occasions, romantic etc.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, lava rock was HOT!Had a Travelzoo special for this restaurant. It was wonderful! Our waiter was knowledgable, fun, great suggestions and gave us all we needed to know to make our dining experience wonderful.
The risotto was delicious, my steak came out on the lava rock, which was very got and I was able to continue to cook my filet to perfection. It tasted great. My husband had the Comean bass which he said was wonderful, but he would have liked it to be a little bigger. I thought his Mac n cheese side was fabulous and my asparagus was delicious. Oh yeah, the waiter brought out sauce to go with both of our dishes which really complemented each of them really well.
I would definitely recommend and would return if/when in that area again.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique!The hot stone was a first for me. I actually used it to keep my truffled fries warm after the awesome filet mysteriously disappeared! Very friendly staff!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA Fabulous Evening!A friend and I celebrated her birthday last night at the RokPrime and were extremely happy with the experience from start to finish. The staff went overboard to wish my friend a happy birthday and the service throughout the evening was superb. The filet melted in my mouth and the wedge salad was by far the best I have ever had. We will both be returning soon and plan to spread the word about our positive experience at this restaurant to others!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT FOODIf you order a steak be sure to have it come on the Lava Rock and more on the rare side. This way you can slice off the pieces and grill them as you eat them. Very interesting and fun. The kids menu is VERY reasonable and they have lunch for under $10 for a complete meal.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service. The band wasGreat Service. The band was good and not overwhelming. The historic building is beautiful and well maintained with stylish accents and decor. Be sure to make reservations at this restaurant on the weekends. Nice birthday dinner with card and a complimentary dessert!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI have group of 26 w/ TravelzooI have group of 26 w/ Travelzoo vouchers (4 courses meal) (2 vouchers per tables or 8 ppl).. Hostess very nice and work hard to put us all together in one area. Our waitress, Ashley was great and patient with us.. She make sure we get what we needed. Foods are great especially the salads and sea bass. Steaks is a little salty and dry.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMHot Rock!You definitely need a reservation because this place gets busy. It's nice and cozy with a romantic feel. The hot lava rock for your steak is fabulous - so get your meat medium because it will cook fast! The live guitar player is wonderful and made the evening great. He plays jazz but can take request if he has the background music for it. Overall, will definitely go again!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff was great and theThe staff was great and the food was very good. As our first time there we opted to go with the filet mignon on the stone. The partially cooked filets came on a separate plates for each of us that contained a hot stone. In the divided areas of these plates contained the side dishes. There was no separate dinner plate to move the meat. Basically had to move it to the bread dish otherwise the filet would have continued cooking on the stone. It would have been better if there was one stone in the middle the two of us to cook our filets and then we could have moved them on a regular plate in front of us. We decided that if we came back we would opt out of having the stone and just have our completed meals brought to the table.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMRyan was a great waiter ...Ryan was a great waiter ... and the manager also was very attentive.

The service was exceptional and the food was first rate. We have nothing bad to say.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steaksFood and service were excellent. We had the petite filet, roasted corn, white cheddar mac and cheese, chocolate fondue. The only thing we probably would not order next time would be the mac and cheese. It was good, not great.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ValueThis was our 2nd visit to RokPrime. Before I go any further, this USED to be Simply Fondue and several of the reviews on this site is for that restaurant. We had a Travelzoo voucher which was for a specific menu. I had the Strawberry and Spinach Salad. EXCELLENT and huge!! My husband had the soup of the day, Cream of Asparagus. We ordered the Onion Rings as our appetizer. We each and the 6 oz Filet as our entree, served on the "Rok". It was very good. I had a side of Mac & Cheese and my husband had the Grilled Asparagus. For dessert we shared the Creme Brulee. Overall the restaurant has a very intimate feeling and is decorated in an "old world" style. We will definitely return!!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMService was great! Food wasService was great!

Excellent food, unique preparation, good music, ambiance and great service. The menu was a little pricey, but the food is worth it! We would go back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyable experienceVery enjoyable experience - staff is engaging and attentive. Our party of 4 started with truffle fries (sinful), filet bruschetta (could be an entree!) and enjoyed the house salad, tomato bisque and bone in rib-eye. Excellent!!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMSurf & Turf Spectacular!We tried this restaurant out through a Living Social Deal. My husband ordered the Chilean Sea Bass and said it was the best he had ever had. I ordered the petite filet that came on the hot rock. It was wonderful as well. The truffle fries were amazing and the butter cake for dessert was out of this world. Great service from the bar to our dinner table. My only complaint would be that the booths are very sunken in so low that the table tops seem high in comparison. Not a big deal for a tall person but for us shorties, you sometimes feel like you need a booster seat! Would definitely return in spite of the funky booths!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMJust an outstanding experience.Just an outstanding experience. From the outstanding food to the great service, we will be back.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time and serviceWe had a great time and service was the best! We had company in town and celebrated St Patrick's Day so came for lunch! Then enjoyed it do much, came back for dinner! We will be back to our local spot in town for the whole experience very soon!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time at RokWe had a great time at Rok Prime. The service was terrific, vibe was fun, and drinks were stiff. There is lots of space between tables which I like, and the live guitarist was a nice touch. The food isn't quite up to the high bar the rest of the experience set; it's perfectly edible, just not anything special, even though the volcanic stones are cool. Overall, Rok Prime is a nice addition to the SJC restaurant scene.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMService was outstanding andService was outstanding and the 4 course dinner we had was prepared to perfection!

The food was very good, but the uniqueness of the hot stone to keep the food hot was the best idea. We enjoyed out meal very much and will return.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMTop notchFabulous food, great service and a wonderful solo guitarist during dinner. Highly recommend.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff was warm and inviting.The staff was warm and inviting. We had a cozy, private table. Our waitress offered suggestions. The filet was tender. The salad was fresh and the dressing delicious. My only suggestion would be to warm diners about the heat of the meat if you choose the table side rok. I didn't give it z thought and it was extremely warm.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMEveryone very friendly & helpful;Everyone very friendly & helpful; really nice atmosphere. Tomato & avocado salad excellent. Very good risotto cake appetizer, sides of corn, asparagus, Brussels sprouts & the rolls. New York strip steak full of gristle. Will probably return, but not soon, & will order different entree.1/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
