I was blown away by the food at Bistro Roca. Amazing appetizers, entrees and cocktails along with great customer service. My wife got the Trout and I had the Black & Bleu steak. One of the best steaks I ever had in my life! If you are visiting Blowing Rock this place is a MUST.

Four of us dined at Bistro Roca and Antlers Bar. We had figs wrapped in prosciutto as a shared appetizer and should have ordered more. They were delicious. Two of us had the Mountain Trout and two of us had the Black and Bleu. Both courses were excellent and the steak was wonderfully tender. Our server was attentive and humorous. My only observation is that parking is quite cramped so allow some additional time for that but overall a five star experience.

I have eaten here multiple times but this time the food was different and disappointing. We ordered the margarita pizza and it was loaded with pesto. The crust was soggy. It just seemed that the chef tried too hard to be fancy but simpler would have been better!

Great dinner spot in Blowing Rock. Back room is a little cold, especially if you're seated by the door - it doesn't close well unless you lean over and push it closed EVERY TIME someone goes out. Food is very good.

We were so disappointed in Bisteo Roca. For years this has been one of our favorite restaurants in Blowing Rock. The Black and Bleu which was a ribeye for years on the menu is now an inferior cut of meet. So disappointed.

We had had such good experience on a visit 2 years ago we were eager to return, this time bringing friends. They are foodies and the whole experience received top marks from them too. The fig appetizer is as delicious as we remembered- the mussels, Mac and cheese, and lettuce wraps were outstanding. Lovely fire, attentive servers all added to experience. Love the bar dog photos and even you philanthropic approach to the community. We will be regulars on each trip to BR.

Absolutely our favorite restaurant when visiting Blowing Rock...always pleased with both food & service. I had the Cuban crepe & was new for me but delicious. My husband had the filet of beef but also loves the burger sometimes. So one can see has a wide range of selections for any appetite. Also, a great place to take visitors for first visit to Blowing Rock to make sure everyone is pleased & happy. KatB, GSO, NC

We have frequented Bistr Roca occasionally during our 5 month stay during the summer and once in a while during our winter visits. Our last visit we were extremely satisfied with the food, food service, etc. our lone criticism was that our initial interview with our server was somewhat delayed.

The food in the service were excellent. I had a really good time hanging out with my family. When the food came it was as requested and was prepared exquisitely . Also the lobster mac & cheese was to die for.

We sat on the screened in porch, great temperature. Had the veggie spring rolls and prosciutto wrapped figs for apps. Entrees were fish of the day (swordfish) pizza of the day (jerk chicken.) All very tasty. Good wines by the glass. $100 for 2. Pricey for the area but worth it for the ambience.

Bistro Roca never disappoints. The food is always delicious, I look forward to seeing what the nightly special dish will be. It's always creative. The service is outstanding and the ambiance is always delightful in that cozy mountain lodge feel. We highly recommend this restaurant and Antlers Bar.
