Bistro Roca and Antlers Bar
Great service. Delicious food! Everything was absolutely perfect
Outstanding experience! My go to place in BR!
Met good friends for lunch. Had a great lunch on the deck with lots of laughs!
We requested a quiet table, and it was much better than last experience here. Appetizers and salad were good, service was superb, ambiance fun. A crying child was our only real complaint but what's a restaurant to do?
Thoroughly enjoyed my NC trout...delicious & nice presentation. Pork chop was great, as well.Our waitress was wonderful. Atmosphere was nice & service was great! Full bar. Definitely hope to come back.
Our server was wonderful. She was so sweet, knowledgeable about the food and great with the kids. I love that the restaurant is green, too! My falafel was delicious. Thanks for a great lunch!
Birthday and anniversary
Amazing Food!!! We started with the coconut tomato soup. Great combination of flavors. Then moved onto the figs wrapped in prosciutto Accompanied with honey and herb oil...outstanding!!! White wine mussels were next, great combination of flavors. Our final dish was a special for the night that was a corvina fish that had an incredible burst of flavor with a corn Velouté. If you go to any restaurant in Blowing Rock, make it a must do.
Would like to see some more entrees like steak, lamb, fish. The lobster Mac and cheese was very disappointing... dry- not creamy- just a few sorta dry pieces of lobster.
Beautiful spot, always consistent with service and quality of food!
our server Steve, or Stevie, was exceptional. Knew the beer menu, brought tastings, was patient and funny. Answered questions about items on menu --even had to go to kitchen to ask. Did not hover, but just right amount of attention. Added to a fun evening.
We always enjoy Saturday afternoon lunch at Bistro Roca. Delicious fresh food, creative combinations, and perfect portion sizes. A pleasant way to spend an afternoon in Blowing Rock.
So disappointed! It took over an hour to get our lunch.
Which was a salad and a sandwich. Poor organization!
It keeps getting worse each visit. Think we are done.
Found a space to park! Seated immediately. Nice waiter. Great Beyond Burgers. Noisy but passable. Uncomfortable chair only complaint.
Food was okay but nothing special. The 1st table we sat at was noisy and too close to the front door and bathroom so we inquired with the server, who wasn’t very friendly and pushed back on us. Once we got moved, the server was much better and noise level good. A comfortable table and atmosphere. Food was good but the portions very small and we were sharing.
Great food and service as always!
Lunch on the back porch was wonderful
Second visit. As good if not better than the fitst.
Never had a bad meal there- been there twice
Sat with our children before 5:30 and our entrees took an hour. Service never came over to give us an update.
Everything I've ever eaten here has been spot on
One of my favorites in Blowing Rock! I keep coming back!!!
Always love atmosphere and the unique menu.
Love the Bistro
The calamari is some of the best I've had. This is one of our "go to" restaurants!
We don't cook with much salt. Unfortunately we found 2 items to be too salty: the mozzarella salad and the mussels. So, other than a heavy salt hand, the food was good. I like the ambiance and vibe. Waiter was knowledgeable, welcoming, engaging but professional.
Parking is tricky here - had to park in the garage down the street but food and environment was excellent!
This has become an annual event for us. We make the trek to Blowing Rock every summer and make sure that we have reservations at Bistro Roca and the Antlers Bar at least once. It has become one of our favorite spots in an area with many many fine restaurants. The atmosphere is definitely upscale "mountain" the food is excellent, staff attentive and helpful and prices are reasonable. I highly recommend it to all!!
Great place to dine, we love going there. Food is AWESOME
Our server was amazing. She was very helpful in helping us order, attentive and kind.
Love this restaurant. One of our favorites in Blowing Rock
In-laws we’re visiting us in Boone. Haven’t been in Boone in decades. Was a wonderful evening.
Our party went for Sunday brunch and everything was so good we made reservations for dinner on Sunday night. The calamari was a HUGE disappointment! Looked ( big square strips) and tasted fake at room temp and the crust was soggy and not attached to the calamari. Very tough and hard to chew and would have complained but a large party was being served by our waitress and already waited a long time. Our dinner was not served hot. It was good but dining experience was distracting with small fussy children nearby. Do consider changing your calamari resource. You eat with your eyes first and that didn’t look or taste right. Will give you another try next time we visit Blowing Rock. We come regularly.
Delicious gluten free choices!
We had a good experience overall, but nothing extraordinary. The French toast is good, as are the biscuits and gravy. We also had the benedict at out table. Nothing amazing, but all good.
Whenever we come to the area, we always eat at Bistro Roca. It has become a tradition for us, and it never lets us down! Great service, food and atmosphere! Always feels like a special occasion!
Everything was fine but it took a long time for dinner to arrive at the table.
Great waitress, wonderful food!
Have been to this restaurant multiple times in the past for a yearly event. Have always felt a bit overpriced with reasonable food, however on most recent occasion was disappointed. I had the lamb entree which I ordered medium rare. When the entree arrived I was stunned at the small size of meat provided for the expense of the dish. There were only 5 strips of lamb provided. Also, 2 of the strips were medium to medium rare, while the other 3 strips were medium to well. Also, the service by the server felt very rushed and she became frustrated having to explain the communal salad dish option vs the separate salad options. Overall not a great experience.
I love the smoked olives and Veggie Burger.
