Very cold evening and sat us next to windows on the covered porch area...there were plenty of open tables away from windows. Should only use those tables as last option, fill in middle areas first . It was so cold and drafty, took away from the otherwise superb experience.

A really great dining experience! I've been for both lunch and dinner previously, but never brunch. Everyone at our table was very happy with what they had to eat.

My husband and I recently had brunch at Bistro Roca. The food and service were both excellent. We will definitely dine here again!

Always have been a fan of bistro, not this time. It was a negative experience from beginning to end. We are sad they have been so inconsistent, because the ambience is great. They need to make some changes and quickly . We got there special steak, which is always delicious. When he came to us this time it was 80% fat, and the server basically ignored the fact that we were unhappy

My husband and I ate here to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary. The restaurant was recommended by our hotel. We made reservations and when we arrived it was very busy but they had saved us a cozy booth near the fireplace. I loved everything about the restaurant but was very disappointed with my entre choice. I told the waitress I was debating on the Lobster Mac and Cheese or the Crab Carbonara with Pork Belly. The waitress highly recommended the Carbonara so I decided to try it. My husband ordered the steak and loved it. The steak was a good size and was delicious. The Carbonara was not what I was expecting for $28. The portion of the pasta was very small with very little pork belly and too much edamame. It definitely would not have filled up my husband and even left me still hungry. It tasted just ok. It was not delicious like I had hoped. We finished with a yummy dessert of a warm pecan brownie. If we ever try this restaurant again I would definitely order something different.

Love the Décor. The waiter was very helpful and checked on us. The food was outstanding.
A very nice evening. The only concerning matter was the lack of parking. My husband had to drop us off and then meet us when a spot opened up.

I always like coming here and like that they pay attention to the notes in the reservation. I always need to request a quieter location because my husband has severe hearing issues. Not every restaurant reads the notes but Roco Bistro always pays attention to it. Both of us ordered flatbread w/salad but different ones. We were both pleased with our choices. Our waiter (listed as Capps H on our receipt) was very attentive, informative and nice.

This review is based on the latter of our 2 consecutive dining experiences. The first was on New Year's Eve for lunch and the service and food was very good. We loved the ambiance so much the first time that we decided to go there again on New Year's Day for lunch. What a disappointment!! The service was absolutely terrible. The hostess was unfriendly and unaccommodating. We were seated on the back porch where it was very chilly. It took over 15 min to order drinks and over 25 min to receive all drinks. Two entree items on the menu were 86'd, as well as 2 children's menu items and the beer my husband ordered. When food finally came out, a black hair accompanied my macerated pickle and it took 10 minutes for ketchup. I could go on and on but I'll stop here. Server was very apologetic but seriously, just close down for New Year's Day!!! Overall, if I could make one point, I felt the staff was very much on the rude side.
