While Bistro Roca was highly recommended I found the menu to be lacking in up to date creativity. We ordered several items and all were just mediocre. The calamari frites were blah and the sauce did not complement very well. My caesar salad was once again mediocre and i would highly recommend that they not use the extremely mature leaves ( a bit tough) The salad dressing was lacking in anchovy and garlic flavor as well as creaminess for a caesar. We ordered the black and blue and the concept sounded good however the orchestration and final product was once again lacking The steak was fatty and the plate a bit messy. Liked the atmosphere and the wine list and our waiter. We were ready to leave without seeing the dessert menu.

Hostess accommodated our request to move from a noisy table located in the middle of several large groups to a quieter booth. At 7:30, they had run out of several menu options. Food was good, not exceptional. Service was great.

Our waiter Mark was really helpful and gave great suggestions. Our appetizers were very good and we both loved how they present the salad. They split it half is a Caesar salad and the other half was a house salad with blue cheese and sundried tomatoes. Dinner was the Black and Blue ribeye and the Venison with Bone Marrow Risotto which were both perfectly prepared. We finished with some Cremé Brulee and some vanilla ice cream and a Port wine for dessert. The Sparkle Pony drinks kept coming for my lovely lady and I tried the Port of Agave and the Earthly Creature, they were great. We will be returning anytime we are in time.

We were disappointed to find our reservation for 4 (made a week early) was in a very noisy area. We had to really raise our voices to be heard. There were quieter spots, but we have not been "regulars" so missed out. May or may not return.

It’s a cute place but the food was okay at best. I ordered the black and blue and the food was cold. The blue cheese on top of the steak was not even melting because the food was not warm at all. The potatoes were also cold. I sent it back and they threw the steak back on the grill (now over cooking it) and then brought the same plate back to me with the potatoes still cold. Someone at our table ordered a medium rare burger and received a very well done burger. Those that ordered salads enjoyed their meal but the salad was very small for a dinner portion and the piece of salmon on top looked like they cut the normal portion in half and then served it. The place was cute and our server was great but the food was mediocre at best.

We had a reservation and were seated in a timely manner. Everyone from the hostess to the wait staff were very attentive. Food and drinks were served and spaced well. We live here locally and enjoy coming here very much.
