This was my first time at Rockridge A16. The crab salad was great (but small). The pizza (funghi + sausage pizza w/ egg) was good (and very large, definitely enough to share between two people if you're not super hungry), but slightly too burned and I wish the crust was a little crispier on the bottom. The taste was solid. The interior is nice, but it does get quite noisy when it's a full house!

We were there at 6:00 on Valentine's Day and it was not what we expected:
We did not know it was a going to be prix fixe menu with the inability to choose what we wanted -- just wish we had been told about this before.
The price was not listed on the menu, but our fault for not asking. When we received the bill, it was about $300 for dinner, 2 cocktails, tax and tip.
It was way too much food -- ended up taking much more home than we were able to eat.
My boyfriend is a vegetarian, and the only main course was beef (very good, BTW), and he was not able to have a couple of the starters/pasta. (They did accommodate him with an entree veggie dish.)
The service was incredibly slow and uneven -- took over 3 1/2 hours! Don't think it was our waiter's fault. Many people seemed to be looking around for their food, so maybe it was the timing of the kitchen? There was also a huge line waiting to come in, I assume because dinner was taking so long .
The good news is, the food was excellent! Everything we had was great.
I love A16 and their menu, and look forward to returning, but this was not the experience we had hoped for, even though the food was delicious.
Thank you.

Was not impressed. Had a reservation for 9pm. Arrived at 9, but was told we would have to wait. Did so until 930. Was finally seated, and then there was a delay with the food. When it did arrive, it was fair, it was certainly not worth the $98 that was charged.

Word to the wise - order the pizza. It appeared to be the most delicious item, but was not part for the entree course, unless you claimed dietary restrictions.

The food was very great!
But despite our reservation , we waited 45 mins at the door.
When seated, we still waited around 30mins each in between appetizers, main dish, second main dish.

We appreciate a super delicious meal and are willing to pay for it, but this was very expensive and just okay. It was Valentine’s Day, so extra expensive and crowded I assume. We paid about $350 for two including the tip and wine (my husband did the pairing and I had two glasses). I probably wouldn’t go back.

Absolute train wreck of a Valentine’s Day meal. We were seated 50 minutes late and we received our first dish of a 4 course set menu 1 hr 45 minutes from our reservation time. We got the rest of the courses to go. We paid the full set meal price but were definitely ripped off. It’s a shame because we have gone many times - a16 has a couple great pizzas. No pizza on Valentine’s Day. The food wound up being mixed. Parts were flavorful and other dishes were very bland and uninteresting. Very disappointing. In fairness we have had good meals at a16 but this occasion was so poorly managed it was almost inexcusable.

Food was good but not the service on this prix fixe valentine's evening. Too long between courses, delivery of wine pairing too early/late for courses. Total meal time was 3 hours - too long for me for a weeknight!

Food was cafeteria quality mass produced with poor ingredients. Suggesting wine pairing was terrible. Very disappointed. Will not return.

We came to A16 for the prix fixe Valentine's Day dinner. The food was wonderfully prepared. Highlights included the beef with kale and potatoes au gratin, the crab salad, burrata, and desserts. There was one dish that was a tad spicy, but overall excellent food.

It was a full house and thus the service between some dishes was very slow, i.e. 20 to 30 minutes. We arrived at 5:30 pm and left at 8:15 pm. Just a bit too long, even for a special occasion.

This was our second time going. The food was delicious! We had a new waitress that wasn’t very attentive or friendly this time. The rest of the staff was friendly and welcoming. Love the ambiance!

Sat at the Chef's counter and, as usual, enjoyed watching the chefs at work. Started with the fried cauliflower, which was good starter and worked well with the Rose Champagne. Then on to the burrata (tasty, although some tough skin), lemon recotta gnocchi with cipollini (very tender), and the citrus salad (lovely way to end). The carafe of Cannanou recommended by our server was a very good match.
