The food was very fresh and delicious. We were not rushed. The waiter checked with us so that each course was freshly prepared and hot.

The food was excellent, and our service that night with Roy (the bar manager) was excellent. They were a bit slow, like most restaurants these days, but we were happy to support a local restaurant.

Our first time there, the food was great, wine list was "ok", hard to say what the ambiance is/was being that it was in large part empty. I can imagine if this place is full it has a different feel to it.

While it was maybe not as "modern" as some of the other new places, the open kitchen was cool, they had a piano player playing music all night and overall the food and service was very good.

So is it a "must visit" for me, no probably not...but I also don't think you can go wrong here if you want a nice dinner and something that isn't a chain or isn't in the hub of tourist stuff. You can tell almost everyone in there was local, so that's a good sign the food is always good. And the chef came by and said hi which was a nice personal touch also.

I would recommend if you've never tried...

Came here for NYE dinner. We are always going out to eat and trying new places and I was not very impressed. Food did not taste fresh and was a bit overpriced. Waiter and staff were all super nice and had an overall great experience, but the food was just average.

Two hours on a night with a few tables taken. Service was extremely slow no idea why. I think the waiter was new but was so quiet wouldn’t expect the long delays. On the upside food was very good.

You cannot go wrong at Chef Rolf's New Florida Kitchen. Our appetizers and entrees were superb, and the service was wonderful. I had the Grouper and my sister had a 1/2 Maine lobster stuffed with Rolf's mac and cheese, and an 8 oz NY strip steak. Portions were huge, and dessert and coffee was delicious. We will be back.

Excellent service, their computers crashed briefly, this slowed service somewhat, but it was handled very professionally. The food was out of this world and well worth any delay in service. The staff was very courteous and attentive.

We reserved any early time for dinner and it was very quiet. Service was excellent. The Prime Rib was perfect. Great value on Thursday evening. Cocktail perfect also. We will go back.

Few restaurant Chef's give diners the personal attention you get from Chef Rolf. Outstanding food, live music (even on a Tuesday night), pleasant staff and an evening with no issues.

Absolutely delightful! If you are looking for a great Sunday brunch, look no further! I took my mom there for her birthday and she had all you can eat pancakes that came with potatoes, fruit and eggs. AND... champagne which is her favorite! Fabulous brunch and they have a talented pianist playing. In fact, the pianist played happy birthday for my mom. Other people sang and it was more than I could have imagined. The wait staff came with a dessert and a candle for my mom to blow out. Very, very nice. Thank you to Rolf's for making the day so special for my mom.

The service was slow and not very attentive.
We sat next to the kitchen and could smell every piece on schnitzel they cooked. Crazy poor ventilation system.
The food was delicious.
We would try again but sit further from the kitchen.

Went there for the Octoberfest and had a fantastic wiener schnitzel. Love the piano player which makes it a great date place. My wife had the end cut prime rib, very tasty and done right.

Chef Rolf’s was absolutely delicious. His gumbo is the best I‘ve ever had. Very friendly atmosphere and a beautiful restaurant. We had crusted salmon and prime ribs that were outstanding. I double highly recommend it and can’t wait to go back.

We enjoyed the early bird specials, with two exceptions. I had the Gazpacho Soup which was very spicy and the early bird chardonnay and Pino Greigo were not to my liking. Overall, very pleased with the early bird special.

The restaurant was short staffed, due to covid I’m sure, so I’ll give them as pass on that, but the food was mediocre. Shrimp appetizer seemed to have freezer burn (certainly was not made from scratch) and the soup came out with the meal. Nothing tasted bad, but nothing was fantastic either. Probably would not try it again.
