Great atmosphere to enjoy, I find prices a bit high for what your getting. Tacos and fajitas were good but I wont say great. The biggest disappointment was the one hot sauce option from a commercial supplier and there was no selection just here you go. Would of like to seen some options of hot sauce flavors or even an in-house selection would have been great. But overall I will come back and recommend.

I have not been in the city most of the summer but as soon as I got back I was craving tacos!! I ordered the chicken tacos with tortilla soup my all time favourite for sure. The bartender made me the new Caesar it is a Smokey jar of flavour! It was so good. La Roca I have sure missed you....the food, drinks, decor and especially the friendly staff.

Great place for a mid-week lunch with a friend. Tried the yucca croquets and they were great. Would highly recommend this place.

We were seated on time at 8:00, but then promptly informed that our reservation would be over at 9:45 when another party had reserved our table. (There were numerous other empty tables available for the whole duration of our visit.) Food was mediocre at best, glasses sat empty for much of the time, as the servers were not overly attentive. At about 9:15 another server came over and started moving our things off of the extra chair at our table to adjoin another table with ours (we were still seated at this time) for the next reservation. Pretty tacky.

It was a little quiet in the restaurant as it was a Wednesday and not so busy. Parking was a little difficult, construction in the area.

Had a meeting after work. Love that the location is close to downtown and always has great food and service. They also have a great Happy Hour which is great for after work socializing.

We didn't realize this place turns into a full blown dance club at 10pm on Saturdays so I think the waitresses were all busy getting prepped for that change over during our visit. Service was meh. Food was meh. Drinks were meh. Everything felt a little bland. It was fine though. Cool space and nice venue. Wouldn't go out of my way to go again. We had tacos (shrimp and fish) and they were kind of flavourless. The best part was the side dishes! The esquites and the refried beans were really good.

We arrived at 5:45 for a 6pm reservation and ordered martinis - they were very good. We were warned off the patio due to an infestation of wasps. There was almost no one in the restaurant aside from staff. Our server was very courteous and helpful. The complimentary salsa and chips were minuscule and dull. I ordered the beef fajita, my colleague ordered some sore of chimichanga - he didn't finish. The steak fajita was cooked to order and tasty, with plenty of soft tortillas, cheese, sour creme, and a mound of rice (boring). The portions were actually too large. The meal lasted an hour and a half and the restaurant was basically empty, not a good sign. It isn't any better than Carlos and Murphy's, with pretty much the standard TexMex offerings, which was somewhat disappointing.

Staff was super friendly, security was great despite some disputes. But the place was super crowded, lil too many people. Also manager that night handled the situations respectfully. Food was decent for the dollar spent.

Food and service were good, the only thing I didn’t like was the in house refried beans. Little on the thin runny side.

Our party of six was seated on the upper outdoor patio, was very nice and the traffic noise was hardly noticeable. The patio areas are very nice and large, we left before dark but I think it would have been really nice with all the lights and decorations. Our meals were all very good, tasty and substantial serving sizes. The only complaint would be that the taco shells should have been warmed , they were not which made them seem doughy . They should have been prepared the same as the fajita plate.

It was a very pleasant way to celebrate my birthday. The server was there when needed but not hovering.
We only wished we were 20 years younger to stay for the" night club".
The food was good in quality and quantity.
We plan to return.

The only reason I didn’t give five stars is because the hostess told us we couldn’t sit on the rooftop patio because it was reserved for a party. Meanwhile, we watched them seat people up there while we were sitting in the regular patio. I was also told we couldn’t reserve those spots in advance, so needless to say I was turned off by that whole situation. Our waitress was great, the food was great, music was great, hostess was not so great.

Great food, drink, and overall service. Will definitely be coming back again in the very near future.

Never would have thought it would be that good based on what the restaurant looks like from the outside, but as they say looks can be deceiving. Our new favorite Mexican restaurant.

Don't change things and keep up the great work.

La Roca is one of my favourite spots for a date. Went the other night and not only were the carnitas sliders amazing, but so were the drinks and service. Can't wait to come back and try out their new menu!

LOVE the patio space, we were seated on the lower patio and the space feels wonderful. We enjoy La Roca all year but especially on a hot summer night. Service and food were great as per usual, we will be back.

My wife and I had a nice evening with another couple visiting La Roca. I felt it was a bit on the pricey side and the food was good - but nothing that totally amazed me. Kim our server was excellent and very attentive. We were also asked a few times during the night by a manager and another server. The decor was very nice but because of the open ceilings it was very loud even at only half full. I would go again but not often as I felt the prices over exceeded the overall quality of the food. Again the food was good but not “wow”.
