we sat outside on the patio. practically had to beg to have drinks refilled. order was wrong, but ended up eating it anyway since our waiter was totally MIA and it was our lunch hour, so we didn't have time to wait to fix the order. the food was good for the most part - but the whole experience left a bad taste in our mouths. definitely not worth the hefty price tag.

Food came out lukewarm even after supposed reheating.

Bland and not very “Asian” for Asian chicken salad.

Not likely to go back any time soon.

Server Cami (spelling?) was excellent.

Nice overall setting. Great food and pretty good service. However, there was a little too much noise (conversation and yelling) from the other dining guests. People need to have respect for their fellow humans and speak in a lower volume levels or shut up altogether.

We have usually eat at Red Rocks Cafe in Birkdale Village and always is Fantastic!!!!! We went to South Park Mall shopping for Valentine's Day and had Reservation at the Red Rocks Cafe in South Park since we've never been to this location. We had 8:15 Reservations, apparently they could not follow our seating instruction and they bounced us from table to table for about 40 minutes until they got it right. Our server was very friendly, but asked us if we wanted another two more martini's never asking how we like them, (kettle One with Blue Cheese stuffed Olives) that's not what he brought to the table... first clue pimento stuffed olives, and definitely not Kettle One even though he tried very hard to convince us it was, from there his service went down hill with him. Also we when we went home and I realized he didn't return my credit card. (to busy trying to salvage our Valentine's night) I had to call the next day, which they had my card, so a road trip all the way to south Charlotte to retrieve my card from Lake Norman. Not even a we are sorry for your inconvenience from the girl at the front. The whole night was a miss from the minute we walked in, but the food is always Great.

Food quality was extremely disappointing. It was inexpensive but also not enjoyable. Way overcooked. We ate at the bar and the bartenders were great. They made up for the disappointing food but as a restaurant, I wouldn’t recommend.

The menu selection is incredible, if you can't find something you like then you just aren't hungry. I love the energetic, dim without being dark ambience. The desserts are amazing and the service is always friendly and professional. Red Rock rocks 👌

Very enjoyable dinner. As an “old” guy, I would suggest the restaurant better highlight the entrance door for “after dark “ guests. My wife ordered the salmon and I ordered the chicken. Both were cooked well with a good presentation.

Now that Red Rocks has gone through a beautiful renovation, it’s better than ever...it’s sleek & modern, but still super comfy. We went this past Saturday, food was exceptional, we had a steak dinner & a pasta dinner & both were cooked perfectly. However, what I love the most about Red Rocks is the service, from the host who opens the door to let you in, to the patient wait staff that guides you through your courses, you feel special, waiters never disappoint. Love this place!!

We have always enjoyed our dinners at Red Rocks, so when I was considering a place to have a surprise dinner party for my wife, this was the perfect choice. They were very accommodating to our group and everyone loved the food and atmosphere. Considering the quality of the food, professionalism of the service and the number of people we had, the price was very reasonable. They really helped set the tone for a great evening and a birthday my wife will remember.

Love the remake at this location. The staff is fantastic providing excellent service. Because it is Restaurant Week the place was packed and we sat on one of the heated patios. We really enjoyed it and were very comfortable. The food was good, especially when you factor in the low price.

Mixed experience. Appetizers and dessert were good. Four of six main courses were steak, and none were cooked properly. Service started out well and then significantly dropped off over the course of the meal, would have sent steaks back but didn't see the server for quite some time after entrees were brought to the table.
