The food was very good and reasonably priced. The wine selection was well curated and the service was excellent. There was a very noisy group in our section, which tarnished the experience some, but the blame there rests on poor parenting rather than the restaurant. This does appear to be a popular restaurant for families, including mine, but bear that in mind and maybe make reservations a little later on date night. Overall, the service and food won out.

Because of the great food and service, Red Rocks has been one of our favorites for years. We recently introduce another couple to Red Rocks and they loved it--they are already planning a return visit. I always love the super fresh dessert cakes.

I recently moved from Charlotte to Greensboro but Sunday was my Mother’s 84 Birthday so I came back to surprise her and take her out to lunch. Red Rocks is always our “ go to” restaurant for any occasion because we all absolutely love the food, the environment, the ambience, the service and the location. We always are never disappointed! I highly recommend this restaurant to all my friends in the Charlotte, Pineville, and Matthews area.

Good menu and food, but can’t recommend after their ignoring a major problem. Ordered their two lobster tails. First tail was perfect - well seasoned and prepared, but the second one was almost completely missing. Only a couple of soft pieces inside the shell. Reported this to my server. Nothing was done. Charged me the full $ 39.95 for two tails.

My sister and niece were in town. My husband and I have always liked Red Rocks....been going for many years. Husband even had my 40th bday surprise party there (17 years ago!!). Can’t remember our server’s name, but she was great. Great service, attentive, etc. Everyone really enjoyed their meals.

Being new to the Charlotte area, we tried Red Rocks Café (South Park area) to see if it meets our standards for casual dining. We were seated in the "back room" where they were cleaning while we were eating so the ambiance was poor. Also, the service was okay but nothing special. We had a shrimp cocktail for an appetizer and it was a bit "rubber-like" and not very good. Finally the main course was well presented, warm/hot, and okay from a taste perspective. Overall, Red Rocks Café is just okay...nothing too special but way too expensive for the dining experience we had. We had wanted to have dinner there when our family visits later this month but we have since cancelled as there was nothing special about this restaurant.

Everything was awesome. That said we were the last table left in the back room. It seemed they cut the a/c off while we were still eating, as it became quite humid and muggy in there.

We've been to this Red Rocks before and had excellent service and food, but this night's experience was less than stellar. First, we ordered a Wedge salad for our appetizer and the lettuce was browning. Next for our entrees, I ordered coconut Salmon with risotto and my wife ordered the Chicken and Pasta. I think the chef thought my salmon needed to be swimming again as there was so much extra broth in my dish, the risotto was soggy. On the other hand, there wasn't enough sauce on my wife's pasta dish that she felt the pasta was added right out of the strainer. The manager did try to make things better, but overall we've had better experiences here before. Perhaps the Sunday night crew is not as good as the weekly crew.

We enjoyed brunch today. We each had Crabcake Benedict and a Bloody Mary. My husband had grits and I had hash browns. I would recommend adding a choice of a small side salad to the Benedict sides. The hash browns were cold and tasteless. The reason for the 3 stars instead of 5.

Really good food overall, great menu selection and great service - I would have given the food 5 stars but I ordered my steak well and when they brought it out it was clearly medium rare - they did however take it back to cook more to my liking and apologized for the error. The only bummer was that my husband’s meal was sitting there getting cold as he waited for my food to come back out before eating since the purpose was for us going out was to dine together and not watch each other eat at different times ;) I would definitely go back though as overall it tasted great!
