Had a large group of friends meeting for Sunday brunch and we had everything from spinach dip to chicken and waffles, each type of Benedict, and Cajun shrimp pasta. Everyone loved their food and my crab cake Benedict was delicious! Our server, Suzanne, was on point throughout to take orders, fill drinks, and bring us multiple cappuccinos 💕. Highly recommend this play every time I go.

Bartender did not know how to make my drink. When told, still failed. 1 out of three entrees were tasteless. Calamari appetizer was rubbery. Cheese spinach dip was mostly cream cheese and nasty.
Managers comp'd bill. Still very disappointed for first time, New Years meal with family and friends
Listed as top restaurant in Charlotte, but I don't see why.

We enjoyed our late lunch at this Red Rocks Cafe location. The food was good, and our server, Noah, was excellent. I definitely will dine there again soon.

The service was great, the hostess that greeted us was very sweet and kind, the waitress was amazing and attentive. The steak and green beans were bland but we had a wide variety of food and everything else tasted delicious!

We've eaten here many times in the past. But this visit was definitely not as good. Chicken medallions were way over cooked (like chewing shoe leather), veggies were barely warm, service was mediocre. Red Rocks can do better than this.

Server kept forgetting refills and needed to check in more often. Not sure if being seated on the patio was the cause of her not stopping by but there were times I had an empty glass of water during salad, entree and dessert. Chopped salad is my favorite yet could have used a tad more dressing on the side. Server didn’t check in on us so I wasn’t able to ask for more. The she crab soup was okay in flavor and crab portion was lacking.
The Cajun salmon was delicious and the portion was generous. The broccoli cauliflower was a small portion and bland. Would definitely order again.

Love the desserts at Red Rocks. We had the brownie a la mode and loved it but thought it be even better if the brownie was served warm. Next time would make a special request to warm the brownie.

Great food. Service was slow after food was delivered, empty drinks and waited for the check. There were 6 of us and the only table was a booth, tight fit.

The food was excellent; our server efficient and professional. She hit just the right tone between checking in and letting us eat & chat. The food was wonderful, too. My only issue was one you can't do much about - the noise level. It started out quiet enough for us to hear and talk, but by the time we left I felt like I had to almost shout to be heard across the table. Some other visits have been much quieter so you never know. Maybe it was where our table was located: not far from door, nearer bar and back by restrooms.

The mixed drinks were OK but not as good as ones we had the night before at another restaurant nearby. The noise level was fairly high.

We absolutely love Red Rocks Cafe, but last night we were a little disappointed with the wait on our food, which is unusual. We waited 45 min for our food and a table of 10 that sat down after us got served before us.

I did wonder if Fish & Chips had ever been considered as a menu item! It seemed like a good day for that!

Another outstanding meal at Red Rocks. Medallions with blue cheese and almond crusted Grouper were amazing. And don't miss the best deserts in town.
