Red Rocks is a great neighborhood restaurant. While part of a chain, there is no chain feel. The dining experience is obviously very important to the managers. Our food tonight was very good. The chicken saltimbocca was excellent. The "Southern Salad" had some of the best chicken tenders I've ever had. Our service was excellent as well. This is a perfect place for a casual evening meal.

Food choices was excellent. We used the price fixed menu and they changed out the mashed
potatoes for another item, which was very accommodating, ( my wife is lactose intolerant).

Service was fair, waitress did not top off drinks.

Great dinner and always fresh seafood which can be a challenge in Charlotte - one of the few places I'll order seafood this far from the ocean - and Red Rocks always delivers!

This was our first visit. I was very disappointed with my meal. My husbands meal was very good, he had the special with scallops and shrimp. I ordered the NY strip with Brussels sprouts. The steak was mediocre with very little seasoning. Same with the Brussels sprouts. They were undercooked, almost hard, with very little flavor. We chose Red Rocks based on a recommendation from a friend as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. I would potentially go again but would not order a steak again. The service was excellent. We were in and out in 45 minutes.

Are usually eat at the Huntersville location but since it's been closed we decided to try the Charlotte location for my birthday. I was not as impressed with our appetizer of calamari as it was kind of cold and my sides weren't as good as they usually are!!!

It was a visit for my birthday so it was a little disappointing

We made some specific requests for where to be seated when I made the reservation on OpenTable. When we arrived it was as if the staff did not know what “table, not booth, away from drink station and bathroom access, somewhere not noisy”meant. After offering us two different unsatisfactory places to sit that were directly in conflict with what had been specifically requested, we were seated in the Party Room. That proved to be ideal for our needs. But it was frustrating to think that our specific requests had perhaps not even been read on the reservation notes...so what’s the point?

The menu is extensive with absolutely incredible food. The service was wonderful. We split an order of Bruschetta, and had the Southwest Ravioli and Fettuccine as our entree. We split a slice of their chocolate cake which was wonderful but too big for us to finish.

Food was really good and management was attentive. The server was friendly and offered menu and wine selections. I just can't say it was the best experience. There was a high school reunion going on while we were there, which appeared to have the wait staff just a little distracted. I watched one family wait for at least 15 minutes before anyone got back to them. Thankfully, they had water and menus, but they were obviously frustrated. It also looked like the senior servers were training new staff, which I would never have done on a Saturday night while an event was going on. We had a hard time enjoying our date with all the distractions. It just felt off. We will go back and try it again. Perhaps at a different time and day.

Wide variety of items On menu. Sunday brunch had several selections. I ordered eggs Benedict. Eggs were similar to hard boiled (way too overcooked) served w/ a very tiny amt of hollandaise. Other meal ordered was also unimpressive. This is a nice looking establishment and has good parking. Staff was pleasant ad dessert case looked lovely.
