Our server was great. Very attentive. I ordered the filet sandwich and honestly it was a 1 out of 5. Very small. And served cool. I sent back my fries as they were cold and soggy. Very disappointing overall.

Overall the visit to Red Rocks Cafe was good. We sat outside on the patio, it was quiet and comfortable. The food could have been better, I usually go for the Cajun salmon and red risotto rice, which was harder than usual. My husband ordered the angel hair pasta which was blan to taste. The customer service provided by Lori was very professional and attentive. I will give it another try.

Red Rocks food is good the only 2 times I have eaten there . We were outside . We were welcomed by friendly staff, and our waitress was outstanding and helpful.
Ambience a little dull and dark and the carpet in reception area looks dirty but probably old and faded . need some brightness.
overall we enjoyed our lunch to celebrate our daughters birthday .

This place never disappoints the staff, service and food is always delicious. It's our favorite place to visit anytime we are in Charlotte. Only issue I had was that the risotto with a little dry and the recipe seem to have changed since the last time I had it outside of that the food was delicious and is always the staff is very nice and very accommodating.

We had a delightful experience at Red Rocks Cafe at Strawberry Hill in Charlotte. A Friday afternoon lunch in lent can limit your menu choices, but Red Rocks always have a variety of non meat options to choose from. My wife got a Buffalo Shrimp wrap she said was delicious and I had a small plate of 8 lightly fried Coconut Shrimp with a Thai Chili sauce that was sweet and spicy to perfection. Our server Stephen Rochardson always does an excellent job. He is thorough and attentive. A pleasurable day.

Our waitress dropped a container of dressing and it went on my clothes, shoes, handbag and table. The manager offered me a wet cloth to wipe up but didn’t apologize nor was there any offer for compensation. While it was an accident, excellent customer service would have included some compensation.

Ate outside. Very nice patio. Inside, no guest was following CDC guidelines of masking except when eating. Waitstaff masked but not gloved. Had the tuna steak with red rice risotto and it was fantastic. Big portion, enough to have a bit to take home. Our waitperson was right on top of things. Been going to Red Rocks for many years. Always consistent.

Red Rocks is a family favorite, the staff is always friendly and service is prompt and efficient, the food is always fresh and overall our experience can be rated very good to excellent. The fresh mixed vegetables that are often served with most entrees are always simply prepared and fresh, something that I really like. Often, vegetables are ruined by high fat preparation...at Red Rocks, the flavors of the food are allowed to shine through the preparation. The ambiance is pleasant especially outside on the covered patio. The music selection is excellent with easy going, but great classic light rock music played the entire evening inspiring that 'Spirit of the Radio' feeling...because the mix brings back fond memories. The deserts are always good, although they could use some seasonal or special choices from time to time. Visit Red Rocks for great friend, family or even business gatherings, special events or just hanging out...we love it!
