Everything was fine after we got the attention of a server. My daughter is in the food service industry and after 15 min. she got up and asked if we were going to have a server. No water. Nothing. However, after that, everything went very smoothly and the food was delicious.

Perfect for girls night out. Renovations nicely done. Food always enjoyable. Noise level tolerable. Server rude and had bad attitude. First time this happened at RR. Been going there for 24 years. Disappointing experience and surprising lack of appropriate manager response.

Great food... surprising given the setting which is more that of a bar/pub than a romantic, or upscale restaurant. The decor, the staff, the noise level, is reminiscent of a sport bar/pub. However the food is clearly a step above and could easily be compared to business or more upscale restaurants. Would recommend for several people birthday parties as well... but not for a romantic or kind-of-fancy diner to celebrate an anniversary or birthday (unless you are young-at-heart and like the bar-like decor). Will go back for the food!

Food is mediocre at best, most of it is under seasoned and has very little flavor, the drinks are watery and over priced, the overall price to value is very poor. I would not recommend it unless to go there and for an overpriced pub experience, don't try to get too fancy and keep the cost down.

The food was delicious! Best spinach dip I've had and a generous amount for the table.
The two steak dinners were excellent, as well as the pasta and the salmon. All dinners were generously portioned. The coconut cake was also the best I've had --real homemade taste. It is quite loud in the restaurant, but our booth was a relatively quiet oasis because of the partition beside it.
The hostess was so kind to get us a table inside rather than our original outside reservation (no inside tables available when placing the reservation.)
We will definitely be returning!

Took my wife out for our anniversary. Red Rocks was recommended to me by a client. Good value for a nicer place to go. Restrooms were clean and the atmosphere was easy going. Staff was well prepared and took of all of our requests very promptly. I would go there again.

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.
