I cannot begin to describe how accommodating the Red Rocks staff was today for three of my friends and I who met there for lunch. The weather was 40 and cloudy and they served us outside on the patio (even though they weren't originally set up for dining outside) and they also moved a heater outside to help with the cold. You could tell they sincerely cared about our Covid concerns and respected us wanting to be outside vs the enclosed tent.
Not only that, our meals were delish! We ordered wine, sandwiches, salads and desserts. Everything was fresh, warm and wonderful! We could not recommend Red Rocks more. Amazing service, friendly staff, safe and delicious!

Everything was great! Two suggestions though for the Thanksgiving meal - a little dab of cranberry sauce would be nice and the sweet potato casserole needed a little sweetening up. However, overall the experience was fantastic and I certainly appreciate them being open for Thanksgiving!

I was slightly disappointed in both the food and service. The waiter was cordial but not attentive or very helpful. The food was mediocre. Appetizers were great, but the entrees were fair at best. The hash browns were really salty, mashed potatoes were also super salty and the shrimp and grits were bland. I was disappointed because we go out so rarely due to covid. They did take appropriate actions to maintain covid precautions and I am thankful for that. If we go back it will likely be for appetizers or simple sandwiches, not a nice meal.

First time here and I will likely return though nothing was spectacular. Service was adequate but the server definitely could have been friendlier. Patio was nice and would have been even nicer if the outdoor heaters had been turned on during what was a sunny but chilly November afternoon. Food was fine and menu had a nice variety of items. Desserts looked delicious and next time I'll make sure to leave room for either the carrot cake or coconut cake.
