This was our second but not last dinner at Red Rocks Cafe. Both times our experiences were great. We were there on Mother's Day and it was packed. Nevertheless, the service and food were exceptional. The chef allowed us to make some changes. We had the chicken marsala and chicken penne, both were delicious and plentiful. We shared the enormous slice of cake for dessert.

Very good food. I especially like the jumbalaya. The Cajun steak was also yummy. My only complaint was that mixed drinks are pretty pricey.

We have been here many times but it was off this last time. They forgot my appetizer and never asked me if I wanted another drink. My steak was rare and I asked for medium. It took a long time to get anything. We will try it again but not for a while. Very disappointed.

Always a pleasure to dine here and highly recommend it. Food is delicious and service is great. Stacy added to the experience and was an outstanding bartender who was extremely friendly and courteous and made excellent recommendations. The atmosphere is perfect with only minimal background music to allow for enjoyable conversation. And they make you feel welcomed as soon as walk in the front door.

Went with husband for Easter Brunch. Didn’t see anything telling us pre fixed menu at $34 per person. Didn’t wait too long but eggs Benedict was cold, muffin and ham were tough. Deviled eggs appetizer very good which we had boxed up to go along with dessert. We walked off & forgot them went back to get them few mins later and they had already been trashed. We were given new desserts but passed on eggs. Bill was around $85 - $90 for worst meal I’ve ever had there.

We did not realize that the menu would be set for Easter. The price was definitely not worth the choices for food. We will definitely not be eating there for Easter again.

We have been to Red Rocks many times but not since their renovations. Not sure what else has changed, the management? The menu has some small changes but the food was the biggest change. Nowhere near as good as before. Very disappointing, I don't think we will be going back.

We usually love this restaurant. However, the night we went they got my nephew's order wrong, my sister-in-law's steak was cold, and they got the bills wrong. It was the night before Easter and I wonder if they were understaffed in preparation for the full day on Sunday. This is no excuse when the patron pays a lot of money for good service.

This is one of the best kept secrets in the Southpark area - neighborhood feel and the atmosphere is great. Menu is amazing. Really like the reference to local people on the menu - I even recognized some old boys from Garringer who made the list. I cut the filet with a fork! Amazing - ran into some old friends - The construction around it was a little inconvenient but not a nuisance.
Will be back for more!
