We were seated in a tight area right beside another table. Since we were entertaining friends, we asked for something different, better suited for our plans, but we’re told that wasn’t possible as there was now a wait for tables. There were many open tables and we had a reservation, so not sure why this was the case. Our server was not great. Not sure if she as overbooked or just inattentive, but we had to ask for refills repeatedly from other servers in the area. Two of our party ordered the same dish (the coconut salmon special) one came out with the rest of our group, the other was about 10 minutes later. Not sure what the issue was and no explanation was offered. The delay was awkward with 3 of us eating while one just sat and watched us. Food was good once it arrived. We also ordered dessert (5 Layer Chocolate Cake and Tuxedo Cake) and our server brought out chocolate cake and coconut cake instead. We corrected her and finally received the right dessert, but again the delay in receiving the dessert meant we had some of our party eating and others just watching. Not the service I expected from Red Rocks. One of the assistant managers did stop by to apologize and we do appreciate that effort. However, for the prices we do expect better service. Food was delicious as always, but probably won’t be going back anytime soon. Hopefully the service issues can be resolved in the meantime.

Had an early reservation so wasn't crowded. Got seated promptly ,waiter came shortly afterwards. Drinks came quickly as well as the food. Both dishes were excellent. Waiter very attentive. Only complaint was a lack of menu items but it just may be the times..

I am disappointed in the level of covid management. I saw two members of the staff of perhaps 20 that wore masks. We enjoy eating at Red Rocks, but until they take covid more seriously we will limit our visits.

My brother and I went to dinner tonight to celebrate his 29th birthday I had made reservations presumptuously to ensure that we wouldn't have to wait for a table and that the staff knew ahead of time that it was a birthday. I left notes in the reservation details. What we didn't expect was such a Customer Service disappointment with our server. She began the night with no introduction and quickly yet poorly took our drink orders but forgot the drinks that we had just ordered as we were telling her...all I had ordered was a dalmore no rocks and my brother ordered an old fashion with no bitters. We received our drinks and Given she did take an opportunity to check on us before the drinks came out but she never checked our ids. Also didn't check the reservation notes about his birthday so I sneaked and told her if she would please come out with the Oreo cheesecake for him with a candle. She didn't have a problem doing that, which I commend her about, that's good. I ordered the chicken wrap and my brother ordered the Cajun chicken and for appetizer we ordered the coconut shrimp but it never came, My Fries were saturated in oil and my wrap was 75% cheese. His pasta contained zero chicken or sausage...he literally searched for the chicken in his meal and the manager did confirm once we spoke to him that there was supposed to be protein in the chicken Cajun pasta.
The manager did stop by the table to check how everything was going and after explaining to him the disappointments of our experience he definitely turned it around and I have to say he is one of the most genuine managers that I've seen in a food establishment within the area so there is hope here.

I do plan to come back and give this place a second chance but off of first experience, first impressions, I wasn't pleased with the experience.

Wear warm clothing, they like the air cold! Service was fair at best. Had to ask for bread, which came without butter. Appetizer (Swedish Meatballs) took a while to come, with only 4 tables in the dining room occupied. Then our meals came out while we were still eating the appetizer. Fish plates are overpriced! Half price bottles of wine on Mondays is a positive. Also, I like 60's rock but seemed inappropriate for the venue!

Very good brunch! My wife had chicken and waffles that were outstanding!
I had french toast with grits and bacon for sides. The french toast was very good
and the bacon had a great smoky taste! The service was very good also!

My husband and I came to celebrate my husband's birthday. We've been here many times and is always our first choice for celebrating special occasions. We shared a shrimp cocktail appetizer, which was prepared perfectly. Our dinners were lobster ravioli and salmon, both were delicious! Our server was excellent. She was very attentive. The desserts were fabulous (tuxedo cake and chocolate cake).

The only thing that could have made it better was if mussels were added back to the appetizer menu. They've always been my husband's favorite.

Had requested to be seated in 'main dining room' - as we had been seated in 'small dining room's on previous four visits. Small dining room felt like eating with kitchen help, and was a shortcut for diners to restroom. Told they were aware of request but they had no tables available in main dining room as requested. Accepted to try the patio outside which wasn't bad except for bugs flying around table and food.
