Ordered a Caesar salad, almost all of the Roman had red/brown edges on them. It looked like old, bad lettuce. I advised the server and requested a new Caesar salad. When the new one arrived it was all iceberg lettuce and it was so drenched with dressing I could hardly tell if the lettuce was fresh or not. I advised the server that Caesar salad is not made with iceberg lettuce and requested for it to be taken away. The server came back with a menu and all but threw it on the table; I’m sure she didn’t realize she did, but that’s just how the menu landed as they are large and heavy. My son was shocked. At the point, I was disgusted over the entire experience and my son was all but finished with his meal. I advised the server I would not be eating. Shortly after we got home, my son became sick. It was from the wrap he had at lunch; we know because we could tell by what we saw. All in all, worst lunch we’ve had in years. I basically paid for my son to get sick. Disappointing.

We were quickly seated upon arrival for our 6 o’clock reservation in the quiet area directly behind the hostesses stand. Our wonderful server Ian took our drink orders and soon after delivered a very tasty old fashion and a pear martini. We split a bowl of the she crab soup and blue cheese wedge salad; which were both delicious and followed with our amazing dinner of petite medallions and lobster ravioli. We were so full we ordered the chocolate and carrot cake to go and enjoyed them later that evening. Definitely going back soon to enjoy this experience again!!!

Location and service were great, but the food underwhelming. Both my husband and my entrees were very bland and under seasoned. This was disappointing considering the prices .

Our server was excellent. She was very attentive and helpful and stopped by often even though we were outside and probably away from her other tables.

The food was good, but not better than expected for the price range. No complaints.

We wanted to sit outside and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. I definitely give all of the waitstaff top ratings. We also noticed when we got back to the car that someone came and disinfected our table and knowing that they are diligent about that is very reassuring right now. We will definitely be back again!

Ordered a martini which was nice n a tall glass with ice-absolutely gross. Filet had no flavor at all and almost missed the small spoonful of potatoes. Wedge salad was delicious. Should have gone to Red Rock in Charlotte.

Reserved outdoor table.
Our party was offered an indoor booth for 6.
Hostess stated they had decided to closed the outdoor seating
As the departed party hadn’t been cleaned up yet.

Ultimately they set 2 tables indoors but had to ask for appropriate distancing from adjacent tables .

Red Rocks did not honor our request for a booth that we put in the notes on Open Table.
Not sure where the disconnect was.
Plenty of booths available and we were given one when asked.

My husband and I have been to Red Rocks many times. This time was for Easter Sunday dinner. We both ordered the shrimp cocktail appetizer and the lobster ravioli entree. The shrimp were cooked perfectly and were very large. The ravioli was served with a delicious cream sauce and topped with shrimp, scallops, and asparagus spears. This was once of the best meals we've had! No one can top their lobster ravioli! For dessert my husband got his favorite, the Tuxedo cake, and I got carrot cake which is new to the menu. Both were delicious! Service was outstanding, maybe even a little too good. We were done with 3 courses in an hour. We'll certainly be back again.

This might have been a good restaurant. The food was pretty good, the service was good but...
There was no social distancing and I felt very uncomfortable and unsafe sitting so close to strangers, not knowing where they’d been or who they’d been exposed to.
It did teach me a new question I will have to ask in making reservations at other restaurants. I won’t be coming back here any time soon

The food was subpar. The filet was more of a sirloin consistency. It had no flavor . The Salmon was not great either. Very dry. The best part was the service.

Have been to Red Rocks many times; know it's popular so made the reservation a month before Easter. Restaurant was not full when we arrived but hostess asked if it was "okay" if we sat outside. Not happy with this. We were then taken to a booth off the bar area in the back near the restrooms. Not happy; why not the the main dining room considering that I had made the res early. We ended up sitting in the general bar area but away from the traffic to the rest rooms. Menu was also disappointing. It was advertised as brunch but less than half the menu related to breakfast items. There were only two choices for dessert both cake. My husband and I also felt rushed. Because we've had good experiences here in the past, we will still frequent this restaurant hoping that this was just an "off" experience.

Shoulda known better than to go to Easter brunch at a place that doesn’t usually serve brunch. No brunch menu online, so I called ahead to confirm they would cook eggs to order in addition to the handful of brunch items offered. Got there and discovered they only do poached eggs, not at all what we wanted. Rest of food was mediocre at best — lukewarm potatoes, dry chicken. Won’t ever go back.

It took awhile for a server to make initial contact. Once she did, she was professional and friendly.The runner who brought out the food was the opposite. I ordered the chicken club and they forgot the bacon. Overall, it was expensive for just so-so food and atmosphere.

I ordered steak with broccoli and mashed potatoes. My broccoli wasn't steamed quite done enough. I was a little hard, so I took it back home and cooked it longer. Steak was pretty good. Our waitress was amazing and very friendly. It was my first time there. I'll revisit.

The Red Rock Café in Park City is a great place to eat, but the noise level can be pretty high at times. So, it's best to go at the off times. While we were there, the glare from the large windows was very bad so it was hard to see our friends across the table from us. But after a while the sun shifted and it got a little better. The food was great, but I found the Reuben Sandwich lacking in meat and sauerkraut.

This is the third time we have eaten at Red Rocks café. This time we shared the tuna and avocado tartare and enjoyed it very much. My wife had the she crab soup liked it but thought it was a little too watery, she also had the kale salad and liked it very much. I had the wagyu burger and it was delicious. Server was excellent and and pleasant. We will be back.

I have never had a bad experience at Red Rocks in Redstone. The food, service, and atmosphere are always superb. The staff really care about what they do and it shows. I highly recommend any Red Rocks location in the Charlotte area.
