Our Thanksgiving dinner was delicious. Two chose the Turkey, one chose the medallions, and one chose the rib eye. Everyone was hugely satisfied!

I told 3 people that we were celebrating my son-in-law's 40th birthday. They still forgot to put a candle on this cake when we ordered dessert. At the very end of the evening the waitress wished him happy birthday. The food was ok. 2 steaks ordered medium and came out medium rare, 1 steak ordered medium well and came out medium. Broccoli was undercooked and had no seasoning on it. I asked for blue cheese dressing on the side of my wedge salad and it came out with everything on the side - bacon strips, blue cheese crumble, tomato and dressing.

One of my regular favorites. Always consistent. Great desserts. Huge. The patios will need heaters for winter. Wish you could avoid going in to get seated outside during Covid. Very good ribeye and burgers.

Pre-COVID19, we loved this place, but they just can't seem to get back to where they were, primarily because they lost a lot of staff and are having trouble getting good people or they're not training them correctly. Red Rocks started out as a very classing restaurant - that is not the case anymore. We sat at our favorite high top in the bar for the first time since the restaurant reopened, and it was a mistake. They have a new bar tender who also helped the main bartender (an long-time person here and great) wait on us (I'm sorry I don't have names) . The first problem was she was rushing us to decide what we wanted. But we're getting used to that since this seems to be way to serve now - get people in and out. But what was disturbing is that the new person went back to tending the bar, and had a never-ending loud discussion with four people at the bar about killing deer - not what I wanted to listen to while eating. And it went on for our entire meal, and that is not exaggeration. This may sound petty to others reading this, but to us it was disturbing and the bartender needs to learn a little professionalism. Why would she possibly feel that this was a conversation others would want to hear, especially while trying to have a nice dinner out. And it shows very poor management and training. This Red Rocks needs to get back to the way it was. The food is good, but they haven't even gone back to their full menu (omitting a couple of our favorites) while the other two Red Rocks have. Something is definitely wrong at this one! And it's a shame, because it used to be so good!

Everything was great except for the skimpy pour of Buffalo Trace. When one is paying those prices one expects a generous pour

Girlfriend and I were there Sunday for brunch and sat outside on the patio. We had pineapple mimosas, eggs benedict and kale salad with lightly blackened grilled chicken, which were delicious and nicely prepared. The restaurant wasn't that busy outside and it was a lovely day; so we lingered for two hours visiting and catching up; our waiter was extremely attentive but didn't rush us. i always enjoy meals here.

My husband and I have been to Red Rocks many times. On this visit we celebrated our 49th wedding anniversary. Both of us ordered filets, mine with blue cheese. As always or meals were outstanding. Our server gave us great service. My only complaint was that our main meal came before I was finished with my salad. I'd have preferred a bit more time, but that was a minor complaint. We'll be back!!

We received our check from our waiter that we only saw 2 x during the whole meal to bring us drinks. Slow service. Salads came out same time as appetizer. When we questioned the charges on the bill the waiter became extremely defensive to the point he got a menu and shoved it in one of our guest face to show her the wine prices. She did not order a pricey wine it was a house wine. Overcharging for wine and side salads paadding our bill 20.00 is unacceptable. 2nd time we have dined with this restaurant. The location at south park we had the same terrible waiter experience. We will never go back to any of their locations

My husband and I came to celebrate my birthday. I ordered the Cajun salmon and my husband ordered the filet. Our meals were outstanding as they always are! I only wish they offered dessert choices besides cake (crepe brûlée would be perfect!).

We had a group of 8 and enjoyed being in the back room. Our servers were helpful and the food arrived timely for all. They have a great tuna appetizer and the fillet medallions are also a favorite of ours. We like the thick cut calamari and enjoy the drink and wine list, which offers a nice selection. This is a “go to” place foe us and we are thrilled to have RR near Ballantyne!!!
