My wife and I dined at the RHK which was/is conveniently located in Norwalk, CT. Upon entering the establishment, the hostess Liana greeted us. She was the perfect hostess; bubbly and engaging with us. Several mins later, we were approached by the waitress/server Lyne who was also very friendly. We ordered two appetizers; fried calamari and honey BQ boneless wings. We also ordered the Fish Bowl drink and another regular cocktail. My wife liked the Fish Bowl drink but thought the fried calamari was a bit too salty. My boneless wings were somewhat fried a bit too hard. Main entrees: seafood Ramen noodles and I picked the HK burger. My wife loved the seafood soup dish and my burger was deliciously off the charts. Wow ! Gotta eat a burger this BIG once in a while right. Heads up ! The Fish Bowl drink is ginormous and costs $130 just for the drink so be ready - we'll whatever you don't drink you can take it home. They also other great looking cocktails at much lower price. Liana, Lyne and the bartender were all amazing and made sure we were taken care of. We'd say DO NOT loose these ladies. They truly made our experience worth it. Liana was the hostess but we saw her chipping in and helping out her coworkers. RHK owners should be happy to them. Ok to be fair, I need to point out just a couple of negatives, both Men/Ladies bathroom needed a bit of TLC. Someone should be cleaning them periodically throughout the day/night. Easy on the salt for the Fried calamari and BBQ boneless ribs, don't fry them until they're rocks; they could be a lot tender. We'll definitely be coming back and hope to see the same wait staff. We also would recommend RHK !!

Although it was a nice place, we were disappointed by the amount of food given. Two people ordered 1lb of king crab legs in their broil and all they received were two crab legs. I ordered half lb and received the same. When we told the waitress(who was very nice) she apologized and went to the kitchen to find out what happened. When she came back, she said that indeed the 1lb order was correct and they had mistakenly given me a second crab leg, I was surprised and asked are you sure 1/2 lb is one crab leg she said yes. They charge about $44 for the pound, which we thought given the food quantity it was a lot. There other places we’ve gone to that give a lot more for a bit less and are just as good. Then one friend wanted the chocolate bacon milkshake and then found out they had run out of the bacon which was also disappointing. Lastly, my friend ordered an old fashioned and found a fruit fly in it, she returned it and got a fresh drink. They did credit her the drink which was nice.

Since it’s a newer place, I would suggest they work on their portions, and make sure they have supply in stock for items that are on the menu provided and for the bartenders to make sure not to serve drinks that have fruit flies as that could be a complete turn off to a diner.

Read about their opening so decided to try. Server was very in experienced and not attentive at all. There liquor offerings were very limited too. Food was mediocre at best.
Won’t last is my prediction. Not good snowing for the limited menu and too specific of a theme not very well carried out.

First I’ll say that the seafood boil I ordered was very delicious. Very flavorful and filling. I appreciated the tools given to peel the shrimp and especially the gloves because it was messy. The service however was lacking. We sat outside and we’re given menus. It had kid activities on the other side but they didn’t have any writing utensils or crayons for the kids. I asked for a pen or pencil and we never got one. We were not given a drink menu for a little while until they realized they hadn’t given it to us. When our food came out we didn’t have any utensils or napkins on the table. We had to ask. My husbands beer glass had a huge crack in it so we had to wait to get that replaced, I ordered a vodka martini but they informed me the didn’t have regular vodka only flavored. How does a bar not have vodka? My daughter enjoyed her chicken nuggets but not the fries. they were a bit soggy and flavorless. My husband had the Korean fried chicken sandwich and it was delicious. We shared a peanut butter milkshake for dessert and that too was fantastic. Overall the food was good but will wait a while for them to get their service a bit better. I will give benefit of doubt since it’s a very new restaurant.

This restaurant was the best seafood I’ve have ever. Their seasoning is delicious. Their milkshakes are huge and also very good. My brother and I got the king crab leg boil and my parents got the snow crab leg boil. I would definitely go there again if I ever make it back to CT.

I thought the price for a kids pasta dish was a little high considering no bread or anything with it. And five dollars for a chocolate milk was very high as well- Because it was a “bar” chocolate milk.

The service was slow and awkward. We sat for quite a few minutes before even getting water. The gin and tonic, I will say, was one of the best I have ever had but overpriced for the size. Our appetizers came and our meals literally were served seconds later. The food was ok. The lobster in the lobster roll was way overcooked. My husband LOVED his burger although it was well done and not medium as he ordered. We then had to ask for the check. We felt a bit invisible overall and it was not very busy at the time we were there.

Had high hopes for this new spot but was completely let down on literally every front. Our server did absolutely nothing to be attentive- and never even brought us cutlery. Food is a mess and requires explanation which of course was
not given either. Had to ask for wet wipes which should have been given along with food. Server couldn’t describe any dishes or drinks as she clearly never received any training. Place was dark and dingy. Sad that we have yet another restaurant in SoNo with incompetent management and ownership.

We were disappointed with our experience at RHK Seafood Boil & Bar. The food is good but the service is slow and the staff is disinterested. The boil itself is very messy to eat and we felt as if we were drowning in empty shells and dirty napkins and the staff seemed completely unaware. We couldn't get out of there fast enough and definitely won't be back.

They just opened and need more time to work things out. We felt ignored for a good 29 min after being seated as the staff seemed to have familiarize with the cashier system.
Seafood Boil is great, burgers (yes, I know it’s a seafood place) not so much. We did not get asked how the burger to be done. That’s probably more a service issue.
Bar opened late because the bartender was late.

Anyway- might be a great place and we likely will give it another shot. Just not soon.
