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 !!
Thanks so much! We are so glad you had such a great experience. Hope to see you again soon!
Very good service, nice and relaxed atmosphere. The Tiki Punch is a must try.
Thank you! The Tiki punch is so refreshing, glad you enjoyed it!
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.
Hi Steph, thank you for your feedback. Shellfish has gone up astronomically this year, the cost is unbelievable. We try to be as fair as possible with portions and prices. We're glad you enjoyed the space and the service and hope you come back again soon!
Pleasant surprise, food was amazing. A very fun and casual spot. Definitely going back again and again!
Thanks so much! This is the experience we strive for! See you again soon - The RHK Team
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.
Hi Kelly, thanks for your feedback.
Love this place. The mini boil is delicious have had it 2 ways , the rhk and lemon garlic both fantastic. )lemon garlic a tad too salty. Fun to eat the mini boil makes dinner entertaining. The strawberry Cupcake with cheesecake milkshake is a must. Brought friends second time and they loved it too
Thank you! We are glad you've enjoyed the mini boils & milkshakes. Come back again soon! - The RHK Team
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.
Hi! Thank you for your feedback, we are so glad the seafood boil, chicken sandwich and milkshake were fantastic! We appreciate your comments and your patience with our staff, we are always striving to do better! - The RHK Team
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.
Hey Jenna! Thank you so much, we're flattered we're the best seafood you've ever had ad we're so happy you got to try our amazing milkshakes! See you again when you're back in CT! - The RHK Team
From service to food, we were not pleased with anything.
So sorry you had a bad experience, we have messaged you privately - The RHK Team
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.
Hi Mandy, thank you for your feedback. We hope you enjoyed the visit aside from these comments - The RHK Team
I loved everything about this establishment: the delicious food, the family friendly environment, the wonderful service and servers, the location, and the adult beverages. I cannot wait to go back, and the friend whose birthday we were celebrating said he is definitely going to bring others to this restaurant.
Thanks so much! We're glad you had a stellar experience - see you again soon!
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.
Hi! Thank you for your feedback, its very helpful for us to improve. We're glad you enjoyed the burger and gin and tonic! - The RHK Team
Lobster boil was terrific, loaded with seafood. Great drinks
Thank you Jans! So glad you enjoyed your visit! - The RHK Team
Had to resend fix boil back unfortunately had long strand of hair . 😢 but they took boil and gave me a new bag! Great food and service
Hi! So sorry for the mishap but we're very glad we were able to fix it for you! Happy you enjoyed the food and service, The RHK Team
No veggies or salad on the menu! A bit over priced
Hi! We are in the process of adding a few salads and even a vegetable seafood boil! Stay tuned, we hope you check us out again in the future!
After seeing RHK featured on the local news channel, I immediately made a reservation. The experience exceeded expectations. The seafood boil was great and the service perfect. I can't wait to go back to try some other items on the menu.
We left. The service was awful. We were there for over a half hour. All we received were menus and water. No wait staff in sight.
We're so sorry you were not served, we are working on rectifying this situation.
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're sorry you had this experience, we value your feedback and are taking steps to ensure this does not happen again!
Highly recommend a reservation as foot traffic from the aquarium can fill up the restaurant quickly. I made a reservation for lunch and was glad I did so. The meal was good to very good but those milkshakes were outstanding! The service is kind and most of all understanding of small children.
Thank you Sarah! I'm glad you and the kid's enjoyed your visit and especially our milkshakes!
We have loved our food each time we go and just recently celebrated on of our birthday's at this location. Fun vibe/ambiance, but the service seems a bit slow and not too sure of their menu offerings. However, everyone is very nice!
Hi! We are so glad you chose us for your birthday celebration! Thank you for your feedback, we are working on staffing. Thanks for coming!
Place was so much fun! Food was great - had the Snow Crab boil - you can choose from 3-5 seasoning options. Just a unique new dinning option. I would not wear white though it can get messy.
Thank you!! Not wearing white is a good tip, haha! Hope to see you again soon!
The food was very good, though a little bit overpriced. However the service was abysmal. It seems like need to have twice as many people working as we’re there.
Hi! We are so glad you enjoyed the food! We're working on staffing, and value your feedback! We hope you give us another try in the future!
Staff was friendly and helpful
Food was outstanding
Hey Jessica! Thank you, we are so glad you enjoyed your visit!
Food was not as described on the menu and had to be sent back. Crab Mac n cheese had no crab. Was sent back and replacement had crumbs of crab. Lobster roll was not seasoned and overpriced. Waiter was great, but would not return.
Hi LeykaA, we are so sorry for your experience with us. We are still working out some kinks and your comments are hugely helpful. We do hope you give us another try again!
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.
Hi John, we apologize. This is certainly not the experience we want our customers to have. We would like to make it up to you should you give us another try. Please ask for Ock and he will take care of you! Thank you for your feedback.
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.
Hi Jack! We apologize, certainly you are right - there are many kinks we've had to work out. Our staff has been better trained and educated to serve you better. We hope you give us another shot!
The lobster roll was literally the worst I ever ate. The fried oysters were bland. The martini had too much vermouth as the bartender was a teenager with clearly no experience. Overall bad experience and I will not return. Strongly suggest much better options in Norwalk. Dined 6/19.
We're sorry we did not meet your expectations, we value your opinion and have taken steps to remedy our faults. We do hope you give us another chance.
This place is amazing, food is great, fresh quality great service. This place is really an amazing dining experience. Will definitely recommend and come back again.
Super fun with the kids. Has a bit of a chain feel, but it's the only restaurant of its kind in the area so I'm very happy about it's arrival.
