Went there for our 6 year anniversary and it was very good. Service was friendly, prompt and fantastic. Had the tomahawk and crab cake stuffed into lobster tails. Delicious.

The salmon with the honey truffle sauce is my favorite. I am afraid to order anything else bc this is so delicious. Hubby’s steak was excellent and sets a high standard. The Oysters were extremely disappointing. The smallest we have every gotten and it will stop us from ever ordering them again...it was that disappointing. The martini was a very nice pour but the Bloody Mary was very watered down. It looked like it would be good and a nice size until we each took sip. Not good at all.
Our reservations were honored and we enjoyed the window view.
When reservations were made we said it was a birthday celebration. We thought they do a complimentary birthday dessert but nothing was brought out and it ruins the surprise if you have to ask. Bummer.
The ambiance, food and service were over the top good ...it is still worthy of a five star rating. It is nice to see this local restaurant doing so well...it definitely is needed in our town.

I Made reservations online for my wife’s birthday first time coming to Rocco’s I asked for a candle and a cake for my wife for dessert nothing ever came or was acknowledged. Drinks before hand were good. We ordered salads that were good and so was the bread. We both ordered steaks filet mignon medium well not a trace of pink inside and very dry but tasted ok. Very disappointed, why ask for special requests if you don’t follow through with them and for being known for steaks they fell way short on that. I’m not one for posting reviews but since I sent a private message to Rocco’s and 3 days later I still have not received any response and spent $160 later i decided to write a review.

Food average - nothing outstanding to rave about honestly - filet steak just good - Service was above average-// ambiance - not much difference from the old brick - I know it’s a hot ticket, and there is not really much steakhouse competition in the area- management not greeting you - not a warm & fuzzy place, just a tired looking place with I guess a new kitchen-

i would describe rocco's as "meh." the fried burrata was really good, salad was good, soy glazed brussel sprouts were terrible, and steaks were just ok. we were expecting roasted or at least somewhat crispy sprouts with a light glaze but they were basically boiled sprouts soaking in a bowl of soupy soy dressing. both my husband's strip and my filet were overcooked -- for a nice steakhouse, we expect that the steaks be prepared exactly as requested. we appreciate the convenience of being in the borough but we found rocco's to be more of the same -- overpriced mediocre food in a nice ambiance. i've had better prepared filets in nearby non-steakhouse restaurants for less, so we probably won't be going back.

Unfortunately we had a very bad experience the steak we ordered was cold when we told the waitress they took it and after 10 minutes brought it back cold again you would expect paying 100$ for steak can get you warm food !!!!!

The service by our waiter and the brunch food was excellent.

Disappointment in that it was my daughter's birthday and they had no candles with which to put on the dessert to have a mini birthday celebration.

Other than that, we enjoyed our visit.

Our server was great and the food was awesome!

Unfortunately we sat in the smaller enclosed porch - holds a table of six, four and two. The glass that surrounded us only amplified the very loud people at the 6 person table. They left, and another party of four came in - they were even louder. No one could hear each other at our table, so we ended up shouting. Not to mention everyone was sweating in that room. We should’ve moved but it was too crowded to place us at another table I’m sure.

I am now acutely aware that this restaurant has a draw of the 60+ crowd. There’s a lot of people visiting other tables and interrupting other diners with their loud talking and squeezing in between chairs.

I’m sure if I came back that I would request the larger porch in the corner, or when the weather is warmer sit outside.

Very nice meal, good service. My only complaint is that we were charged an extra $5 for a premium rye suggested by the waiter (who did not mention the upcharge), bringing the cost of a cocktail to an overpriced $18. The customer should be informed of "hidden charges."

We had lunch on Saturday and we had a wonderful server who really made the experience very nice. I had an orange Cosmopolitan drink and it was really good. We split the special burger of the day along with two appetizers. The burger was really fantastic and the fries were cooked perfectly. The entire experience was one of the better ones we have had in a long while. Highly recommended.

Oysters Roccofello were delicious. Filet mignon was a little dry and I ordered it medium rare. Outside of steak was overcooked. Ordered asparagus that we're very stringy and over cooked.
Beautiful decor and atmosphere. Our waiter was wonderful and everything brought out promptly.
I would definitely go back but will not order steak.
