Way too loud every time we go- somebody needs to work on acoustics in there

We couldn’t hear our server talk - prob a long time before I return

Food was good, service was good, ambience was good. To change out flour tortillas to lettuce cups (a piece of lettuce) was $.50, which just seems silly. Home-made table top guacamole was $14. Some things just seemed kind of expensive.

Had a special occasion indicated in the reservation and they ignored it. Server was horrible at pre-bussing the tables. My empty margarita glass sat at the edge of the table from the time we were seated until we left. She wasn’t very personable and almost impossible to talk to everyone at the table due to the noise level

Service was fair, very noisy. We ordered tacos. My husband ordered beef and I fish. They were served flat in a plate almost empty.
We did complain . Waiter did nothing. He said a different chef and that’s the way he does it. We should have asked for manager. We have been to Boca location which doesn’t disappoint.

Service was sub par for this date. One out of four meals was brought to the table after the other 3 people finished eating theirs.

Service was terrible. Food took forever. Very noisy. Margarita has a weird flavor, line smoky. Food was mediocre at best. The restraint is decorated very well but I will never go back.

Great place and brunch! My friends and I had a lot of bad news lately and we needed to decompress for a few hours. Rocco’s definitely achieved that for us. I’m from NY and went to the Brooklyn location once. The ambiance and service in Orlando are FAR better. Thank you Rocco’s Tacos Orlando!

Pretty decent food. It’s very loud and that’s a turn off for me. Tacos were tasty and quacamole was pretty good. Seems to be a good place for drinking and talking a LOT.

What a great dinner. Guacamole made fresh right at the table. I'd tell you to skip entrees and just order desert because the tres leches cake and churos are amazing. That said, the web burrito really hits the spot. Some of the prices are fair, but others are a little off (a la carte tacos are $$$). Service was great. Thank you Adam for a great experience. Tip on the guacamole, if you're a spicy person, order it spicier than you normally would. I don't care for heat, but ordering it medium (mild, medium, hot) was like ordering it plain.

This was the best food experience of my 4 trips to Rocco's. The food was very flavorful. The sound level was off the charts! SO LOUD! Uncomfortable conversations overheard everywhere. BUT, the street corn, grilled sweet potatoes and guacamole are reasons enough to put up with the crowd the alcohol brings in.

My boss and I dine here at least one night every time she travels in from PA. The guacamole was on point tonight! The molcajete was delicious tonight, too (leftovers galore). Restaurant volume levels were perfect. We were able to carry on conversations at normal volume levels throughout dinner. Our server, Tessa (so hope I got that right) was an absolute doll and was amazing throughout our dining experience. Drinks were also spot on (white sangria and passion fruit margaritas)!!

Great food & beverages. Fun decor & great casual ambiance. We live out of the area and Rocco's Tacos is a must everytime we visit Orlando. The fresh guacamole prepared tableside is a must. The weekend brunch is a nice alternative to the regular menu.

The tableside-made guacamole can't be beat! If the weather is nice, get a table outside. The view is beautiful and it is not as noisy.

Overpriced Tex-Mex tourist trap. Food is awful, portions are small, and everything is priced way too high. Don’t get that queso or the molcajete bowls!

We had a wonderful time. Our waiter was great. We sat out by the lake and the heat lamps kept us warm. I loved the table side guacamole and chips. The food was wonderful. The only thing I would change are the prices. They are a little high. Other than that it was a great night.

I had a 8:30 reservation for 6. My husband and I checked in around 8:20 but the remainder of our party had not arrived. I was given the choice of inside or out by the host and reminded to let her know when all had arrived. Outside tables were preferable, let the host know my choice. At 8:34 the entire group arrived and we checked in again. Told to wait in the bar. An inside table was offered at that point. But the host said she had an outside table when given the choice at initial check in and that was preferable. Drinks, guacamole and service was lovely; however we were 45 minutes past our reservation when I checked with host AGAIN. We were seated outside at 9:20. I spoke with a female manager about the situation who gave a feeble apology that was far from genuine. Further, I mentioned that our server was not attentive as we’d been seated for 10 minutes by this time and he had only dropped off water and glasses. Another server was sent over to assist by taking our order for drinks and food, but there was no apology or gesture made to make amends for the lengthy wait past our reservation or poor service.

We’ve been previously with great experiences. Last night’s experience, which was a business outing, was extremely poor and embarrassing for me in front of my business associates. My strong recommendation is better management of table turning times at the door, clear communication by the host to better manage guest expectations and retraining of our server on basic service points and communication with his guests.

Our 30 minute drive to get to Rocco’s was well worth it! We sat outside and enjoyed the ambiance. The food, as usual, was excellent! Service was prompt and welcoming! We are from western NY and it’s always a treat to visit a Rocco’s! Wish we had one near us!
