Food was great, service was great, hostess needs to learn how to help the guests when they ask for assistance. If you do not know the answer to a question, ask your manager and do not tell the guests that their request cannot be fulfilled.

Table side guacamole is fantastic. Excellent service. My enchiladas were delicious. My wife enjoyed her three different types of tacos. Out door dining area is very nice. We come to Orlando every year and our first stop getting off the plane is Rocco

If you want authentic Mexican with a creative flair, served in a great lakeside location then this is your place! Tableside guacamole was outstanding and my meal was perfect - basically a seafood stew served is a screaming hot lava rock bowl. Epic.

A fun place. At least try Rocco's one time but know you will come back again. The service was excellent. Very attentive. Tacos was good. Enjoyed the sipping Tequila. Yes, I would definitely come back again.

Table side guacamole is the best you will ever have. They have these spicy chips and the combination is out of this world. I found the other food to be good, but not up to the guacamole. Aside from that it was a little loud and hard to talk. But many groups around us were having a party and that looked like fun.

 (Washington DC)·Dined on December 30, 2017

The best part of the meal was the delicious guacamole made table-side. It went downhill after that. We started with cocktails, and I watched as a good bit of our drinks spilled onto the floor as our waitress tried to carry 2 large drinks in 1 hand. Expensive drinks to waste on the mop. Our entrees were average, at best. This place is pricey, and I don't mind paying more for a good meal...but that wasn't the case here. It was simply very average food. The service was very slow right from the start. The atmosphere was loud, but that didn't bother us since we were warned in advance. I won't return.

Love the vibrance and ambiance of RT, but food so far has only been very mediocre, with the exception of the guacamole and jalapeno poppers.
We've tried several different dishes, - Tacos, quesadillas and they were just marginal.

We go to Rocco’s every year for our Christmas gathering of two families who live in other cities but come together for a fun dinner at Rocco’s. Our family actually had eaten there the day before for brunch. Quick review of that: I ordered the avocado toast. It was really a thin layer of guacamole spread on thick bread (I liked the bread) with two eggs burned around the edges. First Watch, next door, serves Avocado Toast (and both restaurants have almost the same description and similar pricing!) which is loaded with an inch of avocado and has two basted eggs. I finally convinced the wait person to bring me avocado. She returned with a tiny cup. Hmm.
Dinner: the salads which we loved have disappeared from the menu, so we decided to try a trio of tacos. Pork, chicken and fish of the day—mahi-mahi. Fish was delicious but the others were forgettable. Soft corn taco shells were mushy. Sangria was fabulous. Our waiter was extremely engaging. We had fun, but not sure Rocco’s will be our destination.

Excellent choice if you want good food and a great atmosphere. This spot is always hopping and there a multiple bar areas, outside view over Sand Lake is amazing if you can get a table . Service is always excellent . And if you like Tequila, you have found a second home as they have hundreds of choices.

Our second time at Rocco’s. First time left us wanting more. Flavors were mild and lacked anything special. Service was mediocre. Last night we tried again with tequila enthusiasts visiting. Again, we left thinking it was just OK. Tacos were a bit dry and needed some pico or salsa to moisten / finish them. Tequila selection is no doubt impressive. View out to the lake is nothing shy of incredible. Unfortunately I’m sure we’ll go a third time. It’s the kind of place we really wanted to like. The environment is fun and energetic. Appetizers/Starters may be a better choice for us because overall all it falls short in food/flavor. Sorry R T.

The atmosphere is a party atmosphere. The music is great. It is loud so you can get crazy with your friends. The food is just mediocre borderline not good! Although the guacomole dip is good (and I don't like guacomole!) The chips are seasoned and crisp! Yum! Our waiter had too many tables so often I was trying to get someone anyone's attention! Our waiter was a little indifferent when I asked for drink referrals or preference. I always ask my server for their recommendations. He didn't have one. He was very matter of fact...a little indifferent. But.... For a fun time without any expectation of delicious food this is the place for you! The music is great! Also, make reservations... we got right in!
