This is the first time my husband and I ate here! The food was delicious, outstanding and innovative! Our server was great! She explained everything on the menu even down to the smallest of details. I highly highly recommend this restaurant! I can’t wait to come back!!
Delicious! Will definitely go back.
Outstanding food, service and atmosphere! Local flavor but taste like you are in a very expensive restaurant. Great value. Thanks for bringing so many restaurants to TR. we are so grateful!!!
Went for restaurant week. For the 30$ was good, got 3 courses, but didn’t have the dessert I wanted :( looked at reg menu prices, not sure I would go back and pay to have a 3 course meal with wine during a normal week.
Great spot for a date night! Small, Quiet, great ambience. Great to get out of downtown Greenville and explore Travelers Rest. Go to the Tasting Room for a glass of wine before dinner- It’s right next door.
The good was delicious and reasonably priced.
We had a wonderful time. We tried the calamari, Brussels sprouts, and turnips and radishes as appetizers. All were delicious! Settled on pasta dishes for our main meal and you could tell it was fresh with good ingredients. Even the bottle of wine we shared as a treat!
Very disappointed in our experience. The service was OK but expected higher level based on type of establishment. We drove out of our way and the food was extremely disappointing. We ordered surf and turf and had to send the steak back because it was over cooked. When we ordered the waitress never asked how we wanted it prepared so I flagged her down to tell her medium to rare and it still came back over cooked. The shrimp was prepared and served with no thought in mind. It was basically boiled, had no flavor and served with no cocktail sauce or butter. I could have gone to my local grocery store and bought frozen shrimp and prepared better than this. We are not complainers but our experience was not good.
Liked previous menu better with emphasis on pasta. Homemade pasta and gnocchi are excellent. But limited choices this time no risotto or gnocchi. The porchetta was fatty. The market fish listed as a large plate was really a small plate and priced too high. Fish was very good though.
Excellent in all aspects!
FOOD WAS VERY GOOD. WINE I HAD WAS VERY GOOD BUT HIGH PRICED AND THE POUR WAS VERY LIGHT. PLACE HAS NO OMBIANCE, WHICH IS OK. WE WILL COME BACK.
Great restaurant with a simple atmosphere and Italian "inspired" cuisine, highlighting locally sourced ingredients. Great cocktails and a decent wine list. It's really a shame they don't have limoncello, which would've capped off a great night and fantastic meal.
As always, the food was fresh, delicious, and innovative. I would highly recommend Rocket Surgery! And don’t skip dessert!
The food was excellent. Thursday was 1/2 price bottle of wine night so added bonus.
Rocket Surgery is one of our favorite places - whether it is on a Wednesday for their meatball subs or celebrating a special occasion. All of their food is amazing especially the meatballs and Brussels sprouts and the drinks are always done right. We love this place
I had no issues with my dining experience at Rocket Surgery, but there was also no "wow" factor. The service was the best part of the evening - our hostess was very personable and attentive to our needs. The food was tasty, but there were no unique flavors or combinations of ingredients to make it worth the price. When you take away the fancy trappings, the bolognese is just a bowl of noodles in meat sauce, the same as could be found at any decent Italian restaurant for two-thirds the price.
I had a very enjoyable dinner at Rocket Surgery! The food was so fresh and absolutely delicious. The pasta is made in house and it was perfectly cooked. The service was also excellent and our waitress was always very helpful and ready to answer any of our questions. I look forward to returning to Rocket Surgery soon!
Food, service and atmosphere are all awesome.
New menu since our last visit. Love the olives appetizer. I had the chicken Parmesan again and it was great again. My wife had pasta and my daughter had the fish entree. Both were hits.
Everything, from menu knowledge of server, to mixologists originality to taste and presentation of food was incredible.
Our first visit. Menu and website caught my attention. I love a place that has craft cocktails and sources local food. Love the design of the place. And the fact that they were playing nice soft jazz at a soft noise level was super - hard to find a place where you can actually carry on a conversation. Relaxing and superb cuisine!
My husband and I went with another couple. The 2 guys ordered Chicken Parmigiana. I order the Short Rib pasta and the other gal ordered the Duck pasta. I loved the Short Rib pasta. She loved the Duck pasta. The guys, unfortunately, were not thrilled with their chicken as it was very dry and in some cases difficult to cut. I think the chef needs to re-think the way that dish was cooked. BUT, other than that, it was great. Oh, and we ordered the Calamari appetizer which was shared between the other 3 (it was huge) and they all said it was fabulous. My husband said it was the best he had. And we shared the cheesecake dessert - also very delicious. And great wine selection, too! I actually loved this place. The only reason it got 4 stars instead of 5 was because of the chicken dish.
I have been here in the past, but it’s been a while. The menu has changed, as well as the chef. However, it was so amazing and delightful. A wonderful birthday dinner experience. Amazing staff and service as well. Would highly recommend. A true gem in TR.
Interesting variations of Italian cuisine. Great service & very casual atmosphere.
Wonderful dinner with friends. Two of us had chicken Parmesan which was different than any we’ve ever had. It was delicious! Unique flavors with capellini and the chicken rolled with cheese inside. Our server Jordan was knowledgeable and very responsive to our needs. Chef Dan came out and spoke to us! A great restaurant!
Superb! Delicious! Save room for dessert!!
Came in with 5 older friends...menu a little unusual for them but food was good and best part was on Tue night a table for 7 could all participate in conversation
Wonderful food, service and drinks. Well keep going back. ❤️
The food was great. The pricing was reasonable. Chef came out to our table and talked to us 2-3 times. Excellent place! Fresh vegetables from local garden, wonderful food. Great hidden secret restaurant in Travelers Rest. Food served quickly, not a long wait. Great atmosphere. Easy parking.
Great fried brussel sprouts! The chicken parmigiana was some of the best we have ever had! Wish the AC had been turned on. The doors were open but with all the people inside,it felt warm. Otherwise, Greta experience and Jordan was an excellent server!
Delicious and unique Farm to Table selections using seasonal vegetables and homemade pasta.
Had a superb dining experience at Rocket Surgery two nights ago. The calamari was perfectly prepared, with some peppers on top for a spicy kick. The Brussel sprouts were perfection, and even the side Caesar salad was exemplary in its freshness. The apple cake was divine. Everything was scrumptious, and this restaurant will now be my favorite dining spot in TR.
Great food great service I will be back again soon
We received a personal greeting from Executive Chef Daniel and the food was just superb! Daniel uses fresh local ingredients when he can and we appreciate his efforts to support local producers.
Pretty much ever time I go to rocket surgery
I know it’s going to be amazing. Of course this time it was amazing
Italian food at it's finest. the menu is excellent with great choices. i had the chicken parm and highly recommend that dish. we had zach as our waiter and he was awesome. helped us make the right choices....you have to try the desserts, we had the cannoli cheesecake and it was amazing...
WE WENT THERE FOR MY BIRTHDAY AND OUR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY.
WE TRIED THE CHICKEN OF THE WOODS (A MUSHROOM GROWN ON A TREE)
THE BEST APPETIZER WE EVER HAD. FIRST TIME TRYING IT. THE STAFF
WERE SO KIND AND EXPLAINED TO US ABOUT ALL THE FOOD THEY HAVE TO
OFFER. VERY QUITE AND INTIMATE EATERY. FOOD WAS AWESOME.
WE LOVE IT HERE.
Great pasta! And the house made burrata was a treat. Thoughtful wine and beer list. Will definitely return.
We arrived at 5;15 to an empty venue. Greeted warmly and offered any seating (no kidding).
Very personable host and server. Informed discussion regarding menu options, and timely, unrushed
service. Meals were properly prepared and we both thought excellent. By the time we left for the theater
at 6:30 the place was busy. Not sure the total review would/could be the same during peak times, but most people really speak highly of their experience here.
we are new to the area and Rocket Surgery has become our go to place for excellent food. The menu is constantly changing to show off the freshest ingredients available. Saturday we had two couples from our old Hendersonville neighborhood join us. "Chef Dan" took the time to visit our table and explain all the meals to everyone. That really helped with our friend's selections. That is not to say our server couldn't have done the same because she knows the menu well also. We all enjoyed our meals and will be back soon
