I was not greeted nor seated by a host/hostess. We went and sat at the bar. We waited for 8 minutes before having to flag down a girl to get water. After that she disappeared for 5 minutes. Flagged down a guy and got menus. After that he disappeared. The girl came back and started talking to some guy at the end of the bar. I asked if we could get drinks and order food and she said " i'm not working the bar, I'm just standing here." The guy reappeared and finally got us drinks and took our order. He never asked us how things were. Served me the bloody mary but didn't tell me where the garnish bar was until I asked him about getting some green olives. This had to be one of the worst service experiences I have ever had.

This was our first time at Rockit for brunch, though we’ve been many times for dinner. It was delightful. There was a guitarist playing very mellow music, which created a lovely ambiance. The omelettes were perfectly cooked and I appreciated having a salad with mine and the coffee was delicious. We will come back.

The avocado toast is delicious ... good place for a casual brunch and not expensive at all.

The food and service were good. Menu is creative and burgers great. Prices are decent.


However, half of the beers we selected were out. Also, we were sat next to a crazy party that kept screaming and burping. Then, an elder man was getting into it with some younger women, causing a scene. I wouldn’t expect them to sit us in the bar area to eat, but that’s where we ended up. This was at 7:45, so not even drunk o’clock.

Food - great
Service - good
Ambiance - not the best

Somewhat loud. A bit dark. Hamburger was excellent!

I am in charge of organizing an event for 110 sales people in Chicago in late Feb. and someone suggested we hold an evening event at Rockit. Figured before I contact them about a group event, I would do some secret shopping.

We were early for our 745pm reservation, but since they were only about 80% full we were seated right away. Good start. We waited 11 mins before our waiter John came to the table. He took our drink order, one Bloody Mary (no garnish) and one glass of Cab. 9 more minutes pass, not seen our waiter, but my Bloody Mary arrives (2 olives and 2 lemon wedges), but no glass of wine. 7 mins later I flag another staff member down to find John, he gets John and he then goes and gets the glass of wine.

Another 20 mins pass, I track down another staff member and John comes and asks if we are ready to order. Really? I ask for our bill and went across the street. It is Chicago - lots of choices.

So we drop $165 at another restaurant and I realize the value of secret shopping. $15K budget for a Tuesday night event in Feb., guess who isn’t getting that business. No second chances.

Went there to watch the game. Not the greatest place to view a sporting event but the food and atmosphere were good

The food was mediocre. I ordered a jalapeño margarita and that was good. The service was fine but the food was just disappointing. I have been here before and remember the food being better.

For a burger place, they messed up my wife's burger twice. This was long after it took way too long for us to enter our order and get our food. The rest of us had salads which were good, but the burger fiasco was troubling.

Lots of confusion at front. We were there for the first time and went up the stairs. The guy kept saying it’s a private party and I said we had a reservation. He didn’t help us figure out we in the wrong area for dining. Then, the host took our name passed us off to a lady who should 4 in our party of 6 to a terrible long high top with a post in the way. We said no, we’d rather have a better spot. We waited at least 20 min to find out the remaining two in our party were already seated at a table for six as we had reserved. From where we were standing, we could not see them. Terrible communication at front of house.

Wonderful food and great service! The menus were in vinyl record cases, which was super fun, and we were pleasantly surprised to hear live acoustic music during our Saturday brunch! We loved it and will definitely be back!!
