Seafood

About

East Coast style fresh seafood, killer pasta and a huge variety of traditional favorites from the New England area. Simple, with a focus on fresh seafood. Rococo is known for the freshness of their seafood, including overnight deliveries of specialties like steamer clams and non-farm raised salmon. But of course, Rococo is best known for having the best darn Crab Cake around, a lightly baked collection of Maryland Lump crab and secret ingredients. No frozen then fried hockey puck here.

The Clam Chowder (say “Chowda” when ordering) is always a crowd pleaser along with exotic dishes such as Hawaiian Poke, Escargot and Rococo Cookies which are savory (not sweet) bites of various flavors.

There’s a lot of chophouse fare are Rococo as well. Steaks, Pork and Duck are always on the menu. Because Rococo is chef-driven, the menu changes seasonally and multiple daily features are the norm. Rococo also has Vegan and Gluten-Free options.

Have loved Rococo in the past, but # of guests has dropped considerably. Started w/ the calamari, which was soggy. Next had the Love Salad which was good. Wife had the lobster mac and cheese, which the lobster had a twang to it. Beer taps weren’t working well, which left the beer flat and also with an odor.

We visited as our 9th anniversary dinner out. It was perfect. The ambiance was quiet, subtle and romantic. The staff very friendly, courteous and accommodating to our keto diet modifications to our dinner. The filet mignon was superior in taste with a melt in your mouth texture. We highly recommend Rococo for that dinner with a special someone.

My husband and I had dinner at Rococco for our anniversary. The crab cake was possibly the best crab cake I’ve had in my life! Everything was delicious! Bryan was an excellent server. We were sad they didn’t have the Creme brûlée - I bet it’s amazing - but it’s something to look forward to next time!

We finally ventured out to a restaurant, everyone working was wearing a mask and tables are socially distanced. The drinks and food were amazing as always. Best crab cake in town, mussels were delish and we shared the chicken piccata which was also very good. It was good to see one of our favorite bartenders as well.

I took my family to Sunday brunch on 8/2/20 to celebrate my mom's birthday. Rococo never disappoints. The whole table ordered from the brunch menu. Everyone raved about the Crepes, Eggs Benedict, and French Toast. We'll be back soon.

My husband and I wanted to try a restaurant we had never been too. After searching Google, we found Rococo on Penn and chose to give them a try due to proximity to our hotel. The location has an industrial chic feel and the staff is beyond courteous. We were seated and immediately given water and TIME to peruse the menu (that rarely happens). Our server returned with the specials and took our drink order and appetizer order. After approximately 10 minutes, she returned and asked about our dinner order. To my delight, my "filthy" martini was made to perfection, which rarely occurs. My husband had Oysters on the half shell for an appetizer and mussels in fettuccini (entree) and I had a Caprese Filet... we were beyond impressed. The shellfish was succulent and the pasta was perfectly al dente. We will definitely return when in Oklahoma City. This hidden gem was a delightfully rare find!

My wife and I met on our first date at Rococo on Penn and last night we had a dinner date there to celebrate our third anniversary and our first dinner out together since our first baby was born. Everyone from the bartender to the waitstaff and hostess were incredible, even surprising us with a card congratulating us (which we sadly forgot on the table) and picked up our dessert. The food was as always just as incredible as ever.

Very disappointing. We've always enjoyed the excellent service and food. We have not been out to dinner since March (covid 19) and decided to take our family of 6. We were seated directly behind hostess stand. Hostess could hear our conversations. I'm not sure why we were seated in that spot because restaurant was empty.

Appetizers took 30 minutes. Server waited for 15 minutes after we finished apps to take our order. Food took an hour. There were probably 4 other tables in entire restaurant. $38 scallop/mushroom risotto. There were 3 small scallops. No one was impressed with their food and my side of brussel sprouts were very under cooked. None of us wanted to send anything back because of the delay. I don't know what was up the night we were there (Saturday), but I was very disappointed. We got there at 6:30 and didn't leave until 9:00. Terrible! Bruce Rhinehardt should be informed. He would not stand for this type of service or meal preparation from his kitchen.

This is the best of fine dining!!!

Set in a business casual atmosphere. You can count on a varied menu of the world's best cuisines, with prices quite modest, considering the quality and quantity of your order. I have never ordered anything that wasn't first class-top rated cuisine.

If you come to Rococo, expect the best, and I mean the best service. If it isn't on your table, it's because you didn't let the waitstaff know. Regular and irregular menu options make Rococo a perfect gathering place for a group with varying dinner needs.
Take my word, you will not regret having a lovely meal outing at Rococos!!!!

It was fantastic. I like getting out for brunch once in awhile. I have been here before for brunch,and as always it was lovely. I just wish they would make a salsa (the pico was good, not the same) everything was beautiful and perfect though. Will definitely come again. Our server was fantastic and informative. Overall pretty good!

I found this place on Open Table. It was a quiet place. The crab cakes were fantastic !!!!!!
I had the chicken Parmesan and it was good. My only complaint was the smell of smoke when were arrived. We were seated in the bar area and that was the reason. They had a time limit on the tables, but I don't know if this is something they do just for Valentines Day wknd or all the time.

The crab cake is all it’s made out to be. Duck I wouldn’t order again but it was fine. Risotto was good not incredible. Go somewhere else for desert, chocolate cake thing was trash. It’s quiet, romantic, and service was great.

Food was great however it took us 2 hrs to get our food. We were seated 15 minutes later than our reservation time. The couple next to us received their meal at no charge in a carry out bag due to the length of time they had waited for their food.

It took almost 2 hours to get our food. It was busy, but we did not leave until 10:00.

Our waitress did not help with the situation, making jokes about the wait.

We ordered steaks, and they were just not good. No seasoning, and not cooked to the correct temperature requested.

The ambiance and wine is great, but everything else was not.

I highly doubt I come back.

Best part of dinner was the salad. My wife’s filet was bland. First bite of the crab cake was breading. Osso Bucco was flavorful on the outside. Mushrooms and Sweet Onions were very good.

I expect a restaurant to be slow on Valentine's Day. I also expect the wait staff to be busy. Unfortunately, that was just the beginning of our experience at Rococo. The waiter was rarely seen, and when he did emerge from the kitchen, he did, at most, one thing - maybe take an order, or fill some glasses, before he quickly retreated back to the kitchen. We saw other tables filled after we arrived, but served sooner. Our waiter never offered additional drinks after we finished our initial cocktails. He never checked back up on us. In fact, I had to flag him down just to get the ticket at the end of the night.

All of this would have been forgivable if the food had been fantastic. It wasn't. I had the grilled yellowfin tuna, and although it looked beautiful, it was terribly overcooked. The inside was dry and the fish was almost flavorless. The saffron rice was very nice, and thankfully provided the moisture that was robbed from the fish. Had our waiter been more diligent at our table, especially in filling our glasses, I might have not had as much time to ruminate on the poor quality and high prices of the food.

The restaurant itself is beautiful and intimate. With good service and properly cooked food, it would be a frequent date spot. Unfortunately, we were there for two hours, were only offered cocktails after we'd been there 15 minutes, and still hadn't seen a dessert menu. Not wanting to waste the remainder of our night waiting for dessert, we flagged down the waiter to get our check and make a quick escape.

I don't see us coming back. Sorry guys, you had your shot. If I'm going to spend over $100 on a date meal, I'll go to Vast.

Nice quiet restaurant with a good atmosphere. The service was good and we were able to sit and enjoy a meal without being hovered over. The fish and chips were great. Grilled salmon with as small for the price and the Parmesan was fine.

Appetizers were wonderful. Entrees were bad. I ordered a medium steak and got a medium well steak that was lukewarm. Wife ordered scallops and pasta and the pasta was overcooked. Not worth the$200 bill.

Dinner was good, the service friendly, and our reservations were promptly acknowledged. We were seated in short order. The restaurant is a little dated, which is either charming or off-putting depending on whether you think that era of styling is your cup of tea. Dinner was a bit slow to arrive, which was either surprising (because I ordered from the day’s specials) or not surprising (because it was Valentines Day). We had a glass of house Malbec, which was quite tasty. It was a busy night, but the patrons were respectful and the noise level remained fairly low. I felt the price of dinner was commensurate with the quality of food. The only thing that left us disappointed was the quality of the bread. For the quality and presentation of our meals, the bread struck both of us as chintzy. That said, we would definitely go to Rococo on Penn again.

We went for Valentine's Day, it was our first time here; they seemed a little overwhelmed from a service standpoint; it appeared managers were helping to clear tables and bring out food. A wait staff person took our water bottle and never brought it back. Food (once it arrived)was very good except for my wife's broccolini being cold, crab cake and mushroom risotto were excellent. Probably best for a quiet occasion like an anniversary, wouldn't recommend it on days when likely to be busier.

We had a 4:30 V Day reservation. We didn't want to fight the crowds so we went early. Steak was as amazing! Crab cake was good! Shrimp scampi was good but the shrimp had the peel on it. Why butterfly the shrimp and steam it if it you don't peel it? Linguine & marina sauce that came with the shrimp was cold. Service was incredible slow. Disappointing.

I had the duck. I’ve had it many times, usually delicious. The skin on the pan seared breast was undercooked and rubbery. The confit leg was so over-cooked that it literally crumbled under my fork. The lobster bisque tasted like gumbo and the lobster pieces were noticeably undercooked. My husband hated the $22 crab cake appetizer...it tasted of nutmeg. I can’t imagine that it actually contained nutmeg, but every bite smelled like pie. My husband loved the filet, the mashed potatoes were delicious. The cheesecake dessert special was an obvious no-bake recipe, but it was tasty nevertheless. I hope it was an off night...a 4:30 reso on Valentines Day should have meant getting the A team...and before the rush hits even...but maybe. I’d recommend trying it out, but with s warning. The food is too expensive to be this inconsistent. I used to adore this place...
