Roe has seamlessly managed to have a full bar with a sports bar feel combined with an elegant fine dining area with live music.

Our server Chase was exceptional helping my 9 year old daughter discern which items would appeal to her and customizing to her taste! He was incredibly attuned and attentive and yet he managed to be equally attuned to all his customers. Impressive and mad skills!

The food was delicious. After having had mediocre meals during our visit to Long Beach, this meal, ambience and service was the highlight of our trip. We hope to bring back my husband and son for such a lovely dining experience.

Roe has a high energy vibe but also serves great food, focus is on fish dishes and sushi. Preparations are great. Salmon, swordfish and scallops were great, as were their soups. Place is a bit pricey, especially on the wines, so be prepared to spend to enjoy.

Although the food was not bad (the oysters were pretty fresh) the overall price for the amount of food is not worth it. We got seated in the back corner by the bar and the service was lackluster. Also there was a group of 4 that were trying to get bar seating that just stood by our table and the staff did not tell them to go away although they were crowding our table and ruining our dining experience.

Would I come again, maybe but I would not jump at the opportunity.

This was our third visit, but the first on a weekend. While we generally prefer the quieter weeknights, the vibrant atmosphere was birthday for a special occasion. The best part of the evening was our server, Max, who patiently addressed an allergy matter and ensured we had a great meal.

I reserved a table for 15. Though many arrivals were late, our server was friendly and accommodating. They offered a children's menu with crayons. There was also a live guitarist. (The volume was very high, and at times this made table talk kinda difficult.) Overall, a superb experience.

I was really excited to try this restaurant so I chose to go for my birthday. The ambiance was great and service was good which is highly important to me. However, I was extremely disappointed in the food especially considering the price. The potato wedge appetizers were tasty and my daughter’s bean and cheese burrito was pretty delicious; but the seabass meal I ate and the other meal of steak was flavorless and expensive for the quality. I was extremely surprised as it seemed to have good reviews. Honestly, I wouldn’t go back again.

Previously to dining in for a birthday celebration recently, I had a work event at Roe and fell in love with everything about the restaurant. However on my most recent visit the experience wasn’t as great. Our waiter wasn’t attentive to the needs of the table. A guest in the party asked for more of a particular condiment and it didn’t come until the meal was done. Along with water no being refilled. The vegan plate was was a small portion of vegetables and legumes which didn’t seem to be fairly priced. The overall service was very slow and portions were small for the pricings of the plates.

A friend and I went to dinner here on a Monday about 5pm. The service was excellent and the food very good. We sat outside on a small patio area which was very nice, but you are right on Second Street and at times the street noise was very distracting, especially the motorcycles! As already stated the food was very good, but even the Happy Hour specials were more than I would pay elsewhere for the same thing. My friend who lives in the area thinks the prices reflect the high cost of doing business in this area and has seen a lot of good restaurants come and go because of this. Overall a good place to eat, but for easy conversation you might want to sit further into the restaurant.

Roe was a recommendation of a friend as a central location so I had no knowledge or expectations. It was a great place and the four of us had food and cocktails for a reasonable amount sitting outside on the patio watching the world go by. I would recommend.

So, the place has great atmosphere and good service and drinks. However, when it came to the food, we all found it to be very underwhelming. The presentation and portion was nice and the menu had some exciting options, including an O.K. selection of Oysters, yet the plates lacked any real flavor profile. It's a shame because it's a nice place to eat, I just have no desire to head back in. Another reviewer compared Roe to Connie and Teds in WeHo....I think not.

The tables you get with open table are not the best ones. For example, the restaurant will be almost empty but they will give you the high top at the far back corner of the restaurant which was at the end of the bar where the bar backer is, and a ton of flies due to all the citrus prep cutting at the bar.

I don't want to blame the server, he was nice but the experience was a bit disappointing. Some of the dishes took quite a long time to come out. We ended up canceling one dish and asked if the other missing dish was put in for the kitchen staff. The rest of the table finished their meals and the one missing dish still hadn't arrived, we were going to just cancel it but the waiter said it was almost done. It finally came out but the steak was medium rare when it was ordered medium. All of the other dishes tasted great though.

The food was EXCELLENT. The service was good. The only thing that was a little off were the drinks. Martini did not taste right, nor did it have an olive. We had to go to the bar to ask for the garnishes that should be coming with classic cocktail drinks. Other than that, everything was great!
