Great location and ambience. Food options were good and the fish tacos delicious. It’s a casual atmosphere and can get loud and busy. Highly recommend!

We sat outside - they did a nice job of creating space on the street that felt safe and cozy with heat lamps, barriers on the street side and artificial grass on the ground. Tacos were amazing, as was the guacamole and chips. We also got a bottle of wine white wine that was delicious. Service was great. Just wished they had asked if we wanted dessert before they presented us with the bill. I would definitely go back. Of all the restaurants in the area, they seemed to do the best job with following COVID protocols and physical distancing for the tables.

My husband and I went to The Rockefeller for Saturday brunch this weekend and it did not disappoint. We ordered the chicken & waffles, the avocado toast, and a side of truffle Parmesan fries. All were delicious and the service was on point. I recommend this place!

From being greeted upon arrival with a sense of urgency and awareness. To making us feel welcomed valued and pleased with our choice for a birthday brunch. Celeste was great in all aspects exceeding our expectations not only of the customer service but of the restaurant itself. The food was amazing we did not wait long after putting our order in not to say the drinks with a little help from Celeste on choosing from the lArge drink selection they had.

Outstanding food and a great selection. Their chicken pot pie is the best on earth and the Burger is to die for. I could go there multiple times and still enjoy. The menu is very reasonably priced and the service is excellent.

The outdoor dining was in a nice area, although since we were a table of 2 we felt slightly uncomfortable being so close to the sidewalk during covid. However, the staff was wearing masks and plastic face shields which made us feel a bit more uncomfortable. The sangria was great, as was the Rockefeller blonde beer. The truffle fries were *incredible*, we ate every last one. Wish we had room for dessert to try the chocolate chip cookie, but it gives us a reason to come back!

Love this place. They took great care of us and didn’t rush us. It was our first time out at a restaurant in 4 months and we just wanted to hang out and relax. It was exactly what we needed. Great beers - they let you taste before you choose. Good good and great sized portions.
