Our first time here. We ate outside on a Sunday evening. Nice choices on the menu. Will return to try other items- and bring guests.

Matt our waiter was helpful in suggesting choices. He helped ensure my elderly parents were able to get appropriate portions on their plates. He kept our glasses topped off. Andcorivuded a second dressing serving when we seniors split a salad waiting on the young ones to show up. Great job.

Our server was an excellent young professional cheerful lady. Unfortunately the food quality was lacking. My husband didn't finish his salmon. I gave my meal a B as the lobster ravioli was great but the cream sauce and scallops were mediocre. Two members of our party had hamburgers and french fries and they said they were fishy smelling - oil? I don't know. Desserts were excellent!

The second time to Red Rocks Cafe it was awesome. The atmosphere and staff was perfect. Now I do must say that I wish they would have bread to eat while you wait on your food. I would definitely be back and recommend my friends to stop by and eat

The food was good. I ordered a small glass of wine but the server brought the larger glass. She let me know her mistake but asked if I wanted her to charge the lower price or leave it. Very awkward and inappropriate. Would’ve been nice if she simply acknowledged, apologized and assured me, the customer, would only be charged for what I ordered and not feel obligated to pay for her mistakes. She also got my vegetarian daughter in laws order wrong and brought her pasta with meat. The man who served it took care of it right away though.

Outdoor seating on sunny or cool days is simply perfect. Food is very good all across this extensive menu. It’s not overly fancy but priced right. Staff and manager are trying hard to get you to come back, good service throughout. Valet parking is nice feature at night when this Village/shopping district is busy. Five layer chocolate cake is amazing. Portions are very well sized to get you full but not stuffed. Bar section is fun. Sunday Brunch menu is small but invludes all you usually would order in a Brunch. Great location and great for casual and fancy occasions.

We dined outside to escape the noise. Service was average and 1 meal of 5 was missed and arrived 15 minutes late. Food was just average. Doubt we will go back.

Everyone was very gracious; however, my Pittsburgh Salad was disappointing ( especially having growing near Pittsburgh. The flank steak was almost inedible. The waitress noticed that I didn’t eat it and asked about. The salad and fries were very good. The entree was comped.

Service was alright. Appetizers were pretty good. The entrees were both disappointing. Chicken saltimbocca was undercooked and floury (it almost tasted like it was coated in wallpaper paste). Angel hair pasta was mushy and bland. Vegetables were unseasoned. Lobster ravioli was bland, but my husband was hungry so he ate it. Server came over, asked if I wanted my meal wrapped (I’d taken about two bites of chicken) and when I told her no, took my plate and never inquired if anything was wrong with my meal. It was loud and she was busy so I didn’t press further. We had a gift card so I didn’t make a fuss but I left hungry and disappointed. The atmosphere was nice enough, loud but tolerable. We visit Birkdale Village at least twice a month and usually over look Red Rocks, and we will probably continue to do so unfortunately.

I really love this really by the quick service you receive soon as you walk into the restaurant. What surprised me they open the doors for you as you enter. You think of high class and they make you feel like. You guys will have my business always. Keep up the good work.

We had the oriental chicken salad, calamari, and the seafood salad. The salads were a good meal size and delicious. The calamari almost seemed like imitation and was very chewy. Our server was very polite, friendly, and efficient. We ate in the outside dining area which was relaxing and comfortable even though the temperature was in the 90’s. We frequently eat at this restaurant and have always been happy with our food and service.

Had a group of 9 for dinner. Everything excellent. Recommend take advantage of the complimentary valet parking at this restaurant as parking can be a bit of a bear on a busy weekend.

Excellent wait staff, very attentive to make sure you enjoy your visit and meal. Wonderfully, we did not feel rushed, and yet waiter was always available when we had a question. Food is the best I have ever had in the Charlotte Huntersville area. Very comfortable booth seating and privacy. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AND MORE!!!

Food and service were mediocre at best. We ordered calamari and mussels. Mussels were ok - nothing special. The calamari, however, was horrible. I took one bite and refused to eat anymore. I should have advised my boyfriend to stop but he insisted it tasted fine to him. Now he’s been in the bathroom all night because of it. We ordered salmon special for appetizer and the shrimp and scallop pasta dish. I set my expectations pretty low bc of the nasty apps. Neither were terrible but the shrimp and scallops both tasted frozen. This place is like a glorified TGIFs or Chili’s. Save your money and eat at home. Experience was terrible from beginning to end.
