    They seated us a a table with a bad view, so we asked to be moved. The wine menu and entree menus were never removed from the table. The wedge salad was excellent, the roasted chicken was boring. A glass of Rodney Strong Chardonnay was $12 and the glass was served 2” full. What a ripoff. Won’t go again.

    I ordered the 18 oz pork chop and augratin potatoes. Pork chop was outstanding, best I ever had. I had to send the potatoes back they where undercooked. I was given the mashed potatoes instead they where delicious. My wife ordered the Buffalo steak medium and had to send it back twice..way to bloody. Server and Manager where very nice and apologized for the inconvenience. It was our third time eating there and first time having issues.

    Beautiful restaurant and wonderful service. Drinks in the bar were great (happy hour Moscow mules). For dinner the Brussel sprouts and the salmon we ordered were very good. My New York strip was tasty and cooked as ordered but not tender.

    Very elegant place for dinner with a beautiful view. We had a drink at the bar before dinner and all the bartenders were excellent as well as the drinks they made. Our dinners were prepared as asked. All the food was delicious. We had plenty to take back to our room and enjoyed it the next day at home. Since it was our anniversary they brought us a dessert to share which was really nice. We topped the night off with a nightcap at the bar unfortunately they were getting ready to close at 10:35 so we felt somewhat rushed but was an excellent night.

    What a beautiful back drop of Corpus Christi for a restaurant!!! Upscale experience you can’t find anywhere else in Corpus! Our waiter Nick, and assistant Josh, were professional and very friendly. Nick offered to take our picture for my husband’s 70th birthday. He even got a free dessert! The food was amazing! I highly recommend trying this fabulous restaurant! 5 stars!

    Well, this was our second visit to RoTB&G and we were excited to go again for an anniversary dinner and drinks. We arrived early, checked in with the hostess and seated ourselves at the bar. Aaron was our friendly and professional bartender that had our drink choices to us within minutes. In, fact the entire bar crew are friendly, eager to help and attentive. Very enjoyable time spent. We were escorted to our table by one of the windows and Wes introduced himself to us as our server for the night. He was competent, professional and brought us some of the best bread in Texas. We ordered the wedge salad, the chateaubriand for two, medium, which comes with chef's potatoes, carrots and asparagus. Our dinner was presented to us after a short waiting period. This is where the descent into not good began. The young man attempted to slice the filet with a knife that evidently, could not make its way through a stick of soft butter. I mentioned to him that the knife needed to be sharpened, or at least run on the steel, but he continued the process. Uneven slices, some almost ripped from the cut, but we went ahead and sampled. The meat was indeed of good quality and was done to our liking. Unfortunately, the potatoes were almost cold, and the carrots and asparagus were practically raw. Wes took the carrots back for a correction and brought them back. Now they were shriveled and too well done. We mentioned our disfavor to Wes and he said he would let chef know. Our first visit to the RoTB&G was close to perfect but this time just wasn't up to our expectations and standards. I doubt that we will return anytime soon. I would still recommend the place to someone who hasn't been but would also not recommend the chateaubriand choice. Going for individual pieces of filet or ribeye with separate vegetables might be the better option.
