Mostly, a great night out. The food, drinks, and Jen, our server, were incredible. There was a delay with our reservation, which is the reason for a less than stellar rating.
Great atmosphere, service was very attentive and friendly, the shrimp with chili oil was amazing!
This is one of the best places for small plates in the des moines metro and the service is spectacular every time
Our waiter was great! i can’t remember her name, but she was blonde and very accommodating to the picky eaters at our table. This was their first time eating at a higher end place and I think it was a great first experience.
The overall feel of the place was very cool, kind of rustic, with a Wild West painting slideshow on the TVs, but then they had very loud 2000s pop music playing. I get down to that as much as the next guy, but the juxtaposition seemed a little strange. The wrong food also kept getting delivered to us (it all looked and smelled amazing, towards the end we almost accepted it), but at the end our server made sure our bill was all good and it was no skin off our noses. The food was fantastic, as were the cocktails. Overall a very enjoyable night.
Deconstructed Nachos were excellent
Each item was presented separately on the platter Beautiful & Delicious
Homemade Bread Pudding the Very BEST!!!!
Lovely service, fine food, & great company. Well done. 😉
The arugula and goat cheese flat bread is great with the chardonnay wine listed on the chalk board. Also recommend the pork medallions and/or the scallops -- both served with a poblano corn.
Roca is always a great choice! Delicious food, great service, and wonderful atmosphere!
Yummy shared plates and the drinks are amazing!! Definitely going back soon!
I absolutely loved RoCa. It had great ambiance, and was the perfect place to go to for a date night!
Very nice restaurant all the personnel were great. Waitress was top notch.
Highly recommend this restaurant. John was a great bartender! The other server was also great, calling me by name when sitting me as well as helping clear my plate even though I wasn’t in her section.
Enjoyed the Brussel sprouts and flatbread.
We definitely return on future business trips.
Have been here pre-Covid before and they have kept the service friendly and attentive and the food good. Didn’t feel crowded but I also came here before the dinner rush. Would come here again.
Couldn’t recommend this place enough for a date. Great service, great cocktails and drink menu, great food. Kudos to the staff for for a great evening!
Delicious food and great service. The portions are the right size which means small compared to most restaurants!
I like the emphasis on lots of small plates to share and sample.
Everything was excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great food & wonderful service! Our server was knowledgeable and gave great recommendations. Will be back next week :-)
Amazing first time experience! Food was amazing and came out quickly. Our server Jenn C was great!! Drinks were great as well. Would definitely go back to try more food.
The food was great and loved all the wine options. Our waitress was outstanding and always there to check in on us! The atmosphere is very romantic and charming. I would recommend this to anyone!
Very happy with the restaurant, nice place with a good menu and good mixed drinks.
The food and drinks were good, but service was lacking.
Great service and drinks. Love the atmosphere.
Amazing as always. Never any complaints. I do wish the romaine salad had more dressing though.
The hardest part about RoCA is deciding what to order!
We had a great evening at RoCA. We always enjoy the ambiance, rustic and eclectic. The service was excellent. The food selections are diverse, serve quickly and were delicious. They offer a wide variety of beverages including smoke infused whiskey. Deserts are also delicious!
Nice, casual place for drinks, good food in downtown Des Moines
Love all of the shared plates, everything is so fresh and full of flavor. Also one of the best drink menus in Des Moines!
They have really good drinks. I would come back for drinks but their food I was not all that impressed with.
The ambiance and service were great. Definitely seems like a fun place to grab a few drinks with friends however, the food was definitely not worth the price in my opinion.
We loved our server, Jen! She provided excellent recommendations on dishes and cocktails - making our meals extraordinary!
Great food, really enjoyed the shared plates and wonderful craft cocktails, made for a great anniversary date night
Great atmosphere. Great drinks. Great service. The half portions tasted great but were small.
Great service paired with awesome food made for a great date night!
Service was great. Food was outstanding
Always enjoyable ... recommended!!
Especially for select small plates. Bar is excellent.
Great service from our waitress!
The food was outstanding as usual! We did have the best server we’ve ever had there (her name was Jen). She went above and beyond to make recommendations on food and drinks! We will make sure to request her in the future!! She definitely added to our dining experience.
Food was amazing! Service was phenomenal! Drinks were delicious! A great place for a date!
Bar drinks are great. Salmon main course was too dry. Tenderloin was very good.
