    We dined for at Rocket 21 for New Year's. This was our first time visiting the restaurant since its change from Ferneau. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful, however, it took well over an hour to get our entree. We were in no hurry because we had no other plans for the evening. Patrons who had plans to ring in the New Year elsewhere were likely late to the party. My appetizer was quite bland and needed some sort of sauce to bring the dish together. My entree was tasty, but the tiramisu came out frozen. Did we enjoy our evening? Yes. Was the food good? Yes, but not incredible nor worth the wait or the price. There are a number of fine dining locations in Little Rock I'd rather spend $150-$200 for a romantic dinner for two.

    This restaurant had all the potential to be good...friendly, attentive server, good atmosphere, etc. However, we had to wait over 1.5 hours for our meal. Our server gave us 1 complimentary glass for the wait...not 1 per person...just 1. The food was good; however, the temperature was cold. It was almost as if the food sat in the window for an extended period of time and got cold.

    The restaurant is lovely, but the food was hit and miss. Appetizers were excellent, but the dinner salads (as in salads intended to be eaten for dinner) were poor, and our party had 2 of the 3 offered. The other 2 entrees were good and very good. Service, unfortunately, was very slow, especially considering the restaurant was almost empty. It has the potential to be a great place, but just not quite there yet.

    Overall, the food was delicious except for the caeser salads which were nothing more than a bad chunks of iceberg lettuce with a touch of dressing. The food options for children are not what we had expected. We ordered mac & cheese for the kids but what they got was bowtie fettucini with white sauce. if you have kids, you know this is not what they like. Though the food was good, the prices were very high so I would only recommend this restaurant for special occasions.

    I had the duck, which was on the menu for the first time. The breast was good, but the quarter was fantastic! My husband's steak was good, and we both enjoyed the calamari appetizer. Definitely a special occasion place for us, but I would recommend to friends.

    Our food was very good, but I was disappointed that they were out of FOUR entrees at 6:00 on a Saturday night. No chicken piccata (although they did have chicken Marsala), no 14 oz ribeye, no short ribs, and no fish of the day. Several of us had to go to a plan b because of this.

    The filet was cooked perfect but the chef had a heavy hand with the pepper seasoning. When I expressed this to my waiter he replied that it states it is pepper on the menu. I realized this but it was an extreme amount of seasoning. The plate had no visual appeal, mashed potatoes and filet, nothing else on the plate. Needed a little decoration, I know they use edible flowers for decoration. Our plates had nothing There was only one other table at this time in the restaurant. We will go back but I was disappointed in the response about the seasoning and the lack of effort in presenting a more appealing plate.

    My husband and I decided to go to Twenty-One for his birthday after mulling over several wonderful restaurants. We were on the edge about it, but were delighted with our experience! Every morsel for food was AMAZING! My husband had a filet which was easily as good as or better than the top steak house in Little Rock (which I will leave unnamed). I had the fried chicken dinner with blue cheese mashed potatoes, collard greens, and black eyed peas; wow! We topped it off with peanut butter pie which was also fantastic! Also, the service was fantastic. Payne, our waiter, was very attentive and friendly without being stuffy - how refreshing! Twenty-One is now one of our ultimate favorites. We plan to go back next month for my birthday!

    My dinner was ok but my husband spinach salad was way over dressed to the point of being soup not salad. The waiter was great and took the cost off of our meal. When I told the manager the issue he gave us comp. dining to come back and try them again. We had a view of the kitchen and I have to say this is where the problem was. There were 3 chefs in black that I could see. They were leaning on counters and against the grills. The most activity was when they rang a bell for pickup. Which I thought was strange but.... With a new kitchen staff things should improve. I would try them again.

    I think the new ownership/management/chef are doing well. Our server was very good. I enjoyed the "Shrimp and Grits" which, contrary to the usual preparation, is not spicy at all. My wife enjoyed the duck breast. We were on our way to a concert, so couldn't spend much time perusing the wine list, but it seemed to be adequate with a nice variety of fairly priced wines.

    We were a party of 10. The Food was excellent the kitchen staff needs some help getting food served properly . They delivered our food one person at a time with 3-5 minutes apart.. The top 8 people decided to go ahead and eat it took another 15 to get the others there's . Not appropriate for a good restaurant , especially when they add gratuity of 20 percent. Want be back. But the Food was excellent.

    Had been referred by a friend. Had reservations for 4 but decided to eat in the bar because the bartender was great! Staff very attentive, drinks great, bone in ribeye is fantastic! Wine list good but a little high on the mark up. Will definately be a regular. Great place for patio dining when it cools off a bit. I give Rocket 21 4 3/4 stars out of 5.

    Our super-great waiter was very informative and attentive, but not hovering. He took our drink orders and got the calamari going while we looked at an early-bird menu. It was not skimpy, but had lots of choices, even if the restaurant was out of pollock that evening. Salmon with quinoa made a lovely plate with beets decorating the fish. The evening then had a big hit with Peanut Butter Pie - drizzled with chocolate. We'll go back soon !

    Great food. However the prices were a little too much for the ambience. Our server didn't pay much attention to me and my wife because he had a large table drinking bottle after bottle of wine. For those prices - you should be treated with respect no matter how many people are in your party. Outstanding dinner nonetheless. Only disappointing thing was the frozen cheesecake for desert.

    My husband and I wanted to try some place new and interesting for our 19th anniversary dinner. We selected Rocket 21 due to favorable reputation and great reviews. We could not have been happier! The service was perfect. The food was hot, fresh and delicious. My steak was cooked to a perfect medium rare. my husbands steak was over done. We politely told our server and they made a new one with new complaints and cooked perfectly. They even subtracted the cost from our bill. You must order a Chocolate Martini. It was WONDERFUL!The atmosphere was very trendy and in a hip Little Rock neighborhood. We will be going back soon!!!!

    We originally had high hopes for the evening. It took almost 45-50 min to get out meals, and our original waiter only checked on us three times. Which is less than par since we were there an hour and a half. We've been in before and our last experience was much better.

    This is a great new restaurant in a city filled with fine dining experiences. My husband, daughter and I had dinner there after a swim meet on May 10th and were all enthusiastic about our experience. The calamari appetizer was the best I've ever had, light crispy batter and tender meaty chunks. I am snobby about cocktails but the lemon drop martini did not disappoint. My husband's steak was tender and cooked just right, the mac and cheese side dish is definitely tasty. The ahi tuna was absolutely the best I've ever had anywhere. We finished with the tiramisu which was not as good as mine but worth the calories. The decor and ambiance is unique and interesting. Don't miss this restaurant!

    The Steak and lobster tail my wife and I had were both cooked to perfection. The calamari was fantastic for appetizer. The sides of Mac and cheese and smashed potatoes were excellent. Our waitress was a little quiet and reserved but noticed a few other serve staff members with a little more energy. One of the best meals I have had in Little Rock and might be our new favorite resteraunt. The steak was better than one of the owners other steak houses. Have already highly recommended to friends.
