The wife had the swordfish, which didn't come with a starch, a bit odd but she was okay with it, it came with grilled asparagus and a corn maque choux (a little like creamed corn but not so creamy), I guess that's how I would describe it, very tasty. I had the Kapalua rib-eye steak, served with jasmine rice and green beans. The steak was supposed to be cooked to medium-rare but it was a little more like medium but marinated so well that it was very tender. Sorry, we didn't have room for desserts nor appetizers, so I can't comment on those dishes. Would like to explore more of the menu on a future visit. Service was very attentive but not so overbearing.

Every time I've come here, I've been please with the food. The cocktails are also quite good. We've had problems, however, with it being super-crowded. While a reservation takes care of getting a table, the service (especially for drinks) suffered. I know we would have ordered a few more drinks had it not taken 15-20 minutes for our drink orders. I know it's tough when there are multiple concerts/events near the venue--seems they might be able to plan better for that? I would still recommend the place--just prepare to wait.

Traffic was terrible and we got delayed. I called and they were able to move our reservation to 15 minutes later, even though no reservations looked to be available on Open Table. They were super nice about it. Got right in when we did finally arrive. It was very busy because it was right before a Laker game. Took a while to get our drinks, but moved right along after that.

Rock' Fish is our favorite place to eat prior to any event at Staples Center. It's nice that you can make reservations in advance so that you're not waiting 45 min to 1 hr for a table. LA Live restaurants can get extremely busy so reservations really help and the food at Rock'n Fish is consistently very good.

Called on my reservation to indicate I would be late due to LA traffic. Host said I had a grace period of 15 minutes and if later it would depend on availability. He also said they were pretty booked so could be tough. I arrived 30 minutes late so I checked. The women hostess saw my reservation and sat me, saying not that busy. I found it strange that earlier the gentleman indicated opposite and was somewhat rude. Having worked in the industry for nearly 20 years, I understand managing the floor, however, I also understand the value of phone skills and customer service. I will be hard pressed to return to this restaurant as a refund of the treatment AND manner for which it was handled!!! Train your people on phone skills!!!!

Rokin' Fish at LA Live is a great place for a delicious meal. The decor is charming and gives an "Old World" feel. I especially loved that they had framed photos from the LA Kings Stanly Cup wins included in their decor. I even took a couple of pictures. The service is excellent and I rarely had to wait for anything. The manager greeting my table and our food server was literally standing right behind him, waiting to take our drink order. Our food came out super fast and was hot. Everything tasted great. My only slight negative was that my fish was a little chewier than I had expected. I enjoyed my time at Rockin' Fish LA Live and look forward to visiting this restaurant again.

It wasn't horrible but ordered my steak medium and it came medium well. Steak served on top of fries which made fries soggy. Friend said his sword fish was a little dry and overdone but not too bad. Server never asked if we wanted refills on drinks and was unattentive. Overall the amount and quality of food was not worth the money.

After being seated at the table, we did not receive menus or get our drink order taken for at least 10 minutes. It seemed very unorganized. My dinner partner got a food allergy reaction and we proceeded to Staple Center to receive medical treatment.

We were able to attend the game, but the food and service at dinner was not exceptional.

This was my first time dining at Rock'N Fish and it was amazing! My friend and I were attending a concert that started at 7:30 so, I made a dinner reservation for 5:15. We were a few minutes late, but we got seated right away and, that was after standing in a short line of people requesting a table. I definitely recommend making a reservation if you dine at 5pm or later.

The food was soooooo good! The sourdough bread served before our meal....yessss! Warm, soft on the inside, crisp on the outside; we couldn't stop eating it! We started off with Cesar salad and clam chowder, which my friend said was delicious! Our main entrees were popcorn shrimp and the beer battered fish and chips, which was coated in a crisp batter, and the fish was light and tender.... yaaaaasss! The coleslaw was deliciously unique; not your standard coleslaw.

We will definitely be back for another dining experience. We live about 40 minutes east of LA, and this restaurant is worth a drive just enjoy a good meal!

Had a reservation for 5 pm before heading into the L.A. Kings game. We were seated immediately and waited on shortly after that.
Food was delicious and very filling. Both of us had the Maui Maui and loved it.

Was not impressed with their filet mignon. It was not seasoned or flavored at all. The side dishes were not anything special either. The Hurricane I ordered had a very strong chemical tasting citrus kick to it. Rock’N Fish overall did not meet my expectations. There seafood may be a better option if I ever go back. But definitely not worth the $$$ rating.

We had a fabulous dinner here! The food was delicious, the margarita was one of the best I've had, and the vibe of the restaurant was lively but we didn't have to raise voices to be heard across the table. We arrived for our reservation 15min early and they were able to seat us right away. Our server, Rico, was the coolest, very knowledgeable about the menu and gave us good recommendations. We go to Laker games often, so we're stoked to have another good pre-dinner option!!
