Delmonaco Ribeye was a big let down especially for the price. Service was decent but we were one of maybe four groups dining there on a Saturday evening!

This was my first time at Rocky River Grille in the Embassy Suites Charlotte-Concord to eat. I did not know it was in a hotel when I booked the table for two. There is a convention center attached to the hotel and it just so happens on this Saturday there is a gymnastic competition going on with a thousand little girls and their parents in the lobby, restaurants etc. so the noise level was very high and their was NO Parking available. We had arrived early and after driving around for a few minuets we found a spot to park, far away from the entrance. Once seated we had a nice table in a room they opened up for us. The waiter sas apologetic about the crowd and got out drink order. We ordered a Spinach Artichoke dip to share and Filet of beef and I ordered the Ribeye. Food was cooked just right and as the room filled up with the overflow the noise went up to a little girls giggling and adults getting snookered a little bit. Any other time it might have been worth it but this night is not one to remember.

The food was tasty but took forever to get to us. Granted there was a large group that came in just as we were seated and it put a burden on the kitchen. I ordered the delmonico steak cooked medium and it came a little charred. My husband’s French onion soup was fabulous, I highly recommend it.The bacon wrapped jalapeños were awesome and my spinach salad was very fresh and tasty. Our waiter was very nice, although I wish he had kept up with us a little bit more on why our food was so slow in coming. It would also have been much better ambience if they had turn down the overhead lights and lit the candles that were on the tables along with turning the heat up just a bit more, it was quite cold in there. My husband and I were there for our anniversary dinner. If the food and hadn’t been so good it would have been a miserable experience.

We booked this reservation for our 24th wedding anniversary and I said as much when I made it. However, not only was there NO mention of it at the restaurant, they tried to seat us at a square table literally feet away from the passing traffic. The ONLY reason I would recommend this restaurant is because it is the only option for “fine dining” in this area. If you don’t expect much, you won’t be disappointed. We did get to hear all about our server’s pregnancy. So at least it was special for her.

We where in Charlotte staying at the Embassy suites for my daughters 16th birthday. We reserved a table for 15 at the restaurant. When we arrived the staff was great getting us seated quickly. The waiter was excellent, singing to my daughter for her birthday and making everything great for her 16th birthday. The food was delicious and everything was prepared perfect for our guest. I would highly recommend this restaurant for casual dinning for any special event you may be planning.

The food was good, no real complaints there. The price was insanely expensive, $250 for drinks and dinner for four people; no appetizers, no dessert. Dining room was closed - had to eat in the bar paying an insane premium because it was past 5:00pm.

Overall, it was an OK experience. When our dinners came out, they appeared to have been under a heat lamp for a little bit of a time. For the price, the meal was just OK. I do not think I would visit them again.

My friend and I were cheerfully greeted by the hostess and shown to our table. Our server, Tammy, came to our table in a matter of minutes. She was very welcoming and cheerful, explained the specials, and took our drink order (gin & tonic for my friend, margarita for me). Tammy brought our drinks, and took our food order (French onion soup, delmonico steak w/blue cheese, au gratin potatoes, and asparagus for my friend, and spinach salad, pork chop w/honey garlic sauce, au gratin potatoes, and asparagus for me). We enjoyed our drinks, one of the best margaritas I've had. My friend really enjoyed the soup, but the serving could have been larger, and my spinach salad was very large, and delicious! Both of our proteins were seasoned and cooked to perfection, potatoes were very flavorful, and the baby asparagus were wonderfully grilled. We shared the ciabatta bread pudding, and it was also very good and large enough for two people. I would definitely return to Rocky River Grille.

We came for our Anniversary. Waitress was wonderful. Table/floor was dirty. Salad (soggy and bad lettuce) was not pleasant nor the salmon (overlooked) The chef tried to hard with making a design in the plate with the Ceaser dressing. (Made the entire dish overrated) waitress was WONDERFUL.

We were there to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. He really enjoyed himself. The food was good. The appetizer came out warm and was delicious. The meal was good. The banana bread pudding was also good. The only reservation I had was that our waitress did not come back to our table to check on our drinks. In fact, I had to ask another waiter to find her for us! Not good!

The place was empty but for one other couple the entire time we were there. We both ordered the "Surf and Turf", which consisted of a 6oz. steak, 4 boiled jumbo shrimp, and we chose the sides of garlic carrots and mashed potatoes. The steak had an unpleasant taste and was overdone, and the carrots were nearly raw. In addition, for some reason they were playing two different styles of music from different speakers, which was annoying. We definitely won't be returning to this restaurant.
