Rocky River Grille Ratings and Reviews
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.
This was a special anniversary dinner for my husband and I and we were both so pleased. Our server could not have been more attentive and the food was delicious. We were visiting the area but will definitely come back if we find ourselves in the area 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.
We went to the Rocky River Grille for the Charlotte Queens Feast with two other couples. We should have gotten a clue, when we were the only ones in the restaurant. The service was decent, but the food was awful. The chef undercooked and overcooked several of the entrees steak/lamb, which had to be sent back three times to be re-done. My steak was over done and tasteless. In the end, the restaurant discounted only the one person ($5) who had to send their lamb back three times! I will never return to eat here again. What a waste of $70!
Did not know this restaurant was located inside a major chain hotel when I made our reservation but went in with an open mind inspite of that. Service was good but the food was very average. This should be enough info to guide you...if not go taste and judge for yourself.
Have been here twice. Although it's out of the way (live in South Charlotte), it's worth a stop by if you're in the Concord area. Better than most of the chain restaurants near the mall. The food we have had (Delmonico steak, sea bass, stuffed chicken, French onion soup) were all tasty. It's a fair price for a hotel. Sometimes they offer a buffet (for $20, I think), but on this night there were not enough guests to warrant it. In fact, the main dining room had the lights out and was empty so we had to sit in the bar area, but it's not too bad, and they offer a supplemental menu with less expensive items such as sandwiches, burgers, etc. Plenty of TVs for sports, but a fairly quiet atmosphere. About half of the occupied tables (around 6 tables) had parents with children so it is kid-friendly.
