We envisioned a steakhouse and lounge unlike any other. A revolutionary steakhouse, in both cuisine and design, which would challenge the strict traditions of American steakhouses. The result is Rococo Steak.

The menu has a larger selection of small steaks, including unique grass-fed options, more playful appetizers, and craveable side dishes. The hip, contemporary design conveys intimacy and sensuality, yet provides a spirited atmosphere for socializing.

We are committed to utilizing the freshest ingredients of the season. Our menu may differ on the evening of your dinner.

Overall the food was great however, there were a couple of things that lead to a less than steller review...
1) The first sat us at a table that had not been bused
2) When moved to another table we requested the booth at the window and were told that it was reserved. No one ever sat at that table nor did they ever sit anyone near our sections, the reastaurtant was dead so I can't understand why they wouldn't let us have that table.
3)Our waitress started out by asking if we would like Sparkling or flat water, we should of normal water is just fine and she then brings a bottle of flat water. When I asked "are we going to have to pay for that" She made me feel like I was crazy because I specified flat water. I guess I need to be more specific and say tap water. Once she took the water away she made a commit like "ok are you feeling better after that water situation" HUH?!?
The food however was excellent!! Best steak I have had in a very long time!!

WOW is all I can say about this place! Everything we had was delicious.. lump crab and Lobster bisque for appetizers... 10oz Fillet, seasoned vegetables, mashed potatoes and cream corn for our meal and it was simply amazing! The staff is great. Wine list is great with a lot of selection. The GM Kevin even stopped at our table to introduce himself and check on our experience. I highly recommend this gem!!! 5 STARS!!!!!!

HONEYMOON DINNER
It was our last night of our honeymoon in St. Pete and Sean, our waiter asked us if it was a special occasion and out came 2 glasses of champagne. Such a nice touch! Then it was on to the best Korean Duck BBQ appetizer (almost ordered another for my main!) and a tuna burger that was sushi grade tuna. My husband ordered a steak and was in heaven. The truffle fries were great, not overpowering and the whipped potatoes were delicious. From beginning to end the service was great, the food was lovely and the atmosphere was nice, quiet where you could talk. We had gone to another restaurant for our after wedding party (small) and the noise was deafening! Ask about the history of the building. There's also a private wine room.

Excellent service and food! Started with the tuna tartare which was paired with mushrooms instead of the typical avocado and the flavor combo was beautiful-almost earthy. I had the New York strip and added the blue cheese brûlée on top, adding a nice funkiness to the flavor and brought out a nutty note to the steak. My boyfriend had the dry-aged ribeye. Both steaks were cooked to perfection (we ordered them medium rare). We split the vegetable of the day, which was roasted cauliflower, the mushrooms, and the whipped potatoes, which all complimented the steaks so well. Our server was very professional and knowledgeable about the menu and wines. We ordered a bottle of Pinot noir, but they ended up not having it so our server recommended a 2016 Lone Oak Ranch Pinot Noir and it was absolutely amazing! If you are ever looking for a restaurant to fulfill your fine dining urges or a birthday or anniversary, this is the place! I would love to go back.

This is our go to special occasion fine dining restaurant. Sadly, the quality and overall experience has diminished significantly. The food, service and overall experience were not up to Rococo’s previous reputation nor our previous visits. Not sure why, but everything seems just slightly above ordinary. New management? New chef? Not sure, but certainly no longer in St Petersburg’s top tier.

It was a special family reunion and we ordered the porter house...cooked poorly and the filet mignon...cookies poorly. Out of common courtesy it was "fixed" but still came out wrong again. We just paid our bill n left. Not likely to return or refer a friend...

Steak was one of the BEST I’ve ever had! A beautiful cut of meat cooked to perfection.
The only reason I didn’t give it a Five is because they should not have seasoned such a nice piece of steak.
Clean, quiet, nice wine list and excellent, excellent service!
Thanks

I told the restaurant that this was to celebrate the adoption of my child. Nothing, and I mean nothing, was said to her in congratulatory fashion. The waiter frequently disappeared for so long that we were without drinks and sat over dirty plates for 15 minutes. Overall it was terrible and I am so disappointed.

Coming from Texas, we are very hard to please on the steakhouse front, let’s just say Rococo Steak delivers 10 fold. The seafood is some of the best we’ve had and the steak, well let’s just say, go. For. It.
Their wine list is second to none and their service is unbeatable. Make sure you ask for Carly and of course say hello to Kevin the GM. Once you talk to Kevin, you will understand right away why this place is amazing.
It is on my “must go” list every time I visit St Pete.

Excellent meat preparation- the Ribeye was a little overcooked. Great sides- spinach and cauliflower- not sure what the hype is about regarding Parmesan fries.
Appetizer Burrata underwhelming- Arugula and burrata- missing tomato flavor and juice
Our server was MIA at times.

We will definitely return.

We went here for birthday meal for my girlfriend. Meal was excellent, service was exceptional. The smoked old fashion was a nice start, crab cakes was an excellent choice for an appetizer and the 7oz grass-fed filet was the perfect size. I would recommend this place for any special occasion or even a business dinner.
