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.

Service and atmosphere were exceptional. All questions about the menu were answered. The sides were slightly salty, but the steaks were cooked perfectly. Overall excellent experience!

Couldn’t have had a better experience. Four of us dined for a business dinner. Service was top shelf with plenty of attention, but not too much. Steaks were perfect as was the wine. Carly was our server. Insist on her when you book.

Brought my dad here for father’s day and we were both incredibly pleased. It was exactly what I was hoping it would be. Above all else, the service was phenomenal. For our first visit here it felt completely individualized, which made the night special. We were greeted by kind staff and employees, and our server Carly was full of knowledge and so friendly. She was exceptional, as well as all of the other servers/assistants/food runners who helped make our dining experience a great one. Cannot wait to come back and try everything else on the menu. 10/10 would recommend

We celebrated my sister's birthday there and it was wonderful! I have been to so many restaurants that the only ones that REALLY stand out are those which deliver great food, drinks and especially service. Rococo definitely hits the spot every time. We had Aaron who took such great care of us, as did the rest of the team, from entry to exit. Love this place!

Food was great, on par with other top steakhouses in the area. Lobster was fantastic, and the butcher block appetizer was superb. The service was a little slow, but otherwise the meal was very nice. The decor inside reminds me of Alice in Wonderland, too.

The decor was beautiful, and each space was intimate for good conversation. The service was top notch. Food was very good. Because it was our anniversary, we were treated to a dessert of our choice on the house! Very gracious.

This was our second visit to Rococo's. The food was as good as we expected based on our first visit. We were slightly disappointed in the service. The service wasn't poor. It's just that on our first visit, our server was extraordinary. Our server this time didn't seem happy. Maybe he was having a rough day, so it's okay. We'll definitely be back though.

The steaks were very good, but the asparagus was boring and the lobster mac 'n cheese had only 6 small chunks of lobster on the top of a very large portion of mac 'n cheese. Sadly, the cheese on it was not impressive at all, it tasted like doctored up Velveeta, not my first choice. Between the price of the steaks and the lackluster sides it was a terrible value compared to a competitor like Bern's, for example. We had the duck appetizer, which was incredible and the service was spectacular. Despite the good parts, I didn't feel it was an experience worth $240 (including a 20% tip). My husband had two Goose & tonics, I had a very nice $9 glass of pinot grigio, we had the $13 duck appetizer, the filet mignon and a ribeye w/ truffle butter (a $9 upgrade which you truly only need to order on one steak because it's big enough for two steaks), and we shared the sides of asparagus and lobster mac 'n cheese. They were large asparagus that were PEELED, I'm guessing tossed in a bit of olive oil and BARELY touched the grill. There was really no flavor or detectable seasoning on them and I'm a big fan of asparagus. My husband ordered his filet mignon rare and it was not as rare as he would have liked and my ribeye was cooked to a nice medium rare as I ordered, but it was charred a bit more than I would have liked, many bites were like licking the grill. :P

We went for my husband's 60th birthday. He loves steak but is very picky. He said his steak was melting in his mouth and the asparagus was perfect. Our rose wine was delicious. The lobster bisque was also excellent. Pricey but worth it for a special occasion.

We (two couples) enjoy trying restaurants new to us. We picked Rococo based upon positive online reviews and were so pleased with our choice! Rococo is a charming restaurant in an old building, once a funeral home! The food was great - I’ll get to that, but oh! How nice it is for seniors to be able to converse easily at a very comfortable table in a quiet room! Three of us are fans of octopus and shared a very tasty chargrilled appetizer with pickled onions. We all enjoyed salads, but the star was their version of the classic wedge - made extra special with bacon jam! We had two delicious ribeyes, a filet, and lamb chops perfectly cooked to our different preferences. My husband’s twice baked potatoes were enough for four to share. The wine list was excellent and competitively priced. Service was very good. The manager stopped by and we really enjoyed a short conversation with him. He’s very enthusiastic and no doubt set the tone for the wonderful experience we had. My only disappointment was my dessert- a chocolate flourless torte... I order them everywhere. It was very dry and a sad end to my evening. I did not have an opportunity to share my thoughts. My husband’s key lime pie, however, was special! Rococo is very pricey, but we all agreed we really enjoyed it and plan to return.

For my wife’s birthday, they gave us a beautiful, private booth. The cocktails were inventive and expertly prepared. Service, including wine, was knowledgeable, prompt and personable but unobtrusive. The food was of high quality and cooked perfectly. The space is luxurious, with ample space between tables and high ceilings. A top-flight experience for St. Petersburg.

The food is outstanding. What I was disappointed with was the scant amount of lobster in the lobster pasta. For this reason, I would not order it again. The crab cake was awesome. The octopus was delicious, too. My husband had the pork chop and my grandson had a fillet which were both outstanding. Everything was ala carte, but I think the compound butters should be free or much less expensive.

We had a great dinner with our son who was visiting from college.
My husband said the lamb was probably the best he ever had and the filet as well as the scallops were outstanding.
It's fairly pricey, but they have a great wine list and although some things were a la carte, the side portions were good sized and you have the option of half a side order.

My cousins were visiting from Norway and I wanted to show them a truly great place for dinner. The waiter, Heath who is one of the bartenders, and the sommelier were excellent in providing recommendations for meals and wine . Lobster bisque was divine and the different meats we chose were prepared to perfection (filet mignon and ribeye) and wine (after providing us 3 different wines to taste) was a perfect pairing with our meat. A superb evening as usual at Rococo restaurant at my favorite table in the bar area. I also love the bar seating and all the bartenders there. Thank you.

Steak was good . I got the grass fed filet & added the Au Poivre sc added . Then tenderloin was just that , nice and tender ! The sauce was good but not memorable. We got the lobster Mac & cheese , no lobster in it though . However , the manager definitely made up for it by bringing me a half lobster tail !! 👍🏻

We were seated immediately and our server came to us quickly. Don answered any questions we had on the menu and wine choices. Food service was handled in a timely manner allowing time between each course. My mom's filet went back for a little more cooking but all food and dessert were delicious. It was noisy where we were sitting due to a private party in a room close by for a celebration. The staff tried their best to keep the door closed. We could have requested to be moved but didn't. There was plenty of room with it being a Sunday night. My mom and I enjoyed the special evening!
