Steakhouse
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.

Went in with high expectations, was warmly greeted by the front desk. Got seated in a very dark corner and service was not great, server seemed nervous or awkward. Appetizer took a while to come out. We were celebrating an birthday so by the end of the dinner I was expecting our server to bring a birthday dessert for my friend but instead he already brought the check so I didn’t even bother. So that was disappointing.

They do not serve bread, something I consider essential to have with my martini. The decor will disappoint anyone who frequents the classic steakhouses. The steak was very good but not 100% as it should be.

Service was perfect. Waiter was personable and attentive. Steaks, on the other hand were disappointing. One grass fed filet and one regular filet. Both were like cutting shoe leather. Neither came out as ordered and overcooked. Desserts were disappointing as well. Key lime desert was bitter and served on a graham cracker hockey puck. Carrot cake was thick as a brick and Panna Cotta was nothing to write home about.
This was on the heels of the waiter telling Ian they just upgraded their beef. Perhaps time to upgrade the chef?
I used to love Rococo. Not sure I’d go back .

Exceptional steak, and top shelf wines. Sommelier was knowledgeable and helpful...due to COVID requirements the spacing hurt the ambience. Otherwise, a perfect 10

Great steakhouse (dry aged cowboy ribeye is definitely recommended and a great value) - the sides are large enough for single portion or order a few to share. Flavor was great and price was decent for great steaks compared to other steakhouses such as Charley's and Bern's. I don't think wine but their wine room and selection was impressive. The restaurant is a beautiful building that used to be a funeral home so it has an interesting history. Plenty of metered parking in front of the restaurant (free after certain hours) and I believe they do have valet service as well. The lighting was a bit dim and the only complaint is that they do not serve complimentary bread prior to your meal.

Best steak house in the Tampa/St Pete area.

Bring all the tables back! They provide more than enough protection and the diners at this restaurant know better than to be stupid.

Good food and great service. The dry aged cowboy ribeye was very lean and tender and cooked well. The au poivre and blue cheese butter sauces compliment the steak. The roast chicken was very flavorful. The butcher block with meats and cheeses as an appetizer was excellent. The lobster bisque soup was perfect. To finish off the meal, we had the panecotta which was unique. Overall we were impressed with this place.

Visited the area for my husband’s 50th birthday. The ambience was nice and the service was good; however, the food was average. The lobster bisque and lamb chops were good, but the lobster mac and cheese was awful. It was a shell pasta with more of a red sauce giving you a spaghetti/ravioli type feel, and they were undercooked. There’s nothing worse than an uncooked nasty pasta with very few pieces of lobster. This will not be a place I plan to return to if I come back to visit the Tampa area.

The service was amazing. Our waiter suggested items we would not have thought of and they were amazing. It is a slower dinning experience but not in a bad way. Food and drink were very good.

Rococo is our FAVORITE! A gem in Tampa Bay. Service, food, drinks and ambiance are 5 star! They also do special events. Steak is out of the world but even more so, the sides (unlike many steakhouses) are to die for! Reserve now: you won’t regret it!

This was our 3rd time. We were put in the back near wine cellar. It smells a little musty and seems empty and dark. Need flowers on the table and perhaps more art. Food is always good, but when you pay $42 for an 8oz filet and sides are alacarte I’d at least like some bread on the table. I know times are tough for restaurants and that’s why we’re trying to patronize, but this was Christmas Eve and I guess I had hoped the restaurant would go a little further this time...

Highly recommend Rococo Steak. First time here and was our Family holiday dinner. We had early time reservation so we were the only customers for awhile. The servers were all very attentive, friendly, helpful. We told our main waiter Joseph that we want to go at a "relaxing" pace and he was very accommodating. We had appetizers, salads, entrées, and desserts and of course drinks!! The food was all very very delicious and prepared perfectly. This is a high-end restaurant and the prices are too - but we knew that going there. But the portions were actually a bit more than we expected as often the higher the price, the smaller it is. But we were all quite pleasantly stuffed when done!! I would go there again for a special occasion dinner. We walked out without taking one of our boxed desserts and they were calling me before we even pulled away to tell us!!

The food is outrageously priced. 4 of us 4 glasses (mediocre wine) of wine, 3 jack and Coke’s 4 steaks no seafood 2 sides 2 salads 1 dessert $430 before tip. 1200 chop in St Pete beach kicks their butt for pricing and quality. Sola Wine bistro way better value.
No need to spend the money there.

Food was good but a little pricy for what it was. Service was horrible. At least eight different staff members at table. Too many hands in the pot. Plates all delivered to wrong people, not sure we even got the specific steaks we ordered. Waiter was super condescending and rude. Manager did try to rectify situation with reduced pricing but damage already done. Not the service I'd expect when paying $50 per steak. Bar staff was wonderful. Dont waste your time making reservations, hostesses are too busy looking at their nails to remember you are present. Will not go back, too many other better steak restaurants. If you do try it, do yourself a favor and just sit at the bar
