Rojo Mexican Bistro - Novi is an unconventional Mexican Bistro serving you a dining experience in an upbeat, casual atmosphere. The most popular order at Rojo is its table side guacamole, custom-made to your preference. Of course you can order all your favorites like fajitas, quesadilla, tacos and burritos. However, it is highly recommended that you order the much sought after Chile Relleno, which is a roasted poblano pepper filled with melted cheese and topped with tomato sauce and even more cheese. You can add ground beef or BBQ pork for a nominal fee to kick it up a notch. Or try the Seafood Cazuela complete with calamari, shrimp, mussels, scallops and Mahi Mahi, all sautéed in a chile-infused lobster stock.
This is our 2nd time eating at this establishment. The food is delicious and the waitstaff is attentive. Only thing I would change is by them having a kids menu, separate from the adult menu. This would make kids feel welcome there.
Enjoyed great food, drink and service, while having a great time with my lovely wife.
Tried this place for the first time, will definitely be back. Excellent service, very attentive, and the food was very delicious.
The food was expensive and not as good as much cheaper Mexican restaurants. The refried beans felt like they came right out of the fridge without being heated, the rice was hard, and the frozen margarita was not blended enough to drink. We had no silverware or plates when we received our appetizer, and the waiter never waited around after delivering to see if we needed anything else. We were constantly having to call him back to the table.
We went to Rojo because my son likes it. It was okay, just okay. Food was good but not great. The service was good but not great. I'd go back but it wouldn't be my first choice.
My husband and I took my mom here for Valentine's Day . . . good food, good company and good price. We'll be back!
The service was perfect, the food was great, and so were the drinks. Good place to go if you need to get in and out in a hurry. The food came quickly and it was pretty busy for a Saturday night.
If tables are not available for same day then opentable/ Rojo should not accept reservations. We liked food and service was ok but had to wait 35 min even after we made reservations. Had a little one and she was cranky as it had passed her dinner time.
I tend to forget to review places I eat at often. This is a great place with very good food and service. Very consistent.
Old location was much better. Tables are smaller, closer together, restaurant is louder. Red pillars inside seem left over from Chinese restaurant. Food is good but atmosphere is lacking.
My wife and I have been to this restaurant several times, and always found it to be unique and enjoyable. This experience made us really sad the way the restaurant has gone downhill so quickly. The food, the service and the atmosphere have all deteriorated to the point that is was just a bad mexican chain place - no better than all the others. Too bad.
Great place for a Night out with friends!!
Service was bad, food mediocre, waiter finally brought our chips and salsa after our meals were served. Nachos were not good at all, hardly any cheese and my husband's burrito tasted like it was from yesterday. We will not be going back.
The menu choices were somewhat limited for a Mexican restaurant. The server was not very attentive.
Service was surprisingly slow as there were not a lot of people in the restaurant. But, the food was very good!!!
It had been a while since I had eaten at Rojo and I was not disappointed. The food was awesome and the service was great. We went at 7pm on a Friday and were there less than an hour. The enchilada and chimichanga were perfect. Will be back for sure.
Our second visit to Rojo and we were not disappointed. Our first venture here was on date night so this time we brought the kids and grandparents. The tableside guacamole was not as good as the first time we tried it - there was something missing, but it was still enjoyable. I was impressed that they were willing to substitute shredded beef for no extra charge on my Two Story tacos (would have been worth the upcharge). If you are bringing fussy teenagers be sure to have them review ingredients carefully. My son ordered the California Burrito without onions or pico de galo but forgot to subtract the black beans too. It's a good thing they were generous with the nachos otherwise he would have been a hungry boy. No criticism towards Rojo - the ingredients were clearly listed and I thought it looked pretty good.
Well-prepared Mexican-American dishes and appetizers, nicely presented, along with a wide range of cocktails, sangria and beers. Most popular are the special nights, such as Taco Tuesdays (which are busy) and Thursdays when appetizers and jumbo margaritas are $5. Service is generally friendly and prompt. Noise level is above average which can make it difficult to converse but adds to the fun and liveliness.
Our hotel staff recommended ROJO to us. Food was great! The tableside guacamole presentation was a favorite. Too bad the restaurant is 160 miles from our home.
We have been looking for food Mexican food since moving back to Michigan 5-years ago. Mexican Town is great but going downtown is a pain. Rojo was a very pleasant find ,- far surpassed the local offerings in Canton (definitely worth the drive to Novi).
