Amazing every time!
We have dined at either Richardson's or Rokerij many dozens of times and this is the first time I have a negative comment about the food. The vegetables (brussel sprouts, and cauliflower were way over cooked to a point of being burned. I hope it was just a aberration. Every else was spectacular.
I have been wanting to visit the Rokerij for some time now. My fear was that I had built it up in my head too much setting the stage for disappointment, however it was everything I expected and more! Starting with the basement bar we enjoyed every moment of our evening. The cocktails were exceptional as was the food. Generous portions! Our server Sam was spunky and fun and made our evening even more enjoyable.
The service and food are great. The only negative is the noise. It's hard to maintain a conversation.
My sister’s birthday
Great Food. Large portions. Pricy but really good.
This was our first time dining out on Christmas Eve and based on this experience, we may need to make this an annual tradition! The meal was superb with great choices. The service was excellent as well. Looking forward to returning to try their other entrees.
It’s our favorite restaurant to visit during the holidays!
When we arrived the table cloth was obviously dirty (large stain from some spilt food from a previous guest). When we pointed it out to the hostess seating us her reply was “oh, do you want me to change it?” For the prices and reputation here, I would expect more. This isn’t a truck stop.
Overall the service was good, with a few exceptions. It wasn’t nearly as good as we remembered from a previous visit.
Love the ambiance of this place and with the food being so great, it always makes it a no brainer for get togethers with friends!
Our server was great but the food runner was rude. She did not have “time” for us. And, the people in the next booth were drunk and loud and management did nothing about them.
Had a reservation but were seated at the worst table back in the corner. Need to put something on the walls or blackboard. Hostess unable to move us but I will make sure we are not seated there again.
Always good especially when you get good service from Annie.
Unique delicious food. A valley treasure. A must try in Phoenix.
Always awesome dining experience. Our server Stephanie was excellent. We enjoy bringing our friends and family here .
Great food- HUGE portions so we should have split. Had to take a lot home.
Meal took quite awhile; so bring your patience- waiter apologized several times.
Food is amazing as always.
Very loud rude man drinking at the bar watching the football game, right by our table. He was very aggressive, used profanity and NOT one employee ever addressed it. We could not talk over his frequent outbursts and running commentary......the bar tender or manager should have addressed it, very upsetting for your other customers. On top of this service was horrible, I had to actually go find our waitress after being seated one hour to place our order. Service continued to be slow. We were hosting guests from out of town and were embarrassed by the whole evening.
It was my birthday which was on the reservation but not a word was mentioned by our server or the restaurant itself. Not even a mention about a birthday dessert. Plus when we got home we were charged for an app that was not ordered. I think these shortfalls were the servers fault. This was our 6th time there with family and or business associates and it was disappointing.
Rokerij Is not inexpensive, but is by far, the best value in the Valley. Fresh, hot, unique, individualized meals. Great service, too.
Great atmosphere - small but not crowded or stuffy. We ordered a couple of appetizers to share and waiter was very thoughtful to tell us that each came with three pieces and since there were four of us would we like him to add a fourth. That's good service! They had a large number of excellent evening entree specials that were in addition to the menu. Three of our party of four went with different specials and were not at all disappointed. Portions are huge but they are great about boxing the left-overs to take home. It had been a couple of years since we had been there and it was even better than we remembered - we'll be back.
Has been my favorite restaurant, but for the first time, I was a disappointed. They mixed up my reservation. The second bottle of red wine was very cold. My $50.00 bone in ribeye was THIN! I will not give up on my old time favorite, but........
Always enjoy. Drinks excellent. My husband had Rokerij steak. He loved it. I had scallops. Delicious. I love their crossover menu with Richardsons but enchos were way to spicy last time. I'll try again.
Such amazing food and service. But, it is a loud dining room. Totally worth it.
Had a family brunch with my 86 year-old mom. She has trouble hearing in loud places, so we were happy with the quieter nature of this place. Even with a table of 6, nothing was lost in our conversation. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The food for brunch was fantastic. Portions are VERY generous, so order with care.
It was fantastic Soutwest Delight! I will always refer my executives to Rockerji for a true experience!
The downstairs bar was nice- very casual and intimate. Drinks were great- liked the peach old fashioned. Steaks were great- and twice baked potato wonderful. Vegetables struggled- green beans perfectly cooked but cold- Brussels sprouts burned on outside but undercooked inside. Didn't have time for dessert. Will definitely come back. Table in back wasn't too loud.
The staff from the host, bartenders, and wait staff were fantastic. The Rokerij is always a favorite to celebrate my birthday because it seem to never disappoint. Drinks, appetizers, and main courses were tremendous. Megan our server made us feel welcome and truly made my birthday a memorable event.
Food was good. I don’t like to have to use a flashlight when at a restaurant or have to yell across a table to talk to people.
Amazing atmosphere and food. It's fairly expensive, but definitely worth it every once in a while.
Per usual the food was some of the best in the valley. More families/children dining which was unexpected and made for a louder experience than normal, but still well worth it.
Brunch was absolutely amazing! I can't remember his name but our server (a tall gentleman with blond hair) and his trainee were super knowledgable and patient with us. They helped us decide on our plates (it was our first time) and he even put a candle in our creme brûlée for my boyfriend's birthday. The food was DELICIOUS and I had literally the best steak and eggs of my life. The margaritas were perfect and they used house-made mix. We were seated downstairs at an intimate little table in the corner. I seriously couldn't ask for a better spot. The vibe is dark and romantic, we will absolutely be back!
Always come for the food and have never left disappointed. Service was off this visit as kitchen delivered food to several patrons who came in and ordered after us. Waiter never came by to advise and when questioned, did not offer any explanation or contrition. That being said, when food did finally arrive, it was great as usual.
First visit to celebrate our anniversary. Pleasantly surprised at how nice everything was. We arrived early, so we went downstairs to the cozy, romantic and dimly lit bar before being seated for a wonderful and tasty dinner.
We will be back and I highly recommend for a truly romantic experience.
We made our bi monthly visit and as always everything was perfect except for our server. First time we have ever had someone who was genuinely terrible at her job... hope she gets the hang of it though... she was very sweet.
Food is always excellent. Joel, our server, knows us by name and delivers our drinks without even having to ask what we want. This is our go-to restaurant for entertaining friends, celebrations and for once a week outings.
The food, service, and ambiance were wonderful.
We have been frequent patrons of Richards and Rokerij for a couple of decades now. On rare occasion do we ever get stuck with a below average server (usually because they don't have below average servers on staff). Unfortunately during this visit we were stuck with one and he was very disengaged and non-social. Staff will make or break the overall dinning experience which it did during this visit.
I love Rokerij! The service is unparalleled and the food and ambiance are great. This was the third time we dined here and it was consistently good. My husband and friends had the fish special, which they loved. I had the chili rellanos, which were fantastic; my only complaint/feedback is that the dish was way too salty. I loved the heat - physical and spicy - perfection!
The Rokerij is one of the most unique restaurants in Phoenix! The food is always perfect and the service is over the top!
