Grilled steaks and chops cooked over pecan wood fires, fresh fish, daily blackboard specials, small plate appetizers and an extensive wine by the glass selection. Dimly lit with eclectic music, sit at the upstairs bar and watch your food being prepared, dine in our over-sized booths or make your way downstairs and hang at the cellar bar. The Rokerij is truly a feast for your senses. Reservations are for parties of four or more.

While I wouldn't call this a typical New Mexican menu, there are many traditional items on the menu...with a twist, if you want. For example, enchiladas are standard NM fare, but smoked turkey as a filling choice was an unexpected twist. Loved my enchilada trio with an egg on top and smothered Christmas style.

The last time we were at Richardson’s also was not a good experience. We use to Alaska bring our off town friends to rokerji for the great food and ambience. It just is not as good as it used to be. We won’t be going back to either.

Love, Love, Love this place! Seth at the bar is fabulous and the staff is always so nice and fun. The food here is always on point no matter what you order. Our favorites are the bacon wrapped jalepenos, asparagus frites and skewers on the appetizer menu. The Rokerij steak is simply amazing as is the Taos Tenderloin. Right now their summer salads are excellent as well. Thank you Rokerij for always giving us excellent service and absolutely delicious meal choices. Shout out to the valet service as well ~ those guys hustle even in the heat!

It was a special date for celebrating a year together. I left a see note on the reservation. They had a quaint little table set up for us in a private corner of the downstairs lounge area. Nice touch. You made me look good. I have been here a dozen times before but this was a first for my girlfriend. I always forget that ordering an appetizer here means being too full for dinner. Totally worth it. The bacon wrapped shrimp were unbelievable. Her pork adobo was cooked to perfection and incredibly well seasoned. My prime rib portion was overly generous and very tasty. The portions are huge so be prepared to bring home leftovers for the next few meals. The girlfriend was very happy and discovered a new favorite restaurant and I got to revisit one of mine top picks. Congratulations on keeping up amazing food and service after all of these years.

The food was good, as always. However, the restaurant’s “4 or more” policy is disturbing.

We had a reservation for 4 people at the Rokerij last night. About 30 minutes before arriving, I received a message from one of our party that she had to work late and wouldn’t be able to make it to the restaurant in time for our reservation. However, she asked that we order food to go for her. The hostess seated us, and our server immediately appeared at the table to ask about the 4th person in our party. I told her why we would only be 3 at the table, and that we would be ordering a meal to go for the 4th person. She told us that the restaurant’s policy is 4 or more people per table—it didn’t matter that we were still ordering 4 meals. She then backed off and said that since the restaurant wasn’t busy, we could stay.

We have supported Rokerij and Richardson’s through good and bad times. However, we were made to feel very unwelcome, and will not be back to either restaurant regardless of the number of people in our party. The greedy “4 or more” policy is not customer-friendly.

I brought my Father here for Father's Day in anticipation of a nice high quality dinner.

It was anything but that. The service was great once we were seated however more into the evening the.disaster began.

We were waiting 30 minutes in between seeing our server. It was hard to get refills on drinks, ordering cocktails and appetizers.

When our food came several things were very wrong. Our steaks were charred. (They had to send it back to the chef). The service was super duper slow and the staff were non empathetic to the situation.

Overall the worst possible experience for a Father's Day dinner.

Food was outstanding, however the noise level was extreme. Our party of 4 were seated in a comfortable booth upstairs. Half way through dinner the booth next to us was extended with a table to accommodate 8-9 people. That’s when the noise level became extreme and we had to shout to hear ourselves. We would recommend this restaurant to friends with the noise level caveat.

It was wonderful, but we had a reservation and then they called and said there was a problem and could we be out by 7 (545 reservation). We were celebrating Father’s Day. Our food came out before we barely started our salad. It was 708 and they asked us to leave. $550 tab. Not cool. It wants our fault that reservations were messed up.

It was NOT what we expected AT ALL. We had five for dinner at 8:30 and the chicken chimayo had sat for so long it had a hard crust on in it. The prime rib was not even prime rib and done well. The NY strip was the only entree cooked to our order and everything took 30 minutes to arrive. Drinks, appetizers and entrees. It was a bummer because we had raved about this place to friends and then it all went wrong. The prices were ridiculous for the cuts of meat served and quality of cooking.

There was a rubber glove in my salad. A full rubber glove in my cesar salad. Got $50 comped off but was celebrating my mother in laws birthday and still had to by for it even though I found a full glove in my salad. I love this restaurant but really killed the vibe on a special day

Unfortunately my skewers came out and the chicken was raw. They did remake the dish, however, by the time they got to the table my mom had really finished eating. I was disappointed, that’s not how I expected my Mother’s Day meal to be. They did offer me a complimentary side salad in the interim. But that barely seemed to suffice. The servers were very friendly and apologetic.
