The food was excellent as usual. The steaks are some of the best around. For the wine geeks, Tuesdays are the day we usually go because it is "no corkage fee" night. That makes it worth it as the steaks are pricey. Service is very attentive. Atmosphere is quiet enough to talk. Wonderful, cozy place that is great for a romantic dinner or a nice conversation with friends. They do have live music on weekends that makes the place much louder. The bar gets pretty active on weekends...and corkage is $25 on Saturdays.

Steaks are always excellent and the smashed yukon gold potatoes are a thing of beauty. Every bite was excellent. Only weakness was the ceasar salad was which still good but not up to their usual. Service is always attentive. This is an expensive dinner but it is always so good we like to go fairly frequently. Tuesdays are corkage free nights which helps on the expense and it is seldom busy on weeknights. Good for us but not so much for them. If they don't have their live music playing in the bar, it is also quiet enough that you can enjoy a nice conversation. Weekends are much busier and much louder. Small, cozy dining area in historic hotel with nice ambiance. Highly recommended.

We went here for my birthday dinner this year.. The night started off bad, due to no parking.. I thought they had a valet, they do not. My husband dropped me off at the door a few minutes before our reservation.. he finally got back about 30 minutes later!! We are not familiar with parking in STC, he ending parking about 5 blocks away, after driving around for quite some time.

Service started off slow, but it was obvious they were trying .. it wasn't like people were standing around. It appeared as though they were short handed for the night. The server was very busy, so after about 10 minutes the hostess at least took our drink order.

Even with all that.. the food was excellent, I had a filet and my husband and the sea bass. Both entree's were amazing.

I would certainly go back, but most likely on a week night in warmer weather , due to the parking situation!

Our second time at Rox City in the historic Baker Hotel. We made a detour on our visit to Chicago to eat there as we live 300 miles away. Reception was excellent. Food was very good and the service was good, although when there were times it was difficult to get our server's attention, other staff members were quick to assist. Will definitely go again when we travel to Chicago.
