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.

We were under the impression that this was a "fine dining" establishment based on reviews.
This establishment can improve in many areas and does not meet the criteria for that designation.

An excellent, creative menu, with excellent variety despite an extensive steak selection, and somewhat 'tony' pricing. One faux pas with our meal: the waitress noticed an error in my wife's dinner just as she arrived at our table with the food. My meal cooled somewhat as we waited for her to bring out the corrected dish. I know I would have enjoyed my meal more, if only it hadn't grown too cold as I was finishing. Unfortunate. A small point (to some): excellent coffee!

Restaurant is remodeled and very well done. We had a group of 10 and all the food we ordered were fantastic. The Skewers and rack of lamb was especially tasty. The salmon was some of the best I've tasted. All in the historic Hotel Baker!!!

Great service, food, and overall experience. The new renovations they made to the place is nice. It has a cozy, romantic feel to it. We came at the right time for live piano music which added to the ambiance. The server was efficient and prompt with all of our requests and questions.

I had the NY Strip with the Yukon Smashed Potatoes and Asparagus and my girlfriend had the Filet with the same sides. We both had a side of mushrooms to go with our steaks. Before this, we each had the Lumpia and then two Wedges for each of us. Everything was as expected, tasted great, and met our taste for the night.

Overall, happy to see that the ROX City Grill is still doing great in St. Charles. We will be back again one day soon!

Considering the good reviews on Open Table, I was expecting a good meal. The food was genuinely terrible, for the most part. Scallops and risotto were pretty good, filet mignon was just OK, and truffle fries were good. Oysters Rockefeller and crab cake appetizers were not good at all, swordfish Oscar was downright awful (bad hollandaise and crab flakes from a can), and Asian barbecue skewers had a funky sauce. The restaurant was not crowded, so no excuse there.

Too much good competition in the area for this poor quality food. We went for the Hotel Baker ambiance, but it clearly was not worth the terro be meal.

We didn't expect this! Bid on a basket that included a gift certificate to Rox Grill. Decor has been updated and is sleek and modern. Crab cake app was out of this world! Dinner entrees were creative and flavorful. As we were finishing our dinner, piano player started and the bar was a party including all generations present. Singing and dancing and friendly fun. We'll be back soon!

We hadn't been to Rox City in a few years and decided to dine there again based on mostly positive reviews we found online. We discovered that the restaurant and bar/lounge had been nicely renovated and the menu featured some interesting new items - appetizers & entrees. The online reviews indicated a price range of $$, but we think the range is closer to $$$. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. The wine pours were not. Service was average.

Need to have a little more variety on the new menu...I'd been there before and I thought there were some affordable options (a hamburger or something lighter) on the menu. We were grabbing a quick bite before the Arcada show.

Great food and great service. Located in the heart of Downtown St. Charles in the Hotel Baker.
Within walking distance to concerts, shopping, and bars. This restaurant is relaxing and a great place for a drink or for a terrific meal. Not a crowded noisy bar.

Rox is always an exceptional dining experience. The food never fails to impress. Short rib falls of the bone, steak is perfectly done and the vegetables have a glaze that has the perfect blend of sweet, savory and a little spice.
If you want a quiet dinner go a little early. Once the music starts on Friday nights it gets louder from the bar and becomes harder to have a conversation.

It took quite a long time for the server to come to the table. The server was unaware of all the specials. We were told an item on the menu had not been available for awhile since it was out of season. The ambiance was lacking. The restaurant has a very cold feeling and the piped in pod music is annoying. The parking is also terrible. Thete is no handicap parking nearby. In spite of all these negative things, the food was very good! It was so good , that I would return to the restaurant again.

Rox is truly worth the drive to the Fox River Valley and perfect spot for locals. The steak prep is as good( or better) than the big Chicago steak houses. The fish and seafood is top notch - fresh and creatively prepared. The tortilla soup is a " to die for". It's not the gloppy thick version but full of broth and rich flavor. For dessert I'd recommend the beignets served with three dipping sauces .....delicious! We eat here fairly often and have never had a meal or service that wasn't just ideal. I hope more locals continue to go and support this historic gem. BTW the updated interior looks great and emits a nice warm glow.
