This is the first time I have felt compelled to write a negative review. They were busy which was fair enough but we had placed our order before a number of tables had arrived with what looked to be business bookings. 35 mins before the bread with olive oil arrived - ok, they were busy. 1 hour and 15 mins...

We went on a Wed evening without a reservation and the place was heaving. The service was quite good (polite and friendly) considering that it was mayhem so no complaints there. Our starters came quite promptly which was a nice surprise. Tasted so-so. Our mains took quite a long time after that. Again, not complaining since we had still chosen... More

Went to Rockwall with a group of around 16 people for a friends birthday on a Saturday night. What can I say my personal experience was great. The experience between the group was 50/50 some people really enjoyed their meal some people were disappointed. I guess everyone has different views and cant please everyone 100% of the time. The service... More

Rockwall is right into the fast food "scoff and scoot" brigade. Entrees come out within a couple of minutes of ordering. We always only order entrees first and then wait to order mains to ensure we have a reasonable break between courses. Dining out to us is about the experience, not about mere sustenance in the minimum amount of time.... More

We had escaped Melbourne for a weekend with out kids and to celebrate my darling wife's birthday, so ended up in lovely Hobart, the perfect weekend away. Our first day started in Salamanca place and also ended there. We went looking for an early meal to finish off the day and after cruising the strip settled on Rockwall. On entry... More

Really enjoyed the atmosphere at Rockwall. Lovely feel to the place. Very modern, comfortable and a new feeling to it. Staff were very friendly, smiling and attentive. It was a little on the loud side, so much so that staff didn't quite catch our orders and made a couple of boo boos, but all easily fixable. Oysters were a little... More

Quality food and service here. I'm sure the salmon and steak dishes are the best in Australia. We'll done Rockwall. If in Hobart you must go here.

Thanks again to Trip Advisor for pointing us in the right direction for dinner on our travels! The wait staff were all lovely and prompt and professional with their service. Our mains and desserts were served in a timely manner and were unpretentious, well prepared and delicious. Highly recommended restaurant in Hobart.
