Enjoyed lunch by the fire on the patio...house salad with salmon was very good and the calamari was excellent. BettyAnne was very helpful with recommendations (she was spot on with her calamari recommendation!). I wasnt there the night the 'hipster' was serving, but a gentleman with a ponytail was serving the table right behind us and he seemed very polite... More

I had the crackling pork belly entree and my boyfriend had the smoked trout entree. Both were absolutely delicious! The salad sampler is a nice touch too.

Bistro Roca is a bit off the beaten path of Main Street but we'll worth the effort of finding. The food is always consistent and wonderful and atmosphere very inviting and cozy. A favorite for the locals and open year round.

........my wife and I talked about the experience the next day and she identified what put a damper on the evening and caused us to say that we likely would not go back. Any guesses? It was the condescending hipster waiter. The tall bearded fellow treated us in a manner that is hard to specifically describe, but it made us... More

Checked this place out while in NC on business. Went with a big group both times and the staff was very accommodating. Decor and atmosphere was amazing! Between all of us we tried just about everything on the menu. It was all great. Alex, our server was great with recommending and explaining dishes. Definitely get the tiramisu, it was the... More

We visit Boone, NC frequently and there are many excellent restaurants to choose from but this is the one we choose most often. Service is outstanding with a great menu and we are never disappointed on the food. Also they know how to make a great gin martini!

It's easy to see why this place is so popular with the the locals. A few blocks off the main street, but has it's own parking lot. I had an oven roasted veg dish and my husband had cornmeal pancakes. Both excellent. Friendly but not hovering wait staff. We'll return.

By far this is one of my favorite restaurants I've ever dined at. The food is exquisite, the service is great, and the atmosphere is very nice. It is comfortable and has a good bar scene, and seating eating area. It is a good place to go and relax in a somewhat formal fashion but still be comfortable. Great appetizers,... More

When our usual restaurant was closed, our innkeeper suggested Bistro Roca. WOW! I had the short rib manicotti and it was DIVINE!

They have a really comfortable bar and seating arrangement. They are known for their mac and cheese, I would say that it is good not over the top. The service is great and they are very accommodating. Everytime I am Blowing Rock, I have dinner or lunch there because the food is fantastic.
