We enjoyed a wonderful dinner from start to finish at Rocky River Grille. The hostess was friendly and helpful, our server Leslie was attentive and knowledgeable, and our food was perfect. We ordered the black eyed pea hummus and pimento cheese appetizer--a delicious combination of Southern favorites--which would have been plenty for even a table of four to share. We... More

I ate dinner one night at Rocky River Grille. The menu is short with some complicated dishes but all I wanted was steak and chips. My steak was excellent and, although not on the menu, I had French fries instead of the listed mashed potatoes. I asked for a side of garden salad — lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber — as the... More

The menu was very limited. The food arrived lukewarm. The food was very late in coming. Go elsewhere.

I always make it a point to write good reviews and hesitate to write poor ones. But I couldn't leave this unwritten. Just a very poor dinner experience from start to finish. Our server was very inattentive and left for long periods of time. We had to ask for bread, while diners all around us were receiving their bread. Our... More

We planned on a nice family dinner out at the restaurant but realized when we arrived that the actual restaurant is closed and the bar serves the identical menu. We were OK with it until we realized the patrons were the typical bar crowd with the loud vulgar language which we don't want for our kids. TVs are around so... More

We had a party of 6 with a reservation and were promptly seated upon arrival at our desired table. Everyone enjoyed their meals except one steak was a little under cooked. Server and manager both offered to replace the steak but person opted to keep it after already eating some of it and not wanting to wait. Our server Madan... More

The lunch menu had a nice variety of food items and the prices were good. The wait staff was very attentive and the view was nice.

We were planning a small wedding for my daughter, who had just recently moved to North Carolina, on a very short time frame (2 months). I had called the Embassy Suites and they referred me to the Rocky River Grille. I am so glad that they did. We worked with Nikki Jackson, who was just wonderful. She met with us... More

As I sit and eat my food...The Prospect Salad with Salmon, awesome, the bartender, Tara, surrounded by male customers and talking about great customer service, must have forgotten that there is a woman at the bar as well. Every encounter has been less than desirable! Her comments have been curt and uncaring. I will come back for the food, but... More

I have read others' reviews of the facility so I must first say that my experience was through room service at the Embassy Suites Hotel, where the Grille is located, rather than inside the restaurant, whose interior I did see. It appeared to be a very accommodating facility, sort of pub-like and roomy in apperance. So, I ordered from suite-service.... More
