We recently dined there with friends for a birthday celebration. We were promptly seated at a nice table. Our server was friendly. We ordered steaks and a mixed seafood pasta. The steaks were perfectly prepared but there was a slight mix-up on the service and the male server was combative bordering on rude. The seafood was a little overcooked but... More

Great Italian places are few and far between. Roku comes close. After stopping in a few times, I can say that their service stands out. The wait staff act as if it was a 5-star restaurant and make you feel like the movie star that, well, may be sitting a few tables away (this is a film town after all).... More

Attention to detail yet not pestered while eating. The scampi was out of this world and a good portion for the price. Salads where fresh and flavorful. The staff was cheerful and helpful, kept our drinks full, and checked on us just enough to feel pampered but never interrupted our conversations. After dinner cappuccinos where the perfect end to the... More

Had heard so many positives from friends but I can't understand because this place is solidly mediocre. I should have known as soon as I saw the olive oil/vinegar for bread dipping come out. That's Marcaroni Grille or carrabas type stuff, not fine dining. The scampi has a nice presentation but is not so great, as the waitress really pushed... More

I've been to Roku many times since it opened and never disappointed. The seafood dishes are great, even on the second day (leftover). Service is good.

This is a family owned and run quaint restaurant that is absolutely exquisite. Quite small so reservations are a must. Their nightly specials usually draw your eyes away from the menu so every visit is special and fresh. I simply cannot stay away. Try it once and you will return whether a visitor or a local resident. Staff is friendly... More

No matter what I order, the meal is always delicious...my favorite is the shrimp scampi with risotto and the pecan crusted grouper ..WOW! And when you're stuffed and think you can't eat another bite...get some dessert...any dessert...fabulous. The owners are so nice and the staff is the best...how nice of them to build it so close to my house!

We used to eat at this restaurant when it was Nickolas in New Bern. We were sad to see them closed and move away from New Bern. We found them by chance in Wilmington last week and tried dinner there on Friday night. It was fabulous! The service was exceptional, the wine superb, the ambience romantic and full of good... More

My wife and I have dined here on several occasions. We went with three other couples on Valentine's day. On the busiest restaurant night of the the year, our food was very well prepared, and presented. All eight entrees arrived at the same time, and all of us were very pleased with our choices. I had the Osso Bucco special.... More

I just cannot contain myself any longer. I have to write this because the people from Roko deserve the best. The place is great, they give their all and then some. I go out a lot I never cook so eating out is part of my life. Not one place in Wilmington has service like at Roko the servers are... More
