Had dinner at Roko tonight. The special was grouper; and, without a doubt, it was one of the best meals I've had in a long time! Our server was so helpful and attentive. Will certainly make this one of our "go to" local restaurants.

make reservations in advance. they have limited seating, so you can just entirely miss out on the amazing food if you don't call ahead. nice wine selection. my husband and I agreed that this was the best bruschetta we had ever eaten. I wouldn't bring kids to this restaurant for dinner.

This place was really nice with a fine dining atmosphere mixed with casual and all at a great price. The food and service were both excellent and we look forward to returning. Not a lot of seats so they recommend reservations, as we did not have any but were lucky there was one table for two in the bar section.... More

Not sure where to begin except that our waiter make a cardinal error that could have cost me dearly...and I'm not talking about $$. When we sat down our party of 5 was looking forward to a lovely dinner. I immediately told our waiter I have a severe onion allergy. His "flip" response was that there are no onions in... More

From the moment we walked in, we were charmed. A bouquet of fresh pink roses graced the entrance. The hostess, an owner with her husband, greeted us with a warmly. The lights were low. Service was impeccable, the server friendly and professional. The menu wonderful option. I had caprese salad, "chose" the ingredients for my pasta dinner; it was a... More

We enjoyed dinner here on a week night. The pasta dishes were good but could have used more spice. The steak and spinach was delicious. Guests wore shorts which was disappointing. The wait staff was average .

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
