I rarely rate at five stars (excellent), but this restaurant at Mayfaire Center is the real thing. Individually prepared outstanding and authentic dishes, great service, and reasonable (date night) prices. The menu offerings, desserts, and wine list are all top notch. On most nights you will need a reservation...it is no secret, especially to locals.

Finally...white table cloths, candles, "restaurant voices", professional staff, and MOST importantly, a serious taste sensation!!! Roko spoils the pallet with every bite. I had little audible conversation with my spouse because I was too seduced by the Escargot appetizer, and Flounder Ana (oh the white sauce and prosciutto topping was sooo good on the flounder) entree. All I could manage... More

Carol and I visited Roko for the first time on New Year's Eve. We had a reservation and used a gift certificate we received for Christmas from our kids. Although the place was packed and we arrived early, we still got sitted immediately. The décor does allow for a conversation despite being packed with customers. This is a good thing.... More

We have been staying in Mayfair, Wilmington, North Carolina for several years and our only disappointment is that we only discovered Roko on our last day of our trip before we returned to England, United Kingdom. We have eaten all over the world in some amazing restaurants and we would like to include Roko as one of these. This is... More

Travelled down from Emerald Isle to celebrate my husband's birthday. He wanted "Italian" so we found Roko through Trip Advisor. After reviewing their menu before making a reservation I decided I would check out the gluten free pasta offered. We arrived 15 minutes early and were promptly seated. Décor is warm and inviting. My husband started off with Calamari Fritta... More

The place was packed on Sunday night with more arriving as we left around 9pm. This isn't earth shaking food but solid. Their sides of string beans and pan fried potatoes are becoming repetitive, however. A nice treat: Bellini martini. My grouper in caper butter was good but not inspired....actually not sure grouper requires inspired cooking. The service here has... More

My first experience at Roko was when my parents treated my fiancé and I on the evening we got engaged. The server was very knowledgeable, personable, and attentive; he also gave great recommendations. The food was wonderful too. We are quick to recommend this place to others and have been back since. Reservations highly, highly recommended.

We have just moved to the area and I was looking for a great Italian restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. Being new to the area, I didn't even know where to begin to look so I went to TripAdvisor for some help; I am so glad I did. We made reservations for 6 on a Sunday night but got in... More

Excellent choices. The grouper special was a hit. The linguine with white clams was quite pleasant. Excellent wine. The artichoke appetizer was quite good. Caring but not overbearing service. A keeper.
