OK but did not live up to reviews from Trip Advisor

Four of us visited on March 22. We had high expectations based on Trip Advisor reviews. This restaurant was OK but not a 4 or 5. Nice atmosphere. Friendly staff. I loved my entree of shrimp ala Roko. The other three of us were not so impressed. For instance, one had requested a side of... read more

My husband and I have always liked this place but couldn't seem to remember to make a reservation before deciding to go so it was usually quite a wait (which my husband doesn't do well). It's not a large place so it fills up fast. We decided to do dinner and a movie so I remembered to make a reservation.... More

We shared last Saturday evening with our daughter and son-in-law as well as six special friends at Roko. Our waiter was FABULOUS! The atmosphere in the restaurant is wonderful. Best of all the food is incredible. Our grilled (yes grilled) Caesar Salad was outstanding, and everyone's main course (we shared) was delicious. We will definitely return!

Even though we were late in dining that evening, we felt welcome as soon as we walked through the doors. The drinks were cold, food was excellent and the service outstanding! Their Roko salad was fresh and crispy and the Chicken Parmesan was melt in your mouth delicious. Even though we were late and were still there talking after the... More

I went to Roko this past Sunday and had a delightful experience and delicious meal. The escargot rivaled that I had eaten in Paris. The grouper encrusted in walnut and pecans was cooked perfectly. I also recommend the veal sorrentino which is much like veal saltimbocca, yet it has a thin layer of eggplant that gives it additional flavor. The... More

Outstanding food, drink and service. Reservations are critical. Restaurant is very small and waits are long. Best time to go is early on a Sunday evening.........it is not as busy. This is a favorite of ours..........!

Was excited to meet friends here the other night and try it out. Nice atmosphere, good food, but felt a little rushed. Granted, we were catching up with friends and trying to leisurely enjoy a night out without kids (parents of small children will understand this), but we all felt like our waitress was a little too anxious to get...

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
