I feel like we stumbled into a nice locals' Italian restaurant and I want to keep the secret so that it doesn't get overrun! Service was friendly, helpful, and fun! Food was excellent. Veal was cooked perfectly, which is hard to find sometimes. We will return and I can definitely recommend it for a date night or couples night out.

I will start by saying the service here is superb in every way you could imagine. The food however isn't quite as I had dreamed. The appetizer bruschetta and the bread with oil/balsamic was great. Wine selection here is pretty good however the pricing was a little on the heavy side from what I have seen elsewhere. The chicken dish... More

Sounds like you liked your meal and your service. We are so happy to hear that! We make all of entrees fresh. We use the finest ingredients and source locally when we can. We believe our prices reflect the time and effort it takes to prepare a homemade meal as well as the freshness you won't find from premade or... More

This restaurant is overrated. Striped bass quite good but portion was cut from near the tail of the fish and therefore less than appetizing and worthy of a kingly price. Escargo was fibrous, stringy and hard to chew. Boiled potatos uninspiring. People there are nice, but the service was slow but given that all tables were full.

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 pasta which did not come... 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..........!
