“Solid Splits”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

A late afternoon lunch was pleasant and filling although accompanied by loud music. Given the time of day, staff were understandably building energy through the beat, however, with so few patrons in the building, I found the noise level high. Food was on target with a fresh and pleasantly split Heirloom Tomato Salad and Pasta of the day (split charge: $2.50). Fair value for the meal.

“Consistently awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Been there many times for lunch and dinner and the food and service are always excellent. The price to value ratio is outstanding, same food anywhere else would be much higher. Love the recent interior remodel! Hosted a bridal shower there yesterday for 20 and it was absolutely perfect. Couldn't have been better in any way!

“Excellent meal, great attention to detail!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Steve & Rocky's has become one of our favorite restaurants. The food is wonderful, eclectic and inventive. There is an amazing attention to detail. We recently took my husband's mother and stepdad there for Mom's 80th birthday. We made note of the birthday celebration on our reservation and, much to our surprise and delight, printed at the top of our menus was "Happy 80th Birthday". We requested a specific table and we were graciously accommodated. Our table was set and ready upon our arrival. The food was melt-in-your-mouth delicious and the staff is outstanding! Can't say enough good things about this place! Oh, and by the way. . .if you are there during the heirloom tomato season you must try the heirloom tomato salad. Delicious!

“second visit was just as the first - very nice.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

I'd been to Steve and Rocky's once before (in April of 2012) for a work function. This last time was to meet a girlfriend for drinks and dinner. I noticed that there were a lot of, shall we say, an older crowd... so we weren't sure the atmosphere was for us. But it was great!

We were sat immediately but had to move due to a flickering light over our table. Our original server, Shannon, was gracious and moved bread, butter, drinks, etc., to our new table who was attended by Mack. Great server! Shannon informed me that other people had moved, so I'm not sure why management wouldn't take that table off the list for the evening, until it was repaired.

We each had the heirloom tomato salad, which was quite tasty. They were able to make mine without bacon. My only suggestion would be to use a goat's milk or dry ricotta cheese and nix the bleu cheese. I love bleu cheese but it paired a bit awkwardly.

My girlfriend had the sea scallops with gnocchi and I had the salmon, which was accompanied by fingerling potatoes, beans, and had what were supposed to be crusted heirloom tomatoes-- but were what seemed to be a Roma tomato with some undercoked breading. I personally would have omitted those, but it didn't ruin the dish, was more of another awkward pairing. The rest of my dish was perfectly prepared and presented.

Kudos on your extensive Scotch list.

Ordered the apple strudel dessert (with a Pinconning / Colby cheese and dried cherries and then whipped cream / a caramel and cinnamon sauce on the side) to share with my hubby at home. Was amazing with the salty cheese!!!

“Rocking filet mignon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Have been in Novi for business reasons and were looking for a good place where to get a steak in Novi. Got this from Tripadvisor: great suggestion. Excellent filet mignon, good location, nice service. We went twice in one week!
