“Go early”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We had lunch and dinner here. Both meals were outstanding. Pricing is very reasonable. I would recommend you to make dinner reservations unless you eat very early

“Wow. Great Meal, Great Character”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Thank you fellow Trip Advisor reviewers for directing me to this quaint, cozy, delightful restaurant. We made reservations via Open Table for a relatively early Friday night dinner and I would highly suggest reservations. There were 3 adults and a 4 yr old in our party and all left more than happy and satisfied. Great appetizers, great entrees, great libations, great service. We had a variety of things and all were delicious. Wine was chilled perfectly. Our server was fantastic at answering our questions and helping us decide what to choose from all the delicious choices. Highly, highly suggest this restaurant (even with the kiddos). make reservations.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Great atmosphere - loved the open fire pit. A little pricey but worth it. Waitress was great. The restaurant has a woodsy feel and smell that is fabulous.

“Hard to Find, Hard to Forget”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Once you find Bistro Roca you never forget it. Seasonal menus, and every time they adjust them they get better. The mussel app is the best you'll eat. It comes with ample broth and all the bread to enjoy it with. Habi burger is something special, just enough habanero spice to flavor but not so much to burn. I have had almost everything on the menu and they all a better than expected.

“Upscale & Downhome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

There is a sophisticated air with a warm welcoming feel. We asked our waitress a lot of questions because we didn't know what some things were, but she was very knowledgeable & patient. Servings are not oversized & the menu for food, as well as drinks is plentiful. We were there for Sunday Brunch & would go again on any day! Wonderful!
