We had a nice dinner sitting on the back porch. It is not enclosed and we got just a bit chilled back there. They windows are partially opened. It is more rustic than sitting in the main restaurant. I ordered the sausage flat bread pizza which was good any plenty for one. The sauce was a little too sweet for... More

Tucked away in a residential neighborhood this is a gem favored by locals. Fresh ingredients and an interesting menu make for a great dining experience. It's also a cozy place to get a drink and enjoy browsing through hundreds of photos on the walls.

Great adult restaurant - bar to the left very cozy & welcoming with main seating for dinner to the right. Food was fantastic -- but... More

This place was recommended by a local. We arrived and were sent to the bar because we didn't have reservations. My wife enjoyed the trout and my burger was quite tasty.

Jim and Deb from Mountainaire Inn recommended this place. Glad we made a reservation 'cause the place was packed! Although the service was a little slow, the food was excellent! We will be back.

Bistro Roca used to be dependably good, a restaurant we've visited often. But the last few times we've been there, we've noticed that the quality is slipping. It's still a popular place-- maybe too popular-- it can get extremely noisy and chaotic. On our most recent visit we arrived at 6 pm on a Saturday night. The restaurant was not... More

Our dinner experience at Bistro Roca was great. The appetizers and main courses were superb. The chef is definitely on top of his game.

Title above days it all. With only four nights we chose two nights spending an enjoyable evening in this remarkable establishment. Looking forward to a return visit.
