Rolando's is a very creative Latin restaurant serving excellent food in a pretty setting. They were very accommodating of our dogs on the shady patio. Portions are generous and combine a variety of well coordinated flavors. The presentation is beautiful, too. My husband enjoyed the...Atkins Diet Platter - no diet sacrifice here! I loved the Popeye Burrito and managed to eat the whole thing by convincing myself that it was healthy!More

Tasty food with huge portions, actually too big. If you are a tourist with no place for leftovers, you end up wasting a lot of food. Service was friendly. Very authentic Ecuadorian food.

The food at this restaurant is nothing extraordinary, but it is flavorful and comes in a timely fashion. The ensalada de la casa was fresh with ripe mangos, avocados, red onions and cucumber. The Argentinian sauce added just enough spice. The Don Quixote burrito was...filled with rice, beans chicken and cheese. It makes fir a filling lunch. There is hesitation regarding the cleanliness of the bathrooms. It is difficult to get past the smell in the hallway to even use it. One can only imagine how clean they are.More

The food was prepared and delivered to the table promptly. The enchiladas were amazing and the presentation was like artwork. The one drawback was that there was not any soap or paper towels in the men’s bathroom.

Rolando's back patio is its best feature. Live music was a real treat on a busy Saturday night. Margaritas were OK and the food was acceptable. We were hungry so we ate up, but I'd probably not return for dinner again. Server was friendly, but...their service staff was clearly overwhelmed. Glad I went - once.More

Great food! Great service! Had a bit of a wait but due to staffing shortages many places were closed or unable to operate at full capacity.

Our server was very nice and professional. The salsa was a little different, kind of southwest since it has beans and corn. It was alright in my opinion. I got the pollo Bohemia, it was very interesting. The white queso was really good. The chips...though tasted pretty stale. My gf got the same thing as me, but with shrimp. The shrimp was...hardly seasoned honestly. All in all, it was an okay experience and a cool atmosphere. I don't know if we would return or not.More

We made reservations a d thought that secured our table, but a table had not been reserved for us. We did get to experience the patio area but it was so dirty. Thankfully I had something in my purse to clean the table clear of...the food stuck in the tabletop. We waited a pretty good length of time before a server waited on us, but it was also busy. The two cocktails I ordered didn’t have any evidence of any alcohol, so drinks were way overpriced for what I was expecting. I paid for expensive fruit juice. While the food was very nicely presented it was not what I had expected considering all of the positive reviews I had read. Sadly, we did not experience what I thought was going to be a great dinner. I personally will not recommend this restaurant for a couple who are hoping to have a nice dinner with good drinks and great food. But if dining on a mountainside patio is what you are mostly interested in, then it’s as good as you’ll probably get.More

The food is always fresh & unique! Excellent guacamole! The homemade Sangria is the best! Love the quirky vibe of their patio dining. Wait staff is polite and professional. Live entertainment is a plus.

Excellent food. Good variety of options. Pricing is reasonable. Service was nice. Parking can be challenging and the traffic getting here can be busy.

I'm pretty sure they would have music on Thursday. It seems to be a mainstay there. I would consider asking them when you make your reservations however. Make sure to get a table on the back patio. It is a real treat :)
