We hosted our welcome/rehearsal dinner here less then two weeks ago, for 30+ guests. Food arrived at different times and most were served cold food. For a restaurant that says they handle large parties alot it did not seem that way. Unfriendly staff, only bartender was nice and attentive. A/C froze up and Tom claimed fans could not be turned...

Rolando's is a little pricey but worth it. The food is fabulous and so is the atmosphere. Surprisingly, I've always been seated right away with no wait. The patio is great if you want to eat outside.

Right across from Bath houses, I was so surprised at both the quality and the preparation and the display of the meal. I love Mexican food, this is definably one of the best ever. I traveled in my job and always was willing to go to different places to eat. The way the meal was presented on the dish was... More

My husband and I really liked the food here. The portions are large and we could have split our entrees. They first brought out chips and salsa which were excellent. We got seconds on the salsa. I had Camarones Bohemios which was shrimp in a lime and tequila sauce served over black beans and rice. I loved it! My husband... More

The food was very good. They had a nice array of options to select from as well. We ate in the 1920's atmosphere and it didn't really give you the complete vibe of a 1920's speak-easy. But we weren't there for the atmosphere...we were there for the food and Rolando's Restaurante did not disappoint. The service was also a little... More

We have friends that love this place. Been there 4-5 times and the food quality is good but different that what this Siuthern man is used to. The best I can describe it is Indian/Mexican.

We had lunch on this resto. We ordered tamales and you choose two kinds either it'll be chicken, cheese and pork. It's a bit pricey for $5.95 for only two but good. We had quesadilla chivo- delicious and hubby had plato Cuba. This was different but in a very good way. This is a must try! Plus the rhum cake... More

My wife and I had planned to meet friends for lunch. We arrived early and were seated on the patio. Our waitress took our drink order and waited patiently for our friends to arrive. Once they sat down she did not rush us to order, but came back to the table periodically to see if we had questions or were... More
