Description: Located on Historic Murphy Ave. in downtown Sunnyvale, Rok, Stone-Age Fondue & Steakhouse is a truly unique dining experience. Our signature specialty is called Hot Rok. Premium entrees are delivered to your table seared and sizzling on hot volcanic Roks. Diners bask in the aroma as their entrees cook right before their eyes. Every bite is hot, juicy, and delicious, ready to be enjoyed as is or dipped in a variety of our specially-created dipping sauces. We also offer the best part of fondue...cheese appetizer fondues and chocolate dessert fondues. If you combine Hot Rok with fondue in a pot (we call it the Rok n Pot) we guarantee a wonderful evening of dining enjoyment. Our full bar features fruit-infused vodkas and a wine list that offers many varietals by the glass. If coming just for the Rok, you can be in and out in an hour. If enjoying the Rok n Pot, you should plan on approx. 2 hours. Please join us for the ultimate evening of dining enlightenment.

“Great food, a bit pricey”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Fondue is always expensive. So the prices here are not totally out of line. But for the price, I'd like to see a bit nicer atmosphere. That being said, I've eaten here numerous times and the food is consistently good. The service can range from good to a bit slow. Portions are not huge, and have actually seemed to have gotten smaller since they opened.

“Fun Concept”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Enjoyed Rok Bistro the other night while visiting Santa Clara. Wanted something different and that's what I got here. They bring your order seared but more on the raw side and you finish cooking it to your liking on a hot lava rock at your table along with a couple different sauces. Not only that it was delicious it was enjoyable to do it with the rest of your group. The sizzling and aromas all around you is great....it's like your in the kitchen and your the head chef and the food comes out great. Would definitely go back next time in town.

“Great for special occasions”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

My most recent visit was for a work lunch, but have also been here many times for dinner. Yes, for dinner it can be a bit pricey, but lunch is a great bargain. At lunch, my fave is the hanging tenderloin. Soooooo good! Love the chimichurri sauce! And Mimi is a vey attentive server.

“Best. Restaurant. Ever.”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

The Rok Bistro has become our go to restaurant for special occasions and for entertaining when we have guests in town. The staff is wonderful. The food is incredible. And it's just so much fun to eat there! Every course is awesome - salads, cheese fondues, main courses that you cook yourself on those really hot lava tiles (and the veggies that come with the entrees are perfect), and of course the chocolate fondues. mmmmm For us it's definitely one of the pricier restaurants that we go to, but it's definitely worth it!

“Amazing meat, regular atmosphere, friendly staff”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

I come here whenever i can, the meat is amazing and the experience of cooking it yourself on a hot stone is worth the visit. Super friendly staff, always kind and helpful. A little bit expensive for the amount of food but it's high quality meat.
