    All was lovely. Only recommendation is that broccoli and mashed potatoes was salted a bit too much. Filet minion was perfect.

    The food was very good. Steaks were cooked to order, which is a challenge for a lot of restaurants. The service was a little slow, but we were not in a rush either. It’s an art to space out courses correctly. I’d rather have be a little too much time between courses than have everything show up at once.

    Everything went like clockwork. We were on time for our 600pm reservation and were seated immediately. Our waiter was at our table within 2 minutes. Our food was delivered in a reasonable amount of time, especially considering the crowd on hand. The food was served perfectly and was cooked to perfection and hot off the grill. In addition to our waiter we had other people attend to our drinks and a manager talk to us about our experience. Wonderful evening. This was our second time to this restaurant and we will be back.

    We decided to try Red Rocks for the first time, during Charlotte Restaurant Week, and were fortunate enough to snag a Sunday evening reservation slot. On arriving we had a minimal wait despite a full restaurant. Our server was awesome--super positive and upbeat--and our drinks came immediately. We ordered from the 3 course specials. I got the lobster ravioli and my husband got the beef medallions. We both got the chopped salads which arrived fast and were delicious. Our server even brought us complimentary rolls at our request. The entrees were perfectly prepared and delicious as well. Refills came when needed and again, the service was impeccable. We had 3 options for dessert and both chose a chocolate one, but dinner was so filling, I only ate about half of my chocolate cake and my husband only finished about half of his brownie, bringing the rest home. Overall the meal was a bit costly, but well worth the price for the food and the experience. We ended up spending about $100 which would have been more had we been drinkers. IMO, $3.50 for an iced tea is a bit much but seems to be the norm. If I could suggest anything, I would say include soft drinks/tea with a prix fixe menu.

    My husband’s she crab soup and lobster ravioli were excellent, but my fillets were not. One was undercooked and the other was over cooked. Our waiter did not ask if they were cooked properly. The mashed potatoes also weren’t mashed. They tasted more like an undercooked baked potato. We had a reservation but were asked to sit at the bar, which we declined and were then seated on the patio, which was chilly. This was not one of our better visits.

    Everything was excellent except for the calamari. It was a little tough and not a lot of flavor. But everything was great. Especially our server. One of my favorite places to eat. Just wish it was closer to home.

    I was not going to leave a review but I feel that they need to address a major issue, it was my wife’s birthday our waitress Savanna was fantastic however the rest not so much. When we got our appetizer the crab cakes we took a couple of bites and I noticed smudges on the rim of the plate, it was oily not dry, then I felt stuck on food residue, I was able to write in the oil smudge. We did not touch the appetizer after that and brought it to her attention and she I assume brought it to the managers, next the main course, now we were gun shy, same thing not as bad but you could see the residue on the plate, at that point we just ate our food and hoped for the best. The chicken marsala had only a hint of marsala it just tasted like gravy, my jambalaya was good no problem, once that seed of the dirty plates was planted we just wanted to leave. If you go there check your plates for residue on the edges you will be able to see it when the light hits it. Unfortunately we will not be returning because of the mental images.

    The one main stable of this restaurant is the manager Will .. Will has been there for 20 years and does a outstanding job with everyone there .. you can tell with the quality of employees he has working to their training ..We been coming to this Red Rock for over 20 years maybe closer to 30 years and never had a bad experience in all that time .. GREAT JOB ..

    We dine at Red Rocks Cafe regularly. Our most recent visit was two days ago for lunch, and it was a great visit! We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Our server, Noah, was patient and prompt; he did a great job. I had the lemon dill salmon, which was exceptional. I also had a small salad with bleu cheese dressing. Their bleu cheese dressing is made in-house and is fantastic! Before we left, I ordered some jambalaya to take home. We were hosting dinner guests that night, and I knew the Red Rocks jambalaya would make everyone happy; it did not disappoint! Highly recommend Red Rocks, a Charlotte staple that is owned and operated by lovely people.
