    Portion sizes are huge. Could have saved money my husband and I and shared an entree. Desserts are good but way overpriced.

    Not our first time at Red Rocks, but had the BEST service from Rovi on the heated patio Saturday night. Rovi didn’t miss a beat with our party of 6. He mentioned at the end, he had just started at RR recently, but we never would have known. Food is always consistently good, but we’ll ask for Rovi each time now.

    Our server was not attentive. My food was not cooked as I requested. I ordered a medium sirloin and it was tough, not chewable. He made us wait long periods of time without checking on us. Another server was helpful but not ours. I was so very disappointed today.

    Food was excellent, it was a little loud “for outdoor seating” but it was much improved as the crowd thinned out. Service was a little slow, but our waitress was very pleasant. Overall, great lunch.

    Our wedding anniverary (52 yrs) was on 2\12\24, Red Rocks was a good choice to celebrate. Had 'tried' to go to Bonefish Grill prior saturday 2\10\24 (daughter had given us a gift card). Got to Bonefish on time for our reservation, and told it would be another 30 minute wait. We arrived at Red Rocks on time and were seated in 5 minutes. Red Rocks knows how to run a resturant, Bonefish - not so much. PS, in addition to the service, the food was also better at Red Rocks. Will 'NEVER' go back to Bonefish, will patronize Red Rocks. Thanks!

    Superb food. Best steak ever. The service was a little slow at first We were seated in a busy area for people going to the main dining but we got lost in the shuffle. Once we got service everything went super good. I got the Cajun filet and salad it was wonderful. The waiter was attentive and the people watching went well. We love Red Rocks never a bad experience two people ate with no alcohol $120 with tip

    Costumer service was great. The food was meh. The calamari was flavorless, but the bam shrimp was very tasteful. Besides the kids tender meals we also ordered CHICKEN QUATTRO FORMAGGIO, SPINACH AND WALNUT RAVIOLI, CHICKEN SALTIMBOCCA & Jamie Satterfield's Chicken. The FORMAGGIO was flavorful & delicious. The saltimbocca was ok, but the other 2 dishes were bland to taste.

    Not our usual smaller lite lunch at the RR; a valentine lunch with my wife and ordered from their specialV-Day menu. A petite 4 ox filet and small coconut Shrimp. The sauce on the shrimp was the star of my plate! Noah, our server was personable and attentive even though he was taking care of multiple diners as the place was packed on this special Holliday. RR did a great job of handling a much much larger than normal Wednesday lunch crowd!

    The food at Red Rocks never disappoints! It was very busy, though. Our poor waiter had so many tables, and he was pretty overwhelmed so it took longer than usual. Not his fault. We really enjoyed the lunch.

    Overall my husband and I had an enjoyable meal, but he would have ordered differently if the waitress had answered his question correctly about the wedge salad. He asked if it was half a head of lettuce, but it was only a quarter of a head when it arrived. If he had known that, he would have ordered a different salad for his meal.

    Nothing special. Both food and atmosphere had a chain restaurant vibe. Even with a reservation, we ended in in a "tent" on the patio with a cheap electric heater glowing nearby on the floor. Food was OK. Drinks were good. Service was good. Just not enough here to bother going back...

    Proteins were overcooked or they have been thawed and refrozen. The Marsala chicken had a burnt taste and overpowering the subtle Marsala wine reduction.
