    Service was terrible. Had a reservation and still waited 20 extra minutes for our table. Food was very disappointing. For the price of everything, we expected much better. Drinks were very generic and could tell the flavoring was syrup and nothing authentic about it. Would never come back here again or another location. Disappointing all around. Wasn’t worth anything close to what we paid.

    One of the worst experiences ever, they were out of a ton of stuff, took all types of things they used to have on the menu off and the service was atrocious. She didn’t apologize she wrote our order down came back 25 minutes later and said oh yeah we don’t have that. Anything else you would like? She forgot to bring out 2 things we ordered and it was $275 + tip we had one drink each (4 people) and an entree. We will never go back and I have no idea how this place stays open. Best part was the “table side guac” she made it in a different room and brought it out to us, even though we paid $15 for that “service” place is a joke

    Nice server. She just spent the whole time talking to other employees and only came back to our table once. The restaurant was not busy. We dined on a weekday. Annoying. Left a good tip anyway, but the staff needs to be better trained at this restaurant. Quite a few of the employees just standing around on phones, chatting, etc. Food was good. I always enjoy dining here, but disappointed in our server this time.

    Reservation at 4:30, finally seated at 4:45, you could tell they were short staffed or something- I think our waiter was new. Service was a little slow, but not too bad. It was very busy. Food was amazing!

    Unfortunately not like it used to be at all. The food was average at best. The quesadilla had one piece of steak in each slice only, with one green pepper in each. Just not a good experience

    Overall GREAT experience. We started with the table side guacamole and it was the absolute BEST guac I’ve ever had. I ordered a chicken taco & steak taco- very good. My boyfriend ordered the birria tacos, they were average.

    Haven’t been in a while because it’s always crazy busy and they really try to accommodate too many guest at a time. You barely have room to walk or move your chair because tables are so close. Very loud so it’s a little hard to carry on conversation without shouting but it’s a fun atmosphere. Our margaritas were watery tasting but still had the buzz, Birria tacos had no flavor so that was a bummer! Guac was amazing and our server was very kind and doing his best. Dj is on point. Restrooms are clean and beautiful as usual. I’m optimistic so maybe it was an off night? Always try something for yourself is my recommendation.

    It was a cool place to hangout, but not sure if it right for a date. The music was very loud and people next to us were screaming to talk. So it was kind of awkward in that sense. The food was delicious, the guacamole was delicious and the carne asada. The skinny Margarita were amazing and the beers were very cold. The service was great!

    The environment is fantastic. The food was not hot enough in terms of temperatures, rice and beans on all dishes was luke warm at best. The table side quac service is a nice touch but not consistent. We ordered a 2nd because 1st one was so good and 2nd one was awful. The drinks were consistently good. For 3 of us to have 2 drinks each, 2apps and entrees was over $200 after tip. I would go for drinks and maybe apps. If I went again.

    Huge disappointment for a 16th birthday dinner. Our table was ready on time, a positive. As we were seated, we noticed several tables around us hadn't been cleared and were filled with dishes and glasses and food. Our appetizer plates were dirty. They did not have brisket for the tacos and no wings, which should've been told to us before we looked at the menu, decided what we wanted, and ordered. Two orders came out completely wrong and had to be remade. Seven meals served at different times. Waitress made many comments, including: I'm going solo here, I don't know what's going on back there (said that a few times), do you want to order dessert because at least they seem to know what they're doing, I've only been here two months and I don't know what is going on here, and four people just quit. So they comped us twice without us having to speak to a manager, and no manager came to us, first $100 and then another amount that I didn't see because I didn't pay the bill. I have been waiting for someone to not feel well because if the dishes are dirty, food is wrong and running low at 5:30 on a Sunday, and it's said they don't know what they are doing, I question quality of the food, and it's not very appetizing. So far so good after almost 24 hours. Really strange experience at International Mall. We have been to Rocco's several times, but I can't imagine going back unless I hear there have been improvements made.

    Usually one of my favorite spots. Food and service were excellent as usual. Issue this time was that temperature was warm inside (seemed like an issue with the A/C) and the booth we were put it was very cramp for six adults for a business meeting.

    The ambience of the place is great if you are okay with energy and noise. It started well but honestly the service was less than average. Not sure if our waiter just had too many tables, but I counted over 6 times that he passed our table and not once checked us or whether we were ready to order. We placed our orders about 30 minutes after arriving. Waited and had to flag him down to get water and to check on the order. I am glad I put my to go order at the time of my dine in order if not I would have been very late to my next engagement. Let’s days it took about 50 for the food to be completely ready. By the time the food was coming out, I had to leave. Food was good but I am sure it would have been better eaten there if it was ready at a decent time. Again, not sure if there was a staffing issue but the service left much to be desired.

    Food was awful, we had a party of 16 and ever one who ordered beans got hardly cooked beans that were very hard. Rice was crispy? Taste old. Terrible experience. Server was very nice about the only good thing at this place. Would not recommend or come back.

    Absolutely wonderful food and drink experience. Enjoyed the amazing table side guacamole. Ordered the molcajete (a cauldron of juicy steak and juices) and mahi tacos for dinner. Both were impressive dishes full of layered flavor. Tried four drinks, loved the Black Diamond (twice) and Cadillac best. We waited 0 min for our reserved table on Opentable and will definitely be back.
