The atmosphere in the restaurant was very good, the service was very good. We think that the pizzas we had ordered were ones of the best in the city. But the fish the fish dishes was a little bit dry.
But we had a very nice time. Thank you.

Generally happy with Rococo as we have been quite a few times, but disappointed this time as we were rushed and the restaurant wasn’t fully booked. We had literally finished appetisers and the mains came out. Although I was looking forward to the pasta I would have liked a bit of time to digest the apertizers. Was then disappointed with pasta which was bland and not al-dente. I only picked at it and left most of it. Felt rushed, even the people next to us made s comment on how quick our food came out as they ordered their main meal when we ordered our apertizers and they were served their mains after us. We were finished within 40mins, disappointing as we really wanted to take our time and enjoy the evening.

Service was great, all staff were super friendly! Entree came out so quickly and the timing between entree and mains was perfect. I had a pizza and my friend had a gnocchi and both were super delicious. We were sat outside by choice as it was a relatively warm night and we both really enjoyed the atmosphere.

Thanks for a great night. The service was outstanding, especially given we had some dietary requirements which were managed with no stress. The food was delicious. The food and drinks arrived with minimal wait even though the restaurant was quite busy. We wouldn't hesitate to return and to recommend to others.

I am a regular to this place, mainly for lunch. I found it unacceptable to have to wait over 30 minutes for a bottle of wine, having brought the wrong one twice and then saying they didn’t have the one I ordered. No way slick enough

Absolutely love the separate vegan menu here, which is what keeps me coming back. It's wonderful for my husband and I to bring non-vegan friends and family here and know that everyone has plenty of options. I particularly rave about your sweet potato chips and red wine sangria to others! Always a great night, thank you.

Delicious food and so many menu options! We were served by so many people that we found it a bit challenging to know who was best to speak to. The restaurant was very busy, so the wait staff were under the pump. We had to wait a while for water and also for our meals, but overall the experience was enjoyable.

Calamari salad came with no dressing
Pizza came with salami despite telling them no salami
The usually busy restaurant was very quiet.
Perhaps a change of quality reflective of the Lack of patronage

So disappointing to be told that the kitchen was so busy and mains would be at least 30 plus minutes... so we ordered entrees and mains....entrees arrived and less than 15 minutes later, mains arrived. We hadn't finished our entrees which were swept away. I felt like telling the waitress to take mains back. Really poor performance and we won't be returning. We were recommended a main...sorry but it was ordinary at best. Not the restaurants best night.

Had late lunch with a girlfriend, no staffs welcoming to direct us into the dining table. Waiting for couple minutes before sitting down to the place we want. A man (with suit) took order for coffee (brought the wrong coffee) doesn’t say apologies and just ran back inside to replace another order. Took awhile for our orders to arrive.
Definitely need to look at the quality of customer services.

The host/manager was especially attentive to our service and had amazing customer service. Some of the other staff were good but sometimes a little hard to get their attention when we wanted to buy more after our initial order.
