l was definitely expecting a bit more from this restaurant. The food was good, however the service was shocking! No waiter would come over to our table even when we tried to flag them down.
Didn't get served any water, when we asked for some, the waiter said they'd bring some back yet never did.
Waited a while for food - however, it was alright. Not amazing, not terrible pizza.
l think there would be better places along the glenferrie strip, so maybe do some more research before deciding this place.

The food was really great. It was difficult to get the attention of the waiter/waitress to get the bill at the end of lunch.

Otherwise a lovely experience,

The food was nice but not great, the venue was clean and very busy. Staff were nice when we got to see them they were very busy. Needed more staff. We still had a lovely evening though

Food was lovely, a lot of choice.
The Capuccino Martini was delicious but trying to get the attention of a waiter/waitress was extremely difficult when you wanted to order a drink.

Service was extremely poor. Dirty plates left on the table for 45 mins. We had to steal the water bottle from the vacated table next to us as we had not been checked on for an extremely long period of time.
Given I have had a very positive experience at the St Kilda restaurant I expected the same at Hawthorn but unfortunately that was not the case.

It’s been a while since eating at Rococo, Normally we do dinner but this was brunch. We loved the food. Great variety, good serves, reasonable prices. An egg as an extra was only $1.50. Have experienced them being up tp $4 elsewhere. Now that we can book online (walk ups have always been a bit hard to get in) we will be back more often. Nice to have an old favourite back.

Went with a friend out to dinner. Food was really good as well as the drinks. Service was a little halted in that we would got a small amount of service at the start and then lots at the end. Noise was reasonably loud which made it difficult to hold a conversation. But otherwise was a great night out.

We had a great meal made all the better as one guest required gluten free and fructose free options which were catered for without any fuss.

Have been going to Rococo for years and they have never let down. Great food, friendly staff, delicious sangria! I have taken many family and friends for breakfast, lunch and dinner and they are always impressed the the quality and variety of food on the menu. I will soon be taking my two vegan sisters to try out the vegan menu. I am sure Rococo will impress them.

There was miscommunication as we ordered over the phone. A waitress was quite defensive when we pointed it out but the host went above and beyond to redeem the situation.

We went for our 10th anniversary, sat at our table for 30min and was not seen by a SINGLE staff member. No drinks, no nothing. We flagged someone down to tell them, they walked off and never returned. We walked out after 35 minutes.

It is a fantastic place to meet with friends and family. The service is terrific and staff is always ready to help you with a surprise if you are celebrating. The food was delicious, including vegetarian dishes and a soy hot chocolate that were all above average.

We went for lunch - 2 adults/2 younger kids. The food was tasty with a great variety on the menu, but lunch cost nearly $200 and we didn't eat that much (shared plates and one pizza). I think it's overpriced by about 15-20% - at least you could offer some cheaper wines/sparkling by the glass that might help. If it was 15% cheaper we'd go again but at these prices we won't sadly. Service was a bit slow - hard to get waitress's attention…too busy re-setting tables. Didn't clear tables fast enough or ask for more drinks etc. If you can afford $200 for lunch then I recommend i guess.

I have already recommended and posted your vegan menu onto a vegan facebook group before our first visit in Rococo Glenferrie. However, the service was disappointed.

Firstly, I made a booking via the phone initially. The staff asked me to provide my credit card CVC in that is not appropriate for security reasons and I have never encountered that in other restaurants. Then, he asked me to book online. After I filled out my details, it said I needed to contact the restaurant directly for a large table. The staff again asked me to put down 10 people instead of 11 and left the remarks, but it still didn't work till I put down 9.

I left my remarks for totally 11 people including 4 children and 1 baby for a birthday gathering. And I also requested a quiet area at the back and a vegan menu on the phone as well and the staff told me that he would take care of it.
However, when we got there, we were given a table in the center of the restaurant. We had to ask for the vegan and children menu twice. The staff who was on the phone greeted me though but he didn't take care of our request.

We ordered extra bread for the entree dip but somehow we had to chase it and had it after our main meal.

I am taking my time to write this to you so that you can improve your service and necessarily re-train your staff.

Awesome spot for a birthday lunch.
Cosy & warm depite the cold weather outside. Was given a lovely window table up the back.All our pasta meals were tasty & filling. The waitress was very pleasant while not being over attentive.
Candle on my dessert was a nice touch.
Would definitely go back!

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.
