    Food and service excellent. I especially liked the way you order the fish. Choose your fish, choose preparation, choose sauce, choose sides. The Brussels sprouts were sooo good.

    Food was outstanding as always. That’s why we keep coming back. But the noise level was ridiculously loud. We could not hear the conversation across a table for 4. Maybe the solution is to come with people we don’t want to talk to!

    We had to wait for about 10mins to be seated but in the meantime we walked across to the boardwalk and took in some gorgeous ocean views. Service was excellent. He did not rush us at any point. He made sure to always ask how our food was when we received a new dish on the table. Managers also checked in periodically, extremely friendly. The server was clearing the table himself, there were no busboys which is not a bad thing because this way there is no miscommunications between server and busboy and the job just gets done right away by the server. My father is a chef and he himself was impressed with everything. He had the bronzino with risotto, very pleased. Mother had the chicken entree and was very pleased as well, not too dry and the squash puree was delicious. I personally had the skirt steak, it was deliciously tender ! Thank you Rooney’s for a wonderful experience.

    We had our two year old son outside ( on an outdoor patio) watching his iPad at a reasonable volume And was told by the owner that "Cocomellon is great but no one wants to hear it" Then proceeded to tell us how "high end" his restaurant is ( outside with waiters wearing shorts and management wearing sneakers) and they don't like to hear "noise" yet it's in a board walk. Food undercooked and extremely obnoxiously unfriendly for children ( even though they have a kids menu)

    "reasonable volume", no...it's what I asked you to put it at. It was extremely loud and touching other tables. and YES, no one wants to hear it and YES, a customer did complain through another server and I wasn't going to say someone did because I didn't trust you, you were angry because I said, "Coco melon is great but can you lower it a little please" and for some reason that was way too much for you to handle so why start another argument and put someone on the spot. As you and I were talking 8 feet away I even said, to you..."you can hear it clearly from here." You were so angry that I asked nicely to put the volume down a tad that you didn't even care. I'm sorry this happened, I'm not happy this happened but it's curtesy.
