Wonderful atmosphere, service and food. We love this place.
We absolutely loved our experience. The food was fantastic. The wine and cocktails were amazing and the server was very attentive.
It was great! Better service would’ve made it 5 stars, but will for sure be back to try again!
The server was amazing. The Thai Turkey rolls didn’t have a Thai flavor and really tasted like mush. The rest of the food was great!
So. Much. Fun. Six of us shared small plates and flatbreads before a play. Fondue was fun. Fish tacos were delicious. The wines are well selected and reasonably priced.
I have been dining at RoCA for years and have always been very impressed with the food, the cocktails and the service .
Great place to go before the show at the civic center. Server was very good. Asian lettuce wrap recipe must have changed. It tasted different. We left some behind. However, the Root beer sliders were awesome!
Pre-theater meal with a friend. Just what we needed!
Everything was great except for sitting downstairs. It was loud and we did not like sitting down there. It was loud overhead and with the people at shorties next door. Next time I will know when I make a reservation to let them know I do not wanna be down there again. Otherwise the food was great and service and rinks.
Another amazing visit to enjoy the deconstructed nachos, Brussels sprouts, and Asian tacos. But as good as they were, the drinks were better (wine flight, English Channel and Smoking Gun)
Wonderful food and great service with server Anna!
Went there for my husband’s birthday and it was a fantastic experience. The food was incredible and the service was so kind and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend!
Root beer sliders had the best pulled pork I’ve ever ate.
25th wedding anniversary. Excellent service, great food and wine. Highly recommend!
Brit our server Was absolutely outstanding. Making perfect suggestions for our business dinner. The drinks are outstanding and the food is amazing. This is a wonderful restaurant in the Des Moines dining experience. Not to be missed if you are in Des Moines.
Great food. Loved the scallops, but wish there were more for the price. Deconstructed nachos and fondue were amazing. The Brussels sprouts served with the fondue were my personal favorite. There were 5 of us so we ordered all 5 desserts. All were delicious but the bread pudding won the number one vote.
Our waiter was working his tail off and checked in on us as possible.
We had an excellent experience. We ordered the grilled romaine salad, pork belly tacos, macaroni and cheese and creme brûlée. The later 3 were delicious. The lettuce was okay but not excellent like the others. The price was also not worthy, like the others. The house came around with a sample of bourbon which was a nice surprise. It was a lovely evening.
Everything was absolutely wonderful. I’ll be back.
Well although the website said upscale it truly was not that. The menu consisted of basically bar snacks with 4 main entrees. Not much of a selection. The clientele were obviously aware it was not upscale as folks came in with a bar demeanor. The food was ok, nothing amazing and our server never replenished my husbands soft drink. If I lived here I would go for lunch after a run.
With reservations got right in, but people were flowing in nicely. Our server was wonderful helpful with wine choices. We had to shared plates out of this world good. To top of beef tenderloin cook perfectly and for dessert creme brulee.. in emoji😁🥰🤤
First time dinning here at a suggest of a friend. Wonderful atmosphere, great service the sharable plates were delicious. I will return next time in Des Moines
Food was excellent. Service start off great and then went to the pits. We had to grab her to order, we had to grab her for drinks and refills, we had to grab her for our bill. That part sucks. Food, however, was great.
RoCA is our favorite neighborhood date night place to go. The food and service are always consistent and outstanding. The cocktails and wine list are creative and fabulous. The nightly specials are always a hit. I highly recommend RoCA to all my family and friends who are looking for a great restaurant to go in downtown Des Moines!
Eclectic scene - phenomenal cocktails!
Everything was good, service was slow starting but overall a great experience!
El chapo drink was awesome. Flatbread was awesome! Highly recommend!!
Cocktails are amazing. High quality food. Love the shareable plate dynamic.
We were sat right away, but it took a while for our server to get to our table. The food was delicious. We shared plates and the items were brought out one at a time so that they would stay fresh.
One of the go-to places we take out of town guests and never disappoints.
First time at Roca and it won’t be the last. Good food. Good staff. Good experience.
One of the best in Des Moines! Great atmosphere! The drinks, food and service were all outstanding!
Amazing place. Great food
Loved their small plates, cocktails and dessert !!
We had a wonderful waitress named Jen.. She let us put our order in before her table of 20 which we were so thankful! The food was beyond delicious! We sat in the basement and unfortunately the table of 20 next to us was obnoxiously loud, but that was not the restaurants fault.. We will definitely be back!
Delicious food and great service! Wonderful place for a date night!
Compared to prior visits, we were disappointed with the food. Cheese and meat tray - $27 and it had 4 pieces of cheese on it? Granted, it’s not grocery store cheese, but really…
Also had the tuna - shocked at how little tuna was on the plate. Flavor was good, but not worth the price.
Service was great, but we probably won’t be back soon.
Food was extremely flavorful and portions were generous. We will be back!
Good experience for a bit of luxury and craft cocktails. Good was decent. They definitely try hard, so I’d go back. Love a place that’s less pretense and friendly. This they were
The food at ROCA is fabulous - unique and delicious offerings! I just want to keep coming back until I have tried everything on the menu!
