The staff were always friendly, we loved the decor and the big bar. It was always packed on a Friday night. My favorite was the Oysters Rockefeller.

Went here for a first date recently. Staff was amazingly helpful, friendly and professional. Offered me the pick of spots for the date, including the private table in ""the vault"". Fairly good spot for a romantic date. Crowd was light early, but decent sized later on (11:00+) and a good age mix. We ended up not having a dinner at all, but a couple glasses of wine and relaxed on the sofas behind the hostess stand. Live music was pretty good, but wasn't too loud to make conversation difficult.
Overall, the atmosphere was great, staff was incredible and wine was good at reasonable price.
I will definately be returning to actually try the food.
Will suggest to friends.

Rockafellas is a consistently good choice on the nights that my husband and I do not want to cook. The food is always good, especially the fried brie salad--awesome! I have to agree that the sweet potato fries are fantastic! The wine list would use additional variety, but on the whole, Rockafellas is a very nice, very classy place for lunch, dinner, or cocktail hour! Enjoy!

I'm a huge martini person and try them just about anywhere i go. If you're like me but want something a bit unusual, head here during october and try a pumpkin martini. The bartender was even kind enough to go a little heavy on the baileys for me because i'm not a big rum person. Best part about the food was the sweet potatoe fries, i dont care if you like sweet potatoes or not, you'll like these. Quiet and nice for lunch, crazy and fun at night.

I have been to the bar on a Friday or Thursday night, and loved it. They have a reggae band on Thursdays, which is fun. However, around 10 or 10:30 they start charing $10 cover, so go earlier when it's free or $5, the place will be packed anyways. Had their food for the first time today for lunch and really enjoyed it. The service was slow, though there weren't many people, and not too friendly, so if you are in rush, I wouldn't stop in. I had a chicken sandwich and asian salad, which were really good, but their sweet potato fries are awesome. I'll definately go back.

Rockafellas is definetely a change in atmosphere as the restaurant states. The menu has excellent choices and the live music (mostly jazz and the like) is extremely good. The atmosphere is very comfortable with an open and inviting feeling. I highly recommend Rockafellas to all.
