I have company in town this week and la roca has quickly become my favourite place to take people when we are going out. The patio is beautiful and in my opinion the best in the city. Service, drinks, food and atmosphere are all exceptional. My company always has an enjoyable evening and asks to go back when they visit.

Had an enjoyable dinner and drinks on the upper patio. I love that they now have a local beer menu and the summer food feather : Tostadas were to die for. Over all a great experience we will return soon

My first time experience with this new Mexican dining was very favorable. The food was delicious and expertly prepared and presented. The Tortilla soup was outstanding. I'll definitely return again for it and to explore other signature dishes in the near future. It also had a good value for my money.

We got together for my boyfriends birthday on a Saturday. We had a reservation for 4 of us on the patio and had no problem getting a table. Service was great, waitress was amazing! checked on us very often and kept our beers full:) Food was delicious and we had chips and salsa to start which was nice. Asked the waitress if they gave anything for birthdays and they brought us a stack of Churros and sauces, So good!! Would come again!!
Loved it!!

The food was excellent, the server was cold. She was saying all the right things however came off really annoyed to be there. Example we ordered the churros and I asked if they had whip cream and she was just like “no” and walked away. We probably would have paid for vanilla ice cream or whatever. She was just very brash and could have made our experience soooooo much better by being fun because we were fun and also got a better tip than 10%.

Made a reservation and was seated quickly , with the request of window seat. Cocktail menu was interesting - tried the mexican old fashion (delicious if you enjoy a very strong drink) mexican mule (delicious), and a mojito (also delicious). Shared an appetizer of taquitos and had the fish ceviche for my dinner - it was a winner - i would probably have to order the ceviche every time i go back. This was my second visit, and was just as good as the first time i dined there. Great ambience with dim lighting but tons of natural light from the large window front - very airy and open concept. Service was excellent.

Our first time here and it won't be our last. I had the carnitas tacos and my partner had the blackened trout. Both were very good - nice fresh flavours and an upscale take on Mexican classics. The service was friendly and fast even on a busy Saturday evening.

The appetizer we had was very good. The entrees were good (Taco Salads), but not overly generous. The worst experience was with the noise. It got louder & louder as it got later. Otherwise, Ok.

On Saturday night some friends and I checked out La Roca for the first time. From the outside, it looks like you're going to be entering some hip new salsa club with all the sugar skull décor, so we were surprised at the simplicity of the interior. This is not a place to go if you want a quiet place to catch-up with people - the positioning of the tables and the ceiling makes for a lot of noise (similar to a chain restaurant). The food was pretty tasty - enchiladas and skinny tacos were pretty close to authentic Mexican and the chips and salsa were on the money! I wish I would've tried their guacamole - in my mind, the question of authenticity always comes down to the guac!! The wait staff were very friendly and prompt. When my friend mentioned that her appetizer was not quite what she expected, our waitress was very apologetic and even removed it from the bill.
The chocolate banana empanada was to die for!!!
I will be back to check out the patio and the many flavours of margaritas this summer!!

A nice dining experience. A little loud, but perhaps normal for a Saturday night with larger groups dining nearby. Would recommend a booth, if available. Food was served hot, generous servings... a positive experience.

The food was great other than the fish tacos I ordered. They were quite bland and disappointing. My husband had the chicken tacos which were packed with flavour and delicious and our two boys ordered the blacked rainbow trout which they enjoyed fully! All the sides we tried were awesome. I would come back but avoid ordering the fish tacos next time.

I enjoyed the meal. I had the Carne Asada meal with the refried beans and the rice and I was happy with it. It was closer to authentic than any other sit down Mexican restaurant I have visited in the city in the past.

The music is a little loud but the restaurant has a great feel and ambience. The server was attentive despite being pretty busy. The food is probably a bit expensive for a typical burrito place but our table enjoyed the meal and left stuffed. We’ll be back for sure.
