About Steve and Rocky's

Steve & Rocky's purchases live oysters, lobsters, mussels, day boat caught fin fish, (un-soaked) sea scallops, fresh aged meats, extremely fresh produce, real heavy cream, pure unsalted butter, imported cheeses, and extra virgin olive oil. All of these fresh ingredients are rigorously specified based on our extremely high and exacting standards, painstakingly shopped based upon seasonality, and carefully inspected upon receipt. At Steve & Rocky's, critical ingredients are delivered daily to insure freshness. Their purveyors know that they will not accept anything but the absolute best quality ingredients and after years of working with them and competing to earn their business, they only send their very best. In the summer months, Chef Steve grows organic produce for the restaurant on his personal micro-farm.

Though many say Steve & Rocky's specializes in Seafood, Chefs Steve Allen and Chuck Rachwitz feel that the menu is diverse with something for every one's taste.

I was a little surprised at the poor service as I've not had these problems during past visits. After taking our order the waitress indicated bread would be brought to our table. It never came and only after we asked for bread when the appetizers arrived was it provided. Additionally, the appetizers took quite a while to get to our table and when they came the soup I ordered was cold. No one bothered to check that the soup must have been sitting out somewhere for a long period before it was served. That should not happen at a restaurant of this quality.

Family of four for dinner. $27 for $8 bottle of wine. Over priced entrees relative to portion sizes. Great bread. Great soup and salad. For me, it’s just over priced for what you get but it is a nice restaurant and apparently popular.

Great experience until the long wait for our entrees to come.
After waiting what seemed a very unacceptable time for them the steaks that were ordered were overcooked and just warm.
We were offered free desserts that placated the disappointment some.
Many trips to this location and by far the worst experience.

Our dinner was our traditional New Year’s Eve dinner at this restaurant. It was quite crowded but with our Open Table reservation we sat down within 5 minutes of our reservation time. The crowd at this restaurant is typically middle aged and up. The food was very good even though my Lamb Shank was a little more done than I like. The wait staff was absolutely fantastic and all of them wished us a Happy New Year. Our waitress was excellent and provided us excellent service. Overall it was an outstanding start to a great evening

Sadly this was our least favorable trip to Steve & Rocky's. Seating was well beyond the 7 pm reservation and the table was too close to the doorway with it's cold blasts every time somebody went in or out, too close to patrons and staff traffic and too close to the piano.

The acorn squash soup and wine were excellent. I don't know about my wife's dinner but my fillet was well beyond the medium that I ordered. Overcooked steak losses a lot. But we did enjoy each others company and won't hold the table or food preparation against them for long.
They basically are a fine restaurant but New Year's Eve seemed to overwhelm them.

While this was New Years Eve and the restaurant was very busy the service was very slow. We were seated promptly at the reservation time of 6:30 it was after 9:00 when our bill was paid. I had ordered a beer, the waitress asked if I wanted a glass and I indicated I did. The beer arrived-no glass. I asked again for a glass and after 15 minutes passed I finally asked a busboy who brought one right away. Again I realize that this was a very busy night but in spite of that the service was slower that it should have been.

At first there was some communication issues as to who our server was supposed to be so that was frustrating. I was disappointed that ordering filet mignon and given a steak knife, I was still having problems cutting it. I ordered medium rare, which is how it was prepared, and just never had to put that much effort into cutting the meat. Besides that the soup, which was the butternut squash, was excellent and the desserts were very nice also.

I was disappoited in the spinach salad that I ordered; the waitress seemed disappointed that I did not order protein such as the expensive extra salmon or chicken. I thought that the basic price was enough. The only ingredient seemed to be the spinach, no other items were even recognizable.

The house wine was over priced and tasted exactly like inexpensive wine; not worth the $6-8.00 price. Again I think that the waitress was disappointed that we did not order a half carafe or something. I am happy that we didn't.

It wa snowy icey day; there were a number of we older people in the restaurant. The parking lot had not been either salted or plowed, nor was the sidewalk leading to the front door cleared or salted. I saw one gentleman in particular needing help to manage these dangerous conditions. No restaurant is worth it and had the food been better it might make sense to risk life and limb but not for this place. Never again!

I used to think that this restaurant was part of the Rocky's on 7 mile. On inquiring, I found out that it is only the name that they share. Personally, it seems to be of a higher quality.

Had a group of 9. One person in our group ordered pork chops and they brought her perch. It took 20+ minutes for her meal to come. All the rest of us had already finished our dinners. One guest ordered filet medium and it came well done—no pink. We ordered 3 decaf cappuccinos. We had to ask for spoons for the coffee. They came with curdled foamed milk — couldn’t drink them. Our bill came with full price for the pork chop dinner. We had to ask for the manager to be comped. This was for a birthday dinner. Our guest was not offered a complimentary dessert. We are regulars at Steve and Rocky’s but it will be a long time before we return.

Our party of eight arrived for a 1:00 reservation and were immediately seated. We were finally presented with our bill and left at 4:30. Management was apologetic for being understaffed for the crowd (place was never more than 2/3 full). There were lengthy periods when our waiter was not seen anywhere in the restaurant. The food finally arrived hot and was fine. We were given discount cards for use in the future. Not sure if we will use them.

The food is always fabulous. The bummer part was that they were overbooked. We had a reservation, and did not sit for 45 minutes past the reservation time. When people make a reservation, the expectation is that the restaurant honor that and have designated tables for those reservations. Our waitress was so sweet and good, but service was super slow because of the overbooking. It took a long time to get drinks, or to take our orders. The managers stepped in great when they saw waitstaff was busy.

Underwhelmed is the word I would use. Between poor wait service and other staff dragging along the folding tray holder and the fruit flies in abundance, I found it not to be worth a return visit quite honestly. A member of my party even went to the manager and he said he'd take care of us but that basically meant he came and removed bread plates that had been left once our entrees had been boxed. Scallops were the delight of the event. Service was not. Even coffee service was poor.

There are so many restaurants in the Novi area, yet we consistently find ourselves at Steve and Rocky’s and are always disappointed when we go elsewhere. If you look at my other reviews you can see that I dine out a lot all over the country so I know what I like - this place always exceeds expectations!

For example, last night I was in the mood for a steak. Steve and Rocky’s isn’t known as being a steakhouse necessarily. There was a t-bone on the menu but I asked if they had any other steaks. The waiter went to check options in the kitchen and chef Steve himself came out to see what I had in mind. He helped me decide on a nice ribeye and it was as good or better than I’ve had I dozens of places that specialize in steaks! How many places can you go and get that kind of personalized service? Top notch food, great service, and a great vibe combined for another outstanding dinner out with the family! Thanks Steve and Rocky’s! We’ll be back often!
