"This was listed as one of the top romantic places to go. So, I took my wife there for our anniversary. Forget all the talk about kilns, though that section was completely empty, they sat us at the top in a, bar area, I guess, next to two very loud tables with large groups. So much for a quiet evening. I asked for suggestions- the server suggested a burger?? Unfortunately, I chose it. Though, I ordered a medium well and asked him to err on the medium side, it returned well done and quite under salted. My wife's salad was good. The Bruschetta was ok. Didn't see my server often enough..."

"The bar list, specials list and base menu are all in need of a redesign.
The font on the specials list which the designer probably thought unusual calls attention to itself rather than the food offering. It is overdone and hard to read.
The specials list and spirits list are printed on heavy, stain-prone paper - again, hard to read and handle. Please at least laminate the spirits list. Mounting the specials list in a stiff back cover as many restaurants do makes them easy for guests to handle and easy to switch out. Finally, please coordinate the base menu and specials list such that they complement one another rather than confuse the diner.

"Rookwood is definetly one of our fav places to go. We have been going there for over 40 yrs. we have been there through all the changes and are extremely excited that the restoration turned out so well. Food has changed over the years definetly most choices are for the most developed palate. Always willing to try Chefs Specials. He gets the freshest of produce to incorporate in specials. Tonight our service a bit slower than we like or than their usual. Always a great place to go just the two of you "foodies". Or bringing family and friends the kiln rooms are always a hit esp. If they are into history. We went on dates here and now empty nesters and it's still relevant! Enjoyable evening."

"I found the menu item descriptions to be overly complicated. In addition the menu is small and lacks cohesion and variety. The Barnsdale burger and straw fries were good but for the price the burger was no better than one at Red Robin. The shrimp and grits had really good flavor and consistency but was served luke warm. Our server was very sweet but a little slow to initially engage us. The location, history and décor is awesome but the menu, food and service could be so much better. Overall a little disappointed but will likely give them another try at some point."

"Rookwood knows brunch. The drinks, the food, the music, & staff. We got there around 2 at which time business was definitely unwinding. My only complaint was that the service was pretty slow at the bar with not much going on. Took awhile to both get a menu and to get a refill of coffee. Otherwise, a great time."

"We were quickly seated at table in a great spot. However, there was a group in the kiln nearby who had NO control over the children in their party. Kids were shouting, out of their seats and moving around outside the kiln, so much that we couldn't hold a conversation. The wait staff was awesome in asking if we wanted to be seated elsewhere. We moved to much quieter spot and enjoyed a wonderful dinner."

"First time back in several years. Can hardly get a better location in Mt. Adams, parking nearby is available without fee at night. The food was very good and our server was very helpful and prompt. A bit pricey, but the location and ambiance make up for that. And the Celestial is about a 2-minute walk nearby, especially nice for their Sat night jazz show (no cover charge)."

"Since it was a Saturday night, it took over half an hour to get a table for two, even with a reservation. Having a bar in the waiting area was certainly a plus. Once we were seated the service was very prompt. The food was delicious and the portions were perfect for dinner. I would definitely recommend the Rookwood, but would advise you to avoid peak hours for the best experience."

"My dad had suggested to eat there for my birthday and the food was really great. The place itself was amazing with all the history and the service was excellent. I can't remember our servers name but she was amazing, friendly, and sweet. Everyone there was but she was great because she brought desert for my birthday and didn't add it on. Definitely will try and go back (not from Cincinnati, a few cities north of it)."
