Worth a visit simply for the cauliflower salad. It was so unique and delicious! Everything we ordered was inventive and flavorful. We sat at the bar and the bartenders were knowledgeable and friendly.

My wife had visited before; first for me. Intrigued by a 'Dirty Wolf IPA'-quite good. Hadn't enjoyed a Lobster Roll since New England-pricey ($16) but-worth every penny! This was a casual place and perfect for lunch. Service was good.

Bistro Roca is a comfortable place for a nice night out. The location is wonderful, but maybe I missed something? Service seemed rushed and food was just 'okay'. At this price point, I was expecting a bit more. Flavors of menu items seemed a hodge-podge...More
