This is a really special restaurant with amazing food and ambience. We love sitting in the mezzanine area overlooking the bar. We enjoyed the rack of lamb and filet mignon which were two of the specials. The waitress was excellent and made sure everything we ordered was delivered perfectly. I always ask for sauces on the side and I was... More

I really have mixed feelings about this restaurant. The chef obviously is amazing and creative. The food was very good, creative and packed with flavor. My problem came with the waitress. Borderline rude and ignored us. The other servers who cleared plates, filled water glasses were so pleasant. I hated to leave the server a tip but so appreciated the... More

It is always an unpleasant experience when someone serving you seems uninterested in you during your dinner. Occasionally there are reasons for that; a server in a section with several tables seated at once so they have little time to spend at any one table, a brusque personal style, a reticent server with a gregarious customer, simply a server having...

We rented the amazing Clawson Historic House(no longer a B&B and redone & under new ownership, see my forum post) , whose on site caretaker Lee Causer, recommended Cafe Roma. It was a good choice. The service and the entrees were the star here. The absolute best rack of lamb with vegetables and gravy my husband and I have ever... More

Thanks for taking the time to write your review. It would be helpful to us if you had detailed why you were a bit disappointed with the food. We can't correct mistakes when we don't know what we are doing wrong. We hate to lose loyal customers. We hope you will try us again. More

I have lived in Bisbee for 17 years, and this is the restaurant to which I take my friends and visitors if I want them and myself to have a great experience. Rod Kass, owner, is an award winning chef and his restaurant is continually rated as one of the best restaurants in Arizona. His food creations are wonderful and... More

I have heard nothing but rave reviews about Cafe Roka since I moved to AZ. I finally got a chance to try it for my and my husband's 6th anniversary. We took our father-in-law along as well. I made sure we had reservations since I heard it's always recommended. When we arrived, we had a small wait, not big deal... More

My parents took my wife and I out for a birthday/anniversary dinner. We had been here one other time. The food is good. The staff will work to accommodate any dietary restrictions and are knowledgeable of the dishes. Ask questions. My mother and I each got boneless short ribs this time. They were not what I was expecting, but they... More

We have been going to Bisbee to eat at this restaurant for five years. We meet friends there and have always enjoyed our meals there. Last night we were disappointed by bad customer service and mediocre food. Very sad as that will be our last visit! First, two of four water glasses were dirty. Then, one member of our party...

It is unfortunate that you had a poor experience at Cafe Roka. It certainly sounds as if the server seems to have made some mistakes and could have been solicitous. If there are problems with a main dish (at any restaurant, not just ours) we urge customers to ask the server to replace it. About separate checks...we do not use... More
