We went here on a Saturday night for dinner. The restaurant was reasonably busy, but not every table was full. (7pm) The concept is interesting- they bring your food out on a slab of granite, and you can leave it on the hot rock until it is cooked to your liking. Not bad. One note, though- in the winter, the... More

I love the idea of cooking my own meal on a steaming rock. Unfortunately the concept doesn't seem to scale for large groups. My most recent visit to Rok showed how challenging it is for this restaurant to provide a consistent level of service for a large group

It's a lot of fun to cook your own food on a lava rock, but the prices are not cheap. It has cheese fondue for appetizer, and chocolate fondue for desserts.

If you are looking for creative ways to spend stacks of cash lying around the house, this is not a bad option. The fun part of the meal--cooking your food on a table-side "rock"--is indeed a novelty, but that experience is the chief benefit for the inflated bill. There is nothing special about the food quality or its presentation or... More

Irish native here, who visited this restaurant while holidaying in California, and it was without doubt, one of the best meals I had in my mouth long visit there. The fondue is heavenly here, and the chocolate fondue is also nice, if slightly heavy. All in all, the food here is to die for, your taste buds will thank you... More

Such a great spot! The service was superb (experienced, fun, petite, blonde women 😊) Delicious cocktails and the Swiss cheese fondue was delicious! The visit with the weather, food and drinks were overall a 5++

I initially was going to rate 4 out of 5 but decided 5 stars was actually acceptable all thanks to location and outside eating patio. It was a really fantastic sight at sunset, made me feel like I was much further from home than I was. We are not new to fondue and thanks to groupon, found a great deal... More

We had a great anniversary dinner and decided to make it a tradition. It was even better! The meat was succulent, the sides were great and the ice cream the treated us with (forgot about that part!) was creamy and delicious served on a frozen stone. The service was great - we definitely have to come back sometime to eat... More

Description
Located on Historic Murphy Ave. in downtown Sunnyvale, Rok, Stone-Age Fondue & Steakhouse is a truly unique dining experience. Our signature specialty is called Hot Rok. Premium entrees are delivered to your table seared and sizzling on hot volcanic Roks. Diners bask in the aroma as their entrees cook right before their eyes. Every bite is hot, juicy, and delicious, ready to be enjoyed as is or dipped in a variety of our specially-created dipping sauces. We also offer the best part of fondue...cheese appetizer fondues and chocolate dessert fondues. If you combine Hot Rok with fondue in a pot (we call it the Rok n Pot) we guarantee a wonderful evening of dining enjoyment. Our full bar features fruit-infused vodkas and a wine list that offers many varietals by the glass. If coming just for the Rok, you can be in and out in an hour. If enjoying the Rok n Pot, you should plan on approx. 2 hours. Please join us for the ultimate evening of dining enlightenment.
