Six course New Year's Eve menu included a number of different takes on some old favorites . Heavy on seafood, of course, but with a new take on traditional fare. From ceviche to curry, the dishes did not disappoint. King's cocktails were the perfect fuel...More

Appetizers were really great. Dinner was okay, but when you have a set menu and cooks are making many dinners at the same time, you sometimes end up with dry or luke warm foodMore

Wow what a letdown. My wife and I decided to pay a little extra for a night of luxury and we're super disappointed. I don't know what chef Robs reputation is based on but it can't be the cold salty shrimp bisque or a flavorless...More

Large group of us had a variety of different meals. Every dish was superb. Mike, Tish, and Connie ensured that we were treated well. Not inexpensive but worth the cost.

Dinner at Chef Rob's to celebrate our daughter's wedding. Chef Rob and staff did a fabulous job with a delightful seafood-tastic menu. Even the grandkids enoyed their meals! Definitely the best restaurant in Hopkins, a must do!

Chef Rob changes his menu on a daily base inspired by the freshest products delivered to us by the ocean and the land. You can have your meals prepared in the kitchen, or cooked directly at your table on a 700F hot Rock, the 'Love on the Rocks' concept. Enjoy a 4 course gourmet menu or 'a la Carte' options while zipping a tantalizing cocktail overlooking the Caribbean sea. We do welcome vegetarians and will cater to any menu restriction, within reason.
