We drove in and was greeted by the Richardson's valet staff. As it turned out Richardson and Rokerij were owned by the same owner and they share many menu items. Rokerij is set up like a bar, There are bar seating around the open kitchen which is not common in Arizona. We had Osso Bucco, Top Sirloin, New Mexico combo,... More

We live in Florida, but we gave eaten here four times in the past year or so. We love eating in the cellar. It is like being in a mountain cabin. It has a fireplace and seating, large bar and two large booths. We have never had a bad anything here. Service, ambiance and of course food. We had the... More

Came into Rokerij thinking I was entering Richardson's (the other side of the building). The menus are very similar (Rokerij is supposed to offer more continental style food with the name referring to a Dutch smokehouse, I'm told, but they still offer many of the New Mexican dishes here). I came for New Mexican food, and I had the chile... More

Decided to give this place a try, and I was impressed. The services was great, our server was knowledgeable on the menu items. Very personable. The best part was our dessert. Definitely will come here more often.

The Rokerij serves very good food, has absolutely excellent servers, and can be a superb dining experience. The wine list is satisfactory, and our meals were varied and creatively designed. The roasted garlic appetizer is huge-much too large for two people! My husband's green chile potato (a signature dish) was a wonderfully flavorful accompaniment to his steak. My swordfish was...

We were taken to Rokerij by family who live in town when we were visiting. What a great choice they made. AJ our server could not have been more accommodating. We started with a few appetizers. Brussetta to die for. And shrimp with toast points. So yummy! All 5 of us had something different. From schnitzel to pasta and chicken... More

The over-whelming feeling that I had was the everyone of the staff was glad to be there, the customers sensed it and all felt at home and comfortable. The food? I... More

This was our first visit to Rokerij and we felt comfortable as we stepped into the cozy dining area. The menu and food are very similar t o next-door Richardson's, because they have the same owner. If you are looking for spicy New Mexico cuisine, then you have come to the right place. However, there are options for those who... More
