Alyssa J Freitas
My name is Alyssa J Freitas and last night I came to your establishment. I am a senior at The College of New Jersey and have enjoyed College Night for the past two years. This evening, however, I could not have been more dissatisfied, frustrated, and shocked at the ineptitude of your staff. Your regular bouncer, who I have interacted with every previous time, stopped me and told me my license was fake. As a young looking 22 year old I can see why he might take an extra look, but what I cannot understand is how he could refuse to give me back my license so I could drive home and detain my property without authority. After being told that the police would come by to check the license, my friends and I continued to wait outside in the frigid weather. When 20 minutes had gone by with no update, I MYSELF called the Trenton Police to tell them that your bouncer was detaining me without authority; I could not drive back home without my license. After an hour long delay the police came and confirmed that, surprise, surprise, my license is real. It is outrageous that your bouncer would detain me, period. It is outrageous that he would do so after I called the police myself. And it is outrageous that I would receive such treatment after my steady patronage for the past two years. My friends and I will never be coming back to Rho and you can be sure that this story will be repeated across my campus far and wide; after all, I now need to look for recommendations for a new dance club to go to. One with competent employees. Disappointedly yours, Alyssa J Freitas
Very disappointed with outside management. Tonight would have been my first night at this very talked about & highly recommended "nightclub". Too bad I was not even able to get through the door. According to the bouncer on 8/31/17 (ladies line) everyone needs two forms of ID. I, not being a current student but of age (22) did not have two forms of ID on me. I asked if a credit card would be enough & he replied rudely, with "I need either your birth certificate, passport or ideally your social security card." I told him how was that fair if I was not a current student. I told him how uncomfortable I was with giving a stranger this information, he then proceeded to call me arrogant & threatened to call the cops if I did not leave the property. I asked him where that line crossed for the property line & he sent me to the middle of the road, in a street telling me to go there. This situation needs to be fixed. I understand that there are policies and rules, but those rules and policies should be stated on the website if anything, especially for newcomers. Since I came on a Thursday, College Night, I took it upon myself to look at the website before going & it clearly states on the website that with just one form of ID there would be a $15 cover charge. Case in point, if you are not a student, your drivers license wont cut it. They want all your information. Including your social, thats the most important apparently. Also, the bouncer this night, learn professionalism & kindness itll get you far in the world.

Note: This review is for Fridays All You Can Eat Buffet and the Club only. Date of Visit: Sept. 12th, Time of Visit: 7:30, then stayed for the live band This was the first time Ive stopped here since it has been Rho Ristorante Discoteca. Before I attended it when it was KatManDu. The best way I can do this review is to compare it to my former experiences at KatManDu--just to see who (in my opinion) did it better. When I did go to KatManDu, I would usually go on Fridays (because of the live band), with Saturdays being a close second. Overall design, I do like the look of Rho, particularly the outdoor area--more welcoming and conducive to live band play during the summer. I do wish the seating were more comfortable, since I couldnt sit at the bar or table for long periods of time due to the lack of cushioning. Food wise, I prefer the KatManDu ambiance. There used to be more selection with the All You Can Eat Buffet. The price increased (from $5 when it was Kat to $10 with Rho) but the variety as well as the quality of the food didnt quite stand out. The Riesling I had to drink was nice, and the bartender was friendly. The live band was terrific and they had a great rapport with the crowd. Yet it wasnt particularly crowded like it was back in the KatManDu days. By around 10:30, the crowd that was there started dwindling down. This spot has potential and Im definitely opening to coming back to Rho. Maybe next time Ill try it during normal hours to get the full spectrum of the food.
Unfortunately I couldnt get in as they have a two ID policy in place door. Didnt want to carry a wallet so only traveled here with a DL and Credit card. I understand the policy is to curb fake IDs, but Im 32 years old. I suggested they Google my name on my phone as there are a plethora of news articles with pictures that would verify my identity. I also asked to speak to a manager. The security folks just ignored me. Note there was no line or waiting patrons and plenty of security staff around so I feel it was a reasonable request. Whats most frustrating is that Im the DD for the night; I havent and wouldnt be drinking anyway. By and large, the staff was a bit unprofessional and standoffish. I observed them for a few minutes after this ordeal and they were just cherry picking people out of line - no hooded shirts or jackets, no hats, no white tshirts, no earrings of certain size, etc - all these people were sent away. I assume these are all preventative measures for the safety of guests, especially considering the area of Trenton, but it still seems overboard. And if its truly not overboard, then its a red flag and I wouldnt want to be here in the first place.
I had not been here in years and decided to give a it a try one Friday night. The attitude of the SO CALLED bouncer was REPREHENSIBLE! To ask for ID is OK, BUT to make a comment like..."your gettin a little old for this gran pop" was absolutely humiliating. To the bouncers :--) get some training in PR YA BUM! To the owners :-------( SHAME ON YOU FOR HIRING THIS LEVEL OF DECAY. This is one of the reasons I had not patronized previously....NEGATIVE REVIEWS!!! Weeks later I went over to Infinity Lounge and was treated respectfully and I only spent 10 bucks on drinks. The SECURITY PROFESSIONAL at their door even complimented me on my attire and the bar staff was World Class unlike your latrine which has NO CLASS.
Very disappointing for lunch. The lunch menu in past years had burgers, chicken, fish, and all sorts of tasty entrees. Now theres not even a menu! The "all you can stand" buffet is $8. According to our hostess, the theme changes from week to week. This week was "Asian." Small salad bar, nacho fixings (Asian??), fatty ribs, overcooked fried rice and lo mein, some sort of mystery stir fry, slices of banh mi, and undercooked slice and bake cookies. At least the weather was good, so we could sit outside. Otherwise, a dreadful meal. Oh, and dont let me forget plastic cutlery and plastic plates! WTH?
