Happy to find a Turkish place!
I had the Hunkar Begendi, a new favorite dish! So nice to get real Turkish food- and in Clifton, of all surprising places. We definitely will be going back. We miss Temel and Nizams, so it's good to have someone with Iskendar kabob nearby!

i always enjoy the food at
i always enjoy the food at rosemary's but never go because of the strip mall location. if it was freestanding like sweetwater i'd probably eat there at least every other week.

Delicious Easter Brunch.
Delicious Easter Brunch. They didn't have a special Easter Brunch menu, just their typical Saturnday/Sundary Brunch menu, but it was wonderful. Their Eggs Florentine are a delight, french toast delicious and other items order off the regular menu (Calamari) were perfect as always. Rosemary's Thyme is one of my "go to" restaurants for any meal.

We really enjoyed our lunch/brunch here. One of us had the Hunkar Begendi, which is awesome! We also had a Spanish omelette, which really was delicious, although having potatoes on the side of something with potatoes in it was a lot of potatoes. That said, it was really delicious. Our friends had the adana kabob, and the wrap chicken sandwich, and the Lahmahcun. They are all great, I can recommend them!

Happy Mothers Day
I chose this spot for a saturday night dinner with the folks because my mom has recently become vegetarian. Rosemarys Thyme has a good selection of Vegetarian dishes. One of their specialties are these small appetizer plates (like Tapas). Ther service was great, the food came out very fast, and was hot and delicious. They seated us right way, it was a little noisy, but then, so are we. We had a great time, and felt very comfortable. They didn't try to rush us out, even when it was obvious they were closing they didn't seem to mind us taking our time leaving. A great Find!!!

Great neighborhood restaurant
We have been there several times and the food is always amazing. Good selection and nice ambience. Service can be great on a Friday night but spotty on the weekends. Make reservations for weekend nights -- it gets crowded and there is a wait.

This is such a gem! I didn't realize that it was tied to the Rosemary's Thyme in Dupont before I came in, but you can certainly tell by the quality of the food- it's delicious! We had a mix of offereings between breakfast and lunch and I had the Manti which has the most AMAZING sauce! I was attracted by the Turkish offerings as I don't find many places in VA that have them and would certainly come back next time I'm looking for those items.
Also, the staff is SUPER friendly and were wonderful with our 2 kids.

M husband loves a good flat pizza, and this was only our 2nd time dining at this restaurant. We really enjoy it. We had 2 pizzas and a pasta for 4 of us and that was plenty. We also shared a large salad first which was wonderful. Although we've only been there a few times the food is very consistent and the service is too.

We started dining at this
We started dining at this restaurant a few months ago. We really enjoy having a local place that serves good pastas and pizzas, and this is it. We all enjoyed our meals and the service was very nice. We took advantage of half price bottled wine night as well.

We took a large group for a family gathering recently and got excellent food and service. This is always one of our local favorites and they did not disappoint on delivering for our out-of-town guests.

While the restaurant is termed Mediterranean the menu seemed more Turkish in flavor. My wife and I went mostly for the Mezes menu for dinner because we could get a better sampling of their food. Each dish that we had was very good - lamb skewer, squid in a tomato-based sauce, roasted eggplant and a spanakopita. We would have happily ordered more if we were not full but we were very satisfied with what we had.
This is very casual place located in a plaza mall. We likely would not have stopped their if we had not read about it in Open Table.
The tiramisu is good, not fabulous, as others have mentioned. The mascarpone was light and fluffy buy the lady fingers were soaked and had little, if any, essence of an espresso flavor.

Second time around dining here. Many excellent choices. Both meals were great. Half price wine bottles until 7 (this was a Monday night). Service was excellent!! Will definitely be back.

The Mediterranean cuising
The Mediterranean cuising is very good, flavorful and not over spiced. We dine at Rosemary's Thyme quite often and it is busy on Friday night and reservations are recommended.

Very nice & much improved!
My wife and i had quit going to R&Ts several years ago due to a decline in the quality of the food. Since then they've changed the menu to feature small plates and other new items. They must have changed chefs too, since the food was excellent this time around! We were seated promptly, tthe service was attentive, and the food was very good. We will definitely put this rplace back on our favorite neighborhood restaurant list!

Very good Turkish food. Flavors
Very good Turkish food. Flavors very authentic. Went on a Monday with few other diners and noise level was low. Might be loud with a full house.
