    I love going to Rosebud as I always am happy with anything I order. They have great bloody Mary's and excellent grits (my favorite breakfast food). It is impressive to me that a restaurant that at a restaurant that has been open for this long, the chef/owner is still usually in the restaurant every time I eat here! Most would have moved on to expand the empire.

    We reserved a table for three. We were seated immediately which was nice. Our waitress showed up very soon after we were seated and took good care of us. The quality of the food was good. It was for Dinner on a Saturday night. It was a bit noisy. I had to talk loudly, to be heard. Two of us sat on chairs. One of us on the other side of the table had a booth-like cushy seat. I would advise the owners to purchase some cushy chairs so that everyone has the same level of comfort. I would still recommend the food and the service...Good Job!

    I chose Rosebud for an anniversary dinner based on outstanding reviews and drive to the other side of Atlanta for the meal. While some of the dishes were very good (Brussel sprouts, Rosebud burger) others were surprisingly flavorless (fried oysters, eggplant). I had ordered several desserts for the table to come at the end of the meal as a surprise. When the server brought dessert silverware after clearing the meal, so much for the surprise. Then we waited 20 minutes for desserts two of which weren't good (praline carrot cake and a bread pudding that had great flavor but was stale and hard). No one felt the meal was bad, just that some dishes and the service in general were average. Also out of too many things for a Friday night.

    I have been here several times for brunch and loved it; it was great to discover that their dinner experience is equally good. Rosebud has a nice variety with interesting ingredients for even basic recipes. Portion sizes were perfect for us (two women celebrating a 48th birthday). The restaurant was also very accommodating as traffic made us miss our 7 PM reservation.

    We enjoyed a nice dinner at Rosebud. Finding a parking spot was challenging in the neighborhood. The food was very good and service too. The wine was ok, and according to the waitress had not been stored with the bottle on its side.

    Restaurant was crazy busy on a Sunday at 1pm - thank goodness we had reservations! Or so we thought....We didn't get seated until 30 minutes after our reservation time. Not sure what the point is in having reservations. Restaurant was a little on the warm side, and seemed to have fans running. Server was nice, but a little slow. Didn't come take our drink order until 10 minutes after we sat down - and this was on top of already being 30 minutes after our reservation time! A little frustrating to say the least. But once our food was ordered, it came relatively quickly and was pretty good (maybe because we were starving by this time?!). Atmosphere is good; a little loud, but we enjoyed ourselves. House made pimento cheese was delicious!

    I took my siblings who were visiting Atlanta this past weekend for brunch and it was great. We made a reservation so were seated immediately (reservations are highly recommended on weekends for brunch!) and the service was attentive the whole meal. The nasty Mcallister was delicious and the grits are some of the best I've had in Atlanta.

    The waitstaff were friendly and efficient. I ordered the Summer veggie platter. The beets tasted like they were from a can, the heirloom tomatoes were tasteless, however, the succatash was very good. At $14 a plate - it was overpriced and under delivered. I also ordered a Moscow Mule - I could not taste the lime juice and it was served in a glass rather than a copper mug- very mediocre.

    This was our second time at the Rosebud for brunch and it was a completely different experience from the first visit. We had reservations for 12:45 and arrived 5 minutes early but we were not sat until 1:15. I don't really see the point in a reservation if we are still going to have to wait 30 minutes to get seated. Once we were sat no one came to our table to even greet us or take our drink order for about 15-20 minutes after we sat then once we did order food and drinks and took forever for our food and drinks to come out and the food was lukewarm by the time it got to us because it had been sitting for a while in the back. Overall I was very disappointed with our experience to the Rosebud. I expect much more from here.

    Brunch was outstanding! Reservations in advance, arrived on time, sat immediately. Four of us, all from Louisiana. Shrimp and grits were very good, up there with the best I've ever had. The stuffed pancake was also delicious, and the Royale breakfast sandwich and egg & grits bowl looked tasty. Portions and prices were satisfying. Attentive service. Great mimosas, too. Will certainly eat here again, as the rest of the menu looks very enticing!

    This isn't your typical southern brunch, the combination of contemporary and tradiational create an explosion of flavors in your mouth! There are no special orders here, you have to have it as it's listed on the menu. You can't order to go either. I love the speical drinks and would return again.

It was a great way to show out of town folks the types of wonderful dining options available here in Atlanta, and we were able to head across the street tot he Family Dog for some fun after-dinner cocktails as well.

    We enjoyed our dinner at Rosebud. We had never heard of it before until we received a gift card from a friend. The atmosphere was nice. The wait time for our order was good. The food was very good. The waitress was not very personable until the end of the meal. Tip? I don't think she smiled once. Other than that, it was a good experience.

    Rosebud is one of our neighborhood favorites! I love dining here. This experience was unique because our service wasn't that great (I think our waiter was just a little overloaded by the brunch crowd), but the food makes up for it! Especially the drinks. I will always be back to visit.

    We went to rosebud with a group of 5 for brunch on the 4th. While the food and drinks were great, the service was bad. I have no idea why they take reservations and say they listen to patio requests if they won't do it. When we arrived, the inside of the restaurant was empty and the patio was full. So if you want to sit outside don't even bother making a reservation. They told us it would be an hour wait and basically forced us to sit inside. We went there to enjoy the outdoors for brunch- what a waste. Then our server was completely uninterested in us and gave us attitude the entire visit. It seemed the head chef knew she was terrible bc he kept trying to check in on us. The chef and the food were the saving grace. Bad hostess, bad server.

    Came here for the first time for my birthday dinner. It was less crowded than expected for a Friday night. We were going out to a bar afterwards for drinks so didn't order any here; after we declined the wine menu our waitress ignored us for a good ten minutes! But she seemed to warm up after we (finally) ordered dinner and an appetizer. Would come back again for the food, but Yelp reviews were pretty accurate in that service is mixed

    When we walked in, the noise level was off the charts. We asked for a distant table and received one but the noise was still too loud. Service was good except a substitution was made on one of our plates and we were not informed ahead of time. The substitution was unacceptable. On this same plate, the fried chicken was tough. When we asked for bread we were informed that they were ou, so they gave us sliced bread. Wine wuss good. Salmon was good.

    The whole experience was really disappointing. The hostess forgot about us and seated at least 2 other tables in front of us. The service wasn't great either. The waitress forgot our appetizer, service was extremely slow and the food was ok. At the end of brunch the waitress didn't even ask us if we wanted coffee or dessert and just placed the check down. I won't be back there anytime soon which is sad seen as I have had great experiences in the past at Rosebud

    I enjoyed my meal at Rosebud. The food was tasty and the service was excellent. I have gone a few times and it never disappoints. My only complaint was the ambience. A bit noisy for brunch, and we were seated in the center of the room at a 2 person table. Slightly harder to hear with all the noise level around us. I have sat in the booths off to the side (with a larger party) before and that's much better.

    We went early for a Sunday brunch (9:30am). I like to judge a brunch place by their benedicts, except that they do not offer a traditional benny. This surprised me. I order the Disco Biscuit instead, basically a benedict though they don't call it that. It was ok. The pepper jelly was overly flavored with vinegar which unfortunately overtook the dish. My mother-in-law had a very nice egg dish, though the name escapes me. My wife had the pancake, and it was slightly burnt. We should have sent it back. One last thing, my wife is a nursing mom, so she switched from regular to decaf coffee and our waiter charged us for an extra cup w/o telling us. OpenTable misses the most important question: Will you return? For us, the answer is "Probably not"

    We have been here at least 6 times before and have always enjoyed the food and service. After this last visit we probably will not return. We were seated promptly and started with the mussels which we both agreed were tasteless except for a slightly fishy taste. She had the scallops while I had the Ahi Tuna with the squash puree. Here again we both felt that the food lacked taste. A glass of wine ordered during the main course did not arrive until we were done eating. When asked the waiter said that the bar was backed up.

    Atlantans line up out the door for weekend brunch menu, & Rosebud doesn't disappoint. Plus the fact they take reservations is reason alone to try them out! My friend and I each had a delicious full of flavor omelet. I was interested in a few other items on the menu, but ran into some roadblocks when I was told they never switch out the way they prepare their eggs in any of their dishes (I wanted scrambled instead of poached). We were also taken aback that our server chose to not make any recommendations on the menu (her own, or fan favorites) and basically told us that everyone loves everything and she could spend 20 minutes going over the menu. Bottom line, service could have been a bit warmer, but the spot is worth checking out.
