    My friends and I fondly remembered the Highland Park Rosebud so we thought we would try this location. We were very disappointed. Our waiter wasn't good, it took forever for 3 drinks to be delivered to the table and our food was slow in coming and mediocre. My fish was rubbery although the potatoes were delicious - it was even sent back and the replacement fish was just as bad. To give credit where credit is due - the manager did remove the cost of my entree from our bill. The restaurant was very noisy and crowded.

    The bread, olive oil and fresh parmeson cheese ( you have to ask for it) are addictive. Brick chicken is delicious and enough for 2 people. My husband had the salmon which he loved and also took some home. Casual atmosphere. Discount cards from Costco are an added treat. (20%)

    My first experience at Rosebud was terrible. But once I returned and learned what to order I am very pleased. I am Italian and picky while dining at Italian restaurants. The eggplant salad (we ordered ours chopped) is fantastic. If a menu has meatball salad on menu I order it, we alternate between eggplant and meatball salad. The brick chicken is fantastic. It is the gravy (red sauce) that is disappointing; tastes jarred/canned with no attempt to have it resemble "homemade". If you stay away from meals that require the sauce, you will be very satisfied, disappointed if you do not. Desserts are great be sure to leave room. I heard they have a new chef, until I learn what the new chef specializes in I cannot comment, perhaps Gravy, hopefully!

    Nothing special here. Do yourself a favor and go to Olive Garden, the food is better. Rosebud does have big portions but lacks flavor. Not one person in my group finished their meal and not one took home a doggy bag.

    On a lovely Saturday summer evening my party arrived promptly at seven. We were seated promptly and then ignored for the next ten minutes. No bread. No drink orders. Nothing! After finding someone who appeared to be the manager, a waiter was dispatched to our table. We were immediately informed that ours was not his table but he would take care of us. Meals and drinks were ordered and in a reasonable time food was served. Upon completion of dinner no waiter was to be seen. Again it was necessary to complain to get service. When leaving the manager was told of the service problems. He reacted by becoming surly and defensive. Rosebud hasten removed from my list of acceptable restaurants.

    We enjoy this Rosebud's a great deal. An easy walk from our home, it is a wonderful neighborhood place to go for an enjoyable casual meal. Initially on this visit it took awhile before we got our waitress's attention, but once we connected with our her she was wonderfully attentive. We had the De La Casa Salad and the Baked Ziti, both of which we enjoy and have had often. We sat outside on the patio on a pretty summer evening which added to the pleasure of the meal.

    We keep coming back to this neighborhood gem. The food is always consistent, but beware portions are large. We often split meals with no extra charge and still have plenty to eat. The food is delicious, hot and always tasty. I have never ordered anything on the menu I did not like. The service is always good and the staff always friendly. We love this place and will continue returning on a regular basis. I highly recommend this restaurant. With a plethora of Italian restaurants in the area, this is the best!

    After eating at the Rosebud on Taylor a few times, have to say this was disappointing. The tilapia was overcooked and chewy. One diner was gluten intolerant and they didn't seem to have a handle on that, even asked if they could eat potatoes! The grilled calamari was nicely cooked, however it was served with some obnoxious black pepper sauce instead of the standard olive oil/herbs.

    Not a good experience, although the space is nice and they have outdoor dining. Everything we ordered (white bean soup, shells and broccoli, seafood salad) would have benefitted from some herbs - or practically any flavor. But far worse was the service which was inattentive, by which I mean, we had to get up and walk across the restaurant to ask our waiter to come back to our table. This, for us, was a two-timer: First and last. We will not return.

    First time at Rosebud Deerfield. Veteran of many dinners at Rosebud Taylor Street. Brick chicken still wonderful. Baked Ziti outstanding. The true test will be the eggplant parmigiana. I'll have that next time! If it's close to the Taylor Street "EP" I'll be a regular. Love Rosebud for Italian Food!

    Our waitress was outstanding. She explained items on the menu, was great with our kids and had an upbeat attitude. Pizza was great, seafood salad was wonderful as was fish special. We had several doggie bags, even my 14 year old son took home food. We used to go to Highland Park location, first time here.

    The bar was staffed with a food server who was unable to mix drinks requested or locate the specific alcohol required to mix the drinks requested. He poured about 1/3 of a wine glass with house Merlot for which we were charged $12, well above the average restaurant price. Along with my chicken vesuvio dinner I requested a side Ceasar salad. What I received and was charged for was a salad large enough for our party of four. We should have been advised if a side salad was not an option and the decision left to us to make if we wanted to order a salad large enough to be a meal in itself. Due to our server doubling as a bartender we had too many servers and our simple requests were not met, ie., two requests for coffee were not satisfied.

    This was my first time at the Deerfield location, I was not impressed. Been to other Rosebud locations, is this the same group? I know Rosebud is known for classic Italian fare, but the food was rather bland and uninteresting. Service was severely lacking. We started with one server, then received a different server that was "helping out." Both servers were servicing the tables on either side of us and didn't so much as check in with us! It took forever to place our entree order and too long to receive the check. Although the bus-boy service was great. I recommend trying a different Rosebud location.

    Love the Deerfield location and will be back! A bit noisy on a Sunday night, but as crowd cleared, so did the noise. For our party of six, everyone was pleased with their food choices. Several of us had fish; snapper, tilapia and salmon--all very fresh and prepared to our liking. Skirt steak was cooked as ordered and smothered in carmelized onions, pasta was generous and veal was delicious. Only criticism is that desserts in the glass jars are not conducive for sharing.
