Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Entertained some friends who just moved to the area at Rosebud this weekend and really enjoyed it. 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."

  • "this was my first time here. the food was great - i would definitely recommend it! however, just be prepared that they run out of things on the menu (probably because everything is local - i think). espresso machine was also broken so i couldn't get a cappuccino. otherwise, it was great!"

  • "Ron Eyester knows his business and it shows (and tastes). The grits with goat cheese, the chicken sandwich, salmon, stuffed pancakes, biscuits were all amazing! The only problem with going is that now other restaurants really pale in comparison..."

  • "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."

  • "This place is amazing for brunch! I am definitely going back to try their lunch and dinner options. You must try the Fried Grits and if you love oysters there is a great Fried Oyster and Grits brunch option. Love that they have Friday brunch!"

  • "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."

  • "I have gone to Rosebud three times. Each time the food was wonderful and each time the service was horrendous. I have had the gambit from a rude passive aggressive waitress to a waiter that basically disappeared after delivering our coffee."

  • "Rosebuds is a neighborhood restaurant that has a nice menu with many choices and is reasonably priced. Staff is friendly and efficient. Good wine selection by the glass. Casual dress and suggest reservations on weekends. Nice bar if you prefer to sit there for dinner. Portions are generous and quality is great."

  • "You can always count on a great meal at Rosebud! Our only complaint was that when my meal arrived, there were only 3 scallops on the dinner plate. They were delicious, medium/large and surrounded by a sophisticated nutty brussel spout-mash. But I was still hungry."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "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"

  • "food always good. kitchen should pay attention to doneness of meat as requested by patron! strip steak ordered medium came out med well. burger ordered medium and came out extra well done! mark of an excellent chef is getting temp right! too hungry to send back on a table for four as we wouldn't have eaten together. getting this wrong spoils everyone's meal! that said, we love rosebud and will simply caution wait staff in the future to ask chef to "get it right"!"

  • "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."

  • "Everything was wonderful, from the décor to the food to the service. And such a nice mix of people and age groups. It felt like a really nice Sunday, the way they used to be when family and friends gathered as a weekly event. Thanks Rosebud!"

  • "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""

  • "Twice large parties have made the experience miserable. This time they were able to move us, and another party otherwise we would have hated the experience. The food was not as good as the last few times 3 out of the five of us noted."

  • "We really enjoy coming to Rosebud. The food is pretty good, not overly complicated and great value for a nice place. The wine and cocktail list is nice and they have a very fair corkage program. Service is friendly and a perfect complement to the styling of the restaurant. Tip - The front room is less noisy than the back."

  • "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."

  • "The food was wonderful! My boyfriend and I went here for his birthday dinner. For his entree he had the trout, which was INCREDIBLE! I highly recommend it. I had the braised lamb shank. The meat literally fell off the bone! The only negative of our experience was that we were sat in the back area. The tables in the front area are much nicer and have more character. The back felt more like a banquet room and we were the only ones sitting back there. I was looking for more of a fun cheery ambiance for his birthday, but overall everything was great!"

  • "We had a 10:15 reserv and checked in 4 minutes late. After 15 minutes of waiting, I asked the hostess if our table would be ready soon. She replied "since you physically checked in late, I just couldn't hold your table." We were seated around 10:45. I have never experienced that in any other Atlanta rest. where I had a reservation. I know that our table was not given to another party, it was just not ready. I would have appreciated "I'm sorry, your table will be ready soon" over a rude, snarky hostess....especially on Father's Day. This is the 2nd time this has happened at this rest...last time we even arrived early. Food is always great, but unfortunately your experience starts when you walk in. Won't be going back."

From the different and brilliant dishes (esp. the sauces), to the ambiance of the surroundings, rosebud has catered to all of my requests. The bar is perfect for meeting a friend, although it can make you feel a little like a vulture looking for a seat at the bar at the busy hours (it's never much of a wait)."

  • "Some friends and I recently enjoyed Monday Night Brunch at Rosebud, and clearly were not disappointed. Yes, it's pretty much the same menu that's offered during the restaurant's traditional brunch service, but the fact that you can nosh on brunch food on a Monday night is a clear win. A couple of us ordered grits, to which my friend replied, "I really could just nosedive directly into this bowl of grits." So yeah, it's that good. Rosebud was already my weekend brunch go-to, but I won't ever make the mistake again of missing out on this Monday night gem."

  • "Rosebud was high on my Atlanta restaurant bucket list as it had been mentioned in an article I tore out of a magazine over a year ago. We were not disappointed. Our party of 4 all had a draft beer and the smoked trout to start off - which were both delicious! I had the trout entrée and I cannot say enough about how fantastic it was! I also asked that my Brussels sprouts accompaniment be changed to their special side of Brussels sprouts sauerkraut and I am so glad I did. Both the trout dish and the Brussels sprouts were, truly, one of the best things I've eaten out. Just fantastic. Rosebud uses thick cut bacon in both these dishes, but just enough, to add a fantastic smoky depth to each. I ate every single bite! Great neighborhood vibe, too."
