A word from Rose's Cafe
A favorite in the Cow Hollow neighborhood, Rose's Café is a hangout for locals who bask in the sun at sidewalk tables, duck inside for a cappuccino, or stay for a leisurely meal. Many customers are regulars who frequent the pretty bistro-café that offers table service and some of the most deliciously affordable food in San Francisco - Italian fare created using organic local produce, fresh seafood, humanely raised meats, and free-range poultry. Rose's artisan bakers bake a daily selection of pastries, desserts and breads. Menu highlights include: pizzas, daily soups and house made pasta. Accepting Reservations for Dinner Only! Parties of 6 or more may be charged an 18% gratuity.Continued

  • "Rose's is a neighborhood gem with both indoor and outdoor dining. The menu changes frequently but there are always a few favorites that remain. Ask the waiters about what they like and you will always get a good recommendation. Always a fun time. Enjoy !"

  • "I've always considered this a lunch place and remember when it served lots of"lunchy" things that were pretty much bread based. Now it seems Rose is trying to masquerade as a dinner restaurant. It didn't fool us. Few selections but in a wide range of categories, antipasti, pasta, pizza, sandwiches, salads, entrees. I ordered what sounded interesting--braised artichokes with prosciutto and goat cheese. Turned out the artichokes were braised long ago--before a mass manufacturer put them in a jar. My husband's pizza was poor. An Italian, he ate just about half and pushed it away. My companion's pork loin turned out to be a pork chop. She's a regular and wouldn't say much else about it. And wow was it noisy. A neighborhood place that is no gem!"

  • "Had a table for 7 on New Year's Eve, our server was having a bad night, didn't write down our order and had to go over it with us verbally three times. Asked for bubbly water twice and it never came and ditto for a few drinks. Ordered champagne and wine, had to ask three times. When food came it was plunked down in front of whomever with no regard to who ordered what so we rejostled everything ourselves. Our table was billed a mandatory 20% service charge, fair enough on New Year's Eve, but our server seemed to have that in the back of her mind as she chatted with other servers and watched the clock, virtually ignoring us all night. Food was great but I'll never go there with a large party again, very disappointing."

  • "Local neighborhood gem. Good pastas, pizza, chicken, salads, soups Quiet enough for conversation. Friendly and efficient wait staff. a regular place for quiet comfort."

  • "Loved the feel of this cafe from the minute we walked in. It had a nice charm to it and the staff was very welcoming. We dined early so it wasn't crowded or noisy, and the service was fast without being rushed. Great food, good wine...we loved it. Will definitely be back and will recommend this to friends."

  • "Having been to this restaurant a few times and having a good experience, was looking forward to another good meal. Unfortunately, the experience on the latest visit was very disappointing. The 2 entrees ordered were mediocre at best, and well below expectations especially for entrees that were nearly $30 apiece. My wife had the snapper which was very bland, and the accompanying vegetables were barely edible. My dish was the skirt steak, which didn't taste bad but the serving size was about that of an appetizer. Way too small for nearly $30. Needless to say, we won't be going back or recommending this place to others."

  • "very friendly, accomodating, relaxed, welcoming. Two of us had a pizza which was divinely crisp. The other two had fish and chicken entrees, which they claimed to love as well. Even though we were all pretty full after almost licking out plates clean we couldn't resist the pana cotta dessert with 4 spoons. No regrets there! It was light, tangy and a perfect closure to a lovely evening. Great buzz and cozy atmosphere. Soft lighting, but not so low that you couldn't really connect with your table. I hate dark restaurants. Would highly recommend to anyone!!!"

  • "The service here is great but the food was bland and overpriced. The furniture and carpet are getting tired as well. Pleasant but in San Francisco that is not high praise"

  • "I've heard about this italian café and i was in this neighborhood with a friend, we were hungry so i've reserved a table for 5 minutes later. We've ate great ravioli and gnocci and drank a good glass of syrah, and the apple tarte with cinnamon ice cream is delicious! The service is nice, the atmosphere is pleasant, try it if you are nearby!"

  • "Food very good. Only bad thing was the desert. Waitress hyped the bread pudding and it was awful. It did not have the texture of bread pudding at all and tasted like lemon cake."

  • "Enjoyed my recent dining experience at his establishment. The employees were so welcoming and obviously enjoyed where they worked...many times that makes such a difference. Food was good and the ambiance made you feel like you were in a cafe in France. We'll definitely b making another visit very soon!"
