    Charming restaurant. The restaurant decor lends the spot for a romantic dinner. The chicken entre was delicious as the brussel sprout side. If one is staying in midtown or the upper end of Manhattan it is quite a trek.

    The room is stunning. Incredible ambiance. I was not blown away by the food, overly salty in most cases. The happy hour is a great bargain. Would probably go back for that.

    Truly one of the most beautiful spaces I've seen, with an inviting main dinning area, flowing into an al fresco-style patio, which opens to more seating in a space below, which appears to be ripe for private events. Additionally, a hip front bar area and very cool fixtures, attentive and friendly staff. Food was not good. We ordered most everything on the menu, and found no stand-outs – dishes were either unpalatably over-salted, over-sauced, over cooked or poorly conceived. Chicken wings seemed drowned in KC Masterpiece; Octopus tasted like good chicken wings; $42 lamb for two was a DYI Gyro kit, with paltry display of shredded meat at center stage; pasta – uninspired; fish – overdone. Fresh Berries –so sugary, we dared each other to taste

    Situated on lower East Broadway, Rosette is an unlikely paradise. Once you enter there is a quirky lounge filled with couches and lightening from the 60s and 70s, and a bartender that knows just how to make the perfect cocktail. Then behind the curtains is a fabulous dining room with a comfortable and romantic vibe. It is a little jewel that extends to good service and food. Will certainly return.

    love Rosette - the food is exceptional. we often get almost all the appetizers and sides and make a meal of that especially when with friends who are new to rosette. make sure you get the brussel sprouts!!!, the kale sprouts salad, the beets, the roasted avocado, the flatbread - ask for the special of the day, this past week we had the avocado and it was delicious. the cavatelli pasta is also worth getting. the desserts are underwhelming in my experience but.... they also have great cocktails and a good wine list. menu items that i might avoid: the radishes, the chicken wings.

    The food was great and fit for a foodie, as well as affordable. The ambiance was romantic and quanit, although in an odd part of town. The service was a struggle through out the meal. We had to leave the table to get the waitress for every transaction of the meal.

    Be careful, this place softly lulls you into comfortability. One hour all of a sudden becomes three - and you are happier for it. The design is beautifully relaxed, drinks are perfectly right, food is spot on delicious. Met the hostess, the bartender, the cook and the owner who were all friendly and accommodating. I recommend it for an intimate meal for two or a raucous group of seven (which we were). There is also a private outdoor dining area with a separate bar. Yes, it is that fabulous. Do come here, you will leave (eventually) so, so happy and content.

    GORGEOUS space, friendly service and delicious food. recommended dishes: the brussel sprouts (amazing!!), wood fired beet, the wild mushroom flatbread, cavatelli pasta (delicious!) good but not outstanding: the baby octopus, the chicken wings, the ricotta cheesecake (good presentation but not memorable) the service was attentive and very friendly but by the time our main dishes were served, the service seemed to fall apart. there was a really long wait (about 10 mins) between the time my pasta came out and my friend's dish arrived at the table.

    Tuesday night visit. Restaurant was half full. Decor is very cool and well thought out. Food was an A minus. Brussels were amazing as were the lettuce cups with miso (so refreshing). Honey cod was clean and flavorful. Only negative was a pistachio pesto Cavatelli was surprisingly lemony. Menu didnt mention but after asking waitress why it was so lemony she stated they put a lemon powder in it. Was unexpected and not a flavor we were in the mood for in the cavatelli. They should disclose on the menu but really at this point we were pretty full. Other then that the place is defnitley worth a visit. Lots of vegetarian options and overall cool place that is a relatively easy res to get/make(a huge plus these days). Solid Meal and experience

    We wanted a fancy dinner out with special food. We got such nice service and the food and cocktails were amazing! The Lamb for 2 was interesting and tasty, the wangu beef was also delicious! For appetizers we loved the wings (go figure) and the leeks. The ambiance was soft and inviting, with an artsy feel. We really loved it!

    The staff is extremely courteous. The food was phenomenal! I had the lamb for 2 which was unbelievable! It was definitely a nice surprise from what i expected. My GF had the cod in a miso style soup and she loved her dish! The dessert was also excellent! The portions were just right and didn't leave you hungry or stuffed. I would recommend this place for any group of 6 or for a romantic date night! There is even a great place to host a small dinner for 20.

    Love the decor. Love the food. The bar service was beyond slow. Not sure if it was the waiter or the bar. We waited FOREVER for drinks at our table while having dinner. If it was only one round I would not even mention it, but it was both. And the restaurant was only half full. For compensation we were given free desserts which was a kind gesture. But, we did not even want dessert. One of the rounds taken off would have been a more direct solution to the problem. But, I would definitely give it another try.

    I went to Rosette because I read a review of its hamburger and I was in the mood for a good hamburger. It was big, juicy, and had a good sauce on it. It was very filling--just what I wanted. I wish I had had room for their homemade ice cream. It was an unusual flavor and I would have liked to have tried it. Maybe next time.

    The service at this pleasant restaurant was just below average even though it was not busy. The appetizers were delicious (especially the beets). The burgers were tasty but very undercooked for my taste (I ordered medium well and got rare). The atmosphere and decor are lovely.

    IN a neighborhood where eating out means sitting in the lap of the person next to you in crowded tiny restaurants, Rosette is a gem. It is comfortable with ample room to engage in conversation with your friends without worrying that others are listening in. The food is wonderful - I have eaten at the other incarnations of this Restaurant Space (Broadway East et al.) and this is by far the best chef. The waitstaff is attentive, and the decor is lovely. I am so glad this place is open again.

    While we're not vegetarian, we couldn't get enough of the tahini dipping sauce and fresh crudite; the roasted avocado; and the roasted brussel sprouts. They specialize in all kinds of textural garnishes interwoven with their veggies. But also the vegetable-infused broth for the honey-glazed black cod was so delicious we drank it down like soup. Be mindful to come early however - by 8pm the decibel levels were terrible for people aged 50+ who are beginning to lose their hearing and crave hearing their own voices.

    Place is lovely. Food is quite tasty, but the service was horrible. What added insult to injury was that they never proactively apologized for all of the delays, it was only when we complained that they made excuses about having two large parties that night. First of all, you are a restaurant, you should be prepared for that. Secondly the apologies for not that strong, but mainly from the head hostess or manager...not sure exactly of her role. Too bad...our waitress was lovely but stressed, and she was actually quite apologetic but the the management should really get their act together.

    First came the cocktails, which set the tone for a lovely evening. We shared several small plates. The brussel sprouts, kale bundles and beets were all great. I'd say the weakest dish was my husbands cavatelli. I rarely say I want to go back, but in this case, we want to go back. Cool location too.

    I really want to love Rosette, since I live in the neighborhood. The room is pretty, if quite noisy when full. The menu is interesting, good wine list, and the service is very good. The night I was there I think they were a bit overwhelmed, though: they had recently been mentioned in the NY Times - which always draws a crowd - and there was apparently a private party going on in the downstairs space. We waited almost 15 minutes for our first round of drinks to arrive; several of the small plates we ordered arrived overcooked; and dinner lasted for three hours (we were having a great conversation, but still). That said, I'll definitely give them another try and hope they can rise to the four or five star level where they should be!

  • Very disappointing for brunch
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 5/10/2014
    Despite the positive reviews, our experience with brunch was as follows: A fried chicken sandwich was sent back because the meat was raw inside. A salad featuring kale was sent back because the kale was fried, over salted and basically inedible. (Both were taken off the bill.) The pancakes were extremely good. The restaurant decor was pleasant but I would avoid brunch -- the menu was quite limited with very few vegetables -- until the kitchen gets its act together. (One final note: one of the bathrooms was out of soap; doesn't anyone at the restaurant check?)

    We dined at Rosette this Saturday. Loved the ambiance and decor of the place. My wife and I thought they tried a little too hard with the dishes. Good example was the pork belly I ordered, Pork belly itself came out on the dry side served topped with some type of cream along with tomato puree and side of greens. Combined I think all of the ingredients didn't come together well and would have much preferred if they simplified the dish along with doing a better job cooking the pork belly. Very same comment on the other entrees we ordered. Appetizers were good but not amazing.
