    Once again, Rosie's accommodated or large group (14) with efficiency and warmth. Dominique was a great server. Rosie's is a favorite for great Italian but also creative seafood (we love anything "stacked").

    Disappointed. We made a reservation. ... and then waited and watched the hostess seat her family ahead of us. Then she tried to seat my fiance and I outside in a Drafty, dark "patio" area... directly next to a loud 12+ top of high school homecoming goers. I requested another table and was met with a huff and an eye roll, but a much nicer table inside. Our server was nice but I forgot her name. The steak on my salad was very over cooked but I didn't mention it or send it back, and I'm sure they would've fixed it if I had. Overall "eh" not terribly impressed, mostly disappointed.

    We were sat outside on the patio in October, which was closed in. It was darker and less intimate feeling. The food was great, and the service started out slow but got better. I loved the birthday deal. We will definitely be back to taste some other items on the menu.

    I really wish we lived closer so we could go more often. We have never had a bad meal, food is outstanding! We had a mixure of waitstaff, some great, some so-so. We always tell our friends to try and have even bought gift cards as gifts so that everyone can experience this incredible food. We have taken kids before and it was fine but personally I like it better as date night. My husband proposed to me there and this will always be our favorite place

  • What happened?

    Dined on 10/7/2014
    We made a 7:00 reservation for a Tuesday evening. When we got there we were told there would be a 20 minutes wait even though we had a rervation. Several people came in after us and we're seated. When I approached the hostess, she kept saying our table was almost ready. Really? At 7:50 we were seated and the dining room had many U filled tables. Now I love Rosie's and go there often so maybe this was just an off night or maybe the hostess was new (she was very young that's for sure) but each time we go service suffers alittle more. Usually the waitress brings bread and oil to the table. This time we had to ask twice! Drinks were never refilled. The food is always delicious yet it is hard to let their poor service slide.

    I've been to Rosie's a few times now, & generally am happy/impressed across the board. This time, the food and ambiance (we sat on the beautiful patio) were excellent as always, the service was less than stellar from the moment we walked in. We went at a prime weekday lunch time, and waited almost 10 minutes for the hostess to greet us, and our waitress was similarly slow, albeit there were no actual mistakes. She had a few tables that we could see, but not too many, and the place overall was busy but not packed for the time. It took quite awhile for each step (order drinks, order appetizer, order food, & have each course arrive), and it was somewhat frustrating as we weren't in a hurry, but it could have happened much more smoothly.

    We've enjoyed dinner here in the past, but were very disappointed recently. We waited 10 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. Another 15 minutes for drinks. Ten minutes more for silverware. Our waitress kept disappearing and it was 40 minutes after our seating before our order was taken. Bread took repeated requests and another 10 minutes. Not satisfactory.

    This was only our second time at this restaurant and the experiences inside the restaurant and on the patio were excellent! Food and service are great! We look forward to tracking down their Food Truck once or twice this summer! What got us looking for them originally was sampling some of their fine lamb chops at the Glass City Wine Festival back in February! Awesome flavors! We can't go there every week, but for any celebration it is really a super choice! We also live 45 minutes away, but the trip is well worth it! My suggestion, is look up their website and meet their lunch truck any of the three different locations they are at M-F between 11:00-1:30 pm I will be ordering their Lamb Chops and Lobster Mac & Cheese next time! :)

    Rosie's has great Italian food, but their seafood is a special treat. Great presentation, from the "R" swirled olive oil and balsamic vinegar to accompany the bread to the main courses. The patio is great in late spring, summer, and early fall.

    Rosie's was a pizza staple in our family back in the 80s. This was my first trip to the McCord restaurant. My first impression was that the restaurant was clean and very pretty. The booths need cushions, they are very hard. The food was good but not great. The salads were a little overdressed. My dinner partners liked the eggplant parm and manicotti. Server was very good

    We chose Rosie's because we had samples at the Glass City Wine Fest and my husband could not stop raving about how delicious the lamb chops were! Our party of 5 was very satisfied with the quality and quantity of the food and the service was terrific! Rosie's has become one of our new favorite places to dine, especially for special occasions!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 6/7/2014
    We have loved Rosie's and always look forward to a good meal (for a slightly higher than average price). However, we were disappointed in the service this past Saturday. After bringing our drinks and the bread and oil (only 1 plate of oil for 4 people on the patio with an umbrella pole separating us) our waitress "disappeared" for nearly 25 minutes. When our food was served it wasn't our waitress bringing it out and it took another 5-10 minutes before she appeared to ask us if everything was okay. Another waitress dropped some glasses from her tray and slammed her tray down in disgust. Her attempt to sweep up the glass was haphazard at best.

    The lobster bisque soup was more water than taste. Big chunks of imitation lobster, then little flakes and finally a shell. The pizza was over cooked, decent size portions but the taste of the food was not there. I was disappointed. I don't believe that I will be going back anytime soon.

    Rosie's is one of our favorites but it failed on our most recent visit. We had a lovely table on the patio and our food was delicious. Unfortunately, because of the terrible service, it diminished our experience. Our waitress disappeared and we weren't able to order until 30 min after we got to our table. She didn't put our order in for another 25 minutes. We finally were eating our dinner 1 hour and 20 min after we arrived. Everyone has a bad night so we won't write Rosie's off our list.

    Words cannot describe how pleased we were with our service and food. Our server not only treated my husband and I well, but treated our children just as well. The chef and our server were both very accommodating to our picky eater. In addition, not only did everything on the menu sound delicious, but everything we ordered WAS delicious. I would definitely recommend the grouper, and I'm not a chocolate cake lover, but the chocolate/peanut butter cake was scrumptious (but far too rich and large for one, and should be shared). Rosie's was serving several large groups the night we were there, but we never felt rushed or crowded. It's truly a wonderful restaurant all-around.

    We came to Rosie's on Tuesday to celebrate my husband's birthday and they didn't disappoint. It all started with a friendly greeting by the the hostess, they seated us immediately and the hostess even remembered to wish my husband happy birthday....of course that made him feel pretty special. The service was very good, as usual, and the food was.......well my husband is still raving about the lamb chops. While he loved the present I bought him, he was especially impressed that I took him to Rosie's. It's his favorite restaurant now.....he calls it his neighborhood "golden nugget tucked in the woods". Thanks for making his birthday celebration so enjoyable.
