Vino Rosina reviews from OpenTable diners

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIP
    Dined on 5/25/2013
    We made our reservation (6 adults and 2 kids) about 5 minutes before we walked in the door. The staff quickly prepared a table for us and we were seated within minutes. The service was outstanding, the food delectable and the drinks were unique and tasty. The folks at Vino really went out of their way to welcome us and make us feel comfortable. It was evident people do not usually walk into Vino with a 3yr old and an infant but the staff was superb and everyone enjoyed dinner immensely. Jim, the owner, introduced himself to us at the end of our meal. This is a top-notch dining establishment and I will make it a point to eat at Vino next time I am in Baltimore.

    Dined on 4/29/2013
    Went on a Monday night date with my boyfriend. The food was delicious, we had the chicken thigh (their take on chicken Cabonara) and the Rockfish. As an appetizer, we had the Scallops served on a bed of grits. All-in-all the food was substantial and like food for the soul. My only complaint was that the wine prices were a little steep. On Mondays the wine is half off, we still ended up paying over $50 for a bottle. It was worth it. I understand on Tuesdays they have a 3-course meal for $20, may try that next time. Their red hot sundae w/ homemade bourbon ice cream, hot fudge and red velvet cake crumbles was awesome!!! I bet the weekends are great here...nice staff, good food and a relaxed environment.

    My friend and I arrived after a play at Centerstage. We love visiting restaurants that offer small plates and were looking forward to enjoying a meal at Vino Rosina. Upon our arrival at around 10:15pm, I noticed that there weren't many customers. I needn't have worried thereafter for the food and service turned out to exceed my expectations. Our waitress was very attentive and accommodating considering we had arrived minutes before the kitchen closed, a problem the waitress apologized for since the restaurant did offer reservations for 10:15pm. I would definitely recommend Vino Rosina for its delicious dishes and expansive cocktail and wine selection.

    We were the only diners on a wednesday night. Bar was busy ,but dining area empty,so very quiet. Server was very attentive and helpful. We shared a couple of appetizers. Both the chicken livers and pastrami salmon were excellent, but if you like livers well done , make sure to request as our's were served quite rare. A flatbread with ham and artichoke was outstanding, crisp and very flavorful. A board of cheese , sausage slices and mushroom pate was the weakest part of our meal . The pickled vegetables that came with it were really tasty, but the mushroom pate had little taste and a texture that suggested a handful of mushrooms dumped in a food processor. We did not have room for dessert. By the way, wine list is good and reasonable.

    Dined on 4/13/2013
    After an initial review of the menu, I was not particularly happy. The menu is relatively small and had very little that actually appealed to me. After making some tough choices, though, we were incredibly impressed with the taste and quality of the dishes. Picky diners will find this place challenging, but you cannot argue with the great tastes. Loved the chick pea "fries" and the "chicken under a brick." Desserts were marvelous. Wait staff seemed rather ecclectic, but they were very attentive and friendly. We will likely return, though might just sit at the bar for a cocktail and appetiezer.

    Service was outstanding, she explained all of the menu items and how they were prepared very well. Attentive without being overly so. The menu is unusual and our dinning companions were more traditional in tastes than this restaurant, my wife and I are fine with that, our companions had a hard time finding something on the menu that they wanted, and did not really enjoy what they picked finally. I suggest that the olive appetizer should have more than two types of olives, and that the cheese plate is a little skimpy. The wine list is fantastic, and prices are very reasonable.

    The menu is limited, but the kitchen puts the focus on flavor, not volume. From the wine to the cheeses, soup to flatbread, the food tasted wonderful. And the dessert, warm blondie with ice cream, may have topped it all. The service was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Great place for a special night out.

    After reading lovely reviews, our experience was sub-par. Most menu items just weren't executed well. This was Saturday night when restaurant to be at its finest. my house-special cocktail with jalapeño to give it a kickbarrived filled with floating peppers: Undrinkable. Our waitress said she knew the bartender had made it wrong. An interesting small plate of citrus olives tasted were tasteless. One of the evening's specials never arrived. The clincher came when the waitresses advised someone in the group she couldn't make just one cup of coffee since it was a French press for three, so we all switched our dessert beverage (cappacino, tea). What restaurant would tell a customer that?

    When we arrived, we looked at the menu and thought it was limited, especially since one person in our party must be dairy-free. Our waitress helped with choices and let us know that the chef was willing to adjust many of the dishes by serving the dairy portion on the side. We tried and shared a great variety of the offerings and were never disappointed. Everything was absolutely delicious! We also thought that the restaurant was a very comfortable place to socialize. We plan to return and will recommend Vino Rosina wholeheartedly.

    I have eaten here several times and usually have enjoyed it. However, I came in with a group of five and it was not very busy on Saturday but the service was very slow and unattentive. I did not get a spoon for my soup and someone from the group had to grab one from the waitress stand where two of the wait staff were talking. Our waitress never asked us how our meals tasted or if we needed anything until we finished eating. The drinks and food both took an unusually long time to come out. Even with five people it should not have taken over 2 hours to have a meal. Overall I was pretty disappointed.

    I took my friend here for her birthday. We both wanted to go somewhere we had never been before and away from the typical chain restaurants. We dined there on a Monday evening, the restaurant had a nice casual and sleek ambiance (if that makes sense). Our server was wonderful and very helpful when it came to choosing wine, main entre, dessert. The food was delicious but I was a little peeved that they ran out of 2 of the main dishes on a limited menu. The highlight of the evening was the 3 different ice creams sent us compliments of the chef. The ice cream flavored with wine was really good as well as the chocolate with cayenne pepper. The prices were decent as well. A party of 4 we spent about $150 on flatbread, drinks, entrees, dessert.

    Food was very good overall. Menu choices a bit limited but sometimes that's a good thing. Extremely well designed small space. Great wine list with reasonable prices (we had a Cimicky Shiraz that was great). It seems that the food is intentionally simply prepared in order to highlight, rather than overwhelm, the wine/food pairings. I like that approach. I'll definitely go back.

    This was my only really disappointing Restaruant Week experience. I have never written a poor review before, but I am compelled to do so now. The salad was insanely small - it was an arugula salad with a whopping 9 pieces of arugula. We actually counted because it was so silly looking. The fish I ordered was such a small portion (two 3"x1.5" pieces) and the mushrooms accompanying it were water logged and had no flavor. We had 3 different staff come to ask us how the meal was, so it was obvious they knew there were problems. When we said it was "okay" the manager said "that's not what we want to hear!!" Our waitress seemed agitated and rushed the whole meal on top of this. I was embarrassed to have suggested it to my friend for din
