Pazzo Ratings and Reviews
We love Rumi, and have been going there for a while now. But things just got even better. Rumi managed to hire our favorite waiter of all time, Michael (we knew him when he worked at Town). Some waiter's and waitresses just stick out amongst the rest, and that's Michael. So we will visit Rumi more now, and definitely ask for Michael's section. He has the ability to be there at the right time, is helpful when needed, but never pushy or in your face.
Our favorites here are the beef skewers on top of the pearl cous cous - but have had everything from the lamb, gnocchi, pasta and steak. Everything has been cooked to perfection and tastes great. I've introduced many new friends to Rumi, who now find it a favorite as well.
Rumi was just perfect for a nice, quite birthday dinner for my husband. The food was just outstanding and service was great. The staff recommended a red wine my husband really enjoyed and also came through on my request for a birthday desert (their bread pudding which was phenomenal and just hit the spot)!!! They also have wine tasting every so often, so thats exciting.
Our family of four adults agrees on Rumi's. We don't agree on much like most families but we all like Rumi's and we come here often. They also have Ed's Red wine. I have never seen it anywhere else and our family has one beer drinker, one cocktail drinker, one red wine drinker and one white wine drinker, but we all like Ed's Red. They have a vegetarian dish of five different vegetarian sides that I really like. Their Tandoori oven makes wonderful flatbread appetizers.
Rumi is a diamond in the rough!! I would recommend Rumi for anyone who really likes to taste their food - food that is not over cooked, over slated and seasoned, pure tasting and in a wide vaiety of choices. They have tapas like sizes so you can taste a few different plates as well as dinner options. All are wonderful.
I highly recommend Rumi for dates, friends meet ups. It's not pretentious or snotty, very well put together and great ambiance.
I was a bit disappointed with our meal the last time we visited this restaurant. I felt bad esp. for my cousin, who was not happy with her dish. I suggested this place as we really enjoyed our first visit. Not sure if we'll be returning to this restaurantas I didn't think the food we had at the time was worth the cost.
went there for lunch with a group, we seem to be the only ones, and yet our lunch took 30 minutes and still was not served at the same time. I did like the food, but they need to do something about the service, food 4 stars service 1 star and ambiance 31/2.
If Rumi were at the other end of Laurel street, it would be packed every night. The food and service are exceptional. I first tried this place because it offered a 1000 point reservation - I went back at least three times in the following two weeks. Despite being a grown-up restaurant, my kids really like it - even the one who is a picky eater.
Venture down south of Brittan to discover this gem. You'll be glad you made the trip.
The best restaurant in San Carlos. The seasonal menu is filled with very fresh offerings - I see the chef at the local farmer's market often. The staff, chef and owner are all friendly and eager to please. Modest but well selected wine list of local and exotic wines. Intimate and upscale ambience, especially nice on a cold autumn day.
The service was appallingly slow. Food was good but there were major gaps between courses when the entire tables had long finished the prior course and was sitting awkwardly. The meal for 5 took well over 2 hours. Obviously, we didn't go there looking for a quick meal but 2.5 hours was way too long.
We've been meaning to go to Rumi since it opened and I wish we had gone sooner because it's the best restaurant we've been to in quite a while. The place is lovely - very nice decor and very clean. The food was spectacular! We had appetizers, salad, main course (Mahi mahi for me - wonderful crust and not overcooked or dry) and dessert (Mocha panna cotta was great) and every one of us loved everything we had picked. The portions were good sized and it was all cooked perfectly. Different flavors and combinations of flavors but it all worked perfectly together. We loved it so much we'll be going back in less than a week for a special birthday party.
First time there, was a great discovery. Interior very nicely done, service very friendly yet not intrusive, atmosphere was nice, quiet, food was excellent. Creative combinations of natural flavors, fresh ingredients and bursting with flavor, each dish was delightful. The 3 course prix fixe menu matched with 3 wine tastings was a great deal. The halibut was cooked to perfection, not overdone, like so many places.
This is a neighborhood gem that has not been discovered.
Lovely restaurant, quite upscale for the location, which is about six blocks away from the main restaurant area on San Carlos. Wine-bar style presentation of wines (half glass, full glass, half carafe, etc.) and better than average food quality and presentation.
