This is my fourth experience dining at Rosalie's and it was terrific. First time was end of COVID19 and on the porch. Second time was in the booth area. Third time was back on the porch for lunch and last night in the back room. Each area has a different vibe and I like them all. Almost feels like four different restaurants!

Our pasta was delicious as was a pizza and a tasty local cheese plate. The drinks are festive and yummy. Our waitress was lovely, prompt and professional.

We'll be back! MJ Hurley Brant

Service was very very slow . Our reservation was 6:30 and it was almost 8 and we had only an appetizer and had waited at least 30 minutes for our drinks.
My mezzaluna entree was small one bite ravioli and $23.
I found the food good but tiny portions, over priced and long waits for food and drinks.
It is a gorgeous hotel and old but not the greatest for dining.

Hi we love this place. but we need to share feedback
the service was not very attentive, our water glasses stayed empty most of the time.
the appetizers namely the cheeseboard could use more crackers or bread. the cheeses were delicious.
the branzino was wonderful but it needs to have a side, like a potato or such? those who ate fish were left picking off ohters plates b/c they did not get enough.
the desserts came out without our order of coffee.
BUT the food is delicious. Service was not quite what it should be for a venue of this caliber.

Honestly, the experience was disappointing. Not bad, but not as good as expected. Perhaps it was because it was Mother's Day (traditionally one of the top dining out days on the calendar, ) but I personally had a "flat" feeling overall and there was "not enough bang for the buck." I would hesitate to recommend it, and am ambivalent about whether I would make a return visit.

Went here for dinner on Mother’s Day. Great atmosphere & our server was very sweet. Food took a bit to came out but I understand it was a holiday with bigger parties. The food is always delicious.

Came in for Mother's Day brunch with just my wife (pregnant) and I. Beautiful place and very comfortable. Food was very good. Ordered the Roasted Beets, Biscuit, Spaghetti, & Americano. Beet Salad was very tasty and light. Was expecting the biscuit to be warm but it was room temperature. Still very good. The Americano is a classic breakfast that was very good. Eggs were some of the best I have had and the potatoes were cooked very well. Bacon was a bit soggy but still tasty. The Spaghetti tasted like Pho which was not what we were expecting. We love Pho but not what we expected for an Italian restaurant. Still good but if you do not like Pho, don't order it.

Waiting service could be better as it seemed like they were not very pleasant and we felt like they were rushing us out of there even though there were plenty of open tables for a Mother's Day.

Overall, a great place. I would come back for sure and try out the other items on the menu.

We are so happy to have Rosalie nearby in town! It is a beautiful setting and we love the patio seating. The service is very attentive and the atmosphere relaxing and casual. The food is delicious and a welcome new change to the neighborhood. We will keep going back!

Ambiance and service are lovely. Food at brunch was quite mediocre. They shouldn’t advertise Sunday brunch unless they have more brunch items on the menu and don’t eat the bacon. Close to shoe leather consistency.

We love Rosalie and I have recommended it many times. Last night was not up to the standards we are used to there. It took a long time to have our drink order taken. When it was finally taken, we asked to have the marinated olives and nuts with our cocktail (which we have done in the past). We were told no (!) that we had to order everything at once and don’t worry the chef will time how it all comes out. Fine. Took forever to get our cocktails. No nuts and olives. Eventually the nuts and olives arrived at the same time as the meatballs we had ordered. Now we have to eat the meatballs before they get cold - didn’t really get to enjoy the nuts and olives with our drink as we wanted and have in the past. The meatballs were very flavorful and were accompanied by delicious sauce and ricotta but were too dense and hard and the grilled bread that came with it tasted only of char. After that, the pizza we ordered was fabulous, as it always is, but then the veal we ordered (also very yummy) arrived to the table waaay after that. Their unique menu/ordering set up just didn’t work last night. We will be back because we understand everyone has a bad night. We might have to adjust how we order and our expectations however.

I had Osso Buca. Only about 3 oz of meat. Never had so little meat for this dish. The margarita pizza was salty. My wife’s salmon was very good

The service was excellent from the staff greeting us to our server! The food was nice, but truthfully not memorable. We had a meatball appetizer which was a bit cold and not as flavorful as I would have expected. My husband and I both had pasta dishes which were good, but not memorable. The ambiance is lovely.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here the other night and were very pleasantly surprised! The food was amazing and the service was great - our waiter was knowledgeable, personable, and attentive. I believe their menu options are updated frequently based upon the season, chef's tastes, etc., which I really like. I would highly recommend!

Love the location, the ambiance, and the patio dining is wonderful. We have had several meals here and every time the service was average at best. We asked several times for various items such as oil for bread, cracked pepper for salad and she never came back with them. When we asked she kept saying oh I forgot. Wrong food was brought to table several times meant for other tables and when our food did come they had no idea who ordered what. These are fundamental easy things to elevate service at a restaurant. I will say some of the food was very nice like the burrata salad but my Bronzino was dry and a bit over cooked. I think Rosalie has great potential but has some work to do.

Another visit to Rosalie-
They have truly improved.
Food was well prepared,
Service was great ( and they were understaffed as everyone is)
Server was pleasant and accommodating.
Veal chop was prepared nicely (Its breaded, however I'm not sure the menu indicated this)
Sea bass excellent.
Broccoli and carrot sides were well prepared and quite tasty.
Overall a great experienc
