    We had an enjoyable meal. One little glitch. It was happy hour and the cocktails were $9 each. We ordered two Quick and Dirty Martinis. Our waitress told us no up charge for having premium gin instead of vodka. That was incorrect. Our martinis were $15 each.

    Was recommended by friends as a very nice new restaurant. It’s mainly Asian fusion. Sushi looked good if you enjoy that. However I ordered the chicken and it was so overcooked I sent it back, Then waited another 20 mins for new chicken which was nearly as bad as the first one. However the server was extremely helpful and totally agreed with me that it was unacceptable. He took my entree off the bill. However I would have preferred to enjoy my meal.

    My wife and I were here for our anniversary. The restaurant didn’t acknowledge our celebration or present anything. This is fairly standard at nice restaurants so we were surprised. We ordered 4 appetizers and 1 sushi roll, and teo cocktails. Spring rolls- were crunchy and fresh. They were bland without the sauce and the sauce had way too much salt when used. Pork Bao buns-the pork belly was cut to thick and hard to eat. The filling was way too little for the size of the buns. The flavor was ok, nothing special, but the buns had good texture. Yuzu sushi roll- this was pretty dreadful for $20 sushi roll. The rice was just all wrong, the texture was off like it was over cooked and too much seasoning liquid was used. The yuzu sauce overpowered everything on the dish that you couldn’t even taste the jalapeño. The fish was very fresh so that was good. Food summary- overall there is potential here but the food needs some balance. There’s salty dishes with no acid, acidity dishes with no fat, etc. The highlight of the night was the two cocktails and there were just ok. I wouldn’t return for the drinks. Their service was similar to an Applebees experience. Not at all what we were expecting. We intended to order entrees and more drinks but left after the apps fell short and went to another restaurant for dinner. All of that for more than $100 and it’s pretty upsetting to say the least. I hope they can get it figured out, but at these prices I don’t think most people would feel any value with a similar experience that we had.

The Sushi is excellent, as well as the steakes! Really enjoyed the entire experience all 3 visits! This place is going on the regular rotation!

    Our first time here and we were very pleasantly surprised! We opted for sushi and dim sum mostly. Shumai, tempura rock shrimp, crispy rice w/ spicy tuna, yellowtail jalapeño, and the nigiri were all great. Only miss was the crab roll, which was supposed to be king crab, avocado inside, tuna (or salmon) on top. The tuna was great, they’ve got the rice down but the roll was pretty much an avocado roll with a smidgen of crabmeat - like you need a magnifying glass to find the crab and the avocado was the overwhelming flavor. Our server Taylor was great and moved us to a bigger table (because we ordered so much) but it felt short staffed there. We weren’t in a big rush so we didn’t mind waiting 30 minutes for cocktails. But they could definitely use more help. We are very excited to have good sushi in SRQ and look forward to returning soon!

    Food and service was great but disappointed in the fact that they didn’t serve the full dinner menu until 5pm and so had to eat off of a happy hour menu. Was just expecting a dinner experience even if it was early. Maybe that could be noted somewhere on their website or an alert when making reservations, which we had.

    Found this restaurant while walking back to our hotel and made the reservation! Food was outstanding and I am a snob for Asian cuisine. Can’t say enough about this place. We ate outside and was attended to immediately and drinks arrived quickly!! Food was fantastic and every dish was better than the previous! Excellent recommendations from our waiter and had the pleasure of meeting the owner!! If you want a great meal don’t pass this one up!!

    This was our first time to go to Rose & Ivy since the ownership change. The food and service were both fantastic…..Our waitress, Veronika was very knowledgeable and friendly and made great recommendations. We split the Korean pork chop and some extra veggies….the pork chop was perfectly cooked—just done enough—and was very juicy and flavorful. The veggies were also tasty and there was plenty for two of us to share. On the way out, we noticed that the patio had live music and seemed lively. We will definitely go back!

    Second time dining here. Really love this place and the patio is delightful. Not sure what happened because our first visit everything was perfectly timed. Last visit from the time we were seated until our entrees came was 2 hours and 15 mins. Maybe longer. It’s like our party of four got forgotten. We were having such a good time with friends we didn’t really notice at first but then saw other tables that had come in much later than us were being served. Odd. Hoping this is just a once off kinda thing.

    First time here. Not impressed as we've had similar foods elsewhere. Only saving grace was the octopus app which was cooked very well and was delicious. Service was okay. Waiter never asked of we wanted a drink prior to dinner. And there was no tea. How is that possible? Can't boil water?

    Excellent menu for Asian dishes notable the sushi/sashimi selections. The restaurant has a cool vibe to it. Servers aim to please. We enjoyed our Double Tuna Roll that is one huge roll which did not skimp on the seafood. Diners around us were also ordering it so it is a popular dish. The Chilean Seabass is good; however, the amount of miso is slight which combined with a buttery mixture loss the miso flavor a bit. One hiccup is the Salmon Cappaccio appetizer. Salmon is very fresh but the olive oil, truffle oil, and balsamic vinegar is way too much olive oil that the dish is swimming in it. Less is more for this dish but again the salmon is excellent. Overall a very good place to eat.

    We met two other couples there, they had been before and recommended we go there. Glad we did…they had just added a whole menu selection of Chinese delicacies…including Bao Buns and Dim Sum. In addition to the sushi and sashimi there are American favorites like steak and pork chops (which looked delicious!) We’ll definitely be back!!!

    Fish was poor quality and doused in sauce. There also were no basic sushi rolls offered (e.g. tekka roll, maguro etc). Only more complicated rolls. They were also out of almost all the glass pour wines!

    We arrived on time for our reservation in the courtyard, and immediately noticed how loud the music outside was. Our waiter (Luis?) was attentive to orders, just spoke very quietly over the very loud music - the four of us mostly had no idea what he was saying. We enjoyed many of the sushi and nigiri options, and the shrimp risotto. The signature rolls (8 pieces) hover just under $30, which is pricey. We were told that a number of those options will disappear with the transition to Rose & Ivy. It’s a terrific space; we hope that they keep the sushi options, and moderate their prices.
