We had a wonderful time. Our server's name is David and he did a great job in making sure we were being treated well. We will definitely go back many times. We were celebrating our 60th wedding anniversary.

Our food was good, especially the pizza for an appetizer. A person in our group got the veal scalipini? I believe it’s called, she wasn’t impressed but everything else was delish. We did forget to mention one person was celebrating a birthday, not sure if you do anything for that. Service was great.

Are waiter was very rude and was not helpful at all. The food was ok, it was as good as the last 6 times we’ve been there. Was kind of disappointed. But I will try it once more, but will request to never have that waiter again.

It was our first time. The whole experience was wonderful. Given the prices of the food though, I was expecting a little more posh. tablecloths on the tables, classical music (not sports and news on televisions in the dinning room). Our waiter was very attentive and really made up for the items I felt were missing.

In fortunately 3 of our meals were not that good I had a New York steak and my friend had a fillet Mignon. We asked for medium rare mine was brown in the middle and my friend fillet was just a little pink. My wife had the halibut that was dry and salty. Not worth the money if the cook cannot prepare your meal correctly. Will try Michael Jordan’s steakhouse next time

We asked for a table by windows. Told could not sit there at that time. Less then 5 minutes later they took a table of 3 guests out by the windows.
We were sat by door way between 1st & 2nd room. Lots of traffic.
My husband was told special was rib eye - his favorite -then told they were out -wrong day for that special.
We wanted a special dinner celebration for my sister that had finished her last chemo treatment. We had enjoyed our last visit to Rose & Thorn but this one was a big disappointment.

5th time there and Rose and Thorn is always consistently good. This time I ordered Halibut with mashed potatoes and grilled cauliflower. Fish was perfectly cooked and the sides were excellent as always. They kept my water and ginger ale glass filled and the staff was always on top of any requests we asked for. My mom enjoyed her food as well along with the 80s and 90s music videos keeping us entertained.

Server was a great guy; genuinely invested in making sure we were happy with our food, drinks, and comfort.

Food: fantastic, and really good portion sizes. The clams in white wine and butter was delicious, and a very generous serving (it's listed as an entree, but honestly was a great appetizer for 4 people to share). My dad had the pizza with salami and other meats, and said it was the best pizza he's ever had.

Ambience was fairly good. If you're not into 80's or 90's music videos, you might want to request sitting in the front of the restaurant, because that's all that was playing on the TVs in the back/main dining room. Not noisy, but if that's not your taste in music, it will probably annoy you (my group didn't mind, so we were good).

This was our first visit, but we will definitely be back again in the future!

We always enjoy eating there. We prefer to sit in the bar area since the ambience is better but the open seating area is ok. It was a little cold last time we were there since we were next to a vinyl window. Service was great as usual and the food was very good.

Great time! Great food! The server wanted us to put on our masks when he came to the table, even when he was six feet away taking our order. I absolutely understand, but it was a bit of a challenge and he kept leaving as we would all grab our masks to put those on before we asked for water, ketchup, etc. I know we are all getting use to a new normal, but my advice would be...if you want people to mask up before asking for something you have to wait. Maybe R&T could use cloth napkins and we could just hold those over our mouths. Just a thought.

I enjoy rose and thorn but the service is always on the slower side. Especially last visit. I was seated in the bar area and bartender was the one waited on me. Of course, being a bartender, he had to make drinks and seved to people sitting at the bar.. I will not be seated in the bar area in the future.

I made a reservation to celebrate a birthday. We were seated in what looked like a garage with no decor and fruit flies everywhere. The food was disappointing and had no flavor. I thought i was paying for the experience, but even that sucked. Do not recommend.

The tri tip was extremely chewy. We would have told our server, but we had to ask another server to find him for us, as we didn't see him for over 15 minutes after the food was dropped. The manager comped the steak, thankfully. We have been several times before with great service and great food. This was not one of those evenings.
