It was a great time. We celebrated my birthday! Our waitress was amazing and super personable which added an extra special part to my day. The only thing that I was surprised by was when I made the reservation, I said we were celebrating a birthday, and there was no form of celebration. Of course, I didn’t go there to have them do anything special, but I was a little surprised by it. I would totally come back for dinner and drinks! I completely recommend it.

Really poor experience. Went here to celebrate a special birthday. The entire meal was rushed and they never mentioned the birthday after I made sure to put the information in the reservation. They didn’t even ask if we wanted dessert, just hurried us with our check. Really bad service, probably fine for a quick meal, but not anything special. We mentioned it to the manager in the way out and didn’t even get an apology.

Stuffed pepper appetizers very good! My halibut was good flavor, but slightly overcooked, a little on the dry side.

We took the grandkids with us and they ate so much food and barely had any leftovers. They loved the carrot cake for dessert.

The food was amazing. Ordered the beef tri tip steak. It was excellent. The asparagus was crisp and delicious and the mashed potatoes were great. The service was quick and friendly.

The one restaurant that's actually owned by Ilani and they don't utilize the 10% off for being a ascend member and they refuse to do yet all the other restaurants do.
Our bill was $200 it would have been useful The food was decent but the service sucks . ..

The food and beverage were excellent! We enjoyed a delicious bottle of wine from Doubleback Winery! Chef Christopher Pauls visited with us and shared his creativity with the Margherita pizza! It was wonderful! Gabby provided outstanding service. She is polite, professional, and knowledgeable about the menu! Thank you Rose & Thorn for a relaxing evening.

We have eaten here before and had a great dinner experience. This time our calamari was good but cold . Your staff did comp it. When I made reservations you had ask if it was a special occasion. I put it was our anniversary. Why do you ask if you don’t have your staff do anything or say anything. Our reservation where for 7 snd we didn’t get out till 9. It just was a disappointing dinner experience.

From greeting us, seating, to coffee and dessert it was an incredible dining experience. The smallest thing that would have made it perfect was if we hadn’t had to ask a young server who brought a salad to share to provide a serving implement. But overall service was excellent and the meal was ideal. Thank you for a most enjoyable dining experience.

Overall, it was a very pleasant and enjoyable experience. The table we got was excellent and our server was helpful, friendly and did a great job. The only part of the experience for me was my dish selection. I asked the server if the cream sauce was thick or thin on the carbonara and she said it was kind of thick, which is bad for me as I have difficulty with rich foods, but I ordered anyway. It was way too creamy for my personal taste and I was only able to eat about half of it. The bacon they used was fantastic, however. My other tiny dissatisfaction was the portion size on the dessert. We got the carrot cake, which was easily the best carrot cake we have ever had, ever. But I think it should have been about 10-15% bigger. Overall, we look forward to returning as soon as our schedule allows.

Slow service (seemed they were short handed), items on menu not available, steaks cooked perfectly, side dishes and desserts delicious, parts of order did not come out with food. If you're not in a hurry (we were not) a nice experience.

Very satisfied with the food and drink choices! Tri-tip with mashed potatoes and asparagus was delicious! Lydia the waitress was fantastic. Only disappointing thing was the seating- it felt cafeteria like. Lacks ambiance, but staff and food are great!

We wanted to go to Michael Jordan’s steakhouse for some good steaks but they were closed, so we settled on Rose&Thorn. So glad we did!! The tri tip steak was grilled to perfection and perfectly done (medium well) and so juicy and tender, and that Demi-glaze... it was really hard to not pick up that plate and lick it right off of it!! My husband got the New York strip and he loved it. We shared the meat and cheese plate and the creme brûlée, both also delicious choices. Overall, I would say that I think when I want steak at Ilani, I’m gonna save $75 and go to Rose & Thorn.

Food was yummy but I will say the halibut is very small for that price. Also ordered the vegetable risotto which says on the menu comes with pancetta but it's actually bacon. I would eat here again, they just need to refine the menu.

Gabby is a fantastic server and she looked absolutely beautiful. Food was very good overall. Sweet n sour would be good on the salmon instead with the parmesan crust on the brussels sprouts. Torta cake was too sugary/chocolatey. Slice up the mushrooms more on the wild mushroom pizza.
