My son & I were alone for Thanksgiving, so we thought we would give Rosebud a try since they were open. I must confess, we skipped the turkey entree and ate fried calamari, veal Calabrese & homemade square noodles. Julian M. Was our server and he was delightful, even though it was 5 pm and he had been serving a full restaurant all day. Rosebud in Naperville never disappoints!

This was our first visit and after reading all the great reviews, I thought that we would enjoy this restaurant. I had the baked cavatelli. It was mushy and soupy with sauce and mozzarella. My son had the white clam sauce with pasta. It was watery . My husband got pork chops. He ate one and kept getting a burnt flavor. He flipped the other one and saw that it too was burnt. The manger was called and he agreed that they were burnt , and removed it from our bill. He did offer to replace the dish, but everyone was done eating by then.
As far as atmosphere, there was none. In fact it seemed eerie. I’m guessing that we just went at a bad time, but no one in our party wants to return.

Food was pretty good. The place was loud & requested a table from the kitchen wall to the manager. He wasn't very friendly & lied about the availability of table open. Won't give them my business any more.

Our server was outstanding. Food was good, but I thought on par with a large chain like Maggiano's. Dinner for four was well over $400 with tip, so not a great value.

Veal francese excellent. Waiter very accommodating and bartender made good drinks. Noise level is only drawback. No reason to have piped in music to add to the cacophony

I HAD BAD EXPERIENCE WITH MY MAIN DISH AT LUNCH 0N 11/13/2021. HAD ORDERED THE PASTA SPECIAL WITH SHRIMP AND CLAMS. THE PASTA WAS SANDY AND LATER I NOTED ONE HALF CLAM SHEL FILLED WITH MUD. THIS WAS DISGUSTING TO SEE. I FAILED TO COMPLAIN AT THE TIME OF DINNER AND ONLY NOTED THE MUD FILLED SHELL IN THE LEFT OVER THAT I TOOK HOME.

This was our first time at a Rosebud and we will definitely come back. The service was fantastic and the food was delightful. The Fusilli Carbonara was outstanding! Great location in downtown Naperville for a stroll after dinner. Highly recommend!

Everything was great. The only exceptions were that it’s a noisy restaurant for conversations and when we requested extra marinara sauce they charged for it. Not the it was a big expense, but when you’re spending $125 for two people it seemed like they were being cheap. We’ve been to many other restaurants and none of them have done this in the past.

The food was horrible. For a 36 dollar plate of steak medallions - the steak tasted like skirt steak (was just as thin). The cheese on top was horrible. No sides either. You would be better off at an Olive Garden- at least you get salad and breadsticks.

Omg, seriously? Mom & I are regulars. 2 pasta dishes took 1:15 minutes. No communication from server, pasta arrived WITHOUT sauce… managers’ attire was far from professional and only excuse was “people make mistakes”… offered another dish but why would I do that when it took forever to get a menu selected item? No thanks, I went corporate. Retrain your staff and get rid of that manager. He isn’t helping your venue at all!!!

The food was fantastic and plentiful, but the service was sadly lacking. And I would have even chalked that up largely to the difficulty in hiring these days that’s leaving so many places lacking staff, but I had to ask 3 times just for oil to arrive at our table, while the bread cooled while waiting, and I had to ask twice for a simple Diet Coke. The bar must have been backed up, too, because all of the alcohol was slow to arrive.

All that said, we still had a good time as we were celebrating a birthday, and I will say the waiter — who left a lot to be desired otherwise — even chimed in and sang Happy Birthday with us.

And I can’t emphasize enough that everyone loved their food and everyone was also shocked by the portions. They just serve a lot of food at Rosebud!!

Our group of six people really enjoyed our evening at Rosebuds. Food and service was excellent. Food prices were a little higher than the last time I was at Rosebuds in Chicago. But everything is going up these days.

Prices are outrageous. Prices have gone up and up. Ordered Chicken Parm and could barely cut it with a fork - it was so dry. Salad was excellent - way over priced though. Service was good. Their food has suffered.

Everyone's very friendly. You get a lot of food for your money plenty of leftovers to take home.
I had dropped my soda glass into my dinner plate of veal marsala and they gladly made me up a new marsala and mushroom sauce very promptly and no extra cost.
