Great food loud not romantic like former location
Overall good experience. Waited 20 minutes past reservation time which was irritating since we had plans after dinner. $15 simple mixed drink was overpriced. Food was excellent, tasty and good value.
They were right on time with seating us at our reserved time. The service was good. The food excellent. My only complaint is that seating is tight. Looks likes the owners try to shove as tables as possible. I felt like I could have easily had a conversation with the people at the tables to the left and right of me. If you can put up with this and the volume, eat here. The food is excellent and they give you plenty. I had enough left over for lunch the next day.
Love the food, tried a new special and loved it. Service was a little slow but not a deal breaker
Enjoyed dinner with my granddaughter Katrina!
My wife and I love this restaurant, because the service is quick, and excellent! Within a minute of sitting down, our waiter was there, asking for our drink order, then bringing bread minutes later. Our food was delivered quickly, and the portions are huge! My wife and I can actually make three meals out of our entrees. The meal is delicious, prepared timely, and very economical! I heartily recommend Rosebud!! Great job !!!
Server was attentive and very helpful in describing how dishes were prepared. Food came out well spaced. Food was delicious and lived up to expectations. I had the salmon grilled and served over a bed of basil and spinach and topped with a generous relish if chopped tomatoes marinated in balsamic vinegar. It was very tender and juicy - not dried out. My husband had the sausage and peppers appetizer as his main course and it is a generous portion. Served with their Italian baguette, he was very pleased. The dishes were a generous bowl of homemade pasta with Grandma’s meat sauce and a grilled baby squid dressed with balsamic vinaigrette over a fresh mixed lettuce. Wine selections were good.
Had a get together with friends for lunch on a week day. Great food and services. Can’t be happier! Parking was a little tricky. The parking lot right outside of the restaurant is small but across the street there is a three level free parking garage. Very convenient.
Love this location. Food is delicious, always get the Mamas Meatballs! Calamari was perfect and sausage n peppers yummy! We will be back!
This was our second visit to Rosebud and it definitely did not disappoint. We sat at the bar, ordered appetizers (Sausage & Peppers and Stuffed Mushrooms) - FANTASTIC! Danny and the other bartender were very atttentive despite being extremely busy. We wound up just ordering dinner at the bar (Wedge salad and Spaghetti & Meatballs - the size of baseballs) and topped it off with a cannoli. Perfect meal for my 52nd birthday! We look forward to our next visit in August.
Everything was wonderful food and service wise. Our server was outstanding! However we were seated RIGHT next to the kitchen and service area which was loud and a bit annoying as so many people were in and out. Being our first time, wasn’t the most awesome location for a table.
Both the food and service were excellent. While the pasta is excellent, their Brick Chicken is one of the best items on their menu!
My wife has emailed the corporate office with no reply back. Service was terrible. We were there for Easter Sunday and our waiter spent more time at the hostess desk than waiting on us. 30 mins after we sat just for him to take our order. 4 adults and 2 young kids and we were there over 2 hours. We sat down at 1:10 in the afternoon with lots of open tables. The women's bathroom was a complete disaster. Filth, dirt, and someone had a women's accident all over the toilet. My late wife worked for this company for almost 9 years and it was never like this. I think it's amazing how many things in this world from tv's, wine, stores and restaurants, etc., think that all they need is a reputation to keep business going. Why try if you just keep on getting people in the door. What a shame.
We were there for Easter. Everything was great except fish salad which was served with chunks of ice we guess came from storing on ice. Manager offered to bring something else instead. We declined so he brought over some yummy cannolis. Just a one off because of busy day probably. We would definitely go back.
Easter dinner. Great service. Great food.
Food is good, however, they charged us $15 for bringing our own birthday cake for my granddaughter. She has extreme allergies and we had to bring a birthday cake that we knew was safe. They proceeded to charge us $15 additional on our bill. For this reason we will not be back.
Great food and great service made for a wonderful dinner before a concert at Wentz Hall.
We always love the food but we were disappointed with where we sat! I made the reservations a couple weeks prior for our daughters birthday and we were put in the back room in a corner. Would have definitely wanted to be in the main part of the restaurant! Also, I called earlier and asked for a certain bottle of wine to be on the table in celebration of our daughters birthday and had to ask for it once we arrived.
celebrated a wedding anniversary and had a great waitress
Enjoyed Rosebud for an early lunch in the heart of downtown Naperville . Celebrated my wife’s birthday with both my kids one of which goes to college at north central ! It t was perfect great service great food and always love the rosebud family
Always excellent. The eggplant salad is outstanding, even if you don’t like eggplant.
Ziti is fabulous also!
Prices have gone up but still a nice place to eat
My husband and I had not eaten out for a while - and chose Rosebud's because we were in the mood for Italian food. We could have sat in the dining room - but chose to sit at the bar since there were seats available and it seemed cozier. We had a sausage appetizer that was on special and it was wonderful. Because it was so filling, we split the 8-finger cavetelli and the portion size was even large for the two of us. We were stuffed after splitting half of it - and didn't have any room left for dessert.
The bartender could not have been better - he was quick to fill both our water and wine. I wasn't sure what kind of red wine to order - and he let me taste a couple in order to select the one that I liked best. We ordered a bottle and he was on-hand whenever either of our glasses looked low. The atmosphere was wonderful for our "date night". We forgot how much we enjoyed Rosebuds and will definitely return soon!
The wait staff was very attentive and the portions are very large.
Food and service were fine. The party was 3 couples over 50. Very difficult to hold conversation
Quick service, amazing food! Thumbs up
Delicious food! We were impressed with our visit and enjoyed it more than our regular favorite! Good job Rosebud!
Had not been here for a couple of years. Can't wait to go back now! Mare the server was exceptional. Manager was great and very friendly. Food was huge portions, especially the Chicakn Par! My gosh, one of the very best Chicken Parms in Chicago and the dinner portion could feed 3! Table bread is warm and really good especially with the olive oil, parm cheese and red pepper flakes that we mixed on one of the plates. Tiramisu was incredible.
Had a wonderful meal at Rosebud’s on a quiet Monday night. Meal was made even more pleasant by our wait-staff. Joey, our waiter, was delightful, anxious to help in any way. Would ask for him again.
We go there a lot. This is the second time in a row that my spaghetti was watery. That’s so wrong. Both times we went were on Sunday’s. Not sure if they have a different Chef or they have lower their standards.
Our service was extremely poor. We have been coming to this restaurant for years and this past experience was terrible. We were placed in the back of the restaurant with our 4 kids, which was fine, but the server paid us zero attention. When he first came to the table we asked if we could place the kids' orders immediately and then take an extra minute to decide what the adults wanted. Long story short, the kids' food came and was eaten before the waiter ever came back to even ask what my husband and I wanted to drink. The kids were ready to leave and my husband and I hadn't even had anything at all. We left the restaurant very frustrated.
Excellent Italian dishes. The biggest platter of Veal Parmesian that I've ever had!
Delicious. The server was wonderful & attentive. Both managers were made sure our dinner
was perfect. One of the managers, Brian was incredible!! He's a good man!!
Went with my stepdad for my birthday. Service and food were fantastic as always. Miss Lisa Zullo as manager!! She rocks!!
Great atmosphere and service. Food was good but was disappointed in the prices. We ordered baked clams and at $12.50 per half a dozen you would at least expect to taste the meat portion of the clam. but not the case. Disappointed because that’s why we went there.
I took my girlfriend here for a nice late Valentine's dinner. She absolutely loved it and said the spaghetti was fantastic! Is was definitely nice to go somewhere different for once. Nice change of scenery!
This is the perfect restaurant for a special occasion, business meeting, or a simple family dinner. With good to please all palettes, Rosebud is the perfect place to eat.
Great food , great service , will be dinning there again soon
A bit noisy, but the food and service made up for that. Our fish dishes were great!
Our cheese cake was Devine!
