Upon arriving our table was ready and we were seated immediately. Unfortunately, Rosebud Lemont is
much too noisy. At our round table of 6 we could not hear one another. As is always the case, when you can’t hear the conversation across the table, you speak to the person right next to you. Three convos going at once defeating the whole purpose of our monthly get togethers.
Our food was very good however when the busboy and waitress took our leftovers to be boxed up four of us got one another’s meal. Either take one or two at a time or box it table side to avoid this confusion.
We were all looking forward to Rosebud opening but disappointed. Hopefully these issues will be corrected.

Only complaint was the valet told me IF I didn’t want to valet my car, I could go across the street. AND I would probably be towed?..

Only 10 days in so i expect service to improve. Will be back for sure, did a great job with reno. Chopped salad needs a more flavorful dressing and eggplant parm needs a light sauce

Had reservations at 7:00, when I arrived had to wait then hostess said the only available seating was at a high top table. Was told if I didn't take high top table she could not tell me how long the wait was. After 5 minutes she said there was a table across from the bar area available. I regretted taking the table since it was close to the bar, kitchen and bathroom route that I got bumped into the entire time we were dining. Food was good, but the various entrees were hot on top but cool in the middle.

Get past the parking confusion. Get past the HIGH NOISE level. The Staff Is awesome—friendly helpful considerate. (I think our waiter was newish but everyone was welcoming!) And the food is like Rosebud always has been—outstanding! Fried calamari fettuccine Alfredo veal Marsala pork chop calabrese chicken parmigiana...and a lovely wine list. It was a great way to celebrate our anniversary! Welcome to the neighborhood!!! So glad you’re nearby again!

We were a table of 6 celebrating 2 birthdays and we like to drink and eat. The room was so loud we couldn’t talk over everyone. Our waitress messed up our drinks a few times and was very slow to come to the table. We were there over 2 hours! There were other tables a 10or more people that seemed take priority over us. Loved the food but hated the service, won’t go back very soon.

Great food and quick service! Our whole table enjoyed their food. The portions were very giving! The restaurant was clean as were the bathrooms on a busy Friday night. The only challenge is the parking situation which you have to valet park-but it is free of charge.

Long awaited and disappointing.Average food depending on what you order. Emphasis on the menu ,pasta and salad. Biggest drawback,the noise level. Yes, most vibrant classy restaurants are loud but I have never had a problem conversing with my server due to the noise level It was literally not possible to hold a conversation with my companion without shouting and this was in the bar area where it was supposed to be not as loud. Very crowded with people standing butted against our table conversing with other diners Perhaps we will give it another try when open air seating opens up.

There were 6 of us and we had chicken parmesian,ravioli,baked ziti,and chicken alfredo. Everything was delicious. And of course tiramisu for dessert! Definitely we will go back. So much closer than Naperville,but just as good.

Ordered champagne and the waitress poured it in the wine glass. Chopped salad was horrible, not the same as in other Rosebud in Naperville. We will give another chance just because we would like at least one nice restaurant in Lemont to succeed.

Great food just like the original on Taylor street. I found that my old favorite type of cavatelli was not on the menu, but our server was able to ask the chef to prepare it "Cavatelli a la Rosebud" it made me so happy and made our birthday celebration even happier. The cannolli with a candle was the icing in the cake! Can't wait to come back there

Having Mandatory Valet in the suburbs is a huge turnoff. Our Special of the day White fish was tremendously overcooked and lacked any flavor or uniqueness.

We were disappointed! We have been anxiously awaiting the opening of Rosebud and were excited to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary there. Unfortunately, the food was only fair, the restaurant is loud and the kitchen smoke overwhelms the dining area. On a positive note, the service was very friendly and attentive.

Was looking forward to the new Rosebud. Too loud, too many people who bring small kids to try to make it the next Olive Garden. Nice try but failed.

The place was full with several large parties. Our sever, Giana, was fantastic. She provided outstanding service and was very attentive. She made sure that our order was delivered on time and that we had all we needed. The food was really good. We really enjoyed our visit and Giana made it possible.

We made a reservation at Rosebud Lemont for 10 people on their first Sunday evening which they were officially open for business. Three hours before our reservation time I called them to ask if they could accommodate our larger party. The manager agreed y to let us expand even tho they were very busy.
Everyone in our group was very impressed by not only the great delicious food that Rosebud is famous for, but the service and timing of the service was fabuloso!
We had a great dining experience!!!!

Everything about Rosebud, from the minute you walk in, to the last bite of food you put in your mouth, is divine! You are greeted with a smile and a "thank you for coming", the hosts, the servers, everyone was smiling. Such a great atmosphere, and the food is plentiful and delicious! Only complaint is it's loud, but hey... you're in an Italian restaurant! haha!

This is a 5 star restaurant in my opinion. For only being open 5 days, the staff was clearly trained and they performed well for our table.

The food was just outstanding with a professional presentation.

Pricing did seem inline with most upscale restaurants.

If i had to recommend one item to review, the baked clams. Little 6 neck clams were used @12.95 I believe, i wish they would use the larger ones.

Overall, a Great experience.
