This is one of our old favorites when we used to live in the NW suburbs. My only complaint was that I couldn’t finish; it was so good! I chose the fabulous Minestrone Soup, and Shrimp with Broccoli over Linguine ; All Scrumptious! And, I paired all made my husband’s birthday celebration most memorable! Can’t wait to return on our next visit!

Amazing evening!
Made reservations for a Friday night for early dinner in the bar area. Fantastic experiance from
Start to finish. From the moment we were greeted by the friendly hosts, all the way thru drinks, appetizers, main course and desert, all was fantastic! I am not sure if I answered the noise graph properly above but it was not noisy when we were there for a 6:00 pm meal.
I would send my friends and family the Rose Bud anytime!
Bravo!

I made reservations for my parents for their anniversary and I told Rosebud as such. They kindly gave my parents a free dessert and wished them a happy anniversary on my behalf of my siblings and myself who could not be there with them! It was very thoughtful and I really appreciated the extra hospitality!

My spouse and I were very pleased with our table, our meal, our waiter, and the attention we received during our visit. For my own part, the ravioli was absolutely fantastic; best I've ever had, even in Italy. My wife enjoyed a huge serving of tortellini. Then there was dessert. . . . oh my. Very enjoyable!

I wasn’t expecting much but was totally amazed! The food was excellent and they serve very large portions. I asked for a special request to be made that wasn’t on the menu and they were more than happy to. The flavors were phenomenal and we were absolutely stuffed when we left. My and my husband ordered two appetizers, two entrees and two desserts and honestly we could have shared one of each, even entree! But happily took home half our food for an excellent next day lunch. The service was also great. Couldn’t ask for more.

This place is awesome. Food is phenomenal. Even the worst item we had, was great. The service here should be the gold-standard for any dining establishment. The entire staff is polite and responsive. They clear plates almost without you noticing, ask if they can and are unobtrusive when then do. My glass of water never reached a half-filled state, unless I had it in my mouth.

We celebrated 2 birthdays and had multiple appetizers, entrees, and desserts and enjoyed the entire experience. If you haven’t been, this is the place to enjoy Italian dining.

They have crammed so many tables in to such a tiny space, it's impossible to hear, let alone even move at your table. Really disappointed. The waiter even commented on it to us. It's literally impossible to move once you are in your chair. The tables are packed in so tightly, it's ridiculous. I don't think I will go back.

The food was very good. The server was attentive, but you can't hear what your tablemates are saying. Really a shame.

I’ve eaten here before. This time chopped salad had no flavor whatsoever and pasta was over cooked and over salted. Noise level was horrible and could not hear the waiter or my companions. Even my 15 yo complained about the noise. Manager was nice about it but won’t be returning given there are too many great places to eat in Chicago.

My wife and I choose to go to Rosebud on Rush for a date night after we saw the good reviews. The food my wife & I ordered (Pappardelle Pasta & New York Strip) was outstanding and worth the high rating! The atmosphere did not live up to the food. The restaurant packed people into every possible space so it was tight and the noise level was loud. Not really a romantic date night setting, more of a casual Saturday night out with friends setting. The service was also slow but I believe that was contributed by the large number of guest seated in the restaurant.

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants. It was a really busy night and they put us in a small spot close to the kitchen upstairs. it was a little tight, we had to actually move the table to get out. There was a bug crawling on the wall across from us and another patron got up and killed it with his napkin for a lady that was sitting next to the wall. The food was good and the service was good. Just not exceptional like I had remembered it. I think I will try another place next time I am back in town.
