What a treat this restaurant was! My wife an I received a GC to this restaurant. We decided to take the family for the evening. The restaurant is about 25 minutes from our house. We really didn't know what to expect and were happily surprised. The atmosphere was very energetic with two live musicians playing mandolins. We had great service and the food was amazing! My wife and I shared the chicken kabbobs. The chicken was so delicious, tender and juicy I couldn't believe it. We ordered the hummus to start and it was very delicious. Our daughters had the pitas and thought they were amazing. Try the garlic dip as a side. It also is amazing. My son had the ribeye medallions. It was wonderfully grilled and delicious. We had the baklava with cream and creme brulee for dessert and enjoyed them both. We will definitely be visiting this restaurant again despite the extended drive from our house.

I had the falafel, it was delicious. The lentil soup had a strange "egg drop soup" slimy consistency I didn't care for. I thought the food was a bit pricey

My sister and I were celebrating the Christmas holiday and made reservations at the last minute. It was my sister’s first time dining at Rosine’s and it was perfect. I love the Family feel of the restaurant and we had the lamb and the chicken. It was wonderful along with the sides, and garlic sauce is a must if you love garlic like me. Everyone was so warm and friendly. They also have a great wine list.

Mediterranean places are a dime a dozen in this area but Rosine's distinguishes itself by bringing everything together. Authentic food - given. Good wine from the region - you bet. Great atmosphere and excellent service - hell yeah. My kids are picky about where they eat and they love Rosine's.

This was our first time to Rosine’s. A friend had recommended. We had the one price per person and get appetizer, salad, entree, sides and dessert. We were stuffed after appetizer and when our waitress brought the plates for dessert I thought my stomach was going to burst but then I tasted. Oh my. We took lots home. Our waitress was attentive and very nice and knowledgeable. Live music was great too.

I like the food...it was very noisy. They where busy...not really great service but it was ok. I just think $35 is to expensive for lunch.

We had a party of ten and it took a very long time to get our food. I actually had lunch there today with a party of four and it also took a very long time to get our food., so I realize it wasn't the size of our party.

With the larger party, we asked our waiter several times for more pita bread. We had ordered some humus and when it finally got to the table, there wasn't any bread on the table to eat it with. Definitely disappointed with their service.

Rosine's was one of our favorite spots to eat on a weekly basis when we lived nearby. It has been about 8 years since we have been back due to living quite far away. When we were in LA we made plans to visit and even stay overnight nearby to eat once again at our favorite place.
Well, you know how it goes! Back then, it was smaller, everyone knew us and fantastic food and wine! This time, much larger, way noisier but the food was very good. Could not get a good wine recommendation unlike in the past when the owner was around but we did ok. Bottom line - you cannot compare the past since it is NEVER like it was 8+ years ago! Would I go again? Probably not. But, if you wish to try it out, make a reservation (especially on weekends) and go and enjoy! It really is good food!

Excellent as always. This time I was here for a business lunch which is ideal because the service is relatively quick since the rotisserie chicken is freshly cooked and can be carved and served. Excellent value, pleasant service.

The restaurant was recommended by a friend for great food. They were right. The roasted chicken was succulent and fall off the bones good. The waiter was very polite, knew the menu items well and assisted in our dinner selections. The cheese and meat Boregs were delicious as was the Walnut Cavier. Both recommended by out waiter. Great service, great food, lively atmosphere and a great experience!

By far one of my favorite restaurants of all time, the rotisserie chicken is moist and their hummus and tabbouleh is delicious. Definitely would love to branch out and try their other dishes, but I keep going back to their rotisserie chicken.

Made a reservation through open table, walked in, place was empty except for one table of 4. I asked for a table and they tried putting us (4) against the wall where you sit close to others. I insisted on table and was basically told either this wall or the other wall and that there are others who have reservations!!!! YES, so do we and I said NO, we sit at a table and a table only! We asked if owner was there.... NO!!! He left us standing in the middle of the restaurant for 5-7 minutes while he went in the back!!!! Doing what???? At least 10 empty tables! So we ended up at a table! Other tables (at least 5-6) stayed empty for over an hour!!! Waitress no personality, all mostly attitudes galore! Saw owner, we chatted, but did not mention anything to him since we had two other guests with us.... next time! FOOD IS GREAT, THE BEST EVERYTHING FROM DINNER, DRINKS AND DESSERT.... service stinks! We will go back because owner is great, his mom actively in the kitchen cooking, but the staff needs an attitude adjustment! NEVER ARGUE WITH A CUSTOMER, especially seniors!!!!
