    Chicken breast was slightly over cooked and the lasagna was excellent but you could tell it had been under a heat lamp for a little too long. Lamb shanks was amazing. That minestrone though. That was life changing.

    We went with a larger party on Easter Sunday. We needed to add people to our party 3 days prior, and they were super accommodating. Upon arrival, we were seated immediately. The service from start to finish was excellent. Every person (from 6 years old to 86 years old) enjoyed their food. The menu selection was perfect for everyone in our group. Thank you Rosine’s for making our Easter so great!

    2 people in our party. Checked in on time and were told booths were only available for 4 people. I requested a booth when we signed on with Open Table. The restaurant was not that busy (11:45 AM). We found it strange they put us at a small out of the way table. I showed our reservation on my phone and the booth request for two people. The hostess blamed Open Table.

    The restaurant is always loud, but being seated near the kitchen makes it worse. It was almost impossible to hear our table mates at times, and the constant flow of servers was distracting. Our server was fantastic, and the food was delicious, as always!

    Go for the French toast - homemade French bread French toast, nothing better. The other dishes were also fabulous with a special call out to their breakfast sausage - delish! It is always crowded because it is so good, a favorite with locals and tourists.

    Went to Rosine’s for our 49th anniversary dinner. Everything was outstanding! We had calamari, minestrone soup and lasagna! The absolute best minestrone and lasagna we’ve ever had—well done Rosine’s 👌😊

    Excellent service! It always bothers me when they up charge two extra dollars on a sandwich because you chose sweet potato fries. I had reserved for a birthday lunch, but there was no decor on the table and no dessert was brought with a candle. I know a lot of restaurants are cutting back and not doing that anymore but it would have been nice.

    Disappointed with this restaurant. Was under the impression that it was supposed to be fine dining. It was very casual. Paper napkins wrapped around silverware. We were celebrating with friends celebrating their 51st wedding anniversary. When I ate my dinner salad, placed my fork on my plate and the waiter said to keep the fork. Said no and asked for a clean fork. I advised the restaurant of this celebration and no dessert sent to the couple. We asked for a dessert menu and they said we have to get up from the table and choose something from their counter of pastries. The bathroom was very dirty. I had high expectations and will not be back.

    Excellent meal at a small independent restaurant. You can tell the team really cares and puts their best efforts toward service. The lasagna, Cesar salad and minestrone soup were excellent. There were some minor misses with other dishes like the calamari starter and their pesto is creamy but still good. Would return again. Great dessert options also and family friendly.

    Our past experience was so amazing that we made a five hour drive to eat there again, only to find it wasn’t worth it. The dressing on the steak salad was overwhelmingly tart and doesn’t go well, the amount of steak for that price was less than minimal, plus it was cold and undercooked. The pork chop my husband ordered had the flavor of old oil. While the waiter had a great personality, he never came to check on us for us to tell him of our dissatisfaction with our meals, so we paid for food we didn’t like or finish, and gave him a mandated 20% tip for not checking on us. Two thumbs down.
