    We were seated outside so the street noise was fairly loud, but the service team was attentive and the food was absolutely delicious. The lasagna was the best that I think I have ever had at any restaurant. We will definitely return when we are in town!

    We really liked our meal, the service and the choice to sit outdoors. The menu is large and full of great choices. We chose omelettes and they were delicious. Side potatoes were perfectly crisped. The cakes and pies and cookies in the display caes are amazing. We took home a slice of carrott cake. Sooo delicious!

    I had anticipated a place with great food and an atmosphere where I could have a special meal with the family. Wow was I wrong. 1) it was very very loud inside. That may be a function of it being packed or a function of the place is arranged. 2) The interior is more set up more like a galley than a nicer place to eat. That has a time and place, I wasn’t looking for that at the moment. 3) The place needs an update / new paint scheme, it comes off as dirty. 4) The food was bad, really bad. The pasta was over cooked and the Italian meat thing I got was bland. One exception: the family thought the Minestrone Soup was good. 5) Service was meh, at best. Main dish came out immediately following the starter salad and soups and it threw everything off. Server was friendly but a tad snarky in a bad way. Overall, I’m not ever going to go back. We ended up not even trying the desserts (they looked good!) because we didn’t want to eat anything more from there. Things aren’t all bad, on a positive note: if you want a huge serving of food, THIS is your place. You get a ton of food.

    Rosine's RestaurantResponded on June 4, 2022Dear EnriqueP, we sent you a private message regarding your numbered comments. We do apologize you didn't enjoy your breaded meat and pasta dish. It is difficult to control the noise level as our guests like to have fun while dining with us. We would have gladly accommodated you and your family if your food dislikes were mentioned to us. We are celebrating our 42nd year in business and we are here to please every guest that walks in our front doors.

    Excellent everything, as usual! I was celebrating my birthday which I mentioned to one of the servers, and I was surprised when the piece of cake I had selected was brought to me with a lit candle! The whole restaurant sang happy birthday to me. I felt very special. Thanks for going above and beyond to provide a great experience!

    In Monterey from Pennsylvania for a short visit, we (party of four) chose Rosine's for a birthday dinner based on favorable reviews. Food and service were excellent and very reasonably priced. Staff was attentive and hard working. We all left very satisfied. Highly recommend reservations. Like all good restaurants, Sunday early evening business was brisk, and parties without reservations had waits of up to 45 minutes. Even with a reservation, we had a 15 minute wait.

    We got a pasta dish and salad. Neither was memorable and both lacked seasoning. The salad was mostly iceberg lettuce and just didn’t taste very fresh.

    The interior of the restaurant needs to be updated. The carpets were filthy. chips in the chairs and paint on walls, with tables old and dated. The salad and chicken parmesan and fedacine alfredo were amazing. probably the best I ever had.

    I chose this place because I was able to get a table for 8 people after we celebrated the funeral vigil for my grandmother. They were also able to add a 9th place to the table. Food was delicious and service was awesome for a large group like us. I’ll definitely come back here again!

    I really enjoyed the atmosphere at Rosines. It really felt like eating with a bunch of family members. The noise level was moderate, but more like a family sitting down together and everyone talking about their day. Our waitress was so sweet, but I don’t recall her name. The drinks weren’t bad either.
