    We had a very nice dinner and a couple of cocktails and have no complaints on either. I had the lamb shanks and the portion was large, tender and flavorful. Out of the several times we have dined at Rosine’s we have yet to have a negative experience.

    This place is overrated. Don’t be fooled by the DDD “endorsement”. It’s a small notch above cafeteria food, but it is relatively affordable compared to other restaurants. Not what I was hoping for.

    This is a very nice family restaurant with very good food in very large portions. My lasagna was excellent and my wife’s pasta as well. We sat outside with our dog and a heater later and it was a wonderful street to be on which at the Magic moment was on let up trees and all. I would recommend this restaurant you’ll have a very nice experience there

    The atmosphere is loud and very bright, like a cafeteria. Our waitress messed up our order twice and we never did get the right food. Asked us how we wanted our hamburgers cooked, and we said medium rare. She didn't tell us that California has a law that restricts cooking of hamburger meat to medium well or well done. So, why did she ask. Avoid this place unless you like getting the wrong food cooked the way you don't want it!!

    Rosine ran out of some of the food items. Two dishes were overcooked. The steak was overcooked and was sliced in half. It did not look like a steak. One of the side dishes was barely warm. There was a long delay from the time of our order and the delivery of the entrees.

    Gnats covered the painted walls in our booth. Got in our drink, buzzed us constantly. Food ok; carpets need cleaning as you can tell the mgmt has let things slip. A little tlc would go a long way.

    The food was cold. Our booth smelled like a wet dog- the whole place feels unclean. Lasagne was awful. Just no good. Wait staff friendly but obviously accustomed to complaints.

    Our table was ready even though part of our party arrived 15 minutes early. They sat half of our group and we ordered drinks while we waited for the other half of our group. Honestly the other half of our group was probably right behind us but they couldn’t get past the beautiful display of desserts before being seated. Apparently they pre ordered a piece of cake before dinner! We came during Car Week - It was loud, busy and crowded. But did that stop them from serving outstanding food or providing excellent service? No, it did not! Everyone loved their food, the service was great. Our waiter was very attentive and patient with us. We will be back again.

    In Monterey for business and Rosine’s had good reviews. My wife had a chicken Cesar salad and I had their world famous lasagna. Outstanding service, very good food and deserts to die for. Next time we visit Monterey we’ll eat at Rosine’s.

    Don't miss rosines when you are in Monterey. Food, service and friendliness outrageously great. Parking is tricky though but we'll worth the trip. Possibly the best food in Monterey. Don't miss the minestrone soup also

    Each meal was absolutely delicious! Everything was fresh and mouthwatering! We will definitely dine here again when in Monterey. I had the pasta and meatballs and I normally do not eat half of my meal, but this one kept me coming back for more and I barely had any leftovers! I hate that they sold out of the key lime pie before we arrived. I really wanted to try it!
