    Service and food quality was good. Portion for the lamb chops was minimal with 4 very small ribs that were about 2 bites each. Small for a $40+ entree. Also, upon making our reservation, and upon arrival, we were asked if it was a special occasion and we shared that we were there for my mom's 70th birthday. At the conclusion of the meal we asked if they might be bringing cake or something and we were told that everyone is there for their birthday and that they don't bring a small dessert for birthdays or special occasions. I thought that was a bit cheap of the restaurant after spending $300 on a meal for my mom's and family. Otherwise, it was a pleasant evening, however the small touches matter and the Rose Garden didn't deliver.

    Food was excellent, service very good, check the price for the specials before deciding. Mine was $15 higher then any other menu item. It was very good but $60 was a bit pricy

    My wife and I have been at your restaurant on several occasions and enjoyed each time we were there. My suggestion would be to change your menu. Customers are limited to the same selections except the specials. If you don’t care for duck, rack of lamb or pasta you don’t have much of a selection. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to express my opinion. Jerry and Diane Binder.

    My husband truly enjoyed his food. He probably would give it the highest star. However if you have issues with garlic you might want to ask for them to hold it. I also did not care for the roasted vegetables with such things as turnip. The desert was very good. the service was excellent. The setting itself is great. They had a pianist playing and it added to the charm.

    Have been going to The Rose Plantation for lunch for many years . Recently my wife & I decided to go for our first dinner there to celebrate our anniversary. It was a Friday so prime rib was on the menu. It was outstanding. Probably the best prime rib I’ve ever eaten. Done perfectly. The sides of mushrooms and asparagus were also excellent. Overall all a very nice evening. The cherry pie was outstanding as usual. The service was a bit slow at times. We had to flag our server a few times during the meal.

    We thought the food was a bit bland but maybe were just used to spicier foods. I had the snapper and it needed something, such as a lemon butter sauce maybe. Next time I will order something else.

    Service was a bit slow, but I suspect that was because several new servers had recently been hired, according to our waitress. The food was good as usual, although the lobster bisque had no discernible lobster meat in it, and my rack of lamb was, in fact, two separate lamb chops that had been grilled then placed together on my plate. When we arrived, I ordered a very dry Bombay Sapphire martini, and a short while later the waitress brought a chilled glass and a shaker which she placed on the table. Since she made no effort to pour it, I picked up the shaker after she had left to get the extra chill with a few shakes but was disappointed to find that there was no ice in the shaker. I poured the drink into my glass and tasted only vermouth but said nothing since the waitress never returned to see if the drink was satisfactory. At the end of our meal when the check came, I noticed a $14 charge for gin, a $3 up charge for Bombay Sapphire, and a $4 up charge for “served up”. I don’t mind paying $21 for a martini if it is properly prepared and served, but this was neither! Sadly, there still is no fine dining anywhere in or around The Villages in Florida.
