Very good food, enjoyed everything. However I was not a fan of having to order everything at once and then they take the menu from you.

The oysters weren’t cleaned or cut making it difficult not hack up the tiny oysters. They were out of the chicken sandwich leaving handheld options from the menu that day limited. The smash burger was good, but shouldn’t be $19 especially with a modest amount of cold, burnt homemade chips. The snap pea salad was under seasoned, lacked a vinaigrette and the veggies seemed to be drowning in water making the whipped ricotta disgusting. I stopped eating because it was a waste of calories and figured I would eat somewhere else later. The server was mediocre at best.

We were there once before and had an amazing experience. Unfortunately this time around, it was one of the worst experiences I’ve had in LA. We had a reservation, but they had us wait 30 minutes until after the time until we were seated. It turns out they had marked a walk up table as our table, and sat them in our place. They finally sat us at a table surrounded in bugs. Both of those could’ve been overlooked had I not received used/dirty utensils and a dead bug not in my food. Service was fine until after we found the dead bug, where then we barely saw our waiter. They then tried to charge us for the ceviche with the bug in it. We only had max 2 bites before noticing the bug and asked her immediately to take it back (didn’t ask or receive a replacement). I’m really sad about this experience because I thought we found our new favorite spot :(

The good: drinks were good, espresso martini was amazing!

Parking is limited and valet is $15 with $1 service fee for cards which sucked. Drinks were great, food can be overpriced due to small servings depending on what you get BUT our service was great and the ambiance was great too

The outdoor back patio is great for maintaining distance and fresh air. plenty of heaters to keep everyone warm once the sun goes down Food was delicious. Plenty of choices. the only thing with dining outdoors is that the food gets cold really fast so you have to eat quickly.

Are used to love the rose café in Venice. This was my first time dining there in over a year and I was really looking forward to it. It was a supreme disappointment. The menu has completely changed, the food was subpar at best, and it was very expensive to boot.

I didn’t get a table in the back patio as requested for my 40th birthday but we had a lovely evening on the less and the server was very kind. The table was just set for five not six but that was easily sorted and the food was delicious as always. It was nice to sit inside by the bar for a cocktail before dinner as well

Confirming the reservation was a challenge, i tried changing the time and it led to issues...i went in person, was reassured that it was changed and when we arrived it had not been changed. The manager in charge did what he could do to make it work for us, after we waited around for a while....

When you make a reservation you expect you’ll be seated at the time of the reservation or within a few minutes. You do not expect to be directed to a 20+ person deep line to wait upwards of 30 minutes for your table. Unfortunately my last experience at Rose was unfortunate due to the above situation. They should consider changing their system to “walk in only” if they can’t handle reservations.

I went to the Rose for dinner and the food was delicious! We were seated in their extended outdoor dining area (I wish we were seated more in the front / patio) but it was still nice. The wait staff was very friendly! All of their dishes are meant to be shared. A few of my favorite dishes we ordered: Korean BBQ Bone Marrow, Rigatoni, and Arugula Salad. The s'mores dessert is a MUST!

They have a time limit and reminded us about it about 4 times during our meal. They rushed us out when there were clearly tons of tables open. Bussers were stalking our table. We couldn’t get through a conversation or even put the glass down after a final sip without them pouncing on us and interrupting us asking if we are ok. I love appropriate attentiveness but this was just obnoxious.

We ended up going down the street to
Chulita for a second drink which we would have just as easily of had at Rose if they didn’t push us out.

Dumb. Pretentious. Overpriced.

We got sat at table all the way in the corner under the tree. My friend found a little bug in her drink probably from sitting under the tree. It was a cold day heat lamp didn’t do much. I had the kale salad it was very mediocre. Waiter said drinks were balanced there were in fact extremely strong. Nice place nothing great probably would not go back.

Food is amazing, This was our third time and it’s always great. But it’s very expensive. They asked twice if it was a special occasion. It was - a double birthday and a big milestone birthday. Also told the waiter. But no one said anything or did anything or comped anything. Okay, so why ask? Courses came too fast, three at a time.
