Overall fun experience! Went for a birthday and was not told about the dining limit (figured there would be one but the waiter should have explicitly stated this when she first came by or when we were first seated). After the 2 hour limit mark a man came up to us and said “hate to break it to you but you’re way over the limit” could have said it much nicer...

Great place for brunch. Loved the open air feel as it keeps noise down. Interesting menu, lots of good stuff but you can't make changes easily.

Overall enjoyable. Just the food came out way before the drinks including the steak! The steak was quite unenjoyable and had clearly just been sitting in the kitchen pass ready for someone to order it as it came it in under 5 minutes

We did get there 10 minutes late, however we were told we would only have 5min (so 15 minutes if we were on time) to order because they were switching from the brunch menu.. & they said we couldn’t order from the dinner menu. We get in line to order, by the time the couple in front of us ordered (assume same happened to them as they were saying reservations only) the server said they were already closing the kitchen so we couldn’t order.
Extra annoying because I called days ahead to confirm the reservation & I wasn’t given a heads up about them giving me a reservation that was only good for 15 minutes. Also we could only sit in the front where the patio isn’t as nice as the back.. didn’t know I had to ask for the back patio. And it was Valentine’s Day..

Food and drinks are mediocre for the price.

We love Rose, but we were extremely disappointed with our recent experience. They have just reopened (due to Covid), so hopefully it improves, but...
We were seated in the newly tented area (built where the parking lot used to be). Tables were spaced far far apart; there were no heaters, no music, just a very sterile/weird/cold environment. And many empty tables so there were very few people in this huge tent. I wore a down jacket the entire meal, and was shivering.
The food was great, besides the scallops; the sauce was way too overpowering of a weird spice. The Brussels, salads, vegetables, etc were otherwise delicious. Service was wonderful. Just don’t sit in the new tent if you want to enjoy your meal.

First, COVID online menu did not have prices. They brought us paper menus, but then forgot drink menus. We had to ask again. Their Sea Cucumber Drink machine wasn’t working. They were out of some menu items. The food was mediocre, but overpriced. Not many heaters outside. That’s about it.

We have liked going to this place many times in the past. This review is mostly for covid. I don’t know how they are allowed to have diners in the tent that is mostly closed. So many people walking around with no masks either. Food was excellent. But we’ll do take out until it’s safe to eat there.

Sat on very back patio (parking lot patio), so as nice as it can get I guess.
The Bee Pizza seemed quite pricey.
Enjoyed our visit.

We were here as the new president was announced. It was wild on Rose and we were in the perfect location to see it all. It was pretty cold outside but they use art of tea and the earl gray was nice. I was super basic in my food choice from being hungover so I got a children’s plate of scrambled eggs and toast (thankful they let me order that) the hot sauce was extremely tasty. My cousin got the lox and enjoyed the sandwich and her girl got the huevos rancheros and she was cool with that too. Overall good experience even though it was cold out and I felt terrible but it was great to see the celebration on the streets with a heater next to me.

We went for my friends birthday lunch. The lunch menu has changed since the pandemic. I expected delicious sandwiches, salads, and great lunch options but unfortunately the menu did not have these items.

We ordered the octopus ceviche, it was very fishy and seemed old abs very chewy. The chicken shawarma salad was small and not tastey. The Korean fried chicken sandwich was heavily seasoned and dressed, very overwhelming in thick sauce.

The pepperoni pizza and fries were the only good dishes we had unfortunately.

Also food is overpriced and small portions. I was very disappointed.

Highly recommended.

Really wanted this to be good but alas! Three of us ordered two chef neroni-style and one breakfast sandwich

Suspicions were aroused when the two chef neroni-style arrived 90 seconds after ordering .... hmmm how long have they been lying around!

Then the wait- 25 to 30 minutes later the breakfast sandwich arrived which was basically the chef neroni-style breakfast constructed

And the rub was the bacon - if you are going to sell a bacon chop instead of bacon call it that... far too thick to call it bacon and far too fatty

To the servers credit he didn’t charge for the sandwich but at @ still over $125 (inc tip) for 3 bloody Mary’s and the two breakfasts a complete rip off

Crab risotto was a little too “fishy and hangar steak was served unsliced... which I’ve never seen before and makes it a difficult “shared” plate especially during covid. It was cooked to the right doneness but lacked flavor. The best thing we ordered was the persimmon, tomato & ricotta salad

The food was very average. The lunch menu is much better. We went for dinner and you couldn't order any of the pizzas and that's the best thing they have. The service was average too, the server didn't know too much info. The restaurant was also pretty empty and they stuck us at a table in the front on the street. We asked if we can move to a table in the back since there are so many tables back there and the area is much more enjoyable. (No crazy Venice people to interrupt your dinner). Prob would only go back for lunch. Also it's extremely overpriced for subpar food.
