Food was excellent. Pasta is handmade, sauces were delicious. One of the best Italian meals I've had in a long time. Great, fresh cocktail as well. Server was perfect.

The Rosebud was seriously the best Italian food I've ever had (and I lived in Brooklyn for 10 years.) The bar service and maitre'd were great. Our waiter was all business, but you could see other waiters hugging their regular customers and engaging in conversation. My daughter's first authentic Italian food and it was a BIG hit!

The Rosebud is our Special occasion place to replace the one we had when we lived in Michigan. Patrick was outstanding, as always. He asked if we had special plans that required us to leave at at certain time (tickets to a musical) and he was able to accommodate our time frame without feeling rushed. We even had time to enjoy a cappuccino at the end of the meal. Tried something new, the tortellini carbonara and it's making a mushroom lover out of my husband.

We always go here before the black hawks games. This visit was very disappointing. Our waiter was very disengaged with our table. My sister felt that was because we did not have a man at our table. We never received a refill on our drinks; and the worst part was that we watched about seven employees and twenty guests walk by our food for five minutes before it was served to us. We bet on if it would get knocked to the floor or not. I almost wished it would have because eating it after so much exposure was hardly appealing. Oh, the best part of the meal was the $22 butter noodles. Not sure if we will be back.....

Went there before a Hawk's game. Food was excellent, service was great. Staff asked us up front what time we wanted to leave for the game and they did an excellent job of watching the clock for us and making sure everything was timed perfectly.

We were celebrating our engagement and had an amazing dinner last night.

Our waiter Jay was great! He helped us pick out a nice bottle of wine and made wonderful suggestions for each course. The jumbo shrimp that we ordered for an appetizer were in fact jumbo, maybe even bordering lobster tail territory, and were delicious. Jay offered many tempting specials for our entre, but we couldn’t stray away from our favorite, pappardelle marinara. Of course, you can’t get pappardelle marinara without adding the best meatballs on the planet. By this point we were thoroughly stuffed, but that didn’t stop Jay from trying to entice us with a dessert. We passed this time, but those desserts of theirs are incredible too. I think the crème brule is my favorite so far.

We really couldn’t have asked for a better experience. We will be back many more times.

It was Valentine's Day. The food server took 40 minutes to take our order. Ravioli was luke warm. It just seemed like this night was not their best. I feel bad I spent this night out and the food didn't come out well.

It was Valentine’s Day so it was expected to be busy. It took 30 minutes from checking into our reservation to get a seat. We sat at a table with cheap folding chairs and it took 15 minutes for us to put a drink order in. We ordered our food with our drink and pretty much every table around us sat after us got served. We arrived at 7:30 and for our food around 930. The food, when it arrived, was great tasting! But the wait and ambiance was not up to par. Again, I realize it was a holiday but they may have been pushing their limits a bit.

Huge disappointment. Sitting majority of minorities upstairs is offensive. Use of cheap and flimsy plastic chairs and tables was highly uncomfortable and tacky. Service deplorable because not enough waiters. Food good, but can go to other locations for a “real” restaurant

I was surprised by the item which was a special. Though I should have been more proactive, I wished my server would have better indicated the size of the portion and its price. I was caught of guard...in my humble opinion it was enough of a portion to feed three people.
