The Savor Sarasota menu was fantastic. Three courses for $32 and half price bottles of wine. The menu choices were extensive. Highly recommend.

I love this restaurant and have probably eaten here 10 times. However, on Sunday the food was not good. It appeared to have been precooked and heated up. To serve. Big mistake ordering mussels which had been reheated and served with cracked shells. I’ll be back but never on Sunday. Our waiter was super.

We celebrated a special occasion and we were all well satisfied with our dinners. The service was very attentive and all were looking forward to our next visit. The Savor Sarasota menu was still available which made all of us very happy because there is such a variety of food to choose from. I believe it runs until the end of October. We recommend it highly.

This was our second visit in as many weeks. We enjoyed another fantastic meal. All bottles of wine were 50% off and the specials were out of this world. Scott Hinds thanked us for coming in and we had an enjoyable conversation with him. We look forward to many more trips to Rosemary & Thyme.

Karolina our waitress was wonderful the wine we ordered was very good the pork osso bucco and the calves liver were excellent my friend and I ordered the lamb chops and even though they were prepared medium rare and rare they were very tough and chewy so we were disappointed with that entrée. My husband and I will definitely come back but I will be trying a different entrée and hopefully I’ll have a better review to share.

We had dinner last night at the Rosemary, where we have dined a number of times before this. We were in the side room, the newer room that is quieter. The food was outstanding, and the service was excellent. We were not aware that they had a three-course prixe fix dinner menu for $36. It offered many choices, and it was a great value. We plan to return in two weeks. Just one peculiar note. They asked if we wanted more bread at one point. We said, yes, and they brought two slices. Just a very minor footnote. Parking is easy. Highly recommended.

We love this restaurant but had a less than stellar experience this time. The waitress we had seemed inattentive at best...we had to ask her several times about our entrees and when she finally brought them out, they were lukewarm (although the food was excellent as always).This is the first time we had that experience and perhaps she was a new server. We’ll be back but thought you might like to know.

Rosemary/Thyme does not disappoint . We've gone at least 8 times this summer and enjoyed every meal. The service is always pleasant and efficient, and you can't beat the Savor Sarasota price; especially with the wine at half price. I can't remember another restaurant I've enjoyed this much.

Filet mignon extremely tough and chewy. Assume they buy less than prime, less than choice? Grouper very odd sour flavor. Atmosphere nice.

Extensive menu that had many appealing offerings. I chose the catch of the day with extra vegetables in place of risotto or potato. It was very satisfying and left room for dessert. Chocolate flourless decadence cake was just the right touch.

The food and service were outstanding. We were called the afternoon of our reservations to tell us that that there was only outside seating available. We opted to accept that arrangement. The weather cooperated and it was a beautiful evening. Their outside courtyard was very comfortable. As a special surprise it happened that they were offering their bottles of wine at half price. This was our second visit and will certainly not be our last. Everything on the menu sounded great. Our choices were outstanding. Our waiter (Liam) did an outstanding job. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

Sat outside and enjoyed a wonderful meal. Service was also excellent ---- hadn't been to the new location (remembered Rosemary on the corner) and were delighted to be welcomed by a host who remembered us from a now defunct restaurant that we also enjoyed. Will definitely be back for more!!

Our server, Raoul, was exceptionally professional. He handled all requests graciously. We were surprised that Savor Sarasota was still offered which provides excellent value for a three-course dinner. AND, bottles of wine were half-priced the evening we dined! What a welcome surprise.

Our birthday celebration dinner with friends at Rosemary-Thyme was really nice. The food was delicious - perfectly cooked seafood dishes, melt-in-your mouth osso bucco, fresh crisp salads and a yummy dessert selection. Love
that they have continued their Savor menu which offers nearly as many choices as the regular menu! Oh and how about bottles of wine at half price! We LOVE this place!
