Birthday celebration—the outside courtyard was wonderful. Will definitely return to this restaurant.

I really wanted this place to be better, because the menu has great options. However, all members of my party felt like everything we ordered was very bland with not a lot of taste. The food was quite disappointing. The outdoor patio looked very cute, but the inside rooms lacked character and ambiance. The prices we paid just don’t match up to the food quality, the ambiance, and the level of service we received. I’m sad to say that we probably won’t be back.

We arrived 10 minutes before our reservation for a table for 2 outside at 6PM. As we were shown to a table I would estimate the outside was only 40% occupied. The girl took us to a table way in the back corner where no one was seated. I asked to be moved and she refused, saying they were all reserved. I pointed out that we too had a reservation to no avail. Many other parties of two were seated after we arrived. Too bad, it tainted what could have been a very nice evening. The food and the server were very good.

The meal presentation was excellent. I had the meatloaf, which was somewhat lacking in flavor. My wife had the lobster ravioli, which was richly tasty. The outdoor dining felt safe and was quite pleasant. There were lots of heaters, which kept the Florida windchill at bay.

Ambiance and service were excellent. Food mediocre. Very overpriced for what you get. Salmon for $40 is crazy.
For the seasonable vegetables of carrots and string beans, many of the carrots were not cooked enough and the string beans were inedible. The risotto was a gummy mess! This is inexcusable for these prices.

Superb food from an eclectic menu was a highlight in this delightfully charming setting.
A slight drawback was the inadequate choice of decent wines and a paucity of choices of liquor.

The outdoor dining venue is most enjoyable with tables well spaced and quiet ambient noise! The staff is pleasant although our wait staff seemed a little overwhelmed. Everyone enjoyed their dinner selections. My cocktail, a Sidecar, was one of the best I have had in a long time! They have a full bar and a reasonable wine list. We hope to go again soon.

We went here for a birthday dinner and was amazed at how good the food was. Everybody loved what they had from appetizers to dessert. The fish was outstanding. Service was superb as well. A good find.

We love The Rosemary! Dining outside is absolutely lovely and all of the tables are spaced far apart. My pancakes were surprisingly dry but still enjoyed being in such a wonderful atmosphere!

Awesome restaurant. Aside from delicious food, they take extraordinary steps to safeguard the health of employees and patrons. Tables exceed social distancing guidelines; staff wear masked at all times. Servers are knowledgeable about menu and attentive without being intrusive.

Ordered the steak and scallops. The steak was incredibly tough and the scallops were a bit overcooked. Drinks were great. My wife ordered the scallops and was not satisfied with them, being overcooked. The dessert was excellent as was the service by Jesse.

Our waiter, J.C made excellent menu recommendations & provided great service - ask for him! The outdoor ambience was lovely, with tables well spaced & the staff all had masks on which was very respectful & protective of all.
I had the duck - perfectly crisp on the outside & moist on the inside. My husband’s lamb chop was delicious. The asparagus salad (it easily served two) was unique and flavorful. Diverse wine list reasonably priced. The key lime pie was very good & served in a decorative manner which was lovely. And there was a musician playing softly in the background. We will be back.

Excellent patient service-very accommodating. Heaters were moved near us when it became cold. Food excellent except for the fried calamari which were not hot enough and seemed to have little calamari. In retrospect I should have returned it.

The tiramisu was outstanding.

Very welcoming

The food here is always terrific and the outdoor atmosphere lovely. I have been several times, always had a good meal but the service definitely needs work. It is slow but enjoyable if you want to linger and spend the evening at dinner (I do like that sometimes) but not so good if one has theatre tickets and need to eat, drink and get the check fairly promptly.

Our server (Liam) was excellent. Very professional and informative but not pushy at all. We love being outside and feel R & T handles the Covid 19 virus safety measures well. We enjoyed the special fish of the night (Branzino) as well as two apps.

We were there for Sunday brunch and by the time our order was taken, you were out of my first choice-the Benedict and then my second choice-quiche Lorraine. My meal as very good, but not what I was hoping for. That’s why not more stars.
