    When having a special as they did last night, the foods should not be prepared ahead of time. Three meets, although tender and tasty were overdone. Med/well, not medium rare! Detracted from a delightful evening.

    The Summer prix fixe menu at $39 for three courses was a great deal. Pork Osso Bucco was incredibly delicious and fell off the bone. We love this place and go often.

    My husband and I went to Rosemary and Thyme for the steak and lobster special. It was delicious. My husband had the Bermuda fish chowder and declared it the best soup he’s ever had. Bonus: live violin music played during dinner.

    As usual dinner was great! We were met by name at the door by Jeff. We immediately felt welcome and appreciated as neighbors. Phil took our cocktail order and said he would take care of us. He did and service was outstanding. Keep up the great work. One our favorite place in all of Sarasota.

    We loved the steak and lobster combo on the $39 menu. My husband had his favorite osso bucco. So he could bring the bone home for our puppy. They both gave it top ratings. As usual, the service was first rate.

    Everything about our visit was perfect. We originally had requested outdoor seating, which they gracefully switched indoors for us, even though it was a packed house. We had a fixed price meal, so we were expecting less than a great dinner for a lesser cost. To our surprise, everything was outstanding! We loved the meal, our hosts and server, and the quaint venue as well. We will be back for sure!

    Dining out here in the gated garden is special. We started wirh escargots which weres served outside the shells which was different. My wife had grouper and was very pleased with it. I usually have seafood, but decided to try the porkloin which was excellent. This was from a prix fixe menu. Service was very good and they brought the dog water without being ssked. Will definitely return.

    The food and service were excellent. The only drawback, there were 5 of us and were seated at a folding table, like you would buy at Costco. Those of us on the end battled the legs of the table. I suggest they invest in a sturdy table that seats more people of pull other tables together. Not a deal breaker, just annoying. We will go back.

    We went with another couple for their $39 prix fixe dinner and as usual it was wonderful. We were greeted and then were told it's not $39 but rolled back to $32! How great is that. Still my favorite restaurant period.

    Rosemary and Thyme continues to provide excellent meals at a reasonable price. This was our 4th visit to partake one of the Chef's fantastic wine dinners. Each one has included an appetizer, soup or salad, entrée and desert each paired with an accompanying wine for just $39 per person! As always, the food was superb, the service outstanding and the ambiance was perfect, even with a surprise rain shower! Thanks for a wonderful time and we will see you next week!
