The three of us each had the chicken saltimbocca my portion was great but the other two were rubbery/ tough day in texture. I don’t know how you remedy or identify this ahead of time, but it stinks to be stuck with it at a dinner.

WE have eaten at Rosemary many times. On this occasion the duck was tough and overcooked. The grouper was on the dry side. Despite being asked to have the bisque served very hot, it had to be returned to the kitchen to be heated up.
I know Saturday nights are busy, but we were disappointed with our experience this time.

We were disappointed with the Rosemary. It had been one of our favorites. We don't think that we will be returning. Many other great choices these days.

Service was very casual. Two gluten free dishes came with wheat bread. Fish dishes were overcooked. Staff dismantled tables around us while we were having dinner

We went for Thanksgiving dinner and it did not disappoint. Not the most exciting meal but very fulfilling. The service was excellent and the value very good. We will return for a regular meal.

None of the turkey meals we ordered were hot !
We did expect a hot meal!
Waiter did not get back to cheap on our meal so we had to start eating because the food we ordered was getting even colder so we ate paid and left not exactly a happy customer😂

We celebrated Thanksgiving with dinner at Rosemary & Thyme. The turkey dinner with all of the fixings including dessert was the best option on the menu. The other selections were served ala carte and were $$$. The service excellent. The ambiance very nice. Our reservations was for an early afternoon dinner before the crowd so the volume in the room was a good level for conversing at the table.

We had Thanksgiving lunch here, and we were fortunate enough to sit outside. We got there a bit early, and there were only a couple of other tables, so it was very peaceful. Our server, Chris, was very pleasant and knowledgeable, and was reasonably attentive. We got the duckling, Seabass, and salmon dishes. They were all excellent! The desserts were just okay, but certainly enjoyable enough.

I've been here before for a non-holiday dinner, and was very impressed that time, too. Many of my foodie friends highly recommend this restaurant, and I understand why. I will definitely return soon.

What a nice dining experience! Prix Fixe menu this month to celebrate their anniversary and it was fantastic! We had fresh fish, meat, duck and vegetarian dishes and all were great. Both the meal and the great wine we chose were reasonably priced. Service was very attentive!

Everything was great with two exceptions. Had to send cheesy grits back to be heated. They were barely warm. Brisket could have been hotter but just made it. Second, the salad dressing and sauce for mushroom appetizer came in little plastic recyclable containers. Not up to all the other high standards set by the restaurant. That being said we will be back.

Food and service were outstanding. Very loud and even though I had Open Table reservations we were seated by the door to the outside. So every time the servers opened the door to serve the people on the patio the coldness hit us. We both sat there with jackets and scarfs around our neck and were still cold. We were told there was no other table available. When I told the hostess on the way out my disappointment in the accommodations, she said without even a smile "The next time tell us that you do not want to sit near the door" then turned away. No, I am sorry or perhaps a free drink next time. I teach customer service and she definitely needs some.

Our second dinner in a month and was not disappointing. Superb, expert level food in a pleasant reasonably quiet dining room. Service good to very good, although waiting for the check took a bit too long. Parking is a problem, but that is not their fault. Overall, one of the best in Sarasota.

The food was some of the best I have enjoyed in Sarasota. The ambiance was very nice. The noise level was tolerable. The main dining room has high ceilings, which does not help with the noise level. The service was sincere but somewhat clumsy. I will definitely go again.

We enjoyed the special menu created for the 4th anniversary event. We were seated promptly even though we were early and served immediately. Great food choices, great service and exceptional value. We are going to the restaurant again next week for Thanksgiving and are looking forward to trying that menu
