    We dined with friends. We shared the calamari appetizer. It was delicious and very light and tender. Entrees ordered include filet, sea scallops, and sea bass. Again, all were excellent. Or server, Alejandra, was excellent and delightful. We will definitely be back!

    We had not yet been to R&T this season. Friends were in town from Boca and we wanted to take them to dinner. R&T was our first choice. They and we truly enjoyed our dining experience. Our guests were especially impressed. Thanks to all of you at R&T for making for a wonderful dinner and evening.

    Food- Table of 5 had 2 appetizers of Caesar salad and fish chowder. We actually passed the chowder around for everyone to taste it was so good. The Caesar salad was generous, tasty, but overdressed. We followed with the Black Grouper, the NY strip, the duck, and 2 orders of the night’s special ribs. The waiter suggested that we may want to split the rib order because it was very generous but we were thinking leftovers and went with 2 orders. We should have paid attention to the waiter! The rib portions were huge, 14 ribs per order. The duck was delicious, sauce served on the side so you can control the sweetness. The steak was perfect and the grouper excellent. Ambience- Inside, decor was white tablecloth. What we enjoyed most was the use of eclectic China patterns for all the courses. Pretty and fun! Outside- decor was twinkle light, very pretty. Restaurant was very busy for a Sunday night but service was good and timing for food was good.

    Ambiance felt like being in Europe. Made reservations but had to sit outside even though it was a chilly evening end of February. Grilled pork chop didn’t have much flavor, friend ordered duck which was dry. Very expensive for what you get. Bread was great - service was OK.

    This was my first visit to Rosemary and Thyme, and it definitely won't be my last. The ambience, staff, and food were all amazing! Michael was our attentive, knowledgable server, and his suggestions were spot-on; the watermelon radish halibut was the best halibut I've ever had. I have celiac disease, and there are many gluten-free options and Michael checked with the chef to ensure that what I ordered was safe. It was a delightful evening and we cannot wait to return.

    Always an outstanding dining experience, one of our favorite Sarasota restaurants, with a new expanded menu. Beautiful inside dining rooms with lovely outdoor large patio available for seating. We enjoyed their signature meat loaf, and fresh grilled grouper entrees, shared yummy carrot cake for dessert.

    We had a terrific dinner. My martini was great--the metal martini glass kept it very chilled and it was made to my order description. We both had halibut, different preparation--both were excellent. Our service was timely and pleasant, the server provided detailed answers to our questions. The chocolate mousse cake was delicious. The main dining room is very nice and quiet, so we could talk without being loud. Thanks for a great evening.

    Katrina our waitress was wonderful, soup of the day was French onion and everything about it was perfect. Had a delicious martini off their craft cocktails. The prime ny strip was tender and cooked perfectly and nicely seasoned. Added sea scallops to my entree, and they were so tender exactly what I expect when ordering seas scallops.

    We plan to return, so we can dine outside. While the dining area was lovely, the noise level made it difficult to carry on a conversation. The Bermuda soup was outstanding with a rich, deep broth. My husband found the large pork chop a bit tough, yet the plentiful vegetables were outstanding.

    This was our first visit to R&T. Everything was elegant and the food was excellent. Our server was professional and very knowledgeable. We ordered the Pork Osso Bucco and the Meatloaf. We really enjoyed it and judging form the full house on a Sunday evening, it is definitely a great find.

    I hope they are not slipping, it's been a great brunch place for several years. Ordered their bagel with lox, supposedly on an everything bagel. Instead a burned plain bagel was subbed. The server exchanged it right away, but how did that item escape the kitchen? First cup of coffee was quick, but waited too long for a refill. Chose not to get the one quiche offered that day. But then overheard another server describe three quiches that were available. Maybe I never would have gotten the charred bagel had I known about the Greek quiche. They have nice outdoor seating, but the indoors room we were seated was sterile like an art gallery that's unconnected to the great outdoors. There are so many nice places for brunch in Sarasota, I hope we make it back and I hope things go better next time.

    I had the ossobuco and it was really like a roast pork. It lacked the rich identifying sauce sans carrots, celery, onion as major ingredients that distinguish the plate from what it should have been. My husband had the veal shank which also lacked taste. The expected complexities of rosemary, butter, or any spice for that matter were completely void in this dish. It was extremely bland. Truly dissappointing. The waitress also did not offer a taste sample of the bottle of wine we ordered which was a major faux pas for a fine restaurant. The ambience is fine enough… but with this meal, the decor merely offered a cloak for mediocre food.

    I was at Rosemary a few months ago and really liked. This time it wasn’t the same, the person who served us was a little lost, while we were having dinner the staff were tidying up the room with cardboard boxes and the prices was also well above what we expected. Unfortunately we didn’t have a good experience.
