Excellent service! The pasta with broccoli and chicken is never a disappointment! I have been going to Rosebud Theater District for years but had actually not been there for about a year. Always friendly hosts, excellent service and delicious food with large servings leaving enough for the next day.

The food was delicious with very large portions. Wine was also very good. Service was attentive without being intrusive. It was a perfect place for dinner before the theater. It was not crowded when we first arrived, but you could tell that it was a popular spot as the evening went on.

We arrived early but we were still seated promptly. Our server, Giovanni (Geo) was very attentive and worked hard to fill our needs. He gave recommendations on meal choices, suggested wine parings and was overall very helpful. The food portions are generous so come hungry! Meal was hot and served promptly. Servers worked as a team helping each other out which makes floor run more efficiently. Will return.

The food was mediocre. We ordered off the theater menu - my date's beef au jus sandwich was stringy and tough and my fish was bland. Maybe the pasta dishes are better? Our server was pleasant and attentive.

We had a lovely dinner. The food was good, service was excellent. It's a comfy restaurant. Nice place to eat, talk and relax. The only thing I didn't like was their bread.

Great spot for a nice meal before a show... atmosphere is a little weird in the lobby of a large building, but is ok. Service was quick and efficient.

Guests were in from out of town. They ordered penne pasta which was delicious. I ordered the pork chop which was only fair and the potatoes were not hot. I would not order it again. When it came time to pay the bill, 2 of us paid cash; the other 2 by credit card. All of us left a nice tip, but the waiter thought we were $20 short. He was probably new but his manager was not helpful either. We explained the finances on paper; who paid what, the amount; the taxes; the tip, etc. He still didn't get it so we left for the theater. Management needs to do a better job.

I enjoy being at the Rosebud for an evening. I called the manager over to tell him what a nice
atmosphere the restaurant has and how welcoming. I always feel like family when I'm there. They are very attentive.

Food was so-so. My lasagna was too salty. Service was quick and attentive enough for lunchtime dining. Overall is adequate but nothing special.

Great Service. We were 1/2 hour late due to traffic. We were seated promptly and the waiter asked if we were seeing a play. He asked us where the play was and what time we wanted to be out of the Resturant. We were out in n plenty of time. Food was excellent and plentiful for the price.

I ordered one of the specials of the day - blackened shrimp salad. It was a nice size salad, but I was expecting more than three shrimp to be on my plate. Overall the experience was great. The food was great, our server was excellent - He wasn't bothersome but he also didn't ignore us.
