Showed up excited to try this spot out with my fiancé. We were quickly seated so that was nice! Yet it turned sour quickly.. drinks took forever to come out and when they did they were not only super watered down but crappy! The place was clearly understaffed and the manager was just screaming at his employees rather than helping. The burgers that we got were ok, gladly they didn’t mess those up. By all means we will not be returning here again. Thumbs down Rosies!

The fish tacos were very tasting and the sauce gave them some zing. The Rosie's Chopped Salad was refreshing too. We shared both items from the menu.

Very good food! Service was good, but not outstanding. Forgot a glass when a bottle of opened sparkling water was set down in front of my guest. Had to ask for that. Slow night, but not attentive.
Very noisy bar area but we were seated around the corner so we got some semblance of dining atmosphere. We've dined there before (Santana Row location) and it's always noisy. Assume it's the building acoustics. We like the Santa Cruz location better.

I like here for brunch. Foods are reasonable and good, better than dinner dishes.
But the person brings foods does not understand English, when we asked for the butter.

I’ve been in pubs from Seattle to London and the food here was very good. My wife & I shared appetizers, had drinks & desserts. Mini-burgers were a hit. Bread pudding was simple, which made it great. Great vibe

They didn’t have our reservation and had to squeeze 7 of us into a 5 top table. Service was very slow. Took 15 mins to bring us drinks and drink refills.
Food was ok, but not worth the cost.

The Open Table reservation said that we could pick an option of reduced price Irish Nachos or Happy Hour. We made a 6:00 reservation to take advantage of Happy Hour, but were told when seated that it only applied to the bar or the patio (a little too cold in December!). While the decor was festive in the bar, in the seated area the diners were all spread out and it just felt empty. The menu had a lot of different types of food and for the price it should have been fabulous and it wasn't. It was ok. Our server seemed to forget about us and it took a long time to get her to come back and run the credit card. I'm glad I tried Rose McCann's but I'll only go back for a drink in the bar.

Had a 25th Bday celebration brunch. Food was great. Our server, Juan was attentive. He made sure our water glasses were full and gave refills on my hot chocolate. We were allowed to bring a small cake. They provided plates and utensils and cutting knives for us to enjoy the cake. Music level in background was just the right level. The service was great! Food is always awesome. We choose Benedict corn beef, Benedict Salmon, Rosie's omelet, protein plate and Rosie's Irish Breakfast. All delicious!!

This the second time we have been to Rosie McCann’s. I didn’t like it either time. We had a 6:30 pm reservation, and I will acknowledge that it was the Santana Row Tree lighting tonight, so the crowds could have been unusually large. We had a reservation and were seated within 5 minutes of arriving. Then we sat for another 10 minutes with no one stopping by to give us even water or take our order or even say they would be right with us. I finally went up and asked who our server was. No one seemed to be assigned to us, it took another 10 minutes to get a server. She took our order and we waited about 30-40 minutes for our food to show up. ... The restaurant is loud and the food is over priced for the quality. Our waitress did the best she could, but it wasn’t enough to make up for everything bad . I wish I could like this place but I’m not sure I will ever get there. Also, in Ireland “Shepard’s pie” is made with lamb not beef. Cottage pie is made with beef. If you want to be Irish fix the menu.

Ordered apps before dinner. An hour passes and no apps. After a 3 hour dinner (which shouldn’t have been) and a messed up order, we walked frustrated and disappointed. The place is adorable! Sad that it was such a hot mess when we were there.

The service today was basically non- existent. The order was taken and that was the last we saw of the wait-staff

We did see three (3) staff people congregated at the bar and ignoring customers trying to get their attention

The hostess was the one that took care of us and even got the check

The food was very very slow arriving as well

A good thing - the batter on the fish and chips was lighter and not so heavy on the fish

Most horrible experience thus far. We were kinda talking up the dinner service at Rosie's in a recent review, but tonight's changes that. We had a reservation, was sat right away and given some water, but waited 15 minutes before anyone paid attention to us again. And someone finally did because we flagged somebody down. In those 15 minutes, we've seen a server walk by us and take care of two adjacent tables but not once ask us if we've been taken care of. When we were finally like, "um, hello?!" she was like, our table wasn't communicated to her by the host. Even so, she knows and can see we've been there and they're not busy and there aren't any other servers checking in on us. She then offered, without us asking, to have the manager speak to us. We waited another 10 minutes for the manager. Holy moly. The only efficient staff member was the person refilling our glasses of water. The manager finally came over, apologized, offered to take care of us, etc. etc. But at this point, we were just so aggravated that we just chose to leave. We already wasted so much time here and to think we had a reservation and just wanted to have a good, quick, quiet dinner. We walked to Yard House where we didn't have a Santana Row resident discount/had to pay full price for meals/drinks, and had no reservations/waited for a table, in exchange for good service. It will probably be awhile before we try Rosie's again for anything, which is so sad, because we love the other manager, Ben, who always takes care of us, along with a handful of other team members. When these people aren't around, the service at Rosie'sis just plain awful. Such a shame.

Meal was excellent. We got the fish and chips and California burger. The menu had a lot of options we were interested in. My only complaint is that our food came out right after our appetizer, I wish there was more space between the two courses. Andrea was our server, she was lovely.

We have avoided brunch at Rosie's for more than a couple of months now because of past bad experiences. Decided to give it another go again today as Rosie's is convenient - we live in the area and can walk to the restaurant. We actually love the dinner service at Rosie's; it's just brunch that's sub-par. It took awhile for our food to be served, and we only ordered pancakes, eggs, bacon, and a side of fruits. On top of this, we had to actually get up to look for our server to ask for our coffee and water to be refilled. This has been the "norm" for brunch even if the place isn't busy. It's a totally sad stark difference between brunch and dinner - if you ever wanna check out Rosie's for brunch, I guess order a lot of mimosas so you don't notice the bad service (or maybe they cater to you more if you order alcohol), or try nearby Maggiano's, or even Denny's.

When I found out they had draft Guinness, I had to order one. It was very smooth with a creamy head. Felt like I was back in Ireland. I have the lamb stew which was excellent. Can't wait to come back and try the fish and chips! Well worth a visit.

There was an issue with our reservation when we arrived. I had reserved through the app and someone called to confirm the reservation a couple days before. But when we arrived one of the bouncers insisted that they didn’t take reservations after 9pm (my reservation was for 9:30). It wasn’t a big deal since there was a table open anyway. We were basically seated right away. I was concerned about him saying they don’t take reservations after 9pm since there were time options listed on Open Table through 11pm when I booked. Not sure if the app is wrong or something.

It was a beautiful evening out on the patio. Live music across the street added to the vibe.
Our server was polite and the food was very good. My husband had the fish and chips and I am already looking forward to going back and ordering that for me! I had the chicken pasta and it was tasty. We will be back.

Went with friends for Happy Hour at 5:30pm on a Saturday night. Had Chicken Quesadillas, Irish Nachos and Bangers. All were excellent. Appetizers are half price for happy hour and drinks are significantly discounted. I thought the price was still a little high, but definitely cheaper than what we would have paid had it not been happy hour. We were able to sit outside which was also nice. I'd definitely go back, and recommend others go and give this place a try (especially for happy hour). Just don't expect it to be a super great bargain just because it's happy hour. We were a group of 3 people and we had a total of six drinks (2 per person), and 4 appetizers (2 quesadillas, 1 order of Nachos, and 1 order of the Bangers). Total cost of our bill INCLUDING tax and a 20% tip was $98.

We go to Santana Row frequently but had never dined here. Seems like a late night hot spot. We were in between lunch and dinner so chose salads. While decent, portions are very small for the price and mine came without a key ingredient, I later discovered. With so many other choices at SR, I doubt we will go here again. Even for 1,000 points, which was nice.

The service was wonderful. The waitress was fantastic. We were celebrating a friend’s birthday and the waitress brought out a small cheesecake with a candle. The manager was great. I didn’t know how to use a Groupon cash back deal. He help with that. The busboy helped us take a picture. We had a great time and the food was delicious. Bring your family and friends to celebrate any occasion.
