Rozafa is a great Mediterranean bistro... food is great... wait staff is pleasant and efficient.

My only negative comment is on the price of Josh Cellars Cabernet wine. We were charged $10 for a glass and $40 for a bottle. When checking their website the glass was $8 and the bottle was $25. When I asked the owner about the discrepancy he stated that it wasn’t his website. He doesn’t list his wines. But interestingly enough everything else on this “pseudo “ website was exactly the menu and prices.
Truly don’t find the owner customer friendly if you have a question.

Great spot. Kind of Undiscovered. Price fixe on Valentines Day was a good value. Food, as always, was great. Nice, moderately priced wine list (they also do a great breakfast, which is how I discovered this spot.

Our server, Kat, was great. It was very crowded and the service was a little slow. No reflection on Kat at all.

Thanks

Waitress was awesome. It is a small restaurant so noise will depend on the people inside but the atmosphere was great. Food was very good. Will go back.

My sisters and I visited on an airbnb recommendation and we were blown away. The food tasted great and arrived promptly. The portions were generous but did not leave us feeling overly full. The wine was also poured generously. In addition to all of this, our waitress, Kat, was personable, accommodating, and really made the entire dining experience.

Haddock Rockefeller was a little dry and not enough Rockefeller! Pizza not enough sauce. But everything else was excellent. Those who had scallops with risotto were impressed! Bread and hummus delish. Coffee was outstanding. And our server Brianna was lovely.

Dined here on a Tuesday evening 5:30pm. It was very quiet and comfortable sitting outside under the canopy with string lights. Not many there at that time which was nice. Celebrated our 1st anniversary and the hostess/waitress was nice to serve us sparkling Rose wine. We ordered an excellent bottle of red Spanish wine. Overall the food was very good, however it was a bit too salty for my taste. We had the bruschetta app, steak and salmon. All good, very good quality but too salty. I would not hesitate to go back, but I would let them know to go easy on that. The tiramisu was homemade and a dessert favorite, although this was quite flavorless and nothing special. I wanted so much to like it but it didn't do it for me. But, it was a special evening, great friendly service and comfortable atmosphere outside. I also liked the start with bread and homemade humus & olive oil. Very tasty. I recommend Rozafa definitely. Thanks Rozafa for making our evening a memorable one!

Rosafa had a really cool vibe. Our server was extremely attentive and had a wonderful personality. The sangria we tried was delicious, and the bolognese was out of this world. My only complaint was that we ordered the Bruschetta as an app and it was way overly salted, it was almost inedible. The rest of the food was delicious so it may have just been a one-off mistake. We would definitely go back.

Rozafa is somewhat of a hidden gem. We went for dinner and one of our party had a special request for a variation of a menu item. The restaurant was glad to help. Food is mostly, if not all, cooked to order. Waitress was friendly and attentive but not overbearing. All were pleased with their dinners. Have dined here in the past and will continue to do so in the future. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends and family.

The place had an odor of an old wet mop, and it was cold in there. The appetizer was cold. The pizza was terrible.

Amazing food and even better service. Our server was attentive without being pushy. She went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. We shared the bruschetta and charcuterie to start both were fantastic. For entrees we had the steak tips, the stuffed fish, bolognese and linguini with clams. Perfect portions, all delicious especially the steak tips. It’s quiet and not too busy which was nice but i hope more people discover this gem!

This was my second time at Rozafa’s! It is such a sweet little gem of a restaurant. So glad I found it. The food, service and ambiance are great. I have plans with a friend to go again, next week. Third time in three weeks! That, speaks to how great a restaurant it is.

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised at the delicious food we had at Rozafa’s Bistro. The French Onion Soup was one the best we have ever had. To my husband’s delight it was piping hot. His stuffed pork chop was excellent. I love lamb chops and they were also delicious and cooked just right. There were four of them. We did not have room for dessert.

The service was very good. We definitely will return to this neighborhood restaurant.

Friday night date with the wife. The place looked like a ghost town. Service was slow - I ordered the chestnut ravioli $20 special. They were smothered in a tasteless goo cream sauce, the filling - empty, the pasta was spongy all together Horrid. The wife got eggplant tart app as a meal. It was cold and very acidic. They claim to be a scratch kitchen - I can tell you as a chef myself, both meals were made prior and simply reheated. The waitress while always around was distracted and missed obvious things like empty water glasses. The owner came out on the floor to talk to one person who he obviously knew but said absolutely nothing to any other tables. The place was dead, make the rounds and ask how everyone is doing that’s 101 in my book. I understand why there were only a handful of table in the middle of what should be a Friday rush.

Too many excellent establishments out there. I’ll never consider this place again.

We had not been to Rozafa in a couple of years. We sat at the bar Saturday night. We were so happy to see that they now have a full liquor license and they changed their menu. It was excellent. And the prices were very reasonable- a dozen oysters for $22! AND they take reservations!

We were seated in a corner - very small table. There were other tables available the whole time we were there - no one used them. Also, the table was very wobbly! They put a wedge under it - a little improvement! They could have moved us! I should have said something! Oh well! Live and learn!
