Our first dining experience here was wonderful! Server Rui, who has a great personality, immediately welcomed us wishing us Happy Anniversary. The in-house-made Sangria with Brandy and fresh fruit and the just-from-the-oven warm bread with guava-brown sugar-cinnamon butter was tasty! My sweetheart's Roast Pork dinner was outstanding as was my Rice with Chicken entree! Tres Leches for dessert was yummy. Complimentary end-of-the meal Spanish Champagne for our anniversary was a pleasant surprise!

Our server Matthew was fabulous! He was very patient with our questions about everything we ordered. The entire staff was prompt in delivering food at just the right time. I highly recommend the Burrata Garlic Bread, Bao Bun Carnitas, and Peri Peri Chicken. Will definitely be on our list for future visits.

About the restaurant
Comfortable casual and drenched in Southern charm, the Rose Villa combines its polished easygoing atmosphere with Southern cuisine, classic craft cocktails and an ample selection of Wines. Enjoy Chef Sylvia Kerry Herrera's signature Southern Fried Chicken or her award winning Shrimp and Grits. Each guest that walks through our doors is sure to have a story to tell. Built in in late 1800's Rose Villa was established as a boutique hotel and bed and breakfast in 1901.
The Gazebo is open for cocktails, lunch and dinner during the temperate months. With a relaxing fountain and abundant florals, the Gazebo and back porch seating is a great place to enjoy the Rose Villa. Dogs Welcome!
Upstairs is the Southern Speakeasy, "Whiskey at the Rose" and is making quite a stir among Bourbon aficionados with an array of high end Bourbons. Chef Sylvia has also gotten in on the action offering small plate appetizers and food tastings designed around whiskey and Bourbon during special events.

Salmon was very good. Salads were tasty but room temperature. Mahi was a little dry but pretty good. Scallops and mushrooms were very good. Baked potato was excellent. Cocktails were very good. It was a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. The server was pleasant and knowledgable. We will definitely go again.
