We recently visited rosines. Everything was great. I would recommend the chicken fettuccine, the lasagna and the pasta marinara. The food was great and reasonably priced with large portions. The restaurant was full but they accommodated us with minimal wait times and we had no reservations. The service was also really good. It took no time to get our food... More

Wonderful spot for a hearty breakfast in Monterey. The tables by the front windows are cool! And the food was fantastic. Their bakery items are huge!

We were excited to go to a restaurant that was just featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Rosine's did not disappoint. Portions were huge and delicious. The one pie slice we ordered was more than enough to feed our family of 4! Would definitely recommend!

Sometimes, one negative experience often leads to a positive one. Such was the case at Rosine's Restaurant in downtown Monterey this week. Monterey has become a frequent overnight getaway for the past few years, during which time I have dined at many fine restaurants and breakfast houses. This time around, my companion and I decided to try something new and... More

This restaurant was a couple blocks from our hotel. We had breakfast here our first morning, and liked it so much, we returned the second morning. Rosine herself let us in as they opened. French toast, omelets, muffins, etc all delicious, and the pastry case at the front of the restaurant looked very tempting.

This is our second time and it was even better than the first time. We ordered the spinach salad and the club sandwich. First of all, the servings were very generous. We probably could have split the salad to serve us both. The sandwich was so tasty with fresh avocado. My husband commented how they didn't slather all kinds of... More

The first time I tried Rosine's I was very impressed with the quality, selection, and delicious deserts. Decided to take kids over the July 4th holiday and was so disappointed. The food was bland, lukewarm and my wings were undercooked. The only upside is that the deserts are still fabulous - ordered carrot cake to go and it did delicious.... More

We ate at Rosine's for dinner. We were seated promptly and our drink orders taken almost immediately. They bring bread to the table. My companion ordered fettucine alfredo with chicken and I had a meatball sandwich. Her pasta dish came with minestrone soup and mine came with a salad. The soup was good, with a strong beef taste. The salad... More

I was told to visit this restaurant because it was suppose to be so good. When I was in Monterey, I decided to try it out. It was a great recommendation. The food was delicious and in large portions. If you have a sweet tooth, their special made cakes and pies are so good and the portions are enormous. When... More

My friends and I were in Monterey CA last week and we had breakfast at Rosine's Restaurant. Excellent both times....generous portions and the chef adapted his cooking to my lactose intolerance. Met Rosine on the second day and she is adorable. Recommend it for breakfast or lunch....May take my husband to Monterey for our 35th anniversary and take him here... More
