Busy place with good food.

We had both dinner and breakfast here. Both were very good. Attentive staff, good choices, lots of food and doors open to the street. Desserts were luscious and huge.

When staying in Monterey on a Saturday night, we looked online for a restaurant that served cake after 8 pm and found Rosine's. It is located on arguably the busiest block or two in town. We found a parking structure about a block away and thereafter waited about 20 minutes for a table for six. The main room was filled... More

Comfort food with local appeal. When we visit Monterey we try to avoid the tourist traps and the over the top eateries and Rosine's fits right in. Their minestrone soup is great and filling enough to be your entree. I also tried the sand dabs in a caper sauce - very fresh and very tasty. Service was good and the... More

Great Breakfast! A wonderous glass display case filled with grand dazzling cakes greets you as you step into the multilevel large, clean room. Large menu offers many choices but we settled on an omelette, eggs Benedict Turkey & Avacado, served with really good cottage fries & applewood smoked crisp bacon. My Benedict was one of the best I've enjoyed! We... More

This place has the best food. This is the second time I have been here and both times now great service.The restaurant is very busy. I had a wonderful sandwich and my daughter had a good sandwich. Of course we had to share a huge piece of their amazing cake.

We ate here a few times during our visit. The service was spotty, sometimes good. sometimes AWFUL. One waitress took our order, brought our food, and never returned until she brought our check. My wife, @ 70 years old, had to get up and refill our iced teas and water. WHAT is that ABOUT?? The portions were large, but the... More

This restaurant had been recommended to us as a good place to eat near the Monterey convention center. A pleasant surprise in all catagories. We were so happy we dropped in again two days later. They primarily serve comfort food but do offer some items for other tastes. The first day I had the Philly cheesesteak sandwich and I have... More

A terrific place to have a hearty and delicious breakfast. Eggs made to order (I like my scrambled eggs soft) and huge servings (including a massive plate of French toast). Efficient service in a lively atmosphere.

Portions were very big. Lasagne was nice and tasty. Other pasta dish was heavy. Did not hear specials until we had ordered and overheard them being told to a nearby table. This was a pity.
