The Husband and I had to try this place after seeing the Triple D episode--happy to say it did NOT disappoint! The Husband had the lasagna, I had the pasta with meat sauce. The minestrone and chowder starters were fantastic. We were only sorry that we didn't save room for the beautiful desserts! Service was good, nice atmosphere---just be prepared... More

Rosine's is where the locals go to eat. Reasonably priced and centrally located on Alvarado Street Their desserts are second to none. You can even have a sampler of 4 different deserts if have a sweet tooth and a large appetite.....large portions.

My husband and I had to try the recommended house lasagna tried by Guy Fieri. We started with a delightful salad and the lobster bisque. Nothing but great food and service.

We stopped here by chance during an annual trip several years ago, looking for a nice, "non-corporate" place to eat in Monterey and we keep coming back every year. Rosine's is a local favorite of ours for the great food and friendly service at a fair price. The menu is fairly standard fare - don't expect anything exotic but what... More

Whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner, Rosine's is a great place to eat. If you like Minestrone soup, this is the place for you! One of the best soups I have had. Bring your appetite because you get soup or salad and then your entrée and they do not skip on the portions. They have a wide variety of... More

Very nice breakfast at a very respectable price. The food and drink did take quite some time to come out as they were busy. Not my favourite place to grab a bite to eat along the street but it's not far behind!

We ended up taking food back to the hotel one night and ordered to go from Rosine's. The food was fabulous, they gave us everything we needed to enjoy our dinner in our room and the dessert selection is over the top! Would definitely go back.
