The bread was not fresh at all. The food was over seasoned. We did not enjoy our dinner at all. Service was good and pleasant.

Walk up to the restaurant and there is a long line--I take that as a good sign. It turned out to be a good sign indeed. We just came for the desserts and ordered the Chocolate Walnut slice of cake , and their Snicker Pie. Both were delicious. I preferred the Chocolate Walnut, just because the Snicker Pie was a...

We visited Monterey on a business trip, but connected up with friends for dinner-- at their suggestion, we went to Rosine's. What a great choice. We walked in and were greeted by a huge case of desserts-- the temptation was to do our favorite "eat dessert first" but we resisted and had dinner. We started with caesar salad, , then... More

This was recommended by our hotel. It was the BEST breakfast EVER! I had the Egg Puff and my hubby had the Southwest eggs benedict. BY FAR THE TASTIEST EVER!. Our son, who is a picky eater had the pancakes and loved them! You will not be sorry you ate here!

Serivce was a 4 on a 10 scale. We were there for breakfast and there before it opened. We were a large party of 10 but it took FOREVER to get our food. Other people had eaten and left before we got served. I shared (the portions are LARGE) an omlette that was good. The potatoes were tasty. The coffee... More

My husband found Rosine's through Trip Advisors. It was a great way to spend our first morning in Monterey. We highly recommend it.

My husband wanted the prime rib, but when we came in the afternoon, our waitress, Jackie, said it wouldn't be served until after 4:00. I'd already ordered a pepsi, so she told us to relax, enjoy my drink, and brought us each a cup of soup to hold us until dinner. We were amazed, when she said the drink and... More

There's a reason this restaurant is consistently voted best in Monterey. For that reason and the staff and food, you just might have to wait in line to get seated. The kitchen is very consistent with their offerings. You get a very generous helping of whatever you order. I had a Ham steak and eggs for breakfast. The ham was... More

Portions were huge, cakes looked amazing and prices were more than reasonable. BLT and roast beef sandwich were delicious.
