Good food, good portions at a fair price

We were in downtown Monterey recently and popped into rosiness for a weekday lunch. Luckily we were there just before noon, because 10 mins after we were seated the place was full w people waiting. Rosine's is a large open space and can get a bit noisy. We were seated by the front window which... read more

We stopped in for an early mone morning breakfast and were Cheerfully greeted and shown to a comfortable booth. The coffee was ok but not great. The veggie Benedict was good the veggie omelete was fresh and cheesy.

My husband had the lasagne and it's something he always likes to try and compare. He ranked it #2 on his best list. I ordered the black and blue steak. It had wonderful flavor and the vegetables that came with it were cooked perfectly. So, the wine list is disappointing but bring your own bottle. The desserts though are off... More

Rosine's is a downtown fixture. In an area with plenty of high end restaurants it is nice to know there is a place to go to get good food at a reasonable price. Very friendly to all.

I kept asking my husband how we missed this restaurant during our numerous visits to Monterey. Someone recommended this place to us and we're glad we had lunch here. They were still serving breakfast so I had a ground beef/spinach/mushroom scramble. My husband had a turkey club sandwich. Both were very good. Our server was very sweet. What excited me... More

For me this is an above average coffee shop, where the food is served quickly in large servings. Very friendly service.

Had an omelette, said cheese on menu, tasted like velvetta. Ingredients not good quality, coffee not good, service spotty. Stay away for breakfast!

This place is well known with the locals, and for good reason. Everything here is wonderful - breakfast, lunch, dinner, and especially desert.

We ate here while visiting Monterey. The entrees are plentiful & very reasonably priced. The food is fresh & delicious. We couldn't resist ordering desert. The cake slices are HUGE! Kyla was our server & she was very nice as well as attentive.

If you decide to take the chicken parmesan, just remember to share it with your entire family. The portions are HUGE! (and the food did taste good as well, u get a salad to your main course.) Our waiter thought we waited for our salads for too long so when we left the restaurant she brought us two chocolate chip... More
