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

My partner ate the lasagna and I took the BBQ ribs (half rack). I received some vegetables and a potatoe with that. Normally with a main plate/entree we should have received the choice of soup or salad included in the price, but we did not. A variety on the menu, nice diner.

Everything about this place was totally fantastic. The wine of the day was beautiful, the food was just amazing, all freshly cooked and served by fantastic staff. The desserts were what really drew us in though - cakes of every description and fruit pies. We had a slice of Oreo cake and it was enough to feed a family for... More

We ate here twice in a two day time frame. We split a burger and fries so we could split a piece of peanut butter pie and it was the best pie I have ever had. It was so rich and creamy and different than any other recipe I have ever had. We went back the following day and we... More

Wonderful fresh, homemade daily, cakes and pies. Great pasta. Desserts to die for, huge portion, 3 or 4 could share.

As a Brit it amazes me at some of the reviews for businesses on this site. Some people really do think they are food critics and not just saying whether they had a good or negative experience that owners can work from... We arrived at Rosine's on a very busy Tuesday night due to the farmers market in town. About... More

My omelette was great, really big, I couldn't finish it. The kids had pancakes and loved them. Hubby had a huge salad. Cute place. The service was great.
