They pack them in here. Must be the large portions. I do recommend the stacked eggplant salad that includes arugula, mozzarella, tomatoes and a basalmic drizzle. The eggplant is sliced thin and fried to perfection.

My daughter and I ate here on Mother's Day for brunch. She ordered an omelet and I ordered the White Chocolate Raspberry French Toast. We shared both and it was all delicious. We will very likely eat here again before we leave.

It was right by our hotel and we needed to feed the kids - solid restaurant not terribly expensive. Waiter was very pleasant and helpful and service was efficient. An easy meal but not something special

Hadn't been to Rosebud in a long while and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. I had some pasta rags with tomato/vodka sauce recommended by our server which was very good and seemed to be homemade. Atmosphere has always been one of a traditional neighbor place which I love. All around, great place to stop before a... More

This was a real treat. The eggplant salad was excellent as were the sausage and peppers. We split one order of parpradelle with bolanesse sauce between 4 of us and it was plenty. That gives you an idea of the size of the portions. We also split the Chilean sea bass sautéed with tomatoes olives and garlic. Really excellent. The... More

I've always wanted to try Rosebuds each time we stay in downtown Chicago, and today we finally did. Atmosphere, nice. Service, very good. The warm freshly baked bread w/olive oil was a great start. And the menu prices weren't too bad. All good so far. Then the meals came. I ordered spaghetti with meat ball and my wife had the... More
