The first time I ate here several years back, I liked the food so much that I went back again. Over the the last several visits, I realized something had changed., The food didn't feel the same. I am told that some of the meat is halal and that was a reason I would bring my friends who eat halal... More

I knew this restaurant had a wonderful reputation but in a shopping center off the beaten track. Went Sunday for the brunch with 3 others. Best brunch ever. Why would you go to a chain restaurant! We all make that mistake. Servers Cindy and Van were the ultimate in attentiveness and kindness. Best French toast and great omelettes. Bloody Mary... More

There were five of us and we all had something different and we each had a very pleasant experience. The "mediterranean pide" was superb. The scampi was a delight. The chicken alfredo and pizza were very good. The salmon was excellent. All very, very good. The service was attentive and appropriate at all times. This was a noisy, strip mall... More

We hadn't dined here in over a year, and we both thought it has changed for the worse. Both of our entrees were prepared very differently from the last time we ate dinner here. The Adana Kebab was very dry. But we were hungry and it was late so we ate it without complaining. But I don't remember anyone asking... More

Decent neighborhood place but I wouldn't drive from my neighborhood just to go there. Menu overburdening, salads huge, pizza passable, one big room inside, bathrooms a little rough, front patio nice but it gets full sun. Slow service and I hate being called honey, sweetie and the like.

We had not been to this restaurant for a while, but passed in recently and decided to get together with some friends there the following weekend. The Bistro is small and a good place for a small, intimate dinner. We all shared an appetizer, theTrio Meze, and it was great. Our friends had the eggplant and spinach pastas while my... More

We have been going to Rosemary's since they first opened In Clifton. Regardless of day of week or time of day the staff are consistently pleasant and efficient. Usually they restaurant is over half full and clearly there are regulars, like us, who bring local friends and out of town guests to eat here. And we always have a request... More

Visited the restaurant with my wife and expected more from this restaurant, but maybe it was a odd day. Nothing particular with the food or service but there seems to be a lot of guests at other times
