Consistent Food at a slight premium

We are always pleased with the food here at Rosemary's. What we find is the service seems to come and go without the usual staff members. The staff turnover seems a bit high for a neighborhood place. The food is Mediterranean in nature (Greek, Italian, etc) and full of flavor. Happy Hour prices are... read more

We recently moved near the shopping area that houses Rosemary's Thyme and it is by far one of the best restaurants we have visited in sometime! We each had something different and we thoroughly enjoyed checking each others dishes out. We then somehow managed sharing a little dessert which I also high recommend! Oh and one more thing. The service... More

The food and service are always good and the space has good energy. The Crawfish Saffron and Seafood Ravioli are terrific.

The food and service here is excellent. We had 6 different small dishes and they were are very good. The wine list is small but the wines offered are great and reasonably priced especially if you go during happy hour.

We went here on a family outing and were very happy with the food. We ordered a couple of pizzas (which is enough for 2-3 people to split) and also some of their rollas (which is kind of like a burrito with a different form of bread for the tortilla). All of the food was very good and the waiter... More

We went for Sunday lunch with our three kids. Food: A, Menu: A, Overall Service: B. Extensive menu, good choices for adults and children. Reserved our table through Open Table. Once we had a server assigned to our table, she was very good.

We are so lucky to have this restaurant close by because it is one of the few good restaurants in Centreville. The bread is made fresh and is irresistible! When they offer it we enjoy the Doner Kabob special.

A little gem of a neighborhood plaza restaurant. We went in for a Sunday evening dinner. There was plenty of staff on duty. The shrimp scampi and pasta was a very good dinner as was the beef rolla. The rolla was akin to a gyro with two exceptions, much thinner bread used than some places that just pile it on... More

This is a very nice place for groups to meet for luncheons or families to go for brunch. The menu is amazing and offers so much from which to choose. My daughter and I went in for lunch this week to an almost empty restaurant save two people sitting outside at the tables provided. We were seated for almost 15... More
