“Delicious food, amateur service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

I have eaten twice at Topping Rose. The first time was shortly after it opened; the second time was this morning, for brunch. My comments concern this morning.

Let me start with the negatives: The service this morning was a bit of a disaster. No one really seemed to know what he or she was doing. When we arrived, there were a number of tables that had dirty dishes on them. We had to ask several people before we found someone who would show us to a table. We then sat for quite a while before we were offered water or menus, and even then, we had to request them. I had to ask three times before I got my coffee, and the coffee and water were refilled only when we asked. We had to wait quite a long time for our food, and, when it arrived, one item we ordered was missing, and one of our three entrees was cold. All around us, servers repeatedly served food to the wrong table. (And all this was despite the restaurant's being only half full.)

Now the positives: the food and coffee, when they arrived, were hot and excellent. The service was quite friendly, if unpolished for a restaurant at this price point.

I would come back, but I would hope fervently that the service is improved when I do.

“Delightful dinner, fabulous wine list and discreet, knowledgeable staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

From the Owl multimedia installation at the Bar to the stand of flowers on a central round table that Americans do so well- the entire evening was just right. Food was delicious, interesting and well balanced so you get up from the table with all senses sated but not over indulged. Excellent.

“Amazing Food, Amazing Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

I have to say that the food and environment of the Topping Rose House was beyond exceptional! I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a meal they will not forget. The staff was so pleasent and management went above and beyond to make sure everyone was enjoying their dinner. The aged striploin left my mouth watering even after I was done.

“One of the best meals I ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

I have to say Topping Rose House was one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. The food was amazing and the staff was even better. I loved the whole atmosphere and the fact that the manager came around to see how our visit was, was very warming. I would recommend Topping Rose House to anyone who is looking for a great place to visit and I will most definitely be returning!
