“Just Okay”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

Members of our family have visited this restaurant several times now--each time hoping for a better experience. However, each time there have been problems with service, serving size and, more importantly, disappointing flavors. If you are looking for neighborhood ambiance and reasonable prices, this is a good option, but don't go looking for good value.

“Great lunch in a good location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

Stopped in here for a lunch with two friends. We each had a delicious lunch, the sandwiches and salads were fresh and well balanced. It's a small cafe--think quaint, not crowded--with very friendly service and a happy atmosphere.

“Nice place for a light meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

We frequently eat here in Tacoma. The sandwiches and salads are very good. And their daily soup selection is often wonderful. They also have a lovely wine selection.

“Our Favorite Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We discovered the Rosewood a few years ago and make frequent treks to this quaint little cafe. The food quality is always good and the service is (almost always) fantastic. It's a friendly place with a modest menu (mostly sandwiches and salads), affordable prices, and tasty desserts. It's small so you might have to wait a few minutes for a table - especially for parties of four or more. The menu hasn't changed much - which is both a strength and a weakness - but they do have daily soup, entree, and dessert specials which provide a little more variety from their standard menu.

“Lovely place to eat lunch with good friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

A great neighborhood place, with excellent service and food. In a quiet location, surrounded by beautiful homes just east of the Proctor District, it's a pleasant place to enjoy a relaxing lunch or dinner.

The sandwiches are always interesting, and the caesar salad with salmon is excellent. Large piece of fish, and cooked to a moist medium rare to preserve the flavor. There's also a good wine and beer list, and a very good selection of wines by the bottle that you can buy at retail prices and take home with you.

Eating outside on nice days is also great.
