“Great food, great location, great price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

We have gone back many times to this small restaurant on Union Street. The food has always been excellent, as has the service. The prices are, we believe, quite reasonable, considering the location, ambience, service & food quality. We will be going back there many more times.

“Friendly and welcoming”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

My wife and I stayed in San Francisco in June for a few days at the start of our road-trip and went to Rose's twice in that time - mainly because it was less than a block from where we were staying and the first visit was after 23 hours of travelling from the UK!

The service was excellent and the food pretty good although we thought the menu a bit limited. If you're in the area it's worth dropping in and the locals seem to like it but with such choice in SF there are probably better options.

“A must for Union Street visitors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Across the road from our hotel it was a lovely place to indulge over dinner. The menu covers a broad range of tastes and the food and wine didn't disappoint. It's a relaxing and friendly spot that you can see is treasured by locals.

“Had a superb lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

What a great find - we had a superb lunch & the panacotta was out of this world! It was busy but a table was quickly found for us. Just loved the decor (Chihuly style glass lamps) & the upmarket but friendly atmosphere. As noted by another reviewer the fact that there is only the one unisex restroom can lead to a queue!
