This used to be one of my favorite spots at Rosemary. They food has improved recently, but the service is slow and they made me feel like I was doing them a favor.

They have a great outdoor space that allows kids to play and move around, but I sometimes felt like they forgot we were there.

They are not always opened as posted, but they do have a retail market with snacks and a really great wine selection.

Try it out and maybe it will be back to how it used to be.

Great service, cool atmosphere, and then there's the food!! Super choice for a pleasantly varied menu. They've got it all...from the Charcuterie Board with Sopressata, Coppa, and Prosciutto to kid-friendly corn dogs! The Bistro 104 burger is a "can't miss," and the tempura shrimp (with their über unique batter!) is a "must try" too. Service was par excellence...we had one of the most sincere and friendly waitresses I've met. She even brought us some of their house-made marinated olives in a to-go container since we raved about them so! Don't miss this little gem!!

Friday night wine tastings are wonderful. Great place for lunch and people watching. Wish they were open on Mondays.

To go and al fresco dining menu, a few high end pick up market items, but don't mistake this for a place you might pick up a light load of groceries, it's more of a cafe than a market, okay for a quick bite, pricey as expected for the neighborhood.

We went in to have a look, decided to buy a bottle of wine to take back to our hotel. We werent sure if we had a cork screw and wind glasses. the owner, Chris. overheard us and jumped right in, uncorked bottle, loaned us glasses, and even sliced up the cheese that we purchased. Now that is service!!!
