“Nice place for tourists & locals...”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

As a local, I like going to this restaurant on a occasion. Their biggest attaction is their desserts featured at the entrance. Really nicely done and delicious! The rest of the menu is ok with standard fare. They serve breakfast, lunch & dinner which is plus and a nice place to have a quick bite. My old "stand by" is the Fiesta Salad (which really is a Tostada Salad) and is a huge portion!

“Always a good experience”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Have been stopping here almost annually for 15 years and always look forward to returning.
This year there was a farmers market down town with food stalls. Rosine's was having a market special with 4 choices including soup or salad and your choice of desert for $14.99. I have never seen desert servingsanywhere the size they serve here. No comercial stuff, all wild homemade cakes, etc. If you are in the area and like sweets give yourself a treat and stop here for some calories. I would estimate a serving to be 4x the average.
The wife and I each got a steak marsala. The steak was about 8-10 oz with a marsale/mushroom glaze with a large baked potato and generous portion of carrots, zucchini and a large tossed salads. All was very good. The humongus deserts were taken to go.
The service could have been better. Every one was spot on except the primary server admitted to being "not with it".

“Local's hang out”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

The food here is tasty and fresh. The portions are generous.A large parking garage one street over. Always space there.Never a problem if we call ahead for a large group.This place is usually packed w/locals and lucky tourists who know about it. Their desserts are sinfully good and a generous size. One piece of cake is plenty for 2 or even 3 people.

“Great buffalo wings”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Rosines is a definite stop anytime I am in or around the Monterey area. This visit was no different than past visits in that the food was great. We did have an order of the buffalo wings and I must say they were absolutely delicious. Cant wait to return!

“Great family restaurant”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Food is great and a great price. Casual and family friendly. Pasta is great, simple but fresh salad
And homemade desserts to die for. German chocolate is my favorite. We have eaten here for years and everything has maintained year after year.
