“Great restaurant in Monterey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2013

We were looking for a place to dine in Monterey within Alvarado St. and decided to give Rosine's a try. We loved it! The food was great, from the appetizers to the main courses. The portions were quite large and we found the prices very reasonable. The restaurant's setting is very nice and the service was excellent as well. Great option in Monterey!

“Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

Excellent setting, great seating, outstanding service, and most importantly, fabulous food! We had breakfast at Rosine's on the Fourth of July, waiting for the parade. We were seated next to an open door/window that gave us a front-seat view of the parade route. Service was prompt, courteous friendly and efficient. Our server was knowledgeable about specials and the general menu, and food was piping hot when it arrived a short time later. My Calamari Steak and Eggs was one of the best breakfasts I've ever had, highlighted by the large, lightly breaded and perfectly cooked calamari. Every time we go to Monterey, this is a must visit restaurant for breakfast for us!

“Rosine's Always Delivers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

I've written several reviews in Trip Advisor when traveling abroad on vacation, but never thought of writing a review for Rosine's because it's a home town restaurant. It's my favorite restaurant in Monterey and my review is long overdue. The staff, service, menu variety, specials, food taste and quality are outstanding. It's consistently very good food. Their cakes and pies are legendary, some still prepared by Rosine herself. They also have a very convenient and speedy to go service. Rosine's daughter Annette manages the restaurant now and continues the Family tradition of delicious home made food and good service.

“Great location, food, and people-watching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

Crispy chicken salad ended up being two meals for me. Great service and atmosphere. It doesn't get much better than Alvarado St. for taking in the Main Street action. Great for groups too. Rosine's is as good as it was 20 years ago.

“Love the cake but go somewhere else for lunch/dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

I love their cake but not the pasta! Only 5 or 6 to choose from and they are all without meat and expensive. I had the salad (it was okay) the buffalo wings (very tasty) but the pasta with meatball sucks! Only 1 meatball and they put a lot of sauce than pasta and it cost $10!

I usually come here just for the cake it is worth the penny!
