We had been to The Rosemary but not to Rosemary and Thyme. We choose it for a couples dinner before the theatre. The building is lovely and the decor upscale. The wine list was good and I especially liked the Pinot Grigio from Italy that I chose. I had the Roasted Cauliflower vegetarian meal which was a generous portion with impressive variety. Two companions raved about the Brisket. Portions were definitely ample. Service was prompt and attentive.

We were a large group of over 22 in the private room of the dinner section of the Rosemary, namely the Rosemary and Thyme and everyone who attended had a fantastic time. Jessica greeted us at the door with her smiling face and directed us to the private sanctuary where Liam and Chris attended to our every culinary and drinking need. delicious food, great service and smiles all-around for the first outing of our "Romeo" group. The room was private and secluded. From Thomawk Chops to Ribs and Grits with George's special sauce, or fresh fish of the day, everyone enjoyed their dinner. Well done all at this landmark restaurant in the heart of Sarasota! We are already booking a group for later in the season.

The bathroom needs a total refresh. Seemed like a new paint job is way past due. Food was not as good as I've had previously. We stop here on our way through Sarasota once or twice a year. It had always been greatly anticipated. I am going to look for somewhere new to try next time.

We were a group of 24 neighbors last night. In spite of the size of our group the level and timeliness of service was flawless. The wait staff took the time to explain specials and take several complicated drink orders. Everyone seemed to be very happy with their meals. I had escargot and the duck entree. Both were excellent. This was my first time dining here and will certainly be back soon.

We have been to the old “Rosemary” several times for dinner. We have always loved it and had extraordinary meals there. This was our first time trying the new expanded location named Rosemary and Thyme. Two of us had grouper with risotto, one had short rib and mashed potatoes, and one of us chose a lighter meal- escargot and asparagus salad. Nothing was outstanding; in fact it was really just average especially for the price. Won’t be going back. So disappointed.
