This is possibly the most beautiful restaurant in Lexington. The downtown setting, with great views of Courthouse Plaza, is about as good as you'll find. But the restaurant is a major disappointment. The food, although artistically and beautifully presented, is served in tiny portions that are hardly worth the very steep prices. The servers are unfriendly and slow, snooty even. A good way to sample the beauty of the place is to stop by the lovely bar for a drink. But until the place gets its act together on food and service, you might want to pass on the meal.

I decided to check this place out after reading both good and just okay reviews. Met a friend here for dinner and had such a great dinner. Atmosphere and interiors are beautiful. Cocktails were great. Oyster small plate was delicious and the main was wonderful. My friend had the duck and said it was excellent. My red snapper was perfect and well thought out. I will definitely go back.

Visually, Rosetta is fabulous. It's crisp white interior is a welcome change from Lexington's Iak bars and red wells. The cocktails are unique and delish and my service, both times that I visited was amicable, but that's about as far as I can go with praise. The menu sounds fantastic on paper, but it just doesn't seem to know how to execute. Around our table of 10, we had four beef dishes that were over done and tasteless and a pasta that was as exceptional as something I would whip up at home. I really wanted to like this place and unless you want a yummy cocktail, I say keep moving.
