We were a party of 28 gathered together from different areas of Ontario, to celebrate a 90th birthday. We had a private dining area which housed us comfortably and we enjoyed refreshments and a wonderful meal of prime rib that we had asked for prior to arrival. Some of the attendees preferred other dishes which were equally as good. Thanks... More

Don't order the chicken Caesar salad. The salad is mediocre and the chicken breast served beside it is plain and dry. It took much too long for every course to be served. This restaurant continues to disappoint.

Of course the filet mignon. The double stuffed potato. The fresh hot veggies. The Campoletti vino. The dessert. Thank you Danny.

We were a party of seven and were seated in their private dining room, which was nice. It had a fake fireplace at one end. When our selected wine was out of stock we chose another slightly more expensive and they matched the price upon request. My main "beef" was that our steals were significantly overcooked. My medium rare came... More

We celebrated a friend's birthday by inviting him to his favorite restaurant. I'm not sure why they call it a Chophouse. The name doesn't really reflect the Rose Bowl's introduction to fine dining. Inside is elegant and well presented. There's an upscale bar offering a host of smart cocktails and snacks. We reserved in advance to secure a quiet booth... More

Recently joined a large group at the Rose Bowl for a birthday celebration. I was really pleased with the ambience - very up-scale. Our service was without flaws, and the food - omg - I had the Prime Rib and it was perfect. The accompanying vegetables were perfectly steamed and presented. The champagne was perfect. I highly recommend this restaurant... More

I was a regular for years, and recently had a chance to stop in for dinner, after a long absence. Happy to report that the Rose Bowl is still an excellent place for a good steak.i had the 9 ounce tenderloin, cooked perfectly. Potato croquette as a side, and it was outstanding. Long known for their giant shrimp cocktail, it... More

We were invited by our good friends here and they're regulars. We were impressed by their friendliness. We were treated as if we're at home. Even the chef came to talk to us. The steaks are great. The calamaris are excellent. Well presented food. We didn't feel we're in the restaurant. Carol (not sure if that's her name) our server... More

We are regular clients. Always, always an excellent meal & service. The food is to die for and the service is top notch. This restaurant spoils you.

Delectable steak & frites for lunch; tender, juicy, delicious steak, perfect frites - presented well, vegetable accompaniment. Others in our group agreed their food was excellent. Small private room for parties of 12 or so. Lots of parking. Steak/frites was $20 but worth every nickel!! Would go back tomorrow if I lived closer!
