The food is great, with a variety of items at reasonable prices. My cousin’s go to, is the minestrone soup. I only wish the handicap restroom was a bit bigger.

We had looked forward to a nice, quiet dinner at Rosine's, to celebrate my wife's 78th. Since it was a Wednesday evening, we assumed that the place would be uncrowded. We arrived at 7:00pm to find the restaurant nearly full. With all the hard surfaces...More

We decided 1000 very positive Trip Advisor reviews were all we needed. Roseines was perfect for breakfast. He had the corned beef hash and I had the Pesto Scramble which was out of this world - note: huge portions. The marble rye toast is out...More

What a let down! Yes, we went because of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. I was really looking forward to made-from-scratch comfort food, but honestly, I could have made all of what we ordered better at home. The minestrone soup (supposedly a specialty) was WAY too...More
