We have eaten at this restaurant a few times, and unfortunately we were disappointed with with the service and quality of food. I hate to write bad reviews but it's better to be informed and maybe the owners will use it as constructive criticism and make some improvements. I would be willing to try again, as it is a very...

Went for lunch with friends. Nice old home with cosy atmosphere. Service and food were very good. We normally do not order appetizers as we are not big eaters. However, lunch portions were quite small for the price and we could have had an appetizer. We chose to have dessert which we normally do not order.

We have been to our neighbourhood restaurant quite a few times over the years. It is a bit pricey, but the Tapas menu is excellent. A very cozy evening out with friends. It is also wheelchair accessible which is very nice when I take my parents out.

Booked as an alternative to a more expensive restaurant down the street, the Rousseau House did not disappoint. Lovely ambience, nice menu (though not extensive), fair prices. We all enjoyed our meals: Arctic char was outstanding, chicken moist and flavourful, and the guys loved their steaks. Service was excellent. It's such a pleasure to have a conversation over dinner without... More

If we travel to Italy,it is hard to stay away from Le Mazinaie (near Montepulciano Stazione). We have spent many vacations at Le Manzinaie since our first visit there in 2002 when they opened the Agriturismo. In October, 2016,after a Mediteranion cruise, we spent a few days at Le Manzinaie. Our hosts were so welcoming despite all the work that... More

My boyfriend and I stopped in for some wine and a nice lunch after hiking near the area and we were very dissatisfied by our service. When we first came in a female server politely greeted us and ensured she would be right with us but another older male server came right behind her and seated us promptly ..... nothing... More

We had lunch at Rousseaux House, and were surprised that, except for salads, there were no gluten free options. We both had the beet salad with chicken/fish, but there was no GF pasta as an option - its so easy to just have a package 'at the ready' for clients who need this option. We were disappointed.

Went to Rousseau House several times this summer and fall. Really enjoyed eating and drinking on the patio with live music some evenings. This restaurant is under-rated! We started with the Pierogi filled with sweet potatoes, browned butter, aged cheddar, bacon, and caramelized onions and the the crispy calamari; they were delicious. The main course, a Certified Angus Burger with... More
