Big portions and great food, followed by very nice attendance. The price is also fair. A must-go at Monterey!

This place is a must each time we visit. Even if it's just for the fantastic cake. Food is good but this should be the end of the night wine and dessert stop.

My experience at Rosine's was a great experience. The Waitresses are very helpful and professional. Some of them have been there for years which is a good sign. Not only the hamburgers are good the soup, salads and sandwiches are a good choice as well. Not to mention the deserts. Look at the CAKEs Over all good experience.

Rosines is one of the locals favorites for Monterey, Great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I recommend eggs Benedict for breakfast. Deserts are unbelievable!

We ate here twice within a 3 day span during a recent visit - first for lunch then for dinner. The breakfast was amazing (for lunch). For dinner we had the ribs and salads- they were also excellent. The prices are reasonable, the portions are huge, and the food is very good. This is one of my favorite places to... More

We dined here during our NYE visit to Monterey. We were seated after just a short wait. For dinner, we shared the calamari appetizer and it was well-seasoned. I had the lamb shanks for my main entree and it came with two pieces. One was perfectly cooked, so tender and falling off the bone delicious. The other was tough and... More

Went here for the first time today. A friend from Pebble Beach recommended this place and we were blown AWAY. If you like chiles, eggs and cheese, you MUST have the Chile Cheese Puff. It's enough for TWO people. To die for. And the CAKES!!!!! The German Chocolate Cake was EXACTLY like my German grandmother used to make. Bring an... More

One of the better places for breakfast. It's nice and service is pretty good. Sometimes it can get a little loud if all the doors and windows are open. Which is often because the weather is always good in Monterey. It's a little more upscale that some of the other breakfast places. Nice place to have a leisurely sit-down breakfast.

I am not much of a burger person but Rosine's ultimate burger is scrumptious. Everything at Rosine's is supersize and the burger was no exception. My husband and I shared it. That was not the plan but . . . and it was so good we cleaned the plate. Prices here are very reasonable, the family has remodeled and some... More

We shared the lasagna & a comment by my wife "where was the meat". There was a lot of cheese. We asked the server & all she said that it is in the sauce. From our viewpoint this was far too rich & it was one of the worst lasagnas we ever had.
