Went with family. Pasta over cooked, lasagne over cooked/dry, steak gristly, chicken tough, portions not as generous as previous reports. All in all does not live up to the hype. Too bad as we were looking forward to this meal. 10 people so lots of different items ordered and all were not worth a return visit. Maybe stick with the... More

I don't enjoy the crowded tourist areas as a location to eat. Rosina's is off the beaten path and local. The restaurant was moderately busy at 6pm on Sunday. There was no wait to be seated or served. Every waitperson stopped if they saw a need. Rosina's did not skimp on the portions- the hot beef plate could've easily fed... More

The food here is real good but the desserts are amazing. You must save room for a slice of cake which is absolutely amazing! There are so many choices! The restaurant can get crowded and parking is hard to find at tmes but it's a must stop in Monterey!

We walked in because we saw the dessert case. The food was ok but the dessert was worth the stop and the portions are huge! We went back the next day just to get another slice of cake!

Sometimes hot turkey and mashed potatoes sounds so delicious. This one won't disappoint. The desserts are amazing too.

Popular restaurant with good service and excellent meals at good prices. Huge desserts and assortment of baked goods. Locals eat here and you can get special weekend dishes on weekdays if they have some on hand. Their pork chops (8 oz. each)with eggs and potatoes is delicious. I see now you can order a half order of pork chop which... More

Visited here for dinner one evening whilst staying at Monterey for a few days. The service was excellent by smiling knowledgeable staff and the food was very tasty, a great choice, good portions which came with a 'free' starter. We had noticed the huge portions of cake but we had no room for dessert that evening and so returned at... More

After a long day of driving we popped into Rosine's to grab a bite to eat, we were very impressed. We are visiting from England and wanted to experience a traditional American restaurant. Our server was a lovely lady who has worked there for 14 years, she was warm, friendly and had an amazing memory, I am sorry I have... More
