Appetizers are very exceptional and so is their wine selection. The atmosphere is nice, and the small bar in front wasn't bothersome to me as mentioned in some reviews. The servers were on the money and they are used to serving large groups of 8-12...and the tips that are left behind. I did leave wondering if I would get the... More

Quaint little gourmet restaurant. A MUST to try! Food is prepared with that special touch and is constantly perfection ! Caesar salad is phenomenal, home made soups, seafood and steaks we enjoy it all and are frequent diners....no TV in bar so it's romantic and very enjoyable

While travelling to Indiana, stayed in Perrysburg, OH (recommend Courtyard by Marriott for accommodations). Found this gem via Yelp and was not disappointed in the least. Great cocktails for wife and myself. We split escargot which were done perfectly without a shell. Not overly done with garlic and were very tender. She and my son had black grouper and I... More

With so many wonderful restaurants in the area, why anyone would go to the Rose & Thistle is beyond me. It's pretentious with no good reason, and I'm truly amazed that it remains open. The bar area is in the front, and generally there are boisterous locals who can be heard back in the dining room making merry. Of course,... More

I was led to Rose & Thistle based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and I was not disappointed! Since I was dining alone I sat at the bar and enjoyed getting to know some of the local regulars. The bartender, Janelle, was awesome. Very attentive without being pushy and made a great Cosmo. I ordered the scallops and house... More

really wonderful filet. this place has an older clientele and can seem a bit outdated. the chef clearly cares about food and is a perfectionist. we had the most wonderful fillet here, which qualified as the best steak we have had in the Toledo area, and we are are serious fans of Mancini's Bluewater grille.

I have lived in Northwest Ohio a majority of my life but last evening was the first time I had the pleasure of dining at Rose and Thistle. I can't tell you how many times I've strolled by the building over the years! In search of something new for our Senior Staff dinner, we decided upon Rose and Thistle. From... More

We ate here on New Year's Eve and it was hands down, the best meal I've had in Toledo. The service was impeccable and the food was original. It was fantastic. Every bite was better than the next. The atmosphere is awesome too. Very quaint.

We have been here s few times and always eaten at the bar (but the dining room is very intimate if you prefer a more formal experience. The bartenders are so friendly and make fantastic drinks (old fashioneds for us). We have had scallops, salmon, and the beef Wellington, and each were among the best we've ever had. They will...
