Mother's Day Dinner - thank you son-in-law!!!!! Great variety of food. I ordered the Branzino appetizer and sigara boregi (spicy but not too spicy). This was plenty of food for a mea. The salads were huge. Cornmeal crust pizza was delicious. Calamari was cooked perfectly in a tomato based sauce. Mussels had a delicate cream sauce. We sat outside and... More

Great Mediterranean food! A family owned business with an excellent variety of dishes. Home-made breads and a stone oven for the perfect pizzas. We have a visited for lunch and dinner on many occasions and have never been disappointed. If you like mediterranean food, this bistro is a must!

We always enjoy our meals here. It is our "go-to" place close to home. The menu has a huge variety. They typically have daily specials including a soup of the day that is always delicious. Our favorites foods are: the complimentary rosemary bread and olive oil tapenade, spinach ravioli with saffron sauce, fettuccine alfredo, salmon, and lamb kabob meals.

Nice Mediterranean food, great variety of seafood, salads, lamb and pizza. I enjoyed the atmosphere and the low music. It was a nice surprise for a strip shopping center!

Rosemary's has a varied menu that changes frequently and that includes many excellent offerings. The food is excellent, the service is outstanding - what's not to like? We have been here many times over the last 20+ years and we have NEVER become bored with the menu, the quality of the food or the ambiance of the restaurant itself. Strong... More

Huge menu of Italian and Mediterranean offerings -- salads, pizza, pasta, seafood, beef and chicken dishes. We had great nachos for an appetizer followed by pizza, lamb shish and chicken shish with all the accompaniments-- salad, rice, and veggies. Service was attentive and professional. Ambiance was cozy booths and tables with adequate lighting in a newish neighborhood shopping center. Moderate... More

The staff is friend and the restaurant is cozy. They recently renovated this place so the decor looks more updated. I like the kebab and pasta and the dolma (rice and meat wrapped in grape leaves). The mussels and dips slacked a little on the other had. But overall the restaurant is good.

Rosemary's is usually consistently good. I'm not sure what happened tonight, but they were off. We had an extremely long wait for our food. While waiting for our food our waitress never checked on us. Once our food arrived, 2 of the dishes were stone cold. We ordered celery soup and it was too spicy to eat. One of our... More

We found the restaurant after a random online search. We were initially a little hesitant because we ended up there after our first choice for the evening had a ridiculously long wait-time and we were too hungry for that. We were very pleasantly surprised. Excellent, friendly service and delicious food made for a wonderful evening. Highly recommend!
