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

We stopped by on an early Saturday evening. We didn't have reservations and only chose this spot as a competing restaurant down the street was fully booked. Very lucky for us, as the Rousseau house was excellent. We were seated immediately upstairs and had the room to ourselves for a good amount of time (5.30 PM) dinner start. Service was... More

My husband and I only had drinks here so I can't speak about the food. The food we saw coming out however looked really appetizing. The building is beautiful and it has a great patio to enjoy a cocktail in the sun and watch the world go by. The service was friendly and very good and they make an excellent... More

Husband and I went for dinner as our first choice was full..We were able to get a table same day which was nice, but our table was right beside a walkway to a private room hosting a party and the door was open so our romantic dinner was not at all romantic... We were thinking it was a little more... More

We had had a disappointing meal there years ago so did not go back until this summer. We went in June and had a really good lunch on the patio and then went back in august for dinner. It is a beautiful location and we were so happy that they have a good chef now. I think the menu selections... More

After a golf tournament a bunch of very well off business men suggested we go to Rousseau house for a drink and to watch the Olympics. Upon arrival there was maybe 10 people in the entire restaurant and around 8 of us. We sat at the bar and an older gentlemen was to serve us. I have been a waitress... More
