I sat at the counter as I was travelling solo and had a lovely chat with the server behind the bar. Great atmosphere!

The place is small and packed with locals. The food is delicious and the bacon on my sandwich was the best I have ever eaten. They also made fresh squeezed lemonade with lavender which was very refreshing. Everything we had was very good.

We turned up without a reservation, and we could only get a table outside. The heater was on, but it was quite cold. As soon as a table became available inside we were offered it. We ordered 4 different pastas and we enjoyed all of...More

I had eaten at Rose's a couple times previously for lunch but this was the first time for dinner. It took us a while to get seated and to get the waiter to recognize us. They weren't that busy so maybe they were short staffed....More

After asking many locals where's the best place for lunch vast majority recommended Rose's....now I see why. Food and service both top notch. Only disappointment was the server recommended coquette (unsure of SP) for dinner and it was awful.....should have went back to Rose's where...More

We were so happy to get a table at Rose's on a rainy Easter morning! The wait staff kindly set two tables for our larger party. The food was great... especially the smoked salmon "pizza".

We stopped into Rose's late one evening and were seated immediately. We just needed a light bite. My husband had the minestrone soup and I had the citrus salad. Both were very good and reasonably priced. Just what we needed.

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.

A favorite in the Cow Hollow neighborhood, Rose's Café is a hangout for locals who bask in the sun at sidewalk tables, duck inside for a cappuccino, or stay for a leisurely lunch or dinner. Many customers are regulars who frequent our pretty bistro-café that offers table service and deliciously consistent food - Italian fare created using organic local produce, fresh seafood, humanely raised meats, and free-range poultry. Rose's artisan bakers bake a daily selection of pastries, desserts and breads. Menu highlights include: pizzas, daily soups, and house made pastas.
