I enjoyed the best short ribs ever, no bones and melt in your mouth tender and flavorful. Good oysters, and mussels appetizer is really good served in a very tasty broth! Prices are in line with the quality of the food and atmosphere. Restaurant is on second floor but has an elevator. Nice patio area out back, but too cold for dinner that evening. Very pleasant staff, nice attentive server. Watermelon Martini is superb! Between specials and menu, we'll have to come back and try more.

Went with another couple. Got there early and had a drink at the bar. Michael was wonderful and had the best watermelon martini. Then went into restaurant. Beautiful. Had oysters and mussels for appetizer. Then 2 ordered steak special. My husband ordered short ribs.amazing. I had fettuccine with lobster. We were there for 2 hours and never felt rushed. Will be back

We attended a family event here today for about 30 people. The food was very good and the service excellent. The staff was very friendly and even assembled small dessert plates and delivered them to the tables of our more elderly members. They facility is beautiful. Great place for a function, a cozy dinner, or just a drink.

We will be back. This one is on the list!

We never really felt welcome when walking into Rosaria for our Valentine's Day dinner. We were greeted at the top of the stairs by 3 people that didnt seem to know where we were going and when. We did arrive early for our 7pm reservation. When they finally figured out where to put us we were brought to what appears to be their function room with setup tables. I expected to be in the main dining room as I made the reservation a month ago for dinner.

Once seated were were only handed 1 menu and told we had to share as they didnt know where the other menus were at the moment. This started the night off on a sour note. The young staff running water and bread were right on point. They came to our table almost immediately. However our server was not as good. When finally greeted we were told we would need to have our order 1000% ready to go as their computer system was down and that they needed to write everything out by hand. My comment that "we know our whole order as we have had plenty of time to review" didnt seem to clue the waitress that we were waiting to long. She then walked away and said ill be right back.

She then returned to take our drink order which at this time I told her to take everything as we know have been sitting for approx 20min with nothing being done. We ordered our Antipasto, Entree's and a kids meal. we then proceeded to wait for everything else to come into play. Dinner took over 2 hours.

Waiting for a second glass of wine was a stupid mistake as that took another 15min

Then when asking for the check our waitress continued to walk by us and not have anything ready. I hate doing this but when signing my tab I left the below 20% standard because service was that bad.

I had high hopes for this place but they fell far short. Even the GM or the Maitre De' if you will didnt have the common sense to see that people were impatiently waiting for their checks for over 15min...he must have walked by us 5 times. He saw us put on our coats, sit down, stand up and flat out wait to PAY!

Wont be going back again

the food rivals Strega, the service equals Strega and Rosaria's is far roomier and more comfortable to navigate. Excellent wine list and cost is better than reasonable. Cannot compliment the establishment enough. Beyond good.
