In 1980 the first Rosine's Restaurant was opened by Jim and Rosine Culcasi and their four children, in Monterey, California. The restaurant was an instant success and all the family shared in the work, from cooking and baking to serving and greeting. Rosine's established a reputation with satisfied customers who enjoyed the delicious homemade soups, hearty meals, homemade fresh pies and sumptuous array of delicious, homemade, award-winning cakes.
Rosine's has great service that is really hard to find. The portions of food and dessert are perfect for the price you pay. Not only that, but it taste delicious. If you are in the area, you should try it out.
I've only been there a couple of times, but was more than satisfied with the service, the food, the quantity and quality and the reasonable prices. Can't imagine a bad experience at Rosine's. The biggest problem one time was the crowd pushing on the street at the place next door. Otherwise, only good things to say....and the desserts - to die for.
I don't know where the last two reviewers ate but they must not be used a decent meal. Sometimes you just can't please an unhappy tourist! This Restaurant is our favorite here in Monterey. The lines out the door are worth the wait. Great for anyone desiring a delicious meal with top knotch ingredients ending with one of their delicious desserts. Their Eggs Benedict is the best I have ever had. We eat here 2-3 times a month and have never been disapointed.
I've been going to Rosine's since I was in diapers. They have a great staff, good food and killer desert. It's packed to capacity patronage every morning is a testiment to how great the resteraunt is. One tip though, if you order desert, don't plan to eat for a few days
I practically live at Rosine's and have become a friend of the Culcasi family. The food is amazing, and the service has never been less than stellar unless the server is new, which I perfectly understand.
The desserts are awesome, the prices reasonable and the portions HUGE (I usually get two meals out of each order.)
I can't recommend Rosine's highly enough!
Don't know what the big deal is about this place. It was buzy but their food was pretty bad. Had a sandwich with potato salad. Their potato salad was definitely out of a can and the sandwich had very little meat (Reuben). Also the service was
pretty disappointing. Rude waiter and a took a long time.
At the end we ordered a slice of a carrot cake which was all
cream and spunch but big. My wife had one spoon full and just couldn't get it down. Sorry I wish I had something better to say.
My husband, son and I ate at Rosine's upon recommendation of a local. The food was just okay, except for my son's meal, which they kind of messed up on. But oh my G-d, what a dessert. It has been more than a year now, and I am still looking for the recipe for the Snicker's pie that we ate. The dessert made up for it all.
