Rosedale Diner (The)
Located in Rosedale on Yonge north of Davenport, this diner has remained a neighbourhood favourite for 20 years The secret is an eclectic menu, generous portions, and cheerful service that attracts locals and out-of-towners. The menu ranges from genuine Israeli to Cal-Ital. Starters include Calamari Piccante with lemon and caper aioli, while dinner main courses are headed by a renowned Grilled Certified Angus Striploin. Brunch, served on weekends, is a house specialty. Six wines by the glass include a 1997 Tortoise Creek Syrah.
$48 for the Wagyu "special"; it was tough like shoe leather and terrible value.
That's more than you'd pay for a main at North 44 and Canoe!!!
Never again. And we will tell anyone who ever asks about the Rosedale diner to avoid it.
Although the food was good, the rude waitress, who turned out to be the restaurant's owner, was not only burdened at having to serve us, but when I called her on the "fruit salad" that came with my French toast – it was a couple of berries, half a strawberry and a thin slice of grapefruit (two berries more than my date’s “garnish”), she snapped at me. And when we asked to substitute the homefries for sliced tomatoes, we were told we would be charged $2 extra because she said it was a "salad" substitute. When we substituted items the dozen or so times we were there in the past, the other servers probably knew it was ridiculous to charge two bucks for three thin slices of tomato.
Our less-than-accommodating server left us with a bad taste in our mouths. It wasn’t so much that the cost of a $9 breakfast kept ratcheting up, but the fact that someone in the service industry could be so unfriendly! We left and found a half dozen other brunch spots we could try.
My opinion: you can get a good meal almost anywhere, so you might as well go somewhere you’re actually appreciated.
We live in the neighbourhood and over the years have eaten here frequently ( more than 12 times a year). Recently the service has had a serious decline--recently, despite a reservation, we found that early in the evening several of the menu items were unavailable or would require a one hour wait. We were airily waved off by the manager even though the waitperson said not much made sense. Two people ordered the same entree; one serving was reasonable while the other's was minuscule. This was the end of the line for us after several unhappy experiences recently.
i�ve been alive for twenty-one years and been eating at the diner all my life. i guess that explains the reason why my veins pump with rosedale burger juice and my hair looks like their french fries. i wouldn�t choose anywhere else to eat if i reliable, cheap, and awesome food. three cheers to the diner!
real food for real people! a great place, i belive it was open in 1978. busy, happy and yummy. it's a real restaaurant, very proud of cooking from scratch.
i wish that all restaurant will be so good and in expensive.
