We went with some good friends to celebrate our 51st and 55th anniversaries. Everything was great, including service. The food was worthy of a 5 star restaurant and yet the price was moderate, $32.50 for appetizer, entree and desert. Wine was cheap! It is relatively...More

The Rosemary has delicious food, and great customer service. The restaurant has an open concept, which quickly filled up. The noise level was at a minimum. We asked to split a meal, and it was not a problem. Lamb chops were cooked perfectly. I will...More
