Food wasn't good (except for the house salad, which was excellent), service was not good, waitstaff had personality and were not attentive to what we asked for. We really want this place to make it since we live nearby, but they need to step up their game!

We had a party of 5 for Easter Brunch and the overall experience was ok. I had the crab cakes and they were so filled with shell that I could only eat one. I brought the other home hoping it would be better than the first, but, alas, it was worse. The ham steak and shrimp with polenta were good... More

My husband and I visited Rosso for a date night. We started with the meat and cheese plate. It was delicious. The pickles were especially delicious. I had the salmon with polenta. I enjoyed every bite. The greens were very good. My husband got the pork chop. I had a bite - very tender and moist. I also had the... More

Awesome happy hour, food and ambience. They also do catering for special events. I had them cater an important business dinner at Loft 201 - 701 Whaley; Richard Couture (owner) and Chef Howard did a phenomenal job! We had a number of special requests and they happily accommodated them with perfection. Everyone raved about the food and the unique experience.... More

We were a group of twelve for dinner at 7 pm. Several folks arrived 1/2 early and everyone was seated promptly. Carline and Stewart immediately greeted us began by offering bread service, water and cocktails and as the remainder arrived they were waited on expeditiously. The servers ensures our cocktails were replaced immediately, as well as bread and water. The... More

We have been to several of the "Feature Nights" including the lobster and filet nights. The filet was the best I have had at any restaurant. The owner is warm and friendly and the staff pleasant and efficient. The wine dinners have been informative, offered great pricing, and presented wonderful pairings. Please don't pass up an opportunity to give this... More

My favorite restaurant in Columbia has succumbed to new owners and new chef over the previous 1 to 2 months!!! The menu is the same but changes are on the horizon as they can't cook/prepare the old great dishes. Examples: fried artichoke hearts were excellent in past with tomato jam!! Now over crusted artichokes with no flavor and a new... More

I received an email from Rosso advertising their Tuesday night lobster nite. Being from New England I can never resist a lobster night special! However, what a huge disappointment!! I had been to Rosso several times before and found their food to be very inconsistent - sometimes great, sometime requiring the food to be sent back, but the photo in... More
