"went for recent weekend brunch. Excellent selection with a great special(lamb and eggs). Everyone enjoyed the dishes-bacon wrapped eggs benedict, egg frittata, steak and eggs, and one other dish. Best hash browns ever. Very good and attentive service-a bit funny to add to the attention he gave to the table.
Highly recommend.

"Excellent selection of typical brunch food as well as a full and varied lunch selection. While we didn't order the Restaurant week specials, they too looked excellent. the service was attentive, yet relaxed. Everyone ordered an egg dish and we all were satisfied. The food was warm and well presented. While we began our meal early and the restaurant was quiet, by the time we were midway through, the restaurant was quite vibrant and almost all the tables were full.
Overall a good place for lunch.

"Went recently for brunch with friends. Very limited brunch menu as compared to dinner menu, although you can order lunch food or from the brunch menu. Most of us ordered brunch food and there were no 'raves' about any of the dishes. The eggs scramble was one step above diner eggs-nothing all that special. The croque was good, but again, we should expect a bit more. Sweet potato fries were terrific but served ahead of all the rest of the food. This seemed odd. Service was very attentive and responsive-drinks were good and we especially liked the bloody marys.
Anyway, I'll return again and sample either the lunch or dinner menu to see how the restaurant really performs. It is a very nice atmosphere and the menu seems very worthy of excellence and hopefully we will be able to experience it.

"We recently on a Monday night and to our surprise, Rosie's was quite busy. In fact, just about every table was filled. It is a testament to the restaurant-its food and service. This was our first dinner at Rosie's and all four of us were very pleased. We had some traditional dishes: chicken parmesan, veal dimartino, ravioli, and penne with a vodka type sauce. All were generous portions and very tasty. The service was attentive and helpful. We will sure look to return at a later date."

Culinary School graduate and James Beard honoree Chef Navjot Arora has put together a unique menu borrowing from the vast culinary diversity of India.<br />We truly believe great food starts with great ingredients. We procure only fresh, wholesome ingredients with no artificial flavorings or additives, local produce wherever possible, all natural poultry, free range lamb, wild not farmed seafood. We grind our own spices to ensure freshness.<br /><br />The New York Times gave high marks to our succulent tandoori cooked meats and referred to our sauces as superbly complex.” Vegetarians will feel like royalty” says The Journal News, referring to our delicious curries and vegetable appetizers. Our menu reflects Chef Navjot’s true passion for food that began from a very young age. He further honed his skills and learnt from the very best master chefs at the Taj Group of Hotels <br /><br />The menu offers a variety of combination platters, along with biryanis, curries, tandoori entrees.

"We were looking for a place to dine and with little discussion we selected this one. We had only heard good things from friends and we were not disappointed. While the reservation was on the early side(6pm), so the restaurant was relatively quiet but gradually filled. The service was highly attentive-the water glasses always near full. All of the selections were flavorable(maybe a bit on the spicy side) and very well presented. We enjoyed the sample vegetarian appetizers and one shrimp and one lamb(with yogurt-curry) entree and these were all terrific.
Will definitely return with friends as this is a great place to share appetizers and entrees.

"Went with friends on a Saturday night and were delighted with the experience. The service was quite good-attentive, friendly, helpful and patient. The food was very good, although these are somewhat small dishes and a bit pricey. We enjoyed everything that we ordered and sampled from others and it was quite relaxing, even for a Saturday night. Never rushed even though we spent a long time at the table and were nearly the last ones out of the restaurant.
Plan to return in the future-will probably think of this for special occasions as the price is a bit much given the amount of food that needs to be ordered.
