I hope my recent experience was an anomaly and preface with the following: I love(d) Rosemary’s. Wendy and Michael were/are always gracious, wonderful hosts and chefs. Years ago, it was one of my favorite restaurants and the entire staff was great, especially the somm. Obviously, with the addition of quality places to dine, I have eaten here less and less.
Recently, we went for a small celebratory dinner and I left unimpressed. The food was not as great as I remember (it’s been close to a year since I’d dined there). Overall, I thought the quality, preparation, and presentation were lacking. We ordered some usuals- bbq shrimp, spinach salad, scallops, steak, etc. Each app/entrée was sauced in such a manner that it overpowered the main ingredient. Couple that with only decent ingredient quality and I was disappointed. I know Rosemary’s is a beloved spot on CH, so I hope we just caught them on an off night. As a note, the service, as always, was outstanding.
