Rosebud - what's wrong with me?

Hondapendragon | Jan 24, 2006 12:09 PM

Checked out The Rosebud last night.

After all the hype on this website, I figured I was in for a real treat.
Although the service was phenomenal.. the food was only so-so.
I had the beet salad which had way too much balsamic vinegar. And the seafood stew was good, but not great. I think I'm spoiled though cause my mom's seafood stew is out-of-this-world.

My boyfriend had bread (which we had to pay for) and the pasta bolognese, which he said was standard fare.

Even the espresso was sub-par! Way too dilute.

For a mediocre meal at $50 a head, I think I'm gonna pass on a return visit.

I really appreciate all the recommendations though.. at the very least I was able to share a romantic dinner with my boyfriend (A+ for ambiance)... so thank you!! :)
