Rosewater Review

So I really want to love Rosewater. Its nearby, its cute, the menu always sounds delicious.

But everytime I've gone (4 times now) -- one person's dish is fantastic, and the other's is horrible. I've been for brunch two times, dinner twice -- and on all four occassions the same thing happened. We had fantastic pancakes one day, and horrible eggs. The next it was fantastic eggs, and horrible french toast.

Went there for dinner the other night and ordered a pork loin medium rare (per the chef's suggestion). It arrived and was so tough to to bite into that it was essentially inedible. As I was commenting this to my partner, the person sitting at the next table informed me that she'd had the same problem, had complained about it, and they had done nothing in response to her complaint! I still said something to our waiter, and was completely ignored as well. My partner's fish dish, however, was wonderful.

We ended up spending over $120 to cover everything, and I couldn't even eat my dinner. This is way too much money to be spending for meals that are this uneven. I will not go back again.
