This was my second time eating at Rosalinda. The food is fantastic. My friend has allergies and they were able to accommodate her with no problem (but I would call ahead to confirm re your specific allergy). The presentation of the food was very nice. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. I'll be back!

Food was amazing - from appetizer to dessert, I loved everything! Had the spicy tofu bowl as a main and I can't stop thinking about it. Couldn't decide whether to get the chocolate mousse or churros for dessert and I was contemplating in front of the waiter. I ordered the mousse because I thought it would be less filling and he brought out a smaller order of churros as well for me -- on the house! What great service! The place is gorgeous! What a nice retreat in the middle of winter blues.

This is very easily the best restaurant I have ever been to. The food is unbelievably flavorful and perfectly presented. The staff is attentive and genuinely enthused to serve you. Highly recommended to vegans and non vegans alike. WOW! Toronto's #1 vegan restaurant

Our waiter, was amazing! The food so delicious, it’s nearly a delicacy. When one dish wasn’t quite my cup of tea he removed it, and then brought out two glasses of wine for my birthday! We love it here and cannot wait to come back!!!

Great food and great service.
Nice touch for the waitress to add a candle to my friend’s dessert for her birthday.
We also all got complementary shots! And the end.

Good food for the price. Service we had was awful. Didnt fill out drinks, didnt tell us there was a wait in food, didnt ask how the food is or how we were doing during the 20-minute post appetizer (delayed entree), didnt tell us the special desert (but made sure to tell us it was probably the last one they had). Our first time here and it was a bad service.

The decor is absolutely stunning. It really makes the restaurant. We had the New Year’s Eve fixed special dinner and split the menu so we could try each option available. All the food was delicious but wierd hahah. Every time we ate something we said I have no idea what this is but it tastes great! Our only complaint is that the portions for the entree were just way too small. We finished it in a few bites and we’re still hungry by the end of the night and we had also ordered a jackfruit taco and still were hungry. Great food but for the price I was hoping to be full. Great experience though.

Great place, but I didn't like the hominy and mushroom dish...I like unique things, but either an ingredient was forgotten in that dish when it was served to me, or it's just simply a disgusting dish. Other dishes were great though. Atmosphere is beautiful, modern, stylish, nature-like and cosmo. Spacious and large, which is rare for a downtown joint.

An amazing experience start to finish. Two of us shared two appetizers, tacos and two desserts. Everything was so beautifully presented and had many layers of interesting tastes. Ask for their house hot sauce—amazing!! Excellent cocktails too and we really appreciated the attentive but casual service style.

Food is always good, server was attentive and very personable. The only complaint I would have would be regarding one of the main dishes - it was like a nacho bowl type thing with avocado and jalapeños. The bottom layer of tortillas were soggy and took a long time to come out. Flavours were there though. Overall a good experience and I will definitely be back. Food was very good and flavourful! Order the veggie fritters - they are seriously delicious.

We went to Rosalinda for Sunday dinner. We were seated promptly and our coats stashed away. Our waiter arrived quickly and offered to answer questions. His service initially was attentive-to-overbearing. He seemed to settle into the meal service eventually. We ordered an appetizer to share and drinks. We also ordered tacos and tostadas to share, as well as the Tijuana-style broccolini and roasted eggplant. All of the food arrived in a rush, as if we were going to devour it all immediately. Appetizer arrived and 15 seconds later one tostada and then a full plate of tacos. The food was great and we enjoyed it, taking our time, even if everything came out of the kitchen in a mad rush. When we asked the waiter if we were missing a tostada, he seemed to take personal offence and after bringing the missing dish, left us to our own devices in a complete switch from his earlier attentive behaviour.
Our starter of chilaquiles verdes was amazing. None of us had had it before and it was a great first experience.
The broccolini was excellent. The eggplant was delicious. The jackfruit taco was delicious. I would have been happy to just have the jackfruit taco; the others paled in comparison.
We shared spiced churros for dessert. They were good churros.
Overall, the restaurant is a beautiful space. The food was better than average, but the overall experience left me lacking.
I would go again to see if this visit was a one-off or if it is typical of the Rosalinda experience.
