Excellent food. The room temperature was very hot for winter time - perhaps Rosalinda should write that on the website.

Rosalinda was delicious! We ordered the beef tartare, broccolini as entres and the bowls were delicious as well. The food took a while to come out however they were apologetic and offered us fritters on the house.
Definitely keen to come back again and try their other dishes.

Every time I eat at Rosalinda, I can expect a seasonal update to the menu and fantastic service. The food is always satisfying, but the enthusiasm, knowledge and interest of all the staff makes any meal there extraordinary.

Our experience at this restaurant - from start to finish - was a bad one due to the ineptitude of the server. Simply put, one of the worst servers I/we have ever had. Food wise everything was good but nothing was great (could have been our state of mind at this point). Portions were very small which our server easily could have mentioned if not for his complete indifference.

Can't say enough about my experience here. If you think vegan is all about tofu and beans, you're mistaken. Such a colourful and creative assortment of food, and every bite an explosion of flavour. I can't wait to go again!

We spent my mother’s birthday here and the food was great but the service, not so much. Took us 3.5hrs to conclude our visit, they kind of just forgot about us after the appetizers. Wouldn’t return for a special occasion, maybe everyday dining.

Fantastic meal! Service was attentive but not intrusive. Food was fresh, well balanced, and not over salted/oily/saucy. Thank you!!
I wish a location would come out toward Mississauga but it’s definitely worth the drive downtown. Can’t wait to return!
PS: good enough wine list. But if wine is your thing ( like me) list wont make you happy. Cocktail list looked interesting but I didn’t have one.

I really enjoy eating at Rosalinda. I have been twice, now and will definitely be back again. I love that is it vegan and that the majority of their menu is gluten-free. There are not many places where I have so much to choose from on the menu. It is also very pretty while still being comfortable and I found all of the servers to be warm, friendly & helpful.

As always Rosalinda blows me and my guests out of the water. The food is ALWAYS spectacular.
2 of the 3 times I brought non vegan people for their bdays and they loved every bit of it. Said it’s the best vegan food they’ve had and just all around had a great time.
They brought over some fun bday shots as well. Just a great time. My favourite vegan restaurant in the city (when I’m willing to spend a bit more :p)

I believe it was Jake who was serving us he had a great energy.

As did Jordan who seemed to be closing with him and helped out.
Didn’t get to interact much with Michael as he was behind the bar but I know he’s pleasant from previous experiences!

Our overall experience at Rosalinda was very good. The portions are quite small so you may leave hungry. The carrot dish, though tasty, would benefit from some accompaniment or garnish - it was rather one note. The eggplant dish was divine. Full marks for the churros!
