We went for the new brunch menu which was good. But, we preferred the dinner menu with more small plate options.

Great restaurant! All plant based meals and a good ambiance! Our server was friendly and supporting helps for everything to run faster. I wish we had gotten more of a run through of the menu once we were seated though. Overall, really good restaurant! and the ROSA BURGER is to live for!

Not especially big on Vegan but my daughter is and my wife enjoys. This restaurant and experience however was spectacular and would change my mind on becoming one. We all loved the food, the service could not have been better. Server explained all the menu (especially to me), made great recommendations and as we were limited on time to go off to a show, she arranged perfectly for the timing of the food (appetizers and courses).
Definitely a five out five!!!

For what it is, this is a great place . I'm not a vegan and I enjoyed the food. Service was adequate, plates were flavourful and creative. Drinks are somewhat overpriced. Nice ambiance, good for dates or casual dining.

The service was decent however the food was awful. The Valentine’s Day menu was extemly limited and disappointing, we barely finished the already small portions because the food was terrible.

The restaurant was clearly unprepared for Valentine’s Day. Prix Fixe dishes came out in the wrong order, wait times for food and drink ranged from 20-35 minutes. I have attended this restaurant before and it seems like it has greatly gone downhill from what I recall. I won’t be returning.

I’ve been to Rosalinda a couple times and enjoyed it thoroughly. But I came on Valentine’s Day and did not enjoy the set menu. Small portions, bland taste, and overall very disappointing. I also would have appreciated being told that we were able to order a la carte. I saw other tables ordering off the regular menu which I would have much preferred but we were not given the option.

I'm not a vegan, but if I could cook like this I'd eat vegan every day. The food was incredible, and also beautifully plated. The service was awesome, not too stuffy, but still professional and when we needed anything, they were on it. Plus, the lush greenery was such welcome ambiance in the dead of winter. We'll definitely be back.

I was in on Wednesday and had an amazing experience. Our server was absolutely wonderful. My dinner companion and I had the mole, barbacoa tacos, jackfruit tacos, veggie bites, coconut ceviche and two desserts. Everything tasted fresh and delicious. We haven’t been able to stop talking about it since. Wonderful food, service and atmosphere. We most definitely will be back to our new favourite restaurant.

Great service and food !
I’m a meat eater and was accompanied with two vegetarians.
All of us enjoyed our meal and our server was great. The bartender was also a great addition to our evening.
Will be back.

Food and cocktails are overpriced and bland. Putting things on a taco and handing out hot sauce doesn't make your food Mexican. Honestly the food here is a bad joke. Don't listen to the reviews that go something like, "OMG this place is so amazing!". Go to Fresh if you want tasty vegetarian/vegan food without the eye watering prices.

One of the best vegan restaurants in the city. We were a group and shared a number of items on the menu. We had the veggie fritters, potato it is inviting and a great vibe. Our server, Ola, was easily one of the best servers I have ever had. She was attentive and thoughtful and added to the overall experience.
I will absolutely be back and enthusiastically recommend anyone try it.

Went for a Sunday brunch and absolutely loved it! The portions are a little small in my
opinion, but the food was amazing! We got the breakfast tacos and french toast, which we loved. We also ordered the churros for dessert, and the upgrade to a sundae is worth it! Amazing restaurant and vibe!!!!

The food was delicious and service was on point. Only thing that could be better is if the tables had a wee bit more space between them. I’ll definately go back. FYI Their hot sauce was most excellent !

Rosalinda checks all of the boxes.
The food is as artful as it is delicious, meaning the plating begs to be appreciated. We gushed for at least 5 minutes over the Coconut Ceviche and Jicama & Citrus Salad before digging in.
The ambiance manages to straddle both cool/contemporary and comfortable. The service is friendly, on point and accomodating. (On the side? No problem. Can you leave that off the burger? No problem.)
Most of all... it's worth mentioning that you don't have to be vegan to appreciate the flavours, colours, presentation and quality. You just have to be a foodie.

Great food and the price wasn't too bad! I didn't like that they wouldn't let us sit at the bar -- apparently there was a large group coming to the bar. We asked if we could just sit down until they got there and we were told no. Other than that, great time!

It's best to order a few dishes and share with you friend - you get the most variety that way. I always find the staff exceptional - they are knowledgeable, forthright, and interested in sharing the experience.
