This is hands down a fantastic vegan restaurant. Everything was so flavourful, and the churros oh my gosh. Will be returning!!!

Absolutely amazing. Had a non-vegan guest with me... the taste and flavor blew his mind.

This was my second visit to Rosalinda - the service was excellent - the staff very warm and welcoming. They were serving only their brunch menu which is pretty limited. I had their chilaquiles which were fine but, for me, just too salty. I could taste salt for the remainder of the day. My husband had their burger with 'fancy' fries - the fries were too salty - the burger was fine. All in all, it is well priced and it is vegan so no second-guessing the menu

The food was incredibly delicious, it was my second time and it did not disappoint. They were out of my choice of wine, and I found the other preferred option a bit pricey. Other than that, I was satisfied. Will definitely visit again.

Great food, loved the restaurant. Unfortunately our server did not come around very often...we went 45 mins without him stopping by, we would have likely purchased more drinks/food. Thankfully he didn’t ruin our night. I would ensure your servers are checking on tables more often, you could be losing out on a lot of money!

We went Friday night and there were 2 groups of over 12 people and made the restaurant very, very noisy. It was a big mistake choosing this day and we will never go back on a weekend. We went there before and it was great.

Amazing place! Food was fantastic and great atmosphere. I would highly recommended the Coconut “Ceviche” and the “Chorizo” tacos. They also make an awesome margarita 😊

Nice and hip atmosphere, but taste was so so and the food portion was ridiculous for the price. We dine enough to know but this one was rather disappointing given the high reviews. Would not return and wish we chose somewhere else.

Pretty normal fair. The carnitas tacos, Rosaburger and chimichurri bowl were okay, not great, just okay. The stand out was the crispy tofu bowl(had the most flavour) and the churros.

Initially, we waited a while for drink orders, maybe 15 min. But after that, service was prompt. The food was by far the best of any I’ve had this year! So flavourful!!! I live an hour out of downtown And would seriously consider come back here over restaurants 5 min away from me!

So DELICIOUS!!

The food was not that good, we even returned a dish that we didn’t like and we will were charged for that dish. It is not the best vegan option in Toronto.

Excellent food and atmosphere. Would recommend. It seemed it was our server’s 1st night and made several comments we thought was extremely odd. He asked us on 3 separate occasions “was there something else we were waiting on” to which I replied you tell me. We were actually waiting for him to offer us a dessert menu. When we finally asked to see one and ordered a dessert he came back to drop off cutlery. He came back moments later and again asked a 3rd time what we were waiting on. Lol perhaps an off night. Defiantly would recommend trying Rosalinda - food was really great.

My husband and I had an incredible experience at Rosalinda and we’ve been telling our friends and family! The food was fresh, flavourful, served quite quickly and was delicious! Best of all, because the food is vegan and therefore lighter on the stomach, we were able to try several dishes and still walk out feeling satisfied but not heavy (and also feeling healthy and energetic)! I would highly recommend this restaurant. The dishes on the menu may not seem familiar to you but ask questions, look at the glossary at the bottom and don’t be afraid to “take the leap” and try something new and difficult as you won’t be disappointed at Rosalinda.

Food was delicious! I had the jackfruit tacos and it has the right amount of spice and was very flavourful. The cost is a bit high for vegetarian food but it was a nice experience . We ended with churros. Yum!

I am not vegetarian or vegan but go to Rosalinda semi-regularly nonetheless. The food is great and the people are lovely!! For someone who used to consider meat THE point in every lunch or dinner this place was and is a revelation.

Only issue - the waiters are uniformly and peculiarly impossible to ‘get’. The pacing on every lunch I’ve had there is always off, you just can’t get someone to take tour order, serve the food, check on you and get you a bill (especially that last point) in any reasonable amount of time or pacing. This is despite the fact that they all seem to be lovely people who care. Why??? I really don’t know - last time there we told the waiter we needed two more minutes to order which was followed by 13 minutes of trying to flag someone down to finally place a lunch order and another 19 minutes at the end of lunch trying to get our bill.

And still - nicest people and great food!! So go and just give yourself lots of time.

Our server Jess was amazing! She made great recommendations and was so accommodating and attentive. My previous experiences here were lacking in comparison! Cannot wait to go back again now that I have some menu favourites.

I entered Rosalinda's with high expectations, which may be why I was disappointed overall. We ordered jack fruit and carnitas tacos, roasted cauliflower tostada, a burger to share and a couple of drinks.
The drinks were lovely, the Atmosphere was beautiful and thoroughly enjoyable. The cauliflower tostada was my favorite of the bunch, followed by jack fruit tacos. Carnitas were a bit bland, but passable while the burger was a huge disappointment. I'm generally a fan of veggie burgers especially black bean but this was a flat patty with toppings that seem like an afterthought. Avoid for the price. Nothing else on the menu was really enticing, thought if I had to pick again I might go for a bowl.
I won't go back, there are far better vegan places in Toronto for less, but it was fine to try.

I came here for the Winterlicious menu. The timing of the appetizer and main dish delivery was on-point. But, the dessert took a while to arrive. Server was friendly (although, I'm sorry to be candid here, he had bad breath when he was talking to us). Overall, a 4 / 5 for a Wednesday night!

Being my first time, the experience was ok. Atmosphere, decor, food portion is nice. Quality is ok. I wasn’t blown away. Visited Rosalinda during “winterlicious” and ordered the following:
Starter:
Nacho corn soup, has a nice little hint of spice
Main:
Spicy tofu bowl, filling! Tofu’s coating tasted a little salty, very crispy, a little oily/greasy
Dessert:
Hand braided churro, tasty.

Winterlicious menu was okay — we loved the app (soup) and the dessert (churro), but the mains were lackluster. Wishing we could have had a taco or tostada since they’re known for that, or the burger! Even the lunch menu mains looked better.
