    Had a reservation for May 11th. No notice given that they were permanently closed starting May 2nd. Apparently this was not a last minute thing so a heads up would have been appreciated seeing as we live 2 hours away. Guess there is no need to worry about any negative feedback at this point. A text maybe? Maybe it was too much to ask. The McDonald’s we had instead since there was no way to get a Saturday table anywhere near the theatre was pretty solid though.

    The matscha crispy tofu had raw rice! I understand rice is half cooked but uncooked is not okay. I was surprised to see all couches being totally worn out. I did like the other dishes too, even the topfu in the above dish was amazing. Overall, The restaurant went from a 5/5 (when i visited few years ago) to a 3/5 from me.

    They were out of some of their popular food options when we visited. The temperature in the restaurant was also really warm, was drinking a lot of water to stay cool and not pass out. Small portions. Okay food.

    A farewell dinner before this short-lived establishment closes on May 4. The vegetarian burger with yucca fries & garlic dip proved quarter-pounders don't come just in hamburger! Massive, but offset by light yucca fries that were scrumptious. Macha tofu bowl was also copious & healthy. The crowds belied the excuse for closing, but maybe lured in by the half-price wine bottles on Wednesday? We will miss you, Rosalinda, and your friendly staff.

    We went for a special occasion dinner on a Friday evening. Unfortunately the service was extremely poor. The restaurant was not overly busy, but it took an exceptionally long time to be acknowledged by our server, and that pattern continued over the course of the meal. Our water glasses were left empty, plates were left stacked on the table, and we had to go out of our way to get our server's attention. She would often walk by and not make any eye contact. We would have stayed longer and ordered more food/drinks if not for the service.

    I had higher expectations but the food was a total letdown. I ordered nachos and was surprised to find no other fillings like corn, beans, etc. and there were only onions and tomatoes, it felt super dry. Burgers were also very dry. Service was slow.

    The food was incredible, the ambience lovely and the service okay. Our server forgot to bring a menu when asked, rushed us through our food/courses a bit, brushed off our questions about certain items and when asked about a specific ingredient in the dessert answered with “yeah, it’s probably that” (we asked him to double check and he was wrong). BUT the food made up for it.

    Upscale Mexican cuisine with great flavour and presentation for everyone, vegan or not. The dining room is decked out in plants, vibrant but not loud, with attentive service. I loved the flautas and the eggplant dish, as well as the jackfruit tacos. I’ve gone often with people who have various diets and everyone enjoys it. By far my favourite place to eat in this neighbourhood where things tend to be overpriced and underwhelming. Perfect before or after a show, especially as plates are promptly served.

    The restaurant closes pretty early, and unfortunately we weren't really aware of the fact that it was closing 1 hour after our reservation time (that and the kitchen closes one hour earlier). So things were a bit rushed. The food and drinks were nice, very good vegan options, but just a bit too savory in flavor (or perhaps because we didn't really order the right dishes). Overall it was nice, but we didn't really have time to get to experience the whole thing.

    Had an amazing Winterlicious meal at Rosalinda. It had been several years since my last visit. The food was as delicious as I remember and the bespoke cocktail was gorgeous and tasty. Anyone in doubt of the possibilities of vegan cuisine should try Rosalinda. It has some of the tastiest food I've ever eaten.
