I have been here many times over the past 10 years and the food and service is always good. The daily soups show culinary talent and vary and the sandwiches have lots of variety. Reasonably priced for the quality of food.

This not only looks good it is good. Blackened fish tacos and slaw. All is made fresh at the Rosewood. They buy local and I like supporting that. These items were ordered to go. Delicious. I will go back and eat in. A great place to return for more yummy food.

The food was good, although I get a bit tired of all the attempts to come up with "new" combinations. Service was very friendly and the atmosphere is nice.

This small local bistro is one of our favorites. The food quality is always first rate and they have a good selection of beers and wines. they have some local competition now but their food is still among the best in the area for both value and quality..

We had a charming dinner the day after Thanksgiving at the Rosewood Cafe. It was relatively quiet and a great place to have a nice, conversational meal with my wife and college age kids. It was raining out so it made the Cafe feel even more comforting and the food fit that bill as well. Home made Pot Pie, great... More

I came here for dinner with my family for my birthday and we were quite pleased. I ordered the quiche and it was very delicious. The mac n cheese was good too and I didn't taste any other entrees but they all looked good. The line to be seated was about 30 minutes but the wait was definitely worth it.... More

If you are not familiar with Tacoma neighborhoods you might miss this place. It's small and cute with a good menu for lunch and brunch. We had sandwiches ( vegetarian, meatball, and roast beef) and quiche. All were delicious. Servers attentive and friendly, filling water whenever needed. Would eat here again.

Not what it used to be. The food is mediocre (and it appeared to be microwaved, not freshly made and cooked). Hoping that the lunches are still good because we're not going back for dinner, for sure. Beer cheese soup got a thumb's up from spouse but the chicken breast and the salmon, not so much. The bruschetta appetizer was... More

Stopped here for lunch while dropping off son at college. Had a great chicken salad caprese sandwich. Both were excellent. Did not have a specialty drink or dessert but they looked enticing as well as many other items on the menu. Including nice selection of wines and micro brewed beers and root beer. Will definitely go back next time in... More
