I love this spot! They have great dishes, they have a nice menu, The cook in that place is a real pro, I love very much trying all their food. The food is always fresh, the service towards the guests is very good too. I visit often this place and I was never disappointed. I recommend it to all my friends.Uriah Ferrell 3/18/2020
Meat meat meet me in Chicago! I am an almost a vegetarian, except when I visit my Chicago. The nice atmosphere of dark and manly, male meat eating becomes serious for us ladies. Seated up front by the cool stairway, the service men floated around us like a hive swarm. Fun! Best waiter -- and service men in ties-- I love great attentive service, not always available in the Midwest. Waters filled, birthday cannoli, yes... Filet aged, moist, juicy, tender, roasted cauli , best A+ creamed spinach-- the bomb.Levin Latimer 3/17/2020
We like a lot to go out. Last night we went to this excellent restaurant which friends recommended to us. We had a beautiful evening there with first-rate food and an efficient team and an impressive chef. We added this place in our list and we will certainly visit again soon. We deeply recommend.Bernek Gabriel 3/16/2020
Marco and his staff we're very friendly people nice atmosphere great people great food. Can't wait to visit the outdoor patio. The piped-in music could be a little bit more pleasant for dinner music. Julie our waitress was awesome the girl at the front had the best personality great hostessDavid Benes 3/08/2020
Went for lunch on Sunday, mandatory valet not in effect at the time. Overall an outstanding experience at Rosebud Lemont. We had fish salad for an appetizer which was incredible. The entree, eggplant parmesan, was light, tasty, and easily the best eggplant dish in the area. Marinara sauce with the side of pasta complimented the dish perfectly. Expensive but worth it.Katherine K. 3/08/2020
Went their on a double date with friends. Menu is great and has plenty of Italian and semi Italian options. Me and my wife were observing a vegetarian palate due to religious reasons that evening. So I ordered ravioli and my wife had a pasta salad. I enjoyed my dish even though my expectations were set low for vegetarian food. Ambience was also nice as we were able to grab a drink at the bar waiting for our table.
Also, worth noting is that the parking here is easy compared to other similar locations in Rosemont which tend to be inside buildings. Since this was a standalone structure, we were able to park in the parking lot and walk in, instead of parking in a big garage and navigating our way more than necessary.
Also, to Carmine's management: It's time to take down the Christmas lights outside the restaurant guys! It looks tacky and lazy to have it hanging up late February.
This restaurant is unquestionably one of the coolest place to eat in the neighborhood. Always when I visit this place I am so happy. They maintain their very high standard service and the highest level of meals they provide. You are always happy with this restaurant. Warmly recommended.Lee Townsley 2/17/2020
Made a reservation and got sat in just minutes from walking in the door. Got a nice cozy table situated just as you walk down the stairs. We had a polite and knowledgeable waiter. We shared a bruschetta plate and some baked cheese ravioli, both were very good. This was the first place I'd ever encountered a staff member in the bathroom with an assortment of amenities and even turned the water on for me to wash my hands and everything. This seems like such a small detail but it made my visit here much more memorable, as you don't see restroom attendants very often.
The decor outside was great, great big sign and under the awning had nice string lights and heaters for the cold months. This is a great place to grab a bite on a snowy day and just look out the window. Had an awesome experience and would come again next time we come to the city!
I went here for Valentine’s Day and the service was amazing. Their prices are reasonable, and their portions sizes are hefty. I only ate half of it before taking it home. The Chicken Parmesan was extremely soft and juicy. They had heart balloons all around the restaurant and the vibe was homey but professional. I will definitely be visiting again!Chicago Food Reviewer 2/17/2020
We went here for Valentine's Day because we had a gift card and we really enjoyed it! We had a 6:30 reservation and they were running behind so we were not seated until 6:45, that was really the only negative of the night.We started with some wine, we ordered a red but the waiter gave us a recommendation that a similar bottle was a much better value, $55 at the restaurant but it's $32.99 at ninny's and $80 at his last restaurant, which means great value since they usually charge at least 2-4x store prices. We actually saw the bottle later at binnys and he was spot on! And the wine was good! Great service. We also got the spicy calamari over the regular calamari per his recommendation and really enjoyed it. Never had a fried calamari in a spicy soupy sauce with hot peppers so it was different but really good.Girlfriend got the 8 finger cavatelli which she really enjoyed and I got the Grandmas gravy dish which was very good with super tender meat. Overall a great meal with really good service.One note is the prices may seem high. But the portions are massive. We had full meal sized leftovers of all 3 dishes. So when you think of it as dinner and lunch it's a good deal.Will G. 2/15/2020
First off service, more then amazing! I wish I can give 10 stars Manager never spoke a word to him but I am definitely going to tell him how much of an amazing job he doing running this place because let me tell you my server was just as good as wellPlease come here it is fabulous everything! Grateful to come here on my birthdayChris F. 2/15/2020
All I wanted for my birthday was to be back in Chicago with my best friends, and that's what I got. After a day at Chriskindlemarket, dinner at the Rosebud made everything perfect. Dinner was perfect, service enjoyable, and my Italian heart could not have been happier. Looking forward to returning again for birthday 2020.Sue C. 2/14/2020
We went to rosebud Lemont for dinner with another couple on Saturday evening. The food was outstanding I give it a 10. The service was equal Marco the manager was Pleasantly welcoming. I enjoyed the Seabass over spinach which was done to perfection. 2 other people at the table had the white fish over spinach which was perfectly prepared , 4 th person had Zuppa Again perfect. Prior we all shared a pasta dish along with muscles for appetizers some bottles of wine and desserts everything was a 10. I highly recommend you visit Rosebud Lemont a fine restaurant .Jorie P. 2/10/2020
OUTSTANDING service and delicious food. Chicken parmigiana is Huge, its enough for two with an extra side of pasta! We love the Italian ricotta cheese cake with cherry compote, YUM! Cavatelli pasta is made fresh it reminds me of my Moms. The marinara sauce on their dishes is so fresh tasting. I have yet to order something I haven't liked. If I had to choose a negative it would be how loud it gets during busy times and how close the tables are to each other not much privacy. Neither of these would detour us from going back.Stephanie L 2/08/2020
We love eating out. Yesterday we found this fine place which friends told us about. We passed a delightful evening there with delicious food and an experienced stuff and a talented cuisine. We added this fine restaurant in our list and we will definitely visit again soon. We warmly recommend.Finnley Medina 2/06/2020
Good place with a calm atmosphere. Came here with a colleague from work and ordered the shrimp and broccoli pasta. Wasn't a great combo in my opinion. My friend got a steak; I made a poor decision. Other than that, it would be great to have faster service; the resto was understaffed.Vlad Romanov 1/28/2020
Great restaurant if you love an all encompassing dining experience, meaning service (Gerald) and staff, ambiance and decor, and of course, the course by course lovely presentation of supremely concocted delectable fare.
We arrived at the late hour of 10:30 PM just as they were about to close (our flight from LA was delayed). No problem. We were the only ones in the place and they showered us with affection and attention. Go and experience the warmth and wonderfully good cheer.
I often take my friends to this restaurant with my warmest recommendations. I go their often. I get very good feedback from my friends. The meals are great and the team is attentive and cooperative. always when we eat in this place we have a pleasant evening. warmly recommended.Gregg McCollister 1/21/2020
If I am asked "where do you want to go for dinner" when I am in town... Rosebud is my answer just about everytime! The food is great, the staff we have had has always been great. The beverage selection is nice. I love the atmosphere. Just an amazing place that is at the top of my life.Hanna Norris 1/21/2020
You must valet Park. No choice. Food is delicious. Service was great. Could have spaced the salads and entrees more. Portion sizes huge. Share items or plan on bringing home tomorrow's lunch 😁. Was crowded for a Wednesday night. Had no room for dessert. Didn't take photos. Was with people and would have been rude. Bring your wallet.Joseph Uhrich 1/19/2020
I arrive at this superb place from time to time as I like the special air that is outline this place. The crew is very cordial and well trained. The service is certainly quick. Not to mention, the food they serve is first-rate. I frequent many times and I was always happy. The rate is honest. I suggest this restaurant to to all.Jerry Fitzgerald 1/16/2020
I have to say - I really do love Carmine's and everything about it. This neighborhood spot is big and bustling and is ran old school style.A huge street front presence, Carmine's looks fantastic as you approach and offers the best people watching in town. Rush Street is always jumping, no matter the day of the week.Service is always impeccable from the host desk to service to management. The reservation process is easy. When I arrive the hosts always greet me immediately and seat me quickly. My servers have always been on top of their game offering attentive service even during the most busy evenings. Then there is the Managers. They know how to run a big ship and still make each customer feel appreciated.The cuisine is interesting and memorable. Homemade pasta that melts in your mouth, sauces to dream about and decadent desserts that leave you with a smile. Satisfaction is always the end result.Rhonda F. 1/12/2020
This place is happening. Excellent service, excellent food except the baked clams. They were teeny,tiny. For 12.95 they should give you more than 6 or get bigger clams. Also, the clam chowder needed salt. I will go back, though. Love the atmosphere, huge bar, friendly bartenders. One more thing, they need purse hooks under the bar.Ann Smilgys 1/11/2020
