5 star rating Went to dinner here last night and it was great from the moment we walked in. We were greeted warmly and asked if we wanted indoor or outdoor. Really appreciated given a choice. Our waiter was knowledgeable, kind and patient as we decided on drinks and meal choices. Everything was delicious. We will definitely go back.

4 star rating First of all when you come here you dont just come to eat. You come here to stuff your face with italian food ...not just to eat a salad. I can buy my own cucumber,lettuce and tomato ...Theres alot of like old spice tinged crusty old man ambiance to go here. Sometimes the average age is 75...But hey it's the viagra triangle :)Spaghetti bolognese was delicious but cost $30.00...I am coming back to sample the ribeye. I cam here because my friends and I needed a break from our covid stay at home life and needed to go to a place that was classy and had outdoor dining. This more than fit the bill.

A group of 8 of us were in the Chicago area for business. One of my coworkers suggested Rosebud as he had been there before. We were all very happy with our choices. The fried calamari was light and delicious. The Italian Sausage and Peppers were delicious as well.

Ordered takeout from here for a company lunch during COVID-19 and Rosebud went above and beyond to make sure that we were taken care of. They had all our meals wrapped up and bagged separately to avoid unnecessary touching. Ivan & Carlo were extremely accommodating to make sure we got what we needed and they even arranged for the chef to come in early to be sure we got our meal at our desired time. Thank you Ivan & Carlo for making this process easy! The food was also fantastic. Will be returning again!

4 star rating Ok so this review is just on takeout. The guy we ordered our food with was very friendly. The food was pretty good. Got the cheese ravioli and honestly it wasnt bad. But if it wasnt for my gift card I wouldnt have gone more because of the pricing. Other than that though good food. Also the garlic bread was good but if you dont want garlic breath for days I wouldnt recommend lol.

5 star rating Eggplant stack! Might be my favorite thing in the Gold Coast. Good meatballs too. Nothing bad to say about Carmine's. I've been coming here for many years and still like it! Glad it's still around.

4 star rating I ordered take out given the recent closure of restaurants but was very pleased with my meal and appetizers. Minus the garlic knots those were a bit too oily. But all things considered it worked out well and everything else was super delicious, I'd definitely go back/order again.

5 star rating Wow! Perfect birthday night! Our server Kate the Great was phenomenal! Kate was SO attentive, it is fair to say, I have not ever had service so perfect! Kate thought of everything, and made sure my birthday night was perfect. Clearing dishes, consistently checking in with me personally, making sure I had a fun night. Food was terrific, live music in the background. I had a great night. Kate was so, so good, I can't say enough.

5 star rating THIS IS AN UPDATE TO AN EARLIER REVIEW FROM A FEW DAYS AGO. I am pleased to report that Rosebud-Lemont's manager has begun dialogue with me and we have reached a better understanding of our dining experience. I am extremely pleased that Adam (Manager) responded to my review within hours to address my concerns. It shows the customer that indeed their concerns are taken seriously and Rosebud does want to ensure their customers are the main priority. My faith has been restored and I look forward to a fresh start with Rosebud. Kudos to Adam for going the distance to help turn a negative into a positive experience! Thank you, Adam!

Only reason for 4 stars & not 5 was they had the music too loud. We asked for them to turn it down & they did. Sea bass special was outstanding but priced at over $50 was a bit pricey in our opinion. Lasagna was excellent as was the Fusilli Carbonara. Drinks were excellent as was our waiter.

5 star rating Huge portions of everything from appetizers to even bigger desserts. The desserts are amazing, huge, creamy, and savory. The sauce on the pasta is great and enough for two people to share. Pappardelle pasta with mushrooms sauce was amazing.

5 star rating Wow! What can I say, but delicious. From the service, ambiance and food, they all get 5 stars from me.They offer great specials, and if you're a baked clam lover, you have to order the clams. They are oh so yummy.If you're in the O'hare area and your craving something delicious, head on down to Carmine's. They will not disappoint. Ciao!!!!!

5 star rating Had a fantastic experience here! We were told that they were out of gluten free noodles so we had to leave after eating some bread, but I guess they actually did have some so the host ran after me and brought us back. Great customer service and delicious food!

5 star rating First fancy dinner since returning to Chicago and it was amazing! The outdoor dining is beautiful- although- I don't think I was 6 feet away from the surrounding tables. As far as food goes- it's delicious and the portions are generous. Great sangria too!

A preferred spot for quality Italian food. I will probably become a regular. Prices are appropriate for the quality. Food is similar to a cafe in Portland I loved.

It was my first time at this Rosebud location. Overall good experience. Service was excellent. Food came out quickly and was well made. They seem to have creatively created sufficient outdoor space to allow for a sense of normalcy in the midst of covid. Would reccomended.

5 star rating I am SHOCKED to see this place has only 2.5 star reviews. I do not know how that is possible! I did not read them and do not want to as I do not want to be influenced by bad reviews of my new favorite burger on planet earth!I NEVER write reviews, but HAD to in this case. My experience is all surrounding the quality of a burger I had at Rosebud's in Deerfield on Tuesday 9/15/2020. It was absolutely, hands down, the best burger I have ever eaten. That is saying something as I figured out last night. I was using the discussion of the Rosebud's burger in conjunction with my propensity for eating burgers everywhere to attempt to teach my 2nd and 4th grader some math.....we determined I have eaten about 5,000 burgers in my lifetime. Rosebuds is heads and shoulders the stand out. Right when the burger came I noted that it was on a perfect Z-best style bun and it had the clear juices on top. I thought that it must be undercooked; I always order medium well and therefore never get a juicy burger. Well.... I bit into it and the juices were literally flowing down my face, absolutely piping hot. I had to give it a minute to cool. The burger was a PERFECT medium well, yet still amazingly juicy. I don't know how they did it! It was also massive and I was able to make two meals out of it. A HUGE serving of perfectly cooked fries to boot! I wish I had taken a photo, but it all happened so fast that....

Amazingness! Jerry Thank you for treating our family so well. The entire staff was great but Jerry took the cake, kind and super attentive. We loved the food with the cooks exquisite display of culinary pasión. Wine selection was quite impressive and extensive we appreciated that. Vegan friendly as we are on a newly recent vegan transition. We sat on the patio this time but futuristically we hope to dine inside. This place is definitely a Chicago staple within the community, traffic here is busy. There is a secure parking deck w/valet directly across the street, street parking too!

We celebrated our anniversary here during the pandemic. They were very careful, the staff was wearing a mask. The food was good and comes in big servings. Mostly good for two servings. The staff was friendly. We love our waiter's suggestion for dessert. (The carrot cake with a glass of milk.) We've tried it, and I think that was the best carrot cake in the area. Located in a prime location on Rush street. The food we ordered was very good too. Try the baked cavatelli if you're a fan of cheese. My hubby got a traditional meat lasagna, It was yummy too. I usually order prosecco for my drink but I've ordered a rose wine this time and I didn't like it. It was a bitter table wine. Hubby got a Moscow mule.
