Rosemary and Thyme is one of those exceptional smaller restaurants that definitely punches above its weight. From the delicious food, to the attentive and classy service, to the quiet excitement of a casual ambience, it is not only a value for its quality, but also for its price point — a true bargain that is, in the opinion of this reviewer, about 25% underpriced for what it offers. Having travelled around the world and dined at numerous venues, Rosemary and Thyme is definitely one of my keeper restaurants!

The food was wonderful. Because of slow downs in the kitchen food service was pretty bad. We didn’t finish our 7 o’clock reservation until 10 o’clock. I think we were probably about an hour longer than will be reasonable. Though, the food was wonderful and the prices can’t be beat.

Well I come back, definitely.

Lovely restaurant, with comfortable seating. Very busy, but we were attentively given updates as our table was prepared and food was prepared. The service is on par with a formal restaurant, but very friendly with no rush. There were so many food choices, and they were havin their $39.99 Savor Sarasota special that we have never seen one with that many choices. Everything brought to our table was excellent. Osso bucco was fall apart tender, a huge serving of meatloaf, and perfectly cooked fish. Dessert was also well done. Delightful, slow paced dining at its best!

Rosemary & Thyme never fails to provide a fine dining experience, wonderful food, great deals on wine (Caymus 1 liter for 1/2 price!), and attentive friendly service. Host Jeffery is the epitome of welcoming front-of-house, and our waiter remembered our group (2 couples) from the two previous visits! What a treat!!

Summer prefixe menu offers wonderful choices and delicious fare. The courtyard is lit beautifully, complete with fans to cool our Sarasota evenings, and discreet bug zappers to quell an annoying intruder. Great evening!

We enjoyed another delightful dinner outside on the patio at Rosemary & Thyme last night. We love the prix fixe menu, especially the newly-added entree specials that provide more variety to the menu.

great value
the three course, fixed price dinner for $39 is not the usual skimpy number of mediocre choices. Several kinds of steak, lots of high end sea food are offered. Service is excellent and the outdoor scene is lovely. wish they could get quieter fans, though.

This was a great birthday occasion with you and we chose after we have really enjoyed previous nights with you.With a small recommendation for you which my wife and I had the shrimp cake because it was not up to par. Too cooked and we didn’t like it. We suggest a better alternative. Everything and the food, our server, and the ambiance deserves 5 stars!
Thanks. Nick Gladding

Another first class dining Experience at The Rosemary and Thyme. Burnt ends taco was spot on. Great guacamole and homemade hot sauce. Escargots were perfect and piping. The wedge and Caesar were equally refreshing and crisp. The Shrimp scampi, filet, and grilled tomahawk pork chop were raved about. Thank you to Julio for an exceptional experience. Looking forward to coming back… again!

Rosemary and Thyme is regularly quite expensive, however over the summer they have a fixed price menu--3 courses $39. It's a great opportunity to get the full affect of an outstanding area restaurant without paying full price.
