Rosemary’s Restaurant Restaurant Review, Las Vegas
Posted by Foodnut.com
Rosemary’s has Closed.
Rosemary’s Restaurant in Las Vegas is the first off the strip independent restaurant, that we have been to. It is located about 20 minutes from the Strip and has been top rated in Zagat’s for years. They serve ‘French-inspired, creative American cuisine with regional twists from New Orleans, the Deep South and the Midwest.’ We went for lunch and took advantage of the $28 three course prix fix menu.
Decor, Vibe – Located in a non descript strip mall, one step inside and you’ll see nice decor with lots of paintings on the wall. Locals in their 30′s to 50′s were mostly eating lunch, with the only tourists ourselves.

Dry Aged Beef & Maytag Blue Cheese Carpaccio ($13) with Arugula & Granny Smith Apple Salad, Candied Walnuts & port wine drizzles was a beautiful dish. The flavors of the cheese and beef blended perfectly. The salad was a fresh combination of fruit and greens with a light dressing.
Arugula, Endive & Radicchio Salad ($11) with Maytag Blue Cheese, Riesling Poached Pear, Toasted Hazelnuts & Port Wine Syrup was very good and pretty big. Fresh greens and some decent cheese.
Pan Seared Hawaiian Mahi Mahi ($19) on a Bed of Julienne Vegetables with Fresh Citrus Supremes, Riesling Gastrique & a Citrus Vinaigrette had 2 large pieces of perfectly cooked tender fish. The vegetables below had a wonderful citrusy sauce mixed in.
Parmesan tossed Angel Hair Pasta ($17) with Sautéed Green Vegetables, Toasted Pistachios, Basil Pesto & Parmesan Cream Sauce had some pretty thin noodles and a nice medium creamy sauce. Lots of fresh veggies on top, which is good for a change.
Soy Marinated Bistro Filet Kabobs ($19) with a Fingerling Potato, Prosciutto & Wild Mushroom Hash, Micro Greens & Caramelized Shallot Reduction Sauce had 2 good sized skewers of super tender meat with some pretty strong sauce. Potatoes were good and did not really need any prosciutto.
Hazelnut Goat Cheese Cheesecake ($9) with Scotch Caramel Sauce was recommended by our waitress. It did not disappoint. The cheesecake was smooth and delicious.
Chocolate Mousse special ($9) was amazing. The Chocolate was not too sweet or bitter. The whipped cream was super light and airy.
Rosemary’s Restaurant was a pleasant surprise. Away from the neon lights, they serve excellent food at excellent prices, especially for lunch. Even their fresh buns are tasty. Service really surprised us. It was top notch and some of the best we’ve had in a long time. Refills, napkin folding, special requests, were automatically done. If you want fine food and some time away from the crazy Strip, eat at Rosemary’s.
Lunch is a great deal here. You can also save money by purchasing $100 in dining certificates for $79.99 at Las Vegas Costco’s stores.
