Restaurant was beautiful inside, and the chilaquiles and roasted eggplant were delicious. But service was slow and the food was too expensive for what it was. I'm glad I tried it once but I won't come back and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else

Very nice vegan Mexican food. More tacos on the brunch menu - I miss them with the last menu change.

Sadly, no. We didn't like the vegan food. We had the ceviche at the National Ballet's Mad Hot Ballet which was SO good it inspired us to have dinner there. But we are not vegans and found the food odd and not to our liking. Sorry.

The food was good. But I don’t think the value for the price was there. The flavours really didn’t pop for me. And there was seemingly one paste (Or a similar one) in three of the 5 of our dishes. The food was tasty - just didn’t blow me away, and didn’t convince me I was being offered some thing so radically different than I could find on a good vegan blog. Restaurant itself was very nice. Wait staff was excellent.

I was expecting good food that pairs with the value and that wasn’t the case. Food was overpriced and regular taste. The portions extremely small and taste was below average. I was very disappointed.

Brought an out of town friend to Rosalinda to enjoy lunch. Made a reservation but the restaurant was mostly empty. The fire alarm went off and we were told that we could not order food as the kitchen staff needed to be evacuated outside during the alarm. Understandable! Drinks could still be ordered though. Ordered a beer for myself and my friend off the lunch menu, was happy to see the $5 drink special for Ace Hill Light. When the alarms were quieted, ordered several plates to share and were happy with every bite. When the bill came, was surprised our 2 beers came to $17. Asked our server who said she poured us "the big glasses" and as such, billed us full price. Not sure why she would do this given we ordered off the drink special menu, did not ask for the full glasses and were not told we were being given the larger size. Also found it surprising when she would not adjust the bill - given it was her assumption that caused the higher price point and also that we sat in a restaurant with a fire alarm going off for over 10 minutes, with no assurance when/if it would stop and be able to order food. Will definitely think twice before booking there again given this experience with the service, which was unexpected at a higher end restaurant.

This is my second visit to Rosalinda. Our server recommended the veggie fritters and jackfruit pibil taco to start and then we ordered the Rosaburger to share and finished with the mango cake. Yummy!

My friend was very pleased with our meal and is taking another friend there.

Great food and service. I recommend it!

Maybe I would recommend to a friend tho with a warranting that the mixed salad is actually a ‘kale’ salad which I don’t like particularly love and if it had been added to the ingredients listed to create it, I would not have ordered for brunch. It was my main so I ate it.

What a fabulous, unexpected evening! We had a vegetarian friend in town and I wanted a fun restaurant that had great veg options for him. I was pretty underwhelmed by what many surrounding restos offered, so decided to try RosaLinda (and not tell my carnivore husband). To my delight (and surprise) he liked it almost more than our friend did.

fabulous atmosphere and decor, outstanding, very flavorful food, terrific service, eccletic and very varied clientele. The burger was so-so, but everything else we had was sooooooo yummy!

Can’t wait to go back.

My sister and I had just landed from Ottawa, and were hungry for a healthy lunch. The server assisting us, our hostess, everyone serving our food were all incredibly helpful. I elbowed my glass over, while I still had a quarter of my drink left, and I was offered a sample of a beer they had on tap once my mess was promptly cleaned. They were so sweet and helpful. The decor is beautiful, serene and the music is so chill. Highly, highly, highly recommend.

The server seemed like she was annoyed with us. This dinner had been noted to be a special occasion in our reservation, but nothing was done in that regard to make it special. The food tasted much the same, and my partner got sick that night after eating there. For a $100 meal, I don't think the food was worth it. It seemed like this was a vegetarian Mexican restaurant having a crisis of identity - not quite Mexican, but not quite fusion either (a burger? cripsy tofu bowl? Hmm). Ambience and drinks were great.

We had chosen the restaurant as one of the group was vegan, but that friend couldn't join us in the end. However, the rest of really enjoyed the meal. Getting the chef to choose what we were to eat was the best idea as we would never have chosen as well. Delicious!

Jackfruit tacos were spicy! Tasted ok but wouldn’t order it again.
The coconut ceviche was yummy 😋 & would recommend it.
The chocolate mousse dessert was yummy too!

Add on fries to the burger were delicious. The bean burger seemed ok. My friend had it but didn’t say whether she liked it but she didn’t finish it.

Service was slow but friendly.

Great food that was fresh and delicious. I think the waitstaff was short staffed since it was the first end of the night and the music was way too loud, so it was that much harder to get anyone’s attention.

Had 2 lunches and 2 dinners over the span of a week at Rosalinda so yes, I was very very pleased. There is no lack of great options in Toronto but but their food and service is way up there! And the food is plant based. :-). I will be back for sure.
