It was my birthday brunch with friends.

The food was great.

Read was looking after our table, and his service was outstanding!

Amazing food! Server was honestly odd and forgetful but we are a good spirited group and did not let it bother us. Must try the churros!

Rosalinda was an okay dining experience. Interior is gorgeous. The margarita pitcher is $85 and basically comes in a big jar of solid ice, and my party of 3 had less than 2 glasses each. The appetizers are decent. Service was pretty quick and server was nice but made a weird comment about tipping when we tipped 20%, so not sure what to think about that. Probably will not return.

The server brought out our meals and one was not what we ordered which caused a delay. Food was good and the restaurant is very nice.

We let our server choose a selection of wine and memufor us, including the burger. Unbelievable how flavourful all of the food was. The staff was wonderfully attentive. Made our visit one to remember. Thank you.

Was made to feel uncomfortable by the server out entire meal. Felt uneasy and unwelcome- no recommendations based on my allergies instead a comment that “wow, that’s the whole menu”. I work as a server as well and have quite a high tolerance for mistakes and mishaps- but I was wholeheartedly disappointed by the experience. The food was excellent but the service terrible.

Rosalinda is an amazing vegan Mexican restaurant with delicious entree and appetizer options. The dessert menu was also incredible. Try the sweet potato cake with cherry, pistachio, coconut and avocado.

The waitstaff seemed confused regarding the menu. The kitchen was very slow. Very spicy food wasn't labeled as spicy, causing problems.

Got the burger and grilled sweet potato. Burger tasted really good and the potato was cooked perfectly and presented neatly.

One of the very best vegan restaurants I've been to! The food was outstanding and our server Read was very knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. He made our night feel very special. We will definitely be back!!

We had booked at 6.15 so that we might eat before attending the ballet. We arrived on time. We were seated on time. The service was good - both timing and attitude. Good food: interesting; sensible portions. We'll go back. Next time we'll book for 6pm rather than 6.15. (The ballet starts at 7.30pm.) Go! You'll like it.

Not being a Vegan but having eaten here before on business, I decided to bring my wife, who loves this style of food and she was very impressed with not only the food but the quick service and the interior design. a great night but for the local event parking fees in force for the Hockey!

Was an interesting take on mexican/south american food with the vegan twist. The ceviche was particularly wonderful. They were also able to accommodate my rather difficult black pepper allergy. The food was surprisingly spicy, but tasty, so perhaps not for everyone.

Went to Rosalinda with a party of 3. The food was flavourful and delicious! A wonderful selection of dishes, all at reasonable prices. Each dish was brought out individually, and the service was wonderful!
Everything was timely, from the pouring of drinks to the presentation of our food.
The server was knowledgeable, and quick with answers to any questions we had.
Can't wait to eat there again!

Food was great - service was really slow. Took 25min for us to get our drinks and a bottle of water for the table. Felt like the server was actively avoiding us

The restaurant is quite lovely; it's clean, spacious and airy with large windows and comfortable furniture. We were seated in an area where the tables were rather close together making it a little difficult to have a private conversation. The staff is super friendly, smiling and helpful providing advice on our lunch options. The food is wonderful. Fresh ingredients, bold flavour combinations and a diverse menu deliver something for everyone. We were a party of two, one vegan one not, and we both enjoyed the food immensely. I can't wait to return to try other dishes!

Food is delicious. Amazing. The wait staff is great. I’ve been there a number of tines and will go back. But...one thing that I will mention: their welcoming/reception system during busy times is painful and disrespectful to customers. You will be ignored if the phone rings. (The front staff member said they are trained to answer the phone as a priority over waiting customers - who were literally ignored for as many phone calls as came in.) They really need to overhaul their reception management and redesign their training for that. Once they fix that front reception issue, they would get 5 stars. It’s that great.

I have been to your restaurant many times now, including for a company event. My first several visits were mindbogglingly amazing. But I have had poor service, which you were kind enough to acknowledge with a gift card. I have come back twice more, and I have to share that the food is not as good. The table next to us had the same feedback - great before but not to great now. I keep coming back because of my earlier experiences but don't think I will return or recommend you to others in the future.

Second time at this restaurant and it’s incredible! I am flexitarian but my friend is a vegan so I took her as she was visiting from out of town - she absolutely loved it and I would pick it over meat any day

Churros and the eggplant are a must, the jackfruit tacos are amazing but pretty spicy so if you don’t love spice get the “chorizo” ones that were also really tasty and much milder. Last time I came we also had the tostadas and mango cake - tostadas taste amazing but are hard to eat and not good for sharing, the mango cake is awesome

Can’t wait to come back!

Rosalinda was a beautiful space for a delicious meal! We went for brunch on a Sunday but it wasn't overly crowded or loud, perfect for catching up with friends. The food was delicious even though none of us were vegan we all enjoyed it enormously. A great place to eat near Union station that won't break the bank! I will definitely be back!

Meh. Nice space. Enchiladas were bland and dried out. And not very filling. My friend had French toast which seemed better.

Feel like the portion/rate ratio could be a bit better; price point was a bit too high for the amount of food served. Also there could be more taco/tostada options

Repeat customers. Food and service were all good. Roasted sweet potato included sauce that was a bit hotter than expected - would be good to know that when ordering. The charred corn is a great dish but a bit messy to eat.....be helpful if there were tongs or something to hold the corn so it can be eaten more easily.

As someone trying to move to a more Vegan/Vegetarian lifestyle it was so nice to know high quality restaurants like this exist. Food was really great and loved the environment. If you think the vegan lifestyle is all earthy and hippie think again. This place was trendy, fun and worthy of a date night!

Although the food was very good, I was a little surprised to still be charged for my husband's birthday dessert. We ordered a lot of food and drinks and on the reservation I had indicated that it would be nice if they could do something small as a birthday surprise. So they brought out churros with a candle...but then put it on the bill. I have never experienced this at another restaurant...very odd.

I’ve been to rosalinda many times in the past and each time has been an experience I’d strongly recommend to my friends. This time something was definitely off.
We had many servers bring us food that we didn’t order throughout our entire time there.
Our glasses were filthy.
Our order was wrong. And something we ordered never came.
The server made up for it by bringing us free drinks and taking the cost of 2 of the dishes off our bill. Thankful for that! Just thought this should be made aware because it seemed like the Sunday crew were a bit off their game.

I would recommend because good choice of vegan food but I would warn them about the loud noise & somewhat slow service. Even though we had a reservation, we had to wait several minutes to be seated. Still, enjoyed my meal & would order it again.
