Not a bad place to meet for breakfast, although the place taughts itself as an Irish bar I would just call this a pub. Decent food and a good selection of beers. Our server was friendly and apologized for the bar service which was slow. Our food portions were plentiful and the eggs were delicious, you can taste when they... More

Rare to find a bar that a bar that actually appreciates that there are much better beers in Ireland than Guinness. Smithwicks, Murphies (so much better than the famous one). Disappointingly no 1903 on draft or bottle, guess that's not arrived in US yet! There are authentic Irish dishes to be had. Nice place!

Nothing good to report about it either I'm afraid. The best thing I can say for it was the sweet potato fries were alright. The place turned into a nightclub in the middle of our meal.

Visited it with my girls and really enjoyed it. Located on Santana row - it's a great place to visit. Atmosphere is nice, food was very delicious. I recommend to try Salmon - it was the best salmon in my life. Also Lychee martini is awesome! They have party's so you can dance. Overall great experience.

The food was good, but more along California style than Irish. Actually about the only Irish about it was the name and the Guiness. No traditional Irish music ever. karaoke and hiphop, I'm told, otherwise DJ pop.

I usually seek out an Irish pub in every city. I found this one on trendy Santana Row. The clientele is mostly trendy young'uns, gathering for drinks and the food, either on the outside on couches or cafe tables, or inside in more pub-like surroundings. I liked it, choosing to eat outside, where service was friendly and quick. My go-to... More

This is a very nice Irish Pub. Good selection of drinks, nice bar if you want to stop in for a beer. The best part is the food, they have an excellent Bison Burger !

Three of us were there on a Thursday night, by default as the restaurant we intended going to was busy & there was a wait to get a table, so my hungry & thirsty companions elected we not wait & head to Rosie's, the Guinness was a calling. It was nice to have white tablecloths & table service in a... More

Visited this place several times and ws never that impressed. It's a fine restaurant/bar I guess. They have beer and liquor and most of the clientele there looks for nothing more. It is loud though and the drinks are expensive. Part of the dining floor is converted into a dance floor at night, there is also a DJ at night.... More

We did our company Christmas Dinner / "Mini-Party" here (mini because we had our full Christmas party the next night at the Convention Center). Excellent food, service and the party was great... We had karaoke and had a great time!

Description
Casual dining in an elegant atmosphere. Try one of our traditional Irish pub favorites such as Shepherd's Pie, Bangers and Mash, or Fish & Chips. Or you may opt for a tender Angus Filet or New York Steak or our Grilled Wild Salmon over garlic mashed potatoes and sauteed spinach in a jalapeno Aioli. Or drop in for lunch and enjoy a 1/2 pound Rosie Burger and a pint of Guinness. Great food and Fantastic signature cocktails all served with a generous helping of Irish hospitality. Voted Best New Restaurant in the 2004 Wave Magazine Readers Choice Awards. Three Stars from Shelia Himmell of the San Jose Mercury News.
