A fine establishment located in the financial district of downtown Toronto with a classic array of dishes to choose from on their menu. Before I begin my review of the dining experience here, I want to say that this was a feature of my Summerlicious 2013 tour and with that let’s begin!
Salmon Gravlax: A delicate piece of salmon that is lightly herbed and seasoned, the apple and fennel salad complimented the fish very well as the flavours played up the salmon flavour.
Seared Mahi Mahi: A disappointment. The Mahi Mahi was over salted and spoke poorly of the execution of the dish. The olive dressing that was used for the artichoke hearts and sweet peppers overpowered the flavours of the ingredients and it turned into a salty base for the over-salted fish.
Triple Chocolate Terrine: A delightful dessert with a classic combination of flavours between chocolate and raspberries. There was an interesting play of density between the different layers of chocolate with the white chocolate layer being significantly lighter than the dark chocolate.
I tend to be very picky with the servers and the one that served me that day at Rosewater did not seem to be very enthusiastic especially when I asked him for recommendations from the cocktail menu. After telling me that Rosewater can make any cocktail I desired, I decided to just go with their Strawberry Mojito (no thanks to the server).
That tasted quite good actually and a great beverage to go along with the main.
Overall, I give this place a 7/10, the execution of the fish really hurt the grading and something that should not have happened even with the Summerlicious factor. Would I visit Rosewater again? Perhaps, but not during Summerlicious.
Until next time,
