Yet again the people at The Rose Plantation outdid themselves. The food was superb, withe chef introducing every dish, and the accompanying wines were divine, and perfectly suited to the food.

I grew up 18 miles from Manhattan and then moved to Atlanta. I've been accustomed to access to fine dining all my life. The Rose Plantation provided the best dining experience I've ever had!  Wonderful and perfect service, magnificent food. Have the crab, you will not regret a single bite.
