After going to this place, I really had to wonder why all nice restaurants don't try and match their food with beer. This place obviously treats beer with as much respect as wine, and for that it has my respect [and my money...I will go back every time I visit LV].
Place is easy to find and only about a 15 minute drive from the strip. Had to wait about 10 minutes after our reservation time for a table, but no big deal.
The atmosphere was too busy and noisy for a high end restaurant. Most importantly, our table was much too close to the other tables. It made it impossible to avoid the conversations of the people next to us. I understand it is a small place, but for a high end restaurant the atmosphere could be more relaxing.
Service was excellent. The waiter and the "bus boy" [I'm sure he wasn't, but not sure of his title] were very informative and responsive. The bus boy was in constant motion and quickly met our ever need. Obviously, this place puts a premium on service and has a very well trained staff.
While the beer selection is not huge, it is huge for a high end restaurant. One page of Belgians and another page of various brews. Menu lists a beer selection with each item, very nice. I went with a Hopf Helle Weise with the appetizers of BBQ Shrimp and the Carpaccio [not the menu selection, but I felt like drinking a Weise]. Both appetizers were excellent. For the main menu, I had the veal and the recommended Sam Smith's Nut Brown. Perfect match. My wife had the Crispy Bass, which had a very salty sauce [only negative].
Price fix menu was $48. Chef also sends out a free sample of something for appetizer and dessert, a very nice touch. Also, the beer was poured in the beer's glass and poured perfectly.
Overall, the best place I have ever been that combines excellent food with excellent beer. Truly, the only high end restaurant I know of that gives beer the respect it deserves. I highly recommend going to Rosemary's. You won't be dissapointed.

CLOSED July 2011.
Too bad, since it was a great place to match beer with great food.
Google the restaurant name and Las Vegas if you want to confirm the closing.
Rest of this post is filler (to meet BA requirement of 500 character minimum)...

I went to Rosemary's on a tip from Hoser.
The restaurant is located far from the strip in a suburban strip mall. Upon entering the restaurant we were shown to our table by a hostess and sat at the table by two servers, wow that is what you call service. The beer menu is very good for a higher end restaurant that one would expect to only see a good wine menu. The beer menu can be viewed from their website. I ordered the five course beer pairing menu. Every beer and food pairing was perfect. I believe that it was six ounces of beer for every course, which does not sound like a lot but once you go through five courses its definitely enough. The service is of military precision, friendly and knowledgeable. The food is excellent, the cuisine is very refined. Rosemary's is definitely not your meat and potatoes type of joint, I found the portions to be of perfect size. It's not a cheap restaurant but you definitely get what you pay for.

This was the highlight of my recent trip to Las Vegas. Unassumingly located in a strip mall, this place proves the old adage to never judge a book by its cover.
As you enter, you will see a cozy bar. The larger than expected dining rooms are located behind the bar room.
They have a large and well thought out beer list with an emphasis on offerings from Belgium or their US counterparts. They list a short description of the beer and the ABV. This was the best beer list I encounter while in Vegas.
The food is fantastic. I started with a BBQ shrimp appetizer that was served over blue cheese coleslaw. I then had the wilted spinach salad and then had a perfectly seasoned and cooked prime rib eye. Desert was more beer and a yummy crème brule.
Note they suggest both wine & beer pairings on their menu.
Service was incredibly professional and the meal was well spaced.
Pricey but worth it!
I really recommend you try this place!

Located in a non descript strip mall. Inside though it is very nice, white linen table cloths. Pretty fancy. More of a restaurant than a bar. Bar has about 20 seats. Great happy hour special. Half price drinks and appetizers. A small but well thought out list of Belgian beers. Knowledgable staff. You can buy some discounted gift cards at costco, either locally or online $100 for just $80 that helps with the price, can be used for both beer and food. Awesome food. They do a fixed price dinner with either beer pairings or wine pairings. They also have really good bloddy marys-made with their own homemade tomato sauce for a change of pace.

A- Restaurant is dimly lit. There is a food bar where you sit in front of the Chefs that are cooking... very cool. There is a bar right in the front.
Q- In terms of beer, they do things right. I was served an Orval in an Orval glass and a Chimay Red in a Chimay glass.
S- They offer 5 star service. They will make sure you are always pleased.
S- A very nice beer list, put together thoughtfully to pair with their food. Lots of European brews on here, only a handful of American.
F- I'd like to see anyone ever complain about their food. I had the 3 course prix fixe meal, filled me up and then some. I was sorry I couldn't finish my veal tenderloin.
V- It's one of the more expensive restaurants, but a great time anyway. For price references, a bottle of orval is $12 and I think the Rochefort 8 is the same. Chimay Red is around $10 or 12.

A very expensive cab from the strip delivered us to this restaurant located in a small strip shopping center. We had reservations (a must) but arrived early and sat at the bar. I had a
Popperings Hommel Ale and my wife had a Manhattan. The bar tender was attentive and pleasant and was handling a full bar and lounge very easily. We were moved to our table and had 2 very helpful waiters, both top notch. Dinner was excellent with a pairing of 2 appetizers and the suggested Schoenramer pils then a fillet of beef with a great Cabernet. My wife had a fish from the evening specials and enjoyed her wine pairing as well. Desert and coffee then they arranged for a cab back to the hotel. We were able to share the appetizers, salad, and desert. It was Wednesday which is lady's night so her meal was discounted as well. A great evening for us both.

Really great restaurant that gives good focus on quality beer. I consider Rosemary's to be one of the best restaurants in Vegas off the strip and I believe it has been voted the best restaurant off the strip by Vegas residents recently. They have a lot of Belgian or Belgian style beer and try to pair it up with the food which is pricey, but excellent. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the obvious upscale restaurant vibe. The food is certainly the focus here but they've done a good job offering good beer with it.

Stopped in here with my wife for a few beers and appetizers, based on other reviews and a desire to get off of the strip.
Great place overall. They really get the art of pairing great food and great beer, as an alternative to their excellent food/wine pairings. The atmosphere is an upscale restaurant (the prices reflect this) with a small bar area in the front. Service was friendly and inviting, we were underdressed so we headed for the bar. The attentive bartender said we would have been welcome in the dining area despite our casual attire.
The beer is Belgian focused, only 3 taps (Chimay, Blanche de Bruxells, and Muadite), with at least 20+ other quality Belgian/German bottles available in proper glassware.
Food was excellent but pricey. We had two "half plates" that averaged $13 each, but bread was included, and the bartender/chef gave us unsolicited complementary taste samples of an appetizer and desert.
Despite the high prices, if I were a local resident, I would probably be a regular customer, and that is the highest compliment I can give.

Owners Michael and Wendy Jordon have a goldmine here that is largely undiscovered by the traveler to Vegas, but well known to the locals.
It is far enough from the strip that most conventioneers don't go there, which can be good if you are weary from the show floor.
I consider this to be one of the best restaurants in the U.S., definately the best in Vegas. Excellent food, always changing menu, beer infused dishes and beer paired diners (wine also). Head beer (and wine) guru Mike Shetler knows his beers and will lead you down the beer trail during your dinner.
I have eaten here over a dozen times and every time is an excellent experience. I recommend everything on the menu; but always enjoy the beer infused dishes paired with the recommended beers.
