Service was slow and non attentive. Food was very good. We had the tots, grilled portabello, kids pancakes and kids egg plate. It was great having both breakfast and lunch options for kids. The kids portions were very generous for the price, great value. Coffee was average at best. Creamer came in a glass that poured everywhere while trying to pour it. Atmosphere was very nice. Overall it was good but not outstanding.

This is definitely a positive addition to our neighborhood restaurant scene. A perfect spot for lunch, and a great go-to for an easy upscale casual dinner. It’s difficult to make salmon fabulous, but the way it was prepared was crave-worthy. Crispy on the outside, moist and flaky on the inside. I will be back to order that dish again. Well-done, Rosedale kitchen and bar!

We were pleasantly surprised. More unique menu than your average brunch, super attentive service, great wine list.

The lump crab Benedict could have used a smidge more seasoning but it was high quality and fresh.

The fruity pebble French toast was a big surprise - really creamy and decadent and delicious. A much more sophisticated flavor profile than I would have initially expected.

Happy campers.

Our hostess refused to seat us (with reservations requesting a window seat) near a window, even though many 2 tops remained near the windows. She immediately seated the couple of ladies behind us (who she appeared to be friends with). How insulting. Service should be the cornerstone of your offering, not an optional offering based on something other than all customers being equal.

Crispy chicken and all veggies were excellent. Wine selections were above average and importantly prices were reasonable across the board. Effort by staff, management and ownership is apparent.

I think with time Rosedale Kitchen can be better than good. The brunch menu offered something for everyone's mood. Like so many Austin places though, it has good food at Fine Dinning prices. They have my empathy in that I'm sure it's tough to offer competitive pricing when the rent in Austin for new restaurants makes it difficult to not charge crazy prices. However, my argument is the same as it was when this restaurant group tried the first time with Guild. Why am I going to pay high prices for good food when I can go a few blocks down and get incredible food offerings at Uchiko for what Guild charged and now Rosedale Kitchen.

We sat at the bar, and it didn't seem like they were too busy, but it took awhile for someone to acknowledge us. However, once we got served, the bartender was attentive. I had one of the best pork chops I've ever had and my husband liked his burger. Very nice decor & ambiance w/a nice patio. I can see having a happy hour or girls night here too.

We had a party of eight. We were seated promptly and immediately our server was there. Food came out quickly but not too quickly so that the appropriate amount of time was allowed for a leisurely meal. Food and service was fantastic. Chef visited our table to check on our satisfaction and manager substituted a higher quality bottle of wine at the same price as our original selection because they were out of it. Great evening at a great restaurant, chef and serving crew.
The only recommendation I would make is that the restaurant is noisy as a result of a very attractive design of hard surfaces. I would suggest some sound absorbing or deflector material or barriers be added.
Great place and would highly recommend.

Our first time here- we had the Lavender Martinis to start- wonderful- Arugula Salad followed by the Fried Chicken and the Waygu steak-everything was very good- we substituted sides from another entree without any problems. Our server, I think her name is Rebecca, was outstanding- great attentive service-very knowledgeable and provided good recommendations. I will definitely be eating here again.

Love love the grilled cauliflower. Complex flavors and beautifully presented. On second visit I ordered it again. Husband got the fish stew — also fabulously delish. I saw lovely plates of meat leaving the kitchen— nicely crisp on outside, but will have to try another time. Service was top-shelf perfect on first visit, and less so on return, but I think our waiter was in training, so understandable. Prices are reasonable for quality, portions generous and the decor has a relaxed not-too-fussy feel—though still very stylish and open. Fine for everyday dining but also for a special night out. Yes, I would recommend!!

Great food and wonderful service. The beet salad and the crispy crabs are great shareable starters. The poke bowl with tuna was to die for! Awesome fish and a perfect portion. The pork belly btl is both crispy and flavorful. I wish I save room for dessert. The table next to mine order several. They all looked beautiful and they must be good since no one was talking just enjoying. Congrats to Jenelle, Chris and the team for creating an awesome experience.

The place is cute and the food was delicious but still have some things to work out. We were sat 30 minutes after our reservation time. At some point, our server changed - I guess because our original server left, but no one said anything and we waited a while for the next person to come around. I think there is a lot of potential, but disappointed by the service.

I had higher expectations given its overall rating. The host was very friendly. Overall the food and service was fair. The salmon dish over Asian noodle was over over cooked and a bit bland. The beer and goat cheeses shareable appetizer was good albeit a tad small. It seemed like some of the staff was more concerned with closing tasks than anything else.

Rosedale is one of our neighborhood favorites. Great for families or just the two of us having a drink. Lots of options without being overwhelming and unfocused. We celebrated my daughter’s birthday and the staff made it extra special. Also, the seasonal Honeydew sorbet was so amazing that my kiddos were stealing bites from me even though they had the awesome brownie sundae.
