Steakhouse
Gulf Coast style chophouse from Chef/Owners Jesse DeLeon and Justin Payton. Located blocks from downtown, perched on the hill at the intersection of Rosewood Avenue and 11th Street in East Austin. Operating in the historic Haynes-DeLashwah House, built in 1890. The atmosphere progresses from lively to intimate from the boisterous setting of Rosewood’s eight-seat bar with full menu service, to the convivial spirit of the 12-table main room, to an intimate 12-seat private room, to the up-close experience of the eight-seat Chef’s Counter–reserved for only one nightly seating, only serving a multi-course tasting menu. The spacious decks and grand lawn are outfitted with a variety of settings, perfect for cocktails or outdoor dining. By using indigenous ingredients to create unexpected interpretations of childhood favorites and heartfelt references to coastal dishes and regional food staples, we hope our guests will feel entirely comfortable and curious, exploring our menu.

I always enjoy my time at Rosewood. The sunset from the patio on a warm night can't be beat.

It was good, the lights were pretty bright for nighttime eating so the ambiance wasn’t very romantic. We even asked our server and she said it couldn’t go any lower. Loved the ceviche and beef tartar. Desserts I wouldn’t get again..Really didn’t like them. If you’re going somewhere for ambiance I wanted it to be this place but I just couldn’t with how bright it was.

Service and food were spot on as always. We had the ceviche tostada and cauliflower appetizers which were amazing. The mile whole chicken and Denver steak entrees were perfectly cooked and exposing with flavor. And the chocolate peanut-butter pie was a perfect way to end the night.

Steak was cold. Appetizer was fair. Shrimp were really small. Overpriced for what it was.

Everything was great! The patio is nice and spacious, which during COVID is a personal must when considering dining options. The short rib and snapper were amazing entrees, and the grilled shrimp, ribs, and farm salad starters were delicious.

We always have a great time and great dinner at Rosewood. Outside is best! Great staff and great food. We love them.

They are also great at private events. We held one outside in early December and it exceeded our very high expectations. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Had the 4 course tasting meal. It was the best meal we've had in years! The gnocchi melted in your mouth and the tenderloin was flavorful and fork tender. We will definitely be back.

Incredible staff - remembered me from last time! The kitchen was great about accommodating my allergies for the set NYE menu (they’ve also been great about this when I’ve ordered off the regular menu). The food was delicious and the drinks were great. Tables were distanced from each other which made us feel safe. Great experience all around. Can’t wait to be back.

The food was amazing, the manager came and made sure the order for our children was correct and even did some special requests. The atmosphere was for children but an amazing place. Our server only came once other than that, excellent all around.

We love Rosewood. They've adapted very well to COVID and are one of the few places we feel safe dining out. Service is outstanding, and servers make great recommendations. The food is as good as ever (better than when it opened by a wide margin, in my opinion), and they are on top of their bar game. We've also gotten excellent recommendations for wine. We tried lots of dishes and all of them were excellent.

If you’re taking someone for a thank you and appreciation dinner please go to Rosewood! The service is fantastic and they help you make decisions if you’re not sure what you want… Happy hour is a great time to go and try mini happy hour appetizers. The food and the drinks and the dessert we’re all fabulous! Ben, our Server was a joy! Jeb, the manager is always there to make sure that you are happy. The burger, fries, fish tacos, tartare all perfection.

Excellent meal, and beautifully plated dishes. Only flaw was the temperature of the overall dish, which was not uniform. Some of my food was perfectly hot, but the sauce was really cold, which was a miss for the perfection of the plate.

There are 100 restaurants within 2 miles of this that are way better. The service was horrible. It took 45 minutes to get first round of drinks which included hot tea, one seltzer with lime, and ONE cocktail. We ordered two entrees and two shareable plates for three people. I ordered the blue crab and it was dropped on the table by someone who didn’t bother asking us if our food looked right. 15 minutes in I still didn’t have the proper tools to eat my crab with no one in sight so went at it with a steak knife until someone came by after I was almost done. That person didn’t ask anyone else how their food was. We didn’t get asked once if we needed a refill or more drinks, presumably because two of us are recovering and weren’t running up the tab with booze. We drank water the entire time and then still had to hunt someone down to bring us the $160 check for a nightmare of a birthday dinner. We had to get more food later and somehow I had to make good on getting a better dinner figured out for my partner’s birthday because this literally felt like we were sitting in the invisible bubble in someone’s mediocre front yard. I am not a complainer when it comes to service experiences because I’m in this field myself - but walking away from a $200 table with everyone hungry, sober, and late to their next engagement still has me stewing and I wish I’d spent that money at Laundrette, Contigo, justine’s or jacobys- a few of the other neighborhood restaurants that are far superior and not trying to pay for their big east side lot with $16 broccoli.
