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.

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.

Lovely experience! We especially loved the bone marrow & salad appetizers- the scalloped potatoes with the strip were crazy delicious!

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.

Amazing meal on a beautiful patio! We started with the beautifully seasoned ribs, enjoyed a charcuterie board with chicken liver mousse to die for! And shared the best marbled, most tender strip steak we’ve ever had! Can’t wait to return!

We had an amazing dinner at Rosewood for our first restaurant visit since the pandemic started. The host graciously delivered on our request for a secluded table outdoors - we had a perfect spot away from all the other tables under the canopy (which were also well-spaced), and the staff at every turn was fantastic, from the manager to the servers to the bus staff. The food was amazing; we had gulf shrimp, oysters, heirloom tomato salad, wagyu strip and red snapper. They bragged a bit about the the banana pudding so we tried it for dessert, and it was incredible. The whole experience was worth it even if just for the banana pudding. 6/5 stars if we could, and we are already looking forward to our next meal at Rosewood.

Delicious food, lovely people. We ate late so unfortunately they ran out of some dishes but great experience regardless. Plenty of COVID safe outdoor seating. Not exactly cheap but worth the treat, would definitely eat here again.

Exquisite food, beautiful setting.

We ended up getting a selection of small plates to share instead of mains. Tasted great, stuff that would be really hard to make at home.

Beautiful building and patio area. The service was fantastic and only rivaled by the delicious food. We shared the shrimp campanacha (spelling?), tempura eggplant and smoked pork chop. All were great but the generous portioned smoked pork chop stole the show. I look forward to going back again.

Had a reservation for 8pm but didn’t get seated until 8:45. Ordered drinks when we checked in and never got them. Had to ask 3 times where they were. Finally arrived so we said go ahead and order rounds 2 & 3!

The outdoor seating was quite amazing. We enjoyed the drinks; however, would not return for the food. We enjoyed the ceviche as an appetizer, but the poutine and ribs were not very good. I hate to give a poor review because we really enjoyed the ambience. Great place to have a drink!

This was my first time and Rosewood blew my expectations. The dishes were super creative and the way the flavors were presented was impressive... like the pico de gallo raspada the ceviche sat on (think shaved ice that tastes like pico) or the beef tartare sitting on the hot bone marrow that created a nice experience of hot & cold. The staff was incredible and I will definitely be a regular.
