Contemporary American
South Texas Cuisine from Chef/Owner Jesse DeLeon. Located blocks from downtown, Rosewood is 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 dining room, to an intimate 12-seat private dining room, to the up-close experience of the eight-seat Chef’s Counter. The spacious deck and grand lawn is 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.

Amazing food served in an old home with knowledgable wait staff at a fair price. The best food I've eaten in Austin. Bare table tops are a bit reminiscent of a pub, but otherwise I can find no fault. One of our group had a lactose intolerance and the chef worked with him to provide a great meal as well. Just Do It!!

We went for happy hour- we had to ask about the happy hour- the option wasn’t given to us automatically, so then we had to be reseated. The potatoes were great, the Texas caviar was pretty good. The hush puppies were pretty good too. The drinks were pretty ok. I heard the person making my drink asking for directions on how to make it and then it wasn’t very good and I had to send it back. I guess if you’re going to charge $9 for a happy hour drink, I expect you to know how to make it?

Anyway, all in all, a solid 4. Atmosphere is great.

Rosewood was exactly what we were looking for in a special date night! The food was delicious, full of carefully developed flavors and excellently executed. We loved each course of the tasting menu. The service was well-paced, our server was knowledgeable and we felt well-cared for. We were seated in a bar next to the kitchen and it was really fun for us to watch the food being made. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to others!!!

This place is great. If you want a high-end meal in a historic setting look no further. Their menu is small but allows for a group of any size to order plenty and have an amazing meal. Order the shrooms and carrots. You'll find some of the best dishes I've ever had here. Definitely will be returning.

The food was amazing, little disappointed they ran out of the fish and having never been to this restaurant wasn't going to pay $200 for a steak. The bartender destroyed our entire evening and I do appreciate the manager talking with us but the damage was done and to drop the money we did on small plates it was not worth it. Our server was amazing and it was a shame she was caught in the middle. The restaurant has potential but you can't step above the other restaurants if you hire people like their bartender. I wish them well in their growth and hope they make the right choices.

I've been to Rosewood a few times for dinner, but this was my first time for brunch. The service and food are outstanding each time, and the weather was perfect for sitting out on the lawn, enjoying mimosas and eating all the things. We met the owner and had a server (Ben) we'd had before. Rosewood is starting to feel like the place where you enjoy seeing familiar faces while feasting on delicious food + drinks. Highly recommend.

The a la carte menu has been shortened considerably, with a tasting menu added. Most of the food was outstanding, though some dishes, e.g. ceviche, had so much heat that it overpowered the high quality and freshness of the other ingredients. Our server pushed the most expensive options.
