Steakhouse
Gulf Coast style chophouse from Chef/Owner Jesse DeLeon. 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.

We had such a great experience at Rosewood. The service, food, and the ambiance were all 5 stars. We added this restaurant to the short list of places worth coming back!

I’ve never managed to have dinner hear for less than $100/person, but that might just be because the cocktails are good.

We had a wonderful time at Rosewood. Everything we ordered was well cooked and perfectly plated. The wedge salad was beautiful and the ribeye was quite possibly the best I’ve ever had. We ate too much and don’t regret it at all.

Solid. Pleasant staff. Great food (southern, meat heavy). Everything was dressed up with a creative touch while still being approachable, savory, delicious. A little pricy but not unreasonable. Was great for our date night. Would go again.

Very nice. The staff were great. A fairly limited menu with pretty high prices for what you get. At those prices, it would be nice to get some bread.

Lovely evening outdoors with friends celebrating a 70th bday. Waiter was engaging and knew the menu. The only item we had that seemed different than before was the ceasar salad. The dressing tasted so watered down it had little flavor. Everything else was wonderful.

Ceviche is tiny and overpriced at $15.

Odd presentation for pork chop, sliced like pork tenderloin and not very flavorful.

One of those places where when you leave you think, wow, that was pretty expensive for a meal that wasn’t that satisfying.

We had a great time! The server was so sweet! We said it was our anniversary and literally everyone was wishing us happy anniversary! It was so nice. The short rib, the tenderloin, and the duck confit queso were awesome. They even gave us a dessert on the house!

We had a fabulous time trying their unique dishes with a little Texas flare. The bone marrow and beef tartare was the stand out. I suggest luging a shot of mezcal down the bone, which our waitress recommended. It was so fun and an experience for out of town guests. Fried quails were also delicious! The house and live music was also great ambience.

We left a UT game early (blowout) and came over to Rosewood for our first visit there. It turned out that our server (Patine) had worked with me previously at Cured down in San Antonio. She was amazing, as was the rest of the staff at Rosewood. Excellent drinks and an Uber friendly bartender. The management was great, helping out with delivering our dishes and checking in on us. The chef even delivered some of our plates and visited with us for a bit. We split two starters: the biscuits and the duck confit white queso (heavenly!); and then split the beef tenderloin, which was perfectly cooked. They even gave us a flourless chocolate cake that was probably the best I’ve ever had. Exquisitely delicious. It’s situated in a beautiful East Austin house that is set on an unusually shaped large lot that has a large peninsular yard with patio seating under a trellis. The food, service and ambiance were incredible. I’ll definitely be returning.
