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.

This restaurant is in a historic home with modern decor. It has a very usual menu. The dessert was the best.

service lacks in many restaurants in austin but this was most certainly not the case here. great service, great food. a bit pricey for quantity on a couple items but outstanding flavor from this chef & kitchen. also, there are noise dampening panels that are both easy on the eyes and the ears...makes for a cozy and tasty experience.

Overall it was a good experience.
Pricey for the small bites and very slow service. They brought in the food way before the bottle of wine and they brought us the wrong one! So even longer wait... so food got cold!
Great gem in Austin and historical “landmark” per day. Good ambience. Very loud speakers in patio with music no so great for the kind of night we wanted to experience

We had such a great experience celebrating our anniversary here. Everything was first class. We chose the tasting menu and found the dishes creative, thoughtful, and delicious. The wines they paired fit perfectly. The service was an excellent compliment to the cuisine. We can't wait to come back to sample the ever-changing menu again.

Great neighborhood view from the center room. Everyone was very nice and helpful. The food was perfectly prepared and presented. We went in for an anniversary and totally surprised us with a few extras!! That was truly such a great feeling receiving those little gestures from the staff! Will definitely be returning and telling more friends.

Beautiful setting with a view of Austin’s downtown lights. Eclectic, interesting menu w a large selection of small plates and only a few mains. Short wine list continues in the eclectic vein, featuring selections mostly from far flung wine regions and unusual varieties. This is no Cab & Chardonnay hum drum, though the servers could benefit from more wine training to help diners navigate the ephemera. Beer and cocktail selection also contain curiosities and conversation starters, in a good way. The food was good, though it tasted on the plate not quite as delicious as it read on the page. Small portions. Interesting, unusual and enjoyable dining experience.

Worth trying. Service was excellent. Food was creative. However, food temperature was always lukewarm. We did the tasting menu per the water's recommendation. We were not asked what temp was wanted the beef, but accepted the chef's liking. We should not have. I like rare, but this was raw. And the ravioli came out harder them el dente - seemed as if it was cooked properly, but allowed to cool which allowed the edges to harden a tad too much. All in all, the creativity and quality ingredients and waitstaff carried the show. I would try again. But the $100pp price tag set my expectations for Austin at a certain level and i did fall short this time. We shall see next time :)

Not sure how we missed this nugget before tonight. Great food and great service. A little noisy, but expected, considering this is a renovated Victorian home that's beautiful. Don't expect a romantic atmosphere, but if you want to impress her, go here!

We did the tasting menu with drink pairing and we left well satisfied. We spent twice as much at an upscale sushi restaurant two days ago and left there uninspired and less than impressed. We will absolutely be back for more!

Really disappointing food. The atmosphere and ambiance are so cute and has such a great view of downtown that I feel like people good the food a pass. It's like a want to be Emmer & Rye but the quality and flavors were not there. We got the pear salad and it may have been one of the grossest things my husband and I have ever eaten. It tasted like some dumped salt combined with smokey burnt flavor that we literally could not get out of our mouths. I told the waiter it was very salty and he seemed to think this was just our opinion - and not to mention I usually salt my food. The bavette waygu was so chewy it was like steak flavored chewing gum. It also came out nearly raw (the urged me to order medium-rare but this was basically mooing). So disappointing, especially since we went for our one year wedding anniversary.

Lovely old home venue.

We were first seated next to a very loud table, but were easily moved to a quiet corner with a view of the kitchen (love to watch the kitchen at work).

Service was excellent. Wine list while sparse, had some nuggets of value.

Beautiful view of sunset.

Went for Sunday brunch with some friends and the atmosphere is fantastic! It was a shame that the food and service weren’t at the same level. The food was relatively mediocre...not bad, just not anything remarkable that would make you want to come back. Aside from the host who greeted and sat us, every interaction we had with the staff was awkward. One staff member seemed to completely ignore one of the people in our party; it was so strange.
I really hope the food and staff can improve because the location of this restaurant and atmosphere are top notch!

We were meeting out of town friends for brunch and booked a reservation because we usually really enjoy the brunch here. The menu changed since our last visit and it was not a good experience. The barbacoa tacos which were really good are no longer on the menu. We were disappointed with that but we were open to trying new dishes. I’m not sure if it was an off day or what but the chips served with the chicken fried steak sandwich tasted fishy like they had been fried in old oil. They seemed to have forgot one of our friends migas orders and brought it out significantly later then the rest of our table was served. The migas were bland and the tortillas were oily. The hash browns were oily as well. The taste and quality of the dishes were not what we expected. We had previously really enjoyed this restaurant and am hoping this was just an off day.
