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.

Most of the food was excellent, but I found a couple of the items we ordered to be pretty basic in comparison to the others. Seasonal squash salad was tasty, but tiny and just seemed a little meh. My companion had the little neck clams in curry and they were outstanding. Waiter was highly knowledgeable and a good mix of attentive without hovering.

The Coppa starter, Blue Point oysters and Rosewood Burger were all excellent. Interesting cocktails and a good wine list. Other than the service being a little inattentive it was a great meal.

Very disappointed in food quality. Discovered Rosewood recently and have brought friends multiple times. Unfortunately the last 2 times the quality of the cooking has gone decidedly south. Over salted and no longer the same quality. Maybe new cooking staff?

I have not been giving the East side a lot of love as I am still exploring the other side of 35, however, Rosewood looks super cute and it has been on my list for a while, so for a friends birthday, we finally decided to make reservations. Reservations are made online via Open table, but the max is 4, so you have to call for larger parties and they graciously accommodated our party of 6 and we were so appreciative.
The assumption that the inside is just as cute as the outside is a correct assumption. The squeaking wooden floors lends to the homey feeling most of us remember from our childhood. It was very cozy and quaint and that feeling along with the delicious food is why I highly recommend Rosewood.
For starters we chose the house made focaccia, wagyu beef parisa, yellowfin tuna ceviche, red snapper crudo, roasted squash salad as well as the boggy creek farms salad and all were delicious. For mains we ravaged the lamb shoulder, sea bass and foie duck and all dishes had a well executed presentation.
The banana pudding and chocolate fudge cake rounded out our dining experience. I am looking forward to trying the Chef's Counter!

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.

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.
