LA Weekly's Description

This "casual" steakhouse looking out onto Fairfax Avenue has a great Scotch list and an impressive craft beer selection and an inviting atmosphere, even if it does feel like a set-dressed version of a Bowery bar. Too bad the owners don't seem to care much about the menu.

Entrees range from bland (beef dip sandwich, steak and ale pie) to badly overcooked (mussels in a salty tom yum broth) to sloppy and downright awful (the Thousand Island-drenched burger). The steaks are adequate though not terribly flavorful. The most noteworthy items on the menu: deviled eggs spiked with horseradish, crisp Indian-spiced chicken wings and golden brown fries.

An unwieldy communal occupies lots of floor space. The room is loud and buzzy, more like bar than a bona fide restaurant, which makes perfect sense. It's a fun place to hang with friends and knock back drinks, just steer clear of anything more complicated than the liquor and the ambiance.

Tips from foursquare

  • Thrillist on 05/31/11

    Saddle up to this Western-style chop house, furnished with exposed brick and lots of old-looking wood, for fine scotch and a Steak Coullotte, because that’s what any ‘real’ cowboy would order.

  • AskMen on 05/27/11

    A warm, inviting vibe for folks to socialize over some quality ales or a glass of scotch. They just opened & are experiencing some newbie pains - staff still learning to handle the weekend rush.

  • LA Weekly on 10/04/11

    "Be smart. Explore [the] beer list, which features approximately two dozen craft brews. Dig into its impressive roster of whiskey & Scotch, replete with unpronounceable distilleries." - Elina Shatkin

  • David H. on 07/26/12

    From this day forth, as mayor of Rosewood Tavern, I decree that all patrons of the bar area shall raise a toast & cheer "ladder drink" when an employee climbs the ladder to ensure favorable standing.

  • Taste Terminal on 11/07/11

    Not a morning person – that’s okay, the Grand English Breakfast from Rosewood Tavern is available during lunch. They don’t call this breakfast “grand” for no reason.
