The dining room is beautiful, the food is always interesting and delicious, the staff is super gracious and accommodating. Love this place for meeting friends for lunch or for a special occasion dinner. No charge for homemade sparkling water. Good wine list, innovative and updated menus, Great view of western hills, never notice Hwy 280 below them, charming outdoor patio.

I have been here many times and it never disappoints. The ambience is beautiful with a huge fireplace and views of the Santa Cruz mountains. Impeccable service, food quality and cocktails. Perfect for friends or date night.

I hosted a lunch for 15 people in a private dining room. Great experience. The dining room had flowers (part of the hotel/restaurant flower arrangement), a private balcony that holds 8-10 people and privacy! We had drinks on the balcony until lunch started--a prearranged set menu for the event. The staff was awesome; I highly recommend the restaurant for any... More

The Rosewood seems to think it can charge anything ! Twenty dollars for a bagel and smoked-salmon plate, on which the sliced heirloom tomatoes were ice-cold. Who keeps sliced tomatoes in the fridge? And then, they were 'down to one everything bagel', forcing a decision from me and my husband quite like that in an O. Henry story. Service great... More

I called to book an event. The manager never returned the call. I called again and the manager never returned the call. I emailed the general manager, Avi, and he never responded. Instead, an assistant banquet manager responded and he had no idea what was going on. There are so many other good restaurants in Silicon Valley you can go... More

The restaurant is located into the Rosewood Hotel. The outside seating includes an beautiful view of the Santa Cruz mountains with an amazing sunset. The food portions were small. I ordered the lamb with a mixed preparation of loin and sausage. The restaurant offered an extensive wine selection. The service included multiple servers who constantly checked on you.

I was just here recently for lunch. I always felt the price was too high for what you get. But with the new chef, I had a great lunch served. It was worth it.
