    Very nice bar, nice ambience. Good place to go for a date. Some of the drinks have more ice then alcohol for the cost. Cool drinks but definitely a bit pricey.

    My husband and I had a great time at The Roosevelt Room! The cocktails were out of this world! The charcuterie board was excellent! I'd suggest having plans to eat before or after since they have light appetizers on the menu. Curtis was our bartender and he was such a joy to talk with and made amazing cocktails! He knew the ins and the outs of the drinks and made great suggestions. We will definitely visit The Roosevelt Room again!

    We went there to celebrate a birthday. There were four of us. Really cool place- best drink list and craft cocktails I have ever seen! I realize it take longer to make drinks there, but it took our server 40 minutes to come over to take our drink order. Besides that- this place is super cool!

    This place was a vibe for sure. You need to put a credit card down for a reservation so I was expecting everything to be next level. The drinks we got were good and all very cute/cool. However we could only spend two hours there based on our reservation slot and the service was pretty slow, 30+ mins going by with no one checking on us. We really didn’t get to try everything we wanted which was a bummer as out of towners.

    You could go to the Roosevelt Room purely for the atmosphere, the inside is gorgeous and they stick to their theme. Our bartender, Chris, was incredible. He was very personable, easy to talk to, and made drinks like nobody’s business. He did great helping us find drinks that fit our flavor profiles to a t. Speaking of drinks, you will never get bored trying something new here, there are so many options and it’s an enigma that the bartenders know them by heart. 10/10, We will definitely be coming back.

    Caught them at Happy Hour. Daresay the best Negroni I’ve ever had accompanied with a delicious avocado toast. The ambiance was cool and delightfully dark with ‘Casablanca’ being projected in the wall above us. Bartenders were very knowledgeable and could engage in great discussion about the cocktails they made and offer alternatives and suggestions. Gold star!

    We had a table for 4--half with a booth seating and 2 with bar stools at the end of the row across from the bar. It was a great location as we only had people on 1 side and could watch the drinks and food get delivered. We could also access our amazing server, Tomas, quite easily. He was amazing at his job with so much knowledge of what we should try based on our likes. The drinks were all something we've never had before and elevated to such a high degree.

    I visited Austin to celebrate my fiancé’s bday just for the weekend and I was looking forward to coming to this place since it was our first cocktail bar. We weren’t impressed with the service at all and actually felt extremely unwelcome. I asked my bartender what does she recommend since we’ve never been to a cocktail bar before and I’m not much of a drinker myself. She asked for my preference and I said anything sweet or fruity. I named a couple of drinks I could recall at the time and she said to save that for dive bars. She recommended a drink that actually wasn’t good at all. My fiancé and I were trying to figure out what was in it and realized it was nutmeg. We noticed our throat wasn’t reacting well with the nutmeg, but it was bearable. I only ordered 1 drink that night. I had a previous reservation for the dinner party and my server did not recommend this place. I should’ve listened to him. I don’t ever plan to go back. But nice decor and vibe though. Just lack good service.

    Best place in Austin for high quality cocktails and elegant old Hollywood aesthetic. If you're looking for a quiet place to sip and talk with co workers, partners, or even alone, look no further. It is on the pricier side but well worth the cost. I will definitely be coming back to try more of their drinks
