ROSEWOOD BAR AND GRILL
Established in 2002, This elegantly casual modern restaurant serves Classic American cuisine from accomplished and charismatic Chef Ian Bens. The entire menu is constantly changing to serve seasonal plates made from local and organically farm produce, sustainable fish and free range beef. Despite its popularity, one can still carry an intimate conversation in its romantic atmosphere. There’s outdoor dining overlooking the town square and a sophisticated bar with inventive cocktails by master mixologist, Shannon.

Rosewood Bar and Grill is not just favorably located in the center of Downtown, but it represents the soul of it. It’s unremarkable why Chef Ian Bens chose this region for all its boundless resources. Even though Lodi had firmly established its roots decades ago, it is more of a significant repeat destination because of Chef Ian Bens.
