Sumptuous California Cuisine at the Rosewood
The Rosewood CordeValle is an experience as much as it is a destination. With three world-class eateries and just as many Epicurean Encounters—food-centric tours that explore the local agricultural landscape—there are endless culinary delights.
During your stay, start the gastronomic journey with breakfast at One Iron Bar. The eggs Bernard makes an elegant choice as poached eggs, smoked salmon, creamy avocado, and salsa verde perfectly meld together in each bite. For an even more memorable experience, pair the dish with a glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice or a cappuccino—and the lemon-ricotta waffle. Complete with blueberry compote and sunflower seeds, this sweetly balanced dish is the cherry on top and is sure to linger in your memories long after breakfast is over.
Spend the afternoon lounging poolside, hiking in the nearby mountains, or practicing your swing on the golf course before grabbing a bite at the Lion’s Peak Grill. Dine alfresco to fully enjoy the luscious landscape and the resort’s natural beauty. Choose between the refreshing chicken Caesar wrap—featuring crisp romaine, delicate Parmesan, sourdough croutons, and Caesar dressing—and the satiating black bean–quinoa slider topped with avocado, pickled onions, and goat cheese for the perfect lunch.
Reserve a table for dinner at Il Vigneto during your stay, and the Rosewood CordeValle might become your new go-to overnight spot. While the menu constantly rotates to accommodate the region’s freshest produce, there’s never a bad dish on the roster. If it’s available, order the heirloom melon to start. The juicy melon mixes with savory prosciutto, nutty pistachios, tangy goat cheese, and zesty kaffir lime for a deliciously complex flavor palate. Continue on with the bacon- and potato-topped corn soup for an unexpected favorite. End the indulgent meal with the succulent beef tenderloin; paired with asparagus, confit tomatoes, and pickled onions, this plate is both light and savory. Make your way back to the One Iron Bar to end the night properly by roasting marshmallows around the firepit, and it’s sure to be a night to remember.
Set aside some time the next day to visit the local farmlands, pick apples, and savor the bounty of the Silicon Valley. The interactive experience provides you with access to the talented artisans and distinctive landscape that make the region so unique. Exploring the area’s freshest flavors also allows you to better understand the purveyors who provide their sustainable, locally grown ingredients to the Rosewood kitchen.
The Rosewood even offers a bespoke dining experience for guests. While these personalized meals are ideal for proposals and special celebrations, there is no wrong time to experience this intimate expression of the local culinary scene. These exclusive events are held in secluded locations and feature customized, five-course tasting menus highlighting the best seasonal cuisine.
Swinging into Success
When it comes to the Rosewood CordeValle, golfing is not just an additional amenity—it’s what started it all. Designed by renowned architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr., the award-winning, 18-hole championship golf course has been enticing golfers since it opened in 1999.
Set across 260 acres, the course expertly incorporates the hills and divots of the valley to create an incredibly distinct golfing experience. The golf course at Rosewood CordeValle also enhances its warm surroundings with towering oak trees, meandering streams, and open meadows. The striking beauty of this landscape is hard to overlook, and taking a swing on the greens is equally difficult to pass up.
