About The Roosevelt

Please indicate when booking at The Roosevelt whether you are visiting for dinner or simply drinks. Note your preference in the comment section when you enter your contact details during the booking process.

In a post-Mad Men world, the timeless elegance of 60’s New York and Hollywood lives on in a tiny portion of Sydney’s Potts Point. A chic, glamorous portal to the past, The Roosevelt conjures up smoke clouds billowing from men’s pipes and clouds of spritzed perfume following coiffed beauties. Serving classic dining options inspired by fine American dining in the heyday of macho men and femme fatales, freshly caught oysters, shucked to order, grilled prawn with garlic butter and charred octopus touch on the refined approach to cooking, and seafood in particular at Orwell Street’s The Roosevelt.

Further Information

For diners in Potts Point, The Roosevelt represents a mainstay of Sydney’s history. The Roosevelt first opened its doors in 1947, in a time that Australia had prohibited the buying and selling of alcohol in the evening. The Roosevelt on Orwell Street was a nightclub which, aside from dancing girls and suited men, continued to serve its patrons alcohol when the sun went down. Under the guidance of Abe Saffron, The Roosevelt established a reputation of high class glamour, drinking, dancing and disdain for the rules which lives on today.

The modern incarnation of The Roosevelt maintains much of its 1947 charm, albeit for a modern audience. Gone are the scantily clad women, and it their place Sydney’s most discerning diners flood. Captivated by a dining room that is dimly lit, chicly appointed and retro without being kitsch, as well as a poker room and the luxurious Monroe Room for private events, The Roosevelt has preserved a moment in Potts Point’s history. Find superior Americana-inspired food with a slant towards seafood, great drinks (especially whiskeys) and indulge a moment or two at The Roosevelt.

Delicious cocktails, excellent ambiance and delightful staff. It was a great place to go on a wet sydney evening and a fabulous place to catch up with the girls. Nice mix of ages too.

Love the venue. Service fantastic. Food great. Order plates to share. 3 dishes for a couple is enough. Very loud. Great for groups. Not date night.

The Roosevelt is a great place for a quick pre-theatre dinner - good food, classy decor and fabulous cocktails. The $15 steak on a Wednesday night is a true bargain.

Great atmosphere and loved how we could book just for drinks. Quirky cocktail menu and lovely staff. A great place for dinner or ore dinner drinks

The cocktails are totally banging! There will be something to satisfy everyone. The food is sensational. The pate is smooth and rich and beautiful. We dined really early on a Sunday night so they weren't quite prepared but they comped us the sides (have the Brussels sprouts - seriously good and from a person who always hated sprouts as a kid) because the mains took a while. Not that we were in a hurry or anything. So, that was really good of them and unexpected. The Eton mess dessert was fantastic. I love this place and will definitely recommend them and I will come back.

The Roosevelt is a great experience - delicious food, cocktails, friendly wait staff, comfortable atmosphere and always, always the perfect playlist in the background (which is loud enough to enjoy/hear, but not so loud as to ruin your evening)

It was not my first visit and it certainly will not be my last. This is one of the finest eateries in the Kings Cross area. The cocktail and wine list has something for everyone. Service is snappy and stylish. On this visit I had the silver dory served with radicchio which worked a treat. And at $15 was probably cheaper than the local fish and chips. Very highly commended.

I love the Roosevelt, the drinks are a mix of Lobo and Baxter which is great fun! Food is tasty. The girls were a bit hasty last night but maybe it's just PMS. The Roosevelt still rules!
