Mother's day brunchI took my mom here for mother's day this year and although it was packed we had a very enjoyable time. The view was beautiful and the food was excellent. I felt the quality was higher than the price I paid which is hard to find now. Chef David Garrido was nice enough to walk around and great guests and tell the happy mother's day at the end of our meal which was a special treat. Overall, it was a good choice and we had a fun time.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMalways goodIt was our first time to sit outside and it was wonderful. Of course the weather has to be right but the food and the service are always very good and look forward to returning.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day LunchLoved the location, a little hidden and near a bride with a great view. Migas and Bloody Marys were awesome. Prices were very reasonable. Wished we could have sat outside, but there will always be next time. Our waitress was super friendly.

Too much attention to taking every glass, plate, utensil away individually as soon as one of us showed any indication of being finished.

It was a little difficult to find as it is at the very end of a dead end road. However it is really beautiful.
We usually go to Manuel's on Congress and I thought this was a nice upgrade. Inside the restraunt is very clean with a very fresh contemporary look.
The servers were great!
The food good... but not great. I ordered a lamb chorizo omlette and my wife ordered the poached eggs over crab cakes. The discription that the server gave us of the two meals had us salivating. My omlette was dry but the chorizo was extremely tastey. My wife had one amazing poached egg and another that was over cooked.
All in all... we will be back3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAbove average reviews on Garrido'sAbove average reviews on Garrido's tempted us to try it out while in Austin. We went with the apps via tapas style and they were a different level. The oyster bocaditos and pork bocaditos were awesome. The brisket con queso was also a different level. The tortilla chips were homemade while the homemade tomatillo salsa was served warm. The patio dining offered a perfect setting. It helped the temp was around 75 degrees in the shade! Cocktails were unique and tasty. The watermelon-jalapeno margarita did well to deliver, while the guava martini was flavorful. Our server did well to offer his recommendations and he was spot on with all of them. Just a tremendous dining experience and will go back when in Austin again.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly and yummy!I love Garrido's, and dine there regularly. Our server was new and eager, which was refreshing compared to some of the service that I've received in the past (which can be inconsistent). He paid us just the right amount of attention without being intrusive, which is a hard balance to achieve. Very polite and prompt. The food was wonderful, as always. Thank you, Garrido's!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
