Diner Reviews
  • "My husband has been wanting to try Goodalls, so we brought him for his birthday. We were charmed with the dining room and the lovely setting at Hotel Ella. The meal was delicious and desserts even better. We had a lovely relaxed time. We want to come for lunch soon!! So pleased we found this gem. "

  • "Really enjoyed having my birthday lunch here! This place is absolutely GORGEOUS! The greeting staff were so nice and helpful and the waiter was attentive and friendly. I had the cheeseburger and a caesar salad. Soooo delicious! After lunch my friends surprised me with a cake that the staff generously kept in their fridge for us. The chef brought it to us! He introduced himself and complimented my sister's homemade cake. All around great experience."

  • "It was our first visit to Goodall's and we were very impressed with the venue (much improved from that of the Mansion). The menu, while somewhat limited, was very good. The food and presentation were excellent. The wait staff was very willing and able, but the kitchen could not keep up. The meal took 2 hours and 15 minutes. I believe there was a banquet in the hotel and the kitchen was overwhelmed. We will give it another try."

  • "my food which was fish was very good - my friends ordered salad with chicken and they did not seem to enjoy the food at all, but since I was the host they said nothing. I was served tea and honey with no spoon - when we had finished our entrees she said"would you like the check now" - since it was a birthday celebration we wanted to have desert, and we had to ask for a desert menu - when we were ready to leave she brought the wrong check to the table - she was very nice, but needed training. I fault the restaurant for not giving her the proper training. the place is beautiful and we loved that it was very quiet and we could have a conversation."

  • "With a group of visitors from out of town we could not impressed them more with perfect service and perfect food to the last drop of wine, highly original (french/texan?) food. It is a bit pricy but it worths every cent. I double my usual tip (on top of what is included in the bill)"

  • "We knew this location as the Mansion on Judges Hill but post a $6M makeover, the property is fresh and inviting. The restaraunt occupies the same location but that is about all that is in common with the previous dinning experience. The menu is creative and modern with a nice variety including vegan options. We will definately be going back. Be sure to check out the Umlauf sculputure garden in the courtyard."

  • "We were the only party of 4 at lunch. It was quiet, which is very nice and hard to find a restaurant today that is. The menu was small, and not much to chose from. Portions were also small - for the price! Nice ambience, but the server was not very good nor professional. He had BO....."

  • "We REALLY enjoyed our dinner at Goodalls. The combinations of flavors in each dish were unexpectedly wonderful. What seemed like strange ingredients to our ears where delightful on our tongues. & The service was excellent! Will come back when it's warmer for dinner and to take full advantage of that wonderful outdoor porch for cocktails."

  • "It was excellent. We had some truly delicious parmesan breads with sweet butter followed by 3 starts - the quail, the kale and the pork belly. All were amazing and exceeded expectations. For entrees we had an assortment - two pastas, the trout and the scallops. Again, the food was wonderful with beautiful presentation. We had the bacon pecan pie - it came out piping hot to beware but once it cooled it was delightful. Goodall's is charming with excellent service and superb food."

  • "Customer service should be vamped up and food falls short for the price. Lots of great restaurants in Austin and this one COULD be a gem, but it's not."

  • "We were fortunate to be seated next to the fireplace on one of Austin's coldest days. The service was excellent and our wait staff was very knowledgeable on food and wine list. The combination of food, service, excellent wine and fireplace made for a memorable evening. We will return."

  • "What a great old place. I remember it languishing in un-cut grass and weeds in the 60's and 70's. Christmas day brunch was very nice, if the wait staff was a little new and inexperienced. But those things are self-healing with time so they will improve. The kitchen appears very capable, and the dining room is properly elegant in gray and walnut. We'll be back to the dining room after a bit of time passes. We loved the quiet bar, but having brought our own bottle of Grande Dame, we did not test the barman's Sonoma mettle."

  • "Fabulous dinner. All four of us loved our meals. Mac and cheese side dish is to die for! Kale salad was wonderful. Red pepper soup was outstanding. One of our party had the Pasta Amatriciana and it was unbelievable. Highly recommend. Another had the Chicken Breast and it was moist and very tasty. Service good. This is a gem that has yet to be discovered by the Austin population. The chef is extremely talented. Go!!"

  • "Austin, a "foodie town", is very fortunate to have a new neighborhood gem - Goodall's Kitchen and Bar at the Hotel Ella. I chose to have a laid-back birthday dinner here with my friends the other night and must say the service is outstanding, the bar and dining room are beautiful, the choice of beer, wine and spirits superb, and the food, what can I say, excellent. I highly recommend Goodall's and will be returning.often."

  • "I took my mom, sister, and aunt here for a girls weekend special dinner. My aunt gave our server a challenge. If you were bringing your mother-in-law here for the first time, what would you want her to try? Erica did not disappoint. Every item we tried was superb. From cocktails to dessert, each new course was more delicious than the last. The Texas quail appetizer, sea scallop small dish, and the cinnamon spiced duck were the main highlights of the evening. The chocolate peanutbutter molten cake will be raved about for years. With their seasonal menu, it would be hard to have the same thing twice, so I am looking forward to having a new dining adenture at Goodall's for many years to come."

  • "Great if you want a place where you can actually hear....nice staff. EXTREMELY SLOW in terms of pace of meal. We should have said we don't want a 3-hour meal, but who thinks to make that clarification the minute you sit down? Next time--if we return. Bruscetta toast tasted like stale cornbread. Terrible. Dessert: nutella creme brulee. Very very good. It is new--perhaps they will get it together."
