Food and service were good. The restaurant seemed dated. It was also uncomfortably cold in the restaurant.

Exceptional dining experience
After reading negative blogs bout Jeffrrey's, we were hesitant about going. Our experience was exceptional! Our waiter Johnny was fantastic, he has been with Jeffrey's for 35 years and was very knowledgeable about the food and he told us the history of the restaurant.
For those that were saying the prices of the steaks are overpriced, they are not. Having dined all over the world in 5 star restaurants, the prices at Jeffrey's are inline with the quality of steaks they serve.
Jeffrey's is a wonderfull place to dine.

Well, what can we say except that the new Jeffrey's has raised the fine dining bar for the Austin metropolitan area! New and improved! Spectacular dining experience!

Had the kale salad and it was over the top good. Chocolate soufflé was to die for. Entrees of halibut and Niemann bone in filet were good, not great. Overall a nice special occasion restaurant.

First time at Jeffrey's - food was excellent, wine list extensive, steaks were melt-in-your-mouth good! Highly recommend it, definitely will make it a regular stop. A complimentary caesar salad was shared by 3 and was unique and very good.

Having used to work at the former Jeffrey's I was surprised by the changes that have been made. From the valet tickets, view into the kitchen to the floors and seating. All had a new modern twist to them. I had visions of the old restaurant but it definitely feels like a new Jeffrey's Well done. Being my first experience with dry aged steaks I didn't have much to go on but I cannot stop raving about the flavors. I enjoyed every bite to the end. Absolutely delicious. My wife had their pork chop which might get overshadowed on the menu from the steak menu but she instantly put jeffereys as one if her top restaurants. Everything was top notch and service was excellent. What a magical experience. I will be making another reservation soon.

Our evening at Jeffrey's was wonderful. From the steak tartar and snails to the smoked pork chop/lobster thermador/flounder and more steak straight through to the chocolate soufflé and baked alaska. The only negative--the Baked alaska was not flaming when brought to the table.
We loved it and will return as often as we can!

Best dinner all year
The service was wonderful. We were there early at 5:30. We both have food allergies and the staff and chef accommodated 100%. Thank you!!
We have olives & nuts.. Foie Gras, lobster salad, kale salad, escargot, steak & pork chop with mushrooms and tomatoes. We pigged out. All was absolutely perfect. The pork chop surprised me it was to die for. Not what you think it's gonna be.
Also the cocktails were unbelievable. The daisy and one other yummy straight up delicious drink our server Steven recommended .
He helped make the experience the best.

This was our first time to dine at Jeffrey's in several years. We went to celebrate our anniversary and could not have had a better experience! The food, service, wine, decor - everything exceeded my expectations. We will be returning soon!

One of the nicest restaurant
One of the nicest restaurant experiences. Ask for Johnny as your server. He is an Austin treasure.

Fabulous date night
What a great dinner! Jeffrey's is better than ever after it's new opening. Things we had and loved: fried oysters, kale caesar salad, the halibut, a steak, and a soufflé! All amazing!!! Definitely try a steak here...out of this world delicious! The chocolate soufflé was also amazing! We will be back!

Elegant Dining in Austin
We went here for our anniversary. We knew it was going to be expensive but this was a special occasion. The food, service, wine recommendations were excellent. For starters we had the terrific oysters, which is a holdover from David Garrido, but with the new chef's tweak. A very knowledgeable wine sommelier helped us with the wine selections and we had a terrific French Burgundy. The wedge salad was nicely done. My wife had the lobster Thermidor and I had a ribeye; both of which were excellent. The fries and tomatoes as sidswere also nicely done. For dessert, we had a chocolate torte that was awesome. Apparently it was a limited special item; I would suggest making it permanent. Our server was a nice guy named Mcvay and did a terrific job.

We have always loved Jeffrey's and were eager to try is after the restoration. We were not disappointed as the food, service and ambience remains top-notch! Jeffrey's will still be one of our top 5 restaurants!

In with the new...
There's an old guard in Austin that is protecting what has been and dismissing what is coming. This is valuable to preserving the identity of a city, but detrimental to creativity. You'll have plenty of Austinites tell you that Jeffery's is long past it's prime and not worth the money. Then there's the rest of the country who's heard of the resurrection. To echo most of what we read and what we experienced, this may not be the most creative food in an outstanding food city, and it may not be the hottest spot, but it's everything a restaurant should strive to be: comfortable, elegant, professional, modern, classic, wonderful, an event. It's future memory incarnate.

Great food and ambience...
Fabulous service but quite pricey. I love Jeffrey's!

Great meal... questionable value
My wife and I enjoyed our meal, but for ~$400 I could have a great meal at another top-notch steakhouse. Twice. SO... as good as the meal was, I'm not sure we'll return anytime soon. Service was *exceptional*, as you'd expect.

I came to Jeffrey's after
I came to Jeffrey's after reading the Bon Appetit article and it definately lived up to the hype! Everything was done to absolute perfection, from the timing of service, to the layers of flavor in each and every dish, to the perfect wine pairings this was decadence on a grand scale! Servers were very attentive without being overly stuffy or pretentious and helped guide my friend and I through the menu. If you are looking for the premier of restaurants in America Jeffrey's should be on your list.

We had an outstanding dinner at Jeffery's on Saturday. The food was inventive and excellent. The service was very attentive without being intrusive. We were made to feel like guests and were not rushed. We have tried a number of the top-rated restaurants in Austin, and this is Best of Show by a clear margin.

Elegant dining, superb food, pricey
The renovation from the previous Jeffrey's is remarkable - a pleasant, quiet, and elegant atmosphere. The service was attentive and personable, and every need was anticipated. The food was superb, beginning with our sharing steak tartare, with capers, parmesan, and truffle slices, to a tasty salad course of Kale Caesar, and entrees of a "Kobe" style steak and grilled pork that were perfectly seasoned and cooked and melted in our mouths. Probably the best steak I've eaten compared the many exclusive restaurants I've dined in most major American cities (e.g., Per Se in New York). We'll be looking forward to returning in the future, although the surprising high price will limit this great restaurant to being our special occasion place.

The food, service, atmosphere, and experience were all top-notch. Definitely a wonderful place for a special occasion.

Perfect Anniversary Spot
Excellent atmosphere and really outstanding service! My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and we thoroughly enjoyed our entire experience at Jeffrey's. We were a little early and chose to start with a drink at the bar. The room is cozy and had a nice fire going! The drink menu had several creative options. Once we were seated the restaurant offered martini and cheese carts. We each ordered a Manhattan that they made at our table. The waiter was prompt but never rushed us. I can't say enough about the quality of service. We had an excellent meal. It was not an inexpensive meal but it was really worth every penny! I definitely recommend Jeffrey's for a special occasion.

Special occasion treat
Be prepared to pay top dollar (for us, anyway) and enjoy delicious and creative cuisine. The decor is warm and elegant and the service excellent. I started with the salad with persimmon and duck confit. It was an exquisite blend of flavors, perfectly dressed, with local persimmons, flavorful and sweet but not mushy. My flounder entree was another delicate flavor blend, expertly prepared. Portions were small, but quite adequate. For heavier fare, my companion ordered the beef carpaccio and lamb osso buco. Both were tasty, but to us, not as extraordinary as the salad and flounder. Our servers gave excellent guidance on food selections and wine pairings.
