This is a one of a kind restaurant in Austin. It's quaint, sophisticated, romantic, expensive (but worth it) and great for even the pickiest of food connoisseurs.

Jezebel was absolutely fabulous
We had the pleasure of dining at Jezebel this weekend and it was absolutely incredible. I have eaten at all of the fine dining spots in Austin and this is by far the best restaurant in the city. The food was beautiful, the service was impeccable, and the wine...it was perfect. We will be back. The chef is a magician. If you have not been, go. It's worth every penny. Best dining experience we have had in Texas and on par with the best of San Francisco, LA, and NYC. The art and atmosphere was great too.

The dining experience at Restaurant
The dining experience at Restaurant Jezebel is not a typical one. Instead of making selections from a menu, the server will ask you about food allergies and certain taste preferences, after which, you will select either a four course or seven course meal. Based upon this information, the chef will create your dinner. Expect a variety of tastes; and expect to taste something new.
The food and service at Restaurant Jezebel were excellent; although sometimes the gap between courses felt a bit long. I think this is the nature of this type of dining experience. We were the first party seated and were informed that the table was ours for the evening. Savor the experience slowly; and make sure you can entertain yourselves.

Their unique service is a fixed menu of five courses tailored to your desires and food restrictions. The matching wine pours were stunning choices.

Every single detail about
Every single detail about this place was phenomenal. The setting was intimate and cozy. (Literally the table has eight tables and they do a single seating per night.) The service was attentive but not overly so. If you're adventurous with food and have any sort of special occasion this is the place to go. I'm a complete foodie and I loved this experience.

We were celebrating our 37th
We were celebrating our 37th anniversary. This was our first experience at Jezebel and were a little uncertain of its format. We enjoyed our food choices and the food preparation/presentation. The chef gave us a special treat of any anniversary dessert which we enjoyed and was very thoughtful.
We were the first patrons at the restaurant that evening. Out table was right in front of the door and very noisy each time the door opened. We asked our first waiter for a table change and he did not accommodate, to us indicating all the tables were spoken for. We repeated the request to the second waiter and were given a table change. As it turns out the restaurant had two unfilled tables at the evening end.

Best Special Occasion restaurant
Best service and special occasion restaurant in Austin. Personalized service and food preparation. Unique, exquisite blend of fresh herbs, spices and fabulous game, meat or fish to your specifications.Very friendly service. Service beyond reproach. The chef's work is an artful masterpiece.

For a special occasion
I took my girlfriend to Restaurant Jezebel for her birthday - it was an absolutely amazing experience! Our reservation was for 7:30, and we didn't leave till 12:15 - but we were enjoying every minute. Our waiter (and sommelier) Joel first asked us about food allergies/preferences. These were passed along to the chef where a unique meal was created for us. Our words were very much taken to heart - be specific about what you want. Anything was possible, from a cocktail that was devised on the spot, to a tea that was created to aid my GFs digestion between courses. The cheese plate we ordered to get the meal started was quite large, we may have eaten too much before other food came out. It would have been better for 4 people.

We have been waiting for Jezebel's to return and we were so happy! Amazing night with my wife. The Chef personally delivered many courses. What a great dining experience.

World Class Dining in the Center of Austin. I've had the opportunity to eat all over the world in some of the best fine dining restaurants and this restaurant is as good as anywhere I've been. Top notch food, top notch service. We had such a wonderful anniversary celebrating there. We will be going back!

We were thrilled when Jezebel reopened on 6th Street. We were fans on Congress and are thrilled to have it back. It is a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion. We applaud the move to the 5 course tasting menu as a compromise from the original 4 or 7. We would be even happier if they returned to the a la carte menu but understand why the decision was made

Restaurant Jezabel is one of a kind
This is a very small (exclusive) space featuring a 5 course prix fixe meal. There is no menu. You are interviewed by your server who then relays your food likes (and dislikes) to the chef. Each course is a surprise, which I found very fun. After the 5th course (dessert) they wheeled out a candy cart featuring over a dozen different types of unique confectionary treats crafted by their pastry chef.....WOW! It was like going to Willie Wonka's!.......Overall a great experience. It is pricey.....but for a special occasion, worth it.
7/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Definitely for a special occasion
We had a great dining experience at Jezebel. The hospitality was tremendous. Extremely personalized service. There are only 8 tables. There is no menu. Your meal is customized for you on the spot personally by Chef Parind, based on ones likes/dislikes, interests and what's available. He had a superb assortment of wild game. Fresh fish every other day. He did a sashimi hamachi for me that just melted in the mouth literally. Fabulous. The wine pairings were awesome. All high quality wines. Impressive list. No fillers or fluff on that list. All boutique, new world and old, with many important vintages. Truly a special occasion place. Nothing else like it in Austin. It is extremely expensive. If you have to ask about price, don't go.

Best meal of my life!
I've been all over the world and have eaten my fair share of gourmet cuisine. However, this meal at Jezebel was by far the best experience I've ever had. From the personal service to the exquisite food, the entire night was a memorable experience. The chef is truly an artist. Our favorite components, as the courses all had several components each, were both on the same plate: a tobacco-crusted pan-seared barracuda for me and sweetbreads for her. The foie gras is always a hit and the wine list is impeccable. I highly recommend Jezebel!

Birthday dinner success!
I made reservations for my husband's birthday. We were pleased with the personal attention, variety of foods, and excellent service. We were particularly impressed with the ambiance and overall quality of food.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We missed the original Restaurant Jezebel. It was definitely a favorite for my wife and me. This incarnation takes the experience to a higher, more creative and artistic level. 5 custom courses and extremely attentive service added an element of personalization that I haven't seen in Austin, but the star was the food that incorporated ingredients and flavors I had never tasted. It was amazing and I can't wait to go back for our next special occasion. It was the perfect place to celebrate 10 years with my beautiful wife.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Absolutely the best service I've ever had, and I travel to Europe and Asia often!
We were met at the valet, greeted by name, personally shown to our table and had cocktails made at our table. And that's just the start of an exquisite evening. The food was artful as well as tantalizingly delicious.
Splurge...you and your taste buds will be pampered beyond belief!

This is one of the best specil occasion places in Austin
Lots of attention to detail - bottled water in car when we picked it up from valet - and fab food

Best Service I've Ever Had
Absolutely phenomenal service. Best I've ever had, hands down. The food was great too. The waiter talked to us at the beginning to determine our food preferences and dislikes, and then passed that information along to the chef. It was interesting to see how that played out throughout the evening, as our dishes included scallops, two fish dishes, and lamb chops, while another table received short ribs and filet mignon. Overall it was a great experience and a perfect place to celebrate our special occasion.

One word - Perfect
We tried Jezebel for the first time this past Friday. We arrived early for our reservation and were immediately taken care of even though our table wasn't ready. The staff was very accomodating, even though we weren't expected for 45 minutes. All evening, the service was very attentive, but never intrusive. We opted for the wine pairings and the selections were very good with each course. Each course offered something unique and the presentation of the food was fun to experience. The way your individual meal is customized to your likes, or dislikes is so unique in Austin dining. I would say that our experience at Resaurant Jezebel is the best we've ever had in Austin and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

An REAL food experience.
I have never had such an amazing food experience. Every plate was custom made for our food preferences over the five courses. Each course was a little more wonderful than the next. With only having 8 tables they serve per night, this is the most exclusive place I have ever been. Be warned though, if you are not a real foodie, you will be frustrated. Our dinner started at 7 and ended at 10:30. But they call you when you reserve to let you know that because they make every plate for every customer in the restaurant from scratch each course, it takes a while. It's also the must expensive dinner I've had. For the two of us with a bottle of champaign, it was over $400. But WORTH EVERY penny for the experience and food of a lifetime.

This is my favorite fine dining restaurant in Austin. Chief Parind is creative without going over board. Love the way he will pair your food to the wine you order. If you have not tried this place get over there as soon as possible.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a great meal that
This was a great meal that missed 5 stars on only a few small points of execution. Overall excellent creativity. It's a 5 course tasting menu. We also added on a cheese course. The highlights for me were the scallop and the venison -- delicious. One meat course was a bit cool for both myself and my wife; I'm not sure if it sat a bit. The initial crudo course lacked acidity. Only at the levels this restaurant aspires to (and charges for) would I deduct a star for this.. I would eat here again, especially since I suspect the misses were execution and not design.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service was outstandin
The food and service was outstanding. It was wonderful that the staff checked for food likes, dislikes and allergies. From there each course was a surprise. We were served items that we would not order but each item was prepared to perfection. I was shocked when we received the bill. It was way lower than I was anticipating. Definitely a value for the meal.

Referrals drive your future
Food was good, there was a delay in the kitchen, and the wine was outstanding. My only caution is the way the chef embarrassed a customer because they needed to leave during their second course. I don't care how much it costs you as a restaurant to let it be, but your food is not the only measurable in your success.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
An Individually Unique Experience
The unique thing about this restaurant is that the courses are chosen for you according to your own likes and dislikes.
The sommelier chose the 'best' pairings with the courses that I have ever had chosen for a meal.
He said that he doesn't know what will be prepared by the chef since, each diner's dishes can be different from the other diners dishes. Not sure how he selects wines but, he has 'the taste for it'!
I really wanted the soup in a wooden bird's nest that the table next to us had...just to take a photo of it!
Our dishes were different from each others for some of the courses. The food!!!

Not To Be Missed
Every now and then, my wife and I encounter a dining experience that simply outshines everything else we might have been experiencing of late. To celebrate our recent anniversary, we scoured the local Austin restaurant scene, and noticed that we had already been to almost all of the restaurants listed, but Restaurant Jezebel jumped out at us. The ratings by other diners were (with one exception) uniformly extraterrestrial with praise. Jezebel is an Austin culinary gem. It is no run-of-the-mill great eatery, of which there are many here. This is really a not-to-be-missed diamond, perfect for the over-the-top special occasion. The staff, from the couple who waited on us, to the chef who visited us not once but twice, were phenomenal!
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the finest dining experiences in Austin. Excellent.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place was so unique. It is a menu based on what you like or dont like The waiter asks you if you have any dislikes and gives you a run down of the food items that can be prepared. Then it begins. There are so many courses. Then theres dessert and candy. All made by the owner/chef. He is amazing, he also came out to the table and served us a couple of times and we just chit chatted with him. I would def go again and again.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were blown away by the perfection at Jezebel. From the greeting on the street, to the last pastry, everything was perfect. Each course was expertly prepared, with an explanation about everything on each plate. Plus, the wine pairings were definitely the way to go rather than just have 1 bottle. Worth every penny for the experience. Thanks Jezebel for making my 20th wedding anniversary memorable!
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Jezebel rang every bell!
It was a gorgeous, artful setting for course after course of creative and delicious food. We were pampered with exquisite service and fantastic tastes featuring flavors that spanned the globe.
There was a huge Scotch menu and my fave: a candy cart where we were invited to choose what we wanted from dozens of house made treats! We were sent home 3 hours later with lovely breakfast muffins. My husband said it should be a regular stop for us from now on!

We had the 5 course tasting
We had the 5 course tasting with wine paring. The chef pretty much makes it up as he goes along based the guidelines of a brief interview. The food and wine were excellent and the service was superb. My only complaint was that even though the artwork is nice, it felt a little like eating in a warehouse . And it was definitely our most expensive meal ever.

We were fans of the "old"
We were fans of the "old" Jezebal, but this was our first visit to Restaurant Jezebel. It was a wonderful experience in every way. From the discussion with the waitstaff concerning or likes and dislikes to the actual discussions with Chef during the course of the meal, it was a unique experience. We selected the wine pairing and the 5 course meal. The flavors were abundant and wonderful and the wine pairings were spot on. It was not inexpensive, but every dollar was well spent. For special occasions, it will be our restaurant of choice.

A Perfect Dining Experience
I'm so happy to have a restaurant like this in Austin. Until now, I've only been able to receive similar levels of service in other major cities. And really, I think of all the places I've dined, Jezebel delivered the most customized experience. It's definitely made my top 5 all-time-favorite list. We will be celebrating another special occasion here in the future!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service was terrific and the food was outstanding. My daughters, grandson and I enjoyed every course. We will add Jezebel to our list of favorites.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Be prepared to spend 3hrs for perhaps the best personalized dining experience in Austin. It's $$$$ but worth every penny. Save it for that very special occasion. You won't be sorry. Check their web site first to make sure it is the right fit for you. It may not be for everyone depending on your tastes.
