    We wanted to eat on the patio and stay for the band but a big rain storm hit so we ate in one of the dinning rooms. We had a waitress in training, Rachel with Austin, service was fine. Food was great but I have to say it is pricey, one drink+steaks for two $155.00 not including tip. Went to the patio bar and attentive bartender, Dustin, remembered me from previous visits. I take my service dog JAX, and he is always welcomed there. The last time I was there 2 weeks ago there was a deputy sheriffs car lurking in the dark at the stop below the restaurant to the highway. I have brought this to the attention of the general manager, who told me that this has happened frequently.

    we were in Austin on vacation. We went to Steiners for my sons birthday. Great food, excellent service. Our server's name was Regina. She did an excellent job of helping us with a wine selection from an extensive list. The steaks were great as you would expect but the restaurant also serves as an accompaniment lobster butter which really made the steak unique. Finished the dinner with caramel bread pudding - one serving enough for 4 people. Would definitely go back then next time that I am in town.

    My wife's birthday. They didn't know 'til we arrived, but within minutes everyone involved in our service knew - it was an impressive display of customer care. We occupied a small room viewing the lake; it was a Wednesday night, so we were all alone. Our waiter, Nathan treated us like we were his only table, yet the other parts of the restaurant were active. We had Chateau Briand for two which was marvelous. The wine list by-the-glass was only okay, but everything else was top notch. We will return.

    It was our first visit to the restaurant, and we decided to try it since I kept hearing one of my friends mention it. We booked dinner for a birthday celebration, and it was worth it! The outdoor seating and bar area are beautiful. They have some wonderful romantic tables for two along the edge. The sunset view is amazing, the food was delicious, and the live music created a nice ambiance. Even in early September, the outdoor seating was a comfortable temperature at 7 pm, and the breeze was nice. Highly recommended for dinner or even just happy hour with friends.

    Waiter brought the wrong meal for me but the right dish for the others...so the others ate while I waited 15 minutes. Then he had a different waiter serve me. with no apology. when the steak came it was dry and tasteless. The table next to us was annoyingly boisterous. I will not return or recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    Steak has always been my favorite here, however, this visit I had snapper with a crabmeat, crawfish & butter topping. It was fabulous! Enjoy a glass of wine and music outdoors when it get a little cooler. The view is fantastic. This restaurant offers excellent food and a wonderful atmosphere.

    The food was the best we have ever had a Steiner Ranch. We have had dinner many times and Aug. 25th was the best. We would also like to call your attention to the tortilla soup. We have never had this soup this delicious at any restaurant in any city. The steaks were great but we still have a problem getting a HOT baked potato. Each time I have ordered one, it always comes to the table COLD. Please address this situation. Thank you for having a great place to invite our friends to join us.

    a little slow starting off, had reservations for 6:30, finally was seated after about a 15 minute wait. Then we followed the server around until a suitable table was found, a little disorganized. However, once we were seated, the server did a very nice job of tending to our needs for drinks appetizers and the meal. Overall, it was very nice.

    We showed up 7 min after our scheduled reservation and had to wait 30 min to be seated. Then we had to listen to the waitress give us a 5 minute spill. After she was done trying to sale us the daily special, a $130 meal for 2 (which we bought & were highly disappointed with). We didn't see her again until she brought us our food. We were excited and anxious to get the bread while we waited for our meal, but it never came. We actually ended up getting our full meal before the waitress brought us the bread :( $190 bucks later and disappointed in my choice of restaurants for my gfs bday, I couldn't get over the fact that I just dropped almost $200 dollars and had a bad experience :'( not at all what I was hoping for.

    Our recent dining experience was a disaster. This was a birthday dinner for my wife. Four of us were taken up to a table on the second floor set for two. We were then taken back down to the first floor to a table appropriately set for four. The food was terrible. Two of us ordered steaks. They were not cooked as odered and had to be sent back. So, two of us were eating while the others waited for their steaks be be re-cooked. My fish "special" was almost unedible. It was over cooked and the crab on top was undetectable due to the overwhelming amount of sauce. I could only eat half of this meal as its all my stomach could take. The manager, Rudy, was very apolgetic. We were given a comp dessert and two $50 gift certificates.

    Food was mostly excellent - there were 5 at our table, we all had some champagne and cocktails as well. We ordered Shrimp cocktail and the house Queso for apps. Queso was great, fresh blue corn tortilla chips. Shrimp was somewhat chewy and overcooked. Possibly not as fresh as it could have been? Four of the five of us had the Ribeye - 14 oz. for $37 - steaks were all excellent, came with mashed potatoes and choice of another side. We also had two excellent desserts - a flourless chocolate cake and a cheesecake 'souffle' which was absolutely amazing. They also brought out a special little birthday dessert for my mom. Service was somewhat lackluster and perfunctory which is annoying for a meal that cost, with tip, close to $500.

    This is a good spot for a change. Very nice facility, very nice and accommodating staff. Service was good, and the food was good. Drinks were good as well. We brought a friend from out of town to see the area and we all thought that the evening was fine given our purpose. Having said all that, the restaurant is not a place that has any grace about it, and we would never consider it for my wife's birthday or our anniversary. Nothing romantic, special, endearing, etc. Just a good steakhouse, with a clever Texas twist.

    Can't beat the view at Steiner Ranch. Sometimes very good live band. Nice crowd. Food is so so. If you like steak, better choices downtown (even the chain places like Flemings). Food heavily salted, servers could be better trained and are a bit erratic. But when the sun is going down over the Lake with a drink in hand and some good music this doesn't matter so much.

Our waiter did a great job explaining different items on the menu and making suggestions. The restaurant was quaint and the ambiance is beautiful! The steaks were superb! My husband ordered the she crab soup as an appetizer and it was delicious! After a nice, quiet, enjoyable meal we went outside and sat by the fire pit to listen to the live band. Again, they were amazing! The entire evening was relaxing, from the meal to relaxing near the bar with a drink and some excellent music! Will definitely be returning.

    The service came from an inexperienced server and the maitre d's customer skills &etiquette were lacking. The place made mistakes in food service but no sincere apology was made nor was there comping of the items that weren't even eaten because the error was finally corrected near the end of the meal. Food substitutions were made w/o informing us i.e. romaine for field greens and cranberry juice for Apple juice. Ignorance or lies were apparent in what was in one dish. Imitation lobster was in one even though they insisted it was real lobster. There is an obvious difference in taste and texture of the two from past experiences. Quality of the steak in other than the filet was questionable. Steak was fatty & had connective tissue.

I have been a restaurant and a bar manager for 17 years and his knowledge and how he handled himself was great! Nice to see such amazing service still out there. He greeted u within 2 minutes, drinks out within 8. And from there, he kept suggesting. Made sure we got the right appetizer to go with our main course. Great job John!
