    Three business associates out in Austin. Vince Young's was right across from our hotel and came highly recommended. The service was impeccable, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was superb. Ahi Tuna, Ribeye and NY Strips were devoured quickly. Side were generous and equally well prepared. Its a bit expensive, but still a great place to eat in Austin.

    We went for a special anniversary, and enjoyed perhaps the nest steaks we've ever eaten. They made great suggestions for wines, and in spite of the fact that our primary waiter was a little sluggish, the rest of the crew more than made up for it. They also sent a nice complementary dessert to commemorate our anniversary. Overall, it was a great experience!

    Had dinner at Vince Young's Steakhouse with my husband and my mother on a Saturday night. Everyone in the restaurant was very friendly. Waiter was exceptionally good and the food was to die for. The steaks were tender enough to cut with a fork and the seafood was wonderful. Overall, a wonderful dining experience. The price was no more than you would expect in any upscale restaurant. Will definitely be going back.

    This was our first visit to Vince Young Steakhouse. There were 5 of us and the waiter was good to point out that we could share starters and vegetables. Unfortunately, we did not heed his advice. The portions were perfect for sharing, so we really ordered too much. The entrees were cooked perfectly and were absolutely delicious. I had my leftover steak (bone-in ribeye) for dinner last night (3 days later) and it was still delicious. We ordered 3 of the desserts: chocolate cake (ok), flourless torte (rich and moist - wonderful flavor), and the home-made ice cream. I am still thinking about that ice cream and wondering if you can buy it by the pint. The only drawback is the price, but we also over-ordered.

    This was our first time to visit and we had an early reservation. We prefer to eat earlier in the evenings in general. Small steak and the duck breast were both perfectly prepared. Shrimp cocktail was good, as were the InVINCEable drinks. Had a wonderful piece of chocolate cake brought out in celebration of my birthday too; mousse icing on it was extra great. For our sides we had the creamed spinach, really good garlic cream sauce while the asparagus was just ok. Excellent place for dinner but it is on the pricey side. We enjoyed it.

    This was our first time visit to Vince Young's and it exceeded expectations beyond words. The atmosphere, the decor, the staff, and then came the food... OMG. Presentation and quality was to die for. Absolutely fantastic in every way, shape, and form. We then headed to the bar for after dinner dessert, Chocolate Martini's, the best ever and had to have two. Yum! Would I recommend Vince Young's? ABSOLUTELY.

    Our server,Michael, was a gem. He epitomizes what excellence should be for the ultimate pleasure in dining out. Michael offered a taste of beer for me and a taste for selection of a wine for one of the ladies. He very carefully explained how the meal would be served,gave us plenty of time to make our selection,thanked us for being there,and joined us in conversation. In all my years of dining I cannot recall anyone who made us feel special. We were so happy to include us in pointing out music venues, for our out-of -town guests. Again I cannot say enough good things about our experience. The steaks were melt in our mouths, the sides were prepared perfectly,just right temperature,and on and on. What a joy! Perfect

    This restaurant is incredible. We have eaten at some of the best restaurants in the world and this one stands toe to toe with them. We had the best steaks we had ever eaten. We are huge steak lovers so that is quite a compliment from us. We started out with the quail and the grilled Cesar salad. The was quail was delicious alone but the sauces provided an extra layer of incredible flavors. The grilled Cesar is a must try. A nice twist on a menu staple. The bone-in ribeye was cooked to perfection. The mushrooms and the bleu cheese were both excellent toppers. However, the steak stood on its mouthwatering own without them just as well. The price was a little higher than what you might see on some menus but worth every penny.

    We were blown away! The food was absolutely amazing. We shared the crab cake and it was enough for two people. My steak was perfectly cooked and his brown sugar topped pork chop was 2-3 inches think. We shared the bacon mac and cheese and the fries. The bacon is delicious and so are the fries. We could not stop eating the house ketchup. We both had dessert that was to die for. The best part of the meal was the cornbread. We kept asking for more. We visited for our anniversary and will definitely be back. Best restaurant and best food. I can honestly say it was the best meal either of us have ever had. Everything was prepared perfectly. They even called the next day to make sure everything was ok. High class restaurant.

    Steak was good, but not great as I was expecting. Sides were underwhelming. Frankly, I expected a much better meal. I can get a higher quality steak and dining experience at a significantly lesser price in Austin. Very expensive for the level of quality. On a more positive note, the room lighting, decor and ambiance get high marks... The service was good. I wish I had a better experience. I don't have a problem with the pricing level as long as the quality is commensurate with the lofty prices. It wasn't. I will not likely return.... or refer others.

    As always, VY Steakhouse delivers an exceptional dining experience. Great food, special atmosphere, and super service. Steaks are the top of the line. Love the Burnt Orangetini. The only negative--my 20 year old daughter requested a non-alcoholic fruity drink, and the waiter acted like that was an impossible request. Really?! At a restaurant of this high caliber? Y'all could come up with something. Our waiter was just OK. It was my Birthday, but he didn't strive to make it special. The reason I gave 4 Stars for service was because service is a team effort here--everyone else was great. In the past, we've had amazing waiters.

    Although this restaurant has gotten some bad reviews, I would not be dissuaded by them. The prices are high, but they are in line with other steakhouses downtown and the food and the ambiance are excellent. My husband had a dry aged bone in steak and I had scallops. We shared the mashed potato, cream spinach, and asparagus sides and they were all perfectly cooked as well. The service was particularly outstanding and our 6 year old daughter was treated very kindly. Vince Young has a kid's menu on a tablet computer with games! Our daughter loved it and well behaved all evening because she wasn't bored! She was also served her ice cream in a souvenir football helmet, another nice touch.

    Drove into Austin last minute just for one night. Was looking for a good steak and found it just across the street from the hotel (Hyatt Place). Service and food was amazing, we were a group of 6. Their Mac and Cheese is absolutely a must try, everyone tried different cuts of steak and were not disappointed. I will add this to my list of places in Austin not to miss on the next visit.

    My husband and I went to visit this great restaurant and we were both highly pleased with our entire experience! Gary was our waiter and he was very knowledgable of the menu and friendly, providing superb service. I had the bone in filet and it was the BEST filet I have ever had. My husband had the aged sirloin and was very pleased with that as well. We ordered corn with bacon and mac n cheese with bacon for shared sides. They were remarkable! I highly recommend this great establishment!
