Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "It's a steakhouse and this is certainly what it does best! Made us thankful we aren't vegetarians... Bacon mac and cheese was exquisite, as well. Service was great, as well, and the restaurant itself is just lovely."

  • "We took friends who had never been to Vince Young Steakhouse, knowing how good it was. And it did not disappoint! From the appetizers to the sides to the entrees, wonderful! Too stuffed to order dessert. Maybe next time!"

  • "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."

  • "Without a doubt, the best steak (and sides) you will find in Austin. Stop searching. When you want a great steak, Vince Young's is the place."

  • "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."

  • "The service and food are always consistently top notch! Whether it's just 2 of you or a group, they never miss a beat. Love love this place! "

  • "We were visiting from New Jersey and wanted to make sure we tried a non chain steakhouse restaurant for dinner. We got a recommendation from a conference employee. You more than met our expectations for food and service and hopefully will be able to come back some day. We will recommend you to others going to Austin."

  • "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!"

  • "We found it very much to our liking! We have a Son in a wheelchair so we were very pleased that the complete layout was wide and roomy, easy in and out and plenty of room around our table. Our Server Gary was extremely helpful and knowledgable going above and beyond by helping to cut up our Son's food. We will be back, so don't change a thing!"

  • "The steaks here are truly amazing. The blue cheese topper is awesome! The steaks were cooked to perfection. The bacon mac and cheese and creamed spinach were also awesome. The only two things that were not quite as great were the pork belly appetizer and the orangetini drinks. They were both just okay."

  • "We went for our anniversary. Very nice ambiance. Hostess and servers were very professional and friendly. The wine was very good. We asked the server to choose. Our steaks were outstanding. I had, hands down, the best bone-in ribeye of my life (to date). Each bite from first to last was spectacular. No foo foo steak add-ons needed. It was pricey but the night exceeded my expectations. Go!"

  • "Steakhouse with a Southern twist. Beautiful decor. Can't wait to check out the bar. I tried the Perfect Ten--server claims it's free-range......I am so happy to find a steakhouse with one free-range beef option because that is the only steak I will eat. It was really, really delicious. Topped it with Crab Oscar and it was so good. Tuna carpaccio was okay......everything else great. Great chocolate cake for dessert. Wish the desserts got more attention, especially with the Southern influence. Would love a fantastic pecan pie or some outstanding strawberry shortcake. Overall, I really liked it. Stylish, delicious spot for dinner and I am planning my next return!!"

  • "This was our second celebration at VYS. It was almost as spectacular as last time. We made last minute reservations, so we could not get the nice anniversary/private seating like last time, but everything was awesome. When we thought about where to celebrate the conclusion of a Ph.D. Program and then a recent ordination, VYS was on the top of our list. It kept it's position for future consideration and there is no question that we will be back again and again."

  • "We've enjoyed several meals at VY Steakhouse over the years, so it was sad to see how much the place has declined since our last visit. The food is still good, but nowhere near as good as the price was high. It was a slow night, but the service--from the valets to the hostess to the wait staff--was lethargic and clearly just going through the motions. We expect quite a bit more for the money that they charge and we came away very disappointed with our whole experience. I'm sorry to say that we will probably not return to what was once our favorite steakhouse in town."

  • "Russell was an outstanding professional as he waited on us. Excellent suggestions, great sense of humor, made an excellent meal in a wonderful restaurant into a night to remember. It is a lovely place, elegant, understated, with a sense of privacy in the seating. The food is exceptionally good, all of the folks in the restaurant were wonderful, thoughtful and gracious."

  • "Every second Saturday of May, me and four of my friends meet at VY's. If you go you must try the Perfect 10! It is as perfect as VY was in the National Championship game. The steak is heavily marbled if you like that like I do. The best waiter ever born is Russell, he is a must have when you go."

  • "First, the place is gorgeous. The ambience alone made me whish I had brought a date instead of it being a business dinner. The Invincble was a great margarita and I had the crab cake for an app. Absolutely delicious!!! The steak...22oz bone in Ribeye was cooked to perfection and was undoubtedly the best steak I have had in years. Had bacon Mac n cheese and fries for sides, creamy Mac n cheese and the fries were really homemade. Each side is big enough for two. VYs was the perfect end to my visit to Austin and I will definitely make it a point to visit again. 👍👍👍😊"

  • "Wonderful evening. Valet parking staff was responsive. Hostess welcomed us with a "Happy Anniversary" greeting. Promptly seated (nice alcove). Pre-ordered flowers were pre-positioned. Waiter & wait staff were cordial, knowledgeable, & attentive. My wife's filet was perfect, no waste whatsoever. My ribeye was a generous 14oz. Salads were fresh & well presented. Sides (Bacon Mac n Cheese & Asparagus) were tasty; the Asparagus was tender. We enjoyed the wine & the restaurant treated us to a nice chocolate moose cake exquisitely decorated for the occasion. Coffee was delicious. Will we return; probably? Austin has several fine restaurants & we enjoy trying different ones; this said, our evening here was so enjoyable, we're likely to return."

  • "My girlfriend and I went to VY Steakhouse for dinner last weekend, and couldn't have been happier with the experience. It was very spacious, so we didn't feel like we were sitting on top of the other patrons there, and the restaurant itself is beautiful. We both left stuffed, and even though I'm a big dessert guy, there was no way I could have eaten more."
