Apis Restaurant and Apiary offers elegant cuisine in a rustic yet refined atmosphere. Apis aims to offer Hill Country residents and visitors a unique and exquisite dining experience, gracefully refined for special occasions, yet relaxed enough to become your regular culinary sanctuary. Apis, located at Highway 71 and the Pedernales River, is named for and inspired by the honeybee. With a few honeybee hives onsite, and more with our partners, Jack Ranch, and TerraPurezza, the apiary provides our house honey and represents the cycle of sustainability.

                                            World class dining experience. The food is insanely inventive and flavorful. Do not skip the snacks! The cocktails are fantastic and the wine selection is great. Service is amazing, and the staff is homey and welcoming. The value is off the charts, especially if you choose the pre fix option. I can’t recommend this restaurant enough. Chef Taylor Hall and the Apis team are killing it.

                                            Quiet and reserved. Quaint and cozy. The ambience legs ourself to a feeling of ease and even though you are close to neighbors you don’t hear their conversations. The food was exquisite unique. And flavorful.

                                            The entire experience exceeded my expectations. Food was superb! service excellent, ambience was perfect. Asia provided amazing service and was extremely knowledgeable. I would say the experience was Epic! There is one comment, I did get the sense after 3 other tables became occupied that I was put on a timetable to move quickly to compete entree dessert and check. Perhaps a sudden increase in reservations for my table or perhaps I was enjoying the experience and savoring the food and drinks so much that I lingered too long and needed some ushering. I’ll be back!

                                            Outstanding in all ways. The service is the best in the business. Chef Taylor and his crew are true artists and we are blown away each time we come. Thank you guys for all that you do.

                                            We went to APIS during the Valentines Weekend, so we were required to pick from a pre fixe menu for $95/person. This included snack (egg toast was delicious), appetizer (both foie gras & beef tartar were awesome), main (fish and duck were both good - but fish was much more interesting), and then dessert (both raspberry frozen dessert plus the pavlova were amazing). We also shared the mid course stuffed quail, but probably could have skipped that portion-wise, but the flavor was great! Cocktails were delicious, made with the local honey, and just spectacular. Service was excellent all the way around. We were both happy and enjoyed the experience very much. They sent me home with a rose as a little extra sparkle on top of a lovely evening. High recommend. Very delicious. A bit of a drive out of Austin, but go while the sun is still out to be able to catch the vistas along the way!

                                            We have been long time fans of Apis. Although we live nearby, we would make the drive no matter where we lived. I've considered even starting a shuttle from Austin so that they could reach more people. If this restaurant was in Austin, it would be booked solid and we would probably never get a table. Several staff members have been at Apis for years and their passion for great food, great cocktails and service is evident. Why drive to Apis? They make their own breads, butter, honey, raise their own animals, their cocktails are wonderful, inventive and (recently won Drink of Austin), their food is consistently great and their longtime staff are simply the best. When we travel, we plan our trips around food and have dined at several Michelin rated restaurants. I would put Apis up there with those restaurants.

                                            Fixed prix menu for Valentines Day dinner was awesome. It was one of the best dinning experiences my wife and I have ever had. We will definitely come back and try them on a regular night.

                                            First the good: the food was incredibly well done. Really. Now the bad: my wife and I had long-standing reservations here for Valentine’s Day. When we arrived 10 minutes before our time, we were notified that we would be seated in the bar. Or alternatively, we could wait for what appeared to be a half-hour. Biggest damn bait and switch I’ve encountered dining. They knew we were hostage, and that we were incapable of doing anything but putting up with it, or leaving. Got bar-level service to boot. So sadly, their ruse worked. Once per lifetime. Hope it was worth if folks. Shame on you.

                                            We had a wonderful experience celebrating Valentine’s Day at Apis. Despite a busy night, we never felt rushed. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable including recommending a bottle of wine. My only regret is the main dish I chose. A couple of dishes seemed saltier than we would have preferred. We’ll ask for less salt next time. Apis is wonderful special occasion place to dine with a delightful ambian

He never made us feel like we were being rushed. The bartenders were very knowledgeable & fun to talk with. Overall, we had an amazing experience & will definitely recommend Apis to our friends & family.

                                            Food was amazing! And wait staff very knowledgeable about what they were serving, giving very detailed descriptions. VERY FOODIE FOOD, which we love, all excellently prepared! They do ask you to order ALL of your courses at the beginning (and they do bring them out in a perfectly timed fashion), for a Prix Fix menu night, and be aware they bring out EXTRA courses that you don’t know about. THEY WERE GREAT, but we ended up VERY FULL because we ordered the pre-course not included in Prix Fix, and we ordered a cornbread middle course (also not included in price). We could have SKIPPED these 2....but they were yummy. Would help the ambiance a bit if they turned the lights down just a touch.

                                            The service at APS was the best I’ve had in Austin in recent memory. The ingredients were fresh and the dishes were presented in a beautiful way. We will absolutely be back and are thankful to have discovered this special restaurant!

                                            A gem on the edge of the Texas Hill Country. The food is spectacular, and the honey/bee influence, as well as the local sourcing, makes the experience feel particularly special.

                                            Amazing food and service. When you order a bottle of wine they don’t leave it at the table which is odd.

                                            Everything we had was very good to great. 3 course meal and went with the 40 day dry aged ribeye for main course, which was very good, but I would probably pass next time given the upcharge. Foie gras was very tasty, extremely rich.
