Apis is hands-down the best overall restaurant experience in Austin. The menu never disappoints!
This was our third trip to Apis and it is fun to see how it has matured and developed. The fixed price menu had good choices for all 3 courses. The snacks were not necessary as the portions were good size. Chicken entree was so moist and flavorful, redfish cooked perfectly and the pork trio was excellent
Meeting friends at Poodie's for music, but wanted a good meal beforehand. Hubs had seen Apis online and we love trying new places. It was a long ways from our Northwest Austin home, but honestly, we would drive out there again! The service was super friendly and unpretentious. The food was delicious. It's pricey, but we totally enjoyed it.
Creative and unusual preparations — Excellent service — Always a pleasure to dine here
An interesting food experience with plenty of creativity on the dishes. Most were very interesting and enjoyable. We had one where the seasoning overshadowed the core ingredient, though admittedly we had high expectations for this one. The intro soup and fish platter were very notable. The cheese plate dessert itself was worth a visit, not large but two of the three cheeses were really excellent, with the 3rd one being fine, accompanied by signature honey and a little great light marmalade. Service was very helpful and nicely timed with no rush.
Excellent gourmet farm to table with a bee/honey theme throughout the menu. Had the NY Strip and pork loin for entrees. Both were perfect in every way. Highlight was the sourdough strawberry dessert. Amazing!
I rate everything high except the “value” category because there are places as good or even a little better for a lower price. (E.g Dai Due). Worth a trip though. Nice to get a little outside of Austin.
Way overpriced. $6 up charge for two tiny pieces of lamp was ridiculous. Food was beautifully prepared and service outstanding. Would not recommend for friends or family, too expensive.
Wonderful place for a special occasion. Good for foodies. Attentive staff and comfortable atmosphere. Pricy. We dropped $270 with tip. It was our third visit.
Everything was amazing from top to bottom. I had a bit of a snafu with a missing gift card from a package deal I bought, and the mgr David took care of everything. All the staff, including our server Asia were absolutely top notch.
This restaurant had been on our bucket list for awhile. We were disappointed that reality did not match up with the reviews. The service was top notch but the food was unremarkable. The presentation was nice but the food was just okay. One in our party ordered the lamb. It came out so rare it was not eatable. When it came back it was mostly grissel. We paid nearly $200 for two. We could have stayed close to town and gone to UCHI for that cost.
Everything was fantastic. Only thing to improve might be the music which is from the 1950s I think.
Mother’s Day fixed menu. The food and drink were very enjoyable. Wife and grown kids had a good time.
Excellent menu selection, and very intimate. A terrific find that we will definitely visit again.
Great food! Some items seem a little overpriced for what you get but very tasty and unique!
Absolutely one of our favorite restaurants. We are from the Houston area and own a Lakehouse nearby. We are always blown away by the food, cocktails and amazing service !! The menu is always so artfully prepared and served... FIVE STARS
Beyond expectations. The food was exceptional. I don’t normally eat desserts but the cake wonderful.
Fantastic food: each dish had a multitude of complementary flavors, in unique combinations. Several were unlike any I’d encountered before. Fabulous service: low key but attentive, informed and helpful staff. Reasonable prices for fine dining. (Lousy coffee.) We’ll be back!
Too much effort put into adding exotic add ones to the dishes vs focusing on the basis of the dish itself. Nothing had much flavor.
Everything looked promising in the beginning, but the entrees were mediocre at best - steak was pretty bad, fish was so-so, etc. Bar food is probably better than the prix fixe option
The food and service at Apis was outstanding. We did the prix fixed menu and there were wonderful choices. I compared the value to a few other places we had been in Austin during our vacation week and thought Apis was just a bit pricey.
Its a drive, but worth it. We got there for a late Saturday (8:30) reservation. Took a very long time to seat us. Fortunately the Bar service was great! The food was outstanding, atmosphere is so so. Dining room decor needs a makeover and too bright for an evening dinner, not very intimate. The food will bring us back, and to see what improvements are made.
Outstanding food quality. Chef Taylor Hall is one of Austin's best. I thought the add-on cost for the ribeye was a bit pricey at an extra $28, but the overall value for the prix fixe menu is good. Service was impeccable.
this is truly a gem. Highly recommend taking advantage of their happy hour and pre fixe menus. Our service from start to finish was outstanding. The little touches that are included with the pre fixe dinner courses were an added surprise.
Great wine list, craft cocktails, all farm to table (most of which they own). Make sure to ask about the story behind the opening of the restaurant.
The detail of décor is also very cool.
They are accommodating for all types of food allergies and preferences.
Fabulous food and service,but too noisy.Quiet nooks and softer music would be nice.
Love this place! Great drinks, great food, great atmosphere!
Great service! Jessica did a great job! The food was extraordinary!! Thank you for an incredible dining experience!! We will be back soon!!
Aps is an incredible restaurant and absolutely worth the drive out to Spicewood. This was our second visit there and we did not drive past it this time as we did the first time. The restaurant is warm and inviting - especially nice on a cool rainy night. Unfortunately, the parking lot is not paved, but that was the only minimally negative aspect of our experience. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful in guiding us through the menu. The menu items are very complex with multiple components, but the flavors melded together well in each dish we tried. The overall effect is wonderful. Many of the ingredients are grown locally, and the restaurant has an apiary with their honey appearing in many of the menu items. For dinner there is a three course prix fixe menu, but the choices for each course are more than we could ask. The overall experience is one we will remember for a long time.
The entire meal was delicious. Great service from Patricia! Warm and welcoming atmosphere. Thanks for the good experience, will recommend to others.
Lovely atmosphere, friendly servers, one of the most incredible meals I've ever eaten. All food is locally grown and humanely raised. Awesome special occasion restaurant!
Everything we had was so delicious - from the cocktails to the bread, right on through the Mesquite Honey Cake for dessert. It was a bit of a drive, but worth it to get to a space that feels like a fine dining experience - a nice break from the Austin-casual scene.
The dining room reminded me of a classroom, the lighting/ambience is just off. The food would have been very good but nothing was the right temperature. The soup, the vegetables and even the warm chocolate syrup on the chocolate cake weren’t the slightest bit warm, it was really disappointing.
Also, charging an extra $10 for a piece chocolate cake on a prix fixe menu because it’s “labor intensive” feels pretty low-brow and stingy. I’m happy to pay a premium for a premium meal, but in the end this experience is simply not worth the price tag.
Day before reservation, received call from restaurant to confirm & inform me the price per person would be $14 more than stated when I made the reservation. I asked why & was told the chef brought in some special items. I found this very unfair as it’s not what I signed up for. Couldn’t cancel as it was really the only in between place to meet with our friends. If the chef wants to bring in something, fine. But it shouldn’t be a mandatory charge out of my pocket.
We had a delicious post Valentine’s Day dinner! My husband, a fourth generation Texan, was doubtful that there would be anything he’d like but he, and I, left full and happy. He loved every course, as did I. If you haven’t been to Apis, make plans to go for your next date night or celebration.
It felt like they tried too hard with the dishes, but the flavors seemed all over the place. The dishes didn't seem to mesh. They did have good cocktails. Would be nice if the food lived up to the cocktails.
Second try; no cigar. Valentine's day and the new Plate is not open yet so off to APIS. Fixed price menu not so fixed. NY Strip included but rib eye an extra $4/oz; what. Loud, most seating looking into the kitchen dishwashing area, tables too close. Pork belly was good but isn't bacon always good. My strip could not have been more than three oz and tasted like a HEB select sirloin. Served on mashed potatoes 6 inches in diameter and 1/4" thick, yes, mashed potatoes. Chocolate cake for two (extra $12) was so poor my 5 and 6 year old grandkids would have passed it by. I did find a good bottle of wine. Two cocktails, one bottle of wine, 2 fixed price ??? dinners, plus tip $495. I can't believe anyone in that dining room tonight will ever go back. We had a similar experience last Valentine's day at Hudson's on the Bend; it closed for good the next day.
To me this is a special occasion restaurant. Everything about it is special. The service, the specialty drinks, and of course the food, which you won’t find prepared like this anywhere else.
It is pricey but worth it.
Our wait person, Patricia, was terrific -- extremely personable, completely knowledgeable of everything on the menu, and just the right amount of attention to us, neither not enough nor too much. We'll ask for her when we return. And the food and drinks were exceptional!
This was our first, but definitely not last, visit to Apis. We were celebrating my husband's birthday, and this really felt like a special occasion. Every bite is beautifully served and full of amazing flavor. We ordered off the prix fixe menu, but our server surprised us with three amuse-bouche dishes and an extra dessert. Between sampling off of each others' plates and and all the little extras, we felt like we tried most of the menu, and there was nothing disappointing. Some favorites included the pork rib ravioli, a ginger pickled egg with mushrooms, smoked pork dirty rice, salmon blinis, roasted duck, egg toast (way more impressive than it sounds), and a chocolate cheesecake with cocoa meringue. While our older kids (teenagers) have adult palettes, the server made sure our young daughter had a great meal too, bringing her simple pasta, fresh limeade and extra salmon. Great food, great service--we just wish it was a little shorter drive to get there!
Fantastic creative meal + Exceptional service! Love that Mesquite cake
Great food and service. Menu seemed like it was well thought out so that everything goes together. Staff is very helpful and friendly and is willing to give suggestions if you need them.
