Did not meet our expectations. Steak was good and cooked to perfection, but not great quality and was over salted. Duck breast was too thickly slicked and not we’ll enough cooked. Wine was good. Server Craig was excellent. Ambience good, booths private and conversation-friendly. For the money, should have been better

Lete start by saying, the food is excellent. One of the best crusts on a steak. The potato sides were excellent. The calimari isn't the best, but really good. The only thing that was lacking was the service. The water and support staff were super attentive, but I think we only saw our waitress a total of three times. Once to take our order, one to drop off the food, and then to drop off the check. I don't mind her giving us a bit of privacy, but she also lacked the personally or personability of a waiter/waitress that we've experienced at other steak houses. I will say, this is probably an isolated instance, since the waiter that was serving the table next to ours seemed incredibly attentive and personable, also very knowledgeable with his recommendations.

I made a reservation for Valentines Dinner with my wife. There was a booth with 2 couples that had too much to drink. They were laughing very loud and cussing with the F word. We complained to the manager twice and he never to took care of the problem. Our food was discounted and the quality of the food was fair. We will never go back and do not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

When we got to the restaurant we were promptly seated. That was the highlight of the evening. The waiter we had was sssslllllooowww! It took for ever for our appetizer to arrive and then it took forever for the salads to arrive. When our entry did arrive it was for the table behind us. We had to flag our waiter down to let him know we had the wrong food. Yes, he then took the food off our table and gave it to the table behind us! When our correct entry arrived the wife’s sea bass was mushy as though it was under cooked or left under the heat lamp too long. My steak was average and not much flavor for the price. Both of our baked potatoes were lukewarm, the butter didn’t melt. And the cream corn we ordered never made it to the table?
Note this was on Valentine’s Day with a reservation for 5:15pm. In the section we were in the was about 8 booths and 6 tables with at least 3 waiters. So no, it was not busy. The excuse we got was that the “printer” ran out of ink and that’s what caused the backup. Unfortunately none of the other tables seemed to have an any issues!
Will we be back? NO! One and done....

Food was very flavorful. The waitress was excellent. My wifes $50 steak was kind of burned on the outside, tasted scorched. guy that brought it ( not our waitress) said that was normal, even after we asked for another. It was not replaced. The water had a hint of dishwater flavor to it. We were there 1 hour before closing. Maybe the dish water needed to be changed. I would still go back.

Excellent service. The lamb is wonderful. The salads are good. I did not like the sour-ball candy in the lobby...it's cheap. The house made pickles are interesting...not really the best. (Maybe they need to be better displayed and in new jars. ?? The lobster bisque was too salty. ..My previous visit the lobster was sent back twice. The first lobster was over cooked. The second lobster was too salty. EEK My lemon drop martini was good...it does not compare to TruLucks!! I'm not so sure about this place....

Food was great but service was less than desirable. It felt like if you were not a table of 4 or more you were not waited on as well.

This was a great meal with great service! Also good value because the steak comes w a carrot and potatoes, which is rare for steakhouses! Steak was great. I would definitly go again, i really like their jelly beans that they have instead of mints.

This restaurant exceeded our expectations. Every appetizer, entrée and dessert was delicious. Our service was impeccable. It is not cheap, but it is worth the money! Would go back again and again if I lived in the area. Great place. My team was super impressed.

Our waiter Serge was amazing, witty and classic. He was on point with anticipating any need. Our food was incredible. Easily the best steak in Austin. Everything was cooked perfectly. I came there for my birthday and everyone who greeted me told me happy birthday, which was so classy. They gave me a birthday card and a massive dessert too. It was a chocolate and peanut butter brownie with two kinds of Amy's ice cream. There was a candle, and I made my wish, to come there every year for my birthday. Love Bob's Chop House!

Had heard about this restaurant for years and never made time on my visits to try it out. Finally did this time and it didn’t disappoint. We loved every bite. Sampled the homemade pickles on the table-Big thumbs up. Even my so who hates pickles was impressed. The steaks were perfect !!!! I can’t stress that enough. Perfect in every way. Then we get to the sides. The asparagus was cooked perfectly. But the stars were smashed potatoes and the glazed carrot. So delicious and complimented the steaks so well. Brought out the flavors just as the chef intended. It was a wonderful dining experience and I can’t wait to visit again.

I have been to this location twice in the past few weeks. From the minute you walk in the door, you know the staff is focused on you. Both times the food was outstanding, the service was impeccable and the overall experience was great! I will definitely recommend Bob's to others. The attentiveness of the waitstaff is superb - I love that they refold napkins if you excuse yourself. We had a spill at our table and a fellow staff member that was not attending to our table noticed and laid 2 napkins over it. I've put in special requests and they not only catered to it, but went above and beyond to make the celebration special. The attention to even the smallest of details really makes the experience standout. I couldn't be more pleased with the dining experience.

He also helped with our lost phone issue the next day, as did Audre, the business manager. Keep up good work!!! Thx- Clayton/Katherine

We met some friends at Bobs in from Dallas. HUGE wine enthusiasts. I think the service was more apt to tend to their wine needs than focus on food. 3 steaks came out wrong (cooked well done) and it took 20 minutes to get replacement. In the meantime, the rest of the table had finished their meals (we requested they eat so their food would be hot)

We were very pleased with our first time experience! Our son gave us a gift card for Christmas and wanted us to go have a nice steak & wine. We would normally not treat ourselves to a nice dinner, so this was a treat for us. We will definitely be back! Great service from Valet to dining. Food was amazing, drinks were on point (highly recommend the Pomegranate Martini) and did not have room for dessert, which looked delicious. This was a great date night for my husband and I!

My Wife and I were celebrating our anniversary on 01/12 so I thought we would come here. Excellent choice. From the moment we walked in to the time we left everyone had gone above and beyond to make our night a special one. From the hostess who greeted us with a hand written Anniversary card to our waiter Craig who described in detail everything on the menu and offered suggestions, to Joe the GM for coming by to check on us. Everyone that we had came in contact with that night knew it was our anniversary and congratulated us. We couldn't have made a better choice to celebrate our Anniversary. The food was outstanding, one of the best steaks we had ever eaten and I love my steaks. Words cannot describe how good the food was, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. We will definitely be coming back and we would give the food and the service both 10 Stars each but they only allow 5. Thank you again to Joe and your entire Staff.

Our favorite steakhouse in Austin. We always visit Bob's for special occasions like anniversaries and birthdays. The steaks are always top notch. The fried lobster appetizers is delicious but probably not so good for your cholesterol! The wine list is extensive and Nick is always available with a recommendation. The prices are not inexpensive but you won't be disappointed.

We went on NYE. The food was amazing & our waiter was top-notch - until a little after 11pm struck & we got the check suddenly. I actually wanted a dessert, but he didn't bother to ask. My thought was "I guess they need the table" or "I guess they're trying to clear as many people out before 12midnight for the 'free' champagne toast". They could have moved us to the bar if they needed the table.
