We have had dinner here a couple of times, and have really been impressed with the entire experience. Tonight's waitress, Liza (?) was great - very attentive, very thorough, very friendly. My husband carries a business-like card with his alcoholic drink preference because of its complicated nature...the bartender came to the table to acknowledge the card, and was so cool. The food was delicious, and with the "3 for $35," a wonderful value. We will definitely return.

We had dinner at Carillon prior to the UT-OSU game to celebrate my stepson's birthday. Not only was the food delicious, the manager and staff went over the top to make it extra special with a champagne toast, customized printed menu, and a birthday card signed by all the staff. Totally unexpected and much appreciated!

Inventive cuisine, served well. We had a theater obligation and when we explained that to our server, she made sure we got out in time. The place is very quiet, allowing guests to hear one another without shouting. I highly recommend.

I wholly affirm all the positive reviews for The Carillon. And I'll add that my wife and I were particularly impressed with the 5-star customer service. We often comment that customer service is a lost cause in America, but the staff here had us believing again! Thanks for all the ways you made our 10-year anniversary dinner so special...especially for a couple of USC Trojans fans :)

We had a wonderful experience with our teenage son before going to enjoy Les Miserables at Bass Concert Hall. Our server, Cynthia, was excellent and attentive as well as the sommelier and rest of staff. We will definitely be back.

We had reservations after the LSU UT football game. I think they were just understaffed. I’ll try again and hope to have a better experience.

Shhhhh! This is a very underrated gem in Austin. Fine food. Fine cocktails. Fine wine. The rib eye was tender and cooked to perfection. The beef carpaccio was a light and flavorful start to our meal. The lemon lemon lemon dessert lived up to its name. This restaurant is quiet! No shouting to your dining companion. We eagerly look forward to going back.

The Carillon is by far our favorite restaurant. We absolutely love dining here! The staff always make us feel welcome and the food is by far one of the best we've ever had. Every dish is delicately crafted to please the eyes as well as your taste buds. The local and fresh ingredients are masterfully prepared to balance each other with each bite. I can go on forever, but The Carillon simply offers the best. We are lifelong customers!

The Carillon staff were Welcoming and Attentive! We were from out of town and thought we could give this place a try. The new Chef did a great job on presentation of the dishes! The George Banks Scallops was my chosen dish. I would like it a bit more moist and flavorful. The Steak! Yum! It was cooked to perfection along with being nice and tender! The Dessert, Chocolate Mousse was incredible! Keep up the Hard Work!

One of the best meal experiences I have had in Austin! The selection, quality and service were superb. Seasonal ingredients prepared in creatively scrumptious dishes. Had the soft shell crab appetizer, snapper entree and buttermilk strawberry rhubarb panna cotta dessert. My mouth is watering just recalling the details! The beverage selection was equally satisfying and had a great Willamette Valley pinot noir that was unfamiliar. I cannot wait to return on another trip.

The 3 course pre fix meal is an excellent value. Our table had several entrees and they were all very good and ample servings. The best dessert by far was the lemon lemon, the corn pound cake was just ok. The atmosphere is quiet and very nice. Our service was excellent -she was attentive and engaging

Impecable service as always. Wonderful spring menu. And the smoked crab rillettes to die for. Initially, the oysters were not available then were brought to us when someone cancelled their order. How nice of the staff. Thank you, Oscar! Love the oysters here. This has become our monthly go to. Always very good experience.

The Carillon was convenient for dinner before an event at Bass Concert Hall. Wednesday dinner specials (wine & cheese board, prix fixe menu) were a bonus! The scallops and the red snapper were both delicious. The chocolate banoffee mousse was delightful. We look forward to dining here again.

Food is always good. I noticed a bit of a decline in waitstaff service, but nothing that was bad, just less than their usual 5 star level. (waitress kept on announcing prices of meals when I told her not to mention price since I was paying all; server poured soup into bowl in front of me from too high a level, splashing soup on me and table; wine steward spent too long on explanations of wine pairings while our food sat getting cool) I will go back, no doubt. The food, wine, and surroundings are wonderful!

We visit the Carillon often, the most recent time for a birthday celebration. The ambiance is quiet and refined. The menu is not large, but each item is thoughtfully and expertly prepared. We often go on Tuesdays when they have northeast oysters at $1 each, a great deal. Each weekday evening they also have a 3 for $35 deal with a choice of an appetizer, a main course, and a dessert for $35 - an outstanding value. Service is excellent.

This is a wonderful restaurant on the UT-Austin campus. It was difficult to find, we struggled with the parking garage and the signage, but ultimately found it - 30 minutes after our reservation time. The food was excellent and beautifully prepared. I would recommend this restaurant.
