I never write reviews, but good lord was this horrible. We went for Valentines Day and were charged an arm and a leg for below than average service, rookie wait staff, small portions, and kind of a cheesy ambiance.
Worst experience eating out I’ve had in a while.
Had the prefix menu for valentine's day. appetizer was very good. steak was just ok. for the money, steak was definitely not up to the standard.
I had two dinner at this restaurant on a recent trip to Austin. What a great find. The first night was a business dinner and the second was a catch up with one old friend. The food, service and ambiance could not have been better on both nights.
We especially enjoyed Joseph, our server. He has wonderful recommendations and was just attentive enough.
Thank you for two perfect evenings!
Excellent service, EVERY TIME Delicious food, EVERY TIME. And bomb cocktails 3 course special is a steal!
Surprisingly one of the best meals I've ever had!
The ambience and the food were excellent. The only problem was our waiter, who while exuding friendliness and courtesy seemed to forget about our orders at times. We ordered an appetizer that never came. When we saw our salads coming out I asked about our appetizer. He said he was intending to bring them out after the salad! We had ordered the appetizer about 15 minutes before ordering anything else. When he was available, he was quite friendly, but he was not often available.
What a find! We were Louie's 106 fans for many years until they closed and this is a great replacement. Food is very good and the staff excel at making you feel important to them. It's quiet so conversation is easy. Not a formal interior but sleek and clean with open kitchen views (did not hear ANY kitchen noise). We would return for special occasions, a meal with friends, or business.
Anniversary & New Year’s Eve
Superb service and a great menu full of options all over the place made for a great meal after a movie at the IMAX.
I wish I could give the service another star—it was great. We had a one-year-old, and the house / food could not have been better: from her house-made buttered noodles to her special berry dessert. We adults of course loved our chicken fried quail and smoked pork chop entrees!
You're chef is amazing! Best meal ever in Austin. Service was exceptional as well. Convenient validated parking. Will be back!
We hosted an 11-person dinner at The Carillon to celebrate our daughter who was graduating from UT. The service and food were excellent. The prix fixe menu is a great value, and the charcuterie and cheese boards were a nice starter for the table. I would recommend The Carillon for dinner whether you are staying at the Hotel or not. The garage parking is validated, which is especially nice for non-hotel guests.
Always a treat! Food and service are amazing!
Always a favorite of mine here in Austin. Predictably civilized. They are gracious, the chairs are comfortable for an extended evening, the noise level allows conversation, the food is excellent, and the wine cellars are extensive. There are many foodie places that regularly get my business but I keep coming back to the Carillon when the wooden benches and overamplified rooms wear me down. Cheek and jowl is SOP on the menu's of some of the hotter spots and the Carillon is the best antidote in town.
It's a nice place. Old-school values. I went because 100% recommend it. After eating there I realize that the 100% is because it's not offense rather than because it's great. I probably won't go back because I think the place is generally uninspired. They're very nice.
