This was one of the best experiences I’ve had in terms of fine dining with vegetarian and vegan needs. The staff was very accommodating with one of our parties needs for gluten-free options as well. Each dish that came out was delicious, beautifully presented, and exceptionally thoughtful. Highly recommend and definitely worth the price.

About the restaurant
Jeffrey's Restaurant & Bar has been an Austin fine dining institution since 1975. In 2012 the restaurant closed for a major renovation and was reopened by McGuire Moorman Lambert Hospitality. The legendary restaurant, nestled in the Clarksville neighborhood just west of downtown, features a lively bar and three distinct dining rooms. The menus, from executive chef Mark McCain, features dry-aged prime steaks, updated classic fine dining, and locally sourced produce. The award-winning wine list, one of the largest and most diverse in Texas, features highly-sought after vintages from Old and New World producers. Private dining in the Napoleon Room and The Apartment is available for special events. Valet service is offered.

The charming neighborhood location, old world service & multiple private dining options make Jeffrey's a true Austin gem. Jeffrey's was named “Top 10 Best New Restaurants” in the country by Bon Appetit magazine in 2013.

Went for my wife and I’s first anniversary and had an amazing experience. They brought out complimentary champagne and had a celebration card waiting for us at the table. If you like seafood, you have to get the scallops. The steaks are juicy and tender and the espresso martini was to die for. Amazing service and good, overall 10/10 experience.
