We had a wonderful evening of great food and wine in a peaceful setting conducive to great conversation. Haven’t been to The Driskill in years and plan to return.

We go out for our anniversary every year and always try to go somewhere different. This was our big 10 and the Driskill did us right! The menu said “happy anniversary” on it and the waiter brought out champagne and said “I heard it’s your anniversary, I hope you don’t mind some bubbles.” We were so pleased- what a fun surprise! The food was phenomenal- we ordered the salmon charcuterie and filets mignon. Then they surprised us once again with a chocolate cake that had “Happy Anniversary” drizzled in chocolate syrup on the plate. They outdid themselves! After this dinner compared to all the others we’ve had, we might stop trying new places and make the Driskill our new anniversary tradition.

excellent service, the wood and glass work is beautiful and that is before you have a great meal. It was even cheaper than several of the other restaurants downtown.

Beautiful historic building drew us in for the experience, but the food and wine we're underwhelming for the price level. There are many better meals and drinks in the area in the same 30-50 dollar plate price range. Website is not up to date with the menu, and the cafe in the front is indeed open for dinner.

This was my wife and I second visit. We really enjoy the food and service. Drinks were also good and did the job

Filet and sea bass were amazing, as was the dessert. The waitress was friendly and prompt.

The food tasted really bad. It was the worst food that I tried in Texas. All the dishes came to the table cold and with no taste at all. We went there during News Year dinner and me and my family could not finish any dish. The dessert was the worst of all. We were really disappointed to pay that much for a food that was not good at all.

Prix fixé NYE meal with my family of 6. It was at best a decent hotel meal. In a city like Austin with amazing dining choices, this felt like dining in a Holiday Inn, not the famous Driskill Hotel. Food was cooked to order but was nothing special nor imaginative. We dine out much more than average. The bar outside the steakhouse was however much better than average and wine chosen for the pairings with coursed meal was all EXCELLENT. Go for drinks or a solid business dinner and don't expect anything exciting and you'll be fine.
