Amazing food experience! Delicious shareable plates and friendly service. Recommendations were spot on, very much appreciated. We will be back next month!
Food was completely delicious, service was great.
Food and service was outstanding. One of the best dining experiences in Austin
Drinks were amazing. Pasta was good. Fish was terrible. Waiter didn’t care.
Food was top notch - Standouts were summer squash, chicken thigh, and the tres jugos.
Staff are always busy and food is ran quickly but primary waiter could have been around a few times more - had to wait a good while for our second drink order.
Price was a little on the higher end - for $125 a person, I would expect to be more full when leaving.
Sort of bummed that this was marked for a birthday, yet no mention of it at all.
Great chef’s menu with wine pairing for my husband’s birthday! ER is very accommodating to a food allergy and hot spice issue. Wine pairing was fantastic also!
Super interesting combinations of food. Definitely worth it and these are recipes you wouldn't try at home -so complex. It was a fun meal.
We had an absolutely fantastic dining experience; the food was delicious and well-executed and the service start to finish was perfect. On our next trip to Austin, we will definitely be back.
Wonderful outdoor setting with delicious and unusual small plates dinner.
Our server was wonderful and we had a great time!
Once again, a gastronomic adventure. Small plates to share that are so exotic (except cacio e pepe) that the waiter has to explain them to you. Seasonal offerings with a flair for creative combinations. Really something for everyone. Nice cocktails, adequate wine list. Wish bread service was included to show compiments to the chef for getting every drop of the amazing drizzles and sauces.
Delicious meal and fantastic staff. They all seemed really passionate about the food. Erin was a phenomenal server. Super fun and lively. I actually commented on how well the restaurant was laid out (you're not gonna be near a bathroom) and how the noise level was perfect. Decent playlist too. 5/5 stars for me and will definitely be returning!
Emmer & Rye is an amazing experience. The food is unreal, the staffis knowledgble and pleasant. The whole team wait staff, bartenders management make sure you are taken care of without being overbearing. Loved the whole experience!
The food is creative and the wait staff are friendly and happy to help you navigate their sumptuous menu.
Excellent food, cocktails, and service. The tasting menu was great, would come back.
Sonehwat overpriced but lovely and delicious
AMAZING. Love how their menu always stays soooo fresh and up to date. I’ll always get the classic Cacio E Pepe but their other dishes are always changing. Wine and cocktails were delicious too!
A Foodies delight in all aspects. So happy we were able to experience such a great meal.
Service was impeccable and felt there was a joy to be working at such a cool place. Keep up the good work!!!!!!!
We had a great experience! We enjoyed the tasting menu, such a variety of interesting food. Our service was amazing!
Beautiful menu with amazing food dishes. Waitress was great. Loved that when they delivered the food they’d explain all of the ingredients and how they complimented each other to create dishes.
Highly recommend the tasting menu! Our waiter was amazing and extremely knowledgeable. Would defneitly come back here when I come back to Austin!
Server was great, and knowledgeable. The food was amazing as always. Everyone need to try this place.
The tasting menu and wine pairings were outstanding. Each course was creative and beautifully presented. Our server, Alex, was great - passionate about the food and wine and all the thoughtful effort that goes into producing each dish
Expected a refined tasting menu. My date requested vegetarian which the waitress said could absolutely be accommodated. Two of the dishes were granola and yogurt with various fruit. Very sneaky of them to serve two of basically the same dish in a tasting- besides the fact that they were sweet breakfast plates similar to a parfait you may get at a coffee shop. Other than that, the texture and innovation was interesting but none of the flavor palettes worthy of a tasting menus. Way overpriced for what it is. And some of it very salty. Just not what we were hoping for.
We were a family of four w 2 kids. Everything was professional, playful, carefully executed and delicious. Loved it all. Especially hospitality from our server Erin!!
The dinner pre-fix was the best way to go! So yummy!
The food was amazing. Everything had such interesting flavors but came together so nicely - fancy food at a not fancy price. Get the tres jugos dessert if you have room. Ambience was really pleasing and farm to table vibe - seeing all the chefs do their work in the kitchen was incredible! Waiters were all very pleasant and met all our needs. Food also came out super fast. It made our Austin trip very special - and located on Rainey St. so great location to get a cocktail after.
Elegantly plated. Flavors paired very well. Will definitely be coming back soon.
It was an overall great experience, both food and service.
Waitstaff was amazing! So thorough, informative, and helpful. The most delicious dinner:)
Great restaurant. Food is very inventive. Highlight was the black garlic ice cream with chocolate sauce and fermented tomato dust.
Really enjoyed the meal…I might have picked some of the dishes served on my own, but certainly not all of them and I’m glad I just let the staff bring us dish after dish of their choice. The food was delicious and creative. The staff was so knowledgeable about the food and all of them genuinely seemed to enjoy working there and the joy was infectious. Such a treat of an evening
The most perfect birthday meal. The tasting menu is sublime, and we really cannot recommend this place enough. Alex's wine knowledge is crazy in-depth and highly appreciated (we nerded out a lot). Exquisite food in an amazing city. Hard to beat
Best restaurant in all of Austin! A foodies paradise!
Delicious, interesting food. A very memorable experience with friendly service. A must-do in Austin!
Aunque la comida no siempre era estupenda, siempre era buena e interesante. El restaurante es una experiencia, y uno de los mejores en Austin.
Loved everything, Margaret was an amazing server and the drinks were delish too! Fave was the yellow fin per Margaret’s recommendation.
