Great food - fun place to dine. Pricy, but one is paying for the experience and variety. A special treat. Four stars for service because it took them forever to get us out of there (got there at 5:00, had to request check to get out by 7:10). Fantastic salad bar and the meats are delicious. Noisy and packed, but part of experience. A special treat place. I'll be back.

Easy parking, handicapped accessible.
Once your seated ( quickly ), your given a card with a red and green side and instructions on how they work. Green- bring food, red- stop bringing food. Then you are sent to a beautiful salad bar.
Once you are done with that, you flip your card to green and they bring a clean plate and then the meat comes. They carry it around on these rotisserie type skewers and cut off slices, from beef ribs, lamb chops, leg of lamb, a lot of different types of pork to a perfectly seared rib eye.
Everything was fantastic.
Save room for desert and have the mango cream with the currant liqueur. It is to die for.
An excellent evening and a great anniversary dinner.

We have been here on multiple occasions and every time the employees are incredibly friendly and helpful. The manager stops by to see if there's a cut of meat that we would like and make sure it's delivered. We have had large graduation parties there with 30 people and the service doesn't lag.

Very mediocre food for the price. If you go when they are not busy it seems like they just reheat the meat that is circling around. I would recommend going during a busy time. The alcohol seemed to be cheap, and for $12 it shouldn't be the cheap stuff. I would recommend going to a steak place and ordering a steak, you will be much happier.

Food would have been better if the lamb was over cooked and tough. Also, more items should be on the salad bar.

We came here for my younger brother birthday. It wasn’t as great as the first time we came for my husband birthday. A little disappointing for the price that you pay. We had made reservations and put a note that it was his birthday and I don’t think they even acknowledge my note, when I went up to the host stand to check if they seen it , she said she would let our server know. He ended up coming but instead gave his dessert in a to go box and just said “here you go.”

Service was great, food outstanding but the mariachi band was extremely loud and went on and on and on and on. One or two songs would have been acceptable but they continued to play for 30 minutes or so and we ended up leaving because we couldn’t listen to each other talk...the reason we went in the first place.
I would suggest putting a group with loud entertainment in a private room if said entertainment is going to last a while. Very disappointing...we look forward to going to your restaurant and left with a bad taste in our mouth. Sorry

Great food and selection. We have always received excellent service but our last visit was the exception. My husband's cup of coffee was empty most of the meal, we had to continuously flag someone down for refills. They did bring him a small pot but he empty that in a hurry. My water glass was empty most of my meal. 3 different servers told my husband that they would return with a filet medium rare, he didn't get one until he asked a fourth server.

Keep in mind our service was the exception and as always the food was fantastic. The key lime pie is delicious! We will be back.

I've been here a few times, and it's always a wonderful experience. The wait staff and management is so nice and accommodating. I went there with my boyfriend and my sister to celebrate her birthday. At the very end of our meal my sister opened her present at the table and within a few minutes someone came by with complementary champagne to toast to the occasion and a special dessert just for her. They apologized for not noticing that it was her birthday before hand and they seemed genuinely upset that they hadn't. We weren't expecting that at all, it was a very special dinner for her and she couldn't stop talking about it afterwards. They really went above and beyond our expectations. Thank you Estancia for such a beautiful and memorable birthday dinner.

Was on travel to the Austin area and one of my coworkers wanted to go to a steakhouse for dinner. Most of the choices were chain steakhouses. We wanted something different, we were not let down. At first the price was a little off setting but once we sat down to eat it was clear that this was a bargain. Great food, great atmosphere and the staff was outstanding. Next time I'm in Austin this is one my list for return visits. Highly recommended.
