Offering a bat's-eye-view of Lady Bird Lake and the downtown skyline, Geraldine's is named after the famed guinea fowl that once roamed Rainey Street. Respect for Austin's history and culture seeps into every part of the restaurant, from the local ingredients featured in our Chef's contemporary menu to the nightly concert lineup—because there is no Austin without live music. Take shelter from the Texas sun at our adjacent rooftop lounge, complete with private cabanas and outdoor seating.

    I took my lady out for her birthday and we really liked the ambience. It is an upscale place with a nice vibe. We were there too early for the live music but definitely will go later next time. The food was absolutely remarkable and the service was great. Our only critique was we saw a couple of patrons with dogs in the establishment and there was not of seafood options ... my girlfriend is a pescatarian. However, the good far outweighed the bad and we will definitely be back! I'd certainly recommend.

    I have been to Geraldine's a few times for dinner, but this was the first time I have tried their brunch. The menu selection was quite varied and I had a hard time choosing which meal to enjoy. I had the Salmon Benedict and it was so good. My friends chose the avocado toast and french toast - both of which were also amazing. The cocktail menu was super fun and the live music was a perfect touch. I will definitely be back!

    Excellent atmosphere, excellent food. Very friendly staff. For the starters… the beets were so very delicious, like a dream! And the cucumber salad was also very goodI I loved the fact it wasn’t a standard menu and I completely skipped a main course because I turned my beets into my main dish. And the cucumber salad was a nice starter. Great experience!

    Sat high tops which would normally be fine but the chairs are too low for the table so it’s not comfortable for eating; food was cooked to perfection and the prices were steep; maybe up the portions so we don’t have to order so many plates?

    The Pro’s: - Geraldine’s is beautiful. Like all restaurants in a Kimpton, it’s a chic and well-designed place. - The menu was varied and there was something for everyone in my group. - The sever was just the right kind of attentive and friendly. - The food was good. The Con’s: - I ordered the short rib quesadilla and there was a very long hair literally cooked into the cheese and it was clearly visible to anyone who would have taken the time to glance at it. How the dish was still served to me, I have no clue. - When I politely let my server know, she didn’t ask me if I wanted something else, just apologized and immediately walked away. So then I had to flag her when she came back out and share that I wanted to order something else different than the short ribs again. - Nothing was comped. Not even the $5 coffee. Not one of the drinks. Very odd and showed a lack of consideration.

    First night in Austin for a guys reunion. Found Geraldine’s on OpenTable with availability for our group of 6. They did not disappoint! Our server was awesome with an explanation of how the food is served and recommendations. We nearly had every item on the menu in a sharing format and nobody left hungry.

    Before the pandemic, this was a fantastic restaurant whose food was flawless in taste and well-balanced. We've been back twice in 2022 to give it a final try, and it is unfortunate to share that it hasn't changed. The food was extremely salty, and sauces were overbearing the natural taste of the food. The drinks and their mixologists have changed and are just sub-par, down from fantastic. Not sure what would draw me to the restaurant in the future.
