Contemporary American

Nightcap was originally conceived as a place for sweet sustenance and sparkling cocktails. Since then, we have evolved into so much more. Our space is now known as a late night, date night spot for guests and friends alike. The cozy atmosphere is welcoming, romantic and is also a great place to dine solo. It’s a space to make new friends, enjoy some incredibly tasteful food and cocktails that aim to please. Nightcap carries an old school Austin vibe that is hard to be classified as a bar or restaurant. We like to consider ourselves as a nightly dinner party at your friends house. The idea is to come over, have a great time and let us clean up afterwards. On special occasions, glitter is our favorite color that is often paired with bubbles. We hope you join us for any occasion and truly enjoy your evening.

                                          I went because I won a gift card but I was so glad I went! There servers are all sweet and the food selection, while small, is all well-thought out and clearly cooked with care. The owner even came over after our meal to shake our hands and tell us she appreciated us coming in, asked for our names, and personally invited us back. They really value community at this spot :)

                                          While the wait can be long even with a reservation, the food and drinks make up for it. The wait is long because people stick around at the table, and I don’t really blame them. The servers are all very fun as well! Great environment. Amazing food!

                                          Food was excellent, but this was marred by less than average service. Twice we were brought incorrect items, had to request a wine cooler for a $50 bottle of wine, asked for more water that didn’t come. The waiter was pleasant but seemed unable to make the service run smoothly.

                                          If you like dessert beverages, definitely try the 'straight up d*$! It is so delicious! We tried the tuna toast and the grilled cheese. Grilled cheese was a little greasy, but very tasty. Love the ambiance, but gets loud when all the tables are full

                                          Excellent coctails, great outdoor seating. Crispy brussels and burrata and carrots were awesome. Tuna appetizer was like very boring tuna salad on way too much bread. BBQ Shrimp was way too oily, and shrimp were a bit overcooked. Service was very frinedly, but they left a lot of dirty dishes on our table when new food was served, and it took a LOOOONG time to get our coctails. I think our waiter forgot our second drinks until we asked about them again. The bread pudding was like store-bought, and $15 for one! Wouldn't recommend that. Overall, it was a nice evening, but I'm not dying to go back.

                                          I went for Happy Hour (HH) with some colleagues. This place had been on my list for awhile. I was glad we went but not in a rush to go back. The server forgot about us, drinks were extremely delayed and often forgotten. For the price, the food and drink were lackluster and underwhelming. Cute inside environment but you're sitting at picnic tables and benches outside, if you're lucky enough to get a back to your chair.

                                          Lovely staff, but our meal took a loooong time to cook—we were told because an order for wagyu beef went in just before ours and it’s the longest item to cook. We were fine about the length of time since we were celebrating a special occasion—but then they said it would be great if we would move tables for our dessert so they could piece together our 2-top for a larger group. And, brought the bill before we moved to the other table. Dessert and coffee hadn’t even been delivered yet. I understand turning tables, but any delay on our part was because entrees were delayed from the kitchen. Food and ambiance were great and our server comped us a glass of Prosecco for the special occasion at the beginning—but sadly, meal didn’t end well.

                                          Pretty location, but the service was horrible it took the server 15 minutes to greet us. Tables were sat after us and greeted before us. Food was good, but it would have been nice if the charcuterie items were explained to us. We didn’t know what was on the plate. The lavender drink had a whole lavender plant (stems included) in it, which made it difficult to drink. Overall not the best experience, but the ambiance was nice.

                                          First time at Nightcap was on Friday- absolutely loved everything! The service was awesome, attentive, everything you could hope for! The food was amazing- Had the Yellow curry cauliflower, the carrots with burrata, and we split the burger…. everything was incredible. The prices are more than reasonable and the place itself is very hip and attractive. Fast forward to Saturday…. Decided to book a late reservation again at Nighcap because it was perfect the first time. Got there early so had to wait a few minutes-no problem. We were then seated and were told that our waiter( the only guy server i believe) would be with us shortly. Well, we watched as he went in and out from outside as well as attending to two tables - one oc wich came in after us. After about 15 minutes we went to the hostess to let her knos that no one has come to the table to even greet us yet. She apologized and said she would see what was happening. We watched he speak to him but it was at least another 7 minutes until he came over. No apology no my name is, no nothing except what are you folks eating…. we were kind of shocked and saddened. Anyway we ordered the tuna toast, the cauliflower again and the chicken dish. All fabulous except the rice in the cauliflower was a tad crunchy like last bit in a pot. I had to ask for another because of the rice. It came out wonderful the second time. sadly thd second night had these hiccups but we cant wait to go back… Highly recommend. Book early- esp if you want outside- it fills up fast !

                                          The evening and service started out great but went downhill from there. We never got two of our appetizers, and after an hour of waiting on them we said we didn’t mind having them brought out anyways and having them boxed up, but they never came again after re-ordering them. One of our side dishes also never got entered into the ticket and the staff said it was “due to mechanical issues”. We also ordered a bottle of wine with dinner and it never got delivered. By the time we finished our meals, a waitstaff came to check on us and realized the wine was never delivered. The restaurant seats too many people for the amount of staff they have. I can understand being short staffed, but once the restaurant got busy our small table was completely forgotten about. We probably saw the waitress 3 times in the first 20 minutes and then only once the entire rest of the two hours we were there. Rather than making up for the poor experience by offering discounts on the meal, two separate staff offered us tequila shots...really not what we were interested in and felt a bit unprofessional. If you go here, just be aware that your table and food will possibly be forgotten about 😬

                                          Service was great! The Brussels sprouts and shrimp were tasty and some of the best. Would highly recommend the grilled cheese as well. The drinks are top notch.

Our waiter Slim at Hear Nor There told us we have to get the burger at Nightcap. He was right! Excellent. Also, the blackened shrimp appetizer is a must. We can't wait to come back and try some of the other dishes.

                                          Love this place! Swooned over all our food - take our advice and get the carnitas grilled cheese as one of your table’s appetizers, you’ll be happy (and you may find people get it again as their main dish!) Tons of outdoor seating plus great booths inside. The management and staff are actively adorable and drinks well-mixed. Will definitely return, and often.
