Excellent, personable service and the food is stellar every time! Probably the best burger in all of Austin is found here!
Great friendly service!
Enjoyed my holiday dinner ever so much. The owner and server created a great experience for Turkey Day! I will definitely be going there for happy hour next week! Hope they're planning something for Christmas dinner too.
I did not get a chance to try the food so I can't give a rating for that. The ambiance was nice but other than that, I was very disappointed. This rating is for Thanksgiving only - I hope that their operations run more smoothly for regular dining.
First, we arrived a few minutes early for a 6:30 reservation. It took nearly ten minutes after we arrived for our hostess to finally attend to us. Except we weren't taken to our table - instead, we were led to a lounge area to have drinks. We waited for *half an hour* to be seated, despite having a reservation. I'm sorry, waiting half an hour to be seated at a table when we've made a reservation? Unacceptable.
On top of that, we were greatly misled by Nightcap about what we should expect to eat. The whole reason we had chosen Nightcap is because it looked like a cozy and yummy option for dinner on Thanksgiving that would have non-Thanksgiving food available (I just don't like Thanksgiving food). They advertised on OpenTable that they would have their regular menu in addition to a Thanksgiving menu. They had called me a few weeks prior to ask whether we would prefer the regular menu or the Thanksgiving menu so that they could get a headcount, and they had texted me less than a week before letting me know their Thanksgiving menu had been posted on their site.
When we were finally seated, the only menu available was - surprise - the Thanksgiving menu. When we asked if a regular menu was available, we were told that there must have been "some miscommunication" - clearly, the miscommunication must have been among the Nightcap staff for communicating to OpenTable and to me personally that they would have a regular menu available. Furthermore, as far as I could tell, there was only one waitperson/host, one bartender, and one chef (who was also helping serve food) for all of Thanksgiving night, which contributed to our long wait time. Obviously, Nightcap was wholly unprepared for the evening.
We left and ate elsewhere.
Imagine dining out in Austin in 2000. That would be this place. Dated decor and menu. Food was mediocre and overpriced. Would have been passable for Austin twenty years ago. There are way too many choices in dining now for this place to be a consideration. I’m surprised they are successful enough to stay in business. I predict it won’t be long.
We made a reservation at Nightcap for Thanksgiving dinner. We were seated promptly, and our hostess and server was terrific. We both ordered from the Thanksgiving menu, and were both delighted with our choices. Would absolutely return for regular happy hour or late night snacking, as their cocktail menu looks great!
One of my favorite places to eat and relax. You must try Nightcap!
Always a great experience at Nightcap! Great food, great people. Especially enjoyed the Chicken!
Awesome food and service! Only 5 choices for entrees but they were fantastic. Pork chop was amazing. Highly recommend.
I picked this gem to meet someone for a drink and spot of food. Everything from the ambience to the food was fantastic. The bartendress/server was great! I am looking forward to going back.
Well worth a visit. Limited menu but food is excellent, as are drink options. Will definitely go back the next time we are in Austin!
Love this restaurant. The service is great! Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. I love the ambiance of the restaurant. Will be coming back for sure!
What a great place. Great drinks and food.
Very cute and fun place for drinks and the food was incredible!
The food was inventive, flavorful and frankly delicious. Well done!
Nightcap went above and beyond to make my mom’s birthday special. They even had balloons set up at our table when we arrived! Super impressed with the food and service and I’ll definitely be coming back whenever I’m in Austin.
It was a quiet night due to the UT vs. LSU game going on at the same time. However, Joy did an amazing job making sure we were provided excellent service. It was our first time visiting the restaurant and thought the setting was beautiful. We will be back.
My wife and I recently came in during restaurant week. Though the restaurant wasn't active in the week's program, they still treated us like they were. We appreciated the amazing service. The Brussel Sprouts were particularly good. And we enjoyed the cocktails before our dinner on the East side. We will be back!
My husband and I went to Nightcap on a Tuesday night for a little date night. I started with the BBC (delicious! but not a happy hr special) and he tried 2 different wines. He said the cab on the happy hr menu was terrible but the full-price cab was pretty good. We also started with the pretzel and the Brussels sprouts. The Brussels were pretty good but the pretzel was nothing special. For our meal I had the steak and tomatoes which was good but a little undercooked to my liking. My husband had the burger which he said was good but, again, nothing special.
Our server was great! She was personable and attentive without hovering over us.
We will probably not go again for dinner but maybe for drinks sometime.
We had the whole fish (Branzino). Although it was beautifully prepared and cooked perfectly, the over use of lemon made the sauce too sour. If they had lightened up on the lemon and highlighted the flavor with some more savory herbs it would have been so much better.
Service was professional and helpful. Atmosphere was peaceful and tasteful. They made excellent use of a beautiful old west Austin house.
Pricey but excellent
The attention to detail is felt on the tongue. If you like to fine dine, you have to give Nightcap a try. A small menu done to perfection.
Service and food were great
We went for desserts as they used to be amazing here, it’s been a couple years and things have definitely changed. My husband also ordered a soda and it was never brought out. What we did receive was way over priced. Unfortunate.
The ambiance is great and the service is even better! The menu is limited and the food taste good but it's nothing outbid this world. The fact that the service was so great and the location is cozy I wouldn't mind coming back.
Food was amazing! Service was perfect- Alyssa was our waitress and she was an absolute doll.
Greeted us at the door. Drinks and food came out fast. Pretzel was awesome!!
Great craft cocktails. Bartender extremely knowledgeable and personable. The Branzino fish was the best we’ve ever had.
This was our second visit to the venue and it is very quaint. Highly suggest for late night cocktails vs dinner.
Great as usual!! We've been coming here often, atleast once a week for their happy hour and service, food, and drinks are always outstanding!
From the minute we walked through the door our experience was special! They had set up a table and balloons for my boyfriend’s birthday. A really nice touch! From there the service was incredible. We never waited for anything and didn’t feel overwhelmed. The food came and was tastier than we could’ve imagined. My boyfriend got the grilled fish and called it the best meal he’s had in Austin. I had the chicken which was also excellent and perfectly cooked. The next time you’re in need of a great dining experience in Austin go to Nightcap!
We had a wonderful date night, starting with their house Manhattan but, it was good with the brussel sprouts and accompaniments. Our server, Joy, was very attentive.
We had very poor dinner service (long wait times, entrees served sporadically, significant time gaps without a check-in from server), so I would not recommend Nightcap for dinner. However, the ambiance is excellent and their wine list / bar service was great. I think it would still be a great experience for drinks.
Went for their Happy Hour and it was very delicious. Lots of bites that will fill you up. Their drinks are amazing and they have the perfect outdoor setup. Will be back for more great happy hours!
The food was incredible. My first time to Austin and the first restaurant I visited and it blew my mind. The staff were also all very friendly and Joy was particularly helpful about spots to see in the city. The whole experience was amazing. And I really can’t say enough about the dishes. Appetizer all the way through to dessert; delectable! And they have wifi for out of towners like me :)
The overall experience was very disappointing. The service was polite, professional, but not very fast and both servers seemed disinterested in tending to us. They were responsive when we had requests, just didnt seem friendly or happy about it.
We asked to be seated in a booth, which they accommodated with the caveat that we needed to be finished by a certain time, consequently we were worried about time, but the servers didnt seem to remember that. Also, the menu is very limited.
The upside was the food. I had the roasted chicken, which is a last choice protein for me, but due to the few choices I picked it. It was delicious! My partner had the hamburger and also said it was yummy. The good food made the trip worth it.
Nightcap is a great place for drinks and dinner with friends or just that someone special.
Absolutely love Nightcap! Food is amazing and staff is even better!
Just a fun dinner with my bestie. It’s always amazing food but the delivery time after order is placed is a bit long. Service was great from a customer service perspective, great wait staff! It’s just one of those places you Ofer everything when ordering your initial drink so it comes out in less than a noticeable amount of time. The food is out of this world consistently!!! Delicious!
The atmosphere is great. The service was good although we were rushed out since they booked our table to close to the time that we had booked. The cocktails were really good as were the appetizers. I should have stopped there. We ordered dinner. The main course comes with no sides. My friend had to send her dish back since it smelled and tasted bad. My friend chicken was ALL coating and once I could get tot eh chicken it was slimy and just not tasty. It was expensive and I had to go home and eat. Stick with the drinks and appetizers and go eat somewhere else !
