OpenTable Diner (Austin)
3.0  Dined 5 days ago

ALC is one of my favorite restaurants--but not Sunday night. I will never go on Prime Rib night ever again. There seemed to be a different vibe, and not a good one. Also, even though I made my reservations long in advance, and indicated it was a special occasion, we were stuck in the back of the restaurant in a very small table where the atmosphere was terrible. The waiter was not very attentive. He was very slow. He also mistook my order of a nice bottle of wine for a glass of wine instead. I told him to forget the bottle, and bring another glass for my friend. It took 10 minutes him to get his glass of wine. The Oyster Texefeller appetizer was so salty it was almost impossible to eat. The prime rib was below the quality I would expect of a restaurant like Austin Land & Cattle, which is typically known for it beautiful cuts of meat. We were not even asked if we wanted to order any of your wonderful special sauces. It has been a little while since I had been to ALC for dinner. So I hope this was not an indication of the quality going downhill. Hopefully it was just an off night But I was really not impressed at all.

Really enjoyed the ambiance especially as this was our anniversary. Great service, noise level was more than acceptable. Parking could be a challenge

Always a great meal, bone-in ribeye never disappoints. Worst part of the experience is always finding parking in the very limited space available. Otherwise the food and service is always great.

We went for our Valentines Day dinner. Had the New York Strip by 44 Farms. BEST STEAK I HAVE EVER HAD! Sides were also good. Will be coming back for sure.

ALC Steaks is a great mix of local and upscale quality food and service. I had a filet mignon that was comparable to Vic and Anthonys or a Ruths Chris in a more welcoming setting. A classy, relaxed atmosphere that was cozy and intimate. The sides were also outstanding! Plenty of wines to choose from but what I would consider a limited wine menu. My wife wanted to go back the very next day :)

It was my wife's birthday on February 14. We dined on February 13. Food and service were great. She had the filet (which she shared with me) and I had the pork chops. All food items were cooked to order and delicious. Nice spot for a special meal. They also have an excellent happy hour.
