Porterhouse steak had great flavor but was cooked medium instead of requested medium rare. Good service.

ALC is our go-to restaurant for special occasions and has been for many years. We especially love the beer-battered mushrooms appetizer and the perfectly seasoned steaks. The atmosphere is the perfect balance of elegance and Austin-casual. We never fail to enjoy our visits to this Austin gem.

The best steak I've ever had! Really enjoyed the gorgonzola butter and the bernaise sauce. Everything was fabulous. To accompany my filet mignon, I had the matchstick fries and caesar salad. To drink, I tried the Gin & Jam. Delicious!

Prices are too high for this experience.
Ambiance is "ok", waiter was very good but the steak was "meh"
$20 extra for Oscar Style?
See what I mean?

Son’s birthday and this definitely made him feel special. Diego was amazing server and was very polished and attentive. Food was amazing and no one left stating anything other than how amazing the food was.
This is the best Steak in Austin! Their pork chops and seafood is amazing as well.

We had the 22oz bone in Ribeye Oscar style- mouthwatering and just absolutely amazing.
Porterhouse which was so good that it was cleaned to the bone.
Pork chops that were amazing my mom was a quiet as a mouse as she was loving her pork chops.
Sides are amazing as well. You will not be disappointed!

Food was fine, service was fast and efficient. So loud we could hardly hear each other talk. Surprising number of little kids, several running around.

Not a bad evening, but not worth the price, even to support a local business. :-(

Wonderful food excellent service, the bartender made the perfect Manhattan, the only other thing was there were some very loud people in the main room but I also understand low ceiling causes sound to carry. All in all an excellent experience from a couple that drove all the way in from near Johnson City.

Meal portions were just right. Good service and we appreciated the social distancing. That was helped by the timing of our reservation. We were able to beat the 7:00 crowd.

Another great meal. One of our filets was a little thicker than the others and thus much more rare in the middle. I like medium rare but it was purple. I never like to send things back but our server took care of it so kindly and apologetically. No fuss. Very professional.
