The hosts were courteous and timely and service was good, however the food was very expensive for what it was, $59 for a steak of the quality that was served, it was overpriced plus the sides were extra. Drinks were also expensive

Lovely place, extremely attentive staff, good food. Live entertainment was a pleasant surprise - Frank Sinatra classics, a real treat for Moms birthday. If youre in your 20s, maybe not your thjng.

There is a pleasant sidewalk with tables under an awning, but very few people were inside - even on Saturday night. If you are in the neighborhood, give it a try!! Nice for families too!

I hesitate to speak poorly of a restaurant in the days of Covid but I really wish I hadn’t left $500 at this place tonight. I wanted every step into Bashaw’s to be riddled with excellence but in reality this was one of the worst dining experiences I’ve ever had. For starters we entered the building at 5:30 and no one was to be found for several minutes, if not five. Moving past the awkwardness once several very friendly guys surfaced from a back room we sat at our table and was greeted by a super sweet server. She took excellent care of our party of 6. And I tipped her well. It’s not her fault the following meal was lackluster. It wasn’t that the food was bad, it was that the food wasn’t good. The steaks came out lukewarm, which was surprising since the menu spoke of them being prepared under an 1800 degree oven. They were $30 steaks at best; but, in true Austin fashion ended up costing $60 instead. I have no problem paying $60 for a steak. I do not enjoy paying it for a $30 one. The sides were too cheesy to even call them vegetables. And I like cheese. A lot. I know restaurants are struggling so I feel like a Scrooge even speaking up but I also feel vehemently that I was conned out of $500 for food that was not tasty. I wish I had seen this review before I headed their way. Let’s put it this way, our dining experience at Bashaw’s was a twofer…first and last visit at the same time.

The entertainer Friday night was VERY LOUD and hokey. The first time we went was a smooth jazz trio. Will have to call in advance to see what the entertainment will be. Music was way to loud for the space.

The food was awful, from ingredients, cooking, seasoning to presentation. We couldn't even get through half the portion they provided because of how bad the food tasted, and the portion was already small to begin with. The price is through the roof and the menu was less creative than Red Lobster. The ambient feels like a tacky boomer's imagination of classiness and luxury. I'd rather spend money on taco trucks.

Food was good but on the expensive side. Chairs were on rollers which made seating a little challenging. Ambiance not as plush as the prices would tend to indicate.

Terrific food, drinks and service - as always. REALLY enjoyed the live music. Our friend was wildly impressed with everything but most especially that we have this amazing gem of a venue in our neighborhood. Will be my birthday dinner location for sure! My goal is to try everything on the menu. This time tried the wedge salad with balsamic glaze. Delicious! And our steaks were perfection as was our family sized side corn dish. Even the bread and special butter was so wonderful - we had an additional serving!

My group went on a Friday evening when live music was playing. The artist was a guitar and a fiddle. They were first class and played a variety of music we could sing along. The food was so fresh and cooked to perfection. Buba the owner made us feel like a part of the family. Towards the end of our dining experience he sang with his great voice and invite the audience to participate. After 3 of the no holds rich drinks I went and played the piano and sang!!! We will be going back again. This is the place for the perfect date or to take the family out for great fellowship.

This was the first time I have been at Bashaw's and I was a bit disappointed. The French Onion soup was delicious and perhaps the highlight of the evening. I originally ordered the Chicken Cordon Bleu but was told by our server, Thomas. it was not available. My second choice, the "hand-cut pork tenderloin was more of a cut of a pork steak.

Our first visit to this restaurant and the food and service were excellent.....I can't say much about the"drinkers" at the bar....sort of took away from the experience...I know this was a Saturday night however seeing "them" taking drinks to their truck and back in seemed more like a "hang-out" rather than the "expensive" restaurant that it is....Can't say enough about the talent....very entertaining!!! Yes will go back next time we are in Austin.

As with every visit, last night at Bashaw's was terrific. Exceptional food, drinks and service. Bashaw's is a gem of a dining venue complete with live music in an elegant, friendly atmosphere. We don't miss a chance to take visiting friends and family there. Bashaw's always impresses. Our next visit will be for the Tuesday chicken fried steak night with a country music artist. Live music artists are always excellent and the volume is tastefully set to not overpower conversation. Go and support this locally owned treasure!

Confusing. The website calls it fine dining but staff are dressed in flannel and denim and the volume of the music was very high, unlike a fine dining room. Napkins appeared clean and pressed but smelled terrible. Black specks in the fresh water. Dirty water glasses. Drinks ($14-16) were strong but took a half hour to arrive. Appetizers, soups, salads ($15 and up) were OK. Dinner plates were served a full 1 hour and 50 minutes past our arrival time. We had a table of 7 which can definitely slow things down, but the restaurant was not even 25% full. Steaks ($39-59) were prepared wet (sous vide) and then seared which would be OK except they were not seasoned during sous vide part of the preparation. One in our party ordered the pork loin and received a chop. Fried shrimp and fries were OK. The majority of our food went back uneaten. Oscar style add-ons used unseasoned canned crab. Bernaise sauce was tasty but couldn't save the under seasoned steak and crab. We had to ask a number of times for the volume of the music to be turned down in order to even hear our server. We had to step outside to talk to the table mates who were across the table or more than 1 seat away. The positives: service was thoughtful and kind. It was their kindness that kept us from sending 5 out of 7 plates back. Price with tax and 20% tip for 2 adults each ordering an appetizer, a $39 a la carte steak entree, a $19 add on, and 2 drinks: $312. This was the most expensive meal we've eaten in our 6 years here in Austin, and we'll definitely remember it, but not for the reasons we'd like.

Mary, I am sorry that you did not enjoy the casual dress on Country Western night, the food, the seasoning, the fresh crab, the pork tenderloin the music. Thank you for the compliment on our service. Prime meant and seafood is not cheap! For a more formal night, come see us Wed - Saturday. We only offer the highest quality steak and seafood while other restaurant substitute the highest quality for heavy seasoning - which is something we just do not offer. We appreciate you stopping by!

We really enjoyed the music--Ken Kruse singing Sinatra. He's great and made our evening fun. The restaurant wants to be a fine dining spot, but it just misses. The decor is not very elegant but could be upgraded with a little effort. The cocktails were good but overpriced a bit. The food was average and also overpriced. My salmon was dry; my husband's pork tender was smothered with sauce. The bread came out cold, with honey butter, while we would have preferred regular softened butter. There was no wine by the glass priced below $15. Our waiter Cohen was excellent, and, like I said, we had a nice evening, but the restaurant is not what I was hoping for. The owner should visit Table 13 in Dallas. They have accomplished the same concept but it's done very well. I'll probably go to Reale's to hear Ken sing.

Food great. Service was good as they were short staffed, so we had 3 servers over the course of our meal. Each server was professional and attentive. We were seated near the stage and the music was very loud. It was difficult to hear table conversation without shouting. The musicians were FANTASTIC. We will definitely be back, but will ask to be seated farther from the stage or outside.
