    We were seated at 6:45 and they had us out the door in under an hour. It was exceptionally rushed for such a nice restaurant. We expected to be able to sit and talk and enjoy our meal. Our server encouraged us to order everything all at once and she would course it appropriately. Our salad came before we finished the app and then the steaks arrived as they were taking our salad away. We were never even asked if we wanted a second drink. It was very clear they just wanted us to finish as quickly as possible. We couldn't even think about dessert after being served 3 courses in 45 minutes. Overall, the experience was highly disappointing. I will not go back.

    Disappointing visit this year for V-Day with the kids. We were there early and seemed everyone was in the weeds from the beginning while the restaurant was not full. Constantly had dirty plates, no refills, forgot wine (had to go to the bar to order that was 'backed up' yet all 3 bartenders were easily accessible and available - more like forgot to put in order). Not end of the world, but was extremely disappointing for 1K dinner and special night for the kids.

    Was disappointed in the food. Steak was average (Filet Mignon 9 oz.). Caesar Salad was very good as was the carrot and potatoes that accompanied the steak. The sautéed mushrooms were not very good at all. Service was very good. Large group in our room was noisy. Valet parking was terrible. It took 20-25 minutes for thenm to bring me my car.

    Steaks and sides were delicious. Service was outstanding. Unfortunately we were seated across the room from a group of 10 - who had a few diners over served! Couldn’t even hear the conversation at our table due to the loud mouthed people across the room.

    Disappointed. The steak was fantastic and that’s it. We planned a 50th bday dinner and the experience was disappointing. The restaurant was cold inside. Even the valet guys had a heater. The appetizers/salad and service were subpar. Our meal came out after 2 other tables got served with no explanation. It was expensive. This restaurant does not meet up with other Austin upscale steakhouse’s. Great place for a Thursday evening to watch a game and eat great steak, not a special occasion restaurant.

    I’m a long-time Bob’s fan - spending pretty much all “special occasion dinners” with them. We cut our NYE dinner short after the manager was rude and condescending while asking us to “keep it down” or it would be our “last dining experience at Bob’s.” Our server assured us he didn’t a problem with our volume nor had he received any complaints. Even IF our party of 6 was being “too rowdy” on NYE [eye roll] - there was a much better way to deescalate that situation. Our server did his best too smooth over the situation but our friends were so disgusted, we closed our bill, apologized to our server and left before salads had even come out.

    Terrible experience. For the price point and to feel like I dined at Longhorn steak house was surprising! I can’t even blame it on NYE … it wasn’t busy! Food was cold, drinks were eh. Old Fashioned was $30.00 and there was nothing special about it, white wine wasn’t chilled. The lobster Mac and cheese minus the lobster. All of this could be overlooked, but it’s the lack of hospitality! This place isn’t cheap and you expect a dining experience. It was our anniversary and they did nothing! We booked the reservation and mentioned this was a special occasion and that we were celebrating our anniversary and not one single word about it! Even when we mentioned it. We did ask to speak to a manager about our food being served ice cold and he seemed more annoyed than anything. Even asked what we would like him to do. You tell me since you’re the manager! There are other places I’ll stick to for special occasions… Trulucks, Perry’s to name a few!

    Honestly, didn’t have the best experience. My sister and I went to celebrate New Year’s Eve with a great dinner. Felt like we got pushed in the back room, with large set tables 5+, and we were the only two count table. So the service at the beginning was awful and didn’t get our drink order until about 10 -15 of sitting there with just water . Ididn’t feel like we had enough attention on us due to the high top tables in the room. Plus, it was so loud I could even hear my own sister speak to me. Honestly, I was not satisfied. I’m not sure why we got put in a room full of party tables. Don’t think I’ll be coming back.

    First time at the Austin Bobs, it’s my favorite steakhouse. I’ve been dining there since my first experience years ago at the original one in Dallas years ago. Steaks are unbelievable. Tee off with a classic shrimp cocktail and mixed greens salad with their fresh out of the oven bread, you’re golden! One thing that also sets Bobs apart from other fine dining steakhouses is your delectable meat comes with a choice of potato and their legendary glazed carrot as opposed to an a La carte starch and veggie. Do miss those table side pickles though! Love ya Bobs!

    This was our fourth time here for Christmas Eve. The first three times were wonderful, and we enjoyed a fabulous meal. Our experience this time, was terrible. Our family of six were sat in the back of the restaurant in the "overflow" room, along with stacks of chairs against the wall. The ambiance was unpleasant and didn’t feel like it was part of the restaurant. Service: We had two different servers, one who got our drinks/appetizers, then we were told we were getting a new server. And that’s when things went downhill. He was polite at first, then turned pushy, ignorant, and agitated. He was adamant on upselling our steaks and extras (lobster) and made us feel pressured. This resulted in $300+ in additional costs. Food: Appetizers were great! Calamari and bacon wrapped shrimp were delicious. We all ordered steak (and a lot of extras as mentioned above) and not one of us enjoyed it. They were over cooked, chewy and no flavor. My husband’s ribeye had 50% fat. When our server came to check on us, he could see my husband’s steak half eaten but said nothing and disregarded our comments. Our two kids (10 & 12) had a small steak that was good, but they didn’t like the sides (sweet potato, mac & cheese) and were charged extra for them (our server said it came with one side each). My oldest son (20) ordered the Kansas City Strip and it was hard as a rock. He said it was very chewy. I had the Prime Filet, which was good but not great. I added the Oscar style but with Lobster, which I was persuaded to order (2 oz portion curled up on top) with hardly any bearnaise sauce. I requested more sauce a few times, but it never came (but was charged for it). Price: Our family of 6 (2 drinks, 2 appetizers, 6 entrees) was just over $800. This is a lot of money for our family (a lot!) as we only go out to eat like this once a year, and we were regrettably disappointed. Because of our recent experience with fair service/food, we will not be dining at Bobs steakhouse in the future.

    - Requested accommodations that were requested and acknowledged, and confirmed were not met. It was explained to the person who answered the phone a few days earlier that this is my daughter’s first Xmas without her father, who had recently passed so if she could be treated with an excellent experience, it would help cheer her up. Server was rude, and seemed unfamiliar with what a fine dining experience should be.

    We ordered rare steaks but what we were given was “blue” - cool and raw on the inside. The filet was still very good, a beautiful piece of meat and very tender. But the ribeye was nearly inedible: chewy and tough. Everything else was fine, but not great. For the price, there are likely better steak houses in downtown Austin. Service was friendly and attentive for a busy Friday night.

    Asked for a better table when making the reservation and was seated right by the door in a very tight configuration. Waiter and manager just seemed annoyed that they worked there as they were not friendly whatsoever. Much better places to get a great meal (Perry’s, Eddie Vs etc) that also has great service.

    Big fan of Bob’s and have been going here for years. Unfortunately last night was one of the more “reoccurring” nights when the staff just appeared less than happy to be there and as if the customers were an annoyance. From the bar for drinks before dinner, to the table staff…rushed and a feeling of frustration.

    Been to Bobs multiple times and typically it fabulous. This time unfortunately the food was subpar. The appetizers of lamp lollipops were extremely salty. Even couple steaks had to be sent back because was not cooked properly and overall the steak was salty as well. The crab cake although very small for the price was delicious. Also the the wait staff was kept peeping in on us trying to pressure us to leave. Unfortunately we were celebrating a birthday so was hoping for a better experience. Hope the management takes this as constructive criticism because typically we have had great time at Bobs

    Good food, generous wine list, Friday night so the noise level was really loud. We paid around $80 per person for steak and drinks, so it was a little pricey. Thank you
