Everything was outstanding as far and food and drinks- but i think it would be a bit better ambiance if it weren't so dark. just a tad lighter so we can see each other and what we are eating.... I would like to recommend to my theatre group but I know they won't go because of the dark setting.

Food was good but way over salted (our party of 8 universally agreed). Waiter was good, knowledgeable but touchy- really weird he touched most of our shoulders throughout the course of the meal.

Food was top end. Similar to other top chop houses. Asked for bone in filet to be cooked "Pittsburgh" style, medium rare but was cooked medium to med-well. Also weak in types of sauces for steaks, Emeralds chop House always has some wonderful home made dipping sauces. Steak was delicious, just over cooked.
Sides, bread and service we're outstanding.

Food was wonderful and staff (host & server) were absolutely perfect. We forgot to ask for a booth and the hostess let us sit at a table (did not relegate us to the bar) while waiting 5 min for a booth. Very kind. Also the server (I think it was Robert) was a professional server - knowledgeable and non-intrusive, but also very helpful. Our desserts got a little mixed up, but they quickly made it right without me asking. Love this place and only wish we lived closer. (Steak was perfect too!)

My wife and I both ordered the filet and asked for it to be medium. My wife's was way overcooked, to the point where it was well done. Mine was overcooked also, although not as much. The huge carrot they served it with, on the other hand, was very undercooked and not edible. I almost expect chain steak places to overcook my steak, but for the prices these people are charging, it should've been perfect. My wife didn't send it back because we'd been walking around all day and were starving, so she didn't feel like waiting. The manager took care of our wine for us, one saving grace. However, I'd have much rather paid for the wine and gotten a better steak. Atmosphere was very dark inside.

I have been to Bob’s 3 times in the last year. The first two were 4.5-5 star experiences, and we loved those visits. But my last trip on 5/18, my anniversary was only 3 star. My tomahawk ribeye was fully 1/4 fat and that part was totally inedible (for an $89 steak). My waiter was obviously in a hurry to flip our table and rushed us through every course.

Great food and service. The only drawback, in my opinion, was the speed of when the food came out. It was too long between courses. We spent close to 3 hours there with no dessert. Nice place for business dinner or celebrating a special occasion. Definitely an old school steakhouse.

We had to wait a little while for our table to open up, because I had requested a certain server. Once we enjoyed drinks at the fabulous bar, compliments of the great bar staff there, we received excellent service from Sergio. He was great, and so was the manager that made everything happen.

We had a great server who was prompt and great at explaining the specials and any questions about the menu. Every time we’ve been to Bobs the food has been exceptionally and consistently prepared. We even received a small complimentary bottle of champagne for dining. We both think the filets here are the best Austin has to offer. Super satisfied all around.

The service was spectacular and the steak was divine! However we ordered pork chops and they were nowhere near to Bobs standards. We ordered them medium and they were pink and raw in the middle and we took them home to cook again the next say (See picture)

Absolutely phenomenal night and the quality of service and food were unsurpassed. A bit too dark in the dining room, but that was minor compared to an excellent event and time. Ask for Ishmael to be your server!!!!

It’s a steak house. I had heard good things about so we tried it. The server was very loud, overly talkative and forgot to put in one of our guests appetizer. He apologized after I reminded him of it as he was delivering the meal. I had a 9oz filet that was cooked perfectly but the cut of meat was poor quality with tough fatty parts. Will not be going back. Fleming’s does a superior job 100% of the time.

Just like a steakhouse should be and more! Enjoyed cocktails and appetizers while relaxing on the lovely rooftop patio bar. We were seated in a lovely, more intimate dining area for dinner with a great server and staff. Steak was amazing. Cream corn cream brûlée was a a must-try but the star of the show-THAT BREAD!! Be careful because you could accidentally fill-up on that heavenly loaf. The wine selection was nice. Attentive staff. Delicious and decadent carrot cake. It was a perfect way to celebrate our 20th anniversary!!

Started off the evening with the rooftop lounge before our reserved table time. Then down stairs for dinner. Sampson was our waiter. Shrimp mix was a great start. I had a New York Strip, served Oscar style with extra peppercorn crust. This was a suggestion of Sampson...was he ever right. Waiter explained how the kitchen scheduled worked, and how steaks made it out to us just when we were ready. Our anniversary. We received a complimentary slice of 4 layer cake. It was huge. Had to get the cake to go. No way we could finish an appetizer, dinner and cake.

I ordered the salmon and it was WAY overcooked to the point I couldn't eat it. I didn't say anything though. The ambiance was good and our waiter was very attentive. I was just super disappointed in the food. This is the first bad experience I've ever had at Bob's. It was a Tuesday night as well, so it wasn't super busy.
