Cannon+Belle Ratings and Reviews
My second visit to Cannon + Belle was just as good as the first. I was pleased to have the same server, Brittany, who took good care of me last time. I had a 9 oz pour of the driest Rose, which was lovely for a hot, summer day. I couldn't resist ordering the honey (local) butter and bread as an appetizer. I tried the roasted chicken with broccolini and red farro this time. It was amazing. The chicken was juicy and tender. And the farro was cooked perfectly - almost popping in my mouth. The only time I usually have farro is when I cook it for myself as so many places overcook it. I got the bourbon and bacon bread pudding to go and took it back to the hotel for me. They forgot my ice cream to go on top, but it was still pretty tasty as a midnight snack. I think I'll start coming here on every visit to Austin!
I stayed at the HILTON DOWNTOWN AUSTIN this past weekend and ate at this restaurant twice. The first time was good. The second time was awful. As a matter of fact, if my second visit would have been my first, there would never have been a 2nd visit. Three issues: 1. I ordered the rosemary focaccia appetizer (even their bread is a la carte). It appeared to be three slabs of bread with the top and bottom sliced off and toasted. The pieces of bread that were brought to the table with uneven trimmings that looked like the chef cut off parts that were burned. Upon closer examination, it was obvious that they attempted to hide the charcoal colored black side of the bread by placing the burned side down on the wood serving tray. All pieces of bread looked like black burnt toast on one side. I don't understand why they would think it acceptable serving an inedible dish. Lack of pride in what they served perhaps? I don't believe this was a mistake as it was obvious that one of the 3 pieces was trimmed on the topside to be more presentable while the bottom side was like the stuff you scrape off a grill. 2. I ordered the margherita pizza.In addition to the pool of grease in the center of the pizza, it had a strong taste of LEMON. After one bite, I was done. When the waitress came to the table at the end of the meal, I shared the burnt bread and lemon pizza issue. The kind manager came to my table indicating that she "understood that there were challenges". The manager indicated that the kitchen may not have cleaned a utensil (shredder?) between a lemon dish and my pizza. She offered me another meal but by that time, it was late, and the other person in my party was finished eating. The manager then asked if she could get me a dessert. I inquired about the desserts and an item that was not on the menu ... I was informed the additional item could be ordered. 3. Sometime later, the server came to the table and took our dessert order. We ended up being charged for desert
This was our first visit to cannon+belle for a date night out. We ordered the chefs board for appetizer. It was very good..but I would recommend adding a cheese selection to the board. I ordered a tequila version of a Moscow mule..it was delicious...and added smoke when opening the beverage. My husband ordered the red snapper and I ordered the shrimp and grits. The red snapper was very lite and somewhat bland. But it was cooked perfectly. My shrimp and grits were delicious until I reached the last shrimp...it was raw and I had eaten half of it. I freaked out. I don't eat raw fish,shellfish,oysters, or meat. They did give us a free dessert due to the situation. We ordered the bacon infused bread pudding with vanilla ice cream. It was delicious. But it didn't cover up the fact that I was served and ate raw shrimp. My shrimp meal wasn't comped. Our waiter was awesome though.
The menu looked great, and photos looked great. In person, it was different. Some of this is our fault for not doing more research. This restaurant is in the Hilton, and adjacent to the lobby, which was pretty loud when we were there. Our server was very friendly, and was clear on her recommendations, when we asked, which we liked. She ordered a special cocktail and I ordered a local beer. Both were excellent. We ordered a Brie appetizer, which was downright bad, but we were so hungry we ate it. It was really some sort of gravy, and the bread crisps provided were very stale. We would have otherwise sent it back. Then our server disappeared, for 30 minutes! No one stopped by to find out what happened. Does it really take a half an hour to cook a hamburger? We flagged down the other server, whom we told to forget the rest of the order and bring the bill, but the burger arrived just then. The burger was quite good. Our server eventually showed up and told us that she told the other server to run with our order. He disagreed. Clearly a communication snafu. This happens, we understand, but the server never told US that she was taking a break. However, no one, not the bartender, the other server or the manager noticed that we were just sitting there for 30 minutes. The manager did comp our burger, which was quite nice of her. If we were to go back, we'd sit at the bar, and order the burger.
Was not impressed. My girlfriends and I have brunch every Sunday and decided to try this out. They had a reservation available on Mother's Day which was great. It was downhill from there.
They had a band playing which was far too loud. No one told us it was a buffet, wish they would've mentioned this in my reservation confirmation or at the hostess stand.
Our waiter didn't mention it was buffet until we were waiting awhile for menus and asked, can we see a menu. Then he didn't inform us that it was $42/ person or that it was inclusive of mimosas (we didn't order any). He also never cleared our plates, so our dirties were stacked at the end of the table until one of us got up to find someone to take them away. We had to go get him to refill our coffee and order more drinks.
Most importantly, the food was average at best. And I'm not even sure what exactly everything was because there weren't any signs on anything. Needless to say, not going back. Terrible.
We had reservations, but for some reason they seated us in the hotel lobby at a picnic table, not in the restaurant. The buffet style medal was dissappointing and EXTREMELY overpriced. We had hotel guests standing next to our table, children running around and playing, and families posing for pictures. It was far from enjoyable.
We've eaten at Cannon + Belle many times and have always really enjoyed it. The regular buffet at $22 is a great value and the food is amazing. On Mother's Day we attended a "special" brunch, and frankly I prefer the regular. We also attended on Easter and while that special brunch was worth the increase in price, I found the Mother's Day brunch to be lacking. On a normal weekend, we love it. The food is fantastic and I think a reasonable value. I'm not sure if we'll be back on a special occasion weekend.
My wife and I went here tonight and the place had a cool vibe... we are very early (6:15 reservation) and then when we finished, headed over to the lounge area just in time to watch the singer put her guitar away. Music was great. Next time we will done later and enjoy the live music. Neat spot worth dining at. Try the pastrami braised short rib with sauerkraut! So good.
The service was wonderful, the food was so-so. Two in our group ordered the Marinated Texas Wagyu Ribeye. Not worth the $39 charge. They ordered their steaks Medium, both were dry and a little tough. Two of us ordered the Shrimp and Grits. Overall the taste was good, but we were not expecting a grits patty. The Pork Shank got two thumbs up from our party.
The food was fantastic. The hostess was very helpful. The bar service was on point. The server at our table not so much. We waited 10 minutes at least for him to greet us. We had to ask multiple times for water. He never brought us coffee and came over to bus the table once.
Went there on a lark when other restaurants were too busy to accept our reservation request. Not expecting a hotel restaurant to deliver a great experience, the menu was surprisingly simple and filled with an assortment of surprises. We tried a little of everything and shared it all. There were nothing but pleasant reviews for the presentation, flavor and culinary art. It was a birthday treat that allowed us to completely enjoy our evening out.
Absolutely fantastic! Four of us went for a night out. Appetizers great for sharing - Brie fondue & pretzels with three spreads (both delicious and well done). We also had the shrimp tamale, but as they recommended it was not ideal for sharing. Very tasty though.
Main courses were delicious. We had the venison (cooked perfectly), pastrami beef rib (so tender), shrimp & grits (great flavor) and seed crusted snapper (well seasoned). Each dish had perfect balancing components on the plate.
My only complaint of the night would be the bathroom location is a decent ways away in the lobbby. They did such an amazing job decorating and building the ambiance in the restaurant, which is amazing by the way, it was a bummer to leave the "haven" to walk through a lobby.
We also had excellent service and tasty cocktails.
We decided to go to Cannon and Belle to celebrate Valentine's Day. Instead of dealing with big crowds, we had dinner the day before and the experience was amazing.
We started off at the bar to grab some cocktails. If you like bourbon, you have to try the pecan pie cocktail. They actually use a mini smoker machine to give it a smoky finish.
We eventually sat down and was greeted by Miguel--the most badass server ever. He proactively took care of everything we would ever want and even told us about some history of Austin and how they came up with the name of the restaurant.
The food was perfect on every level. The presentation/creativity/unique flavors made the experience like no other restaurants we've been to. Let's just say, the food was so good we even took the bread home with us.
Chef Peter and all the Cannon+Belle staff were super friendly and we can't wait to go back!
Great atmosphere. I had an informal baby shower there, and the staff was superb. Very friendly and patient, and they went above and beyond to make my day special. My only note is that one of the sauces on my burger was really salty. Everything else was delicious.
Food and ambience was lovely. The decor and the style of restaurant has a unique touch. The appetizers were by our favorite part of the evening, especially the pretzels with the bacon peanut butter. The only unfortunate thing was that our appetizers arrived after our main meal and some of our main meals arrived cold. However it was rectified quickly and we had a wonderful evening.
