    Overall our meal was good. The ceviche was certainly the star of the experience. We also order the tuna tataki which we sent back as it was not good. We had the lamb chops which were great and the scallops (without the pork belly) which were also good. For dessert we had two, one was the afrogado which was a disappointment. Too much espresso. It overwhelmed the taste of everything else. The other was some thin cookies with something white between them. They were divine.

    The food was amazing & Christmas decorations were beautiful. Felt like a private dining with less noise. I sat at patio, it’s a romantic. They provided a heater for us. The waiter knows all the details, so we could order good recommended menus. It’s usually my fav restaurant for Thanksgiving buffet in November but it’s also beautiful for Christmas Season in December…. Must order their bread- really good! Recommend for your special events such as Birthdays, Date nights or Anniversaries. They will treat you as a special with special menus!

    CicloResponded on January 11, 2023Hello, So happy to hear you loved the Christmas décor while eating dinner on our romantic patio. Love to hear that your server delivered the Four Seasons caliber of service in all the little details. We look forward to welcoming you back soon for your next birthday, anniversary, or date night!

    We had the most wonderful dinner with friends. The food was fantastic, the cocktails were top notch and as always, we had impeccable service. We always do! We have been coming to this restaurant for years (back when it was Trio) and always love having El as our waiter. He is absolutely phenomenal. Joe, the sommelier always makes sure we are taken care of as well. The whole team there is amazing! My husband had the rack of lamb which was cooked as requested: medium rare, as it should be! The whipped potatoes and Brussels sprouts were a great size for 4 adults to share. Mind you, 4 adults who also had a couple of amazing appetizers as well. We got the house rolls and empanadas. Yummy! The house rolls are served warm with sides of butter and honey. Can’t go wrong with anything you order, it is always cooked to perfection. Others have said this place is overpriced but honestly it is The Four Seasons in downtown Austin, of course it is going to be pricey.

    Normally my wife and I are leery of hotel Resturant food, but Ciclo was the exception. From the unique cocktails to one of the best crudo’ we have had to the Chilean sea bass and the giant prawns the dinner was quite exceptional. Service ( John) was impeccable and a wine list that just didn’t quit a perfect evening all around.

    Food was amazing and beautifully decorated for the holidays! Our server was probably having a bad day. He wasn’t sociable at all. Barely came around and never asked how our food was, etc. It was a Monday night and not very crowded so having multiple tables to attend to would not be an excuse. We had a party of 6 so 20% gratuity was automatically added. I would have tipped more on top but did not.

Festive holiday decor wrapped the hotel and elevated our enjoyment even higher. We look forward to dining at the Four Seasons during Christmas every year and we are never disappointed!

    Very disappointing. My filet was undercooked and flavorless. My wife had the racks of lamb which was also undercooked with very little flavor. Brussels sprouts and roasted cauliflower were somewhat tasty. On some of the dishes, it seemed the chef was going for the unusual and the train just went off the tracks. Even the two bottles of wine, Cakebread and Jordan, couldn’t save the meal. Many fine places to eat in Austin, I would recommend trying one of the others.

    CicloResponded on December 20, 2022Hello Darin, Thank you for taking the time to share feedback about your dinner.

    We had an amazing dinner at Ciclo! Our waiter Denis was so friendly, kind, and attentive. He went out of his way multiple times to make sure we had everything we needed and to make our dinner extra special. We ordered the corn empanadas and house bread as appetizers and both were delicious. For our later courses we ordered the chicken, beet salad, butternut squash soup. The food presentation and taste were superb for them all. I highly recommend Ciclo for dinner and if you go you must ask for Denis to make your night truly special!

    Dined with four friends. Great table! Service was VERY slow…Took 30 minutes to get the first drink. Just get people a drink and they’ll relax a little. Took a while to get the orders in. There were several times we were all looking around for the waiter to come back… no one else seemed to inquire with us, other than the one guy who told us our waiter is working very hard. Food was excellent. Wine bottle prices a little steep compared to other finer dining establishments. Disappointed with overall service level.

    We usually love dining at Ciclo. We are happy to pay extra for next level service, tasty food, and a great ambience. This was my husbands first time dining there, so we were hoping it would make a good impression. We sat down and were not greeted or acknowledged for almost 15 minutes. Our cocktails came out one at a time, over the course of the following 20 minutes. Upon getting our food, which was mostly delicious, our server had not checked on us or refilled our drinks. Other servers came by with a water pitcher in hand to top up our waters, but that was the most attentive anyone had been. When asking for a side of lemons (plural) for one of the guests iced tea, the server said no problem. After waiting 5 minutes, my friend went to the seafood table and grabbed some lemons that were meant for the shrimp cocktail. The server came by finally and slammed a bowl down next to her that only had one lemon wedge and said nothing and walked away. She slammed the bowl down so hard we were all quite alarmed and had to inspect the bowl to make sure it didn’t break. Needless to say, our experience was terrible, and not on par for a Four Seasons dining experience. We are disappointed. I’m not sure if they were understaffed that day, or our server was inexperienced, but the service was horrible. I want to mention that we are very pleasant, kind, and patient people. Normally we don’t complain or paint businesses in a bad light, but I feel like this needs to be seen by the restaurant so they can make some improvements.
