    This restaurant continues to be the very best fine dining experience in Austin! I've been several times and I have never been disappointed, even in the slightest way. The service is absolutely exceptional, the food is amazing in all ways--quality, presentation and taste. And finally, the atmosphere is equally exceptional. Thank you so much for another wonderful experience!

    Our dining experience at Garrison's was phenomenal. Our waitress, Iona, was professional, attentive, and knowledgeable about the menu. She made suggestions and ensured everyone was taken care of and Chef Jakub sent over dishes for us to try and even came to our table to wish our guest of honor a happy Birthday. The atmosphere was fun, festive, yet not too raucous. We loved every dish, especially the Beef TarTar, Truffle Tater Tots, and all the deserts. We high recommend Garrison's for your next night out in downtown Austin!

    Garrison in in The Fairmont, which has a gorgeous lobby & bar area. The ‘food court’ is skip appealing with a large center bar. Then we enter Garrison - atmosphere is upscale yet still cozy. Waitstaff - Jasper - is A+ !! Menu contains many wonderful options. Especially recomnend going for A Special Occasion. You will be very pleased. Deby

    Everyone we encountered from the hostess to the servers were fantastic! The drinks and the food were amazing, don't skip the tater tots. All of the staff was very knowledgeable about the food they were serving. Our waters never ran dry, they were on top of everything. We ate the Parker house rolls, spanish octopus, and tater tots as starters. For the main courses we ate the barbecue grouper, and the 7oz akaushi wagyu they were both amazing. Don't skip the dessert menu the Pecan praline soufflé was worth the wait! We will definitely be back!

    I really wanted to like this place but I was disappointed. We had the grouper, quail, and $35 tater tots. The tater tots were the best part. The grouper had a strong, off-putting smokey flavor and the quail was just underwhelming. The server was very attentive. The vibe was reminiscent of a Vegas hotel restaurant. It’s too bad with so many good restaurants in Austin, I can’t say I’d go back.
