We were pleasantly surprised with everything! We didn't know the restaurant was inside the Fairmont hotel. We LOVED the Fairmont and LOVED Garrison! The food, the ambiance, the wine, everything was amazing! We especially appreciated our waiter George! He was so knowledgeable with everything form suggesting a wine to what plates we would really like! Thank you for an awesome evening! It was a perfect way to celebrate Fathers day for my husband!
PS. I've already sung your praises to everyone I know! Thats how much we all loved it!
Over the top service and fabulous food
Best redfish ever!
Great meal and service.
The restaurant atmosphere is perfect for sharing Stories and connecting. The chef is absolutely brilliant. Everything was top notch.
One of the best overall food experiences ever! The food and service were both amazing.
Everything was very tasty -- the avocado starter, and sourdough were amazing.
One of the top culinary experiences I’ve had and I’ve been to Micheline Star restaurants and other top restaurants around the world and the food and service here easily compares. Outstanding experience.
Very attentive, excellent service and great food
We couldn't have had a better experience and, our server, George was AMAZING!!
Incredible experience start to finish - thoughtful custom decorated dessert brought out to celebrate my friend’s 40th. Food was sublime!
The service was fantastic, and we really enjoyed the creative dishes. Sat at the counter so we got to watch the chefs and talk with them, which was fun. Had the pork chop and sirloin, along with the charred broccolini, which my husband said was the best he’d ever had. Ended our meal with the coffee dessert and rubharb dessert. WOW! We were scrapping our plates because we didn’t want to miss one morsel. We’ll definitely be back. The only downside is that you have to walk through the other hotel restaurants to get to Garrison, so it feels a bit like you’re in a Vegas hotel or resort rather than heading to a unique experience.
We were willing to share menu items so we each were able to try more dishes. Our server was very helpful in assisting us to put together a good blend of flavors, tastes and cuisines.
Excellent food. Very unique expensive and well worth it
Excellent, ambitious, creative food! One of my all time favorite restaurants.
Really nice for a change. Different flavors
We took my daughter here for her 31st birthday dinner. She's a vegetarian, so we requested a totally vegetarian meal so we could share everything. Our waiter was very accommodating and explained to us how the chef could modify several of the dishes and make vegetarian versions. We ended up sharing 3 appetizers (the riccotta, charred avocado, and artichoke hearts) and 3 veggie dishes (glazed carrots, charred broccolini, and the tater tots), and we loved them all! Our favorites were the glazed carrots, riccotta, & tater tots, but I would order them all again! I have never had such deliciously prepared vegetables. We decided to forgo an entry since we were pretty full and wanted to try a couple desserts. We settled on the chocolate souffle and bourbon ice cream-- both incredible! Service was excellent as well.
This is my new favorite restaurant!
Great time in every way! Can’t wait to go back.
Wonderful service. Value for the $$$ is the central question.
Enrique was fabulous!
The best meal I’ve had in Austin . Service is superior!
Every course was AMAZING! Chef Andre Natera was wonderful and his crew took great care of us.
My husband just loved the interior. It was modern with high ceilings. I had fresh fish, and it was delicious but saltier than I would have liked. My husband thought his entree, the salmon, was perfect. The wine was good, but my appetizer was slow to arrive, so I really could not drink the wine with my appetizer as I would have preferred.
The service and food were impeccable. It was quiet enough that we could all talk to each other, but not awkwardly quiet. The wait staff was attentive, but not overbearing or pushy. We had appetizers, entrees and dessert. The whole group loved every dish, which is rare!
Thank you for your kind words Matthew, we hope to have you back in soon! Greg Voge General Manager - Garrison
Had an amazing time at Garrison. Service was amazing, and our captain was very helpful and attentive. When we notified them that myself and my pregnant wife were vegetarian, they made us both special entrees and were more than accommodating to our diet. Wine list is inventive and features wines from all over the world covering many different varietals. Chef and his team were extremely talented. Pastry chef was also exceptional. Restaruant GM was well versed in hospitality and was quick to anticipate our every need before we even had to ask. Highly recommend to anyone for just a night out with a loved one. Great food. Great wine. Great service. Hats off to the entire staff.
Good Evening Michael, I really appreciate the detailed review, and happy to hear we were able to make it a great night for you. I hope to see you again soon! Greg Voge General Manager - Garrison
It was absolutely amazing. The food was delicious and very originally prepared. Our server David was awesome. I’d recommend this place 100%! The steak was outstanding as well as the appetizers and the dessert. Would love to go back.
Amazing food! Absolutely loved this place - the must order item is definitely the avocado butter. Service was great, and we sat up and the counter - great view of the chefs making your meal.
Just ate here for the third time. One of the top three restaurants in Austin. Maybe the best. Emmer and Rye, Red Ash, and Garrisons are my tops after eating at the top 50 plus in Austin last year. Between the open flame grill and their smoker, all their food is fire or smoke influenced which makes for every dish being a keeper. Try their new smoked chicken entree. This is one special place!
I work for a travel company - so I am on the road a lot and eat out more than I eat at home. I booked Garrison for a group of coworkers who were in town for an event. I typically try to eat at local restaurants when traveling and avoid hotel establishments - but I was more than pleasantly surprised by Garrison. The food was excellent - it was our best meal in Austin. Everyone in your party from foodies to people who want something more traditional will be happy. The real standout was the service. Eugene worked with us and, as someone who is constantly eating out, I can honestly say that I can't remember the last time service was that exceptional. He is phenomenal. Attentive, helpful, funny, authentic - just a real pleasure.
Excellent service. Everyone wished us a happy anniversary. Great menu and wine recommendations by our waiter. Delicious food and fun atmosphere.
Excellent service and very unique dishes, what I want to pay for when going out to a higher end establishment. We asked them to serve us family style so we all could try the different offerings. The calamari was by far the best and most unique I had ever had.
Good Evening Nadine, I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us, thank you for coming in. Greg Voge General Manager - Garrison
Wonderful dining experience. Excellent service, food and decor. Will definitely be returning
We had a wonderful meal. Top notch service complements the wonderful food. Really excellent without being over stuffy. Totally recommend
Like some of the reviews I read earlier, this restaurant is not what you would expect for a hotel restaurant; it was outstanding. From the service, to the food presentation and execution of the plates. Party of five, we ordered almost everything off the appetizer menu and they were very delicious. The more pleasant surprises were the sourdough bread and the chef’s complimentary amuse bouche which were just “accessories” to our meal but were to me the highlights and absolute winners. My kampachi was absolutely delicious and even refreshing in flavor. The artichokes could have used a bit more flavor but still delicious. Main course for me was the bucatini pasta with crabmeat in a spicy tomato based pasta that was cooked perfectly. My husband ordered the grilled Brandi o and it was amazing, perfect crust, scrumptious flavor; wow!
My fellow diners were very happy with their entrées. The Chef even prepared a bucatini al burro for the child at the table that everyone felt were outstanding. Everything was beautifully presented and definitely exceeded all our expectations.
Soufflé, carrot cake, merengue with Bourbon ice cream for dessert. The latter one being my favorite for its quest at originality and being more unusual but my table preferred the others.
Wine list was very good in variety and value.
My only complain would be that the dining room was extremely loud and it was hard to carry a conversation but I’m not sure there was something the staff could have done to prevent or control this.
Will definitely recommend. Maybe not for a romantic dinner when it is this busy.
Food was super sub par for the price... hotel food basically. Sad... thought I found a new dope spot.
This is one of the best new restaurants in Austin and somewhat surprising to find in a large hotel. Our server was fantastic - provided great information without being overly intrusive. All of the dishes were prepared perfectly. We will definitely go back.
Our server was kind, charismatic, and incredibly personable. We went in with an idea of what we were going to have, and he made recommendations that enhanced every part of the meal. 10/10.
Food and service were amazing! Our server Eugene went above and beyond to make her experience wonderful. They even modified one of the specials to our liking, and also brought out a special dessert that they just thought we would even like! Definitely going to revisit here.
Food is exceptional - but by far, the service is the
most excellent i’ve encountered!
Loved the counter seating with the chef and kitchen as your entertainment. The food was great and service excellent for Austin is probably one of the Best!!
Extraordinary Food! Perfect Service!
