    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.

    Honestly, though the price was steep, the porterhouse steak was the best steak I have ever had. Delicious and melt in your mouth cooked to perfection—-even my son agreed it was s the most wonderful steak he had tasted. Crudo and octopus were amazing, and the service was impeccable and catered to each diner. This is a place that cares about the customer while providing a unique, delicious, and amazing dining experience.

    Our waiter, David, was INSANELY wonderful. It was my Mom's 80th birthday and he truly made it special for her. I travel worldwide, and I've never received this level of service. It was exactly what I wanted for her special celebration. If you want a dining experience that you will never forget, book Garrison.

    The food and the service were amazing. I had made a reservation for the wrong night, but when we got there, the hostess, Lexi, took care of it seamlessly. It’s not often you encounter people like her that take care of a mistake so easily without making you feel foolish. Great restaurant!

    We've never been here before and wanting to try something new. Went here for our anniversary and was incredibly surprised. My wife loves to cook, so we reserved the bar seats that look directly into the kitchen. We were amazed at how calm, collective and smooth the kitchen operated. There were only 5-8 staff in there and not once did we see anyone frantic or running around. That in itself was a real treat. The service was superb, Ryan took great care of us all night. Every time a dish was delivered to us, there was a explanation of the food and the way it was prepared. We started off with the most amazing rolls with fermented honey and butter and everything from there to steaks was perfect. This will definitely not be our last time to visit. It is about a 45 minute drive for us, but we're already planning to go back next month.

    The food was exquisitely prepared and beautifully presented. We shared the Branzino; it is definitely large enough for two. Be sure to order the Bok Choy side dish. It was wonderful. We can't wait to go back and try the Duck Breast---which we avoided only because it has Fois Gras, and we both have annual medical labs coming up. We were so full of appetizers and other food that we had no room for dessert. However, I am certain, it, too, would have been extraordinary.

    You can't go wrong with your order. I recommend that you ask lots of questions about anything you don't know. They are very helpful in guiding you toward what you like or are looking for. Highlights for me: tuna, tater tots, trout, and soufflés.

    Food was good but portions were either tiny or overly expensive. I got the duck and it was literally 4 tiny slices of duck the size of a fast food salad chicken slices. Service was very poor. They sat us at a wobbly table, completely out of balance, it took talking to 4 different people to get it taken care of. Mains came out within 10 min of the app and they kept trying to take our app plates, they tried 3 times while we were still actively eating the app before they stopped and then proceeded to ignore us entirely. We sat with a table full empty plates for 30 min, had to ask for water refills. Very awkward.

    Fantastic food, fantastic service, and just an overall great experience. I never thought of a hotel restaurant being a great date place, or representative of fine dining, until the Garrison. This place is truly a hidden gem and I would definitely try again even if I weren’t staying in the hotel. Highly recommend if you’re looking for an amazing fine dining experience.

    The service from start to finish was impeccable. Our server knew her menu, made great suggestions, and listened beautifully presenting us with a special dish, gratis. Beautiful space, quiet but not clubby. Branzino was delightful! The chicken was so moist and delicious.The desserts were excellent and the Parker rolls with butter and honey were grand. Duck breast with foiegras and truffles was very rich and tasty, maybe the slightest bit chewy but one of the better duck breasts I’ve had in Austin.
