    My wife and I were in Austin for 1 night. We were looking for a place to celebrate my birthday. We did some research and landed on Garrison because the reviews were really strong. It did not disappoint. It’s a cool looking restaurant, the service is solid, and the food is excellent. Everything we ate was delicious, but the Parker House Rolls, Porterhouse, and Pecan Soufflé were particularly good.

    From the moment we arrived the team was firing on all cylinders. The hostess was lovely and welcoming and even checked on us during our dinner. JR was our server and seriously one of the best and most personable service experiences ever. He was kind funny and knowledgeable without being intrusive and it was a joyful evening. Loved the Chefs Table and watching Chef and fthe kitchen at work. As someone who visits many restaurants globally, I highly Recommend Garrison as a wonderful culinary experience.

    Underwhelming at best. Having heard much about Garrison and that it was in the Forbes 2022 best Austin restaurant list - something I would take seriously- I was truly disappointed with Garrison. The food is nothing to write home about and the presentation minimalist. Quality doesn’t come close to what I would expect of a highly rated or high quality restaurant. Too bad.

    Food is incredibly good. Portions are ridiculously tiny. About 10 tater tots for $35? The entire menu is way too expensive for what you get. Not at all worth it with all the great food in Austin.

    We came here for my fiancé’s birthday because we heard how great it was. The ambiance was awesome and the staff was fantastic. But for an over $200 bill, the food was NOT great at all. We got the whole fish and the short rib. Short rib was good but the fish for $50 was SO smoky and no other flavor. They also said it was deboned and it was not, my fiancé had to go to the bathroom to cough up bones twice. The non alcoholic thyme drink was literally all ice, 2 sips tops. The wine was also not great at all, we were bummed-won’t return.

    The chef went out of his way to accommodate a guest's allergy and modify the dishes to allow all to enjoy. The atmosphere was quiet, intimate, and warm. The attention to detail, stemware, and flatware were all spectacular and well designed to fit the space, meal, and motif.

    We arrived early and we’re seated early. Service was amazingly friendly and took great care of us. The wine and whiskey lists were quality, and the food hit the spot. The star of the show was their truffle tater tots, which were the best I have had anywhere. The steak and branzino hit the spot and we’re perfectly prepared. 10/10 will return

    The food is truly spectacular. The place is a little difficult to locate because you literally have to go through another one of the hotels’ restaurants to get to it, but the ambience is wonderful. We went during the holidays and the decorations were truly amazing. But the food and service are bar none. They really should rename the tater tot dish something else because “tater tots” implies simplistic and perhaps silly and this dish is anything but.

    Food was awesome (bbq grouper and steak) very well cooked and the portions are on the smaller side which I prefer. Service was spot on. The decor reminded me of Vegas in a non positive way and the acoustics are bad so it is noisy. But cocktails were very good and the food is really worth it. About $110.-per person with moderate alcohol.

    The parker house rolls are simply warmed buns and not worth the price. The grouper was overcooked and did not taste good. The steak was the only redeeming entree. The entrees are paired with a side like a starch or vegetable; however, they are extremely small. For example, the grouper you get three tiny bok choy pieces. I would much prefer an option for a la carte sides for vegetables or starches to get more than three pieces. With that being said, the bok choy did not taste good and was over-salted. Overall, the entire experience did not justify the premium price of this restaurant and we will not be returning.

    This was one of the worst meals we’ve ever had. Nothing that we had was good, especially for the price. We ordered entrees from the oak-grilled section of the menu and neither entree had been grilled. My husband got a $70 steak that was cold and tough. Definitely had not been grilled. My chicken was fine, but again, not grilled. The accompanying sauces were too salty. I ordered a glass of red wine for $27 and it was about a 2 ounce pour. There was nothing good about anything that we ate there.

    Dishes were very heavy on salt. (Wagyu steak, the chicken, even the soufflé had heavy salt!) Way too much salt for me. Only recommended if you love heavy salt In everything!

    Incredibly overpriced. The 'pork tomahawk' was more of a chop with one rib, all sliced so it didn't look like one cut of meat. Glad we asked how many scallops came with the order because $28 for 1.5 scallops is very overpriced. The wagyu tasted fine but small (two strips of meat) and it's clear it wasn't the grade you would expect at that price point. Overall everything was fine but nothing was outstanding besides the cost.

    The food wasn’t good at all! The bread was awful- infusion cardboard . The chicken was a cross between mush bland and frozen dinner. The complement dessert was maybe hemp cbd jelly balls with tart black coffee caramel mousse squares It wasn’t good at all. I m pretty bummed about it.
