I’ve been to Grizzelda’s many times and it never disappoints. During COVID they enforce social distancing and wearing masks away from the table. So that’s great! The food and service are awesome. We went during Happy Hour so the Grizz Mizz were only $5 and the appetizers were half price. It’s I possible to beat those prices and get the same quality drinks and food during non HH but they do it. No matter how full we are, we never skip the churros at the end! I suggest the same for you.

They were able to accommodate our larger group via reservation nicely at a quaint circular table by ourselves so noise level was perfect and the ambiance was incredible! Everyone from the hostess to Our server, Izzy, were amazing, kind, punctual, and delivered incredible customer service. Not to mention the food and drinks were great portions, delicious and filling!! They made my friend’s bday perfect!! THANK YOU

I was so excited to take my sister who was visiting to this eatery for brunch because of the write-ups on Yelp. I found it overpriced for the food and nothing special. I mean $13 for avocado toast that consisted of a small piece of toast, scrambled eggs(???) over a small amount of avocado and then minimal seasoning? My sister and her husbands meal was barely touched. So disappointed. #shouldhavestayedhome

Cocktails and food were delicious. Tables inside were appropriately spaced. My only concern was when a large group of girls sat at a table near us, approx 10 people, which seemed large. Most other restaurants seem to cap capacity at 6. It doesn’t deter me from eating at the restaurant again, because I otherwise felt safe, but just something for others diners to note in case they have a concern.

We went for my sisters bday, which I mentioned in the reservation. They allowed us to book a reservation at 8 but upon arrival saw they close at 9. Obviously, they would have said something if this was an issue once reservation was made. We did not feel rushed by all means, but disappointed we weren't given an opportunity to order dessert for the birthday girl after we mentioned in the reservation and to the server once we arrived. When it came time for dessert we were told the kitchen was closed. Very sad ambience, due to COVID, I am sure. Very few people dining and drinks took forever. Food was good but a little overpriced.

Nestled in East Austin and not far from sibling restaurant Jacoby’s you’ll find Grizzelda’s.

They have complementary valet parking partially due to a small lot but it’s also a nice touch to set the tone for a glamorous experience.

Staff is one point and focused on your needs. They have a Happy Hour everyday until 6pm which showcases their signature “Grizz Mizz” margarita. A beautiful hue make this a highly photogenic cocktail with a great flavor to match.

The menu changes often voting off dishes that don’t perform so the menu is essentially being tuned to showcase the best dishes. The chef here is very good at his craft and the head bartender is equal measure as well.

The food and drinks are spectacular and the ambience of this place is an InstaPersons wet dream. So much glam and personality in this place.

Indoor or outdoor they make it fun and keep it up with solid consistency. The staff have been here for years which lends to better service and like their menu they are the best of the best.

I regularly bring family here as a first stop when visiting Austin. This is also my weekly dining spot for all the reasons previously mentioned.

A true gem in East Austin!

Such a fun ambiance with a cozy patio, outstanding service, and great food and drinks. I loved the barbacoa plate I had, and the corn tortillas actually held up when making tacos! Appears to be a place you could go just for fun or for a special occasion/date night. I will definitely be returning!

It was a second date and emotions were high. Everything was great up until the host asked us to give up our table. We ordered 6 drinks and fajitas for two and apparently in this new normal we were taking up too much space even after a 23% tip.
