                        There was no host, our waiter didn’t ask if we wanted a second round of drinks. He was the only server working, so cutous to him!

                        When I arrived, I was told my reservation wasn’t important and to just find a table myself. Then no one came to my table for about 25 minutes, so I left and found food somewhere else.

                        I had a business dinner and made a reservation for a party of 4 because Austin is now insane. I was taken back when I arrived with 2 of my 3 guests and was told very rudely that my 7pm resy was not there. Turns out, my mistake it was 715. The hostess snidely told me the table would not be ready until that exact moment. We wandered to the bar... and low and behold one of my guests (a blonde woman) was already seated in my table. I guess even though the resy was in my name, they wouldn't seat me early. It's hard to wonder if melanin was not a part of that decision. Ok, letting that slide. This restaurant is a slim space, very well designed. Not all the tables were full but they seated us RIGHT IN FRONT of a two piece band that had amp'd up their music. We couldn't talk, couldn't hear the server, lots of shouting. I love live music but this was insane. The server recommended the red fish and both my coworker ordered it. Oh my goodness, we both were overwhelmed by how oversalted it was. I couldn't finish it. My boss asked for a few pieces of bread, to which the hostess said that is not available. Good news- Wednesdays is half priced bottles and pricey drinks!

                        Group Therapy is one of our favorite places to eat in Austin! Anytime we have guests in town, we bring them by. There’s something on the menu for everyone and it never disappoints! View and service is also always amazing.

                        The service was very slow. Our waitress went missing for half an hour and we ended up needing to place our order at the bar. When spending $200+ on a dinner, we would hope we would not have to seek get up from our table and go to the bar to place our food and drink orders. Food was good, but we do not plan on going back with this disappointing experience.

                        Restaurant was empty. Everything took a long time to come out from food to drinks. Not sure there system but if it was busy I could only imagine the wait time. Great ambience and place just make sure you have no where to go to enjoy to its fullest.

                        This was our first time at brunch at Group Therapy. We were pleasantly surprised at the variety of options. First, the coffee was very good, and served hot. I ordered the basic American breakfast. The eggs were done correctly, the chicken sausage was good. My partner ordered the chicken and waffles. The chicken was very good and the portion size was good. Our server was attentive, and the staff members we encountered were helpful. We will definitely be back!

                        First time going to group therapy for dinner in the ambience was 10/10. it doesn't take much to impress me HAHA but it definitely has boutique hotel vibes, romantic dimly lighting and amazing energy from the live music and friendly staff. My only complaint was that it was extremely loud and it felt like I had to scream to have conversation with my group, but the live music itself was excellent. That's typically how it goes though! Ordered the salmon and while it was quite expensive it was delicious!! Get the Brussels sprouts and Barata toast to start!!!

                        We had the fries, bahn mi, and the sampler. The only thing we didn’t like was the bahn mi. It’s a deconstructed bahn mi and does not have the pickled vegetables. Also the mustard or horseradish is really heavy. The drinks are very expensive. $16. They should be more like $12-$14.

                        The ambience and decor is amazing. The food would have been better if we were given it when it was hot, but due to the lack of service we weren't able to get it at its peak. It's a shame too because everything was good, it just would have been better if we had a consistent waitress/waiter.

                        We overall loved our experience. The food and drink options were plenty, and everything was delicious. It was a bit pricey for a standard hotel restaurant, so the value isn't great, but it was a fun time.

                        They were not even busy and we had horrible service. We were there for over 2 hours because of how terrible they were. Will not be returning.

                        A shout out to our amazing server Joselyn! She was fantastic being so helpful in helping us order and just being so nice to us. The lamb lollypops she recommended as a starter were out of this world! Great interesting cocktails as well. Will definitely return.

                        Overall a very okay experience. Our server was incredibly rude (never came to refill our water after asking multiple times, took plates with food still on then when not all of us were done eating, never came to check on us after bringing us our food, stacked plates very loudly, acted like we were such an inconvenience, etc.) Food was good, nothing incredible. I asked for my lamb lollipops medium rare and they were well done (and I wasn’t able to tell our server that because she never came to ask how the food was). Ambience was great! Definitely will not be going back. Also I had put in the open table app that we were celebrating a birthday and there was absolutely no acknowledgement of that, which is fine, but I just expected better especially for celebrating a special occasion!

                        Had a great time at Group Therapy. Made the reservation under “special occasion” as my partner and I were celebrating our anniversary. They were kind and thoughtful enough to call a few hours before our reservation to offer an appetizer or bottle of champagne, on the house, as a token to our celebration. The service was spectacular and the food was delicious. Great ambiance and overall a great experience.

                        The decor / environment is beautiful! Interesting but tasteful. Food was average. Went for brunch with two girl friends, and we enjoyed mimosas while catching up. When ordering, the waitress recommended that we get a bottle if we wanted more than one each. Definitely not cheap. A bottle of La Marca Prosecco was $60. I would probably come back for happy hour for the environment, another time, but brunch was too much ($150 for 3).

                        My boyfriend and I went to celebrate a late valentines dinner here. My boyfriend enjoyed his drink more than anything else on the table. Some of the items needed more flavor or it was over cooked. There was nothing that stood out to me except for the ambience.

                        First time diners at Group Therapy. The Hotel Zaza itself is amazing - fun, eclectic, hip and happening. We had reservations and were seated upon arrival. Great seats, in the bar area, but off to the side so we weren't in the all of the hub-bub, but still close enough for some great people watching. They were having a Valentine's Day special drink menu and my husband's old fashioned drink was delicious! I had wine because they had my favorite wine by the glass (yea me!). We shared a ceasar salad (although tasty, had a little bit too much dressing on it for my taste). I ordered the poke bowl and it had so much food, I couldn't even eat it all. It was delicious, I might add. My husband had the shrimp bucattini and he thoroughly enjoyed it as well. Our waitress was always right there when we needed her - great service. Highly recommend this place not only for the atmosphere, but for the food and drinks - just a super fun place with a great vibe and great photo op vignettes (if you're into that sort of thing).

                        My fiancé and I came here for a date night. It was so fun and the restaurant was beautiful. Our food and drinks were amazing. I got the pasta with shrimp and he got the steak. We got the trio appetizer (it came with lamb lollipops, calamari, and Brussels) and each were delicious. I’m giving it a 4 overall because the music was very loud. I’m not sure why- it’s a romantic setting and people talking but it was so loud we could hardly carry a conversation.

                        Ambiance, rooftop view is breathtaking, the drinks were ok, I ordered a chicken sandwich and paid $17 for it, and was very disappointed. Chick fil a, Whataburger or mcDonalds would’ve gave me a nice thick piece of chicken for much cheaper. The patty was just breading and barely any chicken, the fries were super thin and oily. Hopefully their brunch is better. We spent $100 and were very disappointed with the food. It’s really just the view and ambiance you’re going for.
