The food/service/ambiance was great! The only thing that was misleading was the OpenTable reservation that stated complementary valet parking for Spa and Hotel guests. We ended up having to pay $12 since we were only there for 1.5 hrs.

I've been here a few times in the past year and every time I've noticed improvements with the food and service.
Drinks are always amazing here and the food is great.

Overall not impressed. It took a really long time to get our food, which we thought was strange since it was brunch and nothing should have been complicated plus it was not busy at all. When the food came out, the Steak and Eggs Benedict was underwhelming, overcooked poached eggs and steak. The serving was not worth the price in our opinion. The other food we ordered was decent serving sizes and cooked ok apart from more overcooked eggs. When you order brunch, cooking eggs to the proper temp is very important, no?

The saving grace was the cocktails which were quite delicious and very unique.

We came just for a fun evening out. The Service was Outstanding! Most of the Food was good but we ordered a Cesar Salad and the Lettuce was aged and Brown as well as not Crisp... the Cesar Salad Dressing did not taste correct or was very bland. Other than that no Complaints.

We were very disappointed with the food and service today. The red fish entree we ordered was burned to a crisp on the bottom and inedible. We ordered a side of asparagus with that entree and received three spears… it was actually insulting. Also, the asparagus came out cold.

The ahi tuna starter was also sub par. It was practically drowning in the saltiest sauce that dominated the entire dish. The service was kind of a joke. Our waitress couldn’t answer any questions about the menu items (such as what type of lettuce does this salad come with?). Her initial answer was wrong, by the way (she went to confirm with the chef).

Unfortunate that the food and service disappointed because the atmosphere is nice. However, we won’t be returning.

I absolutely loved this place. The view was beautiful, the music was amazing but not disrupting. I however did not enjoy our server. I have worked in the service industry years ago and I always try to give them the benefit of the doubt but I felt like we were a burden to our server and felt quite out of place. I felt like asking him for things was a huge inconvenience while I watched him chat it up with other guests. We waited nearly 30 minutes for him to run our card and eventually had to ask the manager to do it (who was an absolute doll). If I wanted mediocre service there are countless other places I could have gone and paid far less than $13/mimosa. Other than that hiccup I would say the rest of the experience was wonderful. I had an omelet, the crab deviled eggs and my partner had the chicken and waffles and they were OUTSTANDING. I do really wish we had a better experience with our server but other than that I do see myself frequenting here more often.

Our waitress was awful. Normally I’m not one to bag on people for bad service because I definitely understand that you have off days but she was so unhelpful, very rude, never asked if we were doing well or if we were ready to order stuff. The rooftop is amazing the food was pretty good but if the service is always like that it definitely isn’t worth it. The only good thing I can really say is the rooftop is a pretty view of austin and the inside has a bunch of cool art/pictures.

In the past month I’ve eaten here twice for breakfast, had a mini-cocktail “hour” in the evening, and as of this last occasion, had dinner. A+ breakfast taco first time , okay breakfast buffet on my second visit, frustrating bar experience the night I went in for a cocktail (seemed short-staffed), and then on this dinner visit, I had a very disappointing burger. I ordered it medium, and it was only a shade away from being a hockey puck. It took forever to be acknowledged upon being seated, and I was rarely checked on (at all the above meals, actually). I would have sent my food back at dinner, but at a certain point you may as well just eat it. It also took probably 10-15 minutes to get my check long after I’d finished eating. Service has been an issue on every visit. No one is outright rude - just negligent. (In fact, once I have their attention, they are very nice.) Please have staff check on people more frequently! A lot of us are hotel guests with places to go! The food situation at dinner was probably fixable, but no one ever asked or gave me the opportunity to say anything. It bears mentioning that the atmosphere is great, as is the view outside. If you aren’t in a hurry it’s a pretty cool place for a leisurely meal. Just... maybe not the burger.

The worst service I have ever had. The host that sat us was not welcoming at all which I just brushed off. We then sat there for 10-15 minutes waiting for anyone to acknowledge us. We were finally greeted by our waitress and she took our drink and appetizer order and I quickly got over the long wait to be served. We got one of our appetizers fairly quickly but waited another 10 minutes to get our drinks and then had to remind the waitress of the second appetizer. She brought it sometime later with a third appetizer and said it was on the house which I was pleased with thinking she had realized that she had made a mistake and was not doing a quality job of serving us. Boy was I wrong. We then went forever without any sort of service. We came there for dinner but we’re never given the chance to put in entrees. We got there at 7 and by almost 9 o’clock we were still struggling to get our third drink. The waitress meanwhile was taking shots with her friends in one of the cabanas every 15 minutes. I could go on and on. I am a very reasonable person but this by far the most disrespected I’ve ever felt. I will not be back.

The service was delayed until we asked for water, we then placed our order At the same time. I was not a fan of the blue crab deviled eggs, and the refill of drinks was ignored until again we asked. I understand staffing is hard during these times. Loved the elegance of Hotel ZaZa and the restaurant.

Had to send undercooked eggs back (like egg whites were runny), but they gladly took it back without fuss and brought out a replacement (which was delicious). The food was excellent, as were their cocktails.

It was hard getting the attention of the waitstaff, but they were very attentive when they did make contact.

I wouldn't be upset if I had to eat here again.

This was a really bad experience in Austin. We’ve mostly had great experiences. But this one was awful. Our service was awful- slow, everything took forever, our drinks and food took way too long to get to us..we were the only ones inside the restaurant. We wanted to sit outside and were told we couldn’t. It was freezing inside. All around really awful Austin dining experience at a place that’s supposed to be fun to enjoy.
