                        This was literally the most perfect meal. My husband and I shared the oysters, pan cristal, scallops, halibut and 10oz wagyu and every bite was amazing! They perfectly coursed out each dish and made them easy to split. As a bonus, when they heard it was our 10 yr anniversary, they gave us sourdough ice cream- amazing!!

                        We went here to celebrate my fiancee birthday and decided on the chef testing. The whole experience was amazing, from the food bites to the servers giving her the front in center making her feel special. It's going to hurt my bank account a little bit but it was an experience I don't think she'll forget anytime soon, so well worth it. The ambiance was a bit loud and we were a bit chilly at our table but honestly not too bad. Big props to Hestia, great staff and food!

                        Nice location with good food but I wouldn't go so far as to say exceptional for those prices. Would much rather spend my money at Jeffries.

                        I've dined here many times and will say the place is simply exceptional! My first experience was a couple of years ago when I thought the same. But then during the COVID times when I dined here I thought quality of the food went down. However, I can tell you they are back at exceptional in every way! Service is impeccable and the food is absolutely the best, top quality, presentation, and of course taste. Thank you! This probably is one of the best fine dining restaurants in Austin!

                        Hestia provided the best meal I’ve had in Austin with no exceptions. TLDR: a foodies dream; elegant dishes amazingly executed, great wine list and service. Small plate courses that were pricey but totally worth the quality. You will love it but go prepared $$$$. The staff were attentive and engaging, the sommelier’s wine recommendation were great. We ordered a few bites a few appetizers and two entrees and shared everything. All were amazing. For me the meal highlights were the crab bite, the scallops appetizer and the the halibut entree My wife loved the scratch made bread and mushroom entree. The chocolate mousse was the best dessert I’ve ever had. Their commitment to excellence is obvious. This is elegant food made by master chefs. They specialize in perfectly executed dishes not giant ones. It was for me the best restaurant in Austin for what they do. If you are into fine dining this is the place.

                        We absolutely loved our time at Hestia!!! Fantastic food and drinks, the service was above and beyond, and everyone made us feel so welcomed and celebrated for our 5th anniversary. They even took special care to include our one year old (who tagged along with us) by bringing out kitchen utilities to help entertain him…which we so appreciated. We’d definitely recommend and would go back!

                        I've lived in Austin for 8 years now and I frequent some of the best restaurants around town and I can honestly say that this was one of the best meals I've ever had in Austin! The food, ambiance, and service were 5-Stars all the way! We had 4 people and decided to go with the tasting menu so we could try a ton of stuff out. Started with crab bites, then had oysters, beef tartar, scallops, then we ended with the 120 day dry-aged waygu tomahawk ribeye.....probably the best steak I've ever eaten....melted in your mouth! Highly recommend Hestia to anyone and everyone!!

                        The crab tart is a must! The scallops are divine! And the sunchokes are the best preparation I’ve ever had💞. You can’t go wrong here. Service is impeccable. Looking forward to my next experience.

                        Went for a celebration date night and had a fabulous experience. Did the chef’s tasting menu and it was superb. It was pretty loud, which was the only downside I can think of— the service was great, the extra touches to enhance the celebration were wonderful, and we cannot wait to come back the next time we decide to splurge!

                        The hight of fine dining without the pretentious atmosphere. Welcoming and warm, as any hearth should be! Service was attentive but not smothering, helpful in an uncondescending way. Each and every dish surpassed my expectations. I can’t wait to return to try more and share with my friends!!

                        Went for my birthday dinner - we were pleasantly surprised all throughout our experience. First, the staff had taken the time to sign a card for me - something I have never experienced in dining out over the last however many birthdays. Next, great explanation of the menu by our waiter, who was a real pro. We chose the tasting menu, which turned out to be both adventurous and extremely tasty!! Every dish was a delight, but I especially liked the scallop and the halibut. Both were perfectly grilled, with just a hint of the smoke Hestia is famous for. We chose a few of the paired wines, and they were lovely as well. The sommelier was very helpful, and we chose a lovely Madeira with dessert that was just right. Altogether, a fabulous experience - if you love fine food, the experience is worth every penny !!

                        I loved Hestia. This time we ordered chief tasting menu, it was a big miss. Steak was too salty and except 2 dish, rest of them were miss in flavor. Great presentation though. Spent 470$ for 2 and only got 2 amazing flavors out of the tasting menu and wine. Rest was blah

                        This is hands down one of top 3 in Austin. The service is SO professional- this staff take their job very seriously. Every single person knows the menu and everyone helps with everything- clearing tables, pouring water or wine, checking in. The food is off the charts with creativity and taste. The ambience is beautiful

Our waitstaff took excellent care of us and even provided complimentary champagne since we were celebrating. The meal was pricey but worth it. It was an amazing experience all around!!! Can’t recommend it enough for a special occasion. We had the best time.

                        Incredible food and service! We loved everything we got! Ambiance is great, and dining here is an experience to be enjoyed. Pro tip - there is a Chefs Tasting Menu option and a "let your server pick what you get" option in addition to ordering a la carte. We weren't quite hungry enough for the tasting menu, so we let our server choose. He chose some things we wouldn't have necessarily chosen ourselves, but that were incredible! I highly recommend this option.

                        The food was absolutely delicious and very pricey. There was a nice selection of wines and other beverages. The restaurant was very busy, but the wait staff never missed a beat, although I will add it seemed there was a different person checking on us several times. So it was not really a personal experience with the waiter. If there were less staff, more personal attention, instead of just “doing the job” we would have enjoyed it more. It was extremely loud. We did not linger over dessert simply because we were tired of not being able to hear our own conversation.
