Hestia is awesome! This is the second anniversary in a row we have dined there. The food is first rate, and the staff is fantastic. We had the bread service, which was their homemade sourdough bread, with cultured cream and honey and blackened pecan spreads. Words cannot do justice to how tasty this is. I could truly just eat that and nothing else. We also had the Belgian endive and peaches as small plates. Both were delicious. My wife had the 6oz Wagyu bavette and I had the halibut. The beef is perfectly cooked and tender. Delicious. Now I am a meat guy to be sure, but I love fish and particularly Halibut. The halibut dish is over the top excellent. Perhaps the best fish I have ever eaten, and that is not hyperbole. The brown butter sauce it is in is simply sublime, and the snap peas and charred corn just made the dish, as it provides exceptional texture and flavor. To die for. By the time it was all said and done, we were so satiated and happy, that we didn't even order dessert, which NEVER happens with me. I can always find room for dessert, but not this time. We didn't want to risk taking anything away from a perfect meal and wonderful anniversary dinner. Do yourself a favor - go eat at Hestia.

The service was excellent and the food was over the top! The halibut was extraordinary…best I’ve ever had and nothing like it. All the dishes were unique. Highly recommend Hestia!🤩

We loved our experience at Hestia. The team there really went above and beyond to make the experience excellent. We noticed the same level of care for those in the dining room with us. The flavor profile of each item is very unique. The team does a good job explaining the dish. We loved the scallop, wagyu and halibut. We also enjoyed the berkshire pork. It is a different cut that is juicy and fatty. Cocktails offering is a plus 👌🏽 The desserts were great. We had the sourdough ice cream and milky whey.

Most of the entrees were unbalance — too much smoke flavor which overpowered other very interesting flavors. Good concept. Unbalanced execution overall. Sat at least 15 minutes before we even got to place a drink order.

Great food, Amazing Service, ok Value. I wanted to do something really nice and special for my GF and we picked Hestia - we loved the ambiance and the service but the food was pricey for the portions. Would of loved bit more and it would be 5 stars but 8$ for (1) scallop is ALOT :)

We had five dishes. Three were great; two were ok or disappointing. Too much black in many of the dishes. Became visually unattractive as you entered the dish to eat. Undercooked salsify veggies. Very unusual sour dough dessert was really intriguing and tasty. Again, could have done without the charcoal powder on top. The two mains - lion’s mane mushrooms and chicken were very good. Feels like Hestia is still trying to figure out who they are. But definitely an experience to recommend.

It was our 10 year anniversary and from the second we walked in, everyone made us feel v special! We had the perfect table setting with a card signed by the staff waiting for us when we sat down. Justin the floor Somm took the reigns and gave us the best meal we’ve ever had! 10 out of 5 stars, life changing experience. Couldn’t recommend more!

Deliciously Smokey. Charred Chic. High-Touch Presentations.
Hestia embodies a modern eatery to the 'T.' Refined, high brow cooking techniques made approachable with pantry-familiar ingredients with a torchy-flame; fire kissed twist. This curated method paired with a diner-first attitude makes for an EPIC night @ Hestia. Restaurant work is hard and a pandemic environment hasn't been easy for concepts wanting to curate a proper experience for patrons, but Hestia prevailed with new ways to showcase what they're about. From must-have wine pairings to masked food presentations to chef escorted ‘what-you-ordered’ guidance - the team @ Hestia delivered on target. The Scallop, Beef Carpaccio, XO Cabbage, Sotol Sauced Pork Chop were mouthwateringly delicious. This chef team is in complete sync with the products and culinary identity they want to produce & convey.

One of the best dining experiences I have had in the world. My family enjoyed every aspect of Hestia. The staff and service, food, design, and ambiance were exquisite. The dishes were exceptional and unique. The vibe was sophisticated yet casual. And, the greetings (coming an going) from the hostess and staff were kind and genuine and made me and my family the type of welcoming hospitality any diner would want from a high end restaurant like Hestia. On point in every single way. Highly recommend for any diner in Austin or visiting in town.

Everything was absolutely wonderful! From the first cocktails we had at Kalimoxto through our second round of dessert I cannot say enough positive things about our experience. Claudia, our server, was so hospitable and the entire service team were all knowledgeable and so willing to go above and beyond to offer us the best experience. The sommelier, whose name I unfortunately don’t think I ever got, is a next level individual and som and y’all should never let him go! We can’t wait to come back!

This is a nice restaurant but overly pretentious for a place where you have to get your utensils and napkin out of a drawer at your table. But nobody tells you. For the price your food should be plated and not served in a communal bowl. Also everyone should be served at the same time. I did like the bread with the whipped cream butter with fennel pollen!

Absolutely fantastic! We went for our anniversary and I called when I made the reservation and asked for a special table. They have 2 tables that face the kitchen. It was fun watching them prepare and plate dinners. The service was excellent. Everyone was very knowledgeable regarding the food and dietary restrictions. The food was amazing!

We had the bread, the oysters, the cabbage, the salsify, the halibut and the bavette steak. Standout dishes were the bread (yes, the bread), the cabbage, the bavette and the halibut, with the halibut edging out the bavette but by that point I was crazy full. Glad to have the leftovers to 're-enjoy' our meal out.
