    Had dinner at this wonderful place. Excellent small bite - great marinated fish - wonderful beef tartare in a southwest style - delicious chicken, with innovative, tangy sauce. Wonderful wine list too. Not inexpensive, but worth a visit for an occasion!

    Top notch professional caring service. Loved the never ending unique tasting menu clearly created with a passion. Would always prefer a much lighter hand on the salt in just about every restaurant in Austin and always kick myself when I forget to say go lightly. Hestia was no exception, but when we requested less salt, our wish was granted. Many complex lovely flavors and definitely a special experience. Cheers.

    Free parking in the same building is what makes the experience. It was raining when we came but since we could park inside Third + Shoal (free for two hours) it was not a problem. Food and service were topnotch. We had the halibut and the pork chop. Really gastronomical.

    Started with the tartar. It was excellent. Followed by butternut squash which was equally excellent. Then had the halibut. It was unbelievable. Buttery. Perfectly cooked and can with excellent sauce one could literally drink for dessert. Which we had the leftover sourdough bread for dessert. Looks weird and sounds weird but was a fantastic finish oh and Crystal the wine expert was also great and fun to talk with. A bit pricey but well worth it for a special occasion

    Food was outstanding. Especially the mushrooms. The problem I have with Hestia is how LOUD it is. "Energetic" is a euphemism. It is downright LOUD. Annoyingly so. I could barely hear my dater across the table and she complained about having to shout to be heard. Probably good for table turnover, but not for making an enjoyable dining experience. If the food was not stellar, we would likely not go back.

    Menus was a little overwhelming (not the price but the way you have to choose food) but we managed! Food was out of this world and the servers was on point! Never let our glasses go below half empty! Beautiful location and the dining room was gorgeous! Loved the explanation of everything! We will be back again! Thanks Colleen Craig for the recommendation to this wonderful restaurant.

    Excellent food but some of the pricing seemed a bit much — like when it came to the steak. The steak was great but really seemed as good as some 50-60 dollar steak dinners I’ve had. The mushroom entree was the best thing we tried, and we’d come back just for that. The appetizers were tasty but again not worth the pricing somehow. (Like the carb tart was super tasty but I feel like Uchiko once had something similar that was slightly more enjoyable at a slightly lower cost per bite). So, while it was a really great dinner I think we aren’t likely to return unless it’s during some promotional or happy hour pricing.

    Celebrated wife’s birthday at Hestia. Warm on time greeting, ushered to nice table. Hostess pointed out the wood fired grill in the kitchen as we passed & offered brief explanation of the restaurant name & food prep process. Server was knowledgeable and personable, offering suggestions/favorites. We greatly enjoyed the crab starter, squash small plate and halibut & steak entrees. All were creative, nicely presented and delicious! We completed our meal with the sourdough ice cream dessert, which was amazing. Great meal at Hestia-we look forward to returning soon.

    The food was INSANELY GOOD. This is a special place and I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves fine dining. The only downside is that their wood fired oven exhausts into the restaurant fairly aggressively so you leave smelling like you’ve just come from BBQ Cookoff. Other than that, I loved it!

    James was our waiter with Ruben as the assist. I couldn’t recommend them more! The food was filling and delicious, really amazing- we did the tasting menu and I loved all the courses and their attention to detail as well as meeting my dietary restrictions. The staff had an anniversary card waiting for us at our table, it made everything feel really special. James went above and beyond to make our evening perfect- he is such an asset to your team.

    We hadn’t been to Hestia since before the pandemic but when my mom came into town, we knew we had to take her. And it did not disappoint! The hosts greeted us with that trusted Austin kindness. Our server was attentive and patient with our questions. The runners were knowledgeable and described each dish with detail. When one dish came out not pescatarian friendly, there was no back and forth. The runner immediately apologized and promised an appropriate version would be out quickly. And it was. The sommelier helped us pick a fantastic bottle of wine and even took our pre first course drink order. The smoked crab bites were a mouthful of flavor. Small but mighty. The cucumber small plate was so well balanced. Each item on the plate made complete sense. The scallop small plate was hands down the best scallop I’ve ever had. Perfectly cooked and we really appreciated that it was cut into thirds so we could take advantage of filling each spoon with scallop and sauce. All three of us ordered the halibut entree and agreed we’d eat it again and again. The browned butter was not over powering but elevated the fish in a symphonic way. Amazing. Now, you may feel a bit full towards the end but do not skip dessert! We had the sourdough ice cream - yea, sourdough ice cream. I was a bit skeptical about tomato with ice cream but holy moly. It complimented the ice cream so well. And the ash on the ice cream was just insanely good. The buñuelo dessert was impressive. I don’t need gold flakes on food, but I’m definitely not made about it! A perfect end to a perfect meal.
