Jeffrey's Restaurant & Bar has been an Austin fine dining institution since 1975. In 2012 the restaurant closed for a major renovation and was reopened by McGuire Moorman Lambert Hospitality. The legendary restaurant, nestled in the Clarksville neighborhood just west of downtown, features a lively bar and three distinct dining rooms. The menus, from executive chef Mark McCain, features dry-aged prime steaks, updated classic fine dining, and locally sourced produce. The award-winning wine list, one of the largest and most diverse in Texas, features highly-sought after vintages from Old and New World producers. Private dining in the Napoleon Room and The Apartment is available for special events. Valet service is offered.

The charming neighborhood location, old world service & multiple private dining options make Jeffrey's a true Austin gem. Jeffrey's was named “Top 10 Best New Restaurants” in the country by Bon Appetit magazine in 2013.

    My wife daughter and I were celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary with a dinner at Jeffrey’s. We have heard and read great things so decided we needed to try for ourselves. It was definitely worth the wait. The restaurant is a quaint and intimate old house with a maze of rooms and variety of seating. The service was efficient and professional. The entire meal and drinks were outstanding. They even gave us each a glass of wine to celebrate our anniversary. The wine was so good we asked our server to write down the name of it so we can buy some for home. We had the deviled eggs and ham croquettes. Both were delicious. We then had caviar. It was a first for all of us and we all enjoyed it. Even our 12 year old daughter partook. The tiny sourdough “pancakes” that come with it were amazing. Our entrees were all delicious. My wife and daughter had filet, I had the bacon wrapped veal tenderloin. We finished the night with 2 soufflés. Chocolate and Dulce de Lexhe. Both were superb. If you are thinking about going to Jeffrey’s, stop waiting and get there. You won’t regret it.

    Excellent: service, ambiance, presentation, cocktails Good: food, though items could be simplified (eg, too much sweetbread in tortellini, potato/crab addition to snapper, bacon around veal and lobster) Needs improvement: the wine pricing is very aggressive, and I would guess the menu is not approachable for most. 90% of the bottles are over $200 with many over $1000. It’s almost a novelty menu. The wine menu should provide guidance to help “sell” the wine and explain why I should spend so much on a bottle.

    Every dish we had was absolutely fabulous! We are foodies and eat at the best restaurants around the world, this restaurant lived up to our standards. This is now in our top 5 Austin restaurants. Some of the highlights were: Popovers, Truffle deviled eggs, king crab avocado toast, fried oysters and the dover sole. Every one of those items were at 10!! Can’t wait to go back!

    Jeffrey’s never disappoints. It’s been an Austin staple that even my parents frequented back in the day. My girlfriend said she had the best steak of her life and I will always regret not ordering several orders of the truffle deviled eggs. Love Jeffrey’s!

    Jeffrey's rightfully deserves the hype it receives. The dining spaces are nicely decorated and tables set beautifully and adequately spaced for intimate dining. The menu has a grand selection of uniquely prepared dishes using very high quality ingredients. The wine list is outstanding. Quality wines by the glass, too. First time dining here, and enjoyed the lobster bisque, Nantucket scallops, Duck breast, and short ribs. No room for dessert this time, but the offerings looked amazing. They make a very nice martini and Negroni as well.

    Every element was great! The only small snag was "OpenTable" or the restaurant, somehow changed our reservations. They were made for 5:15, party of two, and were confirmed as such. However when we arrived they had changed to 6:30 for party of 3, which was incorrect. I 'felt' I had to show my text confirmation, as they had different information. But then it appears by their affect, they saw what had happened in the system.

    Beautiful experience since we arrived. super welcoming hosts, cozy and amazing interior design and live piano music. The food was really good but the best of our night was our super sweet and professional server - Harold. He guided is into what to order and was knowledgeable about the wine we ordered, and made our night super special. I wished it was slightly more affordable but it’s a great spot for a special occasion. will be going back!

    Honestly the NYE "Experience" was a little disappointing. My wife and I had been to Jeffrey's for our anniversary on Nov 30th and had a fantastic meal. So we were excited about coming back for NYE... we prepaid for the reservation which was significantly higher price than we paid back in Nov (which included our daughter also). We expected there would be some additional "extras" as part of the "experience"..... frankly there wasn't - it was comparable to regular menu - thought they might have offered a complimentary champagne upon arrival. Yes there were some caviar and truffle gnocchi as an additional items for extra charge. Food was very good but not as good as last visit - the lobster bisque was warm, not hot, as were the entrees. Service was good, not exceptional - we had to wait a while after being seated to be greeted by our server - there was inconsistent pace in the meal. Perhaps chalk it up to NYE but the mark-up for the "experience" was excessive.

    We were so excited to go to Jeffrey’s for New Year’s Eve. Seemed pretty pricey but we felt it would be worth it. Our reservation was at 5 pm. We ordered drinks and eventually were brought the prefix appetizers. Followed by popovers that weren’t hot. Two seconds later our second round of appetizers arrived. Hard to eat both at the same time. I had tuna tartare that was okay, nothing special and it wasn’t cold. Room temp. My husband enjoyed his tortellini appetizer. Following a few more drinks, our entrees didn’t arrive for at least another hour or so. We were told that our ticket got lost. How could that be when we were the first couple in the restaurant? We’ve dined at Jeffrey’s for over 40 years. Not sure what happened, but we were disappointed. The dessert came and it wasn’t even cooked. It was the chocolate soufflé. We hope things get better, just felt like our experience was not worth the $1000 we spent.

    VERY disappointed with this restaurant and celebrating a birthday also. The poor service was not for lack of people our server just did a disappearing act. We were there for 2 hours and probably saw our server 3 times especially to get the check. Also forgot to bring us our leftovers. Needless to say not a good way to celebrate a birthday.

    Absolutely fantastic in every sense of the word. This is the kind of place that makes you yearn for classic dining experiences of yesteryear - I could see Sinatra and his pals, or Humphrey Bogart and a date sitting comfortably in a booth just enjoying themselves. I can’t believe some people come here in jeans and t shirts… but, Jeffrey’s isn’t pretentious though, and welcomes all. I dig that.

    The food was pretty bland and basic. Nothing was really exciting, the flavors were lacking. The Sol was cooked well but the sauce wasn't a good match. The fennel and persimmon salad was just off. The flavors didn't go well together.I think Except for the Caesar salad, nothing stood out as amazing. All the cocktails we overly bitter and hardly any sweet. Just nothing to note here.

    Absolute fan of Jeffrey’s. The steak was the best I’ve had, the steak fries were exquisite and the selection of caviar was 10/10. The ambiance is exactly what you want for an adult dinner, whether it be romantic or in a group of friends. Already made reservations to go back in two weeks. Worth every $$$
