Jeffrey's Restaurant & Bar has been an Austin neighborhood fine dining institution since 1975. In 2012 the restaurant closed for a major renovation and has reopened under the leadership of Austin's premiere restaurant group, McGuire Moorman Hospitality. The restaurant, nestled in a quiet neighborhood just west of downtown features a lively bar, three distinct dining rooms and menus featuring dry-aged prime steaks, updated classic fine dining and locally sourced produce. Private dining is available, free valet is standard & local car service is offered.

Josephine House offers lunch, brunch, happy hour, dinner & Monday night steak frites. The Clarksville cottage features a small marble bar for coffee or cocktails, intimate tables in the dining room, shady nooks on our patio and a grassy front lawn for lounging. Chef Alex Manley and her team prepare an eclectic daily menu featuring the best locally sourced products.

My boyfriend and I LOVED this place. The food was amazing, a little expensive but everything was worth it. Love the popcorn and bread as appetizers, too. Our waitress was wonderful and the overall service was great. Thank you!

It was the worse dinning experience I have had. I don't think the staff wanted to be there. The staff including the manager was more concerned about them than the customer. Been going there for years but will never return.

Food and atmosphere but SO over priced and stuffy! This restaurant is as expensive as FRENCH LAUNDRY and I promise you that it doesn’t even come close to that experience. They have a very high opinion of themselves and the duck was too tough to enjoy.

Food was amazing. My date and I shared everything. Started with the truffle deviled eggs, which I now believe is the only way they should be prepared, and the only complaint was that there were only 2 and I could have eaten 10. Had a Cesar salad, the Niman Farms Ribeye, and Brussels sprouts. Steak was cooked perfectly at mid-rare +, salad was simple but exceptional at the same time, Brussels sprouts might as well have been dessert. All very good. Got the soufflé to finish the meal, we were very disappointed that the Baked Alaska wasn’t available, but I think it’s absence was covid related. Also, it was very dark in the restaurant, but that’s just personal preference. Service was fine, definitely nothing that went wrong. Really thought the food alone was good enough to warrant 5 stars.

Amazing restaurant with quality food, Great ambiance, and engaging staff. We ate here for our 5 year anniversary and had a great experience. Our food was delicious and our waitress, Vanessa, was so friendly and helpful and made us feel special from the start! We will be back and send friends in as well!

WOW!!! Occasionally when traveling away from home, you discover a gem of a dining experience. I’d seen Jeffrey’s on a few “best of” Austin lists. Decided last minute to make a reservation for date night with my wife. Unbelievable in every aspect. From the minute we were greeted at the door, the service was amazing. The drinks cold and perfect. The food was prepared to 5 star perfection....the “popover” pastry is sinful. And the soufflé.....heaven.

Jeffreys is in the Clarksville area of Austin. About 10 minutes from downtown. Charming neighborhood that contributes to the culinary experience.

And reasonably priced!!! Jeffrey’s is not just an exceptional Austin experience, it’s one of our favorites nationwide.

From start to finish the service and experience was superb. Kole and Natalie were wonderful, attentive servers as well as Eric. Our dining experience was reminiscent of a fine dining experience in Manhattan, Miami or even Philadelphia. I cannot wait to come again.

Finally was able to get back to Jeffrey's after they re-opened. Boy, did we miss that food! From the fried oysters/leeks, to the Hamachi carpaccio, to the 60-day dry-aged 37oz. Tomahawk Ribeye from Beeman ranch . . . just exceptional. Topped off with a few 6-year Willett Bourbon Manhattans, then a magnificent Huber Lignier Chambertin. Just exceptional.

Now days I pay attention to how a restaurant handles COVID-19 protocol. In addition to excellent service, food, and wine, I thought Jeffrey's did an exceptional job of one touch menus, hand sanitizer, masks worn by staff, masks required by patrons (!!!), etc.

Well done!

For the price , our experience was underwhelming - in fact , disappointing . We both had steak , which smelled like smoke and was mediocre at best ; in addition , one of the steaks had some unrequested sauce on it when served . The French fries were truly tasteless, and the mushrooms were way too salty .
While service was friendly , it was not as it should be at a restaurant of Jeffrey’s reputation. Two examples : one server forgot one of our glasses of wine and the visits to our table were infrequent enough that we had to pour our own water , the pitcher for which was placed far enough away ( fine if service was consistent ) that we had to reach over the food to reach it ).
All in all , an unsatisfactory experience given the prices at, and reputation of, this establishment .

Our waiter, Colt, and the rest of the staff were outstanding! They made our 20th wedding anniversary a more than memorable event. The crab and avocado toast, and the Niean filet were both to die for.
