Truffled Deviled Egg
One of the best meals in Austin. My friends said his dinner was amazing also. We definitely will be back.
Wonderful food and impeccable service. We have been dining at Jeffrey's since the early 80s and it has been our #1 place to dine and recommend for Austin's best dining experience!
The BEST SERVICE & FOOD in Austin! WOW!!!
High end service, attention to detail….you name it, it was top notch! Enjoyed the deviled eggs, Caesar salad, ribeye and diver sole. Best quality! Think best service and multiply it by 100. That’s Jeffreys!
Incredible restaurant, super accommodating for my two friends that were vegan and got the vegan version of the risotto. Lobster bisque was delicious! All around great experience!!
Great food. But there are far better options for a special occasion.
We made a reservation for our anniversary about a month in advance. We were seated in the bar area despite reserving a table through OpenTable. Jeffries is small, but the bar area is especially tight. We sat on a round couch about a foot from other guests. It was quite uncomfortable with very little leg room or space to get in and out of your seat. In the bar, most guests are just ordering cocktails. We felt a little odd ordering a full meal, but did so anyway. We could see into the dining room areas and it was clear there were several empty tables for the entirety of our reservation.
The food was very good. But for the money you will spend, there are much better options in Austin that combine great food with the space to consume it in a nice atmosphere. If you do decide to go to Jeffries, don’t reserve online. Call them and make sure they will seat you in the dining room.
Great food and great environment for business dinner.
Except for the rude and condescending hostesses our dinner experience was lovely. Vanessa, our server is always a delight! As many times as we have been here it always amazes me that no one has trained the hostesses to be polite and welcoming. The wine list is incredible and the food was delicious. Would have been a five star except for the hostesses. Even the valet attendant was such a nice guy.
Anthony and staff amazing tonight
Nice to finally have gracious kind servers at Jeffreys
Delicious dinner in a quiet setting. Loved the duck, Dover sole, lobster bisque and Caesar. Popovers yummy, too. Great cocktails and wine.
Service was incredible, and so was our food. It was an incredible anniversary spot. Thank you for the complimentary cava toast and sweet card. We loved it!
Really enjoyed the restaurant. Great ambiance, delicious dover sole and popovers for the bread!
Will definitely go back if in town.
Wonderful evening. Giles provided a wonderful service! Hope to see more vegan options on the menu!
Amazing experience as always! MacKenzie took wonderful care of us on a special Anniversary. I he food was perfect, the ambiance romantic and bubbly and wine recommendations spot on. Our favorite place to splurge and celebrate!!! ♥️
Simply outstanding. We eat at a lot of “rated” restaurants and this plugs into the top 10. Special note is service and the steak. Splurge on the best meat and surround it with the sauce sampler. The whole family was shocked. Great place, super cool ambiance and music and the service was 5 star all the way. Thanks Richard!!
Server made us feel uncomfortable when we asked about the Monday night all day happy hour. She said we were sitting in the wrong spot. The food was average, the steak was over salted. We were pleasantly surprised by the pop overs, which were great. I was kind of confused that our server mentioned a pizza oven when there wasn't pizza on the menu. I wasn't impressed by the service of our captain, however the assist staff were great and very kind. The best part of the restaurant was the décor, the blue room was stunning.
Very happy with Jeffrey’s. 2nd time was just as good! I only wish their California cab selection was more robust, but their collection of French was great.
My wife and I’s experience at Jeffrey’s was phenomenal! We were celebrating for her 30th birthday dinner and had an amazing time. The service was exceptional from start to finish. Our food was delicious and unique and were perfect portions. We plan on coming back to Jeffrey’s in the future. The music at the restaurant was also a pleasant treat and definitely set the mood properly.
Vanessa was amazing! Food was spectacular as always. Highly recommend!
Beautiful dining ambiance coupled with delicious food and really great service!! There is a reason why Jeffrey's is the special occasion go-to restaurant.
Anthony was our waiter and he was so kind and attentive. It was my wife’s birthday and he made it the most special dining experience. We would definitely go back.
After first checking in to bring us water, it took our waiter another 20 minutes to come back to our table to finally take our order. The quality of food has declined as well. Please bring back the old chocolate soufflé. The new one uses caramel alcohol which gives it a bad flavor, why change it from the old recipe? Before I believe it was cream instead.
High recommended for anyone wanting a 6 Star experience
Amazing food, great atmosphere. The truffle deviled eggs are a must.
I have always heard of this place. I was beyond amazed how nice the staff were. They go out their way to make a great experience for you.
From the food to the service to the ambiance, everything was exceptional. I highly recommend for a special occasion.
Still offering the best service in Austin, with food that is consistently delicious, Jeffery's is my go-to for an upscale yet never fussy dining experience. The ambience is cozy and intimate enough for a date, but also feels just right for a party of 6-8.
It is probably the best fine dining experience from central Texas down to Rio Grande Valley. Excellent food and service!! Very nice wine selection!! Highly recommend this restaurant.
Food delicious. Service depends on my children for communication. Need to learn how to communicate with Deaf Adults.
A must for special occasions! Very romantic. Food is phenomenal. Will definitely returning to Austin for Jeffrey’s
Great service and food was outstanding!!!
Every moment courteous and attentive without intrusion. Had a "popover" (my mother called them "Yorkshire puddings." It was as good as my mom's, which is saying something. Appetizers were foie gras (perfect) and my husband a salad (he found anchovies on it but that's on him - he only ate one by mistake and recovered immediately). He had a seafood risotto that was the right texture (smooth but not in the pureed sense; right degree of "toothiness," for lack of a better term) and right taste (not too "fishy"). I had the New York Strip - grilled to order (medium rare to rare) and "pommes puree" (again, like my mom's). Only downside is the overwhelmingly underwhelming dessert array: two different soufflés (ok, that's impressive, if you feel like a scuffle, which I never do), a nondescript flour-less cake (that's so 90s!), and some sort of French pastry dessert that I overheard the waiter describing to another diner as a "kind of cherry aspic." No thank you. Now, my final comment - and this is not criticism - is: would at least one Austin fine dining restaurant please offer an impressive liqueur coffee after-dinner drink? A carajillo would have made this evening beyond perfect (because it was perfect).
The service was impeccable, however a bit of overkill - we were approached by 6 different people several times throughout our dinner to refill, clear items, fold napkins, status of food... it was a bit much and cut into our conversation quite a bit. Other than that, this is a special spot that my husband and I will continue to frequent. Always amazing food!
I've never had a server at a restaurant like this ask me to pass them my plate to clear it. Food arrived with no silverware. Water service was infrequent. Empty glasses, wine bottle and carafe left at the table through dessert. Not worth the money. The wine mark up was off the charts, even for a steakhouse.
Top quality food and service
Honestly this place was fine, but I think that based off the reputation we had higher expectations so that’s why it’s so disappointing. The service was absolutely not on par with other MMH restaurants we’ve been to recently, we sat at our table for almost 30 minutes before our server came to take our order and I had to request popcorn/bread, whereas the table next to us sat down after us and already had their cocktails and appetizers. The overall dining experience took forever, which I normally wouldn’t mind (7:45 reservation, didn’t leave until almost 10:30), but it was due to a lack of our server’s attention. We sat with empty water glasses and plates for long periods of time. My husband ordered his steak medium and it came out absolutely rare - Jeffrey’s did comp this and quickly remade his steak which we really appreciated, but I’m not sure where the miscommunication was and it extended our dinner even more so. It also took them a very long time to come over and check in with us about our meal after serving it, so he sat there for a while with a steak he wasn’t able to eat, again due to lack of server’s attention Overall it’s a really nice restaurant and the food was very good, it could have been an off night for the staff, but we spent our anniversary here and it was a disappointing evening! Would definitely recommend other MMH restaurants over this one.
Jeffreys aspires to be a top shelf steakhouse. They
The tables were so close we could barely fit between them. Otherwise everything was fine.
We enjoyed several dishes and every one of them was excellent! The service was impeccable; attentive, timely, never overbearing. We will go back!
Dinner with long time friends.
