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.

Waiters as wonderful as the steak. This is a real dining experience. We received just as much courtesy and service with our split meal as the guy at the next table who paid for two huge plates with a $1,000 bill. And loved how quiet it is!

The hamachi was amazing, light bright and delicious. Oysters were perfectly cooked. We ordered the seafood risotto and the 8oz Wagyu beef tenderloin. The risotto was flavorful and not lacking a variety of tasty seafood and the tenderloin was perfectly cooked and flavorful. The staff were attentive, friendly, knowledgeable and well mannered. We had a wonderful evening and really enjoyed the atmosphere of Jeffrey's. Thanks for a 5 star meal and memorable night!

Great food and drinks and service. Ambience was tricky. Recommendation is try to plan seating with the restaurant based on your plan for the evening. Our plan was romantic evening for two, but we were seated in one of the really small side rooms with a larger group who had a casual, heavy drinking party night in mind. Not the best alignment.

I have enjoyed Jeffrey’s for over twelve years now and never once been underwhelmed. From the bar to the dining room to the private dining suite... Not an inexpensive night but they just hit on all cylinders so it is just worth it. Table 58 is amazing for two and our Captain, James was informative, professional and friendly. As Mr. Ferris Beuller says “if you have the means, I highly recommend it...”.

Fantastically old school vibe with a lot of history, but a menu and attitude that's completely up to date. Interesting options on the menu, everything we ate was delicious.

Great place! Would be hard to beat the quality of service, food, and ambiance. Eric, our waiter, was superb. Made online reservation and mentioned we were celebrating a birthday and would be attending a performance at the Bass Concert Hall after dinner. Restaurant confirmed reservation day prior and suggested arriving a bit earlier for dinner to accommodate our time schedule. Impressive attention to detail. On our table was a nice card acknowledging the birthday. Parking is very limited, but the restaurant offers valet parking and is very efficient.

I took my boyfriend to Jeffrey's to celebrate his promotion. I had heard great things about their happy hour, but wanted to try dinner. I told the restaurant what we were celebrating ahead of time and they went out of their way to accommodate us and help celebrate the occasion. The service was incredible and the food is some of the best in Austin - which is saying a lot. We had a romantic table tucked in the corner and it was an all around great night - exceeded my expectations!
