We went to Lambert’s for my dad’s 60th birthday. We had a wonderful time. We ordered the ribeye and it was worth every penny. Was so tender and melted in your mouth. We also loved the crispy boar ribs.
Very nice experience!! We loved the food!! Graet service!
Great food and the perfect ending to our week in Austin.
Take a friend and split an entree as the portions are generous. My husband and I split the crab & fried green tomoato salad, the short rib, Brussels sprouts and macaroni and cheese. We couldn’t finish what we ordered but I’m happy we chose the selection we did because it was SO SO good.
Thanks Brie for your friendly service. You made our evening all the more special!
Lambert’s will be our first stop the next time we’re back in Austin!
The Boar's ribs are absolutely delicious. Definitely worth the trip and we will be going back again! We also got the Cuban sandwich with Mac n cheese which were really good.
Overrated. Make the drive out to Driftwood for Salt Lick for some awesome BBQ! Man and cheese has goose cheese in it. Not good.
Great food and music
The food didn't wow us like we thought it would. Servings are small and pricey. Table service was extremely slow. Our food arrived before bar drinks.
Someone in the kitchen is over salting all the dishes. From the sides to the meat to the deviled eggs. All over salted by a heavy hand in the back of house.
Brisket was dry. Food took 35 minutes at lunch time. Definitely are better alternatives in the area.
Absolutely terrible/horrible service for Saturday brunch. Took 2 hours to get our food after ordering. Waitress was also very inattentive throughout the ENTIRE experience. Coffee was cold... took 20 minutes to get a hot refill. Future refills of coffee took 30 minutes in between each refill. Lambert’s might have the worst service in Austin. We will not be back.
Excellent gourmet BBQ - Yum! Texas BBQ taken to a fancier level!
Great waitress and food is out of this world
Loved it-exactly what we were looking for in Texas BBQ.
One of the best meals ever!
Amazing food consistently!!! Must go for visitors or locals!
Had a reservation on Sunday. I am from out of town and found this place from reading reviews online. Came for the barbecue which was ok. It's like upscale if you call it. Regular barbecue on a square plate which is overpriced. I recommend the brisket. My mix sour drink was blah. If you don't like spicy food don't get the devil eggs or the mac n' cheese. They seated us upstairs in a little two seat table by the stage. Another two seat table was right next to us which made it uncomfortable like no privacy. Another couple got seated there after we got seated and ended up leaving not ordering anything. I didn't think they were comfortable also. I really wanted to love it but I don't think I will be returning next time I am in town.
Tasty bbq place. Boar’s Ribs appetizer was great! Good cocktail menu, too.
Visiting from out of town brisket was good, lean and not dry. The waitress upsold my husband on recommending the 2 most expensive dishes on the menu. He had beef short ribs-wished he had the brisket. There are plenty of other BBQ places in Austin
The smoked trout was tasteless and the jalapeno tomato sauce that accompanied it was overpowering, as were in the olives in the quinoa. Best to stick with the brisket!
Excellent meal and service. Would definitely visit again.
Seems to be good but closed right when we got there. I think is worth to try
The flavors are amazing!
Farm to table foodie BBQ. We had the brisket and pork ribs and these meats were first rate and perfectly prepared. Exceptional. Great sides and salads too - the heirloom carrots and also the fried green tomato dishes were especially good.
Great beer list too.
It’s not cheap but a truly great dining experience. New school but a respectful and inventive refinement on the best Texas meat traditions.
Service was fantastic!
Great spot - will go there again. Amazing food, awesome service, fantastic ambiance.
Excellent meal, their ribeye entree is my new favorite steak in Austin
Great menu. Great service. The ribeye steak with a full head of roasted garlic was over the top. I am still talking about how good it was! Great wine selections. Desert was ridiculous. Shrimp and crab cocktail was like a meal.
The brisket salad was terrible- very dried out, stringy and lettuce was awful. Would never order again.
Fantastic BBQ amazing service wonderful atmosphere definitely a new destination favorite
The best beef brisket I have ever tasted!! Whenever in Austin/a must do!
The food was amazing and our server was charming and attentive.
Food was fantastic and the staff was very friendly!
Rob who was our server was very polished and friendly. He warned that the fried green tomato plate was not very large. It was perfect for lunch. The brisket was the best we have ever had. Rob gave us a list of excellent restaurants in the area. He was just wonderful.
Great experience and great food! Our server was wonderful and all the food arrived quickly.
The food was absolutely amazing. The service was terrible. The waitress acted like she didn't want to be there or maybe isn't a people person. The person that brought our food was rude, we asked for dressing that was not brought to us and she was very sarcastic and seemed like we bothered her.
Very surprised at the way we were treated.
Decent but overly expensive barbecue. Extremely noisy even when it’s not too busy. I always seem to have a problem when I go here. I’ve given this place multiple chances but there is always an issue. Once it was a chef tasting sauce with his finger and then immediately playing food as witnessed through the window of the open kitchen. This time it was parking. Although their website says there is parking at the AMLI across the street, they don’t validate and you end up paying full price.
Great recommendations. Everything was delicious. Not a bit left on our plates!
Much too loud for conversation with friends we had not seen for a while, and service, on a Sunday night, was just very slow, but still, we love the food. We would go more often if we did not have to yell across the table to carry on a conversation with our dinner partners.
