Located on the storied architectural landmark, Commodore Perry Estate, the restaurant's name is a nod to the estate matriarch Nannie Lewette “Lutie” Perry.  The experience melds warm hospitality with the convivial spirit of the property’s Jazz Age legacy, transporting guests to a contemporary garden retreat overlooking lush estate grounds.

    Half of the dishes we ordered were good. They forgot to bring out one of our appetizers and took a long time to get our drinks. It was a monday night and not busy in there either.

    The Commodore Estate is absolutely exquisite and Lutie's is definitely one of the more beautiful restaurants in ATX. The pictures online capture the beauty of the inside, but the outside patio with the view of the manicured English garden is divine. Reservations are very hard to get and after finally dining here, I saw first hand why. The restaurant is small and cozy with very limited seating and as a result, parties over 4 are very limited and subject to a prix fixe menu. I suggest getting online and booking ASAP for a prime day and time slot. For our party of 4, we started with a few delicious craft cocktails called The Night Shift. Our waiter Richard was lovely, helped us decide on our main courses and perfectly paired and coursed our meal. Our first pairing consisted of the bluefin tuna and chickpea and green corn. Both were delicious. Followed by the beets, estate bread and halibut. The beets were good, but the estate bread and halibut were both life changing! We were encouraged to dip some of our bread in the butter sauce that surrounded the halibut and the table became silent. The grilled camembert was a perfect segue to dessert and it too was delicious. For dessert we chose the kouign amann ice cream and that night they introduced a new dessert, a lemon chiffon that was divine! The service, the atmosphere and the food were all exceptional!

    Lovely decor. Food is quite good. We made our decision and ordered. Our server then tried to recommend we change our order or add at least add more dishes to it. We stood firm on what we wanted. The 4 dishes we ordered were exactly what we wanted and the amount we wanted. I appreciate recommendations. But please don’t try to tell me what to order after I have made my decision.

    This place is exquisite -- absolutely. Located directly across the street from a Goodyear Tire and Jo's Coffee (with its garish red sphere on the roof,) you would never guess that this gem of an oasis is nestled right off of Red River in Hyde Park. Hanging from the ceiling of the dining room are Chihuly-style chandeliers and an entire canopy of hanging plants. The restaurant is part of a 10-acre private garden in the heart of the city. We had a salad of greens with a cilantro-jalapeño vinaigrette and a massive house-made English muffin that was served piping hot with a layered slab of brown butters. The Chickpea and Green Corn Salad was loaded with fresh herbs, sesame seeds, and a delicious dressing to bind it all together. The green corn added incredible textural dynamics with its corn-nut crunch. The Grilled and Marinated Beets beets were like nothing I had ever quite experienced. Brussels sprouts and beets are a dining stable for me. I order one or both of them from almost every menu that I encounter. But I've never once come across a beet with a confit treatment; I thought that confit was reserved exclusively for duck! The result is a texture like no other. It's almost reminiscent of a dehydrated fruit leather. Smothered in a black garlic reduction and fresh dill, Executive Chef Bradley Nicholson has outdone himself here. Raving on and on about texture here might seem unusual but the mouthfeel of both the Chickpea Salad and the Beets was so utterly refreshing, diverse, and satisfying. We concluded the evening with a Chai SoftServe Affogato which was a delightful final act before taking an evening stroll through the garden.

    The ambiance and food are amazing. Plants everywhere, modern yet vintage vibes. It’s shareable plates but we were stuffed after the recommended 4/5 plates for two people. We started with the scallops, bread, and garden salad. All delicious but the bread needs to be called out. Omg. I would have that every day. We also ordered the ham and butter beans and the ribeye. Both to die for. We ended with the chai tea soft serve with espresso poured on top. What a treat! Would come back.

    Truly excellent cuisine. Probably the best in austin. Would compete at the top level in New York. The major miss in an otherwise beautiful ambience is terrible lighting. The color temp of the lighting would be good in an operating room but it’s truly, noticeably, bad in a dimly lit restaurant. A change of all the bulbs to much warmer color temp would transform the ambience.

    We did the New Year’s Eve prefix. The food was good, except for the green dish. The green dish is a bowl with greens on top of cold hard squash with a green onion emulsion. I’ve heard other reviewers complain about this dish. IMO, it’s just not good. The service was spotty - we waited 40 minutes between the fish and meat dish. Not sure what happened but it was too long to wait. Dessert was awesome, but the tart was cut in half. I didn’t understand that. Either give me the whole thing or make a smaller one. A little tart cut in half makes me feel cheated. The pastry chef at Luties is on another level!! She is a phenomenal pastry chef. Wish more of her items had been showcased. She is a superstar. I’d go back. I wouldn’t do another prefix without seeing the dishes in advance.
