I would only recommend P6 for drinks and a light meal before some other activity -- and only for the benefit of the view you are afforded. The acoustics in the indoor section is so bad, you can not hear the person next to you. I'd only ever choose to sit outside. Drinks were great; food was acceptable.
I did the reservation 2 weeks in advance and I was in a table under the sun and w/o fan for everybory in July .
The overall experience was good because of the ambiance and delicious cocktails. We walked in with a reservation but they said room inside (which we reserved) was limited but we could fit on the end of a large community table - despite having had a reservation. We opted to wait outside for a bit until another table opened inside, and waited 20 minutes before the hostess obtained our server to provide menus. The food was delicious but our crew was definitely still hungry despite ordering quite a bit of food, despite knowing it would be tapas style. The three person cheese plate included two cheeses that were very hard to cut and therefore made for entertaining bonding for the party. As a whole, we will be back and I would recommend P6 to friends for the view and cocktails, but recommend pre-eating first.
Note this place has a very limited food menu - this would be good for a post-work drink + appetizer, but keep looking if you want a more robust/varied food offering.
The views are amazing. I wouldn't count on seeing bats, since certain times of year the lighting isn't right. The bats fly out at the opposite side of the bridge, so you definitely can't see them in the month of July. I hear August is better. No matter what, you do get great sunset and panoramic views. The octopus is amazing. It is VERY hot outside. Not all tables and seating areas had fans and we were one of those left out. They need to buy more fans or install ceiling fans or misters. It's a cozy patio, but definitely need more cooling solutions.
Staff was nice but seemed very disorganized. In other words- “did not seem to have their sh** together”. My group was asked about my reservation name three times, even after seated. The wait staff did not notice that all plates we ordered were already on the table and kept apologizing for the delay on the dish that we were eating. Food, drinks and ambience were all very good.- but the staff was just awkward and made a good topic of discussion for my group. This rating may be a little bias because it was a special occasion and I had high hopes for a very grand and beautiful evening but it did get overshadowed by the service and slightly long wait times.
We had a fabulous time at P6. The staff are amazing and responsive. The view is outstanding.
I had high hopes for this place but was disappointed. Menu was extremely limiting and we felt like there was nothing we really wanted to order. For a place that sells small plates, they barely fit on our tiny table. The atmosphere turned super clubby. Not a classy place. Definitely will not recommend this to friends. But, the wait staff were phenomenal.
Limited food menu
I made a reservation for outside but once I got there they told me that the system automatically chose inside. I couldn't sit outside because it was either all taken or because the tables were for four people but I only had three people. But the table they placed me inside was for four people. Was disappointed that each time I go to P6 I was told to make a reservation for the outside tables so I did a week ahead of time and I still was placed inside.

I know you planned ahead to sit outside on the patio and I'm truly sorry that we fell short of delivering on that expectation. I would love to invite you back to visit us again and would like to personally assist with your reservation. Thank you. Best Brett Anderson Assistant Dir of F&B The LINE Atx
The atmosphere was loud and uncomfortable. The food selection was incredibly limited. We ordered the cheese tray. The cheese was ok but portions were slight. No bread was offered but merely dry, hard to eat crackers; we weren’t even given a cheese knife. The price for what was provided was way out of proportion.
Hello ElizabethH, Thank you for the constructive feedback. We are always looking for ways to improve on our selections. While P6 is primarily a cocktail lounge, we want all of our guests to be able to find something exciting and delicious in our food offerings. I will be sure to share your comments about the pan caracau bread with the chef to ensure that the quality is to our high standard. Thank you and hope to see you back again soon.

Loved the view and ambience. Service was ok, but we came close to closing and it felt like we were being a nuisance to our waitress. We wanted to be able to see the bats, but they closed down before the sun set, unfortunately. The drinks were pricey- our bill was over 70$ for 5 drinks (only one was a cocktail, the other 4 were wine). But, I understand, we paid for the view. Certainly a cool place!! The food looked good, but we didn’t have any.

Try the Confit garbanzo dip with House made crackers. Delicious! Good cocktail offerings. Sit outside if possible. Lovely view of lake. We didn’t like our original table, it was in a area with full sun. Hostess made sure we were happy and seated us at a better table. Great service.
Hi FoodieX4, Thank you for the great feedback and glowing recommendations. We hope to see you back in P6 soon! Best, Brett Anderson Assistant Director of Food & Beverage, The Line Austin
We had a great time overall. Wish we would have been sat on the side that overlooks Lady Bird Lake.
P6 is well located and has very nice views of Town Lake. The service by Kay was professional. Phoebe was a big help with getting my party the correct table for the evening. Tasty food. The cocktails were average tho my colleagues enjoyed their beers and chitchatting. I like the casual Cali-like seating.
Hi Anonymous, Thank you for the great feedback. We hope to see you back in P6 soon! Best, Brett Anderson Assistant Director of Food & Beverage, The Line Austin
Great views and accommodations. Awesome
People watching for the post brunch crowds and weddings!
View was amazing and the atomsphere is great! The hostesses were very sweet and accommodating. Our waitress, on the other hand, was extremely unattentive and didn't even say thank you, goodbye, or anything for that matter, when handing us our bill back after we were finally able to grab her attention for our check.

The cheese board for 3 was small, but good. The charcuterie board for 5 was too small for 5 and the meat was very greasy as was the flat bread. Our group did not care for it. The service was scarce, had to wait a while for our check.
The location is wonderful right on the lake. The drinks were very good and they have a decent but limited food menu. Service was not great, good along time for the waitress to take the order and then to bring the drinks. Staff didn’t seem to care much about service and some looked grumpy. Not a real Austin vibe.

Rest assured I will be following up personally to ensure that is the case in P6. We hope to see you again in the near future. Brett Anderson Assistant Director of Food & Beverage, The LINE Austin
Great location on Lady Bird Lake near the Congress Bridge (Bats channel). Prices are high, but you are paying for the view. Great drinks and tapas - loved the Lemoncello cake.
Hi MamaOwl, Thank you for the great feedback. We hope to see you back in P6 soon! Best, Brett Anderson Assistant Director of Food & Beverage, The Line Austin
Love the atmosphere of P6. Perfect for sipping cocktails on a hot summer day. We had the Tuba crudo and Roasted beets - both dishes were phenomenal. We will definitely come back
Hi TinaM, Thank you for the great feedback and glowing recommendations. We hope to see you back in P6 soon! Best, Brett Anderson Assistant Director of Food & Beverage, The Line Austin
Food was good, drinks were good, setting is great. Needs more fans for outdoor seating and the service was very slow. Love the ambiance but it needs some improvements
Super fun place. Love the ambiance. We just had dessert and drinks. Very limited dessert menu too.
Hi Truemese, Thank you for the great feedback. We hope to see you back in P6 soon! Best, Brett Anderson Assistant Director of Food & Beverage, The Line Austin
It was a great time but i expected there to be more food and comfier seats. it was a great time but was hot and didn’t love my specific location where we sat but it was a nice time generally.
Hi KelleyC, Thank you for the great feedback. We are actively working on adding pieces to make our outdoor patio more comfortable in the summer weather. We hope to see you back in P6 soon! Best, Brett Anderson Assistant Director of Food & Beverage, The Line Austin
Arrived for reservation at 730 not realizing they close at 8. Hostess said they just called last call and we have 5 minutes to order. Turned out to not be entirely true as the server got us another round closer to 8. Drinks were great and the tuna crudo was pretty good. Waited around for bats until 8:45 but didn’t see any. Was really cool to see so many people line up for them. Definitely will return at some point for a good view of the bats, but with lower expectations next time :)
Our server was pretty poor. She never checked on us and when she did she was totally disinterested. We were meeting on business with a client so the whole experience was very awkward for us and our client.
The hosts on the other hand were very nice and helpful.

Not all resv seats have the view. Our table was on the side with view of hotel HVAC system. Not exclusive at all - we had resv week in advance but anyone can go up - no resv needed. Many guests w/o resv were allowed up then stood at rail so had better view than those w/resv. They even blocked view of those seated. Also no dress code - wet bathing suits, bath towels, bare feet, ... Service not Austin friendly. Brought out of town guests. Big disappointment. Won’t be back.

We hope to see you again soon -Brett Anderson Assistant F&B Director
Absolutely beautiful views. Very laid back atmosphere and great service. The cocktails are amazing! We didn’t try any food because the options were not that appealing. Would definitely go back!!!
Could be a great spot to watch the bats if they focused on the customer. However it seemed like all the staff were more concerned with shoeing everyone out so they could go home (before the bats went home). Plus $12 for a horrible bottle of beer that I only took one sip of.
Hello BrianH, I'm very sorry to hear about the poor experience during your last visit to P6 and thank you for taking the time to share you valuable feedback. I'm sorry you felt your experience was cut short and didn't find value in what you ordered. I hope you will give us another chance and come back to experience the level of service and hospitality we pride ourselves in at P6 and at The Line hotel.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Mason worked with us to get the right table set up and the wait staff were very friendly and offered great suggestions. It was my 2nd time there and I would love to go back. It is a great use of the space and the view is fabulous.
I didn't have any food which is why i gave it 3 stars
I've been here 3 times since it opened, this was by far the worst. We had a child size portion of cheese and meet for an exorbitant cost. The service was okay, minus being upcharged $4 for a margarita...Honestly this place is destined to become a touristy, mediocre, cheesy place.
Wasn’t as amazing as I wanted it to be. Popular place for groups of girls it seems. Food and drinks were okay not amazing.
Everywhere you look is beauty, the food the furnishings the plants the pink prayer flags the drinks the lake! the city and for sure people. Can't wait to go back.
Is that plywood on the ceiling?
Overall the place is a great spot to hang out. Great view of the lake and great for people watching. Really cool vibe. The drinks are overpriced but good and the food is okay not spectacular. It is part of the hotel so you are paying hotel prices for the food and drink. Service is friendly.
Nice ambiance, lovely view of the lake and the Congress St. bridge. Food was tasty but I wish there were a few more options to fill you up a bit while you have a drink. Tables for 2 are not in the best location, tables for 3-4 or more were nicer.
The server was very pushy and kept interrupting every 10 mins. I think its important to let people enjoy their drinks/ food and understand when to interrupt.
Absolute fave spot!!!! I take everyone here and would come every weekend!
Such a beautiful space and view of Lady Bird Lake, but such a disappointing experience. It was sparsely occupied, but when you tried to make a reservation online, it was booked until 8:45 p.m., and we had no idea why since it was mostly vacant. Maybe it was the bad weather, but other downtown spots we went to before and after were hopping! Also the music was too loud to carry on a conversation without yelling, a cocktail waitstaff didn't know the menu and acted annoyed when I asked a question about a drink, and several great spots on the south side were open, but we had to ask to be relocated since our spot on the west side had no view. P6 came off pretentious, totally not Austin. I hope they improve since I'd love to give them another chance.
