Service and food was amazing. The manager came by very briefly to pour wine but was oddly cold and brief. Otherwise, our waiter, Austin could not have been sweeter and the special bday dessert w my boyfriend’s name was a lovely touch. Great spot!
Awesome food and staff made our anniversary unique thanks
Gurls night out friends from Mexico in town
Best burger in town! Great service! Would recommend!
My sister and I drove down from Houston to take my daughter ( a UT senior) out to a special lunch. We were driving back immediately. So naturally a lot depended on the lunch making a total of 6 hours of driving worthwhile. IT was most certainly not. Everything we had was tasteless - starting with a too garlicky pistachio dip, a greasy cornbread (which was the best of the things we had) and overbreaded fish tacos. Less hype about foraging and hunting in the promotional literature and more attention to taste would have helped.
Howver, The desert was prettily presented and tasty enough and the service was attentive.
Great location and atmosphere for a business lunch. A bonus that the food was delicious as well.
Didn’t eat much, but the food we had was fairly bland - short rib specifically.
Food and service were outstanding! Will definitely return.
The common thread in the group was the food was just "ok" for the price. When you are paying more, you expect exceptional....
Great Service and Food
Went to Trace for Easter and it was great! All the dishes were loved by everyone and the service (Promethius was our waiter) perfect. Our first time to Trace and would go back again. I also have a nut allergy and they accommodated me without hesitating.
The food was incredibly disappointing. The short rib was dry and cold, the bass did not taste fresh and the portion of sides/vegetables was minuscule and gross. The server and manager both tried to make things right and could not have been nicer, but we won’t eat there again.
Another nice brunch at Trace with family and our daughter's friend from college. (Our daughter wanted a nice Austin hot-spot for brunch and we chose Trace.) Good mimosas and a nice mix of food. The french toast was excellent as was the spinach salad. Migas were great too.
Such good food but some of the worst service in Austin.
prometheus is fantastic.
Delicious meal with great friends, exceptional drinks, and fabulous service
We had brunch and sat outside. The food quality is excellent as is the service. Background music (ACL around the corner) is noticeable, but not overpowering.
We went to see The Mavericks at ACL next door, so Trace kicked off our amazing night. Our DrinkyPoos , food and service were fabulous
Great happy hour. Excellent service and food. Love the patio.
We like going here. It is easy never too loud, and considering the location and quality the price is really a very good value.
I went to brunch and it was so much fun, the food was great, the service was great i loved it!
Great place - really enjoyed the charcuterie / cheese board!
The octopus was spectacular! Creative twists on seafood.
Not my favorite.
Everything about Trace was great, but maybe reconsider if you have a party larger than 4. We had 8 and our check was not divided by who ordered what (nor were we asked at the beginning how we wanted to pay). I have to assume that this is policy, because our wait staff was excellent. Kind and attentive.
So, the last 30 minutes of the meal were us writing in pen on the back of the receipt what we all ordered. However, everything else about the experience was great.
So, Trace, please. Help people divide the check up before/during the meal.
Have brunched and dined several times at Trace in the past and have enjoyed the experience. However, on this occasion, Valentine's Day dinner, the fixed price dinner selections (table for six) were generally subpar.
Our Valentines dinner was amazing! The steak and the desserts were the stars of the show! Definitely glad we picked Trace to celebrate valentines at.
Was not that empresses with the restaurant, service was disappointing, especially not having a coat hanger when it was raining and freezing cold outside I was wearing a big fur coat and had no where to put it. Disappointing and unacceptable for the W hotel!
Food was very good and perfect temperature. Server wasn’t all that professional-rolled her eyes at me at least once (I don’t think I’m a bad patron). When she delivered the check, she was all smiles. Maybe she was just not having a good day. I will definitely return.
Always great, Hilary has set a great standard of awesomeness. Absolutely love the entire staff but Katie and Della is our ultimate fave
There was a live DJ and the atmosphere was kicking. Lots of energy and fun
Sunday Brunch is just out of the world. Loved the DJ. Great ambience.
Fantastic meal and Service! Spare ribs were superb. Never had a bad or mediocre meal at Trace
Phenomenal dining experience. Every menu item seemed to have been reinvented from the ground up -- both creative and delicious. Looking forward to going back!
We went for brunch, number one they’ve taken their best items like the shrimp and grits and the quail and waffles off the brunch menu. The waiter we had was horrible. He had a smart mouth and he just wasn’t hospitable. And when I didn’t leave a tip he came back and asked why I stiffed him his tip and he said it was rude. So Trace is definitely off our brunch list and we go to brunch every Sunday after church. We are know as the Brunch Crew. We post and give reviews on Facebook and Instagram.
The menu lacked healthy options and vegetarian options. The Duck Chilaquiles sounded wonderful but was, in reality, nacho chips with a few pieces of duck and one egg. Staff were wonderful in accommodating changes etc, but menu needs an update.
Service was great as usual, as was the coffee and mimosa's. Most of the small plates were good, except for the Boston Cream French Toast, which leaked frying oil every time you cut into it. The last time we dined at Trace, I don't remember this being an issue. I love the energy at this restaurant, but the music was a little loud this time. It was occasionally difficult to hear the person sitting next to you.
Great food and nice staff. Good for out of town guests. Great prior to ACL show. ACL theatre is next door.
Very nice lunch special.
Everything was great except dessert. Waiter didn’t seem to care that we didn’t like the dessert. But otherwise everything was great!
