Wonderful venue for a nice dinner out or a special occasion. Restaurant sits adjacent to vineyard and has a great outdoor patio. Bit of a hike from Austin (about 20-30 minutes depending) but worth it.

Restaurant knew in advance of occasion (wedding anniversary) and had prepared a special table in a cozy part of the restaurant. Staff was very attentive. Food was authentic and tasty, wine is all Italian.

Definitely worth a shot.

Not impressed with the food. Cold lasagna and the steak presentation was awful. Steak was ordered Medium, it was set in top of the potatoes... problem was that the blood from the very bland steak basically turned the mash potatoes into a bloody sponge! Asparagus Was not cooked at all. Now dessert, the chocolate cake was a rock! Tasted like it sat there for 2 days. The restaurant itself is very nice.

I have been eating there for years, and generally enjoyed each dinner. On this occasion, I had a 5 pm reservation on the Eve of Valentine's. The restaurant had three other tables occupied at the time. The hostess, who did not acknowledge us until the bartender did, treated us just like a walk-in and sat us right next to the kitchen. I politely asked for another table. She responded that "the restaurant had a lot of reservations." to which I responded, one of which is ours. She did not address my comment or the fact that we wanted a better table, and simply walked off. I wanted to leave, but recognized the look in my girlfriend's eyes. I took a breath and weighed the cost of exiting on principle, the possible argument that may occur, and after driving from New Braunfels in the rain for our Valentine's Dinner, my options were limited. Thankfully, our server, who was very good, saw what happened, took some initiative, and moved us closer to the fireplace after conferring with a manager.
I own a restaurant. I hate seeing things like this. It makes me feel like I am at work and legitimately irritates me. I have noticed this trend in restaurants where the hostess is generally the weakest link in the store, and disconnected from the subtleties associated with her title, or the result of her actions. It colors the entire experience, because she greets the guests upon their arrival, sets the tone for dinner, and then she is the last person one see's as they exit. By the way, she did not say "goodbye" or acknowledge us in any way, as we left. I still enjoyed myself, mainly due to the efforts of my server, some good management and the general culture of that restaurant. I am picky about my Manhattans too, and even enjoyed them. The food was good and the other elements of my service were exactly what I have come to expect from this restaurant; and, precisely what any restaurant owner should demand of their staff and management team.

Lovely restaurant in a winery setting. Good food, service and atmosphere. Bartender was able to identify and provide an aperitif I have had trouble finding in Texas!! Lovely afternoon lunch!

It was a very busy evening. The large table ahead of us took a little longer than they should have so we had to wait a little past our reservation time. We enjoyed ourselves at the bar. Barkeep was knowledgeable and poured some fine drinks. The food was amazing. Best filet I’ve had in a long time. The grilled asparagus was on point. Everyone in our party enjoyed the food except for the vegan. But that’s her issue. We will be back. Without the vegan if we have to.
