    We've been coming to Wink for 13 years, and this was the first time since the pandemic. It did not disappoint. Wonderful food, ambiance, and service. Austin is full of "want to be" restaurants with mediocre food and service. But Wink...it's the real deal...consistently!

    Excellent food; creative and delicious. We both had the 5 course pescatarian tasting menu with wine pairing. Service was great and it was lots of fun. Highly recommend.

    The food is excellent, the service is friendly but professional and attentive. Its hidden location in a small shopping center off the main road masks its superb attention to details and its elegant but understated interior. A small gem and a rare occurrence of a restaurant quietly remaining on top of the Austin scene for over 2 decades.

    Had 5 course Tasting menu. Substituted salad fot sashimi. Wine pairings were excellent. Scallops - I could taste the ocean - best I've ever had. Duck breast was so good! Mushrooms were to die for. Dessert - the lemon part of the trio - perfection. Creme brule as well. Chocolate too rich. Would have liked some fruit. Waitperson forgot I gad given him CC at the beginning in order to pick up the bill, so that was a bit awkward. But will be back.

    100% must-try, deeply moving commitment to culinary excellence and earnest hospitality. My date & I showed up to a strip mall where a laundry place had top-billing, but before we could wonder aloud if we’re in the right place our warm and attentive server Austin asked if we were the 8:45 table. This was in the parking lot. We laughed off the coincidence, but in retrospect it feels like foreshadowing the attention to detail — down to the perfectly-volumed Loretta Lynn Pandora station with a DJ unafraid to thumbs-down & skip any threat to our vibe. I’ll start with the bad news: we were his only table; if this restaurant closes for lack of business, it’s a tragedy of how capitalism cannot sustain humanity’s highest artistic pursuits & a missed opportunity to preserve the purveyor’s of my most treasured dining experiences, the kind where human connection is the centerpiece of your encounter with the other diner(s) and the staff & where every bite makes you feel like you’ve made the right choices. Austin, our server, is a virtuosically-young hospitality expert who clearly studied the finest points of his craft: impassioned/informative wine knowledge calibrated to our baseline targeted at the mechanics of the pairing and precision of their choices, genuine delight in bringing us the high-end but unpretentious bounty of their thoughtful and creative kitchen, and making just the right amount of space to connect with us on a personal level — they’re fortunate to have him. The food was phenomenal; the wine parings, a triumph. We did the 5-course tasting menu for two & they expertly accommodated my capsaicin allergy with delicious uncompromising alternative sauces and garnishes w/o changing the base. Balanced flavors plated beautifully, perfect portions, interesting flavors — bold but not overtly risky. Confidence expressed through attention to detail & not showy barbs; from the amuse to the dessert trio, the envelope felt sealed but never pushed. Sing their praises here!

    The lounge/bar is the coziest and most appealing to our group. I took neighbors who had never been there. They were delighted and thrilled to know it is walkable for them. He's a very good cook, so he was amazed as well
