    It’s in a very nice hotel, decoration very interesting. All was great, recommend the fried green tomatoes appetizer. Avocado toast could use a lot more avocado. Great experience all around.

    We had a great brunch on Saturday before the UT game. The Zaza Benny was a great twist with the crab cakes instead of English muffins. The Bloody Mary with fresh jalapeños had just enough spice. The service was great!

    We came here to celebrate a birthday and had a great time. The service, food, and ambience is great and can’t beat the free valet parking. Very cool hotel and pool area makes for a great and unique restaurant experience. Our only suggestion is for the live music to lower the volume. We came to eat and talk, not to listen to a concert. We’ll be back!

    Went on a Friday night for appetizers, drinks, and dinner. They awkwardly remind you that your reservation has a time limit of two hours. Service was good, meal was paced ok. Our appetizers came before our drinks. Everything tasted delicious though and we will definitely be back to enjoy this unique venue.

    Good Restautant, it is our their time, but we were seated by the bar, against a low wall that covers you until the head in a booth and we could not see the window with the greenery, felt very claustrophobic. Why a wall cross the restaurant? strange.... If you go make sure you are not seated by the bar in the booths. the rest of the decoration is pretty, good is good.

    I reserved Group Therapy two months in advance and was surprised to be sitting outside by the pool. Although the server seemed reluctant to move our table in doors, we were sat a great table. The ambiance was wonderful with mood lighting and low noise level. The food was fantastic ! The fried chicken left for a bit more flavor but otherwise was yummy.

    A friend and I had brunch to celebrate an event at Group Therapy. We chose it partly because their coffee is great and they have a create-your-own-omelette section on the brunch menu. Obviously we both had omelettes, cooked as scrambles by request. The portion size was perfect, and they were plated very nicely. And as expected, the lattes were wonderful. The omelettes were served with crunchy breakfast potatoes and toast. I normally don’t like breakfast potatoes but these were a crunchy simple version which I enjoyed.

    We dined outside at sunset, and the ambiance was great. The lamb lollipops were amazing and the calamari was good, but not crispy. We had the fried chicken dinner and brisket burger for entrees - both were delicious! The chocolate brownie and bread pudding were the perfect finishing touch. Don’t skip the spicy margarita or the apricot mule!

    Group Therapy had been on my List of Austin spots to try. We went for brunch last Saturday. I’m sorry to say that I was hugely disappointed! While the hotel ZaZa is cool, chic, and a definite must see, the restaurant, Group Therapy is okay at best. To say the service was Abysmal is an understatement! When we arrived for our reservation, there was no one at the hostess station, we waited at least five minutes before we had to search for someone to seat us. Once we were eventually seated, we were never brought silverware, or water. It took forever for a server to approach us even though the restaurant was more than half empty. The food was good, no complaints there, but it was cold by the time we waited for silverware, napkins, and condiments. The same for the coffee, it was served without milk or cream at the table and by the time that was brought out, the coffee was cold. And, finally, when we tried to find our server to pay the check, that took forever too! I wanted so badly to like this restaurant but, I must say, they made it impossible!

    My husband and I had dinner prior to a concert at 3Ten. After reading reviews I was apprehensive about the service. We were both delighted with the unique upscale atmosphere, the exceptional service from Dejas and the fantastic food! Ww enjoyed the ahi tuna appetizer, buttermilk chicken and redfish entrees and key lime pie. Will definitely be back!! Thx DEJAS for your recommendations and excellent customer service!

    Service (Carlos) was great! He was very kind and made great suggestions. One of my cocktails was $22 and the other was $18. When cocktails cost as much as an entree they should pack a punch. The drinks were good but not worth the cost. The calamari appetizer was soft, not crunchy, the Brussels appetizer was overly charred. The lamb chop appetizer was excellent. The poke bowl was just ok. The tuna didn’t seem overly fresh like I’m used to and the rice certainly wasn’t sticky. Vibe was good, decor was fun and city view was nice. I’ll go again when someone else is paying.

    I have lived in Austin a little over a year now. I try to get out and about, seeing new places to drink and eat weekly. This was by far the worst service I have experienced to date. We were seated and nobody checked on us after that for almost a half hour. When someone finally did come, everything we asked or ordered came off as an absolute burden for the waiter/waitress to write down or answer. Each drink came with about a 20 minute gap or longer and when they were delivered it was with an uncalled for rudeness. I'm not sure if the few people working had a bad day or what, but it was honestly bizarre. Understaffed and not worth the money

    Didn’t get our order taken for 40 minutes, water wasn’t refilled until we asked, food came out over an hour after we arrived and was cold and mediocre. Way overpriced for the quality and service. The place is beautiful but there are a LOT of kinks to work out. Will not be returning.

    We had a lovely time! We asked to be moved because it was so loud on the floor, so they did put us in the ‘library’ which was a little better. The food and service was great. It was slightly more casual than we expected, but still good. The drinks were also good and the bar tender made me the best Aperol Spritz since Italy!
