We sat outside prior to a show at An toneʻs across the street and were impressed not only by the attentiveness of the staff, but how absolutely delicious the food was. Its been hard to find places with any level of quality food and service since COVID and I Have to applaud the management for taking the time to make sure the staff, front and back, delivered a high quality experience.

I ate the biscuits for breakfast and then the leftovers for dinner-addicting! The food was otherwise a 4.5/5 but the app only allows 4 or 5. However, all of the staff all the way up to the chef, was the most hospitable group I have had the pleasure to encounter. It is pricey but everything was worth it. My family thoroughly enjoyed the lobster mac’n cheese. The shrimp and grits were delicious as well but a little greasy due to the chorizo component. I might order it again with less of this. I would definitely go back even if I was not staying at the hotel, especially when I want to superior service.

Loved the crab cake, red fish, biscuits.

Service, possibly as with service everywhere due to staffing challenges, a little spotty. But dang, at least the male staff (yeah—only the guys) could bother to wear masks over their noses.

Oh our frickin’ Most Individualistic American culture. There’s such a thing as sacrifice (“sacrifice”?!) for the Common good? There’s more than one person on the planet? I have a dream! (When it has not devolved into a nightmare.)

We made reservations and we were seated on time. Our waitress was great and knowledgeable of the menu. However, the staff and service didn’t match the food. Long story short, it just wasn’t good. I felt like I was eating from a high school cafeteria, which is terrible considering Austin has some pretty amazing restaurants. To start, biscuits were way… too salty, Beet salad tasted like the beets had been in the fridge a couple days, short rib was an overcooked pot roast (shouldn’t be mooshy, and was ;(), crab cake wasn’t seasoned, and the crab and shrimp roll? Yuck!!! Super fishy and also tasted a couple days in fridge old. Couldn’t finish any of it! Too bad atmosphere and service doesn’t match the food. Online reviews gave it 4.5 stars too! Why? Super misleading.

It's a hotel restaurant... they sat us at a high top in the bar when we had a reservation, so the ambience was a little disappointing in addition to be close the open entrance to the hotel lobby. Food was on par with the price but I would not say that it knocked my socks off. I would recommend this restaurant if you were in the hotel and not wanting to venture out while having a somewhat intimate setting.
