Great drinks and the food was delicious. The Bloody Mary’s are extra special as are the Potato Chorizo Tacos! Outdoor patio is chill. Our server had his hands full, with the entire patio, but he was working his butt off and our service was still excellent!
The food was delicious, high quality, excellently prepared. We ordered too many dishes because we had read in reviews the portions were small. Well the portions are not small and the perfect size for a person. The service was excellent, Lauren was our server and she was amazing! Highly recommend this place!
Love the Ambiance and decor of the restaurant. It wasn’t too crowded. The servers were very attentive. The wine was great. My husband loved the flat iron steak. It was really tender. We had a great experience for our anniversary.
My daughter and I took a quick trip to Austin, stayed downtown, and stumbled upon this restaurant. We were NOT disappointed ... everything was fabulous!
Very tasteless, over salted food. I have heard this place used to be Stellar!!! But no more.
Overall good experience. Unfortunately severely understaffed at the time. There was one waitress running the show at the bar and taking all orders. We didn’t receive menus until 30 minutes after sitting down. Otherwise waitress was fantastic and food portions were fair and moderately priced. Would come again; hopefully with more support staff next time.
i love my waiter tyler
Really great! Great food, great service. Thanks to all of those working on the front line. Our waiter was super nice.
Its a good place if you need to hold a lot of people at dinner but the food was NOT good. Pork chop was barely cooked. The mash was like baby food and too expensive in the end for what you get. Cool environment but not for the price. Very limited menu.
Great food and great service! Perfect for date night!
The service was phenomenal and the food was made to order and extremely tasty!
One of my favorite brunch places!!! The avocado toast and deviled eggs are my go to but I’ve tasted the pancakes, tacos, and chicken and waffles which are all DELICIOUS.
My server male blonde glasses was the best
Great good, great service
WONDERFUL SERVICE, GREAT DRINKS, amazing atmosphere! Management has is figured out... most hotel bars usually let me down with overpriced drinks and okay service... not the case here. 10/10 would recommend for date night, parents dinner, GNO, happy hour or just stopping in for a quick bite. You won’t be disappointed.
Very nice place, great wait staff, friendly and personable.

We had an amazing Valentine Day special Chateaubriand au Jus with amazingly tender and perfectly cooked tenderloin. Service was exceptional and the Special Old Fashioned was OK not any better than a regular Old Fashioned but we had a perfect hot tottie with Jameson.
We’re visiting from CA and were amazed by everything! The staff was amazing and super friendly. We ordered the avocado toast, chicken and waffles and had a mimosa carafe. Food was delicious, I strongly recommend it.
The service was amazing, the food was great, and I had a good time!
The food and service were excellent! You have to try the biscuits with honey!
This restaurant is in a hotel. My husband does not like eating in hotels, so he was unhappy with this choice. The food was good but the menu choices were rather limited. Also we sat outside for health reasons, but unfortunately in downtown Austin there is a lot of construction, and also homeless people who approach you while you are eating.
The restaurant was empty. Our reservation was at 7:00, but that’s not all that early anymore since most places close at 9/10. Was “seat yourself” service in the bar area only, which was mostly high-tops. We did get one of two low tops. Biggest disappointment was very limited menu. Only three starters, which was disappointing as I’d probably prefer to share a few small plates. The Mains were limited also. I ordered the short rib and it was quite tasty. We had the Brussels sprouts starter. My date had the steak frites and asked if she could sub a veggie for the fries. The options were limited to sweet potato purée, or sautéed zucchini. The food was well prepared and tasted great. So biggest issue I guess was “dead restaurant” (must be a reason? Thursday night.). And very limited menu. Maybe it’s just covid?
This was a date night dinner. The food, service and value were great! It was not the most romantic of places but it was very clean and friendly. We both had steak frites and it was delicious. Often times the steak is a little bit tough but not here. There was nice char on the outside but the interior was medium as we ordered. Huge amount of frites, more than I could finish but my husband took care of some of that. We enjoyed ourselves and would be happy to go there again.
Nice ambiance. Wait staff was very professional. Would like to see a few more low carb items on the menu.
Delicious food and great staff! Chicken and waffles were the best I have ever had! ❤️
Went for weekend brunch. Deviled eggs were great. Menu price points are a high for food quality. Definitely the pricey for the overhead. Overall good place for occasion or meet up with friends.
ordered the biscuits, steak frites, and red fish! service was excellent and food was great!
Everything was fine. Burger was a salty. Deviled eggs saved the meal. So good. Service was just fine. Ambiance is okay; great for work or a quiet meal. Menu is a bit small but there are great options. Choose wisely.
It was amazing overall!! I’ve been for dinner and brunch and was so happy both times
Hi hannahw, Thank you so much for dining with us and for taking the time to leave a great review! We're happy that you enjoyed your recent visit. Come back and see us again soon. We'd love to have you! Cheers, Ben
Good food, nice ambiance. Unfortunately it was a cold night and the climate in the restaurant was super cold. Although we asked the wait staff several times to please consider turning on the heat (we could feel the AC vents blowing cool air) we were told "unfortunately it's not an easy process to adjust the climate control" What????
Nevertheless it was so cold we were forced to eat with our coats on. We also noticed the majority of the restaurant patrons were also wearing their coats as well. Try dining while wearing a heavy coat...it's not a pleasant experience.

Came for Christmas day brunch, no special menu; ordered from their breakfast/brunch menu which was fine for us. We enjoyed the chicken and waffles and the American breakfast. Lots of customers enjoying brunch after opening presents or strolling a quiet Downtown.

Come back and see us again soon! We'd love to have you. Cheers, Ben
Great experience overall and they were very accommodating for our pup as well. However, beyond the deliciousness and supreme presentation of their signature dinner plate (short rib), I must say that I appreciate their wine and bar pricing. It is refreshing to not see a venue up-charging 300% or more for wine and spirits. We are usually not a “bottle table” but when they are happy to offer a $50 bottle of wine for $75, that deserves patronage. Also, high end bourbons pours for just a little more than what your local liquor store scalper is charging... pretty epic when served by great hosts in downtown Austin.

We had a friend stay at the hotel and et up for brunch. It was over priced brunch as expected. The overall food was great. Bummed they so of their signature food items like the Blue Berry French Toast and their Stellquillas.

We'd love to have you! Happy holidays, Ben
This place is known for their biscuits. Well worth it.
Hi Shushka, Thank you so much for dining with us and for taking the time to share your feedback! Glad to hear that you enjoyed the biscuits. It took Chef 16 attempts to get the recipe just right, which is where they get their name. Come back and see us again soon! We'd love to have you. Happy holidays, Ben
We did Thanksgiving dinner there and it was beautifully executed. Excellent service and food!
Hi AFMom8, Thank you so much for joining us for Thanksgiving and for taking the time to share your experience. I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit. Come back and see us again soon. We'd love to have you! Happy holidays, Ben
