I’ve been to the Salty Sow and love it every time. Their charcuterie board is the best so we order it every time. We’ve ordered food tapas style and have ordered entrees. We’ve never been let down!
They have great cocktails and a reasonably priced wine list.

Went for a business dinner. Made reservations and was seated outside in their covered patio right away. Took a little while for the waitress to get there but besides that great food, drinks and atmosphere. I would definetly go back.

I love your restaurant and sadly I had a pretty unimpressive experience tonight.
We ordered drinks and appetizers and our drinks came. Then we ordered tacos. Our tacos came and one was the wrong taco and without egg. My husband had asked to make sure the egg was well cooked and when the waitress brought them she brought the wrong taco and said that it didn’t have egg because they couldn’t cook them fully (that’s dumb)... only the barely fried eggs. (She should have told us this before so he could have ordered something else.) So here my husband has his wrong taco with no egg. We wait for our appetizers and other drinks. More drinks arrive and no appetizer. Finally we get the check and still no appetizer. Pretty disappointing experience. :(

I was really early for my reservation but they were able to seat us on the patio w no wait. Food and drinks were delicious. Highly recommend ordering all of the veggie dishes to share for the table. Cocktails are fantastic. Great place to show off locally sourced Austin food to out of town guests.

We were dining early in order to get to a concert; our waiter was very helpful in getting our orders out promptly and correctly. Most of us ordered from the Happy Hour menu, which is an amazing bargain - really tasty food (a large portions) for very little money. Good cocktails, too. Music on low so we were able to converse, a plus.

Everything we ate was amazing, 3 apps, 4 dinners and 2 deserts. We shared and nothing was a miss!! The food came out promptly but service was a little slow/ my cocktail went dry/they could have sold me another cocktail or 2 for sure. It is fairly loud but a good energy.

My mother loved it. She was visiting from out of town. The meat (ragout, pork butt, redfish) was perfectly cooked and we loved the beet salad. Great first night for Mom in Austin. Thank you!

Never disappointed at Salty Sow! Everything I have had there is amazing from their Signature Sips to the Organic Beet Salad and Chef's Daily Specials. Does not hurt that they have happy hour 7-days a week!

We found this restaurant through other reviews, as we are on vacation. It was delicious! Despite being busy, the service was wonderful and prompt. The nightly specials are definitely to be considered, as three in our party chose off the special menu.

I enjoyed the food moderately, but some items were VERY spicy and unbearable (should mark them very hot/spicy). The dessert was not good at all (please work on improving your selection and quality). The panna cotta, which supposedly was a special and not among the usual dessert items, was very old and not well made. I will go there again but maybe next year. There are many more good restaurants in Austin to try.

Salty Sow is one of my favorites. The deviled eggs cannot be beat. It is worth the price, but if you want to save $, go during happy hour! I wish they would bring back the tasting menu that had 4 courses on it for $20, because I would probably be there weekly!

The Salty Sow is a really great find. Their food is unique and tasted good. My server was not very good and we were seated at the very back of the restaturant right by the server station for my birthday unfortunately. I would recommend not going too late in the day.

We asked for a quiet table because our friends are Europe and their 1st language is not English. However, we were seated in an extremely noisy area. The food was good and reasonably priced. The waiter was slow to take our order, inattentive, and slow to bring the check.

Overall, I was disappointed. They first tried to seat me outside on a humid day without asking if that was ok and I had made a reservation so should have been given priority. Inside tables were available and I was moved when I asked to sit inside. The appetizer of deviled eggs was good. My meal of crispy chicken thighs was bland but my boyfriend’s pork butt was very good. I was disappointed in the banana foster dessert because it didn’t even taste like banana’s. When dissected there was only a tiny piece of banana in one part surrounded a ton of fried batter. The server was ok. I’m pretty I mentioned it was my birthday when I made the reservation but it was not acknowledged.

Food was generally good but small portion. I had the candied pork belly which was very good and the Brussels sprout leaves. Ironically, my largest portion was my dessert, the Strawberry “shortcake” which used short bread instead of shortcake. While I appreciated the innovation, it simply didn’t work with the short bread.

My waitress was nice but quickly handed my check after my entree which was my first dish. She did not ask if I wanted dessert or anything else and the experience was soured by it. The area where I was sitting the floor would shake every time someone walked on it.

I had higher expectations for this restaurant based on reviews and came out disappointed based on the service and portion sizes.
