We had been here before, but wanted to see it now that it has been redone, and it was terrific. The restaurant is beautiful now, with a lighter and more neutral palette than before. The food is even better: try the empanadas, they’re spicy and delicious, and the boar ragu pappardelle and the cast iron chicken were excellent. Too bad I was too sick to eat dessert. Gee, guess I’ll just have to go back for it!

Be aware the restaurant is under renovation and is now set up in a converted ballroom. The service and ambiance was lacking but the food was good. The prices were much too high for what was received.

It should be noted on open table that the Four Seasons and Trio are undergoing a significant renovation. The restaurant and its staff and furniture have been moved into a small ballroom for a temporary period of time. The food and service quality are in no way diminished but the ambience is temporarily lacking.

Trio is being renovated, so it is currently in a ballroom. Tables and chairs are not what you would expect from a Four Seasons. Gnocchi and cerviche appetizers were good, but small. My fellow diners had redfish and Chilean sea bass and liked both dishes, but my rack of lamb was difficult cult to cut and salty. Popovers were left in oven too long. Crime brûlée desert was good, but very small. Overall good, but disappointing.

We were quite disappointed by our experience. The restaurant (in the Four Seasons) was under renovation which was not known to us until we arrived. We were given the choice between eating outside, or eating in the ballroom, at which point we probably should have left. We selected outside and, while the servers were relatively attentive, this was not the fine dining experience that we would have expected (but that we paid for). Service was slow, the food overcooked and, at the same time, cold upon delivery and the ambiance was no better than dining on someone's home patio. While we are not likely to be back at all, renovations are supposed to continue for 2-3 months, so I wouldn't suggest anyone else going at all before September 2018.

In a word - disappointing. The food was exceptional, as I would have expected from Four Seasons; however, it was not ready at the start of the brunch (buffet foods still in plastic wrap). We weren't notified until 20 hours before our special occasion that the hotel was being renovated, making the brunch a limited item selection and "view seating" non-existent. We were offered patio seating, but with 90 degree weather this top-of-the-line hotel couldn't accommodate misters or fans. I would rather the hotel not advertise their pricey brunch until the renovations are complete. It is highly doubtful I will ever return. Instead I will continue to drive to San Antonio to experience the world-class Sunday brunch at La Mansion.

Unfortunately, the evening was uncomfortable due to the noise level from the bar patrons. We understood there is a remodel in progress but until its completed, we'll have to skip Trio. In addition, we were there for a pre-theatre dinner, but did not receive the discount that was advertised, nor the parking pass. We indicated on our reservation it was pre theatre and also told the waiter. The noise level was incredible as the bar is also in the dining space. Too bad!
The food was excellent and we can't wait until Trio is back into a new space.

Sat in the bar for happy hour on Saturday. We were the only table for quite some time. I feel like they didn’t pay much attention to us. Follow up service was definitely slow. None of the food was anything specials. The crispy Brussel sprouts were not crispy, the tuna on the tuna tostada was good, but it was very dry. Needed more sauce or something and the chip it was on was totally uninspired. A wonton chip would go a long way on that dish. Steak fries were good, Kung pao cauliflower was good, but all in all definitely wouldn’t go back before checking out lots of other places first

Went with a colleague for appetizers and dessert. We had the yellowfin cooked on the Japanese hot stone, pork belly with a quail egg and salads. The hit stone preparation was exceptional visually and well as taste. Dessert of s’mores was also unique and great. Not inexpensive but well worth the splurge

Bountiful variety in food options and beautifully presented. Highly professional and friendly wait staff. Beautiful room. Always meets or exceeds expectations. Can't wait to return.

If you dine out often this place would not be memorable. Quality was above average and in line with the Four Season standard but this meal was very vanilla. Nothing memorable or worth going back for. In a city like Austin I could find many better choices.

The service was second to none, our server John was pleasant and had the best personality. Each of our dishes were cooked to perfection and full of flavor. We were celebrating my mom's birthday and rather than offer a standard chocolate or cheesecake, the chef put together a chocolates and berries plate that was just perfect. It was just what she would have wanted and was really thoughtful with the "Happy Birthday" message in chocolate as well. Three of us shared the Kansas City Strip and sides, while one of us had the Iron Chicken. All fabulous. If you are looking to be treated fabulously while dining on the best meals, look no further.

I took my three teenage sons to celebrate their excellent report cards. Many places would give lesser service to a group with teens — but not the Four Seasons. Our waiter was super attentive and engaged with all three boys. We had the smoked ribeye, bone-in ribeye, NY strip and filet mignon. All were perfectly cooked. The appetizers, salads and desserts were excellent. My sons proclaimed it the best meal of their lives. Well done Trio.

This is our very reliable go-to venue for a Sunday brunch. The quality of seafood and service is consistently high, what one would expect from Four Seasons. They have started charging $1 per mimosa, bloody Mary and champagne but the wait staff make the experience quite seamless, removing any potential awkwardness. The pours are very generous and the refills are prompt. The valet parking rates have gone up.

I expected a more intimate setting and a more formal environment. My date and I were in suit and dress. There were people in shorts, flip flops, t-shirts, and yoga pants two tables away. Another table had kids in shorts and playing. I understand they were probably hotel guests. Nevertheless, if I am spending $200 on dinner, I expect more. Food was very good, but pricey. The waiter "accidentally" charged me for one cocktail too many at $14. For the same amount of money we could have dined at Truluck's or Eddie V's.... 10x the experience and ambiance.

Also, when booking, I was given the impression that later seating was unavailable. However, upon leaving after our 6p reservation I noticed over 50% vacancy in the restaurant. I assume you must have more walk-in guests from the Hotel than online bookings.

I won't be coming back. I live here in Austin and dine out weekly. I have had positive experiences at other hotel restaurants as well. This just wasn't what I expected from the Four Seasons.

I made the reservation several weeks in advance to celebrate the birthdays of two colleagues and called to confirm it several days beforehand. The food and service were excellent and did not disappoint; however, I was disappointed in that I had requested a window table through OpenTable's reservation and then again when I called to confirm. I was told they couldn't guarantee a window table and when we arrived they had no open window seating, but I saw that there was a reserved sign on one window table so why not accommodate my request?
