Service was terrible. Had high expectations, left very disappointed. Food was good, not fabulous. Over priced.
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.
The service was not good. Our server took our order and then we didn't hear back from him until our bill came. The food was so so, definitely not worth the price. Every table but ours received bread. Disappointed.
Outstanding venue with a quality cuisine! Must complete fifty characters in order to post this review.
Great food and service in wonderful atmosphere on river front!
The only thing better than the food was the service we received from John. He provided great recommendations and exceptional service.
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?
We were there for the pre-fixe Valentine's Dinner. We selected the option including the wine pairings. The food was excellent and the pairings were spot-on. The food presentation and serving sizes were perfect. This is a great option for downtown dining.
So our experience wasn't all that great. It started with them cancelling my open table reservation the day of. I quickly went back on and got another reservation for the same time, so I'm not sure what happened. This happened at about 2 PM for a 7 PM reservation.
When we got there we were told we'd have to wait 20 minutes for our table, even though we had a reservation. We went to the bar, but there were no chairs as there was a party in the bar area that took all the bar stools. Nobody else came in to be seated after us and there were several open tables.
20 minutes later we were seated. Right not to a couple with their dog. I like dogs, but I don't want to go to an upscale restaurant and pay $200 to each next to a dog. Sorry, I just think you can leave your dog at home when you go out for a nice dinner.
The steaks were great. The sides were just ok though. Drinks were also fantastic.
All in all, the ambiance of the restaurant is dated and it just doesn't feel like an upscale special occasion kind of place. I'd rather go somewhere that's a bit nicer and has better trained hostess and can honor a reservation without an additional 20 minute wait past a reservation.
It was great! I come to this restaurant only on special occasions but I never make that kind of information apparent in my reservation. The past weekend my husband and I celebrated our 22nd anniversary and we took my in-laws to celebrate. Our waiter overheard when my in-laws congratulated us and towards the end of our meal the waiter came to our table with the MOST AMAZING! dessert on the house!!!! it was plated so beautifully with a big HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!! and to my that is great service ! paying attention to every detail, they did make me feel extra special! Yes, the restaurant can be pricey but the service, the attention and the warm exhibit by the staff toward the guess is priceless. You definitely come to this restaurant not necessary for the status quo but for the experience.
