TRIO - Four Seasons Austin Ratings and Reviews
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?
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.
Our meal was excellent and service was very good. Wine is marked up higher than other comparable restaurants which was disappointing but the Ceviche was wonderful. My wife had the Filet Oscar and loved it. I have the Pork Chop which was very good. Crisp Brussel Sprouts and Coconut Cauliflower were excellent sides.
The only issue was the restaurant could not find our reservation, Our reservation on the Open Table app showed the correct date but the confirmation email had it for the following day. Seems like an Open Table issue.
Ohhhhh my. The hotel of course is beautiful and posh. We got to place about 45 minutes early, but they seated us immediately, which I appreciated. The menu offered interesting choices and we were excited to try. I ordered the salmon, my partner ordered the filet. We got Brussels sprouts and mushrooms for sides.
My fish was very good and the avocado mouse was delicious, but on the thin end oh my salmon, the bites tasted very much like steak. I wondered if they grilled the fish and steak on the same surface. Not a complaint, just odd...I like steak, but would have preferred the salmon flavor all the way through. The Brussels sprouts were yummy.
My partner ordered her filet mignon medium rare. We are used to a small line of pink. It was well done and dry. Just as she's poking at it a manager comes by and asks how our meal was. Partner says, "well, I ordered it med well, and it's well done" manager, who was sweet, began to stammer as if she didn't know what to do. She offers a sauce to put over it. REALLY? Then finally says, they will cook her another one. My partner fumbles and mutters..um...well I'm HUNGRY and dont want to wait, I will make do. So, here is a tip to the manager. Say, "We are going to make sure your steak is perfectly cooked because we only serve perfection. But for your inconvenience, we will comp you the steak, and bring an appetizer of your choice on the house to tide you over" None of that happened. My partner ate her $40 dry steak as was. The mushrooms tasted delicious, but they were very stringy, and very slimy, I don't know what went wrong there, unless they were canned. Inedible texture. Meal is over and we get our $400 bill. Which wasn't our bill. Some hoopla then to straighten it out, we thought--, until we had to call the manager tonight because the charge went through our bank.
So....a 4 star hotel, a 2 star experience. Too bad.
Duck was bad. Replacement stake was great.
The onion bread soufflé they serve you is strange. Overly onion and looks undercooked in the middle.
Cauliflower was fantastic, but didn’t go well with the meats, even it was recommended.
French fries were nice and crispy, bit too salty and priced at a steep $11!
Service is outstanding, but didn’t compensate for the disappointments.
Great for a steak, tasty veggies, and friendly service!!!!
On an early Sunday evening we acquired a round table for six people in full view of the landscaped backyard. Everyone had a different entre, with shared dishes of olive oil mashed potatoes, and brussels sprouts. The surprise is the 4 inch fresh popovers and bottomless tea pots. Definitely recommend for Sunday evenings, when many restaurants are closed.....and a really good meal is hard to find.
The restaurant was nice with the setting and the inside of the restaurant was nice atmosphere, but needed some low music. There was no music at all. Food was fabulous, but the drinks were weak for the price. All mixer and not much alcohol. Overall it was a good experience. Loved the smores outside at the firepit.
Very over priced for the quality. The Salmon was dry and very well done when it was ordered medium rare. My friend had the filet. Although it was cooked as ordered it was just an average run of the mill steak. We also ordered the spinach and curried cauliflower. Neither were anything to brag about. For $160 I would expect that the food would be amazing. So disappointed.
The only problem that I had with this reservation was your website information. Your website listed the price as $180 for 2 people with a bottle of wine included with the meal courses. I chose TRIO because of this price. As I compared to other places and what was offered, TRIO seemed like the better deal. When we arrived I found out that the wine was not included, but we did receive 2 free glasses of champagne. When the check arrived the price for the meal was $250! I inquired about the difference with the manager. She was very nice and explained that the $180 was for a buffet that they did not offer on New Year's Eve. She took the cost of the wine we had off the bill, but I still ended up paying $70 more that I expected. I would have chosen another venue for that price. I will not be using your website anymore for reservations, as I do not have trust in the information provided. I will be contacting the venue personally for any reservations in the future.
Christmas Eve Dinner a la carte. Food was only fair. Service well-intentioned but thoroughly unprofessional with long delays punctuated by rushed removals of courses when served. Wine list extremely limited and the manager 'couldn't find' the bottle I ordered until midway through the first course. Prices pretty high for food and service quality. Willing to give them a little slack because of the holiday crowd (noisy) but not enough to return or to recommend. Disappointing.
This was a disappointing experience. The wait staff were slow and ineffective. We had to request some items several times and wait a long time to receive it. By example, our first request for a single scoop of icecream was not acted upon. The second request took a full 30 minutes to arrive.
The food itself was good however was not up to the standard one would expect . Our previous dining experience at Trio was exceptionally good. This visit left much to be desired.
Biggest issue was very inattentive and sloppy service...the servers tried to serve from one point at the table, not moving around to each individual. Drinks poured carelessly (although wine was poured very well).
Just less of a refined experience than I expect for a fine dining establishment.
The service was slow. Food - run of the mill. Not what it used to be. They over fried the steak fries. I have gone to the Four Seasons since 1989. I had not been back for 6-7 years and was disappointed. We were seated right next to the beverage station and still felt ignored.
Fabulous food and excellent service. Medaly was our server and she was wonderful!! Mandy (pastry chef) surprised us with some amazing chocolate to celebrate almost 20 years of marriage (our wedding was there)... and that gesture was so unexpected. Love this place!
