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.

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.

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.
