Best steaks in Austin (maybe in Texas). We eat there 4–5 times a year, which is every time we're in Austin.

Went for my birthday dinner. We had a very good, knowledgeable and attentive Waiter. They had good wine and they let us sit and enjoy ourselves as long as we wished. But our overall experience was just ok Both our opening salads were too wet with dressing. My cesar had a couple chunks of fried parm instead of shaved parm through out. Which was very missed. Dressing reminded me of a fancy ranch. The farm to table salad had a good selection of items, looked lovely. She liked it. Steak..... Please ask for your steak one level of doneness higher then what you like. I wanted a rare ribeye so purposely asked for medium rare. It still came back almost too rare even for me. However, the ribeye was delicious. My lovely date asked for medium (she stated just pink) steak frites and she sent it back because she considered it way underdone. It did come back perfect for her the second time. I think the grills may have been too hot that night. The chimicurri sauce with the frites was a disappointiment. More a red BBQ sauce vs the green herb based sauce it was supposed to be. But it still good, just not what we expected. They brought a delicious little chocolate mousse-like dessert at the end with a candle for my birthday. Decor was average, almost plain The booth seats are not attached to floor, they moved. And noise levels were a little loud until the crowds thinned out..

Very poor service. Were out of multiple menu items. Served bread that was nearly frozen on inside. Mediocre wine list. Unimpressed.

We had a great experience at Vince Young Steakhouse. The restaurant has elegant & inviting decorations. The hostess as polite. The service was on point. We enjoyed the Porterhouse steak for 2. It was aged, seasoned, & perfectly cooked. We like the Brussel sprouts & mashed potatoes. The chocolate cake was the perfect finish to this chocolate lovers meal.

Very nice experience. Great location. Very good service. Fabulous food. The steak was cooked to perfection and the bone marrow appetizer was very tasty. Would highly recommend for a special occasion. Will be going back when in Austin again.

Went to celebrate my brother's 45th bday. The restaurant is nice, with modern decorations. Food was excellent, great portions on appetizers, sides and well made cocktails. A highlight of the night was Vince Young himself was in the restaurant and was gracious to chat and take a picture with us. The only complaint I have is that we felt rushed towards the end of dinner. It was clear our waiter wanted us to leave as it was already almost 11:00pm. I have never experienced this at a high end/steakhouse before. Otherwise, I highly recommend VY Steakhouse.

Delicious food,including the filet mignon and the mushroom and asparagus sides. Other than the food, the experience was ordinary. Very quiet evening, lousy music too loud for venue, so-so service.

We spent hundreds of dollars on a New Years Eve dinner. The food was not worth it at all. It was bland and the dessert reminded me of airplane food. The fried quail appetizer was overly breaded and resembled chicken fingers off a kids menu. The steaks we ordered were cooked fine, but were flavorless and lacked seasoning. We ordered mashed potatoes and mac and cheese as sides. The mashed potatoes were absolutely flavorless. The mac and cheese was overly rich and full of flavor, the sauce was so thick and had the same consistency as glue, rendering it inedible.

This meal was not worth the price. I would not recommend Vince Young Steakhouse and I do not plan on ever going back.

We go to Vince Young every NYE and occasionally throughout the year, and are always pleased. For NYE this year they decided to do a prix fixe menu and everything on it was good. My only complaint is that we could not order appetizers early (for the table or at the bar). We were hungry when we arrived at the bar for a pre-dinner drink and couldn't get anything, not even bread. The meal, the bubbles, the wine, the service - all impeccable, but a little flexibility would have made the night perfect.

We had a great meal, only one of the steaks needed to be replaced. The NYE desserts were lack luster, but the steaks, sides and wine choices were amazing. We weren’t rushed and the servers were kind.

Have eaten here before and had a great experience. But this time we had a small group of 5 on a night that they were not that busy. We dropped over a $1,000 on dinner and wine and the wait was extremely long for everything. Food took forever, felt the waiter was not very attentive and worked hard to upsale us on every wine selection. Disappointing for the price point and based on our prior experience.

I have been an avid fan of VY’s for year, pretty much since it was opened. I had great times here with friends and family but to be completely honest it has gone down over the years. The Staff has become really snarky to the point the manager seems to have to deal with any issue. Additionally the availability of items seems to be an issues as there are normally several items unavailable at any time. Lastly the price feels as if it just keeps going up and up. I visit several of the other finer dining steak restaurants downtown and around town and truly feel as though I’m get good good and service elsewhere.

My husband and I have only visited the restaurant once before last Saturday night. I was surprised that he wanted to go back because honestly the first visit for me was just ok, but not this time. We had the pleasure of being served by Kyle who was knowledgeable and polite. I loved the fact that he held eye contact when speaking to the both of us. Then Chris came and that was the cherry on top. We spoke about wines and appropriate pairings and he even introduced me to a new varietal that typically I would not have tried but his explanation and perseverance prevailed and I am better for it. Keep up the good work gentlemen and owners, please know that the both of these individuals represented your restaurant perfectly.

Take care,
Leslie W.

Great atmosphere. 2 orders of ribeye steak...1 was perfect the other had a large fat vein and wasn’t cooked evenly with parts extremely rare (med rare ordered). Waiter did remove the price of the steak but chef came out and was a bit defensive on the variations in cuts of steaks.

Not our finest meal at Vince Young's. Although out waiter was great, some of the "extra" staff, ie Salad delivery and manager were surely lacking. Some of the meal (Brussels sprouts and steak) was a bit over salty, all-in-all a nice dinner in a very nice restaurant.
