Steaks were not cooked properly and 22oz ribeye was tough. Pricey for the quality.

They changed the beef for perfect ten from Akaushi beef to wagyu. We prefer the Akaushi for the taste but overall the steak still tasted very good.

Great service and food. I liked the location as well. We had the charcuterie tray, filet mignon, broccolini and mashed potato. All were delicious.

Steak was over salted and burnt, in no way was it wagyu in anyway, just a plain ribeye

For the price and marketing of this restaurant I expected better quality food and service. I ordered calamari for appetizer and these were over cooked and chewy, and not enough marinera sauce. For our diner my wife ordered the halibut and that came out ok, I ordered the lamb rack medium well, and two of the three racks were rare, the other one was cooked to the requested temperature. My wife and I were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and picked this place as the main event but we were not wow.

It was just there. Limited menu, ordered a wine with the sommelier and then after serving the bottle never came back. Dude, we dropped a hundred a head, if you’d come back we’d have ordered more. I think that sums up the place: just doing the minimum...

We arrived on schedule—early—no warm welcome. Service after being seated was adequate. Too long a wait before we were served. I ordered a side dish—haricot vert — ie green beans. They were totally undercooked, and raw. Not an excellent experience. Thank you for asking.

My husband and I went to Vince Young Steakhouse for our anniversary. The service was good, we were sat quickly and the server was attentive. The food was quick to come out and it was OUTSTANDING, we had two 16 oz ribeye steaks along with the mashed potatoes and grilled corn with bacon. The steaks were incredibly juicy and cooked to perfection. The valet outside was also very quick to help us with our car. All and all incredible!!

We SO enjoyed our evening at Vince Young Steakhouse! We were looking for a superb steakhouse for our last evening in Austin. I was a bit skeptical that Vince's name might "oversell" the restaurant since we are in UT territory. We could not be more pleased. This was exactly what we were looking for, and exceeded our expectations!
Three of us in our party, who each know very well what a great steak and great service should be. We started with the calamari that includes fried pepperoncinis. Very tasty and well prepared! We each ordered a filet, one with bearnaise sauce, one with blue cheese, and we all shared the mushrooms and steakhouse potatoes. We chose a fine red to top it all off. Very well may be the best steaks we have ever had. That's saying a lot.
Quinton provided us with wonderful service. He was very attentive, but not overbearing nor rushing us out the door (a pet peeve of mine, especially at a finer restaurant). The lights gave a nice ambiance.
We just thoroughly enjoyed our entire evening. Highly recommend.

Good stuff. Two critiques:

1. Vintage years were way off on wine list. Ordered 2013 got 2016.

2. Nobody seemed to know which cheese was which on the cheese board.

Other than that is was awesome.

One of the best ribeyes I’ve ever had. Price was on point for that quality of a steak. Our waiter was excellent and covered all the bases. Go here for a steak if you’re in Austin.

We went to Vince Young Steakhouse for our wedding anniversary, and it was exactly what we hoped it would be. The restaurant is very nice, with a huge longhorn sculpture in the lobby (photo op anyone?). We had a reservation, but got there 15 minutes early, and to our pleasant surprise we were seated immediately (which was great because we were starving). We ordered the pork belly tacos for an appetizer, and they were delicious. The wine was unbelievable, and our steaks were perfect. Even our 12 yr. old liked the bacon mac and cheese and gobbled it up. The service was also great and we were treated very well, and even honored with a little anniversary dessert, compliments of the house. Great experience. We are definitely going back!

Went here while visiting Austin with the fam for a milestone birthday. Our server Kartay was outstanding. He greeted us promptly, acknowledging our special occasion, made us feel very welcome and explained the menu and answered all of our questions with ease. He was warm and friendly, but in just the right amount- he was magically there if we needed something but let us enjoy our conversation uninterrupted.

So the food, it was delicious. We had the lobster rolls and the shrimp cocktail to start. Huge chunks of lobster in the rolls and the cocktail sauce was amazing. Zippy, but not too much, and you could taste the tequila infusion. For entrees DH and I both had the filet medium rare, and he had blue cheese on his. They were perfectly cooked and you barely needed a knife they were so tender. DD had the salmon, and she isn’t usually a fish person, but she was raving about it. We shared the steakhouse potatoes (worth the extra charge) and the asparagus as sides and they were also well prepared. The birthday boy received a chocolate mousse on the house to celebrate and we also ordered the strawberry cheesecake which topped off the evening wonderfully.

Thanks to Kartay and Vince Young Steakhouse for helping us celebrate our special occasion!

Wow, we've dined all over the country and numerous countries and we can say that this was likely the best all around experience. Our server, Wes, was delightful, interactive, and helpful. He clearly loves his job and does it well! Our 18 year old son requested root beer which they didn't have. Not a big deal to him. Wes, however, returned midway through dinner with a nice bottle of root beer which he ran across the street and bought. That's service! 😀

Wes and their general manager took great care in helping us select a lovely bottle of wine with dinner.

We all opted for the Texas Wagyu steak which was abundant in flavor and prepared perfectly. We thoroughly enjoyed the crispy quail and heirloom & burrata salad, Brussel sprouts, as well as our desserts of chocolate cake and cheesecake.

Thank you for such a memorable experience!

Food was excellent. Steak, sides and dessert. Drinks are crazy now, whoever changed the bourbon to stupid high prices has lost it. We probably won’t go back.

Hello, We are glad to here you enjoyed all of your food. We are sorry you are not happy with some of our bourbon prices. We try to keep our prices competitive with everyone else and feel we do a good job of that. We have a very exclusive list with a lot of bottles we can only get a bottle or two once a year. With those we do have to charge more than we might like to. The rest of our bourbons and even some of the exclusive ones we are less than any other establishment of our caliber.
