Great steaks that were all cooked to order - medium rare on the Ribeye and the filets. Great sear and very flavorful. The sides of bacon mac and cheese and creamed spinach were really good. Our server Kyle did a great job.

The steak (porterhouse 28oz dry-aged special) was cooked to medium-rare perfection! The sides (mashed potatoes and asparagus with béarnaise sauce) were also delicious. To top it off, the Bellacosa Cabernet and s'mores cheesecake were also delightful!

Overall, awesome portions and reasonable price for a classy establishment in the heart of downtown Austin. The ambiance was quiet and romantic, but I could also see it being a fun spot for dinner and drinks with coworkers or friends.

Everything about our visit to VY was excellent. We even ran late and called them and they still got us seated as soon as we got there. The service was outstanding and our ribeye the tastiest. We loved the pork belly appetizer.

Our first time there, and it was quite pleasant. The staff were amazing, and the food even better. Our waiter made sure we were comfortable and relayed us the specialties on the menu. It was quiet, and a great place for date night.

Overall, we will be dinning there again.

The food was really delicious and our server was nice and attentive. The ambience was okay. When going to a steakhouse, you are usually there for more than just the food. While the food was delicious, everything else was subpar. For example, the hostess asked us what we were celebrating and I told her it was a birthday. We ordered 2 desserts, and neither of them had Happy Birthday written on them. I expected a little more attention to details at a steakhouse and for them to not recognize the special occasion was disappointing. If I had to rank all of the steakhouses I’ve been to, this would rank at the bottom. Food was delicious but everything else was just okay.

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friend's home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Crab Cake was amazing and the Lobster Bisque was refreshing. Everyone loved the Filet steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable." Will definitely be back.

Scott was our server and he was excellent! Timely without making us feel rushed or having to wait for another drink or water refill. The crab cake was the best we ever had - full of crab chunks and not a lot of "filler". Steaks were cooked exactly the color and temp we order. Ended up having a few night caps in bar afterwards. Great vibe.

We made reservations for dinner at Vince Young’s restaurant. We did not know what to expect but we did have a great dinner from the start of been sat down to our table. To the great serve from drinks, dinner and the suggestion about wine section to go with our steaks. Meet and exceed my expectations and have already recommended the restaurant to friends. So when ever they are in the area or ever visit Austin to visit Vince Young..

This is a wannabe high-end restaurant that tries to be fine dining but fails miserably. The food, the service, and definitely the ambience - all lacking.

Food was great! We had the pork chop, salmon and 12oz Filet. Agree with other reviews that the steak was a little on the salty side. Porch chop was the highlight! Not the best wine selection IMO but cocktails were tasty. Our server was very nice, energetic and knowledgeable but service was slow on a Saturday night that wasn’t exceptionally busy.

The food and service was amazing. The ambiance…not so much.

We thought we were going to an upscale steakhouse and that’s what the commercials on TV make it look like. There were people wearing tshirts and ball caps, a table of guys on a bachelor party next to us were loud and cursing up a storm. The interiors felt dated and just didn’t have the vibe we were expecting.

But the food was phenomenal. If you don’t get the pork belly appetizer, you are missing out. But even with the great food, it’s probably a one and done dining experience. I can’t say I’d go back.

We eat at Vince Young’s often and the filets are always spot on. This time however all four of our filets were overcooked. They were all ordered medium but three of four had very little pink and the fourth was well done. The staff agreed they were cooked incorrectly and were great about getting us new steaks. The noise level in the restaurant seemed to be more than normal but I think people are just trying to get out again. Everyone has an off night, we will definitely go back.
