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.

Responded on July 1, 2019

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.

Two hosts - one inappropriately dressed, the other indifferent and playing with her phone. Waiter Ill-informed about offerings and incapable of accurately describing the offerings. Steak frites salad was grisly though tender. Not a good value for the cost. Filet was over cooked and over seasoned. $5 extra for a plate. Salad was inadequately dressed. Sides were described as “family sized” but were smaller portions only adequate for one large serving or two small servings. Asparagus was old and husky unable to cut with a large serrated steak knife. Manager offered a replacement, but it was identically bad. Overall, it failed my expectations in every way. I’ve had better meals at a third of the cost.

I was disappointed that there appearentally is no dress code. I feel like Vince Young Steakhouse is a higher end steakhouse and they should have a dress code. When my wife and myself went we were very disappointed in the attire a lot of the people were wearing ( shorts , tee shirts baseball caps etc) . The food and service was good but we were very disappointed in the atmosphere.

Hello Blayne, we are glad to hear you enjoyed our food and service. We are sorry to hear you did not like what other people were wearing. In Austin no restaurant has a dress code that is enforced. We do suggest business casual but we cannot enforce it. We want people to be comfortable when they dine with us.

So pleasantly delighted at the evening we spent at Vince Young's Steakhouse. The pre-dinner cocktails were expertly made. We had the carpaccio appetizer which was one of the best we've ever had and gave us flashbacks of being at Harry's Bar in Venice. The main course was equally well done and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The service was first rate and truly distinctive. This is a huge winner in my book and we are very anxious to return soon.

We really enjoyed our dinner tonight; much as we have our other times here. Only comment that we can give to explain the 4 stars for food is that a couple of the dishes (Brussels sprouts and the rice with the roasted chicken dish) were over salted. Everything else was wonderful. Our server was amazing!

Service and food were great as were the cocktails. I was a little surprised at how casual the patrons were at such a nice restaurant. T-shirt and shorts and flip flops for a fine dining experience really takes away from the ambiance. I wore a sports coat and dress slacks. I would have expected the men to at least wear collared shirts and slacks. Maybe it’s a generational difference.
