VY Steakhouse was a perfect combination of laid back ambiance with excellent food. We partook in the Happy Hour, and were very surprised at the quality of food for the price. Also, drinks were on point.

The food tasted good and service was good but, there was nothing new that vince young's steakhouse brought to the table. Could have possibly bought the same meal for cheaper.

We had off the menu Tomahawk steaks that were perfect with excellent side dishes and dessert. The new Pecan tart, recommended by Scott, had a dollop of butterscotch ice cream on top. I highly recommend it. I’m hoping that one day they can bring back fresh sweet corn infused with bacon, it was our favorite side. The quality of service, food, ambience, wine selection and noise were excellent, which can be considered the norm at Vince Young’s Steakhouse.

We are very disappointed the lack of communication from your restaurant! We had a reservation for dinner on Dec. 30th, however when we arrived the restaurant was closed. While we totally support the restaurant closing due to COVID, we did not receive any communication through text, phone or email notifying us that it was closed. Next time, please make sure all patrons who have a reservation are notified in a timely manner if the restaurant closes unexpectedly.

This was my first time eating at Vince Young Steakhouse. On my Anniversary celebration this was a great evening of dining. The food was superb and the surprise red velvet cake was delicious. Thank you staff/waiter we will be back again. 👍

Food was delicious and cooked just right. Puzzled why some meals include one-to-two sides, I.e. vegetable, starch; but if buying a steak, sides have to be purchased.
My party of six was a bit cramped with the wiggly booth. Spouse asked to move to a table, but was told they are all reserved. All seating is reserved, so that response was not appreciated. Waiter stated to request a table next time. Open Door dioes not provide that information.

Me and my girlfriend went on a date there and she is very picky about her steak and restaurants. We got to our reservation early snd they still sat us our waiter was amazing and explained everything to us and the appetizer was amazing along with the sides and steak. One of the best experiences I’ve ever had.

Our all time favorite steak place! The macaroni, mashed potatoes and broccolini are all chef's kiss! And the Mexican martinis 10/10! All the staff are soooo sweet, even the Valet staff.

Unfortunately we were sat near a rather large boisterous group of nearly 30 guest playing Christmas games. Totally inappropriate and was the only negative of my experience.

This has been our favorite steakhouse ever since it opened. Before that we had gone to a previous steakhouse just up the street. But Vince Young is by far the best. The service the food the ambience. We are never felt rushed and we are fully attended to. Food is always cooked perfectly. We highly recommend this to anyone looking for the best steakhouse in Austin.

Horrible service and very slow despite it being a quiet night. Needed salt and pepper for every dish because they were so bland. Steak overdone.

Food was prepared perfectly, presented beautifully. Service was great! Couple of things to note... we thought it was a lot of money for what was served. The menu said lobster tail, but my husband was served half of a lobster tail. One quail for $16, wasn't worth it. Have never seen bread sold as an appetizer for $4, strange? The noise level was way too high for us to have a conversation, and for that reason we won't go back.

Great spot, we had a wonderful waiter named kip I believe. He was an older gentleman who went above and beyond to make out pre Thanksgiving meal special. Everything was cooked to perfection.

Service wasn’t great, took 25 minutes and us asking for a waiter before someone came by. When we received our food the order was wrong. Several tables in our vicinity had similar issues. We did get two desserts for free to make up for the issues.

Everything was excellent and top notch. A little surprised we had to pay extra for bread. But that’s okay - we were celebrating so it was not a big deal.
