Vince Young Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
We had the Perfect Ten steak and it was unbelievable! Best steak EVER. Our waiter was Quintin and he was fantastic. Very attentive in just the right way. Service was wonderful. We were celebrating our 46th wedding anniversary and we were served a dessert that was very special.
I highly recommend Vince Young Steak House.
I was very excited to take my sister-in-law for a special occasion to the restaurant. I knew it was pricey, but $18.00/glass of wine as the cheapest one you sell was really too much. Our Cesar salad was not fresh, and a bit "dry". Our steak was not juicy as I wanted it to be. We did get the creme brulee, and that was very good. Having said that, the service was good and the waiter was very friendly.
Worst service ever. Almost 20 mins to get water and even be greeted. Food courses were not paced properly and we were waiting around awhile in between orders.
Ceaser salad is not as listed and instead served like a wedge salad where you basically have to DIY your own Ceaser salad by cutting through thick
wedges of lettuce.
5 of us went to celebrate my daughter's graduation. Be prepared to spend $100/person. The artisanal cheese appetizer was very good. Steaks were very good. Everyone who ordered a filet said it was one of the best they'd had. My bone-in ribeye was only so-so. Dessert was out of this world good. Service was excellent and attentive, but not overly so, all night. And of course, the spirit of Vince Young and the grand days of UT football glory capped the whole experience.
Made a reservation for our anniversary. The hostess and wait staff were friendly. The waiter knew the menu well and was quite entertaining. The steaks were flavorful and grilled to perfection. The side dishes, served family style, were large for the two of us. We ended up taking the leftovers home. For dessert, they brought us a special chocolate mousse treat with a candle and the platter said 'Happy Anniversary'. It was a great evening. We look forward to our next visit.
Made dinner reservations for my wife's 50th birthday. Planned on getting there early to have a drink or two at the bar prior to dinner. Only to find out the bar was closed to customers due to a private party that had reserved it for several hours. To say we were disappointed would be an understatement as the bars ambiance was exactly what we were looking for to begin our romantic evening together. The food and service was very good, however the evenings beginning tainted the dining experience.
For my girlfriends birthday, we decided to go to Vince Young’s steakhouse. We’ve been in Austin for quite some time and wanted to attend a local favorite. The food was delicious. The steaks were prepared perfectly and our waiter even suggested that we “Vinceify” her steak and that was the best thing that Scott did all night. Our waiter was MIA for the majority of the night. Every time we flagged him down to ask a question, he was long gone. It took him 15 mins to bring us water even while my girlfriend was coughing. He brought us food we didn’t ask for even when we asked him for clarification to make sure he understood what we were asking. He was very unattenative, rude, and for it to have been such a special occasion, he did not make us feel like we belonged. The owner was able to rectify the situation and took care of the meal, but at the end of the day, I still left with a terrible taste in my mouth because it was my girlfriends birthday and I wanted to make it special.
My husband had the bone in New York and it was delicious but that was the only good food. The Caesar salad was bland. The pork belly was inedible. The service was adequate but not up to Austin standards and the hostess was flat out rude. We won't be returning.
It was our 55 th wedding anniversary. Very much enjoyed our meal and the waiter was very helpful. Wife had a small sirloin and I the rack of lamb ... both were excellently done.
My only comments are that we felt the Brussels sprout were overdone and that it is rather noisy.
But in general ‘very’ good food.
Well our appetizer was not served in time so it came after our main course. We didn’t pay for it (manager comped it for us) but it was still part of the experience and I was hoping to get the appetizer first and have the date go a bit longer. Also when our steaks were delivered no steaks knives were provided. We had to request it and it took few minutes for us to get them. Our waiter was awesome, Quintin is really good at what he does!
Great service. Menu was very difficult to read due to lighting and slightly small font size. Noise level was higher than last visit, because all diners were placed in the front two dining areas. Our dining area was very crowded, while the back dining area was empty. Dining room was a little dark to navigate through. Presentation of food was lovely. My food was slightly better than average. My friend seemed to enjoy her food very much. The young man at valet parking was very nice and efficient.
My reservation time was 8:15, I was not seated until 8:25. It was our wedding anniversary, we ordered our meal it took over 40 minutes. When the meal arrived the sides were cold. I ordered the perfect 10 steak it was 10 ounces of solid fat with 2 ounces of meat on the side of it. The Waiter was nice and I could tell he was doing the best that he could do. My wife and I did not say anything because we did not want drama on our anniversary.
Our party of four each had a different steak - the best of them was my son's dry-aged ribeye with a mixed seafood topper. All steaks perfectly seasoned, cooked correctly-medium rare for the table.
Wedge salad split in the kitchen for my husband and I, so we didn't have to do it ourselves. Small detail, but important. Great service, attentive but unobtrusive.
Good selection of wines by the glass as well as a robust wine list-on the expensive side, but this is a special occasion restaurant so it's to be expected.
We've been wanting to try Vince Young's, and living in Austin we have several steakhouse choices. We chose VY for the variety in the menu, and it did not disappoint.
This was our second time eating at Vince Young Steak House. Our food was excellent. I had the Perfect Ten steak (it's actually a 14 oz. rib eye) -- the flavoring of the steak was excellent. My fiance had the 8 oz. Filet Mignon -- the flavoring for her steak was excellent as well (we tried each other's steaks). We shared a house salad that was very tasty. We also had side orders of creamed spinach and potatoes gratin which were very tasty. My only recommendation is to come hungry -- I can normally eat a 14 oz. steak without much problem...however, I was only able to eat about 1/2 - 2/3 of my steak.
I eat out more than most, and had been a bit hesitant to try Vince Young Steak House. Hate to say it, but mostly because of the name. Lets face it, entertainers and sports figures aren't generally known for much, outside of their chosen profession. Anyway, I was looking for a decent steak in Austin. Most of the well known steak houses all serve meat from the same purveyor. So basically same steak, different places. Flemmings, Trulucks, Eddie V's, etc.... All the same. For a decent steak, generally I have to go to Bohannon's in San Antonio, or some of the many in Ft Worth. Anyway, I was delightfully surprised at the meal we had. Wasn't the typical lean/dry steak found elsewhere. We had the Rib Eye, Lobster, Asparegas with bernaise etc. It was actually good. So were the appetizers, Pork belly and lobster rolls.... We wanted the Fois Gras but it wasn't available for some reason. Over all, I thought t was decent. I will go back. I will say, that the Bar is hurting.... It reminded me more of a sports bar than a bar in a steak house. In fact, the bar was pretty dead, even though the restaurant was very busy. Which says a lot. I also thought the lighting level was a bit bright through out. They should tone that down. The wait staff was very attentive, and the menu was very complete. They should visit Eddie V's or Truluck's bar and get some ideas. This bright loud bar with no music and football on isn't good for much of anything, other than drinking a beer. Not drinking fine wine, and certainly not taking a special someone to.
