EXCELLENT. The hostess met us with the warmest most sincere welcome we have gotten anywhere in Austin. it was a Monday night, but business was steady. The bartenders are amazing. Service outstanding and food divine!

It was our 30th wedding anniversary, and was our unanimous choice for special occasion dining in Austin! We have dined there for many years, and the service and food remain superb. We have, and will continue to recommend this establishment to all.

The food was average, good steak. We had 3 appetizers and were not wowed by any of them. We had the broccoli, brussel sprouts and mashed potato sides, all were very plain. The best part of the meal was actually the forever young chocolate cake we had for dessert, delicious! The service was good, the atmosphere was a tad more casual than I anticipated for dinner; there were a few other patrons dressed in athleisure wear at 6:30-7pm.

Server was attentive but very formulaic and robotic in conversation and service. My entree was not appetizing and I only ate a portion of it...no comment or question from server as to why I didn't eat most of my meal. Sorry we chose to eat here.

We made a mistake on the tip (too much wine) and when pressed by our server we offered to correct it. We split the bill and had given 44 USD on a 390.00 usd bill.

My friend gave another 20.00 and having no US currency I gave a 20 pound note which the service gave to me saying that it wasn't US currency.
1. We didn't have to correct the tip, after all, the waiter had forgot to bring French fries for my son's order.
2. 20 pounds is 30% more than 20 usd, so take it and run.
3. The waiter was from Spain and should have known the difference and not given it back.

All the bread on this visit was left in the oven a little to long it was over browned and had a slight burnt taste and it was not just our table.

Very Very disappointed in this restaurant and our waiter. It was my birthday. Waiter wasn’t very familiar with the menu and simple questions were answered half heartedly.
The meal itself was good but I wouldn’t say outstanding. What was the bummer was our waiter, he really wasn’t freindly and didn’t even ask us if we wanted to see the dessert menu. Hello, it was my birthday. We went ahead and left. THis was our first time to this restaurant and we were very very disappointed. Food and Service do count not just a pretty atmosphere.

One of the best steaks I have had in a long time. Good wine list. A little noisy if that bothers you. Service was fine but not what I would expect at a restaurant of this quality.

The steaks were very good, but the price point was a little high. I've eaten at many fine dining restaurants and the steaks were comparable - but the price wasn't. The calamari was horrible - and comparable to Olive Garden.

Some people might be concerned with the price of Vince Young Steakhouse, but you definitely get your money's worth. Well informed and friendly staff provide helpful information when choosing your dinner items, and the setting is great for an upscale meal. Highly recommend.

The waiter was so poor that is was laughable, zero personality and couldn't guide the experience at all
The food overall was good, steaks were nice cuts however overly salted.
Ambiance was nice but wait staff needs better training and can't have food at the host stand, tacky

We’ve been to Vince Young’s several times over the years and had great food and experiences. This time around was a little rough as we had to send our steaks back twice. Once for obviously overdone and the replacements were way underdone. Third time was the charm and the VY staff was great through the meal, they were courteous and very willing to fix the the steaks and in the end comped our meal. We did not ask for it. All we wanted was our steaks done how we like them. VYs went above and beyond to fix the situation without any kind of complaint or issue. Definitely will return again.

Delicious martinis! Service seemed rushed (for example the bill was delivered with dessert). The meal—we had NY strip, Wagyu steak, potatoes, spinach—was fine. We lost some trust with the restaurant because they’re opaque about specials: a delicious sounding surf and turf trio of shrimp, scallops, and lobster was merely 4 dishes combined into one suggested pairing at the normal price of 4 dishes. That’s not a chef special.

The service was outstanding. Cocktails were good and the wine list was nice. The food was fine. It’s hard for me to get excited about steak. My husband received the wrong order, but it was taken care of quickly. I had the scallops which were tasty if a bit luke warm when they arrived. Pork belly tacos were also very good. The pecan pie for dessert was less than mediocre. Obviously not their best suit. A lovely if not spectacular evening.

The bread was bland and not warm. The appetizer (crab cakes) was okay but came out way to quick. The filet with blue cheeses side and the filet with mushroom side were both excellent. The desert (praline cheesecake) was also excellent. Drinks, service including valet was good but I do prefer a darker atmosphere for a steak house. Also it was Valentines Day and a single rose for the women would have been a nice touch. All in all a good time and I would recommend and would return.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Vince Young Steakhouse. From the moment we entered the restaurant, every employee we dealt with was very courteous, helpful, as well as professional. The meal was excellent— best prime fillet we have ever had. Looking forward to going back. The food and wine were outstanding! We would highly recommend Vince Young Steakhouse!
