Tim was an awesome server - he was attentive to our needs and
provided great suggestions for meals and drinks! The food came out fast, and the facility is doing a great job at keeping the parties distanced.
It was a perfect restaurant for a date. We had a great time and our waitress was amazing! Absolutely recommend and we will be coming back.
Our waiter Camron was outstanding, he has waited on us in the past and even remembered us! The food was good but not at the level we are use too. For having 50% seating the restaurant seemed overly busy. Will go again soon, one of my favorites
I had a great night and our server was flawless!
Enjoyed the experience with my boyfriend. It was delicious and the server was excellent.
Place smells odd. Needs a full bar. Limited menu. It’s fine but nothing to write home about. Definitely not a must experience MEH.
First time at Whiskey Cake and we loved it! Service, food, and atmosphere are excellent.
Reservation was at 7pm. Our server took 20+ minutes to get our orders. Completely forgot to enter my husbands entree (whose birthday it was) & never put in our two orders of deviled eggs for our appetizer. It finally dawned on her she hadn’t put his order in, so she returned to ask what he had ordered & proceeded to have the cooks on the line rush the order so it would be served in sync with ours. Once our food came, my husband asked about the deviled eggs & she apologized once again & stated she hadn’t entered those in either. She put them in & comped them, they came out after we had all finished our entrees. My turkey chili was luke warm. It had taken over an hour from the time of our reservation to get food on the table. My father in law gave her a $20 tip & when he paid in cash she had the nerve to ask if he wanted change for $200 on a $170~ bill when she had already received a cash tip for subpar service. We’ve been here multiple times & this was by far the absolute worst experience we’ve had, & for it to be on a special occasion was the icing on the cake. We both have worked in the service industry, specifically kitchen & front of house as well as other industry related jobs. This was completely unacceptable behavior accompanied with terrible service.
Service was amazing, the food was unique and delicious, and the Whiskey Cake is my new favorite dessert of all time!
Great food. Service was attentive and cocktails were on point.
Our server, Tim, was fantastic! Had a great evening with amazing food!
Love the atmosphere, food, and have always had great service from their waitstaff to their management team. They know how to do things right at Whiskey Cake!
Limited menu in COVID was good. Server was friendly and helpful. Food and drinks were well prepared.
Had a great date
We had a reservation, so we were seated right away. Servers were attentive. Food was great.
Our experience was excellent and the value of food/beverage/service to the price was very good. Our waiter Cameron was very good and Tim visited with us extensively on value-whiskeys. Very interesting and enjoyable. Food was excellent!
We love our experience at Whiskey Cake. Our server Isa was very helpful and very patient. She made us feel so welcomed. We will definitely have this place our to go birthday gathering or just hanging out with our ladies. Thank you!
Even during COVID times you still exceed expectations! My hubby and I enjoyed well made drinks, and delicious food. Never disappointed!
Not their best showing. Candied Bacon was not “candied”, took 12 minutes before anyone came to the table, 1 meal was not what we ordered. Maybe after this Covid stuff blows over they can get back to normal.
Always get the whiskey cake, best food item by far.
Awesome food and great service!!! Highly recommended
Such a great experience! In the midst of Covid 19, we doh d a place that went above and beyond in the safety department and, wow, were so glad we did.
Grayson, was awesome. We were from Houston and the service and knowledge from him was great especially when it came to the menu.
We loved this place. We went for our anniversary and our server was top notch. Def will be going back!
Really great. Cant complain. All went well.
Love every visit. Tasty food that you can’t replicate anywhere.
We visited a month ago fir my parents anniversary and was great. We came in again Sunday and Fransico rememered us which was nice he has great customer service. Thank you.
I’ve been to this place 2x with my girlfriend, and it has been fantastic both times. I highly recommend the goat cheese fondue!
Great service, great food!!!
The grilled SIRLOIN was a very small portion for being the most expensive item on the menu at $24. In pics it shows broccoli comes with it on the side, but it’s just a few little pieces. It was seasoned nicely, but not a good choice for a hungry guy. My wife loved the grilled SALMON and her meal was almost twice the size of mine. We also ordered a side of Rutabaga-carrot mash that tasted like creamy sweet potatoes. Then we shared the WHISKEY CAKE!!!!! It was delicious and almost made up for my disappointment with the small steak. I’d go back for the cake but not the steak.
The restaurant was very clean and they were COVID-19 aware with face masks being required until you got to your seat. The seating was nicely spaced out at least 6-10 ft apart. I also saw them taking the temperature of an employee as they arrived for work. They also had a sanitation station available.
Very good tastes and some unique and interesting menu items with very flavorful preparation. Somewhat unique and delicious (but pricey) cocktails. Been there 5-6 times and never had anything but a great meal. The music is too loud for me, and especially hard to talk with wait staff with the music and now the masks interfering. My top pick among all the La Cantera eateries.
Always get same couple of items...
Salad had a lot of wilted spinach, dressing was thinner than usual with no flavor, little amount of cheese and pecans. Another in my party had French fries which were overcooked and hard. Waitress was not very attentive to asking if we needed sweetener and when we needed refills.
It was wonderful as always! Food was fantastic and service was phenomenal!
First time here, great service and food!!! Thank you!
Appetizers are fantastic. Ask the waiter for drink suggestions not on the menu.
Good food, slower but excellent customer service.
The music was a little load.
Excellent food but service has been horrible last 3 times. They take too long. Spoke with manager about that. Assistance and customer service has to come from management all the way to waiters.
Consistently good, ready for the whole menu to be back though!
I love this restaurant. I've been to the one in Dallas and Austin and the food was amazing in both places. Everything was delicious and staff is great
