Fabulous as always! My filet was perfectly prepared, and hubby really enjoyed his grass fed rib eye. The broccolini was delicious. It was crunchy and lightly seasoned. Wes, our server, did a great job. He was attentive without being overbearing. He was knowledge about the...More

We had the butteriest lobster rolls ever and a delicious crab cake with jalapeno aioli for appetizers. The steak frites were outrageous - beautiful cuts of meat and fabulous fries. Plus, it was my birthday and our waiter brought us a gorgeous chocolate mousse cake....More

Went there for my birthday last night, and I have to say, for the amount we paid, one would expect the service to be flawless perfection, and it definitely wasn't. First of all, while no one wants to be rushed, the service was extremely slow....More

Steaks were steaks, nothing special and typically overpriced. Unfortunately, I ordered the cheesecake for dessert. YUK! What arrived was a creme cheese flavored gelatin dome on a lime zest crust, sprinkled with spiced apple chunks. It bore absolutely no resemblance to a real cheesecake, and...More

Excellent dining experience with a couple of business associates. I had the dry aged bone in filet which was grilled to perfection. Wine selection is great and the service we received was impeccable. A must if you're visiting Austin.

Pretty darn good. I would have used a little less seasoning on my meat, but that was it. When I say I'm jaded, I come from an area known for its bar-b-que. My steak was cooked to perfection as was my wife’s. You have to...More
