My husband and I visited this establishment last night and were both very eased! Our waiter was Gary and he was great! Gary was very informative and knowledgeable with the menu! He gave us superb service! We started with the cheese plate. It was very nice with a great presentation. I had the bone-in filet that was the tastiest steak... More

The staff and service at this restaurant are amazing. We were celebrating a birthday and reserved a private room which was beautiful with the wine cellar lining the walls. I noticed several reviewers complaining about the expense. You do not go to this restaurant expecting a cheap steak or an average experience. The service was fantastic. The steak melted in... More

I have been to Vince Young's Steakhouse twice now and have loved it both times. Excellent choices on the steak menu and the flavor is amazing. Highly recommend the corn with bacon as a side. The wait staff was great from start to finish and even gave my wife a special surprise for her birthday. In Austin, this one is... More

Dropped in with friends and we were sorely disappointed. Prices were sky high and everything was a la carte. My selection was fried calimara and it was so salty it was inedible. Waiter ended up taking it off our checks. No free parking available and the valet was $10.The salad was fresh and tasty. My recommendation is go somewhere else.

I'm so sorry you were disappointed, Joe. We take pride in serving outstanding meals, and we apologize if you found your dish too salty. Of course, I will check in with our team about this, but I'd like to address your point about our pricing as well. We make sure that all of our dishes are even more affordable than... More

Made a reservation for a recent Friday evening after a prior downtown function. Although our expectations were high based on all the local advertisements neither the food nor the service really stood out from the fare of "nationally owned" steakhouses in downtown Austin. Although we split a single meal (large ribeye) and a moderately priced bottle of wine, the $275... More

There are lots of fabulous restaurants here in Austin, and we're proud to be considered one of them. However, it's upsetting to hear that you weren't as impressed with our offerings. We use prime steaks and fresh ingredients in every dish, and as such we have always believed that our quality was well worth the price, and we always make... More

We went to Vince Young's for a college graduation celebration. We were a party of 6. My first impression of the restaurant was that the décor was dark and outdated. While the restaurant was kind enough to move up our reservation to a half hour earlier (due to timing with graduation ceremony), they seated us in what I would call... More

Moving up your reservation was no trouble at all, so I'm glad that you were still able to celebrate with us. However, it seems that we fell short in several areas. First, please allow me to extend my sincere apologies on behalf of our server. We can assure you that accidents like this are extremely few and far between, but... More

Just had dinner here last night with 4 business associates. Service was incredibly unobtrusive which was a huge plus and not always the case in restaurants. Dinner was all steaks for us and none disappointed. Be a little decadent and order the bacon Mac and cheese as. Side dish. It was incredibly rich and flavorful. All around a great dinner... More

The steak was really good. But the locale was a little bit sterile. Staff was service mined. I do have a little problem with the menu, that not serving a full meal. That i have to chose different part that not really match. Isn't that what the chef shall do?

So happy to hear that you enjoyed your steak, Strupo! However, I'd like to address your concern about our menu. Most steakhouses in the states serve each menu item a la carte so you can best customize your own meal.
