Vince Young I really wanted to love everything about Vince Young's Steakhouse- it was my idea to eat there - and when you walk into the foyer and stand in front of their Longhorn penny bull you know you're someplace special, but we got off to a somewhat rocky start.

Deciding on the spur of the moment to treat ourselves to a fancy dinner, my husband and I opted to try this steakhouse located in downtown Austin. Because we are fortunate to live close by, we didn't have to negotiate the road construction outside and worry about either valet or finding our own parking. If you have a car, have... More

I'm truly disappointed to see this review, and I completely understand the way you feel -- like you, I'd be reluctant to return to a restaurant like ours if I'd been treated poorly there. I realize you don't intend to return, but I sincerely hope you'll reconsider sometime -- this isn't who we are, and I guarantee that we can... More

If you are interested in fine dining no matter your taste preference this is the place. My duck was cooked perfectly. The fois gras was the best I've ever ate. And the amuse bouche was a great touch. While I abstained from the complimentary wine pairing, my partner was satisfied. Wonderfully friendly staff. Didn't oversell. Offered to customize anything, even... More

You're right to expect perfection, so I wish we had been able to demonstrate that.

Ate here last night with friends for the first time. Service was very good and their dry aged steak was worth the high cost. Not a place I would go to often due to the prices, but if you are jonesing for a good bit of cow, then Vince Young is a good place to enjoy a nice red wine... More

After spending many special occasions here, with the food always incredible, one aspect can't be overlooked, service. The experience can be completely altered if the waitstaff is not up to par.

You're right -- excellent service ties the evening together. It's upsetting that we've fallen short of that standard, especially considering how much you've enjoyed dining with us. Clearly, your waiter should have taken much more time to ensure that you were comfortable, and to explain our options in further detail. We apologize for that, as well as your calamari --... 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.

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.
