Good food and amazing architecture

No real dislikes other than it was very busy. Beautiful building in downtown Austin across the street from the downtown Omni hotel where I was attending a conference.

It was almost everything I wanted. The only thing that surprised me was how limited the menu was. I was expecting a few more choices. We both ended up having the Delmonico steak and it was really was as sublime as I expected a properly cooked steak in a legendary Texas restaurant to be. The staff were so sweet &... More

I visited mid-morning, so no wait. Best Eggs Benedict I've ever enjoyed. Server Eric was efficient & friendly. Hostess was charming.

Three of us dined on medium cooked ribeye steaks and fresh salmon. The steaks are cut square with no fat or bone. Before dinner draft beer and old fashions. Finished off with French Press coffees. Total with tip $250. Valet parking $18. Expensive but worth it! Will make this a regular visit.

We had heard about the historic hotel so stopped in to enjoy the bar area. Beautiful western paintings on the walls, cow hide table tops, six shooters mounted on the walls, fabulous place to see and spend time in. Their cheese soup was "souper"!! Stop in.

I sat down in thd first quarter of the New England Baltimore game. Had to go to the bar for my drink, asked got a menu, got it 30 minutes later. It's halfway through the 4th quarter and I've not been asked if I want to order. The one waitress I did flag down said she'd let my waitress know.... More

Our family spent December 28-January 2 in Austin. We shared many wonderful meals, moments, and memories. One less so was going to the Driskill Hotel on January 1 for their legendary Bloody Mary bar. I checked via email and phone a number of times prior to our visit to make sure the hotel was still doing this event. I was... More

Visited on Christmas Day one of the few restaurants that was open. Amazing decor which harkens back to the 19th century. Make sure to visit the bar and enjoy the excellent food.
