Will be returning to this Austin spot again and again.

I recently tried the seven-course wine pairing meal. It was one of the best dining experience in Austin or anywhere. Anyone coming to Austin should try it and then call Uber. The food was excellent and not overwhelming, plus I did not need to be wheeled out. Was not overstuffed at all. Great... read more

A rather unique restaurant. HIgher end. No liquor store, only beer and wine. Our group had the red deer, hangar steak and grouper and all of us enjoyed what we had. The dessert trio was wonderful. One of those dining experiences

Let me start off by saying that the first time we dined at wink, we had a very great time. My second time around, my mom was in from out of town , so we wanted to treat her somewhere nice. We decided that wink was a good candidate . The second time we visited, we were disappointed at our... More

JoJo was our server and we couldn't have been more well taken care of. It was our first time at Wink so we decided on the 7-course tasting menu which did not disappoint at all. The hamachi and antelope were the two standout stars and we had excellent wine pairings throughout. I would highly recommend Wink if you're looking for... More

Our group of six friends gets together every year around the holidays to celebrate at one of the area's fine dining establishments. Wink was the choice this year and we couldn't have been more pleased with the food or the service. The menu changes daily and our group chose to forego the tasting menu in favor of ordering individual appetizers... More

I had the hamachi sashimi with beets to start and the flavors were rich but refined. My entree was the axis antelope with sweet potato and oyster mushrooms which was prepared perfectly. My wife had the seared foie gras with vanilla-parsnip purée and duck breast with creamy polenta. Both were wonderful. The service was first class in this cozy special... More

Location has no ambience- back of a strip center, have to cover windows, but the focus is all on the food. Loved the vegetarian tasting menu, barley with trumpet mushrooms and risotto was amazing. Wine pairings were well selected. Our server, Brad, was very attentive.

We had a wonderful dinner here. Food and service were excellent. My only complaint is the waiter unfolding and putting our napkins on our laps. Feels a bit intrusive. But this is a great farm-to-table place and not hard to find at all.

A highly recommended bijou restaurant that has great food and excellent service. Ideal for that special meal or a family celebration. If you have a special occasion they give you your own headed menu. Which later they all sign and give to you.
