We started going here because of the options of small plates, but we keep going back because of the knowledgeable service, and changing menu. We went again last night - we prefer to sit in the bar rather than the restaurant, it just feels more comfortable with the high tables and leather bar stools. The wine list is not overly... More

Once again Wink proved to be one of my favorite places to eat in the world. The menu changes daily and offers only the very best in local and seasonal food. The service is impeccable from the moment you walk in the door. We have eaten here several times and always find it to be creative and perfectly satisfying. Try... More

Small and tucked away with great atmosphere for conversation. Worth the price. Could add to the Merlot selection. Duck was a bit undercooked but very good. Good choice, try them.

My husband and I chose based on the reviews and proximity to hotel. What an amazing dinner! We chose the 5 course tasting menu which was paired beautifully with wines I had never tasted. Each course was very different from the previous and I kept saying "this is my favorite one!" Chef knows how to excite your taste buds with... More

This place is truly amazing, food is off the charts. Let me start by saying they have a wine bar adjacent to restaurant and offers different menu - we dined at both. Menu changes daily. Wine list is perfect, not HUGE and expensive like the franchise joints. I will definitely return many times.

Definitely one of the most memorable dinners I have ever had. A beautiful, however understated dining room, genuine yet superb service and the food just delicious. Visited the restaurant based on a friend's recommendation and I am very glad I listened! I enjoyed a five course tasting menu with deliciousness that included foie gras, scallops, duck, hanger steak and great... More

Was with a large group so choosing the 5 course seemed the easier way to go. We did opt for the wine as well which made it spendy. The tastes of wine were generous. The portions of food smal but filling. Random acts of Protein is how one of our group put it. Raw fish, scallops, duckand venison.. all very... More

Dined here with my wife Sue for our 30th anniversary. The food was absolutely superb and the service was very good too. I would say you could call the menu Contemporary American and it changes every day based on the availability of fresh produce. Wine list, although limited, does provides a wide range of choice.

The food was amazing. The scallops were delicious and not over cooked at all. And try the foie gras. It's a must. The restaurant itself is small but nicely decorated and has a comfortable intimate feel. The waiters are very knowledgable of their menu and welcome any questions you may have. This is a true austin treasure.
