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.

Chefs Scruggs and Paul have created spectacular food and wine parings. Four of us stayed 3 1/2 hours in the wine bar enjoying some of the best pate and foie gras that I've ever had. I was impressed not only with a nice wine list $$$$ but also they have one with bottles starting at $26. And, they encourage you... More

Went to Austin for the weekend to celebrate my birthday. I am always amazed by the food scene here, for a city its size, the amount of culinary innovation is really impressive and there are so many great independent restaurants to choose from. The restaurant is a bit difficult to find, even with a GPS and fair warning from the... More

Everything from the ambience to the service to the food presentation exceeded my expectation. The nouveau cuisine experience was delightful, the wine list agreeable, and overall my husband and I had the perfect dining experience.
