5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2014

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.

We too visited Wink based upon reviews. However, what many failed to mentioned was the lack of Ambience non pictures on walls and poor entrance image. The worse part of our experience, is the owners wife (aka waitress) attempted to educated in great detail despite our gracious request to leave us to own vices. Our waitress attempted to push more...

High quality, very well prepared food. A little on the pricy side but the food is excellent and so is the service.

This restaurant hits my top tier for restaurants with fresh food in sensible portions that are artfully presented. After a poor first impression with a mundane and flavorless dinner roll, Wink recovered quickly. My husband and I both noted the obvious attention to detail in the construction of the antelope dish we both ordered, and each of us detected flavors... More
