I ate there with a group of 8 colleagues two nights ago and we were treated to a new menu --- and we all had terrific meals. The service was excellent and the waiter guided us to two wonderful unique wines (at the low end of the price scale). Everyone was happy with their assortments of salads and soups. The shrimp and bacon appetizer was more food than expected and the presentation was perfect. (The bacon was well trimmed and cooked perfectly). Most of the team had the stuffed shrimp, a few of us had the scallops and sausage dish. The sides were wonderful and dinner could be simply a combination of 3-4 side dishes. No one had room for dessert but they looked wonderful too. This was a wonderful meal and if I lived in Austin I would eat here frequently. Also - the meal was very fairly priced. We did not eat outside but that looked like a nice option, if it was not 98 degrees.
