We were looking for a place for supper and saw this place a previous night and decided to give it a try. We called ahead because the previous evening we had problems getting seating for five people. They said they would put us on the waiting list and let to let them know when we got their. When all of our party arrived, it took them about five minuets to seat us. Our server was helpful in letting us know how things were cooked and what the specials were.
I had scallops, brussel sprouts and parsnips. OH MY GOODNESS! It was the best meal I had all week. All of the servers were helpful in keeping our drinks filled and working together. I had to try the dessert, so I got the cranberry bread pudding with Amy's vanilla ice cream. (look up Amy's if you have not been there) It was so good and the portion was big enough for all of us to share a few bites.
Everyone at our table talked about the food the next day. It was a hit! We will be going back when we go to Austin next time!
