My friends and I are staying at the Sheraton for ACL and decided to check out the restaurant for a quick bite. I’m so glad we did. The food was so good and we had the best service! Our server Frances was amazing! We are...definitely coming back for the remainder of the trip and we hope to get Frances again. Thanks,More

The food was excellent and our server took great care to speak to the chef about our food allergies. The kids loved the burgers. The shrimp tacos were excellent. The side salad and side of fruit were very generous portions.

We went for dinner one evening. I have to admit that when we made reservations, we didn't realize this was a hotel restaurant. The ambiance is about what you'd expect for a hotel. They advertised outdoor seating, but these are tiny bistro tables too small...for table settings. Food was decent and price was decent. The dilemma for this place is that Austin has so many great places to eat that you can find wonderful alternatives within a block or two. Maybe not bad for a quick breakfast if you're staying at the hotel.More

We came into Austin for a concert at the Erwin Center and wanted to find a place nearby. This fulfilled the ticket. Being in the Sheraton, there were several conferences in town. Two were having receptions - one at the bar and one in the...Yard, so the noise level was high. But there was also live music which was a nice touch. We both had burgers but I did not want one with a bun. They were very accommodating and gave me a side Salad as well as extra salad on my burger plate. Our server was very friendly. Enjoyed our visit.More

The food is the standard Austin excellent! Eat here even if you are not in the hotel. Great cocktails and menu. Good for a day at the pool, a lunch before a tour, or a romantic dinner on the patio in the evening.

Service was good, but breakfast food was quality was below standard, felt like it was all deep-fried. Atmosphere nice though.

You are definitely paying a higher price for the convenience of having food without having to leave the hotel. The options are limited, but the food was really good! We were pleased

This is the restaurant/bar on the second floor of the Sheraton Austin. I had a nice plate of juicy and tender short ribs on my first night, with very attentive service from Ashley (waitress) and Anthony (bartender). Served with a mash of carrots and cauliflower....My second dinner was less successful. I ordered salmon, only to be told 5 minutes later that they were all out. OK, pork chops. 5 minutes later, I was told they were out of pork chops. Filet mignon was the final choice and it was fine. Ashley picked a great Cab to accompany the meat. The manager came to apologize and comped the main dish, which I didn’t expect and for which I thanked him. Very few folks eating in the restaurant space. Seems like the kitchen operates to cater group meals and room service for the hotel.More
