Date night wwith my hubby was dinner and a show atBass Concert Hall. The food was fabulous. I could eat the strawberry burrata salad every day and be happy. I cannot describe how amazing it was. That 1200° over creates a fabulous sear on the steak while keeping it a perfect Med-Rare. And, having other unexpected things done in that... More

A spectacular evening celebrating a joint wedding anniversary with friends. The restaurant is now so popular that, at times, reservations are now required even for bar area seating. Personalized anniversary cards at the table, excellent service by our server Christine. Glass of complimentary champagne to go with our appetizers. All of the food was excellent, as always, and we each... More

Our first time to dine at Jeffrey's was fantastic. Emily was a top notch server and our food was perfect. The martini cart was a real treat and Emily made a perfect Old Fashioned. I highly recommend a delightful evening of elegance with upbeat rock music in the background, and the freshest food made with creative preparation. A real treat!

Great meal! I tore a page of Bon Appetite back in 2013 and I am glad I did. The restaurant is beautifully decorated. The steak was the best I have had in years and perfectly prepared. The wine list is very good and reasonably priced for the offerings. I was really wowed when I asked for couple taxis to take... More

From the reservation, to the Mercedes sedan that picked us up at our hotel our experience was top notch all the way. Our food was off the charts delicious and the atmosphere fit the mood perfectly. Our server may have been having an off night, but hey even lil bit of awkward service from one person was not going to... More

This place is overrated and frankly expensive for what they offer. I know that it has a good reputation but more hype than reality. The staff however are terrific and attentive. We ended up skipping any entre as they were unappealing and had appetizers and salad.

Food and service were both very good. Out of the downtown core in a neighborhood. Martini cart was a nice touch. Arrived at 830 pm and they were already sold out of two of their steaks.

This popular Austin restaurant is not to be missed. Outstanding menu offering exquisite presentations of seafood, pork, lamb, and seafood selections. Delicious appetizers, salads, and desserts. Daily specials and chef inspired creations. Old school waiters with class. Very nice wine list and lots of craft cocktails. Have dined here several times over the years and it's always a first class... More

My wife and I eat out at the best restaurants often and we have yet to find a place that hits the mark more than Jeffrey's. The food is amazing, service is attentive without being on top of you, atmosphere is warm and inviting, and bar menu is creative with maybe the best wine list in town... Jeffrey's will continue...

Description
A passion for friendship, food and wine fed the genesis of Jeffrey's. It continues to endure today. The restaurant first took shape in 1975 when Jeffrey Weinberger and Ron and Peggy Weiss, friends from student days at the University of Texas, pooled their interests, talents, and enthusiasm with three other pals to open an intimate neighborhood bistro in Austin, such as they had encountered in their travels. They were part of the first wave of new American cuisine, and over the years they
made their mark with an original flair that is unmistakably Jeffrey's alone. Chef Deegan McClung is known for accenting regional flavors and ingredients with European recipes and techniques in order to create a unique cosmopolitan style.
