Excellent valet service. Over air conditioned requiring the women to wear shawls provided by the restaurant. Very good wait service. Good food but not great despite high prices. Dark atmosphere; not uplifting or joyful. Still a pleasant evening.

We had three couples for dinner. The food was well prepared and served timely. Both steals and seafood dishes were perfect. Excellent. Great wine list. Impeccable service. It is expensive but it is a great atmosphere and a very good restaurant. We sat in the dining room. The bar can be very loud.

Our group went here at the recommendation of our concierge. It's specialty is seafood, but they also offer a good selection of other foods. Only one of our group had seafood, the rest had some version of the NY Strip steak. We also had many sides, including crab cakes, double baked potatoes (mashed), mac & Cheese with Truffles and sweet... More

Busy spot, many servers resulting in good service. Stuffed jumbo shrimp with crabmeat delicious. Swordfish cooked perfectly. Do indulge in the banana foster cake flambé - will not disappoint. Valet parking.

We celebrated a birthday there with a party of 6 (vegans to carnivores) and everyone found something delicious. With advance notice of the celebration the dessert was free and the Bananas Foster cake is a must!

This is a great place for date night or a special occasion. Don't eat in the bar area when they have live music as it can get a bit loud and make it very difficult to carry on a conversation over dinner. Otherwise, the bar or bar area are great. Service is very good and the food is hard to... More

A must for upscale dining. It has a throwback feel. It's not hip and doesn't try to be - its too classy. The menu is fantastic, varied and worthy of a Star.

This was by far one of the best meals I have ever had. It started with great service from the bar. House crafted cocktails were very good. Once seated, Luigi our waiter was attentive, funny, engaging and most helpful. There were 16 people in our party no one complained about anything. I had the sea bass which melted in my... More

This is one of those places that just knows how to do what they want to do. They are a fantastic steakhouse that specializes in incredible food, great service, and very soothing live entertainment. I had the bone in filet and I will say it was probably the best and most perfectly prepared steaks I have ever eaten. Their steaks... More

This is a jewel of a restaurant in downtown Austin. The ambiance is great, the food was magnificent, the live music was stunning, it was a great evening to remember, but... Unfortunately the service was bordering on rude. Upon entering we were seated promptly, after being asked if we wanted to be near the music or in a quieter area.... More
