Granted, it was a very busy Valentines night. Further, all waitstaff in Austin are well under 30 years of age, and we are not. The food was creative and delicious, and the ambiance was really cool. Like most establishments on W. 6th St. in Austin,...it is in a converted older house. The only blemish, and it was severe, is how awful the service was. Whether that is the standard or not is hard to tell, but it was an impressive effort at service prevention.More

Nice ambiance, good cocktails, great dessert. They also have dinner entrees but menu is quite limited.

My husband and I went for our anniversary dinner on a Tuesday night. We were treated by complimentary bubbles in nicely designed glasses at the table. Awesome start! The wait staff is stellar with great service and smiles. The kimchi fries are my new addiction....The hamachi was good. The burgers were juicy and the side potato balls are to die for. Nice happy hour on Tuesdays. We plan to make this part of the regular routine. Brisk 8 minutes walk from Whole Foods on 6th to a former former residential home. Love the light Art Deco/steam pump light fixtures and banquets in the dining room on the left upon entry. Thank you for your chef’s menu and hospitality. Terrific experience.More

Met a girlfriend here for dinner. Free valet parking is a huge plus in this part of town. We sat outside and it was pleasant. They have heaters that work well. Seems they maybe a tad understaffed but what place isn't in Austin. We started...with the crispy Brussels sprouts. My friend got the burger and I got the risotto. The menu is limited which I am ok with for a place like this. However, if you have a limited menu the food should be really good. I thought it was fine but nothing that blew me away. I did like the vibe but wish the food was better. I will come back with my husband and give it another shot as every place deserves two chances.More

This restaurant has great ambiance. It’s just on the outskirts of downtown and I see that as a plus. The food is phenomenal. The chicken and burger were unbelievable. They let us try what appeared to be fried hash browns but they were fried mashed...potato balls - WOW! The service was so good I can’t wait to go back. Food - great, drinks — awesome and the service was 5-Star. I would recommend Nightcap to those who are looking for great date night destination. Kudos to the manager and staff who made the evening awesome. Nightcap will be in my Austin restaurant rotation.More

Nightcap is an oasis of tasty food and calm, a mile away away from the noise and drunken crowds of downtown during SXSW, but an easy walk from the convention center. The presentations are quite lovely, the dishes were creative and cooked perfectly, and the...service was great. Highly recommended.More

This place has jumped on the plate sharing trend. The portions are small but priced as full entrees even the items listed under "mains". I wouldn't want to pass on this place based on their current rating because the ambiance is nice, service is great...and food is good.More

Found this strictly by researching reviews, and walked over from our AirBnB. What an awesome contemporary minimalist vibe, elegant decor, mellow but friendly efficient service, and outstanding locally sourced menu. Great bar too. Anniversary/special event quality dining!

Tasty drink but not much snap. Comfortable and charming. Attentive staff. We didn't have time to try the food. But it was a nice bar menu.
