Enjoyed wonderful meal with excellent service. The king crab appetizer was wonderful. The steaks were cooked to perfections and served sizzling hot. Extensive dessert choices.

It was a week night - we didn't need reservations and we were seated right away. The service was awesome! The food was unbelievable - unique, delicious, hot, perfect! I could not have asked for a more perfect experience for my husband's birthday.

Our party of eight had reservations for 6pm, for which we were seated promptly. If you read the other reviews, you'll see that everything is delicious and first rate, which it is. So I'll spare TripAdvisor readers more high acclaim, which is definitely well deserved, and point out two disappointments. Our waiter, Anthony, was great and engaging... when he was... More

Ed MacIntire has aimed high with Austins and succeeded. Located in a small, unprepossessing strip center in West Metairie, the exterior does not promise much. But once inside, surprise! -- it's major league. From greeting to departure the personnel are well trained, responsive and anxious to please. We have eaten there four times and each has been rewarding with excellent... More

The wait staff was attentive but not obtrusive. Had the ribeye medium raw and it was cooked perfectly. My wife and the filet and it too was cooked to perfection! The sides... More

The menu has both steak and fish entrees, good ones. The waiter helped us making a selection for both the appetizers and entrees. And guess what, it tasted great, close to ideal and they gave us the time to finish the meal and wine. A good meal, and I will certainly go here again.

I have been dining at Austin's for several years and always find the service and food to be first rate. The seafood is always fresh and the steak is to die for. Just in case you aren't already full, the selection of desserts should be enough to do you in. You can't go wrong by dining at Austin's!

Austin's came highly recommended, so our expectations were high. They were far exceeded, then some. We dined on the Saturday night before Valentine's Day so we expected a full house and a staff that had been worked hard. I called ahead and the lady told me that reservations are recommended on the weekend and that at that time they had... More

We didn't have a reservation as we'd just left a 4 hours doctor visit and were greeted without any problems and got a table! It was a busy night for them. We both had steak dinners and they were very good. The broccoli au gratin was fantastic. Wine good as well.
