Although the food was very good, and the service excellent, this place is extremely overpriced. Not sure how just opening a restaurant in a downtown section, expecially Austin, allows you to charge big bucks.

While we are thrilled that you enjoyed both our dishes and service, we are sorry to learn of your disappointment with our pricing. As fellow food enthusiasts, we pride ourselves on serving some of the best prime steaks in Texas, and we utilize the freshest ingredients to obtain the highest quality. In fact, our prices are in line with the other steakhouses located in downtown Austin, and often we are able to offer an even better value. We hope this provides some insight into your concerns. Thank your for your candid feedback. We hope to have another opportunity to wow you.

Best wishes,
Laura Brown, Co-Owner

And it was cooked and served hot and medium rare! Wow! Finally a steakhouse that takes my order seriously!

I cannot count the number of times my steak has been over cooked in other restaurants but when dining with two business associates at Vince Young my steak was perfect! Hot, delicious and absolutely wonderful. The side dishes of spinach, mushrooms and mashed potatoes were excellent as was the calamari appetizer. Yes, you pay a premium for premium food but we were happy to do it.

Service was superb. All three steaks were served at the same time by three servers and we didn't feel rushed when we sat and discussed business for a long while after our meal.

Great place, great steak. Definitely will return!

Thank Ron L

This restaurant provides great food and service, without snobbery.

All of the food was delicious, in fact it's the best steak I've ever had. But truthfully, I've never paid that much for a steak before.

Bring your appetite and your checkbook. An 8oz Filet Mignon was $42, and that price doesn't include salad or side dishes.

This is a great restaurant for special celebrations.

Thank Sheri S

Whether you are a fan of Vince Young, you need to give this restaurant a chance. Five of us ate there last night. We tried the quail and calamari appetizer (quail recommended by waiter). My wife and I split the wedge salad. I had the bone-in strip. Other people had red snapper, filet mignon, and a steak frites. The sides are served family style. For sides we had sautéed spinach, mushrooms, and a corn dish.

The food was only out-done by the service. Our waiter's name was Michael and I suggest you ask for him. He created a great evening by interacting with us and yet he did not intrude. He clearly knows his job very well. I think we ordered something from every part of the menu and everybody was very pleased. Our group ranged in age from 26 - 76, so my comment is that this restaurant will please everyone.
