This place has the look and feel of a Santa Monica California restaurant. Fresh ingredients, friendly service, medium price. Only complaint is the 2nd floor can be very loud when its full. Some sound absorption on the underside of the tables would take some of this noise clatter away. First floor and patio do not have this same noise issue. Regardless, you will not be disappointed. Def make reservations for this place.

My rating is based on one visit. The experience was enjoyable, sitting outside under the big oak tree, but I am perplexed on the rating because this is a Cirkeil place and based on the quality of food at Parkside, also his place, we were disappointed. I got the Angus and was surprised at how tough it was and the amount of it that was inedible. My wife got fish and fared somewhat better both in quality and taste. My sauteed kale was very good although quite salty. They have a good cocktail list, including sgropino, and have an appealing happy hour witih half priced drinks and some half priced appetizers.

I will go back based on the reputation of Cirkiel. I for sure will go back for the HH.

Service was attentive and prompt.

I took a friend in town from CA to O&J last evening. It was my first trip as well. We really enjoyed the outside patio and overall ambience. The food was really good and I definitely recommend it. We were disappointed in the wait staff. At one point, my friend said, our waiter just isn't very good. I agree.

Eager to get my own serving from Shawn Cirkiel's newest Italian creation, I met with a good friend on a week night-ready to soaked in the uniqueness of the architecture and decor and that oh so good Italian flair. You walk through the door and you are greeted in a refreshing ambiance, a mix of trying to be upscale chic-relaxed and down to earth. Buono!
The slightly frazzled hostess could not find my reservation and we opted for the upstairs/outside balcony with a limited menu. Sadly, none of the fan's turned into our corner and it was uncomfortably warm at times but hey, people watching can be a breeze while sipping expensive white wine. The service was little too relaxed if you ask me, ladies in all over the place attire and hair do's serving miniature dishes. I took a liking in the toasted bread, asked to get some extra for whatever they wanted to charge me for but that seemed a stretch to say the least. Next time, if I go back anytime soon I will be sitting inside for sure. Keep it Austin...
