Delightful, sunny Saturday afternoon lunch for us 3 Austinites with our 2 out-of-town family relatives from San Mateo County, CA (in the San Francisco Bay area) with a casual stroll afterwards, around the lush grassy grounds among the several colorful peacocks and baby chicks. Excellent lunch entrees of 'chunky' lobster soup, flat iron beef steak with pommes frites, seafood crepes and tuna & tomato/garlic appetizer. Wait service could have bit a bit more personal and attentive ~ beyond the simple filling of ice water glasses and ice tea. Desserts of decadent chocolate cake and berry-drizzled cheesecake complemented the lovely luncheon meal. All in all the food was delicious, some of the best we've eaten in area restaurants, however, the mansion's décor has become quite outdated and the dining tables are wobbly. (One of our guests had to fold a white lunch napkin under his plate to create a more even surface because the table leaf was bent...) Major refurbishing of this mansion restaurant needs to match the greatness of the restaurant's chef!
